This series of posts (Characters I Can Relate to) might be slow on the updates, but I think it is necessary for the sake of collecting these lovely characters in whom I find myself through some of their antics and behaviors.
Spring 2014 was already over, but let me bring back to life some of my thoughts, which were never really carved in any stone or tablet.
The first entry is, of course, Hades from Kamigami no Asobi, which was an enjoyable series, considering my not-so-good general opinion towards reverse harem/shoujo anime because of the bland heroines. Thankfully, Kusanagi Yui isn’t completely a lame protagonist and KamiAso was, in my opinion, successfully entertaining in trying to highlight a different male lead candidate in each episode.
Anyway, Hades is obviously my favorite from the series because I could easily self-insert into his character because of the creepy coincidences with my own personality.
– He’s an introvert, one who doesn’t normally mingle with others or talk too much in front of a group of people or crowd, but doesn’t mind talking to anyone when it’s necessary, or when he deems it fun to do so.
And I am like that, too. I don’t normally talk, even if others think I should, because I tend to just process my thoughts in my head without feeling the need to share those thoughts to others via speech.
– He emits a gloomy aura, which I think I also emit.
A classmate once told me to smile more often because I look too stiff, or even threatening, especially when I am just silent and wearing my default poker face. 😐 And since my eyes are big, I look like I am silently judging a person I am incidentally glaring at. I personally find this trait of mine to be quite a problem that I have to solve.
– He is bad at communicating with others.
Uh oh, please don’t judge me. Regardless of how I seem to be a nice person who can talk to anyone face-to-face for straight hours, I am really bad at conveying my own ideas and feelings to others, even to my friends. When I try to speak during heated discussions, conveniently enough, others cannot hear me, as if my voice blended well with the background noise. Of course, I highly regard everyone else’s ideas, but the result is that I often get ignored in discussions. That is honestly depressing, so I just stay quiet. This has been my auto-pilot mode for years now.
And… OnoD, why are you so adorable?
So that’s the glorious collaboration of Hades and yours truly.
