okay to the Aoi Sekai Chuushin watchers/haters can we all appreciate how nice a guy Gear is

In an anime full of hot girls and freaking Tetris attempting to fit in everyone, you have Gear’s fight with Opal. Winner gets “whatever they want.” She loses and (because fanservice) gets her shirt ripped to shreds. Presented with an unconscious, half naked woman, what does he do? Gives her his shirt (well, his overshirt) and a piggy back ride back to the town.

And his victory request? He wants them to stop fighting. Because she’s apparently a lot nicer than he thought. What a nice guy. :D

A cookie if any of you have even HEARD of Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de. If not, here’s a run-down:

it’s based on the 16-bit console wars between Nintendo and Sega, telling the tale of the Hard Wars of Consume between the Ninteldo empire and the Segua kingdom. The main character Gear represents Sonic. For some reason, the anime adaptation only had three episodes, which all aired months apart. The manga has exactly zero fan translations no matter where you look.

HOWEVER, if any fans are among my followers, you’ll be pleased to know they ARE planning to officially release the manga in English starting in Summer, under the name World War Blue.

(And not to be a fangirl, but Gear and Tejirof are hotter than any of the female leads :3 )

UPDATE: I just checked, volume 1 is confirmed for July, volume 2 for August, and volume 3 for November. Mark your calendars. For some reason, you can preorder volume 3 on Amazon, but not volumes 1 or 2.
