I had a lot of fun making this redraw, I hope to do more in the future~
My favorite manga boys, who I fell for from first to last
Ranma from Ranma ½ was definitely my first manga love. So dorky and boyish, yet rough around the edges and so very tortured by a past he could not control, as well as incredibly strong and protective. He lead me to…
Inuyasha from Inuyasha: a Feudal Fairy Tale. Oh man, I fell head-over-heels for this guy. And while he was a bit more serious than Ranma was, he still had the main things I love in a male lead: Rough around the edges, tortured by an uncontrollable, sorrowful past, yet still strong and protective. Once I started writing fanfiction for him, I never turned back!
Tamahome from Fushigi Yuugi was next. Can you say “Crazy intense love story that 15-year-old-me couldn’t get enough of”? From the moment Miaka fell into that wonderful book and she laid eyes on him I was done for. Again, he’s got those same amazing traits I can’t seem to live without: strong and protective. I’ll never get enough, it seems. Also, I named my golden retriever ‘Fushigi’ after this series (Fushi for short, rest her soul), and NOT after that stupid Fushigi-ball thing that was all over TV for an instant.
Ugh, talk about tortured. Kurosaki from Dengenki Daisy was tormented by the knowledge that he killed his best friend, and his promise to watch over his friend’s little sister. Smart, skilled and quick as a whip, Kurosaki was harsh and even somewhat sadistic at first, with a crazy strong and protective streak. The fight within himself to hold back his feelings got me so crazy, and I mean, look at that smile. Can you blame me?? I fucking love you, Kurosaki.
Last but not least, I leave you with Hak from Akatsuki no Yona (Yona of the Dawn). Tortured because the chick he likes likes his best friend? - check. Tortured because his best friend murdered his crush’s father and tried to murder his crush? - check. Incredibly strong and protective? OMG yes, so, so much I can barely stand it. Don’t even get me started on the other guys in that group, okay?? Because all of them together are just too much, and it’s like Mizuho Kusanagi reached inside my head and pulled out everything that checks my list in this manga series. Why has she written such a perfect story?? WHY?
So interesting too, because every single female lead in these series are all kind of naive and weak at first and then, despite their amazing protectors, really step up and manage to hold their own.
