Top 5 haikyuu characters that are not animated yet?
Aaaah yes! There are so many characters us manga readers have met that I can’t wait for all my anime viewers to meet and fall in love with!
1. The Miya Twins. I think that us, as a fandom, will never be over the Miya twins revelation. I feel like they are the most popular manga-only characters, especially after the incredible amount of content we are getting lately. I fell in love with Atsumu during the training camp arc, and now that Osamu is there too things are only getting better. Also, GIVE ATSUMU MAMORU MIYANO’S VOICE, I’M BEGGING YOU
2. Daishou Suguru. I can already feel how much the fandom will spit in half the moment our Daishou will show up. Personally, I adore this little snake. With him, we’ve finally got a character who was a perfect opponent, almost a villain, who showed no mercy, who targeted the weak, who was powerful both mentally and physically, who’s manipulative and not afraid of using dirty tactics during matches. He’s not a good boy, at all, we’ve all been mad at him sooner or later, but this only shows how well written he was. And don’t lie to me, we all got a little bit emotional seeing him again during the nationals :’)
3. Teradomari Motoki. Saw you there and I thought: Oh my God, look at that face. You look like my next mistake. Apparently, I have a thing for buffed and gel addicted wing spikers warning the number 4. He looks so much like Bokuto my heart skipped a beat every time he appeared in a panel.
4. Hoshiumi Kourai. His style and physical appearance are very similar to the Little Giant, and the manga is already setting up a great rivalry with Hinata, which I’m very much looking forward to. Also, I can see lots of Bokuto’s personality in him and I’m sure that, if Bokuto never met Hinata, he would have chosen Hoshiumi as his own heir.
5. Komori Motoya. MY GIANT LIBERO SON. He’s so pure and friendly despite his position as the best (and tallest) libero of the series. His is a shared fifth position with our favorite hypochondriac bean Sakusa, because all their interactions are nothing but pure gold.

Although I respect people’s opinions, I can never bring myself to understand why there is so much hatred for Hinata. She loved Naruto since the very very beginning. I think that itself is enough reason to adore her because she was never against him. He didn’t have to prove himself to her and she acknowledged his beautiful personality before anything else. Meanwhile, mostly everyone had to witness Naruto’s physical strength before actually taking him seriously. Hinata was on Naruto’s side even before he could summon a shadow clone properly, before he could call himself a ninja, when everyone was so fixated on the nine tails that they treated him like he wasn’t human.
Forgive me if it seems like I’m comparing but when people put team 7 before everything, I close my ears. Don’t get me wrong, I love team 7 but when I think about Naruto, I don’t just solely think about Team 7. When we put team 7′s bonds before everything else, we are demolishing the bonds that Naruto shared with others. We are demolishing the fact that Naruto was alone. Every aspect (even the bad ones) in Naruto’s life should all be taken into account and not just a fraction of it. The fact that he found the woman of his life, I would think that people would be happy because the manga starts with this…
And ends with…
If you truly think about it, Naruto’s life is being told chronologically from his years as a boy, to a teen, to a young adult, to a full grown man. The ending is quite beautiful because it shows us just how much Naruto has grown; the fact that he found love! Who would have ever thought that knucklehead Naruto would get married… being the first one out of Konoha 11 at that?! It shows that in the very beginning, he was bereft of love… and the ending is basically his earned blessing because now, he’s united with the woman who loved him even when he was just that kid who sat on the swings and sadly watched everyone from afar. It depicts his adulthood. When watching this wedding, we shouldn’t be thinking “Why did it not end with team 7!” Instead, we should be thinking “Naruto has grown up” or “He’s not that kid anymore!” It’s his wedding. That marks one of the best days of his life.
Meh, everyone’s entitle to think what they want. This is just how I look at it. This is why I truly adore Hinata and the ending. While I do feel like Kishimoto should have added more into the ending, I am still grateful for the results. In fact, it makes me want to cry when taking in the beginning of the manga to the ending. Watching Naruto as that lonely kid and seeing him now…Kishimoto did such a wonderful job with explaining the aspects of Naruto’s life. I am so proud of Naruto. He’s accomplished so much and now he’s gifted with a woman with such a beautiful heart.
She even faced death for him. We see this puny little kunoichi fight a super strong evil shinobi like Pein and lost with the intent of protecting and revealing her love for someone who has saved her from herself; someone who broke the chains of insecurity and self affliction out of her. That itself tells you that Hinata has a story of her own. She went through spiritual battles herself so you shouldn’t trivialize her feelings and the role she plays in Naruto’s life. She’s a person too… and she is not perfect. People spend so much time with expressing their hatred for her character when even Hinata herself admits her flaws and expresses her need for change; expresses how she doesn’t even like herself.
In a way it’s kind of like you tell someone “I hate you” and they respond “I hate myself.” She’s not ignorant of her character flaws and that itself makes her even more of an incredible character because this whole time, she acknowledged her bad sides and it gave her more of a reason to want to change into someone stronger. Naruto was the prime source of her strength because he is the perfect example of what she’s trying to become. He motivated her to pick herself up and continue to work hard as both a person and a ninja. In return, she felt like she owed him her life which is why she didn’t care if she died on the battle field. Her sacrifice confirmed how strong and genuine her love really is. This moment in the manga defines just how strong Hinata had become over the years as both a person and a ninja.
I don’t see why it is a problem that she wants to be by Naruto’s side. We are already aware of the fact that she loved him since young. When you love someone, being by their side is more like an instinct. This is why she impulsively intervened in the battle the way she did… and other times…
And, you wanna know something that I find hysterically hilarious? Is that she actually makes it her duty to be by his side. She legit wants to protect Naruto more than he does for her. She wants to be there for him more than she is actually capable… and she BLAMES HERSELF for why he always ends up being the one to save her in the end. It’s hilarious because this girl legit loves this guy and there are still people that don’t actually realize that (I respect your feelings though, but still). Even when she is tired and out of energy, she still tries to make a way to be by his side. Even when she knows she will die, she still tries to find a way. It is plain and simple… Hinata LOVES Naruto. Period, point blank.
But then again, who’s to say that she’s the only impulsive one?
Those subconscious feelings are stronger than a bitch.
Every time she helps Naruto, it is suddenly a “problem”. But, the crazy thing is… every time she DOES help him, he BENEFITS from it completely.
He even admits it every time. If it wasn’t for Hinata’s encouragement, he would have never had the confidence to defeat Neji in the final competition. In fact, he probably would have gotten his ass kicked simply put ^_^ He even THANKS Hinata for uplifting him so sincerely. Naruto’s depression vanished very quickly and now he is back to being himself… positive and full of energy; full of life and strength. Turns out, he actually likes Hinata as a person and understands her better.
Even her intervention during his battle with pein benefited him seeing that Naruto was going to die on spot after all. Next thing you know, he was able to meet his father, he was able to defeat pein, rewarded the title of the village hero, and luckily for him, he is still alive. He even acknowledges that Hinata’s sacrifice was a “save” on his part. He knows that Hinata wants to protect him hence he clearly assured her that she has already been doing that.
You want to know what’s really interesting about this panel? It reminds me of this…
Mind you, Naruto wasn’t exactly confident about his match against Neji (Like I mentioned before). Hinata uplifted him very quickly just like Naruto was able to uplift her as soon as he sensed how dejected she felt for being saved by him during the war. They are both very good at encouraging each other. It’s like an “eye for eye” sort of thing because they have the answer to each other’s insecurity. You would think that Naruto would have shared his worry to this team mates for those who believe that Team 7 is EVERYTHING. But apparently, he didn’t. For a girl that he considered weird, gloomy, dark , and timid , it truly amazes me that he entrust telling her about his weaknesses than the people he’s been “bonded” with throughout his early journey as a ninja. I’m not necessarily belittling the importance of Team 7 but rather proving that it is NOT the most important thing in the series. We have to be mindful of other characters too because they contribute a lot to Naruto’s character alone.
He even acknowledges the fact that she saved him from falling into the traps of Obito. He genuinely thanks her and also acknowledges that she “stayed at his side.” So, if Naruto can happily come to terms with that, then I don’t see the “problem.” In the end, he is back on his feet and being the happy knucklehead that we all know and love. We should be happy that Naruto has people like Hinata in his life that will sacrifice a leg and an arm for him; like his parents, like neji, etc. When putting Team 7 over everything, you are forgetting about those other precious people and things that were put in action to ensure his growth, his potential, and the extent of his passionate feelings as a character. Deny it or not, Hinata aligns with all of that and there is nothing no one can do about it.
“But Hinata isn’t relevant to the series because she doesn’t get a lot of screen time.”
Does the quantity of moments dictate how strongly Naruto feels about a person? Are we really going to let time away from a character dictate someone’s relevance to another person? Because, as far as I’m concern, Naruto has never spent a day with his mom or dad… but they are still upheld as important to him. Sasuke has been away from the leaf village for over 2 years. Even in their adult life, Sasuke has been away from the village for around 12 years (if I’m correct). It doesn’t change the fact that Naruto and Sasuke are very close. If screen time was genuinely relevant, then he would have let Sasuke go over the years that he actually spent time trying to find him. Jiraya has been dead for quite a long time… but Naruto’s feelings for Jiraya hasn’t changed. He still cherishes his god father with every drip of blood in his body. Gaara and Naruto are from different villages (we don’t get to see Gaara all of the time) but even that doesn’t dictate his bond with Naruto. Shikamaru is not even on Team 7 but he and Naruto are basically close as well… just like the of rest of konoha 11. Iruka hasn’t had all the screen time in the world but who did naruto ask to be his father in the wedding? Naruto even cherishes that sweet adorable ramen guy (the dude who NEVER gets screen time). So, can we please stop making everything about screen time? It doesn’t necessarily matter. The QUALITY of the moments he share with another character is what truly defines those special bonds. Believe it or not, he shared quality moments with Hinata hence there would be no point in the genjutsu meaning anything to him. Once he was able to genuinely decipher those moments, that is when he came to terms with his own feelings for the Hyuga. He was able to realize how he felt about Hinata all along… and it didn’t take THOUSANDTHS of moments for that to happen.
Thank you so so so much for your messages about Cardinal Cross!
To be honest, that game has a sentimental value to me. I wrote the script of the game at a VERY difficult time for me, and it was my only escape for a time.
I gave it everything I possibly could, because there is a huge part of me hidden in the game. With my thoughts and some of my own feelings. Not just the characters, but the environments and the history.
So getting these enthusiastic responses really made my day. Thank you so so so much. =)
I was actually worried a little, because Chapter.1 is the calm/quiet one of Cardinal Cross. The rest of the script won’t be as happy. :P
Anyways, again, thank you so so much! I’m hoping to finish it as soon as I can, and in the meanwhile, working on my other VNs/games.
Linen Tale info:
So, since I promised I’d give you Linen Tale demo as soon as I can, I already started working on it.
I actually changed the resolution of the screen to 1920x1080, and so I had to remake the layout of the menus, GUI etc. But I think it looks way better than the old version, so that’s a plus. :)
Looks cute, right?
Until I have the rest of the artwork for CC, I’ll be working on Linen Tale, so expect some LT teasers soon! :)
I’m still working on the game during my free time, but I’m already WAY ahead of the alpha demo I’ve shown you already! RPGMaker really made things easy for me. You are worried about how it won’t be the same etc. But please don’t worry. =) There will be lots of cool CGs like this, made by PrinceOfRedroses who is also the artist of the Ascension manga. It’ll be pretty cool, imo. =)
I’ll cut this info thread short for now. =) I’ll write more when I have more info/updates.
Hope to see you again very soon! In the meanwhile, please enjoy Cardinal Cross demo! I can’t wait to hear more of your opinions. =)
I think you have said it once you have been in the fandom (snk) for quite awhile. Since when if i may ask? And one more thing, i ship ereri too (that's why i found your blog in the first place and i really love it) i wonder if you have any specific moment in the anime or the manga that made you ship them? Sorry for the long ask <3
No need to apologize, I love talking about ereri! And thank you for liking my blog~! I’m so flattered~
Alright so, I don’t know where to start umm.. To be completely honest, I actually kinda already started getting interested in them even before I knew what Attack on Titan was lol. And this was during the early days of 2013, when SNK was the shit in social media, I saw a bunch of ereri fanart, photoshops and memes everywhere and I was like “who the hell are these characters??”. And that’s when my curiosity took over and I had to see what the big fuss was about “Attack on Titan”, why was it so big. Then I watched it, fell in love with it and it’s characters and started to grow an unhealthy obsession with it. But anyway, that’s not the real reason why I shipped ereri.
What really made me ship them was when Eren had his first proper encounter with Captain Levi in the dungeon (episode 13 of S1). When Eren said he wanted to slaughter all the titans, and that Eren’s crazy determination and willpower automatically sparked an interest in Levi. I also liked how Levi’s uninterested and cocky attitude changes when Eren starts getting in a murderous/beast-like mode hehe, cuz then afterwards he’s like “oh shit, he’s not a guy to mess with”.
So then I was beginning to get even more interested to see how their relationship would go from there. Another scene that I really liked between them was when Eren accidentally transformed unwillingly, and that caused Levi’s entire squad to snap and go in attack-mode, blades drawn. But Levi, the captain, was the only one who was protecting Eren (episode 19 of S1). He was the only one who kept his cool, and had an intuition that there was some misunderstanding going on, he even ordered his squad to step away from Eren immediately. Shows how Levi was already beginning to show some care for Eren.
It’s also other scenes like these that I cherish because I think it’s completely necessary where Eren and Levi DO need time alone to talk to each other. And because it’s very rare to see them have a talk and a moment to themselves, I value these moments very much, no matter how short the moments are. (I’m too lazy to get into detail with these but they basically represent relationship development and Levi’s concern for Eren slowly growing).
Also, at the end of episode 25 in S1, where Levi rescued Eren. Even though that scene wasn’t in the manga, I’m grateful for it and I value it.
And that’s where I started jumping deep into the manga because I was so interested to see Eren and Levi’s relationship develop throughout the story. The uprising arc for example, had a big impact on me with ereri because every moment they had together made me ship it harder and harder and HARDER.
Plus all the official art, the visual novel, the interviews and the everything. And I just… I love them. I love them so much. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this much love about a ship before. Ereri really does something to me haha. But anyway, I could go on but I think you get the picture.
I think Eren and Levi make a lovely combination and I love seeing their relationship unfold and grow into something deeper than just captain and subordinate. Therefore, I think they would make a beautiful couple.
Today I feel like adressing one of the most popular topics in the Kuroshitsuji fandom, the BL subtext. The male on male fanservice has always been prominent in the series, has stirred up controversy, attracted many. annoyed some, and even spawned a funny rumor that the manga was supposed to be a yaoi one. The last statement, which has aready been proved false, has it’s roots in the author’s past as a yaoi artist and the shota BL works that she published under her pen name Yanao Rock. For this post I decided to read one of those works, Glamorous Lip, a one-shot consisting in six different short stories, and take note of the similarities with Yana’s current and most prominent work, Kuroshitsuji.
First I want to note that with these observations I am not trying to prove a point or encourage any particular view of the manga, I simply thought that getting to know the author’s tastes might help to make future predictions on the current storyline.
As a fan of Sailor Moon for so long, do you also feel like you’d do anything for a new story, instead of rehashing the same story arcs? I know I do. I’m dying for a new story line, something about Crystal Tokyo coming, Neo Queen Serenity ascending to the throne, or just a new massive baddie they need to fight. Or skip all of that and just get to the year 3,000! Just give me something new!
How about you?
I would’ve loved the same, actually when Crystal was announced I was hoping that it would be a brand new story because I already knew what goes down in the manga and I didn’t need to see that again.
A prequel to the first arc would’ve been awesome and epic, all the shit that went down before the storm and led to the events in the first season of Sailor Moon.
The destruction of Silver Millennium.
The development of Princess Serenity and King Endymion relationship.
Queen Beryl’s background story and her downward spiral to evil.
Queen Beryl killing Princess Serenity and King Endymion.
(In the classic anime, Princess Serenity is killed by Queen Beryl whereas in Crystal/manga she kills herself)
The sacrifice of Queen Serenity so that Princess Serenity and Silver Millennium could have a second chance.
Watching all of this building up and the actual outcome would’ve been majestic.
Also I picture the last episode’s ending (after all this drama) being the beginning of the first ever Sailor Moon episode and that would’ve been awesome.
A sis can dream.
PS: This hypothetical season I just made up would even have room for your beloved shittenou x senshi romance so I’m sure everyone would be happy with this season lmao.
We need more BakuDeku Fics where Deku is like “NOPE” to the idea to date Kacchan, he already likes Kacchan as a friend, but as a lover? what?
I know we already have Falling, but we need more fics like that because in others fics deku just make a blind eye to the past bulling of Kacchan and is like “I always loved you too!”, we need more fics of Kacchan trying to show that “yeah, I was a Asshole, I’m still are one, but not that much, I’m sorry, let me show you that I can be the best boyfriend ever”
I want to Kacchan study shoujo manga to be A++ Boyfriend material and Deku just have so many mixed feelings about the whole thing.
As someone who recently managed to find the first volume of No Regrets (I live in Portugal) I have to say, that the OVA is... lacking... I very much enjoyed the fact that both Farlan and Isabel are much more in dept that they were in the animation as well as their relationship with Levi. Also Erwin's everything! His characterization is so good in NR! I also enjoyed the fact that we ACTUALLY learn how Erwin discovered Levi and Co. It was very enjoyable to read. Now I need to find the second book!
Hello Anon! I’m so glad that No Regrets has found it’s way into your life. I have to confess that it was the OVA that first got me curious about Eruri, but then I read the manga and there was no turning back. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the OVA but the manga has a special place in my heart. You might have already realised that from my user name of course :} All the characters are much more nuanced and the way that Erwin gazes at Levi with such wide eyed adoration admiration just slays me.
If you haven’t managed to find part 2 of the manga yet, you can read it online here Horizon Scans ACWNR, along with all the side stories and special edition art work. I particularly like Special Chapter 3 which explains how Levi meets Farlan. Special Chapter 5 is pretty fabulous too, with Levi headbutting Keith Shadis and Erwin taking the piss out of Flagon.
Of course the best thing about the manga is Erwin in full on messiah mode at the end. Gets my every time. Why they changed the ending in the OVA is beyond me.
Fujimaki Sensei (Mangaka of Kuroko No Basuke) started a new series called Robot x Laserbeam! Some of you might already know about this, but many of us don’t. It’s a fairly new manga!
BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT!!! LOOK AT THE CHARACTERSSS!!!
This guy is a splitting image of our basketnerd. Oh god. He’s what all of us imagine Aomine would look like if he groomed himself better (hothothothothot) The same attitude towards the sport they love the most, the same dorkiness. omg.
I never knew I needed to see what Daiki looked like with long hair.
ah shit i think i’m already hooked
it’s apparently about the orange haired guy who has never held a Golf club in his life but managed to defeat Miura in one round. His name is Robot (he’s a cutie too help)
AND LET’S NOT FORGET THE SIDE CHARACTERS
(tell me Rion doesn’t look like kise UGHHHHHHH i’m adopting him too) while I haven’t started reading it myself i thought it’d be nice to share it with all of you who, like me, just swam back to shore from all the Kuruko No Basuke Last Game feels.
There’s no way that I can beat Ushiwaka. Our bodies are different. Our experience is different. The time we’ve given volleyball is different. There’s no way that I can beat him. But… I’m planning on stopping at least a few of his spikes
-dekubowl (basically class A/literally everyone + midoriya)
-momoshin/shinmomo (?); shinsou + monoma
This blog has all ships sailed; any pairing is welcome because I love all my children so much godfuckin dAMN
2. For the first season, all 13 episodes have been aired. The second season is still airing, with 5 out of 25 episodes already out at this time.
3. I don’t fucking know, man. I’m personally just glad that Horikoshi sensei sat down one day and decided:
“you know, what if I wrote a superhero manga about the most goddamn adorable son on earth and call the superpowers ‘quirks’ instead? But like instead of generic story telling and power ‘upgrades’, I’m going to make the character development so fucking good you’re gonna learn to love even this asshole over here! Also, you know what-”
you get the idea.
And so ends my long winded answer to this blog’s very first ask. Huzzah!1!
Keep sending in any questions or even just pop in to say hi! It makes me happy to see messages in my inbox :)
Antoinette is so hilariously sassy in this manga and I love it.
In this scene, it’s part of her journey through Austria to France, and her brother Joseph accompanied her for a little while.
They’ve watching a performance, and he says she shouldn’t be looking so sad when everyone’s here to congratulate her. Then he starts waxing poetic about how he knows she’s a little nervous, she’ll be in a country she doesn’t know, meeting a spouse she doesn’t know. He tells her a marriage of state doesn’t have to mean a marriage without love, telling her to think of their own parents, or of him.
He says admittedly their parents were childhood friends and already knew their feelings, but he and his first wife Isabella apparently fell in love right when they first met and that fateful meetings like that do exist.
Seems to me you were a lot less happy with your second wife.
Your Kirishima art literally fed life back into my tired body (I stayed up very late to finish an assignment). Your art is so so nice to look at I love it! I was so happy when you got into BNHA (cuz I followed you for your A grade FT stuff) and I was hoping you'd also like Bakushima! I hope one day you decide to draw them because I'd probably die. Both of those Kirishima pictures are now my lock and home screen (Hard and Soft Kiri respectively)! Keep up the good work! ❤ P.S. Animé or Manga?
Ahh!! I’m so glad you liked it! Kirishima is such a sweetheart, I had to draw him! I’m already drawing some bakushima tho! xD
I’m mostly watching the anime, but once season 2 will be finished, I’ll catch up with the manga :3
Horikoshi already has two trans characters in his manga so i hope he'll pull through for us and make bakushima canon
It depends on what you mean by canon. I can easily see Hori not giving Bakugou a female love interest and leaving him and Kirishima together until the end. They may have a lot of intimate moments throughout the series, but the status of their relationship may be ambiguous or left up to interpretation. I’ve seen shounen do something like that. That kind of ending would make sense considering Bakugou is focused on becoming a hero and Kirishima is beneficial to his hero development. Their Quirks are compatible and Kirishima helps Bakugou grow as a hero. Why wouldn’t they be a good match as life partners (or romantic couples)? That’s what I’m predicting/hoping will happen. It makes sense given the development of their relationship.
