How I feel about this character: He’s a downplayed (?) version of Jonouchi. His temper isn’t as short, but he mirrors him in many ways. Honda is not one of my favorites and Jonouchi shadows him in my eyes, of course. Still, love the way his bromance with Katsuya is framed.
All the people I ship romantically with this character: Shizuka, only because I know he’ll take good care of his bro’s little sister.
My non-romantic OTP for this character:Well, it’s gotta be with Jonouchi.
My unpopular opinion about this character: I think he’s physically stronger than Jou, but Jou has more fighting experience
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: See how he came to be friends with Katsuya, like, a whole flashback.
Just wanted to let you know thy you're in the right about all of this ryou drama. I don't understand why some don't like you to have your own opinions,though I think some people are just bandwagoning because they don't know what actually happened.
I appreciate the fact that this is coming from a Ryou fan, so thank you very much.
My post was never about all fans, as there are people like you who look like you’re willing to listen to why someone doesn’t like something in particular, rather than act out the way the Ryou fans did today. I also have friends, who I have mentioned several times, who like Ryou. Actually, love Ryou.
One of the reasons I do dislike Ryou fans is because, to a lot of them, he is a trend. What you said there, jumping on the bandwagon, is what I see a lot of Ryou fans do a good majority of the time. I know a lot of Ryou fans who like him just because they think its the popular thing to do. And that bothers me a lot.
I made a post dissing the Ryou fans, on my own blog, and they acted how I expected them to. Not surprising, but entirely disappointing. They could have at least tried to prove me wrong, but they really only made themselves look like fools and made matters worse.
