Yo! Well tha’s my first headcanon(more like personal opinion), don’t blame me, i want leave smth in this fandom expect my edits.
So mostly of Akutagawa fans calls him “my emo child”, “my emo son” and this totally makes me suffer. Idk only me or other too? Don’t misunderstood me, u can call him as u want, but big part of this fandom associates Akutagawa with emo culture.
I have even saw post, where user helps to not mix up goth and emo. It was actually made for fun i guess and i shouldn’t take it close to heart, but it feels like only emo can be depressed and only goths can feel too much feelings. Also only goths listen to Evanescence and emo listen MCR only. COOL.
Even one my friend told me that Akutagawa may listen to MCR, Marilyn Manson and etc.
I just want to tell just about some my headcanons that filled my head for a long time.
- First Aku isn’t emo, because of his ourfit.
Frill, jabot - how many emos u have seen wearing them? Isn’t it gothic attribute? Otherwise Akutagawa’s outfit is pretty minimalist
His daily outfit is pretty minimalist too. I don’t see propensity to emo’s fashion.
Next, Akutagawa’s hairstyle is not from emo’s fashion too. I won’t be afraid to say, that’s it’s more gothic, than emo
(aku with his white stripes reminds me my fav gothic metal singer sorry)
- Second Akutagawa is angry and depressed and it makes him emo automatically.
What a nonsense, actually it’s already a really silly thing to sort characters to subcultures only by specefic traits. Yep, Akutagawa is angry mostly of time, and looks like he wants to kill everyone, but I totally belive that inside he is soft man and if not hard childhood, work in port mafia, his ability, he would grow just an oridinary man. Also don’t forget that he has a special relation to Kyouka:
HE CAN FEEL OTHER FEELINGS TOO!!! And it’s only one example that he cares of people (not all, but he still does)
- And the last one for today is his music taste.
It’s another fact why ppl
associate him with emo culture. There is no info loves Aku music or not, like Chuuya has. But ppl think it’s mix of rock\hard rock and etc. That’s headcanon anyway, but it’s more likely that Akutagawa enjoyes to listen classic music, something like new age or even ambient. Because he has really hard work. How u imagine Akutagawa coming home only for to listen MCR
(tooo much mcr in dis post lmao). Logically he has no time to listen music on missions and home is the only place where he can do it, but does he?
He looks fucking tired here, will he even have time to listen music? As i told in my imagination Aku likes classisc music, new age, ambient a good choice to relax, sometimes he will listen to darkwave too but it’s happens really rarely that he even forgot when he listened music for the last time.
Just a mix of headcanons, my opinion and etc. Don’t take it seriosly if ur opinion does not match with mine. I just wanted to share it. Maybe for someone Aku is still emo, for some goth, for some Aku is Aku and no one gives damn about subcultures in bsd. So for me by outfit Aku is 99.9% goth
(only for me i guess), the other has no attitude to this. Thanks for attention.
