Tagged by @faecakes. Thanks! (I loved your selection btw~).
I think I did this one a while ago but
I took the chance to make this my first drawings of the year :pp to start warming up again ww. These are in no particular order.
1. Horokeu Usui (HoroHoro) / Shaman King.
Horo was probably my first masive 2D crush. I obsessed over him like a psycho lol. I learned every single little thing about him (and I mean trivial stuff like… the exact numbre of frame, page and volume for his first appearance xd), the meaning of his name, the name of his techniques (which were in Ainu). Oh, and also, SEIYUUS! Horo started my obsession with making seiyuu connections x) (I was never really fan of Ueda Yuuji, tho). And I really admired Horo… I felt he was like my soulmate, my perfect husbando. So, based on priority right, he should be like my #1 bae :’)
I’m putting them together because they’re both special characters to me for the same reason: I knew Kimura Ryouhei because of them, and I loved him from the very beginning. Coincidentally, I started watching Angel Beats and Kamisama Dolls at the same time, and the contrast between these two characters, voiced by the same seiyuu, made me fall in love completely. They’re both so different. Hinata is a bright, loyal, energetic boy while Aki is this manipulative, rude, meticulous, violent guy (though he’s also super calm and indifferent about certain things). Hinata had me loving his voice changes whenever he was put into ridiculous and funny situations while Aki got me melting becasue of his manic laugh. I love Hinata & Aki both as characters, not just because of Kimura, but they’re the perfect examples of why KimuRyou is my fav seiyuu <3 <3
3. Kise Ryouta / Kuroko no Basket.
Oh boy….. my love for this man burns like a thousand suns bursting, ISTG. He’s too pure too good to pretty too shiny too precious for this world. Ok, I admit… Kimura Ryouhei is partly at fault here lol. Kise actually reminded me a lot of Hinata and I liked him from the start too, but soon I started loving every single little thing about him. He’s introduced a little as an arrogant dude but soon enough comes to change after his loss against Seirin (I loved it when he cried sddsffg). He’s like the cheerful, carefree member of the group, but he also shows so much determination, strength, and even selfishness. But I really think he’s the most admirable of the Generation of Miracles. And he’s so pretty I wanna cry everytime I see him, sob.
4. Judal / Magi.
Yes, the Kimura Ryouhei syndrome continues… but I swear it’s coincidence(?). Judal caught my eye since I saw him in the opening (that sequence when he’s falling, grabs a white rukh and turns it black it’s mesmerizing), but when he was finally introduced in the show, I WAS DOOMED FOREVER. Goddamn, I loved his personality. Even if he’s a little bit of a psycho, I loved his childish arrogant attitude. He’s like my twisted son
Except… not really a son, because… he makes me feel things 6//6 (???). Aahaahgsdjhk yes yes ok, I love his design, really, L O V E I T
His long braid, those beautiful ringed eyes, the makeup on them, the necklace and bracelets, that crop top, those abs, DAT WAISTLINE aksjdhjkashdkjhgasgasd

He needs his own manga, there’s just never enough Judal in my life.
5. Nozaki Umetarou / Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun.
I’ve said this before, but it me. Nozaki is me, I am Nozaki (except I’m not tall and handsome lol). Looks cold, mostly serious, suuupr dense in some subjects (specially about love and romance), zero experience in love… but somehow still makes love stories! His shoujo manga is terrible haha but he’s surprisingly popular as mangaka in spite of that x) I bet if I were to draw a manga it would be as ridiculous as his (or if my comics serve as an example… well, there ww). He has this stoic aspect, but he makes the most idiotic faces when he gets excited too~ I think Nozaki is more socially skilled than me but we’re both awkward anymway(?) xD. He’s my spirit animal
6. Netherlands & Finland / Hetalia.
Ah, my time in the Hetalia fandom… feels so distant :’) Italy was my fav at first but then I started roleplaying Fin (the first chara I ever roleplayed) and my love for him kept growing from there. He was just too adorbs <3 I got to know a lot of super nice people, both on the internet and irl, because of him. Also, back then I listened to lot of metal music, and I always pictured Fin as a secret metalhead xD And then Netherlands… I don’t remember exactly how I started liking him, I remember they released the chara design, stuff happened, and then there I was cosplaying the dude. Hahaha ah, even though I loved Fin, I couldn’t identify with him cause he’s super cute, happy and lovable; but Netherlands was more like me~ Stoic, cold, tsundere. Over time, Netherlands became my favorite over Fin, but they’re both special.
7. Furukawa Nagisa / CLANNAD.
My precious child. The purest girl ever created. A National treasure, istg. She’s not the type of female characters that I usually like, but somehow she got me from the start. She’s too adorable, sweet, innocent and good. She’s just too good!!!!!!! She’s always caring for others, always supportive of her friends, and tries her best even though she’s phisically weak and lacks confidence. She’s so strong and admirable, she makes my heart melt. CLANNAD made me cry rivers and hit me hard when… well, when After Story happened. She’s the type of character that I want to protect from all evil. I also LOVED Nakahara Mai’s performance as Nagisa, btw. I kept watching her scenes over and over just to listen to the cutest voice akjshd <3 I really love this child ;//;
8. Licht Jekylland Todoroki & Lawless / Servamp.
Well, as you would expect x) It’s probably obvious that I love them both so hard. And I want to clear up for the records that it’s not just because I love them together, or the homo hints flying all over the place between them. I love them both as separated characters. I really admire Licht. His resolution, his unbreakable spirit, his attitude, the hard worker he is, his strength, his pure innocence about the things he loves, his vision, his badassness, his frankness, his creativity… He’s a gem, the type of person I could never be :’) ALSO, HE’S HOT AF. Lawless is so beautiful. He deserves the universe. I feel him more in a spirital way. How he lost faith in everything, how meaningless lives seemed to him, the vicious cycle he was in. But the fact he’s able to change that (with Licht’s help) is truly touching and praiseworthy. He made a deep impression in me. Ah, and of course, his flamboyant personality! He’s such a dork ahah xD I love his nerdy side, his energy, even his bragging. And the fact that he can literally go from hotdamn vampire to cute hedgy in no time is amazing xD
Also, his voice…. yeah, you know this by this point, but the fact he’s voiced by Kimura Ryouhei makes him even more perfect than he already was (everytime I listen to the Drama CDs, I literally have to go back and listen to his lines again because kjahsdjkg perfection in my ears). So yeah, I love my boys
9. Morgiana / Magi.
The ultimate example of the type of female character that I like. She’s strong, kind, determined, tough, has a strong sense of justce, needs no one to do shit for her, BUT she’s not arrogant, aggresive or extravagant herself. She’s quite, starightforward and helpful. But she’s also soooo adorable and cute!! The way she puffs up her cheeks when she’s mad, her smile, the little tears on her eyes when he was encouraged by Hakuryuu, her happy face, the way she dances around wearing that exotic outfit… man she is gorgeous, she’s amazing, she’s a goddess. And dem kicks, THE KIIICCCKKKS, god she’s a BADASS. She seriously became like a prototype of my perfect gurl. No kidding, after her, everytime there’s a badass fem chara that I like, I call her “a Morgiana”. And I know she’s probs being “controlled” by Sinbad in the manga right now, but I cried when she said she has come to love herself because of all the time she’s been with Alibaba. I’M SO PROUD OF HER <//333
10. Special mention to: EVERY KIMURA RYOUHEI CHARACTER.
Agh, I just…. it’s amazing how without a miss, characters voiced by Kimura always become my favourite. I always love them, for one reason or another. I mean, I have other seiyuus I love too (Kaji Yuki, Nakamura Yuuichi, Ishikawa Kaito, Sugita Tomokazu, Kamiyan….), but I don’t always like their characters. But with Kimura, I ALWAYS do. I don’t know all of his roles, obviously, but here’s some that I absolutely love:
