Am I jealous of hot anime guys? Yes.
Call me what you like, but my stance on this issue shall never change.
Why Do I Think This?
Where did my somewhat deep-rooted hatred stem from? I don’t know. Maybe, it’s because I have been unable to get myself a girlfriend—let alone getting in the ‘talking stage’ as youngins call it nowadays.
I was talking to a friend (ooh wow, look at me showing I have friends). Like a right pillock, I asked her something along the lines of, “What’s your type?”
“Someone like Satoru Gojo,” she replied without hesitation.
Let’s just say I ended the conversation with a very lengthy sigh as I wished for a subject change to save me from my harrowing self-pity.
You get the point. I hate hot anime guys.
They create unrealistic expectations in men
Well, I’m sorry I don’t have pretty eyes like Satoru Gojo, or that I don’t have really sick piercings and long flowing hair like Izumi Miyamura. You know what? I’m not even sorry.
These anime guys really tend to screw into the minds of people that people that are hot truly exist. Do me a favour, if you can find some guy that looks like Nanase Haruka from Free, you can have twenty quid.
I’m sure this makes plenty of guys sad. Sad that they can’t live up to these expectations. I know for a fact it makes me sad especially when my attempts at looking like them utterly backfire and I end up looking like Hanako, from Asobi Asobase, when her friends tried putting makeup on her, with that exact same expression splayed across my sorry face.
Sure, you can say that anime girls do the same thing for females: create unrealistic ideals and expectations. You know what? I hate anime girls now.
They tend to have cold personalities
Obviously, the attraction to guys with cold personalities doesn’t make sense to me.
Do you want a guy like Levi Ackerman? Sure you do. That is if you only want to look at him.
“Oh, but surely he will love me.” Yeah right, chances are he’s going to treat you like dirt. Worse than dirt. Probably like dirt that has been constantly trampled on for 365 days with no break, has been spat on multiple times, and has been under massive piles of animal excrement.
Sure, you’d like that now, right?
My problem with “cool”
I am fully aware that I am deviating topics. Welcome to my train of thought.
Hot anime guys tend to have cool personalities. Cool with a very long “oo” sound. Like, COOOOOOOOOOL. But, I am a hundred percent certain that being “COOOOOOOOOOL” requires the looks. Take, for example, Guren Ichinose; he’s a pretty cool guy.
A hot guy can seemingly make things seem cool like saying a cheesy line like “it’s grate” and we’ve got people swooning left, right, and center, falling over like dominoes. On the other hand, if some poor other bloke came along who’s half as good-looking saying the same thing, everyone is going to get angry. In fact, I would get angry as well.
We should just stop using cool to describe someone’s personality. It’s not fair for us average guys.
Enough of the negatives
Glass half full, glass half empty. I say glass half empty.
See, I’m a pessimist. However, being positive and optimistic can increase your lifespan. Since that’s the case, I’m all in.
Impending doom aside, I sort of lied to you all. I don’t hate hot anime guys. And I most certainly don’t hate anime girls. The things I stated above are also the exact reasons why I love them. Because of this, I find myself drooling as they enter a scene.
Perhaps, I need to have a good state of mind. In essence, a clear mind.
Yes, I was upset that this friend of mine expected some guy to look like Gojo, but that shouldn’t mean I unleash my anger on non-existent, fictitious beings. I was too sensitive. As a result, I let my emotions dictate my fingers on the keyboard.
That being said: Hot anime guys steal both our waifus and real-life girls. UUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
