Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters with Green Hair

Following on from last week's selection of female characters with green hair, I now bring you the list of male characters. These are my personal favourite characters who have the distinction of having green hair, though in many cases I'm still not sure why given green is not even close to a natural hair colour. … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters with Green Hair

Tuesday’s Top 5: Character Poses

Pretty much every anime fan will admit that at some stage they definitely struck the pose of their favourite character (usually a fighter) in real life. There's something very cool about character poses on screen and something utterly ridiculous about using them in real life and yet some cosplayers really pull it off.

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Brothers

We all know there are some terrible anime families out there, but every now and then a show finds a way to remind us that not every blood relative wants to abandon you, use you to destroy the world, or is on a vendetta to kill and destroy you. I'm dedicating this list to all … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Brothers

This is my list of the 5 common … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Annoying Anime Tropes

Tuesday’s Top 5: Character Quirks

Okay, if you are looking for quirky characters, anime has you covered. However, there are some characters who just have one specific trait that in some ways ends up defining them. This is my list of favourite quirks that complement the other features of the character, fit into the narrative being told, and still manage … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Character Quirks

Tuesday’s Top 5: Totally Narcissistic Characters

Having covered red heads both male and female, I am now turning my attention to the narcissists of the anime world. I'm going to clarify, this is not just a list of narcissists though. It's pretty easy to make a character narcissistic. What is difficult is to make the audience actually like the self-loving individual. … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Totally Narcissistic Characters
