Inquiring Minds Want to Know #22

Inquiring Minds Want To Know

The question today really stressed me out. It was like trying to choose who your favourite child was (assuming I actually had children). On that note though, now I want to know everyone else’s answer to this question.

Remember, I’d love to answer a question from you so fill in the survey below or DM on twitter.

Who is an anime character that you feel needs a hug the most?


There are just so many anime characters badly in need of a hug that this question was pure torture as I tried to narrow down my list. I mean even a character like Tsukamoto from Days is a character I felt was in dire need of a hug, I’m just not sure who I would like to see give him that hug.


However, getting a little more serious, I’d love to give Yuri from Yuri on ice a hug. Actually, both Yuri’s in Yuri on Ice are in need of a hug at one point in the anime or another. And then Victor. When Yuri made Victor cry I wanted to give him a hug so badly and I’m not really the kind of person who is big on hugging others. But right then, if I could have, I would have given Victor the biggest hug until he was done crying.

Then of course we have Shinji from Evangelion who may have had a very different experience if he’d had anyone give him a hug or actual human warmth. Or someone like Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul who really needed someone there for him as he transformed into what he believed to be a monster.

However, despite all these excellent candidates for anime characters that I kind of feel need a hug, my number one pick would have to be Rei Kiriyama from March Comes in Like a Lion.


Fortunately, the lack of people in Rei’s life who were there to give him a hug when needed didn’t stop him from recognising when Hina needed someone. Rei was there for her in the best way possible and that just made me want to give him a hug even more. Can we please get a third season now because I need to know that Rei is going to alright?
