And then it was Valentine’s Day and we get to the final day of 10 Anime Boys. Let’s get right to it.
The Anime Boy You Secretly Want To Appear In Your Dreams
This is probably another guy who in real life would be more trouble than he was worth with his hard-headed approach to life and reckless nature in the pursuit of revenge. Yet Kougami Shinya from Psycho Pass is an awesome character to admire from a distance and so is the perfect guy to call into your dreams.
Reason One: See above.
Again, a super shallow reason but an honest one.
Actually, if I’m really honest I’m not super into that particular body type, however Kougami kind of makes the whole package work. And again, from a distance, it’s pretty great to look at.
Reason Two: Pretty sure you can’t suffer from second hand smoke in a dream (or at least I hope my subconscious is smart enough not to).
The distance of having Kougami in a dream rather than in reality allows me to wrinkle out some of his less desirable character traits (such as his habit of lighting up a cigarette in front of characters who clearly don’t like the smoke). While Kougami looks incredibly cool in most shots of Psycho Pass, I’d have to admit I’d probably find the smell on his clothes and on his breath hard to take in reality. The distance that being an anime character or in a dream creates is probably incredibly important here.
Reason Three: He’s tough, smart, and driven.
Alright, there’s a lot to admire about Kougami outside of his looks. If his friend hadn’t been cut to pieces by a serial killer, quite possibly Kougami would have lived a very peaceful and upstanding life. Then again, his penchant for digging deeper into things and questioning probably would have got him in trouble with the system sooner or later and possibly the same outcome would have occurred.
Regardless, Kougami’s character is fairly admirable in the way he can piece things together and that he has confidence to act on his own thoughts. It makes him a pretty admirable character even if he is a little on the reckless side.
Kougami Shinya is my choice but I’d love to know yours. Then again, I don’t think many people would complain about Kougami showing up in their dreams (unless he was pursuing you in which case that could probably be a nightmare).
