Anonymous inquired: What do you think of Kageyama Tobio and his character development? He's actually really popular (in fact, he's first in the official character poll, with Hinata following him closely from behind) and it's proven by the fact that he's your favorite character, so... what aspect of him is the most appealing and why?

The format of this question brings me back to my college days, and as such, I feel heavily pressured right now. So this is the power of a meta-inciting question. XD

Yes, you’re right. Kageyama Tobio is my favorite character, Surprisingly, such affection is not a love-at-first-sight case (usually, it does with most of the characters that I’d loved). (Tsukishima was my first love to be honest). I think it is already apparent for the whole fandom that the character who had the most amazing character development is this dork who ruled this court by the name of our “hearts” (you can count our bodies in, but that’s a kink so I’ll rule that out for now).

Kageyama’s character development is exceptional. To prove this case in point, I shall use other protagonists from two other sports series that I’ve watched.

Beautiful post. *gives a round of applause to Taka-chan*

In addition to what you’ve said, what I find amusing is the fact that even though Kageyama was supposed to be a “stoic genius”, he’s actually very far from that. Yes, he is a genius—but only when it comes to volleyball. Academically-wise though, he’s not that far from Hinata. He’s actually a very awkward guy, and even though he’s supposed to be cocky, he’s still very polite. Anyway, what I love the most about Kageyama is the fact that he’s really honest and he immediately admits his mistakes. In fact, his brutal honesty caused him to have a strained relationship with his teammates in Kitagawa Daiichi, since he’s been very demanding even though deep inside, he only wants them to improve themselves so they can win. I love the fact that he’s been trying his hardest to change himself for the better. I wanna say a lot more, but that would be spoilery for anime-only fans. Still, believe me, Kageyama’s gonna grow as a person even more, and his relationship with the team as well as with Hinata is going to improve.

*comes back with a headache* Hontou ni, anata wa…XD. I agree. Kageyama was one misunderstood player, and Hinata was the catalyst to that change. The shrimp was the first one to give his trust to the King after all. Thank you for raising up these points, Kura-chan! (Na-stress ako sa tanong mo.XD) (Edit: Actually, my first impression of him is that he’s gonna be of the Kagami Taiga type.) He is deviates from arrogant main charas who deliver lines such as “I’m gonna beat you real good” or “We’re gonna crush”, something along those lines.

Haha! No need to be stressed, since I know that you’re capable of pulling it off! Anyway, that’s true. I thought—no, all of us thought—that Kageyama will always be that arrogant main character whose only purpose is to ridicule the protagonist, spouting lines like, “The only one who can beat me is me.” (Aomine lmao) I am so glad that he’s different from that, and we can even see that from the first episode alone, there’s something that makes him different from them. Geniuses like him don’t take small fries seriously. They only believe in their own strengths and potential. However, Kagayama’s different. He’s the only one who took Yukigaoka seriously, and he’s the only one who had seen Hinata’s potential.

Anyway, I just can’t help but smile whenever I rewatch the earlier episodes. Just compare Hinata and Kageyama’s relationship from Episode 1 to Episode 17… it’s just.. too different. I’d probably die when the Tokyo Excursion arc is animated omg ;_;

Anonymous inquired: My my, you are smart in addition to being sweet, Kura-chan <3 *squishes like a giant panda*

Awww, but you’re the sweet one here, Spinel-chan! <3 *glomps and clings to you like a koala*

image

Me? Well I don’t really know, I just make sure that it’s good first? I don’t spoil myself completely though, since even if i read spoilers, without knowing anything about the series at all then reading the spoilers will bore me as well XD Hmmmm actually I don’t remember where I am in the game, I was a few minutes into the game when I stopped, since I’m too lazy to play lmao

image

Ooooh, if it’s short then I might just play it again! And actually I use walkthroughs when I play a game, it’s easier for me that way.. *shot* Yeah, I’ve watched the first episode! In fact, I watched it the same day as I watched Free. Never managed to finish it, although I do have all the anime and the game downloaded on my hard drive XD Ah, but actually it’s rare for otome games to get translated, even fan translations are hard to find tbh, but if you really wanna play it you can still play it even if it’s in Japanese, I mean, that’s what I did to other games before XD

image

True! Kageyama’s reactions are all pretty amusing after all! And I’d probably try my best to see him smile ahahaha, coz you know, his smile is really gold! And have you seen the latest episode of Haikyuu? Kageyama smiled a lot in there, it’s like heaven for me and the way he told Hinata about the quick, which is basically

THIS

SCENE

daaaamn they’re like smiling at each other I’m so proud bless their relationship QWQ

image

Aah yes I do agree, the way they handled the romance is horrible.. there should have been more build up before they did all those romance problems.. And yeah, their powers are more interesting actually. About Sacchan though? Hmmmm I don’t know, maybe she’ll get into an accident or something? Not a big one though, that’s for sure. I still haven’t watched the third episode onwards, so I’m not really sure XD And oooh I see, I think they have already released the polished version though? I mean, I did see it on my dash XD

image

Hahaha! Well this is a BL game after all, so I’m not really surprised to see the gay act. But oh, Love Stage has gotten even deeper into the gay act by its third episode you know, I’m shocked tbh hahaha XD And hmmm yeah, I like studying the things I like, that’s what xD But tbh I’m not that bad at studying, I’m just really lazy even though I’m actually pretty okay with it and I like writing thesis and stuff even though it’s hard ehehehe~

image

Awwwww, thank you so much anon-chan, I’m so glad that you like it! We’re all beginners in the group after all, so I’m glad to hear that you guys like our work :D And yes, that’s my favorite as well, it’s just so cute I just can’t help it, I really love Bubunhanten’s doujins, especially her Kagehina ones like “I Got Drunk” and “First Love Combat” . And oooh, that’s actually pretty interesting, as expected no less from Urobutcher, he sure knows his thing!

image

Ah, the head tilt thing? I’m not really surprised, it was animated by Shaft after all, that’s their signature and they add that to every work that they have done. And don’t worry I’m familiar with the character designs so it’s okay for me, but oh is it true that it has a hint of yuri or something in there? Yeah, you should try Love Stage, it’s good but of course it’s pretty gay, it’s a real deal BL anime after all, and kinda R-18 too, but it’s to be expected anyway XD

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT??? I’m so glad that you told me about this, anon-chan. I HATE THE ENDING. It’s like the same feeling I’ve felt when I’ve read Parfait Tic, where the author placed a lot of ship tease only for the heroine to end up with another in the end, or like Alive which did the same, but at least in Alive the story is good for me to read it till the end.  :D And damn damn damn why did Hino Matsuri go with this kind of ending? This makes me hate Yuki even more ugh and I’m glad that Zero pursued Yuki, but still, her character became even more useless and indecisive, daaamn good thing I’m too lazy to read the manga ahahaha XD

image

And yes I really like Zero and Yuki together, I don’t know, I understand Kaname’s appeal but he’s just isn’t my type at all.. =_= I hate it when Yuki always clings to Kaname, she should have given Zero more attention *sobs*

image

image

Hahaha I guess taking care of fishes really has its ups and downs, but tbh I really wouldn’t want to have a pet fish since it will either be neglected and die, and I’m too lazy to take care of it properly XD

image

Yeah I love horror movies, it’s actually one of my favorite genres aside from comedy, and oh tbh I don’t really watch a lot of movies since anime has taken all of my attention OTL Hahaha have you seen the third episode though? All that thing about heroes makes me think of Samurai Flamenco tbh, it’s hilarious… and have you seen Samurai Flamenco, anon-chan?

image

Ah well they stopped watching the other shows that I watch so for other shows, I watch it alone or sometimes I watch anime at school while I’m waiting for classes *shot* Ooooh yes, I remember that, man Kougami’s sexiness huh man I really love Kougami I wish he’ll be reunited with Akane in the second season, and I’m curious about the upcoming movie next year as well..

image

Yeah, same here, though I doubt that Nozaki would have actual romance in it, I pretty much think that it will stay as a parody of shoujo manga lmao and oh have you seen the latest ep? Nozaki and Mikorin are playing dating sim games, so hilarous! And yeah of course I did watch the new eps! :D As for Barakamon, I really hope we’ll get more scenes with Tama in fujoshi mode, it’s comedy gold~ Btw, have you seen Inari Konkon Koi Iroha? It was shown last winter though, the same season as Noragami. And yeah, Kageyama’s seiyuu (Ishikawa Kaito) voices Nine! Tbh when I’m watching Zankyou no Terror, whenever Nine talks, I just couldn’t help but hear Kageyama aaaaah my addiction has taken over me I knew it, anyway I really love Ishikawa Kaito’s voice! Ever since I heard him from Suisei no Gargantia, I just knew that he’ll be successful and look at him today, aaaah Kageyama <3 And oh, the fact that he’s the same age as me makes me really happy, I mean he’s sooo young, he’s voicing protagonists at the age of 20, actually 19 when we count his role as Ledo in Gargantia.. :D

image

Hmmm now that you mention it, they are. But tbh when I first saw Nine, the one who crossed my mind was Midorima from KnB XD Yeah we definitely should start the manga soon,  a friend of mine said that Pierrot destroyed the plotline so much that watching the anime felt like a fanfic or something.. and that isn’t good at all. *sighs*

image

Haha yeah Touka is in high school, I actually thought that she’s in college since most of the characters are in university, but oh well XD And oooh, that’s nice to hear then, I guess that only thing that deviated from the manga then is the fact that Mamoru always wears tuxedos everywhere lmao AND YES TEAM CHITOGE, I wish Chitoge’s the promised girl, and actually in the manga Raku’s harem gets even bigger XD And now that you mention it, yeah it is, since it both has the promised girl thing.. but at least Nisekoi doesn’t have that much fanservice, unlike Love Hina. I like Raku better than Keitaro, that’s for sure.  And yeah I did watch it before, I even watched it on our local TV XD

image

And awwww why are you embarrassed? Although I kinda get it, it’s ecchi after all.. Hmmm tbh I like Love Hina, ahahaha I even played the game on Gameboy before lmao XD Hmmm well I kinda like Onodera, actually if Chitoge wasn’t around then I would’ve rooted for Onodera too, she’s too awkward that it’s cute :D And yeah you’ve gotta rewatch it since the second season is fast approaching, I have a feeling that it will be shown next year though! And oh, by the way, have you watched classic/ old school anime?

SORRY IF THIS IS LATE, I’VE BEEN SO BUSY LAST WEEK *SOB*
