I've got my monthly rant about the insular fanbase out of the way. Hit me if I bring it up again.>>3276354>succulents

He's shown as a child for his backstory arc, but most of it is someone impersonating his appearance. There's some fanart though I'm glad I've only seen one or two that were sexualised.
He'd find my taste in fiction unpleasant, and I don't think his sense of humour likes picking on things too much. He'd be worried for the characters and complain some stories are too mean or the situations too scary. Don't know how he feels about idling games but he'd really hate Monster Farm and Zoo Tycoon because the creatures die. Actually anything where people get hurt and cry out would make him fussy. He's not much for drawing or writing either.
There's two scenarios where people draw fanart of him stressed or sad: teehee abusive ships and self-harm/suicide pics. You can't get anything classy or safe. Ok I lie, there's a few puppydog eye pics here and there but I don't know, I feel it gets played up too much sometimes. There's very little appeal left in teasing him because it's this one note caricature. I'd want to imagine something more unique surrounding that reaction.>>3276253
I used to spend long car journeys imagining he was riding Byakko, bounding down the road beside us. No matter what happened he'd be looking out for me.>>3283553
It's one of those things I want to communicate to people and just can't put right. Sometimes I do worry how much of it is a feeling rather than something I can prove, and the scenes I could prove it with are usually the bad ones. I shit on the anime all the time but the casting and acting are spot on when it matters, and hearing ShinMiki's range might be the easiest way to explain it because he does that tired voice so perfectly. Funnily enough his other seiyuu swapped roles with ShinMiki as a teenager pretending to be an old immortal.
I need to stop posting at 8am.
