Who is your favourite male anime character?
In the relatively short time that I’ve known this character, he has quickly found his way to becoming one of my favourite anime characters. He has a sword… well, actually he has three of them. My favourite male anime character is Zoro.
Why is that?
At first, I was more than a little dubious of someone claiming to be able to fight with a sword in his mouth, but I only had to see him fight once to know that this guy was awesome. Similar to Saeko, he’s calm and calculating. Then, when it’s time to fight you had better stay out of his way.
Unlike, a number of the other strong characters in One Piece, Zoro doesn’t have any devil-fruit powers. This makes his achievements all the more spectacular because he’s done it through training and sheer determination. He doesn’t always join in with all the frivolities and is often found enjoying a nap.
He has a very pragmatic view on life and isn’t bogged down by possessions, with the exception of his swords and bandana. There’s isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for his friends, willing to put everything on the line more than once.
What is it with you and swords?
It’s hard to say really. I grew up in England with tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Then there was He-man and the Masters of the Universe. Even in Star Wars, they had swords. They have just struck me as a more honourable way to fight.
Anything else you’d like to say?
So, One Piece is an insanely long series. Each episode tends to include a little catch up on the previous episode which can be a little annoying. Even with that, I would say it’s well worth your time to watch it. I’m working my way through it daily and tweeting about each episode. Have a read, it may pique your interest.
