hey hey hey mfc, how we doin' tonight !!

as we all might know, generally all collectors and lovers of anime have several (or just one!) favorite characters or comfort characters. typically speaking, many of these characters are both our favorite and our comfort character all in one and they are usually that one character that either you are emotionally attached to or you are willing to buy all of their merch/figures because it means a lot to you. for many, that character probably also has a hidden shrine somewhere in your house or you use that character to feel safe and happy during troubled times! ˚‧*♡ॢ˃̶̤̀◡˂̶̤́♡ॢ*‧˚

my question of the day is: what made you fall in love with your favorite or comfort character?

there are so many reasons that you can become attached to a character and then the next thing you know, you're knee deep in their products and obsessed over them and you can't seem to stop feeling giddy when you buy something related to them or think about them. sometimes it's love at first sight from the character design/personality or a gradual understanding of their character and overall existence in the anime that makes them the best character in your opinion (or sometimes it's just because they are interesting to you!!).

the main reason for this particular article is that for me (and i'm sure of many of y'all out there as well!), hearing people talk about their favorite/comfort characters is one of the best things that comes with being as a collector and anime lover because there is so much happiness and joy that surrounds the person talking and you just can't look away cause you're absolutely mesmerized by them and their passion for the character and the hobby itself. from experience, it's such a special feeling to bond over your favorite characters, especially with someone else!!, there's nothing truly like it.

to start off, i'll go first! my comfort character is oikawa from haikyuu (wow what a shocker XD) ! he holds a really really special place in my heart, partly because he reminds me so much of myself and because of his entire storyline that later displays his growth and him maturing into someone better and someone that he's always wanted to be. i truly believe that he was one of the main pivotal characters and one that deserved so much. his development into everything he never thought he could become/desperately desired to be when he was younger is so fascinating and impactful to me personally and it's one that i carry close to my heart. i could go on FOR HOURS about him but i'll keep it short and sweet before i get too carried away ´͈ ᵕ `͈ ♡°◌̊

as always, i hope y'all are all staying safe and i wish you all a lovely day/night & happy collecting !! i hope y'all find everything y'all are searching for and yes, this is your sign to buy that figure you've been eyeing, go make yourself happy !!

Some people really don't get me when i say that Sanrio Danshi is one of my favorite animes, and I mean, I get it. It's not trascendental, the best anime ever, and I know perfectly why is so ignored by... everyone.

But to be honest I have a hugeee love for the characters, and I can say is my favorite not because "how good" it is but how it makes feel.

I remember the first time I saw it, and even before i could watch the series, i had a "clic" with Nishimiya Ryo. I have a funny story (that i don't want to extend this time to not making this too long) about how I fell in love with Kiki & Lala, so I saw him and I thought "YOU! you like them too!"

I wanted to see the anime just because of him, and I was to exited to finally see´m.

You see, sanrio ignores Little Twins Stars so often (not as much as other characters) but they're out of lots of collections, so I never thought they'll be included and have... you know, they one and only sanrio boy just for them.

I was too excited, I had a hard time trying to be patient to see his appearance in the anime and well, once he had his first episode I loved him-

It's hard to explain but it's just my type of character, really cute, little messy personality but good hearted. And back then, when I just saw the anime, I identified with him in ways I cannot explain perfectly right now but that makes sense to me.

He makes me really happy.

My Hero Academia's Deku, Uraraka and Shinso are some of my favourite comfort characters. Even if they struggle they maintain a sense of optimism and the strength to go beyond and continue working towards their dreams. Honestly the entire manga is a comfort. The way friendships are portrayed amongst the class of 1.A. is really wholesome and always a joy to read. In a simular vein the Bottom Tier Character Tomozaki light novels are a comfort read in and of itself due to the wholesome friendships that takes place in it, particularly between Tomozaki and Kikuchi. Tomozaki is a top tier comfort character due to his honesty and steadfast drive to better himself that just has a really wholesome and inspirational air to it.

Nemsy2 months ago#98468232My comfort character is Arjuna from Fate/Grand order! He's just baby.
I absolutely adore Arjuna. When I first got into Fate, I watched Apocrypha, and really liked Karna. When I did more research on him and found Arjuna, I was dumbstruck. His story and personality, both in FGO and in Hindu mythology, amazed me. He's a prince, a demigod, and a hero who's whole thing was his rivalry with Karna.
In FGO, Arjuna was basically an "accessory" for Karna before LB4 and the events following it. His whole personality was revolved around hating Karna. But as they developed him, they gave him a real personality, where he's easily excitable and loves to do things with people. He really loves monkeys, spicy food and being the best. He also doesn't mind being sneaky to win. However, he hides these things the majority of the time because he sees them as unbecoming and not princely. He's convinced himself that nobody could accept him for who he is because of what he's done in the past and the hero he's known as.
I love Arjuna because, despite being divine, he struggles with very human issues. He's unable to process things sometimes, he's scared of not being accepted, etc. A lot of the other servants in FGO that have divinity aren't like that, which sets him apart, I think.
I also love Karna, but only in FGO, because his Hindu Mythos counterpart is a literal ass.

Really really hoping he gets a good scale in his original outfit. The white clothing is really pretty

I think as one can see from my collection, my comfort characters are Yuri Katski and Victor Nikiforov from Yuri!!! On Ice! I've watched the anime I think 5 times now? I've cried more than once. I just love the relationship and want them to have the best! I relate to Yuri because of his insecurities and his self esteem issues.. And I love Victor's charisma! They go so well together just watching them together makes me feel safe!

Chrollo Lucilfer...where do I start. I was an edgy teen, just getting into the darker parts of Hunter x Hunter. The art style was soooo romantic to me. I love the York New arc with all my heart. I was listening to Lana Del Rey's "Sad Girl", her singing about, "You haven't seen my man, I'm his Bonnie on the side." really started selling me on being his boy on the side. Even listening to it now recalls my memory of first seeing Chrollo.

It was just soooo romantic to me. And his character was so charismatic and charming, and he was so enticing. I literally fell in love with him. He's so intelligent, and thoughtful, and compassionate and so...attractive to me. I love his position in leadership. I don't think anyone even comes close to him for me anymore.

I love that I don't know if he'd treat me really well, use me, or misuse me. I like to think it's a combination of a lot of things. I just feel like he'd care at the end of the day. I like that he's motivated by material desires, he gets what he wants, and he's good at doing it. He's worked hard to get where he is, and his dedication is reflected in the company he keeps. The Phantom Troupe works hard for him, because he deserves it; their loyalty is unwavering. He's been my number one for...years now. I doubt that will change.

He doesn't have many figures, unfortunately. I did grab his Nendoroid, though. My first Nendoroid to start off my collection after nearly a decade of not collecting.

enorr2 months ago#98462145My comfort character is Asuna Yuuki! SAO was the first anime i watched, admittedly its not the best anime and i believe a lot of peoples criticisms of it are valid, but my taste in anime is usually questionable at best lol. anyways, i love her design, and her relationship with kirito feels really fulfilling when i compare it to a lot of drawn out 'will they wont they date' couples in other anime i enjoy. I also really like her spunk and attitude, plus her hard work and skill brought her to be subleader of KoB, but one of the best things about her is i can enjoy her character in the original series, as well as the beautiful SAO abridged by something witty entertainment- i honestly think they did it better than the original by a lot.
sorry about all that rambling lol. my other comfort character is Tanjiro from Demon Slayer- his heart of gold and never-ending persistence makes me really admire him. plus his demeanor makes me feel like if i was sad he's give me a hug. honestly i probably love him more than Asuna.


never apologize for rambling about the things you love !!!!! it was so nice hearing about your love for these two characters! indeed, i too believe that they would BOTH give you hugs to comfort you!! they are both such well rounded and great characters that deserve so much (as do you!), i'm glad that they make you happy!!

PeriTheAlpaca2 months ago#98461836of course, my favorite character or "comfort" character would be no other than shoto todoroki! funny enough, i used to always trash on mha and even shoto at one point due to the fandom. one day i ran across some screencaps of shoto and it somehow convinced me singlehandedly to start mha. i found shoto's original arrogant attitude to be fairly off putting. however, after seeing his development in the sports festival and throughout the series made me really appreciate him. especially his development in the recent paranormal war arc took my love for him to new lengths. i can relate to him quite a bit and i love watching his character continue to develop.
now i can't stop collecting shoto merch, and all my money goes towards him. here's my current figure shrine and my almost completed itabag: (i have more merch not pictured)
