Anime personality similarity

Postby Lockon Stratos » Thu Oct 20, 2011 3:16 pm

Anyone watch an anime and find that you and one of the characters are almost exactly alike? I've had this experience with Vash from Trigun and Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist. Like Vash, on the outside I'm a total goofball, but my inner thoughts are extremely somber. With Ed, I mostly find that he takes the same action I would in most situations (Noticed this because when I watch any type of show I think about what I would do in their situation) and we both have easily bruised egos.
I don't know what I know.

I can't say I'm EXactly like any character I've seen, but since every character does have a personality, i.e. is human, I must admit I've been like various characters at times in both poor choices I've made and respectable ones.

I know I'm wise because I know that I know nothing.

I identify quite a bit with Lain from Serial Experiments Lain. Maybe it's because I've noticed how autistic she seems.

I like to think that I am a mix of Kuronuma Sawako (Kimi ni Todoke) and Hibari Kyouya (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!). There are many characters with traits that I can identify with, but I don’t think I’ve come across two characters who are more like me than these two are. Both are misunderstood by people, as is the case with me at times.

Like Hibari, I am not particularly fond of crowds, I have always been a loner, and I do like being alone sometimes. I also identify with flight, birds, the sky, etc, all of which are considered “Hibari indicators,” due to his role as the Vongola Family’s Cloud Guardian and the cute, little bird, Hibird, that accompanies him almost everywhere – not to mention “Hibari” being roughly translated as “skylark,” I believe. (A couple of years ago, I did a character study on Hibari, but I won’t bore anyone with that. I’m not even sure where half my notes are now...)

At the same time, I am like Sawako; one who simply tries to be there for people, even if hurts me in the end. Our pasts are similar; our gratefulness towards people who stick around to become friends is one and the same. (Oh, and I cry easily, too. :D)

Other characters I find myself similar to – but not nearly as much as the two above – are Itou Kamotarou (Gintama; I’m not violent or that harsh like him, though!), Hyuuga Hinata (Naruto), Hitachiin Kaoru (Ouran High School Host Club),and Fuyuumi Shouko (La Corda d’Oro). There are definitely others I can relate to in the decisions they may make or actions they may take, as ABlipinTime said, but these characters are the ones that stood out immediately to me.

Hmmm...I seem to be like Vash(Trigun), Edward Elric(Fullmetal Alchemist), Naruto(Naruto), Kakashi(Naruto), Jiraiya(Naruto), and then like Tenchi Masaki(Tenchi Muyo). They all seem to have a bit of me in them and vice versa. I love all of those shows. Though there are alot of other characters I see just a little of me in but these are the core of them all.

One of my friends says that if there's a smart character in the anime, they remind her of me. The latest is Nami (thankfully not because she also hoards gold and is somewhat useless in a fight).

She just told me she thinks I'm like Haruhi from Ouran Host Club. But not quite as oblivious.

When I was younger I was the real life equivalent of Ranma 1/2's Ryoga Hibiki. Now, I'm much closer to this guy

I think like I'm the female version of Jacuzzi Splot with a pinch of Ed from Bebop and a splash of Tohru or Kobato, who (apparently) looks like Yomi (maybe I have a bit of her personality in the mix too....) from Azumanga Daioh.
There`s usually at least one character in an anime that I can relate to, at least to some extent.

I'm told that I'm very much like Tamaki Souh from Ouron Highschool Host Club by more than a few people. My brother said I was like him before I had even watched the anime. Personally though I feel like I'm just like Kotetsu T. Kaburagi from Tiger and Bunny in that its a driving passion within to put others before myself... no matter the cost. And also the main character from [C] - Control in that he was always struggling within himself to make the right decision.

There are plenty of characters I share traits with, but I don't know of any one character who's exactly like me. I'm an interesting mix of Riza Hawkeye, Akashi (from Tatami Galaxy), Haruhi Fujioka, and a dash of Tsukimi Kurashita.

Kagura from Azumanga Daioh I'm proud to say.

And Yuki from Vampire Knight because I have a tendency for getting butthurt.

When I was watching Kyo Kara Maoh, I found that me and Yuri would essentially be the same person in terms of personality. I think he would be a good model for me when I'm in a focused mood.
