Rating the Shoujo boys

The title explains it all. Let’s begin the roast… kind of.

Takeo from Ore Monogatari!!

I want to say that I love this kid, but I fully can’t. What I love about him is that he’s very much himself. He doesn’t try to adhere to anyone’s opinion or shy away from others. But he’s a very simple guy, something that I love and hate about his character.

Takeo has a heart of gold. I would trust his guy with almost anything, really. But I wish he had more selfishness in him as it would make his character interesting. At the same time, the anime is supposed to be wholesome, so I understand why they wouldn’t want to complicate things.

Is it mean to say that I would see Takeo as a pet?

Kazehaya from Kimi ni Todoke

Kazehaya is such a wholesome character. The anime itself just screams wholesome. While his advances towards Sawako are a bit slow, I can overlook it since it feels natural for the most part. The anime also focuses on themes other than romance, which needs time to build up.

Kazehaya is a natural character. What I mean by that is that he doesn’t encompass all that is good. He gets jealous easily, misunderstands situations, and has a short temper. But he isn’t dramatic about it, nor does any drama revolve around him.

I like this guy.

Usui from Kaichou wa Maid Sama!

If you asked the younger me about Usui, I would have said that I love this guy. Now… I don’t know. Usui is a cool character. He’s super charismatic, and he’s perfect at literally everything. But he comes with some… baggage, I believe, in the manga.

He’s super protective and flirtatious towards Misaki, a trait that’s supposed to be sexy, I guess. At least he’s straightforward. He reminds me of a male protagonist from those free, romance kindle ebooks, which is OK… as long as the plot is good.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Kou from Ao Haru Ride

I barely remember anything from this anime. I think Kou went through life which changed his personality. He became quiet and reserved. And it was Futaba who gets him to open up again.

I think Kou is okay. I don’t remember anything that made him stand out from other male protagonists in shoujo. So…

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club

Tamaki is funny. But his personality is exaggerated, and I think he would be really annoying in real life. But I like the depth that the author gave him later on. Past the laughs and smiles, Tamaki also has a family issue, I believe.

Even though Tamaki is meant to be the comic relief, I like how genuine he is.

Gin from Hotarubi no Mori e

Five stars. Gin was so kind to Hotaru as she grew up. When he disappeared, a small part of me died.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Kazuya from Ghost Hunt

Kazuya is the definition of tall, quiet, and handsome. He’s mature for his age. While I like his cold and no-nonsense attitude, he’s a little too uptight. But he’s definitely in my top 3.

This went better than I expected. Let me know how you would rate these characters or others I missed!

  1. Oo I can agree with some of these. Takeo was super sweet, but a bit bland at times. I love Kou, but I just didn’t like his whole back and forth between wanting to be with Futaba and wanting to not be with her yknow? I guess there were just too many conflicted feelings for me to fully like him lol. Nice post!
