Sorry I have been away for so long, I have been very busy in my regular life and my blog fell a little lower on my priority scale.
Due to the similarities of today’s and tomorrows challenges I have decided to combine the two.
On to the actual topic though, I tend to get very attached to the support characters of anime. They are usually a lot funnier and sometimes even more interesting than the main characters, such is the case of my chosen supporting male.
Eiji Nizuma is the rival manga artist of the main characters in the series. According to the writer and artist of the series, Eiji is heavily based on the writer of One Piece, Eiichiro Oda who is a friend of both the writer and artist. As a fan of the One Piece series I find it pretty funny that such a hyper
Other than being based on one of my favorite artists, I love how dedicated Eiji is to his craft, as well as to his own wants and needs. He has no problem completely disregarding the wants of his editors if it comes down to what he believes is right for his art and though I doubt I would ever do the same, I can’t help but admire his tenacity.
Shockingly similar to Eiji is my chosen female supporting character. Like Eiji, she is hyper and a tad crazy but unlike Eiji, she us also capable of being quite dangerous.
Blair the Cat is originally thought to be a witch when she is first encountered by Maka and Soul in the series Soul Eater, but in truth she is really just a cat with magical powers who made the not so great decision to wear a witch style hat in a world where witches are hunted and killed.
Despite not being the witch they believed her to be, Blair does have the full capability of being a witch with a capital ‘B’ with no problem messing with friendships and partnerships to get what she wants. Besides being a bit of a bee-yotch, Blair is also cheerful and hyper who makes life in Soul and Maka’s apartment chaotic hell.
The only problem with Blair is that she is mainly used as a fanservice character, which kind of sucks, since she could be a funny and interesting supporting character if the sexy aspect of her was toned down to let the other personality traits shine through.
I think Blair is a perfect example of a female background character used for completely the wrong reason, BUMMER!
