Anicoma Diary Star - Male Protagonist #11 : Kamijou Touma ( Toaru Majutsu no Index aka A Certain Magical Index )



Hi viewers !

Ya, I did some random activity for today's posting. I searched for 'male protagonist anime' and these 3 characters came out in the first row came out : Protagonist ( Persona ), Ryuji Kisaragi ( Dragon Crisis ) and Kamijou Touma ( Toaru Majirou no Index ).

At first, I wanna do Protagonist but he's heavily sided with video games. As for Dragon Crisis, there's not much info that can be found yet ( wiki in progress ). I've always wanted to do one on Toaru Majirou no Index so I decided to go with its male protagonist instead.

Real Name : Kamijou Touma
Status : Alive, Esper
Gender : Male
Occupation : Student of A Certain Highschool ( unnamed school )
Manga First Appearence : Chapter 1
Anime First Appearence : Episode 1

Powers/Abilities/Skills : Imagine Breaker, Precognition, Capable Street Fighting Skill, Quick Thinker.

Hairstyle : Spiky black hair
Eye Colour : Dim, clear black eyes
Skin Tone : Fair
Clothes : School uniform

Personality :

Touma is the type that acts before he thinks. He can never just sit around upon seeing someone in a pinch and will go to great lengths to protect or help the person. This he does at great risk to himself, which typically results in him being hospitalized for several days after each confrontation. When fighting seriously against a particularly strong opponent, Touma would usually first declare that he'll "destroy that illusion" of theirs, before actually engaging.

It is evident that even when he is in a blank slate after losing his memories, Touma can still display such personality. Although lacking his memories, Touma does not appear to mope over the loss of them in particular, as the beliefs from his pre-blank state continue to motivate Touma onwards, allowing him to understand what he needs to do, even if he doesn't remember. However, after losing his memories, now seems to approach people with more caution, carefully choosing what emotion or mood to display when meeting someone he thinks he might know, lest they see through his ruse and exploit him in any way. When Touma meets Stiyl once again after saving Index, he displayed politeness and casualness towards him which made Stiyl suspicious. Touma then realized his mistake quickly and created an explanation for his behavior. Touma also bears no grudge on former enemies, and is willing to help them if they asked for it.

Even though he is a well-mannered person, who is kind to people in general, Touma will not hesitate to strike female opponents who harm innocents or disrespect life. Despite his righteous and heroic personality Touma occasionally displays poor choice of words which results in him getting bitten by Index, having bolts of lightning thrown by Misaka Mikoto, and creating misunderstandings with the other girls he encounters.

As the result of his Imagine Breaker negating his own luck, Touma is unfortunate and often bemoans his situation when confronting an unfortunate situation with his famous catchphrase: "Such misfortune!" (不幸だ!, Fukou da!). However, regardless of his own misfortune Touma believes that he is not regretful for being unfortunate, and states that he rather be unfortunate and help people than be fortunate and be happy and not notice people who are suffering.

A second catchphrase he often says in fights is: "I will destroy that illusion of yours!" When he says this, it usually indicates he will win the fight he is currently engaged in. Along with the "Such misfortune" line, this too has fallen out of use by him in New Testament.

Background :

Touma is the son of Kamijou Touya and Shiina who live outside of Academy City. During his childhood he was often seen as a jinx because of the misfortune that his right hand creates and he was called, "The God of Plague" by people around him. Once, a bankrupt and superstitious person blamed Touma for his own misfortunes and tried to stab him, resulting in a TV station hearing about the incident and trying to make a supernatural show based on Touma, as well as releasing images of him without his family's consent. Touma's father sent him to Academy City when Touma graduated from kindergarten as it was a place where many unique and gifted people lived free from superstition and Touma could be free from the kind of things he had experienced back home. This however, was somehow a deliberate plot by Aleister Crowley to bring Touma into the City, and one of the most obvious effects of this is the birth of Kazakiri Hyouka out of the fear of the Imagine Breaker.

Anicoma Diary Star - Female Protagonist #9 : Chi ( Chobits )



Hi viewers !

We are back with a classic CLAMP original female protagonist, Chi from the series Chobits.

Real Name : Elda
Current Name : Chi
Status : Alive, Persocom
Gender : Female
Occupation : Persocom
Manga First Appearence : Chapter 1
Anime First Appearence : Episode 1

Powers/Abilities/Skills : Defense mechanism,
Weapons/Items/Props : Herself

Hairstyle : Long blonde hair
Eye Colour : Brown eyes
Skin Tone : Fair
Clothes : Hideki's clothes, mostly lolita clothes, etc. You can see her from normal to loli clothes most of the time.

Personality : Cute and adorable. Chi is a sweetheart and often say the word "chi". Chi has many personalities. She often reads a book about finding your special person and about being lonely in the world. Since Chi is like a baby learning everything new, she is influenced by what's around her and by what she reads. Chi loves Hideki and wants him to be her special person.

Background : 

Chi (ちぃ, Chii?) is a "chobit," a technologically advanced persocom rumoured to possess true sapience, unlike other persocoms. She is found by Hideki one night in a pile of trash as he makes his way home. Upon turning her on, she is only able to say the word "chi," remembers nothing of her past life, and is unable to perform even the simplest tasks. Because of this, Hideki names her Chi and undertakes to teach her how to function. Because her system cannot be scanned by other persocoms, Minoru Kokubunji suggests she may be one of the legendary chobits. Minoru tells Hideki that Chi needs software to perform common persocom functions such as email, but that he doesn't know which ones, and to wait for Chi to tell you herself. Through the course of the series, Chi learns basic skills, and eventually takes a job to help support Hideki.

While other persocoms are seen performing various computer functions, Chi is seen to do it only once; when she traces Yumi's location through Yumi's PDA. As Chi and Hideki learn more about her, Chi begins to have visions of another persocom who is identical to herself. Hideki (and the audience of the story) eventually learns that this is Freya, her twin, and that Chi was originally called Elda; after Freya fell in love and had her heart broken, her memories were downloaded into Chi, before her system stopped. 

While Ms. Hibiya was telling Hideki about Chi's earlier life, Freya was telling a simpler, less detailed version of the same story to Chi. The fewer details mean, among other things, that Chi is still unaware at the end of the story that Ms. Hibiya was formerly her mother. Midway through the story her full name, Chi Motosuwa, can be seen on her pay envelope. During the series, Chi reads a series of children's picture books, A City with No People, about a character searching for the "person just for me," which were written pseudonymously by Chitose Hibiya as a way of reconnecting Chi to her past self as Elda, and to guide Chi's search for love. At the end of the series, Hideki finally admits that he loves Chi, and is her special person.

Anicoma Diary Star - Male Protagonist #9 : Yato ( Noragami aka Stray God by Adachitoka )



Hi viewers !

From now on, we are starting to change our perception of otakus into a more general term, that is viewers in respect to Anicoma Diary Idol Category 2013 Hayao Miyazaki statement.

The reason behind the change is this :

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-30/miyazaki/the-problem-with-the-anime-industry-is-it-full-of-otaku

Ok, back to the topic, this post features the male protagonist of the new anime series Noragami, presenting Yato, a minor war god who has the ability to sever the ties of people. Enjoy ! ^_^


Real Name : Yato 
Status : Alive, Minor God ( Ongoing )
Gender : Male
Occupation : God of War - Delivery God
Manga First Appearence : Chapter 1
Anime First Appearence : Episode 1

Powers/Abilities/Skills : Excorcising of Phantoms, Teleportation, Severance of Ties of People
Weapons/Items/Props : Shinki and his imagination ( pun intended )


Hairstyle : Shaggy black hair
Eye Colour : Bright blue eyes
Skin Tone : Fair
Clothes : He is often seen wearing a jersey and track pants and a old white bandana/cloth around his neck.  He is also seen wearing a pair of brown knee-length boots. In his imagination, Yato wears a red cape and a golden crown, and is often seen with a pink fan. 


Personality : Yato can be crude and unpredictable, although it is hinted that he can also be a cruel and merciless person. This is strongly implied by Kofuku, who introduces the rumor that he once killed a Shinki and several humans which according to Daikoku, this happened a long time ago, where the rule was "kill or be killed.". These actions might have been motivated by his need to at least exist in people's memories. He answers people's prayers and demands money in return for his help. He graffitis his cellphone number in various places, but it only appears to people in desperate need of his aid.


Background : He is a homeless, jersey-wearing boy who is actually minor deity, and hopes to one day build a grand shrine for himself and have at least 1.2 billion followers. Yato is not acknowledged as a major god, but he does possess the ability to cut all who pass between this world and the next. Yato also has some sort of connection with the Ayakashi's "puppet master".

I met a lot of fellow volunteers, both new and old ones, this time around and they were really friendly n_n

Kiyoka-san and Emi-san :) Thanks for inviting me again this year as a volunteer.

Kana-san, I'm happy that you still remember me despite being last seen at the previous Yosakoi Parade ( one year ago ). I'm so embarrassed that I could only recognize faces. Your memory is really good :D

Also, thanks to everyone who help out to make this parade a success.

For parade photos, I didn't get the photos of the first few teams of paraders ( which sadly includes the yokai and ayakashis from SGGS and a group of cosplay paraders )

And the photo quality ... I need to buy a better one :/

Chicken Rice Evolve ~ Go Chicken Hor Fun xD
Still, it was an overall good experience :3

Although part of the crowd has withered down due to the opening of the Penang Second Link Bridge, held on the same day ( why of all days =_= ).

Anyways, Comic 69 was also held here which is good news for coscard exchanges and other otaku goodies.

That's all for now from CrystalQ here. See ya !

Anicoma Diary Star - Female Protagonist #8 : Mikasa Ackerman ( Attack on Titan aka Shingeki no Kyojin )



Hi otakus !

Presenting Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan aka Shingeki no Kyojin ! 

Sorry for the long wait ^_^" Been a little busy for awhile...

Real Name : Mikasa Ackerman
Status : Alive, Human
Gender : Female
Occupation : 104th Trainees Squad ( Former ), Survey Corps ( Current )
Manga First Appearence : Chapter 1
Anime First Appearence : Episode 1

Powers/Abilities/Skills : Talented Fighter, 3D Maneuver Gear Skill, High Speed and Efficiency, Titan Killer, Genius
Weapons/Items/Props : 3D Maneuver Gear, Red Scarf


Hairstyle : Originally long black hair but was cut short at Eren's suggestion
Eye Colour : Black eyes but depends on surroundings
Skin Tone : Pale
Clothes : Often seen wearing the uniform consisting of a short, light-brown jacket with the badge of the Survey Corps on both shoulders, on the front left pocket, and on the center of the back, a white shirt, a dark brown sash around the waist covering the hips, white pants and dark brown knee-high leather boots. She is also seen wearing a green cape with the symbol of the Survey Corps after entering the faction. A unique part of her attire is a black (dark red in the anime) scarf, which was given to her by Eren after saving her from the human traffickers.


Personality : 

A few years before the storyline, Mikasa appeared to be cheerful, outgoing, yet unusually perceptive child. She became aware of the harshness of nature at an early age, witnessing the manner in which predators would hunt and kill weaker prey. However, her innocence allowed her to push these thoughts to the back of her mind, and she continued to live happily with her parents. 

This illusory peace was shattered when a band of criminals brutally murdered her parents before her very eyes, and when she witnessed Eren Yeager kill two of the robbers in an attempt to rescue her. As the last of the kidnappers was strangling Eren to death for killing his friends, she could no longer ignore the cruelty that defined the world she lived in. As a result, Mikasa lost all inhibition and hesitation, and killed the assailant in a desperate act of self-preservation.

Though she is considerably more withdrawn after the murder of her parents, she still loves and cares deeply for her friends, especially Eren and Armin, seeing them as the last remnants of a family she cannot afford to lose. Her personality as a teenager is very much influenced and molded by Eren, who told her she stood no chance of survival if she did not fight for it. His words continue to stay with her, and her mind automatically recalls them to spur her on when she is close to death. Her determination to protect Eren as much as possible may also have contributed greatly to her phenomenal skills as a soldier. Though she is among the best of the best, she remains humble and refrains from putting on airs or displaying arrogance.

Mikasa has a strong sense of right and wrong, but she is also very protective of Eren and does all she can to advise him to follow what she deems to be the right track. Despite that, she knows well that she cannot always sway Eren in his decisions and makes a point to follow Eren to almost everywhere he goes and stick by whatever final decisions he makes, just so that she can be around to help him out when he is in trouble. The sole reason she enlisted in the military and joined the Survey Corps after her graduation was to keep an eye on Eren, despite the fact that she truly wished to live out the rest of her days in relative peace within the Walls. She also takes Eren's opinion seriously, so much so that when he once said that her hair was too long, she immediately had it cut, even though Jean had just commented that it looked beautiful.

Yet for all her blind loyalty, Mikasa is quite stoic and level-headed. Her will is remarkably strong, and she is rarely seen to lose her cool or be at a loss of what to do, no matter how bleak a situation seems to be. Even when she believed Eren to be dead, outwardly she managed to remain so calm that only Armin could tell that she was battling with the pain of losing her brother. However, she is not completely immune to the effects of her emotions. Her strong feelings for Eren, particularly when he is in harm's way, does at times cloud her judgement - sometimes at the expense of other peoples' well-being. A notable example is the occasion she briefly gave into her grief over Eren's apparent demise and lost the will to live - forgetting her responsibility for the lives of the soldiers she had taken upon herself to lead in the process. 

When it was discovered that Eren was in fact alive and well during the Battle of Trost, Mikasa's cool facade broke, and she openly wept in relief while clinging to his body. Since that experience, her protectiveness of Eren has become more pronounced. Mikasa will now stop at nothing to keep him safe, to the point of being willing to kill anyone who threatens his life and developing vengeful grudges towards those who harm him. She relentlessly attacked the Female Titan in a murderous fury as it attempted to abduct Eren, and later assaulted Reiner and Bertolt with her blades for trying to do the same. When she discovered that the two had managed to make off with Eren and had gotten a five hour headstart while she was knocked unconscious, Mikasa was disconsolate and began to cry at the thought of once again losing Eren. However, even when Mikasa gives in to her sadness, it does not take much to snap her out of it, as she never truly gives up all hope.

Mikasa also has a habit of blushing or expressing embarrassment when others make certain assumptions about her relationship with Eren. Her face flushed when Ian mistook Eren for her sweetheart during the reconquest of Trost District, and also when she told Armin she wished to remain behind with Eren while he and Jean left his room after capturing the Female Titan.

Despite the independence and strength Mikasa has gained, Eren still remains a great source of comfort and reassurance to her. She cherishes the scarf he gave her on the day they met, constantly wearing it unless the weather is too warm, and nuzzles her nose to it whenever she is upset. She is thankful to him for coming into her life, saving her from a horrible fate, and teaching her how to keep on living.  She is willing to face death if it is for his sake, and is also able to smile and accept it, as long as she is beside him.


Background :

Mikasa was born to a Caucasian father and Asian mother.Before her parents' death, she lived peacefully with them in the farmlands of Wall Maria. Mikasa underwent a painful scarring ritual from her mother, whom cut into her skin the mark of their Oriental clan. Being the last of their race made them high value targets to human traffickers, who killed Mikasa's parents and kidnapped her when she was only nine years old.

She was rescued by Eren who tricked and killed two of the slavers. He was then overwhelmed by the third trafficker and on the verge of being strangled. Desperately, Eren urged Mikasa to fight to win. Although she was initially frightened, she came to realize that, "This world is a callous and merciless place," dispatching the kidnapper who was trying to kill Eren. When Eren's father arrived with members of the Military Police Brigade, she was given the scarf by Eren and accepted into his family. This event awakened the fighting instincts and perfect self-control that would later turn her into a formidable soldier. She lived with Eren's family in Wall Maria's Shiganshina District until it was destroyed by the Colossal Titan.

Anicoma Diary Star - Male Protagonist #8 : Kazuma Yagami ( Stigma of the Wind aka Kaze no Stigma )



Hiya otakus !

We return with a new range of characters, this time with the male protagonist of Kaze no Stigma, Kazuma Yagami ! This manga/anime is still in my watchlist but I'll find sometime to enjoy it after looking thru the newer anime/manga coming out especially in seasons, ya? So, let's start with some details on Kazuma Yagami.


Real Name : Kazuma Yagami or Kazuma Kannagi
Status : Alive, Human
Gender : Male
Occupation : Contractor with Kaze no Seirei-Ou, Fujutsushi ( Wind Technique Practitioner )
Manga First Appearence : Chapter 1
Anime First Appearence : Episode 1


Powers/Abilities/Skills : Wind Manipulation, Barrier, Flying, Master of Elements ( except fire ._. ), Camouflage, Ability to distinguish spellcasters from normal people, Electricity Manipulation, Self-Healing Ability, Black Wind State

He's a god o_o Sorry back to the details, lol

Weapons/Items/Props : Contract, eyes, wind


Hairstyle : Brown, smoothed downwards hair
Eye Colour : Brown eyes ( normal ), shining blue eyes ( contract activation ), shining red eyes ( black wind state )
Skin Tone : Mid of tanned and fair ._.
Clothes : Jacket over a black shirt with black pants


Personality :

Kazuma is an anti-hero and the most powerful protagonist for the series as well as an antagonist for a time. He is depicted as being caring and does not hesitate to protect those who are important to him. Kazuma shows his egotistic side most of the time, probably due to him being too powerful in compared with others as stated by Ayano that he had forgotten how weak he used to be after being powerful. Despite his power, he is continuously looked down upon by members of the Kanagi family due to how he is seen as a disgrace for learning wind magic rather than fire magic, which is held to be superior, even though Kazuma was able to defeat his father.

Kazuma were also anti-social in which he rarely intereacts with others unless business is involved. Deep within himself he is engulfed by solitude and sadness. The experience of losing his shelter, a place in family, and his beloved due to the sole reason of being weak which caused a tremendous torment to him that led him to seek power. Due to this, he has become too powerful and overprotective in an effort to be able to protect those important to him and not to lose them again.  There are various times in the show where Kazuma states that he wants to use his power to protect the weak, and then in the same episode will state that he's only doing it for the money, which is sometimes confusing for viewers because it seems like he has no reason as to who he defends. However, this is probably because of the way he became strong. Instead of having been born powerful, he was weak and suffered for it, and to become powerful he had to work for it and make sacrifices.

As such, he has the arrogance of a person who has power, but still understands the feelings of those who are weak. And while he'll protect people who are naturally weak and have no chance of becoming stronger, Kazuma looks down on people who have the opportunity to become stronger, but choose to rely on others instead, and needs to basically be bribed into helping them. This is most predominant when it come to do with anything involving his family.

Since every member has the power to wield fire, there should be very little reason for Kazuma to help, and his bitterness towards them makes him even more unwilling to step in. Theoretically, they could all hone their powers to become stronger, or be like Kazuma and find another element they're more suited for. This is why he has to be bribed into helping Ayano and even his own little brother, Ren, who is the only person in the family who seems to care for him. Both Ayano and Ren are respectfully strong in the standards of the anime and have a lot of potential to become even more powerful, but they still rely on Kazuma. While he may come off as very cold and/or arrogant when he comments on someone being weak or being paid to help out, his reasoning is very solid.


Background :

Kazuma is a former member of the Kannagi household. He was banished from the family by his father after being defeated by Ayano during the successor ceremony for Enraiha, his family's sacred sword, due to his inability to use Enjutsu. Four years later, at the age of twenty-two, he returns to Japan as the most powerful master of Fū-jutsu that has ever existed .   It is later revealed that after Kazuma was banished from his family, his only desire became achieving great power.

He traveled to a small town in China, where he caused all kinds of trouble. That is until, he met Tsui Ling, whom he fell in love with and eventually lived with. Kazuma no longer desired power and along with working part-time at a restaurant with her, took up a job as a freelancer, doing simple odd jobs. His happiness; however, came to an abrupt end when an organization used Tsui Ling as a sacrifice to summon a powerful demon. Blaming himself for failing to protect her, Kazuma once again sought out great power, thus his making a contract with the Wind Spirit Lord.

Some time after becoming a Contractor, he killed the one responsible for Tsui Ling's death. Later, two years prior to the series' beginning, Kazuma made a name for himself as the demon-like wind mage, who did not hesitate to hurt others as long as his task was completed. However, his personality began to turn for the good once again after returning to Japan and meeting Ayano. Admitting near the end of the anime that he could now love another person besides Tsui Ling and he later comes to realize that he is actually in love with Ayano but seems Ayano did not realize that Kazuma was in love with her.
