★ Favorite Main Character of 2009: Klaus Heinz Von Dem Eberbach, the Major and one of the leads in the series 'from Eroica with love'. I don't know what it is about Klaus that I like.. maybe it's because he's grumpy. Maybe it's because he has a gun, maybe because he has a fabulously gay art thief after him. If you like subtext and you like commies.. you should read this series.
★ Favorite Villain of 2009: Sephiroth. I'm just saying this because he just came to me and it's crazy how he did.. but voila he was suddenly in my head and I couldn't very well ask him to leave
★ Favorite Video Game Character of 2009: There is only one character that could be, and that is Firion from FF Dissidia (well originally FFII). I didn't expect to like him, in fact I was all about the Cecil in Dissidia, but then when I was playing through Cloud's scenario.. I saw Firion and was like "Wow, he's a pretty cool guy". Sort of like a cross between Cecil and Hakkai, + the cookies and - the hangups.
★ Favorite Game of 2009: Suikoden Tierkreis. Despite the fact that the main character was UBERLY annoying, it actually has a good storyline, and Chrodechilde is absolutely the most awesome female swordswoman ever (Sorry Eshild.. DO NOT HIT ME). But yes, there is still that whole issue with wanting to throw the main character off a cliff though.
★ Favorite Het Couple of 2009: I watched alot of really really good shows with het content, actually was open to them, however I do not think I have ever loved a het couple this year like I did Oscar/Andre. from Rose of Versailles, I just felt so emotionally attached to them that I nearly cried when they finally got together, it was just so beautiful. Even in the fact that I do like yuri, Oscar and Andre just had the RIGHT chemistry.
★ Favorite Yuri Couple of 2009: Mio/Ritsu from K-ON though I think that Kendappa-ou/Souma also win a little bit just because of the sweet lesbian angst and the sheer love that they had for each other. (you want lesbian angst, RG Veda is where the big girls play darlings)
★ Favorite Yaoi Couple of 2009: There are two for this one. The first one is Firion/Cloud from Dissidia. I didn't expect to like it so much because honestly I don't like Cloud -but- I happen to have an excellent RPer for a twinstar who's take on Cloud was rather delightful and didn't cause me to want to vomit. I don't think I really needed to wear yaoi goggles for the subtext in that game, and somehow it just became really sweet to me. The other one is definitely Japan/Greece, because it's there and I love absolutely anyone who does fanart of it.
★ Fandom That You Never Expected To Get Into: Black Jack. If someone had told me a few years ago that I would find a manga about a UNLISCENSED SURGEON quality entertainment, I would of laughed at you and then went back to my buttsecks.
★ Fandom That Made An Unexpected Comeback: Oh gee, I don't know about this one. Oh wait, I do know what I could use for this. Count Cain & Godchild. I finally finished reading the series and oh boy, didn't expect to love Jezebel Disraeli as much as I did.. and in the end his story made me cry.
★ Fandom That Inspired The Most Crack: Oh Hetalia, hands down. Nothing like a good bunch of nation-crack to make you feel alright.
★ Last Fandom of 2009: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. Psychotic Loli's for the winz0rs.
AHEM.. WHY HAVE YOU NOT READ "FROM EROICA WITH LOVE" YET?
