So....

What does my flist feel about the whole 'vic mignogna once again getting his claws into a canonically gay character'?

For anyone who hasn't heard, the most anti-yaoi of the anti-yaoi voice actors, Vic Mignogna, has gotten cast as Greece in the Hetalia dub. For anyone who also doesn't know, Vic tried to tell millions of fangirls that he was the authority on Fai and not CLAMP (and thus insisting that CLAMP would never draw their characters in compromising positions with members of the same sex *cough*)

You know what I think he does? I think he goes in, tries for the gayest character in a series AND THEN HE PLAYS THEM AS STRAIGHT.

Doesn't change my opinion of the characters though. Tamaki was a stretch yes (I will give him Tamaki who could potentially be straight for Haruhi even though I'm much more a fan of his relationship with Kyouya) but Fai was being done in the ass by Kurogane, and I'm pretty sure that's not just a fangirl's opinion, also... Greece and Japan, did it, done it and got a postcard of it to send to relatives back home.

Hmmm...you make very valid points.

I am a fan of Vic's works, but I'm thinking that he just has his beliefs, just like everyone else, and he probably follows them to the letter - I wouldn't put a stamp on it and say that he's homophobic or anything like that. I am not one to judge - his beliefs change nothing for me - I still love Fai/Kurogane together (one of my yaoi OTPs) and Greece/Japan Definitely did a little somethin' somethin' XD.

I would say that Tamaki perhaps doesn't let gender change the love that he has - he is just so full of it that it doesn't matter what gender for him - I am personally a fan of both Tamaki/Haruhi and Tamaki/Kyouya :) The dynamics in both of them are just too good to pass up ^^
