30 Day Manga Challenge Day 6
I never really thought about this seriously until now.
Day 06 – Your favorite character?
I thought about it and thought about it some more. Do I actually have a favorite manga character? Then a character sprung to mind! Who? Fujioka Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club. In away way, she was a very refreshing leading lady. In fact, we have our boys constantly complaining how Haruhi is NOT your typical manga heroine. She’s not ditzy or stupid, nor does she need a knight in shining armor to save her. She doesn’t even think about asking for help and unlike other poor heroines, she is not easily bullied. She’s got a smart mouth at times and can easily cut the spastic Tamaki down to size. I guess one thing you can say that makes her typical is her naivety and her ignorance of her own feelings.
Here is a character who defies typical tropes! I found that refreshing and really enjoyed her dynamic with the boys.
