Happy Friday morning, mates! I’m super excited for the upcoming weekend because I will be spending it with my parents, where I will get to eat tons of delicious food cooked up by my chef-tastic mum! Good food makes me happy and cheery. So, I decided to put my joy into conjuring up another fun post to shift the weekend shenanigans into gear.
Since I had a delightful time with concocting a list of Top 5 Megane Ladies that make my swoon, mostly in a lustful manner, I thought it would be cool to go the opposite route this morning and share my Top 5 Megane Dudes that fill my heart with warmth. Now, I have to be honest, this was a damn difficult list to create. I think most of that has to do with the fact that I haven’t seen (finished) many anime with guys who wear glasses. When I did a Google search of some of the popular ones, I was definitely left scratching my head. I suppose that means I need to watch a shite ton more anime, now doesn’t it?
Most of the people I’ve chosen are actually quite a contrast to my list of sultry femmes. While a couple of them are supremely badass, for the most part they are rather adorable and gush-worthy in a completely different way—the kind and compassionate way. I feel like this says something about me psychologically, but who’s got the time to dive into the hot mess? 😉
05. Kaien Cross
Kaien Cross is the headmaster in the anime series Vampire Knight. The anime isn’t the greatest thing ever, but he is one of the reasons I like to re-watch it every now and again. Kaien is Yuki’s father-type-person and I absolutely love him so much. The way he gushes over Yuki is, as aforesaid, so fricking adorable. I also like that he has this serious demeanour about him when he’s not being all corny over his kid, and he’s a badass, legendary swordsman as well.
Hamatora is probably one of my favourite serials that I have seen within the past five years, mostly because there’s so much depth to it, and Murasaki was the second character that I immediately fell in love with. He’s stylish, has a great set of frames, and is beautifully loyal to his friends. He’s also a wonderful balance to his goofy impulsive partner, who reminds me so much of Dazai from Bungō Stray Dogs. Murasaki also has an excellent smile and sense-of-humour, which doesn’t come out often, but when it does, it’s amazing.
03. Hirotaka Nifuji
Hirotaka from Wotakoi: Love is Hard for an Otaku is such a loveable little nerd. He’s very awkward, smokes like a chimney, loves video games and is bloody brilliant at playing them, and is such a sweetheart of a boyfriend. He can also be pretty frightening when he’s upset or angry. When the megane shines, you run the hell away. Hirotaka is definitely one of my favourite specs-wearing dudes.
02. Walter C. Dorenz
I can’t have a megane list for guys and not include Walter, especially when I included Sir Integra in the girly version. From the Hellsing franchise, he is the butler to Sir Integra and such an incredible fucking ass-kicker! I would never want to face him in battle because then I would become mince-meat in seconds. Sort of like that terrible laser scene from the American live-action of Resident Evil. Aside from being the vicious epitome of a badass, he’s very witty with a sharp intellect, and has quite a fascinating backstory to him.
01. Ginoza Nobuchika
No other man shall ever be my number one… probably. Ginoza is a veteran inspector who works alongside Akane in the first season of Psycho-Pass. He is in season two, but in a slightly different role. He is hot fricking shite. Ginoza’s smouldering intensity that’s spurned on by a constant broody attitude is very sexy. His intelligence is impressive and the questions that he brings up during the show as a whole, really contribute to the serials very hefty themes. Also… did I mention he’s hot? Because WOW. Aaaaand watching him fight/argue/overall hate on Kōgami gives me so much life.
You can’t have a megane list and not include Maes Hughes. If you’re looking for the ultimate of ultimate fathers who gush and fawn over their beautiful little girls, this guy is it. Also, he was an exceptional soldier and a friend to the Elric brothers, had some of the best humour ever in the entire series, and was an outstanding human being across the board. The only reason he isn’t in the actual top five is because my heart still hasn’t healed from his role in the series. Like most fans of Fullmetal Alchemist, it more than likely never shall.
Definitely far less blood-shedding happening stuff (yup, I just said that terribly structured statement, but fuck it; I’m not changing it) than the previous list. What did you think? Do you like any of these bros? Who are some of your favourite megane guys? Come chat with me in the comments! I’d love to hear from, y’all.
