Sometimes a bromance is better than a romance #TwelveDays #12

CCY has come out of retirement for his yearly holiday project, so of course, I had to oblige. Even though I had the most bastard of times trying to come up with 12 memories. Either I’m going senile, or this past anime season just wasn’t very memorable.


Durarara wasn’t that great. It certainly wasn’t nearly anywhere near Baccano’s zip code. And DRRR just tailed off in the second half, as the plotline devolved into Izaya basically trying to turn everyone in town into a cast member of Twilight.

But thankfully, there was one Shizuo Hewajima around to steal every scene and foil Izaya’s lame plans. Ok, maybe that’s not quite how the anime ended, but that’s the picture I’ve painted in my mind. The Shizzy and Izaya-kun dynamic (which I’m sure drove the BL writers wild) was scads more interesting than the handful of other odd relationships in the show, mostly because every meeting between the two seemed to end with large machinery being tossed around. I’m not saying I condone domestic violence, but hey, if you’re gonna throw something, throw a fridge.

  1. I love Izaya. I cosplay Shizuo. Work that out. But anyway, as a loyal yaoi fangirl and writer of queer YA fiction, I must say…Shizaya all the way. Because angry–nevermind, I’m not going to post that in a comment 😀

    Nice post, completely approved.

      1. Black slacks, a black waistcoat, black shoes, white collared shirt, black bow tie (mine came with the waistcoat) and the sunglasses. It’s actually really simple. I chose it before I ever watched the series because someone said I could pull it off with a wig I already owned. Going for Izaya would involve shelling out another $30 for a new wig.

    AGREED. ‘Bout time the freaking awesomeness that is Shizuo got a post all to himself. Thank you!!! 😀
