KHR 30 Days Character Meme - Day 5
Day 5 - Best personality feature.
Whoops, I guess I jumped the gun yesterday, huh? Well, to be honest, I’m having a tough time distinguishing between “mental feature” and “personality feature”; both questions to me read as “best aspect of his character that isn’t physical.” I guess you could interpret the first as intellectual as opposed to emotional, maybe…?
Well, all right, since I don’t want to be here all night pondering it, let’s go with that. So since I answered Day 5’s question already, I’ll take another stab at “best mental feature” today. Gokudera is a very intelligent character (for all that you wouldn’t know it most of the time just by watching him spaz out all over the place), but I’d say the thing that impresses me most when it comes to intellect is his ability to track about a billion variables at once. Like, if you think about his fighting style, the number of calculations he’s got to be doing constantly is just kind of staggering. Let’s take the rocket bombs as an example!

Day 4 - Best mental feature.
He has no off switch. Gokudera’s emotions are like a broken water tap that’s always running full blast, AND THERE ARE NO PLUMBERS. ALL THE PLUMBERS ARE DEAD. Basically what I’m trying to say is he’s a crazy guy who just has ALL THE FEELINGS and practically no control over any of them. If I ever met someone like this in real life I’m pretty sure they would drive me nuts, but slap this personality trait on a fictional teenage boy and I am ALL OVER THAT SHIT.

Day 3 - Best physical feature.
His face. More specifically, his faces. Gokudera has one of the most expressive faces of any character in any anime/manga I can think of, and the great thing is that because of his personality, we get to see him cycle through his full range of expressions on a fairly regular basis. Let me tell you, I love this child, but no one ever said he had a good poker face. William Shatner would look at him and call him overdramatic.
BUT I LOVE IT.
^ I stole this thing from Wikipedia and one of these days it would be great fun/a magnificent waste of time to go through the entire list and find a Gokudera face for EVERY ONE OF THESE EMOTIONS. But as it is, I’m just going to post a few of my favorites.
(warning: “a few” = “20, apparently.”)

Day 2 - Your First Impression
Pretty sure my very first thought in relation to Gokudera was something along the line of “THAT HAIR, THOUGH.” This was before the hair was sexy, you see. When Amano’s art style for KHR sexied up, Gokudera’s hair was one of the first things to go FULL SEXY, but back when he first showed up… well, you know what, it’s easier to just…
KHR 30 Days Character Meme - Day 1
So I’m just about wrapping up the most chaotic fucking week ever, and during said week, there were several points where I just said to myself, “Self, if you ever make it through this stupid week, you need to set aside some time to sit back and do something that makes you happy.”
"That’s all well and good, but what does make me happy?" I replied (to myself). Then I actually thought about it for two seconds and was all like, "OH YEAH, RAMBLING ABOUT KHR CHARACTERS."
So yeah, that’s the story of how I am finally going to try out this meme and spend the next month TALKING ABOUT GOKUDERA, oh my gosh I am so excited.
Day 1 - Introduce the character.
audiblehush asked: Hmmm FMK: Yamamoto, Gokudera, Ryohei (So predictable, sorry... ;)
I can do this all night y’all
OH MY GOD GOKUDERA I’M SO SORRY BUT RYOHEI IS JUST PERFECT HUSBAND MATERIAL HOLY SHIT IT WAS A TRAP THIS QUESTION WAS A TRAP!!
KHR 314: Delicious Math
I actually have reviewed this chapter before but that was MANY MOONS AGO so let’s revisit it just for fun! It’s not like I’m going to say no to this chapter because LOOK WHO IT IS ON THE COVER.
Fuck yes, we are doing this. Right now.
KHR 407: A Mild Conundrum
or, I guess, we could go with that title. That works too.
Except the thing is, I was sitting here reading this, and I was all like, “OH MY GOD IS REBORN FINALLY GOING TO MAKE TSUNA CHOOSE BETWEEN BEING A MAFIA BOSS AND… NOT… BEING ONE?” and I got all excited and also nervous because IS IT ENDING IS IT ENDING IS IT
and then of course it turns out that the actual plot of this chapter is “Reborn tries to get Tsuna laid”
Sometimes there is just this dissonance between me and this series, man, I don’t even know.
KHR 406: PSA
THE VARIA ARE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR ORGAN DONORS, AND FOR SOME REASON I GET THE DISTINCT IMPRESSION THAT “WILLING” ISN’T NECESSARILY A QUALIFICATION THEY CARE ABOUT
I THINK THIS WARRANTS SOME CONCERN. EVERYONE PLEASE GO MAKE SURE YOUR DOORS ARE LOCKED, RIGHT NOW.
PLEASE TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES. BUDDY SYSTEMS, CURFEWS. MAKE SURE ALL YOUR SMOKE ALARMS HAVE BATTERIES.
THIS IS WHAT WE TRAINED FOR, PEOPLE
OH MY GOD IT’S OVER BUT IT’S NOT OVER. /wipes my fucking brow omfg
man what is this feeling of relief and also nervous-but-excited, how do I even process this.
When you literally have no idea what’s next, and whether or not it will be good or bad, that really is… something.
KHR 405: The Past and Future of Tri-ni-Sette
THAT’S ACTUALLY THE REAL CHAPTER TITLE, I DIDN’T CHANGE IT BECAUSE WELL. IT’S KIND OF EXCITING ISN’T IT?
I mean damn, this oughta be good! SPOILERS, THE TRI-NI-SETTE ARE ACTUALLY AMANO’S HORCRUXES. And Squalo is actually the last horcrux, that’s why he apparently doesn’t die no matter what you do to him.
that was like, the OPPOSITE of escalating quickly
that shit got pretty swiftly de-fucking-escalated
CLOSE OR AT LEAST SQUINT YOUR EYES IF YOU HAVEN’T READ CHAPTER 404 BY NOW, I’M SORRY, SPOILERS
the way his face and his entire outfit just PEEL OFF like that
I was thinking, what if next week he goes and peels off the Kawahira disguise too, and underneath that, he is actually like. COYOTE NOUGAT.
OR SHAMAL. Or idk, someone else that we haven’t seen in a long long time and everyone forgot about them. Maybe he’s just got LAYER AFTER LAYER because this is KHR and THE FINAL VILLAIN IS ACTUALLY AN ONION.
