default "The Exception"

Post by tsuii. on 14/03/16, 06:44 am

Just as the title says. Who is or are your "exceptions" to the rule?
To explain: We all have a type. That character or two that we always aim for first in a game. The types that as soon as we hear about a game, we know what order we're going to play them in. Sometimes however, just sometimes. We come across that one character who breaks the exception to the rule.

Example: I always like the more mature, feminine, haraguro, yandere etc. characters. Megane is always a plus. I am usually averse to the loud, younger or more violent types for some reason. They're just not my cup of tea. HOWEVER. The one exception who I have invariably fallen in love with more like a younger brother who I kind of want to just comfort and pet on the head and take to a psychiatrist and just ensure his health and well-being and convince that everything is going to be okay (this sounds really weird I know) is Kanato from Diabolik Lovers.

The moment that game came out I pointed at Reiji and said "You". I immediately knew he was my cup of tea. (I hear you snickering in the background there Reiji fans). I looked at Kanato, or rather heard his screeching and it hit a nerve in my head that just said nope. A few weeks later, I found myself somehow succumbed to his charms. I dug deeper and found him to be terribly endearing. He was my exception. I can think of countless examples that I just am immediately put off from. This damned kid just stole my heart for some reason, and he's probably going to eat it too and I don't mind. 

Ah, now that you have your example it's worth noting that those that don't have a particular type or types are quite rare I've found, but you are more than welcome to participate of course! Everyone is free to participate but please keep it respectful and mindful of other people and their taste! This is just a light discussion for no other purpose than to have fun and to satisfy my curiosity is all.

So there you have it, now do enlighten me.

Hmmmm.....


I'm usually not into shota characters, simply because I usually don't like kids, I find them hard to deal with, and I often end up just overlooking them. The same goes for the usually cuter guys, I prefer men a bit more masculine.

My exception, and this is a pretty recent development, is Dee and Dum from Heart no Kuni no Alice (my profile pic probably gave that away, huh?). At first they got overlooked just like all the others, but before I realized it their manipulative but strangely sincere antics grew on me, and I had to accept the fact that I got turned into a shota-con, lol.

Of course, things got better when they turned into adults in Clover no Kuni, but I still had to acknowledge that they were cuter than my usual cup of tea. Oh well, I love them regardless.

I'm not usually into Yanderes. (Flawed characters, great! But the forceful "Love me or else!"? No.)

However, I really appreciated the ones in Nameless. Their routes were engrossing rather than frustrating. Maybe it's because the writing was good, maybe it's the development, self-awareness, backstory... I don't know.

I guess the lesson is, it's not about what "type" the character is. It's about how they are written.
