I chose Vash as my avatar because I find myself very similar to his character(lotta inner turmoil, puts on a façade for most people). I've hit a dry spell lately in watching anime, I thought at first it was because I ran out of things I liked(late 90s scifi Trigun, Outlaw Star, etc...) but lately ive been thinking about what makes me love not just those shows but the others I've grown to love(Ghost in the Shell SAC, Black Lagoon, Spice & Wolf, among others). Especially I am fond of Spice & Wolf, but I could never put my finger on why I liked it; until now. It sounds insane but GiTS, Black Lagoon, and S&W all have one thing in common: A female lead backed up by a Guy who probably loves her and puts up with all her drama. Its not very pronounced in GiTS Stand Alone Complex but in the rest of the franchise it is more hinted that Batou deeply cares for the Major. Black Lagoon NEEDS a third season to resolve all the tension.
Anyway I'm not saying I enjoy purely Tsundere genre anime, but I guess more like 2 Adult lead characters who are mature but really should just be together. PLANETES anyone?
