Move over Trafalgar Law (ONE PIECE), I have a new anime crush. Drum rolls, please! Make way for Captain Levi Ackerman from Shingeki no Kyojin (進撃の巨人 / Attack on Titan). He’s my #1 favourite character in this awesome hit series. Just so you know, Mikasa is my #2.
He’s just so bad-ass and cool! He’s referred as humanity’s strongest soldier. Given that he’s a pretty small guy, what could be cooler than being called that?
You know what’s weird? He’s voiced by the same seiyuu who also voiced my former anime crush, Trafalgar Law (ONE PIECE). Readers of my DGS translations already know that I’m a fan of Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷 浩史), and of course Ono Daisuke (小野 大輔) who also voiced Commander Erwin in Shingeki no Kyojin. Not that Levi became my crush just because HiroC voiced him; I just really like Levi’s character. That’s all.
l can also relate to him, especially with his obsessive clean freak personality. I’ve been called a neat/clean freak many times before. . .well, I’m still being called that way now and then, although I’ll vehemently deny it. I just like things to be clean and in order. That doesn’t make me a “freak” in any way. On the contrary, I think it’s quite normal to keep things the way they’re supposed to—neat and clean.
Although I admit that sometimes (not very often, mind you, just sometimes) I get the urge to take apart a room, sometimes the entire house, clean it and reorganize everything. It doesn’t matter whether it’s early in the morning before everyone else is up or even whether it’s in the middle of the night after everyone else is already sleeping. If I have this urge, you’ll find me totally disregarding the time, and then just scrubbing the floor and moving the furniture.
Hmmm. Now that I think about it, perhaps this is the quality of Levi that endeared me to him the most—him being a clean freak. Don’t get me wrong. I still love his super cool fighting techniques and his no-nonsense demeanor, but this quirk of him interested me more about him than anything.
Now you know that Levi Ackerman of Shingeki no Kyojin is my current anime crush. Who’s yours? And if you watched or read the series, what do you think about Levi’s character? If you haven’t watched or read the series yet, well, what in the world are you waiting for?
