30DoA.25: Best anime villain: tie between Akio Ohtori and Hellmaster Phibrizzo

Day 25 - Best anime villain: tie between Akio Ohtori and Hellmaster Phibrizzo

Here I'm going to distinguish between characters I like as villains and characters I like as characters. They aren't necessarily mutually exclusive, but there are characters that make me cackle with glee when I realize just how they have the heroes over a barrel, which may not be the same as the characters I find fascinating.

And I admit, I love the mindscrew as my favorite villain technique. So I went with villains that could use it.

Akio is the antagonist of the last arc of Revolutionary Girl Utena. )

30DoA.20: Most ambiguous anime character: Anthy, Revolutionary Girl Utena

Day 20 - Most ambiguous anime character: Anthy, Revolutionary Girl Utena

Part of the problem with this meme is that I'm rewatching Utena now and it is glorious. Seriously, I forgot how much I love it. I have a taste for fairy tales, even if they are a bit dark, and Utena has that feel. So maybe Utena is getting a bit more attention than perhaps it would otherwise.

Anyway, this is going to spoil the hell out of Utena, so be warned. )
