*points at icon* he
this lad is koito otonoshin from the manga/anime golden kamuy!!
Did they inspire you when creating your OCs?
Well I did make a self indulgent fan oc to interact with him so... yeah, other than that not really!
Do you share any traits or quirks with them?
Hmm... not really... Koito is incredibly athletic, doesn't hesitate to kill enemies and is super rich... maybe the quirk where he freezes up and rambles incoherently in front of his crush, lol
Ever thought about cosplaying them?
no, my skintone is way too light aha;; i've cosplayed another character from the same series though!
Did they ever help you out during some harsh times?
YES i'm not even gonna elaborate but yes...
Was their source material good? Is it still a fav of yours?
another YES!!! golden kamuy is an amazing manga (the anime adaptation is just okay) that i highly recommend. A perfect blend of comedy, drama, amazing character dynamics and motivations, and naked dudes. Keep in mind it is intended for adult readers
If your character is/was real, was the actor/actress choice for them good enough? (Voice Actors count! ovob )
Koito's japanese VA is amazing! he does a great job nailing koito's satsuma dialect
Do they have any alternate outfits or special event skins you love?
YES.... he wears a performing outfit during a circus arc and ahhhh i die every time i look at it he looks so good
Did/do they inspire you in your everyday life?
Yes!! he's inspired me to do a lot of creative projects like plushies, figures, and art of him, which translates to more creative energy overall!
Do you think they'd look good as the opposite sex?
i've seen genderbend fanart of him before and while it's not really my thing, it's impossible for him to not look cute!
What do you think is their biggest flaw?
Definitely his obsession/love of his first lieutenant, Tsurumi. Tsurumi is a manipulative character and antagonist that Koito is super duper obsessed with. In order for Koito to mature as a person, he needs to get over his blind devotion. (the manga is still ongoing, so this may happen sometime soon lol!)
If you could give them an occupation besides their current, what would it be?
currently he's a soldier. due to his gymnastic ability he could definitely be some kind of performer or something, although i've seen lots of amazing fanart of modern AU stuff where he's an office worker and honestly the suit is a++ so that works too
