Forgive me father, for I have sinned - 07 Ghost

happy lance
OK, I said I was going to do a picspam on some of the anime I've been mainlining recently, so...

Imagine a Prussian-Gothic anime world where demons are real, the clergy are badass, and the hottest, most manly character is named…

…Frau.

* Snerk *

Boyfriend has some kind of 70's porn homoerotic thing going on with the bare chest and the chains, but we'll forgive him that because he is absolutely made of awesome.



Frau

Dude has a fucking scythe that shoots out of his fucking arm. How cool is that?

Frau

Apparently to get ordained into this church, you have to pass a fairly difficult test of knowledge, and demonstrate your ability to thrash real as well as inner demons. And be gorgeous. 07 Ghost puts the bishie in bishop.

My favorite holy man of all, however, is the fun, flamboyant and faaaaaaabulous Bishop Lance. Dude's got SERIOUS hair.



He's a little tempermental...



But he can smite the baddies without mussing his 'do.



I love Bishop Lance to pieces and want to slash him with the entire cast, including the mermaid.

Unsurprisingly, the bad guys are also dark and delicious:

07 Ghost

But guess what kids, it isn't a blue bishonen ghetto without the requisite big-eyed male teenagers voiced by women. Exhibit A is Teito Klein. He's a battle-scarred, abused orphan who nevertheless manages to have massive amounts of angsty UST with pretty much the entire cast, including the mermaid.

Teito

But the real reason I watch is for the plot. No, but really. It's fascinating and complex. I especially like their take on the clergy: the church, which superficially seems Catholic, is in fact VERY Japanese, featuring Shinigami (death gods) and reincarnation.

However, note that the pacing is odd in some of the early episodes of the anime, with some parts feeling like filler. To keep the momentum going, I recommend tequila shots for every HOYAY! moment.

mikage et teito

Aaaaaaaaaand something for your hangover.

But seriously, folks, the show gets better and better - and once you've watched all the anime episodes produced so far, you'll go after the manga, which is gorgeous and tightly plotted (much more so than the anime, oddly enough).

Also, the porn? It writes itself.

Not that I would know anything about that...

^m^ somebody's picking on Frau!!! god, he wears more clothes when he's sleeping then when he's awake. the perv needs his ego popped once in a while.

lance cracks me up! i love it when charas go from dead serious to ditzy in 0.3 seconds.

i was poking around in youTube with the amvs but man, if Teito's that UST in the anime i don't wanna watch now.

Have you seen the latest scans? Frau FANSERVICE!!!

With respect to the anime and Teito UST, I might have been exaggerating a bit for comic effect. He's really more emo than anything else. And I'd say the Frau/Teito vibe is very similar to what's in the manga. And Lance is faaaaaaabulous animated, which is reason enough to watch!

but then alot of the fans i've met see manga Frau/Teito full of UST.(i've gotten stoned for asking where the romance was?) but then the fandom's weird: fics are mostly Frau/Teito and amv's mostly Mikage/Teito. there's so many built in pairings... *sniff* makes me sad everyone's going with the blatantly obvious. (i'm so glad there's a new kink meme!)

don't sweat it, i should know better. besides, my connection's fricking slow and i don't have time to wait.

does Lance sound as faaabulous as he looks?

Not too much going on in the kink meme, sadly. Lots of prompts, but not too many fills.

Anime Lance does not sound effeminate. His voice is a very smooth baritone, except when he's excited.

i only put 2, found one in the old meme i'm working through though. imho there's too many Ayanami prompts. i mean, excuse me. i doubt the guy even sleeps let alone fucks. besides he's supposed to be totally hung up on Eve, why would he be with anyone else? yeah, meme's are all for the shits and giggles, but alittle common sense is needed sometimes.

or it could just be me and my dislike for people messing with blatant canon pairings and my overall hate for the guy. :D

oh, so Lance sounds kinda like Gunter in KKM. that's good, i was hoping he wasn't fruity. i don't know why i kept thinking high-pitched and whiny?

Eh, I've always figured kink memes were for crazy pairings, like Frau/hawkzile or something.

I agree with you, I'm glad they didn't give Lance a lisp. He actually sounds more masculine than Urahara, if you know Bleach at all.

maybe that's the prob, everyone's posting their OTP with the scene they want, nothing really out there. did see a Dragon Mikage/Teito one filled in the old meme...

so he sounds like Urahara, just not so gruff.... i can see that!

I thought the 3 nuns/Teito one from the old meme was the most hilarious!
