After being exposed to so much traptastic goodness this season, you have to admit that traps, more often than not, are hotter than real girls. And since we’re watching anime, the concept of ‘real girls’ is an ephermeal one that wavers between the realms of sanity and chaos and utter despair anyway. So, let’s just ‘fap first, worry later’ okay?
Even though I said all that, which one of you is brave enough to fap to a trap (zomg rhyme) of one of these following characters? These characters from recent anime epitomises manliness (or gentlemanliness), but which of them would be the best as a trap?
These are our competitors (With additional commentary by Impz in Lupus’s entry):
Beserker, the re-incarnation of Hercules himself, a man amongst man (well, technically a demi-god). He also has a loli. From Fate/Stay Night.
Impz’s verdict: He might be able to play a really tall Viking gal? Or perhaps, he can try being a female bodybuilder. I mean he already has the body!
Harima Kenji, a man who can be both tough and sensitive, has been on a tuna boat. Not even Onizuka went here (though he was close), and if Onizuka isn’t manly, who is? Don’t let the fact that he draws a romance manga get in the way of your vote. From School Rumble.
Impz’s verdict: He will definitely be a good Yankumi! I mean a Yankee mother. I mean, he can always thrive to be the next R&B hot chick of the season.
Sagara Souske, the pilot of the Arbalest and, occasionally, Bonta-kun. Don’t let that fluffy suit fool you, this well trained Sargeant has weathered many hardships and has the scars to prove it. From Full Metal Panic!.
Impz’s verdict: Do not let that seriousness fool you. I swear that he cosplays happily to impress Tessa. Trust me. I believe that he will be good with some really cute frilly skirts. I swear to it.
Kyon… he’s uh, not very manly, but who cares? Everybody loves Kyon. His harem is nothing less than legendary, and you have to respect a man with a legendary harem. From The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi.
Impz’s verdict: Kyon has tons of eye practice with Mikuru’s various cosplays. I am sure he can do anything seriously. Meido? No problem. Bunny? No problem. Haruhi has all of them.
Alucard. He’s is frigging Alucard, do I really need to convince you of his manliness? I think his guns (the size of which I’m sure aren’t uh… because he’s lacking in other departments) can do the talking. From Hellsing.
Impz’s verdict: Hmm, Alucard can be the….ermmm….gunslinger girl part 2. No, that won’t be right. Vampires…vampires…neko mimi mode?
Alphonse Elric, a soul residing in a suit of armour, but that doesn’t deter him from being manly. In fact, the lack of a body has probably made him more of a man than any other man alive. From Full Metal Alchemist.
Impz’s verdict: Hmm, the armored Al. Well, we already have the example from Full metal panic OVA that had Tessa’s day? A skirt is fine too.
Remember, this is NOT A GODDAMN POPULARITY CONTEST. Vote for the one that you think will make the best trap. Not ‘look the best’, but ‘be the best’. How you define that is up to you. Vote away!
P.S. Before any of you try to one-up me, I already know there are more manly men out there, from anime that neither I nor Impzie, my co-conspirator in this poll For Great Justice™, have seen or know about. These are all we could come up in our 30 seconds session of brain-storming; just shut your trap and vote in the poll.
P.P.S. If any of you accuse me of trying to rig the poll with my image selection, you will be met with swift and indiscriminate injustice.
