Article Title : Liking Shows, or Characters In Said Shows, Just For Their Looks



Jeez, I know I'm going to get flamed about this one, but I don't really care, this has been bugging me for a while.  I just...it annoys me when people like a character simply for their good looks.  Most of the time they don't even watch the show that much, or delve into the character's personality--they just like the bishounen (or bishoujo) for their good looks, and that annoys me, especially with fangirls.

Yes, I know that most of the Inuyasha fans out there started as fangirls or fanguys, and most still are.  This may sound hypocritical, but I only started watching the show when I was twelve because I thought Miroku is drop-dead gorgeous.  Which he is, but not the point.  But then I realized more about the show and how stupid I was just to like the show for Miroku--it's pointless to watch a show if you're just doing it for one dang person.

For example, most of the Sesshoumaru fans out there just like him because he is also drop-dead gorgeous.  The girls just say he's hot and leave it at that, most (note the "most") don't even really watch the show, maybe once if they happen to be bored at 12:30 on a Monday-Wednesday.  Sure, we all have our own opinions on characters and such...but you should at least watch the show, and try to learn something about the character.

That just bugs the crap out of me.  Most (again, note the "most) just...ugh.  I can't really put my feelings to words right now as I haven't gotten sleep in the past four days due to homework, but I'm sure that you can get my point.  If you're going to like a show or character...don't be shallow and like them for their looks alone.
