Do Sunglasses Count?

It is a weakness of mine that all my half finished posts take a backseat to a hot guy.

Well, apparently it is Megane Day so who am I to break tradition.


I still have yet to watch the second season of Durarara!! but I really did enjoy the first one. It had a slow start but once you see the piece come together around episode 7 your mind will be blown (click bait confirmed).

After paging through the many many many men from sports anime… I decided to go in a different direction. I went with the “gentle” giant Shizuo Heiwajima.

The first impression of this guy is that he is extremely violent…

Shizuo Throwing bike

Which he kind of is…

He does have a gentle side and he hates the fact that his temper gets the best of him. He relates his anger to his strength. Shizuo takes the burden of his loneliness on himself because he believes that is what he deserves. He wants his power to be used to protect someone/something but he isn’t sure what it is yet. Also he is always afraid of hurting those he loves.


One of my favorite things is him running around shouting his nemisis’s name. I know it is weird but I kind of find his animal rage adorable.


In the end he is a pretty stand up guy and would make a super loyal friend. Even though he doesn’t need his glasses to see… He is my pick for Megan Day!

Happy watching!

  1. As I might have said once, I’m not a huge fan of sports anime, but gotta admit that this character sounds really interesting. In fact I just googled him and came across the a youttube clip where he picked up that motorcycle just because the clothes he got from his kid brother were damaged lol😂😂 That was really hilarious, and actually made me add this anime to the list. Looks to me like you made a pretty good choice for this day 😊😊

    1. I had a bit of a mistake. I was looking for a sports anime guy since… you know… abs… lol but I went with him since he is a pretty awesome character. It is more of a thriller/action anime that said I think you would really love it! It has some amazing funny moments and I really love the OP too. I still need to watch season 2 so hopefully it holds up. This is an anime that actually surprised me with the plot twist.

  2. Sunglasses definitely count. I still haven’t watched Durarara through (I haven’t made it past the first episode) but it is forever on my list of shows to go and finish (it took me a lot of goes to get into Baccano as well and I ended up loving that). I do also have the first volume of the light novel sitting on my reading pile so I should definitely get to it sooner rather than later.

    1. Yeah, I think I would have given up on it if it wasn’t the only anime I had downloaded to watch on Netflix. And then it got to like episode 6 or 7 and from there on the pacing really came together and the long set up made so much more sense.
