I've come to the realization that I have a serious megane moe. I think it started with Sumoto Ayu's excellent series, "Watashi no Megane-kun
." OMG, Megane-kun
is damn fine. Sure he's obsessive, psychotic, and little violent...but he's also considerate, caring, and he'll be damned if anything comes between him and Chouko. I got a hold of all the raws and I am in love with the series! Probably one of the best I've ever read. Very emotionally draining and enthralling.
Kawamaru Shin's "Maruhi Megane danshi club
," pretty much solidified my megane moe by showcasing magane wearing guys via four of the sweetest yomikiri chapters I've ever read. The premise for the manga is that the photography club at Shirogane Koukou is really a front for a club dedcicated to photographing and fangirling over hot guys that wear glasses. The caveat here is that only guys who actually need the glasses to see are eligible to be fawned over. lol
Recently purchased a volume of yomikiri entitled "Megane (Hazushite mo ii desu ka?)
." It contains eight free-standing stories that have male megane characters. Unfortunately, many of the characters don't wear their glasses for the duration of their story. The first story is pretty funny, but my favorite is 究極彼氏にやミツキ彼女 by Shiraishi Yuki. It's about a girl (Chisako) who used to be a yankee. After a chance encounter with a guy (Akimomi-kun), she gives up her former life and studies her ass off to follow him to his high school. They become a couple, but will the details of Chisako's former life threaten to destroy their relationship?! It's not as serious as it sounds. This yomikiri is super funny and Chisako isn't the typcial female lead I see in most shoujo manga.
Other megane characters worthy of moe:
Munechika from Gakuen Ouji
Tounomine Hajime from Otomen
megane wearing guys in yaoi manga
That guy from Ouran High School Host club...
That guy from Yamada Tarou Monogatari...
Those guys from CLAMP...
There are more...will have to edit and update.
Maybe I'll try to translate some of the manga I've been reading... It's mostly yomikiri, but it'll be good practice.
