Here we are the final 10 posts of the 30 Day Anime Challenge, so let’s get the ball rolling with Day 21, My favorite goofy character from an anime. Okay so I’m going to take some liberties with this prompt by picking a character that isn’t necessarily goofy, but has still given me a good laugh!
This one is from the Spring 2016 Anime season…which I realize makes my choice kind of obvious. This character isn’t goofy per se, instead they are ridiculously over the top in their way of doing thing, making them one of the most unintentionally hilarious anime characters I have seen in a long time. So my pick for my favorite goofy character from an anime is…
The coolest guy in high school, Sakamoto from the Spring 2016 anime series Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto (Sakamoto desu ga?). Yeah I went there… I don’t think I have ever laughed so much while watching an anime series. I don’t really have the words to describe just what makes this guy hilarious, so I’m going to take the easy way out and subject you to some hilarious Sakamoto clips:
When the teacher has it out for you all you can do is rise above the situation. In this clip, Sakamoto does just that with the help of a sturdy bamboo shoot and the perfect form!
As kids, most of us played Hide and Seek, but never with this much skill… Sakamoto takes Hide and Seek to a new level in this hilarious clip!
When his favorite lunch entree is on the chopping block, Sakamoto will stop at nothing to save it…
Sakamoto takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary, and that’s why he’s my favorite goofy character from an anime. With his practiced grace and poise, Sakamoto is sure to make you laugh… Oh, and for those of you who have yet to watch this hilarious series… you are missing out!
So what did you think of my pick? Who would you have chosen as your favorite goofy character from an anime? Let me know in the comments section! As always THANK YOU for reading!!!
