Anime Alucard is bishounen but manga Alucard is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYY more bishounen
He's not bishounen! Bishounen translates to "beautiful boy" and is used to refer to men who look like women. Not just hot guys.
Alucard is most definitly hot, but he's no bishounen.
Sorry. It bugs me
Here's a definition:
" Trans. "beautiful boy." Bishounen are the beautiful, androgynous young men who populate shoujo manga and anime. According to Antonia Levi, bishounen characters are products of the influence of the Takarazuka (all female) theater on early shoujo manga, and are modeled after male-impersonators (10). Bishounen characters are not necessarily, but frequently, homosexual or bisexual; part of the tradition stems from the historical male-to-male distanced, non-sexual romances of samurai times (Levi 76). A sub genre of shoujo manga exists called bishounen manga which focuses on gay male romance, but instead of catering to gay males, it caters almost exclusively to heterosexual girls and women (Levi 14)."
Im new too and have some troubles with da' language but anyway let me try too *Tiefer Atemzug* Yaii!Erinissocoolvormakingthissite andthisForumandthecomicandmakingitfreeandlettingmejoinand*gasp* *huff huff* ran out of air there by the way I live in Germany was born there and my mother language is German too but i'm not a Nazi.
Just a note: Erin didn't make this forum and site. I did.
I'm bragging about being g/f to someone vastly indirectly related to Tepes. ;D Oh yeah, all anime fans are nuts. I'm spending over $200 on Gensomaden Saiyuki, my b/f's collecting Trigun, and we haunt certain sites looking for release dates for Hellsing #6. Yup! Loony!
March 2 Dark Horse doesn't have a preview up yet though.
There was a cousin of Vlad Tepes on the Mayflower. My b/f's mother does a LOT of geneological research on her family, and she found a record of a cousin of his coming over to America. Now, of course, considering the breeding that went on in the first few colonies and my b/f being able to trace his mother's side back to their first ancestor, he's crowing about being vastly indirectly related to Tepes. *snicker*
I'd be excited about that too if I was him. It's still pretty cool.
