365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 239/365 Mayama Takumi

Day 239/365

Mayama Takumi

From the anime Honey and Clover, Mayama Takumi starts off as a 22 year old fourth-year art student. He helps out Rika Harada with various errands at her design firm that she can not do because of a disability. He grows strong feelings for her after some time, where at school a girl named Yamada Ayumi has strong feelings for him. His love triangle begins.

Why I like him: Even though he always says in the anime that he is lame and so uncool, I think he is totally awesome and cool! He follows his heart very well and is super determined to meet his goals be it in love or his work. He's completely adorable even if I wanted to punch him at times but that's just part of his awesome charm. <3

Why I hate him: Scroll over for ***SPOILER*** HE DIDN'T CHOOSE THE GIRL I WANTED HIM TO!!! >.<

Overall: If it wasn't for Mayama and his wonderful story I probably would have hated this show to bits because the other love triangle was dreadfully boring to me. Let alone hating Hagu 😛 I gotta watch more Josei anime because I seem to enjoy them a great deal.

  1. Ah Mayama, one of my favorite characters and probably the one I most identify with. And I shipped [you know who] X Mayama from the start, so I was very happy that it worked out that way. (So as not to spoil it for other people, just refer to that entry in this post.

    Want to punch him? Any particular reason, or just violent? :3 Also, more josei would be great, but unfortunately I haven’t found much of it (animated anyway.)

    oh i completely knew that he’s end up with (her) from the beginning too but i just liked the other one so much more cause i didn’t like how much i identified with (the one he ended up with) 😛 as weird as that sounds heh

    and yeah i guess i am just violent XD sometimes his actions were just gaaaaaa noooooooo because of either girl when i really think about it.

    There’s only a handful of Josei animated titles out there. I’m interested to see what I’ll think of Nana. I’m kinda afraid of Hana Yori Dango and Paradise Kiss for some reason… Then again Nana scares me too because of the music aspect… (i’m a strange one heh) even though I really enjoyed Nodame Cantabile

  3. Gah, we need to get on chat sometime, there’s so much I want to say but this is a spoiler-free post!

    Nana and Paradise Kiss kind of turn me off because of what I know about the author and the subject matter/style. The music element of Nana also kind of adds to that for me. But with both of them, I know the author kind of likes the more scandalous or trashy stuff in relationship dramas, which doesn’t really catch my interest. There was a post a long time ago, maybe on Scrumptious Anime Blog, comparing H&C and Nana and how the people who watch them connect with one and not the other depending on their lives and view of life. And I avoid the trashy stuff (and trashy people) like the plague, heh.

    Hana Yori Dango was something that I had heard of but didn’t know it was josei. Might have to take a look at it now. The only other josei show that I know of is Hataraki Man, which I have but have yet to watch.

    i’ve heard amazing things about Hataraki Man. i think ghostlightning watched it recently and i almost dropped everything to watch it too haha

    That’s really interesting what you say about H&C & Nana. Makes me wonder which one I’d have the stronger bond with. I still think it’s gonna be H&C because I generally don’t like “trash” either LOL 😛
