Guys, I have a confession to make. *gasp* I don’t have a list for this week’s theme of “purple hair”. I know there are probably a lot of guys with purple hair; but I’ve probably yet to see that particular show much to my dismay *sigh* I had someone else other than Murasakibara in mind, but…although he has purple hair, I acknowledge him for more than just his hair! I’m sure today’s feature comes as no surprise to you; because..sports.
Atsushi Murasakibara is one of the 5 Generation of Miracles (Kiseki no Sedai) from the anime Kuroko no Basket. Murasakibara is an interesting character; he doesn’t rank super high on my KnB list; but he has quite a few characteristics that I can definitely relate to.
Big Kid at Heart
Atsushi gives a whole new meaning to the term “big kid at heart”. The childlike personality he embraces is the my favorite thing about him. The childlike qualities that he possess are there for comedic effect He literally acts like a kid when he’s provoked with taunting; he retorts back as a kid! See Exhibit A below (I’m having it start at the scene in question). On the other hand, he often relies on others to make decisions. Is it due to his lazy personality? Probably.
Don’t Poke the Bear!
I’m very much like Atsushi in terms of being really mellow; and usually let things go right away. This is another trait of Murasakibara that (kind of ) appealed to me. Much like Murasakibara, I’m bound to let things go and be non-confrontational. It really takes a lot for someone to do something to really irritate me and get me to react. However, the slight difference is that Murasakibara is shown to be uninterested in basketball, and bored with it most of the time, even if the opponent is good he hates people that get fired up. He only got fired up about the game is when he realized he could possibly lose.
Major Sweet Tooth
Whenever Murasakibara is seen on screen he’s got numerous snacks with him. He’s a huge snack fiend! The only time you won’t see him eating something is when he’s playing basketball. With that being said, I LOVE SWEETS! Ice Cream, Cake, Cookies, Candy galore! Muahaha!!! This is the biggest thing I have in common him because I am a sucker for sweets. Ice cream and cake are the usual favorites while Murasakibara loves his chips and Maibou.
That just about wraps up this week’s MCM and as Murasakibara’s motto goes: “Sweets are Justice”, so grab your favorite snack and eat away your Monday Blues!
