    It's coz he's pretty young. and stressed all the time, so hair doesn't grow much, lol. or that his face has scarred too much hair can't grow.

    Now, even say... Canute from Vinland Saga had an androgynous face at some point but I wouldn't consider him a bishounen either.


    Anyone here read Nana?

    from the characters there, I think only Nobu and Shin could be considered bishounen. Ren and Takumi are too... manly, perhaps? Or would you disagree?

    He's in his mid twenties at the very least, so it's not like he would just not be old enough. Apart from the one on his nose he doesn't have too many scars on his face, either

    Canute definitly was a bishonen, it was really funny how the vikings themselves were joking about it

    Um, I consider Canute a bishonen. *shifty eyes* He's clearly shown to be attractive in the series so... yeah. XD

    Agata Soujiro (SKET DANCE)

    Another SKET character except he's introduced in a chapter that's not scanlated yet.
    Spoiler:  show


    Alucard (Hellsing): I find him attractive in a diabolical sense. This may or may not be as creepy as Edward fangirls.

    Akiyama Shinichi (Liar Game)

    Akai Shuichi (Detective Conan)

    I was quite surprised when you mentioned a character from Detective Conan. Clearly I didn't reach up to volume 29, lol. I only watched some two seasons of the anime, so I didn't quite grasp that there would be a bishounen from that manga ever. The early chapters all had kids in it and the scientist. ^^

    I'll say Griffith from Berserk really gave me the wrong image of men.
    He seemed like the perfect man at first, but later on the things he does is unimaginable.

    Oh, right, that one is much more obvious, obviously
    He indeed has quite a girly look to him. That actually made him quite creepy to me, with his arrogant smile.

    Hmm, it is said that the prominent feminine features of the character, a.k.a. bishounen, are usually balanced off with hero characteristics such as special abilities (martial arts, athleticism, etc.) or badboy attitude, or some comedic flair.

    Which of the characters you've encountered do not have these characteristics? In short, just... useless pretty boy?

    I'd say the twins in Ouran High Host Club have no redeeming factor. They're neither athletic, good in martial arts, or the smart ones in the group. And the comedy factor is not them either. :/ They're just... decoration. -_-

    Do you guys know any more that are useless pretty boys?

    Surprising isn't it? There's actually one more bishonen character I could think of at the top of my head -or perhaps two if you count another one as such.

    That's a good question, and it's also a hard one to answer. The closest bishounen I can think of is Hotohori from Fushigi Yuugi. He's the emperor of his kingdom so he spends most of the series away from the action and inside his castle. He has good reason for not being active, but yeah, he's the only character I can think of.

    Unfortunately it seems that there are more useless pretty girls than there are boys.

    Definitely. It gives us a wrong idea of a lot of things!

    When he was voted #1 as the anime character one wants as a groom? Of course.

    Nice one on the Hotohori thought, Asarii. And I agree. He's pretty useless.

    Gintoki is by popular demand a bishounen, but I think it's ironic because he is portrayed as er... uncouth, and his looks are always being made fun of by the characters.

    It actually surprised me that Hibari is on the top 5 list looks like the voters were really influenced by his appearance, because I doubt that he could be any good as a groom (just saying "I will bite you to death" all the time). Makes me remember that KHR is the best example for giving a wrong image of men. 90% of the men drawn by Amano are bishounen, it's like the whole world is just filled with beautiful and handsome men

    Hibari is not the type to fall in love at all so I don't quite understand why he was chosen. He actually voted #1 in previous years as well as Mukuro (!) and Chrome for the bride category.

    Ah, yes. KHR definitely gave us a wrong image of men. Almost all the characters -even the girls- are drawn attractive.

    There's just too many bishies around! @_@ My favourites would be: Kurosaki Ichigo (ultimate bias), Kururugi Suzaku, Lelouch Lamperouge and many, many more which I cannot remember off the top of my head at the moment :x Point is, there have been many bishounen that I have set my eyes on XD
