Anime: Death Parade
Voiced By: Tomoaki Maeno
Occupation: Arbiter, Bartender
Background: Decim is the bartender of Quindecim and an acting arbiter for the dead.
Reason for CotM: I thought I would choose someone from my list of “preferred anime couples” or “unofficial anime couples”, but I decided to go for something different this month. Decim isn’t anyone extravagant, in fact he seems rather stone faced. However, over the past couple episodes of Death Parade you begin to see that behind that cold stare he does have a heart. He cares for the people around him, and for the ones he has to judge. Despite working for years he still has a sense of loyalty and compassion for humans. Although he may not be a lover, or even an interest in anyone’s eyes I wanted to choose him for the February character of the month. Who knows, maybe he’ll end up surprising us all in the end.
Unfortunately for my extremely busy work schedule I wasn’t able to pick up as many series as I wanted to this season, but I’ll see what I can do about keeping up with the ones I’m watching. Although after watching the first few episodes of many series, I can’t say I am too thrilled about any of them.

Name: Hak Son
Anime: Akatsuki no Yona
Voiced By: Tomoaki Maeno
Alias: Thunder Beast
Background: He is the former chief and general of the Wind Tribe. He is famously known as Thunder Beast for his fighting skills that was said to be unrivalled by anyone, earning him the title of the strongest soldier in the kingdom.
Reason for CotM: I feel like a single character can really turn an anime around for me. In this case it was Hak. It isn’t that I don’t like Akatsuki no Yona, but I can definitely say that I wouldn’t like it as much if it weren’t for him. He’s not only a very loyal, badass character, he’s also compassionate and has a sense of humor. As the anime progresses he’s showing great levels of character development that could really be a decision maker during the review.
