On acting as Gray
Gray is a character that is easy for him to voice, and he acts Gray out relatively naturally.
On Natsu
It’s easy for him to act alongside Natsu (Kakihara Tetsuya) since they’ve been doing it for a long time. It’s easy for them to ad-lib when asked to do so by the director. Gray and Natsu have both matured, and fight less these days.
On the relationship between Gray and Juvia
He thinks that there isn’t enough information on how Gray feels about Juvia, but they have good teamwork when they’re fighting together. He doesn’t feel that Gray likes Juvia romantically at this stage, but rather thinks of her as a close friend. Their relationship is ambiguous (“gray”), and he acts it out that way.
About Gray in the new season of the anime
He thinks of Gray as a character that supports others, and acts him out with that in mind. Gray is someone who helps Natsu and Lucy. He thinks that Gray has a rather tough position in the story. Natsu is the protagonist and a Dragon Slayer, while Erza is undisputedly the strongest female in Fairy Tail. Lucy’s special because she’s a Celestial Mage, and there are things that only she can do. He has thought about the things that only Gray is able to do, and acts out Gray while keeping that in mind.
A character he likes, excluding Gray
Natsu. There’s a lot about Natsu that has not been fleshed out, and he had asked the director about it. He was told that Mashima-sensei said that as the story digs deeper into Natsu’s background, it might be nearing its end. Natsu’s story is tied to the main plot. He thinks that Natsu is a mysterious character.
What he wants to do if he were Gray
Build a “Sapporo Snowman” in Hokkaido, and make ice sculptures for a living. He’ll only work in winter and take things easy the rest of the year. He’ll go to Okinawa in summer and try to make ice sculptures there. In other words, he wants to make full use of “Ice Make”.
What magic he’d like to have if he were a mage
“Time Warp”. He’s not good with planes and avoids flights that take more than an hour. He’ll be able to get to different places easily and be able to do more things if he would warp time.

HE RECORDED A HARD YAOI WITH KAKIHARA OF COURSE HE’S COMFORTABLE WITH HIM

I REMEMBER THAT. HE WAS THE SEME OMG

??? Should I even take this seriously. Juvia was SAVED by her love for Gray. It was the start of the Juvia full of love we all love now. She didn’t suffer from loving Gray at all. Not to mention Gray is one of those characters that suffer plenty throughout the whole manga.

Good evening, Ichi-sama! I hope your day is wonderful! ( ^ω^ )

Evening, Anon-dono! (It’s morning right now tho…
My day has just started marvelously because of your cute message ;)
Have an awesome day!!!

Free! Confessions (Episode 12 edition)

Apparently, you can find a dream just by looking for it because while Haru spent the better half of this season making it clear that going pro was not what he wanted, it only took about 5 minutes for him to do a complete 180.
While I’m glad that he’s happy, if you don’t think that this epiphany was contrived due to time constraints, you might need to rewatch the entire season.

tsukkiyamass:

okay but the last thing i want is for haru to come back to japan and him and makoto act like nothing happened, this is something they still need to talk out and make up properly. i don’t want haru to just show up and makoto be all sweet like he is and pretend haru didn’t hurt him.

I have a feeling KyoAni is going to either omit or just touch a little and breeze over the scene between them. Because relays and Rin. And honestly this episode wasted so much screen time on Rin’s backstory… Which had been dealt with long ago… So all the build-ups are gonna be sent to waste. And I’m disappointed. This show could have done better.

mimorihanakami:

I’m gonna say what I feel and probably lose any Free! followers I have but seriously Haruka Nanase isn’t even the main character of Free! anymore. It’s Rin. Everything always ends up about Rin when people (other than Makoto, Nagisa, and Rei of course) talk to him about his future.

M: It’s such a cold day, I want to warm up in a kotatsu… Ugh~ s-so cold… it’s so cold… the wind feels so cold, my ears hurt… Haru, it seems like today is supposed to be the coldest winter day yet.

H: Is that so.

M: I’ve always wondered, doesn’t Haru feel cold wearing so little?

H: It’s no problem.

M: I feel cold just looking at you! Haa, it’s been so unbearably cold since I woke up this morning, I’m wearing extra layers beneath my coat today.

H: Aren’t you wearing too many today? You look bigger than usual.

M: Eh? Is it really that much? Is it weird..?

H: Ignore that for now and let’s go. Or we won’t we able to board the train.

M: Eh? Wait, Haruuuu!!

Makoto’s voice is so moe(人´∀`*)~♥

IchiHime + Character quotes [2/?]

"His movements are unquestionably sharper than before. I was right in arranging for her to be here, then. It’s as I thought; Ichigo will show his true strength when he has something to protect close by.
