Anybody else think it might be time to start a character page?
Hey, go for it.
Heh, I was hoping mentioning it might get me a volunteer so I wouldn't have to do it. I guess I'll get off my butt and start one.
Okay, a basic page is done. Feel free to flesh it out, people!
Is Igarashi actually gay (as in, has there been any Word of God on this), or is this a case of No Bisexuals? Just because he has a boyfriend and rejects a girl at one point (a girl who is his student, mind you) doesn't mean that he doesn't like girls at all...
I believe Gina has gone on record that he is gay. Or rather, she hasn't suggested he's bi. The statement on the page about Ho Yay only mentions he's in a gay relationship, which is true. Since he's not really a main cast member, I doubt we'll see an arc where they break up, so unless he starts inexplicably regaling us with his love life, we're probably not going to know more than that.
No one ever responded to my hangups on applying Draco in Leather Pants on the trope page, so I'm pulling it. My impression is that this comes from the point in the comic before Kenta had done too much, where there was some debate over whether he felt he was doing what was best for the family but being unreasonably oppressive about it. Since no one really defended him when it became obvious that he didn't care about Kazuo/Emi, I don't think the trope is particularly in effect.
I never understood how it got in there in the first place. I thought it must have predated me, but I didn't think that anyone could find him appealing.
Heh...back when Kenta was first introduced, there were a strangely high number of people that defended whatever he did. Around the time he finally punched Kazuo, that fandom dissipated. I added the trope before the punch. I also find it kind of funny that the "Kenta is always right!" mentality never reformed after Kazuo morphed into The Scrappy, but I guess there's some lines you just can't cross.
Huh. Well, I periodically take breaks from the fans over there depending on what's been happening recently, so I may have missed that era. Obviously, Kenta isn't hot enough.

How well does it match the trope?
