Kai’s Ideal Anime Cast: Trinity of Elements
Thanks to Yerocha, who invited me in his project, I now had the opportunity to present my very own ideal anime cast. My cast will use a supernatural theme, with “elements” being the main subject when choosing a character.
As for what elements I’m choosing, I’ll be diving into a deep and emotional depth of Fire, Ice and Lightning, the power trio of most common elements.
Fire is hot, glowy and fiery. My ideal pyrokinetic user had to have personalities which fit these qualities of fire. That means characters like Tsuna won’t work. Going into a more common and generic brainstorming, I deduced that Natsu Dragneel is the most suitable choice.
Some common traits of flame users are that they are simple, hot-headed, and sometimes short-tempered. It sure does sounds like Natsu alright. Not thinking of future consequences, he is the type that just charges straight ahead. Although reckless, his orange, glowy flames sometimes display hints of hopes, and sure enough, he is usually the one who defeats the Big Bad of most arcs.
Fire and water are like opposite sides of a magnet. Because of that, when an ice/water user go against a fire user, what I deem the most important is their contrast. They may be similar, yet, so different in so many ways. Through this mindset, there is only one character I can think of, Tokiya Mikagami from Flame of Recca.
Unlike Natsu, Tokiya is calm and collected. He is more reserved and isn’t as rowdy. He is also rather aloof, having quite a detached altitude over human interactions. While Natsu simply uses his fists in combat, Tokiya employs the use of his sword. What’s more, his sword isn’t something an idiot like Natsu can use efficiently. Tokiya’s weapon, Ensui (“Dark Water”), allows the user to manipulate water and can convert it into the three states of water; liquid, solid and gas.
The last of the trinity, electricity. When I think of electricity, I think of flashiness, and the choice is simple. Misaka Mikoto certainly is flashy, in one way or the other.
Besides, every group needs a tsundere.
Misaka Mikoto is a badass in her own rights too. She can control electricity at free will, use pseudo-telekinesis and fires instant railguns. She will also be the “straight-man” of the group, jabbing at every silly antics which Natsu would probably initiate.
I have now amass a team of three different individuals with supernatural abilities; controlling the elements of fire, water and lightning. I guess the three of them can be fit into a battle royale involving science and magic? Hey, that’s actually pretty cool.. *cough* If you are the type who feel disappointed at the “Magic side” of To Aru Majutsu no Index, you know where to find me..
