So this is another challenge I've seen going around Vingle lately and I'd like to join in! Like everyone, I am a complicated mix of morals, ethics, ideas, reactions, and interests. All of these can be summed up for me in 3-4 people: Iki Hiyori (Noragami), Maka Albarn (Soul Eater), and Black Star/Natsu Dragneel (Soul Eater/Fairy Tail).
I don't know about everyone else, but I really enjoy taking those "which character are you?" "what is your inner animal?", etc... quizzes, and Hiyori is the character I can count on getting all the time and I couldn't be more happy!
Hiyori is one of the most awesome characters ever! She was the first female anime character I saw that was interested in fitness and defense (i.e. martial arts). She is a closet MMA nut; and when she finds herself in situations where 85% of other anime girls run and scream, she just jumps right in to help! When Yato was in front of the bus, and when she unleashed Jungle Savate on the large frog phantom, for a few examples. Considering I've been in situations like that, and that is my first reaction, that really hit home for me. And I am pretty much 100% sure that if I were put in her position, of having increased speed and agility in spirit form, I would pull that stunt of "Oh, I forgot I'm actually a pretty good fighter in this form! I'll handle this!", and need to have my tail pulled out of the fire!
Also like me, she is selfless (ok, so a little bragging on my part? but it is true) and will do anything to help those she cares about. I would always be jumping in to help and protect those I love, however I can. Like Hiyori, I don't know how to hide and stay quiet; I would be out there fighting with my friends! Even when those friends do things she doesn't quite agree with, she will stand by her principles (trying to deal with phantoms on her own), and will stand by her friends and be there for them, to pull them back from the brink when needed. She is also silly and comical, something I pride myself on; and not worried about showing fear, but she simply takes that fear and it makes her stronger. (that will be a recurring line throughout this card, as that probably the most guiding and central tenant in my life, so bear with me).
Hiyori is also not afraid to stand up for herself. When Yato first meets her and hasn't dealt with her request for him to find a way to fix her after 2 weeks, she doesn't just say "well, he'll get to it", she calls him up and dresses him down for not having helped her yet. Even when he kind of gets in her face about it, she stands her ground. That is highly awesome and inspirational to me. It lets me see ways I can stand up for myself without being rude, and not give in to others whims. I'm like her in so many other ways, now I have a way to work towards!
