View Full Version : Why does Tooya dress so gay?
05-12-2001, 12:24 PM
When I first started watching Ayashi No Ceres, I was immediately disturbed by the fact that Tooya was wearing some sort of tank top thing and flaunting his abs... If I tried to wear something like this I would immediately be beaten to a pulp... Not that I ever would...
I was actually hoping those guys beating on Aki in episode 5 with give Tooya a good beating too for dressing like an idiot... Unfortunately, he seems to be pretty tough, which is probably why he has no fashion sense... Everyone is afraid to tell him that he looks like an idiot...
He looks like he belongs in some sort of gay bar...

Hmm, he's a bishounen, they wear extravaguant stuff... Maybe it looks kind of gay, but Touya still looks _really_ fine... XD~~~~
A bishounen wearing jeans and 'I'm with stupid' shirt wouldn't be as special, you know... *blink*

well Yuuhi's my fav. anyway....sooooo ......^_~
...umm...but more on a serious note...yeah it does look slightly weird but like Usagi^.^ said, he's bishounen after all.
if you've got it, flaunt it....errr...right? :lol:

It's one of the reasons I don't like touya very much... other than the poor character development. (kiss a girl on the first meet? and you were instructed to kill her? WHAT?!)
Anyhoo, Ms. Watase probably tried to hard to make him 'bishounen....' She should've stuck to the simplified versions like Tamahome, Yuuki and Hotohori. Those guys didn't have to dress extravagantly to capture a girl's heart but... well, Touya? he forcibly or rather seems to have a big sign board that says 'i'm bishounen, YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH ME.'
Well she failed. It would be nice to grit touya's cute little face into aspalt.

:lol: I thought I was the only one who didn't like Touya much...something about him just REALLY gets on my nerves...

He dresses like that so that it's easier to do yaoi fanart of him.

Palchan, you hit the nail right on the head ;)
07-12-2001, 04:46 PM
easy question, cos he's bishounen (someone already answer that) and it's a shoujo anime, guys are like that so girls can drool over them, doesn't mean they are gay or anything :o

His style of dress reminds me of Youji from Weiß Kreuz... and they both have legions of drooling fangirls... I don't like either of them, though -_-

Ok I admit that a tank top is not nice .... but darn he's hot ... when he wears his uniform .... XD~~~~~~ ...... and with the wings at the end ..... XD~~~~~~

When you look at Tooya, your first thought should be, "GACK~! It's a Weiß Kruez escapee! Bad fashion sense and all!"
In the manga, he quickly ditches that outfit, thank Gackt, but I do have to say it's really Yohji-esque. I think Watase-sensei was on a WK kick when she made his designs.
As far as Tooya in general, I think his lack of memory, lack of people skills, and lack of humanity all together should help get him a little slack, but he's just one of those stoic characters that many people don't like. What can you say? I really liked Alec myself, and dear Shuro. Too bad neither of them got much anime screentime.

Pal-DEAR, you so wish to be a bishonen. And yet you got away when someone mentions yaoi.
Pal-dear + bishonen = BAD, under-rated yaoi doujinshi Yaoi

What's that miko? You wish me to be bishounen? Awwww, sorry miko. :P ^_~
*sees miko running to her yaoi* ^^

You sooo wish my dear

the first thing i thought when i saw Tooya was "why on earth did he steal Yohji's shirt!?"
people already said stuff about Weiss, but i think it's true!
i don't think all bishounen should be able to use their lack of fashion sense on being bishounen!

Yohji? I think Tooya just screams AYA/RAN! The red hair, the stoic mysteriousness, the bad fashion sense, the devotion to one woman, the sword-like weapon. I'm telling ya, Tooya is Aya! (Makes the Aya and Aya relationship interesting...)

*grins* Toya's yummy
Seriously though I like his outfits. But I think his personality affects how people look at him. In the manga at least he smiles, but after Fushigi Yugi, Watase's poor character development was a shock. Probably to keep the aire of mystery, but jeez, he still could have had personality!
Whatever though, I love the outfit with the short tank and jacket, and you cant forget the cute sunglasses.:p

I so wish he was gay. But I guess he's too sexy for that.
