2015 Anime Villains Tournament, Round 1, Match 29
Another interesting match-up here…
Tetsuo Shima - Akira vs. Izaya Orihara - Durarara!!
Izaya is the biggest asshole puppetmaster manipulator type character in all of DRRR and he pisses me off. Shizuo is right to feel the sheer hatred as he feels toward Izaya (he probably hates it even more seeing how many fangirls ship the two of them).
Even though Izaya also pisses me off…..I won't lie. He's a damn good villain.
Izaya Orihara gets my vote.
Tetsuo might have become a god, but he was also a jealous punk.
The manipulative Izaya gets my vote for what he has done, and continues to do in the second season.
Voting for Izaya for all of his manipulations.
My vote goes to the manipulating Izaya Orihara.
Tetsuo is part of the reason why I don't like Akira. I cannot stand him.
Izaya on the other hand is a delightfully entertaining master manipulator. My vote goes to the flea.
Tetsuo was just a punk gone stark-raving mad from power
Izaya is a clever son of a gun that, even on the rare occasions when his complex plans and manipulations don't succeed 100%, still manages to come out of everything without a scratch, that one punch from Simon notwithstanding. even when those occasional failures happen, he's able to take advantage of them so that he usually gets something out of it
also, anyone who can pick a fight with Shizuo and yet manage to avoid his wrath for so long, deserves credit
I'm-a let my man Shizuo answer this one:
My vote goes to Tetsuo Shima.
