2016 MEN of MANLINESS - Round 3: Dutch vs. Shizuo
Dutch from Black Lagoon vs. Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara!!
Don't forget to post your vote below in case of ties!
The strongest man in Ikebukuro
The strongest man of them all who hates violence, yet keeps getting pulled in to violent situations, usually by the antagonist Izaya.
While at first he seems to be a fairly one note character (Extremely strong, short temper, hates one of our lead characters), he's actually a lot more complex then that and a lot less of a brute then his first scene makes him appear to be.
(Although you have to admit, even when looking like a brute, punching a guy in the face so hard that he flies out of his clothes and down the street is pretty darned cool)
Shizuo later is revealed to hate violence and tries to avoid it when he can. He is also extremely loyal, as shown by his relationship with his brother, Celty and a few other characters throughout the show. While he does have an (understandably) short fuse, he has shown that he can be reasoned with even after being attacked, as shown by his relationship with Akane and Varona. He isn't one to make people guilty by association either, as shown by his indifferent nature to Izaya's sisters.
And to top it all off.
The guy. Is. AWESOME.
He deflects a freaking CRANE!
He can kick cars like a soccer ball!
Even as a child, he was flinging around fridges.
Let's go Shizuo!
Vote to Shizou
Posted vote goes to Dutch.
I have to flip a coin for this one…...
Heads, so my vote goes to Dutch.
Shizuo may be super-strong, but anyone who can keep a loose-cannon like Revy in check earns points in my book.
Vote goes to Dutch.
I'm voting for Shizuo.
Vote to Shizuo Heiwajima - Durarara!!
Shizuo gets my vote
Geez. I think I'm gonna have to resort to coin flip for this one.
Tails, so vote goes to Shizuo.
Since Dutch is technically a villain, Shizuo might get my vote if he knew how to keep a cooler head. But when it comes to Izaya, it's his one big weakness.
My vote goes Dutch.
Dutch - Black Lagoon
Have to flip a coin for this one.
Heads, so Dutch it is.
