what is a fanlisting?
"A fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join." -- TFL.org
Simply enough, this is a fanlisting for Okita Sougo! X)
Name: Okita Sougo
Based off of: Okita Souji
Seiyuu: Suzumura Kenichi
Caution: certain spoilers ahead
Sougo is a character from Hideaki Sorachi's anime and manga series Gintama. To start off, he IS indeed based off of the actual Okita Souji of the Shinsengumi, but Sougo also happens to be in the Shinsengumi as well. A strange one indeed. His hobbies include sporting on his trademark red sleepmask while pretending to sleep (or maybe it's for real?). He likes
planning out Hijikata Toushirou's death torturing the heck out of his superior Hijikata Toushirou to the point that's it's questionable whether he's just joking around or actually being series. As the strongest in the Shinsengumi, he has a tendency to commit random acts of violence (while keeping on an innocent face) to Hijikata especially. His rival would have to be Kagura of the Yorozuya group, as they equal in strength and in violence... *dry laughs*
In the manga, Sougo's official hair color is a light brown, his eyes are a grey color, and his sleepmask is red. It goes the same for the anime as well, except his eyes are brown. The Shinsengumi uniforms also happen to be different: in the manga, the lining is silver/white while in the anime, the lining is gold/yellow. (It has been confirmed somewhere that his actual age in the series is nineteen, but I can wait until I see it for myself. XD)
personal thoughts & misc.
Sougo just happens to be my favorite character of Gintama! (Plus it doesn't help that Okita Souji is my favorite of the Shinsengumi and I'm a HUGE Okita fan, period. xD) Personally, I expected Sougo to be blonde and his mask to be orange, and while others had slightly different opinions about it, I don't think any of us were really expecting him to have brown hair and a red mask. *sighs* But I think I'm getting use to the current Sougo~ [/endrant]
Don't ask where "choke hold" came from, I thought it was very fitting, since it happens to be another word for "sadism" (or so it said at Thesaurus.com). And yes, as me being a big HijiOki fan, I just happened to recall the anime episode where when after Hijikata was vomited on, instead of restraining Hijikata for pummeling the drunkard, he puts his hands around Hijikata's neck and clutches tight. XD (I must say, Sougo's facial expression was priceless there~)
