Are All Anime Characters Right-Handed?

Approximately 10% of people are left-handed. That’s 1 in 10 people! But does this 10% translate over into anime?

Well, it certainly is easier to stick to characters being right-handed to streamline the production process where possible. Because of this it’s likely that characters that we know are left-handed, are left-handed because it’s written into their story.

For example, Ushijima from Haikyuu! is left-handed. In volleyball it’s a major benefit for him and his dad stood up for him against his family to left Ushijima use his left hand instead of being forcefully changed to right-handed.

Akiyama from K-On! is also left-handed, something that is troublesome for many musicians such as Akiyama who’s a bass player. Since basses are set up for right-handed people, you need to seek out a left-handed specific bass. For Akiyama, once she gets a left-handed bass her music potential explodes.

Ed from Fullmetal Alchemist is left-handed because he lost his right arm, which he lost when he failed human transmutation when he was younger.

Sasuke however is suggested to be left-handed because when Hagoromo askes for Sasuke’s dominant hand he holds up his left. He also tends to sign jutsu with his left – however Sasuke uses his sword and other weapons in his right. So perhaps he’s ambidextrous. This seems to be the cause for quite a few characters. And other characters are left-handed but it’s more of a small fun detail fans can notice – such as Zero Two who uses her left hand when learning to write but it’s not a thing that’s brought up.

But who’s your favourite left-handed character? What’s your thoughts on this topic?

I’d Love to Have Anime Cartilage Earrings

I have four helix piercings and I just think it’d be neat if there was more earrings for cartilage piercings. Imagine a Demon Slayer industrial that’s a replica of Tanjiro’s sword, a MHA triple forward helix that has symbols for Deku, Bakugou and Todoroki, a Naruto tragus that is a sharigan.

I would assume the main reason why cartilage earrings for anime don’t really exist is because you want to wear higher quality metals in these piercings, which can be hard to do for small businesses making them.

If anyone has any ideas though on how to make a high quality metal DIY earrings though or knows a place to buy some please let me know!

  7. Akamaru

    Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 11.36.48 pm.png
    And speaking of Akamaru… Okay, so yes, I picked a dog. Only because he’s too good for the world! Look at him, he’s so adorable and I love him!

    And now we interrupt this post for an appreciation collage of Kiba and Akamaru because I’m feeling overwhelmed by cute photos of these two on Google Images as I write this post. These images have blessed my day. They are too cute. I love them so much:
