    Who Kaname is alike?

    Post by Akaruisama on Sat Dec 04, 2010 7:33 pm

    I have wrote somwhere that Kaname reminds me a little Ret Butler from Gone with the wind. Who resembles he to you? I m asking about personality not look. There can be characters from literature, movies or others anime or mangas.

    Hm, i don't think that Kaname's personality is the same as any character that i have read so far, or may be i have simply forgotten.
    But anyways, there is one character who, according to me is a bit like Kaname. Whenever i think of Sa Sakujun from Saiunkoku Monogatari, i always remember Kaname, don't know why.... Both of them can be same and can't be, lol.......
    Also there is one more character. Saitou Hajime from Hakuouki. He's stiff and always to the point, like Kaname. Saitou's smile is very sweet, like Kaname's smile. Hm, there's also Soldier Blue from Terra E. He's the leader and everyone respects him and is scared of him, just like every vampire respects Kaname.
    Can't think of anymore characters for now!

    M, hard question, I will agree with Chrisalys here that he does not remember me much of another character not even in literature, of course that's a success, he is unique. But his story (I hope not the end of it certainly) doesn't it remind you (or have slight similarities) with Dracula where Jonny Depp was starring (Copola is the director if I remember well..)...

    Somehow...Na..LOL

    yes, there are many similarities with the "on screen" Dracula of Coppola's movie ( actually it was Gary Oldman the one who played Dracula- I adore the movie, I love Gary Oldman, but if Johnny Depp had played Dracula, I think my fragile human heart would broke from happiness or I 'd just die from intense nosebleed!!! drawling )
    Dracula end Kaname have spent almost the whole of their lives alone....They both fought for a good cause in the beginning (or at least in Dracula's case he BELIEVED that what he did was good -fighting as a Cristian against Muslims)
    Spoiler:
    I'm not fond of any kind of wars and especially I'm totally against religious wars
    but in both cases it ended badly...
    Dracula lost his beloved wife Elissabeta and spent eternity alone until he found her re-carnation, whereas Kaname had only seen a glimpse of Yuuki as a vision of the future and spent the rest thousands years sleeping, waiting subconsciously for Yuuki to come...

    @ Αnna you are right, that was Gary Oldman, I confused him with Depp (must have been the black long hair lOL)..plus another similarity they both did everything possible to get the woman they love (now Dracula was worst but anyway) and get her back to their arms.

    Now about the glimpse of Yuuki as a vision of the future... sSig_DOH I have to confess I am still speechless....


    Poor count Dracula by the way that was a tragic love story indeed...:too much cry:

    Hopefully ours will have a happy ending wub

    hmmmm......I'm not sure about Mr Darcy....because in the beginning he was a little too arrogant!!! (every time I remember the way he proposed to her- you know the "you're poor and lower class than me and not good for me but what the heck, I'll marry you" lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! ) But then he let his selfishness subside and became very cute!! wub wub wub

    So that's why I think in the beggining he didn't have much in common with Kaname because Kaname is like a puppy in 2 legs every time he sees Yuuki!! lol! lol! lol!

    Yes Mr. Darsy was a bit arrogant, I agree with you Anna...

    @ Dalia, phantom of the opera? LOL now you reminded me a fan made video they did for Yume (Yuuki-Kaname) with the phantom of the opera. Perhaps this sort of hidden behind the curtain-girl being protected by a mysterious man reminded them of it....

    I do not remember if we have posted it though...here it is...

    Of course Darcy was arrogant, but he also was strong, reasonable, proud, secretive, solitary, self-confident and protective. I like him because he is true men like Kaname.

    I have read Emily of New Moon of L.M. Mongomery lately. I think Dean Priest from that book resembles Kaname a little. He is secretive, protective, he sees her love towards someone else. What do you think?

    Kaname is like Lelouch in Code Geass who can do whatever for his sister.. I like kaname's character, he is my fav in all kind of fiction..there is something for us readers/watchers can see in him.

    Zero is like Heero Yuy in Gundam Wing..lol the one who point the gun to the girl and said that "I will kill you Relena (yuuki) when I see you" but instead of that "I will protect you" hahahah.. I don't hate Zero but I just don't think he suits or deserves Yuuki..Kaname is made for Yuuki..

    Thanks, I forgot totally about this topic sLo_BigBearHug
    Kaname is also like Erast Pietrowicz Fandorin from serie of books written by russian novelist Boris Akunin.
    He is handsome, deeply unhappy, very wise and smart. But he hasn't found his true love...

    I found it! Seiran from Saiunkoku Monogatari is like Kaname! He is wise, overprotective, he hides his steps in the shadow, he can be also ruthless and cruel. As a one character said: he can use darkness and lightness for achieving his own goals- exactly like Kaname.
    What do you think?
    If you have not seen this anime, I can recommend it!

    I always thought that Kaname really resembles Louis from Anne Rice's novels. I agree that he's also like the Phantom of the Opera cheers

    I have a thing for male characters who have a lot of internal conflict with themselves XD Every time I read something with a character like that, I get stuck on them like superglue!! rofl rofl

    Kaname is also one of my favorite fictional characters of all time. Intelligent, mysterious, passionate, & dangerous, and of course, utterly gorgeous, I actually think he's very unique. Yes, he's a vampire & he pines for his love, Yuki...but his coolness is not "detached"like how other vampires are often portrayed & his dangerous power isn't portrayed as an uncontrollable & overwhelming bloodlust either. He's very caring & romantic towards Yuki, very shrewd, & he's even portrayed as having a sense of playful humor, which I like a lot. In fact, I find him more attractive than any human man out there! There are times when Takeshi Kaneshiro, especially when his hair is longer, exudes the aura of Kaname in my opinion.

    *sigh* You describe him so exquisitely sLo_BigBearHug
    You're right, he's just the right amount of everything you'd want in a character- like the poridge from Goldie Locks and the Three Bears.. Juuust right

    Kaname somehow resembles Edward Cullen from Twilight.. You know the gentle, caring, over-protective type and also both of them spent a long time alone...

    and I don't think Kaname resembles Mr. Darcy at all.. Darcy was one arrogant guy! Always disagreeing with anything and everything. He even had a reputation for being very insensitive and a j.erk (though that too was something I loved about him xD).. Kaname isn't like that..

    Kaname also resembles Yuuki Sohma from fruits basket... you know since both of them were all princely and lonely and gentle and stuff..

    I don't think Kaname resembles Cullen even a little. He is more mature, more wise, more complicated than Edward who is exactly emo type.
    Maybe Yuuki is more similar to Bella- they are both so clumsy...

    Yes that´s true Edward Culles seems to be so week in contrast to Kaname, I don´t think that he has the same strong will he wouldn´t do the same that Kaname would do to fulfill something important. Kaname is willing to do everything to care for Yuuki, I think that makes him very strong and mature ( good word Akaruisama)

    Well I admit that kaname is way better than Mr. darcy, I liked him in Pride and Prejeduce but he is not like Kaname at all.

    Well somehow I don´t find someone who really resembles Kaname, you mentioned some people who really have something in common with him but not everything and sometimes the differences are too big to compare them in my eyes, kaname is unique ans I like him for that wub

    *applause* *bow* Awesome description! I couldn’t have said it better aiko! sLo_BigBearHug

    For me there is no one who can be compared with Kaname … nor fictional character neither a real human being!

    Kaname is a creation of a woman’s mind (her best one IMO)… so naturally can totally mesmerize and capture women’s’ heart in an absolute way!

    And I’ll use Hino’s words … “Almighty Kaname” and “Mr. perfect Kaname-sama” … there, she has told everything …





    "... I want to fall down with you to the very farthest depths ... taint me too Kaname"
