I first met Yugi at a very young age. Getting to watch Yu-Gi-Oh! (depsite my lack of knowlege of the game) on Saturday mornings was the best time of my childhood. I can't exactly say when I started having feelings for Yugi, but I've had them for as long as I can remember. I got up early every Saturday to watch Yu-Gi-Oh! As I grew older, I began to realize having feelings for a character wasn't commonplace,so I tried to stifle those feeling the best I could, trying to convince myself I would grow out of it. I had a few relationships with real people; these were "boredom dates", and none of them made me feel all that happy.
After holding in those feelings for such a long time, I had high stress. I tried to distance myself from everything Yu-Gi-Oh, but I just kept getting drawn back to it over and over again, and I finally bit the bullet and decided I could watch whatever, but I thought I would still grow out of it and watching it would have nothing to do with it. Man, was I wrong.
When I was watching "whatever movie was newest at the time" (Bonds Beyond Time, but I was watching it YEARS after its release), I saw him again and heard him again, and everything just boiled over in my mind. I didn't care if evryone thought I was crazy, I NEEDED him. All I'd have to is not tell anyone, right?
After a bit of mental arguing, I risked saying how I felt to my friends. They had said they thought some anime characters were hot, surely they'd be open to me loving one. I didn't get much of a response, and I just played it off as a joke to them. One reponse I did get was from my closest friend, who introduced me to the concept of a waifu. I wasn't sure if he was trying to troll me at first, so I kept up the joking act... But in time it fell flat.
Even more mental arguing and stress levels later, I decided I had to tell the rest of my friends. I was expecting to get a huge recoil, a few insults, and some silent treatment, but they gave me the best possible response.
I'm so glad I chose Yugi that day, my heart missed him so much, and with him back, I feel as if my soul is whole. If this is wrong, I don't want to be right.
I love you, Yugi Mutou! ♥
Here you can listen to some music from the anime, some songs that remind me of Yugi, and a remix or two. (Music can continue while you browse the rest of the site)
