Anime and Smoking
Just inhale and breath, that’s how to smoke a cigarette right? Let’s just say this post came about, because of personal frustrations.. and wanting to find a cigarette to maybe appear cooler. Can’t because smoking is bad for one’s health and because it is so expensive to light up one these days. The price they make you pay is definitely not a productive way to even begin, or continue.
I smoked for a very short period during college, and that habit was quashed. The guilt you have to pick up a cigarette and light it is enormous.
Society and people certainly doesn’t promote it well, I received so much mixed messages. You see public ads all over the place, denouncing the consequences of smoking. Yet in anime, there is still those few characters that smoke and for me. It appears cool, in spite of the health hazard it creates. Arggh!!
These are anime characters I see smoking and to make this needless rant, purposeful on this blog.
Non pictured characters I imagine, would include Kenji from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Yuko from xxxHolic, Faye and Spike from Cowboy Bebop, Ryo from City Hunter among other characters. I wonder if there’s any other anime character that fits the bill of smoking and looking so cool.
