how agressively opposed are you to having a male word? like...raging hormonal homosexual...
he can be in complete denial, but i'd be great for slap-stick-humor (pun intended)
That could be quite funny! Like jilorbb said, though, that'd probably be the only one. I wouldn't mind seeing such a character around, as long as he's mostly there for comedy and not sex with my character. If he does find himself a partner, it'll have to be someone else!
That's something I forgot to say before, by the way. Unlike in your typical harem romance shows, the Words' lives don't have
to revolve entirely around the main character's. If one was to get romantically involved with another male character, or if there was, say, a lesbian couple, that would get my seal of approval.
The main advantage of that would be that it would be possible, that way, to keep the action moving without having everyone to wait on my posts! I'm usually pretty quick and have lots of free time, but I don't think I could handle that much pressure.
I do have one possible suggestion: perhaps it doesn't always happen? That way he could continue to use the dictionary normally (for school reports and such) and only on occasion (randomly) does it happen on its own - or when he's actively trying to do it as well.
I'm thinking that if this book ended up always shooting out a word-girl, then your typical anime "normal" guy might want to just not use it after a while.
You're right! It probably shouldn't trigger all the time, precisely for that reason. Another thing I could add to what I wrote above, too: Kenji doesn't know much at all about his power, so he could very well try to get a Word and wind up with another one on the same page, or try to go for a specific result, only to see that the Word manifests herself as a different definition from the one he expected.
This is actually what I had in mind for Ty Dao, by the way. With "obscenity", Kenji would try to pull out a sex bomb, only to wind up with an F-bomb.
...with a minor in sex bomb, yes.
