Why Seto and Anzu – Azurite’s View

Forgive me for this being a bit long… but hey, I’m the site owner. Don’t I get some leeway? ^_^;

In Yu-Gi-Oh, romance isn’t a focal point– in fact, since the series was originally “shonen,” or aimed towards younger boys, it centers more on action than romance. However, that doesn’t stop fangirls such as myself from theorizing… The fact of the matter is, in the Yu-Gi-Oh fandom, there are many pairings– but few of them are canon. Some of the pairings considered “canon,” or actually PLAUSIBLE in the series include Yuugi (Yugi) and Anzu (Téa), Yami and Anzu, Jounouchi (Joey) and Mai, and…???

Seto Kaiba is considered ruthless, callous, but loyal to a fault. He’s stubborn, reticent, and on more than one count, a bit crazy. But he’s had a painful past, and he leans on Duel Monsters as something he can truly be the best at. That is, until small Yuugi Mutou (Yugi Moto) came along and beat him. His pride wounded, Kaiba set out to defeat Yuugi through any means possible. In the manga (comic book) he was much more sadistic, taking extreme measures to defeat Yuugi and teach him the same humiliation he experienced. However, in the anime, the kidnapping of his brother prevents Kaiba’s actions from becoming too drastic, and so he sets out to save his brother.

Anzu Mazaki is often dubbed the “cheerleader” of Yuugi’s group– the group consisting of Yuugi, Jounouchi, and Honda. Recent additions to the group include Shizuka Jounouchi (Serenity Wheeler), Ryuuji Otogi (Duke Devlin), and Mai Kujaku (Mai Valentine). Despite being the only girl in the group (until Mai and Shizuka “joined”), Anzu still gets along with the guys perfectly– probably because she’s a bit of a tomboy. Originally, Jounouchi and Honda liked to tease Yuugi, and, being his friend from elementary school, Anzu always stood up for him. When the boys finally become friends, Anzu acts as a peacemaker of sorts between them all– caring for each one of them despite their differences. She’s incredibly
loyal, and pretty stubborn in her own right; and though she’s not a seasoned duelist as Kaiba, Yuugi, and Jounouchi are, she still plays– and still packs a punch. She’s also the only person to stand up to Seto Kaiba’s own brand of bull-headedness; at Duelist Kingdom, it was she who chewed him out about the value of life.

While it would definitely take some doing, fangirls (and guys!) around the world recognize that Seto Kaiba and Anzu Mazaki would make one heck of a couple. If she’s fire; he’s ice. If he’s dark, she’s light. They complement and contrast each other in many ways, and, as a bonus, he doesn’t have a split personality like some other “heroes” we know…

Why Seto and Anzu – Mamono’s View

Well, I like Anzu because of her never give up attitude, and the way she’s always cheering people on; there aren’t many people like that in the world today. I like Seto… well, aside from the obvious reasons, because of his steadfast resolve and his all-around frigid atmosphere. I think it’s wicked! So yeah, I think the two make an uber-cute couple; in a way, they watch out for each other, you know?

Why Seto and Anzu – Utena-chan’s View

They balance each other even if they don’t realize it. I think she could break those walls he built around himself and he would protect her far better than the others.

Why Seto and Anzu – Chaos Val’s View

Both are strong, brave, loyal, and deeply committed to the people they care about. Plus, Anzu is the only person who is truly Seto’s equal – personality and maturity-wise.

Because who says I can’t?

Why Seto and Anzu – Lin Kuruzu’s View

It’s the ‘opposites attract” thing. Anzu is so free-spirited like fire, while Kaiba’s the cold-hearted ice block. =P

Also because the very first Yu-Gi-Oh episode that I saw was the last part of Kaiba and Yugi’s duel in Duelist Kingdom– the one where Kaiba was on the edge of the tower and Anzu is trying to stop Yugi from attacking… and she gave Kaiba that speech. Since then, I’ve been full 100% S x A!

I just really like how many fic writers try to put these two together. My favorites would be the ones where Anzu has a dark secret, Seto finds out, he helps Anzu, then Mokuba gets them closer together… that kind of thing.

Also they are like kindred spirits; Kaiba learns from Anzu; Anzu learns from Kaiba, whatever that may be… but overall, I just wuv them!

It’s the contrast thing, like what Azurite says. In a way they kind of blend in with each other, despite that their personalities are the exact opposite. If Seto’s ready to fly off the handle,
Téa can cool him off. If Téa’s smart enough, she can use her own wit to gradually change his arrogant self back to the person he was before Gozaburo changed him. Even though they’re practically non-canon, there’s still HOPE! They do look cute together…much better than Yugi/Anzu, in my opinion. GO S/A!

The pairing really appeals to me because they….they just fit so well together. I mean, Anzu is the opposite of Kaiba, but it is said that opposites attract. Kaiba’s life is filled up w/ work and talking to clients and running his company, and it takes over his life. If they had the chance to be together, Anzu would definitely show him that there is much more to life
than what he is used to, and he would actually act his age and have fun and not be burdened by his responsibilities 24/7.
