Iconic Decision

I've long wanted an "I can kill you with my brain!" icon, but couldn't find artwork I really wanted to use. Predictably, I recently found 2 pieces:

 

Bereznoff or Zakuro? Zakuro or Bereznoff?

Zakuro is a much better piece of art and far more of a character, but there's something beautifully loopy about using Bereznoff for this purpose ... .

(For those not familiar with Ouran High School Host Club ... Bereznoff looks like a hand puppet because that's exactly what he is! He's not quite as weird and spooky as the sock puppet in Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, but he's not quite the innocent toy one would think, either ... .)

Bereznoff looks more eeeeeeeevil and plotting and diabolical and ready to kill you with his brain!

Zakuro is more "Woo! I'm a badass! Aren't I a badass? Aren't you scared of me? You think i'm a badass, right?" (He and Grimmjow should bond!)

The Young Lady thought Bereznoff'd work better, too.

God, I can just see Zakuro spouting off to Grimmjow, towering above him, and Grimmjow thinking, "Who is this terribly amusing little insect?"

My comparison had a very entertaining little crack scenario going on in my head for a while there.

I wonder, though...would they ever stop going "Rawr! I am a serious business badass!" long enough to actually fight?

I dunno, Zakuro... I mean LORD ZAKURO-SAMA, GOD AMONGST MORTALS ZAKURO-SAMA... is pretty loopy also. ;D

Oh, Zakuro is definitely loopy. But see, he actually could kill someone with his brain - Gojyo had a close call there, remember? Whereas Bereznoff - a hand puppet controlled by pitifully loopy Black Magic Club president Umehito Nekozawa - can't do much of anything, despite the fact that Nekozawa has managed to traumatize some of his more impressionable fellow students with the silly thing. That's why it's funny. Decisions, decisions ... .

Interestingly, I'm having a heck of a problem finding a good picture of Nekozawa with Bereznoff, either from the manga or the anime - but I was able to find a good couple of dozen photos of people cosplaying him. I guess it's just an easy costume, and it allows you to run around going "Bwa-ha-ha!" and threatening people with your creepy hand puppet.

Umm ... River who? Not sure I recognize the reference there.

See, I am Ms. Deficient in Television ... I manage not to watch even things I would like. It's rather sad. So I know what Firefly is but I have never seen it ... . telophase has an icon with picture of the character Abe no Seimei from the movie Onmyoji with that caption, so I'd picked it up from there ... now I feel pretty silly!
