So season 2 just started up and I'm more excited than ever. Didn't get a chance to buy the green Tekkadan jacket like I want but I got Orga and Mikazuki on pre-order from amiami. Cause I can't get Orga without Mikazuki the same way I can't have Worick without Nicholas. So I've been really into this Gundam series lately, and at work I was contemplating yaoi pairings for Orga, since he's the only main male character who openly states that he doesn't care about women (and as Eugene states, cause he's never been with one). I mean, to me, Orga doesn't seem openly gay, he feels more like he's awkward and uncomfortable around women who aren't business partners with Tekkadan. He gets along with Kudelia, and Naze Turbine's harem of wives. Remember Orga plainly states that the CGS officers "used them for sexual relief", that's about as kid friendly as you can get while not trying but directly implying RAPE. I think due to this, (the boys must have gotten used to it, but as far as we know, never had sex with one another) Orga may feel uncomfortable or ashamed to consider women romantically. I believe that's what his problem is. I fear that Orga may isolate himself from the other members of Tekkadan and will do something stupid and reckless (the way Biscuit feared he would). So thinking about his relationships with his male friends, I came to a conclusion on whether Orga would be a seme or uke.
- Orga Itsuka x Akihiro Atland: Orga-seme, Akihiro-uke. Akihiro always put up this tough front with his constant reminding Orga and Mikazuki that he was Human Debris (a really nice way of calling him trash) and how they shouldn't associate with him often. Orga always countered this by not caring about the label and treating Akihiro no differently. I think in part Akihiro did this to push them away, to see if they were being honest about their feelings not being dependent on the label that was put on him. When he finally realize that Orga is sincere in this, Akihiro feels greatly relieved and appreciated. Akihiro is a big guy, but he looks like he'd be a very submissive and almost loving bottom for Orga.
- Orga x Eugene Seven Stark (first off, does anyone else feel like this is a weird GOT reference? Or Iron-Man?): Orga-seme, Eugene-uke. We've read their type in plenty of yaoi. Eugene clashed a lot with Orga due to jealousy. Orga is a lot more dominant in their relationship. Their relationship seems like rather standard yaoi.
- Orga x Mikazuki, Orga-seme, Mikazuki-uke. This is the nature of their relationship. Orga leads, Mikazuki follows. Mikazuki is down for anything, I really like his aloof-devil-may-care attitude. If Orga wanted to fuck him, Mikazuki probably wouldn't question him, he'd just accept it like he does with all of Orga's decisions. In this regard, Orga really fucking needed Biscuit. I really don't ship their pairings, they really seem like brothers to me rather than could be lovers. I feel the same about Orga and Naze too. In a way their relationship is a lot like Griffith (Orga) and Guts (Mikazuki) from Berserk. Guts (once upon a time) and Mikazuki will kill anyone to make Griffith and Orga's dream come true. Deadly combos right there. I read a fan response on tumblr where they make the observation on how Orga and Mikazuki's relationship is fucked up but they didn't elaborate on the reasons. I speculate its because Orga will tell Mika to kill someone and he simply will, no questions asked, no hesitation, no remorse, no guilt, from either of them.
- Orga x Mcgillis Fareed: Orga-uke, Mcgillis-seme. I ship these two so much right now. Orga and Mcgillis are almost the same character, they have a lot in common. Mcgillis is a bastard and therefore looked down upon in his society, Orga is an orphan for Mars, still looked down upon in his society. They are both committed to their tasks and are willing to do almost anything to see it done. Except Mcgillis is willing to sacrifice his friends Galileo and Carta, and even kill his own blood (his father) to achieve his goal. Orga will not go that far (yet, I believe given the right circumstances and provocation, he can and will) to sacrifice anyone in Tekkadan because everything he does is for them and without them, his end goal is meaningless. So Mcgillis strikes me as being the more dominant of the two, the more aggressive when it comes to what he wants. This will make him seme.
I want to write more on Berserk though, reading the manga, I feel like I understand their characters a lot more from a psychological standpoint. For now I will meditate on the true meaning or Orga and Mikazuki's superiorxsubordinate relationship. Ciao.
