First I must thank Merlin for tagging me. If you been reading this blog you’ll know that I have disdain for the harem genre. However, I don’t need to be that uptight about, this tag seems interesting. Reading other tags from Cactus Matt over at Anime Q & A (the creator of the tag), Karandi James at 100wordanime and Scott over at mechanicalanimereviews, I decided to take Karandi’s “amended” version, that kinda ignores the “character types.” I’m mostly doing so because I find it to limiting and I’m lazy. That said characters that I choose will inevitable fall into one of the categories anyway. First the rules:
The ‘Build A Harem’ Tag Rules:
1)Link back to the original post on Anime Q and A so they can check out everyone’s picks!
2)Use the ‘Build A Harem’ logo somewhere in the post.
3)Make sure to mention the person who nominated you too!
4)Pick 5 Anime Characters (any show & any gender) that would be in your ideal harem if you were the main character of a harem anime, explain a little bit as to why they are your picks (if you want).
5)Make sure each character you pick falls into some of the following harem character types: Childhood friend, tom boy/girl, genki girl/boy, loli/shota, trap, tsundere, yandere, kuudere, dandere, etc. (If there’s a character you’ve picked that doesn’t specifically fall into one of these types or falls into multiple types that’s fine too!)
6)Nominate 5 people to participate in this tag!
18 is a cool and confident woman, she has a sarcastic sense of humor that I love. She was asked once by the World Tournament announcer “if her real name is legitimately “No. 18”, to which she responds “My father was pretty dull.” 18 is very protective of her family and friends. She’s also incredibly powerful, capable of overpowering a typical Super Saiyan. Of course she possess infinite energy supply and she ages at a much slower rate. She also only requires water, which it think is cool.
Mako has a lot energy, meaning she’s hyperactive. A lot of people might find her tiring but I like her. Weirdly, Mako is profoundly lazy. She’s fearless, willing to face major threats. When she was hard working when she was head of the “Fight Club.” Her biggest failing is her greed, due to being impoverish. That said she’s also hilarious.
Unlike Mako, who’s loud and energetic, Nico is quite and reserve. She manages to remain calm even in the most dire situations. She like pointing out morbid facts, scaring her crew mates. Nico refuses to engage in anything that is embarrassing. Robin is often seen smiling, even in dangerous situation. Nico doesn’t play when it comes to battle, she’s brutal, willing to break the necks or spinal cords of her enemies.
Usagi Tsukino or Serena Tsukino (Sailor Moon)
I’ve always loved Serena. Sailor Moon was one of the first anime I watched as a child, so I have a soft spot for her. Serena is kinda a lazy, air head. She doesn’t study at school, or really apply herself. She’s also juvenile relative to her peers. Serena also has a tendency to whine and cry we she doesn’t get her way. I find her personality funny, she’s goofy and clumsy. Despite all this Serena will fight hard for those she loves.
Yoruichi is simply a bad ass. She’s highly intelligent, having imminence knowledge of the world she lives in. Even though she’s a noble, she’s not as obnoxious as other nobles. She doesn’t require being called with honorifics. Yoruichi has a well rounded personality, she’s mature and calm but can be relaxed and playful. She enjoys teasing others. She’s is very powerful fighter, she is the most proficient users of Hohō. and her Shunko, is the “highest form of Hakuda technique.” You can never go wrong with a strong woman right.
