I had a feeling that I would get tagged for this sucker sooner rather than later, thanks to Sam from A Nerdy Perspective (Thanks, Sam. Totally rolling my eyes at you 😉). (If you aren’t following her, what are you doing with your life? Go follow her. She’s brilliant!) For the longest time, I had been trying to avoid it because I knew how difficult it would be to build my harem. I have so many anime characters that I’m unapologetically in love (i.e.: obsessed) with. Wait… I think that was my dirty little secret… Ah, snap… Cat’s out now. *shrugs*
Anyhoo, this is actually my second time being tagged. I received a notification for the first one, but the pingback disappeared off my notifications, and I have no idea which post it was connected to. So, if you are reading this and you were the one that tagged me prior to Sam tagging me, please let me know in the comments so I can credit you!
Okay… so I’m going to confess something about this tag. I may have kinda, sorta cheated… a teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy bit. Like I said, SO MANY CHARACTERS TO LOVE. Is it crazy bad? Nah, not at all. Do I regret it? Heck no. *insert shit-eating grin*
Alrighty, let’s get this shindig going.
- Link back to the original post on Cactus Matt’s blog, Anime Q & A, so that they can track everyone’s picks.
- Use the “Build-A-Harem” Logo somewhere in your post.
- Make sure to properly thank the person(s) who’ve nominated you.
- Choose 5 characters—from any show and of any gender—that would create your ideal harem if you were the main character of a harem anime and explain a little bit as to why they’re your picks (if you want to, that is).
- Make sure each character chose falls into some kind of harem character type, such as: childhood friend, tomboy-ish person, genki person, loli/shota, trap, one of the fourteen -dere types, etc. If that character(s) you’ve chose don’t fall into any specific type group, or if they fall into multiple ones, that’s totally fine too.
- Nominate 5 people to participate in this tag!
I feel like everyone has already completed this tag, so if I tag you and you have done it, feel free to ignore this nomination, unless you want to do it again. 😘
Revy from Black Lagoon instantly popped into my mind. She’s a complete badass and she curses in very much the same ways that I do, although I’d argue that I curse far more than her (in person, as I don’t curse nearly as normal on my blog). Also, she’s super-hot and has a hilarious-as-fuck temper that gives me life.
Genki Person (Over-the-Top Excited & Lively):
Grell Sutcliffe from Black Butler. OMG, they are so fantastic. Anytime I watch the series, and they pop up onto the screen, I know I’m going to be laughing and feeling great. I can only imagine all of the fun theatrics that they would sweep me away in with their liveliness. They are also the perfect representation of Sebastian Michaelis’s fanbase.
Kūdere (Stoic and Composed, Doesn’t Give a Fuck Persona)
THIS WAS SUCH A GODDAMN DIFFICULT ONE TO CHOOSE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT AM I INTO KŪDERE PEOPLE (which I realised after I sat down to create this damn harem, LOL). But after so much whining, I settled on Levi from Attack on Titan. A) He’s close to my age B) SEXY IS SEXIEST. C) BADASS as all hell. D) Did I mention SEXY?
Flirty Instigator Type:
Okay, so I don’t know what the exact title for the type of character is, but it’s the one that’s very flirty and attractive, and super irresistible with his antics. For that one, I chose Jaeha from Yona of the Dawn. He is the ideal person to fit this mould and I just love him so much. He’s very handsome, his flirting is super charming, and he’s a very caring person too.
Natsume from Natsume’s Book of Friends was a no-brainer for me here. He is such a kind and compassionate sweetheart and it didn’t feel right to choose anyone else. He’d be the one to always be supportive and understanding, as well as to make you understand when you’re being childish without treating you like you’re a moron, but just a human trying to the best they can.
Arrogant, I’m-the-Best-and-You’re-Nothing Persona:
So… I added an extra one because not including him seemed offensive to my heart and soul. For this one I had to choose Sesshomaru from Inuyasha. He is probably the ultimate badass who has no fucks to give. I think technically he falls under the kūdere persona type, and even though I chose Levi, I could not leave Sesshomaru-sama out of the mix. Told y’all it was difficult to narrow it down to a single dude/dudette, LOL.
Yay, that’s my harem! This ended up being a fun thing to do, even if it was hard to narrow down the list. There are a bunch of other characters I wish I could have added, like Takumi Fujiwara, Kakashi-sensei, Kiba, Motoko Kusanagi, and more, but if I were allowed to, I’d probably have the biggest fucking harem ever. (>.<)
Thanks so much to Sam and the mystery tagger for tagging me in this! Please, do let me know who you were. I’d love to credit you here.
