Over the last week or so I have seen this tag pop up on WordPress. This is the ‘Build a Harem’ tag that was created by Cactus Matt. Initially I haven’t been tagged by anyone to do this, but I thought I would take the initiative anyways and do it! The rules for this tag are as follows (per Matt’s site):
The idea for this tag is that you are an anime character and you’re the central protagonist of a harem anime. What you have to do for this tag is pick five characters (of any gender) and each one has to fit into a different harem character “type”. The characters you pick have to be from existing anime, but they can each be from any anime you want. This is a fantasy harem after all! So it doesn’t matter if in reality these characters would never be in the same show.
The five characters for your harem have to be one of the following character types:
Childhood friend, tom boy/girl, genki girl/boy, loli/shota, trap, tsundere, yandere, kuudere, dandere, etc.
(and obviously characters can be multiple types; like a Tom Boy who is also a Childhood Friend also if there’s a character type I missed feel free to put one in! Also I realize this list of character types is probably female-centric, so if your list is predominantly or entirely male try and find your gendered equivalent!)
This shall be a good time alright! Let’s do this pandas.
Harem choice #1: The Trap – Hideri Kanzaki from Blend S
^Because Hideri is definitely the best boy…I mean girl in Blend S 😉
Harem choice #2: The Dandere – Hifumi Takimoto from New Game
^Hifumi is waifu material…and maaaybe because she’s my favorite girl from New Game ❤
Harem choice #3: The Tsundere – Seishuu Handa from Barakamon
^Cause you’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes then you’re no
You’re in then you’re out
You’re up then you’re down!!! XD
Harem choice #4: The Yandere – Yuno Gasai from Mirai Nikki
^I love crazy bitches. Like…am I going to live today or is Yuno gonna kill me today? Your guess is as good as mine!
Harem choice #5: The Loli – Maria Naruse from The Testament of Sister New Devil
^I mean…how could you not love a perverted succubus?! I know I do 😀
And now for the official ‘Build a Harem’ tag rules:
- Link back to the original post on Anime Q and A so they can check out everyone’s picks!
- Use the ‘Build A Harem’ logo somewhere in the post.
- Make sure to mention the person who nominated you too!
- 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).
- 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!)
- Nominate 5 people to participate in this tag!
I am going to nominate the following bloggers for this tag:
That is going to do it for me this Tuesday! Glad I broke out and did something a little different today. I love writing Top Ten Tuesday post, but sometimes you just need to change it up. I had a lot of fun trying to think of characters I would want in my own personal harem. Of course, my own anime harem would be slightly different then this (because this was based more on character types). Maybe I’ll come up with another post with just my own choices! Let me know if you guys would be interested in seeing a blog on that 😛
