There is a new tag in town and its name is ‘Build a Harem’. Yes boys and girls, and everyone else, Cactus Matt over at Anime QandA is the genius behind this nice tag. Oh, and nice it is indeed. A world full of pleasant 2D boys and girls obeying your every demand, spoiling you rotten, massaging your feet whenever you say so (which would be never in my case because, you know, I really don’t like feet in any way but still, you might love feet. And hey, if that’s you fetish they can suck on your toes maybe.) I’m very happy to be chosen by the founder of this awesome tag, so very much thank you Matt! You are awesome, but I think you already know that. 😎
Well, there are always rules to these kind of things. What would the world be without rules really. Total chaos probably. We can’t have that now can we. So, thus:
- Link back to the original post on Anime QandA 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!
Onwards we go… Let’s have some fun with my little darlings, shall we.
(Let me first say, I have already broken the rules, I have six peeps in my harem. Not because I needed the sixth boy but because I wanted my bestie on the list. I didn’t count properly so before I realized it I had done six and it’s a shame to let hard work go to waste, right? Anyway, let’s get on with it.)
1. Best friend
This is a tricky one… Nah, I am kidding. There is only one person I would die to have close to me. I would have so much fun with this awesome (strawberry) blonde. Only the dialect alone makes me fold over and cry from laughing. She’s rude, have the most lewd humor and pulls off the worst sexual comments onto whoever, no matter where they are. I feel a connection. She’s also a bit stupid but she is loyal to her boss, as the perfect delinquent and gang member she is. I would feel safe having her guard my feet (but she can’t suck on my toes!).

I’ve been thinking a lot about the definition of a tom girl. If you google it there is a lot of opinions on the definition and most seems to come down to it being a boy who dresses like a girl (aka a trap) and loves doing girly stuff like shopping for clothes (yeah, because no boy has ever liked that) and I guess play with dolls. Well, my view on tom girls is not like that. My tom girl is a boy who is a bit feminine to the touch. He’s got a soft touch in his ways to act. He’s gentle and kind. His looks are very feminine but unless he is dressed in a wedding dress (which actually happens) you won’t really mistake him for a girl. He wants to be a mangaka, but sucks at drawning, and his favorite anime is about a good magical girl. He’s a cute boy and I would love to have him teach me all about cute magical girls. He is probably the perfect guy to giggle with while feeding him chocolates and have a glass of wine with.

3. Genki boy
It’s all about energy, right? I know a lot of energetic boys but I am not sure I want any of them in my harem. It seem so exhausting. I need some peace and quiet. Although, I have my faithful friend, she can probably shoo them away if they get too hard to handle. Yeah, so, dynamo boy then, he is probably born on a pile of sugar, breastfed on coffee and red bull. See, if you aren’t exhausted yet I don’t know what to say. Anyway, he’s kind and means well. Also, he’s hot. And he loves bugs; the biggest stag beetle he ever caught was 8 cm. Yeah, that is his hobby. Not sure yet if he fits in this harem but I can see how fun he can be and also, eye candy. He is after all a highly well trained swimmer.

Oh boy, this was tough. I hear shota and I automatically think Pico. I also automatically think Pico when I hear trap so I am in a dilemma here; where should I put him? Nowhere, is my compromise. Sorry, Pico baby, I will save you for the day when I can expand my harem. So, who is my sweet shota then? Well, my shota is for me to cuddle with. Cuddle, snuggle and have ice cream with. But, he should also be fun to have around. Energy and laughter is something this little guy has a lot of.
There is one fabulous guy who I so much envy. He has such an amazing fashion sense and the hair is to die for. Now, there is a person I am gonna drink the rest of the bottle of wine with when Izumi has gone to bed. I believe this is a most entertaining person who would give so much to my little harem. He can also teach Yuka a thing or two about fashion. I love him with all my heart.

6. Kuudere boy
I am gonna apologize straight away. I never meant for this to become what it turned into; a harem filled with swimmers. I can’t help it though, this man is the man of my (current) dreams. He haunts me with his sad, serious eyes and his massive muscles. He’s cold, cynical and blunt and all I want is to give him a blo… yeah, you get the idea. Somewhere inside that cold outer shell is a caring and loving boy and I know he will stay by my side when the rest of my harem boys and girl have moved on to better and different places. And truth be told, all I need is my butterfly.

Oh, wouldn’t it be nice to have a harem of your own? I nominate thee:
It’s of course not mandatory but it would be fun to see what you guys come up with. Also, it is a new tag but hey, no pressure. 😎 *humming* under pressure, dumdumdum dumdumdumdum 🎶
