Check-in Station: DKJ’s annual Harem Hall-of-Fame Induction 2013
I made a post several years ago that I very regrettably never followed up. I think most guys (and some women) have their list of favorite hotties. Their mental list of of people they find most attractive. And it never perfectly corresponds to anyone else’s list. In a funny way, I believe it’s one of the more personal things you can express, when you take that list and put it to paper with pen. Or in the case of a blogger, take your idea from keystrokes to ones and zeros on your screen. I did so in that previous post, and I’m going to do it again this time. This is the list of my nominees for my Harem Hall-of-Fame.
All of this will be fair and balanced, and by that I mean that I’m going to fairly weigh all my prejudices and preferences in judgement of these animated women, and balance their assets buxom attributes in my metaphorical hands. But when this is all said and done, I will appreciate any input I can get.
The last winner and first winner was Ayane Yana from Kimi ni Todoke, a series that I have shamefully not finished, yet. Maybe I’m just trying to savour my encounters with her on-screen? Aside from that nonsense, I chose her because not only did she strike me as a subtle and beautiful design, but she had real character. She would stand up for herself, and for her friends. But it’s never in a grand standing way, she’s just not afraid if you see it. And she does seem like someone I could get used to talking to, once I got over the intimidation factor. She’s a great female overall. I’d say it’s almost strange how I run a rather pervy blog, and I ended up picking the character who probably least benefitted from a focus on female physical attributes. Perhaps you could call her the classy choice.
Now, on to the nominees.
Muginami from Rinne no Lagrange: some people may probably already know that I think the show Muginami comes from is bad. I mean just plain bad. But I’m a finicky mecha fan, can you blame me? Well, this isn’t about the show anyway. Hence why she’s even on this list. There are times when positive, bubbly personalities can be annoying, and sometimes bubbly personalities can be comforting and easy to open up to. When I first saw Muginami, I thought she was just an idiot. And that’s probably a bad preconception. I’m not saying she’s bright, but she is a nice girl. She also has a nice sense of style. And her feminine attributes “shine” more brightly in her flight outfit than any of the other girls. Especially that stuck up pig, Lan. Woof? More like oink-oink.
Leonmitchelli from Dog Days: I can speak less to her beauty, than I can to her strength. She’s one of those females that can easily hang with the guys. And I don’t just mean because she’s a super strong warrior, either. Her blood boils for action and excitement, and most of all a challenge. The catgirl design is something that has been done to death in anime, so it says something that her design is unique enough to not look too garrish while attempting to not be generic. The Japanese have a way of dressing up very plain outfits into spectacular ones. The fact that at its core, Leonmichelli’s outfit is basically a tight pair of shorts and a frilly blouse that perfectly shows off and supports her breasts is an impressive accomplishment. She’s an excellent example of a character that knows how to be hot and strong.
Chris Yukine from Symphogear: she is a ridiculous as hell woman, from a ridiculous as hell show. And she’s a good example of how crazy can be hot. Unlike her boss, who was just some slut grabbing for power in the least amount of clothing she could manage. Chris was a character who believed she was doing right, and rebelling against a world that scorned her. Somehow this chick who was basically a cross between a magical girl, a Patriot missile armament and C-130 Galaxy, and fired all those weapons while singing heavy metal-like songs, became a bit of a moe character. You just wanted to give the poor abused girl a hug. Well you did until she transformed, started screaming and firing everywhere. Then she was just hot.
Hitagi Senjougahara from Bakemonogatari/Nisemonogatari: now this may be a tough pick, simply because she’s so beautiful and so iconic a character already that claiming she’s part of my harem may just elicit death threats. Let’s get the obvious out of the way. Senjougahara is beautiful. Amazingly beautiful. Stunningly beautiful. Even beautiful enough to be called scary. And even after she has her affliction at the hands of a demon crab removed from her, she’s still a scary personality. But none of that matters next to the amazing combination of traits she has. She’s stacked with intelligent, charisma, common sense and brutal talent for sniffing out bullsh*t. I believe any man would look at her and believe that only the greatest of men could hold on to her.
Suruga Kanbaru from Bakemonogatari/Nisemonogatari: now I know what you guys may be thinking.
“What the hell is a lesbian doing on the list?”
Well screw you guys, none of these women actually exist, so I can do what I want! Suruga is an example of wanting something you can never have. She’s also a hell of a unique temptation. And though she was a pretty mild tomboy in Bakemonogatari, when she returns in Nisemonogatari she is bone jarringly (I mean that how you think I mean it) more sexual. I’m a bit rusty on my Nisemonogatari psycho-analysis, but I’d say even the playful side of her that just wants to be as close and naked to Araragi just to be closer and more naked to her true crush, Senjougahara, is enough of an incentive for me to label her as smoking hot. Oh my! I’ll never look at a room full of books the same way again!
Msyu from C: Money of Soul: as if my last choice wasn’t weird enough… You guys remember how only a moment ago I mentioned characters not existing? Well, this lady doesn’t even technically exist in her own show!
Msyu is a funny case when putting on this list because just describing her becomes a convoluted mess. She’s an Assett to a character in her show. A digital commodity that represents that person’s future. And she just barely makes it on the list which doesn’t allow lolis because of it. I don’t know if it’s the horns, or the outfit that seems to be made from tiny skirts and stockings, or (pun incoming) the fact that she has these amazing fire attacks, but she’s pretty hot. Oh my weakness for skirts, and thigh highs; you will be the death of me.
Karina (a.k.a. Blue Rose) from Tiger & Bunny: oh what a ridiculous outfit! And those advertisements that are just everywhere! Why is it that I made this pic? Oh right, because Blue Rose is just gorgeous and owns every bit of her style (well not literally, it’s all sponsored by corporations). Karina is very much just an ordinary teenage girl, as cliche as that sounds. It’s just when she dons her Blue Rose alter-ego, and starts flaunting her meta-human abilities amongst the pomp and flair that we see her really come alive. It’s a combination of that outfit, all that blue and that beautiful face that really sucks you in. Oh! And the catchphrase, I can’t forget the catchphrase!
“My ice may be a little cold, but your crime has been put completely on hold!”
Mami Tomoe from Madoka Magica: this is a style pick. I love Mami’s style! The colors of her outfit, the choice of clothing along with the muskets for weapons. Her eyes must be drops of warm honey. Her hair looks like it was fashioned from rainbows. And my weaknesses for skirts and thigh highs come alive again when I see her. She’s infamously known for one of the more memorable scenes in recent anime. But I think it’s that way because a lot of people fell in love with her character. Simply gorgeous.
Hideyoshi Kinoshita from Baka to Test to Shokanju: yeah, Hideyoshi was on the previous list. Hideyoshi is on this list. Why? Because Hideyoshi is one of anime’s hottest characters. You have to be to make guys swing that way. You know what I mean. You gotta swing for the fences to get a hot Hideyoshi.
Liang Qi from CANAAN: that’s right! Why was I apologizing for having a lesbian on this list when I had already had Liang Qi on the last one? She’s definitely the craziest on this list. And that fuels her hotness quotient. I also have a weakness for chinese dresses and cheongsam. And she’s constantly walking around in those. She’s shameless, murderous, ruthless and the kind of personality you’d put in solitary confinement because you know she’d be able to kill her cell mate with as little as a bed sheet. And she’d do it for no reason. Why is she hot? Because if she asked me I couldn’t bear to tell her otherwise. One because it’s the truth. Two, because crazy sex is the hottest. Yeah, I went there.
