It is now day two of NaBloPoMo and I’ve yet to fall! I think we’re doing okay for now. Today I’d like to create a response post to Pantastic Panda’s Day 1 post, Pan’s Armada: Husbandos! I thought I’d do so because the topic of husbandos and waifus has come up a couple of times in the Unime staff chats and when it’s my turn to speak up, my answer is…peculiar.
So, a list of my husbandos? Well, I have a lot and Pan’s use of the word Armada is pretty accurate for my list…because it feels like there’s no end to all my anime crushes. However, there’s something even more intense than husbandos for me. It’s kind of like a massive reverse harem but not really because it would require a female for my guys to fawn over, and like an orgy (as I like to call it) but not really because it’s more than just drunkenness and sex.
What is it exactly?
I have no name for it, but basically it’s intense feels for my anime crushes with boyfriends I’ve assigned to them. In other words, my Armada is made up of OTPs and favorite couples, 100% of them male. With the only female (me) being a voyeur, haha
Basically, I fawn over a lot of bishounen but what really makes me melt, swoon, hyperventilate, fan myself, get teary eyed, and choke out incoherent noises are when my baes are paired with a boyfriend 😀
(I’m getting emotional just thinking about it *sniff*)
So I thought I’d share some of my more intense OTPs!
This here, ladies and gents, is what started me on the path to the dark side. It was my first ever boy’s love pairing and even though I don’t ship it as often or as fervently as I used to in elementary school, it continues to have a soft spot in my heart! I initially shipped them both as an ‘experiment’. I didn’t know what yaoi was but when I looked it up under the Naruto tag I fell in love~
I also only shipped SasuNaru at first but after some time I started to see the appeal of NaruSasu, hence the SasuNaruSasu 🙂
Fun fact: This is the only yaoi pair I have for the Naruto fandom. At the time I was a fan of Naruto, all my favorite pairings revolved around heterosexual couples, mostly including Sakura in the mix. I only later went back and started to like Deidara x Sasori but it never exploded for me.
While not a hardcore fan of Hetalia itself I do love the characters and always like to place them in worlds outside of Hetalia. Other than SasuNaru, this is another pairing that I wrote a couple fanfictions for when I was younger. I’m also a big fan of USUK (preferably in this order, haven’t really delved into UKUS), GilbertMatt (these guys are so cute!), GilbertAustria (didn’t find much out there but wows they so mmmm), and other little pairings.
As for Spamano, it’s possibly the only intense OTP that I never really could see as RomaSpain. I just can’t see Romano as the seme…and I know that Romano was with Spain since he was a wee child don’t judge me! He’s an adult now 😛
So I know Pan mentioned one of her top husbandos is Levi and I have to say that I’m there, I’m SO there. He is mega amazing in the looks department and in his passions (and his voice! like, wow, HOT). Thus it’s only obvious he would make this list and if I’m being honest this pair is my top OTP ever (well, no that’s not right, it can’t be the top before 2013)
I’ve spent so much money on these two, more so on Levi. I’ve got tons of merchandise with Levi on it covering my shelves, walls, floor, closet! I’ve written 18 stories for this pair and that’s not including those I didn’t publish (18 is the highest number I’ve done for any pairing). I’ve got more than 1,000 pictures saved on Pinterest and there’s tons more on my computer…My first doujinshi purchases and really the only ones are of these two, I even went so far as to look up fanfiction in Spanish for these two, which I have never done for any other OTP. Ever.
EreRiRen has invaded my life!
I do have the manga on hold though since Eren’s situation is just the same chapter after chapter. But wow, everything been so intense with revealing the Titan’s nature and all that! But I digress, EreRiRen. At first this pair was strictly RiRen but then someone introduced me to EreRi and I was hooked. Now I can’t decide which I like best, haha
And my most latest addiction~
I just had to put this on the list because I know this is going somewhere if it’s made me go seek out the manga (which has decent art most of the time, if it’s not a bit awkward), buy merchandise, consider cosplaying as Miyuki Kazuya, and write up a ‘why I love these two dorks’ just to read some doujin (if I weren’t broke I would have already bought some doujin for these two, Hummel~).
Like most of you already know, I’m not even done with the first season, though I have finally passed the half mark (but now I’m at a standstill again). I won’t write up why I love these two again since I wrote a bit about that in my post what is your OTP but be certain that they will appear again later on in my blog 😀
Those were my top OTPs, husbando/waifu material (haha), and when placed together they make me so SO happy 😉
Other non-canon favorites that are part of my Deviant Armada but that didn’t make it onto this list include:
- Haikyuu: KageHina, DaiSuga, TsukiYama, UkaiTake, KuroKenma, OikawaHajime
- KnB: KagaKuro, AoKise, MitoSakibara, TakaoMidorima, ImaSakurai
- Other: KaneHide, Kanekicest (TG), Nezushi (No.6), SaruMi (K), MikaYuu (Owari), Shizaya (Drrr), MakoHaru (Free, I swear this is so canon), YukioRin (Blue Exorcist), FrauTeito (07 Ghost), InaSureIna (AZ)
AND MANY MORE
The list will also continue to expand and thus my army shall be infinite!! I shall be unstoppable! Bwahahahahaha
