Who would you hang out with?
If you don’t like talking outside the bounds of the manga and think its stupid to talk about the characters as if they were real then stop reading this post right now! If ur still reading then u must be ok with that type of conversation and find it at least remotely entertaining… so enjoy^_^
In another thread people started discussing who’d they hang out with if they were to sit down at a table to eat and drink for a couple hours. This wasn’t who’d you take into battle or who you think is the strongest but rather who’d you want at the table that you would enjoy conversating with.
Some will go for the funniest, some will go with characters that match their personality, some will choose those who they are attracted to. The reasons to choose characters are almost as endless as there are characters to choose from. Below I run down a couple different kinds of lists, you can comment on what your characters would be for that list or come up with your own. Just keep it between 1-3 characters per list, no more than 3 ^_^
My every day posse
How bad ass would this posse be?! Pesche is freakin hilarious, Mugen is funny and someone you want in a bar fight and Matsumoto is cool as hell, strong as a muther f**ker and very easy on the eye’s ^_^
So interesting I’d just shut up while they talked
Minato from Naruto
Madara from Naruto
Imagine being able to sit and hear Minato talk about Kushina and the fight with the Nine tails, Madara and his fight with the 1st and EVERY thing that happened between then and the present and finally L from Death note to dissect everything they were saying and breaking it down to the real truth… cause we all know “Madara” is going to be playing some mind games at that table.
The components of my brain
Aizen from Bleach
Grimmjow from Bleach
Lulouch from Code Geass
This list kinda makes up my psyche. Aizen is the calm, arrogant planner, Grimmjow is the crazy, angry, passionate about what he believes in prick, Lulouch from Code Geass because I’m politically driven and also because even though I may seem evil on the outside my intentions are good ^_^
I want to hear your selections! Go to the comments sections and tell us who you’d choose and why you chose them. I look forward to reading some of your entries ^_^
…and from the estrogen side of things…
This is Mollie (Ibiki Teishi). Jeremiah put up his answers to the questions above, but I think estrogen might answer this question a little differently. My takes on the question follow.
Remember, we’re not going to battle, we’re just gonna hang and talk and have slumber parties. Okay, about half the male readers just got nose bleeds…trust me guys, all-girl sleepovers are rarely tremendously sexy. At least not from where I sit.
Okay, so the point here is to build a girl team you’d want to have to your house or meet for lunch or invite to your bridal shower. Like Jeremiah, I kind of had three lists in my head and then a surprise fourth list that I’ll get to in a mo.
1. BFF kind of friends ❤
These are the gals I’d expect to be so compatible with that we’d be lifelong friends. Fun to hang with, ability to connect on mental level and personality compatibility that might mean acutal friendship.
Ten Ten from Naruto. Yeah, I know you all think she’s weak, but she’s on my first string because she works really hard and has a great attitude through tremendous pressure. I mean, how hard can it be to have to put up with Team Gai’s macho enthusiasm…and yet she doesn’t lose her sunny attitude in too many complaints.
Karin Kurosaki from Bleach. I almost picked Tatsuki here, but really, she’s just a little too jock-y for me to have a good time hanging with her…and…I think I might worry about getting pinched or having to tell her I really didn’t like her THAT way. Karin has probably the most similar attitude to me…tomboyish, cynical and sarcastic. If I had her over for a sleep over I wouldn’t have to worry about being pinched, we could watch action movies and I wouldn’t have to worry that there would be plans for too much talk about cosmetics, plucking and fashion.
Temari from Naruto. This third slot was a toss up. Tsunade might be fun to hang with…but gambling is only fun for a few seconds for me before I get the guilt…plus I wouldn’t be able to keep up when the sake came out, and who wants to *always* be the designated driver? Anko might fit, but seems to be a little too damaged. Kurenai seems to have an interesting and painful past, and yet manages to be nice. But I think Temari and I would share more laughs and that is ultimately more important to me…life’s too short and brutal to not laugh your a$$ off when you can.
2. Interesting, intense women to be taken in less frequent doses
These are gals I’d love to hang with, but probably couldn’t have in my life every day without getting overwhelmed. This is similar to Jeremiah’s ‘shut up and listen’ list.
Sir Integra Wingates from Hellsing. Wow. Sexy. Interesting. Tense and intense. I’d so like to get inside her head and her past, but know that being too close might make me crazy or dead (meh, or undead even).
Konan from Naruto. WTF woman?! How can you be so badass and be such a handmaiden to that little emo twirp? Again, I just want to know the story, but I don’t want her to know where I live, if you know what I mean.
Seiren from Vampire Knight. Kaname’s bodyguard. Blink and you’ll completely miss her. Just how much of a badass does one have to be to end up a bodyguard to the primo dreamo purest blood of them all? And her loyalty is unquestionable. And Kaname doesn’t think twice about trusting her or knowing she’s just going to get the right sh!t done…he barely even has to talk to her, its’ just assumed. What is in her/their past to allow that to be? Another story I’d love to hear, but it’s kind of like making friends with the mob…get close enough to hear the story and end up with a bad case of dead for knowing too much.
3. Coed team to invite to parties…
Maito Gai from Naruto. Yeah. So the drama and enthusiasm. No barbeque would be complete without him, and a good time would be had by all once he arrived.
Orihime Inoue from Bleach. She’s nice and pretty and stacked, so putting her on the guest list will bring more people to the bash…which just means more fun for all.
Aidou Hanabusa from Vampire Knight. Invited for the same reason as Orihime and Gai. He’s pretty, he’s comical and he’s actually pretty nice, too. Good choice to get a party rolling.
4. Kissable Candidates
So…yeah…the girl point of view…I couldn’t do it without considering who’s the most kissable. I have a feeling, out of all the categories on this list, our female readers/commenters would rather answer this bit. Sorry guys, but for us its usually all about the romance.
Kagetora from Shinobi Life. EEEEEE. Fangirl squeals. Can I have one of these to go please? I’d like to take him home with me right now. If you don’t know Shinobi Life, get some, you’ll be glad you did. This is a manga to leave you a little glassy-eyed from the heat of the romance. Not ecchi, although I just made it sound that way, but powerful food for a wanton imagination (*raises eyebrows*). And Kagetora is fish out of water funneh on top of being deadly, beautiful, traditional and incredibly loyal.
Jiraiya from Naruto. Of course. Did you expect me to skip him? He’s interested in the ladies and sex and not afraid to admit it. He’s funny as hell, which always makes for a great addition to someone who can kiss good…and I assume he can. He’s…a powerhouse…not built like these shojo pretty bois…and that makes me droooooooooollll.
So…okay ladies…step up here…who would be on your team (or teams)? And guys, feel free to pipe up here. I know from my own experience, I usually have more in common with the guys than the gals, so if you want to build a team or girlfriends or kissing candidates (no, not sex slaves…*PUKES*), give it a go. ^.^
