This week I was nominated twice over to participate in the “My Pirate Crew” tag. Thanks to both Karandi and Winter Reverie for considering little ol’ me! Whilst a fun tag, the idea of being stuck on a boat indefinitely is not my idea of a good time. I’m not the strongest of swimmers and, to be honest with you, the ocean freaks me out (did you know that we’ve explored more of space than we have our own oceans? Who knows what kind of horrors lurk in the deepest depths?). I’d much rather stick to exploring land, thank-you very much! That said, that wouldn’t be in keeping with the “My Pirate Crew” tag, so, to make up for being stuck on a boat, I’ll pick the most fun shipmates there ever was!
- Display the My Pirate Crew logo and add ‘My Pirate Crew’ as a tag.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog.
- Link back to the original post here (so I can compare your crews to mine).
- Select seven anime characters and give them a position on the crew. These are the positions you can to fill. Warrior, sniper, chef, doctor, scientist, navigator, strategist, mechanic, entertainer.
- Nominate 5-10 bloggers.
- Set sail and rule the seas!
Without any further ado, here’s my crew!
In celebration of yet another fantastic episode of My Hero Academia (MHA) this week, in which Bakugou and Midoriya were finally able to diffuse the tension between them through an epic clash of fists, I would like to dedicate September’s Character Spotlight to my favourite fledgling hero (as well as one of my all-time favourite anime characters), Izuku Midoriya.
#7 Who is your anime crush?
If you’ve been following my blog for a while (or even for a few weeks) you’ll know that I have a finely honed taste in anime bishies, a taste that has been refined and cultivated over the span of a decade like a sommelier’s taste buds. The kind of men who float my boat all fall into a few select categories, chiefly: cocky, confident, capable, flamboyant, and ever so slightly effeminate. Howl, of the Howl’s Moving Castle fame, fits snugly into all of these categories and, so, has been a favourite of mine for quite some time now (2009, to be exact). Below are some more of the many reasons why he takes my fancy.
A big thanks to Moya, the writer behind The Moyatorium, for nominating me for the Build a Harem Challenge. It’s funny, because I’d actually planned to write a post like this several years ago, but never got ‘round to it. This was the final push I needed to actually do it, so, yeah, thanks for getting my lazy rear in gear!
