Hello everybody! So, we are back this week with another tag! We were tagged by the wonderful Kayla at Kdrewthebookworm to do the Ouran Host Club Book Tag. She is an awesome blogger and we definitely recommend you guys check out her blog if you haven’t before. In fact, DO IT! RIGHT NOW! We’ll wait…
So, did you guys check her out? We told you it was awesome! Now, we had never heard of this tag before (it was created by icebreaker694, another great blog covering YA, anime and Manga, which you guys should also go check out), so we are SUPER happy that Kayla introduced it to us by tagging us! We wouldn’t call ourselves huge fans of Ouran Host Club, but we do love anime, and this is one of the ones that has been on our list to check out for a while, so we are SO excited to take part in this tag!
Without further ado, lets get to the tag!
First of all, like a test in high school, you have to read the directions! In case we tag you (or if we don’t and you just want to give the tag a shot anyway) you need to know what you’re doing! So, here are the rules:
1. (Always) Thank the person who tagged you! C’mon guys, its common courtesy!
2. Always pingback to the creator (icebreaker694)! She’s like a mother watching her children grow up, so, rightfully so, she wants to see your post and all the progress her tag has made. Keep her in the loop guys; is that too much to ask???
3. Answer all the questions below! Duhhh, this one is kind of a no-brainer. (You don’t have to have watched the show to be able to answer them.)
4. And finally, the last rule: Tag 8+ bloggers! We want to keep spreading the Ouran High School Love!
Now, we really mean it this time! Let’s get started on this tag!
1. Theme Song: A misleading character
Warren from The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. We’re not going to say anything more. don’t want to spoil the series any further for the few readers that might not have gotten to this series yet.
2. Haruhi: A character every other character loves
Eddie Castile from the Vampire Academy series and the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead. If you guys have read these series, you will know exactly what we are talking about. We don’t think this guy has a single flaw, in either series; he is gallant, courageous, chivalrous and honorable. He feels personally guilty when things out of his control go wrong. He is so likable, to every read and every other character in the book, that he may actually be unlikeable. Who could possibly be that perfect?
3. Tamaki: A character who started a movement
Alina Starkov from The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. The people of Ravka starting calling her her a saint, SANKTA ALINA for goodness sake, if thats not a movement, we don’t know what is.
4. Kyoya: A character with parental issues
Samantha Reed from My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. To say Samantha’s mom, her only present parent, is uptight would be the understatement of the century. She’s snooty, bossy, judgmental, prejudiced, rude and completely occupied with everything else other than her daughter— her career, her love life, her neatly vacuumed carpet. Ugh, she is downright dreadful.
5. Kaoru & Hikaru: Brotherly love
This one was really hard for us, and we realized it’s because we don’t read that many books with male main characters, which is something that we need to make more of an effort on. What we finally ended up deciding on was brotherly love between friends rather than actual brothers. We picked two male characters who are best friends, so much so you might as well call them brothers—Ethan Wate and Wesley “Link” Lincoln from the Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stool. This series is now a little bit of an oldie but its still a goodie! We remember loving their banter and shenanigans. And their friendship, we think, could only be as endearing and genuine as it is in the series if these characters were really more like brothers than best friends.
6. Mori: A character who is scary on the outside, but a bundle of fluff on the inside
Elias Veturius from the An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir. Now, we get that Elias isn’t really the most scary of characters in appearance or personality, but as a soldier for the Martial Empire in training—and not just any soldier, but the Empire’s greatest military academy’s finest student—complete with daunting silver mask, we imagine that to anyone else in the Empire and anyone outside Blackcliff Academy’s training ground, Elias is a pretty scary sight to behold. And we all know he is a thoughtful, caring, bundle of agonized and conflicted fluff on the inside.
7. Honey: A character who likes to eat
We’re gonna choose another Leigh Bardugo character for this one. (If you can’t tell already, we love her books). So, we would say Nina Zenik from the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo. She is a strong woman with no self-doubts, her body image least of all. We love Nina’s self-confidence and think she is a great role-model for female readers everywhere.
8. Renge: A tag-along character
We are going to go with two characters on this one—Momo and Appa from the Avatar: The Last Airbender TV series and comic series. They are so adorable and are always there for Aang and the crew to count on!
9. Nekozawa: A character who likes the dark side
We’re gonna go with yet another Leigh Bardugo character for this one, once again from her Grisha trilogy. The Darkling. We kind of figured that if your power is literally summoning darkness in different forms, you would have to somewhat like the dark side? Or at least be connected to it intrinsically, albeit unwillingly…?
