I noticed that many people posted mai waifu lists. Mostly these posts are written by males who don’t have a life list female anime characters. To my knowledge, only Miz did both male and female versions – I thought it would be fun to write this too ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll start with husbands edition.

Van Slanzar de Fanel (Escaflowne)

“You mean fighting to bring an end to fighting? I think you’ll find there’s no such thing! “

Van is an excellent swordsman, a king, and has awesome wings ๐Ÿ™‚

Sebastian (Kuroshitsuji)

“Akuma/de shitsuji desu kara.”

Sebastian is great in many aspects, but he is a demon and can use whatever is necessary to achieve his goals, as we’ve seen in the infamous episode 17. Because of that, I was somewhat hesitant to include him on the list, but it is difficult to resist the dark side ๐Ÿ˜›

Larva (Vampire Princess Miyu)

The name “Larva” is taken from Roman mythology, which like “Lemures” refers to a restless spirit of the dead. Larva’s name and signature mask may also have been inspired from the white, ghostly Venetian Carnival mask “Larva,” also called “Volto.” (Source)

Shinma (็ฅž้ญ”) is a combination of god (kami, ็ฅž) and demon (ma, ้ญ”)

Larva is a great guardian and can really understand your feelings ๐Ÿ™‚

Zechs Merquise (Gundam Wing)

“Space calls out to humans. And the earth tries to pull us back down, saying that what we are doing is wrong…”

Ah, this brings back memories… I watched Gundam Wing when it aired on Toonami about a decade ago… Zechs is a man of honor, as Jackie Chan will tell you, and has good intentions, but his methods are quite extreme. His voice actors are good in both versions, and combination of long blond hair with blue eyes makes him quite attractive ๐Ÿ™‚

Li Ren (Hanasakeru Seishounen)

“You are far more foolish than I had imagined.”

Li Ren is a very smart person with many connections, a big heart, excellent cooking skills, and priceless expressions when he is angry ๐Ÿ˜›

Jouslain Tytania (Tytania)

โ€œA fire set off in the brush will not be put out that easily, and it will leave a source of fire somewhere.โ€

Jouslain is almost perfect: he is a very nice and smart person who tries to solve most conflicts diplomatically, has power and money, and great looks. I especially like his cherry eyes ๐Ÿ™‚

Kurama (Yu Yu Hakusho)

“The more impatient we are, the more mistakes we make.”

This should not be too surprising, given that he is on my avatar picture ๐Ÿ˜› I like his analytical yet kind nature and devotion to protect people close to him ๐Ÿ™‚ Red hair and green eyes is not the best combination, but it works well for him, and I love Youko’s white hair ๐Ÿ™‚

Song by Megumi Ogata who voiced Kurama

The ending after four minutes is out of sync due to change of a soundtrack. The music is actually “Dark Freeways” by Aalborg Fantasy Soundtracks, but it fits the footage better than the originally intended composition ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, that was a fun hypothetical exercise ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll post waifu version soon.

What anime character(s) would you take as a husband?

  1. Nice list. I agree with Sebby and Kurama-sama. I haven’t seen the other series though, but I’m inclined to agree with Li Ren (he looks hawt) and Jouslain (I never got past ep 2 of Tytania, shall I give it another shot?)

    Ahaha, I’m very tempted to do one too, but I just can’t seem to decide among the guys! I should probably start the ranking process… xDD

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

      As for Tytania, it depends on what you are looking for in anime series. The plot is not very good. In fact many people dropped the series around the middle. The directing is outstanding though – definitely the best of the last year.

      Oh yes, it is very difficult to choose among so many good candidates ๐Ÿ™‚ Take your time – I would love to see your list ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. OMG KURAMA-SAMA!!! XD I consider him my first ‘bishie love’ hahaha. I liked Zechs, but I was so into Duo Maxwell and his braids back when I watched Gundam Wing I was rather oblivious to his smexiness ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. When I clicked, I so knew Sebastian was going to be here. XD Biggest surprise here is Van, but then again… it’s understandable ^^ Adds nice balance to the harem.

    1. haha Yes, it should not be too surprising, given all the Kuroshitsuji coverage here ๐Ÿ™‚

      As for Van, wings are difficult to resist ๐Ÿ˜›

  4. Mm you’re still a guy right (haha…)?

    Anyway, my list of male characters I find attractive:

    Larva (vampire princess miyu)
    The Count (Gankutsuou)
    Kusuriuri (Mononoke)
    Reinhard (LoGH)

    Mm that’s all I can think of right now.

    1. I have to admit that I am actually a fangirl that posed all this time as a guy ๐Ÿ˜›

      Thank you for your interesting list ๐Ÿ™‚ We even have a match! hehe Besides Larva, I like Kusuriuri from your list the most ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Ooh, I finally had a chance to pop in here. Nice list. Lemme see…Yup Sebastian is there, Li Ren and Jouslain too but Van, eh? Van irks me at first. He only got less annoying as the series progresses. Kurama and his thorny rose whip (plus that smexy fox demon transformation) wins out over Van anytime. ๐Ÿ˜›
    My male harem would include Hei of DtB & Edgar of Hakushaku to Yousei. Edgar would amuse me no end…LOL.

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

      Van has wings ๐Ÿ˜› But I agree with you, that is why Van is on the last place in the list and Kurama is on the first one ๐Ÿ™‚

      haha Yes, Edgar is awesome too! Just make sure to control his alcohol intake ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. LOL… I can’t believe you actually put Kurama. So old school ^__^ Since you put many guys from 90’s anime, I’m surprised that you didn’t put anyone from Fushigi Yuugi or Kenshin.

  7. O_O First time I have seen this entry.. so I approve.. one of these years I might just dust up and revamp my choices.. (sighs) for Larva.. and lol to Kurama.. since I chose Hiei in my first choice. ^_^
