my favorite thing about ouran is the complete lack of heterosexuality in the main cast, like
the main character is literally an asexual (and possibly agender) crossdresser raised by a flirtatious transvestite dadmom and everybody just goes with it, like no one ever gives her a hard time about it (except for tamaki but we later found out that he only tries to remind her that she’s a girl because he’s genuinely worried about her) or tries to tell her she needs to change.
and as for the host club members, most if not all of them seem to be pretty laid back and flexible when it comes to sexuality (tamaki definitely was into haruhi even when he thought she was a guy, the twins act gay af half the time, kyoya and tamaki have that weird “mommy and daddy” thing, ect.).
there’s an entire school full of singing lesbians.
gender roles apparently don’t apply either; haruhi is tough and mature and independent and never feels like a damsel in distress.
did i mention the transvestite dadmom who NOT ONLY works to support his/her daughter and rocks at being a single parent, but is respected and accepted by haruhi’s friends.
that one story arch where kasanoda had a crush on haruhi but thought she was a guy and he just accepted it like “ok i guess i like guys now that’s cool”
(in the anime at least) haruhi never has a *sexy* bra and panties shot (she gets walked in on while changing a couple of times but it’s never a fanservice type thing), and remains independent and uninterested despite being surrounded by hot guys 24/7. because, you know, it’s possible to be just friends with someone even if they’re physically attractive.
haruhi and hikaru go on a date and share a couple of romantic moments, but things don’t really work out and they both accept it and stay friends without either of them being bitter or resentful.
and none of this is even treated like a big deal? it’s all just accepted as the way things are?
anon suggested tanaka and hinata watching horror movies and tanaka being more spooped than hinata. i reckon tanaka would be more blustery to keep his tough dude thing up but duh look how scary this movie sounds
delay would probs kick in at some point and hinata would freak out on the bike ride home tho for real
encyclopedic knowledge of her favourite animes including the manga/visual novel/drama cd canon, will lecture you with 5 paragraphs if a single line of dialogue is semi-ooc in your fanfiction, complete madohomu trash
loves all garbage anime and will not turn the fucking volume down when shes marathoning bad english dubs, eats a lethal amount of ramen, wears all the naruto headbands at once while she trolls the madohomu fanpages
you wouldnt realize she's anime trash until u saw pics of her in fucking A+ cosplays on every convention facebook page, crushes the cameras of dudebros who try to take pictures of her inappropriately without her permission
studio ghibli enthusiast to the fuckin MAX, always suggests ponyo at the anime club meeting (though they never watch it) and keeps a copy on her at all times, insists disney ripped off miyazaki
makes fun of everyone on 4chan for their "entry level" tastes in anime but watches THE MOST pretentious, psuedo-intellectual anime on the fucking planet to seem smart, always smells like she bathed in lychee ramune
that one fucking asshole who talks like an anime antagonist irl and brags about their anime sword collection constantly, always tries to physically fight any new members in the anime club "to prove they're worthy". she's been kicked out of anime club six times.
super into martial arts anime and DBZ, but has a super huge weak spot for shoujo animes because sapphire loves them, would literally bend the world to cosplay sapphires otp with her
the one who can get away with wearing school uniform cosplays everyday bc she looks so goddamn cute in them, will fucking own your ass at ddr, her future vision didn't predict mami's death in madoka magica and she still cries about it
Thanks to cana-alberohyeah for this suggestion! But i do want to point out that this one was a hard one to make because i see Juvia as so much more than gray’s fangirl and unfortunately there weren’t many gifs that did not have gray in them but do know that i think these gifs represent the zodiac signs with or without gray in them.
