Voltron High School Host Club
I was thinking about this last night re-watching Season 2. Pidge is obviously our Haruhi, but the rest of the characters just don’t match up 100% so some things need shaking up. here are my thoughts.
-Allura could be the founder of the club and its charismatic “princess”, but less airheaded than tamaki obvs. I say this with love. consider: she’s the reason the voltron team came together in the first place. I think it’s appropriate. and as an added bonus, you get Allura being a charming host to all genders!
-(Lance wants really bad to be a player and a possibly a leader but since he isn’t either of those, I’m sticking with Allura)
-side note: I’m kinda meh on shipping as a whole tho so I’m not really interested in carrying over parallel relationship stuff from OHSHC to this crossover/au thing?
-Shiro doesn’t quite fit “the cool, wild type” but he’s the closest thing we’ve got to a Mori and obviously he has his own appeal. also he’s now apparently a high schooler? idk, everyone is high schoolers now. you heard it here first.
-I guess we could also age down Coran but I think it’s more likely he’s the club butler (or just Allura’s personal butler), so…
-no Hani equivalent but that’s fine with me tbh. I like Hani but…yeah, don’t think we have or need a Voltron character to parallel that whole dynamic.
-unless it’s a horribly hilarious subversion with Slav
-again, not a shipper, but in the place of Hikaru and Kaoru’s weird play-acted(?) “forbidden love” appeal (never my favorite thing anyway) you could always just…use Keith and Lance’s apparently-irresistible animosity instead? just tsundere it up. idk. this one’s weird but it makes me laugh, mainly because I like the idea of the club guests acting like the fandom.
-alternately I know they have their own individual appeal–Keith’s tough-yet-vulnerable loner attitude, Lance’s special brand of charm based around corny pickup lines and fun-loving personality, they could totally rock it solo.
-Hunk is of course the only one without any clear parallels to make, b/c you don’t really…find characters like him portrayed as appealing in manga, for the most part? or anywhere. but WE’RE GONNA CHANGE THAT. Hunk’s appeal comes from his strength, his kind nature, and his baking skills. I guess he’s like…the husband-type??? is that a thing??? it is now.
-I had more thoughts than I expected! I’m sure someone will turn up to suggest I shuffle the roles around some way, anyway, so who knows what will stick.
