Hello my little lights, Irina’s Twitter recently reshared some of her older content.. and I am not sure if it is automated or if she randomly selects posts to retweet herself… but regardless, a post came up that inspired me. Top 5 anime characters I want as personal assistants that one was. Given the hyperlink I put in there I am pretty sure it is an automated response! Anyway.. I have Staff.. but I can never have enough servants..Uhm I mean Staff.. so here are five fantastic picks for new staff members.
A Maid: Tohru
For the Powerful Women tag Irina sniped Tohru as my answer… and Summer’s as well and I ended up picking Rem as a roommate instead.. but in this new list I can finally admit that in hindsight I do like Tohru more then Rem. Points for Irina though for having such a objectively true opinion! She is more fun to hang out with, she is way more openly gay then Rem is/might be and she comes with an adorable baby dragon, that I do not want to lewd but just feed her living things and see them vanish in her gaping maw in one big swoop! That alone could keep me entertained for days.
She can even bring Kobayashi , I do not need to engage with her romantically .. though a dragon and a prin…. I mean the manager would be an interesting couple and I bet we could hit it off.. I am fine either way though as Tohru loves her job and doubles as air transportations. I live on an island but I get seasick very easily but not airsick so this would be a great way to circumvent annoying little troubles. I could play with Kanna, geek out with Fafnir, drink with Kobayashi, Cry with Elma and ignore the other one..but I bet her assets will draw in a whole lot of business to Paradise. All she needs to do is loaf around on the beach!
I do need a maid because my pool boy keeps inviting people to pee in my pool.. I know that “(definitely don’t) Pee in the Pool.. just means Pee in the pool.. but it has been manager proofed. . Sunny while great at his job.. is only great at it when he does it…which is completely random! Cabins might get cleaned, or it might not happen and people get a fish in a bucket as an apology instead. I love them both and the content they provide is swell but I need a backup plan. Besides..I am not very clean myself. I would not get down to the floor and clean it! I am so stiff I probably could not get up! Too much soapy stuff also makes my hands all dry and scaly! .. So better just use a dragon! I don’t think they will complain about dry skin.. Maybe Elma would.. but not Tohru! So she is a great Maid.. an okay mode of transportation and a powerful means to defend the island.
A Singer/Pianist: Maki Nishikino
I got Barry Manilow’s bill for booking him each night and let me tell you.. that guy is NOT cheap! Of course on his day off we have Jimmy Buffet on Paradise but let’s just say that Copacabana is getting old fast for me! I do it because Winstof keeps yelling for encores and Manilow is getting old enough that he forgets he already gave an encore. I know HER NAME was LOLA and I KNOW she was a showgirl.. Now shut the fuge up Mannilow! I am not even paying Jimmy Buffet… he just shows up! Cheeseburger in Paradise.. my touchie! So it may be a great idea to have our own little artist on the fictional payroll. Someone who can just play piano during dinner time or bring us singing entertainment in the evening at the bars. She can also play at my cast…house.. yes A cast house.. is a house thats like a castle.. I totally don’t have a castle! Ignore that! Either way a musician is a great idea to have.
Maki is an ideal pick because she comes with lots of outfits to fit every mood. She has sung in an idol ensemble, solo and in a tinier girl group so she is very experienced in any form of singing, meaning she has great range. She is skilled at playing the piano and is a sing a song writer, which also means she wont be running out of songs and we can innovate our repertoire and even play around with the seasons. Snow halation in winter, Natsuiro Egao de 1,2 jump in summer and a lot of Aishiteru Banzai.. the anthem of Paradise.
Lyrics that roughly translate as “Smile when you’re sad, let all the sadness blow away, because if you can keep smiling, the weather will change, skies will clear, even if you are unsure , the road to happiness will be revealed under blue skies. Some days it might rain, but remember that this water will also nurture the little tree that is our dreams. Cheers for Love! It gives the courage to never give up! Now let’s enjoy the present! Cheers for the love, let’s wave goodbye to yesterday, let’s move forward. Which is a very motivational song! And it’s pretty easy to learn even in Japanese! Cheers for Love! Singer Hired!
A Tailor: Nui Harime
So is it weird I want a homicidal character as Staff?! I am not sure, I mean it’s not my dad Nui killed so do I care?! I don’t think I do.. I mean he was the dad of anime protagonist anyway.. that’s a death sentence either way. So if she had not murdered him it would be a tragic accident, or a mysterious disappearance. She had to do it by a force greater than herself. Nui is very polite to the people who she serves so as the Royal Couturier of Paradise I think I am in the safe zone. Did I say Royal.. I mean grand.. her title will just be Royal to avoid confusion with her function in Revocs! Either way Nui is a person that is very compatible with me.. we both love pink, are kind of childish and are morally slightly more flexible than some of our peers. But hey at least we create our own happiness! If I see the style of outfits she makes for girls, except for that bancho one.. I love them all Nonnon and Ragyo get such cool outfits from here and her own is cute as a button so that is a thing.
Now you may wonder, why would a tropical resort need a tailor! Well do you know how hot it is in a tropical Paradise.. you have one outfit on for your day at the beach and then one for the night life, equalling to two outfits per day. I don’t launder every day so I have to have a lot of outfits on Paradise.. if I am in my moth-form I also tend to have a nervous tick where I chew on my clothes… except… it’s not just chewing, it is also eating my clothes. Besides.. I can’t host a ball at my place and show up in the same dress as before.. it’s all duplicate dresses of each other since I still AM an anime character in a way.. but just know each dress you will see on me is always a different one .. once I employ Nui! To this day I have never ever had my white socks turn pink and I am not about to start.. mostly because I am not sure if Tohru would do all laundry.. so just to be safe a personal tailor could be neat. Tailor Hired!
Who.. could also be a good bodyguard!
A Chef: Alice Nakiri
Those who read my Halloween story know my current chef has a bit of a drinking problem! I blame Irina, but hey she comes here for the cheap cooking wine and shares it with the chef once service is done. Then I have to find whatever bush he has passed out and sober him up. It’s just a hassle so I might as well replace it with a bit of a fancier chef that works well with people of stature. The food of Paradise has to be fancy because competition between resorts is fiercer than ever. Even though Paradise is is only semi fictional still people seem to think they can’t come over to my imaginative island to hang out.
Alice , kind of looks like the original Irina model..or at least the one I knew as the original.. it’s the white haired one at least.. I may be able to use my chef as a marketing tool by trending it is a much more popular blogger than I am AND she is a chemist…which means that even if I cant fool people there is definitely a secondary source of income here! I mean she only has to be a chef at lunch and dinner time.. the drunkard can still fry some eggs.. that means Alice can cook something else in the morning or help me teach a few things about high society! She is so useful!
In terms of character Alice seems to walk a fine line between high standards, yet also prefers it if she has the moral high ground while also not shying away from being selfish or petty if it is in her own best interest. I admire that, Alice is tactical and a shrewd business woman. If you haven’t been able to tell yet, we burn a lot of cash on Paradise and cash management isn’t great on Paradise so far.
We have Periwinkle who burns a lot of money on very bad games, Kuro who tries every pot noodle in existence, I am not sure if Sunny even knows what money is and Nui seems to have expensive taste. So does Alice.. but she comes from money and she isn’t unwilling to share it if it improves her working conditions! She is a good team player that is quirky enough to make her interesting. She is super pretty as well. Which is kind of neat because Alice seems like the chef that really wants to introduce herself to fancy guests at the resort. I need someone like her who can be a bit serious and shape up.. speaking of which this also brings me to my final pick.
An Attendant/Personal Assistant : Marcarita
So any angel from Dragon Ball Super would make for a great personal assistant but I chose the one with the Twin Tails. First of all I could have picked Whis for having the pink uniform but I find him a bit too patronising to his boss. Besides that I feel like someone named after whiskey would become chummy with Indigo! A personal assistant would need to get alone with me.. so that’s why a female angel is a better option. Vados might vocalise her concerns about me to much and makes me more insecure than I need to be. Besides I am not sure if I like Calvados!
Marcarita is based on the Margarita drink.. and that is a pretty girly drink and I like it! Besides that her personality is like hyper formal will make her look very posh! She would treat me like a little princess in my service and always with the utmost respect. She is used to dealing with clowns and she is fairly strict so she can bring some moral fiber to the rest of the staff.. while allowing me to do whatever I want.. because of hierarchy! She will respectfully advise me though which is a good thing!
Why do I need an Attendant?! Well.. uhm… she can take some tasks away from me and let me nap a bit. If Whis and Beerus are the less formal variant iI am sure this angel can pick up the moral slack of the rest of the staff. She can shape them up a bit while I go play weird video games to provide you with some new content! It also is a bit of a status symbol and that means if Karen wants to speak to me I have some emotional leverage. I’ll have you know I am important enough to have an angel as a personal assistant madame, your petty complaints are beneath me!
I could use my assistant to let go of some things,which is good because I am a worrywart! It’s also doesn’t conflict as much as a butler and a maid. Because I can just let Tohru serve me my food while Marcarita can manage my phone for me. You know do all the text messages, help me be more social on Twitter.. do dailies in my mobile games. So much possibilities! Wipping Paradise back into shape while giving me more nap time! This is an angel I really need to hire! Plus I could try some angel pick up lines!
Time for me to take a nap.. after all this work finding people who would work for me! Now with the staff expanded, it will be time for me to upgrade my tropical hut to something a bit more worthy of a person of my stature! So in our next post we will be looking at some amazing video game real estate! Untill then… Shine on my Little lights! Oyasumi!
