#Frenemies of Otome

(Original Challenge created by Selina at Otome Amino!)



For this challenge, I traveled through my otome games and selected characters that I wouldn’t invite to tea parties I’d host. Not because I hate them, but because I know our ideologies, philosophical stances, and overall personality would collide if we were left in a room without one of our mutual acquaintances there.

While on Amino and my other blog, I bring out one of the many personas that Carl Jung has stated is a ‘mask’ that we use when we are in front of certain groups of people. No doubt, many of us carry several different types of personalities to hide our true face as it makes it easier for us to move about in society. Yet, when you think about it, do you truly get along with the people you say you do, or is that a mask as well?

Frenemies are an interesting term as it is another glance at what our shadow-self doesn’t like; if I get downright to it, frenemies have a quality we don’t have and it’s easy for us to not make nice with them instantaneously. When dealing with a personality I know I simply don’t cooperate well with, or if I don’t know them, I use a polite and sweet persona to neutralize the playing field.

However, I feel this is normal considering we are only our truest self when we are alone or with the people, we trust the most. (The Shadow Self in Otome).

In a past post I did for #themaleme I spoke about Lucien from Love & Producer: Queen’s Choice being my twin, and as my friends and family have stated my demeanor offline is starkly different than the persona I’m expected to have because of my work field. I feel that a conversation with coworkers is boring unless you have something to entertain me with. I’ve been told by my sister and closest best friend that I’m a sadodere/hinedere type, and I seem to have the most fun when I find something intriguing to dissect.

In truth, when I step away from the computer and head into the field and work with patients, I’ve been often told that my detached personality is confusing. As my smile looks genuine and so do my actions, yet, there underlies something not tangible and cold, albeit that is what I’m told. Yet, who knows if I truly am that way…

But if we want to put it into a better perspective my personality as curated by The TypeFinder is ENTP: You are an inspired innovator, motivated to find new solutions to intellectually challenging problems. You are curious and clever, and seek to comprehend the people, systems, and principles that surround you. Open-minded and unconventional, you want to analyze, understand, and influence other people.

 █   My Frenemy: Ukyo    █

.・:*◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣Ξ ◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣*:・˙

Ukyo has a split personality, his other half isn’t all too sweet, nice, and adorable as his true self is. His overly angelical side doesn’t sit well with me often, due to all his tears and what seems to be half-ass attempts at being honest. He does have his moments of sadness that he allows to consume him and cause jagged rifts between himself and others. His weakness to be self-sacrificing, and not exhausting all solutions gnaws at the edges of my patience, overall it made me realize how both of us wouldn’t have the pleasure of being close friends IRL. The more unsettling part for most friends I’ve spoken to about his route, I would be more well acquainted and possibly closer with his sinister side rather than the seraphic Ukyo.

 █     My Frenemy: Shin      █

.・:*◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣Ξ ◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣*:・˙

While Shin lies through his teeth half the time to protect his loved ones, and I can understand his character to a degree as to why he does the things he does. His Tsundora/Tsundra demeanor wouldn’t mesh well with my detached one. Why? I may be considered a sadist, but I don’t enjoy boorish teasing that doesn’t seem to illicit loving behavior. Shin wouldn’t be someone I’d ask to hang out with on a Sunday night for board games, he would however be the person I ask to go for a drink if I wanted an opinion on serious matters.

Truly, Shin and I wouldn’t be the closest friends, however, we would more than likely be closest frenemies, similar to his relationship with Toma.

 █     My Frenemy: Zen      █

.・:*◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣Ξ ◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣*:・˙

In my field of work, it’s hard not to meet someone who has Zen’s personality, there are plenty of them that traverse the field of the medical world. Either that or I happen to be the lucky denizen who happens to garner the interest of this type of person. Narcissistic, flirtatious, and openly entitled to their opinion; I’d hold better conversations with a book on The Philosophy of War rather than be committed to a discussion with Zen. I don’t hate him, but this type of egotistical energy would clash with my conservative nature, and thus, we’d either sit in mutable ambiance; or he would talk my ear off about all his accolades.

I fathom the most entertaining conversation we may have is if he brings up his direct ire for Jumin Han and the fact he has a distaste for felines.

 █     My Frenemy: Saeki      █

.・:*◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣Ξ ◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣*:・˙

I like Saeki, I do, but personality wise I can’t be around someone who flirts constantly as I’ll never be able to figure out what exactly they want. Even if I do have an inkling, I prefer not to stay in the presence of someone who always flirts, teases, and makes suggestive comments (especially if I am not familiar with them). The only time I will let conversations of suggestive nature in my presence is if I’m friendly enough with an individual to do so, otherwise, it’s not tolerated. Sorry, Saeki, I do think you’re a good guy, but you’d wear me out to the point I’d be hibernating for about a year until I become social again.

 █     My Frenemy: Taiga     █

.・:*◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣Ξ ◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣*:・˙

Once again, another character I do like, because I understand his habits but it would take a good amount of persuasion for me to be friends with them and meet on a regular basis. The Oresama/Dom figure is prevalent in the otome industry, it can even be the one that is most favored in certain games. However, I tend to have a very strong dislike to the entitlement issues they may have, yes, we can agree that most of them were either born into royalty or built their businesses from the ground up.

However,  that ‘alpha’ entitlement can get more than annoying, and would make me want to skip out with hanging with them, and just play games for the rest of the week.

 █     My Frenemy: Tsubasa     █

.・:*◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣Ξ ◥▅◤Ξ ◢▅◣*:・˙

Lastly, I do have a like/dislike relationship with Tsunderes, and they won’t be someone I’d flock to or start a conversation with at any party or gathering. Tsubasa is a good example, as his comments at times aren’t welcomed for certain moments, and I’d possibly end up whacking him with my pillow of justice. However, while I can get along with this kind of person if I find out how to tease them to the point that they cannot stand me. HAH!



My best friend once told me that the scariest thing she’s ever heard come from my mouth is, “entertain me.” I feel with all the personalities I’ve matched up in this blog, I’d have a fairly good verbal sparring match with these characters. I’m not a fan of Tsundoras, Narcissists, or Derederes, however, I can make nice if they have something that interests me.

Who are your frenemies? Let us know!
