What kind of jobs would the characters have?

Let's assume they wouldn't or couldn't inherit a bunch of money. What do you think they would do?

Nanami: a ruthless fashion empire queen

Anthy: I think she'd operate a little new age shop that was really popular with teenage girls who were looking to make love potions.

Saionji: He'd probably make a great chef.

Touga: top male stripper in the country

Utena/Juri: coach of some girl's sports team

Akio: Best salesman ever.

Wakaba: I see her becoming a professional ballerina for some reason. o.O' Bwah.

Re: What kind of jobs would the characters have?

I can imagine Saionji either being a kendo instructor or a novelist.  In either case he still spends a lot of time camping in solitude.

Touga moves to Hollywood to become an actor/self-absorbed director.

Miki makes his living as a Math Professor.

Nanami, actually, is the politician. 

Tatsuya becomes a swim coach.

Re: What kind of jobs would the characters have?

Touga: History professor. The study of greed, sex, and power? He'd be all over it. Alternatively, lawyer with a view to politics.

...the rest are tongue in cheek.

Miki: I can only picture him crashing and burning horribly. Like... club kiddie who works at Piggly Wiggly until he OD's on something bad.

Saionji: Policeman. Probably corrupt.

Juri: Marries a gay rich man and then never has to be ashamed of being a lesbian again-- too married to be gay, too gay to want to sleep with a man. No job.

Shiori: Actress, forever relegated to the casting couch.

I can't think of any more, and anyway, I'm butchering things here. I'll shut up until I have another serious answer. cool

Re: What kind of jobs would the characters have?

Second on Saionji as a chef.

After the episode where she slaps her girls back into line, I'm actually starting to think Nanami would make quite a good mob boss.

Tsuwabuki has a corporate future ahead of him of some sort.  He's just so damn thorough, in notetaking and in seeing into people.

Juri has the grace, patience and focus to make an excellent pro golfer.

And for reasons I don't quite understand myself I envision Utena as a cabbie.

Re: What kind of jobs would the characters have?

Akio: Professional stuntman and film star. Still rides on the hood of his car, except it's covered in gasoline and flying over a row of exploding school buses.

Wakaba: Hostess at a family restaurant for a while. Later becomes a guide at Tokyo Disneyland.

Touga: Insurance salesman. Also owns an upscale gentleman's club in Shinjuku.

Nanami: Realtor. Almost single-handedly causes another housing crash.

Saionji: Repo man/debt collector. Most of his income goes to paying lawyers for assault and battery charges.

Juri: Professional model at first, but is forced to change careers after punching out a rival who insinuated she had fat thighs.

Miki: Permanent college student; tutors dumb kids while continuously getting extensions for his dissertation.

Tsuwabuki: Parks people's cars while studying to get a paralegal license.

Re: What kind of jobs would the characters have?

I could see Miki as a doctor personally. And then burning out badly. Poooooor Miki...

OK, granted that one and the rest come from a fanfic I abortively tried to write, but I think a few of them work quite well.

I see Utena & Anthy running a bar. Utena makes the drinks, and Anthy serves 'em.

And I really like the idea of Touga as a psychiatrist. "Tell me about your mother!"

Actually I was kind of picturing Touga as the rock idol, girls throwing underwear and red roses onto the stage.....he and Saionji could team up and start a band!

I can see Juri and Nanami starting rival fashion design companies. Nanami, always worried that Juri will some how best her designs, at the last minute always adds these extravagant touches (like very large necklaces) to her shows, which leads to interesting results. (Both of these careers are of course inspired by "Nanami's Cowbell")

I can see Miki as a psychologist or a psychiatrist or something (yeah I can see him as a doctor, too, only dealing with mental issues.) I'm not sure why, maybe because Mikage interviews him that one episode?

Kozue should work in a casino. Or the porn industry.

Anthy could have one those animal-training companies. Obedience school, only for all sorts of animals, not just dogs.

Mitsuru could be a secretary to some VIP in government or business. He's so super organized, and he takes orders well, and even anticipates what his "superiors" need.

....I'm out of inspiration for the others LOL sorry.

It's an old thread and not quite on the same topic, but we had a similar discussion here.  (Scroll down a few posts to get to the part where we started talking about jobs.)  Some interesting ideas here and there!

I guess I'm going blind from too much computer exposure, because I read that as "necrophiliac".

Re: What kind of jobs would the characters have?

Utena: She's on the dole. Because the last duel seriously f'ed her up. And she doesn't have any marketable skills to speak of.

Anthy: She works for the dole-office. She pretends to be nice and like she wants to help but in reality she enjoys screwing with poor unfortunates while giving a nice smile. Her and Utena meet up again when Utena cashes her unemployment check.

Akio: A very exclusive pimp in a very exclusive club. Doubles as one of the help then reveals himself to be the head honcho at whatever is seriously the worst time for the client. Moonlights as a circus ringleader. Has aspirations to become national deity of a very small country nobody's ever heard of. His evil plans are in motion as we speak.

Kanae: Call-girl, who happens to be engaged to the pimp. Not very good at her job: appears to be a bit out of it. Wonders why pimp makes her work at his club and why they're still not married. Whenever she starts to wonder this he feeds her "apples" and she stops wondering.

Touga: Call-girl, er I mean guy. Works for Akio naturally. The star attraction of the circus...er club. Men want him and women want his hair. He dreams of becoming a pimp one day...

Saionji: Lion-tamer at Akio's circus. But spends most of his time snorting crack. A crack-related lion accident leads to him being put on the dole and what happens to him at the dole-office leads to him needing more than crack.

Nanami: Trophy wife who lets her rich and fashionable hubby have as many affairs as he wants.

Tsuwabuki: Nanami's chauffeur. Her very hot chauffeur who has the hots for her, but she doesn't seem to think about men in quite that way. It's so sad and filled with much unrequited angst.

Keiko: Is sucking her way successfully up the corporate ladder. Visits tasteful club on Friday nights for time with her favorite call-guy.

Juri: An Olympian fencer who does lucrative commercials for tasteful high-fashion. Wears her gold medal around her neck and alternates between looking at that and her locket.

Shiori: A really bitchy receptionist. Paranoid that women are looking at her in that way.

Ruka: Juri's stalker. That's right, he managed to recover just to take up his rightful place in life. Is also on the dole to maintain his stalking activities.

Miki: Famous pianist. Still genius, now with full-blown compulsive disorder beginning to eat away at his sanity. Kozue not helping matters.

Kozue: Mooches off Miki. Went to collect dole payment once but after being looked at in that way by Anthy, decided to keep mooching off Miki instead. Apparently Miki's "manager" but all she really does is keep the fangirls away from him.

Mikage: Evil psychiatrist. No people skills whatsoever, but doesn't matter thanks to evil use of drugs to manipulate patients. Puts drugs in tea.

Mamiya: He works for the dole-office. Nobody knows who he is or why he keeps showing up every now and then. Anthy tells Utena he's her second cousin. Utena believes her.

I actually see Juri in this role more than Nanami.  Nanami's quite the wannabe when it comes to fashion, whereas Juri really seems to click with it.

As for the rest:

Utena - PE teacher
Wakaba - English teacher at the same school as Utena, why yes, they do become Nyamo and Yukari.

Anthy - I liked the new age shop idea.

Akio - Now here's the psychologist.

Nanami - Marries rich and becomes surprisingly involved in civic activities.  I really think she grows out of her bitchiness.  Perhaps atones for past sins by donating heavily to human societies.

Miki - Although he still can't get past the sister and piano thing, I could see him remaining heavily involved in music by becoming a conductor.

Saionji - I could see him instructing at and then inheriting a kendo dojo somewhere down the road.

Touga - President or CEO of a major corporation.  Or just inherits the family business, whatever that happens to be.

Kozue - Bar hostess.

Tsuwabuki - Zoo keeper! ^_-

Re: What kind of jobs would the characters have?

I must resurrect this thread (or try to!), because...

...I feel very strongly (and therefore drew a comic page for it) that Kozue would become a (single-mother) film stunt actor. She's just so good at putting herself in dangerous situations for a rush. And I feel it'd be interesting for her to have to balance that with responsibility (responsibility that came from her own careless past).

Just fyi, I taught a brilliant red-headed grade 8 last year whose mom is a professional stunt/ explosives expert for films. Which is pretty cool.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and I forgot...

Since she's always been so eager to fight for justice, Utena would, out in the real world, become a lawyer. However, cold hard life took its toll and she lost some of her innocence and belief in the goodness of people. It changed her. She became cynical and doubts the innocence of her clients, even while she lies to herself and sees herself as their white knight. (Also now a comic page.)
