There is a lot of crossover when it comes to "nerd" culture. Anime fans are just as likely to be obsessed with superheroes, magic, and fantasy as any other fan. When it comes to Harry Potter, one of the world's biggest franchises, almost everyone is obsessed with it, including anime fans.
With that obsession comes a need to categorize everyone into their Hogwarts House, including anime fans' favorite characters. Most anime characters may find themselves put into houses like Slytherin and Gryffindor, but when it comes to shojo geniuses, a house like Ravenclaw, which is about creativity, intelligence, and wit, is a better fit.
