Hello everybody and welcome to Valentine’s Day or for people like me, Single’s Awareness day. *cries in a corner* So in my loneliness and being the geek I am, I am going to list some of my favorite anime crushes. This is a somewhat embarrassing post for me, but I don’t mind. Just don’t judge me too hard, okay? Oh, and like a very small amount of my posts, this post will actually have numbers and have these characters ranked in some sort of way. How weird is that? It’s a very rare thing for me to rank things, but anime crushes are seriously business alright? This is a very serious and important list….because I said so. YES.
And yeah, I know that my number one choice has already been spoiled because of the 30 day anime challenge thing, but I don’t mind. She’s worth mentioning again and again.
5) Chikako Ubukata from Days
So I haven’t written anything about Days in a while, but I loved that show to death. Some would say that it’s a bad anime, but it just really clicked for me for some reason. Chikako was one of those reasons. She is the soccer manager of Seiseki’s Soccer Team. While she originally comes off as basic of a tsundere as you can get, more layers are added to her as time goes on. She uses her past experiences with failure to push on Tsukamoto and the rest of the soccer team and in the end she does her own thing to help the team move forward. She is pretty attractive and awesome as well. I just wish she wasn’t a high schooler so I didn’t feel so bad about it.
4) Haman Karn from Zeta Gundam
This is the requisite bad girl of the list. She is incredibly attractive, intelligent, an ace pilot, a powerful new type (has psychic powers), and has charisma through the roof. Also, for a Gundam series, she can be considered evil. She leads Neo Zeon, one of the supposed “evil” group of Zeta Gundam because the protagonists how to make a deal with them and they know it’s like making a deal with the devil. She also holds the remaining princess of Zeon, Mineva Zabi, as a present to make her reign more significant and legitimate then it actually is. I admit that I’ve had a secret crush on her for a long time and I’ve never told anybody. Now you all know because it’s out in the open.
3) Balsa from Seirei no Moribito
Balsa is one of the best female characters in anime. At first glance, she comes across as just a warrior woman. She is much more than that. As we get to know more about her in Moribito, we find out how compassionate, intelligent, and just how good of a person she is. She takes this supposed to be dead prince and teaches him about life outside the castle and becomes a mother figure for this lost boy. Balsa is pretty attractive as well. I don’t know what else to say about her, she is just a great and well-rounded person and that’s why I like her.
2) Holo: the wise wolf from Spice and Wolf
I’m just going to say it right now. Holo is one of the best female characters in all of fiction. She is a wolf girl, but she is also incredibly sassy, witty, intelligent, and just full of energy. Starting as the wolf god of farming, she finally went on an adventure with a trader (as in trade goods). She was the student in that situation, but she learned everything incredibly fast and made some killer deals of her own. She also has a face to die for. I should have mentioned that somewhere already, but here it is. The only sin she has is that there is no third season to see her in. That’s just a crime.
1) Akane Tsunemori from Psycho Pass
I’m going to cheat this one by just plugging my other post that I mentioned here in already. Link is right here. Everything that I can say about her is in that post.
So yes, this post was a lot of fun to write. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. Who are some of your anime crushes?
(Note that I don’t like using the term Waifu, because I never understood the waifu thing. That’s just a completely foreign concept to me. )
