So here I go again through that excruciating pain of having to choose one favourite character.
As usual, the nominees:
夏目 玲子 (Natsume Reiko) (夏目友人帳 – Natsume’s Book of Friends) – have to love how unscrupulous she was with the spirits. Of course, she also seemed thoughtful…
閻魔 あい (Enma Ai) (地獄少女 – Hell Girl) – considering what she’s been through, I’m amazed she can keep going. I admire her a lot for how she acts and how she dealt with her past.
時雨 亜沙 (Shigure Asa) (Shuffle!) – for she is thoughtful, a little tomboyish, intelligent, caring and wants to be cheerful all the time so as not to worry others but more importantly, it seems to me because she wants to really love life.
千反田 える (Chitanda Eru) (氷菓 – Hyouka) – obviously because of how curious she is and also… for her ways and means.
楪 いのり (Yuzuriha Inori) (Guilty Crown) – sometimes one does not need a reason for liking or loving something or someone. For me, this is one of those times. I just love her a lot.
千鳥 かなめ (Chidori Kaname) (Full Metal Panic!) – she’s a tomboy alright; but she’s also thoughtful and caring and… one of my friends used to call me Kaname because of the many aspects in which I resemble her.
見崎 鳴 (Misaki Mei) (Another) – I just love the way she copes with the way people act around her. That, and we have the same hairstyle.
古河 渚 (Furukawa Nagisa) (Clannad) – there’s a lot of character development there, and I really can’t stress enough how much she means to me.
松前 緒花 (Matsumae Ohana) (花咲くいろは – The Colours of Blooming) – simply can’t not love how she takes the opportunities she’s given, how she copes with the hardships of life and how cheerful a person she is.
朽木 ルキア (Kuchiki Rukia) (Bleach) – I simply love her. Because she’s Rukia. Enough said.
セイバー (Saber) (Fate/stay night) – I love her not only for how she’s in f/sn (I didn’t have the patience to list all the productions she is in), but for how she is in general. She’s always going to be one of my favourite characters simply because she’s Saber.
両儀式 (Ryōgi Shiki) (空の境界 – Boundary of Emptiness) – again, I have said more than enough about her in the critique which I wrote up for the anime. I can’t put it into words any more than I have already – she just means a lot to me – and that is a bloody understatement!
火野 レイ (Hino Rei) (a.k.a. Sailor Mars from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon) – she’s been one of my heroes ever since I have first seen the anime. I have already mentioned how much it all means to me.
シャナ (Shana, a.k.a. 「炎髪灼眼の討ち手」“Flame-Haired Red-Hot-Eyed Hunter”) (灼眼のシャナ – Shakugan no Shana) – she loves melon pan, she’s a tsundere and she’s red-haired – do I need any more reasons?!
苗木野 そら (Naegino Sora) (Kaleido Star) – she’s taught me the meaning of stuff like ‘never give up on your dreams; no matter how hard it is, when you fall just get back up again; always keep moving forward’.
I’m not entirely sure whether it is harder for me to choose my favourite female anime character or my favourite male anime character, but for now I’d say it was just as difficult. My favourite female character is 両儀式 (Ryōgi Shiki) (空の境界 – Boundary of Emptiness).
There’s no other one here. As I said in my previous post, I will always love all my favourite characters, but here she wins hands down.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
