Bijin: Starchaser’s 10 Beautiful Anime Women

Howdy, and welcome to the 2-D world of attraction. These women aren’t real so you’ll never be able to speak to them or see them walking down the street. Even so, female anime characters attract a multitude of fans. A great example would be myself, I dream about them and discuss them like they actually exist. I’m not gonna front and act like this isn’t an important list to me, because it is an important list. I want to get right into it so here is the list of beautiful anime women (according to Starchaser), read it all mayne! *Chris Jericho voice*

 

Senjougahara Hitagi

Is it biased to include my waifu on a list of beautiful anime women? Yeah, most likely, but it’s my list for a reason so deal with it! *Batista voice* I’m not sure if there’s anything new I can say about Waifugahara that I haven’t already said before. I mean, besides my brother, I don’t think there’s anyone else I talk about on this blog quite as much and in such a positive manner. She’s a tsundere, kuudere, yandere, smot, loyal, and grateful, I appreciate that. This sharp-tongued, stapler carrying beauty is multifaceted indeed. There’s a number of reasons she’s my waifu, and I think if I actually was in a relationship with her, it’d be the best one I would ever have. If a woman ever took me out on a date to stargaze knowing how much I love astronomy, I’d have to propose to her right away. Oh and she’s a Fullmetal Alchemist fan, she would be my waifu based on that fact alone.

I just realized this, but her birthday is July 7th which makes her zodiac sign Cancer and its symbol is the crab. Waifugahara’s problem/secret involves her being almost weightless because of the heavy crab and some of a Cancer’s strengths are being loyal, dependable and caring while some weaknesses are self-pity and moody. I may be looking too much into it, but if not they gave this character so much depth. It’s no wonder Senjougahara fascination took the anime world by storm.

 

Medaka Kurokami

One of my most cherished things in life is big-breasted anime women so seeing Medaka on this list shouldn’t be too surprising. But if you ask me, she’s such an underrated character, at least when it comes to waifu discussion. She actually reminds me of one of my favorite characters from my childhood, Pajama Sam. What I mean is just like Sam, she is always willing to help those in need. She is the epitome of an overachiever. She’s the student council president (with a 98% approval rating) who excels academically, is athletically gifted, possess unrivaled charisma, and always sees the best in people.

She’s an anime woman whom I consider to be breathtakingly beautiful and it’s a good thing she has no problem showing off her zaftig body, which is actually one of the main reasons I read the manga. One thing I should mention is Medaka is as physically strong as she is gorgeous. According to the Medaka Box wiki, some of her abilities include: “adaptability, agility, analysis, awareness, attractiveness, balance, calculation, charisma, cognition, combat, competence, coordination, deduction, dexterity, durability, eloquence, endurance, flexibility, instinct, intelligence, intuition, invincibility, leadership, memory, meta-luck, mimicry, perception, persuasion, reasoning, reflexes, regeneration, senses, speed, strength, tactics, vitality, and willpower” all at a superhuman level. And the key words I used were “some of her abilities” ’cause she has so much more.

 

Leone 

I don’t know if “beautiful” would be the adjective I would use to describe Leone. To put it bluntly, Leone is the sexiest anime woman my eyeballs have ever seen. Her beautiful smile is able to fill me with rainbows and sunshine despite my stoic disposition. If it weren’t for a certain purple-haired and stapler carrying Senjougahara, well… haha who knows. But I do know if I was a member of Night Raid I’d do everything to protect her smile (and breasts). Anyway, she’s generally a cheerful and laid-back kind of woman who loves alcohol and can handle it better than I ever could. At first glance, you might just think she’s Ms. Fanservice (and she is), but she’s also Ms. Sexy Badass. Allow me to explain.

Leone grew up in the slums, projects, ghetto or whatever you want to call a place that’s a disadvantaged residential area of a city. She was able to become a member of Night Raid because she beat up some asswipes who were abusing children for fun. Leone loves fighting and what better way to participate in her passion than killing people to make the world a better place? Even though she’s a flirtatious, funny and spunky character, she does care about people more than she’s willing to admit. The safety of her friends and accomplishing her missions came first to her, even if it meant putting her own life at risk.

 

Asuka Tenjoin 

Or Alexis Rhodes if you prefer. I did say she was one of the most attractive heroines in anime, and I still think so. Asuka is the top female duelist at Duel Academia from the Obelisk Blue dormitory. The way she’s portrayed in the anime and manga are a bit different, but in both versions she’s a confident, loyal, humble, brave, kind and beautiful young woman. Unlike her Obelisk dueling peers, she does not look down on others or regards herself as better than most people. Besides her skills in card games, she’s also known for her pulchritude in the school and various male characters have tried dueling and using other shenanigans to win her affection. Because there’s no better way to show a woman you like them than playing a children’s card game.

Asuka’s character also appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V. It’s pretty cool to see old school characters in the newer series if you ask me. Asuka’s a determined character throughout. In the anime of GX, she wants to find her lost brother and she’s willing to put herself in harm’s way for her friends. She shows just like in real life, you can’t always win. But even when she loses duels, she never lets her losses affect her in a negative way. Instead, she uses them as motivation to become a better duelist and that’s always an admirable trait to have.

 

Mizore Shirayuki

Mizore could also be on anyone’s “bad ass anime characters” list and is my favorite character from Rosario + Vampire. She’s a yuki-onna (it would literally translate to “snow woman”) who is initially portrayed as lonely, shy, depressed and misunderstood. But thanks to the protagonist, the ice queen was able to be defrosted and she opens up to others. She is often seen stalking and hiding in different locations and the reason she’s almost always seen with a lollipop in her mouth is because it helps maintain her body temperature. I’d like to take the time to say I also like her fashion choices, if “swag” was a thing in anime, she would be one of the characters who helped to innovate it.

She and I have something in common, we both had a crush on a teacher. Unlike her though, mine didn’t try to take advantage of me and I didn’t have to put her in block of ice. She’s madly in love with Tsukune (the protagonist) and wants to have his babies, even if she has to force him. There are a number of running gags involving her such as the previously mentioned hiding and stalking and firing ice projectiles at Tsukune and Moka whenever they get too close to each other. In my (correct) opinion, she gets the best characterization in the manga and her story is pretty heartwarming to say the least (no spoilers).

 

Android 18

Will someone explain to me how someone like Krillin who dies as often as Kenny from South Park got to marry a fine ass woman like Android 18? I’m not one of those people who believe in the “league” horseshit and I don’t want to sound jelly, but I guess there’s no accounting for tastes. 18 was originally an antagonist in DBZ and was created for the sole purpose of killing our hero Goku. While I’m sure Vegeta is stronger than her now, at one point she humbled him by breaking his arm when he was a Super Saiyan (seriously, why does Toriyama have a vendetta against Vegeta?). It’s never shown onscreen, but Krillin and 18 eventually get married and have a daughter named Marron. By this time in the series, 18 has obviously grown to be more compassionate and smiles a lot more.

18 is dedicated to her husband and daughter’s happiness and well being and wants nothing but the best for them. One time she wanted to use the Dragon Balls to wish Krillin the perfect present, but after a talk with Bulma she realized she and her daughter are what made Krillin the happiest. It’s nice to see how she originally went from being a calm and confident villain, to a supportive wife and mother who became a member of the Z Fighters. It’s funny how life works out, even in anime!

 

Dirty Pair (Kei & Yuri)

Oops I’m sorry, ladies, I meant to say Lovely Angels. Yeah, two for one I’m a greedy guy and I honestly couldn’t pick between the two since I’m not partial toward either. Dirty Pair is an old school anime and one I think is highly underrated too. I’m glad I bought the DVDs and watched them with my brother while we were dogsitting at my auntie’s house during Christmas vacation. Kei and Yuri are two smokin’ hot women who basically travel the galaxy and kick ass. They’re part of the 3WA, the World Welfare Works Association which is a corporation that helps solve problems around the universe the police can’t or aren’t able to do. The Lovely Angels are more commonly known as Dirty Pair because even though they’re always successful in accomplishing their missions, there is almost a guarantee to be collateral damage along the way.

“It’s not our fault!” is their catchphrase, and even though it’s true no one believes them. Even though Kei and Yuri are pretty different from each other, it’s entertaining to watch their interactions and banter. Kei is the more hot-headed of the two and Yuri is the more feminine. Kei likes manly men (think The Rock) while Yuri likes cultured men (think Prince). One thing they have in common is they are not bad at their job, so if they’re on the case, you know it’ll be solved. The theme I like that they convey is despite being different from each other, they’re still able to be best friends. According to anime, friendship truly is a wonderful thing to have, even back then.

 

Eleonora Viltaria 


Elen
Elen is incredibly sexy. She’s so sexy in fact, there’s a figure of her I plan on getting. In her series, she’s considered one of the most beautiful women in the kingdom and I would have to concur. She’s got gorgeous crimson eyes, a nice rack, shiny hair, pretty smile and thighs out of this world. She’s a Vanadis, they’re powerful female warriors who act as military officers and nobility to keep the kingdom of Zhcted safe from any enemies. Elen’s duty is to make sure the people are safe from harm by any means necessary. On the battlefield she is strong-willed and gallant and due to this she’s respected by not only her peers, but her adversaries as well. Also she owns a friggin’ dragon!

Despite her courageous personality, she has a fear of insects and I can relate when it comes to cockroaches. She gets jealous when it comes to her love interest when she started developing romantic feelings for him. It’s a contrast from her usual mature self. When she’s not in a battle she likes to take a stroll around town, create wind forces to make herself float in the air and she also likes taking hot baths since it’s shown a number of times in the series.

 

Rias Gremory

It’s kind of funny to think about, but Rias Gremory and Mio Akiyama share the same voice actress or seiyuu if you want to be all pedantic. Anyway, Rias is the main female protagonist of High School DxD and is actually a devil. She’s not portrayed as evil since Rias is kind and deeply cares about those who are close to her. Just like me, she has an affinity for sleeping naked. A little off topic, but if you’re not sleeping naked you really should, there are benefits to doing so. She can be overprotective of her boyfriend and used to get jealous when other women would flirt with him.

Being a devil, Rias is quite powerful. She has the ability to fly and cast magical spells, superhuman strength, endurance, enhanced senses, can see easily in the dark, and according to Rias herself, she can’t get a sunburn. One of her better known attacks is called Extinguished Star which is her one-hit killed technique. One silly technique she has is projecting beams from her breasts to recharge her boyfriend’s energy, but this causes her breasts to temporarily shrink in size. She’s one devil I wouldn’t mind making a deal with (I hope the deal would involve a lot of sex).

 

Mikasa Ackerman 

Attack on Titan is quite the exhilarating anime and Mikasa is one of the reasons. From an early age, she was exposed to some of the harsh realities of the world when criminals broke into her house and killed her parents and then tried to sell her into slavery. Despite her traumatic upbringing with the murder of her parents, Mikasa is one of the most well rounded characters when it comes to intelligence and fighting. Her outlook on life is somewhat similar to my own, this world we live in is so broken and yet it’s also so beautiful. Mikasa is physically fit and muscular, some anime women have boobs of steel while Mikasa has abs of steel. Not the complacent type, she’s constantly training to better herself and will do anything to protect her friends and comrades.

She’s very protective of her adoptive brother Eren whom she grew up with after the killing of her parents. She can be seen as the more rational and level-headed of the two. While Eren relies more on raw emotion, Mikasa can be seen as more calculating when making decisions. She’s usually seen as stoic and impassive, but there are times when she shows emotion, mostly when it involves Eren. The sole reason she enlisted in the military was to keep an eye on Eren, she’s quite the loyal one and her bond with him is one of her defining traits.

 

And that’s my list. Did I miss any of your waifus, reader? I probably did, but if so, you can always comment and let me know which anime women you think are beautiful. I just hope this top 10 will give you a glimpse of the many beautiful women anime has to offer. Even though they don’t exist y’know.

20 Things I’d like to Do in My Twenties

20 Things I’d like to Do in My Twenties

There are things I have to do, things I have to understand and things I have to get. Some are easier than others, but the good news is they’re all within reach. I’m going to make my 20s a decade to remember!

 

1. Go to Japan

I mean, I speak Japanese so might as well right? I’ve heard Japan is a lot of fun and well worth the experience.

 

2. Travel Europe

I have a best friend who lives in Germany whom I haven’t seen in almost a decade so I’d like to do this with him. Even though I’ve already been to most of the European countries, there are some I haven’t and I think adding the element of my best friend would make my time in those countries memorable (for better or worse lol).

 

3. Become a tutor

I’ve told my brother if I don’t get a job for the summer, then I’ll apply to become a tutor in December. More specifically an Anatomy & Physiology tutor. If I can, I’d also like to become a Chemistry or Physics tutor. I know I said I want to be a science communicator and this can become my first step in doing exactly that.

 

4. Learn more languages 

If Japanese taught me anything, it taught me learning a new language is hard, but it’s highly rewarding. German and French are on my list for being fluent. Greek, Russian, Korean, Spanish and Italian are languages I just want to have working knowledge in.

 

5. Spend time with my friends 

I learned something from a recent conversation with my brother and sister. I thought it was common for people to still be friends with their friends from high school. Apparently, it is not. I’m a junior at my university and I notice life is speeding past me. As a vicenarian, some things are changing drastically. I can’t imagine things slowing down once I graduate. I plan on moving to a brand new place in this city. But no matter what happens, spending time with friends whom I care about is very important.

 

6. Do something crazy

I’ve listed some crazy stuff on my bucket list. When I bungee jump I’ll make sure to upload a video on the internet and edit it to include the song “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” by Kanye West.

 

7. Train for a triathlon 

Sounds fun right? I feel like I need the lungs of a horse to compete in one though.

 

8. Volunteer 

Okay, I do this now, but I want to keep doing this as long as I can. There are a spate of wonderful organizations out there who could use my time and help!

 

9. Go offline for a week

Will I be able to only use my cell phone to call/text people and keep my laptop closed for 7 days?

 

10. Take a dance class

I only know a few dance moves. 😦

 

11. Take an American road trip 

There are 50 states in this country and I’ve only been to five of them (Hawaii, Texas, Georgia, New York and Florida). It’s not often I can do something as insanely cool as road tripping across the U-S of A. It can teach me a lot about myself. I can also do what I want, when I want to. I can visit new places on my own time frame as well. And to be honest, I want to know what it’s like to stay in a hotel again lol.

 

12. Make drawings for my brother, sister and aunt.

My brother reads this blog so no spoilers. Another reason I want to draw well is because I will then be able to use my talent not only to draw for myself, but for others as well.

 

13. Start a vlog 

A vlog can be another great way to get my voice heard.

 

14. Join a team

There are plenty of adult sports teams I can join. My mind is on finding a fun dodge ball team though. I can imagine it being more intense than a Smash Bros. tournament match.

 

15. Find my own place 

I can’t live in this dorm room forever y’know. It’s a great step toward independence and being able to go all out on decorations is enough to get me excited considering I have a good amount of anime merchandise to display.

 

16. Make friends with my neighbors 

According to those Myers Briggs tests, I’m an ENFP which means I’m an extrovert by nature. I’m also sociable so I like meeting new people and making connections with them. Since most people aren’t friends with the people from their high school, I’m sure most people aren’t friends with their neighbors or even know who they are. Considering the type of property I want to live on, meeting my neighbors will be easy.

 

17. Read the letter I wrote to myself

I wrote a letter to myself when I was 18. I can’t read it until I’m 28 and I don’t remember what I wrote besides the “Dear Me”. I can tell it’ll be a nice little memoir and I’m sure I’ll be surprised what my past self had to say and what he expected out of me.

 

18. Try a different hairstyle/cut

I remember I tried an “experiment” to see if I could get an afro. I was able to, but I eventually shaved my head. Now I want to see if there are any other hairstyles I could rock. Out of respect for Prince and my waifu Senjougahara, I plan on dyeing my hair purple. It won’t be a different hairstyle, but it’ll be a great start.

 

19. Learn more astronomy

“It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience” – Carl Sagan

While I do this on my own sometimes, I also want to take a class on the subject. Learning about space is an awesome experience. Looking up into the night sky and seeing all of the stars is humbling and makes me forget my worldly problems. This spiritual sensation only becomes more powerful once I know exactly what I’m looking at.

 

20. Stay happy

Let’s end this post on a high note. I’m sure I’ve already talked about my depression and during that time, being happy seemed like an alien concept. A lot can happen in my twenties, but I have to make sure to be able to smile through it all. Nobody is jolly or elated all the time, but I know I’m definitely more fulfilled/fortunate than others. I’m able to look at myself in the mirror and be confident to know I’m true to myself and can safely say I’m happy. So I’m going to do everything I can to make sure this state I’m in right now is a constant one.

 

 

Anime Characters That Ought to Be Killed

Now for those of you who read my posts you may have noticed one of the things I like to do is talk about anime. It’s not the only thing I talk about on here, but it’s a big one. Another thing I like to do from time to time is be negative and this is obviously one of those times. This post is fairly simple and I called it: “Anime Characters That Ought to Be Killed”.

Note: While I genuinely dislike every single character I listed, this post was made to be a comedy and thus shouldn’t be taken TOO seriously. The reason I’m typing this is for you anime nerds. Because if your favorite character is on this list, hopefully this little note should prevent you from bitching. Okay? Okay! You can expect spoilers here.

 

Honorable/Obvious Mention: Shou Tucker


I’m going to exclude this POS from the list because he would be an obvious choice. Too obvious of a choice. Indeed, just about any Fullmetal Alchemist fan hates his guts and I’m one of them. He used his own wife, daughter and dog to keep his job, I don’t think there’s anything else I need to say.

 

Sugou Nobuyuki


Here’s one anime character that deserves to ride his bicycle, have the wheel fall off and then proceed to tumble down a cliff and have his whole body explode for no reason. One of the biggest reasons I’m not a fan of Sword Art Online is because of this guy. I used to call him “butterfly guy” before I just Googled his name. I really don’t care for villains that give a “Hahahahaha! I’m evil just because I’m evil!” vibe. Can’t antagonists have disagreeable, but at least somewhat understandable reasons for doing what they do? His goal is to molest a pretty young woman who’s in a coma. That over obtaining money, which I would assume is in the millions. Yeah, yeah, Asuna’s a fine piece of ass (even though her character sucks, but at least she’s nice to look at), but most guys wouldn’t mind being millionaires if given the chance. It’s also funny that Asuna’s parents were planning to have her marry the guy. I mean, she was in a coma for Ganesha sake! Adding insult to injury, his incompetence is so laughable he’s literally a disgrace to all fictional villains everywhere.

 

Kirito


Here’s another anime character that should be locked in a portable toilet while someone kicks it down a high hill with someone else at the end of the hill waiting to set it on fire. Most watchers have accused Kirito of being a “Gary Stu” and while I can see their reasons for labeling him as one, he’s more of a “depressed bitch” if you asked me. The first and second season have tried (and failed) to create trauma for the character, but it just comes off as a corny attempt to make him a darker character. His supposed traumas are never explored in any depth and are forgotten about as quickly as they are mentioned. Kirito also suffers from having no personality whatsoever. What I mean by this is the author doesn’t seem to know what they want Kirito to be. Is he a dark anti-hero or a goofball who happens to be great at video games? I don’t know. I also remember some of Kirito’s abilities being completely forgotten later on. What happened to the health recovery thingy which would have come in handy a number of times? It’s pretty dumb he has a girlfriend (Asuna) and I’m sure by the time the events of Sword Art Online II start to unfold they had to have been dating for at least a couple of years. Yet, they don’t dare to show physical affection in the real world. They’ve kissed and even had a virtual family in Sword Art Online so why are they unable or unwilling to do it in real life? To talk about SAO is to talk about its flaws and Kirito is one of them.

 

Momo Deviluke


The first (but not last) female character who should be trapped upside down in a rolled-up gym mat at her high school gymnasium. Pink is the color of life, live forever. Unfortunately, Charles Hamilton’s song about my favorite color can’t save Momo from being on this list. This hoe started out alright, she was nothing special from them the get-go, but she got progressively annoying as the series went on. Also, cannot stand clingy bitches. All she really wants to do is bang the main protagonist, I’m not saying wanting to have sex with someone is a bad thing, but her “Harem Plan” comes off as self serving and Based God knows how I feel about self serving pricks. I usually don’t mind people having their favorite stuff and all, but if Momo is your favorite girl or waifu, you’re on some whack sauce!

 

Kirino and Kyouske


True love has never been so disgusting. A duo of grade A morons who deserve to be eaten alive by Pennywise the Clown. Do I dislike Kirino because I’m on #TeamRuri? Maybe. I can’t ignore my possible bias. Honestly, the only reason both are on here is because of the poorly written ending. Personally, I don’t care for incest, I think it’s weird (not the good kind of weird, mind you), but it doesn’t disturb me in the least. Anyone remember the blog post I did about burning bridges? Kyouske does exactly that with every girl, so he can marry his sister? Okay, fine. But then they both decide not to pursue a relationship and go back to being “normal siblings”. So now we’re back to where we started, but worse because now Kyouske can’t repair his relationships. Congrats! It was also Kirino who had the bright idea of going back to “normal siblings” after the fiasco. So what was the point of it all?

 

Takao Kasuga


I saved the best (or is it worst?) for last. Here’s a character that deserves to be beaten with a sledgehammer and left bleeding in the moonlight. An isolated teenager who bemoans the fact his peers and friends aren’t into French literature or something of that nature. Meh, if you want to feel like an isolated teenager just be Chris (Everybody Hates Chris) who went to an all white school. Anyway, he has a crush on Saeki and considers her to be his “femme fatale”. One day, Kasuga decides to impulsively steal Saeki’s gym clothes and bring them home, but he is caught by the antisocial stalker and outcast named Nakamura. Kasuga feels guilty over stealing the underwear and allows himself to be blackmailed by Nakamura and is forced to do outrageous deeds in order to prevent Saeki from finding out. Because the events of the story are coming back to me as I’m typing this, the plot starts to feel more like a comedy, but tries to portray itself as serious business! Kasuga’s guilt over stealing panties, but acts like he just murdered Saeki’s family is so absurd it is impossible to take seriously! Kasuga is easy to manipulate, emotionally unstable and weak minded. Because of this it’s easy for Nakamura or anyone to take full advantage of him.

 

And this is my list of anime characters that ought to be killed. As you can see I’m not a really hateful person so there’s not a lot of anime characters I dislike. As great as anime can be, there have been a fair share of terrible anime characters. There are other characters that are universally hated that didn’t make my list (Sakura, Nina Einstein, Near etc.), but I do hope you found this list to be entertaining or at least readable lol.
