It’s week #21 of Waifu, Friend With Benefits or One-Night Stand!
For those new to the article, this is not a post that talks about the “fuckability” of three randomly selected female characters from various anime and video games. I’m already attracted to them, it’s to be implied that I would share a bed with them already. What this article is meant to do, is go through their personalities, interests, anything pertinent to answering the question if they’re a one-time only, a friend that I might accept the occasional booty call from, or someone I would absolutely spend the rest of my life with.
So without further to do, let’s meet this week’s contestants!
Only in anime can a woman who looks like she’s in her 30s at the least still be only 22 years young. When I first watched Gargantia, I was happy to see a girl like Ridget, thinking that finally there’s a really beautiful woman who’s not under the age of 21. I just didn’t realize that by not under 21, that meant one year older.
Either way, the Overseer and later on, Fleet Commander is your typical officer character. She’s very calm unless it’s time to be serious, to which she turns that up full blast. The majority of the time we see Ridget, she’s pretty much a super serious workhorse and you’re not breaking her out of that mode. And it’s because of that part of her personality that leads to most generally keeping their distance from her.
However, as we see a couple of times in the show, especially in Episode 5 when the fleet takes a break and it’s swimsuit time, Ridget does have a more laid back side. She shows up, everyone thinking she was going to be pissed when everyone else was having a fun time and then she suddenly strips off her clothes, revealing what Bellows calls a sexy one-piece swimsuit. She then kicks back and we see a little bit of the more chill side of Ridget, where it’s plainly obvious that being in such an important role pretty much whenever she’s awake, she’s always hoping for just a little time to unwind.
Alrighty, here’s my call on Ridget:
♥ WAIFU ♥
You’ve gotta remember that the general reason why Ridget is so unapproachable is due to her role in the series and that role only exists based on the situation the show puts all the characters in. It’s arguable to say that if Ridget was living a normal life, that side of her would not be a prevalent. Even assuming she’d take a military position where she was that super serious all the time, once she’d return home for an extended period of time, I can’t imagine her displaying any other side of herself than her more chill side where she just wants to unwind. That side is really attractive to me, she’s pretty much a very intelligent girl who just wants to enjoy herself when she’s not working in an environment where she cannot falter. She’s also super cute when you get her all blushy and embarrassed.
A side character in the well…extremely sexual Freezing series, Attia is the girl known as the “Manipulative Schemer”, due to her constantly meddling with people’s minds, getting other girls to attack each other. She definitely comes off as a dangerous girl and one not to be trusted, unless you’re the one person she’s loyal too, then she’ll do whatever it takes to accomplish the task you give her.
And then since Freezing is an ecchi anime, there’s the silly stuff. She’s clearly got some weird fetishes, as it’s rumoured that she has an odd fetish for “clothes that turn invisible under light”. But of course, it wouldn’t be right without Attia having a short fuse, especially when it comes to people “insulting” her because of her bust size, as she actually hides her small breasts with a breast pad to make it look like she has a lot more than she actually has.
Well, that’s all I have on Attia, so here’s my call:
♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠
A simple case of not being able to trust this girl, especially with her innate talent in manipulating people, even if her personality was a lot better than how I view it as, Attia still would fall into this category, because who’s to say she wouldn’t turn on me at a moment’s notice? She’s certainly a very pretty girl (since bust size doesn’t really affect my opinion much on girls, especially those with smaller breasts), but when I cannot trust this girl, a relationship, even a friendship doesn’t seem like the logical option here.
Thank god I don’t have to worry about the “little sister” stuff with Kirino from Oreimo, that would make this far more complicated to go through. But just to brush up her story with you guys, she’s a younger sister of the main character and she has a hidden love for little sister content, including adult games that feature said little sisters in pornographic scenes. Thankfully, since I’m not her older brother, the chances of me being exposed to this content and her love for it are very slim.
The side that she shows to those outside of her older brother are a mixture of the classic tsundere attitude (which is arguable that she only displays this with her brother anyway) and her much more “perfect girl” side where she’s very friendly and cheerful. She’s also quite the over-achiever outside of her otaku secret at home, she’s got above-average grades, she’s great at sports, she’s even got a part-time job as a fashion model, where she clearly developed her extremely happy side. She’s also a bit of a perfectionist, which leads to her becoming very passive and distant when she encounters situations where the odds of her coming out on top are slim to none.
Okay! Here’s my call on Kirino:
♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦
Kirino is a mixed bag with me, there are things about her I really like and things about her that I really worry about. Had I put a real emphasis on her little sister perversions, I might have leaned more towards the path I only have to travel on once, but since I wasn’t putting too much emphasis on it, I decided on the middle ground. When Kirino is around everyone else outside of her brother and one of her otaku friends, Ruri, she’s very cheerful, a blast to talk with and an all-around enjoyable person to hang out with. I just have to hope she doesn’t go into a frenzy talking about Stardust Witch Meruru, otherwise I may have to run like hell.
So that’s this week’s edition of Waifu, FWB, or One-Night Stand, hope you enjoyed it! Leave any comments you’ve got below, whether it’s your own choices between the three or maybe I’m missing something that could’ve turned the tide on my decision with any one of these girls.
