It’s week #25 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!
Kicking off this week is “The Scandalous Superstar Idol” from the Persona 4 series of games. Rise Kujikawa among many things, is a “dangerous girl” as said by Chie during the original game. Why is that? Because in an average harem, she’s the only one willing to profess her love and flirt with the protagonist from day one, without hesitation. She is an extremely bold girl, more than willing to show herself off to people, especially the boy she’s trying to court. She’s certainly a very naughty girl, as we see from her choices in attire (especially her swimwear) and her Shadow in her respective dungeon.
Aside from her naughty personality, Rise displays further tendencies that throw her to the forefront, which isn’t all that shocking considering she’s an idol. She’s very outgoing, cheerful as hell and constantly flaunts herself like the cutie she is. She’s aware of how pretty she is and dresses and acts accordingly. She does have a very sweet side deep down, but the majority of her personality is this idol-like over-exaggeration. Other exaggerations include her dramatic crying sessions and her childish, possessive nature, as during the game she does tell the protagonist he shouldn’t be calling other girls cute.
Anyways, here’s my call on Rise:
♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠
I think there is certainly some good with Rise, but unfortunately her possessive nature and her extremely bold nature really make her a dangerous girl to have a long-standing relationship with. She’s definitely the kind of girl that will constantly demand your attention, will get upset if she thinks you’re checking out another girl and many other negatives that you don’t need in a relationship. Lastly, there’s a hidden truth to the danger of a relationship with Rise: idols aren’t allowed to have relationships. Seriously, look up what’s happened to idols who are caught having a boyfriend, it’s not good. So wanting to be around Rise a lot wouldn’t be good for you and especially for her. The amount of media attention and scrutiny isn’t worth it, especially not with a personality like Rise has.
We’ve gone through a number of Mass Effect characters already, so next up is everyone’s favourite Quarian. Obviously being an alien and all, setting this is the present day will be difficult so the only thing we can really do is make the assumption that recently our planet has been visited by aliens for the first time (to public knowledge) and the Quarians are that race.
Tali is an absolute delight of a young woman. She’s a strong girl, loyal, putting her race at the forefront, more than willing to put her life in all kinds of danger if it means helping her race, who are under tough times after being kicked from their homeworld. Her personality is a bit of a mixed bag, she’s easily angered, especially when fixing tech and it doesn’t go her way, but the more notable part of her personality is her more shy, reserved side, especially if she falls in love with the protagonist. In fact, if not for the ship’s yeoman (Kelly Chambers), the potential of a romance with Tali never would’ve taken place, as Tali never would’ve found the words or the time to tell the protagonist.
Aside from that, Tali has a hidden sense of humour that comes out of nowhere at times. Sometimes it’s intentional, sometimes it’s not. When she’s happy, she’s infectious, when she’s depressed, you just want to give her the biggest hug possible.
I’ve got nothing else from the top of my head on Tali, so let’s get to my decision on her:
♥ WAIFU ♥
It’ll be very dangerous to have a relationship with Tali. If you’ve played the series, you know that Quarians’ immune systems are very weak, so their suits keep them sanitized from the outside world, so the risk of disease and death from physical contact like say, oh I don’t know…SEX! That would be very dangerous to Tali’s health, but as we see in the game, while ‘first contact’ (couldn’t help the bad pun) results in her getting rather sick, over time she adapts to Shepard and it isn’t so much of a worry. The other risk is from let’s be honest, a societal view. We still live in an age where people take issue with different coloured humans dating each other, imagine the reaction from people knowing a human is dating a member of a literal different race. But in the end, for someone like Tali, the risk is worth it. She’s an amazing woman, everything you could want in a significant other. Also, you’ll never have to worry about technical issues again, she’ll fix that shit in a jiffy!
This android from Demon King Daimao is going to need some literal work to fit into our world, after all we’re not quite at that point yet in technology. As much as some are hoping that one day androids will be created with similar structures to humans in every (and I mean every) way, but I’d prefer that this girl would be a fellow human being above all else.
Korone is an interesting case, because she’s one of those anime characters that is almost void of a personality and yet that makes her so interesting. While 99% of the time she is this emotionless, expressionless, calm girl, there is a sense of curiosity to her that she doesn’t do the greatest job of hiding when it’s active. When she finds someone who piques that curiosity of hers however, that percentage drops further as she starts to display more normal tendencies. She loves to tease people she’s close to and it gets worse (or better depending on how you feel about it) when she has feelings for you as well.
Throughout the show, Korone is an extremely perverted girl, especially as an android. She constantly tries to seduce and tease the protagonist, even before being ordered to do so by those who employ her. She will often flash her panties, say a ton of dirty things and try to get into the bed of whoever she’s seducing, even when told no. This isn’t limited to one person either, she also messes with the girls around the protagonist as well, going as far as pulling down Junko’s swimsuit to expose her chest.
Anyways, here’s my call on Korone:
♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦
I don’t think with this majority emotionless personality that I’d be able to be around Korone every single day, but there’s certainly enough enjoyment and humour with her that I don’t think I’d want to ignore her either. She seems like a very fun person to be around, you just have to be prepared to avert your gaze constantly if there’s another girl with her, or if it gets really bad, prepared to duck and cover. Either way, I think Korone’s a girl I could have as a friend and see once in a while.
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.
