It’s week #34 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 tomboyish childhood friend of the main protagonist of the very lifely, yet extremely depressing anime Your Lie in April. The show is well known for being a very sad and depressing story, especially with the main character, Kousei, but Tsubaki manages to be a ray of light along with Kaori when the show is at its worst.
We see from how she first became a childhood friend of Kousei’s, that Tsubaki was and always has been one of the most selfless, most caring individuals. When no one paid attention to him, she was always there for him, helping him through the troubles of his mother’s very strict piano scheduling. The same goes for her other friends, she’s always looking out for those who are close to her, though there are some who say she’s a little over-protective of those friends.
On her own, Tsubaki is a very outgoing, kind and caring girl with a very tomboyish personality, heavily into sports and a bit punchy. She is known for having a bit of a short fuse and isn’t all that hesitant to give you a little smack if you piss her off. Though when it comes to more personal emotions, she’s a little oblivious to them, as throughout the show she continually either doesn’t notice or denies the feelings she definitely has for Kousei. She also has a bad tendency to hide her emotions when they’re at their worst, often having emotional outbursts because she just can’t hold them in any longer.
All right, that’s all for Tsubaki, here’s my call on her:
♥ WAIFU ♥
While yes, Tsubaki struggles with her emotions, in particular discovering and admitting her feelings, assuming that she has done so and we’re together, I can see a long-term relationship with her going very smoothly. She’s such a kind girl, full of life and come on, I love me some tomboys. It’s just such a perfect match with me! Though I just gotta pay more attention to what I say, since she does get a little punchy.
Next up is the teacher and fellow scuba diver of the main characters in the recently released anime series Amanchu!
While most teachers in anime tend to be either super serious, super nice or super weird, Mato finds herself in her own unique spot where she’s super energetic, very lively, encouraging, helpful and all that lovely jazz, yet she’s also the kind of person who won’t take shit from her students and will punish them accordingly, as she does to Hikari constantly.
Out of school, she’s even more lively, a very free-spirited woman, always looking for something to keep her busy and excited. But for the couple students in the Diving Club, she makes time for them and is more than willing to help them out with anything they need, whether it’s diving related or personal stuff. She’s almost like an older sister to the girls throughout the show.
So, here’s my call on Mato:
♥ WAIFU ♥
This was an easy call for me, while I’m not too big into scuba diving, Mato the person is such a fantastic person and seems like an absolute joy to hang around. She’s so full of life and yet seems so grounded, she’s got a great head on her shoulders. When I look at Mato, I see someone that every day I can come home to, sit down next to her on the couch, watch something or play something and just talk and talk and talk. And that is the perfect kind of girl for me.
Finishing off this week is everyone’s favourite Japanese girl with a penchant for kleptomania, Mass Effect’s Kasumi Goto.
Now obviously aside from the whole “in space” thing, we have to make the assumption here that in order for Kasumi to be an option she either has to have never had her relationship with Keiji, or has moved on from him. Otherwise this does not work at all.
Kasumi aside from her master thief nature is an absolute treat to be around. She’s very entertaining, very casual when she speaks, can turn on the seriousness when she has to, but she’s generally very easy-going. Because of her work and skills though, she is one of the most attentive characters I have ever seen in gaming. Depending on what you do throughout the game, she comments on it in a very blunt fashion and this includes feelings and relationships that build without anyone else noticing (in fact, she’s the only one aside from Kelly Chambers who notices the change in Samara if you actually picked Morinth over her) and does it in a very respectable and honest manner.
When it comes to the few possessions she actually has, as she’s constantly on the move, she’ll keep them at arm’s reach and with a blade in hand for when anyone gets too close. Anything she cares about she will protect with her life, no hesitation whatsoever. She also can carry quite the grudge and is very vengeful as we see during her loyalty mission in Mass Effect 2. But in the end, the Kasumi you would see during a “normal, everyday life” is much more calm, energetic and just beautiful.
So here’s my call on Kasumi:
♥ WAIFU ♥
I floated between this and the middle tier again and again, mainly because of her skill set and her work, assuming she would still be a thief of sorts in the real world. It’s so risky to be around her, but if there was a way to make it work, Kasumi is one of the few that would be worth the risk. There are few characters in gaming and anime that I have seen who display such an attentive and honest personality and yet she has that along with an entertaining, upbeat personality as well. It’s impossible not to love her.
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.
