It’s week #42 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’s edition is the gorgeous green-haired “spirit medium” with a bit of a drinking problem, from Punch Line, it’s Rabura Chichibu.
Going completely off memory here (no help from Wikis or anything), Rabura plays very much the sexy older woman who lives next door role. She’s quite charming, can turn on the sexy side with a flip of the switch, she comes off like that cool, hot girl you’d totally want to have a beer with. Which is great because she sure loves to drink! She’s always at an emotional high, when she’s happy, she’s really happy, when she’s mad, she’s kicking doors down and when she’s sad, she’s flooding the building. She appears to have a materialistic desire as she’s constantly trying to either nail down a rich boy or doing some ‘get rich quick’ scheme. Lastly, she comes as a friend who wants to help and is happy to help, but doesn’t prioritize it at the very top.
I suppose the answer’s obvious at this point, but here’s my call on Rabura:
♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠
I’ll fully admit that beyond her being the “hot girl” character on the show, I really didn’t care for Rabura. Her character just came off to me as either bitchy or just over-the-top levels of bad. It’s so hard to nail down where she’s being genuine and when she’s putting on the act and when I can’t identify who she really is, it makes it really hard to come to any other decision. She’s a pretty face, a smoking hot body and I’m honestly not sure there’s much else about her that remotely piques my interest.
Speaking of hot bodies, next up is the ‘perfect’ female member of Cerberus whose butt apparently attracts all cameras, from the Mass Effect series, it’s Miranda Lawson.
Miranda starts off as a classic sexy ice queen kind of character when she’s introduced in the second Mass Effect game. She’s a tough, cold-hearted Cerberus agent more than okay with putting a bullet in someone’s head when she has to. As we start to talk with her however, while she doesn’t really remove the reserved, distant side of her, she peels back the layers of her tough agent demeanor and shows us that there is a normal girl underneath. Well, as normal as a girl can get when your father spent a ton of money making you the ‘perfect woman’. As she tells us, she was created to be perfect, both in mind and (especially) body. It’s a sticking point to her in a way, as while she enjoys being as good as she is, at the same time it bothers her because even though it’s been very beneficial to her, she was essentially forced into it.
As the series goes on, Miranda doesn’t change too too much, she keeps that silent, but deadly demeanor all throughout the series, the only thing that changes is really once you start a romantic relationship with her. She still doesn’t open up too much, but she does start to be a little more aggressive when it comes to physical contact, as she tells Shepard at one point that she wouldn’t mind if he ‘admired her body’, not to mention she pretty much sets you up to go into the engine room and start her sex scene in the game. It seems like she’s the kind of girl that once she has eyes on someone, she’s not playing around.
So, here’s my call on Miranda:
♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠
Out of all the female characters in Mass Effect, Miranda may just be the one I enjoyed the least. She’s certainly one of the hottest in the series, but her personality for me is just so easy to either hate or just be indifferent to. I don’t feel like there’s any sort of a happy personality with her, certainly not upbeat and that’s a big red flag for me. She’s not even the monotone-speaking girl who at times can break that character and become adorable, Miranda literally holds that partially lifeless character the entire game. The only difference is that when you try to romance her, she gets aggressive and shows you her bra. Whoopty-freaking-doo.
Finishing off this week is the rescued girl who apparently at a very young age is already more than happy to walk around in a garter belt, from School-Live!, it’s Miki Naoki.
Before being found by the girls, Miki shows that she is a very strong young girl, even after her best friend left their isolated room and never came back. She did eventually break down at times and really become an emotional wreck, but even then she was able to convince herself to stay where she was, not even just because it was safe, but because she had more than enough supplies to survive for a long period of time. It shows that even in dire straits, she’s still very intelligent and has the correct set of instincts.
Upon being found by the girls, Miki once again shows her strength and survival instincts when she watches Yuki going through her delusions. While she is a bit too harsh on the other two girls for letting Yuki be the psychological mindfuck she was, Miki is clearly trying to protect herself and those around her, because she knows that Yuki poses a risk to their safety. Over time, she comes to accept what’s going on, but still is very much staying aware of what’s going on.
Outside of the story, Miki’s personality is very typical for a young Japanese girl. She’s very polite, serious, a little mature and yet still very girly as well. Over the series, she becomes a major support to the other girls and her self-confidence raises throughout the show, far more comfortable in her abilities and herself overall.
Alrighty, here’s my call on Miki:
♥ WAIFU ♥
I didn’t know going in what I was going to pick with Miki. In fact other than one of the girls in the entire show, I don’t know what I’d do with any of them from the top of my head. But after writing this out, the more I think about it, the more I’m almost positive that this girl, especially after she grows up will become one hell of a phenomenal woman. She’s already an extremely strong and intelligent girl at her young age now, who knows what she’ll pick up in let’s say another 10 years? She has the kind, polite and caring attitude to be that “perfect waifu”, but at the same time has that vulnerable, adorable, girly side of her that offsets the seriousness and over-politeness and gives her a quirky side as well. I’d just want her to knock it off with the garter belts, I really don’t understand what’s so attractive about them…
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.
