It’s week #54 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, we’ve got the salvage team leader who don’t take shit from anybody. From Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, it’s Bellows!
Yeah, that’s her real name in the series. I know, it’s weird, hell they’ve got a girl named “Melty” in that show. Anyways, Bellows is a tough, hard-nosed woman who leads a salvage team that finds old technology in the sea below. She’s your typical badass girl who doesn’t have time for bullshit, she’s straight to the point, knows what she wants and goes and gets it, not wasting valuable time hesitating or thinking about it. I can only imagine how she’d be if she had combat training, she’d be a scary girl that you wouldn’t want to mess with!
But as a person behind that tough tomboyish exterior, there’s a really kind and caring girl underneath. She acts around others almost like a big sister, keeping people around her safe, offering good advice to help them out and taking action to keep everyone in the best of spirits. She can cheer you up, get you moving and always be available as an ear when needed. She’s actually wiser than her age suggests, she’s not a dumb one, she’s got quite the brain to her.
So here’s my call on Bellows:
♥ WAIFU ♥
Bellows is so perfect for me. She’s a strong, independent girl, she’s got a sense of humour, talks very casually and candidly and she’s not one to deal with or dwell on bullshit. She’s also good with her hands as a mechanic, which is great for me cause I’m shit at most mechanical things, I’m a computer guy. And of course, she’s a gorgeous tomboy kind of girl, what isn’t there for me to love about Bellows?!
Next up is the future-seeing witch who shuts herself in a room to avoid all human attention. From Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, it’s Maria Sarushima.
It’s quite interesting that she shuts herself away from people when in actuality she’s probably one of the more casual and over-the-top flirty girls we’ve had on this list. Granted, there’s a reason for why this generally popular girl suddenly shut herself away, but that’s not why we’re here. Like I said, she’s quite the flirt, giving tons of suggestive comments and is more than happy to give all the hugs (and sometimes kisses) to people she wants to mess with. But all in all, she’s just an overly friendly girl who enjoys being around people when there aren’t events preventing her from doing so.
I’ve got not much else on Maria, she’s one of the last witches to really appear in the show, so I’ll just go straight to my call on her:
♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦
It feels like we’ve been through these kinds of characters a ton now in the year and change since starting this series of articles. I’ll say it once again, a friendly, flirty girl will automatically avoid the lowest tier, but it will take something unique and special to pull her out of the middle tier and into the highest one. And much like many of the others, Maria just doesn’t have anything special to offer that makes her any different than other girls like her, she’s just a beautiful flirty girl. I have no complaints, but she’s also not the kind of girl I’d want to spend forever with. I need just a little more.
Finishing off this week’s edition is everyone’s favourite dragon maid. From Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon, it’s Tohru!
Tohru at the very beginning is a dragon who hates humans and wants nothing more than to eliminate them off the face of the Earth. However, upon a girl staying with her for a day, followed by of course being found by Kobyashi at near-death, she’s changed quite a lot from her previous ways of wanting to be in a constant state of murdering humans.
As a demi-human, Tohru living with Kobayashi changes her into your cheesy, over-the-top girl who is very interested in romancing the main character. She’s over-the-top friendly, cheerful as all hell and kind to everyone she meets. She tries her best to help out those she cares about, specifically as we see with Kobayashi, how she tries to be the best maid possible so that she makes her happy. Because she’s new to the modern world though, she’s extremely impressionable and easily influenced and given television today, that’s a very bad thing.
But there’s a major reason why I’ve come to the decision that I have with Tohru, so here it is:
♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠
If you’ve watched the show, you might’ve noticed a key piece of information I’ve left about Tohru throughout the series and it’s a major reason as to why I’m not wanting to pursue any sort of longing relationship with her. SHE TRIES TO FEED YOU HER TAIL MEAT CONSTANTLY!!! Have you seen it?! It looks like demon meat! Now I also get a little put off with her over-the-top happiness, which as I’ve stated in a lot of girls on these posts, they’re a little too much for me. So not only would I deal with that insanity, but I’d have to watch my food at all times for the risk of dragon tail meat to be in it?! No thanks! She’s gorgeous and a wonderful personality, but I’m out!
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.
