It’s week #55 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 genius shut-in computer programmer who makes money out of sheer boredom. From Wagamama High Spec, it’s Toa Narumi!
Toa as I said at the start is a bit of a shut-in, though not for the usual reasons you see shut-in characters portray. Toa’s not an unsociable character, she’s not overly shy, she’s doesn’t have personal space issues, it’s nothing like that. She’s really just a lazy girl who would prefer to keep conversation to a minimum so she can focus on the stuff she really likes, like video games, anime and just surfing the internet to her heart’s content.
What makes her unique is her incredible programming ability, able to make smartphone apps and lottery prediction programs, all with the sole goal to make money, doing the least amount of work possible. She’s actually made quite a lot of money making apps when she’s bored, it doesn’t appear like she’s making them because she likes it, it’s all about just making things and hoping it generates money.
So it should come as quite a surprise what my call for Toa is:
♥ WAIFU ♥
If Toa was the kind of girl who fully didn’t want human contact, this’d be a tougher sell, but she’s really just the kind of girl who wasn’t to keep things short and sweet. She’s more like a tsundere is a lot of aspect, she really likes people, but has trouble showing it, or in some cases would just rather not show it, so it doesn’t impede on her gaming time, or whatever it is she’s doing. I’m willing to bet that once she’s comfortable with someone, she chills a little bit anyways. But on top of that, she fits in with me in so many ways, gaming, anime, keeping things short and sweet, we’re a pretty good match. And selfishly, I’ll admit that her innate ability to generate money almost at will with her work is quite the nice addition.
Second up is a real blast from the past for me, an old anime coming back to me with an old tsundere girl with a kendo stick. From Love Hina, it’s Motoko Aoyama.
Motoko is just about what you’d expect from a 90s-era harem anime girl who practices swordsmanship. Oh wait, it hasn’t changed 20 years later. Either way, she’s your typical girl with morals, principles, all that jazz. She’s very proper, high-class, calm and collected, strong morals with the desire to her duty, whatever it may be. On the flip side, when it comes to anything outside of her “normal”, Motoko is completely naive and confused when it comes to those very things. She’s open to trying things, but is usually beyond her reach and she tends to get irritated when things don’t go the way she hoped they would.
There’s not much more to talk about with Motoko, since I don’t remember much else from the anime, so here’s my call on her:
♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦
Like a lot of girls like her, there’s actually a lot to like. She’s very nice, proper, polite, helpful, a lot of very positive traits encompass her. But there just isn’t quite that special something to tip her over the edge. She’s definitely a pleasant person to be around, I could totally see myself hanging around her and being quite happy about it. But in terms of forevermore? She’s just not quite there.
Finishing off this week is the quirky scuba diving girl who loves to whistle. From Amanchu!, it’s Hikari Kohinata!
Taking away the potential that she’s a lesbian in the anime, Hikari may just be one of the most positive and happy characters you may ever see. It’s very rare to ever see her sad or depressed, but I imagine if she ever hit such a state, she’d be out of it almost instantly. The one state she can get herself in however is when she’s complimented, she gets extremely flustered and blushy, which is quite adorable. She’s also the kind of girl who’s incapable of lying, even if it gets her into trouble.
When it comes to her friends, she’s very dominating, often taking people by the hand and leading them into whatever she’s wanting to do. Her hyper-active nature lends a hand to this as well, especially with her constant desire to blow the whistle she carries around. She’s a go-getter and the kind of person to get someone to break out of their shell.
So, here’s my call on Hikari:
♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦
Originally, I thought her hyper-active nature and her instance on blowing her whistle would destroy me, but then I think back to the company I kept in high school and I remember that I dealt with those kinds of folk in doses. Hikari’s the same way, I think. She’s not the kind of person I could hang around every day, but certainly someone I wouldn’t have any problem dealing with on a regular basis. I just gotta bring earplugs for the whistle.
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.
