Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #9

It’s week #9 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!

01

Starting off this week will be probably one of the quicker ones due to the simple fact there’s really not much on her when I search for her entire history online, so I’m going off memory with what I remember from watching Schwarzesmarken in the winter season. Because of the war-torn nature of the anime, most of the girls in the show while super pretty didn’t get a whole lot in terms of backstory and side scenes to get a real sense of what the characters are like when they’re not fighting for their lives.

Sylvia is a really hard nut to crack because the majority of her time in the anime is spend being extremely cold and distant to pretty much everyone in the entire show. She admits as well that the only reason she’s in this war and works together with her squadmates is to ensure her own survival, which is super interesting when you think about it, a very realistic representation of what many felt by joining the military during major wars. She was convinced that being close to the military was safer than being a defenseless civilian.

The hard part now with Sylvia is identifying how she might be if she existed in a modern day society where she’s not fighting to stay alive. The little information we have of her that could help us, is how before we see her in the anime, she wasn’t always this cold, she had a couple of very close friends in another battalion. So it’s safe to say that at one point or another she was a lot more friendly than she’s shown in the anime. She does come off as a very loyal person and maybe without a war to fight, she could show a bit more of a calmer, funnier, maybe even a softer side of her.

I can’t really say much more, so here’s my call on Sylvia:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠

It’s not to say Sylvia couldn’t be a good person, but because of the lack of information I have on her outside of the war she’s become essentially emotionless during, I have nothing to go on that tells me she’s anything but a one-time-only type of meeting. She’s super beautiful and perhaps a beautiful mind when a gun isn’t in her hands, but without the knowledge of what that looks like, I can’t just open up my heart like that.

01

Do I even have to go through this character? I’m pretty sure by now everyone knows where I stand on this girl. Oh well, guess I’ll do it anyway.

Rikku’s so many things to me. She’s absolutely adorable, her mannerisms are so cute and cheesy, her voice (because Tara Strong fucking nails everything she does) adds onto that cuteness she has, her costumes are both cute and sometimes sexy, though I do prefer her FFX outfit over her FFX-2 outfit and honestly, her overall personality is just absolutely infectious. When so many characters in Final Fantasy games seek to be the most depressing or trying to be the most badass by competing on who has the biggest sword, Rikku is an absolute breath of fresh air. She seeks to cheer up the group and those playing the game by being super cute, super funny and breaking the ice when things get too quiet, too tense or too depressing.

As we see with Rikku’s relationship with Yuna as cousins, she is beyond loyal to those close to her, willing to do anything for them, including completely living a life of sacrilege in a mostly pure religious society where you’re outcasted and sometimes even vilified for the decisions you’ve made. If you are close enough to Rikku, you know that you’ve got someone who will not stab you in the back, in fact she’ll sooner stab someone else in the back for your sake, if it means you’re safe.

Lastly, you just want to hug her. I cannot stress to you how many times while playing Final Fantasy X for the first time (I was also 16 at this point, so Rikku was just a year younger than me) that there were moments where I just wanted to embrace this absolute cutie whenever she was sad, upset, scared, happy, all the emotional moments. In particular, I can recall thinking in the back of my mind wanting to be there with her in the Thunder Plains, to help her overcome her fear of thunder, or at the very least get through it.

I’m not going to waste anymore time, because this decision was made years ago for me:

♥♥ #2 WAIFU ♥♥

While Charlotte is my #1 pick, Rikku is not far behind her, she and Charlotte are at the top of the list, Charlotte for anime and Rikku for video games. Perhaps it is because Rikku was one of the first game crushes I had, but clearly she’s had staying power, lasting over a decade now. Why is that? Because to me, she is the ultimate pretty face cutie pie. She’s beyond friendly, some people may think she’s over-friendly, maybe a little too hyper, but that’s no issue for me at all. She’s fun-loving, she’s very funny and as we see in FFX-2, she does have a more playful, dare I say sexy side to her when she wants to show it? The only thing she could do to check off every box for me would be to have a crazy bright-coloured anime hair and somehow I feel like that might actually not work with her. So I’m more than happy to accept who I feel is the perfect girl for me.

01

For those who watched Rokka ~Braves of the Six Flowers~, we were treated to a number of beautiful women with interesting personalities. And in my opinion there was no girl more unique and interesting than Fremy Speeddraw.

Fremy is already extremely unique due to the fact she’s actually not fully human, technically a half-human half-monster after a human male was forced to breed with one of the Dark Specalists and was then killed after she was found to be pregnant, devoured by the very monster he was forced to breed with. It’s a horrifying story to say the least, so from the very start, Fremy was going to be born into a tough life. She was born and bred to kill the many potential Saints that could threaten the Majin, essentially the ultimate power of all the monsters. After failing to kill one Saint after already succeeded not just once, but many times in killing other major Saints who would’ve been picked before the ones chosen in the anime, she was banished and thus began her quest of vengeance.

Because of this terrible backstory, Fremy spends essentially 95% of the anime in a complete cold and emotionless state. Even with Adlet, one of the most happy-go-lucky MCs I’ve ever watched in anime, she remained her expressionless self. And that’s large in part to the childhood she had where she was taught to fear the monsters and watched her own “family” be attacked for defending her, she was slowly raised to become the emotionless self she is. The major negative of her throughout the anime is the trouble she has trusting anyone because of the hell she went through during her childhood. It takes the entirety of the anime for her to open up at all.

And when she finally does, we get a glimpse of the potential that this girl has once everything calms down and she has the time to live a normal life again. It appears that before she lost her smile so to speak, she was a very nice and caring young girl and when she finally starts to open to Adlet, we see just a little bit of that. We can also see the primary reason she never trusted anyone in the early going was because after all the hell she’d been through, she didn’t want to create anymore relationships, just to lose them again. In fact, she much preferred the idea of fighting to her death and thus never having to worry about anything again, becoming very frustrated and upset with Adlet when after pushing her far enough, she almost hated him for making her want to live again because she now cared for him.

So with all that being said, here’s my result for Fremy:

♥ WAIFU ♥

Granted the scar where she cut off her horn will be a little weird (can’t kiss her directly on the forehead), but after seeing her open up the way she does at the end of the season, it’s clear to me that if Fremy was living a normal life, one devoid of pain, sorrow and betrayal, she would be an absolutely beautiful woman both in body and mind. She is extremely loyal, obviously why she didn’t want to get close to anyone ever again, because she once she’s in, she’s in for the long haul. And I just imagine a domesticated Fremy (it’s not the best word, but it makes sense given her upbringing is almost like she’s feral) where she’s not living in fear, she’s not fighting for her life and she’s not spending every day worrying about the next person who will betray her, she would be that beautiful, funny, caring woman that we guys dream of having as our partner in life forever.


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.

Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #8

It’s week #8 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!

01

There’s going to be few girls that the randomizer pulls out that will be as easy to define personality-wise than Naruko. It’s a product of AnoHana being as emotional and depressing as it is, the entire show runs around showing everyone at their worst and the most vulnerable, so we see them opening up more secrets than you could shake a stick at.

At face-value, Naruko seems like just one of those girls that when you were in high school, you thought was super hot but you’d never have a chance in hell of even getting her to acknowledge your existence, let alone hang around with you. She dresses and sort of acts like those kinds of girls, ones that in the anime, one of the main cast in Chiriko calls “sluts”. No sugarcoating there. But in actuality, Naruko really has nothing in common with those girls, she’s merely a follower, easily influenced by other girls.

On the inside, Naruko’s actually (at least to me) just your average girl next door kind of character, or at least she would be if not for all the baggage she’s carried with her ever since lead character Meiko’s death when both of them were kids. From what we do see of her, Naruko is a very caring girl, more than willing to help people, especially those she’s close to. She’s also got a nerdy side, collecting video games and manga.

In terms of downsides though, we do see that she has a major jealous streak, to the point that even though Meiko’s passed away, the fact that Jinta is the only one that can see her ghost, she’s still jealous because even then Jinta still doesn’t look at her, he looks at Meiko. She’s also got the ability to be very cold, particularly when she’s around her “slut” friends.

So all that in mind, here’s my call on Naruko:

♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦

I’m not 100% sold on Naruko, I’m not convinced that we’d be a perfect match, even if I snapped her out of this cold, jealous side she has. But at the very least, I can see her as someone that if I could get her away from the bad influence friends she has, she’d be a great person to hang around, she does have that best friend kind of vibe to her. The issue at hand is being able to get her away from those other girls and snap her out of the jealous streak she has. Unless we’re past the end of AnoHana in which case it’s a lot easier.

01

With my #1 pick from Infinite Stratos already done (Charlotte Dunois), it’s time for the girl next in line to take her shot. This silver-haired beauty (I know it looks blue in a lot of pictures) has a lot to live up to, so let’s see how Laura fares.

Let’s not sugarcoat things here. At the start of the anime, Laura is a complete and total bitch. No question, when she’s introduced as potentially the villain of the season (technically there never was one in Season 1), she’s not a pleasant person. She’s still adorable, but not pleasant whatsoever. She has a massive superiority complex and pretty much demands Chifuyu to return to Germany to train her and the other soldiers there, as her time and skill is being wasted teaching a bunch of “useless students” at the IS Academy. The only saving grace from this side of her personality is that she can and will admit defeat or if she’s outclassed by an opponent.

Now let’s dump the shitty side of her and talk about the best side. Once Laura is saved by Ichika after her IS goes completely off the wall, she falls in love with him and we see the much more adorable and downright ridiculous side of her. As we saw with her more aggressive form, she doesn’t waste time going after what she wants, immediately attempting to claim Ichika for her own, becoming the first and only person in the anime to actually plant her lips on his. She also has a misunderstanding of Japanese culture and calls him her “wife” or “bride” when she claims him, much to the shock and then later absolute rage of the rest of the girls. When it comes to her intentions and thoughts, her self-confidence is so high, she doesn’t hide a damn thing, she’ll come out and say it right away.

However, when it comes to her appearance, it’s a whole different story. Being trained in the army pretty much her entire life, she doesn’t have the traditional traits of a teenage girl, so once she’s hanging out with the group outside of the school, she has to adjust to the idea that she has to pay more attention to how she looks and what she wears, especially taking into account that she wants to keep Ichika’s attention on her. There are several times where she looks and dresses very cutely (usually because of Charlotte) and it turns her into the cliche red in the face shy girl and that’s when Laura is at her best in terms of being adorable. Up until this point she was unaware of how cute she actually is, so when Ichika comments on her being just that when she’s in her swimsuit (which was actually one of the skimpiest of all the girls in that episode), she cannot handle the compliment and just runs (literally) into the water.

And yet after all this, all the blushing madly over being in cute clothes, being called cute, anything related to her having to acknowledge how cute she is…she has absolutely no issue being naked around Ichika. Not long after she claims Ichika as her wife, possibly even the following day after that kiss, Ichika wakes up with Laura in his bed and completely naked. When he tries to question her, she immediately puts him in an armbar as if this is something a loving couple would do together. Also, in a show where girls beat the shit out of the MC just for seeing them in their underwear, she’s absolutely content with his hand rested on her chest and his forearm right between her legs. And again, she’s naked. Holy shit, Laura.

Finally, we see that while she keeps her share of enemies with the girls, she is more than capable of being friendly to the point of best friends with people, Charlotte being the one she really gets attached to, almost like sisters in Season 2. Laura is a really sweet girl when she’s not trying to swing the biggest dick (metaphorically of course) in terms of battle prowess amongst the other girls. When she actually opens up her heart to someone, she does erase the aggressive side to her. She does still say whatever she wants, but thankfully when she’s around people she likes, those things she wants to say aren’t usually negative.

So all in all, here’s my decision with Laura:

♥ WAIFU ♥

Now there are of course some ground rules with Laura. For starters, she has to keep her soldier training out of the bedroom, I’m not waking up with the potential of having my arm broken every morning. Jokes aside though, there is no doubt in my mind that Laura is easy wife material for me, to which I assume I’ll have to properly explain to her who’s the wife in this relationship. When Laura got away from her villainous form halfway through Season 1, she became an absolute sweetheart. I’m not sure there’s anything more adorable in that anime than when she gets super embarrassed, particularly when she’s complimented on her swimsuit. The thing with Laura too is that with her self-confidence and the fact she doesn’t hide anything and will say how she feels right away, you know there’s no secrets with her. We’d be in a 100% honest relationship.

So I’d be more than happy to share a mixed berry crepe with her.

01

I’m glad that Julis came up just as Season 2 of Asterisk War was coming to a close, because the majority of her personality in a positive manner has really come out in this entire season.

In the early going of the anime, Julis is just your classic beautiful girl who gets seen in an ecchi situation right off the bat, so she’s cold to the MC for the majority of the season. Because it’s a harem anime, she can’t stay mad at you forever, she’s gotta fall in love with you eventually, or in Julis’ case with Ayato, tolerate him eventually. She’s a very hot-headed girl, especially in the early stages of meeting her, she’s the kind of girl who keeps her few friends very close to her and goes out of her way to ensure they’re protected, even if it means pushing people away. She’s a very loyal person to those actually close to her, willing to do anything for them, so it’s no surprise that those outside of that bubble are almost perceived as enemies by her.

Once she starts to get comfortable with Ayato and his friends though, she’s a lot more tolerable. She’s not necessarily opening up like crazy to everyone, but she’s not just being a cold bitch anymore. When she’s on friendly terms with people, she’s actually super adorable, easy to embarrass and a real joy to be around. It’s really hard to pull out those moments in the anime, cause so much of Season 2 is devoted to the Phoenix Festa, but the late end of Asterisk War, especially Episode 11 really shows that much calmer, beautiful side of her. Though to be honest, it’s not surprising to see her true colours coming out when the prospect of marriage is suddenly thrown onto the table without warning to her.

I’d say more on her personality, but I’m going to use my remaining thoughts for why I came to the decision I have. So without further to do:

♥ WAIFU ♥

Up until Episode 11 of the second season of Asterisk War, the best Julis could have ever hoped to achieve was a Friends With Benefits decision and even then it might have been an uphill battle for her to get there. The majority of what I had seen of her up until that point was this hot-headed, cold young woman who wanted nothing to do with anyone. Season 2 really began to change that as she got really comfortable with Ayato, accepted/tolerated Saya and Kirin and just stopped being such a bitch every episode. Once Episode 11 came around though, I saw a completely different side to Julis that completely changed my perspective on her.

She really becomes someone I can see being much more than just a pretty face. Seeing her completely in her comfort zone, playing with the kids at the orphanage, she’s a completely different person from the Season 1 angry girl we were used to. And given that this is how she acts at home, this is her normal self. And if this beautiful, loyal, caring woman is like this around the people she’s close to and loves deeply, there is no doubt in my mind that she’s more than worth the initial rough patches of our first few meetings.


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.

Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #7

It’s week #7 of the new weekly article on Tuesdays, 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!

01

First up this week is Reina Izumi from the recent Winter anime, Myriad Colors Phantom World. Now let’s just get this out of the way, her abilities are not being considered as a part of this, it’s purely about her personality.

Right off the bat, Reina is for the most part your cliche anime sweetheart. She’s nice, very soft spoken, even when she gets angry, she’s not exactly looking like she’s about to kill you, she still looks adorable when she’s angry. She’s also extremely polite, another cliche of anime as she’s very much the traditional well-mannered Japanese girl, very polite, respectful to everyone, using her honorifics properly all the time and because of her manners, she’s extremely shy and embarrassed when it comes to her ability in the anime, which is basically that she’s Kirby, she opens her mouth super wide and sucks Phantoms in.

There’s not too much more we can really say about her personality, as she pretty much sticks around with these traits throughout the entire anime. We see why she’s the way she is, as her family is extremely strict, there’s an episode solely dedicated to her struggling to deal with her life at home to the point she almost disappears from existence to go to a Phantom world and live with a family there who treats her with actual love and care. But in terms of her personality, there’s not much more to say other than her love for food to the point her dream is really to go to an all-you-can-eat buffet.

So because this is a shorter description, let’s get to the decision now:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠

To get the joke right out of the way, I can’t afford to date this girl, the costs for taking her out to dinner would put me in debt for the rest of my life. But jokes aside, this goes back to Rina from PSO2’s anime, I’m just not that into the cliche anime girls that are super proper, polite and happy, it’s not interesting to me at all, in fact it’s extremely boring. I’m far more into characters that have a real quirk about them, something different, something with an edge even. So in Reina’s case, because she’s so proper, so nice, she’s not interesting to me at all.

01

Itsuka Shikabane aka Plamya from World Conquest Zvezda Plot is your typical badass tough girl that you wouldn’t want to get on the bad side of, but it appears that the good side may or may not be worth the risk.

Now before even getting to her personality, we have to get the core problem with her from the anime out of the way. I have to make it clear that my intentions right from the very start are to keep her away from the kitchen, for my own safety. Her cooking in the show is legitimately lethal, so for my own well-being, I have to Itsuka-lock all the cooking appliances in the house. Granted, I’m a shit cook and can do something, so maybe there’s a chance to teach her just a little, but then again it would also mean testing her finished “products”.

From what we see of Itsuka in the show, she’s definitely ridden with tropes of the more badass, aggressive and downright angry female characters. She spends the majority of her time being very cold and insulting to the males in particular of the group. While she’s not super loving of Roboko and Natasha, when it comes to Lady Kate, she’s a completely different person around her. She’s like a big sister to Kate, unless you count the times she gets maybe a little too close with Kate, especially because she loves Kate’s small, petite frame to the point that, uh…might be criminal if Kate was actually a child. But at times in the anime it is shown that she does have a softer side when she chooses to show it off, which is to very few.

However, with everything put together, I’ve got to come to this decision:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠

Unfortunately, I’ve got to make this decision based on what I’ve seen and it’s obvious that she just does not get along with males very well, so it’s tough to think that even if she could have a soft side towards men, the chances are so slim that even the fact I truly do adore this woman, it’s just not worth getting the shit kicked out of me over and over again, if I survive to see another day. And even if I did make it and got close to her, her cooking would finish me off anyways.

01

After giving Konosuba the Anime Spotlight treatment last Friday, who knew one of the girls would pop up in the randomizer for this week. But Lalatina aka Darkness did just that.

For those unfamiliar with her, she is a crusader in this alternate game-like world, however she can’t hit a damn thing with her sword, regardless of her role as a tank. The other catch with her is that she is well…a masochist, makes sense when she’s a tank. It’s so bad that she creeps out even her enemies when she gets as crazy as she does at times. It’s not limited to physical abuse though, she’ll happily take verbal abuse as well. However oddly enough, she gets super embarrassed and doesn’t enjoy being humiliated in public though. You get her alone in a bath though and she shows her true colours as Kazuma found out in the show.

Now she’s not this weird the entire time, she does exert the usual cliche prim and proper tropes that women of her elegant, rich background have. She is very kind and caring when she isn’t completely lost in her fetishes and is extremely brave and willing to sacrifice herself for those she loves. At the same time, she can also be ridiculously clumsy, which isn’t surprising for someone who couldn’t hit the moon with her sword if she was a foot away from it.

So, let’s make our call on this one:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠

It’s a one-night stand clean sweep this week! Congratulations randomizer for giving me three girls who are super adorable and yet just not displaying enough good personality traits to make them date-able.

So in Lalatina’s case, her fetishes are the primary reason for me why this just isn’t going to work out. On the outside she is such a beautiful woman and seems like she’d be a nice girl. But she is so far gone with her masochistic urges and her desire for humiliation that it’s just way too much for me, it’s not worth the few moments of beauty that she would be when she’s…shall we say a bit more normal.

Then again, a one-night stand seems like something she’d enjoy too…oh dear.


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.

Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #6

It’s week #6 of the new weekly article on Tuesdays, 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!

***WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD***

We have to establish rules right away for Misa, hence the spoiler warning. Because in the canon of the anime she’s from in Charlotte, Misa is deceased, only available through her younger sister Yusa’s ability to channel and converse with spirits of the dead. So because of this, right off the bat we have to change the canon of the show so that she did not die in a motorcycle accident six months prior to the start of the show. Cool? Cool!

For the brief time we see Misa, particularly in the episode we’re introduced to both her and Yusa, we see a very brash, angry tomboy who’s got no problem whatsoever turning things violent when she needs to accomplish her goals, even if that goal is just to relieve some anger when you piss her off. Her powers are that of pyrokinesis, essentially being the ability to generate fire and direct it wherever she wants. She can be extremely dangerous, to the point of serious injury and death to those in her way if she decided to take a more evil approach to her life.

However, taking her “she could kill you” aspect out of the equation, she’s pretty much in a nutshell the badass tough girl who once in a blue moon brings out that soft side she tries so hard to hide. Even around her friends in the episode centered around her, she’s still a very brash and very straightforward talking girl who will be happy to challenge you to a fistfight if you rub her the wrong way. But at the end of her spotlight episode when her best friend confesses his love for her, she turns into a completely different person, one who actually can be sympathetic and calm.

So with all that in mind, here’s my decision on Misa that has not changed since I watched that episode:

♥ WAIFU ♥

Once I got a look at her softer side, I was hooked on her. I was already very interested in her at the very start, even though the only personality traits I had seen of her was her “I’ll fucking kill you!” kind of attitude towards everything. She’s a drop dead gorgeous badass tomboy, the only things left to make me love her more was to dye her hair red (though the orange suits her perfectly) and if I’d see her wearing a more traditional punk outfit, skirt and striped knee-highs included. But once I saw her soft side, it was a done deal. Despite her anger issues, it looks like to me that once you get past that side of her (and granted we don’t even know where the origins of that attitude come from) and get close to her, she becomes more of a fun-loving best friend kind of girl and I do personally enjoy someone with a bit of an edge to them. Just gotta make sure that if I’m making that commitment, I’m not fucking it up. She’ll take half my stuff and burn the other half.

01

This hotshot American witch from the 501st Joint Fighter Wing (Strike Witches) is the first of possibly many girls from her unit that’ll get put up to the test of this weekly article, as there are a lot of them to go over. Charlotte or “Shirley” to her friends is pretty much an American flight enthusiast very much akin to an Amelia Earhart type of girl. She has the constant goal to break the sound barrier during flight, a goal she developed after seeing Witches flying for the first time, beforehand she intended on becoming a singer.

The common trait we see out of Charlotte throughout the Strike Witches anime is how completely open and free-spirited she is, likely picked up from her thrill-seeking nature. Out of anyone in the anime, no girl spends her time not in full uniform than Charlotte, many of times hopping right into her striker unit in either a bikini or her underwear as she’s just waking up in the morning. A lot of that is likely due to her high self-confidence and relatively carefree attitude.

Socially, unlike Misa earlier who is more than happy to punch you in the face for little to no reason, Charlotte is pretty much the friendliest girl of the bunch, making friends with everyone in the unit, obviously some closer than others. But for the most part, she goes out of her way to make friends with everyone and try to place herself in everyone’s good graces. It’s not for a certain objective she has in mind, that’s just how she acts. She doesn’t want to waste time on negative things in her life so she does everything she can to keep everything positive so that she has even more time to accomplish whatever she sets out to do.

She also has a very loving nature to her character and we see that best displayed with her relationship with the younger Francesca Lucchini. Regardless of her being from America and Francesca being from Italy, the two are inseparable to the point that with Francesca being four years younger than her, Charlotte treats her and often refers to her as her younger sister. Again with her open and carefree attitude, when Francesca is known for being the “boob squeezer” of the show, Charlotte’s the only one that allows her to just do as she please, Francesca often curling herself up in Charlotte’s chest almost like a source of relaxation. In terms of the older sister relationship though, she sometimes displays this around Yoshika and Lynette as well, but Francesca’s at the top of her list at all times.

The most important trait from Charlotte is her bravery and lack of fear when confronted with near-impossible situations. She even once went straight at a Neuroi in a plane, no Striker unit to aid her in battle. The girl has zero fear and is willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish whatever goal she sets out to do. To accomplish this as well, she spends the majority of her free time tinkering and upgrading her Striker unit, a very good mechanic.

So, with all that put forward, here’s my decision on Charlotte:

♥ WAIFU ♥

It’s funny, as this is another one of those cases that I never would’ve considered as a potential wife if such a person existed, but Charlotte is actually a much easier pick for such when I really sat down and thought about it as I typed out her background. Like Misa, Charlotte’s a very open and free-spirited girl, though Charlotte’s less likely to punch you in the face, which just adds onto her good graces with me. Originally when I watched the anime, I was far more into the more shy and quiet girls, but in the past few years (likely due to watching a lot more anime than I used to) I’ve become far more into the super happy-go-lucky kind of girls that thrust their way into the picture and Charlotte does that both literally (I think she’s got the biggest chest of all the girls in the show, cause y’know…’Merica!) and personality-wise. After some thought, I can easily see the two of us enjoying each other’s company all the time, being able to talk about pretty much anything and not feeling like either of us are sugarcoating or hiding anything at all. The only risk I run obviously is her thrill-seeking nature, so as long as she doesn’t rope me into too many crazy things, I’ll be fine. And as long as she doesn’t get herself killed doing so.

01

This is going to be an interesting test, as Ui is meant to be the main character’s potential wife in the anime she’s from, My Wife is the Student Council President, so let’s see if she can make the cut for me.

Right off the bat, Ui shows that she’s very much like Charlotte, a good start. She’s very cheerful and outgoing, hell her entire campaign to become student council president was to reduce the crazy “laws” that the Disciplinary Committee was enforcing in terms of high school couples, things like holding hands, kissing and any other levels of affection that weren’t indecent in public. As the student council president, she’s very happy and fun-loving while being from what we see very responsible at her job.

However at home, she’s a completely different story. While she still is very sweet and outgoing, she turns into a lazy, sleepy slacker who depends on Hayato (her “fiancee” in the show) the entire time when she’s at home. Though she does make up for it at times with her silly nature and well…her innate desire to be romantic whenever she has the chance to do so.

Though unfortunately we won’t have a clean Waifu sweep this week, because my decision for Ui is the following:

♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦ 

I can try to look past the negative aspects of her personality when at home, but at the end of the day I’m not getting into a full-time relationship with someone if the expectation is for me to do all the lifting and to me it feels like that’s exactly how a marriage with Ui would go. She is a super sweet girl and actually pretty funny at times and I think she has good intentions down the road to possibly become a better wife, which we’ll find out when the second season of the show airs, something I didn’t anticipate ever coming out, actually. But based on what I see now of her, while I can see myself hanging out with her once in a blue moon and being a fun conversation, I don’t think I could put up with her every day for the rest of my life.


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.

Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #5

It’s week #5 of the new weekly article on Tuesdays, 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!

01

(NOTE: There’s like three different spellings of her name, Toka, Tooka and Touka, the latter being the one Google goes to, so that’s the one I’m using)

In a show where it’s a bunch of high schoolers pretending to be wizards and sorceresses, there needs to be one mature voice throughout the series and that person is Rikka’s older sister, Touka. She is extremely strict, sometimes to the point it actually causes some mental (and physical with the ladle) trauma to Rikka in particular. She’s not a fan of Rikka’s delusions and acting like she’s some magical being from Hell, at least that’s how Touka probably looks at it. While I’d like to throw the book at her, you have to wonder what’s going on from her point of view. She lives with Rikka and their parents are no longer around (their father is dead), so she’s essentially the one taking care of Rikka and she’s basically a high-schooler who still acts like she’s in grade school wanting to be a Power Ranger or some shit. There’s probably a ton of pressure on her mind, not to mention her job as a chef in a very famous restaurant, so there’s a lot on her mind, she clearly doesn’t have time to be babysitting her 16 year-old sister.

Weirdly enough, this strict woman has some curious skills as well. When she was younger, she was a rhythmic gymnast as she shows off several times during the series with her extreme flexibility. She also has a rather dry sense of humour, pulling out the odd joke in probably the worst of times. Lastly, she’s not exactly super serious all the time, she actually does have a bit of a shy side, usually when she’s complimented, which happens rarely in the series, but she does blush the few times it happens.

However there’s a big factor that comes into play and ultimately makes my decision the following:

♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦ 

She’s allergic to cats. Well that’s it, we can’t be together. So unfortunately if we are to have any sort of a relationship, my place would not be involved. However I do like her as a person, I do understand that behind her strict and tough exterior, there’s actually a really nice girl inside, she’s just under an immense amount of pressure and stress that has ultimately caused her to revert to the form she takes throughout the series. There’s a beautiful personality hidden within Touka, I’m sure of it.

01

The student council president from the Seiga Academy from the surprisingly good Phantasy Star Online 2 anime, Rina is your typical perfect girl anime character. She’s smart, top grades in her class, very dependable, very honest and loyal, all the things you’d expect from the girl placed as the student council president of an anime.

In the early stages of the anime, you’d think she’d never get away from that cliched character, but once she starts making it more obvious that she’s way fallen for Itsuki, she starts to open up and show you a little more of her personality beyond the perfect girl she tries to present to everyone throughout the academy. She still retains her sweet personality but she can also be very jealous, stubborn and demanding when she knows what she wants. The problem is that she doesn’t exactly make it clear what she wants, because as we learn with most anime girls, they don’t exactly tell their love interest what they want. Ever.

In terms of her inside PSO2, she’s much stronger, especially when she finally stops hiding behind her secondary character SORO, which is a giant robot and reverts back to her original avatar which looks almost exactly like her to a tee. She does have a strong side to her, more than willing to put herself secondary in order to help people.

Don’t really have much else to say about her, so here’s what I’ve figured out for her:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠

I absolutely adore Rina in terms of her looks, she’s one of those average-looking girls that are actually super pretty when you actually give them a chance. The problem is that with her perfect girl character, I can’t get that much into her, it’s one of those character archetypes that I just can’t ever get into. I’m sure in Japan and their culture, she’s a fantastic girl to the majority of men considering the culture is far different than ours. But in my particular case, she’s just plain boring to me, I don’t care that she’s super smart, super nice and all that jazz. There’s no real excitement about her beyond her looks and that’s just not enough for me.

01

Oh my god, how the bloody hell can I go through this girl?! If you’ve watched FLCL you know exactly why this is going to be a troublesome decision to say the least. The show is all over the place and so is Haruko, to the point that I’m not sure how to look at her, given her attitude changes constantly. But I will try my best.

This power-hungry space police officer just suddenly shows up on Earth, looking for the power of Atomsk, the most powerful space pirate in the entire galaxy. She’s extremely eccentric, violent and completely unpredictable, one second she looks to be nice and sweet, the next she’s raising that blue bass guitar of hers and ready to bash your head in with it.

The moments that we do see her without her crazy face, she seems to be somewhat of a nice girl, though it’s hard to tell if she’s acting the entire time. But if we are to take her seriously during those sections of the anime, it appears that when she’s not trying to take something, especially an immense level of power, she’s relatively cool to hang around and quite possibly a real sweetheart, a fun girl to be around.

But because of her brash behaviour, I have to come to this decision:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠

I really like Haruka and I really wanted to bump her up to Friends With Benefits status, but the problem is that would mean I risk being run over by her Vespa more than once and any other of the crazy shenanigans that she may put me through while being around her. So because of that alone, I have to limit our meeting to one time only. She’s just too risky to be around, regardless of the potential that maybe without all the craziness, she’s actually a super cool girl.


So that’s this week’s editon 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.

Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #4

It’s week #4 of the new weekly article on Tuesdays, 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!

01

While I’m 99.9% sure (can never leave the possibility out) that a magical gate will suddenly appear and we’ll be able to go into a legitimately real fantasy world where all the women are hot as hell, I’ll happily hold some semblance of hope if it means being able to see girls like the gorgeous Rory Mercury there. The only downside is that I’ll end up also meeting very dangerous girls…like the gorgeous Rory Mercury.

Now let’s get all the unique and weird stuff out of the way. Yes, I am aware that Rory has the appearance to a young teenager, however she’s actually lived almost a full millenium, the canon saying she’s 961 years old. She’s an Apostle of Emloy, who is the God of Darkness, War, Death, Violence, and Insanity. She is a violent, merciless demigoddess who will absolutely destroy you with her giant halberd if she deems you worthy of being granted death. Of course, the most unique and weird thing about her is how violence and death legitimately turns her on, Lelei attributes this to “the souls of fallen warriors on the battlefield pass through her body to be drawn to the side of Emroy”, which apparently acts as a sort of aphrodisiac to Rory.

Interestingly, Rory has about 40 years left to essentially live, though death is not a part of it. It actually has to do with her “ascension” as a demigoddess, as once she ascends and becomes a God, she will lose the remaining human emotion she has left. It also makes it very curious that even after being alive for 961 years, Itami is the only man she ever truly enjoyed being around. So let’s take that assumption and replace Itami with myself, how would I view her if she acted the same way towards me as she does with Itami? Well around him, especially when she gets some alone time, she’s extremely flirty and loves to tease, though she doesn’t like it remotely as much when you tease her back. She would also get very attached to me, after all I’m the only male she’s ever enjoyed being around. Lastly, she’s also very snappy when you talk about her age, so she’s definitely a woman, no surprise there.

So taking all this into account, what’s my call on this one?

♥ WAIFU ♥

Originally when I started this, my idea was going to be a one-night stand, but as I wrote more and more about Rory and recalled more and more from the anime, not only do I feel like we’d actually have a fun, close relationship, but in all honesty if the parameters from the anime get applied to me instead, it’s kind of hard to refuse this or take any other stance on her.

Rory has essentially 39 years before her humanity is completely gone. I’m currently 28 years old, so I would be 67 when she inevitably ascends and becomes a God. With that math in mind, it’s almost the perfect length for both of us, she’ll ascend when I’m at an old age and 67 is the age where it’s very possible in this day and age for me to be alive for the rest of her technically human life. With that in mind, I would happily spend the rest of my life with Rory and make her remaining years as enjoyable as possible.

The only weird part? The fact she doesn’t age. That’ll probably get weird once I start turning grey and my skin starts aging. Guess I might be living in solitude with her once I get into my 40s or so.

In a show where the entire cast are half-humans who share the other half with various types of “monsters” or really RPG fantasy races, the only girl that I truly had any attraction to was the one 100% human girl that had a consistent amount of screen time each week. I can admit I enjoyed girls like Zombina, Papi, Centorea and Manako, but three of them are not fully human and one of them has one eye and that’ll likely throw me off for a while. So the only one left out of all the girls I really enjoyed in Monster Musume is of course, Smith or Sumisu if we’re talking the Japanese canon.

Smith in the show is a Cultural Exchange Coordinator and the Commander of the Monster Ops: Neutralization team. She’s essentially supposed to be acting as a policewoman for the interspecies laws that were (poorly) initially instituted when all the races starting living in the same cities together. However, Smith is extremely irresponsible the majority of the show, a lot of the time just passing things off onto the main character in Kimihito. At the same time though, it’s implied she’s gotten the irresponsible due to the nature of her job, being that she’s insanely overworked and never receives a pay raise no matter how many new tasks she’s given and how many times she’s proven that she’s capable. Because as we see throughout the show, when it’s time to get serious, there’s no one better than her.

There’s really only a couple occasions we ever see of Smith outside of her job and putting how hot she looks during those scenes aside, she seems to be just your average working woman, her place is a bit on the messy side, she’s extremely casual, hell I’m pretty much convinced she refuses to wear anything but her underwear in her apartment. That sounds a lot like someone we’d all be in a similar situation. Oh and she’s totally addicted to coffee.

Since there’s not much else to say about her, given that she’s a more minor character in a harem show, I’m just gonna pop in my decision right now:

♥ WAIFU ♥

This is a relatively easy decision for me, mainly because of Smith’s laid back nature. It’s a pretty easy relationship to start with me, I’m not into the overly sweet or plain and boring types, so there’s a check. Smith is super casual at home, which matches me to a tee. Everything just comes off like a perfect match to me, we’re both very professional until we realize when we’re being fucked with, then we just do the bare minimum until the time comes to get serious. I dunno, I can’t say much more other than just how my brain is taking everything I know about Smith and seeing nothing but positives. Well…except for the sheer amount of coffee that’ll be in the house.

Every harem anime has to have a crazy girl character. I don’t mean like “I’ll kill you!” crazy, I mean just… more like “Holy shit this girl’s all over the place.” kind of crazy. Tabane is that girl in Infinite Stratos.

Which is crazy when you think about it (pun half-intended), as Tabane is the genius mind behind the entire invention of the IS units. Yet this girl crashes into land in a giant carrot with robotic rabbit ears on her head and wearing something akin to a maid dress and starts being the flakiest girl you’d ever seen as she tries to hug everyone she can…which is just Houki, Chifuyu and Ichika. She pretty much can’t recognize anyone else, how odd from a genius mind, I guess that genius is very selective.

A major trait of her besides from her insanity is honestly her perverse nature. We see flashes of that when she notes how much “Houki has grown” when she sees her for the first time in a while to give her the Akatsubaki IS and when she notes specifically the bust size of the White Knight IS. Arguably, this could just have a lot to do with the long amounts of solitude Tabane subjects herself to as she constantly works to improve the IS units into the next generation of them.

The other notable trait is her lack of sense of responsibility, especially when it comes to anything her creations have done over the years. She seems to prefer observing events that involve IS units rather than stop them, though it’s very obvious that she’s capable of intervening at any time if she actually wanted to. It’s a real troublesome problem.

I don’t have much else to say on here, so I’ll get the decision out now:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠

There’s no doubt in my mind that Tabane would be a very insufferable person to be around for an extended period of time. She’s just not right in the head, regardless of the genius mind in that head of hers. But most of all, I’m avoiding any sort of emotional relationship with her due to the fact that I know my own life would be in danger if I was in a close relationship with her. Think about it, this girl gets emotionally involved with only a few people in the entire world. And if I’m the only one who can’t pilot an IS unit, I’m kinda fucked. I’ll be walking around with a massive target on myself to people wanting to extort things out of Tabane. And that doesn’t sound like fun to me.


So that’s this week’s editon 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.

Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #3

It’s week #3 of the new weekly article on Tuesdays, 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!

01

A late edition to the Mass Effect series, Samantha Traynor is the third “next to your space map” soldier put into the game after Charles Pressly and Kelly Chambers. And out of all three of them, she’s easily my favourite by a massive landslide. And that’s not just because of the long journey she had to get a new toothbrush.

Samantha for me didn’t have nearly as many negative perceptions as Charles and Kelly did. Charles was very racist with aliens (granted he got better by the end before his death) and Kelly was just way too sweet and forthcoming with her whole “psychiatrist” gimmick she had as the ship’s yeoman. Sam on the other hand has a bit of everything you could ask for, she’s cute, funny, doesn’t come off as someone going too far in one direction personality-wise, she’s one of the most normal feeling girls in the entire Mass Effect series to me, which actually makes her unique in her own right, given the other girls she has to compete with.

However, there’s a bit of a snag…she’s a lesbian. You can try to woo her as Male Shepard during the “Game Night” activity, but there’s no shower scene with her if you’ve got a penis. Lucky FemShep!

There’s really not much else I can say about her since she’s more of a minor character, so let’s get this call out of the way:

♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦ 

Taking into account if she was bisexual at the very least, she falls right into the middle for me. I think she’s a cool person to hang around, however I don’t know enough about her to make a comfortable call on whether I’d go as far as marrying her. But there’s no doubt in my mind that I’d have her as a close friend and if she ever got a bit curious about a sexual relationship with a male, I’d be more than game. But since I’m not an asshole, I wouldn’t impede on her preferences if she was forever strictly for girls only. Though I admit I’d be a little sad…

01

This redhead beauty from the Saints Row series on the surface looks like a super-cute nerdy girl. And you’re not wrong, you’re just not getting the entire story about her.

She’s all kinds of crazy, clearly she’s gone through some real messed up stuff before you meet her in Saints Row 3, I’m sure all she went through with the Deckers is one of the many things. But I imagine she’s the kind of girl you don’t want to walk into a room when you’re tied up or chained up, unless you’re into that sort of thing of course. It’s pretty clear she’s got a hidden violent side that you don’t want to piss her off enough to unlock in her.

But most of all, she has a more extreme taste in sexual interaction as we see with her clear love and possibly obsession with S&M and being a Dominatrix. I mean in Saints Row 4 when you ask her to fuck point blank, she punches you in the face and jumps on top of you. She’s clearly a leader in the bedroom and not a soft one.

However, when she isn’t crazy, I can see her being someone that could be cool to hang around, after all she’s a giant nerd, plays video games, all that jazz. You just have to worry about her suddenly falling into madness at any moment.

And because of that, my decision is pretty easy:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠ (at my own discretion)

With her fetishes and kinks, there’s no doubt in my mind that she’s a one-time-only kind of relationship when it comes to sex. And even then, because of the potential pain or at least discomfort I might face if I ever got that far with her, I may not even take that chance. For my own safety, I’m avoiding the whip and shit.

01

Speaking of crazy sex-craving girls, here’s Anna from Shimoneta: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist, one of the best names of an anime ever. If you’ve seen the show, you are more than aware of the super sexual nature of the show and you most definitely know of Anna, the perfect girl that after a simple kiss goes from anti-everything when it comes to dirty language, sex, all that jazz…to a sex-craving lunatic that pretty much attempts to rape the MC from Episode 3 onward.

Before her true craziness begins, she’s the cliche perfect girl with perfect morals multiplied by a massive integer that no one can estimate. The no dirty jokes and sexual content alternate Japan causes some real fucked up ideologies and when you apply that to anime characters, you know it’s going to be so over-the-top it’s painful to watch. She seems like a nice girl, but holy hell would I be facepalming listening to her anti-sex gospel and drivel.

Now it’s a whole different story when she starts her sex craving. Now I want to stay away from her cause I’d fear for my safety, not only would she talk about the perfect world her mother is trying to create…she’s be violating me while she’s talking about it! How fucked up would that be?!

Taking all that into account, we have another first of decisions:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠ (and then leave Japan forever) OR ♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦ (if she calms down)

The first decision that comes with conditions. Taking everything I know from how she acts from Episode 3 onwards, the immediate decision is a one-time-only type of relationship, which may likely be one that I didn’t even decide the when and where of, it may just happen when I’m not prepared. However, if I was able to pull her aside in a controlled environment (if that’s at all possible) and allow her the chance to explore all these newfound curiosities she has, because I’ll admit that I would without question have an escapade with her, she’s gorgeous. But I’d have to establish a “calm the fuck down” sort of condition, so she doesn’t cause me any major injury. And the other condition I’d have to add in there is if after that first time, she calms down quite a bit and stops being the sex-craving lunatic she is with Tanukichi, I’d happily be there when she’s in withdrawal again. Because given how she acts, especially from what we see when she nearly does the deed with Tanukichi, she looks like she’s be a fantastic bed. It’s worth the risk.


So that’s this week’s editon 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.

Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #2

It’s week #2 of the new weekly article on Tuesdays, 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!

01

This blonde-haired beauty from Infinite Stratos has been a mainstay on the top of the list when it comes to my favourite anime girls. Charlotte is just one of those girls that no matter how much anime I soak in and furthermore how many more female characters I take a liking to, no one can seem to take this girl off the top.

Starting out, Charlotte wasn’t even Charlotte, she was disguised as Charles Dunois, the second boy to be able to pilot as IS unit, essentially what would happen if you took a Gundam, made it human-sized and then removed the parts that cover up the chest and butt, for obvious reasons! But anyone who’s watched anime for more than five minutes could tell right from the very start (especially with the knowledge that Infinite Stratos is a harem anime) that Charles was not packing anything, at least not in the lower regions. So not long after, when “Charles” and Ichika are rooming together at the academy’s dorm, being the only two guys, he walks in on Charles in the shower and as it turned out, Charles was indeed packing…some pretty large breasts that somehow could be wrapped up to hide her true gender. But y’know…anime logic.

Deception aside, Charlotte makes no buts about it, she’s an absolute sweetheart. Even when disguised as a boy, she was an absolute wonder to be around. She comes from a wealthy family, though being born a baby from her father’s mistress, rather his wife. Not knowing her father, she lived with her mother until her sudden passing and was then adopted by her father. Being from France and from a wealthy family, she’s stereotyped as the elegant girl of the group, but doesn’t fall into the posh, holier-than-thou attitude that Cecilia does. Instead, Charlotte puts aside the negative connotations that comes with being from a rich family, in fact her father’s company being a top producer of IS units. She rarely gets angry, she’s not overly pushy and she doesn’t exert the common tsundere trope in anime girls.

However that doesn’t mean she’s free from anime tropes, she still falls into the trap of wanting to be with the MC, however will still call him a pervert if something happens out of her control (like having her breasts grabbed accidentally while going down a couples waterslide with Ichika). Though there have been times, especially while they were still rooming together where she even flat-out admits that she’d gladly partake in such actions if he at least talked to her about it first. It’s clear that her heart is open to romance and she’s not shy about it, she’d just rather it be on her terms.

Romantic preferences aside, Charlotte has essentially two sides to her in the show. She’s the elegant sweetheart of the group outside of battle, but when the IS unit gets put on, she’s a confident and strong young woman. She has zero issue protecting her friends, she’s not a damsel. In fact, she’s the one who really teaches Ichika how to pilot his IS in the beginning when the other girls are more concerned about spending time with him and trying to get into his pants than actually teaching him something.

So with me finished just going crazy on all the things I like about Charlotte, if you’ve kept up with my content, this decision will come as no surprise:

♥♥♥ #1 WAIFU ♥♥♥

Though Charlotte gets special treatment because she is my #1 choice for a wife within all fictional girls. If I only get to pick one fictional girl to make into a real person, it’s Charlotte without question. I’ve said it before, I’m not sure if someone will ever capture my heart as much as she has, she just the perfect girl for me. To quickly get her looks out of the way, she’s built so perfectly, she’s a smaller girl, doesn’t have massive breasts, an adorable hair style and dresses very cute. Hell, even when she was disguised as a guy, I thought she was attractive as all hell!

In terms of her personality, I can’t see many flaws with her. She’s not crazy, angry, selfish, snobby, anything that would completely turn me off of her. Instead, she’s calm, kind, caring, fun-loving and she has a bit of a romantic side to her, so long as you don’t grab her breasts on a waterslide or pull down her panties when she falls over while getting dressed and you trip over yourself trying to stop her from screaming in a dorm full of girls. She’s shown me over the course of the anime’s two seasons that she’s not just a friend, she’s your best friend. And one as beautiful as her, I would never ignore if such a person existed.

From a show that I’m still very salty about not getting the kind of attention it deserved, Kinoa from Bubuki Buranki is a very interesting personality to go through. There’s a lot of good to go through, but at the same time there’s a lot of issues the girl has had and gone through that’ll make this whole process a lot tougher than some of the other girls out there.

Right off the bat, Kinoa has a real temper. She’s very snappy at times, especially with Hiiragi, though I can accept her getting pissed off at him constantly, he’s a giant douche. Regardless, she does have a temper that often flares up and she’s quite cynical and pushy.

However we have to take into account the mental trauma the girl has gone through before the anime even begins. Aside from the whole world being in chaos under Reoko’s rule and possibly her parents being killed (can’t remember if hers were killed like others were, can’t find the answer online either), she was taken advantage of by the much older Souya when she was younger and obviously more naïve and trusting. While we’re left to assume it wasn’t a rape-level situation, we are told to assume that the two of them at one point had a sexual relationship and that once Souya had his fun, he left her high and dry, sending her into the vengeful badass bitch she is as the series starts.

So it’s really hard to fault her for some of the more negative personality traits she has. The question I’m left with is if I should take everything as is, or judge her more based on what she’d be like without all that trauma. So when I cast aside all that for the time being, what I see in Kinoa is a cool, fun-loving tomboyish girl who has a sweet side to her once you get close enough to her. We see flashes of that sweet side in the flashbacks of her, she doesn’t really ever bring it out in the present time though.

Taking her full personality into the fray though, it’s a little different. With her vengeful status, she’s a lot more on the take no prisoners, hot-headed side of things personality-wise. She does carry that confidence and swagger about her with her fighting ability and is a very strong young woman.

Unfortunately, the reality is that we are taking the character in full, so because of the added effects of her mental trauma, the decision is as follows:

♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦ 

I imagine behind all the problems she has because of the entire situation going on and especially Souya’s “game” he played with her, Kinoa would probably be a super cool person to be around and may have even crossed into Waifu territory, as I really do like her. But with the temper she has and the other issues, it’s too difficult to go that far down the road with her. Granted, I can easily see her being much more approachable down the line once you’ve gotten her comfortable around you and trusting you unlike the 99.9% of people she comes into contact with. She’s a drop dead gorgeous girl who deserves better than what she was given.

Specifically using the Harvest Moon 64 version of Karen, she’s quite the interesting character throughout the entire series. A wine connoisseur, a brash and rebellious girl, there’s a lot to talk about with her.

Right off the bat, she has massive walls when it comes to be social with people. Anyone meeting her for the first time will not get much out of her, she’s very cold and distant at first. When you add massive family troubles into the mix, you get a girl who at first glance while is attractive as all hell, in terms of her personality she isn’t attractive at all. She’s a vineyard’s owner’s daughter who wants to leave the countryside to go to the big city, but her father’s having none of it, being the typical asshole father you see in fictional works. Because of all this, she’s become very apathetic to everything else around her, you the main character as well. She only has one real known friend in the game in Ann, who granted is as bold as Karen can be.

It’s once you get through those barriers of hers and see the real side of Karen that she really gets fleshed out and brought into the forefront. When her normal self, she’s an absolute treat to be around, she’s very cool, funny, has a bit of a sweet side that she still tries to hide a bit and then of course she keeps that rebellious fun-loving spirit going at all times. If you took this girl out of the 1999 released game and put her in today’s society, she’d pretty much be a punk rock rebellious kind of girl, I think. Hell, it’s very possible she’d lean as far as being a lesbian or bisexual, possibly giving Ann something to think about.

The only weird thing about her and I won’t put too much stock into this, is once you marry her, her attitude kind of changes a bit too much when she starts calling you “Honey” and other sweet names. I don’t think she’d actually go that route at any point, so I attribute to that more to bad writing from the game developers. Regardless, she’s still a good wife in the game, a lot more like your best friend than anything else.

So with all that being taken into account, where does Karen fall into the fray here?

♥ WAIFU ♥

It was a tough decision, but in the end I decided to take Karen as far as I could go. There’s a few challenges in a potential relationship with someone like Karen, obviously the first month or so around her will be a game of trying to get closer to her without getting so close she backs off. The other wildcard in this that I didn’t talk about much before is her drinking. She’s commonly known as a champion drinker and she also has the wine connoisseur to her name, so the challenge of being a straight-edge companion of hers is definitely a hard one to overcome. But I think in the end it’s worth all the work. I see her as your closest friend in the world and while Charlotte is the sweetheart kind of best friend, Karen’s the free-spirit kind of best friend.


So that’s this week’s editon 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.

Waifu, FWB or One-Night Stand? #1

I’m 28 years old right now. I’ve really been paying attention to how beautiful girls are since I was 12, so I’ve had 16 years of searching and finding plenty of lovely girls that I’ve spent moments dreaming and thinking about the various “What Ifs” with them. Now while I’d be uncomfortable showing all the girls I like in real life, it’s a whole different story when it comes to girls in fiction, particularly video games and anime.

So with that I had an idea, to do that I needed to come up with a list of any female character from a game or anime. And that list at the start of all this is at 485 and this is right now with me forgetting a few names and many more to be added over time when I consume more media. Holy shit that’s a lot more names than I thought I would’ve come up with! The idea is simple, take the list, put it into a randomizer and pop three names out. Those three girls I ask myself a simple question: Waifu, friend with benefits or one-night stand?

Now hold on, before you get all feminist SJW on me, this has absolutely nothing to do with the “fuckability” of the girls. They’re all beautiful, there’s no need to go into great detail about every single curve of their body, how gropeable their breasts or butts are, this is strictly tailored to their personalities. Because I’m not gonna hide it, every one of these 485 girls I’ve listed at the start of this weekly article, I would absolutely without question have a sexual relationship with if it were possible, for whatever reason. The question I’m asking has to do with if it’s literally just sex (one-night stand), a friendship that may lead to a booty call once in a blue moon (friend with benefits) or a relationship that if such a girl existed, I would absolutely spend the rest of my life with her.

And keep in mind that all these girls are purely fictional, so we’re speaking in hypotheticals here, after all I’m not single and if technology will ever exist that can bring these fictional ladies to life, I will probably not be alive for it.

So with all that out of the way, let’s bring up our contestants this week!

01

What a great example to start off withm, as I’ll be laying down rules and making decisions on the character before even going into the question with her. Akatsuki is even further beyond a fictional character, she’s an fictional character inside a video game in a fictional world played by a girl behind a computer and virtual reality, given the live inside the game concept of the Log Horizon anime. So taking that in mind, I have to make assumptions on the character for a couple reasons, one being that while I’m aware we do see what she looks like in real life (aka Shizuka Hanekura) and is somewhat similar, I have not actually gotten to that point in Season 2, so I’m having to go off what I’ve seen in the couple of episodes I’ve seen from that season, as well as all of Season 1. I’m also having to use the personality I have seen of her as of the episodes I’ve watched, so any attitude changes in later episodes do not count in this since I haven’t seen them.

So with that all being said, Akatsuki aka Shizuka Hanekura makes this partially easy, considering she looks a bit like her in-game avatar, except her hair appears to be black, rather than a dark purple. I’m actually surprised she hasn’t dyed it to resemble the character, from what I’ve seen of Shizuka’s personality in the game, she’s fully into it to the point that even though it becomes her actual life now, she’s still roleplaying within the game world, while a lot of characters no longer carry that attitude of being a hero, it’s now a game of survival to them, a sense of worry and the unknown. Akatsuki however does not display that much, if at all, she stays very strong and loyal, perhaps a guise to the millions of thoughts running through the back of her head at all times.

When not in her stoic, serious demeanor, she comes off very tomboyish, as displayed through her various dealings with Henrietta, in particular her dislike for being dressed in more girly clothes like dresses and gowns, resulting in her red-faced displeasure every single time. She’s also not particularly fond of physical contact, especially hugs and such, also something Henrietta shows us time and time again. Also, judging by how often she kicks Naotsugu in the face for trying to talking about panties, she’s not too big a fan of people openly talking about perverted subjects.

Because of her personality displayed in-game, it’s very clear to me that she’s one of those players who spends more time in the game than anywhere else and because of that has a real problem being social, at least that’s how I assume it. Like I said earlier, she’s still large in part roleplaying in the game even though it’s become her real life for the time being, perhaps a crutch for her inability to really be able to socialize with everyone. She also shows that a little bit when it’s clearly obvious she either already had or developed feelings for Shiroe during all this, she can’t bring herself to say anything, not even hint at it.

It’s really hard to make a call on her, given all the psychological aspects of her that I have to think about, remember I’m talking about marriage with myself in real life, I have to take into account everything into this, I’m not just going to say she’s my waifu so I can be with her every day and every night, it has to mean I can actually see us getting along for a long time, maybe ’till the day one of us dies. So because of that, I’ve come to the following decision:

♦ FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS ♦ 

It’s hard to come up with this response after having her at #6 on my Top 10 for anime girls I’d marry, but after really thinking about it and taking all the knowledge I know of her, it’s too risky to make the marriage call on her. I truly do believe she’d be an awesome person to hang around, obviously being gamers we can sympathize and on all accounts she comes off a real cutie. The problem is I think with her solitude kind of personality and her lack of social skills, she’d be really uncomfortable being around someone like me for an extended period of time certainly every single day. But I wouldn’t go as far as to say we’d be a one-time meeting and that’s it, I can’t see it being that bad either. So we end up in the middle here.

01

While the entire series as a whole really disappointed me towards the end due to their John Cena-like writing with how Asuka manages to win almost every match she’s in, especially against opponents she has no business beating, there was always a shining star in that dark void: Misaki Tobisawa.

Misaki at first glance comes off like she’ll be the sex symbol of the series, which while is not false, as she is sort of designed to be that way given her body type and the amount of times she’s either naked, in a swimsuit, or in her FC suit with her ass pointed towards the camera, she’s much more than that. From Episode 1, you figure she’s going to be the sleepy gimmicked character, one of the misfits of the team but as we see later in the episode, she’s just not a morning person and I can certainly sympathize with that!

For a girl designed to be quite a bit of eye candy as illustrated by how Mashiro is constantly all over her (I believe there’s some lesbian undertones going on there), Misaki’s a tough girl. She has that fighting spirit and wants to take the more aggressive route, as she’s a Fighter-class player in the sport and constantly shows off just how aggressive she can be in battles against Shindou and Saki. Even when she’s clearly outmatched, she goes the route of making sure that even if you’re going to win against her, you’re gonna be sore as hell by the end of the game.

Outside of FC she’s a mixed bag, a few bad things and a few good things about her. She’s the kind of girl that you clearly have to gain her trust on first before really getting to the core of her personality, she’s very nonchalant around Asuka at first until she really they start practicing together on the school FC team. She’s also got a jealous streak about her, regardless of her reasons she clearly does not like the fact that Asuka’s getting all the attention and even the full skills of the toughest opponents out there, while Misaki gets maybe half of that, perhaps a bit more.

But in Misaki’s case, the good definitely outweighs the bad, she shines like a bright star when she’s her happiest. There’s not many characters that I perceive to be as genuinely enjoyable to be around as Misaki. She’s a real sweetheart, a bit of a jokester at times, the little “nyah” she puts at the end of her sentences is adorable to me, I don’t care if people think it’s annoying or stupid. She comes off like your best friend when she’s not in a bad place, she really does. Any time spent in the anime when she’s not frustrated or depressed is a pleasure to watch, she really feels like the type of girl that you can just chill with and talk about whatever for hours on end.

Keeping all these things in mind, the choice isn’t too hard to make, certainly nowhere near as hard as Akatsuki. So with that all said and done, here’s what I’ve decided on Misaki:

♥ WAIFU ♥

It’s not to say that Misaki is perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But the bad personality traits she has are not exactly as damning as Akatsuki’s were. Sure she might be nonchalant around me at first, but giving it time that won’t be a thing anymore. And I’m not exactly the cheating type, nor do I get myself into situations where she could be led to think that, so the whole jealousy part of her is a rare occurrence at best. So when it comes to Misaki, I’m really taking all the good parts about her. Like I said, she’s a best friend type of girl in my eyes, she’s got that adorable voice to add onto things and her athletic career definitely would be an added bonus, I would love to have someone around me at all times to keep my own health in check, I’m the type of person who doesn’t like being shown up, so if she’s doing well athletically, it would force me to push myself to be better and given my current shape, I could use an extra push. But yeah, real sweetheart and I see no reason to believe things could work out between us if such a person existed.

I’m actually not that big a fan of Final Fantasy VII as a whole, I don’t even have it in my Top 5 Final Fantasy games of all-time. However I can’t deny the plethora of beautiful female party members you have at your disposal in Tifa, Yuffie and of course, the aforementioned Aerith Gainsborough.

However when it comes to those three, Aerith falls at the bottom of the list between them and not just because she gets the least amount of screen time compared to the other two. While she’s indeed a very beautiful young woman, there’s just a lot about her that really puts her under the gun.

The most pertinent aspect of Aerith that rubs me the wrong way is how needy she comes off to me. She’s a very helpless character in the game, often getting captured or finding herself in trouble. She tries to come off as the sweet little cutie pie kind of character, but I never really bought into it while playing the game, I always just looked at her as the girl who I ended up using at the healer until there was no reason to use her anymore.

She also is one of those girls who talks about her ex-boyfriend a bit, which for me is a massive no-no. If it comes up in question, no problem, but to bring it up out of nowhere like she does when Cloud mentions being in SOLDIER, that’s not cool. When I start a relationship with someone, I don’t want to hear about what another person was like, I don’t want to have to be measuring myself to someone else, both literally and metaphorically.

It’s not to say she’s all bad, yes she does have those moments where she comes off really sweet, she does seem like she is that type of girl, she’s just got baggage to her and given the universe she’s from, it’s no surprise. Granted in the Kingdom Hearts series, she’s also much more to the correct side of being a sweetheart, but again that’s because in Kingdom Hearts, the baggage doesn’t exist, she’s just cutie pie Aerith in that series.

So that makes my decision pretty easy here:

♠ ONE-NIGHT STAND ♠

There is an attraction to Aerith, don’t get me wrong, but from all accounts that I have with her, she’s a pretty face with a ton of baggage to her and I’m not really interested in dealing with that kind of stuff, I’m not big on drama. Yes she seems like a really nice girl if she didn’t have the ex-boyfriend shenanigans and the whole Cetra thing with Shinra constantly trying to kidnap her and experiment on her. Y’know all that jazz. But in the end, I think she’s the kind of girl that if I met somewhere and we somehow ended up sharing a bed one night, I think that’s as far as I’d let it go.


So that’s this week’s editon 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.
