This is the second part of my list, hope you guys enjoy it and share a comment, also i would like to say that if there are any mistakes in my expressions or my grammar, please let me know, because as a non English speaker is a great way to learn and improve, so let's start.
5.- Akiha Tohno from Tuskihime
Probably the least know character in my entire list, Akiha is a character from the manga Tsukihime, there is also an Anime, but to be honest, i didn't like her much there, i mean, she has the same personality, but she doesn't display her powers, so once again, i'm going with the Manga version.
I know this manga because of the game Melty Blood Act Cadenza, some friend import it because he was a huge fan of the Anime, anyway, the game is great, is a figthing game, think about Darkstalker in terms of gameplay, and Akiha is my favorite and best character, so i really like the game and i have to know more about the characters and like i say, the Anime is good but not that good, so i went for the Manga and i found it a lot better.
Akiha is the current heir leader of the Tohno family, a wealthy family that has a little peculiarity, they have demonic blood trough their veins, so in order to display those powers she needs the human heat, and the best way to obtain this is drinking human blood, now, that's cool, specially when she drinks it from her hot young maid and this may sound ecchi, but is not at all.
Let's talk about her personality, she is a kind and nice girl, a little bit though with her brother, nevertheless she loves him, maybe too much for her own sake, but what i really liker from her is that she is like this refined lady, but when she or somebody she cares is in danger she shows her powers at full, and she kicks ass, maybe that's why i like her so much, her power is so cool, and i love her design too, a dark haired girl, but when she is serious, her hair turn red like blood, she goes from sweet and kind to a fierce fight.
I love her hair turning from black to red.
4.- Maka Albarn from Soul Eater
One of the reasons of why Konata is in number 6, this girl from Soul Eater is one of my new favorite girls, the show is great, and i can't wait to finish the Anime to start reading the manga.
Let's describe her design, she is a skinny young girl (14 years old i think) wearing a school skirt and a black long coat, pretty cool looking design if you ask me, also her main weapon is a Scythe, yep, a scythe, that's even more cool, you dont see in Animes this kind of weapon to often, it's different from your usual sword wielders, and the action sequences with her weapon are really well done.
Maka is a meister, a meister is a term used in the series to describe a person who has a weapon with a soul, she is a student from Shibuesen, a school to teach young meister how to hunt persons with evil souls, so, Maka and her weapon, Soul Eater have to hunt 99 souls and 1 witch soul to become an ultimate weapon, and of course, Maka could become a recognized meister just like her mother, which she highly admires.
What i like about Maka besides her design and her fight ****is of course her personality, at first she is a confident student, very smart by the way, willing to face the dangers of her mission, but after a dangerous mission that almost cost his weapon life she start to feel insecure and scared that because of her another accident could happen, so she propose herself to become a stronger person facing her fears and overcoming them.
One more thing that i like its her humor, Soul Eater is a very comical show, it mix action and jokes too often, more than most shows were they are too serious or too comical, Soul Eater is like 50-50, and i have to tell you, that the comical aspect works really good, and with Maka its not the exception, when Maka have funny moments like the Maka Chop she is not annoying at all, like for example Sakura Haruno, instead she is fun to watch, her voice, her expressions, her faces, they are all really good, and that make her a really likable character. Almost forgot, her seiyu is great, i read that is her first job, but she did an incredible job, really, really good job, IMO since Aya Hirano's Konata, i haven't heard such a great job, she can say funny lines and dramatic ones and you really believe her, that's why i like so much Maka Albarn.
In my opinion she is a great character and her relationship with her weapon is highly enjoyable.
3.- Inoue Orihime from Bleach
What a huge surprise was this character for me, first i just wanna say that Bleach is another series i'm recently watching/reading, and even though i knew about some of it's characters i honestly believe that Orihime was just the sex symbol of the series, thank God she is not.
Orihime may look like your typical Anime bimbo huge breasted girl, but she is way more than that, at first she is like this dumb girl in love with Ichigo, then when her brother attacks her, she shows some more of her personality, she shows a more serious and responsible attitude, even in this point, she still looks like a second character with major role here and there, specially with her changing personalities, sometimes she is really eccentric, sometimes she is a clueless weirdo, and sometimes she is like the most intelligent person, then she develop her powers, and that's where you realize that she is more than just a bimbo, she is a great character, she is a main character after all, from here, you just have to watch her evolution, slow, sure, but she is really trying to improve.
Then, and thanks to her new powers she cannot avoid to feel weak in comparison to the other members of her team, and even when she tries and tries, she is not as strong as she would love to be, and because of that, Ichigo needs to save her sometimes, and this make her special too, because she is like a modern lady in distress, i mean, today we have characters like Maka or Lucy, so strong and independents, but Orihime sometimes is a girl who needs to be save and i dont know why, but i like that, so, because of her clever design, her good seiyu, and her evolution and her multiple personalities it's why i like Orihime so much.
I love how she goes from serious to funny to almost anything.
2.- Asuka Langley Soryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion
The most complex character in my list without a doubt, first, this Anime show me, no, let's say that proves me that Anime is not only for children, in the 90's there were so few Animes here in Mexico, like Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, Mazinger, Escaflowne, etc, and there were good, really good, but it seems that all the Anime was like that, later, in a manga convention i found this series, Evangelion, and wow, here is when i realized that Anime can be a way to show and transmit emotions, deep emotions, and with it's characters you have 3 different complex persons, and my favorite one was Asuka.
If you are a fan of Anime in general, is almost sure that you know who Asuka is, and what she represents as one of the most tragic characters ever, so i'm just gonna give a quick description and of course, why i like her.
Asuka is the pilot of the Evangelion Unit-02, she has a difficult temper, she is a proud girl, very proud, she feels superior and had a bad temper, she can make you feel scum, yet, you have to admire her because she seems a very confident person, but what a shock, this brutal personality is just a wall to hide her true personality she is just an insecure and vulnerable girl, thanks to a heavy trauma when she was a little girl, what happened? well, her mother went crazy thanks to an experiment and later she kill herself and Asuka was the one who found her, pretty heavy right.
Through the series her relationships with all the characters are really complicated, specially with Shinji, they have a Love - Hate relationship, in reality, deep inside she loves him, but thanks to all her traumas and superior complex Asuka is unable to open herself, she is just like a wall, she can't be in touch with her feelings and that's just sad, a proud girl who inside is just a little girl that want's love, but is unable to accept it or search it. Thankfully, she seems to have a happy ending...well, kind of, at least is better than others and i love how in the movie she regains all her confidence, and even by the very first time she seems truly happy, at least for a brief moment.
Both her design and seiyu are really good, she is a redhead girl with a cute face, and her voice represents it very well, also, i love how her seiyu speaks German very fluid.
Asuka is definitely one of my most memorable fictional characters ever, not only in Anime but in fiction too, and she was my number 1 girl until recently, too bad she is number 2 now.
She is disturb, really disturb in such a sad way that you can't stop feeling sorry for her and yet, you have to admire her courage and determination to prove the world she is just superior to anyone else.
1.- Suzumiya Haruhi from The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi
Finally, my number 1 character, my favorite Anime girl ever, Haruhi, yep, predictable? maybe, but she has merits, she is the most original character i have seen in a while, she looks like an ordinary girl, but she is really complex and eccentric and at the same time, she just looks like a spoiled girl, but besides that, she is also a God...? if you haven't watch the series, you should.
Anyway, just like Asuka, Konata and maybe Orihime, if you are an Anime fan, chances are that you know this character very well, anyway, i'm going to describe her.
Haruhi has the power to destroy, create or manipulate the world according to her emotions...wait what? yep, she is not an ordinary girl, nevertheless, she doesn't know about her powers. so the members of her club, The Brigade SOS, need to maintain Haruhi happy and entertained so she dont destroy the world, bizarre isn't?, i mean, the whole idea that a teenager girl full of volatile emotions can destroy the world just because she is sad is frightening and fun of course.
Like all the characters in my list, Haruhi has a deep story, she was a little girl proud of her own existence, until, in a Baseball game she realized that she was so insignificant to the world that she though, what's the meaning of my existance if no one ever notice me, from there she start to search something more in the world, Aliens, Time Travelers, etc, anything to help her discover that life is not meaningless, oddly enough, when she reaches the institute her God like powers awake, maybe because she finally find someone who might think just like her.
Like i already said, her powers react to her own feelings, and that's a huge problem because her personality is so strange, she can be nice and all, or a really mean girl, even worst, she may be in loved with Kyon and he has a strong, to strong maybe, friendship with Mikuru, so Haruhi get's really jealous in this situations putting the world in danger if Haruhi doesn't get happy soon, and this creates some interesting moments.
Also she shows an evolution, while at first she may be antisocial as she come in contact with Kyon, she is more open to her true feelings, she is competitive and eccentric, hyperactive and full of energy, yet, really antisocial but more and more often she comes to realize that whenever she does something right, people thank her and appreciate her, making notorious changes in her, she is also really funny and persevering, she won't stop until she get's what she wants.
I almost forget, her design and Seiyu, well, she is a gorgeous character, nice face, nice expressions, nice humor and of course a sexy image, and let's not forget who her Seiyu is, Aya Hirano, yep, the third character in my list voiced by her, and like always, she does and incredible job as Haruhi, you almost can feel the energy in her lines, anyway, Haruhi is just the full packet, she has a nice design, she is powerful, really powerful, she is funny, eccentric, i mean, she has a lot of personalities, and yet, she can be such a nice and tender girl, never forgetting that she is in the end, a schoolgirl who wants to find her way in the world but, when she is upset, she can turn the hole world into ashes, and i love that, just like i love the Anime, and for all this reasons, Suzumiya Haruhi is my favorite Anime girl ever.
She is just so over the top in everything, and yet, so likable, that it has to be my number 1.
So there you go my list, hope you enjoy this and i hope you share a comment too.
