Anime Females

I keep mentioning my favorite anime females.  Utena, Lafiel and everyone.  Here's the full list as it stands.  Since, I've already made it clear who the top ones are, there's no point building up.  Besides, this list is easier when I start at the top and work my way down.  The list only grows.  So new ladies will simply be crammed into their appropriate places. 

1.  Utena (Revolutionary Girl Utena)-  The total package.  Pretty, athletic, reasonably smart, capable, and fun.  There is an unshakable core of nobility and honor to her that makes her really incredible. 

2.  Lafiel (Crest/Banner of the Stars)-  Many of the same qualities as Utena, but she also brings a greater edge because she seems to have more of an attitude to her.  Still falls just a little flatter overall...because well...to me Utena is just one of the top anime hotties.

3. Rin Tosaka (Fate Stay Night)-  Once again she shares many of the qualities of the top two.  Good deep character; she plays at being tougher than she ultimately is...though she's certainly holds her own.  Like the other two, she is intelligent, and capable.  And she is one of the few that surpasses Utena in the looks department.  Still, ultimately she still falls just short of the others...and I can't really explain why.

4. Naomi Armitage (Armitage the Third Poly Matrix)- Competence, attitude, and looks.  Note this applies only to the Poly Matrix Armitage.  In Dual Matrix, they changed the art style too much (and the English voice actors) and I was no longer a fan. 

5. Ryoko (Tenchi)-  Just awesome.   In many ways, she's the only one in the show that you can see how deeply she cares for Tenchi (because I'm pretty sure she's the only one who does).  As to why she's on the list: attitude, energy, bad-assedry...and not a bad body. 

6. Saber (Fate Stay Night)-  Back to those same qualities.  Maybe losing some to the others because she is too rigid and unbending when it comes to her honor.  It's a good thing to have, but at this level it detracts from her humanity a bit, which is why she falls this low (though I love, love the scene with the stuffed lion...).

7. Teletha Testarossa (Full Metal Panic)-  Okay...this is a hottie pick.  Sure, I like Tessa, but she's lacking compared to the others...except when it comes to looks.  But she loses to no one, not even Rin or Saber there in my eyes.  A lot of guys look at Chidori, but I prefer Tessa.  Not only is she more attractive (once again: to me), she's not a freaking bitch.  By and large, she keeps herself composed, but other times she gets out of her depth which keeps her human.  Maybe a little too prone to make a fool of herself (at least in dealing with Sagara).  Overall I'm just a fan. 

By the way, the 4-7 spots are really tightly packed and these ladies can shift between these spots based upon any random whim of mine.  The first three are pretty well entrenched after that it gets iffy.

8. Lina Inverse (Slayers)-  Almost all attitude and competence here.  She doesn't match any of the others in looks, but no one is more competent or has more of an attitude than she does.  That counts for a lot. 

Not rated on account of being a kid: Ruri Hoshino:  Yeah, but if she were a few years older she would shoot up the list.  One of my favorite characters ever, while technically a female, her age prevents her from being anywhere on a list where looks weighs so heavily.
