JapanaTen: The top ten anime girls I wish were real


The headline of this feature could be considered pretty sad, but I'm a confident guy, and I feel like I can proceed with this wishlist of 2D-to-3D transformation without worry of ridicule.

I take that back. And it's not that I'm concerned about ridicule from the non-otaku set. Who cares about them, right? I'm more concerned with what you think of my choices. Will you be grading me on the realism of my choices? Will you scold me for the inclusion of moe blobs in my list? Should I work age laws into my fantasies?

You know what? You're not in my fantasies anyway. I don't care. I'm going balls out! 

Here we go.

Oh, and clarify, I would want to make these girls real so that I may court them. Isn't that part obvious? Don't worry, I'm not going to go all high brow on you. We'll leave that to the anime snobs.

And no dated crap like Rei and Fay in here.

10. Saber - Fate/stay Night

I like my girls sassy. Bitchy, even. The sword and the incessant battling? I can do without. But the frilly armor and steely blue-green eyes? Do want. And could you imagine Saber in everyday clothing? I think she'd be quite fashionable. And sure, she's got issues, but what girl doesn't these days?

9. Yakumo Tsukamoto - School Rumble

Forget primary characters. Secondary characters is where it's at. Out of all of these girls, she'd make the best real-life girlfriend. She's smart, quiet, thoughtful, kind, and is a great cook. She's the kind you want to bring home to Mama.

8. Zange-chan - Kannagi

Not to leave out Nagi or anything, but I like her sister better. I'd pay up my 100 yen and confess to Zange in a heartbeat. Sexy nun fetish? No, I didn't say that. Quit putting words in my mouth.

7. Ayu Tsukimiya - Kanon

So I could flick her in the forehead until her head explodes. Seriously. My only reason for making her real is so that I can flick her in the head. Uguu~

6. Elfriede - Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase

Blondes have more fun, especially when they're tall and lovely, like Elfriede is. Oh, and she's a vampire, and that's always fun. She's bold and brazen, and she'll put the moves on you faster than you than you can say "long-blond -hair-and-glasses-combinaion-fetish." What?

5. Dokuro Mitsukai - Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan

Wouldn't this angel be handy? If you ever died, a swing of Dokuro-chan's club would bring you back to life. She's kind of a tease, but she's also a pervert, so it balances out nicely. And who doesn't love her theme song? Pipiru piru piru pipiru pi!

4. Kallen Stadtfeld - Code Geass

Who doesn't want in on this hot Britannian/Eleven action? She's the smoking hot bad-ass for this generation, replacing the tired old anime heroines that can't kick near as high or wear clothing near as tight. Good girl? Bad girl? Who gives a crap. Look at her!

3. Ami Kawashima - Toradora

There's just something about a crazy girl that I like, and Baka-chi ranks up there at the top. She's an idol, a model, and a goddess, but at the same time, she's a superbitch that does things so crazy that you'd push for her to be institutionalized. To recap, hot crazy girl.

2. Tsumugi Aoba - Kannagi

Yes, two from Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens. It was almost three. As for Tsumugi, In the vast world of anime childhood friends, Tsumugi is the best. The cutest. The....dumbest. I really don't have a good reason for picking her. She's just so freakin' adorable.

1. Mio Akiyama - K-on!

C'mon. Did you think I was going to pick anyone else? Moe snobs, get your collective sigh over with and hear me out. Out of all of these girls, come on, wouldn't Mio be a prime candidate? Tell me you wouldn't flip the freak out if you ran into IRL Mio. Look at her. You'd drop your coffee and your school books. You'd stutter and start sweating. profusely if you ever saw her. 2D has never had a better candidate for IRL.
