Top 10 Cutest Anime Heroines Ever

~ Top 10 Cutest Anime Heroines Ever ~

When we view different anime series, it usually (if not all the time) have a female main character or a “heroine” (unless you’re watching something concerning yaoi or BL, then that’s a different story). A female character that makes us jump with excitement; that makes us feel warm on the inside. We’ve all seen series that have one, or even multiple characters that fit into what I’m saying here. And thus, I have compiled together a list of my personal top 10 cutest female main characters in anime! Yippee!

My Thoughts On: Moe

My Thoughts On: Moe

If you’re a regular anime viewer such as myself, you’ve probably heard this phrase being used to describe a character or even be used in the actual anime series that you are watching. Either way, it is a fact that many non-Japanese viewers and fans of anime don’t completely understand the meaning of this word when used in the context of anime and its characters. There are actually two things that inspired me to write this My Thoughts On post; one is the recent review that I wrote on the Lucky Star series in which the word was used in (I also mentioned I would write a My Thoughts On post on the word). The other comes from a close friend of mine who only recently jumped into the world of anime – prior to me recommending a few series, my friends had never heard or watched anime in his life. Since then, he has become a massive fan but could never wrap his head around the context of “moe”. So here you are Jose (that’s his name, by the way), here’s a personal lesson about moe to you (and to whoever is reading this at the present time).

Listen up, Jose!

“Cute has just reached the ultimate level!

As I love to explore the many different anime series that have existed to this day, I tend to watch many series that many so-called “anime fans” tend to not know. This is again, one of the many. A shame, considering this is probably one of the cutest series you will ever watch in your life. And I am not exaggerating when I say this.

Hidan No Aria ~ Review

Hidan No Aria ~ Review

“High action scenes mixed with romantic comedy that doesn’t cease the fan service”

This anime is another one of those that have been adapted from a long-running light novel series, much like The Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi and Shakugan No Shana. However, out of the light novel anime’s that I have watched (and I have watched a lot), this one seems to be a little different.

Hidan No Aria revoles around the main protagonist Kinji Toyama (pictured above on the far right) and his time as a Butei; a special qualification that allows for armed weapons use and capturing criminals. After a tragic accident and the loss of his brother, Kinji decides to quit becoming a Butei. Then one day, from the sky, a young girl named Aria (pictured above in the middle) appears and tells him to become “her slave”. While searching for the Butei Killer that threatens the two, Kinji soon realises that his future as a Butei will start to drastically.

Both voice actors of Kinji (Junji Majima) and Aria (Rie Kugimiya) have been known to play in many protagonist/heroine roles together in many anime series (e.g. ToraDora! and Zero No Tsukaima)

Like your average light novel, there is a strong genre of romantic comedy, where the Kinji and Aria end up getting closer and closer together as the series progresses. And much like most romantic comedies, this story involves some harem elements. What was a nice change to your average romantic comedies was that this series contained many action scenes, and not the half-assed ones that you could imagine. I believe this was a big plus to the story and the series in general.

Hidan No Aria may have a few shortages concerning character development and overall execution, however this should not stop you from not watching this series. And of course, the famous Rie Kugimiya, who is known in the anime business and by fans as “the queen of tsundere” lays an excellent role as Aria, and definitely makes the series that much better.


The Final Judgement:

Recommendation Level: 3.5/5 – Strongly Recommended

Final Score: 6.5/10
