Best Characters of Every Show I’ve Seen – Part XI: “L”

Here’s another piece of poop. Spelling doesn’t count, and I have completed all shows in question.

Love Hina/Love Hina Again – Motoko Aoyama

Motoko

Okay, so here we have the classic awesome “girl-dressed-like-a-miko-who-has-a-sword-and-talks-big-but-is-actually-still-a-girl-in-the-end” character. Motoko is awesome and I’m just going to list some reasons:

  • She’s got a sword, and anytime a girl has a sword in an anime it sets that character up to be awesome right away.
  • She’s dressed like a miko. Cmon, that’s great.
  • Even though she gets angry a lot, she get embarassed a lot (which is like all girls….well…..all girls according to anime at least (IRL girls are more….normal))
  • She’s afraid of turtles.

That’s right, a samurai girl afraid of turtles. I love weird random traits that charcters have. Afraid of turtles? RANDOM = AWESOME. END.

Love Love? – Hikaru Jougasaki

Nice moves, bitch.

At one point, I actually dropped this show. Then I picked it up, finished it and liked it. Apparently it’s a sequal to Smash Hit. I haven’t seen Smash Hit, but I could follow this fine. I actually was watching Smash Hit at one point, but then I dropped it (just like Love Love?). I’ll pick it up later, finish it, and like it.

As far as characters are concerned, Hikaru wins for the simple fact that she is a tomboy. I love the tomboy characters, they’re awesome. In case you’re wondering, Hikaru was raised by 6 brothers.

Lucky Star – Konata Izumi

A parody of "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time," which is my favorite anime movie.

A parody of "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time," which is my favorite anime movie ever.

While looking for a good picture of Konata (of which there are a SHITLOAD), I found a few that were different, and so here they are. What’s so special about those? Nothing, one was a DMC parody, and the other two were just different artists. That’s it. So why is Konata the winner here? Well, I did write a whole post about it before, but I’ll write some stuff anyway.

Lucky Star, if you’re wondering, had a pointless plot, but I still find it to be one of my favorite shows (top 30).

Why? Isn’t it the same thing as K-On?

No. K-On was an attempt at a show with no substance other than to try to make the characters more moe than the pervious episode. It actually wasn’t even a real show. Lucky Star at least dealt with different things from episode to episode, and it had this guy singing some endings. Holy Fuck, maybe that guy should be my favorite character?

. . . . . .

Nah, I’ll stick with Konata, because she’s funny with her repetitive otaku jokes. Whenever she talks, you know she’s going to talk about gaming or manga or something, for example, the whole “I’m reading” scenario that Baka-Raptor, an avid Lucky Star…..err…..non-liker, talked about. These kind of jokes, for whatever reason, amuse me. That, coupled with the parodies of other shit, make me like Konata and Lucky Star. That’s it.
