Throughout the years we’ve ventured into several heroines, who personality is no different than a old perverted man. I’m talking smelling your underwear, stealing nude pictures of you, or simply consistently trying to deflower an innocent young man. Anime have a way of exaggerating women from men. Most men be more spoken, with outrageous behaviors. Usually ends there, while women actions are extremely more closer to crossing the line, unless we’re talking hentai. Rather it’s drugging you, walking in on you taking a shower, or throwing themselves on you, they give the phrase, having no shame a new meaning. So we decided to create a list with 14 of my personal favorite ideal women. I’ll be keeping out other characters who have already made an appearance in our other post. To shed light to some other heroines, putting them in our spotlight of shame. Meaning Characters from Highschool DxD, Shimoneta, Haiyore, Yakuindomo, & several others will not be added this time.
I seen just about every anime there is to see. Just like my personal favorite, aggressive yandere like heroines. I also enjoy a good climatic fight. Rather it’s emotional, bloody, or just cinematic. Each fight tells it’s own story, an each has it’s own importance to the narrative. I’ll try to stay away from the ones that’s in the limelight. (Naruto, One Punch, Mainstream like) an instead bring light to the other anime that isn’t as highly received. Although the overall characteristics of the anime leaves room for improvement, the animated scenes they give us are 2nd to none. Here’s a list of 5 of my overall favorites.
As much as I want to do King Arthur, I recently finished the Fourth Singularity in Fate/Grand Order. So I decided to do those focused around Saber first. I’ll like to note that in Fate/Prototype, both King Arthur, and Mordred appeared as males. Mordred the treacherous nephew, or bastard son depending on which work your reading. For now I’ll focus on later variants of his story. Born from a incestuous relationship from Arthur’s halve sister, the Queen of Orkney. Mordred’s fiasco is a wild ride, from slaying his father, to exposing Arthur’s wife Guinevere affair with Lancelot that brought ruin to Camelot. He’s ultimately the main reason for Arthur’s downfall, in which during war, he made himself High King of Britain. If treason had a persona, Mordred would be the personification of it.
Sir Mordred was born the youngest son of Queen Morgause, halve sister of King Arthur, an raised as the son of her Husband King Lot. King Arthur was told by his Prophet Merlin, that one day his child would destroy his realm. Once he realized that Anna Morgause was his halve sister, he planned to have every child born on the same day as Mordred birth set adrift. The large boat would later sink, an every child would die on this day. This day would be called would be called May day, or the May Day Massacre. Mordred, on the other hand would survive this day, an wash ashore on a island to be taken care of by Lord Nabur. Once Mordred was an adult he travelled to Camelot, an capitalized off his brother Sir Gawain fame, an was made the 13th Knight of the Round Table. From there he would accompany Sir Lancelot, who he promptly did not like, whatsoever. Although Lancelot, was considered an ideal Knight. Mordred would spend his time, raping married women, an killing their husband’s. Along with his brothers Gawain, Gaheris, and Aggravayne, he took up the name of Orkney, slaying the son of Pellinore, Sir Lamorak. Mordred conspired with Aggravayne to expose Lancelot, an Guinevere’s affair which pretty much started a war. This war would be the downfall of Camelot. Mordred recieved an Oracle from a Prophet, telling him of his true origin, that he’s King Arthur’s heir. This sent him into a frenzy ultimately killing the prophet, an the Knights that was with him. Favoring Mordred, King Arthur, made him the Regent of his Kingdom while he was at war with Lancelot. That plus he was out of the continent campaigning against the Roman Empire “Umu”. While he was away, Mordred made Alliances with Saxons, Pics, & the Scots and faked the news of King Arthur’s death. Mordred declared himself King, an he seige Arthur’s wife, Guinevere. She must’ve been a loose beauty, than again Arthur was lusting after his own sister. The Queen’s reaction is pretty debatable, an it varies in each form of literature. In one story she fled, an barricaded herself in London, an another she agreed an had his children. When news finally reaches Arthur, he immediately returned to retake his throne. 3 major battles soon followed, 2 of which was won by Arthur. The battle of Dover, than Barham Down. The final battle of Camlann also would 2 possible endings, both of which would leave Arthur, an Mordred as the last warrior’s standing. This is mainly influenced by if Guinevere, flees or agrees with Mordred. If Guinevere flees, King Arthur kills Morded but suffers a fatal wound. Just before dying he begged one of his Round Table Knights to toss Excalibur in the lake. If Guinevere agrees, she steals Excalibur, loses the sacred Scabbard, and gives it to Mordred, for the final battle. Mordred would use this weapon to kill Arthur, after which he was mortally wounded by the holy spear Rhongomyniad. Mordred would survive, an be prosecuted by Lancelot, who stilled deeply admired King Arthur. Lancelot would go on to kill Guinevere, than bury Mordred in the dead Queen’s tomb. Mordred would soon eat the remainder of her body, just before dying of starvation. His 2 son’s would later continue the rebellion of their father. One thing is for certain in each version of the story. The once proud Round Table, was now dead, along with the era of the Knights.
Now Mordred in the Nasuverse like her father, is predominantly women. So her birth, an story takes a few different routes compared to the Arthurian Legend. Although she keeps her status as The Treacherous Knight, she was born as a Homunculus Clone. If FullmetalAlchemist taught me anything it’s how well these stories tend to go. But just like her father, Mordred would be raised as the next heir to the throne. Who started a rebellion just to here Artoria call her son just once. S/N: Although Fate Grand Order uses AltriaPendragon, I’m going to stick with calling her Artoria Pendragon.
Birth Of The Rebellion
Mordred was born between the union of Artoria, an her sister Morgan Le Fay. A little background knowledge first, Morgan was a evil fairy witch who hated Artoria’s very being. Mainly for taking her spotlight from her family. Morgan enchanted Artoria a pseudo-male at the time, because that’s a thing, an stole her sperm to develop a Homunculus in her ovaries, because that’s also a thing. Morgan became obsessed with Mordred, telling her every day that was the rightful heir to the throne. Although her life was short spanned thanks to being a Homunculus, she believed it was her right to kill Artoria, an take the throne. Raised in secret, an told to obey the King until it was time, to never take her mask off. Like her mother, Mordred would also become obsessed with Artoria, but instead of hatred, it would be admiration. If you played the 4th Singularity in London, you’ll run into Mordred. You’ll realize she would randomly lash out at you, but starts to accept Mash. This would be because Mordred was ashamed of her twisted birth. She would unconsciously become violent, but start to feel sympathetic towards Mash, similar to Solomon’s reaction. As she began to rapidly age, Mordred started to worship King Arthur, as the perfect king. At Morgan’s behest, and a display of her suburb swordsmanship, she was named the 13th Knight Of The Round Table, an given a Sword of Legend. Unlike her counterpart in the legend, Mordred was the ideal knight of chivalry. Spent her duties trying to impress her king, even when she had a huge disdain for other humans. Morgan being the bitter sister she is, used this opportunity to tell Mordred of her unorthodox birth. Telling her that the King doesn’t know, neither would he care to know, nor love a filthy child. Instead of feeling hatred, she felt joy, alive for the first time. That she actually felt she was the true successor of the King of Knights, mind, body, and soul. At this point Mordred is ecstatic, happy that her godlike father figure is actually her father. She decided to tell Artoria of this, but instead of open arms, she was immediately rejected. Telling her that she would never accept Mordred as her legitimate child, or make her successor to the throne.
At this point Mordred believed she was rejected all due to her mother. She believed Artoria’s hatred for Morgan was the reason she was seen as a dirtied child. The words Morgan spun in her mind, turned her deep seeped love for King Arthur, into unfathomable hatred. Soon after the Round Table began to distrust Artoria, an a rebellion broke out. Mordred became the leader of this Rebellion, an she seized Camelot for herself while Artoria was on a expedition towards Rome. After returning from a prolonged battle, Artoria returned to a ruined Camelot. Mordred declared she never loved King Arthur, an that Artoria threw Camelot into ruin because of her unnatural personality. The battle went on for a few years until the final battle in Camlann. The Knights that stayed with the King died, leaving only the two on them on a pile of corpse. Which is in fact, the scene Artoria reminisces about when she becomes Saber. So the pile of dead bodies she’s standing on in the opening of the Fate/Stay Series with Excalibur, was this moment. Mordred claimed everything was pointless, now since the country was destroyed. She blamed Artoria for not making her the rightful heir, an how much she lamented her birth. She asked if her rejection was due to Morgan being her mother. Artoria simply stated that Mordred just didn’t have the ability to run a country. Since she actually didn’t genuinely care for people. She was ultimately defeated while pierced with the Holy Spear Rhongomyniad. Upon collapsing she reached to touch Artoria hands just once, but she was rejected once again being denied to even die in peace. Still bound by a curse her mother placed on her, she continued to swing her sword even after death. She fatally wounded Artoria who died, soon after having one of her knights permanently discard Excalibur. Camelot an the Era of the Knights came to a end. Makes you wish for the reunion of the two as servants. Only fair, since Gilgamesh got to see Enkidu again, even though he was actually Kingu, sent to help Beast II. (Tiamat) In the end Mordred even despised those who sided with her. Confused as to why they would follow her, someone who only cared for herself, over her father, who devoted her life to her country.
Holy Grail Wars
Mordred was summoned by Kairi Sisigou, as a Saber apart of the Red Faction. Her wish was to simply pull Excalibur, an prove to her father that she’s the rightful heir to Artoria once an for all. That Morgan being her mother didn’t matter. Kairi, & Saber eventually hear of murders going on that could be linked to the war. They run into a strange poisonous fog, that ends up being the Noble Phantasm of Assassin of Black, Jack The Ripper. Saber’s overwhelming strength immediately destroys the fog. Just before they could fight Archer of Black, Chiron interfered. Since they were also investigating the murders, assassin immediately retreated. Saber in the process attacked Archer, while her master attacked Fiore. Although they were equally matched, they both soon retreated also.
Mordred, & Kairi arrived to their first large scale battle a little later than the others. This battle between the Red, & Black faction would control the ongoing war. Mordred encounters a injured Rider Of Black, Astolfo. Mordred easily overwhelmed Astolfo, she also goes on to defeats Seig, Saber Of Black, who tried to protect Rider. Surprised to run into another Homunculus, she get’s ambushed by Frankenstein, the Berserker Of Black. Frankenstein is also unable to overpower Mordred, as she was beaten to the point of disappearing. Fran attempts to use her Noble Phantasm as a suicide bomb, which also fails thanks to Kairi. Seig, and Mordred, battled one more time using their Noble Phantasm with Mordred being the victor. Before she could kill him, Spartacus, Berserker Of Red interrupts the battle an Seig escapes. Later on Mordred killed Astolfo master, Celenike. Who tried to force him to kill Seig, since he seemed to care for him. At this point the Black Faction is clearly losing this war. But looks can be deceiving, since Mordred end up forming an alliance with the Black Faction, after saving Jeanne De Arc, and Astolfo from Hanging Gardens Of Babylon controlled by the Assassin Of Red, Semiramis. Mordred despises Semiramis, saying she has the same disgusting smell as her mother Morgan. Jeanne manages to convince Mordred to help them stop AvicebronNoble Phantasm. With the help of Seig, they destroyed his golem. Afterwards along with Jeanne, they attended a meeting with the Black Faction, creating an alliance between them to stop Shirou.
Mordred storms the Hanging Garden, to confront Semiramis, overwhelmed even with the use of her Noble Phantasm. When Mordred believed she was about to die, she realized her wish isn’t to simply replace her father, but just to see her smile once. At this moment Mordred came to realize the reason she started her revolt against Artoria, was to simply relieve her of her burden. Kairi manages to save Mordred, only to get fatally wounded in the process. Afterwards Mordred somehow dealt the final blow to Semiramis. Unfortunately once the smoke cleared out, they both died in the process. With both of them stating their true wish for the grail. One to bring happiness to her emotionless father, an the other to revive his dead daughter.
Modred plays a key part in the 4th Singularity she appears in. She mysteriously appeared along with several other servants. Unprecedentedly majority of the ones that appeared, were the same one’s that appeared in Apocrypha. She even battles with Artoria Alter, her evil father, or who she claims was her true self. Really wish they dove farther into this meeting, but we all know Artoria will never accept Mordred. Unfortunately she was badly injured in the final battle with Solomon, so badly that Anderson sacrificed his life to save her’s.
Mordred was summoned once again in the 6th singularity. This story w Ias a pretty interesting twist, with a fated reunion. But first an explanation, Mordred was summoned along with the Knight’s of the Round Table by the Lion King. The Lion King looks pretty identical to a Lancer Artoria. But if your hoping for a reunion between Mordred, an her father you won’t find it here. Especially since Mordred also had no memory of her time in London, or her time with Mash. So the tearjerking moment she had about her father, she don’t remember. The Lion King is a Divine Spirit who took the appearance of Artoria. So in shorts she’s the GoddessRhongomyniad, who is basically a Divine Ghost with a Holy Spear. She told the Knights they had a halve a day to decide, rather to side with or against her. Mordred, along with Gaiwain, Lancelot, Agravain, Tristan, and Gareth, decided to side with her. They killed the remaining knights, than formed Knights of the Lion King, with each recieving a gift, Mordred would recieve the “Gift Of Rampage,” an annoying little skill that allows her fire off her Noble Phantasm every turn. They rampaged through the Holy Land, killing everyone that opposed them. During her battle with the False Crusaders,Gareth sacrificed herself to beat Richard I. Mordred begged her saying it was no need, but Gawain killed both of them anyway. From here the Holy City was established, with Rhongomyniad as King. Mordred was the only Knight who wasn’t granted citizenship in the city. Remaining forbidden from staying due to the events with the False Crusaders. Needless to say she didn’t care much, as long as the Lion King had a need for her. Up til Mash finally killed her, Mordred had undying loyalty towards the Lion King.
Mordred’s Father, an her greatest sin ever committed.
Princess version of her dad who carries Caliburn, the sword Mordred used against her.
Mordred, & Agravain used Lancelot’s affair with Guinevere to bring ruin to Camelot under Morgan Le Fay orders. Although Mordred had no idea her mother manipulated her.
Mordred’s halve brother, who was also killed by Mordred during the war of Camlann. Gawain believes he’s the reason for Artoria’s death, due to him forbidding Lancelot from fighting in the final battle against Mordred’s betrayal.
Mordred’s halve brother, who worked as Morgan’s assassin. He manipulated Mordred under her orders to expose Guinevere, which ultimately got him killed by Lancelot in a fit of rage. Which explains why Lancelot shows up as either a Berserker or Saber.
How much do you really know about Gilgamesh? I mean really, besides his egomaniacal personality, that screams, get on your knees mortal. Gilgamesh is based off the lore from the Epic Of Gilgamesh. I’m going to skip his Grand Order appearance. His dad was Ulgabanda, an his mom was the Goddess Rimat-Ninsun. His mom would later help Gilgamesh in his adventures, explaining the meaning behind his dreams. Gilgamesh birth was to signal the end of the Age of The Gods, an rise of Humans. His path was to dispose of the Gods, an loath humanity.
Epic of Gilgamesh
First thing first, Gilgamesh was a historical king of the Sumerian City, Uruk. During the Epic of Gilgamesh, he would become known as a diety. There are as a now, 5 well known legends of his exploits. Gilgamesh, a demigod, befriends Enkidu, who would eventually go on adventures with him. He battles Enkidu when they first met, an realizing he met his equal, Gilgamesh uses his Gate Of Babylon, for the first time. He hated the idea, but he would eventually turn to enjoy the idea of using his treasures in such a way. Around here, is when it start to split from his Fate Counterpart. Enkidu was created to rid Gilgamesh of his arrogance by the Gods. After befriending the King, Enkidu would defy his very creation an side with Gilgamesh. Enkidu saw no wrong with Gilgamesh, only that he didn’t bow to the Gods, although he profusely admired them. Ishtar, The Queen of Heaven, fell deeply in love with Gilgamesh, an wants nothing more than to marry an have children with. He formly mocks, an rejects her invitation, calling her an unfaithful witch who corrupt men. She would than beg her father Anu to send Humbaba, the Bull Of Heaven, to spite them. This Beast would cause 7 years of starvation an destruction, which contradicts Ishtar authority, as the God of Fertility. Enkidu using the Chain Of Heaven, would allow them to destroy the beast. Ishtar being Ishtar, begged the Gods to put them to death. Shamesh, the Sun God of Justice, would plee with the Gods to spare both Gilgamesh, an Enkidu after the Bull destruction, which Ishtar demanded they pay. After of which Enkidu would later die due to an unknown illness. In Fate lore, he was returned to clay in Gilgamesh arms. This would be the first an only time he cried, in which he states, “Enkidu on this day, you are my one an only friend. Not for all of Eternity shall this change. This would send Gilgamesh, on a long adventure to obtain Godly Immortality. Enkidu death greatly affects him, making him terrified of his own mortality, so he visits the Sage of Utnapishtim, formly knowns as Ea. Unfortunately Gilgamesh fails every trial, an failed to obtain immortality.
Nasuverse lore compared to his actual lore has many similarities, but is ultimately vastly different, in many ways. I’m assuming to make his story more interesting, appealing, an able to build more off of it. One of the oldest poems speak of Enkidu going to the underworld for Gilgamesh. Type Moon takes a different approach.
Gilgamesh quest for immortality in the Fate Lore is one of my favorite backstories. That could become it’s own series, along with King Arthur Round Table, Jeanne D’Arc, and Elizabeth Bathory history. (She’s shoved down our throats in the game, as that annoying dragon idol who won’t go away, so I did a little digging on her, an I’ve been obsessed since. It’s not the best, but it’s a reason why she appears as much as she does.) Back on topic, Gilgamesh from here diverge off route from his Epic Counterpart. After seeing the death of Enkidu, who he viewed as his equal, his view on his own mortality hit him hard. Til than his only motive was obtain all of the world’s riches, have sex with every women he can get his hands on, an watch over humanity. So he sought out the Herb of Immortality.
He sought out Ereshkigal, to find the sage Ziusudra, a widely known immortal sage. This adventure would lasted for as many years he had already lived, thus he called it the greatest farce of his life. He would wander around for decades begging not to die. He loathe the idea of death, he loathed himself for forsaking his role, an most of all he loathed the Gods. Once he finally reached the underworld, he met Utnapishtim, who he describes as a waste of a immortality. Utnapishtim became a God, to gain longevity, becoming a halve plant in the process. Gilgamesh rejected the idea of becoming an immortal only to forsake his human desires. Gilgamesh told Utnapishtim, that there’s no point in immortality with no appeition. As Gilgamesh decided to leave so he finish his vault of treasures, Utnapishtim who was now full of doubt, decided to tell Gilgamesh a secret. This secret would be a way for him to obtain immortality without the God’s Mercy. Which would be the root of a herb that grew deep within the underworld. Instead of consuming this herb an becoming a plant, he would instead Jarred the herb, an used it to decorate his vault. Once he returned from the underworld he believed he could overthrow death itself, an finally avenge his only friend. Once he returned, before he could go back to his Kingdom of Uruk, he decided to rest at a Spring, in which Grand Order claims it to be “The Fountain of Youth.” It was at this moment Gilgamesh was truely happy to have been born. Finally obtaining immortality he could finally say he was free from his humanity, an declared himself Omnipotent.
At the moment he declared himself omnipotent, this would be his fatal undoing. A simple serpent that had a empty belly, followed the strong scene of the herb, an snatched it away from a bathing Gilgamesh. Once he realized what happened it was to late, the snake stole his supposedly immortality, an gained the ability to shed it’s skin. Instead of being medicine for immortality, it ended up being youth restoration instead. This would send Gilgamesh into a frenzied laughter, since the pride he just took in his accomplishments was all for naught. He would live as a human, an die as a human. He would finally return to Uruk, an rule as a quiet King, completing his vault of treasures. Well almost complete, he returned to the Deep Underworld, to obtain another herb just to finally complete his collection. He became humanities first an ancient hero, an first story to ever be created. The skin of the snake who stole his immortality would later become fossilized, being an immortal existence that Tohsaka Tokiomi, would use as a catalyst to summon Gilgamesh as Archer in the Fourth Holy Grail War.
Gilgamesh has a great disdain for the modern society, during the Forth Grail War, deeming everyone as to weak for his ruling. Gilgamesh had no wish per say, but he would rather exterminate humanity than see them touch his treasures. He decides to use the Grail to exterminate a great portion of humanity, an only leave a fraction alive, who he deems as worthy for him to rule over. He deemed Ishkander as worthy of him ruling over, an offered him a cup of the Grail if he would bow before him. He also became obsessed with Artoria (Saber) an declared she becomes his wife, an possession. In response he has no interest in Saber Alter, because he believes she lost sight of herself. When he witnesses Excalibur for the first time, he was reminded of Enkidu, an began to cry. Kirei, Tohsaka disciple disclose that Tokiomi, would use a Command Seal, to force Gilgamesh to commit suicide to obtain to the grail. He concludes they should form a new contract. Gilgamesh would soon let Kirei murder his former master. Gilgamesh would go on to defeat Rider, an than Saber, while now under Kirei. Kiritsuga would than force Saber to destroy the Grail with a Command Seal. With Gilgamesh being directly under it, he gets drenched in it’s after effects, which gives him a flesh body again. Now that he has a physical body, he believes it’s time to remake humanity into his perfect image. He would continue to serve under Kirei for 10 years, until the next war. Gilgamesh would use energy from Orphans from the great fire to sustain himself, after which he uses temporary youth from his vault to blend in with humanity for the time being.
Gilgamesh suddenly appears as an antagonist in this route, he appeared on top of a highrise, looking only at Saber, while Caster, and Shirou all stare at him confusingly. He than reminds her of his marriage proposal, after he immediately kills Caster. Rin, & Iilya, becomes confuse with his mere existence, an attacks him without remorse. Of course they failed, an laughed as he left, claiming Shirou residence was to shabby of a household. By now Gilgamesh personality greatly changed, an he wants is Saber hand in marriage. The author of the series, describes Gilgamesh change as a transformation, from self proclaimed arrogant king, to a horny teen. In spite of this, Gilgamesh only sees her as an unobtainable flower. Once he finally acquired her affection, he would immediately grow bored of her. Being he only loves her as she rejects him, a treasure he can chase for eternity. Can you imagine having a Overpowered Stalker, that can crush dimensions. Gilgamesh would soon ambush Shirou, and Saber, an strike down Shirou. Claiming he only haven’t killed him because Saber would disappear. He starts to basically beg Saber to be his, an leave Shirou to join him an Kirei, explaining he had excess to mana for her to use. Gilgamesh decides at this point, that he would reincarnate Saber the same way he was. Fate/Stay Night route, ends with Saber, and Gilgamesh trading the final blow between each other. Not really my favorite route, considering Gilgamesh was chasing Saber until the bitter end, saying Goodbye with a Smile on his face.
Unlimited Blade Works
I’m gonna try my best not sound pretty biased, but this was absolutely my favorite route. This would be mainly because Gilgamesh was more of an antagonist in this route. He was given to Shinji after his Rider servant was killed, soon after he kills Ilya and Berserker, ripping her heart out. In this route instead of Ilya being used for the Grail, Rin was to be used instead. Because of this Archer, who Gilgamesh refers to as his Fake, kidnaps Rin. Once Shinji failed to acquire Rin to use as the Grail core, he planned to use Shinji instead, with Ilya heart. Once the grail began to enact Gilgamesh wish to end humanity Rin, Saber, and Shirou appeared for one final showdown. In the Climactic Battle between Shirou and Gilgamesh, Shirou overwhelmed him inside his Unlimited Bladeworks. Becoming desperate after he killed Shinji, so he couldn’t replenish his mana, he went as far as to even use the Chain Of Heaven. Oblivious, Archer fired an arrow at Gilgamesh, which ended up killing him, ending this route.
Gilgamesh role in this route was severally minor, compared to his other appearances, even his Prisma route. Gilgamesh main, an last appearance was him appearing before Sakura Matou. He planned to dispose of Sakura, who have been infected by Angra Mainyu, became Dark Sakura, an Avenger, an master of the Grail. Unfortunately even after impaling her with The Gate Of Babylon, she was able to regenerate. She immediately devoured him with her shadow’s, although his ego makes him immune to mental pollution. He was instantly digested, an turned into mana for her. The King of Heroes turned into a full course meal, must’ve tasted heavenly.
Gilgamesh spent the majority of his time in this route in his childlike form. In this form Gilgamesh personality does a complete 180°. He even states that if his childhood self could realize what he was to turn into in the future, he would stop his growth altogether to remain a child forever. As a child Gilgamesh wasn’t what the Gods expected, even when they created Enkidu. This would confuse Enkidu also, torn as to why the Gods would want to kill someone so beloved. As he grew older, his personality twisted also, with him becoming the very person the Gods despised. He avoided contact with previous Masters or Servants. It wasn’t until the Fuyuki Eclipse, that he returned back into his adult form, to slay the endless hordes of Shadow Wolf Beast. This would give Angra Mainyu a opportunity to make his way to Heaven’s Feel. So if your wondering, than yes, this incident is what started the Heavens Feel route. Which takes place 6 Months after the events of Fate/Stay Night. Fate/Hollow is the combination of all the routes in 1 story, as everyone is stuck in a never ending loop. Fun fact, Rin, who was in London, appears in this story with a Kaleidostick. You know them Magical Girl Wands, that appears in Fate/Kaleid Liner.
If your tired of the endless fighting, deaths, an obvious plot twist, than I highly recommend you start Carnival Phantasm. Who doesn’t love a good parody. In this series Gilgamesh appears as a “friend nobody likes” or really even wants to be around. His appearance is that of a non stop rule breaker, who in the very first episode used his Noble Phantasm to kill Lancer. (Who dies endlessly in this series, he’s like Kenny off South Park.) Gilgamesh runs into Saber Alter in this series, although in the original Routes he has no interest in her, saying she lost her dignity. Here he develops a school boy crush on her, after a verbal backlash he received after taunting Saber. “The original Saber”
Gilgamesh has a one sided love for Saber, while she view him as nothing more than her nemesis.
Altera decided not to kill Gilgamesh’s father before he was born. She was later killed by Excalibur. Thanks to this, he decided to aid her in her battle for the Moon Cell. (FATE/EXTELLA)
To Gilgamesh, Emiya is no more than a faker pretending to be him.
Although Gilgamesh personality prevents from him getting along with anyone. He apparently gets along with Ozymandias as much as he did with Enkidu.
After getting to know Kirei he decided to betray his original master, an form a contract with him. He found Kirei to more interesting, an found him to be a keen spirit, who both didn’t desire a wish. Their both hopelessly sadistic.
Gilgamesh hates Ishtar’s very being, as such if he were to ever see again, he would more than likely erase the planet itself. Ishtar being the reason why Enkidu died after he refused her marriage. He believed Ishtar merging with Rin Tohsaka to an improvement on her personality.
To Gilgamesh, Enkidu was his one an only friend, who he would never replace, even as a servant. Enkidu’s death, is what ultimately spurred Gilgamesh on his great Journey.
This duo has never gotten along, an never will. Gilgamesh see’s him as a dog whose only worth is his lance. Even after Fate/Stay Night, they continued to bicker during Fate/Hollow.
Solomon really takes many people by surprise, especially anime only watchers. Since all that’s really made clear is that he’s the end boss. Not really any foregoings on when, or how he appears. You just get random scenes with him on the throne. Unless you played the game, Fate/Grand Order, you don’t really know much about him. Well he’s easily the top servant in all of the series, even the Divine Gods or Top 7 Servants (each class has a representative servant that surpass the others) pale in comparison. Though the anime only shows Goetia, his Demonic Counterpart.
Solomon actual history predates to 990 BCE, son of King David, Fun Fact: Star of David is named after him. Solomon would eventually take over an become the next King of Israel. With over 700 Royal wives, an 300 concubines, he only manages to have 3 children. Many of his concubines were foreigners, who would later split his kingdom in two. Solomon was the head of 48 Prophets, and 7 prophetesses of Judaism. Once the 1st century Apocryphal is established, The Testament of Solomon would later become the subject of many anime lore. Even appearing in the New Testament of Jesus. In fact, major series that involves magicians would use this Testament as the beginning of how magic started.
Solomon legends reaches deep within the community, one of my favorites being Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic. Which is based on the story, One Thousand and One Nights. Which speaks of a Genie who angered Solomon, so he locked in a bottle with his seal. Who would later be freed by a fisherman, an was forced to travel the world looking for other Seals of Solomon. Most of his medallions are still talked about, an used as lore material, as items that carries vast potential.
Angels & Magic
Seal of Solomon
Solomon & Asmodeus
Book of Deadly Names
The Palace without Entrance
Most legends has a Dark version to it, Solomon Apocryphal is no exception. Solomon sent out an army of demons to find a virgin who fled from him. Majority of his legends speaks of him controlling demons, others him being a demon himself. Type Moon, uses the Old Testament as their source material.
Solomon is a Grand Caster summoned by Marisbury Animusphere, during the First Fuyuki Holy Grail War. Who would later win, an use his first Noble Phantasm, Ars Nova. This Phantasm is the Legend of which Solomon’s, first an only act as a human hero. He returned his 10 rings back to the heavens. This Phantasm is in short, him letting go, an getting rid of every medallion, magecraft, miracle, and accomplishment he ever obtained. Which is extremely vast amount that surpasses even Gilgamesh. He returns God’s Gift, and losses his Clairvoyance, resulting in his death. As described Solomon legend is the very birth of magic. So in case magic was to ever become evil, his death would mean the end of the 72 Demon Gods, an even the erasure of the Throne of Heroes. Every miracle, mention, or even concept he brought forth would have never existed. Although this didn’t particularly erase him from existence, it erased the need to involve him any farther. There was no longer any need to defeat him, to seek him, his death was no longer the sought out, his accomplishments was no longer the pinnacle of magic. With this even the Throne Of Heroes was no longer needed. Every Hero was released from Duty. Solomon would send his last actual ring to the future, so Goetia was unable to know the True Name of his Noble Phantasm, thus making him unable to cancel it’s effect, when he would eventually use it.
Goetia is the personification form of Solomon’s 72 Demons he released, due to his Noble Phantasm. Contrary to their name, these demons were actually a system created by Solomon. This system was to promote proper reason with humans. They were to properly look after mankind after his death. But like all systems created with benevolence, they start to despise humans because of their relationship with their creator. Similar to Lucifer, they began to rage effectively becoming a curse to conquer humans instead. The system would eventually gain it’s own will due to the imperfections of humans, an turn into a Incineration Ritual. It’s goal is to obtain True Enlightenment, an reach the Origin, using human history as a stepping stone.
Purpose In Life
After Solomon uses Ars Nova, these demons awakened from within his corpse, with their own ideology, took his name, took on adventure to turn mankind into energy. Thus Goetia turned Solomon’s corpse into it’s nest, an resumed activity as Solomon. Similar to Obito pretending to be Madara, after his death. Without the whole, you know, living inside his corpse. Each demon has their own personality, so when talking to someone a specific demon comes forth to converse. That’s 72 different personalities in a single body. Goetia is indeed almighty, so mighty he forces the universe’s logic to obey him. Goetia feels nothing but animosity towards Solomon. Solely because he feels Solomon pointlessly created them to watch over mankind. He believed mankind can only suffer until their deaths. Since Solomon failed to correct humans, they felt it was necessary to call forth the extinction of mankind, since they had no value to life. Although being omnipotent, Goetia still couldn’t exist without humans. the sole and greatest “waste of resources” in this universe – despite being life forms of a higher dimension. Goetia could not accept these contradictions and unfaithfulness, and set out on a quest of reach the apex. This apex would be a quest that Solomon himself couldn’t reach, becoming the sole existence of the universe. Reset their existence to serve humans, an for instead all life serve them. In short, becoming the One True God.
Goetia would eventually ultimately take on the name, Solomon, after becoming a single form. This form would label themselves as the King Of Magecraft. He would began to create Holy Grails, an turn them into Singularities, that distorts human history. Which makes him the sole reason Mash, embarks on her journey with her Master/Senpai. He would than create mages with the purpose of turning into Demons. (Lev Flauros being one) These mages would detonate at 7 cornerstone points, an end mankind in 2016. Fun Fact: Zouken Matou grandfather of Shinji, and Sakura, serves him.
Once Fugimaru defeat Nicola Tesla, and Altoria Alter (Alter form of King Arthur) Solomon appears with 4 Demon Gods. He immediately defeats, Shakespeare, Kintoki, Tamamo no Mae, (Hurts my heart to even say) an nearly killed Mordred just before she was saved by Anderson. Who would later also be killed. After this he withdrew from battle seeing Chaldea as just a pebble with no real threat. Goetia would later confront Fujimaru, at the Time Temple, in which he attempts to Kill him, but is blocked by Mash. She would eventually defeat his Grand Caster Solomon form, in which he than turns into his Demonic Form, Goetia. Goetia tries to convince Mash to join him, since he sympathizes with her, but she firmly rejects his offer, seeing that she saw great potential in humans, while he only saw them as inferior beings. He uses his Noble Phantasm: Ars Almadel Salomonis on Fujimaru.Mash in turns blocks it with her Phantasm: Lord Camelot, but the price of this was her own life.
Huge Spoiler Ahead, on top of the bombshell that was just dropped
After Mash death, Goetia sympathizes with Fujimaru, an allows him to punch him, though he explains that both of them would he destroyed when that happens. Just before he can Romani Archaman interferes. An reveal that he’s the real Solomon, which disgusts Goetia. Goetia prepares to kill Romani, expressing that he’s to late to stop him, just before he can, Romani uses Ars Nova, removing Goetia immortality. This enrages Goetia, an he attempts to finally kill everyone. He was dealt the final blow by Fujimaru command spells, thanks to Romani sacrifice. With that the collapse of the Demon God Pillars, & Time Temple began. During Fujimaru escape, Goetia appeared again in front of him in human form, to stop his escape so they could perish together. Goetia, now mortal finally comes to an understanding with humans, saying he now understands why Romani sacrificed himself. Goetia uses the last spark of his life he has to finally kill Fugimaru. Stating as he vanishes “That brief life of humans is actually surprisingly interesting.”
Staring in his eyes sends your soul to a purgatory that he created.
His gaze forces Servants to drown in sorrow about their failes past.
All of Solomon Skills & Phantasm, besides revelation.
High Speed Incantation
Able to Summon 72 Demon Gods
Nega-Summon that cancels all Phantasms except Ars Nova.
9 Solomon Rings, because the 10th one is mia in the future.

Highlighted Summer Anime
Back on topic, we’ve seen some highlights, an some highly let downs. Some series we’ve been anticipating for so long, only to be crushingly disappointed, by a series of important scene skips, ab rushed animation. “Cough, Wiseman Grandchild, Cough.” Though I can get sidetracked by slandering each series one by one, I’ll like to point out a few Summer series that I’ve been personally was invested in since I read the Manga/LN.
Are You Lost?
A 12 Minute Series, showing 4 High School girls stranded on a deserted Island, because of a plane crash. This comedy, make light of the serious disaster they face. Since one of the girls been trained by her father to survive such situations, because why not, she teaches the girls how to hunt, build traps, an create a allergy test, even how to stay hydrated. Even if means drinking each other pee.
This series is as original as it gets in a sea of series that’s repeating the cliché. Nowadays almost everything has something in common in terms of where the story is going. Dr. Stone takes originality to a new level, where we see a world turned to stone. In this 24 Episode Series, we see Senku and Taiju rebuild civilization. As they battle Tsukasa, and his Empire of Might. Reminds me of Naruto with Senju vs Uchiha, with Empire of Might vs Kingdom of Science.
Ever seen a human spontaneous combust, in this series we see a Special Fire Brigade battle Living Infernos. This Brigade has the ability to manipulate fire at will, but we have Shinra, a youth who could also ignite his feet at will. Of course in this phenomenon there is always a inside faction that is creating these infernals at will. Shinra tries to find the culprit who killed his family in a fire.
If It’s For My Daughter, I’ll Defeat Even a Demon Lord
One of my personal favorites, that I’ve been anticipating all year. It’s something about these kinda series that really have me deep into every moment. We have Dale, a Highly Skilled adventurer, probably the strongest in the country. While on a quest, he finds a Devil Girl name Latina close to death. Unable to leave her alone, he decides to become her adoptive father.
Whats a season full of Isekai series without one with a Demon Lord. Though this isn’t what you’ll naturally expect from a Demon Lord Isekai, but it’s still a interesting anime to watch compared to others. Akira a game developer get’s transported in a game he manages. His character labelled Demon Lord, he becomes it’s embodiment. Along his travels he meets a girl that looks vividly familiar to Rem from Re:Zero. Series just full of misunderstandings surrounding our new Demon Lord.
Isekai Cheat Magician
We’re filled with Isekai series, an by it’s bland name it’s no exception. 2 High School students get transported to a magical land, both with exceptional magic capacity. Yes another overpowered series. Which I honestly don’t entirely mind. With monsters, dwarves, elves, an all types of magical creatures, we follow these two new adventures as they travel throughout this unknown land.
I’ve been anticipating this sequel for some time now. With the first few episodes living up to the hype. A story where Gods came from Heaven to find some excitement. Limiting their divine power, while offering mortals to fight monsters in a form of a dungeon. Season starts as Bell made a name for himself. Other adventures begin to become dissatisfied. We begin as The Apollo Famila starts to target him. And what’s a story with Apollo without his usual debaucher.
If your a fan of Fate/Stay series than this anime is a must. If your tired of the Emiya storyline, this series follow Waver Velvet, who fought side by side with the King of Conquerors- Ishkandar- during the 4th grail war. He eventually changes his name to Lord El-Molloi II, an challenges mysterious cases in the Clocktower. This anime is about his cases, as the mecca of all mages.
A series I wish had a longer duration time. A pure ecchi comedy through and through. We get a cute, and clumsy sempai who has some intense stage fright. She eventually ends up dragging, an forcefully creating a magic club with random members. This gag anime, shows us a way of how old style magic tricks could end up failing in a erotic way.
A Certain Scientific Accelerator
A spin off for those whose a fan of A Certain Magical Index. If your like me than you believe Accelerator should’ve been the Mc originally. So for him to finally get his series focusing on him is satisfying. We take place after he rescues Last Order, and take a bullet to the head. For those who saw the recently new season of Index, if it felt like a huge chunk of information was missing, this series will cover it. We’ll be getting a new Railgun Season Soon.
Do You Love Your Mom And Her Two Hit Multi Target Attack
How would you feel if your mother came along on your journey, and she was overpowered, while you were just average. In our Summer Season of Isekai, we have a series that’s taken over our Facebook. If I had a dollar for every pfp with this mom picture, I would be rich. “Not Joking”. Masato gets a random survey, which ends up being a government testing ground to introduce Nerve Gear. He ends up being transported to a fantasy land of a game. Just one trade off, his doting mother Mamako comes along. Viewers are already treating her like the Secone Coming or Kirito. This comedy Isekai shows us what would happen, if your mother came along with you on your adventure.
Need a series to lighten your mood. Than Machikado is what your looking for. This anime is pure comedic, from start to finish. They turned a Magical Girl series, that’s usually dark an grim, an made it comedic. One day Yuko Yoshida wakes up with horns and a tail, and learns that in order to cure her family from poverty curse. She has to murder a Magical Girl, an smear her blood for their deity. Doesnt help that Yuko gets a F in the brains department.
Teasing Master Takagi-san
As neutral as I am, I still generally have my favorites. So when I found out Karakai Jouzu was getting a second season I was ecstatic. This anime is as wholesome as it gets. Features Takagi who enjoys teasing her classmate, Nishikata who shows his embarrassment more than he would like to. With his constant failed attempts to tease her back. Throughout the second season you start to see a intimate growth between the two.
From Common Place To World’s Strongest
This series made huge waves with it’s manga, so you can definitely understand the intense criticism this series get. Some either despise it, or others hate it. Nonetheless it’s not being well received online. Hajime your average otaku, (how many people knew he was an otaku) an his entire class, including his teacher end up being transported to another world. While they all received God-like powers, he receives the title synergist. After getting his arm devoured he goes for Kaneki Mode, an start eating everything in site. Even go full psycho, and his hair turns white. Must mean your personality does a full 180. Despite this the anime has gone full skip mode to rush the series ahead.
Hensuki: Are You Willing To Fall in Love With a Pervert?
What do you get when you put a Fujo, Yandere, Masochist, Sadist, and someone with a Smell Fetish? You get Hensuki (Kawaikereba). Keiki, a Highschool Student receives his first Love Letter, an with it, his first pair of women underwear attached to it. An each possible girl has a unique personality. An extremely unique personality, from wishing to become his dog, to shoving freshly worn panties down his throat. What could go wrong?
Joshikoshi no Mudazukai
At the beginning of the series, you’ll get the Asobi Asobase sort of feel. 3 ridiculous teenage girls thriving through Highschool. Although it falls short on the comedy side, doesn’t make it any less funny.
How Heavy Is The Dumbbell You Lift?
What’s better than seeing the women while hitting the gym? Seeing anime school girls hit the gym. Yes, in terms of originality, this series is in a league of it’s own. The bottomless pit Hibiki is just another Highschool Girl. Once she realized her clothes are getting tight, she decides it’s time to hit the gym. She meet’s her soon to be long term friend Akemi, who just so happens to also have a muscle fetish. A recipe for disaster starts as Hibiki begin her journey for a great body.
O Maidens In Your Savage Season
This series has one of the most highlighted first episodes. I have never seen a series where a guy get caught wanking in his own room. Talk about invasion of privacy, she even takes her porn. Following the love life of the literature club, these girls heads are full of one thing only, sex. An each girl has a whirlwind of new emotions their about to experience.
The One’s Within
Here we have my favorite anime on this list, an for good reasons, an I don’t mean because it’s a Isekai Series. But because each episode has been as intense as the other. A group of popular live streamers are abducted, an forced to participate in the ultimate live stream. We have Btoom! Meet’s Danganronpa, with less killing. With a beautiful friendships building, to a long term stalker coming to light.
Upcoming Fall 2019 Anime
Now that Summer is now officially over, I’ll like to point out our new line up for the Fall Season, with upcoming new Winter Anime for 2020, in the next upcoming article.
Some time ago we gave our list of Top Male characters, so now it’s time for there more popular counterparts. When it comes to heroines, it’s so many to choose from we decided to make the list this time 25, aside from our usual list of 7. So what makes a quality Heroine or a Women Mc? In my opinion female characters are generally more judged than males in the general public. So our list consist of accepted widely by the public, but also appeal to us enough. Based on personality, accomplishments, and their fan base, but remember we try to stay away from Mainstream as much as possible. Nothing I dislike more than a character that been referenced 1000x. Starting with:
Have to start the first Heroine off strong, an Shinoa stands firm for it. The sarcastic, petite teen, who goes through a ever changing character development. Usually see her teasing an showing that adorable smirk of hers, with her overbearing confidence. Never understanding lost until her squad eventually loses, Shinoa realizes how much her mistakes can hurt her, when she finally learn to love someone. I personally prefer Heroines whose sure of their feelings, instead of second guessing every episode an have to restart from the beginning. Instead she gradually falls more for Yu, the more they fight together. If you haven’t saw Seraph of the End yet, your surely missing out.
Yui was the life of Angel Beats with her cheerful personality, an as crazy as it gets. In a anime like Angel Beats, Yui stood out, giving each scene she was in life. Which made it extremely dull once she left. From the way she acts, you wouldn’t be able to tell that she was once paralyzed since she was 4. Throughout the series Yui becomes extremely familiar with Hinata, even exchanging several blows, an wrestling holds. Hinata proposes to her, fulfilling her last regret. Leaving us with a bittersweet feeling.
Want some where the best girl wins, than you would have Mizuki, who becomes conflicted with her feelings for Nagisa, even if her bestfriend also loves him. Unlike most harem routes, Mizuki stands firm with the initiative to make sure he feels the same. Being the first to accept him due to friendly personality, Mizuki was the first to see the kindness in someone, whom the rest of the class clearly hated. When a heroine steps outside the damsel in distress to rescue someone else, even at the risk of her life, that definitely makes her a prime candidate.
This young protagonist, definitely made an impression from start to finish, as she relentlessly teases Nishikata. Even once they get married, an have a daughter it doesn’t stop, yet you can tell just how much she loves him, even as kids. You can catch glimpse of her affection, that’s plain to see to everyone besides the dense Mc. You almost never see female protagonists take the initiative like she does. (Excluding fan service anime) Throughout the first season, you can tell she truly enjoy her time with him, as she ask him to walk home with hee daily, an create excuses to spend time with him outside of school. Rarely see anime with time skips where they actually end up together. Usually the heroine ends up with his bestfriend, an he ends up alone narrating through his life. In Chapter 31 in the manga they officially get married.
In terms of raw power, Medaka is what you would consider a monster. She is what you would call the perfect women. Being only a first year, she places first on the national test, excels at anything you can possibly think of, getting inhuman results. Even being all powerful in her verse (animals are even terrified of her) she uses it help everyone, an anyone, even her enemies. She has the ability to copy skills, which puts her at about 100 skills, 3 trump cards, and 5 God modes. Even with all that, she is still overly smitten by Zenkichi, since her life changes once she met him at the age 2. (She even asked him to marry her)
I wonder how many times I done referenced Rory, as a Demi God her personality, makes me want to rewatch Gate over an over. Despite being immortal (961 years old), she is portrayed as a 13 year old girl. Who doesn’t love a loli death goddess who reaches ecstasy when surrounded by death, plus I love sadistic women. (But I hate Tsunderes) Rory one emotion she has left, is her love for Itami, since her anime is a harem, her attempts are always interrupted. As a immortal heroine, she wants to spend her last 40 years before she loses her emotions with Itami. Rory eventually makes a blood pact with him, in which she receives all the damage he takes, in which she instantly heals afterwards. If I had a choice of which Heroines I would bring to the real world, it would 100% be Rory.
Erica isn’t like one your standard Heroines in a Harem anime, especially one when the Mc is a God-Slaying King. As a knight she shows no fear, rather it’s fighting, or stating her love for Kusanagi. Love so strong she fought Athena in his name, who is considered one of the strongest of all Gods. She isn’t one for holding a monopoly as she let’s him have other girls, but she states that she is his one true wife. Passion like that is hard to find in characters.
Ako is what you would consider an Otaku. A shy, Ditzy girl, who hate normies, an refers to herself as a true gamer. Never going outside until she met Hideki in game, an fell in love. As the story progress, the once reclusive introvert girl, start to become a more energetic, happy person. This doesn’t stop her from flying into a fit of jealous rage whenever any female come near Hideki. Though her motto is still to rely on others, because of how lazy she actually is. In fact her dream is stay at home an play games all day, while her husband Hideki supports her. Her love for Hideki stems from her constant rate of being abandoned. So much she grew accustomed to it, until Hideki stayed by her side, now she refuses to leave his.
Milinda is an Elite who pilots huge robots called Objects. She eventually becomes romantically interested in Quenser, to the point she becomes excessively jealous over him whenever another women is involved. Considered a genius, with enhance mental capabilities, she’s able to predict an dodge laser beams that travel at the speed at light, just from a slight enemy movement. (She’s also a great Poll Dancer) Milinda faces many crisis throughout the series, due to her Object being extremely outdated. But with the help of Quenser and Heivia, she’s able to come out on top. (Which was unheard of in her story) When you achieve something you was expected to fail, they continue to expect you to achieve it. Because of this they are constantly thrown in ridiculous suicide missions repeatedly.
Easily one of my top 10 harem anime, an one of my most rewatched anime, The Ambition of Oda Nobuna, will forever have a place in my heart, especially Nobuna. Nobuna is just a teenage girl, whose goal is to conquer, an unite Japan, so they can be able to stand on equal grounds with advanced European Nations. She saves Yoshiharu, who finds himself inside one of his favorite games. Thus he uses his knowledge of the future to insure he makes her dream come true. Nobuna sometimes can get extremely violent, an emotional, as to either stepping on Yoshiharu face, giving him the nickname Monkey, or even when her father was on his death bed, she brought several monks to heal him. When they failed, she killed all the monks. Even threatening to burn the temple down, if Yoshiharu didn’t return to her. I personally enjoy watching a women put her foot down on your harem. (I might be a masochist)
Yumeko is a gambler wet dream, an biggest nightmare, since if you gamble with her, your more than likely to lose your sanity, an every dollar you have an probably your life also. When most normal people would experience fear, she feel extreme pleasure when the odds is stack against her. She’s probably able to find a needle in a haystack if you made a bet against it. She’s not undefeated, losing as much as wins, going into debt by the millions. Yet also winning billions, an also putting someone into a coma. Yumeko conquest of her school, started to tear the school apart as her an the President gambling addiction turned it upside down. I would love to see her an Sora “No Game No Life” have a gambling match together.
Misaka is an esper with the ability to control electricity, so powerful she can fire a simple coin at the magnitude of a railgun. Ranked 3rd as the most powerful espers, she certainly live up to the standard. Mainly in the Railgun sister anime, in Magical Index she is an tritangonist. Despite being considered a side character she goes to great lengths for Touma, even forcing her way to Russia just to protect him. Desperate to catch up with him, to be able to stand by his side, so she can eventually tell him that she loves him, this creates an unstable personality within her.
This picture screams “Umu” an I scream it every time. Nero is as overconfident as they come, an she has the abilities to back it up. Sorta like the overbearing Gilgamesh. She begins to develop feelings for Hakuno the more they fight together. Her love for Hakuno let her endure the pain she feels towards her real name. Though she look like she’s not trying to cry while stating it. Nero makes her entrance, just before Hakuno was about to die. Insteas of being summoned she willingly rushed to their aid. Someone who was weak, not a proper wizard, or even strong at that, she threw away her pride. That’s like Gilgamesh saying sorry, for his foul personality.
Rea was accidentally killed by her father, who pushed her off a cliff. Just before this she steals, an drinks Chihiro zombie potion in a suicide attempt. Once she died was resurrected as a zombie. Instead of a hungry flesh eating monster, she turns into a lustful eating monster. Which causes conflicting with her friendly emotions. As a zombie her limiter on her body is broken, thus allowing her to lift things 3x her weight. She is still a zombie an although there are ways to slow down the process, she will still decompose. Rea eventually ends up losing her mind to her “Eater State” an ends up eating Chihiro heart. It’s not love unless she eats your heart.
A young lustful alien, who works for the space defense agency to defend earth. She encounters love at first sight when she meets Mahiro. (One of my top 10 most annoying Mc’s) Nyaruko feelings for him is so intense, that she becomes aggressive with wanting to get married an start a family. Even after she officially graduated at the top of her class, she joins him in school once again just to be closer to him. As lustful as she is, she becomes very hostile against enemies an often abusive. She often joke about her power level, stating that the average person with a gun is a power level of 5, while her’s is at 530,000, with a Forth Wall awareness. Nyaruko as a character is hilarious to watch, as she isn’t against wearing her heart on her sleeve.
This narcissistic, liar, an self righteous girl is the reason I love Charlotte, aside from being adorable. Charlotte as a whole is a beautiful anime, with Nao standing right at the center. She became a focal point for Yu once he lost his sister to a horrible accident, though she blames herself for it. This accident caused him to go into a severe depression, that honestly you can’t blame him for. As a character who past haunted her, she refuse to legitimately trust anyone, but as time passed she grew to trust those she considered a friend. Nao goes through a perfect development romance wise. Once being unconcerned about the idea of romance, to being fully in love with Yu’s return. Introducing herself to the now amnesiac Yu, as her lover, as she waited for him as he traveled the world taking everyone abilities.
Ferris is the type of heroine that everyone seems to forget about. While to others it seem minuscule, to me her actions leaves a great impact. Her Partner Ryner, is easily one of the top 10 most dangerous Main Characters. An she leaps to his aid whenever his mind becomes full of bloodlust, risking her life on multiple occasions. Ferris has a intense obsession for Dangos. One so strong she brought 14 backpacks full of them. Ferris childhood wasn’t all roses neither. Being tortured, abused, an rape of incest to keep the bloodline pure. Ferris is able to best city destroying mages, with her inhuman physical strength. She was gifted with the ability to be the only one who can actually defeat Ryner, an slay the demon inside him. (Rather it would actually work is a mystery) But this ability comes with a price. If Ferris were to truely save Ryner, it would cost her own life, which would happily risk for him.
Mirai is the sole survivor of the warrior clan who can manipulate there own blood. Because of this ability was she shunned by her own clan. She is as shy as one can be, an could be considered a danderebut for her faults she hounds Akihito mercilessly attacking him. Akihito is yet another broken character, who can at times, go berserk. When he first does, Mirai was the one who was able to help him return to normal. Mirai spends most of her time struggling through life, not being familiar with slaying Youmu. Mirai was saved by Izumi, to be the only person who can actually kill Akihito. Falling in love with the person your destined to kill, always makes for a great story.
I always wondered how my dream demon would look. I should’ve figured it would be a beautiful lolita. Merry is a dream demon that connects the Dream World to the Real World, but doesn’t have to possess humans to enter it. Because of this she gets trapped in the real world, an searches for a way to get back with no memories. She spends her time with Yumeji fighting Dream Demons, or just falling on him. At first she thought she was sending them back, but she is fact killing them instead, this pushes her to a severe depression. They faced a ton of hardships as they looked for a way to send her back, this even caused Yumeji to get injured badly in a fight to protect Merry. Merry is later known to be the guardian of the dream door, whose life becomes dependent on it’s well being.
She might look 8, but she’s actually 598 years old. The once human, now turned vampire is considered one of the strongest beings in the series, but get back seated alot in the series. This is due to the story mainly being about Koyomi, an his adventures. She has her body parts stolen an scattered, causing her to revert to a child form, but if she was to recover them, she would age again getting her old personality back. (Which isn’t a good thing) She was once an emotionless being until meeting Koyomi, who returns her to her talkative state. Who often asserts her superiority in her speech. Her character is a loveable mascot, who helps Koyomi out against most of the oddities he faces.
Who would you choose as your Heroine from Guilty Crown, as much as I love Hare, an her shocked death, Inori stands above as one my favorites. A being that was created, an was a emotionless killing machine, who only wanted to follow Gai’s order, her character does a 180 altogether. Once she meets Shu her starts to smile, an feel emotions that was foreign to her. She begins by telling Shu that she belongs to him, due to an order, but this eventually becomes due to her feelings for him. Imagine a close minded girl, who killed on order, an only care to obey some guy who wanted to her. Turning into a friendly teen, who loves singing, an stating her undying loyalty the Mc. “Even if the entire world turn against you, I will forever be by your side.” Even once all was said an done, an Shu was about to sacrifice his life to save the world, she pushes him out the way, giving her own life in return.
This world class destroying angel fell to the earth just to protect Tomoki. Out of fear of her power the people of the Synapses programmed her to burn to the death if she was to ever return. I don’t blame them, she can travel the world in one panel, well over Mach 5000, an destroy a civilization in one attack, an that’s with her restrictions on. But when she turns into Pandora mode her abilities goes up by 370%, an able to take an newly advance Synapse, after she first destroyed it. Yet all she wants to is fufill her master every desire, no matter how lustful, vengeful, or outrageous it is. In response, if she feels any harm has befallen Tomoki she immediately resort to violence. Having a block on her emotions, she was unable to express them properly, or even understand what emotions was. Once she enter the Synapse with Tomoki, she confessed her love to him kissing him just before she burned to death.
Easily my all time favorite anime, and Shana stands at it’s core, along with the development the Mc goes through. What I enjoy most is a character who goes from good, but to obtain power they turn evil, just so they can stand equally with the person they love. Shana starts off as a unloving character, who didn’t even care about those she protected, in fact she was willing to sacrifice innocent lives if she had to. Even referring to Yuji as just an object. Shana was about to give the life of one his classmates, to restore the destroyed classroom, until Yuji insisted on using his instead. That deed was the turning point for her. Imagine a girl like this risking her life to save Yuji as she’s now deeply in love with him. That’s some intense development, an growth as a character, as she even starts to feel jealous whenever she see him around other girls. Yuji eventually ends up becoming something else entirely, making him overwhelmingly more powerful than her. In the end she refuses to kill him, using her love to reach him, an making him agree to never leave her side again.
Your either a Emilia fan or a Rem fan, an the fan base can get rather extreme. While I do love Emilia, an her pure heart. Her personality does not leave an impression on me. While others prefer a Heroine who does no wrong, from our list you can tell, I prefer a Heroine who starts off as your enemy, an grow to intensely love you. Which is the definition of Rem. Though whenever I ask what is the appeal they feel so much for Emilia, I always get hit with rhetorics of how many times Rem smashed his face in. Rem spent her 17 years in her older twin sister Ram shadow. (Surprisingly she handles 80% of the wordload by herself) At just 11 Rem’s village was attacked by the Witch Cult, cutting her sister horn off, an leaving them as the sole survivors, an barely alive. So when Subaru walk in smelling like a Witch because of Satella, you can just imagine why she would want to attack you. Despite this, she was saved, an grew a deep attachment for Subaru. To the point that even through rejection, she would still risk her life (Which she does several times) just to protect him.
Yes my all favorite top pick is more of personal favorite, than a non biased one. Anyone who seen No Game No Life Zero, would understand why she takes the cake. As her history she boasted about is not at all a lie one bit, she was every bit as maniacal as she claims. Commiting genocide just because she fell, killing our precious Schwi in her conquest for collecting heads. Yes, what is now her collection of books, use to be filled with heads instead. After the pledges was instated, an her God now dead, she remained in the library obtaining knowledge. Who would imagine that this indestructible killing angel, would become a slave to 2 humans, an even apologizing for her past sins, by licking the feet of a being she once considered to be a roach. Considered to the youngest Flugel, an also the most powerful. Although the anime doesn’t represent it well, Jibril falls in love with Sora intensely. Willing to merge her soul with his to create a hybrid Angel, also officially announcing that she in fact loves him, an that she understands it now. (Light Novel 5) In her quest she helps the siblings aquire the Warbeast, Dhampir, and Siren Nations, an even her homeland, Avant Heim. She takes an incredible u-turn in her regards towards those lower than her. With how cruel she was in Zero to how she is now, this development will forever make Jibril best girl.
Like many other’s, I kinda wasted my school life experience. I spent my time playing hooky, while others was becoming more an more inseparable. The concept of love was everywhere, an on everyone’s mind. So I often find myself trying to find anime with a school life experience. Love, drama, friendship, it’s an experience to what could have been. Unfortunately, most anime that give that experience all follow the same theme, an concept. After so many times, it becomes bland. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed them, but they didn’t stand out enough to grab my attention to make the list. 3 anime come to mind, Ookami Shoujo, Kaichou wa Maid-sama, and Special A. As much as I love the dashing prince, who have the entire student body fawn over them, while at the same time having the heroine who doesn’t necessarily want him, end up with him. Not to mention the heroines all look, and act alike. So I created a list of 12 total anime. 6 stand alone shows, and 6 stand alone movies. These unique finds will be worth every second watched.
