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.
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.
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.
2018 was a great year for anime Release, not one of my favorite years, but it was definitely a year with a memorable amount of debuts. From Winter Seasons to Fall Seasons, we had our share of the bads, an the goods. After compelling a list of 50 anime, I managed to break down a recommendation list of 33 anime I highly want to recommend. From all types of genre’s, let’s recap what 2018 brought us in terms of anime. Side Note: I’m leaving mainstreams like Boruto, DBZ Super, Etc. And anything from Fall 2017 out of the list. Which knocks out quite a few the collection, but I want to keep it strictly started on the Winter Season 2018.
One of the best remakes I had the pleasure to complete. This horror survivor game features Lean, and Claire, who have to escape Raccoon City whose been transformed into Zombies. From exploration, puzzles, and combat, with the main difference being the branching paths with unique storylines.
I highly recommend this game if your a fan of hack and slash games. You follow Dante, Nero, an a new hero name V. The plot follows 5 years after DMC 4, as they attempt to stop the demon Urizen. Nero follows Dante foot steps, an set up his own demon hunting agency. Also encounter my favorite character Vergil, who was revived. The story includes an intense lore story.
The same people who produced Kanon, Air, and Clannad also produce Angel Beats! Following the afterlife of Otonashi, a boy who lost his memories after dying. A bunch of high schoolers stuck in limbo. Yuri Nakamura, created a group to fight against God. Just like the predecessors the story becomes a tearjerker. The story becomes extremely emotional, all the way up until the end.
I for one, enjoy a good laugh after seeing a new episode that breaks my heart, cough, cough “Dororo” it gets me everytime. In that aspect Parodies truly shine like no other when it comes to comedic relief. Mainly because Parody genres tend to focus on the joke itself, rathee than any real plot. The goal of a Parody is to make the viewers laugh as much as possible. Sometimes they add goals or agendas, but like a Slice of Life genre, it’s going nowhere. I received several inboxes via Facebook, to do a top 10 Parody post. I tend to stick to 5 or 7 when it comes to recommendations, because I always feel like I’m rambling, an the longer it is, the less detailed it is. Nevertheless, I received this request twice, so here’s 10 of my top parody animes.
