Favorite Female Anime Character Ever
Tomoko Kuroki and Olivier Mira Armstrong
Two very different styles of female protagonists. They are my two favorite, but also for different reasons.
Tomoko is the perfect definition of the socially awkward outsider looking in. She is someone who halfheartedly tries thing to boost her social status to only have them fail miserably. She’s negative, anxiety-ridden, envious, perverse, and awkward. She is what a lot of us experienced in our teen years, exaggerated sure, but honest. As an adult I can laugh at her exploits. My teenage son ,however, has a harder time not cringing unbearably.
And she has one of my favorite quotes of all time.
On the other side of the spectrum:
Olivier Mira Armstrong
The commander of the North, Fort Briggs in FMA Brotherhood, is perhaps one of the baddest-ass female characters in anime.
A tough, uncompromising, fierce commander, that demands (and gets) absolute loyalty from her troops. She will put herself on the line to defend her troops, her duty , and what she knows to be right. She will not only command, but fight along side.
So there you have it.
I couldn’t pick just one.
Two very different female characters. One representing all those human insecurities and failing for all to see. The other, a portrait of extreme strength, will, and leadership. Each an end of the spectrum portrayed really well.
Until next time: Happy viewing!
