Top Bishoujos Of All Time (2006-2015)
June 26, 2016
Surprise! Bet you didn’t think that there would a top bishoujo list in the middle of the year! It wouldn’t have been if not for this ‘special edition’. After celebrating 10 years of top bishoujos from my anime adventures half a year ago, I decided to do a ranking list of for the really pretty awesome anime ladies from the past decade. Yes, you read that right. All the while, the top bishoujos of the year have never been ranked and only been listed alphabetically.
Therefore with this special midyear top bishoujo special, I hereby rank the top 50 bishoujos of all time. Well, at least from 2006-2015 period. Time to dig deep into your memories to see if you remember them. The criterion to qualify for this list is that they must have appeared in the final top list of that year. So those who barely missed the cut or were just honourable mentions won’t be eligible. It will be listed in ascending order as well. Enough talking. Let’s get down to the list to see how awesome my tastes in bishoujo is ;p. Oh, how to read: Rank) Name (Anime) (Year). And yes, short commentary included.
50) Saber (Fate/Stay Night) (2007)
Holy smokes! Just when I just mentioned the rules, I already broke it right at the start?! For the clueless, Saber didn’t end up in the final list as my top bishoujo that year and went as far as just an honourable mention. I don’t even know why… I promise, this will be the only entry that broke the rules. It’s not a bad thing, right?
49) Nao Yoshikawa (Good Morning Call) (2007)
Haven’t heard of this unknown OVA? Well yeah. You should go watch it. I’m glad I did. A good bishoujo is one way of remembering an unknown series.
48) Rosette (Chrno Crusade) (2006)
I’m not into nuns with guns but at least she was one of the little motivations to watch the series. Isn’t that the same for most animes I watch?
47) Yuuno Houzuki (Kurenai) (2008)
Don’t let her cute looks fool you. She is a stronger fighter than the main character himself.
46) Lydia Carlton (Hakushaku To Yousei) (2009)
When you are a doctor for fairies, it is only natural that you have to be as beautiful as fairies, right?
45) Tenma Tsukamoto (School Rumble) (2006)
Ah, one of the few early crushes I had… Naïve, childish and gullible but that is what makes her so cute and lovable.
44) Nina Sakura (Ultra Maniac) (2006)
I never did get around to finish watching the series then and now. Even so, I suppose she was cute enough to make me remember her after all these years.
43) Rikantz Seaberry (Kenzen Robo Daimidaler) (2015)
Not many anime characters wear a top hat as their standard outfit. With nice braids and cheerful personality, we’ve got ourselves a winner here.
42) Chika Koizumi (Kyou No Go No Ni) (2006)
No, I’m not a lolicon! At least the original OVA version makes her look much better than the TV version that made her look like a cartoonish kid.
41) April (Coyote Ragtime Show) (2006)
Gothic. Badass. Enough said.
41) Mahiro Mutou (Busou Renkin) (2009)
One of the few plain looking girls on this list. Who says you can’t find beauty in such plainness?
39) Kakei Mihaya AKA Blood Leopard (Accel World) (2013)
MEIDO CHARACTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had she looked cuter, she would have gone up a few places.
38) Motoka Nogisaka (Yosuga No Sora) (2011)
MAID CHARACTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER PART 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Same reason too, had she been cuter, she might jumped a few more spots.
37) Chelsea Arcot (Shukufuku No Campanella) (2011)
You tend to get lost with your lousy sense of direction. So I tend to get lost in your beauty for the same cheesy reason.
36) Hime (Kaibutsu Oujo) (2007)
The (future) queen of all monsters. Can I be your slave?
35) Kouko Kaga (Golden Time) (2014)
Smart. Stylish. Obsessive. Oh well, 2 out of 3 isn’t bad.
34) Tsukino Azusagawa (Yakitate! Japan) (2007)
Who wouldn’t like a girl who is kind hearted and forgiving? Sometimes a little naïve but hey, 2 out of 3 isn’t bad, right?
33) Aria Shichijou (Seitokai Yakuindomo) (2011)
It makes me wonder if she was a little more perverted, would she have ranked higher? Or was it her perversion that every guy’s fantasy would love to have as a girlfriend made her this high in the list?
32) Orihime Inoue (Bleach) (2007)
You didn’t think she would end up on this list, did you? Well, if I wanted some boobs and cleavage I would have gone for Rangiku but then again, she never even made the cut.
31) Saki Rukino (Valvrave The Liberator) (2014)
Everybody wanted to see that rape scene Haruto did to her…
30) Sylvia Van Hossen (Princess Lover) (2010)
The only reason why she ended up here is because her uncanny similar looks to Saber. An indication that Saber might have been placed this high had she qualify in the first place.
29) Chihaya Ayase (Chihayafuru) (2013)
It’s like they’re trying to get me interested in playing karuta by putting a pretty face main character. Too bad I’m only interested in her. Not the game. She is also a testament why some pretty people should just stay quiet… And maybe that is why she didn’t get any higher.
28) Chiyo Sakura (Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun) (2015)
I think it has something to do with her polka dot ribbons… Hypnotizing…
27) Tamako Kitashirakawa (Tamako Market) (2013)
There is this strange resemblance from her, like a cross between K-ON!’s Mio and Yui…
26) Mao Mizusawa (Kimikiss Pure Rouge) (2008)
I’ve said it in my blog before and I’ll say it again. It’s her locks, baby! Her locks!
25) Megumi Katou (Saenai Heroine No Sodatekata) (2015)
What did I tell you about beauty in plainness? Megumi proves it by getting this high on the list for that but I guess that is also the reason why she couldn’t go any higher. Stuck at midpoint?
24) Chelsea (Akame Ga Kill) (2015)
NOOO!!! WHY YOU HAVE TO KILL HER OFF AND DECAPITATE HER HEAD????!!!!!!!!!!
23) Krista Lenz (Shingeki No Kyojin) (2014)
Move aside Mikasa. Just because you are a fan favourite doesn’t mean everybody has to like you, you Eren-possessive b*tch! This angel suits me much better!
22) Chiko Shinmoto (Super Seisyun Brothers) (2014)
Can you blame her for being obsessed with handsome guys when I myself am obsessed with pretty bishoujos?
21) Cecilia Alcott (Infinite Stratos) (2011)
I know Cecilia ranks at the bottom in terms of power and file and rank among the other girls in the harem. Don’t worry, you’ll always be tops in the beauty department in my books.
20) Sahoto Ashisu (Mangaka-san To Assistant-san To) (2015)
It takes lots of patience and tolerance if your boss is an author of a perverted manga. How can she stay so pretty amidst all that sexual harassment?
19) Honoka Sakurai (Suzuka) (2008)
Another plain looking girl. But with her long black hair that is worthy of a shampoo commercial, I think that sealed the deal.
18) Chitose Mihara (Kobato) (2010)
Even if you are a minor side extra character appearing limited times in a series, you still beat out looking your best than the rest.
17) Kurumi Isoshima (Mahou Sensou) (2014)
The series sucked. The ending sucked. At least your beauty didn’t. At least it eased the pain of watching through that horrendous dozen episodes and even more horrendous ‘ending’.
16) Takao (D-Frag!) (2014)
Why do I have a feeling that people will get the wrong idea that I chose her because of her boobs? Doesn’t every female character have them? She’s is just extra larger than the average…
15) Megumi Kannazuki (Muteki Kanban Musume) (2006)
They should have made her the star of the series instead of that ramen delivery bully girl.
14) Shirley Fenette (Code Geass) (2011)
The only reason why her character exists is so that she could die and provide a catalyst for our main character to carry on/power up/ turn the tide/move forward the plot. Literally, having a beauty to die for… Oops.
13) Alicia Florence (Aria The Natural/Aria The Origination) (2012)
With a number of blondes already making it on this list, it goes to show to show that blondes aren’t dumb and there just to look good. For Alicia, she is a good reason to dispel all those dumb blonde jokes and stereotype with her elegance, intelligence and independence.
12) Celia Cumani Aintree (Walkure Romanze) (2012)
Are they trying to get me interested in the art of jousting by putting a top head babe here?
11) Haruka Morishima (Amagami SS) (2012)
Best girl of Amagami SS! No question about it! And oh, Haruka girl, when a girl hints she is tired of playing the little sister to the guy she secretly has a crush on for a long time, it DOES NOT MEAN she wants to be the big sister!
10) Asuna Yuuki (Sword Art Online) (2013)
Yay! We have already breached into the top 10! Don’t hold your breath as we start getting closer to the top spot. Oh wait. How did she end up in my top 10? Barely beating out on Haruka on the looks department. Who cares, right? Despite being relegated to a damsel in distress in the latter half of the series, she still kicks ass.
9) Hare Menjou (Guilty Crown) (2012)
She reminds me of Code Geass’ Shirley’s fate. All of it. Only, she is cuter.
8) Hiromi Yuasa (True Tears) (2008)
Looking very much like a typical generic bishoujo girl, right? What’s so bad about that? If they only design female in characters in every other anime in that era this way.
6) Sawa Okita (Tari Tari) (2013)
I think it is the way she ties her hair… Yeah, that…
6) Touko Fukami (Glasslip) (2015)
Another reason why a disappointing series is watchable thanks to a pretty lady…
5) Ume “Kurumi” Kurumizawa (Kimi Ni Todoke) (2010)
Don’t worry, Kurumi. Even if everybody hates you and Kazehaya will never set his eyes on you (he’d rather have a horror movie-like girl than a bisque doll like you), your beauty will never be wasted in my eyes.
4) Mio Akiyama (K-ON!) (2009)
Was supposedly to be my ‘official’ third waifu during the hype and height of the cute moe girls era… But then…
3) Kosaki Onodera (Nisekoi) (2015)
Team Onodera FTW!!! If not for this seemingly ‘late’ entry that stole the bronze spot, a certain bassist would have claimed it… Yeah, literally pip her to this spot.
2) Suign Tou (Rozen Maiden) (Eternal)
Is it without a doubt that the first doll of the Rozen Maiden series still holds a special place in my heart after all these years? She appeared in every top bishoujo so it is only right silver place belongs to her. You should look at the specific blog posts I made a few years ago for her. Though, I might be a little guilty for not doing so in these few years.
1) Mai Tokiha (Mai-HiME) (Eternal)
You should have seen it coming from the start. If you have been following my blog for donkey years, that is. Yes people. Mai is still the queen of my heart. Gold place will always belong to my first ever waifu and perhaps this is partially the reason why I came out with this top 50 blog. Just to brag how beautiful and I love her all these time. I know, I know. I haven’t been putting up dedicated posts to her for the past few years either… Well, you know what they say. It is the thought that counts, right?
That’s it folks. If it was already hard for me to just pick top 10 bishoujos every year, now I know how freaking tough it is to even rank them! Even I had this ‘internal rage’ of why a certain girl ranked higher or lower than the other. I thought of putting them on as equal ranks but if that is the case, there would be too many and it defeats the purpose of this blog post. Congratulations for those making the list and for those who didn’t, don’t despair. It is safe to say that all those top bishoujos who do not make the final top 50 cut are automatically honourable mentions. I’m too lazy to list them down here and if you really want to know who they are, you should go do some retrospect on my past blogs. So it goes to show that perhaps my taste in bishoujo has evolved but nevertheless still remains generally the same. I noticed that most of the recent bishoujos would tend to end up in the higher tier compared to older ones so it could also be because they are in my recent memory. Therefore as of this time and date, the rankings of these beauties are definite. It might change in the future or not but I’m definitely not going to do another major one just to show some shuffling changes. With this party over, I guess now we can move on and look forward to a new group of bishoujos waiting to be named at the year end. Can’t really wait for it. Waku, waku desu! All hail Anime Bishoujos! Long Live Anime Bishoujos!
