An elemental workshop.


A magazine released their ranking of the top 10 most popular anime females of May 2012, as per reader votes, and the result is essentially as expected – Saber tops the chart, and Haruhi makes her usual appearance.

Saber is at number one, nothing else worth mentioning there, yet it’s quite a shame to see such a bland and undeveloped character as the heroine of a series equally as uninteresting, Guilty Crown, manage to rank so undeservingly high. Of the three entries which follow, the two light music club members aren’t any surprise, despite not even being of a series ongoing – however the pink haired Macross character is about as worthy of being on this list as is Guilty Crown’s leading female, which equates to not at all.

At number six is InuBoku SS’ elegant young loli of a heroine – a “tsunshun” with infinite amounts of charm and class who truly should have been ranked far higher. Spot number seven is occupied by Ano Natsu’s adorable blue topped moe service provider – and at rank eight is the omnipresent obnoxious girl Haruhi Suzumiya, who one would have thought would have passed through her time of popularity already.

It must be difficult for this magazine to keep using a unique image of Haruhi every week as she’s seemingly in the top 10 all 52 weeks of the year, every year. Then again however, her popularity is one grand enough to ensure she always accounts for perhaps half of the anime related imagery on the internet at any given moment.

In any case, the last two characters aren’t any particularly as extraordinary as a few of the others on the list – yet they’ve somehow managed to rise up to the ranks of nine and ten respectively, so one must at least recognize that. Overall, the top three protected their spots – the rest all managing to rise from whatever dark recess they originate. And thus, here’s looking forward to some Cthulhu Mythos loli domination next month.

    Hmm, I only know three of them. Haruhi, Azusa, and Yui.

      You must not be particularly up to date on the latest ongoing series – I highly recommend you look into a few, namely Fate/Zero and Inu Boku SS from this chart.

    Saber wins . . .what a shock.

  • skylion says:

    I’m familiar with all of them. I’m enamored of Ririyo-sam > Hanna >Azunyan (purr) > Yui. The rest, I can take or leave.

    I’m surprised Inori is ranked so high, the side characters always felt more interesting.

    • Seven says:

      Probably due to female or children votes.

        Well, I agree with the above commenter, Inori is as uninteresting a character as you can get. And I’d bet more on a male fanbase, perhaps due to her looks, since that’s all she has going for her. Though from what I’ve seen, she does have a reasonably sized female fanbase as well…

        Anyway, who cares. All I have to say is: Go Saber! Own them once again!

        P.S.: Irisviel should totally be on that list too.

    I’m surprised that Rei Ayanami and/or Asuka Langley Soryu didn’t appear in this list.
