Now that you know my husband choices, let’s look at the wives. I’ll start with a retrospective…
Michiru Kaioh (Sailor Neptune)
Yay! Sailor scouts! 😀 Sailor Moon was a big part of my childhood and one of the few anime that I watched regularly at that time. My taste changed somewhat overtime. Then, I liked Sailor Mars the most – I guess I was into brunettes with long hair 😛 Now I prefer Neptune and Mercury.
Michiru is intelligent, graceful, plays a violin, paints, and swims. As Usagi mentioned, she is an ideal example of a princess 🙂
Now, inclusion of this character in the list is controversial because if we take all the circumstances of her world, then her “cousin” would not like it at all and Michiru herself would never marry a man. Thus, even though it would be impossible, I included her to show what character I like. It is quite sad actually because in RL several girls I really liked at different periods in my life turned out to be lesbians… It’s ok though, we remain good friends to this day.
Ami Mizuno (Sailor Mercury)
Ami is a very intelligent and kind person who studies to become a doctor 🙂 She also shares my love for cats 🙂
Belldandy (Ah My Goddess)
Belldandy is a very nice person, but I have some reservations about this choice because she is too submissive and does too much to please Keichi. However, Kikuko Inoue can melt anyone with her amazing voice 🙂
Nakiami (Xam’d Lost Memories)
Nakiami had a traumatic past, but she is very resilient, altruistic, and one of the few people who truly understand the sanctity of all life. Moreover, she is an excellent psychotherapist.
Erin (Kemono no Souja Erin)
Erin is almost perfect! 🙂 She is always trying to help others and cares about the animals, and has a natural infinite curiosity, optimism, and determination. She is also a very brave person, as we’ve seen in episode seven among many other instances.
Nausicaa (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind)
Miyazaki’s film’s often feature great female characters – Nausicaa is one of the best 🙂
“She is not a protagonist who defeats an opponent, but a protagonist who understands, or accepts.” Miyazaki
Nausicaa is a curious scientist and a skilled warrior princess, but she strives for peace and makes the ultimate sacrifice for the cause.
This is one of the best soundtracks of all time 🙂
What anime character(s) would you take as a wife?
Check out what characters others selected. I especially encourage you to read Animekritik’s post – he even arranged everyone in Tale of Genji style
