The seasonal tradition of counting down the best waifu’s of the season continues! In previous seasons I’ve struggled to narrow down the sheer wealth of waifus down to just 10 but there was something ~lacking~ about this season that meant I had no problem finding 10 girls for the list. Somewhat a mixed blessing as it made for a rather straightforward decision process! Here we go counting down the 10 Best Waifu’s of Spring 2019 Anime!
Akane Ukita from ‘Cinderella Nine’
Interminably shy, insecure but still high-spirited nonetheless. Aside from being physically cute (where can I get a hoodie with cat ears?!) watching her slow but steady rise from inexperienced at baseball to… adequate(?) is a level of adorable-ness all of its own!
Mio Shimazu from ‘YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World’
Sometimes a waifu is more than just looks, you know? Okay, I don’t know what I’m talking about either but as far as ‘YU-NO’ goes there’s no shortage of attractive girls (and women) but for some reason I found myself drawn to substitute teacher Mio above all others and I’m not even sure why.
Tohru Honda from ‘Fruits Basket (2019)’
Speaking of “wholesome and kind-hearted”, few girls in anime embody everything that’s wonderful about the fairer sex than Tohru Honda. And while I still have issues with the show itself, its hard to fault this ‘Fruit Baskets’ protagonists embodiment of love and light.
Ao Horie from ‘Ao-chan Can’t Study!’
She’s a complex girl who’s forever battling her own disgust for her fathers’ career (he’s an erotic novelist) while trying to reconcile her own burgeoning feelings of lust for the hot boy at school who is endlessly (but insufficiently) perusing her. Basically she’s DTF but too proud to admit it, and that makes her endlessly adorable. Also she’s got an amazing body and beautiful eyes.
Bellnoa from ‘AMAZING STRANGER’
I wouldn’t mind “toying” with all the 1/6 scale girls in this show but for me it’s the fantasy-series derived tsundere Bellnoa who captures my attention. She’s stoic and proper, but cute and cheeky when she needs to be.
Hikari Hazakura from ‘Why the Hell are You Here, Teacher!?’
Before she’d even spoken a word–just seeing her in the OP–I knew Hikari would be my best girl (woman?) from ‘Why the Hell are You Here, Teacher!?’, she’s tanned, she’s genki… yep that’s pretty much my checklist checked off for the perfect anime girl. Also, ~nice oppai~!
Nako Sunao from ‘Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu’
As a character, none are better in ‘Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu’ than the title character of Bocchi herself. But when it comes to the serious business of picking a waifu its her first (and best?) friend Nako who wins my heart. She’s a misunderstood “tough-girl” with a heart of gold and a wry sense of humour–what’s not to love?!
Senko from ‘The Helpful Fox Senko-san’
The thing about Senko-san is she’s #theperfectwoman by design, which kind of feels like cheating. I mean Senko herself literally describes herself as the protagonists “wife” and “mother”–which aside from the obvious awkward Oedipus connotations–is basically what every man (apparently) looks for in a partner. Oh and she’s an 800 year-old loli fox girl, so you double perfect.
Sicily von Claude from ‘Wise Man’s Grandchild’
The comparisons to Aqua from ‘Konosuba’ are inevitable but they should stop at the superficial because Sicily is a wholesome, pure princess without compare. She’s kindness and joy and sincerity and beauty in a single well endowed package! And if that’s not the makings o f a top tier waifu then I don’t know what is!
All the top waifu’s from ‘Isekai Quartet’
So ‘Iskeai Quartet’ brings together 4 separate anime series’ each with at least a couple (if not a lot) of cute girls and smushes them together for comedic shenanigans. And likewise amongst the “smush” is a whole lot of top tier waifus sharing screen time together! Rem from ‘Re:Zero’, Shalltear from ‘Overlord’ and Darkness and Aqua from ‘Konosuba’, All worthy of a spot, but let’s face it, this is a short-form comedy spin-off so we’ll save individual mentions for their inevitable sequel seasons!
Takemoto Uruka from ‘We Never Learn!’
Y’all know how I like those tanned, genki girls right? I’ve made no secret of the fact that those two factors add up to winning best girl potential. So let me not undersell the fact that Takemoto from ‘We Never Learn!’ is potentially the pinnacle of tanned, genki girls. She exists within the framework of her tropes but showcases such nuanced characterisation and growth throughout the show that she’s without compare. Also, those tanlines… I’m gonna need a minute to recuperate.
And that’s this seasons’ list! I’d love to know which waifu’s made your favourite list this time so let me know in the comments below and thanks for reading!
