Reviews and comments

Yor-san is goofy, but I love how she tries her best as a mother and wife, and how she spends time with her family. (Kichi)

She is the best assassin, but I like that she also has cute aspects. For example, when she is depressed because she is not a good cook. (Umi)

The black color of her hair is also good because it gives both the impression of maturity and the darkness as an assassin. (Miyo)

It’s cute that though she is perfect as an assassin, she is usually poor at cooking and is at the mercy of Anya. It’s also nice that she makes daily efforts to be a good wife and mother even though she is clumsy. (Niachi)

The gap between her calm and polite tone and her extraordinary physical abilities is very attractive. The dynamic battle scenes are also very cool. (Kirico)

No.2 is Nico Robin, a character from “ONE PIECE”.

Her willingness to sacrifice herself for the sake of her friends and the way she revealed her true desire to live, as she says “I want to live” to Luffy for the first time in her life moved a lot of people.

Reviews and comments

Robin is a cool beauty with a great style and long black hair, but I love the gap such as her crumpled face when she cries and the smile that she often shows. (Rōbin)

I admire her because she has an image of an intelligent adult. Her long black hair is also nice. She is truly my ideal woman because she is cool but also has a funny side as well. (Tama)

It’s amazing that she is cool, beautiful, and mysterious, but she can also be passionate about her friends. (Nora)

I love the “Water 7 Arc” where Robin’s past is revealed, which I think is the best part of the anime. She used to call people by their titles, such as captain, but after she is saved by the Straw Hat crew, she starts calling them by their names, and you can see her laughing a lot and deeply trusting her friends, which makes me cry. (Babochan)

She is a character who is cool and beautiful with black hair. She also looks cute, smart, and knowledgeable. She is a very important character in the story, and I like that she is a little sadistic. (nononoririri)

On the other hand, she is willing to work hard to achieve her goals, and such a gap makes her so popular.

Reviews and comments

I find her black hair and neat appearance cool and feminine. She is also shy, which I think is really cute. (Mei)

She is a cool girl. But she is also shy, and the gap between her appearance and her personality is cute. (Neneko)

Mio Akiyama is a very cute girl with long black hair. She is the one who gets nervous when it comes to talking with strangers and gets too shy to stand out from the crowd. But she’s even attractive in that she loves the bass guitar and the band more than anyone else and makes a great effort. (Kaidouma)

I love the fact that she can be reliable when unforeseen circumstances arise although she is usually shy and easily gets lonely, and doesn’t really like horror stories. (Ashura)

She is a cool beauty with long black hair at first glance, but she is also cute when she gets shy. She is a good bass player and singer. Her relationship with her childhood friend Ritsu and their episodes are also good. (Kuronyan)

She became a demon, but her appearance and gestures are very cute. Also, the way she cooperates with Tanjiro and the others to fight against demons although she is also a demon is very impressive.(jijiwakame)

Not only she is cute, she is also strong. It’s breathtaking to see her holding a tube in her mouth. (Hoippun)

Her long black hair is very bewitching and beautiful. I think it is because of her long black hair makes her more distinguishable even though she is just a child. (Koma)

I’m relatable with her at so many points that she only has a few friends and has to carry everything on her own, which makes me want to support her.

Rukia’s dignified behavior, which is probably because of her family background, is attractive. Her mischievous side, such as her love of rabbit goods, is also cute. (Hitode21)

She has a boyish appearance and is usually quite edgy, but I like her childish side, which matches her petite body, and her cute hobbies, such as her love of rabbit goods. (Monopoly)

I chose her because she is so cute that she likes strange things even though she is the one who gave the main character (Ichigo) her power.

I like that she is a multifaceted person who can do both serious and funny stuff. I think there is no such a unique character like her, so she is my favorite. (Fuyu no sanma)

She is a very strong character despite her small and slender appearance, and it is cool that she always trusts the main character Ichigo when she fights. I also like that she has a girlish side, such as her love of cute things. (Chiroru)

I chose Rukia because she is not just a female character who is always protected, but she can fight and gets stronger and stronger as the story goes on. I also like the way she cheers the main character (Ichigo) up. (Kaorin)

Reviews and comments

I chose this work because I like this work. Sawako-chan, with her black straight hair, meets lovely friends and falls in wonderful love. No matter how many times I read it over and over again, my heart skips a beat. (Minonon)

I love that Sawako is beautiful and cute but doesn’t realize her charms and that she is hardworking, kind, and strong at her core. (Tsugumi)

Sawako has straight black hair, which is very classic, but I find it cute when she hides her face with her hair because she was not confident with herself. I become her fan when her life gets more colorful as she struggled with herself and fell in love. (Miyachi)

She is honest and pure, which makes me feel healed, and I want her to be happy because she went through hardships and she deserves it. Those characters who are too nice tend to be shunned in general, but for some reason she makes me want to root for her. (Ōgonki)

I love how she is honest and hard-working in everything she does, and although she is pure and cute, she also has her own thoughts and feelings and a strong core. (Kakitsubata)

Her silky, straight black hair is very impressive and suits her well. I like her gentle and girlish personality. (Kokoro)
