Generally, most anime fans can tell you who their favorite anime girls are without batting an eyelash. We, as anime viewers, have our favorite waifu and by the end of each season, a new girl is added to that list. Unfortunately, we here at Honey’s Anime can tell you now that even the best otaku out there can occasionally miss a great waifu and/or forget about her completely. Don’t worry though, we have compiled a short list of five waifu in anime that often get overlooked or are completely forgotten and that should be a sin. Get ready folks! You’re about to embark on a list of waifu who need your attention and are just waiting for your love!
5. Akane Hiyama from Renai Boukun (Love Tyrant)
Yandere in the anime world are easily noticed a majority of the time—due to their extreme showings of love—but that doesn’t mean they all get the same amount of love. One yandere we absolutely love—despite how psychotic she can be—is Akane Hiyama from the odd romance/comedy Renai Boukun. At first glance, Akane can almost seem too normal and her fellow classmates would wholeheartedly agree with this description. Renai Boukun fans know better though and quickly discover a loving side of Akane that goes well beyond normal. However, despite this yandere mode Akane has, we have nothing but a burning love for her that could match her outlook on love…okay maybe not in hindsight.
4. Shizuku Mizutani from Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (My Little Monster)
When it comes to stoic female protagonists who find themselves behind their studies more than being outwardly loving/caring it can be hard to find the waifu burning from within. A prime example of what we mean lies in Shizuku Mizutani. Hailing from the anime Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, Shizuku seems almost bland in comparison to most famous waifu out there. Thankfully, we here at Honey’s Anime can see beyond her “Plain Jane” looks and see a waifu who is both smart and quite earnest. Maybe Shizuku isn’t Waifu of the Year material but if you want a girl who is considerate and intelligent willing to put up with a lot—and we mean a lot—then you’re definitely going to need Shizuku in your life!
3. Mina Ashido from Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia)
Fans of Boku no Hero Academia can quickly point out their favorite lovely heroines out of the mass amount of characters the series provides but one name is quite often overlooked. Mina Ashido—the pink-haired alien-like hero in training—is a waifu that is typically missing from most anime viewers’ lists! Despite her oddness, Mina is full of energy, joy, and charisma that make us burn with anger when she is seemingly passed over in most waifu wars. Mina needs some attention, readers out there, and hopefully you can give her some attention now that you realized the folly of your ways. Just be wary of her acid attacks if she gets mad…
2. Rio Futaba from Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai (Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai)
The supernatural romance series Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai has produced a few waifu such as the main girl—Mai Sakurajima—but one leading lady gets very little love from the anime community. Rio Futaba is another stoic but intelligent leading girl but there’s a lot more to unravel behind this science-driven beauty. Deep inside of her heart, Futaba yearns for admiration and wishes to be noticed for more than what her outward appearance shows. As Bunny Girl Senpai continues, we learn more about Futaba and see not only a truly gorgeous girl—this is why you don’t judge a book by its cover, readers—but one who should be in the top ten best waifu lists around the world!
1. Ako Tamaki from Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta? (And you thought there is never a girl online?)
Gamers tend to forget gaming isn’t a male-focused hobby like the days of old. Now, many gamers are beautiful ladies who can kick your butt better than a male can in almost any video game! Ako Tamaki from Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta might be a casual gamer, but she’s the gamer waifu you want in your life. Not only does Ako look incredibly hot—we can always appreciate a girl with large oppai—but she’s the clingy girl you need in life to remind you how much you’re loved and desired! Ako might need some help surviving in a dungeon but if we knew a girl like her, we’d be her knight anytime she needed us!
