[Thirsty Thursday] Top 10 Bakunyu Characters in Anime

Well here we are, surely you had to know that this was coming; a list full of some of the biggest breasts in anime. While we know that’s only going to appeal to some people, we thought it needed to be covered one way or another.

Now some people may ask, “What is bakunyu?” Well, fortunately we have you covered with a splendid article defining that for you towards the end of this article. Long story short, it essentially means breasts that are abnormally large and are seemingly ready to burst out of the seams. These breasts are often larger than an average person’s head.

Now that we have your interest, it’s time for us to deliver a colossal countdown featuring some of the most alluring, bodacious and seductive oppai around.

10. Meiko Shiraki from Prison School

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Jul. 2015 – Sep. 2015

A group of delinquents by the name of Kiyoshi, Gakuto, Shingo, Andre, and Jo are the only five male students that got accepted into Hachimitsu Private Academy. With a ratio of two hundred girls to one boy, life quickly turns out to be more than they bargained for. Their life changed forever on one fateful night when they were caught peeping into the girls bath. Things drastically took a turn for the worse and these boys were thrown into a prison school and sentenced there for a month as punishment. Their imprisonment and struggle with the Student Council puts this perverted alliance to ultimate test.

Many ‘well-equipped’ females in anime come to mind, but we’re going to start with an iconic set from Meiko Shiraki of Prison School fame. Meiko is often seen wearing a short mini skirt, knee-length boots and an open collar that exposes a great deal of braless cleavage. That’s one of the most stimulating features of Meiko, is that it looks like her bakunyu could burst out at any moment. How they don’t pop out is anyone’s guess. With her sadistic personality we wouldn’t put it past her to suffocate someone with her explosive rack. Heck, maybe that’s not such a bad way to go after all.


9. Akeno Himejima from High School DxD

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Jan. 2012 – Mar. 2012

The perverted Issei Hyoudou unexpectedly finds himself on a date with another girl. Just when everything seems to be going great, the girl reveals herself to be a fallen angel. She brutally murders Issei, and with that his potential dreams of having a harem one day…. or so he thought. A sultry top-class devil by the name of Rias Gremory revives Issei and allows him to become her servant. He joins the Occult Research Club and is introduced to many new females. It’s then he realizes his chances of being a harem king are not too farfetched.

Can you imagine that the tantalizing Akeno Himejima has the second smallest bust on this list? It’s in fact true, but we created this list with Akeno in mind. She commands attention by teasing Issei in more ways than one. Her bodacious breasts factor in on that. This seductive enchantress is able to make Issei’s blood boil and a lot of it has to do with the skimpy attire that she wears throughout the show. Whether she is in a tiny bikini or darn-near busting out of a questionable white robe, it’s hard to take your eyes off of her.


8. Aki Nijou from Maken-Ki!

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Oct. 2011 – Dec. 2011

Maken-Ki! is about a typical perverted teenage boy named Takeru Ohyama, who lucked out in finding a new school. Not only does it not require an entrance exam but it recently turned co-ed. While being surrounded by loads of cute girls, he stumbles upon a discovery that will surely change his life. His fellow students all wield a special item called a “Maken” that they use in magical duels. Takeru now has to possess the power of a Maken, while also fitting in amongst the crowd.

With our next anime, you would be hard-pressed to find many females that aren’t well-endowed. Ultimately, we settled on the very mature Aki Nijou. She comes busting out on our screens with her tremendous 103cm k cup bust. She acts as a school nurse (a theme you will notice throughout this list) and rightfully attracts much attention from the males at her school. Her typical attire consists of a white lab coat that she keeps open, revealing a pink strapless top that further accentuates her bosoms.


7. Centorea Shianus from Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls (Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Jul. 2015 – Sep. 2015

In an alternate reality, Japan becomes the first country to promote and integrate non-human species into society. Thanks to a lapse in judgment, Agent Smith leaves a lamia named Miia at Kimihito’s house and he becomes her caretaker. Attraction quickly builds between the two and it leaves them with a dilemma. Thanks to the Interspecies Exchange Act, it’s forbidden to have sexual interactions with each other. As it turns out, Miia isn’t the only one that Kimihito accepts into his house, and before long he has a house full of different species that are determined to win his affection.

How could we do a list about bakunyu without talking about everybody’s favorite busty monster girls?! For this list we’re going to go with the gifted Centorea Shianus. This possessive centaur made her debut in episode two of the series, by literally running down Kimihito. From then on, Centorea’s ample melons became home to Kimihito’s face and hands. He, for obvious reasons, couldn’t get enough of them. Let’s be real, how often do you forget that she’s a centaur? If you answered with “occasionally”, then you’re not alone. That speaks volumes.


6. Yurishia Farandole from Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia (Masou Gakuen HxH)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Jul. 2016 – Sep. 2016

Masou Gakuen HxH is about a teenaged boy named Kizuna who receives word from his sister Reiri, that his help is needed in aiding the defense core at Ataraxia. Reiri wants Kizuna to join up with the ace team known as Amaterasu. The most prominent issues the Amaterasu pilots are dealing with, is the high magical power consumption and slow recovery rate. Reiri figures that Kizuna’s Eros gear will potentially be instrumental at resolving that problem with the current Heart Hybrid Gear pilots of Ataraxia. Regardless, they have another major concern; the impending doom that the invading enemy forces from another world look to deliver.

Yurishia sports a 105 cm bust that utterly stands out amongst the sea of buxom ladies in the show. Needless to say, this blonde bombshell is well-equipped. This anime takes the bakunyu to the next level. It famously goes beyond just eye candy and works those dirty pillows to further enhance the story. There’s one scene in particular, involving herself, Scarlett and Kizuna that brings some heated skin-on-skin action. Scarlett and Kizuna both receive a face full of Yurishia’s funbags. It’s fair to say that this anime might be the best at exposing the bakunyu, and Yurishia is at the forefront.


5. Shizuka Marikawa from Highschool of the Dead

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Jul. 2010 – Sep. 2010

Suddenly, Japan was thrown into utter chaos after the dead began to rise. Little by little Japan became the breeding ground for the walking dead. A high school student, Takashi Kimuro has experienced the living dead’s debilitating nature. He even had to involuntarily kill his best friend after he got bitten. Takashi vowed he wouldn’t let that happen to his friend, Rei. The two narrowly escaped their school with their lives. Together they set out on a journey inside a fallen society to find their family and friends and hope to uncover what caused the devastating pandemic.

When creating this list, Shizuka Marikawa was one of the first characters we thought about. Her outrageous proportions that were often utilized for comedic purposes never dissipated from our minds. This buxom school nurse was sure to grab the attention of everybody around her. It was hard to ignore her mammoth assets, as Rei demonstrated while bathing together. We could only imagine how her back felt supporting that 108 cm j cup bust she possessed. To this day, we’re still having flashbacks of that scene in episode six where she came onto Takashi with that drooping towel that could barely contain her oppai.


4. Mirei Shikishima from Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Oct. 2015 – Dec. 2015

Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid is a flashy ecchi anime about a naïve 16-year-old girl named Mamori Tokonome, who is kidnapped during gym class and finds herself stranded on a foreign island of Mermaid. Fortunately for Mamori she’s not alone on the island as an enigmatic blonde-haired female brings out Mamori’s Exter transformation abilities from a passionate kiss. With the power of arousal on their side they look to thwart any potential threat that may rear its ugly head. The powerful duo hopes that their intimate embrace will be enough to survive on the scandalous island of Mermaid.

Just like the last three selections, we are graced with yet another exaggerated breasted blonde female. Mirei is an energetic and much tanned individual, who most certainly fits the description of a bakunyu character. Mirei is rocking a 111 cm h cup bust, with her oppai weighing in at approximately 3 kg. That just screams back problems! Thank goodness for Mirei that she’s only a fictional character. Mirei is typically dressed in a school uniform and has her jacket unbuttoned with her blouse barely containing her ample assets. The intimacy shown between Mamori and Mirei highlights Mirei and her explosive features delightfully.


3. Cattleya from Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin (Queen's Blade: Rurou no Senshi)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Apr. 2009 – Jun. 2009

Every few years a new queen is chosen to lead the land. The selection is not done in a traditional sense. The queen is decided solely by a tournament that pits together some of the most formidable opponents in the land. Every challenger is tasked with something they need to overcome in order to obtain that reward. One young warrior is determined as ever to rectify her mistakes. She will not let defeat bring her down, so she sets out on an adventure to prove to everyone that she is a capable warrior.

Drooping our way down the list we come across Cattleya, a gifted weapon merchant who has some massive mammaries. How massive you ask, well it’s said that her bust astonishingly reaches 120 cm. Despite being in an anime like Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin, that’s overflowing with well-endowed females, Cattleya happens to stand out in the oppai-centric world. Cattleya is a mature looking woman who’s most notably seen wearing a purple apron-like dress. Kudos to the tailor who made that dress, it somehow managed to contain that colossal bust.


2. Ayana Hizuki from Kagaku na Yatsura

  • Episodes: 1
  • Air Date: Feb. 2013

Haruki Komaba is not living what you would call an ordinary high school life. It’s true he needs to select a high school club to join, but his decision will come at a price. He has two choices and no matter how he decides it, it’s going to hurt one of his friends. There’s a female cyborg named Airi Kuze and a part-canine female named Ayana Hizuki who wants him in their field of science. Haruki now finds himself locked in the middle of a savage battle for his club membership and affection.

Lactation comes to mind when describing Kagaku na Yatsura. This is one of the better examples of bakunyu. Ayana Hizuki and her sister Touko certainly carry a lot of “milk.” Heck, Ayana has a whopping 123 cm bust! Let that sink in for a moment. This anime walks the finest of lines between an ecchi and a hentai. Evidence of that is when the perverted school nurse, Touko takes advantage of situations using her own brand of drugs “Submitacil”or inducing breast sensitivity to further stimulate the characters. In turn, these girls will need to be “milked dry” in order for the drugs to wear off.


1. Chifusa Manyuu from Manyuu Hikenchou

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: Jul. 2011 – Sep. 2011

During the Edo period of Japan, wealth, fame and influence was determined by the size of your bust. The larger the bust, the more accolades you would receive. There’s a warrior clan that had a peculiar magical skill. The Manyuu clan as they were known had such a lethal ability that one sword strike could shrink the size of a woman’s breast. Chifusa, a disgruntled member of the clan was disgusted by this breast obsessed society and decided to steal the sacred scroll and abandon her clan. Her fellow warrior Kaede is sympathetic to her cause and together they seek to bring equality to the land.

Bouncing in at our number one spot is Chifusa Manyuu. While she may not have the explosive boobs as some of our previous selections, she makes up for it with her ability to have varying sized breasts. That’s right, the breasts that developed for her were indeed large, but what makes Chifusa a perfect candidate for a bakunyu character is that she is capable of using the “Breast Flow” technique, which manipulates breast sizes. Therefore, there’s really no limit for Chifusa. So given that, we feel this is the perfect pick for our number one spot.


Final Thoughts

Overstimulated? We thought so! It’s now’s your chance to cool off, as we’ve come to the conclusion of our list. It really comes as no surprise that all of these anime are from the ecchi genre. I mean, why have characters with such large racks if you’re not going to take advantage of it, right?

This list is a wonderful example of the phrase, “The bigger the better.” Did this list ‘measure up’ to your liking? Do you have a favorite pair of bakunyu characters? If there was any that we left out, please share them with us in the comments section below.
