Top 10 Waifu of 2018

With the Winter season currently giving us a lot of beautiful girls to love, it would be easy to forget about those that marveled us last year. However, now it's the perfect time for us to remember them, giving you a chance to look back and worship the top 10 waifu of 2018. Lovely faces, gorgeous bodies, and the perfect personalities to match them! Be careful though, there's a chance that you're left wanting more and more from them, practically forced to rewatch the series these ladies appear in. Feast your eyes, take care of your kokoro, and don't forget to breathe!

10. Koharu Hidaka from High Score Girl

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: July 2018 - September 2018

High Score Girl is an anime about a boy and a girl falling in love with each other, while also constantly clashing to see who's the best video game player. At first, our main character Haruo faces the untalkative ojou-sama Akira Oono, but it's not until he meets Koharu Hidaka that we find a deserving suitor for him. While Akira is the perfect girl that every other boy likes, Koharu is exactly the opposite, and one can't resist that girl-next-door vibe.

Koharu openly demonstrates her feelings and even grow a love for video games thanks to Haruo, though video games are not exactly new to her. Sure, he definitely is kind of dumb and innocent when it comes to love, but bear in mind we as viewers have a lot more information than Haruo. For any of us gamers, a girl like Koharu would feel as a dream come true, right? Too bad our boy Haruo is too concentrated on defeating Akira to notice her!

9. Chisa Kotegawa from Grand Blue

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: July 2018 - September 2018

Koharu is too young for you? Then let us introduce you to Chisa, a 20-years-old redhead that will drive you insane. While Chisa indeed has a beautiful body, she also has the brains since she studies mechanical engineering, spending her free time diving or trying other sports. In Iori's perspective, Chisa appears like a tsundere girl with an aversion for drinking and boys trying to hit on her, but we all know she's probably the most sensible and sane person in the Peek-a-Boo club.

Still, we would be fooling ourselves if we don't assume the actual reason behind our love for Chii-chan, and that has to be her amazing body. Though her breasts are not the biggest when compared to the other girls on Grand Blue, Chise's oppai will undoubtedly take your breath away, even if her fine butt is what Iori loves the most. How could you not like a girl like her?!

8. Anzu from Hinamatsuri

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: April 2018 - June 2018

If you enjoy bad girls, then Anzu from Hinamatsuri could be the one! She's not actually a regular human but an esper, boasting incredible telekinetic powers. At first, Anzu was introduced as some kind of antagonist with the sole purpose of defeating Hina, but after losing to her, Anzu starts acting like every other girl who enjoys spending time with her friends, Hina included.

Her bratty attitude only lasts a couple episodes, however, and as soon as she understands some basic rules about life, Anzu easily becomes the best character on the show. It's not about being sexy or seductive; she wins your heart by being the purest yet interesting soul, with a smile that you unquestionably wish to protect. We love this homeless girl! And we bet a lot of you love her too!

7. Red Saber from Fate/Extra: Last Encore

  • Episodes: 10
  • Air Date: January 2018 - April 2018

Speaking of baddies who may or may not kill you on sight, we can't ignore Saber, one of the popular servants in the Fate universe. However, this is not a representation of Arturia Pendragon (King Arthur) but Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, better known as Nero, one of the most famous Roman Emperors. Deadly with her flame sword but too captivating to ignore her, Saber is the servant of Fate/Extra: Last Encore's protagonist, Hakuno Kishinami.

If you're one of those in love with the sweet Saber from previous stories, then please take your time to discover Red Saber, a lovable spirit on the inside but an arrogant, misunderstood girl on the outside. Red Saber is so proud of herself that everything she does must be perfect, and lucky for us her face and body are perfect indeed! Still, we know that beauty may have an expiration date, but we'd love to hear her shouting "umu!" until the last of our days.

6. Takagi-san from Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: January 2018 - March 2018

It's perfectly fine to have a waifu just because she's hot as hell, but we know some people fell in love with anime girls solely because of their personality and feelings. One strong case is Takagi-san, a school girl who does nothing lewd to call your attention but still makes you dream about a happily ever after.

Takagi is a master teaser, always on the look for new ways to fool with you, and let us say her sweet voice, calm attitude, innocent look, enviable wits, and the most sweetly cruel intentions certainly do the trick. Maybe Nishikata's first reaction is not the best, but Takagi's flirting style is one that while unbearable at times, will definitely drive you crazy in a good way. We all have been there and done that as school kids, so there's a chance our love for Takagi has something to do with nostalgia too!

5. Yuzu Aihara from Citrus

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: January 2018 - March 2018

Yuzu Aihara was a gorgeous gyaru with a strong fashion sense and a bold personality, doing everything she could to stand out from the crowd and conquer as many boys as possible. However, when her mother married for the second time, Yuzu moved to a new city and started attending a new school, so her life changed drastically. While she considered herself straight, it wasn't until meeting the school council president that she felt attracted by another girl, though things wouldn't be as easy as she expected.

For starters, Yuzu worries a lot about her physical appearance, so seeing her with pretty clothes and makeup is a plus. But her natural beauty is something we can't ignore either! Regarding her personality, Yuzu may act like a total bimbo at first, but she matures slowly until she becomes a respectable young lady. If you like girl-on-girl action then fantasizing about Yuzu and her step-sister Mei is truly unavoidable, and something to keep you motivated!

4. Rikka Takarada from SSSS.Gridman

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: October 2018 - December 2018

Why do boys and girls alike love Rikka Takarada? Well, we wouldn't be wrong if we said it's because of her cute and mature personality, but even though SSSS.Gridman is not an anime focused on ecchi stuff, we all love Rikka's looks. In fact, what stands out the most in her design is a particular part of her body, that curiously enough is not her face, chest or butt.

With such almost invisible shorts, Rikka's legs are the sexiest thing in the anime world. Considering how anime tends to give us real skinny girls, her thick thighs are something to cherish. Sure, this is an anime about fighting kaiju, but even the main antagonist can transform into a sexy girl! Good luck there's also an episode with enough swimsuit scenes to satisfy our... curiosity. Sorry Yuta, but if we were to lose our memories, we would absolutely remember Rikka no matter what!

3. Violet Evergarden from Violet Evergarden

  • Episodes: 13
  • Air Date: January 2018 - April 2018

Violet Evergarden, the anime, is one of those shows created mainly to please the eyes. Violet Evergarden, the titular character, definitely meets that requirement. The story certainly may feel dull for some people, but you can't say this gold-haired angel with porcelain skin doesn't have what it takes to become a top waifu in all its right.

At first, she's like any other boring, generic robot-girls that also happens to be extremely beautiful on the outside. However, when human interaction does its magic, she becomes a far more interesting Auto Memories Doll, even capable of understanding and demonstrating emotions. Being out of touch with human feelings, most of Violet's interactions are awkwardly cute, and there's no doubt that it earns her many extra points. Are you in for a waifu who will put you to the test?

2. Zero Two from Darling in the FranXX

  • Episodes: 24
  • Air Date: January 2018 - July 2018

If you're OK with robot-girls, then there's no chance you could say no to a half-alien girl, right? Weird as she is, Zero Two is the heroine of Darling in the FranXX, a highly skilled mecha pilot with a reputation for disregarding her partners' lives. You see, she had a rough childhood and was bullied for her looks, and so Zero Two isolated herself so as not to suffer, which resulted in her strange and rather harsh way of dealing with humans.

The way a FRANXX is piloted is very sexual per se, and if we add that Zero Two doesn't have any kind of qualms when it comes to showing skin or flirting with her darling, then you'll understand why this girl is a ticking time bomb. However, when her human side comes to light, Zero Two definitely shines. She's sexy, she's cute, and remember she could also save you from invader aliens!

1. Mai Sakurajima from Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai

  • Episodes: 12
  • Air Date: October 2018 - December 2018

As it always happens when dealing with annual rankings, it's very easy to be seduced by those series and characters of the Fall season, that stays the closest in our memory. However, that's not the case for Mai Sakurajima, who has meritoriously earned the position as the best waifu of 2018. A notable model and actor, Mai was once extremely popular in Japan, but suddenly everyone began to forget about her until she literally became invisible to them.

In an attempt to confirm that nobody really could see her, Mai attended the library in a sexy bunny suit, but little did she know that there was actually a guy that could indeed see her. To be honest with you, there aren't many reasons why this anime has a Bunny Girl reference in the title, but that scene was enough to show us how incredibly sexy Mai is. Fanservice for the win!

Mai's love story with Sakuta makes us dream about being in his place at least for a day, enjoying cuddles and tantrums alike only to spend some time with her. If you don't mind dealing with the Puberty Syndrome and some personal drama, her inner and outer beauty will definitely feel like a blessing. Best girl of the season and best girl of the year, Mai Sakurajima is by far the waifu every otaku wants by their side.

Final Thoughts

So there they are, the 10 girls we loved the most in 2018 and the ones that will always have a place in our hearts. The good news is that some of these anime have already confirmed a sequel season or movie! And like we always say, 10 is never enough when it comes to anime series or characters that we like... especially if dealing with waifu material!

Before closing this article, allow us to remember other girls that didn't make the cut, like Saki Nikaido from Zombieland Saga, the Red Blood Cell from Hataraku Saibou, or Silence Suzuka from Uma Musume: Pretty Derby. Are we forgetting your beloved waifu from last year? Let us know in the comments!

Hey! I'm Rod, and when I'm not watching anime or playing video games I'm probably writing about them, but I'm also a graphic and web designer, and I even published a comic book and worked like 4 years for a well-known MMORPG. Curiously, my favorite series are quite different from each other, so I'm still trying to understand what I really like in an anime...
