…*sighs* Yes, I’m doing this, okay? And yes, I know I’m coming off as an objective pig here. Don’t worry, I plan to do my favourite animated women based on actual character later, but I DO gotta play to the male demographic here, so what can I do? Not to say that these women aren’t strong characters either, mind you, and most will likely end up on that list too…which will mean it’ll probably be more than 5. But before I get to this, I need to set some ground rules.
- No hentai. So Reika Kitami is unfortunately out.
- No anthropomorphics. Not because I personally have any kind of issue with it, I just don’t want to open the door to THAT little argument that never wants to frigging go away. lol
- Only one entry per franchise. So if I pick someone from say Batman The Animated Series (and I did, lol), I can’t pick anyone else from it.
- This is JUST MY LIST. I am not arguing with anyone else’s, it’s just my list. So don’t freak out if one of yours isn’t on here or if I don’t include any from other well-known lists, AKA Doug Walker’s.
- For anyone who finds this particularly distasteful for any reason, TURN AWAY NOW. This is your only warning.
Anyway, with all that said, let’s go ahead and get the obvious one outta the way…
I’m well aware that getting involved with this woman could be hazardous to my health, but I might just chance it, honestly. Now I should note that I’m referring to the version we saw before the big art change. I never really liked when they changed her skin green. And yeah, I know they did it in the comics, but I really liked how Ivy looked with normal looking skin (no racist jokes, you know what I mean, people).
As anyone who knows me personally can tell you, I have a MASSIVE weakness for women with dark hair. I also find myself hopelessly attracted to strong women. Put them together and you get Sailor Mars. OH MAN, do I love Sailor Mars. Yeah, she was kind of a dick in the early episodes, but to be fair, Serena was kind of a screw up and a ditz, and it must’ve been hard to accept her as a leader, but she eventually did and mellowed out a bit.
Yeah, I know a lot of people prefer Starfire, but I was more a Raven kind of guy. Her sarcasm, her dark nature, and honestly, I found her to be kind of hot too. She also seemed kind of lonely at times, like no one really understood her, which on at least one occasion caused trouble for her. Oh, and I would just like to note that unlike the comics, Raven only turned heel one time in the show, and even then not really.
Beware the coming of the uber boob! XD Seriously, I suspect the real reason Bonds Beyond Time didn’t feature all three casts interacting was because they couldn’t risk putting Akiza and Mai Valentine in the same shot for fear it would cause the big screen to implode. I think probably my favourite episode of the show is when Akiza decides for herself that she wants to be a Turbo Duelist as well and really struggles to make it happen. It took a lot of guts…as well as a skin tight leather riding suit that made her cleavage look ginormous. Y’know, for kids. lol
Like I said, I find myself hopelessly attracted to strong women… … …She’s a cop! And not just a cop in any ol’ city, she’s with the NYPD in a universe filled with all manners of terrifying threats. That requires some serious inner strength to deal with, and we see her get taken to the limits of that inner strength more than once.
So, that’s my list for my favourite animated hotties, but we’re not done yet my friends. Check in next time when I reveal my 10 Favourite Animated Women of All Time! Ja né!
