Happy Friday evening, y’all! I wanted to kick-off my weekend shenanigans on a happy and floofy note, so tonight I wanted to share with you five megane anime ladies who make me swoon and fanhooman with all of my heart. For anyone unfamiliar with the word, “megane” basically refers to people who wear glasses. People who don specs are so sexy to me. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that I’m also a megane. Hmm…food for thought.
In addition to being megane, you will also notice a similar theme of ass-kicking capabilities. Fierce women who can be positively terrifying are also very sexy to me. I mentioned this over on Twitter a couple of weeks ago, but I’m very much like Spike from Cowboy Bebop. “I love the kind of woman who can kick my ass.” My ex-girlfriend is a perfect example of this. She was a gorgeous force to be reckoned with, particularly when she got pissed off. As long as it wasn’t directed at me, I loved every moment of it. I never knew that such a small human being could be so horrifying.
Now that I’m sitting here thinking about it, I think most, if not all, of the ladies I’ve chosen for this post are also small… which is also another trait I have… What a trend! Check ‘em out.
5. Futaba Sakura – Persona 5: The Animation
Futaba is absolutely fucking adorable! When I first encountered her in the game, I couldn’t get over how cute she was. She’s also very socially awkward, has beautifully long hair, and has endured a significant loss that has made her life challenging. When I can empathise with a character on quite the personal level, I feel like it adds an extra layer of connection between us. Plus, her expression when she gets excited about computers and hacking-type things is also very charming.
4. Mey-Rin – Black Butler
Speaking of more adorable people, Mey-Rin is probably the epitome of all bleeding kawaii-ness. Extra things that make her so… extra (I know, excellent word usage today) include her brilliant ability to wield guns, specifically the sniper rifle. I have a love affair with that weapon and also for girls who can use them like nobody’s business. Additionally, I relate to Mey-Rin’s clumsiness (and Sebastian crushing) so much. I mean, I’ve tripped over my own feet five times today as it is. There’s no help for the wicked.
3. Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing – Hellsing
Okay… you want to take a moment and focus on a woman who is the most terrifying force in existence? Look no further than Sir Integra Hellsing. Firstly, she’s got bloody Alucard on a leash. Secondly, her power is in her sensationally intimidating aura, not necessarily in her wealth and familial prestige. Money doesn’t mean shit if you don’t have the attitude and intellective prowess to back it up. Thirdly, have y’all seen her with a gun or sword? Wow. Just mind-blowingly wow. Lastly, when she smokes, my heart starts to race. It’s so sexy. Mm, mm, mm. Also, sexy seems to be most over-used yet appropriately apt word of the day here on BiblioNyan. Woot!
2. Hange Zoe – Attack on Titan
The only reason Hange isn’t in my number one spot is because number one will always be reserved for the very first megane person I had ever fallen so truly, madly, deeply in love with (what’s up cheesy 90s song reference; I’ve been watching a lot of Superwoman vids on YT, can you tell?). What is there to not love about Hange aside from her creepy-cool specs? She is a brilliant scientist who gets lady-boners for experimentation and torture. Her flushed cheeks and mad-scientist grin when she is inflicting pain on others is super-hot. She can kick some serious fucking ass, whether they are corrupt humans or squishy titans. She has the perfect platonic partner in crime: Levi-chan-san. Did I mention that her maniacal persona is super-hot? Just checking.
1. Rosarita Cisneros a.k.a Roberta – Black Lagoon
Oh. My. Gawd. I don’t think there are enough words in any of the five languages that I speak that can properly describe how much I fucking love Roberta a.k.a. The Maid. Her story, for starters, is so good, even though it’s a sorrowful and emotional one. Her sense of loyalty is astounding. The way her long plaits flutter about when she’s in middle of shooting up flesh is rather mmm. She also happens to be the baddest bitch with a gun I have ever seen, second only to Revy… maybe. Roberta, m’dear, you shall be my ultimate megane Queen until the end of days.
Honorary Mention: Grell Sutcliff – Black Butler
Honestly, I couldn’t create this list on not include the non-binary babe, Grell. They are the perfect representation of every single person that gushes and lusts after Mr Sexy Demon Butler Man, Sebastian Michaelis. Not to mention, their flamboyance and sadistic persona also make them a truly fun character and addition to the series. Grell doesn’t simply bring comic relief and empathy to burning loins everywhere, but they also make the series livelier and more engaging as a whole. Plus, they can rock those red megane frames like a Kamisama, ironically.
Now that I’ve written this thing, I have come to realise that y’all will probably see me as some kind of über-sadistic perv for long-haired, weapon-rocking folks that smoke sultrily. Where is the lie? Honestly? No shame!
What are some of your favourite megane wearing anime ladies? Please, share them with me in the comments! I’d love to check out some more characters that wear glasses.
