I must’ve come to certain conclusions after doing this for as long as I have.
The three hottest female characters illustrated and animated the past three years are:
Number Three: Sonoshee McLaren, Redline (2009)
She can build a car, cook, and drive like a champ. Hot-blooded and strong, the kind of woman you want to be in your cockpit with you.
Number Two: Anarchy Panty, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (2010)
Foul-mouthed, moronic, sex-crazed, vindictive, callous, out of control, hot as hell. ANARCHYYYY~
Wrong, so wrong.
Number One: Sheryl Nome, Macross Frontier (2008)
The distinct, perfect, and best-in-class blend of hotness, awesome and fail. She is the Galactic Fairy, the Goddess of Battle and the hottest, most awesome, and most fail female (the conditions of her failure have been the subject of countless blog posts in WRL’s archive that I won’t bother repeating them here). I don’t want no static perfect character. I bow down to Sheryl, the one go beyond Minmay herself.
Hey ghostlightning, I thought you liked moé, where are the moéblobs?
Moéblobs aren’t hot. They can be cute, pretty, etc. but that’s their core appeal. They’re not hot. Sure in the hands of skilled (fan)artists they can be dolled up hot-like, but those are exceptions to their core character. They have to be transformed to hotness. These three hot girls however, can be moé whenever they want. But why would they?
Thanks for the demonstration Ranka-chan, now go play with Ai-kun and keep out of trouble.
