Top 10 Cutest Girls Of Fall 2015

Here we are, ladies and gentlemen. A new anime season once again brings a new chance for me to enlighten you all about the cutest girls of the season and why you should rearrange your "Favorite Characters" section on Myanimelist. This definitive collection of the Top 10 Girls of Fall 2015 is the final countdown of the year in the category, and may be succeeded by a championship of some sort if I feel like throwing that together. So grab your dakimakura, throw on some easy-listening music, and let's do this thing.

The rules are simple. There are none.

Girls are graded by their personality, their voice, and of course, their appearance.


10) Shiki Magata

Anime: The Perfect Insider
CV: Ibuki Kido

Okay, so there may or may not be a part of me that deep infatuated with serial killers. Especially the ones that are 14-year-old super-geniuses. I mean, it all started with Samara/Sawa from The Ring/Ringu respectively. From that point on...I don't know man. I can't help it. Either way, Shiki is basically what Samara would have been if she spent less time crawling out of televisions and more time programming computers or something. Her dead, lifeless...voice...only adds to the mixture.

9) Mikasa Ackerman: Junior High Edition

Anime: Attack On Titan: Junior High
CV: Yui Ishikawa

First, there was Mikasa Ackerman. Then, there was another Mikasa Ackerman. The second one, however, wound up being a less ripped, schoolgirl version of her. Accentuating her emotionless eyes and unrequited love for her semi-brother instead of her abs, AoT Junior High's Mikasa is equal parts hilarious and adorable. She has had like three expressions (And that's being generous) through an entire season so far and each one is the perfect image of a girl fit for a spot in the top 10 this time around.

8) Julis-Alexia von Riessfelt

Anime: Asterisk Wars
CV: Ai Kakuma

Ahh, the tsundere -- Japan's true gift to the world. Equipped with pink hair and a weird sci-fi headpiece thing, Julis is one of the most true-blue tsundere of the year. (Plus, you totally get to see her in her underwear IN JUST THE FIRST EPISODE OF ASTERISK WARS). *Clears throat*. Anyway, Julis is the only female in Asterisk Wars that really stands out to me, and it's for good reason. She is constantly at war with her dere side, only letting it out in moments of intense...intensity. But when the dere escapes, it's like a cuteness overload and you just want to pat her head along with her weird sci-fi headband thing.

7) Annie Leonhardt: Junior High Version

Anime: Attack On Titan: Junior High
CV: Yuu Shimamura

Our seventh place slot goes to my personal favorite AoT character (Apart from Levi), Annie Leonhardt. The great thing about the junior high remix of Annie is that we've already seen her in a Yukata AND a cheerleading outfit. These cute get-ups contrast with her angsty "I hate the world" side so well that it turns her into a character even cuter than she was in the original AoT. I didn't even know that was possible. Needless to say, I am looking forward to whatever outfit Attack On Titan: Junior High dresses Annie up in next. (Please be a swimsuit).

6) Ouka Ootori

Anime: Anti-Magic Academy 35th Test Platoon
CV: Reina Ueda

You know, I'm normally not into girls like Ootori. At least not on the surface. There are moments though when her dere escapes (Much like Julis) and it's literally too much to handle. PLUS, she has red hair and blue eyes and those are both extreme pluses in my book. She can also handle a gun very well. *Clears throat again*. Ootori is my favorite badass of the season. She isn't just there as eye-candy either. She actually has a story -- and a good one at that. For these reasons, she deserves to be where I have placed her.

5) Kujou Sakurako

Anime: Beautiful Bones
CV: Shizuka Itou

And so another unlikely candidate makes her way into my top 10. The great thing about Sakurako is that even though she is a grown woman, she is a complete child at heart. Who cares if she has an unhealthy obsession with dead things? Not me -- we already went over that. Despite her childish tendencies, Sakurako is another super-genius that also happens to be a detective AND an osteologist. What a strange combination of careers. I just wish that I was the one who had to look after her instead of Shoutarou.

4) Karen Jinryou

Anime: Shomin Sample
CV: Chitose Morinaga

There is nothing quite like those characters who appear super-badass on the outside, but wind up being completely adorable and cutesy when you actually get to know them. The first time we see Karen, she attacks the protagonist of Shomin Sample with her secret Jinryou family sword technique. But in the obligatory harem turn of events, she just winds up cutting the clothing off of everyone. Thanks, Karen! The great thing about her is that at her core, she just wants to love and be loved. It's unfortunate for her that the girl in the #3 spot is also from her anime.

3) Aika Tenkuubashi

Anime: Shomin Sample
CV: Yuu Serizawa

Speak of the devil. Though Aika couldn't nail the cutest spot in this countdown, she easily takes the #1 spot for "Most fun." Aika just wants to be popular and is willing to do whatever it takes in order to get that way -- as long as that doesn't include talking to other girls. Right from the start of Shomin Sample, Aika is seen as this super-lovable, super-gullible bundle of energy just waiting to burst. As she uncovers the mysteries of the commoner, she only becomes more fun while, at the same time, busting out of her shell a bit. Aika truly is one of the cutest characters to emerge from a harem this year.

2) Mari Nikaidou

Anime: Anti-Magic Academy 35th Test Platoon
CV: Kanae Itou

The runner-up medal goes to the fiery "Witch of Aurora," Mari Nikaidou. Originally an enemy but converted to a good-guy through amnesia, Mari is an excitingly fun and entirely adorable.  She even wears a scarf. I love scarves! I also love long brown hair and half-tsundere (Yet super dere) snaggletoothed side characters! She really hits all the marks that my favorite girls wind up hitting. Plus, she has the most adorable voice of the season, so that's a plus in itself. I know she won't, but I really hope that Mari winds up being the inevitable love interest in Anti-Magic Academy...or my own.

Fall 2015 Champion: 1) Shinoa Hiiragi

Anime: Owari No Seraph
CV: Saori Hayami

She's back! The previous runner-up of my Spring 2015 countdown has returned to claim victory over all of the other contestants to grace my television this season. This was an easy victory for Shinoa, who lost inevitably to Rin Tohsaka just two seasons ago. I have loved Shinoa since Owari No Seraph started. Hell, she was the only reason I carried on with the first season (Which eventually became good -- it just took a while). Honestly, every time she even gets to speak I'm just overcome with joy. Every single mannerism she has is literally perfect. I remember making a statement a few months ago about how I wish every female character was Shinoa Hiiragi. Well, I stand by that statement now more than ever. If I do decide to do a championship countdown, you can bet she'll be a contender.

And there you have it, everyone, the 10 cutest girls from the past three months. Feel free to change your desktops, wallpapers, etc.

See you again at the end of next season for another "Cutest Girls"

Feel free to read the rest of my stuff until then!
