Tags: Anime Girls, Arina Tanemura, cute~!
Alright back to the shoujo (and specifically, Arina Tanemura) girls now for week number four and girl number seven.
Kamiya Komaki from Shinshi Doumei Cross, best known for being Haine’s adorable little sister with a sister complex. The non-incest kind mind you.
Komaki is the president of the Junior High section of the Imperial Academy. She adores her older sister, Haine and will do anything for her “Nee-sama”s happiness. She’s also been in love with Kusame, Haine’s step-brother since the two of them started working on the student council together and she oh so cleverly navigates her way into his heart despite the fact he’s “in love” with Haine. She has an “ojou-sama” attitude, but she’s actually incredibly naive.
I don’t normally like side characters like Komaki. I mean Komaki isn’t even a secondary character, she’s on the same level as Kasuga really. Her main story in the manga was explored in a 30 page special (the Komaki and Kusame special). Otherwise she basically serves as a character to support Haine’s own story and character development.
But I’m not alone in adoring this cute little ojou-sama. She’s the most popular character among Ribon readers, beating out Ushio with her legion of fangirls (3rd place) and even her big sister Haine (2nd place).
Really…I think it’s incredibly rare for a character to be so popular. She’s not as popular among other ShinKuro fans I regularly come into contact with though. At least on YouTube I became sort of the…Komaki and KomakixKusame expert. Heh.
When people find out how much I like Komaki they seem sort of surprised. I mean…everyone already read how crazy I am for Tomoyo, Ushio, and Nagisa. Now multiply that by at least two and you can come to understand how I feel about Komaki.
To be honest, Komaki’s ranking might actually be higher than where I decided to place her in this list. The only thing is I get the feeling that I don’t have the same reasons for liking Komaki as I have for liking the other girls higher (and even lower) on the list. There’s no really personal reason i like Komaki. I don’t know anyone like her, she doesn’t remind me of myself, she’s not a character I spend a lot of time defending…she’s just cute. Oh god she’s cute! I want her to be my little sister!!!
Part of the reason why I’m probably loving Kisaki from Mistress Fortune so much is because she reminds me of Komaki without the ojou-sama attitude.
But this post is going to be much shorter than usual. Mostly because, I am without real reasons to adore Komaki as much as I do. I just think she’s so cute. Look at her! Agh!
So selfless too! And we all already know I love my cute selfless girls.
To be perfectly honest, I think Komaki is the closest shoujo manga gets to lovable by both genders moe. I’m sure all of us girls secretly want a little sister like her (if you say no, you’re lying) and if Komaki showed up in a harem anime, I have no doubt she’d have a legion of fanboys.
She’s kind, stubborn, cute, naive, polite, and she looks pretty when she’s crying. She’s the ultimate bishoujo! Even with her feelings for Kusame she’s so cutely tsundere in the beginning. She’s got everything down!!! She’s the perfect anime girl!!!
Heh…the weird thing is I’m only half-joking. if you really take a good look at Komaki…she really is perfect. Now normally, someone who wants to be a writer (like me) would hate a girl who is oh-so-perfect, but Komaki is a special exception.
She probably has some flaws, though those flaws are so cute that you really don’t consider them flaws. But I really do see her as perfect, and somehow…I just love that! I can’t explain it! It’s impossible. Komaki is just perfect and I love her for it.
She makes some big mistake and she’s just so cute about it that you don’t think there’s anything wrong with her making the mistake. And she’s absolutely beautiful! She’s drawn with black hair sometimes, but her hair’s supposed to be purple (according to Arina-sensei) and she’s just so…beautiful! Girls with long hair really have a better chance at looking beautiful and then you give them nice wavy hair too…*sigh* I love Komaki.
I want her to be my little sister! Though I can’t help but think I’d get jealous of her absolute ojou-sama perfection. But it’s okay! Komaki is really too cute to be mad at!
She really is perfect. I think it’s almost impossible to love her, even if you hate perfect characters.
Of course, to quickly state what made me notice Komaki and caused me to think of her as a favorite character…that would be her relationship with Kusame. So cute! If someone out there still hasn’t read their special, go buy volume 5…now! Her absolute pure love for Kusame…it’s touching.
