TAG – Five Flaming Hotties


MIB did the honor of tagging me in this little game.  Thanks!  Now, I have an excuse to talk about five anime girls I find attractive.  There are two ways to concoct a list like this: 1) a list based on raw physical appearance or 2) a list based on a combination of appearance and personality.  I have chosen the latter so as not to drive away the many female fans of this blog.  This particular game had its start in the blogs Realweegiemidget Reviews and Thoughts All Sorts, which are linked to below.

Sake 3

The creators probably intended for real persons to be named, but all of the movie stars I would name are well past their prime or deceased.  (I’m a huge fan of old movies.)  Also, my dear readers are likely more interested in anime characters than, say, classic stars of cinema like Sophia Loren.   Considering the wide range of personalities among anibloggers and that 82,380 female anime characters now exist according to Anime-Planet, these “top hotties” posts tend to be more interesting than one would initially think.  May my choices encourage you to check out some of the anime in which these heroines star!
