30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 4 (Female Character)

30-day-anime-challenge4

Again with that ever word. This time it was a bit easier actually. I don’t have that many female characters I like. I was going to chose Morioka from Recovery of an MMO Junkie but then I changed my mind. This girl I have chosen drove me insane when I started to watch the anime she is in. I more or less hated her. She is annoying and she pulled all my strings but somehow I came to love her.

Yes, it’s Shimizu Megumi from Shiki. She is the perfect picture of the girls I don’t like in an anime. Big boobs and slender waist. Pink long hair and egocentric as fuck. But, and there is an important but, she turns into something else. Something dangerous and exciting. A beast if you will. Vampire. Because Shiki is a show about vampires. She is the first villager to be killed and turned by the mysterious family that has moved into the western like mansion on the hill. The mansion Megumi dreams about moving into herself. She is dreaming about a lot of things, like leaving the little village and her crush Yuuki. She is like every other 15 year old.

What I like about Megumi is that she is just as shallow and egocentric as any 15 year old. A Ms. Know-it-all who looks down on all the villagers. They laugh at her for being a bit stupid and dreamy and I am not sure she really understands that. She is however a very polite girl and she talks with everybody and is very outgoing. A very good treat I think. And she acts accordingly for a 15 year old when her little dear crush Yuuki is nearby, being shy. But that all changes when she dies. She becomes pretty malicious.

I didn’t start to love her until after her transformation. She is creepy as fuck as a shiki. She has no problem with being undead and more or less attacks whoever she feels like. She especially attacks people close to Yuuki. Somehow her feelings are more intense after she dies. I find it interesting and I find her actions interesting. She goes after Yuuki’s best friend since she sees him as a threat. Poor bastard.

I’m not gonna say too much about the anime but I recommend it strongly. I really like Megumi, she is awesome in many ways. A naive, dreamy 15 year old who turns into a cold blooded stalker shiki. With pink hair. I do like pink hair, I lied at the beginning. Sorry about that.

    1. You are such a wise dude. Well, I don’t think anyone can choose just one. If you can then you are a psychopath. It’s like choosing one child over the other. Impossible.

    1. I don’t think many people like her really. I had this hate/love for her at first, before she turned but she is the right kind of evil for me. As I wrote in the beginning of my post; Morioka was my other choice, the one I thought about first. There’s some contrasts for you. Total opposites but I love them both for so different reasons.

  1. Nice….I haven’t seen this character in action yet, but I have seen herdrukte a number of times mentioned over on other blogs in posts. But…I doubt she will pass my favorite female character, which is The Major from Ghost in the Shell. No character will probably ever make me forget her lol πŸ˜€
    But seems like your choice is a really fun, and deliciously wicked character πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    1. She isn’t the most loved character in Shiki. Rather the opposite probably. But I like her a lot because she turns into something so different and scary. Shiki is a really good anime, I can highly recommend it. It has that intense aura around it.

      I haven’t seen Ghost in the Shell. :blushing: I think we have it though. We got it just before the live action movie came out because we wanted to see the source material first but then we never came around to even see the live action movie. I still want to see the anime though. The movie not so much.

      1. Haha: no need to blush. If there is anyone whi should be doing that it’s me. There are so many great animes that I haven’t seen yet that I could write an entire encyclopedia lol πŸ˜‚But Ghost in the Shell is worth checking out.
        As for Shiki: that one is an anime that I want to check out: it sounds like my kind of show πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

      2. Let’s blush together, shall we. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ My list of to-see anime is kilometers long by now. And it’s added to every day. This is not good for my heart. I will be sitting on my death bed and watch anime in panic, still watching the list grow. There will always be something, right? (no need to add Boku no Pico to that but do add Shiki ;))

      3. Haha….I think that I will never ever complete that list, unless I take two years off work and on,y watch anime in those two years….than I might come close to completing that list lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Shiki is definitely already on the list, that’s for sure πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
