Embarrassing Doesn’t Even Begin To Cover It
Oh sure, on the surface they look like bundles of sunshine, so full of life and love that nothing could even remotely phase them, but you would be dead wrong. There’s no denying that anime has a phenomenal amount of endearing female characters who also happen to attract cringe-worthy situations like a magnet, which often results in us unable to stop ourselves from laughing our backsides off at their expense.
Whether they’re aware the universe has turned against them or not, it’s clear that these three unfortunate ladies have mastered the art of rolling from one awkward situation to the next. Does it make them any less adorable? Of course not!
#3: Rikka Takanashi
“Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions” (2012; 2014)
To say this little lady is trapped in her own world would be an understatement. Suffering from what is known as Eighth Grade Syndrome, Rikka fully believes she is in possession of the “Tyrant’s Eye” and thus has all manner of superpowers at her disposal, something she is very willing to demonstrate, much to the embarrassment of her friends and love interest. It’s impossible to hate her enthusiasm, even if she refuses to take things down a notch.
#2: Tsukimi Kurashita
“Princess Jellyfish” (2010)
With artistic talent and dressmaking skills that are second to none, you would have thought someone like Tsukimi would be well on her way to a radiant career. Well, she would be if she didn’t suffer a crippling fear of the outside world, especially when it comes to men. This all changes when she finds herself entering an unlikely friendship with crossdresser Kuranosuke, who teaches her how her perceptions of beauty have become askew. While she certainly takes great strides to achieve her dream, she certainly has no shortage of crises along the way.
#1: Tomoko Kuroki
We’re not sure what this poor girl did to turn fate against her, but it’s fair to say we have yet to see another girl suffer more humiliations than poor Tomoko. Of course, she doesn’t help herself, as her quest to become popular and get a boyfriend is often impeded by the fact she often turns to the internet and erotic video games for advice. We would say she reaps what she sows, but the fact she finds herself in one devastatingly cringe-filled situation after another just makes us feel sorry for her.
