For you, Elis chan….
I just saw Canvas2 ep 22 and my heart aches for Elis. Anime bishoujos who doesn’t get their guys always get to me. Maybe it’s that all too familiar feeling of being the underdog in love or just intense indignation from seeing such lovely ladies suffer the pain of rejection. No one so beautiful should hurt so much. If there’s any consolation, beautiful losers in love often make deep impressions, even overshadowing their victorious rivals sometimes (usually the lead of the series).
Anyhow, here’s a tribute to 10 anime bishoujos who wounded my heart as their’s were rend asunder by rejection.
Spoiler alert for Da Capo, DCSS, SHUFFLE!, Kiminozo, Onegai Twins/Teacher, Saikano, Kanon, Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi, Honey and Clover and FMP TSR.
Yuichii’s callous treatment of Nayuki sickened me. Of course I’m not too pleased with Toei’s treatment of her story arc either. Hopefully KyoAni’s Kanon will address that.
Unfortunately she disqualified herself from the race by claiming sisterhood. If Onegai Twins sees a remake, things might be different since twincest seems to be in nowadays.
I rooted for Herikawa right from the start but since it’s not Please! Dokyuusei, a futile exercise it was.
Normally a love of such intensity from an irresistibly lolicious girl would reap instant victory. Unfortunately Junichi’s a siscon more than a lolicon.
She offered unconditionally her heart, mind and body but was rejected. I cannot even begin to imagine the devastation inflicted on her residual self-esteem.
Ayu showed me how love can become a cancer as intense emotions turns and gnaws on the heart. Pls Nomiya! Cure Ayu soon!
I predict Kotori would have only 3 picoseconds of singlehood if she were to appear in RL. In fact I suspect she’ll start wars as men everywhere stake all to claim her. Yet in the anime realm, she’s a loser in love. THERE IS NO JUSTICE!!!! DIE Junichi DIE!
Special mention to the Suzumiya sisters (Haruka and Akane) who lost graciously to their best friend/precious mentor. Really, all these fabulous girls deserve better but we know that truly, there’s no justice in love, on Earth or in anime.
