“June bride” became a national phenomenon in Japan, which means a lot more marriages happen in June than in other months of the year. Of course, anime fans have their take on the occasion as they are getting married to their beloved fictional characters and celebrating their obsession with the medium. Guys, who consider themselves otakus have probably one, or in extreme cases several waifu and would love if they could take their virtual and one-sided relationship to a whole different level, even marrying their favorite anime girls.
Anime! Anime! ran a poll for the favorite male anime characters that Japanese anime fans would like to marry, but this time they turned the tables and reached out to the community to find out which female characters fans would love to see as their future wife. Once again almost 2,000 fans voted and a bit more than 60% were female. Also half of the contributors fell into the teenager age range of below 30 years old.
Now without further ado, let’s check out the top ten anime waifus ranked by the Japanese fans!
10. Hanayo Koizumi (Love Live!!)
9. Ui Hirasawa (K-On!)
8. Kyoko Otonashi (Maison Ikkoku)
