After watching as much anime as I have, it’s inevitable that favorites will soon emerge. These are the girls who grabbed my affections and wiggled their ways into my heart. These are the girls who made me wish I could be their friend and ring them up for some hanging out. These are the girls who I admire and respect, and at times, who I wish I could be like. Thank you for your sweetness, mischievousness, courage, and fortitude.
