Because you know you have them. Admit it. I don't judge. Actually, I do, but only if I think the waifu/husbando is hot enough. Not that fact that you have a waifu/husbando. Notably, this doesn't have to only be anime/manga. There seems to be an unusual movement to involve live-action stuff these days, too.... Saber (Fate/Stay Night franchise) Elegant, beautiful, badass. So, it turns out King Arthur (at least in the Nasuverse) is a chick. And a cute one, too. Who is hands down one of the most badass heroines in her franchise...and probably one of the top three badasses period (sorry, but even being as cute as she is, she doesn't hold up a candle to the Ultimate Bro, Iskandar. And Zero!Berserker is just insanely OP...and awesome doing it.) This waifu hits all the good points: cute, powerful, a superb warrior, and can kick ass in both a dress and a suit. And she's got balls. She faced down a machine gun-wielding enemy with a sword and jousted another foe riding a magical chariot...on a motorcycle. She jousted a magical super chariot with a Yamaha V-Max. Its some pretty good product placement, to boot. Yang Xiao Long (RWBY) ...Aaaand yet another beautiful badass. So there are (a pair of) reasons why I heart this chick. Surprisingly, a lot of them are related to the fact that the Yellow Trailer alone has all sorts of great fighting/martial arts movies references like fucking Jackie Chan's Gorgeous. Yeah, one of my all-time favorite movie fights - ever - was Jackie Chan vs. Bradley James Allen in Gorgeous, which to this day, still holds up as one of the best examples of fight choreography period. And Yang did a great homage to it in the Yellow Trailer. To awesome club-style music. Hotheaded, bold, and brave (and busty and hot), Yang is fiercely loyal to friends and family, a real knockout (often literally, as she's the punch-first-ask-later type). I fully expect a Luke Skywalker-esque robot arm upgrade in her future. That shoots things. Also, her voice actress is also super hot. Nanoha Takamachi (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha franchise) Okay, so let's get this straight and make it very, very clear: The Nanoha anime is a lot of mediocre, if not outright nonsensical. That being said, the characters a fucking awesome. The story and universe is the kind of strange, nonsensical trainwreck that happens when a first-time fanfic writer or first-time D&D DM tries his hand at world-building. They start off with a simple, solid idea, and then just start tacking on all sorts of random stuff onto it, just because they thought it would be cool at the time. With no regard for if it makes any internal sense to do so, or any regard for giving foreshadowing to these new developments. Nanoha (the show) began as a typical magical girl show in the vein of Cardcaptor Sakura. It ends as a weird (and awesome) marriage of Dragon Ball Z, Star Trek, and the Green Lantern Corps. Reason why Nanoha (the character) is a waifu? Like the two women above, she is an all-out badass. Unlike other magical girls who focus on their friendships, power of love, boyfriends, and I just want to be normal again! woes, Nanoha Takamachi thought, "Holy shit, I'm a fucking magical girl! I'm a fucking superhero! This is fucking awesome!" and took full responsibility - she trained her powers with gusto and even turned her superheroing into an actual job...as part of a magical superheroic intergalactic military organization (which, I presume, gives her a rank-based paygrade, veterans benefits, and a shit-ton of paperwork when not saving the galaxy). So she's basically the anime version of Green Lantern. This is hardly a bad thing. In fact, when I summarize this show to people, my go-to phrase is: "Its what happens when Sailor Moon fights Dragon Ball Z-style battles while dressed up as Gundam and eventually joins the Green Lantern Corps to defend the United Federation of Planets." What part of that doesn't sound like a good time????
