Japan's Top 10 Waifus (and Husbandos)


Recently, ANN of all places posted this interesting article of a survey conducted in Japan on which anime characters the respondents wished to marry. Most of the characters on the lists shouldn’t be particularly surprising, and its somewhat tilted toward currently running shows, but it’s amusing nonetheless.


For those of you too lazy to click, here’s the waifu list:

  1. Mio Akiyama (K-ON!)

  2. Hinagiku Katsura (Hayate the Combat Butler)
  3. Taiga Aisaka (Toradora!)
  4. Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)
  5. Yuki Nagato (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
  6. Azusa Nakano (K-ON!)
  7. Chrome Dokuro (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)
  8. Sheryl Nome (Macross F)
  9. Yui Hirasawa (K-ON!)
  10. Asuka Langley Sohryu (Neon Genesis Evangelion)

Three of my top 5 waifus are shared (namely Mio, Hinagiku, and Yuki, and not necessarily in that order), but none of the rest approach top waifu status for me. The other members of my top 5 would be Rin and Kagami, of course. It’s unfortunate how fickle fans are, as the majority of choices are from currently running shows. Toradora was likely still running when this survey was conducted, and Macross F only ended a few months ago with a movie coming up. As for Eva, Anno is currently releasing all of those new movies that I haven’t seen…



  1. Kyouya Hibari (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)

  2. Gintoki Sakata (Gintama)
  3. Toshiro Hitsugaya (Bleach)
  4. Mukuro Rokudo (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)
  5. Sougo Okita (Gintama)
  6. Date Masamune (Sengoku Basara)
  7. Tsunayoshi Sawada (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)
  8. Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)
  9. Sebastian Michaelis (Kuroshitsuji)
  10. Toushirou Hijikata (Gintama)

What also amuses me is the popularity of the Gintama men. I mean, the show’s humor is very, very low brow, with tons of toilet and sex humor. I would have figured that females would be turned off by that kind of material. Perhaps they are just so enamored with the sexy men that they don’t care? Is that like me watching K-ON because of Mio even though I find the quasi-plot to be dull and often just stupid?

Well readers, what are your thoughts and selections?
