Tall, Dark and Bishoujo

Welcome! What is this club about? This club is dedicated to a specific kind of anime girl: The tall, dark and Bishoujo type. The definition goes as follows: She's tall, pretty, aloof and composed. As a result, she generally attracts quite a following wherever she goes. She usually has waist-length, dark hair. If she's unusually pale she might also be a Black and White Beauty. Usually, but not always, a Statuesque Stunner. While it might not be fair to say that trouble follows her everywhere, it's accurate for most cases of the type. This sometimes causes an undeserved reputation as a delinquent. Often the target of one or more Schoolgirl Lesbians. If she is one herself, expect her to have a more-or-less Moe or Shrinking Violet girlfriend. The term was coined to describe Azuma Hazuki of Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito, playing on the old description of a man as "Tall Dark And Handsome". However, this is not a purely physical characterization; the aloofness is a key aspect. This character type crosses over rather regularly with the Ojou and Kuudere. Feel free to compare the examples.

She's simply the most attractive manga/anime character I've encountered.

Dunno who dat
But im up for Mari Kurihara to be added.

Also Bayonetta clearly meets the criteria

Mari Kurihara from Prison School would make a fine addition. She's tall, highly intelligent, and looks absolutely stunning, especially in the manga.

Hmm, good question. She one of my old favorites too. I think what's holding her back is the "dark" feel, she might be eligible lol.

Anways, adding Utaha, she's very much TDB. I think we covered just about all of them except for series we haven't seen.
