Anime Viewer 1: Emilia is best girl! She's sweet and is the girl Subaru really loves!
Anime Viewer 2: No Rem is! She cares for "Subaru-kun" way more!
Anime Viewer 1: No Emilia!
Anime Viewer 2: Rem!
Anime Viewer 1: Emilia!

Waifu Wars. Something that no anime watcher can escape. However, these wars are generally the debate of two girls, and there is often one or more girls from the same show that get left out. In the above example it would be Ram and Beatrice...and of course Felix. However, there are people that like these "under-appreciated girls," enough so that they are favorite girl of the show, but we often get forgotten in these two-sided debates.

So with that, I ask my question:

Who Is Your "Under-Appreciated Best Girl?"

My personal choice, by a mile, is Isshiki Iroha, but I would love to know who your "hidden gems" are!

Excited to hear your thoughts and opinions!

Deishuu Kaiki obviously

but for real probably Levi Kazama

Kaiki so forgotten amongst all of the other monogatari girls. But clearly was best girl from the start :(

Suguha Kirigaya from SAO doesn't get enough love. It's always Asuna this, Alice that. When a girl has been with you since her birth, it's time to show some damn appreciation.

Hmmmm this is a tough choice. Probably between Darkness (KonoSuba) or Rindo Kobayashi (Shokugeki no Souma).

I take this back, Nanami Aoyama from Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo is my underrated best girl.

Not necessarily my "best", but an underappreciated girl nonetheless is Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran! She's one of the most down the Earth but incredibly endearing women that anime has to offer.

Well, to be fair. Ouran HHC is a Reverse Harem/Shoujo. So in that case it would be "Under-appreciated Best Boy" LOL

But I agree, Ouran is great and Haruhi is better! Believe it or not that was my first ever "Real Anime!"

Mayuri > Kurisu.

Come at me. Kurisu is a generic science-girl trope whereas Mayuri has a compelling backstory and more interesting relationship with Okabe in addition to having a cuter voice and appearance. I cannot for the life of me work out why people go so crazy for Kurisu.

Also Megumin.

As long as anybody ever talks about that blue-haired crap excuse for a waifu, Megumin will be under-appreciated. To be totally clear so there's no confusion, Aqua is a total and complete 100% garbage tier waifu and any attention she recieves is an insult to explosion girl.

Ai Hayasaka is my favorite girl from Kaguya-Sama and looks like the fanbase loves her...



Although the manga gave her plenty of good chapters for her development, she didn't have the deserved attention in the anime.

Actually a Manga reader myself and Hayasaka is currently my favorite of the girls. Unfortunately 159 chapters in and I feel like Hayasaka still gets the least attention of all the "main" characters :(

I love Claymore characters. But there are so much of them, for the most part, they are not fleshed out enough. But I do love Teresa with all my heart.

That will be ichika nakano from go roubun no hanayome. All this war between miku and nino faction is making us forget who the best girl is.

Hiratsuka Shizuka from OreGairu. I find it absolutely baffling that not a single otaku I've ever come across thinks she's best girl. No other female, either fictional or real stands a chance.

Nitta Minami from Idolmaster Cinderella Girls. She is by far my favorite character from the show. But with not that much screen time (and perhaps people just like the other characters more), she gets overshadowed by some of the other characters (who are plenty great in themselves). But Minami is amazing.

Nami is surely the best girl.

Most rape, most yandere, most twincest, most trap.


It is obvious that "obscenity" is not a term capable of exact legal definition; in the practice of the courts, it means "anything that shocks the magistrate".

Really? I think she has more attention than Chika, for example.
Chika didn't have any development arc, while Hayasaka had at least two arcs to develop her character.
P.S.: I'm not complaining. Hayasaka >> Fujiwara kkkkkk

well its a plot driven anime anyway (not character driven story) but the manga has more screentime for them though

My under-appreciated best girl would be Oragami Tobichi from Date A Live. Normally all the attention goes to Kurumi, Yoshino or Tooka. I love teh understated nature of Tobichi and her naughty side which she uses to try and mask her insecurities.

Another would be Cana from Fairy Tail, she doesn't often get much attention due to all the hot women in FT, but I've always thought she was interesting and would be great to have a fun evening with, kukuku >.^

Kudelia, lol. She's the best of all Gundam 'main girls', by far. Even if you don't account for the fact that she's the prettiest and hottest.
IBO gets a lot of flak honestly, but it should be praised if only for the fact that they finally made a good female lead for once

Meet Sakurako Kujou.

Not very well known and probably aswell under-appreciated, but in my eyes WAIFU MATERIAL!

I will never find a 3D girl this passionate about bones and dead animals. :-(

Anime was indeed a mistake, since we prefer 2D waifu's over 3D wamen.

I agree. Isshiki Iroha is my choice. She one of the most under appreciated best girl.

Ai Hayasaka is underrated in Kaguya sama. Yuika Shiwahime from Hanebado and Kira Tsubasa from Love Live are also underrated. I feel Saegusa Mayumi also get overshadow by the imouto.

It's probably rally vincent. She's badass, has a great firearms collection, owns a gun store and she has problems with the ATF, all great traits
I really enjoy those "helicopter ride" memes

My underappreciated best girl is Aoi Futaba from "Asobi ni Iku yo!". A lot of fans overlook her either for being small-breasted or for being a meganekko or both, but I don't mind small breasts and I think meganekkos are hot. Aoi is also very smart, is somewhat of an otaku, is she's good with guns, and on top of it all she has superpowers.

Its because we already have unanimously decided her as best girl. Even the list start after her. She is the undisputed no.1 and no oregairu fan will say otherwise

Hachiman would have married her if she was 10 years younger, so very fair argument.

I will take the "under-appreciated best girl" part as any female character that you consider a best girl and has been favorited by less than 1000 members on the database. Under that criteria, my election is Kaoru Tanamachi from Amagami, who, as I'm writing this, has a total of 508 favorites on the site right now.
What I can say about her? She's cute, pretty, a good friend, the right amount of tsundere, kinda tomboyish, has beautiful sex hair, a beautiful voice, is hardworking, funny to hang with and has a really nice belly. I would probably date her if she was a real person, so she's my pick for sure.

@fancyjasper Watched a bit of GeGeGe this week and I admit, she is quite the appreciable character. Cute even with her (bobby?) hair, strong and caring, she even seems knowledgeable of her condition and mature about it! And all of it endears a character to a viewership.

As an OreGairu fan of the prime order, I commend you all for this enlightened discernment. However, at some point, when a series happens to be that likeable, I presume we should collectively agree on accepting a whole cast to be deemed "best girls".
Even then, you participated in a fatal error. Totsuka reigns over everyone, and has transcended an artificial barrier in the heart of Hachiman, that of genders.

Personally, I much appreciate Sancha Sanyou's best girl: Odagiri Futaba https://myanimelist.net/character/33803/Futaba_Odagiri

Darkness from KonoSuba.

don't get me wrong nothing is wrong with megumin, but the internet's love for her totally overshadows how awesome of a waifu Darkness is.

loyal

willing to protect you

due to her own kink she'd probably be down for anything ;) ;)
(even if she wasn't the embarrassment she'd suffer would tie into her kink)

wealthy

plus im a sucker for blonde's and blue eyes are awesome too (its the one thing the nazi's got right )
