Super Senpai is a term I kind of accidentally came up with in a discussion thread here on MAL(A Link to the Past). It's used to describe a specific type of female anime character. Originally, it was a bit vague, but as time has passed, I have come to a better and more complete understanding of what the term Super Senpai entails.
A Super Senpai has several traits. Some are essential, while others aren't exactly necessary. A True Super Senpai has all of said traits and more. A True Super Senpai is VERY rare to come by, as I've only encountered four of them total in the hundreds of anime series I've viewed.
The traits that have asterisks are necessary for Super Senpai in general. The ones without are the "added bonuses" that I previously mentioned. The traits are as follows:
Voluptuous figure(I.E. Huge breasts**, big butt, etc.)*. Older than the main male character*. Power(This is in regards to both status and strength, which in itself is sometimes in regards to the status and strength of the male main character. Strength in physical prowess, fighting ability, and/or proficiency with weapons. A True Super Senpai ALWAYS has both status and strength.)*. Taller than the main male character*. At least somewhat sadistic. A very unique type of smile(Similar to "smiling with your eyes," but much more. This kind of smile is seemingly caring and warm. The outward ends of the eyes are generally slanted downward during a smile. This is a key trait of a True Super Senpai.).
The four True Super Senpai that I have found are as follows:
In the cases of Kara no Kyoukai and Rebuild of Evangelion, I have opted to list my favorite movie of each series as its representative. Meaning, I view both series as a whole my favorites, but the individual movies I listed are my favorites of each said series. So, the entire Kara no Kyoukai movie series is my second favorite anime and the entire Rebuild of Evangelion movie series is my 4th favorite anime. BAM!
I love watching anime and playing video games. I also like to write poetry here and there on the side and I regularly play guitar.
