There's no criteria, they just have to pass a threshold of emotion connection

Oh I've been a huge fan ever since I played Cold Steel 1-4 around 2 years ago. Initially started playing for this girl https://myanimelist.net/character/124009/Fie__Claussell but at this point I like some of the other girls more. Like Altina who you can see on my favorites list now. She's probably still my favorite but the top 3 are really close. The series does have some great girls but the story is really good too. I also love the protagonist who is a total badass.
The game I'm playing right now is actually a prequel to Cold Steel but it focuses on a different protagonist and main cast so it's not like you absolutely have to play it first. There's even another series called Trails in the Sky which came before Zero so at this point I'm playing them all in reverse order XD

But yea they released an English version of Cold Steel first which is why a lot of people are in the same boat and only played that one. This year they released Zero which I'm playing now. And next year they're releasing Hajimari which is the sequel and the one I really want to play but apparently there's already a fan patch which I might just end up playing instead.
Anyway that's the short of it. Overall I would recommend the series but it is a pretty huge time investment with each game taking a good 50-ish hours and there being like 10 of them (or 4 if you just play Cold Steel like everyone else). There are also romance options if you care about that (I know I do).

The actual requirements are pretty simple. The character just has to be sufficiently attractive and have a good enough personality. One can compensate for the other to some extent. So there you go, now I have 200+ characters I would happily put on my favorites list.
But there are only 10 slots so who actually makes it on there is determined by other factors such as who I like more, my emotional attachment to the characters which is also influenced by stuff like recency of when I last watched their show/played their game or even nostalgia. Especially with the lower half of my list since I could easily have Illya or Nadeko on there instead of Rika or Setsuna which I often flip flop over.

Or right now I'm playing Ao no Kiseki and am tempted to add literally 6 girls from that series (here's one of them https://myanimelist.net/character/72239/Tio_Plato ) filling up most of my list but who knows if I'll actually do it.
There are also characters like Ayaka from Genshin impact who I would add for sure (I like her even more than Ganyu) but she doesn't have a MAL page so I can't. In theory male characters could still make it on there but it's just near impossible to beat out all the girls. Last one I seriously considered was Levi.
Not sure if any of this will actually be helpful with what you're trying to do but good luck I guess.

Hmm... Let's see... Not only she's super cute design-wise, she's also extremely well-written, likable and relatable. I can say only that much unless you want a spoiler dump about the story of a random gacha game you probably aren't even interested enough.
Renkini Oct 2, 2022 3:11 AM
I found an unrivalled hyper favorite character who set the bar too high that I basically don't care the rest very much anymore, that's all.
vegeta8639 Sep 20, 2022 11:00 AM
I dropped season 2 so I don't know much about Echidna other than some surface information and what little I saw in the trailer. But I can say her aesthetic is pretty cute. I will probably like her when/if I ever watch S2 or read the novel.
Ram is just okay. Rem is best girl. Highest possible tier of waifu.

Looks like we're getting another One Punch Man season. Hopefully Tatsumaki can actually get some screentime finally.
Renkini Jul 23, 2022 9:03 AM
That much I can agree. I don't remember who said this, me or you, but didn't we talk about how Marisa becoming more and more of a 'sidekick' character to Reimu?

I still have respect for ZUN for solo-handling such a franchise but he clearly has favorites, and doesn't/can't hold back much his bias towards those characters. For danmaku games, it's always Reimu, Marisa, Sakuya, Sanae. For manga, Aya and Mamizou appear a lot more than other characters. I'd prefer a bit of repertoire honestly.

Alice is basically forgotten.
Renkini Jul 22, 2022 10:40 AM
You're saying like Marisa was never a main character in previous games but yeah, good for you.
Renkini Jul 22, 2022 10:28 AM
I was hyped for a second when I saw your comment but it didn't last long...

Another decimal-numbered game and it's not even a different gameplay, plus it looks like it's reusing the cards from Marketeers... I'll just download it for collection's sake when it's out and not even sure I'll play it for real.
Renkini Jul 21, 2022 3:54 AM
That line was a meme, my bro xD

Renkini Jul 21, 2022 3:48 AM
Okay, I'll watch your career profile with great interest.
Renkini Jul 20, 2022 4:46 AM
Haha, you can still see my old profile in my blog post. I won't discard something I put so much time and effort xD

Where do you get your images?
Eh, I just Googled them. They're not even HQ enough. (They're gonna become tiny images anyway.) I remember what you told me so I tried to find "[name] wallpaper" for landscape category and "[name] portrait" for portrait category. e.g. the Persona image I used is something I found by typing "Persona wallpaper" into Google Images.

Hmm, your Honorable Mentions category looks good enough. How about one for games you like? Some of your fave Touhou girls for portrait category might look good too.

Welp, I also changed my profile into modern design lol
