Call for nominations

Who is the scariest girl in anime? When Nanami smiled in Katanagatari, it occurred to me that the question might be worth a poll. So, which young women give you nightmares? Besides Nanami, some candidates might be Kirika and Chloe from Noir, Punie from Magical Witch Punie-chan, Yomi from Ga-Rei Zero, perhaps Lain Iwakura and Sailor Saturn. Who else? List your nominations in the comments.


By the way, does anyone know how to get in touch with Lain and Kirika? My site was inaccessible from mid-afternoon until just now (10:30 p.m.), and I’m a wee bit irritated. According to the hosting service:

The datacenter in which [xxx].com resides, has blocked the primary IP of the server due to a phishing complaint for a client utilizing the IP. The issue has since been resolved. Technicians at the datacenter have been made aware of this and we are awaiting them to unblock the IP. Connectivity to WHM/E-Mail/FTP and Web services maybe interrupted for any clients that are using this IP until the block is removed.

I figure that Lain can easily determine who the culprits are, and Kirika can deal with them appropriately.

  1. The Higurashi girls come to mind, especially with Rena’s penchant for taking out her billhook to deliver with some slashity upon whoever her victim happens to be. I’d also put Maria from Umineko as a scary girl who’s probably more creepy than scary. I’m sure more will come to mind at some later time…

  2. I dunno; there’s something wrong with your page that makes IE pop up a “stack overflow” error every time I load it.

    As to scary girls, Asakura from “Haruhi” has to rate right up there.

  3. I second the Higurashi girls. (I find Shion creepier than Rena, actually. While Rena would kill you in a second, Shion would rather take a few hours… or days…)

    Lain-of-the-wired certainly fits (if you’d like a commenter to confirm one of your candidates.)

    Rico from Gunslinger Girl. (Okay, you’re a brainwashed pre-teen cyborg sniper. Stop being so bloomin’ cheerful about your body count!)

    Lucy/Nyu from Elfen Lied. (Obvious choice is obvious.)

    Enma Ai from Hell Girl. (Hello, I’m here to calmly consign your soul to an eternity of torment. Why? Seems it was a case of mistaken identity, actually. Don’t take it personally; the person who damned you will be following along in a few years…)

    Vampire Princess Miyu? (Probably too obscure to get any votes. And not a tenth as scary as Shion, heh.)

    Almost any random Claymore. 🙂

  4. Diva from Blood Plus
    Dokuro-chan from Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan
    Road Kamelot from D.Grey Man
    Aizawa and Kansaki from Great Teacher Onizuka
    Satomi from Shadow Star Narutaru
