Shino Asada (Sinon) from Sword Art Online II
All hail gamer girls! Shino Asada joins the cast of Sword Art Online in the third season, SAO II. She's smart and an excellent shot to boot. Her in-game avatar doesn't wear the spectacles she needs in real life. Like the other glasses girls in this article, Shino is cool and calm, appearing unshakeable. However, she's got a kind heart and a traumatic past that surfaces from time to time.
Mirai Kuriyama from Kyoukai no Kanata
Kyoukai no Kanata (Beyond the Boundary) features a protagonist who's just as attracted to glasses girls as many of the viewers, and looking at Mirai Kuriyama, it isn't hard to see why. The petite Mirai is cute but reserved, preferring to keep to herself and blog about her beloved bonsai trees. But her baggy cardigan and glasses hide a stronger side: Mirai hails from a secret society of warriors dedicated to striking down the demonic youmu. She does this with the grisly power of hemokinesis, whereby she uses her own blood as a weapon. Mirai may be afraid to fight, but in a pinch there are few swordsmen more skilled.
Yumi Azusa from Soul Eater
The Death Weapon assigned to protect East Asia. As the glasses will imply, Yumi has a brilliant mind, with a memory almost as photographic as Sheska's. She's an excellent information gatherer and possesses the Senrigan, or Thousand-Mile Eyes, which allows her to see over great distances. Yumi takes her job and her life seriously, and is never seen smiling. She also treats fellow graduates of Death Weapon Meister Academy as a teacher would treat a child, and her strong sense of hierarchy earns her the title of "King of the Tattletales."
Anri Sonohara from Durarara!!
Quiet and timid on the outside, Anri is intelligent and cares deeply for her close friends. This meganekko is one of the few who wield swords, as she is the owner of the supernatural sword Saika that allows Anri to control whoever she cuts, but also causes massive psychological damage to the wielder.
Nodoka Manabe from K-On!
The third student council member on this list. Nodoka is a dear friend of main character Yui Hirasawa, and is the mature and sensible core of the student council, and later becomes its president. She is constantly exasperated by less responsible students—among them the members of the light music club—but is willing to work to help them fix their mistakes. A gifted student and skilled homemaker, Nodoka is nonetheless sometimes overwhelmed by the goals she sets for herself, and relies on her friends to keep her sane. She also has a terrible sense of direction, despite her passion for traveling.
