All right, Otaku fam! Waifu Wednesday is back, and this week's theme is Ultimate Waifu. A dangerous theme for me, because now I have an excuse to gush about Miki Hatori again.
Now, I've talked about Miki before, but this time around I'm going to go in for a little more detail. Miki Hatori is a character from a manga called LIFE, and is main character Ayumu Shiiba's best friend. (Although I interpret them as much, much more because damn, they're cute together... please, find this manga and read it. You will not regret it.) Now I have plenty of anime/manga girls that I like, but Miki is the first girl-- may, the first character, period-- that I can say I am downright addicted to. If this manga had just gotten an anime, and posters for the show were available, her likeness would be plastered all over every inch of wall I could find. No lie. (I would also add "no homo," but I'm bisexual and she's beautiful, so... homo. So very, very homo.)
So why do I like her? First of all, she is the most loyal person you could ever find ANYWHERE. While she wasn't the first person to befriend Ayumu, she's definitely the most real. She'll do anything to defend Ayumu or make her feel a little better, and doesn't even think about ditching her because she's not "popular." She's the kind of person I wish I had met in high school.
Second of all, she's got a heart of gold. Despite being a delinquent, she's the kindest person you could possibly meet. Which also means she'll have your back in a fight... and don't worry, she'll kick somebody's ass.
Third: she knows how to have fun! She's got a youthful spirit (Everyone: of course she does! She's in high school! Me: I know, but I meant more than that) and an enthusiasm that just brightens everything around her. This also relates to another good thing about her: her stoicism. She's been through some hard times in life, but never loses that cheerful spirit.
And finally... her style. She rocks that delinquent/punk look like a boss. I mean the girl slays.
And that, friends, is Miki Hatori.
