Most of the times i dislike. But for me it comes down to the storyline and the way the characters interact.

Well, you've got shuffle like others mentioned. You've got Rurouni Kensin (aka. Samurai X), Sekirei, Kanokon, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien (Rumbling Hearts), Monochrome Factor (seems to be that way...), naruto..., Seto no Hanayome, To-LOVE-Ru, Zero no Tsukaima, Black Lagoon, Full Metal Panic!, Green Green, Kaze no Stigma, Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de (They are my noble masters), Love Hina, Lovely Complex, Nodame Cantabile, Onegai Teacher, School Rumble, well, there are plenty of animes where the main char likes the energic girl :P

You do have a point tough, in most animes, the main char falls for the timid and shy girl.

Timid and shy girls can be nice and charming. Not all timid and shy girls are the same and annoying but a lot of anime don't have good characterization and lack depth, so they made them become some sort of a stereotype. And a lot of characters in anime don't grow up and change their personality a bit overtime. That's why most timid and shy girls in anime fail to turn their personality trait of this into something more positive. Think of it like this: you are shy and timid at first, but on the other hand you can become calm, mature, caring, elegant and lady-like without changing your nature drastically and trying to be something you are not.

Added to StyxBlizzard's list, Urusei Yatsura is an anime you can try. It's a bit old. The main female characters are not the timid and shy type. I only read the manga (long time ago) and quite liked the ending. Note the graphic styles and plots of the anime and the manga might be a bit different.

The shy girls don't have much of a personality. Some shy girls are great such as Yuki from Haruhi and Kotomi from Clannad; I think they're better because they've been developed more. I can't stand the whiny, crybaby types, though - they ruin everything.

Nearly all the guys in anime fall for the shy and timid kind of girls that are always crying and damsel in distress types(*coughs* Clannad) It makes tough girls seem like shit! That annoys the hell outta me! :fury:


Hmm. Well, I'm OK with the guys (or even the tough girls for that matter) protecting the timid girls. I always like seeing guys doing good by girls 'cause there are still too many guys out there who treat girls/ women like crap (and this makes us OK guys look bad).

I also really like girls/women who can kick butt and take good care of themselves. I don't think the timid girls take away from the really strong ones. That Girl in Clannad who's always beating on that blonde guy is just as appealing as the starfish girl in my eyes, if not more so. Other really appealing "tough" girls/women in Anime are Clare and Teresa from Claymore, Chidori from FMP, Anna from MONSTER, Balsa from Seirei No Moribito, Momoko from Sumomomo Momomo, Lucy from Elfen Lied, and a few from Mai Hime. I was going to say Revi from Black Lagoon but, well, she likes killing a bit too much for my liking.

yeah but that's not the point, if they both had a good personality and character. the main guy is OBVIOUSLY gonna fall with the dimwitted and stupid one That's the way it is!


Well, I guess if this happens too much in Anime, where the guy only falls for the timid girl or gets scared off by the tough girl's strength, that's not a good thing. I guess I haven't seen alot of shows yet where that happens. Can you name a few for me?

They're quite a few: Clannad (Tomoya and Nagisa), Air (The main guy and Misuzu), School Days (Makoto and Kotonoha), NANA (Nobu and Hachi), H20: Footprints in the sand (Takuma and the blond girl), Haruhi Suzumiya doesn't really count but Kyon was a little bit too friendly to Mikuru and NOT HARUHI! But maybe the story will develop in the second season. Hopefully it will!

Kind of depends. Most of the time those tough girls are mean to the guy and no guy wants a girl who's going to be a total $#%^% to him.
