Are there WAY more Action Girls this season than usual?

I mean, seriously. Girls everywhere just tearing stuff up. Were there this many fighter girls in every season this past year? I mean, I didn't follow Winter or spring too closely, but I remember the three sisters from [email protected] and the Vividred girls from Winter. Spring gave us a bit more with the lovely Railgun ladies and Annie (and I guess Mikasa, but she was boring) from Titan, plus Saki from Valvrave, the Date a Lives, and Samurai Brides. Summer was pretty chill with the exception of the Monogatari girls, who didn't get much action this season barring Koyomi's molestation.

But Fall has just been off the chain. We've got Koto from Kyousougiga ready to wreck whatever's in her way with a massive hammer. Akatsuki from Log Horizon just assassinating everything, being all ninja cute and stuff. Yukina and her girl-pal from Strike the Blood girls are pretty violent when they need to be, and then you've got Mirai and Sakura and the older women from Beyond the Boundary. There isn't a single female in Kill la Kill that won't seriously, seriously injure you with the possible exception of Mom Mankanshoko, and then there's Unbreakable Machine Doll's...machine dolls. I guess Arpeggio counts too, if sentient warships can be considered Action Girls. Yozakura Quartet just keeps getting more and more ridiculous with its girls, and Coppelion's brought some fine ladies too, especially those Ozu twins.

Anyone else absolutely loving the Fall girls this year?

I love girls from every season, except "that" one.

if you don't know it is probably for the best.

No, the seasons are the same. well, at least to me nothing new has come up. I will admit the subtitle up-skirt shots of yozakura is rather surprising. I am not sure if less would make the anime a "tad" more serious. all in the while if there were more up-skirt in yozakura it would not be as serious as it is now.

Oh no, I wasn't necessarily saying the girls this were BETTER than anything I've seen before (although we do have some doozies this season); I was just a bit surprised at the sheer number of fighting girls this season seems to have.

might just be this particular season, there have been ones there were only a few.

The only thing I care about is if they are good action heroes. That they adhere to Jungian archetypes, something that compels me, not just sew a bathing suit to a pair of nipples and shove a random personality down its throat, and expect it to be awesome, because 9/10 times it isn't.

Never underestimate the power of female action!

Well if anything, Kyousougiga and Kill la Kill are my top favorites from the season. Now that I look at it, there's actually a lot more than I had thought like Log Horizon, Wanna Be the Strongest in the World, Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta, Strike the Blood, Infinite Stratos 2, Beyond the Boundary, etc.
