a primer on anime female "types"

This is an article about the wussy JRPG girl but the historical background is also useful for understanding the female archetypes in anime. After finals I'll get around to writing up those anime reviews and exploring those archetypes. And then: Wonder Woman.

Here's a few archetypes to get you started. I won't list examples. Yet.
  • busty, sweet, but stupid
  • vixen-ish rogue
  • tough, loud, and obnoxious - usually short
  • geeky lesbo
  • the quiet warrior

Enjoy Chun Li Baby in the meantime. She's so adorable. And if you want to generate more, go here.
