To commemorate my 100th post, here's a bad ass/cutie of the week combo tray of excellence!
Nobody ever said that all Bad-asses had to be guys, and the same goes for cuties being all looks and no action. Some girls are able to capture your heart and kick your butt at the same time.
Anime: Soul Eater.
Maka is a cutie who wields her partner-turned-scythe to slash apart all sorts of demons. The Witch-Hunter, and later Demon-Hunter Wavelength, which she inherited from her mother is also capable of taking down even bigger enemies.
Maka's voice actress has one of the cutest voices ever. If you are watchihing Seitokai Yakuindomo this season, you may also her playing the part as the "Judo Girl." She really needs to be in more animes...
Anime: Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan.
Yoko is the poster girl of the Gurren Brigade, as well as their sharpshooter. Previous to meeting up with Kamina and jacking some of the enemy's ganmen for their own, she lived in another underground village, honing her skills with her rifle.
During the attack on Kamina and Simon's home village, she almost takes down a ganmen on her own, only to be stopped by an amazing act of bravery my Kamina himself. Still, her large breasts are still able to protect Simon in times of need, when she is not using them to provide home for Boota.
Anime: A Certain Magical Index/Scientific Railgun
Misaka is the protagonist in Railgun, and a supporting Character in Index. Also Known as Biribiri (shocker), she has the power to control electricity. She is one of the seven level 5 power users in Academy City, one of the strongest.
One of her special moves is to use a coin to create an extremely powerful railgun, which basically creates a giant cannon out of electricity. She is cute to the point where her female roommate wants to rape her, and tries every chance she can. On top of that, she is shy and wears shorts under her skirt, but remains being tsundere, especially towards Touma, the only person able to resist her abilities.
