It’s only recently that I got hooked by the Kimi ni Todoke (君に届け) series by mangaka Shiina Karuho (椎名軽穂). It makes me doki-doki whenever I read/watch it. Although there are many scenes that make me cringe (from being too cheesy or too annoying), there are many aspects of it that I like.
One of my favourite elements of the series is the strong friendship between the main female protagonist Kuronoma Sawako, or sometimes “Sadako”, with her 2 best friends Yano Ayane and Yoshida Chizuru.
The relationship between the 3 girls is what I call true friendship. That’s why I decided that my favourite supporting female anime characters are Chizuru and Ayane. Why? Because I would love to have them as my best friends, too.
Chizuru is tomboyish with great athletic skills. Ayane is a girly-girl who deeply understands the
twisted complicated female mind. They use these strengths to protect their friends. If they were my best friends, I know that I’ll feel safe and secure with them. Chizuru would readily beat up anyone who threatens me. Ayane will use her cunning to make my enemies self-destruct. I think that the two of them complement each other perfectly.
I also like how their seiyuu portrayed their characters. Chizuru is voiced by Sanpei Yuuko (三瓶 由布子), while Ayane is voiced by one of my favourite seiyuu, Sawashiro Miyuki ((沢城 みゆき). Well done to them! (whispers: To be honest, I like their portrayal more than that of the main protagonist Sawako, but this is a secret, alright? Ssssh!)
What I love about the characters of Chizuru and Ayane is that they truly love and treasure Sawako as their best friend. They protect and support her no matter what. They accept her for who she is. There are no back-stabbings between the 3 of them (yet). I fervently hope that none will happen as the series goes on.
Chizuru and Ayane from Kimi no Todoke are my favourite supporting female anime characters because I want to have them as my friends. Who’s yours?
