365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 325/365 Aoi Sakuraba

Day 325/365

Aoi Sakuraba

From the anime Ai Yori Aoshi, Aoi Sakuraba is the only daughter of the Sakuraba family. When she was a child an arranged marriage was made with Kaoru of the Hanabishi family. Kaoru disappeared for quite some time due to family issues so when the time came to get married, Aoi goes in search of Kaoru and will do anything to be with him.

Why I like her: She is simply adorable to me. I love that she always wears a kimono as well since I think that is rare in modern times. I enjoyed the amount of devotion she has to Kaoru even though he needs time to make up his mind in what he wants to do. Even though she is very obedient she is still very strong willed and independent.

Why I hate her: She really does act too much like a doll at times.

Overall: I can't explain why I enjoyed this show since it really is just a lovecom... Aoi had a lot to with it though. Feminists will hate me for saying this... But being the "perfect" wife has always been attractive to me.

I agree.
