365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 313/365 Jeanne

Day 313/365


From the anime Kanashimi no Belladonna, Jeanne is a sweet, innocent peasant woman who is in love with the man of her dreams, Jean. Just before they are to marry, Jean finds out he needs to pay a tax to the baron to do so. This is money they don't have and shockingly Jeanne ends up being raped by the baron. After this traumatizing event, Jeanne's life spins into an uncontrollable downward spiral.

Why I like her: She keeps going no matter what is thrown her way (it's a lot) and ends up being a very powerful symbol.

Why I hate her: Everything that happens to this poor woman is just so wrong...

Overall: If you loved the art in Gankutsuou you should totally check out the beauty that inspired it from Belladonna.

This is one of my favourite shots from the film because those eyes are so powerful.
