Loveable yet wobbly Dojikko is this week’s weeb word of the week.
Isn’t it a good one?
However, in the interest of fairness, we’d want to examine the hidden humorous art of clumsiness in both sexes.
So, here are my top recommendations for the best anime characters with two left feet in the world.
10. Usagi Tsukino
Sailor Moon, the anime
It’s safe to say that Usagi has mastered the skill of falling face-first onto the ground over and over again.
There is a good chance that she will bump into someone every time she turns a corner. And she stands an 80% probability of being hit in the face by any ball that flies in the air.
If you’re expecting anything, you’re going to be disappointed. She’s so bouncy and full of energy that neither her feet nor gravity can keep up with her.
We’ll cut to commercials now to discuss how safe it is to have super powers if you’re clumsy.
9. Orihime Inoue
It’s Bleach time!
Seeing her resume, you wouldn’t guess Orihime was as uncoordinated as she is.
You have to give her credit; she’s a formidable opponent who knows how to fight effectively. While still unable of running behind someone without immediately following up with a nice headbutt.
It’s a good fit for her personality, since she’s a full squatter who fantasizes constantly.
8. Zenitsu Agatsuma
The Demon Slayer
Is it any wonder that Zenitsu is prone to panic attacks and meltdowns at any given time? Even the tiniest of scares can cause him to fall to his knees or back in prayer.
In fact, even a bird may have terrified him to death.
There are still moments of brilliance to be found in this guy. When he’s in the zone, he can one-shot any enemy with surgeon-like precision, no matter how unconscious he is beforehand.
When it comes to using swords, he has no idea where to begin.
A Japanese anime series called KonoSuba
Here’s Darkness, a fighter who has no idea how to properly wield a sword.
Not only does she lack the ability to wield a sword, but she also lacks a sense of direction and accuracy.
But at least Stormtroopers have the advantage of being able to fire from a distance. A person standing still cannot be hit by darkness, even if it is in front of her.
I adore her, but she’s in desperate need of self-improvement.
6. Noelle Silva
Black Clover, an animated series
Okay, I’ll admit it: Noelle has improved her “not falling on your face” skills throughout the course of the series.
There are still a few dozen episodes where she keeps falling off her broom whenever something Asta-related happens. It’s kind freaking annoying. To make matters worse, she’s completely unable to direct her water spells in any way.
When she’s agitated, she has the eye-hand coordination of a fish, but at least now she has the ability to fight. Until she forgets about Asta.
Miss Ueno, how clumsy are you, Anime?
Because of the name, I felt compelled to include this one.
If you watch this show, you’ll be added to a number of FBI watch lists. Every time we see Ueno, she’s either being pervy or having the reasoning abilities of a rock, or she constantly tripping over some sharp objects.
No doubt about it, Ueno’s antics can be amusing at times. And the contrast between Tanaka’s steadfast demeanor and her erratic behavior is quite the show.
Miss Ueno, on the other hand, how sexy you are.
It’s time to kill it, Akame!
One of the better-known characters whose clumsiness is highlighted is Sheele.
Sheele is guaranteed to drop something, burn something, or lose something if you assign her any task in this universe.
Only a cold-blooded murderer is exempt from this rule. As long as you offer her a pointy object, she’ll be a professional killer in no time.
To be honest, I’m beginning to notice a connection between anime clumsiness and murder.
3. Hanako Honda
In the anime Asobi Asobase.
Specifically, I’d like to point out the Shogi club’s shoe-throwing competition with the girls.
When Hanako flings her sneaker at a 90-degree angle, it lands right in the middle of the starting line. You have to applaud her foolishness or clumsiness here.
Shogi’s president deserves special recognition for allowing this crazy young lady to descend with a bicycle in order to obtain the greatest possible distance.
And yes, she did triumph. In the process, she had disfigured her entire body.. They made me chuckle more than I should have, and that’s saying something.
2. Mako Mankanshoku
Kill la Kill is a popular Japanese anime series.
This character, Mako, is the most endearing of all time.
She’s positively bursting with vitality. A scripted acid trip is what each of her monologues resembles.
Additionally, she’s so inexperienced that you can fool her with a stick, basket, and cheese as bait.
Surely no one is surprised that she frequently loses her footing. However, Mako is also loved by the gods of Kill la Kill. So even in the most desperate situations, she manages to escape.
1. Wendy Marvell
Tales of Xenosaga
Fun fact: Wendy was nearly crushed under the weight of falling rubble when she couldn’t keep up with the cat she was chasing.
Surely, this would be her lone misstep when it comes to walking on uneven ground… oh boy, Wendy has a lot of those stories.
I mean, she’s one of the youngest characters, and she doesn’t have a lot of self-assurance. As a result, it’s hardly surprising that she’s not the most charismatic character… Wendy, come on, you even fell on the ground.
The fact that you’re attractive and that our crew was in need of a morale-booster is a blessing.
