The brand new season of Anime’s Next Top Model will be premiering tomorrow but before all the fierceness begins, let’s all meet and get up-close to the 11 new girls entering the competition! Continue below the jump but first, don’t forget to watch the OP!
Ani-NTM Cycle 2 OP:
The new batch of girls are much more fiercer than before! From magical girls, previous SaiMoe title holders, lolis (lots of them) to different girls from popular anime of different genres! Let’s now take a close look and first impression for the new girls!
The Cool and Spicy Gal from Shugo Chara
This cool and spicy gal has a shining personality. She sure has that certain spunk and attitude which makes her one of the contestants to watch out for. Besides from that, we ae already hearing raging fans gathering by Amu’s side. Can Amu and her personality be enough to wow the judges and be the 2nd winner of Anime’s Next Top Model?
Strengths: Personality and some MoeGirl™ potential
Weaknesses: Looks like this girl will struggle on high-fashion…
The Magical Lass from the Magical Lyrical Nanoha Series
Nanoha might be just an another Mahou-Shoujo girl but there is something special in her that made her to be chosen as one of the contestants. She can transform from that bubbly, commercial girl to a fierce, high-fashion butterfly as we see it. Will Nanoha prove this and show that transformation plays an important role on winning Anime’s Next Top Model cycle 2?
Strengths: Fierce factor balanced with sweet looks plus past SaiMoe winner
Weaknesses: Umm… same costume every time?
The Dazzling Doll from the Rozen Maiden Series
Despite her height, size, and body composition, Shinku proved that she can still compete in Anime’s Next Top Model. She may be different, but she has the haughtiness, confidence and determination to win this thing. Plus, she has an advantage in the knowledge of fashion, which she can use it during her experience here. Can Shinku beat the odds and become Anime’s Next Top Model cycle 2 winner?
Strengths: Stunning face and fashion taste and knowledge
Weaknesses: Again, same costume everytime…
The Small-town Girl from the When They Cry series
After Rena getting the boot early on cycle 1, Rika is the next to represent the girls of Higurashi. With not much experience on modelling, she might struggle with her confidence and awkwardness but let’s see about that. Can she improve and follow Enma Ai’s footsteps? Winning Anime’s Next Top Model cycle 2?
Strengths: Loli-appeal, former SaiMoe winner for 2 years
Weaknesses: Inexperience and awkwardness
The Space Siren from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Another girl who’s a “second representative” of a certain series this cycle. Haruhi came very far to the competition but struggled in the end. Now here comes the quiet SOS Brigade member, which had already became an early favorite in the preview. Will she step outside of her comfort zone and wow everyone? Can Yuki satisfy the SOS Brigade and take home the title of Anime’s Next Top Model season 2 winner?
Strengths: Fanbase, x-factor and knowledge
Weaknesses: Shyness, awkwardness (but can also be used as an advantage)
The Cherryblossom Princess from CLAMP
Sakura is already a classic foundation of anime girls, which almost everyone honors. Now she enters a competition as a huge threat to everyone. Packing with her vast experience and fashion background, Sakura is a veteran already. Will she be the dominant force of the competition? Can she prove that classics can win Anime’s Next Top Model in its second cycle?
Strengths: Classic background plus first-ever SaiMoe winner
Weaknesses: May be too “classic” that people might get tired of her already.
The Angelic Diva from Ah! My Goddess
She already has that perfect body and a beautiful face which has tons of potential to become a model. Belldandy sure outshines everyone with her stunning features. Can Belldandy prove that she has more than the meets of the eye? Will she work hard and face the challenges towards the ladder of winning Anime’s Next Top Model cycle 2?
Strengths: Body structure and grace
Weaknesses: Bland personality and doesn’t seem to “stand out”
The Wild Flower from Bleach
Probably the last “second representative” girl of the batch. Bleach now sends in Orihime after Rukia on the first cycle. Orihime had huge uh… assets that can be mistaken as a hooch. But Orihime is definitely a kind-hearted gal. Can she lessen her hoochie-ness in her? Will she prove to be a strong competitor and win Anime’s Next Top Model cycle 2?
Strengths: Sweet personality, determination and popularity
Weaknesses: Hooch factor
The (ﾉゝ∀･)~キラ☆ idol from Macross Frontier
This idol starlet is a huge influence to everyone, and now, she takes the stint of being a top model! Ranka seems to be a very cheerful and bright personality, plus she keeps everyhing with humility. She is a peace-lover. Can she manage to face the fierce competition despite all that sweetness oozing all over her? Will she win, not only the hearts of everyone again, but Anime’s Next Top Model 2?
Strength: Fanbase, success and MoeGirl™ potential
Weaknesses: Lacks model potential outside and needs to grow up.
The Glam Blonde from Death Note
With modelling background and the looks to die for, Misa already had gotten it. The only thing is, it’s time for her to prove it in Anime’s Next Top Model. Misa sure looks to be a competitor because of her high-fashion appeal. She also has that edginess and the x-factor. Plus, her personality is also not bland to start at all. Can she stay in focus and keep up her passion to become the second winner of Anime’s Next Top Model?
Strengths: High-fashion appeal, style and fierce factor
Weaknesses: Bitchy personality (can be the potential “bitch” of the cycle)
The Fiery Warrior from the Shakugan no Shana series
This flaming red-hot warrior is the wildcard of all the girls. Shana rounds up the batch of fierce girls this cycle. Packing with drive and the attitude, Shana will do absolutely everything to win this. But, the competition looks hotter than ever, even than her fiery red-hot hair! Will she prove that she’s just beyond moe and tsundere and win Anime’s Next Top Model cycle 2?
Strengths: Loli-appeal, tsundere-appeal, MoeGirl™ potential
Weaknesses: Model-appeal and HF potential
