Hello readers! Before we begin any shenanigans, let us from Eleven Tsuki wish you a Happy Twin Tail Day!!!
For those who are hearing about this day for the first time, you shouldn’t look down on it. It’s the day where people from all over the world (*cough* the internet) celebrate the glorious-ness of twin tails, a day in which boys from all over the world are socially allowed to “admire” this great hairstyle and not be judged; while the girls are given the excuse they need to switch up their style and get into twin-tailing.
It’s also worth mentioning that it was chosen to be on February 2nd because the date would be written as 2/2, matching the hairstyle which has two identical pony tails hanging on each side.
Because we love our twin tails, we’ve decided to join in the enthusiasm this year and sum up all the twin tail characters we know and love, from the most popular twin tails and honourable mentions, to our own personal favourites. Let’s begin!
The Popular Ones
Hatsune Miku, the first Japanese Vocaloid
Well, Hatsune Miku should not come as a surprise, actually. She is really famous and has been kicking ass for a long time now, even if people around still ask what anime is she really from. *face palm*
Madoka Kaname from Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Madoka comes to me as a very strong contender as she is also quite well-known in the community. It’s probably because of the anime, nevertheless, her iconic hairstyle along with her frilly outfit really sets her apart from the average characters. Of course, all twin tail characters are still loveable. 😉
Hachikuji Mayoi from Bakemonogatari
The special thing I love about the Monogatari series is that each and every single character is really well done and have personalities that are really everything but the expected. Hachikuji Mayoi is really no exception to that fact. She is both wise and very cute. Although being just a fifth-grade elementary school girl, her personality and cute looks really earn her a spot amongst the highest of high.
Gasai Yuno from Mirai Nikki (The Future Diary)
There is honestly no shame in admitting that what you’re seeing is getting you on. If you’ve been on the internet long enough, there is no need for an introduction for her. But for those who don’t know, meet Gasai Yuno the proud queen of the Yandere genre, and for really good reasons. Really, REALLY GOOD reasons. Part of what makes her so recognized in the community is the bloody stuff, and also because of how the internet is proven wrong; even with pink hair and a very sincere smile, you can still do some bat-shit crazy stuff.
Yazawa Nico from Love Live! School Idol Project
Nico-Nico-NIIII! …I’m honestly sorry, but you can’t deny her catchphrase is pretty infectious. But aside from the fact that she has her own iconic catchphrase, her position in the Love Live! idol group has really helped boost her recognition within the community. Be it good or bad, it’s hard to deny that her twin tail game, along with her idol attitude, has really earned her a honest spot in this list.
The Honourable Mentions
Ene from Kagerou Project
Kagerou Project, Kagerou Daze, Mekakucity Actors, it honestly does not matter what you call it. Ene is honestly one of the most two-faced (in a good way), moe characters (in the manga) I’ve ever known, mostly because of how cute and funny she is. That’s also how the community caught onto her.
Nozomi Tojo from Love Live! School Idol Project
Unlike Nico, Nozomi is not famously known for her twin tail game, but more for her “other assets”. Nevertheless, she still earns a spot in our honourable mentions, both for being an idol and a really beautifully drawn character.
Kurumi Tokisaki from Date A Live
Looking for a super eccentric and crazy female character that is hot, and does not go by the name of Gasai Yuno? Meet Kurumi Tokisaki from Date A Live! Her crazy personality is really what has gotten her a lot of attention from the Date A Live fans, and the fact that she has twin tails all the more adds into her appeal.
Kotori Itsuka from Date A Live
Being a two-faced character and truly liked by the community is very hard, just look at Nico. But Kotori Itsuka pulls this off effortlessly, although she isn’t a famous character among the whole Date A Live cast. Her pretty face and double personality has really helped earn her a spot in this list.
Sanae Dekomori from Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!
Nathalie: C’mon, she’s larger than life, annoying, loud and really hyperactive. At the same time strangely dedicated and sensitive. Oh and don’t forget she’s really “kawaii”. That’s the most important part. The fact that her hair is strong enough to take those potatoes is also super cool.
Azusa Nakano from K-On!
Jane: I mean, c’mon, she’s just so cute, I would totally want a little sister like her. ﾍ(￣▽￣*)ﾉ
Shizuku Mizutani from Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
Chloe: I really love this series and I really love this character as well. She’s just so smart and independent.
Black Rock Shooter from Black Rock Shooter
Aiman: I just love how bad-ass she is. We all know Black Rock Shooter does not speak much but her actions definitely speaks volumes about her personality. Of course, I’m definitely referring to the OVA of Black Rock Shooter.
Asuka Langley from Evangelion
Amos: Cute, sexy, independent, intelligent and kicks major ass. What else can a man ask for?
Nagisa Shiota from Assassination Classroom
Hayley: I actually like his character the most, because he’s a natural born killer.
Rin Tohsaka from the Fate series
Asyraf: ’cause twin tails + tsun tsun = goddess
Lissa from Fire Emblem: Awakening
Joon-Keat: I just love how crazy and fun she is. I mean c’mon who wouldn’t love Lissa when they play fire emblem. ><
