This is the Hundred-and-eighty-fifth week of using the "Perfect Anime Girl Sheet". Notice: This Blog may contain Unmarked Spoilers.
[center]Today's girl is:
Fate Testarossa (-Harlaown)
The Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha series.
Note: Once again I haven't read Force and Vivid I haven't read much of. Thus, most of the information in this blog will be on the main three series. Also, I will probably be referring back to the previous blog so here's a link.
Hair: Fate has long flowing hair regardless of the series. Though to be fair, it's usually tied up in a thick twintail that I do like. It's not as good as when she doesn't have her hair up, but the black ribbons really stand out with her blond hair. And indeed, her hair color isn't perfect (for my tastes, at least), but it's a really nice golden color overall. In Force, despite me not wanting to say anything about it, she has a ponytail that I like more (at least her hair is behind her head, I suppose).
Eyes: Fate's eyes are a nice burgundy color that matches her dark outfits well. However, it's still the dreaded RED and thus I can't give her many points for it. Despite being a problematic color though, there isn't much wrong with Fate's eyes (and even that is just my personal preference; I'm fine with her having red eyes as it makes her look good). Other than not wearing glasses, but so many other girls have that problem that I've stopped mentioning it. Still though, Fate has soft and lovely eyes if the color isn't my favorite.
Face: Much like Nanoha, Fate's face is simple and cute. I love the art style after all. Unlike Nanoha though, Fate is much more reserved. I love her emotionless in the beginning as well as her shy blushes in the rest of the series. She's got a really cute face and I enjoy seeing it.
Now, some people might be wondering why I'm using the Force portraits if I like the other series more (specifically StrikerS). And indeed, the anime seasons I do prefer more than the manga. Especially telling people apart. But I don't want to get into that, and I'll just say that I'm using these portraits as that's about when this arc is going on. Not because I like the more "serious" look of Force, it's just convenience and plot.
Build: As I said in Nanoha's blog, Fate's body is unique in that she has shown off both her child and her adult body. And much like Nanoha's, Fate's mature body is deliciously awesome. Fate's child body isn't bad, to be fair to the lolicons, but I'm far more interested in her busty and curvy body. That's not to say that Fate's loli body is lacking a "curve" though. Through some twist of fate (and yes, I facepalmed at the unintended joke as well) Fate was blessed with near-perfect buttocks. Even in loli form she's "endowed" with her backside, and even wears a near-thong! Okay fine, saying "near" might be too generous (especially as her Sonic form IS a thong), but her butt is gorgeous! Last week I said that Fate shows off a certain body part and that, again, is her ample rear.
Breasts: Again, like Nanoha Fate is flat when she's a child and grows a magnificent majestic pair of massive mammaries. Because alliteration is awesome and appealing. And while Nanoha tends to get most of the breast service in official art, it's not like they don't occasionally switch things up (notice: site is nsfw but image is sfw).
Clothes: Fate's wardrobe is full of cute outfits. Her main in the first season is a black bodysuit-type of outfit with a long cape that reminds me of a vampires (probably due to the collar and red inside). Her lower half is covered (somewhat) by a pink-ish skirt that doesn't even go all the way around her and is "held" by a brown belt. She also has very high leggings as well as black boots. And I really love this outfit. The colors look PERFECT on Fate, and it's one of the reasons I suppose she doesn't look terrible with red eyes. And as I said before, it looks like she has a thong in back.
In the later series she wears a more business or military black suit. This is complete with a black miniskirt and oh god pantyhose. I LOVE this outfit as well, despite it not having a tie either. Her magical girl outfit changes as an adult too, though not much as it basically just gains a bit of armor (that gets "shed" when in Sonic form). She also has a blue sort-of suit commander's outfit and a brown suit as well that I like. Just not as much as the black one.
Finally, she has plenty of other various outfits in official art like a yukata, bridal, swimsuits and other beautiful outfits that Nanoha also wears but I forgot to mention.
Personality: Fate is a shy but also determined girl. She was used as Nanoha's "rival" for jewel seeds in the first season and is a great example of the "Dark Magical Girl" archetype (that is, a magical girl that, while originally on the side of evil joins the heroes through defeat). Ever since, Fate has been nearly inseparable from Nanoha. She eventually opens up a bit, and I love how their friendship is forged in the flames of war. Fate also has electric powers before I forget, and her device's name is Bardiche.
Fate's backstory is possibly one of the darkest things in the Nanoha universe. She was a clone of her mother's original daughter (whose names are Presea and Alicia, respectively). Her mother still has trouble dealing with Alicia's death so she makes Fate go out and retrieve the Jewel seeds. However, Presea is not a kind woman as she continually ignores Fate unless she has news. She even beats her own daughter with a whip for not getting ENOUGH jewel seeds! Fate does find friendship in Nanoha and eventually gets back to normal, changing from an emotionless girl to a dandere. Either way, I love her personality. As for Fate's maternal side, that's probably due more to Lindy who adopts her. She raises Erio and Caro quite well too, and is defensive of her "children". But speaking of children, she shares an "official" child with Nanoha, as you've seen is Vivio. All in all, the type of soft-spoken girl that I really enjoy.
Finally, while Yukari Tamura did a great job as Nanoha she had a wonderful dynamic with Nana Mizuki, Fate's Voice. Nana did a great job bringing out Fate's shyness and emotions.
Libido: As with Nanoha, Fate really doesn't show romantic love that much. She's also teased ship-wise with Erio (though that's more guardian) and Signum (which is more of a rivalry). But most people could agree that Nanoha and Fate belong together.
Age: As I said before in both this blog and the last, this area depends on what series you're watching. Fate is the same age as Nanoha, so she could be 9, 15, 19, 23, or 25. Averaging out her age, she's about a 18 which just barely gets an "A" from me.
Total Grades: 86
Average score: 9.6
Final Grade: A-
For Fate getting a score above 85 and not being a meganekko, she gets an image.
Since last week had a bonus Fate, this week contains a bonus Nanoha!
