Ever since we started with the Waifu of the Week posts, there has been one waifu that I have been patiently waiting for the chance to thrust her into the spotlight. Then when her story arc in YU-NO started in week 6 (which was Yomu’s turn to pick) I thought I was going to miss the chance. Luckily, it ran into week 7. So, here we are, finally. The waifu of the week for week 7 is Eriko Takeda from YU-NO.
You might not think it by looking at her, but Eriko is a teacher and the school nurse… I’m not sure if that’s regulation uniform, but no one seems to mind, so why should we. On top of that, Eriko is a scientist and dimension cop from the distant future. Brain, brawn, and that body…
I said this in week 5, but I’m going to repeat it because it’s still true. YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World is an excellent series that deserves far more praise than it’s getting. Far more! It’s full of twists and turns, mysteries and action, teacher’s dressed in corsets and fishnet tights… um… sure, let’s go with that. Eriko Takeda is a bit of a mystery in the series and not just because of her dress sense. Her arc may be over, but I think there’s more to come from her. Seriously, just go watch it. You will not be disappointed.
It was a real struggle this week. I’ve been planning on picking Eriko for quite some time and it never really worked out for her until now, but then I started covering How Not to Summon a Demon Lord too and this week was the introduction of Edelgard… and then, there’s Shera… Anyhow, Eriko is absolutely worth it. My best girl in the series, for sure!
