Through my whole ‘career’ an anime fan, I have never once encountered a meganekko (glasses girl) I genuinely like. For some reason, I don’t find glasses as much of a turn-on to me and girls with glasses are usually trapped in certain archetypes that are simply bore me to inception. They are either shy class rep type (the Iinchou from Seto no Hanayome), tsundere strict class rep type (Honami from Rental magica), fujoshi otaku type (Fuji Yoshi from SZS) or the silent type (Nagato Yuki from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu). It’s as if glasses are ice coffins that guarantee to mold your character into set archetype. That is why I never comprehend the logic behind their attraction. There’s also the fact that technically glasses are nothing more than accessories and said traits can still apply perfectly on non-glasses girls. It’s not much a defining trait and appears as stickers on pre-designed character. In fact, one of the main moe points a man can expect from meganekko is the moment when they TAKE OFF their glasses! I mean, what kind of moe point is that if the best part is when they lose the point?
However the world is huge and there is always first time for everything and this season I found my first genuine affection towards one meganekko, Kuribiyutei Gankyo from Kumeta’s nonsensical Joshiraku.
