What makes the perfect anime legs?
Amazing tone– No one likes saggy legs (sorry grandma!). Anime legs have always been juicy and fit. They even sparkle sometimes. I guess they work their legs in the gym. Though some characters may have overdid it. Bisky from Hunter x Hunter, for example.
Perfect color – While real models strive to obtain a glowing color on their legs, anime characters have it easy. They’re just born with it! They come in rosy peach, tanned brown, or even pale white for some people (nervously raising my hand) who like them pale as a corpse. Everyone is a winner in anime!
Long – Notice those scenes when the camera starts from the ground and slowly goes up the leg? It roughly takes three seconds to travel up. It clearly shows how long the character’s legs are. Some artists like CLAMP make them so long that it looks absurd. Then again some people like it that way, so don’t judge.
Silky Smooth – In almost every anime battle after the main character is hurt, she will have injuries on her face but never on her legs. It’s like there’s imaginary armor protecting it! Also, leg hair doesn’t seem to grow on anime girls. That’s what we love about anime. It defies science and basically everything we know.
Is it too much? Anime has been known for making the best and sometimes worst body illustrations. It’s like artists are purposely distancing anime from reality. One thing for sure though, it does raise our expectations for reality.
We already know there is no such thing as too many legs in anime, so here’s a couple of anime that will fulfill your leg desires!
