Awashima Seri:

  • The second-in-command of Scepter 4 at the age of 22 
  • This means that her abilities using a sword, as well as general physical capabilities, are the best in Scepter 4′s after Munakata Reisi, the King himself 
  • In a male-dominated clan she has made a name for herself - this is exemplified by how simultaneously terrified and immensely respectful her clansmen are toward her. It should be noted that Seri is also a very fair, kind, woman. Her clansmen choose to respect her; they aren’t forced to.
  • Izumo also respects her and often talks to her when seeking advice. If HOMRA’s effective second-in-command and second-strongest clansman is also both scared of and admires her, then you know she’s someone who’s earned her reputation. 
  • Just because Izumo calls her “the cold woman” doesn’t mean that she’s actually cold - she’s shown to love her clan very much. She likes helping innocent people. However, as the lieutenant of Scepter 4, she has work to do and expectations to fulfill. None of that can be achieved by being frivolous or super-nice to everyone. 
  • Expecting women to be submissive, docile, or constantly nice is misogynistic. Seri has every right to shut Mikoto, Izumo, Yata, Fushimi, and any other man down, especially if they’re treating her in a juvenile, condescending, or otherwise rude manner. 
  • Munakata had no right to assume that she was being “arrogant” in assuming control over a situation - he was being a bit facetious, of course, but if he expects the best out her, then he shouldn’t complain about her (rightful) actions later on. 
  • She wrestles snakes. While the rest of her male clansmen are cowering in fear from a snake, she calmly wrestles it. 
  • She can beat men up. 
  • Have you seen her muscles? She likes working out. A lot. It’s part of her daily routine. 
  • She is not reduced to a romantic interest; she has her own backstory (that has… yet to be completely revealed…). She is a completely independent character who cares for her King and her clan. 
  • That she is sexualized isn’t her fault - it’s GORA’s fault. Maybe stops acting as if K is some progressive anime and instead recognize that its creators are misogynistic fucks who sexualize the women for money. 
  • She doesn’t put up with any man’s bullshit. I repeat: she doesn’t allow any man to control her pace, and this includes her bratty subordinate (Fushimi), a bratty skateboarding boy from a different clan (Yata), and a suave bartender (Izumo). 
  • She is organized, strategic, efficient, and intelligent. She is logical and takes control of situations well. 
  • If this was a male character, y’all would be happy that she’s confident. But the minute we have a usually cool, calm, and confident female character, suddenly she’s ~arrogant~ and ~cold~. 

Awashima Seri is a highly accomplished woman. She isn’t arrogant at all, and even if she was, she has every damn right to be. If you can glorify Fushimi, Yata, Mikoto, Munakata, and Yukari (who are all annoyingly arrogant and presumptuous), you can certainly shut the fuck up about Seri’s supposed “arrogance”. 

like i dont get how the same fandom that believes things like “Yata as King would be cool”/”Fushimi could be a good leader and teamworker” is able of underestimating the women but here we are and im not surprised

Neko 

  • has been able to survive on her own by mastering her powers and abilities after choosing to do so when he ‘family’ rejects her
  • has been entrusted with tracking Yukari and Anna’s direction when Anna’s kidnapped and succeeds in locating them
  • fucked up some jungle’s members day up and you’ve seen her run around do not try telling me she couldn’t have worked her way around jungle’s goonies once Kotosaka broke the Cat Mountain because you are wrong
  • constantly evades Kuroh whenever he lashes out at her with the spatial hand
  • literally acknowledged as having more stock in her abilities and powers than Kuroh
  • has been strong enough to live on her own and maintain an upbeat, positive personality, despite at the bullshit she went through as a child.
  • constantly the one that tells Kuroh to get his shit together when he starts doubting the search for Shiro.
  • as in she isn’t easily deterred, has her mind set on things and goes through with them when she’s passionate about them
  • not afraid to speak her mind at all
  • protective of her loved ones and will risk her life for them.  except not really because she’s confident in her own wit to be able to outsmart foes (Kuroh in “Kitten”, Munakata and the rest of S4 in “Killer”)
  • Ultimately has a lot of mental strength.  Sure she gets overwhelmed at times but goddammit 99% of this site cries when they lose internet connection.

Seri

  • also speaks her mind
  • is dedicated to her job and takes it seriously
  • has been shown capable of fucking someone up with just her bare hands but why pay attention to that when you can just mangacap the same panel of fushimi with a baby 40 times.
  • could hold her own in a fight if GoRA wasn’t wanking to men interrupting the women seven times in five seconds.
  • constantly tries to voice her concern for Munakata’s state to him but respects him enough to not push it too much seeing as he’s constantly dodging the problem
  • has it in her to interact with HOMRA to their face without insulting them 100 times over (see, sincerely summing up Mikoto’s condition to Yata even though the latter was saltier than Mickey D’s chips).  She has it in her to actually respect them.
  • takes the risks of Kings seriously.  She never wanted it to come down to Mikoto being slain.  Hence all those wild ass methods she suggested to use in order to keep Mikoto from pitching a fit and endangering a fuck tonne of lives
  • commands her unit effectively and sternly.  she has faith in her men’s capabilities (even when one cant stop going Dan Seri your bobbie s thanks Hidaka)
  • literally does not take fushimi’s edgy cloud strife brooding ass’ shit and makes sure he at least stays somewhat with the programme.  but she still worries about him when he’s clearly not doing well.  she cares for her clansmen.

Anna

I shouldn’t have to spell this one out so let’s just sum it up as her being someone who had to force herself to mature way faster than any child should have to, endured torture and abuse for the sake of her aunt, often tries to “shut herself off” for the sake of those around her (remind you of anyone lmao) and fully understands the depths of her abilities as a King now, and doesn’t want to run things like Mikoto did.  She knows she’s not him and with her as King, things in HOMRA have to change because she wants to do all she can in order to support them and vice versa.

Kukuri

I get it she’s a nice normal girl who does her best with everything she does with zeal and enthusiasm and wants to help and support her friends and classmates and that threatens you but honestly you hating her because she’s not Broody McEdgy Bishonen XI and calling her a “walking pair of panties” when a fictional character has no control over grown men catering to otaku communities by making the camera pan her 17 yea old ass every five seconds isn’t helping your case.  She just wants to help her loved ones let her live.

Like it’s almost like not being a rude violent tsun that punches everyone who disagrees with her voiced by Rie Kugimiya doesn’t automatically make a female character “weak” how about that.

I literally cried over him… don’t even touch me… Mikoto-sama….
