11) Ichika Nakano
Anime: The Quintessential Quintuplets
CV: Kana Hanazawa
For what I imagine is the hundredth time in a row, a Kana Hanazawa character has made it onto the list. And had I made this list at the normal time (Probably three or four weeks prior to its actual creation), she probably wouldn’t have even been on here. In a sense, Ichika is the most mysterious when it comes to the Nakano sisters. Despite being the oldest and seemingly the most reliable in patching things up when they go sour, Ichika’s tendency to hide her true feelings turns her into a sleeper candidate for best-girl of the whole show. And, of course, this wouldn’t be possible without one of the most seasoned seiyuu on the market. At the end of the day, Ichika is so much more than she lets on. And, thanks to several well-acted and well-written emotional climaxes, she’s much higher on my list than I ever thought she’d be.
