Unlucky Anime Characters
Anime has many difficult past origin stories and events that are unlucky to characters. Luck is a word meaning to have good fortune or good things to happen in one’s life. Even, St. Patrick’s Day would save these people from the misfortune of the world in the slightest. Reika Ko is a pilot of Apollo in Genesis of Aquarion. She might be an important pilot however, others avoid contact with her for how unlucky she is. The constant reminder of her boyfriend’s coma, who she thinks herself is the cause of, by fellow pilots traps Reika in a mental prison of self-doubt causing more misfortune. Tsunade might be one of the Legendary Three Ninja in the Hidden Leaf Village of Naruto, but gambling is not her cup of tea. Other than, the Legendary Three Ninja, she is also known as “The Legendary Sucker” for no luck in gambling. When it comes down to it, she knows when the bets are off and releases her “Strength of a Hundred Seal” Jutsu like the Great Ninja War. Anne Happy is an anime full of bad luck with many characters having it. These female protagonists have specific cases like Ruri’s lack of luck in love, Botan with very poor health conditions, and An’s terrible luck all around. The bad luck of everyone is a common interest and forms a bond over that subject. Yamcha had appearances in three tournaments in which he lost two due to future champions and one whose disguise was really clever. Yamcha’s luck in Dragon Ball Z was truly tested in Vegeta’s attack on Earth where he was the first person to fall victim to the notorious crater. Unfortunately, he earned the status of Yamcha’s Death Pose and tag of “you were Yamcha” meaning recklessness as an insult. Sara Ringwalt starts the series by being a mistake for LaLa-Ru and is imprisoned as a sex slave. Life is not easy for Sara because so much was taken from her in a blink of an eye. The entire mistaken identity causes Sara to blame LaLa-Ru for her misery and says “Keep her away from me or else I might kill her.” If you are fortunate, then good for you but remember, everyone has different circumstances.
