Top 25 Pettanko Anime Girls

the-melancholy-of-haruhi-suzumiya-nagato-yuki-illustration-by-akahige.jpg

Anime fans have been busily compiling yet another list of their favourite flat-chested anime girls, and this time certain insidious influences from the depths of sea, space and outer realms have conspired to dominate the ranking with their determinedly uncurvaceous appeal.

The ranking:

1. Nagato Yuki (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)

2. Misaka Mikoto (A Certain Scientific Railgun)

3. Kuroyukihime (Accel World)

4. Nyaruko (Haiyore! Nyaruko-san!)

5. Ikamusume (Shinryaku! Ikamusume)

6. Aisaka Taiga (Toradora!)

7. Alice (Heaven’s Memo Pad)

8. Ririchiyo Shirakiin (Inu x Boku SS)

9. Kuroneko (Ore no Imouto)

10. Tenshi (Angel Beats)

11. Louise (Zero no Tsukaima)

12. Mahiru Inami (Working!!)

13. Misaki Mei (Another)

14. Hinagiku Katsura (Hayate no Gotoku!)

15. Minami Shimada (Baka to Test)

16. Shana (Shakugan no Shana)

17. Haruna (Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?)

18. Shirai Kuroko (A Certain Scientific Railgun)

19. Izumi Konata (Lucky Star)

20. Koneko Tojo (Highschool DxD)

21. Nagi Sanzenin (Hayate no Gotoku!)

22. Saber (Fate/Stay Night)

23. Setsuna Kiyoura (School Days)

24. Shino Amakusa (Seitokai Yakuindomo)

25. Gruier Serenity (Bodacious Spare Pirates)

Whether Konata, once the embodiment of rarity value but now reduced to playing second fiddle to Kuroko, owes her fall simply to the amnesiac tendencies of otaku or their rather merciless persecution of her fallen seiyuu is a matter of some debate.

    Nyaruko is flat? She looks pretty average to me.

    Yeah I know I was about to say the same thing - Nyaruko has nice tits.

    Let's substitute her with Judie Abbott from Daddy Long Legs.

    Fuck this modern bias.

    Also: why no Anne Shirley? Ignoring the agedness of WMT's Akage no Anne, we got Konnichi'wa Anne recently, aka Before Green Gables.

    Why no love?

    Konata #19? She is QUEEN OF PETTANKO. It's a status symbol!

    But seriously, maybe it's because I've been watching anime for 15+ years, but when I hear "pettanko" the first thought in my head is Konata from Lucky Star.

    What does watching anime for 15 years have to do with this?

    The manga began in 2004, and the anime began in 2007.

    Lucky Star (the anime) is only 5 years old.

    You say "5 years" like that wouldn't be an eternity for most people. Alas, the masterpieces of yesteryear will be doomed to obscurity.

    Konata, "Queen of Pettanko"? Have you ever heard of Mayumi Thyme?

    She really isn't flat. And the list is pretty underwhelming too.

    She was much flatter, and in my opinion was drawn much better in the 5 minute shorts which aired last year.

    Apparently, any size that isn't obscenely large is considered flat.

    dude..
    "Pettanko refers to a female character that places a great deal of importance on the fact that she is flat chested. It does not refer to characters that merely happen to be flat chested, but do not make any importance of this fact. The character may be extremely proud of the fact that she is flat chested, or extremely embarrassed of the fact."

    also, sankaku screwed a big time, cuz the rating wasnt about pettanko but about hinnyuu (貧乳), which is only "tiny chest" ...

    Apparently, you has to be on Manyuu Hikenchou level, to be considered as not flat.

    Tooru from A-Channel
    Kokoro Katsura from School Days
    Minami Shimada from Baka to Test
    Shinobu from Nise/Bakemonogatari
    Ookami Ryouko from Okami-San and Her Seven Companions
    Rukako from Steins;Gate..if you count the ep where he was an actual girl for an episode.
    Kagamine Rin...well not technically from an anime

    And Konata should've been #1 >.<

    Substitute her with Cthuko a.k.a Kuuko. Kuuko is the real pettanko.

    I thought the same thing about Saber but she is way down on the list.
    For Nyaruko to be #4 is rediculous

    There shouldn't be a number 1 flat chest. All are delicious and should be ranked the same.

    I personally like Mikoto as well, but she's not necessarily flat chested either. She's in middle school still, both her older clone and mother have large breasts, and the official art has been showing her as average size for her age for a while now. She just has a complex about it mostly because people tease her and all the big breasted adults Touma ends up hanging around in his adventures.

    Index on the other hand is implied to be well in her upper teens, and her childlike behavior is thanks to having her memories erased multiple times. She's pretty much the only true pettanko of the series.

    I think Kuroko qualifies as well. But yeah, I agree that Mikoto's not necessarily a pettanko. The girl's at least got a couple of halfway decent bumps on her, possibly going as high as a B-cup.

    Did you guys read the novel? Saber is mostly flat...Emiya repeatedly says she looks like she's younger than him, so you can assume she has the body of a 14-15 year old cause Caliburn, and Avalon prevented her from aging. From the game: http://www.turboimagehost.com/p/11905176/saber_cg.png.html

    Then that would mean that sh isn't a pettanko, because a pettanko is a full grow girl

    Nagi (sanzenin) is there, and I consider her to be loli... She is 13(14 later).

    Guys stop pulling definitions out of thin air. Loli has no age specifications, it's a collection of characteristics.

    Washu/Flonne/Etna are all lolis and over a thousand years old. Preteen my ass.

    I had the impression that loli means a preteen girl, so unless I'm missing something, Nagi is not a loli.

    Yeah, loli means preteens girls. So Nagi who is thirTEEN is not considered a loli.

    Agewise they stop being loli at 12.

    Loli is under 14, in other words, kids and preteens are considered lolis, after the 15 they are old bags and that is the end

    Nagi like other HnG characters have set birth dates so she's in fact well over 20 by now.

    In the manga its 2005 so she is still 14.

    I think Kagami Kuro is better at this rank, she's still flat like a board until 6th grade. Kokonoe Rin is starting to get busty.
