2015 Anime Villains Tournament, Round 2, Match 14
Um… chick fight?
Ryoko Asakura - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya -vs.- Beatrice - Umineko no naku koro ni
My vote goes to Beatrice.
Definitely Beato. Her time as a villain was something readers of the manga or VN, or even those who experienced the (terrible) anime, will agree was absolutely unforgettable. One minute she'll be ****ing creepy and disgusting, the next minute she'll be classy and swagtastic (and yes, I totally just said that unironically, sue me). Even when she stops being an antagonist in the latter half of the VNs, she doesn't stop being any less awesome and memorable. Sayaka Ohara makes her even better.
I really want to go into detail, but that would require major spoilers, and it would take hours.
EDIT: Actually screw it, I'll give one example.
At one point, she tortures a woman by forcefeeding her the remains of her siblings, as well as her daughter's (still living via magic, because Beato's a witch) head, all with an awesomely wicked laugh. And yes, it's just as horrifying and gross as you think.
Giving it to her easily.
Asakura's a pretty cool villain, and she makes quite the impression especially when you consider that she had only about 15 minutes of total screentime in the TV series, but she's ultimately a very minor character in the story. Not so with Beatrice at all.
Okay everyone's giving pretty convincing reasons about how dastardly vicious and evil Beatrice is, so for now I think I too shall vote for her just to see where she goes from here.
Well, I voted for Asakura because she's the only one I've actually seen, but after reading HP's description of Beatrice, I kinda wanna vote for her now.
So consider this a split vote, if that's possible.
My vote goes to Ryoko Asakura.
Also going with Asakura, once again a character that makes a lasting impact with very little screen time.
Voting for Beatrice.
