It’s that time again folks. I can bet that more than a few people are going to feel unwelcomed by this next face, but if she doesn’t have a face here I don’t know who else does.

Alluring Quality 8/10: Well she’s got long flowing pink hair and looks good in almost any outfit. Couple that with a sparkle effect that seems to follow her around and you’ve got a pretty desirable package. Hell she was even courted as a little girl so there must be something there. However, at the same time she also kind of resembles a cat and has some plain facial features. Thus a mixed bag package that evens out to around an 8/10.
Callousness 7/10: Well she makes Saito do all her chores, makes him sleep and eat on the floor, and at times spares no opportunity to remind him that she feels she’s better than him because she is of noble birth and he’s basically nothing more than her slave. Despite this she does have her moments and seems to care for him in a way that isn’t just her protecting her interest in him as a choreboy. As a result Louise nets a healthy 7/10.
Power 9/10: Here’s a scary thought though, while appearing to be absolutely useless, Louise in fact is the Lina Inverse of our time when it comes to destructive ability. Most of her backfired spells have devasting effects nonetheless, and when she unlocks that Void magic, can you say “Broooooooookeeeeeen” *Sing Song Voice*. A girl who believes in her superiority by birthright and has the power to cast down those who would challenge that inheritance and keep them under her foot. A scary thought and I’m sure one of the reasons people dislike her character so much. She get’s away with her antics much like Haruhi because none dare challenge her for real. Saved from 10/10 by the mere fact that she doesn’t have full access to her Void powers.
Lolidom Factor 10/10: Being a Rie Kugimiya character often means some degree of irritability and crotch stomping loli behaviour and Louise is no exception. We’re talking Whipping, Kicking, Slapping, Camel Clutching, Heel Grinding action. Don’t get this girl upset or you might get tapped out UFC style before you can say “Zero No Louise”. Perfect 10, no regrets.
Loliness 7/10: Here’s an interesting question, is Louise actual a Loli? I’m going to say….no, but she does sure as hell look like one. Petite, flatchested, thin limbed, all the usual traits, but something feels off. I think it’s her maturity (I mean in terms of knowing the rules of society) and the fact that she’s obviously old enough to attend a formal magic academy that detract from her loliness. As a result I think a 7/10 is in order.
Overall 41/50: So here we are with the first but not the last Rie Kugimiya voiced character on this list. Yeah she’s like the patron saint for this kind of character that I like so much. Anyway, Louise is kind of a mixed bag of a character for a number of reasons. She’s a total bitch, but then she’s adorable at the same time, she’s incredibly useless, but then she’s also ungodly powerful and she’s a loli, but yet not so much. She’d probably be higher on the list if it were for that because she totally owns the Lolidom category. Next time stay tuned for the alternate universe version of her character.
