Otaku boys will not hesitate a bit to agree that girls in anime series are a species of their own. They have both similarities and differences with their real-life manifestations. The positive feminine features are always enhanced in anime for the perusal of all. It goes without saying that the beauty of anime girls is otherworldly.
But it would not do them justice to the only comment upon their looks, as their talents and prowess are at par with it. The characters have a will stronger than anything and that is what draws the real otaku to them. Each of the female characters in this list of Top 50 Best Female Anime Characters is a complete package and 100% “waifu” material.
Asuna is an icon in Anime Culture. She adds a lot to the series ‘Sword Art Online’ and in a way is an ‘ideal’ for everyone. She is an emotional person but at the same time is aggressive and one of the best players in the game. She is beautiful but is not afraid to get her hands dirty.
Her looks changed throughout her stay in the Game – she has long, orange-brownish chestnut hair and hazel eyes. In the early levels of SAO, she wears a dark red leather tunic with a lightweight copper breastplate and leather pants with boots up to the knees along with a hooded cape. After joining the Knights of the Blood, she wears a red and white uniform like all other KoB members and wielded a rapier made by Lisbeth, called the Lambent Light.
Her relationship with Kirito is one of the best in Pop culture. The way they met is the stuff for Epics, they become each other’s Ride or Dies in a place where everyone is fighting for their own lives.
2. Orihime Inoue
Orihime is one of the most popular characters in Bleach. What makes her so endearing in this passionate fandom, is her optimism. Her optimism is even more idealistic because of her background and what she has gone through in her life.
Her devotion to those around her and her ability to choose people over herself makes for an Emotional plot because nobody in her life has actually chosen her well-being over their self-interests except her Brother who she tragically loses before the story starts. Throughout the story, we see her struggling because of her financial situation.
The feature that pops out when it comes to her looks is her curvy figure which is very voluptuous and unique as she is a teenager. She wears her hair in bangs tucked behind her ears with hairpins, which she only removes to sleep. The Hairpins mean a lot to her as they were the last thing her brother gave to her.
3. Rias Gremory
Rias Gremory is the Perfect Fit for High School D*D. She has been animated as a very voluptuous and sexy woman. Her otherworldly thoughts add to this Harem Anime in the best way possible.
Though she has an authoritative persona with a lot of power, she is extremely personable because of the way she handles everyone. Even though many characters in the Series are her slaves, she doesn’t act that way, and actually tries to make friends with them. The reason she has come on Earth is that she wants to be known as Rias and not Rias from the Gremory Family.
Her most distinctive feature is her long, beautiful crimson hair which she also inherited from her father, that reaches down to her thighs with a single hair strand (known in Japan as ahoge) sticking out from the top.
4. Hinata Hyuga
Hinata Hyuga from her very first appearance in ‘Naruto’ had everyone’s whole heart. Life had pushed her around a lot, but she still did not let her purity and emotional receptiveness corroded away. Her love for everyone around her, who are close to her, is unshakable, no matter how tough the circumstances become. It is clear through the respect she shows to her family even after being unfairly treated by them.
Her relationship with Naruto in a few words is adorable and their relationship is built with what dreams are made of. She finds the love and care that she needed from her family, in Naruto, and never held back in her love for him. She always fights for him and her happiest moments are all with him.
Hinata is a slender girl of fair-complexion. As a Hyūga, her most distinguishing trait is the Byakugan, giving her featureless white eyes (depicted as a tinge of lavender in the anime).
5. Yoko Ritona
Yoko Ritona probably has the worst fate in ‘Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann’ after the Protagonist, Simon. She has everything that makes a woman perfect, from looks to the intellect, but still, she doesn’t get what she desires or loves the most. She is one of the ways the anime reflects the undertone of tragedy in the series. Her entire arc shows that if you are protecting your world and people, there is a very little possibility of your Heart being protected. There are chances of it is to be broken and for Yoko, it did twice.
Though her misfortunes were brutal she does not let it take away her light and passion for protecting people. She ends up as a teacher to prevent the next generation from making the same mistakes, which caused her and everyone around her so much pain. Her arc of a girl loving fights and combat to a woman who spreads the message of non-violence is inspirational, to say the least.
6. Inori Yuzuriha
Inori Yuzuriha is the most recognizable character of ‘Guilty Crown’. She has the capability of making people feel for her while she shows zero emotions. The fans were very intimately attached to her, like Shu, because of her unique characterization. A tinge of hurt is always associated with her mainly because from the moment of her inception it was clear that she will face her demise sooner or later. But just like Shu, we do not want to let her go.
Though not a human, at many points in the series she shows more humanity than the other characters, whether it is through her loyalty to Gai or undying affection for Shu. Her love for Yuzuriha is so epic that it transcends life and death because at its very core it is their souls that align with each other.
In the Series, she has a very slender figure and thin legs. Her usual fighting attire is a red leotard with the middle part mostly cut out, red-orange spoilers with flowers on the side, and high red gloves. She also wears a black short dress with white lining on the bottom and red ribbons on the bottom, which she wears when she is not fighting.
7. Ino Yamanaka
Undoubtedly, Naruto is filled with female characters of varying kinds. But from them, the most approachable seems to be Ino Yamanaka. Ino has every facet that a girl desires and goes through every insecurity that a young woman faces and later she comes over and above it. She starts off being the girl we all want to be standing up to bullies who hurt others, who judge appearances, and when she wants to lose weight she is not one bit embarrassed about it. It is the kind of aspirational energy that makes her so popular in the fandom even though she is not a part of the main team.
Her journey of love is also phenomenal. She pursues Sasuke relentlessly and doesn’t tolerate any insults towards her feelings. When the real thing in the form of Sai comes she doesn’t berate him and or sidelines him. She understands that her childish emotions have reached their expiration and Sai is her true love.
8. Kushina Uzumaki
Kushina Uzumaki is synonymous with the word ‘love’ in Naruto. Her entire arc revolves around this word. She saves herself from the anger of Nine-Tailed Fox through love and in her dying moments she fills Naruto with love.
Even though her story in the anime ended with death, in the end, nobody in the fandom thinks of her life as unfulfilled as Naruto lives as a spitting image of her. Her life with Minato made everything worth it for her. She was a woman of opinions and was never afraid to show it. She had the heart of a lion and was the first of many powerful female figures that ‘Naruto’ is known for.
Kushina was a woman who was well known for her beauty. She had a slender, but feminine build, fair skin, violet eyes, and the common Uzumaki red hair. It reached her ankles (waist in the anime) with shoulder-length strands that framed both sides of her face and a black clip that parts her hair to the left.
9. Saeko Busujima
Saeko Busujima is a fan favorite in the ‘High School Of The Dead’ fandom, mainly because of how she contains two opposites in herself. The reason she is so loved and respected in the outside world, as well as the fandom, is because she does what needs to be done and has a sort of dignity to herself which a lot of the characters in this anime severely lack. She has a set of very core and firm values that she doesn’t bend on, it is her values which in a way help her to keep her sanity here and also make her appear less humane.
Part of a very heated love triangle with Takashi and Rei, it is this robotic nature that makes many fans root for the other two at first glance. But as the story moves forward her innate emotions and cares come forward. As the series moves forward we see her giving her most to save the group and dealing with those repercussions. She comes out as a selfless soul who deserves the world.
10. Winry Rockbell
Winry Rockbell is a typical Tomboy who doesn’t have any knowledge of how beautiful she is, even though everyone around her does. She is emotional and possessive about her closed ones and is not afraid to show it.
Her characterization is important as she is one of the few female characters in pop culture that has been shown as an efficient engineer. At the same time, her emotional tenacity shows that she did not have to lose her femininity for it. She has the most enduring will. She is also extremely popular having been ranked 5th most popular ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’ character.
Winry is an attractive young woman with long, light blonde hair and blue eyes. She has a slender, girlish figure and is slightly taller than Edward for most of the story. She usually wears her hair in a long ponytail tied high in the back, while leaving a long lock of hair on either side of her face and her bangs falling casually from right to left across her forehead.
Sango is a very unique part of Inuyasha’s team. She is also very different from others in the way she handles herself. It is clear that her true loyalty is never towards the team but her brother, but it still hurts when she chooses to betray her team. But this betrayal acts as a catalyst and she becomes a true part of the team after receiving love and understanding from them even after going against her word.
Her relationship with Miroku throughout the series confuses her, his lecherous behavior towards everyone is something that she holds against her values. But she can’t help but feel a strong affinity towards him, reflecting an attitude of jealousy whenever he is with someone else.
Throughout the story, Sango is considered to be a very beautiful girl by many boys she encounters. She is so beautiful that many males attempted and failed to capture her just for her beauty.
12. Juvia Lockser
Juvia was an interesting addition to the Anime ‘Fairy Tail’. In the crowd of characters like Lucy Heartfilia and Erza Scarlet, she stands out because of how physically powerful and emotionally resilient she is. It is very rare to find both of these qualities in one person.
Her popularity in the fandom is skyrocketing which is a shock, considering that she was first introduced as a villain. Her backstory as a girl who is left alone by every single person she encountered in her life also helps her change from villain to heroine, as Fairy Tail is a place literally and figuratively created for such lost souls.
For any other character having an obsession as intense as Juvia has for Gray would not be a good look, but her feelings for him are portrayed in such a pure manner that it is really difficult to comprehend how Gray cannot fall for someone as sweet and genuine as Juvia.
Chiho Sasaki is a human character in an anime about demons and angels and surprisingly still holds her own. In the series, she grows from being a naive little girl with a crush to a mature woman helping the core team with the weird and dangerous circumstances that have developed.
Her maturity shows considerably well throughout the series when she can handle herself with poise against people who she considers as love rivals for the affections of Maou Sadao. She makes friends easily because of her amicable nature and can go above and beyond for them. Her heart breaks when she doesn’t get the same kind of treatment from them, as witnessed many times.
She is a very cute and petite teenager. She has short stature and sports a highly curvaceous figure, with large breasts, a fact which is noted by several people and envied by other girls.
Nami is one of the smartest people in the crew of Straw Hat Pirates. Initially dismissive of pirates she considers working in a Pirate ship as her worst nightmare. She still warms up to this existence and is very happy in her decision. Sometimes very irritated by the irrational behavior of her crew members, she knows everyone inside and out and understands their weaknesses and strengths better than anyone.
This is the reason why Luffy trusts her so much and considers her his equal, he really puts a lot of trust in her and she returns it with equal vigor. Having lost people close to her very young, her breaking point happens when the people she loves or cares about are in danger, which in her line of work is common.
Nami is a slim young woman of average height with orange hair and brown eyes. Most people consider her to be very attractive or even beautiful. She has a black tattoo (blue in the anime) on her left shoulder, which represents mikan, and pinwheels (a homage to Bell-mère, Nojiko, and Genzo, respectively), where she used to have a tattoo for being a member of Arlong’s crew.
Rangiku Matsumoto is someone very comfortable with her sexuality. She is proud of her appearance and doesn’t shy away from flaunting it. She actually focuses on all the conversations and brings them in the discussions whenever nobody notices her. Even though she is someone with overt sexuality she doesn’t take offense to modesty as evident from her closeness with Hitsugaya.
Rangiku has long and wavy blond hair, blue eyes, full lips, and a beauty mark located under the right side of her mouth. She is well known for her curvaceous figure; of which her most distinctive trait is her very large breasts.
She dresses in the garb typical of Shinigami, though she lets her robes hang loose for her ample bosom to be revealed. She wears a thin golden necklace tucked between her cleavage and a long pink scarf over her shoulders.
Even though cheerful, she has had a bad past and things were horrible for her. Until Gin saved her, her future looked bleak so much so that she was starving on the street. The fact that she is still sensitive to everyone’s feelings even after that shows how much inner beauty in addition to her outside elegance she contains.
Rukia Kuchiki is a fictional character in the Anime series Bleach. She is a soul reaper and is in charge of slaying demons called Hollow. She is from the past and therefore has slight trouble fitting in with the modern situation, but her great acting abilities always persevere through these awkward circumstances.
But even if it is the future her personality and values remain the same- thus her hatred for preferential treatment. She does not want to be treated differently because of her adopted nobility, a value she gains a lot of appreciation for.
She strives to be independent and loyal, mostly because her sister Hisana Kuchiki never showed her that. She left her stranded in an unknown world which severely impacted her.
Short and petite, Rukia has light skin and purple eyes. Her hair is black, with several strands of hair always hanging between her eyes. Byakuya has stated she strongly resembles her sister, Hisana Kuchiki.
C.C has been a very popular character in the Anime culture. In the 29th Anime Grand Prix, she was awarded 3rd place. She was chosen as the most popular female character of 2007 and 2008 at Animage magazine’s annual Anime Grand Prix.
The interest that everyone has in her is because of her unique characterization. She has lived for many eras, but being in this humane world has left her in the most inhumane and emotionless state possible. She has no idea what words like care, love or genuine mean. At one point she also states that she has lost all understanding of who loves her or who hates her.
Her ability to give anyone the power of Geass has landed her in trouble a multitude of times throughout her entire life. She has been bludgeoned and tortured. The whole series kickstarts because she wants this suffering to stop by dying.
C.C. is a girl with long, almost waist-length light green hair and golden eyes. She is of average height, being slightly shorter than Kallen. She has a scar under her left breast that resembles a Geass sigil.
18. Seras Victoria
Apart from Integra and Alucard, if there is a character that really moves the Hellsing fandom it is Seras Victoria. There is a certain closeness you will feel to her that you might not to anyone else in the Anime. Her struggle with Vampirism and humanity makes for a compelling storyline. Her trust in Alucard makes for a genuine bond.
The fact that she shows so much loyalty and love towards Alucard is in itself very confusing considering her tragic background. She had both her parents killed in front of her eyes brutally, therefore the fact that she can still open up herself to Alucard shows how special he is to her.
Seras is initially an attractive young woman with blonde hair cut into a flare cut and blue eyes. She had a fairly broad-shouldered torso, yet maintained a very voluptuous and buxom figure, which was further accentuated by the fact that she is considerably shorter than virtually all of her allies. Before becoming a fully-fledged vampire, she usually wore a yellow Hellsing uniform with a matching mini skirt, long white stockings, ankle fold brown boots, and brown gloves. Occasionally, her eyes assumed a red hue in moments of extreme rage or vampiric bloodlust.
Revy is probably the most interesting and complicated of the bunch. She is not emotionally open and there could actually be arguments made for the fact that she is an overall bad human being. But it is her downfalls that make her an intriguing character in Black Lagoon.
She has no mercy and displays sadistic tendencies and does it so brashly without displaying an ounce of disappointment or guilt. It is very rare to find women like that in Pop culture, such women are so often written off as the villains, but she is a protagonist here.
Revy is a Chinese-American woman of approximately moderate height in her mid to late twenties. She has amber-brown eyes, a slightly tan complexion, and typically keeps her burgundy-colored (brown in the manga) hair in a loose ponytail, with rather large bangs falling onto her forehead.
Despite her slender build, Revy keeps up her physique, sporting a slightly muscular build, which she doesn’t conceal in the least. On her right upper arm, Revy has a tribal tattoo, reaching all the way up to her neck.
Kagome Higurashi is the Heroine of the Anime and Manga series, Inuyasha. Though very simple in her outlook and character, it is this simplicity that makes her endearing. It is her arrival that shakes everything and it is a pattern that we notice throughout the series, that she has a sort of magnetic charm that attracts everyone towards her, inadvertently.
Her relationship with Inuyasha is the heart of the series. Everyone waits with bated breaths that they both choose each other, and when they finally do it is nothing short of epic.
Kagome has long black hair that falls past her shoulders—in the manga, it started out as rather wavy but progressed to a far straighter and spikier look at the end, while it has always been straight in the anime. The manga and anime also present variations on her eyes: like Kikyo, she has brown eyes in the anime, but they are blue or grey in the manga. She and Kikyo also share a far greater resemblance in the manga than they do the anime.
Bulma sometimes even rivals Goku when it comes to being a fan favorite. And the show primarily focuses on him. This shows how amazing she really is. She does not have the fighting capabilities like many around her but has her intellect that more than makes up for it. She is very opinionated and is not afraid to show it.
But in the end, he is extremely loyal. The most surprising thing about her arc was definitely the revelation that she ended up with Vegeta. But after a while, they seemed to be a perfect match. Nobody could match the fierceness of Vegeta better than Bulma. The fans warmed up to them so much that now they are one of the most popular ships in the fandom.
In her initial appearance, Bulma had her hair in a braided ponytail with a red ribbon and wore a very short pink dress with her name on it with blue sneakers and purple socks. Due to wetting her panties when being captured by a pterodactyl, her clothes are quickly changed to a pair of boots, gray pants and a blue jacket with a white tank top underneath with her hair unchanged.
When she was staying the night in her Capsule House she wore a pink nightgown with one side of her hair in a pigtail and added a pair of pink socks and blue sneakers to it when she was forced to take Turtle to the beach. After coming back from the beach, Bulma is briefly seen in a white shirt and pants with brown shoes and gloves when attempting to ride Goku’s Flying Nimbus.
Ryoko Matoi is the protagonist of Kill La Kill. She is an Emily Thorne but much more personable and root worthy. Even though she is dark and violent, in a series full of killers she is the one you want to see succeed.
This desire gets more fired up because of her motivations and history. She never has any real connection with her Father and the moment is about to go live with him, he is tragically taken away from her in front of her eyes. And as she understands more about her history, he was the only one who cared for her, saving her from imminent death when she was an infant. It is the loss of this figure in her life that motivates her to come to Honnouji Academy.
Ryūko is a seventeen-year-old girl of medium height and mid-length black hair with a single left-swept red highlight on her bangs. Her blue eyes have peculiar gear-shaped pupils with eight grooves around the edges.
Her outfit coming into the series is a simple white shirt with a red ribbon tie, a black miniskirt, white sneakers, and a black & white jacket with rolled-up sleeves. During her childhood, she wore a red collared shirt with a white skirt and white shoes.
Erza Knightwalker is a character from the Anime Series Fairy Tail. Over the course of the series, she has probably proved herself as the strongest wizard in the world. She stands as a true representative of female strength in this world of Fairy Tail that is dominated by men. Her inner strength and fear of losing people come because of the losses she has suffered in the past. That’s why even after Jellal hurts her so badly, she wasn’t able to let him fend for himself.
Erza is a young woman with long, scarlet hair and brown eyes. She lost her right eye as a child and now has an artificial one which was created by Porlyusica. She has a slender, voluptuous figure that Lucy Heartfilia described as “amazing.” Her most common attire consists of a custom-made armor by Heart Kreuz smiths, a blue skirt, black boots, and diamond-shaped silver earrings. Her Fairy Tail stamp is blue and is located in the middle of her left upper arm. Erza’s specialty in Requip Magic allows her to re-equip not only armors but different outfits as well, enabling her to change her attire at any given time.
24. Mirajane Strauss
At first glance, Mirajane Straus looks like the typical Queen Bee. In a few words, she is beautiful, sexy and hot, but as the series progresses she proves herself to be much more than that. She is quite frankly the emotional backbone of Fairy Tail.
In a guild where people are ready to go to fight at the drop of a pin, she is the only one looking for a more peaceful solution. As is the case with all the characters of Fairy Tail, she also had an arc revealing her back story and showed the reason why she preaches for nonviolence.
Her transformation from a Girl who wanted to fight at every given chance to a woman mature enough to know when arms are not required has given her idealistic respect in the fandom. Mirajane is a slim young woman of below-average height. She has long, white hair which curls slightly at the ends, with two bangs framing her face and reaching down to her chest; her hairstyle’s most distinctive trait is a short, upward ponytail obtained by gathering and tying the hair covering her forehead.
Due to her always adopting such fashion, her hair seems to have adapted to it, with the hair on her forehead remaining pointed upwards even when not tied. She has large blue eyes and a curvy, voluptuous body, with large breasts. Her white Fairy Tail Stamp is located on her left thigh. Mirajane is widely known for her beauty, being Fairy Tail’s drawing card and having posed many times for the Sorcerer Magazine.
25. Akeno Himejima
Akeno Himejuima is a Female protagonist of the popular Anime, High School D*D. She is a very well-liked character in the fandom even though she is a direct opponent of Ias Gremory for Issei’s affection.
Even though she is best friends with Rias, the series puts them in crossroads with each other in regards to Issei. But what makes her different and adorable to the fans is that even in such awkward circumstances she doesn’t let her feeling for Issei overshadow her friendship with Rias. She respects her feelings which Rias on many occasions doesn’t.
Akeno is a beautiful young woman with a voluptuous figure, very long black hair and violet eyes. Her hair is usually tied in a long ponytail, reaching all the way down to her legs with two strands sticking out from the top and sloping backward, with an orange ribbon keeping it in place.
Tsunade has generated a ton of interest since she debuted in Naruto because she was quite literally, unlike any other characters. Fans of Naruto know that action is what most of the characters in this anime believe in. But she wants to escape it. She wants nothing to do with it.
This feeling stems from all the losses these wars and fights have given her. She lost her Grandfather, brother and close friends to all of this. Every Time she opens up herself to someone, they meet their demise leaving her all alone.
It is actually a huge shame that she doesn’t want to be more involved because her strength is unimaginable. Tsunade can summon slugs into battle, up to and including Kaiju-sized monsters. This summoning ability is predicated on Tsunade having established a blood-contract with all slug species. Jiraiya and Orochimaru can also summon toads and snakes (respectively), and Orochimaru is also capable of transforming into a snake.
Tsunade is a fair-skinned woman with brown eyes and straight blonde hair that parts above her forehead. Her hair has shoulder-length bangs that frame her face and the rest reaches her lower back. While as a child through her young-adult years she wore her hair in a high ponytail, she later kept it tied in two loose ponytails.
27. Lucy Heartfilia
Lucy Heart by a lot of people is characterized as the female lead of Fairy Tail. And by many standards she is. It is through her eyes that we see this world. We are introduced to Fairy Tail because of her aims and aspirations.
Lucy though sometimes mean is the one who brings relativity to this very weird Guild. She is the voice of reason and quite honestly an object of much love and respect. Even Natsu, the fiery Dragon listens to her. When it comes to her and Natsu the fans have some intense opinions. It is a very solid friendship and one which should turn to a coupling. Fans lost their temper when in the last episode he didn’t confess but said that they will always stay together. One heck of a Cliffhanger.
Lucy has brown eyes and shoulder-length blonde hair that is usually tied by ribbons in a variety of colors in a small ponytail to the right side of her head with the rest of the hair loose. However, in the year X791, she appears to keep her hair up more often in pigtails. She is buxom and has a curvaceous body. In X792, her hair is considerably longer, and she keeps it all in a side ponytail.
28. Rin Tohsaka
Of all the characters in Fate/ Stay Night, Rin is definitely the most ambitious and focussed. She wants the Holy Grail at any cost because of her family’s honor and her dignity. She is quite reserved and doesn’t want anyone prying in her life, which is why she sort of maintains a facade in the School.
Her relationship with Shirou is beyond fascinating and has captured hearts all over. At first dismissive of him, it is slowly revealed how much she trusts him and actually might be in love with him. Their slow-burn kind of relationship made their union even more gratifying.
Rin is a young woman with aqua eyes and long wavy black hair in a two-side-up hairstyle, which consists of part of her being made into twin-tails tied with black ribbons, while the majority hangs loose. During school, she wears the standard Homurahara uniform, which she sometimes accompanies with a long red coat. Her casual clothing consists of a red turtleneck, a black skirt and long black socks under brown leather flats.
29. Touka Kirishima
Touka Kirishima, throughout her arc in Tokyo Ghoul has legitimately made us cry. Her struggle with being a Ghoul and not being able to get genuine human emotions were quite honestly heartwarming.
Touka’s personality is initially defined by her duality between rage and kindness, with her character arc centered on that rage fading as well as her kindness coming to the fore. She is inherently kind, but this was suppressed due to her losing her father and thus having to survive in the ghoul world from an early age, which required her to be ruthless.
As Shuu Tsukiyama notes, she had previously looked more dangerous and cold but has somewhat softened up because of her human life, and continued to do so due to Ken Kaneki’s influence, who allowed her to be the kind person she is deep down.
Touka is a slender and attractive teenage girl with bob-length black hair (purple in the anime) that has long bangs that reach her chin covering the right side of her face and blue eyes. She appears to be a cute, normal girl that one would not suspect to be a ghoul.
30. Levy Mcgarden
It is so weird to even imagine that Levy McGarden was not even supposed to be a permanent character in Fairy Tail. Her spirit forms such an important part of this eponymous Guild. Her sympathy and drive are what inspires all the other members.
Her friendship with Lucy is very touching, even though Lucy and Natsu’s relationship takes a lot of space, the simplicity of their relationship has its own charm. Though people consider her shyness to be a weakness, she has shown an umpteen amount of strength at numerous points.
Her relationship with Gajeel started off so unexpectedly with him actually being a cause of hurt to her in their first encounter. But that shows how charming her innocence is, that she can turn a person so averse to her into someone who cares about her so passionately.
Levy is a rather young, petite teenage girl of a slender build who stands at a rather below-average height for her age. Her shoulder-length blue hair, which has eyebrow-length bangs, is normally tied up with a colorful bandana around her head.
31. Yoruichi Shihouin
Yoruichi is an interesting addition to Bleach. She is different from others in the way she balances her intensity and humor. She is very aggressive and direct when the situation demands it but is not scared to turn up the laughs even at the expense of her sexuality.
She regularly scares people by converting from her feline form in front of them just to see their reactions to her naked body.
Even though a part of the nobility she hates being associated with it. She constantly asks people to call her by her own name and not add honorifics.
Yoruichi Shihōin is a slender and well-endowed woman of average height. She has dark skin, golden irises, and black hair. Her hair is waist-length and kept in a ponytail with chin-length bangs framing the sides of her face.
Her standard attire consists of a black, backless, sleeveless undershirt, an orange over-shirt with two white straps on each shoulder, a large beige sash around her waist, and black stretch pants with a pair of lightweight brown shoes, which allow for stealth and easy use of Shunpo.
32. Shiina Mashiro
If Shiina Mashiro could be described in a few words it would be eccentric. This female lead of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo is quite unlike everything we have ever seen before. She is sweet but just so naive and even careless. She has no care in the world. She is weirdly above all, whether it is her appearance or even her grades.
Her relationship with Sorata is so cute and more importantly supportive. She wants the best for Soarata and he is the only one she actually shows any sort of emotions towards. She cares for him so much that she is willing to let him go for his own benefit.
It has been noted many times in the series that she is very beautiful and she also has a very slim physique. She has pale skin accompanied by red eyes and long pale blonde hair that reaches her waist. She is often seen in the school uniform (which consists of a white collared short-sleeve shirt, red tie, a sky blue vest, light magenta pleated skirt with a black stripe hem, white knee-high socks, and brown dress shoes), if not, in casual clothes.
33. Taiga Aisaka
Taiga Aisaka is a Protagonist of the Anime and Manga series Toradora. She is a layered character. Though rude, brash and snappish from outside, she is sweet from inside. She is loyal and extremely devoted and would fight tooth and nails for her loved ones.
The reason she is so withdrawn is because of one reason and that is her family. Her family chose everyone and everything over her and therefore, she now does not want to give anyone the opportunity to have that much authority over her that they can eventually hurt her.
Even though Taiga is a teenager, her very short height makes her look like a younger child. Ami frequently teases her about this. Taiga has long, curly light brown hair (inherited from her mother) that falls past her waist in waves, with large, dark amber eyes that are inherited from her father. She is “flat-chested” and is very ashamed about it, but often she makes up for this fact by her typically constant glare or menacing words.
34. Ayuzawa Misaki
Ayuzawa Misaki in every feature is a true heroine. If you go by her deeds, actions or motivations she always acts as an ideal, she is perfect. There is nothing that she does which is out of place, except for her secret life as a maid the motivations behind which are also pure.
She is fair and loyal. She can never hurt anyone and would do anything to make someone feel good or comfortable. It is this attitude of hers that makes fans root for Misaki’s happiness. Misaki is the main female character of Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama!
Misaki is a young girl with an average height and figure. She has a light, brownish amber eyes with a golden tint and black shoulder-length hair. She usually puts it in a ponytail while exercising. Physically she is actually considered quite beautiful underneath her tough exterior.
