The Top Ten

Hinata Hyuuga (Naruto)
People will argue that if anyone from Naruto should be #1 then it should be Sakura because her character is the most realistic since she makes mistakes and grows. If you are a fan that has read until the latest Shippuden manga chapter, then you know this is far from true. Sakura Haruno does not deserve this spot because she in fact does not change at all. Whenever it is time for her to experience a story arc it's exactly the same, she wants to stop playing the support role and fight in the front lines with her friends. For the time being she does just that, but afterwards it's nothing changed and she's right back where she started. ((spoiler alert) in the middle of the war against Obito and Madara she obtains the first hokage's ultimate regeneration jutsu, allowing her to recover from any injury, she fights a couple monsters and then what does she do? She goes back to aid the wounded as Naruto and Sasuke create an awesome collaborative jutsu to attack and destroy the ten tails directly. She's been storing chacra since she started training with Tsunade for that very moment, and then she barely uses it. ) But that's enough about Ms. Haruno. Hinata is the best because she actually changes. At first Naruto was her inspiration. Because of her family's ways she believed that she wasn't destined for greatness and that she wouldn't amount to much of anything. She is shy because she thinks that nobody will think much of her, that she's insignificant. Naruto's brave and persistent words and actions inspire her. She gains confidence from him and slowly realizes her her love for him. Plus she actually becomes more active in the front line of battle. She masters techniques that her child prodigy of a brother could not. Her character goes through all these changes but she is still too shy to openly declare her love for Naruto and that is what makes her Hinata Hyuuga. that's what makes her the best female anime character.
Her character is awesome, she is loyal to her love and family. She try her best and is very strong and brave in her own way. Her story plot line is also very complex, and plus even though she is shy Hinata is really beautiful from both inside and outside.
I actually liked the One Piece but Naruto, Hinata really adorable and pretty, she's even better than Sakura. Very good if the wife Hinata Naruto because Hinata the only women who like Naruto and Sasuke do not like the most popular among women
[Newest]Though both were badly injured, who came to save Naruto from Pain and get him into eight tail mode? Case closed.

2Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)
She is strong, passionate and beautiful. Not to mention she kicks ass.
She is brave beautiful and bad ass <3
! I LOVE HER SO MUCHH! She's strong, she's brave, she's kind, she's sweett! Above all, she's the ONLY ONE who always by Ichigo"s side and support him very much. Go Ichiruki!

3Sakura Haruno (Naruto)
Beautiful, strong, fierce and independent young women. In the world of ninjas washed out of their emotions, packed in superpowers/ trained by their clans since birth, she's definitely the most humanized character. She falls in love with a complete douchebag, who ends up trying to kill her (twice! ), cries, lies, makes mistakes, because, seriously, who doesn't?! She's no Mary-Sue. She grows up fast, trains hard and supports her best friend the most. Yes, she smacks him down when he's being an ass or pervert, but remember, that she's also the only one of his friends to actually see him turn into a killing machine and instead of being scared for herself, she runs towards him, risking herself, to help him out and comfort him. And did I mention that she helps kick ass of one of the biggest villains of the story, takes a giant centipede down with a single hit and is the one to discover the secret of the enemy's army, which kinda saves the lives of thousands people? She's a very skilled fighter and healer, is caring, loyal, brave, defiant, has confidence issues and is easy to anger. She doesn't take s*** from guys and puts them in their place, when they deserve it. She's a legit badass and a great inspiration for young women.
Are you serious? Sakura? She is useless most of the time... She is only here because Naruto is highly overrated and mainstream. Put up a more worthy female anime character... -_-
I like it how she changed from a weak kunoichi to a totally kick ass woman like tsunade
[Newest]Sakura all the way...

4Winry Rockbell (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Without Winry, Ed and Al wouldn't have been able to reach their goal. She's a badass, strong character who has been through a lot, but still moves forward. As someone else had said, "Yes, she cries, but everybody does." Winry should be higher on the list.
I love her personality. She definitely helped Ed and Al remain sane most of the time.
Badassness packed in a non-fighter. For a female lead character, she doesn't really come out as useless or weak. Yes, she cries, but everybody does.

5Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)
She is the best anime/manga girl EVER! She's beautiful, sexy, smart and strong. She is by far the greatest swordswoman ever. When she's fighting, it makes her looks like fairy dancing in the battle field. The fairy that suppose to have already fallen to earth.. she is Titania.

Talks about her past. She have the saddest past in Fairy Tail (from me). Her childhood crush use her as sacrifice to revive some emo psychopath mage. Even thought what Jellal did to he, she forgave him. And even during her fight with him, she still hopes that she can knock some sense and still can bring Jellal that she knows back.

Not just some pretty face. She also have a pretty heart. She's like an elder sister towards Natsu and Gray and a loving but strict mother towards the rest of Fairy Tail Guild. By far, she is the prettiest Fairy Tail girl ever.. I love her, and I don't know how many time I cry whenever her past came. Such a strong girl.. not just psychically, but also emotionally.
The strongest female in the Fairy Tail guild. Also known as queen of the fairies for her fast ability to adapt into any situation during a battle.
Her love story my most FAVORITE ship! Especially when Jellal was being taken away by Lahar :'( that was sad. Epic beast in Pandemonium. Quick equipping speed and no time put to waste. Everything about her is just perfect. My favorite female character forever and always

6Riza Hawkeye (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Riza is totally badass. A lieutenant in the military, and not called the Hawk's Eye for nothing! She will shoot you down with deadly accuracy if you lay a hand on those she cares about. May seem to have a cold exterior but actually has a very warm and caring heart.
Yes. She is strong, and she's real. She's not just "sexy" like some of the others, she's real and has emotions. She's not useless like Sakura, and she has goals and dreams, plus she can fight. She's definitely the best.
Beautiful, strong, and a totally badass sniper

7Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon)
I love usagi! I do admit she was a bit of a cry baby in the earlier season but I still live her. in the later seasons she becomes much stronger and isn't as much as a crybaby.
I will always love sailor moon
At the first glance, she maybe seems to be crybaby, clumsy, naive, scatterbrained, lazy, selfish, immature, and overeating. But actually Usagi is a really strong, determined, kind-hearted, and brave heroine who can be pretty serious when she is fighting.
My childhood hero and really is a inspiring "idiot" that we all know and love!
[Newest]My nickname at school is Usagi/Sailor Moon! 😊

8Kagome Higurashi (Inuyasha)
Kagome is so sweet and cute. I think she is the best looking manga girl.
I think she should be frost because no matter what happened she was always there when koga or inuyasha got hurt even thou she got kiddnapped by iota when his arm got hurt she still stopped inuyasha from hurting him.
Kagome is a kind-hearted and a sweet girl. I Love her the most in Inuyasha.
[Newest]Kagome is the obvious choice. She's very cute and nice to everyone

9Nami (One Piece)
Nami is the hottest!

10Bulma (DragonBall Z)
Bulma is perfect there is no flaw in her

The Contenders

11Harhui (Ouran High Host Club)

12Saeko Busujima (High School of the Dead)
She's one of the most kick-ass characters of all time! Love her, her sword and her wonderful techniques

13Maka Albarn (Soul Eater)
Because, she's simly awesome, and to all of you that don't like Maka I have just 2 words to say MAKA CHOP :P laugh out loud


She is relly adorable.

14Ran Mouri (Case Closed)
She's the most perfect girl that I've ever met! She's pretty, cute, kind-hearted, loyal, and strong. Hell, she has many many talents! Hope she end up with shinchi in the end
Beautiful, Bold, Cute, Sweet, Pretty will be less to describe Ran. She is perfect for Shinichi. Love Her!
I love her, she has a beautiful personality. She's waiting Shinichi after all this time and she loves him. Ran always helps other in many situations. ShinRan is the best couple ever, after all she's one character from Detective Conan

15C.C. (Code Geass)

16Ayano (Stigma of the Wind)
Some of you would say shes obnoxious I think shes awesome shes funny shes beautiful shes strong and shes interesting
Ayano is awesome she doesn't always notice the power she possess but when she does it's pretty badass!

17Hinagiku Katsura (Hayate the Combat Butler)
She is so cute and sexy!.She is the... BEST!
This character rules Hayate no Gotoku! She is just adorable.

18Nagisa Furukawa (Clannad)
Nagisa is 27? Either no one here has seen Clannad or you all have absolutely no soul. She's everything you could want in a girl. Love, compasion, attractiveness, forgiving, cheerful, etc. Plus the relationship between her and Tomoya really makes the show what it is. Hands down one of the best
I totally agree with you. She was actually one of those girls you actually want no matter how you are.

19Nia Teppelin (Gurren Lagann)

20Nico Robin (One Piece)
A girl with a terrible past, and A RUTHLESS KILLER BRAH!

21Revi (Black Lagoon)

22Lucy (Elfen Lied)
No contest, the rest don't even compare with Lucy.

23Keiko Yukimura (Yu Yu Hakusho)

24Konata Izumi (Lucky Star)
Why is she ranked 71 she's amazing! She's the epitome of every girl who likes manga and anime; she's relatable. She's also funny, smart and cooks well and she's just a well rounded character! Yeah she doesn't kick ass like some of the other characters on this list but you can tell if given the chance that she totally would!
Shes such an otaku, but shes so amazing!

25Android 18 (Dragon Ball Z)
She is under appreciated and awesome how many people can say the kicked vegetas ass and lived. She is beautiful and strong enough to blow up planets. But be careful or she will con you out of your cash!

26Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid)

27Faye Valentine (Cowboy Bebop)

28Enma Ai (Jigoku Shoujo)

29Yoruichi Shihōin (Bleach)
By far the most bad ass female anime character, and she's hella gorgeous.

30Ayuzawa Misaki (Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama)

31Edward (Cowboy Bebop)

32Makina (Deadman Wonderland)

33Sango (InuYasha)
She is a very sad person..but deep inside her she is strong and would all do for her friends and his little brother. And she is so beatifuel! I just love her

34Temari (Naruto)
She definitely deserves a place on this list. Great character with good skills.

35Mitsuko Souma (Battle Royale)
Cold-blooded badass. God how I love her!

36Orihime Inoue (Bleach)

wants to help her friends.

37Tsubaki Nakatsukasa (Soul Eater)

38Kamiya Kaoru (Rurouni Kenshin)

39Asuka Langley Soryu (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Shes awesome and realistic

40Moka Akashiya (Rosario + Vampire)
She's sweet, She's beautiful and not to mention inner Moka kicks serious ass.
Moka should be top ten.

41Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket)
Nice always helpful and sweet. She thinks about others and is very thoughtful!

42Mion Sonozaki (Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni)
A little bit crazy yet tomboyish. Mion Sonozaki is a nice and scary addition to the Higurashi-series.

43Konan (Naruto)
A lady with class, loyal and loving to her friends, a good person, a creator of origami, and an Akatsuki member.
She's probably one of the strongest girls in Naruto, because even though she didn't really fight much she managed to nearly kill Tobi, and he's has the mangekyou sharingan and everything!
Yeah she's just really awesome!


This badass character definitely deserves a place on this list. Enough said.

44Kinomoto Sakura (Cardcaptor Sakura)
Sakura is super sweet and will make you fall in love with her. Shes my favorite anime character and her anime is my favorite. She wonderful and nice.
She along with Syaoran and Tomoyo are my personal favorites, she and Syaoran make a good couple too.
Even though she is naive and oblivious, but she still able to be a good cardcaptor eventually.

45Shana (Shakugan no Shana)

46Nana (Elfen Lied)
She's just so sweet and lovely.

47Hungary (Hetalia)
She is pretty, sisterly, and loyal, thought she kicks army-ass.
She is definitely the most manly character in the series!

48Kaname Chidori (Full Metal Panic)

49Yuno Gasai (Future Diary)
Yuno Gasai must be the coolest yandere girl all the time

50Risa Koizumi (Lovely Complex)
I love her because she truly cannot bring herself to give up on the one she loves. She always manages to fight through everything that has happened to her, and her strong will has managed to pay off, after her many tries. I love Risa Koizumi!
Just had to mention her. The best and most original shoujo heroine I know.

51Yuki Nagato (Haruhi Suzumiya)

52Haruhi Suzumiya (Haruhi Suzumiya)

53Yoko Littner (Tengen Toppa Gurren-Laggan)
Yoko is "The Original Bad Ass" (with a capital "T"), maybe she wasnt the first strong female character, but she let everyone know that she was a WOMAN you don't want to mess with! Shes smart, shes wise, she plays her cards close to her chest, but shes not afraid to open up to her friends, and she deals with heartbreak like a "G", even when she has to deal with losing someone she loves, and she has a chance to get revenge, she takes the higher road. Yoko is the "Ride-Or-Die" girl that is #1 on any mans list of qualities to look for in a future wife! Yoko is my #1.

54Mikasa Ackerman (Shingeki no Kyojin)
She is beautiful and badass at the same time. She has a tragic past, but she doesn't let it bring her down. And she will do whatever it takes to keep her comrades safe. She's my favorite character.
She cares about others also, not just Eren. She has got so much character development during the series, which makes her even more lovable.

55May (Pokemon)
She is such a cool character
She is one of my favorite anime girls..
She is strong too!

56Asuna (Sword Art Online)
My favorite women characters in Manga or Anime are always the badass chick who can hold their own. Although at time it seems that she has gone all Bella (from twilight), she is totally badass. Also, as for the second season of SAO, she hasn't had much screen time and seems less badass and more Bella. I wish that she would go with Kirito to the gun game thing.
She can cook, kick ass, and is smart. What's not to like about her?
Definitely badass and she's pretty!

57Rias Gremory (High School DxD)
The beautiful crimson haired princess is the best manga anime girl!
Rias is the best anime girl out there!

60Shirley Fenette (Code Geass)

65Ino Yamanaka (Naruto)

66Tenten (Naruto)

67Sayaka Miki (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)

68Belldandy (Ah My Goddess!)
Ah My Belldandy! She's just the perfect cutest girl any guy in the world would want, her personality and loyalty for her love, her beautiful voice that catches every heart, she knows how to cook, her physical stature is just everyone's type and she's the most caring person you can ever see.
What can I say? Belldandy is just perfect!

69Toujou Aya (Strawberry 100%)

70Sakura Mikan (Gakuen Alice)
I think she is quite likeable, even though I find to be kind of annoying for a few times.

83Snow (Mar)

84Kanade Tachibana (Angel Beats)
