Top 10 Best Manga/Anime Girls of All Time

The Top TenXW

1Hinata 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 ...more

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.

Hinata is the best. She was willing to sacrifice her life for Naruto!

To the ones who likes Hinata but doesn't like Sakura, please stop comparing! They are just two different person who represents two different things! Why do people have to say something bad about Sakura when ever they are complimenting Hinata? I just don't get it!

They are both strong and lovable characters and we can actually learn a lot from them.

Though both were badly injured, who came to save Naruto from Pain and get him into eight tail mode? Case closed.

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 ...more

You say she is most realistic. At least Hinata is really gentle and nice. I mean, Sakura can have nice and thoughtful thoughts but she hits Naruto so much. How many times did he save her? Plus, she hits him even when he wasn't acting perverted. Naruto saved the village and Sakura hit him.

Did you know that Sakura did nothing for more than 200 episodes? Also, Naruto saves her life like ten billion times and she hits him. In fact, Sakura hit him more than 50 times. Poor Naruto-kun

She is the world best

4Nami (One Piece)

Nami has an awesome story and she's so sweet at heart please vote for her. People say she is annoying but she has went through a lot!

She's hot, she's funny, she's nice, and she's intelligent. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Her cleverness and short temper are funny but she's also kind hearted and innocent. Well... Not that innocent. and her obsession with cash is just great haha

She is so nice and hot.

5Kagome Higurashi (Inuyasha)

Kagome is a kind-hearted and a sweet girl. I Love her the most in Inuyasha.

Kagome is so sweet and cute. I think she is the best looking manga girl.

Kagome is the obvious choice. She's very cute and nice to everyone

6Erza 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

Because she's Erza

7Bulma (DragonBall Z)

She's arguably the most intelligent genius in all anime / manga.

Bulma is the hottest ever and she has a great personality she is perfect

Bulma is perfect there is no flaw in her

Bulma is the best.

8Winry 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.

9Usagi 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.

There's more to Usagi than meets the eye... A combination of goofiness and ethereal grace, she's a mystery, she's one of a kind and by far the most inspiring anime heroine of all time...

My childhood hero and really is a inspiring "idiot" that we all know and love!

10Riza 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

I thought she was a guy at first. Strong, badass and good at guns.

The Newcomers

?Yona (Akatsuki No Yona)

To be honest I was really surprised when I did not find here on the list even though she totally deserve to be ranked as number 1 especially after the huge transition that she have been through. she transformed from being a spoiled, weak,naive, careless, selfish, knows nothing princess to a serious, strong, vigilant, caring, selfless, brave, hard working, wise, fearless, warm,sweet, kind, helpful, reliable,responsible,cute and a very beautiful girl who deserved the tittle of the princess. she is always trying her best for the sake her kingdom, friends and the person she loves ( the people who matters to her ) this is princess yona. Now do you still think that she dose not deserve to be ranked as the best anime heroin?

The Contenders

11Ran Mouri (Case Closed)

Although Ran can be a bit tsundere, she is loyal, loving and always puts everybody before her, whether it be Shinichi, Conan, the shonen tantei dan, or strangers. The fact that Ran waits ten years (in the ova 09) should put her at the top of the list, despite always complaining about Shinichi coming back and the pain she feels having to wait for him, and also having to wonder if Shinichi actually will come back for her. Some people may say that Ran is quite stereotypical or that she is a cliche anime character, but is one of the characters who has shaped female anime characters throughout the twenty years the anime/manga has been going on.

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!

13C.C. (Code Geass)

From what I've seen in Code Geass, CC definitely deserves a good spot in this list, She is beautiful, smart, and cool.
She has her own flaws which makes her more irresistible. I'm glad she isn't very low on this list. Though I do wish she would earn a higher spot.

Plus, Code Geass is a good anime I have to say!

14Ayano (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!

15Nia Teppelin (Gurren Lagann)V1 Comment
16Nagisa 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.

That one vote makes the difference between 2...
This vote brought it from 17 to 15 :3
I really loved all the characters for Clannad but Nagisa had one of the most touching scenes I've ever scene...

17Saeko 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

The best swordswoman (sorry Ezra), best hair, most courageous, sexiest Manga woman-yet she still lets you see she's also a scared and vulnerable teen also..

18Konata 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!
