Top 10 Best Manga/Anime Girls of All Time

The Top Ten

1 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 ...more

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.

Hinata is what you call a developing character. Orhime, Sakura, Misa Misa, and all annoying characters. She shows her love to the main character through actions not words. She tries her best to improve and fights for what she believes in. SHE IS THE BEST! Wake up!

Best waifu!

2 Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach) Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)

She is strong, passionate and beautiful. Not to mention she kicks ass.

She is brave beautiful and bad ass

She is far more beautiful than hinata plus this site sucks they always put hinata over every anime girl who is better than her

She is the best.Brave, strong, funny.I can't understand why she isn't number 1 already?

3 Bulma (DragonBall Z) Bulma (DragonBall Z) Bulma is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball manga series created by Akira Toriyama. Bulma is the most significant female character in the series.

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

Bulma is really dominating

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

Like Goku is an icon of male anime characters, Bulma is the iconic anime girl. And she doesn't even need to be a fighter, she's still relevant and is one of the most important characters in Dragon Ball Z. She's so smart and adventurous! Not to mention can stand on herself. - Goku02

4 Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail) Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail) Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail . Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her friends' calls that they want ...read more.

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.

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

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.

Erza is one of the most AMAZING and POWERFUL females in anime. I'm surprised she's not at number one. She's beautiful, strong, kind, a leader and so much more.

5 Nami (One Piece) Nami (One Piece) Nami is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. She is based on Ann and Silk, two characters from Oda's previous manga Romance Dawn.

Nami shouldn't be so high! She is weak and always take advantage of people.

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!

Weak, selfish, manipulative and annoying. Dislike her.

I like her, But that picture just makes me want to cringe...

6 Saeko Busujima (High School of the Dead) Saeko 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..

7 Winry Rockbell (Fullmetal Alchemist) Winry Rockbell (Fullmetal Alchemist) Winry Rockbell is a main supporting character of the Fullmetal Alchemist series. A close childhood friend of Edward and Alphonse Elric since their young life in Resembool, she is almost like a sister to the two and essentially their only family. An amateur surgeon and mechanical repair specialist/enthusiast, ...read more.

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.

8 Sakura Haruno (Naruto) Sakura Haruno (Naruto) Sakura Haruno is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

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

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

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.

She became such a better character in Shippuden. - OnyxDash

9 Kagome Higurashi (Inuyasha) Kagome Higurashi (Inuyasha)

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

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

Kagome Higurashi was my first..

10 C.C. (Code Geass) C.C. (Code Geass) C.C. is the pseudonym of a fictional character in the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion anime series by Sunrise. C.C.'s real name is never shared with the audience, despite eventually being learned by protagonist Lelouch Lamperouge.

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!

The Newcomers

? Miho Azuki (Bakuman)
? Elucia de Lute Ima (The World God Only Knows)

The Contenders

11 Mikasa Ackerman (Shingeki no Kyojin) Mikasa Ackerman (Shingeki no Kyojin) Mikasa Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama.

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.

Great female anime character.

Hinata hyuga ahead of mikasa hahahhahhahha lol what is wrong with people

12 Riza Hawkeye (Fullmetal Alchemist) Riza 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

Riza at no.10 and hinata at number 1 people who made this site sucks go and read something about them and then made your list

No contest, the rest don't even compare with Lucy.

Nobody can compare to Lucy. She should be much higher on the list

She's the only good elfen lied character

I truly respect and love this character
There won't be any character that has her character and be amazing like her

14 Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) Usagi 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...

I like salor moon

15 Harhui (Ouran High Host Club)

You spelled her name wrong.

How is she not in the top 10’s - Animeme

16 Revi (Black Lagoon)

Best female gunman ver

17 Ran 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!

19 Nagisa Furukawa (Clannad) Nagisa Furukawa (Clannad)

I did cry when watching it after 2 second showing him with his child for some reason little drops of tears started dropping from my eyes. She is wifi material alright I would have made my favorite character if she had busty plot development

I did cry when I was watching the 2 season showing him with his child for some reason little drops of tears started dropping from my eyes. She is wifi material alright I would have made my favorite character if she had busty plot development

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...

What can I say about Nagisa?

She is kind, sweet, and shy. She also loves Tomoya with all her heart. She is not afraid to show what she loves and she defends her loved ones fiercely. She is my favorite anime girl (besides Serena from Pokémon) and Nagisa x Tomoya is my favorite ship (besides AmourShipping).

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!

She represents all the otaku's of the world and she is amazing!

I can relate to her even though I'm a guy, super funny! She should be ranked near to haruhi suzumiya. Hardcore otaku and ol gamer!

OH MY GOD! Why is she in ranked 32?! jesus ' christ?! What is wrong with you people?! Shes should easily be ranked 2 or 3 at least.

She Da Best

37 Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid) Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid) Hatsune Miku, sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune, is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media.

Even that Miku is awesome, she's a vocaloid character. Not an anime one - MLPFan

38 Kamiya Kaoru (Rurouni Kenshin)

Some of the names on this list make me cringe. I decided to go with an old favorite character of mine, since it seems she's pretty low on this list compared to where she actually deserves to be.

39 Kushina Uzumaki (Naruto) Kushina Uzumaki (Naruto)

Look at what she did for her family.was willing to die for her family and village.come on she deserves. Number2

40 Asuka Langley Soryu (Neon Genesis Evangelion) Asuka Langley Soryu (Neon Genesis Evangelion)

what do you want more than anime girl?

42 Yona (Akatsuki No Yona) 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?

43 Enma Ai (Jigoku Shoujo)
44 Madoka (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)

If everyone tried to be like Madoka, the world would be a much better place. Selfless, kind, inspirational, the definition of hope in the face of evil.

I agree entirely. We could make the world a better place, one step at a time!

45 Kinomoto Sakura (Cardcaptor Sakura) Kinomoto 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.

She's adorable and sweet - Goku02

47 Charlotte Pudding (One Piece)

Pudding is so unique

Sanji waifu

48 Holo (Spice and Wolf)
49 Asuna (Sword Art Online) Asuna (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.

When people see the Mother's Rosario arc, they are definitely going to like Asuna more after the end of the arc.

She's stupid girl in love. Kirito too.

Hate her and the anime...
