The Top Ten

1 Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan Mikasa Ackerman - Attack on Titan 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 so strong and her single minded obsession of Eren's well being is something that makes her my favourite character on the anime.

I love Mikasa. She's very pretty and she's one of the best with the titan killing equipment. She's my favorite character in the show. Yes, she's a bit overprotective of Eren, but it's only because he's the only family she's got left, so I can kinda understand.

I just love her. She protects, she attacks, she is strong and smart.

Shes so deserate. I love her but I don't at the same time - Manlypants

2 Hinata Hyuga - Naruto Hinata Hyuga - Naruto Hinata Hyuga is a fictional character in the anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto.

I really love her character, especially her development.

Her struggle throughout the series taught me a valuable lesson about how true strength really is. Maybe she is weaker than many other fellows, her trying deserves an acknowledgement from everyone (including Naruto for sure).

Sacrifice, trying hard without feedback, just to advance, to overcome her own hindrances, to catch up with her love also her source of inspiration, I totally don't understand what people mean to say she is a terrible character. Because for me, she's for sure an amazing female character I've ever seen in any types of anime I've read.

She's so kind and brave. She was the first one to understand and acknowledge a guy who everyone thought was a village monster. It shows how big her heart is. She is now a sweet caring mother to her kids and has come so far overcoming her difficult childhood and anxiety

I like Hinata because unlike most heroines who are just damsel in distress Hinata can actually protect and fight for her loved ones and refuses to back down and run away. She is the one who tries to protect and doesn't rely on anyone protecting her. That's why she stands out

She's the best I love her kind and gentle personality. She would never back down and run away from a fight that's so awesome

3 Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail

Best character ever! Strong, caring, beautiful and totally not useless. Funny while being strict and helpful, a great leader and a true comrade, friend and family. Never underestimate the Titania!

She is the epitome of female characters and her strength, both mentally and physically, develops to make her a great person

Best female character ever!

She is a sexy and not useless

5 Bulma - Dragon Ball/Z/GT/Super Bulma - Dragon Ball/Z/GT/Super 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.

Bulma ROCKS! She's so intelligent and loveable! Go Bulma! - Goku02

She deserves number one. - Goku02

How is Bulma not in the top 5's? She is super smart and pretty! She and Beerus were always my favorite characters. And without her, Gohan and Krillin wouldn't have made it to Namek. Think about it: If they went to Namek in the same ship that Goku did, Goku wouldn't have been able to train in 100x gravity, so he wouldn't have ever been able to defeat Frieza.

6 Android 18 - Dragonball Z Android 18 - Dragonball Z
7 Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach

Rukia rocks! She and yoruichi are the best girls on bleach. Plus she needs more credit after all she is the one who made ichigo who he is today. And she is not a crybaby or a weakling. She's actually awesome and brave and I just don't see how sakura is in higher on the list rukia should at least be in the top ten

She might not have the curves like most bleach girls do...but she has her own beauty and strength that I like!

Beautiful, strong, independent and smart.

SHE DESERVE TO BE IN THE TOP 5. NO TOP 3!

Hot and cool at the same time. Best anime female.

My gorgeous queen!

How many Girl mechanics do you know!? That can repair automail!

The Contenders

11 Revy - Black Lagoon Revy - Black Lagoon

She is one person that you don't want to make angry. She has a very short temper and when you piss her off, she'll kill you without remorse or any second thoughts. But at the same time she's one of the main protagonists. She's a badass!

12 Kagome Higurashi - Inyuasha Kagome Higurashi - Inyuasha

I'm glad that the anime fangirls don't hate her. She deserve one of the top 10. She learn many skills, you know.

She has her badass moments

This bitch is boring and shouldn't be on this list.

Overrated hypocritical whiny b***hy useless bimbo

13 Maka Albarn - Soul Eater Maka Albarn - Soul Eater

She was genuinely fun to watch - Blueberrypie

14 Asuna - Sword Art Online Asuna - Sword Art Online

She is extremely cute and beautiful. Although she is also really strong and can be a badass sometimes

So strong, I totally understand kirito

The only female anime character better than her is Silica but she isn't on the list so I voted 4 Asuna

Is Kiritos love interest. Best girl anime for sure... very strong independant girl fearless and yet sensitive sweet and very confusing. Beautiful and knows what she wants in my opinion she is for sure should be in the top 5 best anime girls in the world.
i enjoy watching this show mostly because of asuna.

15 Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno - Naruto Sakura Haruno is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

She is just an ugly damsel in naruto.

I enjoy the idea that she is a normal person like the rest of us. I can imagine talking to her and being friends. I like that she is more open about her feelings and that she loves her friends. It's nice to see someone with a normal life in Team 7 because if everyone had to get all emotional with their backstory it would get pretty depressing. In shonen it's almost like, "Oh, that person has a sad past we have to make him our favorite" and with Sakura it's like "She doesn't have a sad past she's awful! " I'm not saying that this is the only reason people hate her. People also say her love for Sassuke is simply an obsession and a "Notice Me Senpai" thing and she should die or that she is a useless chick who can only punch and heal, well face the facts people! Had it not been for Sakura many characters would have died. Also there's the fact that she doesn't return Naruto's love, well if you watch The Last she says that the only reason he had a crush on her was to compete with Sasuke and ...more

Sakura is by far the most underrated character on Naruto. She's strong, smart, fast, and she can heal almost any wound. Without her, Naruto would be dead; that alone says a lot. She has saved thousands of lives and the war would not have been won if she hadn't taken out nearly half of the enemies BY HERSELF. If you think Hinata is better, keep this in mind. In the war, Sakura killed thousands of enemies while savings thousands of her comrades. The only thing Hinata did was attempt to kill one enemy (she failed by the way) and scream "Naruto-KUN! " before tripping on a rock.

Hell noo

16 Yuno Gasai - Future Diary Yuno Gasai - Future Diary

She started a craze, whilst being badass at the same time

She is Yuno Gasai.

Queen.

She’s a strong, independent woman who can stare danger in the eyes. She always has a plan and will do anything to get the person he wants. She isn’t afraid of anyone or anything and when she loves, she loves with a full heart. She will get rid of anyone or anything that’s in her way. Heart breaks don’t slow her down for long. Yuno Gasai is the right choice for everyone.

17 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.

Without her OP probably won't make it to this point as the 2 strongest members had no sense of the direction and the rest don't have enough knowledge in weather and navigating ( maybe except robin and franky? ), they've probably sunk back at the red line

The same could be said of nearly everyone though. They would be dead without Luffy, Zoro and Sanji too at least. Hell Nami would be dead a long time ago without Luffy and Sanji. - Annabelle6

Nami is way too high for such a weak and manipulative character.

Best. Character. Ever.

cute

Honestly to me she is just one of those characters that is just so hard to dislike especially when she is Nyu. Are you thirsty, need some water? Let me get you a shoe!

24 Yoruichi - Bleach

Are you mad Yoruichi at 43 - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

25 Charlotte Pudding - One Piece

She has just been introduced but she's already my favorite One Piece girl.

Ah, Pudding... Such a complex and interesting character. I don't think you can be indifferent to her (good or bad) and that's what makes her a great character.

26 Lunamaria Hawke - Gundam SEED Destiny Lunamaria Hawke - Gundam SEED Destiny
27 Homura Akemi - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Homura Akemi - Puella Magi Madoka Magica Homura Akemi is a fictional character from the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica and its related media.

She repeated time over and over again to save Madoka. It's a shame that in Rebellion, she became the devil. But she's still a great character. She's an awesome gunshooter and Is also athletic(as shown In episode 1). - MLPFan

28 Misty - Pokemon Misty - Pokemon Misty, known as Kasumi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Greatest anime bodyguard ever

37 Tsubomi Hanasaki / Cure Blossom - HeartCatch Precure Tsubomi Hanasaki / Cure Blossom - HeartCatch Precure
38 Lena Inverse - The Slayers
39 Sailor Moon Serena/Usagi - Sailor Moon

Well she’s not bad like she has to see her friends die

40 Seras Victoria - Hellsing Seras Victoria - Hellsing

She should be at least in the top five. She's strong but caring and she's Alucard's fledgling. I love her guns as well as her determination. She's a badass! She's my other favorite Hellsing character after Alucard. And she's very beautiful.

41 Chelsea - Akame Ga Kill Chelsea - Akame Ga Kill

46 Konno Yuuki - Sword Art Online II
47 Asuka Langley Soryu - Neon Genesis Evangelion Asuka Langley Soryu - Neon Genesis Evangelion
48 Holo - Spice and Wolf

Sad to see how unpopular this list seems to be. Anyway Holo is the shining example of doing the opposite of what many anime companies do to their anime females that makes them so bland and uninteresting.

Deserves a top ten spot. She's my aesthetic.

I LOVE Holo. She's so unique and beautiful.

Literally a queen, I can't comprehend why she's so low on this list. she's such a fun and intriguing character what deserves a way higher spot

49 Annie Leonhart - Attack on Titan Annie Leonhart - Attack on Titan Annie Leonhart 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.

ANNIe Leonhart is the best and she nose it. Lol. But she's awesome. She's quick,cunning,smart,and hot. I still ship her and armin or jer and Eren - Manlypants
