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.

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

No you don't understand. I can't even explain how much I love Hinata. She represents everything a good shinobi is. She is hardworking, has a strong resolve, doesn't think twice when it comes to protecting the ones she loves when they are in danger. She is extremely courageous and no matter how difficult the fight even when there is no hope she will never run.
To round it all up, she is the sweetest and nicest person after all the hatred she faced from her clan there was no hatred in her heart and she always persisted.
Hinata is the only one who acknowledged Naruto when he was called a monster by everyone. She deserves a lot of love.

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 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.

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

4 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.

Slutty piece of useless trash

5 Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist Riza Hawkeye is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

BADASS

She is sago

She's so cool and strong.

Most badass female ever

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

An independent, protective, non fanservice oriented female anime lead. Sure she played damsel in distress in the ss arc, bit she never wished to be saved, in the end she was willing to die just to keep her friends safe

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

Beautiful, strong, independent and smart.

The most ideal and perfect anime heroine!

She deserves #1 along with Revy

Saber should be number 1

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

The Newcomers

? Ultear Milkovich - Fairy Tail Ultear Milkovich - Fairy Tail

The Contenders

11 Asuna - Sword Art Online Asuna - Sword Art Online

Just has a little tsundere

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

12 Kagome Higurashi - Inyuasha Kagome Higurashi - Inyuasha Kagome Higurashi is the main female protagonist of the anime/manga series Inuyasha, equaled only in importance by Inuyasha himself.

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

Urgh I can't stand her

Has a 'deep' personality - several layers. Very smart and just a sly in a good way personality. I'd say she deserves a spot in the top 3.

Are you guys crazy? No!

14 Revy - Black Lagoon Revy - Black Lagoon Rebecca Lee, mainly referred to as Revy, and sometimes Two Hands, is the main female protagonist of the Black Lagoon series.

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!

She’s most certainly my favorite out of this list, solely because despite the testorne drive the anime and manga is. Revy’s more then this sexy and alcoholic gunslinger that swears like a sailor. With my initial thoughts towards this character being that of a walking and talking male fantasy. Boy was I ever delighted to find by far one of the most complex and three demensional women in anime and manga. She sets the bar for anti-heroines and fictional women with grey morals and emotionally thought provoking depth within manga and anime. She’s a despicable human being at the end of the day, so say what you want about her. But she’s sure as hell iconic as she is deadly.

15 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.

She's hilarious and her personality is so unique! But her character development is extremly gorgeous as well as her unique bond with Lelouch!

I like MiKasa but C.C is the best! Her persona makes her so unique!

The coolest ever. - girlcool

I mean whoever - Yask

16 Yuno Gasai - Future Diary Yuno Gasai - Future Diary

Yuno Gasai has proven to be the Yandere Queen everyone knows her as. She can stare death in the eyes, and even stab herself for the one she loves. A heroic act if you ask me. I was Yuno for Halloween.

She is Yuno Gasai.

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

Queen.

38 Rem - Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

This must be the top 1,

43 Sailor Moon Serena/Usagi - Sailor Moon

She cries a lot but she has character development and shes a classic

She cries too much, and honestly, Rei (Sailor Mars) is in my opinion, much better than her, despite her hot headed mannerisms, but I like her somewhat.

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

44 Lena Inverse - The Slayers
45 Stocking Anarchy - Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt Stocking Anarchy - Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

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.

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