As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her Nakama's calls that they want help. ...read more.

Erza is way better than anything in fairy tail, best thing in fairy tail ever.

Erza deserve to be the top 1 best anime character because she is brave, strong, pretty, and she is also powerful because she can change her outfit and become more powerful and strong. Erza is the best for me because she is good and helpful.

She used to be one of my favourite female characters at the beginning of the series, but after her fight against Azuma her character has gone downhill really fast. I think now I'm neutral leaning towards disliking her. - Goku02

She is cute, strong,skilled, and beautiful got that

5 Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach

Rukia is my idol!

I definitely find her among the top most impressive female anime characters out there! I love how strong and smart she is. Even when she's at her weakest point when losing her powers, her sense of duty and moral to protect people never wavers. She truly has a big heart. And despite her cool attitude on the surface, I consider her to be very kind, generous, and humble, especially during her character development after meeting Ichigo.

Plus, I love how she's a badass tomboy with nerve and a surprisingly strong sense of humor. She's small but fierce, and that makes her beautiful! She should have her own Shonen series!

There's a lot of anime female characters but I chose Rukia. She's simply the best, she's strong, beautiful and is a badass. - cana_alberona

Rukia is my spirit animal! I love her sassy personality and how independent and strong she is!

Rukia is one of the best females ever in anime. She's funny, kind, has good character development and a badass ice-type Bankai. Just the best. - Goku02

She loves her celestial spirits and will fight with her life for her friends

... I really can't take her seriously with this picture, who chose that? - TopiTaupe

She is sexy and powerful wizard.she has a generous heart

Being weak doesn't matter. But in manga she isn't weak, she is strong. But people still say she is weak. But still, character is important when compared to strenth in my opinion. In that case lucy has a kind character. She is so bubbly and happy always. I love such type of character😄.

Yona is the best! My beautiful princess Yona! - Angelatran

I love this manga/ anime, this series changed my life

Go to young princess to have to run from her castle she quickly come to care about those who want to help her and think about how she can return it to them. People called her crybaby because her father have been killed but she doesn't even cry that much and try to focus on the other despite her broken heart. She's just 16 but try to act stronger than it's even asked to her and grown to be strong. She's admirable. - TopiTaupe

Yona's character development is one of the best that I've seen so far. A spoiled, naive princess who was chased out of her safe sanctuary soon learned the real deal of her world.

She learned how to be physically, emotionally and mentally strong. Yona didn't became some Mary Sue like some other Shoujo MC. She still has her flaws that made her more of an interesting character.
