She is one of the youngest and most energetic characters on this list. She is unique in that she is half-American and grew up in the US.
She can be forgetful at times and be quick to attack but she is very nice once she gets to know someone.
She starts out as being rather cold due to having difficulty making friends but she eventually warms up. Only a person with the personality of a rock would fail to recognize Chitoge's beauty and charm yes, I'm referring to you Raku Ichijou.
Chitoge is high-spirited and often aggressive, but is also sweet and caring. This memorable character is a big reason why Nisekoi is ranked as the fifth best harem anime of all time.
All the characters on this list have a fairly wide range of personalities. The medium of anime has many character archetypes that are frequently seen.
Here are some common types of female characters. Guilty Crown 's Inori Yuzuriha is one of the most indisputably beautiful characters on this list.
She may appear cold and emotionless, especially in the beginning of the series. However, there is more to her allure and personality than that!
In fact, she can be one of the most emotional and devoted girls on this list. She became more welcoming after meeting the main protagonist, Shu.
She occasionally thinks she is a burden to others despite going out of her way to protect those close to her. She is generally quiet but is efficient in combat.
If you are thinking of checking out Inori's series, you can read this review and analysis of Guilty Crown. One of the gentlest and loveliest girls on this list is Kimi ni Todoke 's Kuronuma Sawako.
She may be shy, but she is a kind and graceful girl that Kazehaya notices in the beginning. Her pale complexion and black hair makes her resemble the horror character Sadako.
A running gag with her is how easily she gets nervous, which gives her a creepy appearance. Kuronuma has always been beautiful, but she has become more charming since she started making more friends, as she can be seen smiling a lot as the series progresses.
How could her schoolmates mistake her for Sadako!? Not one man okay, except for Luffy and probably Zoro as well can escape her allure and fall for her.
Men literally turn to stone because of her beauty! She is definitely one of the most, if not the most, beautiful woman in the One Piece universe!
She can initially appear as selfish or spoiled as she can be cruel to others. She puts on this hard exterior to hide weakness as she had a rough past.
She is much more compassionate when she opens up. Grabbing eighth place is the same character who was able to grab Uzumaki Naruto's heart yes, a pure-blooded NaruHina fan right here.
The one and only Hinata Hyuga. A beautiful but shy girl since she was young, Hinata bloomed into a more graceful but stronger kunoichi of the Leaf.
She has always been polite and soft-spoken. She always put the well-being of others before herself. This led others to believe she would never amount to being a strong ninja but she proves them wrong.
When Naruto was finally dazzled by her beauty and kindness, what else could we ask for? Yukari Hayasake, also known as Caroline, is a beautiful and attractive model from the ParaKiss universe.
She was introduced as a character with a dull life, unsure of which path to take. Her mother's persistence to excel in her studies didn't help as she never seems to be pleased with Yukari.
Alas, she meets and falls in love with George and the Para-crew, and she becomes a bolder and more exquisite woman who decides to pursue a modeling career.
We were sure as hell that her beauty was meant for George and George alone, but that didn't quite workout. Misaka Ackerman is not just a pretty face, but one of the smartest and most skilled recon corps members, and she is badass.
Her tough upbringing has made her appear as cold and stoic to others but she is very loyal to Eren as she dedicates herself to protecting him.
She has a strong sense of right and wrong and can remain stoic and level-headed in the most dire situations. Everyone would agree she is beautiful, even Jean notices her.
I'm sure even the Titans think so! How could Eren not see her beauty! If you are thinking about giving Attack on Titan a shot, you should read this review of the first season.
Senjougahara is a striking figure with her purple hair and glamorous appearance. She is quickwitted and can be blunt in her speech but she is always sincere as the main protagonist Araragi discovers.
She was afflicted by weightlessness due to a crab-like creature. Her family fell victim to con men who claimed they could cure her, which is where her spiteful attitude comes from.
Despite Araragi's hesitations, Senjougahara falls in love with him after solving her affliction. She eventually becomes less hostile as a result.
We are now down to the top four prettiest anime girls in the world! No one else deserves fourth place more than this true beauty, Code Geass' Kallen Kozuki.
She is a real bishoujo as she is an ojou-sama from a prestigious Brittanian family. She is delicate and graceful by day but is the strongest pilot of the revolutionary Black Knights by night.
This makes her a more awesome beauty and a real badass! She is very strong-willed and determined and can be impulsive at times.
However, she can be gentle and compassionate. She is skilled in both hand-to-hand combat as well as piloting her mecha. If you are curious about this series, you can read this analysis of Code Geass.
The beauty of this gorgeous FMP representative would make you think she is an elegant and refined lady, but do not be fooled even Kurz was fooled in episode 1.
She is one of the most aggressive female protagonists in all of anime. She is hot-headed and has no problem speaking her mind.
Nevertheless, this is her charm and something that Sousuke totally understands. It's what he loves about her. She does have a soft side for Sousuke.
One of the youngest contenders only 16 and from a anime series wins the second place spot on this list. Mahouka Koukou no Rettosei' s Miyuki Shiba is definitely one of the loveliest, elegant, graceful, and most beautiful girls on this list.
Her beauty borders on divine. Everyone from the Mahouka Koukou no Rettosei world who has seen her is stunned by her exceptional beauty and graceful elegance.
Her brother and long-time guardian—the one who is always by her side and observes the movement of every single person around them in order to protect his sister—can surely attest to this.
I bet anyone who'd say her beauty is any lesser than this would die by Tatsuya's hand. Her beauty and allure is on a whole new level and would captivate any guy's heart!
She is a gentle and somewhat naive girl who makes a big impact on the small town she moves into. Her intriguing personality would make one only think of her.
No wonder Haruto and Kazama were head over heels for her! If you haven't seen this series yet, this is a must-watch!

Wtf where is Touka Kirishima from Tokyo Ghoul?!?!?! She was already very pretty but in Tokyo Ghoul: My opinion on Asuna Yuuki and the anime itself that its just a "gamer"typeof trash anime that revolves in multiple seasons and sh-t but like, bruh, Im a gamer, I understand the concept but the anime is.
Also, Rem anime-- Re: Zero Is also a quite strange waifu.. Like dafuq why would someone "like" a demon,, huuuh???
Ram is kyoot tho: Just a suggestion, title could highlight, or at least in the description, that this are the anime girls that YOU think are beautiful as other may think that this is base from a poll conducted.
I personally think that Violet from Violet Evergarden is the most beautiful girl. Don't kill me please. Where is Juvia Lockser?! And also CC of code geass??!!
Also, I noticed some pics from Nana up there. Reira should definitely be on any such list. I also agree that Fairy Tale has its share of women who could easily make any such list.
Big fan of Erza and MJ. It is so difficult to put these beauties on a scale. Not just because it is heavily personal preference but also because there is a deficiency in anime art.
Individuality is where true beauty comes from. You start with a template and it seems like every character in the show then follows the template.
Many times every female in the show will have an identical face, just with different hair to distinguish them, maybe different bust sizes and costumes.
All are equally beautiful because all have the same fundamentals. I must admit I am biased towards shows where the different women have genuinely different faces and figures.
I am also biased toward faces that actually have a nose. Not sure why having a nose that virtually disappears is considered cute.
Other than that, thanks for the list! However we are recognizing them as issues and are working towards resolving them.
Therefore, we are seeing the objectification and sexualization as an issue through our perspective. How do Japanese women and anime and manga consumers see and interpret this sexualization?
Earlier this year, a Japanese Twitter user ykhre tweeted a controversial essay in making a case about the problematic sexism in a popular manga and anime, One Piece.
While she was not looking to disrespect the series, she nonetheless highlighted issues of underlying themes. She criticized the background of the male characters, the weakening of male characters when they were drawn as female characters, and how the women characters are portrayed to be uninteresting and weak.
So Japanese netizens responded. There was a wide spectrum of comments, from agreement to indifference to attacking ykhre, which can be read on Rocket News Despite that, ykhre has a legitimate concern.
The portrayal of women in anime and manga is indeed a topic of conversation, but how it relates to or reflects the role of women and the extent of sexism in Japanese society is a bigger and even more complex discussion.
The school uniform is the topic of debate. Does the uniform represent her being sexualized and submitting to her situation, or does it show empowerment through her willingness to wear it and get over the embarrassment of doing so?
Despite criticisms of the latest Sailor Moon , the essential core message of the series has and remains valuable.
Girl power, regardless of how feminine or tomboyish a girl is, is illustrated as something to be appreciated and proud of. While romance is one of many threads in the story, the series should be recognized for how progressive it was for its time and still has value in empowering girls to be whoever they want to be.
Despite their differences in personality, behind a soft and quiet nature or a willful and proud one, and regardless of age and world setting, Miyazaki made his protagonists characters to appreciate and celebrate because they were not sexualized and minimized through romance.
Rather, these characters were able to overcome insecurities and fears as a way to protect what and who they care about.
So we arrive here, having started with a curious look at the portrayal of women in anime and manga and arriving at a sorrowfully inconclusive but hopefully informative end.
While the discussion warrants a chapter in a book, a whole book, or shelves books devoted to the nuances of the topic, hopefully this has provided a useful insight in understanding that women in anime and manga is a complex, varied topic that grows and changes with time.
