35. Dr. Karen Tendou From Gamers
One of the hotties in the industry during the last few years is Karen Tendou. The stereotypically “pretty” lead character who is idolized at school.
She is responsible, gets up early to jog, plays video games, and still maintains organization and sets a nice example. She also has outstanding grades.
But after falling in love, Karen Tendou begins to disintegrate, much like the anime’s story, which is focused on romantic misunderstandings and other issues.
34. Emi Yusa From The Devil Is A Part Timer
I believe that Emi Yusa is underappreciated in the anime world. She isn’t mentioned by many people, blogs, or websites.
She is an angel who battles demons to defend the entire universe. She is also seeking retribution for the murders of the individuals close to her by Satan and his minions.
She was just a young child at the time.
However, because to a mishap, both Emi Yusa and Satan (Sadao Mao) find themselves in the human realm in the anime’s narrative. where their powers no longer function as they once did.
They are required to work, pay rent, live like humans, and obtain passports.
While Satan unexpectedly starts to turn out to be a wonderful man due to the effect of the new surroundings, Emi is made to “play along.”
33. Yumeko Jabami From Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler
I only had to watch one episode of Kakegurui to be reminded of how spooky and endearing Yumeko Jabami is.
Just take a look at the opening sequence for Season 1, which shows Yumeko gleefully crawling on top of a dinner table full of food while wearing her red-and-black school uniform, Itsuki Sumeragi licking her toe with delight.
Similar to how the MC is shown strutting in the ED, there are closeups of her pink lips, her long, damp black hair, and all the important curves.
Although Yumeko’s passion of gambling (and how she essentially gets off at the prospect of taking enormous risks) keeps viewers like myself riveted to the screen, Kakegurui is a bizarre program with freaky facial expressions.
32. Albedo From Overlord
I noticed that Yumeko Jabami and Albedo are exactly next to one another and that they have a lot in common.
They both have long black hair, a curvy body, and something that drives them insane, frequently in a suggestive sexual way.
Albedo has Yumeko’s deep love and affection for Ainz, while Yumeko has gambling.
She may be a succubus, but isn’t it ironic that her design includes loving sentiments in addition to lust?
But don’t be misled by her ardent admiration for Momonga:
Albedo is a top-tier candidate for marriage and also makes a competent and calm guardian supervisor. She may therefore be loving while simultaneously inspiring others to fight.
31. Sakie Satou From Demi-chan wa Kataritai
Sakie has black hair, but it’s not as long as Albedo and Yumeko’s.
Sakie enjoys wearing her hair in a ponytail, which only adds to her allure whenever she lets it down.
I don’t remember if she wears red glasses to hide her succubus abilities from male faculty members and students, but here’s the thing: Some guys adore the glasses.
Sakie isn’t here solely for the sake of her character design, of course.
She is a bashful, kind demi-human who wants to blend in with others and wonders if she would be accepted for who she is as opposed to just her outward appearance (and what she is).
30. Zero two From Darling in the FranXX
Anyone anyone remember how Darling in the FranXX’s popularity soared once viewers first saw Zero Two, with her instantly recognizable pale pink hair, scarlet horns, and small, cute fangs, in the early episodes?
It seems to have happened over night.
Zero Two received more fan adoration and hype during its 24-episode run in 2018 than the series itself, but that’s okay.
After dominating the anime community, Zero Two left to make way for other heroines to take her place as the audience’s new favorite.
29. Chika Fujiwara From Kaguya-sama: Love is War
Speaking of how Kaguya-sama: Love is War featured Chika Fujiwara, the anime fandom had no trouble picking a new favorite female every season.
Although she isn’t the main protagonist, her magnetism is difficult to ignore.
When Episode 03 aired, in particular, the wider anime community was introduced to the so-called love detective.
It had Chika dancing in the ED, which was just adorable and fluid (thanks to Naoya Nakayama for the key animation).
Her dance rapidly went viral and was the subject of jokes everywhere. By that time, the name of this high school student with a large bow and pale pink hair (in the manga, it is silver) was well-known to anime viewers.
28. Maki Oze From Fire Force
Among anime lovers, it’s a frequent joke (and sincere wish) to want to be crushed by a fictitious 2D girl’s huge thighs. Although I’m sure Maki Oze can suffocate people with her thighs, it’s different with her.
I’m sure a good number of male (and female) fans immediately chose a new best girl after seeing a particular still of her from EP 01 that was a great combination of her feminine assets and her athletic prowess.
Her hair is also gorgeous; it’s simple but stylish.
She only has dark brown hair; neither is it bright or rainbow colored. Maki is also lacking in hair accessories.
Instead, a portion of her left-side hair is positioned behind her ear, while the remainder of her right-side hair is still in front of her right ear. Her bangs also don’t reach her leftmost forehead.
The end of that.
27. Utaha Kasumigaoka From Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata
Although I lack the data to support my assertion, I’m fairly confident that many Saekano fans own a body pillow or dakimakura of Utaha.
I’m not even joking when I tell that a nearby online otaku shop was just last week once more selling her body pillow, which was naturally drawing a lot of attention.
Even though Utaha isn’t my favorite character in the series, I must admit that she is one of the best.
26. Nezuko Kamado From Demon Slayer
When Nezuko Kamado was a person, her hair was bound. However, her hair falls back down whenever she turns into a demon. Her hair is long throughout the majority of the Demon Slayer series because of this.
She starts out as the kind of sister who is all about the family: kind and caring. and will take all necessary measures to help and safeguard her siblings.
This alters QUICKLY. Everyone is killed, with the exception of her and her older brother Tanjiro. Nezuko is also transformed into a demon.
She still has a strong desire to defend people and is still polite and gentle.
25. Satsuki Kiryuin From Kill La Kill
In the beginning of Kill La Kill, Satsuki Kiryuin comes across as annoying, conceited, and naughty as F.
She is seen dictating to everyone and is essentially a “evil” alter ego of Erza Scarlet.
The problem with Satsuki Kiryuin is that she attracts followers due to her compulsive need to succeed and her reputation for setting extremely high standards.
She is both a feared and an encouraging person.
She is an original protagonist.
24. Jessie From Pokemon
Jesse must be included on any list of long-haired anime women.
She is not just one of the anime characters with the most instantly identifiable looks, but she also has some of the most amazing gravity-defying hair.
Jesse really adores her long hair and will lose her mind if it gets damaged.
The same is true of her looks, as she is highly vain and is capable of erupting in severe anger at the slightest hint of aging.
Despite the fact that most of her initiatives fail due to her ego and vanity, most of us still shout the Team Rocket mantra whenever it is played.
23. Chitoge Kirisaki From Nisekoi
The hair on this blonde female is incredibly long and pink-tinted at the ends.
She is the epitome of what a cute anime girl should be, especially when wearing her white and baby blue school uniform.
Chitoge, although can be a little forgetful, is always willing to go above and beyond to help others. She even found Raku’s missing pendant after it had been lost.
We respectfully disagree with those who claim Kosaki Onodera is superior.
22. Shiraishi From Tanaka-kun Is Always Listless
Shiraishi is so adorably cute. She scores a perfect 10 on the cuteness scale thanks to her large brown eyes and long strawberry blonde hair pulled back in twin short tails.
Shiraishi, who is so endearing, is shown to be disturbed by her looks and prefers a more laid-back and comfortable look than the one she presents in public.
When she is by herself, she even puts her bangs in a tiny ponytail. Even though it isn’t fashionable, it somehow makes her even cuter (and relatable).
21. Shiro From No Game, No Life
Although Shiro is a lovely character, there has been much discussion concerning the inclusion of lolis in anime due to her popularity.
It doesn’t exactly help that Shiro and Sora are step-siblings, which is a cliché turned meme in and of itself, or that the anime has a noticeable ecchi element.
Despite this, Shiro is distinctive, vibrant, and exquisitely made to blend into the style of her series.
She is quite attractive, with her long white hair that frequently assumes light pink and blue tones and her red and gold eyes.
Aside from this, she excels in competitive gaming, but because she is young, she still need assistance in dealing with some of life’s more difficult emotional issues, which makes her refreshingly relatable.
20. Raphtalia From The Rising of the Shield Hero
Another character that epitomizes what a nice waifu should be like is Raphtalia.
She has long brown hair, perky ears, and a bushy tail, resembling a cross between a raccoon and a tanuki.
She immediately stands out as one of the cutest anime females because to these characteristics, and despite her past traumas, her generosity and bravery make her a genuinely heroic figure.
19. Aqua From Konosuba
Aqua is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable and endearing goddesses in the series, despite the opinion of some anime fans who believe she is one of the series’ least useful characters.
This anime girl is all about the color blue, as her name suggests, from her light blue hair and eyes to her dark blue feather outfit and coordinating skirt.
She is entirely incapable of lying, and when she does, all it takes is a pinch on her cheek to get her talking. This is one of her best qualities.
She is generally one of the series’ cheeriest and carefree characters, despite the fact that she struggles to consider the repercussions of her actions before she takes them.
18. Reina Kousaka From Hibike Euphonium!!
Reina is a lovely, calm girl who takes pride in her musical abilities. She has long, straight black hair, and her eyes are bright amethyst.
Although she may first come out as nasty, cold, and a little standoffish, she ultimately changes her tune and expresses regret for her actions as she becomes more sympathetic and amiable with her fellow pupils.
Anime lovers fall in love with her kind attitude the moment she lets her guard down.
17. Shinobu Oshino From Kizumonogatari
In spite of making several appearances as a vampire, Shinobu, also known as Kiss-Shot, stands out in each and every one of them.
She was once a cursed human princess, but a purebred vampire gradually transformed her into the stunning vampire she is now.
She usually has a young feminine appearance with pointed ears, brilliant yellow eyes, and long blonde hair that curls outwards at the ends.
She can appear older by sucking blood, however this alters based on her vampiric strength.
Most of her followers would be more than willing to give themselves as a meal because she is just as seductive in her adult form as you would anticipate a vampire to be.
16. Hitagi Senjougahara From Bakemonogatari
One of the most well-known female anime characters is Hitagi.
She stands out and stays with you right away with her long, purple hair, razor-sharp tongue, and penchant for threatening people—especially Araragi.
Although she claims to be a tsundere, in reality she is more of a kuudere who at least has a basic knowledge of otaku culture.
She also demonstrates her astronomical expertise while dating Aragagi, which is a desirable quality for a potential waifu.
15. Shouko Nishimiya From A Silent Voice
Shouko may have a straightforward appearance with her light brown long hair, a kind smile, and a laid-back demeanor, but it is part of what makes her special and alluring.
She has a genuine concern for everyone around her, and despite having a difficult upbringing, she doesn’t let it stop her. She even forgave the bully she was bullied by as a young girl without hesitation.
For many anime lovers, she will always be remembered because of how kind and lovely she is, and because of how persistent she is.
14. Holo From Spice and Wolf
It’s likely that if you enjoy Raphtalia, you’ll enjoy this fluffy-eared demi-human as well.
Holo lived as their wheat goddess and was a huge wolf that became a town’s harvest god.
She had to leave the village, though, as harvest became simpler as a result of agricultural advancements.
Holo is a self-assured, intelligent character who also harbors a strong anxiety of being by himself. She begins to like Lawrence, and the two of them make for one of anime’s best couples.
13. Violet Evergarden From Violet Evergarden
This blonde-haired beauty, who stars in her own self-titled series, stands out from other anime girls due to her odd demeanor and distinct past.
Violet, a former soldier, was raised as a weapon and never allowed to develop into a person.
She ultimately decides to turn into an Auto Memory Doll after the final battle in order to understand more about emotions.
Although she initially takes things too literally and comes across as being insensitive in her profession as a Doll, she soon learns about human emotions, which greatly aids in her character development.
12. Maquia From Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms
Maquia stands out among anime girls with long hair for her kindness.
After her nation is obliterated, she finds and takes in Ariel, a newborn with red hair. Even her blonde hair is dyed to match his.
Trust us when we say Maquia is one of the best mothers in anime history, and everyone in the anime community who hasn’t seen this girl in action ought to make it a priority.
Despite the fact that she fights with concerns about her capacity to be a good mother.
11. C. C. From Code Geass
C.C. is distinctive because to her long neon green hair, sharp face, and big golden eyes.
She doesn’t express much emotion throughout the series, although in some circumstances, she may be rather obstinate and arrogant.
Even the possibility that she might have started feeling romantically drawn to Lelouch is raised, and Kallen asks her about it.
Her love of pizza is one characteristic that makes her accessible and gives her the moniker “Pizza Girl.” She risks being captured just to have a slice of pizza because she loves it so much.
Given how great pizza is, we can’t really blame her.
10. Kaori Miyazono From Your Lie in April
A winning mix, this blonde girl has long hair that falls just below her shoulders and beautiful blue eyes.
But what really makes her stand out is her capacity to encourage people to live their lives to the utmost.
Because of her love of life and free-spirited nature, she is an anime character that fans can easily relate to.
You’re in for a treat if you haven’t watched her series yet. Just remember to pack some tissues—you’re going to need them.
9. Emilia From Re:Zero
Emilia is without a doubt one of Re:most Zero’s attractive girls.
She has long, white hair, exquisitely pointed ears, and a purple and white clothing that harmonizes well with her hair and eyes.
She is as sweet-natured as she appears to be, and she loves to look after other people.
We are completely inclined to agree that she exemplifies what many people picture as the ideal girl.
8. Rin Tohsaka From Fate/Stay Night
Rin has long, dark brown hair that is usually pulled back into twin pigtails, but as she gets older, she starts to let it down.
She presents herself as a serious, insightful model student at school, but in private, she can be noisy, pushy, and highly cunning.
She has a compassionate nature, though, and she genuinely cares about those who are close to her.
The protagonist of Fate/Stay Night, Rin, really shines and demonstrates what a fantastic character she can be.
7. Kaguya Shinomiya From Kaguya-sama: Love is War
In the eyes of many fans, Kaguya is unquestionably one of the best anime heroines of all time and one of the best anime girls.
Kaguya has a distinctive appearance that makes her stand out from the other characters nearby. She has long, black hair that she ties back with a ribbon and big, red eyes.
She may be excruciatingly logical at times, which affects her social life, but after joining the student council, she starts to open up and develop love for Miyuki.
6. Yukino Yukinoshita From My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU
She may not stand out from other anime girls due to her long, black hair, but she is a particularly well-written character.
Although she was raised in a wealthy family and can occasionally come across as arrogant, she has strong beliefs about assisting those who are less fortunate than herself.
She undergoes a lot of character growth during the series, and watching her believable metamorphosis is what many viewers keep watching for.
5. Kurisu Makise From Steins:Gate
This redhead has a great sense of humor and is gorgeous. Who could ask for more as an anime fan?
Her funny attitude and tsundere tendencies will captivate you if her waist-length fiery hair doesn’t.
Just remember not to anger her by calling her a tsundere in front of her.
4. Eriri Spencer From Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend
Eriri, a different tsundere, is an outspoken doujinshi artist who has been heavily affected by her otaku father and fujoshi mother.
Although she may not visually stand out from other anime girls due to her brilliant blonde hair and large blue eyes, her general charm and demeanor allure her to fans.
She is a courteous and educated girl who is well-liked in school. She is, however, a complete hardcore otaku like her Tomoya when she is by herself.
Speaking about Tomoya, it’s amusing to watch this girl grow flustered and start to display her tsundere side when trying to communicate her affections for him.
3. Tsubasa Hanekawa From Kizumonogatari
Although she has short hair in Nisemonogatari, we prefer her long hair in Kizumonogatari.
Although Tsubasa’s long brown hair is a great visual representation of her character development, we can’t help but miss it.
Whatever the case, she is one of the most intriguing anime characters, and it takes a while for us to fully understand who she really is.
2. Eru Chitanda From Hyouka
When Eru is curious, which she frequently is, there’s just something about the way her big blue eyes sparkle that makes us think that.
You can’t help but be drawn in by how adorable this girl is with just one glance.
Her long, straight black hair wonderfully frames her delicate face and large eyes, and she couldn’t be cuter if she tried.
1. Asuka Langley From Neon Genesis Evangelion
Asuka deserves recognition for having a significant impact on the development of the tsundere anime girl archetype.
Asuka is one of the most well-liked anime characters from her series, even surpassing Rei, who held the previous record.
She is one of the most complicated, unique, and realistic anime characters ever made, and her success is primarily because to this.
It is hard to imagine another character who is as realistic, deep, and imperfect as she is.
