Bishoujo: The Most Beautiful Female Anime Characters Ever


Ayu is one of the biggest anime fans out there and watches as many series as possible.


One of the many reasons why we love anime so much are the countless beautiful characters. Their beauty and allure captures our hearts and keeps us up during the late hours for furious anime marathons!

Now, without further delay, I present to you my list of the most beautiful female anime characters of all time.

15. Asuna Yuuki: Sword Art Online

One of the most popular female anime characters ever is Asuna Yuuki of Sword Art Online. Asuna is not just all beauty, she is also one of the best swordsman in the SAO universe. Her unmatched speed and healing powers also earned her the titles of "The Flash" and "Berserk Healer." There is a reason she was ranked fifth on the list of best fighters in SAO. She is very kind and helpful and plays an instrumental role in the quest to escape from SAO. Her popularity started in the virtual world, but it spread widely both on and offline and in anime communities too! Her boyfriend Kirito is such a lucky guy.

What Is Bishoujo?

You may need an explanation of what bishoujo actually is. It literally means pretty girl in Japanese. Within the anime fanbase, the term is used to generally refer to female characters that are young and attractive. The term is not typically used for female characters that are mature and sophisticated. Bishoujo characters often cater to a male audience and evoke a sense of cuteness. While standard for the shoujo genre of anime, these characters can appear in a variety of genres as this list will illustrate.

14. Kaga Kouko: Golden Time

Almost every guys dream girl (except for Mitsuo) is Kaga Kouko of Golden Time. This amazing beauty can be both wild and loving at the same time. She is a freshman law student that is always seen in stylish clothes. Despite her bratty attitude (at times), she can be one of the most devoted girlfriends in anime. She can be a bit clingy at times, but that is only because she is so devoted. Smart, elegant, and loving, she is unforgettable! Unless you have amnesia like her boyfriend Banri. She is a major reason why Golden Time ranks in at number five for the best romance anime of all time.

13. Inoue Orihime: Bleach

Whether in Karakura Town or in the Soul Society, Inoue Orihihime of Bleach has always been the talk of the town for her beauty. She is an optimistic and caring girl whose naïveté can hide her intelligence and strong perceptive skills. She has a very active imagination and can get carried away with ideas. Because of her unquestionable womanly charms, she is often the subject of jealousy among girls her age, as we witnessed in Hueco Mundo. But anyone who dares to leave her off a list of beautiful anime women would incur the wrath of a fanbase scattered all over different worlds like Earth, the Soul Society, and Hueco Mundo!

12. Chitoge Kirisaki: Nisekoi

Landing at number 12 on this list is Nisekoi's protagonist Chitoge Kirisaki. 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.

What Are the Different Personality Types in Anime?

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.

  • Tsundere: These are characters that switch between having a harsh demeanor to a more softer, demure one. They typically get softer around a love interest before berating them and trying to cover up whatever good deed they have done. Chitoge Kirisaki would be an example of a tsundere.
  • Dandere: These are characters that are quiet and shy. They commonly wear glasses. They can become more talkative when around their love interest.
  • Kuudere: These are cold and distant characters that don't really convey any emotions. They rarely speak and can be very blunt when they do. They often have no facial expressions and speak in a flat tone. Despite their cold exteriors, they can be caring individuals.
  • Deredere: These characters are very cheerful and hyper. They typically show strong affection for their loved ones.
  • Himedere: These characters often have a royal personality and expect to be treated like a princess. Their haughty attitude is usually used to hide some type of weakness or insecurity.

11. Inori Yuzuriha: Guilty Crown

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.

10. Kuronuma Sawako: Kimi ni Todoke

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!?

9. Boa Hancock: One Piece

The most beautiful pirate in the world, known as the Pirate Empress and Shichibukai, is Boa Hancock from One Piece. 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.

8. Hinata Hyuga: Naruto/Naruto Shippuden

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?

7. Yukari "Caroline" Hayasaka: Paradise Kiss

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.

6. Mikasa Ackerman: Shingeki no Kyojin

Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin's strongest and most beautiful woman made her way to number six on this list! 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.

5. Senjougahara Hitagi: Bakemonogatari

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.

4. Kallen Kozuki/Kallen Stadtfeld: Code Geass

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.

3. Kaname Chidori: Full Metal Panic

And now for our number three pick, I give you Kaname Chidori from Full Metal Panic. 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.

2. Miyuki Shiba: Mahouka Koukou no Rettosei

One of the youngest contenders (only 16 and from a 2014 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.

1. Yuzuki Eba: Kimi no Iru Machi

Without further ado, I present to you the most beautiful anime character of all, Yuzuki Eba from Kimi no Iru Machi (A Town Where You Live). 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!

Time to vote!

Solar on September 04, 2020:

Miyuki Shiba is the best. Not Kaga.

D good one. on September 04, 2020:

D first girl doesn't look that good. Kaga kouko is the best.

Vitriolic on August 27, 2020:

The only one thats actually supposed to be here you put at number 15. That and if there was a "15 most bland characters" half of them could be taken from this list." Like you said here, there is so much beauty in this form of artwork and it saddens me so see that not only has part of this spotlight been wasted on whitewashed and uninspiring characters like Hinata and Mikasa but also that so many better candidates have been thrown to the wayside and the opportunity to display true beauty will have to shine somewhere else.

JillianMation on August 19, 2020:

I didn't see Shouko Nishimya on this list. And that makes me upset. Because Shouko is as pure as a chirren UwU

Cliff on August 11, 2020:

I meant in the "Time to vote!" part.

Cliff on August 11, 2020:

Its Mikasa Ackerman, not Misaka Ackerman.

Ju ju naing on August 03, 2020:

Asuna and chitoge

locoluis1978 on August 01, 2020:

Sorry, but my opinion is that Boa Hancock shouldn't be in this list at all. One Piece's off-putting cartoonish style doesn't help her either.

But it's not just a matter of style. I'm not a fan of Paradise Kiss's noodle people style, but I think Yukari "Caroline" Hayasaka, when she sports a flattering hairstyle, is still quite good looking.

OTOH, Erio Touwa from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko is a glaring omission from this list.

there are far too many to put on a list and say they are the 'most beautiful' as that is just going to be an opinion from the author. Have you watched every anime lol for example Ethana - tower of druaga, Misaka Mikoto - acs railgun, Hiyori Iki- noragami even Mizutani shizuku- kaibutsu kun depending on choice/popularity.

EveryonesACritic on July 20, 2019:

The only way to get an actual list like this, would be to first collect names on which characters everyone finds attractive, then put it to a vote and only list the top 10. The Voting sample size will determine the accuracy.

This article fails because it only votes after being created...

Bad article on July 12, 2019:

Esdeath is waifu for laifu

what idiot made this article on July 12, 2019:

This is a terrible list. There's only a few decent ones and the rest aren't even good.

If you guys want some ACTUAL ATTRACTIVE CHARACTERS, here's some right now:

Xenovia Quarda from High School DxD

Dangerous Beast from Fate/Grand Order

Fubuki from One Punch Man

Tatsumaki from One Punch Man

Medaka Kurokami from Medaka Box

Arashi Nikaido from OniAi
