Anime characters are adored, idolized, cosplayed, criticized, loved & commended all across the globe. The depth in the characters of protagonist in anime is commendable. The characters are very life-like and quite relatable. Due to this, every character has its own fan base. Though its common to have guy protagonist more, it doesn’t mean there aren’t enough female protagonists. Anime like Fairy Tail, Slayers, Sword Art Online, Angel Beats etc. have almost comparable no. of male & female characters. These beauties are not to be taken lightly or mocked. With intense character, unmatched skills and immense strength, these anime girls make for few of the best protagonist of animes, & in fact some of the best characters ever.
There are many cool and smashing anime girls but listing them all would be too much. So a list of the most awe-inspiring (& fear inspiring too) characters showing the top ten has been done. Since discussing all the ten here would be too much, the last five have been discussed here.
10) Lucy Heartfilia
Lucy is one of the two main lead females from Fairy Tail. She is normally quite cheerful, & perhaps the only sane member of Fairy Tail. Her faith in friendship is unshakable & if anyone threatens her friends or Fairy Tail (her guild), she doesn’t hesitate to take the threat down no matter the risks she has to face. Despite not being excited about fighting, she would happily stand up to danger for her friends. She uses keys magic to summon celestial spirits from a parallel world, & also uses a whip as her primary weapon. The combination of the two makes her a force to be reckoned with. Lucy refuses to treat her spirits as objects, instead asking them to be her friends. She has a passion for literature. She left home to follow her own path, which displays an ambition for independence. Also, she never breaks a promise, no matter what.
9) Haruhi Suzumiya:
Haruhi has her whole series named after her ‘The melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya’. Haruhi is a bright, energetic and athletic high-school student. True, she does not have much of fighting skills; she is still not someone you can bully. She is the master of the universe & her will is the fate of the world. See my point? It’s definitely better to stay away from her. Plus, her character is quite daunting too. Just talking to her might make you uncomfortable.
8) Lucrezia Noin:
Noin might have been from an old anime, Gundam Wing made in 1995, but she is heck of a pilot. She is sort of a tomboy, and not only does she excel in piloting a mobile suit (i.e. giant mechas), she is also adept at commanding & leading her own feet making her a top-notch instructor. Despite this, she actually dislikes war and only does what she does out of love for space. And she would do anything for her partner zechs. Her piloting skills are one of the best & Zechs doesn’t mind pairing up with her in a battle (endless waltz). That says a lot about her.
7) Yuuki Asuna :
She is the sub-leader of the “Knights of the Blood” guild in the VMMORPG, Sword Art Online. She is quite friendly & does seem like an average girl. But she has killer skills when it comes to using a rapier. She strikes lighting fast & her courage is note-worthy. She believes in humanity & would fight to protect it even risking her own life. Asuna is a kind and helpful person who cannot abandon another in trouble. She also has great cooking skills.
6) Millenium Feria Nocturne:
Lost universe is one of the anime to be ever made but sadly it’s not widely known. Millenium, or Millie, is one of the three protagonists of the series. She is the best cook in the world, the fastest runner in the world, has the most no. of trophies in the world, and wants to be the best in the universe. What else remain? With a cheerful & stubborn yet charming personality, she is the one of the girls you don’t want to mess with. Her aim is 101% accurate; if she aims, it’s a dead hit. She too believes in friendship & would do anything for her friends.
