28) Bulma from Dragon Ball Z

Growing up, I admired Bulma. She was my role model. As a little girl, my relatives gave me Disney movies to watch. You know, the ones where the FL is dreaming for her Prince Charming to save her? I never clicked with that.

I think this was the first time I ever saw blue hair on an anime character, so whenever I thought of Bulma, I thought of blueberries!

But Bulma dreamt of being a scientist—and she became a brilliant one at that. Her drive is so beautiful to me, and I’m sure it is to most young, aspiring girls. It’s only the beginning, but I’m already getting too emotional!

27) Rukia Kuchiki from Bleach

Rukia is a babe. I didn’t like Bleach’s art style at the start of the series, but for some reason, Rukia’s character design always enthralled me.

Yes, she is petite and short, but don’t let that fool you. This girl is as OP as you can get. She was adopted in nobility, but unlike most high-ranked snobs, she prefers talking to ordinary people.

26) Kyoka Jiro from My Hero Academia

Kyoka is a tease. She likes to playfully poke fun at people, and she’s overall an unenthusiastic girl. Sometimes I get tired of the cliché hyperactive characters, so Kyoka is refreshing to watch. Despite her not being the most active, she has enough energy to be friendly and socialize with people. That, I need to work on personally.

25) Sayaka Miki from Puella Magi Madoka Magica

You better stop me from climbing onto this screen. How cute is Sayaka?! Sayaka is a tomboy who doesn’t hesitate to move quickly in combat. She loves anime which is always a plus for me.

The reason why she became a magical girl is to save Madoka. This alone portrays Sayaka’s concern for her friends.

24) Ichigo from Darling in the Franx

Ichigo is a leader, so she’s responsible and serious. Maybe not when it concerns Hiro and his interactions with Zero Two, but most of the time she keeps her cool.

She cares deeply for her friends and is constantly encouraging teamwork. If she didn’t have such a huge crush on Hiro, I could see her becoming best friends with Zero Two. Opposites do attract.

23) Lisbeth/Rika from Sword Art Online

I will not tolerate any Lisbeth slander. Lisbeth is a blacksmith who is superb at her job. So no, she isn’t helplessly wandering SAO. She’s diligent and dedicated to her craft. You try forging swords with molten metal before you share your two cents about Lisbeth.

Side note, if you criticize her work, you best be prepared to deal with her wrath. She is not taking any negative remarks from know-it.

22) Tenten from Naruto

Tenten

Tenten! She’s as cute as her name. Tenten is a powerful woman who is observant and highly opinionated. She won’t back down before sharing her thoughts. Tenten is also a great addition to have during battle!

Tenten is easy-going much to my surprise. She also is loyal and has no problem getting severely injured if it meant saving one of her teammates. How can you not like her?

21) Najenda from Akame Ga Kill

Najenda

32.7/40

What a looker. Do I even have to explain myself? Najenda is the leader of the assassin group called Night Raid. She’s intelligent and level-headed. She used to be a General in the Empire but left because of a corrupt government.

She’s been through hell, yet she still holds onto her morals. I find this trait of hers a lot more attractive than a small nose or large eyes. She’d be more popular than any female celebrity if she existed in our world. I can’t think of a famous example to rival her beauty because I’m so enamored by her right now.

20) Minori Kushieda from Toradora

32.7/40

Am I correct if I say Minori is the anime version of Strawberry Shortcake? Like not completely, but there are similarities, right? Or have I finally lost it?

Minori is an empathetic beauty who cares deeply about her friends. I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t like her at the beginning of the series, but I’ve changed! Don’t come for me! I blame it on internalized misogyny because Minori is a force not to be messed with.

19) Akane Tsunemori from Psycho-Pass

Akane Tsunemori

Doesn’t she look like a dream! Oh my, how I wish to be her. Akane is an idealist with a captivating smile. She’s dangerous, my friends. A terror to the heart.

Akane is the deluxe package; she’s tough as walnut and as compassionate as a puppy. Not only that, but she’s humble! Strong, realist, and humble? Get out of town.

18) Yuki Nagato from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

I don’t know if this counts, but Yuki isn’t a human. She’s a humanoid interface. Well, I don’t care because she is still gorgeous! Her blue hair frames her tiny face perfectly, and I feel like I can trip in her eyes.

She doesn’t talk much, and she doesn’t try to. If she’s feeling it, she at most gives you a nod or a stare. 

17) Secre Swallowtail/Nero from Black Clover

Nero Secre

Why don’t I hear people talking about Secre? She needs some attention, and I’m here to give it to her! Secre is mostly known as Nero in her bird form. If she’s not on top of Asta’s head, she’s probably leading him to important clues.

Secre is calm and serious, which are essential traits to have in a teammate. The Black Bulls are lucky to have such a loyal member!

16) Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Haruhi Suzumiya

33.5/40

This anime will make you scratch your head and pause a few times an episode. The plot is unmatched in terms of complexity—it’s a great show to watch.

Haruhi is a stunning girl who is naturally talented in everything she does. In the beginning, she’s self-centered. She blackmails her classmates into doing what she wants. But she becomes more sympathetic and gentler with her peers as the episodes go by.

15) Nagisa Furukawa from Clannad

Nagisa Furukawa

This anime is an emotional rollercoaster. Without even looking at Nagisa’s looks, her inner kindness translates into a beauty that isn’t that common with most high schoolers. Yes, she’s pretty, but her soul is unfathomable. She isn’t physically strong, but her will is out of this world.

Nagisa didn’t live a fantastic childhood—she spent a good chunk of her life sick in bed. However, her moral compass has never failed her or us.

14) Mayuri Shiina from Steins; Gate

Mayuri is a naïve teenager that acts like she’s two. She’s not the sharpest tool in the shack, but she’s very perceptive. Her ability to dissect emotions and catch onto details has never failed to drop my jaw.

She gets bonus points for her cute bucket hat!

13) Alice Nakiri from Food Wars

ALice Nakiri

Oh my gosh, Alice is a devil. She’s pretty tough, so I guess that works out. Alice is a rascal with a smug demeanor. If she doesn’t get what she wants, she is going to throw a tantrum. Her childishness is a stark contrast with the cool aura she gives off.

12) Rikka Takanashi from Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions

This chick drove me crazy but in the best way! She’s just too lovable! Rikka is clumsy and innocent, which is such a cute combination. She wears an eyepatch, but don’t worry!

There is nothing wrong with her saucer blue eyes. She just suffers from Eight-grader syndrome! Ah, puberty. Every time I think back on it, I have this urge to drop-kick myself. God, I’m glad that era is over.

11) Shirayuki from Snow White with the Red Hair

I love Shirayuki. She looks like a princess with those lovely features of hers, but let me tell you, she’s not waiting for no prince. Instead, she’d rather work hard to stand next to the one she loves. Zen better take good care of her or else I’m coming for his throat.

Her emerald-green eyes and fiery red hair are the perfect depictions of her personality. She’s a determined and brave gal that’s always ready to defend herself. Disney, take some notes.

10) Yona from Yona of the Dawn

Yona

I cheated. Rank 11 equals 10 because both Yona and Shirayuki are so similar to each other. Like Shirayuki, Yona also has red hair. However, Yona is actually a princess. Unfortunately, she loses her Empire. But she doesn’t give up!

Yona is set on learning archery and taking back her rightful throne. She won’t give up without a fight, and that passion is often radiated in her violet eyes.

9) Seishirou Tsugumi from Nisekoi

Seishirou Tsugumi

I can’t believe Claude thinks Seishirou is a guy. The nerve! Being aggressive and strong doesn’t make you a dude.

Seishirou is an extremely loyal girl who easily gets flustered. She’s a straightforward beauty that never hesitates to speak her mind.

8) Touka Kirishima from Tokyo Ghoul

Yes! YES! Touka deserves some appreciation given all that she’s done and been through. Touka has a cold exterior, but you can’t blame her for her history. Once you break through a couple of her walls, she’s a munchkin. Isn’t she just adorable? Kaneki is one lucky man.

7) Yui Hirasawa from K-ON!

Yui

I bet I brought back a bunch of memories with this mention, right? Yui is the main character of K-ON! She’s always looking for fun, and she’s fearless! Whenever she’s on stage, she’d be ready to give it her all.

Yui adores anything that’s cut. All she needs to do is look in the mirror! Ah! I just want to pinch her cheeks! She’s a great person to have by your side—she’s guaranteed to give you a good time.

6) Shinobu Kocho from Demon Slayer

Shinobu

Yes, Demon Slayer has one of the best animations to date with an even better plot. But man, it was hard to pay attention whenever Shinobu had screen time.

Shinobu is sarcastic and hard to read, but she’s drop-dead gorgeous. Let’s be honest everyone. We’d all like to get poisoned by her if it meant breathing the same air as her.

5) Hinata Hyuga from Naruto

Hinata Hyuga

38/40

Hinata is the ultimate waifu. You can’t fight me on this one. She’s definitely a ride or die. She fell in love with Naruto during his darkest days. Every time he was within the same vicinity as her, she’d turn red as tomatoes! Poor guy was oblivious, much to his dismay. Imagine not noticing Hinata’s beauty for years?! She was, and still very much is, into him that hurt me!

Anyway, like most of these stunning girls, she can pack a punch. Don’t mess with her family or she’ll unleash her Byakugan.

4) Mirai Kuriyama from Beyond the Boundary

Mirai Kuryama

38.6/40

Mirai is an adorable kid who is quite an introvert. Dare I say, she’s more awkward than I am. But don’t look down on her! She works hard to make ends meet, however, making money is difficult given that she’s afraid of crossing paths with a Youmu.

She can’t lie for the life of her and she’s a certified klutz. But to me, that just adds to her cuteness.

3) Fubuki from One Punch Man

Y’all had to know this was coming. Fubuki is a TikTok sensation (in our world) and has captured many 3D hearts.

She’s cute and witty. Not only is she attractive, but she can also cause a storm- literally. She’s charismatic and she is well-respected by her group. Yes, she has an ego, but if I had half of her looks, I would too.

2) Ram and Rem from Re: Zero

Ram and Rem
Hairstyle Beauty Cuteness Total
19.8/20

39.8/40

Ram is a lot more outgoing and self-centered than Rem, but hey she’s cute. Her short pink hair accentuates her blood-red eye and pale skin. She goes only by her rules, so she won’t wait for anyone. She’s boss material.

Rem, on the other hand, has cotton candy blue hair and eyes. She’s a sweet and polite cutie who doesn’t have a lot of self-confidence. From the bottom of my heart, I genuinely hope she learns to love herself.

1) Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan

Mikasa Ackerman

40/40

Mikasa has been my favorite female protagonist amongst all the anime I’ve watched. I love her like there is no tomorrow man. Although Mikasa has had a tragic past with a heavier future, she has an innocent side to her. Once in a blue moon, we catch her flustered or blushing– which is 90% Ereh’s fault.

She’s a cinnamon roll. Mikasa is gorgeous, evident by the constant strains in Jean’s neck, but she is OP as heck. She can sharpen a knife with those abs of hers. She’ll cut you to shreds and still make you bow in her presence.

I get it, this list is focused on beauty. However, we tend to forget that passion, drive, courage, and determination can also be seen as beautiful. Although you may agree with the choices or rankings I made, you also have your own opinions on these characters.

Who's your favorite short haired waifu?

And that’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed making it. It was fun creating a list that’s outside of my comfort zone. Anime isn’t just about the plot and climaxes, it’s also an art form. 

These character designs are taken into great consideration. This is what makes it so different from reading a Light Novel because you get to see how the author views their creation.

I’m ranting because it was such a struggle seeing a strong-willed female in a series that is just more than a pretty face. We live in a world where beauty is the only thing considered by a woman. But with anime, it’s much more than that. We get to see a girl struggle her way with life and tell her own story. To me, that’s gorgeous anime.
