Top 10 Female Anime Characters Of All Time

Do you know that Anime is actually an abbreviation of the word "Animation"? In Japan, the word is used to refer to all animation. However, outside of Japan, it has become the catch-all term for animation from Japan. Over the last 40 years, it has become an international phenomenon, attracting millions of fans and being translated into many languages. Some of the original anime programs, like “Dragon Ball” (which began airing in 1986), had more male leads than female, but then they paved the way for the best anime women that you know and love today.
Anime fans always have for their own a list of greatest female anime characters ever, for a variety of reasons: their power, kind behavior or super beauty. Just Anime Things now will show you the top 10 best female anime characters, from the strong, cool to the sweet ones. Then you should not hesitate to tell us which ones of these popular anime characters are your favorite!

1. Saber from Fate/stay night

As an agile and powerful warrior, Saber is loyal, independent, and reserved; she appears cold but is actually suppressing her emotions to focus on her goals. Her class is considered the "most outstanding", with excellent ratings in all categories.
She is most loved for her design, especially in her full attire. A girl who's sporting an awesome golden sword and a well-designed, badass armored outfit that doesn't try to show off any blatant fanservice that MMORPGs, RPGs, and anime always do. She's the first and foremost warrior. A knight that's ready to kick some ass.

2. Mikasa Ackerman from Attack On Titan

Mikasa Ackerman is the adoptive sister of Eren Yeager and the main female protagonist of the series: Attack On Titan.

3. Hinata Hyuga from Naruto

Hinata Hyuga is a kunoichi and the former heiress of the Hyūga clan. Because of her meek disposition, her father doubted that she was suited for the responsibilities of leading the clan, much less life as a ninja, leading him to disinherit her. Nonetheless, Hinata persevered and from observation of Naruto Uzumaki especially, Hinata found both an example to follow to be more assertive, and a person to love. Through her membership with Team 8, she sought to become strong enough to change herself, if even a little at a time.
Many people love her because she has such a wonderful heart and has so much determination. She isn't afraid to try and will always be there by Naruto's side. Her little shy blushes and how she plays with her fingers when she is shy is just the cutest!!

Her love of money stems from her childhood, where she lived a poor life and was often upset at having little wealth despite the love of her adopted mother.

She is loved not only for her sexual beauty but also for her manner.

She may be small and cute, but she can more than hold her own in a fight which she proves over and over again. She is very agile and dexterous, avoiding her enemies’ strikes with really cool acrobatics and evasive maneuvering. She often uses two pistols that are attached to a device on her back that gives her extra steam-powered abilities to jump higher and move faster, and after taking in how many kabane she has to fight, she will set a personal timer for how long it will take her to destroy them all. Quite often, Mumei is able to do it within the time limit that she sets for herself! Even when she isn’t using her pistols, she can be seen beheading kabane by kicking them with her sandals that contain a hidden blade, and other cool hand-to-hand combat moves. Don’t let Mumei’s cute appearance deceive you – she’s a badass, and definitely one of the coolest girls in recent anime!

That doesn't stop her from helping her friend Mamori fight against their enemies to ensure that the two survive, though! Her strong friendship and loyalty, abilities as a Liberator, and intriguing personality are what land her on our list of the coolest girls in anime. She does what she has to do what she feels is right and won't let anything stop her, and that is incredibly cool.
