We all know that shonen anime mostly highlights male characters but that isn’t to say that it has a lack of amazing girls! So, here’s a list of the top 10 best girls in shonen anime!
An aggressive noblewoman of the House of Vermillion, Mereoleona is strong in every sense of the word, rivaling many of the magic knights of Black Clover. Headstrong and competent, even the heroes of the series respect this amazing woman!
This ice princess is a Shinigami of the Gotei 13 who later becomes a captain of the 13th division. This is a testament to her power in itself. Rukia is reliable and calculating, making her a great character to watch!
The protagonist of Kakegurui, Yumeko, is both beautiful and brilliant in the art of gambling. She becomes bloodthirsty from the thrill of gambling, especially when her opponent cheats, and her brilliancy in this anime makes her a hit in my list.
A double-star stone hunter and one of the strongest hunters in the anime, Bisky is not someone you should mess with. Biscuit may look like a child but her true form can send even the toughest fighters packing!
Mikasa tends to fight huge titans with the finesse of a cat. She’s extremely dependable and overpowered. Her calm demeanor and strength is reason enough to list her as being one of the best girls in any shonen series!
Sweet, clumsy, and a ruthless assassin, Yor has tugged on quite a few heartstrings after entering the shonen anime genre with a bang! The Thorn Princess is capable yet polite and quite the motherly figure, she is not one to be messed with!
Emma is one of the smartest kids in the ruthless world of The Promised Neverland. Her wit and physical abilities have protected her from impending doom many times and the way she combats monsters is on par with any shonen hero.
Protagonist of the 6th Bizarre Adventure, Jolyne’s comical aspect and determination (along with the fact that she is a criminal) is exceptionally enjoyable to watch. Her interactions in the prison are great and her fights are a sight to behold. A strong independent woman, she’s a force to be reckoned with!
Nico Robin —One Piece
The mature intellectual of the straw-hat pirates, Robin has a traumatic past which gives her a few tools in her arsenal to survive the modern world. Her story was a tearjerker and watching her growth has embedded her in many fans' hearts for being a perfect girl.
Maki Zenin — Jujutsu Kaisen
Headstrong and straightforward, this non-sorcerer pushes forward with the setbacks she must bear. Having no cursed energy hasn’t stopped Maki from being on the strong spectrum and she’s sure to get stronger as the story progresses!
