What is Anime/Manga?
Anime can easily be the most addictive form of comic art. Having showered its readers with spellbinding characters and storylines, the art form continues to churn out new ones from its cavern of infinite imagination. Often offering bizarre and captivating characters, anime often reforms a comic book reader’s perception of stories and characters, introducing them to new horizons of retinal excitement. With big studios sweeping the rights for major anime’s and giving them the much deserved big-screen rendition, one can only hope they serve justice to the art form.
Anime is a term for a style of Japanese comic book and video cartoon animation in which the main characters have large doe-like eyes.
Anime is the prevalent style in Japanese comic books or manga. In Japan, the comic book is a popular form of entertainment for adults as well as for younger audiences. Story lines are often very sophisticated and complex and extend into episodic series. Typical anime themes or genres include Ninja and other martial arts; the supernatural or horror story; the romance; and science fiction including robots and space ships. Foils for the main characters, including robots, monsters, or just plain bad people, often lack the doe-eyed quality.
Also adding to the emotional feel of anime are the technical animation tricks like dramatic closeups and zooms, intense lighting, and brilliant colors. But beyond its distinctive visual look, anime has endeared itself into the hearts of fans because of its complex characters and engaging plotlines.
The body proportions of human anime characters tend to accurately reflect the proportions of the human body in reality. The height of the head is considered by the artist as the base unit of proportion. Head heights can vary, but most anime characters are about seven to eight heads tall. Anime artists occasionally make deliberate modifications to body proportions to produce super deformed characters that feature a disproportionately small body compared to the head; many super deformed characters are two to four heads tall. Some anime works like Crayon Shin-chan completely disregard these proportions, in such a way that they resemble caricatured Western cartoons.
A common anime character design convention is exaggerated eye size. The animation of characters with large eyes in anime can be traced back to Osamu Tezuka, who was deeply influenced by such early animation characters as Betty Boop, who was drawn with disproportionately large eyes. Tezuka is a central figure in anime and manga history, whose iconic art style and character designs allowed for the entire range of human emotions to be depicted solely through the eyes. The artist adds variable color shading to the eyes and particularly to the cornea to give them greater depth. Generally, a mixture of a light shade, the tone color, and a dark shade is used. Cultural anthropologist Matt Thorn argues that Japanese animators and audiences do not perceive such stylized eyes as inherently more or less foreign. However, not all anime characters have large eyes. For example, the works of Hayao Miyazaki are known for having realistically proportioned eyes, as well as realistic hair colors on their characters.
Top 15 Most Beautiful Female Anime Characters In History
1. Akeno Himejima
Akeno Himejima is a fictional character in the High School DxD series. Akeno Himejima is a first-year college student at Kuoh Academy and one of the many female protagonists of High School DxD. She is the daughter of Baraqiel, a Fallen Angel Cadre, who is the current Vice Governor General of Grigori and Shuri Himejima, a member of the Himejima Clan. She is Rias Gremory's Queen as well as her best friend. Akeno is one of Kuoh Academy's Two Great Ladies alongside Rias. She is also one of Issei's fiancées.
Akeno is a beautiful young woman with a voluptuous figure, very long black hair and violet eyes. Her hair is usually tied in a long ponytail, reaching all the way down to her legs with two strands sticking out from the top and sloping backward, with an orange ribbon keeping it in place.
Like most of the girls at Kuoh Academy, she wears the customary Kuoh Academy girls' school uniform, along with black calf-length socks.
In the anime, during battles, she often transforms her clothes into a traditional miko attire, consisting of a white haori with red accents, a red hakama, and a pair of zōri with white tabi.
When she first revealed herself as a Fallen Angel in front of Issei in Volume 4, she reveals one Devil wing and one Fallen Angel wing. This later changes to six Fallen Angel wings with the aid of two bracelets (no longer required) given to her by Azazel. In True Volume 2, it changes to eight Fallen Angel wings. In this form, it is stated by Yuuto Kiba that she looks like a high tier Fallen Angel; possibly a Cadre.
2. Mio Akiyama
Mio Akiyama (秋山アキーヤマ 澪ミオ) is one of the 5 main characters in K-ON! She is a passionate and technical left-handed musician and writer who serves as the bassist, second vocalist and main lyricist of the band Ho-kago Tea Time. She is a kind and warm girl, albeit very shy and sensitive. Despite her timid streak she often finds herself as the voice of reason amongst her bandmates, who often rely on her sensibility when in trouble.
Mio is very reserved and bashful by nature. She is private and soft-spoken, even amongst close friends, and seems to enjoy time alone, which she often dedicates to songwriting. She has been socially anxious and self-conscious since she was small, hence falling prey to a young Ritsu's teasing, and typically retreated into the sanctuary of her books. She struggles to interact with strangers, has few friends outside the Light Music Club (despite her popularity), and is strikingly sensitive to attention from others. She also embarrasses very easily and does not easily live down mortifying moments. Her bandmates' antics and jokes are hence often at her expense. Mio specifically chose the bass guitar as her instrument because it is not as conspicuous as the guitar.
Mio is warm-hearted and in touch with her and others' emotions, possessing a very sensitive side that reveals itself more than she would like. Her kindness and empathy is possibly best demonstrated in her sister-like treatment of Azusa. She even has a heart to heart with the band's new recruit, who she hardly knew at the time, hoping to make her feel welcomed. Mio is very aware and expressive of her feelings, though not always intentionally, be it her appreciation of her friends or her passion for the bass guitar. She is also the first to shed tears following their final school festival concert. She also seems to have a knack for offering her friends comforting words when they are distressed, particularly when it comes to Ritsu. Mio's softer side comes out in her, at times peculiar, writing and lyrics, which often feature cutesy and overly girlish themes and lines. Her weakness is the macabre and horrific, and she can be incapacitated with fear by stories involving the supernatural, horror, and gore. She also has trypophobia, an irrational fear of collections of small holes.
Mio is diligent, responsible, and sober, especially when contrasted with her happy-go-lucky bandmates. She is academically inclined, always ranking within the top 10 students of her grade, and a keen reader and writer. She is a very dedicated musician and is technically advanced at the bass guitar. She is very driven when it comes to the Light Music Club and, in her own words, is committed to the club as if it were her boyfriend. She even takes over lead vocals from Yui when she needs to, despite strongly preferring to solely play bass. Her bandmates often turn to her when faced with academic troubles or when curious about musical technique.
Throughout high school, Mio gradually comes to grips with her anxieties and insecurities. She establishes herself as the voice of reason amongst her bandmates when their carefree ways get the better of them and becomes the most vocal about the band's direction and motivation. She comes into her own as a musician and composer, stepping up as the band's main songwriter and embracing the dual roles of bass and vocals despite her fear of standing in the spotlight. She also becomes more comfortable on stage and more open to the attention that may come with it. Understanding Azusa's reservations about the Light Music Club, Mio was the first to open up to her, convinces her to remain in the club, and stands up for Azusa's ambitions to her fellow bandmates. Mio even finds herself acting like an older sister figure to Azusa.
During her final year of high school, Mio begins to loosen up more, concentrate on the present, and give in to the hijinks of her friends, which she previously viewed as immature. She comes to appreciate the affection of others, such as that of her fan club, although it still leaves her flustered. Mio starts to consider coming of age and the ephemerality of her high school years more than any of her bandmates. She embraces events such as the summer rock music festival to an extent that even surprises Ritsu and voices an almost childish wish to keep playing with the band forever. She even chooses to take a large step outside of her comfort zone in performing a lead role in the school play, albeit with initial difficulties. After contemplating hard about what she values and wants, with university entrance exams approaching fast, Mio resolves that her friendships with Ritsu, Yui, and Tsumugi are too dear to risk. She boldly turns down a distinguished recommendation for a university to apply to the same women's university as her bandmates, in hopes of spending her university years alongside those that matter most to her.
|Anime and manga artists often draw from a common canon of iconic facial expression illustrations to denote particular moods and thoughts. These techniques are often different in form than their counterparts in Western animation, and they include a fixed iconography that is used as shorthand for certain emotions and moods.
3. Chika Fujiwara
Chika Fujiwara (藤原 千花, Fujiwara Chika) is a fictional character in the manga series Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, created by Aka Akasaka. Depicted in the story as coming from a prestigious family of politicians, Chika is the student council secretary of Shuchiin Academy, where she works closely with her fellow student council members, vice president Kaguya Shinomiya and president Miyuki Shirogane. Due to her innocent and cheerful attitude, Chika seems to be completely unaware to the psychological "battles" that occur between Kaguya and Miyuki as they constantly try to get each other to confess their love.
In the anime adaptation, Chika is voiced by Konomi Kohara in Japanese and by Jad Saxton in the English version. In the live action films Kaguya-sama: Love Is War and its sequel Kaguya-sama: Love Is War 2, she is portrayed by Japanese actress and former singer Nana Asakawa. Chika is considered one of the most popular characters of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War and her personality has been well received by both fans and critics.
In February 2020, Aka Akasaka, the author of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, said in an interview that Chika's role in the manga is mainly to serve as a foil to Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane, popping up when the two of them are in the middle of their scheming and then she sows chaos through her silliness, in addition to stating that the relationships between Chika, Shirogane and Kaguya basically drive the plot. Also, Akasaka was asked why Chika has no monologues and he replied, "Fujiwara is exactly who she is. She doesn't harbor any darkness. The fact that she doesn't have monologues was just an early idea of mine; at the time, I felt it was better to leave a little mystery somewhere. But now that the series has run for so long, that's not really necessary anymore. I draw Fujiwara like she's everyone's heroine. Please feel free to like her." A month earlier, during another interview, when asked about whether he resembles any of his characters, Akasaka said that he is like Chika in that he loves board games, and that he feels like her and has her personality when friends and family visit.

There have been many iconic anime characters throughout the course of time who have practically become legends. In this post, we’ll be discussing a list ...
4. Madoka Kaname

Madoka Kaname (Japanese: 鹿目 まどか, Hepburn: Kaname Madoka) is the title character and one of two main protagonists of the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica, alongside Homura Akemi. Madoka is a kind and gentle 14-year-old girl who initially lives a normal and happy life, but is then faced with the decision of becoming a magical girl. She aspires to become a magical girl after witnessing her senior classmate Mami Tomoe fighting against surreal monsters known as witches in order to protect people. In Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion, where she is the deuterangonist, Madoka appears as a magical girl and fights with her friends against new monsters known as nightmares. She appears in most Puella Magi Madoka Magica related-media, including manga, novels and video games.
In developing the character, writer Gen Urobuchi imagined the series' protagonist as being a girl with a "cheerful and idealistic" personality, in contrast to his usual writing style. Madoka was designed by Ume Aoki, who used the character Yuno from her manga Hidamari Sketch as an initial basis. Although her theme color was intended to be white, it was changed to pink. Aoki also noted the difficulty of drawing Madoka due to her double ponytail hair. Madoka is voiced by Aoi Yūki in Japanese, and Christine Marie Cabanos in English.
Madoka has ranked highly in various polls, placing second in the Best Female Category at the Newtype Anime Awards in 2011, as well ranking seventh in a top 10 anime heroines poll conducted by NHK in 2013. Her character has been well received by fans and critics, with reviewers praising her character transformation and resonance with the series' other characters, particularly her relationship with Homura Akemi. However, her character has also received criticism for appearing weak and lacking development until near the end of the series, with one reviewer suggesting that she could have instead played a larger role.
5. Rias Gremory

Rias Gremory (リアス・グレモリー, Riasu Guremorī) is a fictional character who appears in the light novel, anime, and manga series High School DxD authored by Ichiei Ishibumi. Rias is the main love interest of the main character, Issei Hyoudou. Rias is a high school student at Kuoh Academy, which, unbeknownst to most students, contains angels, devils, and fallen angels as part of its student population. High School DxD is set in a world where there is constant battle between these three main factions (angels, devils, fallen angels), though the war has died down as of late, and many famous angels and devils have already ceased to exist.
A devil of the Gremory clan, one of the highest-ranking devil families, Rias initially saves Issei after he was attacked by a fallen angel, Raynare. Issei wakes up the next morning, thinking that the events that occurred were all just a dream, but then notices Rias naked in his room. Rias reveals to Issei her true identity as a devil and says that as a result of his death at the hands of Raynare, she has reincarnated him as a devil, becoming his new master in the process. Rias is the head of Kuoh Academy's Occult Research school club, where Issei, Rias, and the club members interact with various groups and organizations, some of which are run by devils who compete against them in sanctioned combat matches called Rating Games, where the characters have been assigned positions akin to chess pieces.
Rias has received mostly positive critical reception. Reviewers have complimented the character's design, personality, and relationship with Issei, as well as her physical attractiveness. Her backstory has also been the recipient of some praise, though some reviewers have critiqued her character as uninteresting. Rias has achieved popularity in anime and manga fandom, and has appeared on numerous lists and surveys of the most popular anime and manga characters. Numerous High School DxD merchandise featuring Rias have also been released, including figurines and video games. The character is also a popular choice amongst cosplayers.
6. Yumeko Jabami

Yumeko Jabami (蛇喰 夢子) is the main protagonist of Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler. She's a second-year transfer student at Hyakkaou Private Academy and the classmate of Ryota Suzui and Yumeko’s family is aligned with the family of Kirari Momobami that challenges her for Hyakkaou Private Academy.
Yumeko is a tall, beautiful girl with black hair styled in a hime-cut and burgundy eyes; as soon as she becomes thrilled, her eyes turn bright red. Additionally, she has pink glossed lips and a curvy figure.
She wears the standard uniform issued to female students at Hyakkaou Private Academy: a red blazer with black trim lining the cuffs and collar, white button-up dress shirt and black tie, black stockings, and brown loafers. Additionally, her nails are painted red, and she wears a silver ring on her left thumb.
7. Erza Scarlet
|Photo: Fairy Tail Wiki
Erza Scarlet is the female deuteragonist of the anime/manga series Fairy Tail. She is an S-class Mage from the Guild Fairy Tail. Like most Fairy Tail members, she shows great loyalty and dedication to Makarov and the guild. During her childhood, she was a slave in the Tower of Heaven, along with her childhood friend and love interest Jellal Fernandes.
She is voiced by Sayaka Ōhara in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Colleen Clinkenbeard in the English version.
Erza is a tall, very beautiful young girl with long scarlet hair and dark brown eyes. She lost her right eye as a little girl and now has an artificial one which was created by Porlyusica. She has a slender, voluptuous figure that Lucy Heartfilia described as "amazing". Her most common attire consists of a custom-made armour by Heart Kreuz smiths, a blue skirt, and black boots. Her Fairy Tail stamp is blue and is located on the middle of her left upper arm. Erza's specialty in Requip Magic allows her to requip not only armours, but different outfits as well, allowing her to change her attire at any given time. And like most women in the series, she has large breasts.
The character is named after Eru from Mashima's one-shot manga Fairy Tale, which served as a pilot for Fairy Tail. Mashima initially designed her to only shed tears from one eye due to a defect with her artificial eye, but he eventually abandoned this aspect after accidentally drawing some scenes where Erza has tears flowing from both eyes. He also said that he often forgets what Erza's armor looks like, and changes the design every time she appears.
|Hair in anime is often unnaturally lively and colorful or uniquely styled. The movement of hair in anime is exaggerated and "hair action" is used to emphasize the action and emotions of characters for added visual effect. Poitras traces hairstyle color to cover illustrations on manga, where eye-catching artwork and colorful tones are attractive for children's manga. Despite being produced for a domestic market, anime features characters whose race or nationality is not always defined, and this is often a deliberate decision, such as in the Pokémon animated series.
8. Rika Takanashi
Rikka Takanashi (小鳥遊たかなし 六りっ花か Takanashi Rikka?) is the female protagonist in the Japanese light novel/anime series Chūnibyō Demo Koi ga Shitai!.
She is the founder and President of the Far Eastern Magic Napping Society of Summer.
She is voiced by Maaya Uchida in the Japanese dub, and Margaret McDonald in English.
After having to face the traumatic tragedy of losing a parent, Rita falls deep into the world of delusions. She consciously starts believing in fantasy as a part of her life. Rita uses her notorious ‘eye patch’ and frilly parasol to battle diabolic forces, and everything is authentic for her as she swims in her world of delusions. But it’s important to mention that her fantasies are a result of her traumatic past and the deep-rooted desire to find her father. Rita may not be honest with herself, but the grief that derives the delusional misadventures of the teenager is definitely understandable.
Rikka Takanashi was described as having black hair and black eyes in the novel. In the anime her hair was drawn as a dark purple-blue and is tied with a yellow ribbon, with cyan colored eyes and wears a yellow color contact lens on her right eye, over which she wears a medical eyepatch. She often wears a pair of roller shoes, which she uses in order to increase mobility and make tricks. Her idiot hair (ahoge) occasionally reacts to her mood, in a comedic matter, sometimes moving with sound effects.
Throughout the series she is primarily seen to be wearing a school uniform that consists of black school blazer with a white dress shirt underneath it, tied with a red bowtie, wearing a red tartan skirt with small while frills embellished with a cross hanging on the left side of her skirt to which that she does not wear the uniform up to school standards (once mentioned in the movie by her teacher), she then switches to a sleeveless version due to it being summer. She also has her fantasy weapon of choice: a frilly parasol which she wields as a sword remains concealed on her left leg. During her delusional operations she often dresses in a mostly-black gothic lolita dress.
9. Kosaki Onodera
Ever had a crush on someone but couldn’t reveal it because you thought it would jeopardize your friendship with them? Well, here is another victim of the same scenario- Kosaki Onodera. She is one of the pivotal characters of the anime series ‘Nisekoi.’ Kosaki’s acquaintance with her classmate Raku blooms into a romance, but both of them keep their feelings to themselves in fear of ruining their friendship. Unlike her classmates, she struggles academically but works hard to do better. Kosaki’s timid nature wins her the love and care of numerous other characters, including her younger sister, and they stand by her side in times of trouble.
Kosaki Onodera (小野寺 小咲 Onodera Kosaki), later Kosaki Miyanagi (宮城 小咲, Miyanagi Kosaki), is one of the main characters of the Nisekoi series. She is the daughter of Nanako Onodera, the older sister of Haru Onodera and one of the love interests of Raku Ichijō.
Kosaki comes from a family of pastry chefs; all of whom specialize in making and decorating candies. However, her father is missing for the most part of the series and is hinted to have his own work to deal with. Thus, Kosaki has since been living with her eccentric mother and her feisty younger sister in their Japanese candy shop. Ironically, despite this environment, she grows up to be very timid by nature.
At one point during her childhood, Kosaki became acquainted with Raku Ichijō, Chitoge Kirisaki, Marika Tachibana, Yui Kanakura and Seishirō Tsugumi where they soon grew to be close friends with Raku in particular, whom she was in love with. In the day of their parting, the group proposes to give each other several keys and a locket (belonging to Raku) as a testament to their promise to meet again in the future, with the owner of the true key capable of unlocking the locket be the person Raku would marry. After Chitoge overheard that Raku and Kosaki are mutually in love and seeing their lover's mark carved on a rock she approached them and gave Kosaki the true key. As such, Raku and Kosaki declared their promise of marriage for the future and stored a pair of letters for each other along with two paired rings in the pendant.
As the memories of their childhood soon fade away, Kosaki has also gone to the same middle school as Ruri Miyamoto (Kosaki's best friend) and Raku.

10. Kazari Uiharu
|Photo: Heroes Wiki - Fandom
Uiharu Kazari (初春 飾利 Uiharu Kazari?) is a minor character debuted in Toaru Majutsu no Index before being expanded as a supporting character in Toaru Kagaku no Railgun. She is a Level 1 Academy City student, and along with her colleague and friend Shirai Kuroko, is a member of the student composed law enforcement organization, Judgment.
Uiharu Kazari is a small girl who sports short black hair and has golden-brown eyes. She has thick eyebrows but her most striking feature is her headband made out of artificial flowers. In the manga she often wears a facemask because she is easily afflicted by colds and flu.
Uiharu is usually shy and humble but always friendly. She is also shown to be equally high-spirited as her friend Saten Ruiko. She admits that she is composed most of the time because of a so-called "limit" she places on herself. Without that limit, she is very energetic and can be airheaded at times as well, as shown during Tokiwadai Dormitory's Festival. Moreover, she is intrigued and interested in the Ojou-sama lifestyle, as shown with her trying to impress Kuroko with her tea making abilities, as well the above mentioned excitability of her person during the Tokiwadai Midsummer Festival. Although she is incapable of normal combat like Kuroko, she still has a strong sense of justice, being a member of Judgment, and will do her utmost to do her duty.
Apparently, she is an animal lover, as she was the only one of her friends that wasn't scared of Ekatrina, Kongou Mitsuko's pet boa constrictor, and even played with it.
Her vulnerability to flu is not shown in the anime version of Railgun, though this later disappeared in later chapters of the manga. The running gag on her not managing to eat her sweets ended in the Railgun anime as well.
Uiharu uses polite Japanese almost exclusively, regardless of mood or standing; she addresses everyone by their family name accompanied with the honorific -san, even Saten and Haruue, and she always uses desu and the polite forms of verbs.
11. Nadego Sengoku
Nadeko Sengoku (千石 撫子, Sengoku Nadeko) is Tsukihi Araragi's childhood friend and an acquaintance of Tsukihi's brother Koyomi Araragi. She was a victim of a painful curse that caused an invisible snake to coil around her and manifest scars that resemble snake scales. During her attempts to cure herself of the curse, she met Koyomi once again after not seeing him for a long time.
She is the narrator of Otorimonogatari, Nademonogatari, as well as arcs in Yoimonogatari, Ougimonogatari, and Shinomonogatari. She is the titular protagonist of four main arcs: Nadeko Snake, Nadeko Medusa, Nadeko Draw and Nadeko Around, and three minor arcs: Nadeko Pool, Nadeko Mirror, and Kimi to Nadekko!.
‘Bakemonogatari’ is an extensive series that focuses on a cluster of characters engaged in vampirism, curses, and manipulation. Nadego is a shy schoolgirl with a painful past as she was cursed by a snake when she was young. However, in spite of all the misfortunes, she is a good-natured girl who is loyal towards her friends and loved ones. But as the story progresses, the soft-spoken high school girl undergoes a surprising transformation that will leave you dumbfounded. As much as viewers love her inherent innocence, she is also quite popular in the anime fandom for her cute looks.
12. Elucia de Lute Ima “Elsie”
|Photo: The World God Only Knows Wiki
Elucia de Lute Ima (エリュシア・デ・ルート・イーマ, Eryushia De Rūto Īma), more commonly referred to as Elsie (エルシィ, Erushī), is the deuteragonist of The World God Only Knows. She is a New Devil from New Hell and is an agent of the Runaway Spirit Squad, an organization of New Hell Devils whose purpose is to capture actively dangerous souls.
At the end of the story, Elsie later officially became part of Katsuragi's family and changed her name into Eri Katsuragi.
In Elsie's first appearance in the oneshot, her hair was held in a high ponytail while she wore a dark kimono with a sash that partially revealed her cleavage. She also had a scythe.
Elsie has long, dark hair that is frequently kept in a ponytail and becomes wavy when loosened. Similar to many Runaway Spirit Squad members, she is almost always equipped with a hagoromo — a multi-purpose raiment that serves as the primary tool of the Runaway Spirit Squad, a runaway spirit sensor (usually on her head), and a contract collar on her neck.
At home or outside, Elsie wears a short, violet kimono complemented by lavender thigh-high toeless socks and wooden sandals. When at school, she wears the standard Mai-High uniform for girls, along with pink thigh-high socks. In later chapters, Elsie wears purple ribbons in place of her socks.
During Elsie's time as Kanon, Haqua assists her in imitating Kanon's appearance, the notable difference being Elsie's dark hair, which remains so. Even though Elsie's hair remains dark-colored, the cloaking magic cast upon Elsie still makes her appear just like Kanon, according to Haqua.
As sleep wear she wore a pink shirt with pink pyjamas.

13. Taiga Aisaka
|Photo: Toradora Wiki - Fandom
Taiga Aisaka (逢坂 大河, Aisaka Taiga) is the main female protagonist of the Toradora! series. Due to her often snapping at others in brutal ways and her short stature, she is given the nickname "Palmtop Tiger."
Even though Taiga is a teenager, her very short height makes her look like a younger child. Ami frequently teases her about this. Taiga has long, curly light brown hair (inherited from her mother) that falls past her waist in waves, with large, dark amber eyes which are inherited from her father. She is "flat-chested" and is very ashamed about it, but often she makes up for this fact by her typically constant glare or menacing words. She was also describe as insanely beautiful, by others.
Taiga is usually seen wearing the school uniform, or long dresses, when outside. She wears long coats on top of dresses and is seen wearing a pair of stockings under long coats. She is a very well-dressed girl, coming from a rich family, and even her pajamas are elegant.
The female protagonist of ‘Toradora!,’ Taiga is a young adult who is nicknamed the Palmtop Tiger because of her regular violent and hilarious outburst of anger. Often teased for her short stature, she struggles to handle domestic chores and always requires some sort of assistance. Although she is moody and will probably punch anyone who tries to complement and embarrass her, the adorable looks of the female protagonist of the romantic-comedy series have won millions of hearts. The short-tempered teenager may not be the most level-headed or sweet character on the list; Taiga is undoubtedly adorable and charming.
14. Sagiri Izumi
Sagiri Izumi (和泉 紗霧) is the younger step-sister of Masamune Izumi. Shut in her room all day, she is secretly the illustrator for her brother's light novels and is popular on the web, though nobody knows that she is actually a 13-year old girl.
Sagiri was taught to draw by her mother at a young age, and by the time she was around the age of nine, she became Masamune's illustrator. A year before the events of the novel, Sagiri met Masamune, though she didn't realize that he was the author she was working with despite the similar names. After her mother died, she temporarily stopped drawing and going outside. After seeing a live video of someone drawing images and getting response, Sagiri became interested in live video feeds and started drawing images on a camera disguising her face and voice so that nobody would recognize her or learn about her. She eventually started to interact with people who saw her video feed (while still disguised). At some point, Masamune was too busy to cook and she chose to go hungry rather than go outside her room to get food.
Sagiri is tremendously cute, a young little girl with porcelain skin, long silver hair tied with two small pink ribbons at the sides of her head, two small pink ribbons at the end of her hair, and a big pink ribbon at the end of the hair at the back. She has big blue eyes. She wears pink pajamas, and sometimes has a dark green hoodie on over them. She also wears pink slippers with bows on them.
She usually has a calmed expression on her face, but sometimes she is seen embarrassed or smiling.

Nezuko Kamado (Japanese: 竈門 禰豆子, Hepburn: Kamado Nezuko) is a fictional character in Koyoharu Gotouge's manga Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. Nezuko and her older brother Tanjiro Kamado are the sole survivors of an incident where they lost their entire family to demons, with Nezuko being transformed into a demon, but still surprisingly showing signs of human emotion and thought. After an encounter with Giyu Tomioka, a demon slayer, Tanjiro begins his quest to help his sister turn into human again and avenge the death of his family.
Nezuko's character was created to make Tanjiro a more innovative character due to her identity being of a demon. Initial critical response to Nezuko was positive due to how unconventional it was for the narrative to have her kind of character as a demon as well as how she displays more powers to fight across the series. She has also been a popular character within the Demon Slayer fanbase, appearing in an issue from the Weekly Playboy magazine.
The Rise of Japanese Anime: $22.1 billion
According to the Japan Animation Association, the industry has doubled its total market value to $22.1 billion. And this has been achieved in a period of just 10 years. Anime is increasingly becoming a form of mass entertainment without borders.
The rise of Japanese anime grew by almost 120% since 2020. This rapid growth makes it one of the fastest-growing content genres during the pandemic. This data was extracted by the consulting firm Parrot Analytics. The company measures its demand metrics by combining consumer data with social media activity, independent research and social video.
Partner at Japanese indie distributor The Klockworx, Kana Koido, said during a recent panel discussion at the Far East Film Festival, “Even in times of pandemic, the anime market continued to thrive,” “Japan is such a unique market, where even though the total box office in 2020 was almost half of what it had been in 2019, there was still this rare content that did better than ever.”
The determining factor explaining the rise of Japanese anime has been the wide acceptance of the genre globally. Anime was for a long time exclusive content for otaku. These fans were a minority and were classified as social misfits. Now things have changed, and mainstream society has embraced the genre, making it a global phenomenon.
