This info graphic was inspired a Crunchy Roll poll after they got the votes of 10,000 Japanese anime fans of the coolest female anime characters. Below are the quotes I found from the anime that really help them shine as an individual.

10) Akane Tsunemori – Anime: Psycho Pass

Akane Tsunemori

“Society doesn’t always do what’s right. That’s exactly why we ourselves must live virtuous lives.”

9) Revy – Anime: Black Lagoon


“If you cling to being alive, you become frightened and your eyes get clouded. If you don’t have that desire to begin with, you can fight on, right until the end of the world.”

8) Tsukuyo – Anime: Gintama


“Show that you can stop the women you sneer at. Show that you can defend this castle, built upon those women’s tears. Since you’ve forgotten about them, I’ll have to remind you! These women have come to topple a nation!”

7) Mikoto Misaka – Anime: A Certain Magical Index

Mikoto Misaka

“There’s no reason to fall off the cliff while bound by meaningless principles and ideologies. If you’re reaching for the happiness you alone believe in, it’s fine to choose the best arguments for the situation. It doesn’t matter if you have to spit on your own words, as long as it all works out in the end.”

6) Erza Scarlet – Anime: Fairy Tail

Erza Scarlet

“Even if I can’t see. Even if I can’t hear. I have light inside me. The path I walked with my friends, is bringing light to my future. I don’t fear anything! This isn’t even worthy of being called pain! The worst pain is.. The pain of losing your light.”

5) Motoko Kusanagi – Anime: Ghost in the Shell

Motoko Kusanagi

“If we all reacted the same way, we’d be predictable, and there’s always more than one way to view a situation. What’s true for the group is also true for the individual. It’s simple: overspecialize, and you breed in weakness. It’s slow death.”

4) Saber Anime: Fate Series(Fate/Zero, Fate/Stay Night)


“Of what worth is a king who fails to protect the powerless?”

3) Celty Sturluson – Anime: Durarara!!

Celty Sturluson

“What you see isn’t necessarily reality. Everyone has secrets, things they feel that they can’t tell anyone. There’s no such thing as a normal person.”

2) Asuna Yuuki – Anime: Sword Art Online

Asuna Yuuki

“Life isn’t just doing things for yourself. It’s possible to live in such a way that other people’s happiness, makes you happy too.”

1) Mikasa Ackerman – Anime: Attack on Titan

Mikasa Ackerman

“I am strong. Stronger than all of you. Extremely strong. I can kill all the titans out there. Even if I am alone.”
