Many names in
Here’s a list of
1. Minerva Orland (Fairy Tail)
Minerva starts out as a savage once she’s introduced in
Both beautiful and fairly smart, she fiercely leads the Sabretooth guild and has a low tolerance for BS. This stems from her father.
Design wise she’s clearly Egyptian influenced (North Africa) and has one of the best fashion senses in
2. Miyuki Kobayakawa (You’re Under Arrest)
Miyuki Kobayakawa is a Tokyo police officer who’s intellect helps her solve cases and catch criminals.
The physical and more dangerous aspects are left to her partner who’s skilled in martial arts (Natsumi Tsujimoto).
Miyuki is gentle and kind, but at the same time has boundaries and won’t let anyone cross it, and is not an aggressive person.
You could say she’s the capable, ideal “waifu” of the series.
3. Mera Chisato (Saiki K)
Mera Chisato is poor, and the
Regardless of her upbringing and the fact that she’s financially disadvantaged, she makes the effort, is seriously hard working, and never seems to moan or complain about it.
She’s always eating and is savvy in finding ways to be frugal and sensible.
These aspects make her stand out from everyone else in Saiki K!
4. Minori Kushieda (Toradora)
Minori Kushieda is an important character in Toradora. She’s into Ryuuji Takasu, and vice versa.
For all the comedy this rom com has to offer, Minori is by far the reason this
She has a strong sense of humor, doesn’t hesitate to do things she wants, and has little shame about her actions. But not in a demeaning kind of way.
5. Michiru Inukai (Talentless Nana)
Michiru Inukai has to be the sweetest, cutest, most gentle anime character there’s ever been.
She’s the kind of person who can be considered “too nice” but at the same time it’s a trait you respect them for.
It makes them who they are.
This is Michiru in a nutshell, and she ends up playing an unbelievably relevant role in the Talentless NANA series until the very end.
She’s the kind of character you never knew was needed.
6. Madara Uchiha (Naruto)
Madara hardly needs an introduction, same with the
He’s a man who can be summed up as someone who’s given up on the conventional way of life. And has accepted the harsh realities of what life has to offer.
This becomes his guiding principle and even morals in life. Which is why he goes to the extremes to make things so called “happy and peaceful” for all.
Except his method is more fantasy and superficial than it is true happiness.
7. Mikoto Kibitsu (Peach Boy Riverside)
Mikoto Kibitsu, the “peach boy” of the series. And also one of the major characters in the
Unlike Sally, the female MC, Mikoto’s childhood is far from sunshine and flowers. It’s the definition of traumatic and hellish.
Without spoiling anything, it’s the reason Mikoto is so dedicated to killing so many demons. It’s built on vengeance.
His desire is almost psychotic and unhealthy, but that’s a reflection of his life and how it turned out.
8. Maki Oze (Fire Force)
Maki Oze is one of the greatest martial artists of the
While not the main character, she’s a relevant one with a lot of input in the
Contrary to her appearance and strength, she’s into
In this way she’s like Erza Scarlet but different.
9. Maki Nishikino (Love Live School Idol Project)
Maki Nishikino is an obvious
She likes the Piano. It’s her passion. She plays it well and has been playing the Piano for years.
This is what makes her a good candidate to join the music group U’s and how she becomes part of the team.
She’s hesitant at first, but she eventually comes around despite being shy (though hard working).
10. Mirajane Strauss (Fairy Tail)
Mirajane Strauss is the perfect balance. She’s gentle, feminine, caring and compassionate. But she’s grounded, confident, and won’t let anyone take the piss at her expense.
She’s what Sakura Haruno could never be, and that’s what makes Mirajane one of the most liked female characters out there.
It’s not like she’s not realistic in some ways either. She is.
Some of Mirajane’s fights in
11. Mugino Shizuri (A Certain Scientific Railgun)
Depending on whether you watch A Certain Magical Index or the Railgun series, you’ll see different sides to Mugino.
In Railgun Mugino is the sassy, confident woman she always is when off duty and not working in the dark underground of academy city.
She’s well aware of her looks, and knows how to dress wit style. She’s sexy.
There’s a nasty, almost overbearing and ruthless side to Mugino as well. But that comes with her work in the criminal underworld.
12. Minnie May Hopkins (Gunsmith Cats)
May Hopkins, also called Minnie for how she small she is.
She’s one of the dual main protagonists of Gunsmith Cats, an old school 1990’s series.
Coming from a history of child prostitution, her energetic and outward personality is surprising. She chooses to not focus on her past because of bad memories.
In the present timeline she’s an assistant to Rally Vincent, a bounty hunter in Chicago, USA.
13. Mina Ashido (My Hero Academia)
Mina Ashido, just like May Hopkins, is energetic, but also charismatic, persuasive, and always bouncing off the walls.
She’s one of the most noticeable
With acid as her main quirk, she finds different ways to take advantage of this ability. And is good when it comes to team work.
She’s also good under pressure and is overall a likable MHA character.
14. Mikasa Ackerman (Attack On Titan)
Mikasa Ackerman starts out being relatively weak just like Eren Yaeger. But once they all grow up (season 1) that’s where Mikasa becomes so much stronger.
She has a talent for fighting, and that helps her become adept at killing titans.
Alongside characters like Levi in Attack On Titan, Mikasa has consistently been useful and helpful in the entire series.
She can’t be denied for her role.
15. Miku Nakano (Quintessential Quintuplets)
Miku Nakano is one of the most appreciated characters out of all 5 sisters in this
Miku loves Japanese history and is obsessed with it. The same way a geek can be obsessed with video games or computers.
Because of her lack in confidence, Miku is one of the most relatable sisters in Quintessential Quintuplets.
This is ongoing.
16. Momo Hinamori (Bleach)
Momo Hinamori is another
She’s kind to a fault, which leads to a SPOILER I won’t mention.
Momo is initially one of the weaker Soul Reapers, and is seen this way by others.
This later changes in Bleach when she makes a surprise appearance on the battlefield. And even manages to put the opposition under pressure.
For me it’s a key moment in Bleach that shouldn’t be overlooked.
17. Meme Oshino (Monogatari)
Meme Oshino is the guy Araragi is always approaching for advice, at least in some way shape or form. And on occassion.
He’s a strange man in a shirt who’s always found in a dark room where they tend to meet.
Meme if anything is a wise man who knows a lot about the world, and how to navigate it based on his experiences.
18. Minato Namikaze (Naruto)
Minato is also known as “the flash” because of how fast he is as a Shinobi. In fact he’s the fastest Shinobi there was.
Being the father of
This is true for both the mother and the father of
Minato is a solid character and person overall, and plays a big role even though his role is shorter than others.
19. Mio Akiyama (K-On)
Mio Akiyama is the
Mio is also scared of… Well, supposedly scary things like ghosts, scary stories and anything supernatural. Which she’s also teased for at her expense.
Where Mio excels though is in music. This is where her confidence and personality shines at its fullest.
She becomes more of herself and is what makes her most comfortable (as a shy person).
Mio is also a hard worker and is always the one to take things seriously when everyone else is trying to slack off.
