30 Of The Best Anime Characters Who Wear Shorts

Clothes and designs in anime characters are sometimes complicated or quite detailed.

But some characters have a simple and plain design.

For example, the lists of anime characters who wear short skirts are listed below.


1.) Aoi Asahina (Dangaronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy-Despair Arc)

word image 133831 1 |

Aoi was always a very active person who liked sports. Throughout her time at school, she participated in various team sports, including track, basketball, softball, volleyball, tennis, and her favourite, competitive swimming.

She has been setting records in swimming competitions since elementary school, earning her a spot as an Olympic cadet.

Although Yuta, her younger brother, was also a skilled and competitive swimmer, he acknowledged that Aoi was the more gifted swimmer.


2.) Artoria Gremm (New The Fruit of Evolution: Before I Knew It My Life Had It Made)

word image 133831 2 |

A seasoned member of the guild of local adventurers in Tillburt. Artoria was known as the Calamity because of her bad luck at birth, which caused her to work alone as an explorer and scare away any friends to keep them safe.

She begins as Seiichi’s girlfriend after receiving a magic ring from him that increases her luck by double to a positive four million. In combat, she employs the double-handed Grand-Axe, which can quadruple her strike power.

In the past, she could use her misfortune to strengthen her body and enter a state known as “Calamity Berserker.” It’s unclear, though, if she can continue to utilize “Calamity Berserker” now that her bad fortune has been erased.

She learns how to utilize ice magic after more training with the Valkyries.


3.) Grizzly (Girl’s Frontline)

word image 133831 3 |

GrizzlyHG is a capable FP HG who can play on almost any squad. She frequently fights with SAAHG and Gr Mk23HG for the same position as an FP buffer, but she typically prevails thanks to her combined FP tile bonus and skill, only falling short of Gr Mk23HG at night.

Her tile formation fits her well in position 4, where she provides FP buffs for the back liners and increases the main tank’s survivability with a sizable Evasion benefit.


4.) Lulune Louie (Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? 3)

word image 133831 4 |

Lulune has light brown Chienthrope ears on the sides of her head, a tail, and black hair. She is dressed in red shorts, boots that match, and a red jacket with a crimson scarf.

She also has a belt, gloves, and a black blouse tucked into her jacket, all in black.


5.) Luna Heela (The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter)

word image 133831 5 |

Described as having amazing attractiveness, Luna is a teenage girl of medium height. She has long legs, tight-rising buttocks, a smooth white complexion, straight silky silver pink hair, and a face that appears to have been meticulously created.

She is an elf, as evidenced by her ears being rather pointed. She is dressed like a nun, so her body line is visible.


6.) Mira Santaje (The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter)

word image 133831 6 |

Twin tails on an unusual redhead. Mira is a lovely young lady with a wonderful face and a sense of style.

She presents a foreign appearance by dressing elegantly and demonstrating resisting abilities.

8.) Revy (Black Lagoon)

word image 133831 8 |

Revy is a Chinese-American woman in her mid-to late-20s with a fair complexion and medium height.

She has amber-brown eyes, burgundy hair (brown hair in the manga), two shoulder-length sidelocks framing her face, a tribal tattoo on her upper right arm that extends up to her neck, a medium-sized bust, and a slightly muscular build that she doesn’t hide in the slightest.

She usually wears her hair in a low loose ponytail with rather large bangs falling onto her forehead on either side.


9.) Sayaka Koyanagi (Gleipnir)

word image 133831 9 |

The person in charge of the vulnerable group. She aims to gather 100 coins so that she can end the game. She founded the gang since she couldn’t collect the money on her own and required the assistance of others to use her power in battle.

She has the power to braid her hair into a choker that, when worn, can merge with the wearer’s skin, making the wearer invisible and killing them if they reveal another person’s secret.

The choker reacts to the wearer’s thoughts by cutting off their head if they believe they have betrayed someone. Because a close friend betrayed her and revealed her secret, she craved this power.


10.) Skorpion (Girl’s Frontline)

word image 133831 10 |

Skorpion is an off-tank SMG with excellent Evasion who relies on her Incendiary Grenade to do significant AOE damage.

Although she can tank to a passable extent thanks to her high Evasion, her extremely low HP and offensive skill keep her from being as efficient a main tank as she may be.

Skorpion’s inadequate tile buff dispersion prevents her from simultaneously buffing many ARs, which lessens her appeal as a main tank. That doesn’t mean that she can’t make up for her shortcomings.

Skorpion has a low base Damage stat, but the high Damage multiplier on her skill, Incendiary Grenade, greatly increases her overall DPS. As it enables her to do considerable AOE damage in combat, this talent is ideal for her suggested Offtank role.


11.) Killua (Hunter x Hunter)

word image 133831 11 |

Gon Freecss’ closest companion, Killua Zoldyck, is currently on the road with Alluka Zoldyck. Killua often dresses in baggy apparel, choosing long-sleeved, dark-colored shirts as his go-to choices.

In the manga and Madhouse animated adaptation, Killua wears long, baggy shorts, while Nippon Animation’s character design made them shorter, ending just above his knees.

At first, Killua is presented as a person who resembles Gon: cheeky, upbeat and brimming with naughty plans. Killua, in contrast to Gon, can be quite impolite to others, especially strangers and the elderly.

word image 133831 12 |

Yayoi Takatsuki, 14 years old, is highly lively and enthusiastic. Although she frequently speaks too loudly and occasionally lacks self-control, her strong character and positive attributes make her the ideal idol.

Yayoi wears scrunchies to hold her long, reddish-brown hair back in two twin tails. She typically dresses in a short denim skirt, an orange long-sleeved top, and a frog wallet (Berochoro), which she carries around her neck.


13.) Envy (Fullmetal Alchemist)
