Well apart from intuition and the basics, no girl of the same age has the same tastes or the same mind.
So with that said, I’ll focus on:
animefor 13 year old girls. Animesome 13 year old girls would be interested in. Animethat aren’t excessively violent, twisted, or sexual.
- Has characters who are good role models, inspirational, etc.
And things of that nature….
Let’s get started.
1. Liz And The Blue Bird
Liz And The Blue Bird is an anime movie, not a series. It’s by Kyoto Animation and was released in 2018.
The theme is hidden in the title. The story of Liz and the blue bird plays a significant role in the actual characters in the series.
Mizore is an Oboe player (an instrument). She’s the quiet type who’s really introverted and isn’t the most expressive.
Nozome, a flute player comes into the picture and things start to take off from there.
2. A Certain Scientific Railgun
A Certain Scientific Railgun is an underrated
With 3 seasons, OVA’S, and
Mikoto Misaka is the main character, a celebrity, and like many, she’s an esper in a place called Academy City.
Being one of the most
She’s a solid female role model, is modest, has a good head on her shoulders, and is written well like many of Railgun’s characters.
3. Toilet Bound Hanako Kun
Toilet Bound Hanako Kun is a bit of a ghost series focusing on spirits, and other supernatural elements.
Hanako is a popular spirit who’s believed to be a girl, but he’s a short boy. Nene Sakura, the MC is shackled to Hanako after making a naive wish.
Expect very light romance, some intense episodes, worthwhile comedy, and some of the best anime art styles.
4. Bodacious Space Pirates
Bodacious Space Pirates is exactly what it sounds like. Marika Kato, the MC becomes a space pirate with a reluctant friend as they travel throughout space.
They are of course teenagers, and they’re not real pirates in the serious sense of the word.
Being the leader of the Bentenmaru, Marika makes each journey in space fun with her energetic personality and her interests in pirates.
Planetarian is about Hoshino Yumemi, a robot girl who seems to be abandoned but not in the literal sense.
A guy named “Junker” comes across a building and finds Yumemi within it. But there’s no one around but her.
She insists on showing Junker the planetarian after talking him to death, and sharing her desire to serve humans as she’s designed to do.
Where the story leads becomes more emotional and in a way, darker than expected from what you see on the surface.
6. Lovely Complex
Lovely Complex focuses on modern stereotypes we have in society.
- Tall girls = not feminine.
- Short boys – not manly.
Risa Koizumi, one half of the main characters is a taller than usual girl. She’s teased for it.
Otani, the male MC is shorter than usual, and he faces his fare share of criticism.
Both characters are insecure about their unique differences, and they end up becoming interested in each other as an result.
The main thing stopping their eventual romance is the notions and ideas society has spoon fed them about what couples “should” look like and so on.
Lina Inverse is the leader of this series and the main female lead. Seocndary characters are Gourry, her “knight”, and other characters like Emilia and Zelgadis.
Lina lives her own life the way she wants, travels where she wants, goes on adventures, and hunts for treasures. Usually to the point of making enemies of everyone.
The action in this series is spot on, but the comedy is in its own lane.
The 4th wall breaks and meta dialogue is one of the original influences.
8. Ryuugajou Nanana
Ryuugajou Nanana is about Nanana, the purple haired girl and her “hidden” treasures.
In the main story she’s now a ghost bound to a room she can’t seem to escape or move on from. This room is in an apartment now rented out by Jugo Yama.
The long and short of it is Jugo and other characters he teams up with go treasure hunting for Nanana’s buried treasures on the island.
Each treasure has its own unique function, supernatural ability, and other mysterious uses.
It’s a pretty obscure
9. Mitsuboshi Colors
We all love
Mitsuboshi Colors is the embodiment of
10. Denpa Kyoushi
The Ultimate Otaku Teacher is about Junichirou Kagami, a teacher with a self proclaimed disease called Y.D.
Y.D = I can only do what I Yearn to do.
It’s a running joke but also an important life lesson from start to finish in the
Many characters, some of who are introverts, and many who are girls can teach you a lot about life since the
11. Bamboo Blade
Bamboo Blade is one of the few Kendo
Tamaki Kawazoe is one of the shortest characters of this series, and is one of the seemingly
It’s true. Tamaki is this way, but she’s also fierce and
It’s the one thing that brings out her personality, which is usually introverted and inward with her soft spoken voice.
Other female characters along with Tamaki compete in Kendo competitions and hone their skills with a male mentor.
12. Ghost Hunt
Ghost Hunt is an
For a seemingly light-hearted
You’ll feel the usual nervousness that comes with horror and mystery series, but Ghost Hunt has its own style.
13. Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon is a classic
This 1990’s classic paved the way for the industry’s growth, opened the door for magical girl
The opening song alone is reason enough for its popularity.
14. Magic Knight Rayearth
Magic Knight Rayearth is another 1990’s classic, but it wasn’t as famous as Sailor Moon. That said it’s a different
It’s about 3 girls who become magic knights (warriors) after being transported to another world from Tokyo Tower.
This is one of the original
Hikaru Shidou is the tom boy, Fuu Hououji is the feminine, well spoken girl, and Umi Ryuuzaki is the “big sister” of the group.
15. Maid Sama
Maid Sama is a Shoujo classic, and probably one of the most famous Shoujo there’s ever been.
It’s about Misaki Ayuzawa, a student council president who HATES men with a passion. And routinely makes their lives difficult in school with her bias.
Misaki’s father ran away from home, leaving the family with debt, and that’s the source of her hatred for men.
This changes drastically as the
Her character development is a highlight.
The romance between Misaki and Usui (a troll type of character) only makes the
16. Special A
Special A in many ways is similar to Maid Sama, especially for its art style.
The main character see’s her love interest as a rival. He’s the only one who can keep up with her as far as competition and skill in school.
This frustration causes her to focus on him, and things start from there.
It’s a bit comical.
Haikyuu is a sports
Shoyo Hinata is the main character with orange hair. Kageyama is the other MC aside from Hinata.
Volleyball is the big thing with this
Quality wise, you won’t find many
It’s a solid series with a lot of potential.
