Top Female Anime Characters To Improve Your Confidence

Mikasa Ackerman | Attack on Titan

Of course, Mikasa would be first. With the season 3 trailer of AoT arriving, more hype around this amazing fandom has been going around. She’s loyal and feisty and can totally kick Titan butts! Now to try to get the Attack on Titan theme song out of my head…

Kagome Higurashi | Inuyasha

Going back to my childhood days. Inuyasha was my first real anime (that wasn’t something I just watched on Saturday mornings like Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon) and Kagome was a role model and inspiration for me while growing up. Often I would ask myself, what would Kagome do?

Role models like her were perfect for a shy nerd like me growing up. Her character helped make me brave and I will always love this classic anime.


Ezra Scarlet | Fairy Tail

Who DOESN’T love Ezra? When I first started watching Fairy Tail, her introduction scene was so epically amazing, I had to rewatch it a few times. After watching the series and getting (emotionally) invested in it, I fell in love with her perseverance.

Violet Evergarden | Violet Evergarden

This anime showed on Netflix earlier this year. If you haven’t already watched it, I highly suggest you go and watch it. It’s incredible. She’s determined to find out what love is. Even though she was raised as a war machine, she wants to know love. It’s an anime that gives you all the feels.

Marinette Dupain-Cheng/Ladybug | Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir

I saved the best for last! Anyone who knows me knows how obsessed I am with this fandom. Though some will argue that Miraculous is a kids cartoon, I will fight you on that. The number of times they have almost killed people on this “kids show” put it into a different category.

Miraculous had helped me get through my depression this year in ways that other trials and errors haven’t been able to. Suddenly, I was able to go outside despite dealing with agoraphobia. Here was a female anime character that was given this gift(her miraculous). Despite being afraid, Marinette chose to fight anyway. It gave me a reason to fight my own Akuma’s(my depression/bipolar/anxiety).
