HOW WELL FEMALE CHARACTERS ARE WRITTEN IN ANIMANGA – Part 2

This list contains SLIGHT SPOILERS as it’s made while taking both anime and manga in consideration.

BLACK CLOVER

Black Clover breaks boundaries in many ways, including the inclusion of a number of strong, complex, and independent women characters. Shounen anime can have something of a… suspect reputation with its treatment of women, either they’re invisible or ineffective, but not Black Clover. Some of it’s most powerful characters are actually women, and they take the front spot as often as many of the boys.

CHAINSAW MAN

One of the main reasons why Chainsaw Man is among my favourites is their variety of characters. Especially, female characters play a very strong role in the story as the main antagonist is a female – Makima. Besides her, almost all of the female cast are also exceptionally strong, complex and have goals of their own. That’s why they’re gonna be considered as one of the best female characters in the history of anime.

RE : ZERO

When it comes to Re:Zero, there are a vast number of female characters, though only few are memorable. They don’t act as a supporting cast to the MC, rather they have their own well written story. Hero or Villain, the strongest women of Re:Zero deserve some recognition. Chief amongst them would be Emilia and Rem, as they quickly became fan favourites.

BLEACH

Bleach is, more or less, a male-dominated world. The FMC is poorly written. However, when it comes to manga it is one of the most inclusive of women. As the manga and anime progressed, audiences met more and more powerful women with tremendous abilities, while the ones they already knew and loved (like Rukia) grew even stronger.

THAT TIME I GOT REINCARNATED AS A SLIME

The number of female characters in Tensura isn’t much, but the main ones sure are interesting to watch. They’re strong-willed, have goals that are interesting to listen to, and radiate badass energy even when they aren’t serious. Some of my favourites are Chloe, Milim, Shion and Hinata.
