cute anime girls list

You have watched numerous anime shows. But watching them for a reason is different. Some people view it for story and others for animation and action scenes. Who else watches some anime just for cute anime girls?

As for me, I binge-watched most of the anime just because there are cute anime girls in the anime who can strike through your heart with their cuteness alone. Almost every anime has a cute anime girl that leaves an everlasting impression on us.

If you’re here for some cute anime girls, thank yourself for checking out our post because you’re about to see some adorable anime girls that you’ve never. Without any delay, let’s dive right into the post.

Cute Anime Girls List!

20. Mayuri Shiina

Mayuri Shiina- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Steins; Gate
  • Traits: Sweet, Adorable, and Innocent.

One thing that comes to our mind when we hear the name of Mayuri is “Tuturu.” It’s more like a code of her adorableness. She said that word numerous times in the anime, but every time seems like the first time.

19. Mirai Kuriyama

Mirai- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Beyond the Boundary
  • Traits: Clumsy, Cute, and Loves to eat.

Mirai is yet another cute anime girl with some strange power that can manipulate the blood. However, she’s not the type of girl that stays cheerful all the time, but it is the exact opposite. She also tries to kill herself because of her power, and she doesn’t like it.

18. Kanade Tachibana

Kanade Tachibana- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Angel Beats
  • Traits: Stoic, Innocent, and Kuudere

Kanade, or appropriately called Angel, is a down to earth character from the anime Angel Beats. At the beginning of the anime, she leaves a negative impression on us, and we love her for her negative side.

But as you move forward, you realize that Kanade isn’t a villain type. Instead, she is the one who keeps the show on the right path.

17. Asuna Yuki

Asuna- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Sword Art Online
  • Traits: Caring, Genuine, and Loves video games.

It’s not like there is a specific rule that only Lolis should be allowed to act cute. There do have some grown-up characters like Asuna, who is as adorable as the characters we’ve seen so far. In recent times, Asuna has become quite an icon, and that’s not at all surprising.

16. Illyasviel von Einzbern

Illya- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Fate
  • Traits: Cute, Responsible, and a little bit egoistic.

Illaysviel or in short Illya is a contender in the Fate/stay night, and you shouldn’t know how precious she is. She had her spinoff series in which she plays the leading role of a protagonist. Although there aren’t many cute moments of her, the franchise made it possible with the spinoff.

15. Misaki Mei

Misaki Mei- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Another
  • Traits: Sweet, Cute, and Kuudere

Is it me or everybody thinks the same way? Why are the girls with an Eye-Patch looks damn cool and pretty? In the anime, she has a vital role in building your thrill and anxiety. But what makes her worthy of being in the list of cute anime girls is her looks and character.

14. Filo

Filo- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: The Rising of the Shield Hero
  • Traits: Cute, Annoying, and Shapeshifter.

Filo can be annoying and adorable at the same time. In the anime, she always interrupts a romantic moment, but later, that turns into a cute scene.

She eats a lot, does all types of crazy things, and gets in the way of Raphtalia, who loves Naofumi, but still, we all love her so much. And she isn’t just adorable but also has a badass view when the situations demand.

13. Hinami Fueguchi

Hinami- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Tokyo Ghoul
  • Traits: Shy, Adorable, and loves books

I don’t know if most of the audience feels her cuteness, but she is one of the cute anime girls out there. Hinami is a ghoul who loses her parents in the hands of Ghoul Investigators. But she didn’t hold any grudge against them; instead, she became strong mentally.

In the anime, she has some moments which make up for her position as one of the cute anime girls, such as learning Kanji from Kaneki. However, after the time skip, she changes in appearance and personality, but you’ll still like her. As for me, she’s one of the most cutest female characters I’ve ever seen.

12. Mio Akiyama

Mio- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: K-On!
  • Traits: Shy, Cute, and Dandere

K-On! is one of the sweetest and pleasant ‘Slice of Life’ anime out there. And half of the reason for that is Mio Akiyama. Most of the audience find Mio as the cutest little pie of K-On! Anime. And I’d say she is indeed the cutest pie of K-On!

11. Chika Fujiwara

Chika Fujiwara- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Kaguya-sama: Love is War
  • Traits: Wealthy, Adorable, and Hyperactive

Chika Fujiwara is a type of girl who always keeps smiling and cheers everyone around her. But not only that, in the anime Kaguya-sama: Love is War, she is the key to humor. She always messes up the plans of Kaguya and Shirogane, who try to win over each other.

And often coming up with strange ideas, everyone in the student council thinks her as a simple-minded girl. The best quality of Fujiwara that everyone likes is her “Love Detective,” where she gives others relationship advice even though she never had a boyfriend.

10. Taiga Aisaka

Taiga Aisaka- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Toradora
  • Traits: Adorable, Tsundere, and little bit annoying.

Here we have the most popular Tsundere of all time Taiga Aisaka. She even has a nickname as “Palmtop Tiger” because she has equal parts of Cuteness and Ferocity. On top of all this, she is the type of girl who expresses everything genuinely.

9. Shiro

Shiro- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: No Game No Life
  • Traits: Adorable, Intelligent, and Analytical

Shiro is a genius, and with her brother Sora alongside her, no one can beat them in a game. But on the other side, Shiro is too adorable even non-anime fans can’t deny the fact. Well, she is just too cute that everyone wishes to have a girl like her beside them.

8. Rem

Rem- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Re: Zero
  • Traits: Caring, Lovable, Sweet, Cute, and Strong

Here comes the best waifu from the anime Re: Zero. She’s mostly quiet and calm, but her innocence is the one quality that makes anyone like her in an instant.

If I had to choose one cute anime girl as my waifu, there is a 99% chance that it would be Rem. Thus, we brought Rem as one of the best cute anime girls in anime.

7. Raphtalia

Raphtalia- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: The Rising of the Shield Hero
  • Traits: Adorable, Innocent, and Strong

Yeah, I know you’re wondering why isn’t our best girl Raphtalia isn’t in the list of cute anime girls yet? Sorry for the late entry, but let’s make it the right spot. But the little Raphtalia was too adorable than she is now.

However, the fact we’ve seen her from being an innocent child to a loving teenager is quite refreshing, and that’s why she is so likable. In the anime, she turns into an adult too soon, but the moments that little Raphtalia left us precious. Probably this list would feel empty without her presence.

6. Suika

Suika- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Dr. Stone
  • Traits: Adorable, Hard-Working, and Responsible

Suika is a little girl from the series Dr. Stone. Despite her appearance, she’s a good spy who helps the people who trust her.

She seems a little shy and weird at the same time because she wears a watermelon cap around her head. Since she spent her childhood lonely, she always comes forward to make new friends and cares for them so much.

5. Rikka Takanashi

Rikka- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Love, Chunnibyou, & Other Delusions
  • Traits: Adorable, Relatable, and Delusional

“Chuunibyou” refers to a syndrome that we used to feel when we were kids. After facing a tragic incident of losing her parent, Rika falls into a world of delusions.

She imagines herself as “Wicked Eye” by using an eye-patch to cover an eye. It might seem crazy, but she isn’t a twenty-year-old person to get over such tragic things.

4. Nezuko

Nezuko- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
  • Traits: Adorable, Strong, and Waifu-material

A list might be about beautiful anime girls or cute anime girls, it is always incomplete without our Nezuko, isn’t it? . In the whole anime, she barely speaks. But as we already know the phrase- “Actions Speak Louder than Words,” she wins the hearts of the audience by her adorableness alone.

3. Eri

Eri- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: My Hero Academia
  • Traits: Innocent, Adorable, and Sweet.

Guess who we have here! The girl who doesn’t know how to smile but the sole reason for our smile. Eri is a little girl from the series My Hero Academia who spent most of her life in the villains’ hands until heroes rescued her.

Even though she was too innocent and scared; her cuteness didn’t fade away. But when she finally smiled at the School Festival arc, every fan of My Hero Academia cried their hearts out.

2. Umaru Doma

Umaru Doma- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Himouto Umaru-chan
  • Traits: Lazy, Adorable, and Manipulative

Umaru Doma is the protagonist of Himouto! Umaru-chan. If we decode her name, the meaning tells her that she is a “lazy bum little sister.” Both her personalities feel pretty cute and she’s a well written character.

1. Kanna Kamui

Kanna Kamui- Cute Anime Girls
  • Anime: Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
  • Traits: Adorable, Strong, and Kuudere

Kanna Kamui is a mighty dragon, just like Tohru, who lives along with Miss Kobayashi. But the truth is, she is the icon of innocence and adorableness. Typically, Kanna is a silent and shy girl. But her actions speak louder than words.

Even other characters in the anime end up feeling jealous because of her cuteness. Well, that’s Kanna Kamui for you. If you haven’t watched this anime yet, make sure you do it now because you don’t know how cute Kanna can be unless you do it.
