We anime fans are a lucky bunch. Our favorite medium is chockful of cool and gorgeous female characters. In fact, seldom a week goes by without a new anime series appearing with a cast of beauties vying for our attention. And in turn, there’s an ever-growing army of fan boys – and even fan girls – who are falling in love with them. Some may even be wondering how life would be like…if they could date their favorite character!

And that’s not necessarily a weird thing to ponder on. Consider that many female anime characters are intricately fleshed-out with, elaborate backstories and personality traits that it’s not surprising they grow on you, and you start seeing them as something more than 2D girls on the screen.

So, we’re left asking ourselves – who would make the best anime girlfriend?

Fortunately, we don’t get to pick just one. We’re going to look at 10 different ladies who you’d definitely want to spend some quality time with.

In Search of the Perfect Anime Girlfriend!

10. Lucy

From: Elfen Lied

Girlfriend qualities
Lucy’s the kind of girl you’d want to have with you when attending parties. And no, it’s not just because her bright pink hair and horns would draw attention, but because she’d make short work of all the annoying types. It would be wise to stay on her good side though, so that she doesn’t use her destructive Vector abilities on you.

So it would seem that you’d be walking on egg shells if Lucy was your girlfriend. To a certain extent that would be true. But at the end of the day Lucy is simply looking for love and acceptance, and spares those who she truly loves. If she finds the right partner, then it could be a beautiful union and she won’t exterminate the human race. Give love a chance!

9. Kurisu Makise

From: Steins;Gate

Girlfriend qualities
They don’t come any smarter than Kurise. After all, she’s a research member in Victor Qondria University’s Brain Research Program, and was something of a child prodigy during her formative years.

Kurise seldom smiles or shows emotion. And she’s always calm and collected, regardless of who she’s dealing with. At times she can be witty and sarcastic, a by-product of her sharp mind. Nevertheless, she’s a reliable individual who’d make a great girlfriend for any intellectual who’s not a smart aleck.

8. Asuka Langley Souryuu

From: Neon Genesis Evangelion

Girlfriend qualities
If you were a 90’s kid who grew up playing Nintendo 64 and watching Evangelion, then there’s a pretty good chance that Asuka caught your eye. This fiery red-haired cutie steals the show with her fighting spirit and determination.

Now you may be thinking that because she treats Shinji like crap, this means that she would make a lousy girlfriend. However, Asuka isn’t some man-hater who’s incapable of showing affection. Instead she prefers the company of older, independent and handsome men like Ryouji Kaji.

Asuka would definitely make a great and loyal girlfriend for any guy who is mature and can man up. More importantly, she’d be in it for the long-haul due to her strong will, and thus, well-versed in dealing with life’s ups and downs.

7. Lacus Clyne

From: Mobile Suit Gundam Seed

Lacus Clyne looking worried
16 – 20


Girlfriend qualities
To say that Lacus is an overachiever is putting things lightly. She’s a talented singer, princess and chairwoman of PLANT Supreme Council. She’s also a true pacifist who wants to reconcile the Naturals and Coordinators.

But let’s be honest with ourselves, we’d all love to have a pink-haired girlfriend who looks as good as Clyne. And considering how hospitable and caring she is towards Kira by nursing him back to health after he becomes wounded in war, we’d be in good hands!

6. Kosaki “Dera-chan” Onodera

From: Nisekoi (Nisekoi: False Love)

Girlfriend qualities
Kosaki is a brown-haired beauty who’s a bit timid, yet she’s quite popular with the other students in her class – especially the boys. Perhaps, it’s her down-to-earth demeanor and ability to work well with others that make her so amiable.

She’s not scatterbrained or impulsive either, and thinks things through before taking action. However, this is a stumbling block for her when she wishes to confess her love for Raku Ichijou. Yet, everyone can see that she’d be the perfect girlfriend for Raku, considering how much she cares for him when he falls sick.

5. Ako “Aco” Tamaki

From: Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta? (And you thought there is never a girl online?)

Ako Tamaki sexy at the beach


Girlfriend qualities
Ako is absolutely adorable! Her big blue eyes, great physique and quirky dress sense would make most guys drool over her – even want to marry her! But technically, she’s “married” to Hideki Nishimura in an online game.

In her ordinary everyday life, Ako’s shy and quiet and loves gaming. But after she meets Hideki and falls in love with him, her demeanor changes. She’s now a lot warmer, happier and incredibly affectionate. And she’s not a prude either, as she doesn’t mind showing off her sexy naked body to the one she loves!

4. Mai “Mai-chi” Kawakami

From: Musaigen no Phantom World (Myriad Colors Phantom World)

Mai Kawakami eyes closed, concentrating


Girlfriend qualities
What’s not to like about Mai Kawakami? Not much to be perfectly honest. She would be anyone’s dream girlfriend, especially if they happen to be into blondes.

Mai’s very attractive with her purple eyes, long legs, and great figure which isn’t surprising considering she’s quite a sporty individual. But she’s not just a pretty face, as she also has a caring and compassionate side to her.

She enjoys teasing Haruhiko Ichijo initially, but as she gets to know him better, she starts assuming a more motherly role. However, this causes Haruhiko to fall hard for her. She’s incredibly straightforward and fun to be around, which is exactly what most of us would want in a girlfriend!

3. Hestia

From: Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?)

Hestia with her hands on her hips, smiling cheeky


Girlfriend qualities
Hestia is so damn cute, you could just eat her! Then again, why on earth would you do that? She’s a dainty goddess who’ll steal your heart, especially if you’re on the lookout for a girlfriend.

She’s just so full of energy, kindness and love…that it almost seems contagious. And she’ll do anything for the guy she’s infatuated with – Bell Cranel. Hestia will go so far as working extra jobs so she can support both herself and Bell, when he needs to venture into the dungeon. However, she has a tendency of becoming jealous when other girls have their eye on him.

2. Misa “Lisa Hayes” Hayase

From: Macross

Misa Hayase, Lisa Hayes, very small smile



Girlfriend qualities
Don’t hold the bulbous 80’ hair against her, Lisa Hayes is truly a diamond. Initially, she comes across as overly serious but that’s due to her military background. After all, she’s a bridge officer of the SDF-1 which is a very demanding position.

Deep down she’s a true romantic who still pines for her deceased boyfriend. But when a new love blossoms, she approaches her relationship with Rick Hunter in a steadfast and level-headed manner. And this can’t be easy as she’s now pulled into an awkward love-triangle with the popular but superficial popstar, Linn Minmei. Nevertheless, she’s the one who truly looks out for Rick under some strenuous circumstances making him realize that Lisa is indeed, the best girlfriend he could find in Macross City.

1. Belldandy

From: Ah! My Goddess: The Movie

The Best Anime Girlfriend, Belldandy, from Oh! My Goddess
Unknown but there are hints that she’s between 18 – 28 years old.


Girlfriend qualities
Belldandy is perfection personified! And that’s not surprising considering she’s an actual goddess. With her strikingly beautiful blue eyes and brown hair, she’s bound to cause hearts to flutter.

And hey, just because she’s a goddess doesn’t mean that she’s got a holier-than-thou attitude. In fact, she’s incredibly down-to-earth who’s loving and kind-hearted. She cares deeply for all those around her, and even quick to forgive those who cause her harm.

I know what you’re probably thinking, “Belldandy must be the best anime girlfriend ever!” Well, quite possibly but there’s one problem – you’re going to have to snatch her away from Keiichi!

Anime Girlfriend Honorable Mentions

So you asked the above beauties for a date and they all turned you down. Hey, it happens, but don’t fret. Here are a few more ladies that may be willing to be your anime girlfriend!

Lucy Heartfilia from Fairy Tail

Lucy Heartfilia, Fairy Tail
Lucy is confident, grounded and sexy. All of those are great qualities you’d want to have in a girlfriend. And hey, since she’s a mage she’s bound to cast a spell on you!

Hinata Hyuuga from Naruto

Hinata Hyuuga, Naruto
Hinata’s a typical dandere, which means that she’s shy and reserved. A crying shame as this hinders her from expressing her true feelings for Naruto. But what she lacks in the communication department, she more than makes up for with her inner-strength and dedication.

Rangiku Matsumoto from Bleach

Rangiku Matsumoto, Bleach
If Rangiku ever became your girlfriend, then you’re not going to eat, sleep or get any work done. You’ll be so infatuated with one of the most beautiful ladies in shonen land. But if you’re up for a drink, and can hold your sake then there’s nobody that would make for better company!
