Depends on the anime really, the outgoing, tomboyish type will be good in one, and unbearable in another. The girl not honest about her feelings in one will be just a stuck-up in another. But there is one type I don't like, that's the overly passive doormat.

tomboys ala Ryuko (Kill la Kill)
ones with short hair ala Inaba (Kokoro Connect)
lolis ala Shiro (No Game No Life)
light, toned muscles ala Mikasa (Attack on Titan)
flat girls ala Misaka (A Certain Scientific Railgun)

Weee hope you enjoy it when it comes out on Netflix ^^! It's definitely a little over the top but interesting bc it isn't scared to be ugly haha

Also I have to say that one of your favorites, Rei Ayanami, was my first favorite anime character EEEEEVER!! She held my little heart in thrall ~ and still does

Saber from Fate/Stay Night was a great character IMO. She didn't fawn all over Shirou. She wasn't a tsundere. She had a good personality and was kind of cute when she didn't understand something. She certainly wasn't a damsel in distress (Shirou was more of that actually). I wouldn't characterize Saber as any of the typical anime female archetypes.

I don't really have a type IRL, but with anime I root for the underdogs. Petite Pride FTW!

Gentle, very gentle. But is stern and strong willed when she needs to be.
She helps everyone and is happy when others are happy. She cooks and cleans not becuase it's expected, but because she likes it (there's something in that that I appreciate.)


Similar for these
Elsie isn't as outright capable, but she's so nice and caring. Same with Lily.
Gentle but firm, and caring above all else.

Crazy ones are the best. Mainly yanderes, but not all of them. Yangires are good too usually. Yuno Gasai, Kurumi Tokisaki, Hana Midorikawa, Anna Nishikinomiya, Shion Sonozaki, Esdeath, they're all great.



While not crazy (at least not as much as the ones mentioned above), I also like female characters who can get a little jealous and have no trouble expressing their feelings. Utaha Kasumigaoka, Marika Tachibana, Hitagi Senjougahara (not best in her show though). Rem could arguably fit the first list depending on how you look at her.

I typically like anime girls who are weird, but for a cute or charming reason.

Maybe their appearance and personality don't quite match up, like a powerful woman who acts childish, or a loli who acts like an adult. Or they have distinct physical features that border on fetishes. Or they're just quirky and unusual, whether that's something normal like being really shy or a tomboy, or something wild like being a yandere or whatever.

Some faves include...

1. Diane from Seven Deadly Sins
2. Shinobu from Monogatari
3. Makina from Grisaia
4. Suu from MonMusu
5. Ryuko from Kill la Kill
6. Tsuyu from Boku no Hero
7. Yukako from JoJo
8. Juri from Street Fighter (Technically an anime girl?)

And so on. Anything in that kind of realm of being different or odd, I typically like.

I'd probably put them both in my Top 3.
Coincidentally, I really liked them in their manga, before they were ever animated ...
and they both ended up with the same voice actress (Aoi Yuuki). What are the chances?

So type.. I guess I like somewhat sadistic know-it-alls with a soft spot? Meh. I like plenty of characters that fall outside that description and I like lots of different characters for different reasons. Some characters I relate to, others I admire, others I would want to hang out with, some I really think are cool but wouldn't want to cross paths with at all.

Asuka Soryuu, Shinobu Oshino, Saya, Homura Akemi <---

But I also have a whole slew of characters I think are awesome

Renge from Non non Biyori is a champion and she will one day rule the world.

Saori from Girls und Panzer. Because she is a bad bitch who is to young to realize she only thinks she wants to be basic.

Hikari from Interviews with Monster Girls. She is so cartoonishly bubbly like so many anime high school girls, but she actually deals with some conflicts both social and interpersonal.

Megumin and Darkness from Konosuba. Because the lulz.

Sharo from Gochiusa. Sharo for best girl. Notice her Rize-senpai!!!

One thing I dislike about any character is if they are too perfect without some kind of drawback or explanation. So I'm not picking my favorites on any kind of criteria like "Who is the best person?" nor are my favorites characters I see myself hypothetically getting along with.

If I had to pick a type, I would probably go with side characters who wear glasses. I can enjoy pretty much any personality type as soon as you throw some glasses on it. From serious ones like Fumitan Admoss (MSG: Iron-Blooded Orphans) to the air-headed ones like Sheele (Akame ga Kill), and everything in between.
Asuka Tanaka (Hibike! Euphonium), Hazuki Shizuku and Wako Christina Yamato (New Game), Mina Okura (So I Can’t Play H), Otsuka Meiko (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches), Shizuku (Hunter x Hunter), Shiraishi (Tanaka-kun), Maya Matsumoto (Working!!), Sayumi Takanashi (When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace), Rize Kamishiro (Tokyo Ghoul), Mayumi Nishikino (Kawai Complex), Nobara (Inu x Boku SS), Sanae (Sakura Quest), Hitomi Gono (Rail Wars), Sakura Airi (Classroom of the Elite), and many more.
Some main characters creep in there too like Rin Asogi (Mnemosyne), Mirai Kuriyama (Beyond the Boundary), and Lucy Yamagami (Servant x Service), as well as some others.

It goes without saying that I like tons of characters that don't fit into this category as well, but I do enjoy the "megane character" design as a whole. I guess my overall point is that I have a very hard time disliking a character that they've put glasses on (this only applies to the female characters though. I have no problem disliking the guys.....looking at you Shou Tucker (FMA: Brotherhood)).
