So lately I've been having lots of trouble finding lots of good female characters in the newer/ongoing animes. The only anime that I've really found a lot of characters that feel like they have depth and real character development to me is the Monogatari series but I still havent really been able to latch onto any as I usually can. Makes me kinda sad. The last female anime character I really loved was Panty from Panty and Stocking w/ Garterbelt but that may just be because I'm a tad bit messed in the brain.
So my question for you, ladies and gents, is who are some of your favourite female characters from new animes/ ongoing and why? Also, do you feel as if there is a lot of fitting female characters into perfect molds of late in new/ongoing shows? Feel free to post pics

The one I like best from this year is Shizuka Hiratsuka from My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Too. She is the teacher from the series. While a secondary character her role is important and she is the one that seems the most realized character from the series. She is not a one note sensi that most shows use. But you need to watch My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU to get her full impact on the other characters.

In terms on ongoing anime, Sakurako from Beautiful Bones seems like a character OP might want to watch. The eccentricity is strong with that one.

Also, Akane Tsunemori from PsychoPass has character development and changes quite a bit by the end of series.

Generally though, I think anime is the wrong medium to look for "well developed" characters. But for badass characters, it's great.

From this decade, I like the female characters in Jormungand and Akame ga Kill.

Also Shiki and Touko from Kara no Kyoukai. 2008+ counts as "newer" to me...

For this year, you got, in terms of strong female characters:

Sakurako(Beautiful Bones)

Yona(Yona of the Dawn): learns to find herself and matures from typical whiny princess to mature warrior.

Shiki Magata (Perfect Insider): not all super villians/trolls are male.

I do like Celty and the twins is the new Durarara. I think it may just be because there are so many popular characters right
Now that are very static.

Kuon from Utatawarerumono is just superb. An actual character with her own personality outside of just being the main female character. And, yeah, she's damn cute too.

Bruh have you heard of the wild ride that is Battle Angel Alita (Gunnm)?
It's a currently ongoing manga but it has probably one of the most powerful and well developed female characters in manga/anime.
Alita is a cyborg with amnesia who is found by Doctor Ido in a scrapyard. Ido revives her and fixes her up, later to find out that she knows an ancient martial art that alludes to her past.
The manga is all about her journey of her finding her place in this harsh cyberpunk setting and fighting to survive and protect those she cares about. Theres lots of action and a bit of romance but I can guarantee you will enjoy this manga.
Here's some random pages:

Hold up now, a strong female lead that knows what she wants, how to get it, and isn't afraid to go get it? How is that a bad thing?

Sure sure, it's all in the name of sex...but that was her thing, you know? It was a character. Panty likes sex.



Now, many of these females of these crazy people. they exist to look cute and give men boners. That's it.



Now, among our current shows...


I havn't seen the Lupin the 3rd remake, but Fujiko Mine...she is a pure grade A, high class dame. You can not go wrong there.



No other female character in the entire YEAR comes close to her. Now if the new show does her justice.....I don't know. But it's hard to mes her up.
