I've search all forum in myanimelist that related to this topic, much to my surprise, despite many threads similar to this topic, most of the suggestion does not comply to my need/taste.

This forum strong mentally or physically female main character!
does have some suggestion that suit me but unfortunately I already watch/read those suggested anime/manga.

Here are my lists


Slayers - Lina is funny, strong mentally& physically (her magic), gluttony? and clever too.

Penguin kakumei - She strong physically and mentally(due to her life circumstances), I like Female lead who able to protect the Male lead, plus it consist other genres that I interested in(GENDER BENDER, SHOWBIZ, REVERSE HAREM, BISHIES)

Anatolia story - Im not particularly like the Female lead character but I do like genre HISTORICAL TIME-TRAVEL ROMANCE

Barairo my honey - I like the Female lead ability to control the beast(tiger) of the Male lead. Well to be honest I like SUPERNATURAL genre too.

Skip beat - Kyoko is Naive yet Independent, funny, Strong mentally, I love her dark side the most, the romance plot and in my opinion, the best work of Nakamura sensei ever!

Dramatic love album - Model(SHOWBIZ), beautiful, which in the end became strong mentally with a little push from the Male lead. Another Nakamura Yoshiki work.

Tokyo crazy paradise - GENDER BENDER, strong mentally & physically, beautiful, but what I really admire is, the fact that the Female lead does not afraid in sacrificing her life to protect her Love one and the way Nakamura sensei portray it make she look cool and gorgeous.

Beast master - I like the way she tamed the Male lead and how she overcome the situation when the Male lead go berserk.

The change! - HISTORICAL, GENDER BENDER, REVERSE HAREM, she wise, strong physically & mentally. However I really think in the end the Emperor should know that she disguise as her brother.

Gakuen alice - Mikan not really my favourite character, but I like her never give up attitude.. She mentally strong and physically (her alice). I like the romance plot too.

Ouran high school - GENDER BENDER, REVERSE HAREM, BISHIES, she mentally strong.. Furthermore I love Tamaki and Honey senpai and others character too.

Kaichou wa maid sama - She strong physically and beautiful..but I dont know why I didnt like her, the real reason I force myself to continue watching the anime due to the Male lead character(Usui kun).

Zodiac P.I - The Female lead does not really left a unique impression on me.. I like it coz the DETECTIVE/MYSTERY/SOLVING CASES type of genre.

9 Banme no Musashi - She beautiful, strong mentally & physically, as to be expected from world best agent

Dance in vampire bud - VAMPIRE, beautiful(loli), wise, mentally strong..

Kaibutsu oujou - One of my favourite character, beautiful, strong physically & mentally, cool, leader materials. To be short, have all the quality(relate to her kingdom) of a great ruler

Yankee kun to megane chan - Strong delinquent.

Oresama Teacher - Strong physically, like the romance plot too.

Eternal sabbath - She mentally strong, really mentally strong..

Miriam - Wise, Strong mentally, solving cases, set in Wild West time setting

Air master - The most beautiful and graceful fighting skill ever.. I love the romance plot with Julietta.

Tenjou tenge - I like Aya, she beautiful, mature, strong physically & mentally, cool..love her romance plot with those 3 man(the elder brother, the hero n the suppose bad guy). In contrary I HATE Maya so much, she selfish, ugly with jealousy, a burden, hate her romance plot too.

Tamara - She is beautiful, model(SHOWBIZ), a bully, SOLVING CASES.

W-juliet - She what we call an HANDSOME GIRL(girl look alike boy that other girl turn their eyes to), acting(showbiz). She's a romeo!. GENDER BENDER!

The prince cactus - Her stubbornness is what I like about her.

Hatenkou yuugi - Strong mentally & physically(magic user)


You can see no manhwa here, so please don’t suggest any manhwa, I don’t know why I didn’t like manhwa that much, but I do have all manhwa related to this STRONG FEMALE LEAD genre.

The comment that I put for each anime/manga listed above are to explain what kind of STRONG FEMALE LEAD genre that I really want to watch/read, Im searching for this topic not only in myanimelist but also other place like baka updates and many more..

So PLEASE help me, I really need some useful suggestion..
Here I wanna say in advance THANK YOU VERY MUCH for those who going to help me..

There is an anime series. Two seasons, in fact. It's called Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, and it takes place later than the movie.

It doesn't take place before or after the Oshii movies, they are completely seperate adaptations, alternate universes.

Wow.. this is exactly the kind of thread that I plan to make.. so I'm gonna check this over and over again.
So here, I'll recommend you some as well.

Manga(Most of this are shoujo):
Akagami no Shirayukihime - the female lead is strong mentally. I really like her veiws in things.
Dengeki Daisy - very similar to the main lead of Beast Master
Gokusen - yakuza theme
Kamisama Hajimemashita - this one is not that strong physically, but for me she is strong mentally. She's not just a type of girl who just easily cry over something stupid
Kimi wa Pet - she is an independent girl and strong mentally. If you enjoy josei, try this one
Migawari Hakushaku no Bouken - historical, gender bender. I actually like the female lead. The problem is the translations of this manga
Psyren - strong physically and mentally
Reimei no Arcana - fantasy setting
Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume - the lead is a strong girl physically. She can be little naive but I can say that she is still strong mentally
Tonari no Kaibutsukun - strong mentally and only cares about studies
Arakure - also about yakuza
Venus Capriccio - strong mentally

for the anime:
other than the mentioned ones...

Hiro Mashima's work: Fairy Tail and Groove Adventure Rave
Hakushaku to Yousei - female lead as a fairy doctor
Hanasakeru Seishounen - strong mentally
Howl's Moving Castle - movie. strong mentally
Otome Youkai Zakuro - a half demon that can fight
Romeo x Juliet - strong physically and mentally
Shakugan no Shana
Spice and Wolf - a god, strong mentally and physically
Toradora! - strong mentally and physically
R.O.D the TV - they can really fight
Kaze no Stigma - the girl can fight but her personality can be annoying

If you don't typically like Sci Fi I can't promise you'll like it, but if you're looking for a mentally and physically strong female lead you'll definitely find that in Stand Alone Complex.

GitS is smart, complex, sophisticated, and in the midst of a lot of action, very psychological. Also, Major Kusanagi is among the finest, strongest female leads in anime.

Two things:

1) I see you telling people that you have already seen their suggestions when they are not on you MAL anime list. I cross checked your list but see you telling others making the same suggestion that you have already seen them. It would be very helpful if you would update that list and not dismiss suggestions by saying, "I've already seen that."

2) Did you even look at the list of suggestions I gave you? If not, please click on the "spoiler box". I put long lists in boxes as a courtesy. I don't eat up a lot of page space that way. I'm sure there are many you haven't seen. Just ignore the ones you've seen.

I understand. Sorry to be picky but, your "I've already seen that" sounded kind of like a brush off after folks had tried to be helpful.

Well, that helps but it is a bit difficult to read. It is still much easier to work from a MAL list. If you want recommendations, you have to make it easier for people to access and sort information. No rush. Just update as time permits.

Hanasakeru Seishounen - I like Kajika character, but I doesnt like the elaborating on Lumati crisis in the anime.

Wow guess no one really reads manwha :p anyways im just shocked no one listed these

Love in the mask (strong will to live type of women)

Idol shopping (wants revenge but has a twist)

Red lion (totally forgot but I think it might be to ur liking if u like the others I suggested)

Crazy girl shin bia (strong will imo)

The moment when a fox becomes a wolf (doubt u like it but doesnt hurt to suggest)

Love sos (wants to avenge her fathers death and her eyes.. Ya itll make sense when u read the summary)

If u liked any of these let me know I think I read a few more similar to it and btw tokyo paradise was epic!

Thanks for this topic, I've been trying to find some great anime with strong female characters too. The boy fighting and saving girl anime is great too, but it's great when girls kick butt too xD

Much appreciated :D

Great thread. Tired of movies/series where the supposedly tough main action girl needs to constantly be saved by a guy.


1) Agreeing with the Claymore rec for the Xth time.

I see you already have El Cazador De La Bruja among your queue. You should also consider other BeeTrain series like
2) Madlax
3) Noir


Another series to consider is
4) Canaan
whose female protagonist and female antagonist are the two toughest beings in the world setting.

Manga:
Ciel-The Last Autumn Story
Show Princess (also a drama)
Kiss & Never Cry
Absolute Witch
Dear My Girls
Hakuou no Sono (aka White Garden)
My Barbaric Girlfriend (a bit crude but funny)
Beauty Pop
Fly High!
Teppen! (Gender blender but same feel as skip beat)

Anime:
Shion no Ou? I'm sure the other ones have been written or watched already...hope this helps.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
I might be crazy. So, what's the problem?

if you or anyone reading this wants anymore suggestions I have a couple that I couldn't help wonder why no one else has seen them and or liked the following... I mean unless your really young and never heard of them but i'm not sure... anyway umm here is my list I might add more if another pops into my head later... ooo and ps sorry if someone already posted one of the ones I do... ^.^

peach girl the anime is okay but the mangas are better ( note there is Peach Girl. and P.G change of heart)

cardcaptor sakura

fruits basket (although this is girlly and the girl seems to be weak there is strength too.. well in my opinion)

hana yori dango

ikkitousen

inuyasha

Karin

lovely complex

Pandora hearts

(its been awhile but I wanna say PRETEAR or otherwise known as shin shirayuki-hime densetsu pretear)

shugo chara, shugo chara doki, shugo chara party

soul eater

Tokyo mew mew or mew mew power

MAR (marchen awakens romance)

kiba - although the girl isn't THE main character she is still pretty awesome and the show is awesome... same goes for MAR

ichiban ushiro no daimaou

sailor moon and all of its following names there are quite a bit of them if I recall. so if you want anime that lasts quite a while then this is a good one.

I think that is all that I have that I absolutely know is good or decent... sorry if some aren't what you are looking for...
