Please! If you know any anime or manga with a female lead/main character with supernatural powers, please recommend! The female has to be the main character. I'd like her to be the one with the powers, or ability, or strength.
Such as: like she can read mind, see the future, hypnotize ppl, has supernatural strength and so on
And also I'd really like it if it had a mystery genre, or something about solving cases with the powers they have. REMEMBER! FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER/LEAD PLEASE!!!

Anime I've watched:
Witch Hunter Robin

Srry... I don't know much female main characters with supernatural powers. but anyways, I thought it was great!

I have also read a manga:
Keishichou Tokuhanka 007

Well... that's all!!! Please please please recommend if u know any! ty sooo much! also remember that it can be manga or anime. Be sure to tell me if it's an anime or manga! Thank so much! :)

Assuming you can handle or don't mind "mature" or "dark/gore-ey" series.

-Kara no Kyoukai

Both involve solving cases/mysteries and both have inhuman 'abilities'.

Also might work:
-Witch Blade

Going through my list:
Fuujin Monogatari (slice-of-life)
Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu (comedy)
Kamichu! (Slice-of-life)
Kurau Phantom Memory (sci-fi)
Re: Cutie Honey (action/ecchi/comedy)

And one anime where the powers are a big spoiler:

Tokyo Akazukin (Gore, so not for people with weak stomachs)
Pugyuru (Comedy. There's an anime too, but the manga's much better, because there's more and the art's better.)

Hare nochi Guu has the most power usage, followed closely by Pugyuru. From the non-comedic options, Tokyo Akazukin probably has the most. Fuujin Monogatari has by the least power usage from what I mentioned, but I mentioned it because it's a great slice-of-life anime either way.

As mentioned above, I say go for:

Mnemosyne: Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi


Tetsuwan Birdy Decode, although she's more a co-main character in the first season, while definitely being the main character in the second season


Toaru Kagaku no Railgun
Harems don't exist in America. If one guy is constantly surrounded by beautiful girls, then he's probably the gay friend.

Darker than Black season 2


'No matter how good you are you alone cannot change the world.' -L Death Note
'I don't like that word. After all, it makes me lonesome. Even though, 'Farewell'. I have to make sure I say it right, Amber?' -Maki, Darker than Black

They say too much thinking can create something that's not really there in the first place. So give me a moment, I'm busy thinking about cake.

OP seen that already. Tho id suggest to read manga - its way better than anime adaptation.


female lead doesnt have supernatural powers, she is just very smart. Anime has a mystery/detective consept. Gosick alike anime: Kamisama no Memochou, Dantalian no Shoka

What wasnt yet mentioned:

Denpa teki na Kanojo (no powers, just very smart girl)
Jigoku Shoujo
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro (female lead uses demon to solve difficult cases and pays him back with humans souls)
Ray the Animation (supernatural powers, each episode connected with specific person female lead has to help and/or solve the mystery behind this case)
Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin (no powers, yet supernatural events involved, female lead is familiar with occult stuff)
Shingetsutan Tsukihime
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu (kinda... supernatural involved, female lead trying to understand whats going on and always in center of shit whats happening)

If I may jump in, I'm new here, and am also looking for manga that has a strong female lead. Looking for a specific one through, that I had read a long time ago. She wears a yukata and has inhuman strength given to her by her father and wields a sword that is basically too heavy for anyone else to lift. Her companions are a young man and his sidekick, a feral girl who fights melee style and uses poison on her hands to inflict damage. They also come across a cannibal inn-keeper. The main girl also talks about how her mother told her to marry the man that sees her breasts and is troubled because the male lead had seen her on accident at the inn. Please help me find it!

Juuni Kokuki - the main character doesn't have powers but gets some after she is transported to another world

Dennou Coil - one of the two main girls is an incredibly powerful hacker who can manipulate the virtual reality world the kids in this show inhabit; one of my all-time top-ten shows

Kotoura-san - girl can read minds; not always a good thing

Noein - girl is the nexus of a conflict between parallel universes
