Best Shonen Waifus

The shonen genre is replete with ruthless characters who fight beyond their limits for the sake of justice. The majority of heroes have lofty ideals that they defend and protect with all their might. Most of these characters are male, but there is an increasing number of female characters who shine in shonen anime.

Shonen waifus are typically strong, independent women and girls with unwavering resolve. They are oftentimes tougher than the men. Though they are not always the stars of their series, many of these female characters have stolen fans’ hearts since their shows were first broadcast.
