Let's face it, being a girl or woman who is into anime can be difficult. While most shows have female characters, they tend to be dramatically outnumbered by their male counterparts. There's also a huge risk that those female characters will fit into dehumanizing stereotypes, like anime girls with huge boobs, that are more insulting than they are entertaining. This isn't knocking anime specifically - basically every kind of media is like this.
Luckily, it's not all like this. While there are a lot of fan service anime, there's also some amazing series directed toward a female audience. Some of these shows are great because they have multiple female characters with diverse personalities, or a fantastic female protagonist who is the hero of her own story. Whether you're a girl, an adult woman, or a guy looking to diversify his media choices, take a look at the best anime series for girls and vote up your favorites.
