In real life, nuns are devout followers of the Christian faith who help to keep religious institutions going. While that's not totally untrue in anime, nuns tend to have a little more going on. Perhaps they have magical powers, as with Hibana and Iris from Fire Force.
Maybe they're secretly drug dealers or CIA agents, like Yolanda and Eda from Black Lagoon. Maybe they exorcise demons like Rosette Christopher from Chrono Crusade. While many of them do wear traditional nun garb, their clothing is often far more stylized or revealing.
Though not especially realistic, these nuns sure are intriguing. Which one is your favorite?
