Gather round, because it's time to celebrate the best female characters in One Piece. Like most shonen anime, many of the important characters in One Piece are male. While this can be a bit alienating for female viewers, it's all the more reason to celebrate the amazing women who make the show what it is.
The character that is your favorite depends on what interests you. Do you like formerly villainous girls who change their ways after falling in love? In that case, Charlotte Pudding might be one of your favorites. Do you like intelligent, strong-hearted women without who the rest of the cast would be literally and figuratively lost? Then Nami is probably going to be your best girl.
Whatever your tastes, there are plenty of amazing One Piece characters to fit the bill.
