Isekai can sometimes feel like a male-dominated genre, but that doesn't mean there aren't some amazing women and girls throughout the genre. Let's make some noise for the best isekai girls!

Some of the best female isekai anime characters are protagonists in their own right, as is the case for Miaka Yuki of Fushigi Yugi, Hitomi Kanzaki of Escaflowne, and more recently, Motosu Urano of Ascendence of a Bookworm. Other great anime women may not be the main characters, but they still have important roles to play. After all, what would Rising of the Shield Hero be without Raphtalia and Filo? Many of these characters are capable fighters who can go toe-to-toe with the male cast members. Others don't battle but still have valuable skills to bring to the table.

    Shizue was transported from Earth to a fantasy world after the 1940's bombing of Tokyo. From there, she continued to have a tough time after a demon named Ifrit was forcibly housed in her body, giving her powers that were hard to control. She ended up bonding with Rimuru, giving him both a mission in life, and a human form.

    Shiro and her brother Sora form the unbeatable gaming team, Blank. Their gaming skills serve them well in the world of Disboard, which is a much-needed change from their lives on Earth, where their gaming combines with their social anxieties to turn them into isolated shut-ins.

  • Asuna Yuuki is one of many people who gets trapped in the virtual reality world of Sword Art Online. She's a powerful fighter who can hold her own in battle, but she doesn't object to a little help now and then from her boyfriend Kirito.
