While shonen anime does tend to focus on male characters, that doesn't mean there aren't some amazing shonen female characters to get hyped about. For this list, we're counting down some of the best shonen heroines out there.
We love side characters, but this list is focused on protagonists or near-protagonists. So, Nezuko Kamado from Demon Slayer gets the spotlight, while the equally awesome Shinobu Kocho will be highlighted elsewhere.
Some of these characters aren't just the best in shonen - they're among the best female anime characters, period. Which ones are your favorites?
