Are you tired of anime girls who have typical personalities, hobbies, and worldviews? If so, you probably appreciate quirky anime girls who don't do anything normally.
Classic examples include the guitar-wielding maniac Haruko Haruhara from FLCL, and Ed the computer prodigy from Cowboy Bebop. More recently, there's Nezuko Kamado of Demon Slayer, who sleeps in a box and doesn't talk. There's also Filo from The Rising of the Shield Hero, who is a bird who turns human and has made more than one comment about eating her own kind.
If you see one of your faves on the list, know that weird is a compliment, not an insult. These girls are here because they're unique, fun additions to their respective shows. Sure, sometimes eccentric anime girls can have traits that are off-putting, but overall, their quirks are a part of their charm.
1. Nezuko Kamado - 'Demon Slayer'Photo: ufotable
As a human, Nezuko Kamado was a typical 14-year-old girl, but things change once she's turned into a demon. After that, she's nonverbal, sleeps in a box, and keeps a wooden rod clenched between her teeth - but can decapitate anyone who messes with her brother.Do you love her?

Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV, known simply as Ed, is a classic example of this trope. Ed is a prodigy hacker who is also prone to adorably eccentric behavior. Whether she's singing nursery rhymes to herself, spinning in circles, or refusing to wear shoes, her personality shines through.Do you love her?

The adorable a scout for the Kingdom of Science, Suika feels more comfortable in her melon helmet (which is eventually fitted with lenses by Senku so she can see better.) Her face when she squints definitely isn't cute, but it sure is hilarious.Do you love her?
4. Milim Nava - 'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime'Photo: 8bit
Milim is one of the oldest and most powerful demon lords in the world, but her powers are sometimes overlooked because of her personality. She's hyper, short-tempered, and holds her "friendship" with Rimuru in such high regard that she can be easily manipulated with it. This only makes her more adorable.Do you love her?
