Have you ever wondered why people are so fascinated with angels? Is it because that somehow, we have always believed in them as spiritual beings who act as messengers of God, or do we consider them as higher entities that simply offer us protection in our daily lives? Is it their magical aura that makes them perfect fantasy characters or do we just really like characters with wings? You might have a different reason on why you find them interesting but one thing is for sure, anime characters with angelic personas are just awesome.
If you are looking for the top celestial characters in anime or just love a good fantasy series with some great angel characters in it, then this is definitely the list for you.
10. Rakka from Haibane Renmei
- Episodes: 13
- Aired: Oct 2002 - Dec 2002
Rakka woke up from a dream of falling from the sky, moments after, she is welcomed by a group of females that look like angels in a very strange new world. She then develops her own set of wings and a halo on top of her head. As the story progresses in a new realm, she later realizes that there are walls surrounding the whole town of Haibane Renmei. She builds a relationship with her new found family and lives in the quiet confined world along with wingless-halo-less beings while trying to uncover the mystery behind the impenetrable wall that no one dares to cross.
Rakka gains our number ten spot because she is the perfect example of an anime angel character. Given the obvious wings and halo, she also has the characteristics of being holy and she somehow has a celestial connection with birds. She also shows deep attachment to her new found family and is very curious about the mysteries surrounding her life. Her character is a great representation if we were to describe how angels would live if they were sent to the human world, even though it was never determined she was an angel, we definitely like to believe she is!

- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jan 2012 to Mar 2012

Issei must now learn to fight as they enter an adventure in where angels and devils collide.
Being one of the many female protagonists of High School DxD. Irina is a good candidate on our anime angels list as she was reincarnated as an angel because of her devotion to God.

Misha gets into a lot of trouble as she has no idea how things work on Earth causing more harm than good.
The reason why Misha gets our ninth angel spot is because this show really captures the essence of how an angel would live with ordinary humans. She speaks innocently like a child and tries really hard to make everyone around her smile. She is also very optimistic and protective of Kotarou. Pita Ten is a very adorable show for kids and kids at heart.

3. Ikaros from Sora no Otoshimono [Heaven's Lost Property]

Suddenly, an anomaly drops a mysterious entity from another dimension who then calls herself Icarus, an animal-angel who suddenly becomes Tomoki’s servant. The quiet life of Tomoki stops as they both embark on a journey full of romance and mystery.
Ikaros takes our top three spot simply because of her cuteness. She is technically classified as an “Angeloid” or an android angel. She becomes attached to Tomoki from the very get-go of the series and heeds to his every wish. Much like fantasy angels, Ikaros has the ability to grant wishes through the use of magical cards. Also equipped with angel wings in a voluptuous body, she would clearly be a great candidate if you are to describe how you want angels to look like when you get to see one. This is a fun and perverted take on angels, along with a little romantic relationship that blossoms between characters.

Sharing our first place for badass anime angel characters are the Anarchy sisters, Panty and Stocking. These angel sisters were kicked out of heaven because of some nasty behavior. They are thrown away to the treacherous Daten City, a place in between heaven and hell, where foul creatures have gone berserk and feed on evil desires. Panty and Stocking do their best to exterminate these wicked ghosts to collect enough Heaven Coins and find a way back into heaven. Humanity’s last hope for survival is in the hands of the Anarchy sisters.
Stocking is the youngest of the Anarchy sisters and is one of the main characters in Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt series. Her name derives from, yes obviously her stocking, when taken off becomes blade weapons. Taking a different approach of the usual good-hearted angels, Stocking purifies evil by slicing them to pieces, literally.
Panty is Stocking's sister and contrary to a typical angel’s personality, Panty loves sex and spends most of her free time with random men in love hotels. Showing more of a bad girl side compared to her sister, her name is also the source of her power, transforming her panties into a handgun named Back Lace. One angelic feature that she has is that her bullets only penetrate spirits and has no effect whatsoever to humans. If you want to see angels in a totally different naughty point of view, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt will surely keep you entertained.
