Golden locks; what more could we ask for? Blonde anime girls are essential in anime and they carry a certain essence about them that we crave. They span across many character types from tsundere to elegance to complete and utter drunk, but we love each and every one of them! For some reason they also tend to be well endowed...not that we mind, of course!
Down below are the Top 10 Blonde Anime Girls that we just can’t get enough of and feel the need to make an entire list dedicated to them. Share the blonde, share the love!
10. Margery Daw from Shakugan no Shana
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Oct 2005 - Mar 2006
Margery’s hair is a darker golden blonde that extends down to her calves and is pulled up into a high ponytail. She uses the popular way to make any high pony instantly classy by wrapping some of her hair around to hide the actual hair band while letting a couple hairs go purposely astray. And what vivacious blonde would be complete without the side locks curling around her bosom? Really, Margery Daw is a hot, classy drunk and definitely deserves a place on this list!
Margery may only be a supporting character but that doesn’t stop us from loving every inch of her! She’s a drunken Flame Haze who originally appears as a bit of a foe to Shana in Shakugan no Shana. In the series, Shana is a Flame Haze who hunts denizens with Alastor, the “Flame of Heaven” whereas Margery has Marchosias and turns into a werewolf when fighting. They start off a little rocky but since they both have the same enemies, they end up working together at times. Yuji Sakai, a high school student, gets thrown into the mix and aids Shana in battles but a couple of his classmates also end up in the mess. They are Eita and Keisaku, and they are saved by Margery who they end up following and helping her whenever they can.
Margery’s main spell is "Improvisational Poem of Slaughter”, which is already impressive enough but she’s actually pretty powerful and an overall fox. The series goes in deep into her backstory of revenge and makes you love her all the more but the real kicker is when her romance with Keisaku becomes canon., satisfying fans worldwide for support character romances.
9. Mami Tomoe from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jan 2011 - Apr 2011
Mami’s hair is hands down one of the easiest styles to recognize as her character. She’s a much, much lighter golden blonde with more of that anime yellow but pulls it off so elegantly. She has the normal, slightly parted bangs with curly, low pigtails. The reason they’re so original, however, is because it’s just one large spiral curl. Although there are a couple other character designs like this, none are the blonde, low design she has with the ‘boing!’ you can here in the spring of her hair! She takes the curly pig tail and redefines what it is, all while holding the grace and poise she is known for.
Mami is another curvaceous character with a memorable and lovely color scheme. She’s elegant and swift when she’s slaughtering her enemies so it makes you wonder what made her lose her head, har har. In Madoka Magica, she is a veteran magical girl and a third year student, so she’s looked up to as a senpai. She lets Madoka in on the magical girl world and what it’s like. Madoka is hesitant and doesn’t know if she’d want to become a magical girl or if she’d even have a wish worthy to sign her life away for.
Mami, on the other hand, had no choice. She was in a car accident where her parents died and she was only able to escape with her life because she signed a contract with Kyubey. Because she spent the majority of her time fighting alone, she feels a deep sense of loneliness until she meets Madoka and Sayaka. Within the anime, it is told that there are multiple time lines which all five friends fought happily together for awhile before it all kept going to the same ending. Mami never loses her finesse in all of it.
8. Kaori Miyazono from Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
- Episodes: 22
- Aired: Oct 2014 - Mar 2015
Kaori takes the cake for most realistic, fluid golden blonde locks. Her hair isn’t insanely curly nor is it straight, but is usually seen with her hair down with a simple clip or her hair in a high ponytail. Her hair really captures the essence of her character because it’s free and unruly. It paints the picture of a bright sunrise to brighten up Kousuke’s dark world and just like her violin playing, brings a sense of wonder to our senses.
Kaori gives us all something to look up to with her outlook on life and general positive attitude, despite her situation. It’s a wonder if she’s so incredibly gorgeous because of the vivid animation, killer violin music, or just her character but it’s definitely normal to be completely entranced by this smiling blondie. Kaori revives Kousuke, a genius pianist that lost his ability to play but slowly gained it back due to Kaori bringing in his ‘spring’.
In the beginning we see Kaori as a carefree, happy go lucky girl who plays the violin on her own terms; which ends up gaining the audience's approval and not the judges. She tells Kousuke she’s in love with his friend and throughout the series we see the four entangled in a love square, while also dealing with life’s adversities. Kousuke and Kaori team up for Kousuke’s comeback in the competition world but we get a glimpse into the real reason Kaori is living life on the edge and where her true feelings lie.
7. Kirino Kousaka from Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Oct 2010 - Dec 2010
The animation style makes Kirino’s hair one of the more crisp and clean styles there is on this list. Her color is like fire, just like her personality and it can always be seen down, except for the rare treat of a cute updo. Her hair must be oh-so-silky with that shine she has and she definitely provides an argument for blondes have more fun!
On the outside, this series seems to blatantly be a incestuous story about a brother and his sister realizing their feelings for each other but it can go a few ways depending on how you interpret it. Either way, Kirino is one of our favorite tsundere blondes! She’s 14 and her relationship with her brother starts off really rocky. They have nothing in common and haven’t gotten along in years. One day her brother finds out about her secret love of brother sister romances and from that point on, start opening up to each other more.
Kirino is a complex girl with a strong brother/sister fetish. She seems a bit cold hearted, but just can’t express her feelings well. She excels at almost everything she does, school, athletics, and even modeling which she uses to pay for her adult game obsession. She’s pretty bossy at times but eventually starts opening up, just like the wonderful tsundere she is. *SPOILER* They eventually confess their feelings to each other after expressing their dislike of each other having significant others.
6. Asuna Yuuki from Sword Art Online
- Episodes: 23
- Aired: Jul 2012 - Dec 2012
Asuna is much more of a rose gold, with her hair reaching well past her waist. There’s no blonde jokes to be had here in this poised, proper lady who is quite the lady to be looked up to, despite her tsundere tendencies! Her hair is always down, with a little bit pulled back into braids and the traditional locks on the sides of her face. It’s a cute but simple hairstyle, really well suited to her and I’m sure Kirito doesn’t mind one bit!
Asuna brings in a whole new level of grace and grace with swords. The first time we meet her in episode one, she’s a little timid but strong willed and the next time we see her she’s a high ranking officer in a large guild on the battlefront in the online virtual reality game, Sword Art Online. Trapped due to the game maker being a psychopath and trapping them all in the game in a battle of life or death, everyone’s true inner character comes out and Asuna really proves herself as a fighter.
When Kirito meets her again, they both butt heads a little bit more and we see Asuna as an adorable, slightly-tsundere character that quickly turns to admitting her feelings and marrying Kirito (something we as anime fans rarely get to see). Even though Kirito is more in the spotlight, Asuna is just as important and powerful as a female lead, which is also something we don’t often get to see. The balance between the two is lovely, and although she takes a back burner in the latter half of the series and seasons, she never stops being Asuna.
5. Chitoge Kirisaki from Nisekoi (Nisekoi: False Love)
- Episodes: 20
- Aired: Jan 2014 - May 2014
Her hair is definitely full out anime yellow but with a special surprise of pink at the ends! Not very often do anime fans get the treat of blonde with colored ombre, so treasure her good! She can always been seen with her hair down and some pulled back with a big, bright red bow attached. She has the shorter version of hair on the side of her face, which actually is a very popular hair style in Japan. Chitoge, you’re so fashionable!
Chitoge Kirisaki made a promise with a boy when she was younger and gave him her pendant. They promised that they’d get married when they reunited one day. That one day came when Chitoge transferred to the boy’s, Raku’s, class. However they got along terribly. Raku was the son of a Yakuza family and Chitoge is the daughter of the head of the Bee Hive Gangsters. Through a series of anime plot devices, they end up in a fake relationship with Raku’s heart wanting another girl in class.
Chitoge is a hafu, half Japanese, half American who is fluent in both languages and has the aggressiveness of a typical American because she grew up there. She’s a good friend once everyone gets to know her and it’s known that she didn’t easily make friends growing up because she was a gangster’s daughter. Because of this, she made a notebook of classmate’s information to try and make friends with everyone. Claude is part of Bee Hive and is overprotective of Chitoge, resulting in her lack of friends.
4. Tsumugi “Mugi” Kotobuki from K-ON!
- Episodes: 13
- Aired: Apr 2009 - Jun 2009
Mugi’s hair is a much more soft, sandy blonde than others on this list but the change is much appreciated! Her eyebrows which spawned countless memes are another color all by themselves but suit her very well. Her hair is almost always just down and flowing perfectly, like most rich girls. The color and style suits her sweet personality and really adds to her moe level!
We love Mugi, we love her eyebrows, and we love her gentle personality. She plays the Korg Triton Extreme 76-key keyboard in her school’s keion club (Light music club) which almost got disbanded due to its lack of members, however they were able to recruit Yui and kept it open. Together with Ritsu, Mio, and Yui, they take on the challenge of getting ready for their debut at the school festival.
Mugi has been playing piano since age four so she’s talented, beautiful and sweet! She comes from a wealthy family so she finds enjoyment in life’s simplicities such as fast food and bargaining. She also breaks from her usual sweet personality to show a more rebellious side. She also has intense physical strength because she carries around all the instruments and amps like it’s no big deal as well as winning at arm wrestling. She also ships yuri by imagining things that aren’t actually happening, like the rest of us do!
3. Lucy Heartfilia from Fairy Tail
- Episodes: 175
- Aired: Oct 2009 - Mar 2013
Lucy wouldn’t be Lucy without her bright gold locks, fashioned into many different hairstyles over the seasons. Anime fans with different preferences worldwide get satisfaction with her regular outfit change and, sometimes, lack of outfits. Her hair can always be found up in a hairstyle, unless she’s just gotten out of the bath, and usually is some variation of ponytails and pigtails that are placed higher or lower. Her blonde is bright and peppy, just like her cheery personality and mixes well with Natsu’s salmon pink!
Lucy may not be the only curvy blonde on this list but she’s certainly the most well known! Fairy Tail starts out with Lucy trying to get her way into the notorious guild, Fairy Tail. Along the way she meets a boy named Natsu and his flying, talking cat, Happy. After a whirlwind of events, she finds out Natsu is the well known Salamander fire mage, who tends to wreak havoc wherever he goes. They become instant friends and he brings her to fairy tail, where she meets many new people and friends with many adventures to be had.
Fairy Tail is a long running series, with it’s newer season still continuing. But that’s okay because everyone loves our beloved Lucy! She’s more than just a hot bod, she’s loves her nakama (comrades) dearly and we all wait desperately for the day when the maker of the series, Hiro Mashima, will stop teasing the fans and just freaking make Natsu and Lucy canon already! Throughout the series, Lucy’s power level seemingly fluctuates. In the beginning she’s weak but has her episodes where suddenly she can pull out all of her celestial spirits at once (where no one ends up seeing) and later, during the Grand Magic Games, ends up losing to a lot of tricks and treachery. Long running Lucy fans wait for the waited explosion of her powers.
2. Sena Kashiwazaki from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (I Don’t Have Many Friends)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Oct 2011 - Dec 2011
Sena wins rich girl with her shiny, platinum blonde hair. It looks absolutely perfect with her butterfly clip matching her blue eyes and she’s well aware of it, sporting confident posture and all. Again, rich girl’s tend to have their hair down and simple except for Maid Sena which is quite positively the cutest maid look ever. Sena plays a perfect blonde with the occasional blonde moment herself, and is adored for it.
If you’ve ever had problems making friends, you might relate to Sena. In Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, the main characters find themselves, in some way, unable to make friends and they come together to form the Neighbor’s Club. In this club, they try to learn how to make friends and maintain friendships through various activities whilst being friends themselves, whether they admit it or not. Specifically Sena, nicknamed Niku (Meat), has a hard time acting normal around people. Even though she pretends otherwise, she likes the nickname Niku because it’s her first nicknames she’s gotten ever.
Sena’s extravagant and prestigious looks should get your attention right away but if not, maybe her tsundere side will. She beautiful and she’s arrogant, but she really just wants to make friends underneath it all. She loves dating sims and eroge because it allows her to actually make female friends. Aww, we’ll be your friend, Sena!
1. Saber from Fate/Stay Night
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Jan 2006 - Jun 2006
Saber is light sandy blonde that can always be seen sporting the same hairstyle; a perfect bun with a braid wrapped around it and a cute blue ribbon to top it off. She’s got bangs with the popular longer side bang look and everything including her outfit gives a very modest, older look that exudes grace. Which makes sense, considering who she is and where she’s from!
Even though Fate/Stay Night dates back a few years and even without the recent remake, Saber has always been at the top of everyone’s favorite blondes list. She’s as badass as they come, can kill just about anything, is a king and is in enough suggestive visual novels to keep the fans thirsts quenched. Saber’s basically the ideal woman; she’s beautiful, has insane power, with a cute, incredible appetite that we seem to love in our anime women. She can go from vanquishing any foe to being completely innocent and oblivious, as she is not from this time.
In Fate/Stay Night, Saber is Shirou Emiya’s servant spirit warrior for the Holy Grail War with the prize being unimaginable power. However, it’s a dangerous war where death and battles are imminent. There are seven other teams that he will have to defeat with some consisting of sinister, sneaky fighters that will do anything it takes to win.
There it is, Honey’s top 10 blonde anime girls! A list full of tsunderes, curvy and non curvy women alike, fighters and non fighters. We love every type of blonde, from platinum to sandy to dark golden blonde and every hairstyle in between. While animation takes a big play on the final appearance, they always end up looking impeccable and unforgettable; we wouldn’t know what to do without them!
But such a short list of such a large span of characters is almost cruel, considering the innumerable character types and styles from every genre known to man. Who did we miss? Who are your favorite anime blondes?
