If I google โ€œBest anime waifus of all timeโ€ I get the same stupid list with Asuna from Sword Art Online on #1.

Not hating or anything, but that series is from the Stone Age and sheโ€™s extremely overrated.

Itโ€™s 2024 and some waifus are 10 times more cute, pretty, and adorable.

Iโ€™ve been an anime fan for over 9 years and reviewed the BEST anime waifus of the year.

Put your seatbelt on and grab a bucket, because Iโ€™ll have you drooling in front of your laptop before you make it to the top 5.

What Are Anime Waifus?

Anime waifus are fictional female characters from anime and manga that fans have a strong affection for, often considering them as idealized romantic partners. The term โ€œwaifuโ€ is a play on the English word โ€œwifeโ€ and is used predominantly in the anime community.

The 15 Best Anime Waifus Of All Time

I wonโ€™t hold you up any longer, Iโ€™ve reviewed more than 60 anime waifus in total so I have no doubt these are the best of the best.

You can check out the quick overview below. Or you can stick around for the full breakdown of these top waifus โ€“ I generated some epic anime images.

#15 Shinobu Kocho (Demon Slayer)

I am kicking off this list with Miss Shinobu Koche โ€“ a beautiful waifu from the popular series Demon Slayer.

Not only is she a badass Hashira,

(one of the most powerful fighters on the planet)

but sheโ€™s also exceptionally kind and loving.

SBB Placeholder Logo 1 (Dark)

Remember that scene from Season 2 where Tanjiro was brought to โ€˜the mastersโ€™ mansion?

Every Hashira (including the legendary Mr. Rengoku) wanted to kill Tanjiro and his sister but guess who didnโ€™t?ย 

Thatโ€™s right, Shinobu was quiet all the time non-verbally telling us she felt sorry for Tanjiro.

Especially since she tried to kill Nezuko in the forest earlier.

In fact, when Tanjiro and Nezuko got pardoned by the Master, Shinobu offered to take them in and help them recover and train.


Waifu Rating

Pro Tip:

I think these images of Shinobu are mega cute. I created them with these new AI waifu generator apps Iโ€™ve ben playing around with lately. Check out my Yodayo review for more pics. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Shinobu grabs the 15th spot with her killer combo of being a top-tier fighter and a sweetheart.

Sheโ€™s way more than just a Hashira; sheโ€™s got this golden heart that lights up the whole Demon Slayer series.

#14 Malty S. Melromarc (The Rising of the Shield Hero)

OK - I am not going to sugarcoat thisโ€ฆ Malty is kind of aโ€ฆ bitch.

She played the perfect waifu.

Until we discovered she wanted to get close to Naofumi to steal all his money and ruin his reputation by telling everyone she got raped.

BUTT, she did play her role so exceptionally well that I just had to include her in the best anime waifu list.ย 

Malty S. Melromarc

Even though she only played the beloved waifu for one episode, she stole many anime fans' hearts and made an impact.


Waifu Rating

Okay, so Malty's a bit of a wild card, right?

She's got this bad rep, but man, did she play the waifu game well. She's the kind of character you love to hate, landing her at #14.

#13 Mitsuri Kanroji (Demon Slayer)

Another character from Demon Slayer - Mitsuri (or Miss Kanroji) the Love Hashira.

Sheโ€™s not only super cute and talks like a princess but also a badass fighter with a whip instead of a sword.

And stronger than most guys.

Mitsuri Kanroji

In Season 3, I am almost certain everyone would have died if she hadnโ€™t shown up and whooped that demon's ass.


Waifu Rating

Mitsuri snags #13 with her princess vibes and badass whip skills. She's the perfect mix of cute and fierce, making her totally unforgettable.

She's a great statue-worthy waifu if you ask me!

#12 Nezuko Kamado (Demon Slayer)

I know, I knowโ€ฆ

Including Nezuko in a โ€˜best anime waifus of all timeโ€™ list is as cliche as finding a cat in a cardboard box but I just had no choice.

Sheโ€™s cute, powerful, and just super sweet so I was left with no choice.

Forgive me.

Nezuko at #12 because, come on, who can resist that cuteness and power? She's the demon-slaying sister we all dream of having.

#11 Yoshimoto Shizuka (The 100 Girlfriends Who Really, Really, Really, Really, REALLY Love You)

This is probably one of the most underrated anime waifus of all time - Yoshimoto.

Sheโ€™s from the popular romcom The 100 Girlfriends Who Really, Really, Really, Really, REALLY Love You.

Try saying that 7 times after taking a shot of vodka, I dare you.

The reason I included her in the list is because sheโ€™s just adorable with her cute shy Dandere personality.ย 

Yoshimoto Shizuka

In fact, sheโ€™s so shy that she canโ€™t even talk but needs to use audiobooks.


Waifu Rating

Yoshimoto's up at #11 for being the cutest shy girl around. Her unique way of communicating just adds to her charm.

#10 Mami Nanami (Rent-a-Girlfriend)

This one has gotten mixed feelings from the anime communities.

If I go to the comment section of CrunchyRoll you read the words โ€œF*ck Mamiโ€ every 6.09 seconds.
Herman Carter
AI Dating Expert | Menprovement

But I do believe sheโ€™s a great waifu, she obviously felt bad about dumping Kazuko, even though she wouldnโ€™t admit it.

Mami Nanami

She has a toxic girlfriend personality;

  • Highly intelligent
  • Extremely charismatic
  • Envious manipulator

However, I do think itโ€™s kinda cute that she did everything in her power to make Kazuko and Chizoru break up.ย 

And itโ€™s good to include other types of dere (personalities) in the best waifu of all time list instead of your typical dandere.


Waifu Rating

Mami's at #10, and yeah, she's a bit of a rollercoaster. She's smart, charismatic, and knows how to play the game, making her a waifu you can't ignore.

#9 Neko Fujinomina (Masamune-kun's Revenge)

Speaking of crazy, on a scale of 1-10 how crazy are you to almost hit a stranger with a car and then jump out and declare your love for them?!

Ever since Fujinomina appeared in Masamune-kun Revenge, she has been adored by the anime community for her cheerful and sweet personality.

Despite her being chronically ill, she didnโ€™t talk much about herself.

Fujinomina always put others before herself - making her cute waifu material.

Neko Fujinomin

Fujinomina reaaaally wants to get married so she tries to make masamune her husbando.

This leads to a couple of funny (but cute) scenes where she fails and you have one of those typical moments where the protagonist his nose starts to bleed.


Waifu Rating

Neko's all cheer and sweetness, landing her at #9. Despite her struggles, she's always putting others first, which is total waifu material.

#8 Rem (Re: Zero)

If you've been anywhere near the anime community, you know Rem is basically the queen of waifus.

Remember that heart-wrenching episode 18 in the first season?ย 

Yeah, the one where Rem confesses her love to Subaru in a way that could melt even the coldest of hearts.

It's not just her undying love for Subaru that makes her stand out, but also her fierce loyalty and bravery.

rem

In episode 15, "The Outside of Madness," we see Rem's true strength as she battles the cultists to protect Subaru.ย 

It's a scene that's as intense as it is emotional, showcasing her as a warrior who's not just about the cute maid outfit.


Waifu Rating

Rem's at #8 and for good reason. She's got this mix of love and warrior spirit that just grabs you.

Plus, who can forget her epic moments in battle?

#7 Shoko Makinohara (Rascal Does Not Dream Of Bunny Girl Senpai)

Shoko (the bunny girl) is like a cool breeze on a hot day - refreshing and soothing.

When she first shows up in episode 6, it's like a surprise twist that makes you sit up and pay attention.

She's calm, kind, and seems to know just the right thing to say.

Shoko stands out because she's not just nice to look at; she's got this peaceful vibe that makes you feel relaxed.ย 

Mai Sakurajima

She's the kind of waifu who's like a best friend - always there to listen and make you feel better.

And she looks damn cute in that bunny outfit.


Waifu Rating

Shoko's at #7 for being the chill in the anime storm. She's got this calm, kind vibe that just makes you feel good.

#6 Taiga Aisaka (Toradora)

Taiga aka the tiger.ย 

I absolutely loved the scene where she broke into Yasukoโ€™s house to kill him.
Herman Carter
AI Dating Expert | Menprovement

You: That was a nice scene inde- WAIT WHAT?

Ok, hear me out for a second.

Taiga Aisaka

Taiga tried to kill Yasuko for taking a love letter she wrote to her classmate.ย 

If I just look at the character development of Taiga, itโ€™s almost insane how she went from fully Terminator to caring waifu who makes cookies.

She shows us that sheโ€™s tough on the outside and soft within, which makes her a beloved waifu within the anime community.


Waifu Rating

Taiga, a.k.a. the tiny but mighty tiger, roars into #6. She's got this tough shell but is all soft and sweet on the inside.

#5 Doroka (The Kingdoms of Ruin)

I have never been a fan of fantasy anime series but HOLY COW this one is a 10/10.

Doroka first appears in the first episode (And So, Our Story Begins).

Locked up in prison, she gives away her food so her fellow cellmates stop fighting.

Doroka

We then learn that she has been doing this for multiple days in a row, showcasing just how much she puts others before her.

Amongst sexual harassment, public executions, exploding heads, and even the extermination of her entire species - Doroka remains peaceful and loving towards humans.

While our protagonist (Mr. Adonis) would rather burn the entire planet to the ground, she shows such kindness and forgiveness that sheโ€™s almost like an angel on Adonis his shoulders.

True waifu material!


Waifu Rating

Doroka hits #5 for being the angel in a world of chaos. Her kindness in the craziest situations is just mind-blowing.

#4 Raphtalia (Rising of the Shield Hero)

โ€œI will always be your sword masterโ€

Does that quote sound familiar?

Thatโ€™s right, it is the iconic line from Raphtalia the companion of Naofumi.ย 

Even though she was originally bought as a slave, Raphtalia shows unwavering loyalty towards Naofomi (her former master).

Her journey from a timid, scared little girl to a strong, confident warrior is nothing short of inspiring.

Raphtalia

She's not just loyal; she's the definition growth and resilience.

Raphtalia's character shines through her actions and her dedication to Naofumi, especially in those moments when she stands up to fight alongside him, despite her own fears.ย 

Remember the scene in episode 4, where Naofumi lost the duel and Raphtalia was set free?

Raphtalia and naofumi hugging

She still stuck by his side and even decided to get the slave mark (again).

It's moments like these that make her a standout waifu.


Waifu Rating

Raphtalia takes #4 with her journey from scared kid to fierce warrior. She's loyal, brave, and the kind of partner everyone needs in a pinch.

#3 Kyouko Hori (Horimiya)

Dummy, dummy, dummy, dummy, dummyโ€ฆ

*says dummy 1.000 more times*.

Every time I hear the word dummy I immediately think of Hori, from Horimiya.ย 
Herman Carter
AI Dating Expert | Menprovement

She's the queen of calling her love, Miyamura, a dummy, but in the most cheeky way possible.ย 

Kyouko Hori

Hori might come off as the โ€˜perfectโ€™ student with top grades and a friendly demeanor, but get her home, and you see a whole different side.ย 

*Kuch kuch* kinky roleplay.
Herman Carter
AI Dating Expert | Menprovement

Her dynamic with Miyamura is what sets her apart.ย 

She's not just a pretty face; she's got this fiery personality that makes her interactions with him so relatable and fun.ย 

Remember the episode where Miyamura changes his hairstyle and Hori's reaction is a mix of shock and happiness?ย
