In honour of International Women’s Day today, this gives us the pefect opportunity to talk about our favourite female characters that we have been loving and admiring as of recently (not that we ever need a reason or an excuse to do that). We love the villiains, the protagonists, the heroes, and we love the ones who blur the lines between them all! Here’s some names worth mentioning:
For the fans of Jujutsu Kaisen, it is no mystery why Nobara is on this list: as a genre that is typically aimed towards the male audience and falls victim to oftentimes appeal to the male gaze, an anime character like Nobara is refreshing and so empowering to see! She is strong-minded and spirited, unapologetic, brave and her determination to build a name for herself and become even more powerful is truly something remarkable. Not only that, but we see her as an actual human, with good and bad within her, instead of something idealised and unrealistic. She doesn’t fall into the trap of stereotypical female representation in anime but is instead out to challenge it and serve as a complete opposite to it!
