Anime Challenge #18 – Best Supporting Female Anime Character

This is a hard one. As I already said I’m usually more invested in supporting characters, especially the female ones. So it’s really, really hard to choose a single one. Still, I’ve tried and narrowed it down to two – Yuri Nakamura from Angel Beats and Kyou Fujibayashi from Clannad. Clannad and Angel Beats always come together, don’t they?

I’ve always found myself to be inclined more towards the strong and responsible female anime characters, which is the biggest reason why I am going with Yuri. She’s brave and bold but also has a soft side to herself. She’s smart and decisive, which makes her a perfect leader. She’s not only powerful but also witty and has a great presence of mind. I also really like her boldness, tenacity and confidence. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to accurately describe why I like her so much, but I just do. She’s a very likable character.





Kyou Fujibayashi

Kyou is not only strong willed and audacious, but she’s also caring and kind hearted. First of all her love for her sister is so selfless and pure. She’s willing to sacrifice her own feelings for her sister’s happiness. She is determined and hard working and actually fulfilled her career aspirations. She may be downright cold at times, but she was never conniving or malicious. Basically, she’s my favourite character from Clannad along with Fuko, and I really admire her personality and confidence. I had found her character quite intriguing right from the start.




Both Kyou and Yuri are slightly similar as they’re both audacious and confident and have well developed personalities. But I personally like both of them individually and equally.

What about you? Who is/are your favourite female anime character(s)?

    1. Actually I do have an Anime Challenge tag. But I’m not sure if it’s there on the menu (I’ll have to check). Thanks for the suggestion though. I’m glad you like these posts. 🙂
      Ohh that’s awesome. How do you like it so far? The first season is pretty great.

      1. Yeah, I thought Kanade was pretty much a non-character. I never felt a single emotion that was even slightly connected to her. They can’t just drop a massive character revelation at the end and expect me to start caring about the character.

  1. This reminded me of a couple of my personal favorite female supporting anime characters, Kawashima Ami, from Toradora and Hiratsuka-sensei from Oregairu. Both of them are responsible for pushing the story forward and making the protagonist face reality, although this is more subtle in Ami’s case. I think she’s my favorite character in Toradora. I love the way she calls out Takasu for “playing house” with Taiga. She was the first person to point out that someone would inevitably get hurt.

  2. Darn it! I haven’t watched either of these series but I’ve heard some really great thins about the both of them, especially Angel Beats. But since I like her purple hair, I vote for Kyou LOL. They both seem like some pretty cool characters though!
