5/10 Orihime Inoue is written awkwardly but has her moments


Bleach Orihime Inoue arrives with bread

Orihime Inoue the deredere ranks among anime’s worst girls, not because of who she is, but how she’s written in Bleach. Unfortunately, Bleach made Orihime little more than Ichigo’s personal cheerleader and token love interest, so anime fans heavily favored Rukia Kuchiki over her.

On her own, Orihime is a top girl after all, though Bleach is reluctant to prove it. She is a kind and responsible friend that everyone can trust, and she is very brave despite her meager offensive powers. She is also one of anime’s greatest healers with her Shun Shun Rikka ability.

4/10 Ren Yamai is disturbing but still fun to watch

Lust is a twisted waifu who has looks that can kill, along with the Ultimate Spear to impale her enemies. Lust did serious damage to Fullmetal Alchemist’s heroes, but she was still a magnetic character who died a little too early, so anime fans miss her. It was also fun to see her date Jean Havoc while in disguise as “Solaris”.

2/10 Hayase Nagatoro is a good-hearted punk

Miss-Nagatoro-Anime-Season-2 (1)

1/10 The power is rough, annoying, crazy and awesome


Power grins while sideways

In-universe, the horned devil Power is despicable and almost impossible to like, but Chainsawman fans absolutely adore her as a bizarre new breed of best girl. In this anime, everyone is attached to Worst Girl and Worst Boy, so their scarce positive qualities really stand out.

Makt has terrible manners and is a selfish, selfish liar. She is also rude and messy at home, and she even betrayed Denji to the Bat Devil to get her cat, Meowy, back. But all of this only adds to her twisted appeal as 2022’s best weird female anime character that no one would actually want to date.
