Over the past few years, we have seen a plethora of different kinds of characters. Everything from monster girls to vampires, every kind of character you can imagine has gotten some time to shine. One of these character types that may not get as much recognition are the devil characters. With Halloween just around the corner, what better time to look at some of the best devil girls that have appeared in the last few years than now? Today we are going to be looking at five devil girls that have been in an anime over the last five years.
5. Peach Maki (Hoozuki no Reitetsu [Hoozuki’s Coolheadedness])
The peach loving idol of hell may not be the first character you think of when you think of a devil, but Peach Maki more than earns her spot on this list. Maki's cute appearance and kind attitude normally make her one of the nicest demons in hell, however, there are a number of ways to get on her bad side. Maki hates shoplifters, and she is willing to do anything to stop them and make sure they receive the punishment they deserve.
4. Nina Drango (Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul [Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul])
Being the daughter of a dragon and a human, Nina Drago has connections to the human and demon sides of her world. Although Nina had a tragic incident in her past resulting in the loss of her father, Nina is still upbeat and happy-go-lucky. Due to her mixed lineage, Nina has super strength from her dragon side and isn't affected by the green stones used to hurt the angels and demons thanks to her human half. Nina also has the ability to transform into a dragon although she can't always control it.
3. Akane Koumoto (Jitsu wa Watashi wa [Actually, I am…])
Akane is an incredibly powerful candy-loving devil principal that loves to tease the students at her school. Not only does Akane look like a devil with the two horns adorning her head, but she also has a playful attitude that makes her all the more devilish. Nobody is able to escape the wrath of Akane's teasing, with her teasing everyone from her students to her granddaughter Akari who works at the school as a teacher. Akane is a fun character that makes the most out of her life by enjoying all the little things, even if it means causing trouble for everyone around her.
2. Mio Naruse (Shinmai Maou no Testament [The Testament of Sister New Devil])
Mio Naruse is a Demon Princess that inherited all of her demonic powers from her late father. One of the most powerful characters on the list, Mio is a slightly more typical devil type character thanks to her heritage, appearance, and her powers. Although she is normally calm, Mio has an inner fiery attitude that often comes out when she is irritated.
1. Satanichia Kurumizawa McDowell (Gabriel DropOut)
By far the most popular character on this list, Satania captured the hearts of many with her humorous attempts at proving she is a true demon. Satania's naivety and gullibility lead to her being constantly bullied by the angels Gabriel and Raphael, but these traits just add to her charm. Although Satania tries to show off her demonic side, she often ends up showing how kind she is, even willing to take care of the bread-stealing dog that has done nothing but cause problems for her. Despite her many failed attempts causing problems for the angles at her school, Satania may one day get the best of them her powerful demonic abilities and the ability to call a dragon familiar
