There are just some anime characters that get on our nerves. The most hated girls in anime usually display similar negative characteristics. Most of them tend to be rude, demanding, whiny, and bossy. We actually think our favorite anime series would be better without them around. We may be able to tolerate them if they don’t appear so often, but it can be unbearable when the annoying characters happen to be among the main characters. The storyline of the anime series may be good, but annoying lead characters can really ruin the show. Read on our rants on whom we think are the top 10 most hated girls in anime:
10. Mayuri Shiina from Steins; Gate
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Apr. 2011 - Sep. 2011
Mayuri Shiina is a childhood friend of Rintarou Okabe. She works part-time at a maid café and she enjoys cosplaying. She has a childish and naïve personality which is likely attributed to her inability to accept her grandmother’s death. Daru often makes perverted comments but Mayuri does not question them, which is probably because she does not really understand them.
In a group full of intellectuals, Mayuri Shiina stands out like a sore thumb. Is she seriously that dumb to not be able to remember the phrase “El Psy Congroo” despite being corrected by Rintarou Okabe countless of times? She is basically a useless character all around, but she plays the role as a person who dies and needs to be saved. For that, we are thankful because it means we get to see her less often.
9. Chi Chi from Dragon Ball
- Episodes: 153
- Aired: Feb. 1986 – Apr. 1989
Chi Chi is the wife of Son Goku to whom she bore two children named Son Gohan and Son Goten. When she was a kid, she was portrayed as a shy girl, but in later years, she exhibits a fierce personality. Chi Chi is shown as a nagging and over protective mother who highly values education.
What’s more important: Saving the world or studying? Apparently the answer is studying. LOGIC! Even when the world is about to end, Chi Chi places so much more importance on Gohan’s education, that it absolutely makes no sense. Even as a tiger mum, she should be smart enough to realize it. But no, she just has to bug Goku all the time to stop training Gohan for the war that is about to come, because studies come first!
8. Karin from Naruto Shippuuden
- Episodes: Unknown
- Aired: Feb. 2007 - Current
Karin is a subordinate of Orochimaru. She also took part in the Chuunin Exams held in Konohagakure. When she was attacked by a bear, Sasuke saved her and she fell for him. She is a descendant of the Uzumaki clan. Karin can heal others by allowing them to bite her. She can heal herself by biting herself as well. Besides that, she has the Mind’s Eye of Kagura which enables her to detect others’ chakra effortlessly.
Karin is a fangirl of Sasuke who appears in Naruto Shippuuden. Sasuke is obviously not interested in her but she continues to shamelessly pursue him. Like seriously, just go away. The way Karin tries to seduce Sasuke is just so cringey. And the fact that she keeps the umbilical cord of Sasuke’s kid just shows how creepy she is.
7. Sakura Haruno from Naruto
- Episodes: 220
- Aired: Oct. 2002 – Feb. 2007
Sakura Haruno is assigned to Team 7 alongside Naruto and Sasuke, under the guidance of Kakashi. Sakura was often teased by others for her large forehead, so she tried to cover it with hair but Ino encouraged Sakura to embrace her large forehead instead. Sakura then develops a crush on Sasuke who is popular among many girls.
Most female characters are portrayed to be silly fan girls in the Naruto universe. Almost all of them fall for Sasuke at first sight, and Sakura is the most hardcore fangirl of all. She broke up her friendship with Ino after discovering that Ino also liked Sasuke, even though Ino was her best friend who had helped her out. Ino didn’t even initiate breaking up their friendship when she knew that Sakura had feelings for Sasuke. Sakura is just completely obsessed with Sasuke and always treats Naruto like crap. She always beats Naruto up for the silliest reasons. She deserves neither of them. Sakura is even more annoying than Karin because at least Karin has a more valid reason to love Sasuke as Sasuke saved her life. On the other hand, Sakura is just stupidly in love with Sasuke even after he treated her badly. At least Karin woke up and moved on from Sasuke.
6. Kagome Higurashi from Inuyasha
- Episodes: 167
- Aired: Oct. 2000 – Sep. 2004
Kagome is a teenage girl born in modern Japan and is pulled down a well by a yokai on her fifteenth birthday. She unknowingly possesses the Shikon no Tama which many yokai aims to obtain. Being dragged down the well, she finds herself in ancient Japan. Kagome is saved by Inuyasha but the Shikon no Tama breaks into pieces.
Kagome is a weak character which becomes a burden to the protagonist, Inuyasha. She gets to control Inuyasha with the use of the special beads around Inuyasha’s necks. Therefore, she constantly abuses the power of the beads, and also screams at him. You may think that it’s cute, but we think this abusive behavior is hateful. We actually think her lookalike, Kikyo, is hell a lot better since Kikyo can actually fight instead of whine.
5. Erina Nakiri from Shokugeki no Soma (Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma)
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Apr. 2015 – Sep. 2015
Erina Nakiri is a pampered rich girl who is also highly attractive. She has the rare ability called God’s Tongue which enables her to taste food with great accuracy. Erina is infamous in the culinary industry due to her extremely sensitive taste buds, so amateur chefs are afraid of her.
We all know that one person in real life who is a know-it-all and acts like he or she is better than everyone else. In Shokugeki no Soma, Erina Nakiri is the embodiment of that character. Due to her reputation, Erina looks down on others whom she thinks are common. Her Divine Tongue ability makes her bitchy and cruel in passing judgements instead of being encouraging to others.
4. Satomi Murano from Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu (Parasyte: The Maxim)
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Oct. 2014 – Mar. 2015
Satomi is Shinichi’s best friend and the two later develop a romantic relationship. For the most part of the series, Satomi does not know about Migi, which leads her to constantly question Shinichi about his changed behavior.
It appears as if all the main female characters in Parasyte are dumb, and Satomi Murano is not an exception. Instead of being understanding, she is so fussy and sensitive over tiny issues. In most of the episodes, she keeps muttering the same sentences, which are basically on how Shinichi has changed. Her continuous bugging is just annoying so it is really hard to like this character. With so many characters in the series dying, we hope that she would be one of them, but she unfortunately survives because she’s not in Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead.
3. Mari Tsutsui from Nijiiro Days
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Jan. 2016 – Jun. 2016
Mari is best friends with Anna whom she claims to be in love with. She has an aggressive personality, mainly towards men as she is a man-hater. She is shown to be especially rude towards the main male characters in the series.
Mari hates guys and she somewhat reminds us of extreme feminists who seem to get triggered by every small thing. By definition, feminism sounds like a nice thing, but many self-proclaimed feminists are giving others a bad image of the feminist movement. Mari is very selfish and intrusive as she wants to impose her hatred of men on others. She tries to protect her best friend, Anna, from the evil that is men instead of being happy with her friend’s love life. Anna should just find a new best friend.
2. Pan from Dragon Ball GT
- Episodes: 64
- Aired: Feb. 1996 – Nov. 1997
Pan is the granddaughter of Son Goku and Mr. Satan. Her parents are Videl and Son Gohan. She is ¼ Saiyan. Pan is often seen dressed in a red crop top and jeans, with a bandana on her head. She has a fiery temper and can be seen blaming others or storming off when things do not go as planned.
Pan from Dragon Ball Z was okay, as she was just a tiny kid who was really hard working in training herself. Suddenly, when it comes to Dragon Ball GT, she becomes an obnoxious brat who causes nothing but trouble for the group. She is a major reason why the series isn’t as great as it should be. Who actually thought it was a great idea to include such an annoying brat as one of the main characters? She is weak and all she does is scold everyone around and be such a useless crybaby. The series would have been so much better if Goten get on board the spaceship instead of Pan. Goten and Trunks had such great amity in Dragon Ball Z that it’s a pity we cannot see much of it in Dragon Ball GT because of Pan.
1. Haruhi Suzumiya from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
- Episodes: 14
- Aired: Apr. 2006 – Jul. 2006
Haruhi Suzumiya is a teenager who is eccentric, jovial and unpredictable. She is interested in the unusual such as time travelers, aliens, and espers. Thus, she finds regular people to be boring and uninteresting. This leads to many of her classmates avoiding her.
Haruhi Suzumiya is one obnoxious brat. We get it that she’s hyper, but instead of doing things by herself, she bosses others around to do things against their will. What she does to Mikuru is considered bullying. For instance, she grabs the president’s hand to grope Mikuru’s breasts. She does not even feel remorseful of her terrible actions towards others. If Haruhi exists in real life, she would be at the receiving end of a mighty punch.
This wraps us the list of our top 10 most hated girls in anime. Which other anime girls do you hate? Let us know! We know there is an army of them…
