And, the best part is that they are kindhearted, outgoing, and have very captivating personalities.

So if you want to know everything about these girls, you’ll love today’s post.

Let’s jump right in!


Neptune – Hyperdimension Neptunia

Neptune from Hyperdimension Neptunia

You would have a better chance of finding the holy grail than to find a soul more joyful and exuberant than Neptune.

Watching her talk to people makes you feel like she has never known anything but happiness from the moment she was born.

In fact, even her appearance is that of a winter maiden as is shown by her light blue hair and her dress consists of a lilac hoodie which has a purple lining on it.

Most of Neptune’s friends are in awe of her strong sense of righteousness which comes from her immense confidence in herself and her abilities.

If people had Honoka’s ability to always look at the bright side of things, depression might just cease to exist! Honoka is another happy anime girl that people aspire to be like because of her optimistic personality, her intense desire to never give up, and her fearless confidence.

In addition, she has long orange hair and shiny blue eyes that also portray her cheery personality.

On the other hand, Honoka is not as intelligent as she looks which is exemplified by her inability to score well on her exam to get admitted into Love Live.

Unsurprisingly, the reason for her bad grades is her passion for composing and singing songs at concerts with her friends.


Yachiru Kusajishi – Bleach

Yachiru Kusajishi - Bleach

Yachiru is what is commonly referred to as a ‘loli’ but the difference is that Yachiru is actually a lot older than what she looks like.

Thanks to her persona which is that of a 5-year-old, she is always busy causing mischief and infiltrating people’s houses to steal candy and hot chocolate.

Despite Yachiru’s toddler persona, she is the lieutenant of the 12th squad, and to translate that in plain English: she is super strong.

She possesses the ability of ‘Shunpo’ aka flash step.

Furthermore, Yachiru is so jolly and airheaded that even in the presence of a bloodied corpse, she is seen to be smiling and playing around with that sickening red liquid.

As one of the top 10 most popular characters in all of Bleach, she never fails to add humor into our lives thanks to her highly comical interactions with the serious and super-strict captains.

Popura Taneshima - Working!!

‘’I’m 17! I’m in high school! “ is what Popura constantly has to exclaim to people because of her height (4’6 ft).

Popura works as a waitress at a restaurant called Wagnaria where people never stop assuming she is in middle school.

For that reason, Popura measures her height every day and prays that a day will come where she no longer has to raise her head up in order to speak with people.
