Day 18: Favorite Female Anime Support Character | They also deserve a show of their own

Day 18: Favorite Female Anime Support Character | They also deserve a show of their own

Hi guys and welcome to my place!

It’s day 18 of my 30-ish Anime Challenge!!! First, let us see the list of the challenge (You can click any of the days before to go to the post of that day :P):

So, today we do the same exercise, but with females instead of males… Which only makes it all more difficult because I tend to like a larger amount of female characters than male characters lolol Like yesterday I will pick some side characters that I wouldn’t mind to see i a show as a main character. So, without furher a do, here is the one that instantly popped my brain:

Junko Saotome from Nana


Junko is like Hachi’s mother from afar. Even though they have the same age, Junko is really mature and she’s always there to have the best advise to Hachi, even if it is saying that she is doing everything wrong and need to get herself together! She reminds me a little of myself, I also say what I have to say and when you ask for advice it may not always be “yeah good job! You all my support!”, no on the contrary, if you are doing a stupid thing I will say you just that! I would love to see a slice of life with Junko as main character, even though she doesn’t have so many ups and downs as Hachi, it would be fun and relaxing to watch.

Mai Valentine from Yu-Gi-Oh!


I like badass female characters and Mai is just like that! She learnt how to live by her own and never rely in someone else to thrive in life. However, when she starts falling for Joey, it’s fun and heartwarming to see her losing some of her barriers, although it takes a lot of time. She’s a strong and independent woman and I love her for that. I would love to see the same events that pass in the Yu-Gi-Oh! through her perspective!

Inukashi from No.6


As Mai, she had to live on their own in a really difficult environment so she learnt to make her life without having someone to rely on, besides her dogs… And I mean let’s face it, who is the character that he’s loved by dogs if she’s not just awesome? I really like the Inukashi characters’ evolution as she also starts to break some barriers because of Sion. I would love to see a show featuring her life prior to the beginning of No.6, telling how was her life until she got the dog hotel idea going.

Tsunade from Naruto


Another female character that owns herself. Tsunade is just a boss. She’s strong, intelligent, kind and at the same loves to help others, that’s why she decided to go as a medical ninja. Even though she has short temper and, well… Try not to be near her when something doesn’t go her way, she really is someone who you can rely on when the situation needs. Well, I don’t know if I need a show with her as the main character, just because there were some fillers about her, so I think I’m good for now 😀

That’s all for today folks! What do you think about my picks? And who is your favorite female anime support character? Comment down below!

See Ya Tomorrow! 😀

  1. It’s so nice to see Mai Kujaku in this list! She’s amazing and definitely deserves more love (as well as Anzu). I’m pretty sure Inukashi is not a woman though, their gender was purposely left ambiguous…

    1. Yeah, but I do like more Mai than Anzu! Are you sure? I fot the impression that you find out that Inukashi is a girl in the scene where she pretends to be a prostitute for the guy that they need information or something like that, can’t remember… Afterwards, when she is stressed out and mad to the others because they took to much time to come out I really got the impression that she was female 😀

      1. Yep, there is one scene where they pretend to be a prostitute to get some information out of a No.6 resident and when Shion embraces them, he thinks that Inukashi’s frame is so small that they could be a woman, but the author never specifies it. I’m re-reading a fan-translation of the novel and the translator left a note to explain how the author doesn’t use gendered words with Inukashi.
        Which doesn’t make them any less badass of course 🙂

  2. If Tsunade got her own spinoff that would be pretty dope given there’s quite a bit they could work with, even Anko would be a good choice. I’m not too sure about Mai, she’s a decent character but compared to some others from the series like Rio (Yugioh Zexal) & the girl from 5ds she just seems lacking as a duelist and character.

    1. I never saw Yu-Gi-Oh zexal or 5ds… Maybe that’s why I chose Mai xD I think that if there was a small show featuring Mai her character could be developed a lot more xP regarding Tsunade, you are pretty right! XD I would love to see it, it would be really fun
