Beauty, Brawn, and Brains

More than a Body

This List is dedicated to Anime and Manga women who are not just alluring physically. They also have a strength to them. They also have a mind and show it. Far too often I see lists where the only category people use to define sexy is the body. While I'm not opposed to that ideal. To each their own. I like a little more. This also isn't just about being "cute". The women here have a certain sort of sensuality.

To make this list you can't just have some sort of amazing body or pretty face. The woman has to have a mind, know how to use it, and be strong.

Don't try to fool around with the hearts of these women. You are liable to get hurt. Unless you are into that sort of thing.

1. Motoko Kusanagi

The Major is the most powerful woman in her world. Everyone follows her lead. Don't call her an artificial beauty. She's custom made. She has a strong exterior, but I don't think she's always as controlling. Don't ask what she does with her spare bodies. That's just too creepy.

2. Olivier Milla Armstrong

Another commanding type. It's sooo thankful she doesn't take after her brother. Commander Armstrong holds the loyalties of all under her in the northern tundras of Briggs. Don't think her looks got her that position. She's one tough woman. If you are really lucky. You might get to help her stay warm at night. Ten Hut!

3. Yoruichi Shihoin

I'm normally a dog person, but I can not deny the appeal in this pussy cat. A former commander in the Soul Society. Yoruichi is a shape changer that could kick your ass ten times over before you blink. Bonus, she prefers being naked.

4. Nico Robin

Robin is a mature and elegant beauty. Well read, she is almost always reading a book in her free time. Her goal is to discover the mystery of the Missing Century. She's also a lovely woman who has a fondness for very sexy clothes. I could make a suggestion about her powers, but wont go there.

5. Saeko Busujima

Saeko is deadly beautiful and just plain deadly. Voted most likely to survive a zombie apocalypse and look great doing it. Just give her a weapon and get out of her way. Though, if you earn her admiration. She may just show you how much she appreciates it.

6. Satsuki Kiryuin

To say Satsuki is driven would be a gross understatement. This is a woman who's known what she wanted from a very young age. Rather than being a dreamer, she created a plan, and she trained her body and mind. You're welcome to follow her, but don't bring anything less than your very best. In or out of her kamui, she can make you suffer.

7. Rika Minami

Rika is a top-sniper of the SAT and in the top five shooters in the nation. She's smoking hot and a flirt, but she's not easy. She'll let you have a feel. You'll just need to be a better shot than her. Train hard, because that's one hell of a Grand Prize.

8. Kallen Kozuki

Don't let Kallen's bust fool you. She has top marks in her class despite fighting Britannia every night. The ace pilot of the Black Knights, but a tender, loving side if she realizes it. Just, if she asks you a question. ANSWER IT!

9. Eneus the Bergest

Cat ears may be seen as adorable to some people, but Eneus the Bergest makes them cute and tough. Once she was one of the toughest demons in the the realm. Now, she's the summoned familiar of Eitaro Sakuma. That hasn't weakened her in the slightest. Though still young, she has the mature beauty to rival her deadly combat skills.

10. Erza Scarlet

The outer shell of Erza's magical armor covers for a deep and warm heart. As one of the major three mages of Fairy Tail. She's the fighter you don't mess with. Follow the rules, work hard, and you may get to see if she has an armor for every occasion.

11. Tsunade

I know she's older then she looks. Mature women can be sexy too. Not only does she have a stunning bosom. She is the foremost expert in Medcial Justsu and runs the entire Leaf Village. Also, she is really bad at gambling. There is always Strip Poker. Just be really careful if she ever wins.

12. Riza Hawkeye

Who doesn't love a woman in uniform? Just don't try to get her to wear a mini skirt. She's the sure shot who always gets her target. If you are the right kind of guy. She may even let her hair down for you.

13. Nami

Nami has really become busty throughout the years. She may just officially be the navigator, but even Luffy takes orders from her. She's always right and you had better listen to her. She's willing to give you a look, but it's going to cost you. She's worth every Berry.

14. Izumi Curtis

Izumi is a happily married woman, but don't let that stop you from admiring her incredible skills as both an alchemist and fighter. Still, she has a tender heart. It shouldn't stop you from fantasizing, but just keep it at that. Her husband is a bear. Not literally, but close.

15. Irene Vincent

Rally is sexy and tough. She owns her own gun shop, and bounty hunts on the side. She probably knows more about the guns in her shop than the people who developed them. She's looking for a guy, but you better not be the kind that empties his load too fast. She keeps a gun under her pillow.

16. Yuriko Takagi

Yuriko Takagi is the mother of Saya Takagi. A former stock broker in New York, she married Soichiro Takagi and grew the family wealth proportions that nearly match her own.

17. Martel

A seriously underused character from Fullmetal Alchemist. I always liked Martel. I hate how she died. She was a soldier who was experimented on, but she got out and those snake powers makes her only more deadly.

18. Shakuyaku

Shakuyaku was at one time a pirate of an unknown crew. She is also somehow connected with the Pirate King's first mate Silvers Rayleigh. Now retired from piracy. This cool beauty runs the Skakky's Rip-Off Bar, and you have little choice but pay whatever she asks.

19. Ur

Ur is a supreme Ice Mage who taught Gray from Fairy Tail. That could qualify her as a cool beauty, but with a warm heart. If you are man enough to brave the cold. She does all her training in the nude.

20. Anko Mitarashi

Anko is a ninja from the Hidden Leaf Village, but has some abandonment issues. She was the solo pupil of Orochimaru and kind of reckless with her lives. Though, her love of Dango with red-bean soup makes her a cheap date. Downside is that she tend to like licking up blood.

21. Misato Katsuragi

I know. Misato could be kind of a ditz at times, but she really had her moments. I doubt she would of gotten the lead at NERV on just her looks. She could also kick some ass. Did you see EoE? She also did sort of put the moves on Shinji, but let's be honest. You know you were jealous of that whiner.

22. Hina

Hina is known as the Black Cage. A captain in the Marine fleet. She's a confident and ruthless fighter. She ate the Cage-Cage Fruit. If you step out of line with her. She'll just lock you up with ease, but you might be into that sort of thing.

23. Android 18

Another custom beauty. Android 18 is one alluring woman. Don't be fooled by appearances. For a time she was one of the most deadly women on the planet. It might not be too hard to get somewhere. She even gave Krillin a chance.

24. Cornelia Li Britannia

Cornelia is a high ranking member of the Britannain Army, but even despite her being the second-princess of Britannia. She doesn't command from the sidelines. She leads her own knights into battle, but I doubt they have much to complain about following up on her rear.

25. C.C.

C.C. will always be as beautiful as she is now. She doesn't just know history. She's lived it. Just don't expect it to last. Things just never seem to work out well for the guys in her life. She may also just try and use you, but that could be fun too.

26. Temari

Temari is a high ranked Ninja of the Sand Village and is as deadly as she is beautiful. If not more so. She is also a strategist of great skill and can match wits with Shikamaru, but she has the power of her own to back up her plans. She will literally blow you away.

27. Ai Haibara

NO, I'm not a Lolicon. Haibara is actually eighteen years old. She's a doctor in her own right. Though she was the one who finished the development of the drug that changed Shinichi into a child, APTX 4869. If he wants back. He's going to need her help.

28. Haruka Urashima

Haruka may not be as flashy as many anime/manga women, but you know she is the backbone of the Hina Inn. She's the down to Earth type of lady who knows how to handle herself. Who knows what she gets up to when she's not around. Downside? She's a smoker.

Seriously great list.

I hadn't paid attention so did you just make this and are they in a specific order? Your reasons for some of these women are from your greater experience with them (pun?). A couple I haven't even heard of and then I just have to disagree with your #2.

No, I made this list quite a while back.  I'm just randomly promoting it.
They are in order of my favorites. What's wrong with Motoko?
sotyfan16on Jan. 4, 2011 at 2:52 p.m.

I simply don't like Ghost in the Shell. I got 10 or so eps in and found everything boring. Now, I like the cyberpunk and steampunk genres but that anime just did not float my boat. Also, I'll admit Misato's talents but she's a huge bitch. You have a solid list nonetheless.

Excellent list! =)
coffeefuckyeahon Oct. 2, 2011 at 2:44 p.m.

Great List *, but Y NO Faye Valentine?

jnw93on May 23, 2012 at 4:47 p.m.

Cool list but, no Revy from black lagoon?

DBZ_universeon May 28, 2012 at 7:10 p.m.

nice list!

Gojira1234on April 12, 2013 at 12:25 p.m.
I love the list :3 But no Rei Miyamoto? Q~Q

The list is titled Beauty, brawn and brains, but I don't think Revy fits the third requirement :)
