We don’t know much about Ouka at this point in the story of 07-Ghost, but in a story that is curiously void of good female characters, Ouka stands out. It’s not just the contrast between her and the bubbly nuns and mermaid in the story, however. She’s got enough strong characteristics to hold her own.

Echo from Pandora Hearts...I think this is fan art...anyone know?Poor Echo. Servant to that cruel (yet sexy)bastard Vincent Nightray. She carries out her orders without complaint, but is still capable of thinking for herself and acting on her own impulses.


What else?

-Quick with the knife hidden up her sleeve. Invokes emotion in readers despite being emotionless herself.
-Harboring a split personality, she also has a different form that I will not name, for fear of spoiling it for you.

 

I think (and hope) Echo has a vital role to play in Pandora Hearts as the story plays out. A dual-natured character like hers could provide some crucial plot twists, and indeed, already has.

Alice from Pandora Hearts…what the heck is she really? She says she’s a “chain” born in the Abyss. She spends part of her time as a giant black rabbit that kills with a big scythe. (Spoiler alert: Supposedly she was human “before she died,” (WTF?) and there was also a girl named Alice (the same girl?) who was trapped in a tower for all or most of her life. She supposedly has a twin…but is it really a twin or does she just have a split personality?)

I can’t say too much about Madame Red without giving away too many spoilers for the Jack the Ripper story arc in Kuroshitsuji, but trust me that she is a woman with mission, and she will do anything to get what she wants.

We don’t meet Shijima until many chapters into Nabari No Ou, but once you ascertain certain key things about her, you realize she has in fact been lurking about the story in a different form since early on. I won’t spoil it for you, but consider her weapon of choice: claws.

Raimei Shimizu is one of the main characters in Nabari No Ou, and hell hath no fury like a 14-year old girl with a samurai sword who knows how to use it. She and her brother Raikou are the only remaining members of their family’s clan of samurai, and we are treated to some stunning sword battles between her and her brother.Read more and see the pics... )

Hanabusa Seki might be a minor character in Nabari No Ou, but she is one of my sentimental favorites. First of all, she’s forty years old (just two years younger than me) and she knits (just like me!

 

Hanabusa is one of the few characters in the story who has nothing to do with the hidden (nabari) ninja world. She accepts people at face value, and with a sweet smile, tries to get them to do right by each other. Quick with a hug and an offering of food, she’s the closest thing to a mother figure that poor, sad Yoite might ever see.

I'm not done profiling hot men, but it's also time for the ladies to get their due. Because a lot of what I read manga-wise is shounen (marketed toward boys) there tends to be a dearth of good female characters in much of what I read. So when I find a good one, I revel in her.

 

Stay tuned for profiles of some of my favorite female characters in manga.
