    I know this is a semi old list but I thought I’d point out that Witch Hunter Robin is on Funimation right now for anyone interested.

    Great list! I’ve watched a couple of the above, so I trust your taste (Moribito & Claymore & Nana, of which I love them alll). Starting Yona now! Thanks for the great recommendations.

      You’re welcome! I absolutely love Yona of the Dawn! Hope they come out with another season soon! If not, there is the manga! <3

    Well, this might not apply since the girl characters aren’t the only main character but give Fairy Tail a try. I really loved it. It has some Badass female characters with pretty sad pasts. But it’s an overall great anime/manga.

    kino’s journey, princess tutu, spice and wolf.

    Claymore is great, but I don’t know if the fit the ‘Zero F’s Given’ criteria as they try to humanize the half-breeds with the emotional aspect of the character development dealing with having to be these stuck-in-the-middle creatures. Black Lagoon would be perfect, as all the females are badass mercs would don’t back down or take no ‘ish and don’t give a fahhhhk, and there are a lot of these females in this show.

  6. Jackson Wyndow says:

    You mention Hellsing Ultimate, but that show has two strong female leads (Seras and Integra).

    Also, Black Lagoon.

    Did you leave out Alita from Battle Angel Alita because she’s only found in manga or because she does “give a f***” in some cases?

    1. Katy Castillo says:

      I haven’t seen that show so I can’t say if it fits the criteria or not, but I will look into it! Thank you!
