Most Crazy Anime Girls
25. Haruhi Suzumiya (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
Haruhi might not seem that crazy initially, but her boredom could end the entire world!
She aims to find interesting things, such as aliens, time travelers, and espers, so she starts a school club with that purpose. Unbeknownst to her, she ends up recruiting those exact eccentric entities!
Furthermore, she is an eccentric entity herself. She has god-like powers that can destroy and create the universe itself. However, she is oblivious to it, and her sudden boredom and mood swings can implode reality at the drop of a hat!
24. Kafuka Fuura (Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei)
Unlike other characters in this list, Kafuka doesn’t display the typical crazy anime girl behavior. She’s not a yandere or a psychopath, nor does she display violent tendencies.
However, her positivity and optimism are insane! She can find one good thing in very grim situations.
One example early in the show was when Zetsubo-sensei hung himself on a tree. Kafuka then concludes that it’s fantastic that he’s making himself taller.
In another episode, another character decides to communicate or read her through her eyes. That character ends up running away from utter fear!
23. Tomoko Kuroki (WataMote)
The awkward and utterly socially inept Tomoko joins our list of crazy anime girls due to her wild, grim, and perverted imagination!
Tomoko spent a lot of time on dating games and thought that would be enough to make her popular in high school. Reality came crashing down when she realized she fit the “unpopular girl” stereotype.
A lot of the hilariously awkward and disturbing scenes in the show are from her daydreams and thoughts. She can get pretty grim and perverted, like when she thinks about her death or her fascination with underwear.
22. Hana Midorikawa (Prison School)
While Prison School has other crazy anime girls, we end up picking the sweet and tough but unhinged Hana for her obsession and “peeing incident” with the show’s protagonist.
Hana seems like a kind and innocent gal at first, but underneath that gentle cheerfulness is a violent karate expert who keeps getting into compromising positions with Kiyoshi.
In one instance, she drank too much of her favorite dandelion tea that she ended up peeing in the woods, with Kiyoshi accidentally seeing her. Hana’s response? She asks him to pee on her!
21. Yukako Yamagishi (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable)
Yukako is the kind of gal who becomes obsessed with something she likes. Unfortunately for Koichi Hirose, she develops a crush-turned-obsession on him!
On their date, Yukako first appears to be sweet and demure, but her nutty nature immediately shows through her intense rage.
She finds perfect people boring and instead loves imperfect people with potential. However, she becomes so forceful in molding Koichi into an idealized version of him that she ends up kidnapping him!
20. Nina Einstein (Code Geass)
Nina started as a timid and nerdy student who looked up to Euphemia and even treated her like a goddess. She was part of the circle of friends Lelouch had in school.
Unfortunately, she has an unfavorable mindset toward Elevens, and it only gets worse after the Euphemia incident. She became unstable and wanted to wipe off all Elevens using a weapon of mass destruction that she created.
Interestingly, unlike other characters, she doesn’t feel superior over Elevens, but her treatment of them stems from fear and an implied traumatic event in her past.
19. Akane Hiyama (Renai Boukun)
With her beauty and seemingly sweet nature, it’s no surprise that Akane is her school’s idol. However, this pretty and popular girl harbors yandere-like love towards the protagonist.
Her love for Seiji is so intense that she’s willing to kill anyone, even herself, just for him. She gets vicious if she sees anyone get close or express any interest in Seiji.
Poor guy. He didn’t expect a yandere school idol at all.
18. Haruko Haruhara (FLCL)
As Mabase City’s newest resident, Haruko turned the world of some of the city’s inhabitants upside down, particularly 12-year-old Naoto’s life.
In the first episode alone, Haruko runs him over with her Vespa, gives him CPR, and hits his head with an electric bass. She then becomes his live-in maid, which results in more crazy hijinks.
Haruko seems to have a lot of personalities that she uses according to the situation. Her default is being aloof but forceful and selfish, but she can be motherly, seductive, or playful.
With Haruko, you’ll never know what crazy situation you’ll be in with her!
17. Hange Zoe (Attack on Titan)
Compared to other crazy anime girls on this list, Hange isn’t a stalker, a sadist, or a yandere. However, her obsession and devil-may-care attitude towards her Titan research has made her worthy to be included here.
The people in her kingdom are understandably terrified of Titans. But Hange? She gives them nicknames and calls them her babies. She even cried when their captive Titans were mysteriously killed.
Her Titan obsession even jokingly creeped out Eren! But overall, Hange is one cool character.
16. Clementine (Overlord)
Often, characters become evil and sadistic due to their traumatic past, upbringing, or environment. But Clementine? Nope, she says she has always been sadistic!
There’s no reason or rhyme for her psychopathic ways. She claims nothing influenced her to become a monstrous torture machine. She just really loves inflicting pain on others.
Watching her gleefully hurt others definitely creeped us out. She’s one crazy anime girl, alright.
15. Ophelia (Claymore)
She might look calm, but she’s actually anything but that!
Ophelia initially shows a playful and whimsical attitude toward others. However, those surface-level traits hide her bloodlust and sadistic ways.
She loves harming and bleeding others and is creepily gleeful at the thought of blood. She’s technically not allowed to harm humans, but she does not care for the rules.
Ophelia has even harmed her comrades just to sate her desire to kill and mutilate. Creepy and crazy!
14. Esdeath (Akame ga Kill)
Esdeath follows the belief that the strong survive while the weak should die. She uses this rule towards her enemies and as the leader of the Three Beasts and Jaegers.
Not only is she vicious, but she is also a sadist and a manipulator. She has no empathy towards the weak and even enjoys torturing her enemies. If she ends up killing innocents who are in her path, it’s no big deal for her!
But despite this, Esdeath cares for her subordinates. In return, they are intensely loyal to their barbaric ice queen.
13. Yumeko Jabami (Kakegurui)
The iconic queen of crazy anime girl expressions graces our list!
Yumeko shows her unhinged nature when it comes to gambling. Whenever she takes risks or almost loses, she feels excitement like no other! It’s the rush and thrill of the game that makes her come back for more.
She even wants her friends to feel the same excitement she gets, so she pushes them to play riskier gambling games. That’s totally being a bad influence on your friends, but to be fair, she means well.
12. Yuki Takeya (School-Live)
Traumatic events and survivor’s guilt can wreak havoc in one’s mind, which is, unfortunately, the case for Yuki.
After a zombie attack that killed almost everyone at school, Yuki couldn’t handle her new reality, and she developed delusions to protect herself. She became cheerful again with these lies.
She believes she is simply hanging out and camping at school with her friends doing School Living Club activities. However, when her reality creeps up and cracks the facade, she panics and breaks down.
This is the sad kind of crazy anime girl.
11. Satou Matsuzaka (Happy Sugar Life)
Despite its title, this anime is anything but sweet.
It’s full of broken and demented people, and the protagonist, Satou, is unsurprisingly—or surprisingly if her pink hair tricked you—one of these deranged characters.
Due to her unfortunate upbringing, Satou developed a warped understanding of love. She later channeled that emotion to Shio, a lost little girl whom she picked from the streets.
Satou keeps Shio hidden in her apartment. On the outside, Satou acts like a sweet and kind girl, but her real personality is an evil manipulator who’s obsessed with Shio.
She will do anything to keep her for herself. Scary.
10. Hibana Daida (Deadman Wonderland)
Deadman Wonderland is another anime that’s full of crazy characters. But the stand out among this myriad of lunatics is Hibana.
She grew up with an abusive mother who relentlessly tortured and punished her. As a result, she became violent herself and developed a twisted way of dealing with things.
She ended up killing and torturing her classmates over a childish grievance. It is also implied that she did the same thing to her mother.
9. Anna Nishikinomiya (Shimoneta)
Anna’s naivety and innocent nature make her super oblivious to lewd things that she often doesn’t know that she’s being inappropriate and crazy!
She confuses love, lust, and obsession and becomes a stalker to Tanukichi, to the point that she forces herself on him, bakes him cookies with her “love nectar,” and even becomes a yandere to him.
Although her actions are played for laughs, we consider her creepy and absolutely insane!
8. Ragyo Kiryuin (Kill la Kill)
Not only is Ragyo obsessed with aiding cloth aliens to take over the world, but she is also one terrible mother who abuses and mistreats her daughter.
She is not above killing her loved ones, even her own flesh and blood, just to get what she wants. Interestingly, she treats her loyal subordinates well, although they also have their own flavors of crazy.
Suffice it to say, Ragyo won’t be getting any “Best Mom” mugs anytime soon.
7. Tanya (Tanya the Evil)
Yep, from the title alone, Tanya is pretty much an evil psychopath compressed in a little girl’s body. She is cold, calculating, and ruthless and only sees others as objects she can use.
She is actually an ordinary Japanese salaryman reincarnated as a nine-year-old girl in an alternate war-torn Europe.
Due to her impressive strategic talents and ruthlessness on the battlefield, she became a useful asset in the war and eventually became the leader of a battalion.
6. Shion (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
Shion is well-remembered by fans as the creepy and psychotic twin who descended into madness and casually tortured and killed people.
The main reason for her mental breakdown is the disappearance of Satoshi, whom she developed feelings for. She vowed to exact revenge on the people she thinks is the cause of her beloved’s suffering.
She went too far, though. Imprisonment, stabbing, and tasing? Her torture methods were too scary and crazy!
5. Lucy (Elfen Lied)
Elfen Lied’s story is crazy and violent, so it’s no wonder that its protagonist is also considered one of the most crazy anime girls. In fact, Lucy’s overall character and morality are hard to put into words.
Due to who she is, Lucy grew up in a cruel environment void of any care or love. She was experimented on, tormented, and tortured just for being one of the specially evolved species.
In return, she also became a tormentor. She has a sadistic side that would harm anyone in her way. Her cruel past even led to her mental breakdown.
She tries to atone for her sins, but being free from the shackles of your past is a hard feat to do.
4. Himiko Toga (My Hero Academia)
Himiko is a major antagonist in My Hero Academia. She might be smiling most of the time, but her gleeful expression creeps out a lot of people!
Her smile hides a sinister side of her, which is her twisted understanding of love and friendship. She gets obsessed and attaches herself to anyone she wants to be friends with, to the detriment of her targets.
Numerous times, characters have expressed uncomfortableness whenever Himiko forces herself to them. And on top of her creepy behavior, she consumes blood!
Yep, her Quirk can copy others if she consumes their blood. That’s the creepy cherry on top of this multi-layer of creepiness!
3. Kotonoha and Sekai (School Days)
This is a 2-for-1 entry, but honestly, it’s just difficult to pick which one of these girls deserves a place on our list.
One could argue that these two girls are innocent victims of that trash called Mikoto, but we can’t deny that their actions towards the end of the story are vile and crazy.
After being used and lied to by Makoto, Sekai ends up stabbing him and cutting his head off. In her crazy and dazed state, she presents his head to Kotonoha.
Kotonoha, who’s also a victim of Makoto’s lies, became mad herself at the sight of Makoto’s severed head. She ends up killing Sekai and even carving out her stomach to see if she’s really pregnant with Makoto’s baby.
And now you know why School Days is notorious in the anime community. The ending was so brutal and insane that it was canceled on TV.
2. Yuno Gasai (Future Diary)
For a lot of anime fans, Yuno is the Yandere queen! With her obsession and her true ruthless personality, there’s no way we wouldn’t include her in a list of crazy anime girls.
Her parents’ cruel treatment of her drove her to be mentally unstable. But in this darkness, Yukiteru became her light when he promised her a happy married life in the future.
Since then, Yuno dedicated herself to Yukiteru. During the events of the Survival Game, she would go to great lengths to ensure her and Yukiteru’s survival, even going so far as killing other participants and even attempting to harm his friends.
At one point, she even kidnapped Yukiteru! Yandere fans, please explain the appeal of this because, to us, it just looks scary.
1. Junko Enoshima (Danganronpa)
Our pick for the craziest anime girl is Junko Enoshima from Danganronpa!
As a self-proclaimed fashionista, she’s probably the best-dressed among the crazies on this list. Not only is she pretty, but she’s charismatic to boot. She really got everyone fooled by how air-headed and girly she is.
But the real Junko is full of apathy and obsessed with despair. She absolutely cannot stand boredom and would rather be entertained by someone’s despair and torment. She even welcomes her own demise.
On top of that, she can even imitate others just for the heck of it and can switch between personas seamlessly. It’s truly creepy to behold!
How’s that for the creepiest anime girl on our list?
