20 Anime With Busty Characters That Are Larger Than Life

Anime is really special, there is no story that is not big enough, there is no plot that is too farfetched, and there is no limit to the amount of busty female characters shown on screen. I guess there is a reason why busty girls are so popular in the anime community (and beyond), everybody is fascinated with them.

Unfortunately most anime series with a cast of big-chested girls are pretty shallow. However, in order to supply the demand, I managed to find some hidden series worth watching, so let’s bounce right away to the main event.

1. Alex Benedetto from Gangsta

busty anime

Alex is the type of female character you never see in anime. She is a dark-skinned half-black, half-Chinese woman and a survivor of numerous traumas.

Her mother died at a young age, she suffered abuse, was made to be an addict, and had to take care of her brother with no support. As a result, she has no memories of the life she lived and of the family she once loved. Maybe that’s why she bites people when she’s angry.

Most of the time she’s inaudible, but she has a strong personality. As the anime progresses she recovers and deals with the trauma of what she went through. With her rare combination of traits Alex also has a big heart, she is kind and courageous.

Gangsta’s characters arc is fully fleshed out, it’s an anime that definitely delivers.

2. Mashiro Shiina from Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo

busty anime

A gifted painter girl who came from England to Japan with the goal of becoming a famous mangaka. Mashiro is a “special” girl. At first glance, one might think that she is originally from Mars; She is quiet, indifferent, and almost unaware of any accepted social norm. The only thing she did all her life was paint, so she is unable to take care of herself. At all.

Although it sometimes doesn’t seem like it, she is aware of the fact that she is a “hard nut to crack” and she is very grateful to Sorata who manages to deal with her and her unusual needs.

Even if Japanese romcoms aren’t your cup of tea, I think everyone can find something to like in this anime. it features a wide cast of great characters and stays fun and interesting. It deals with painful issues in a very honest way, full of grace and charm.

3. Makina from Deadman Wonderland

busty anime

There is nothing cheerful about Deadman Wonderland, it’s a brutal colorful action anime with good supporting characters. There are many characters who smile and laugh, but most of them are scary.

However, the one who caught my attention is Maknme, the former chief prison guard, a female character with impressive busty physics that somehow contributed to my growing affection for her. I wonder why. Maknma is an enforcer, who is willing to brutally punish the inmates.

She will also not hesitate to use her sword to cut whoever breaks her prison rules. She has an odd sense of justice, willing to commit crimes in order to solve bigger crimes.

4. Vladilena Milizé from 86 Eighty Six

busty anime

Vladilena is an officer of the Republic who has climbed the military ranks, partly due to her academic skills, but much of it due to a family connection.

Lena is not afraid to express an opinion against the disgraceful treatment the 86th receives, which is why she volunteers for a job that no one else around her wants to do: to be the operator of a unit made up of soldiers on the dangerous Eastern Front.

I was surprised to find a female character like Vladilena in a brutal military anime series like 86. Vladilena is an idealistic and naive young woman who is carefully developed with a lot of depth. This is an anime that knows how to play on the emotional strings and makes you fall in love with good, optimistic, and funny characters, many of whom meet their deaths in horrific ways.

5. Mima from Perfect Blue

busty anime

Blue, in Japanese culture, is a color that is mainly associated with young women. When a girl without a groom wears a blue yukata, she reveals to the world that she is pure.

Mima is the lead singer of the all-female Japanese pop band CHAM (nowadays her role is called an ‘Idol’) and like any good idol character approaching menopause (25), she decides that the world must take her seriously.

Mima retires from the life of glitter and skirts in order to crack an acting career. Not long after she starts her first role in a crime drama, the young star gets caught up in a real-life horror: an unknown fan took the transition seriously and calls Mima a ‘traitor’.

On the first viewing, I didn’t notice all the small details that make this anime great, there are a lot of different elements that blend in perfectly.

6. Marikawa Shizuka from High School of the Dead

busty anime

Marikawa is a school nurse bachelorette, a woman with the brain of a bird and the chest of a cow. Although her medical background the pandemic jumps to hysteria when the outbreak started.

If you thought the other girls on this list are fanservice, wait until you see Marikawa. Her favorite hobby is walking around with/without a towel because ‘my clothes are not wet, but who cares?’.

It’s a fun-trash anime where Half-naked busty schoolgirls fight zombies, the graphics are superb and the series is very colorful.

7. Shibata Katsuie from Oda Nobuna

busty anime

General Shibata Katsuie, aka Riku, is a female samurai general of the Oda clan. She exhibits an impressive proficiency in the art of samurai Kenjutsu during the series.

Katsuie is of course extremely duty-bound and can be quite brutal. In fact, she may just be the quickest character to resort to violence. It only takes one wrong phrase for her to draw her sword.

She is also depicted as a bit of an idiot and believes she has one function, to wield her sword for others and leave the heavy thinking to them. No surprise that her best solution for complicated threats is “Kill them all”.

The anime is partially based on historic events, but all generals are replaced with female characters.

8. Minare Koda from Wave, Listen to Me!

busty anime

Minar is a 26-year-old waitress with a radio show side gig. She is a hot head that first talk and then thinks, and jeez she talks like a tsunami wave.

She doesn’t mumble and knows what she wants to say, even if she does it in an associative way: Minara jumps from topic to topic as she sees fit, and this is one of the reasons she got her new radio job because speaking the way she does requires a bit of talent.

Wave, Listen to Me! is a very chaotic anime, bordering on the bizarre I would say, yet it’s funny and moving.

9. Yoko Littner from Gurren Lagann: The Lights in the Sky are Stars

busty anime

Yoko’s busty figure makes a comeback in a masterpiece sequel that makes the (partly tedious) episodical anime unnecessary.

Ms. Yomoko, aka Yoko Litner, is a teacher and a Sniper for Team Dai-Gurren. She is an excellent marksman with her rifle, able to take out two Gunmen alone and even without being injured.

Despite generally being a kind and caring person, Yoko can be aggressive at times. Also, don’t let the fact that she usually wears nothing more than a bra and underwear confuse you – she is actually quite modest! She wears this outfit because other clothes restrict her movements during hunting and fighting.

10. Isuzu Sento from Amagi Brilliant Park

busty anime

Isuzu is a strange girl with no social skills, due to her upbringing as a Royal Guard soldier. She is a resourceful and unshakable character who will do whatever it takes to get the job done. Her mission? to get Amaburi to earn 500,000 visitors so as to save the park. And guess what? She succeeds.

Amagi Brilliant Park has lots of moe characters, the anime is a feast for the eyes, full of nonsense. All the characters should be hospitalized and I admit it’s a classic comedy that gets everything right.

11. Seras Victoria from Hellsing

busty anime

Originally a human and a policewoman, Seras was turned into a Vampire by Alucard in an attempt to save her from a fatal gunshot wound in the chest.

She then became Alucard’s competent sidekick in his monster-hunting escapades. Seras can get bitey and sarcastic, especially when someone teases her about her look. She is also deeply focused on doing her job.

12. Nina from Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul

busty anime

Nina is a young girl who moved to the capital to work as a headhunter. She is a great heroine character, most of the time she’s charismatic, funny, innocent, and has a lot of power because she’s a dragon! Nina was born in a village where dragons can turn into humans and humans can turn into dragons.

The first half of the series is engaging and it kept me on my seat with expectations. Too bad that the second half destroys the whole story. Nina becomes a hopeless romantic teenager who falls in love with a tyrant king who imprisons her and tries to kill her. But that doesn’t sway her away from seeing butterflies flying around his head. So from excitement, the anime turns to annoying nonsense. Still, the first half is worth watching, and yeah okay, so is Nina’s bust.

13. Izetta from Shuumatsu no Izetta

busty anime

Izetta, a young witch enlists in the war effort. It turns out that a witch with a PTRS-41 rifle provides quite a strategic advantage. Let’s be honest, those who pick up the series do it for the busty witch, every time Izetta gets on her PTRS-41, her thin dress threatens to reveal what the young woman is wearing underneath. Hint: nothing (isn’t she cold?).

Instead of a great war story, ‘Izetta’ prefers to dwell on the relationship between the witch and the princess. And yes, they are good friends, good in the ‘Yuri on Ice’ Yuri genre. So there you go, you have a list of excuses to watch this anime.

14. Vert from Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Animation

busty anime

Vert is the human form of Green Heart, the goddess of the land of Leanbox. She is addicted to video gaming, which makes her seem tired due to often playing games instead of working. Her favorite type of games are shooting, fighting, racing and rhythm.

I was pretty excited to hear that Hyperdimension Neptunia was getting an anime adaption. I discovered that all my beloved “busty” characters got the adaptation they deserve.

15. Musubi from Sekirei

busty anime

Musabi has the 2nd largest bust out of all the Sekirei in the series, and she is a force to be reckoned with. Yes, she might be clueless and naive, but she has incredible strength. She is kind and wants to make everybody happy, and if that means she needs to free all the Sekireis so be it.

Musabi can smash buildings with her bear fists, she’ll be up for any challenge as she is always thrilled to get in a match with the strongest foes.

16. Angela Balzac from Rakuen Tsuihou

busty anime

Angela Balzac is a DEVA (an advanced space community) agent who was given an organic body. Her mission is to end Earth’s miserable human existence. Angela is a busty anime star, it’s hard to look away from her prominent chest and tight clothes that don’t leave much room for imagination.

Undoubtedly Angelas should have a separate place in the list of busty female anime characters. Her screen minutes surpass everything else. It’s hard to stay focused on the plot when Angela is around.

That’s why it’s also a drawback that hurts the anime: if it weren’t for Angela’s body, Rakuen Tsuihou would have entered the territory reserved for the ecchi harem genre. However, the plot is clever enough, the action is excellent and the characters are great. It does not bring anything new, but he does everything right.

17. Arte from Arte Anime

arte female busty anime character

Artea, a girl from a middle-class noble family, has just lost her father, which means that she can no longer paint in her spare time. Now she needs to find a man to marry and save the family from bankruptcy. But no social convention will dictate her fate, Arte just wants to paint, and she is willing to work hard to achieve the goal.

We are in the 16th century, a time when the concept that women could be good at art is bizarre and scary. Arte is not exactly a premium series. The opposite of that. But don’t judge me, okay? Once upon a time, I am also allowed to watch an anime series for its busty female characters, and it’s not that bad, after all, it has renaissance art and history.

18. Shiori Shinomiya from Sakura Quest

busty anime

Shiori serves as a member of the Tourism board in a godforsaken town called “Manoyama”. She is a conservative girl from a family of farmers who never left her hometown. Shiori is quite happy to stay home, cook, and do the daily chores.

Shiori doesn’t have big dreams, but rather a simple kind girl who wants to help the community. She’s a ray of sunshine and always keeps a positive face on, but inside she is torn as she sees the town she loves so much slowly fade away.

Sakura Quest doesn’t have the hormones and passion of young protagonists, but rather a sleepy, and that is the whole magic. It also has great sarcasm and wonderful humor.

19. Kochou Yoshida from No-Rin

busty anime

Yoshida is an inspiring acting student oozing with self-confidence. If there one thing actors hate is people with an ego, they resent them even more if they happen to be women like Yoshida.

Yoshida has to put on a facade and act snobbish to deal with her classmate reducing her to nicknames based on her physical appearance. I guess you also notice her, well, “Boin Yoshida”, look up the Japanese detention, you’ll get the cruel gag.

But, you shouldn’t judge a book by its, (rather busty), cover, she is a sensitive girl with a soft heart for animals.

No-Rin is deliberately presented as superficial and shallow at the beginning, but it’s a parody with ecchi elements. The dubbing team does a good job, and the voice acting team does a good job.

20. Ayame Shaga from Ben-To

busty anime

Ayame is half Italian head turner and the only known female wolf on the west side. She is responsible for the fanservice in the series. Ayame is one of the most stubborn and skillful Bento brawls fighters. Her weapon of choice in battle is chopsticks.

Ayame is easily insulted and gets annoyed by busty references. But no one can beat her in video games, she is a Saga addict who let her fingers do the talking.

Ben-To has depth, believe it or not. The familiar and known bullshit of overcoming obstacles with the power of friendship/faith/love and blah blah blah. It’s here, and it works even in this genre. And perhaps precisely because it’s an unconventional premise, these clichéd elements suddenly don’t seem so worn out
