Alright, we’ve had a plethora of cute anime demon girls showing up recently and they aren’t exactly a new trend so today I’d like to count down the 5 demon girls I think are the cutest (keep in mind this is cute not sexy – that would be a very different list). However there are so many to choose from so I’ve pretty much narrowed it down to character design for my choices and as always I’d love to know who your favourite cute demon girls are.
Number 5: Latina from Uchi no Musume
Generally I do avoid putting new anime on top 5 lists, particularly as I have no idea how the characters will change or develop as the series goes. However, given I’m basing this list on character design I think most people would be hard pressed to tell me that Latina is not a cute demon girl. She’s actually just this side of a adorable and I think if I’d had a few more episodes she’d be much higher on the list.
Number 4: Ai Enma from Hell Girl
While I’ve never been the biggest fan of Hell Girl, I can really take it or leave it, Ai Enma has always been a character I’ve liked the look of. She is seriously cute in a reserved and serious kind of way and honestly she just makes me want to hug her. Probably not such a great idea, but she’s still pretty adorable.
Number 3: Maou from Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
I may be stretching the definition of ‘girl’ on this one but there’s something inherently cute and girly about this demon lord. The way she playfully breaks down the hero’s preconceptions and recruits him to her side and even the way she negotiates with the merchants is just cute and delightful to watch. Besides, the horns on the head-band are what really gave her the place on the list. A demon concerned with keeping up appearances who knows how to accessorise totally deserved a spot on the cute anime demon girl list.
Number 2: Ririchiyo from Inu x Boku
Another cool and quiet kind of cute, but adorable nonetheless. Here the cuteness comes in the gap between her calm and sometimes quite cold exterior and her inner freak outs as she starts having feelings for others but doesn’t know how to deal with them. I love the episode where she’s trying to figure out how to invite Miketsumaki to tea and is writing out each scenario before scrunching it up in frustration. Totally adorable.
Number 1: Nezuko from Demon Slayer
Right, so when it comes to cute designs, they pulled out all the stops with Nezuko. Whether it is her big, expressive eyes, her two toned hair, the adorable way she just kind of goes to sleep or kicks her legs into the air while lying on the mat, she’s just all kinds of cute. Of course, she’s also all kinds of dangerous if you happen to be on the side that she considers to be an enemy so probably wise to remember that kittens are cute but they have some sharp claws.
Here we are at the end of my top 5 cute demon girl list. Now it is your turn to share.
