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.
Thank-you for reading 100 Word Anime.

I will add Kana from Kobayashi-san chi no maid dragon.
Enma Ai will always be a favorite. She’s a great combo of cute and creepy
Agreed, she has a great mix of cute and creepy.
I’d throw in Yukina (Yu Yu Hakusho), Rem and Ram (Re:Zero), Jahy (The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated) and Piscalat (The Idaten Deities Only Know Peace).
Piscalat could be an interesting addition to the list.
I never liked demon girls since they are, well, demons. However, the way they are being portrayed in anime by the Japanese seems like it’s okay to have them which makes me believe it is another case of whitewashing, in which I cannot tolerate.
Maybe I’m just a bit overly sensitive, but Ai belongs in what I’ll call my “firsts” category. First time I realized a Vocaloid could actually emote? Hatsune Miku singing “Love is War.” First time I thought that science fiction could be fun? Stumbling into Doctor Who at the height of the Tom Baker years. And the first time an anime character’s situation just emotionally devastated me to the point of me walking outside, crying, and repeatedly punching a building? Watching Ai get violently killed and then her fear and youth being taken advantage of to recruit her into Hell’s service.
Aletta, from Restaurant to Another World.
I didn’t really get very far into that one. Still, she does look cute.
Aletta was a cutie. And her story was just so endearing, especially the way she was found in restaurant and recruited onto staff. . .
I was a big fan of Hell Girl for the first couple seasons.
I really kind of like Mirajane from Fairy Tail. She has that Satan Soul thing going.
I don’t think I’ve gotten that far through Fairy Tail. Or if I did, I’ve forgotten.
Fairy Tail is an underrated masterpiece. Everything in Nauruto plus lots of fan service.
Nezuko is great. If I ever go back and watch the rest of Demon Slayer, she’d be the biggest reason why.
My own vote for a cute demon girl would go to Etna from Disgaea, though that’s more for the video game than the anime, which was awful.
Haven’t played or watched, but I’m guessing I probably shouldn’t bother with watching it.
