There is no doubt that anime are nowadays filled with lolis, mainly because of their popularity.
You might be wondering: what is a loli? Well, a loli is a childlike female character in anime or manga. Not all lolis are underaged, though. Even an older female who has an underage physical appearance can be classified as a loli.
Lolis are made to look adorable and sweet and they would make perfect little kawaii sisters.
Here are the 10 most popular lolis (according to MAL)!

10. Kanna “Kanna Kobayashi” Kamui
- Series: Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid
This white-lavender-haired adorable cutie is actually a demi-human who can shapeshift into a dragon, which is her true form.
She got exiled from her world as a consequence of her pranks.
Despite being ~7000 years old she still behaves like a child and loves to play games.
9. Yui Hirasawa
- Series: K-ON!
Yui is a prime example of deredere. She is simply lovey-dovey!
She enjoys spending time with her friends more than anything, just hanging out and having fun. Yui is a very affectionate individual and loves physical contact with other people.
She also loves sweets and luckily doesn’t gain any weight from them no matter how much she eats!
8. Mio Akiyama
- Series: K-ON!
Mio is a timid and shy person who enjoys spending time alone more than your average K-ON! character. However, she is a very empathetic and sensitive girl.
Introverted by nature, she dedicates this “lonely” time mainly to songwriting and reading.
While the rest of the K-ON! cast are happy-go-lucky girls, Mio is a very diligent and responsible individual. She is also known for having good grades.
7. Kanade “Tenshi, Angel” Tachibana
- Series: Angel Beats!
This seemingly emotionless darling has another nickname: Angel. This name originates from believing that she is a servant of God because of her supernatural fighting abilities that are voice-activated.
She is actually a student council president at the Afterlife school tasked with the responsibility of ensuring that all of the students are able to cope with their personal problems.
6. Konata Izumi
- Series: Lucky Star
This little prankster is intelligent but extremely lazy. She loves to tease others more than anything, i.e. such as if they like someone. Unfortunately for her, laziness reflects in her grades.
Konata is mad keen on anime, manga, and adult video games.
- Series: No Game No Life
Shiro is a genius loli who is also a shut-in gamer. She is the best player in more than 280 games and a master of Chess who has won every chess game that she has played. On top of everything, this white-haired beauty can speak 18 languages!
However one can not be good at everything. While Shiro is a genius, she lacks emotional & social understanding, often relying on her step-brother to deal with problems related to emotions.
4. Homura Akemi
- Series: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Homura is considered to be one of the most nuanced anime characters. Sure, she is cute and all but her popularity stems predominantly from her personality and relatability.
As a Reddit user aofhaocv states, all she ever wanted was to protect her friend, and even after spending years and years reliving the same month and a half of hell ~100 times, her goal was ultimately stopped because of Madoka’s willingness to help others. Her need to protect Madoka gradually becomes an obsession, and leads her to take drastic measures to ensure that she is “safe.”
3. Shinobu Oshino
- Series: Bakemonogatari
It’s very difficult to not like an endearing legal vampire loli who has an unparalleled passion for donuts. And again, it’s not just the looks, she is a very well-written character.
Shinobu can be blunt, forgiving, and caring. These are all qualities I would love to see in myself.
What amazes me is that she voluntarily gives up her power in order to get the happiness she actually wanted.
2. Taiga Aisaka
- Series: Toradora!
Taiga is an example of a tsundere done right. She isn’t a tsundere because “she doesn’t care, baka”. She is a tsundere because of her life circumstances. Her past is dark and her broken family hurt her a lot. Thus, she unconsciously built a defense mechanism like this. This is, of course, not an excuse for her abusive behavior toward others. But at least it explains it.
What makes Taiga special is her personality transformation and successful deconstruction of the tsundere, allowing us to permanently see the real sweet Taiga that was previously hidden under the protective tsundere shell.
- Series: KonoSuba
The #1 most popular brown-haired anime girl and simultaneously the most popular loli is Megumin.
To simplify it for you, she is an explosion-crazed chuuni loli with a quirky personality and kawaii looks.
Is your loli on the list?
