1. Ise Nanao (Bleach) - Powerful, humble, cute, able to keep up with the higher levels, knows how to deal with ppl, usually quiet yet can be extremely violent, strict and yet still has room for fun, not to mention, a VERY high tolerance of the 8th division captain. she could most likely kill him if she wanted to, but well, she's in love with him, so that won't happen.
2. ShihionYoruichi (Bleach) - badass of the badass! powerful, flaunts it, hott, she can turn into a fr*cken cat for crying out loud! Even has feline tendencies as a human, but has a habit of stripping constantly. (but at the same time, issues with the hairballs dude! eeeeewww!)
3. Scarlet Erza (FairyTail) - similar to Nanao, i guess all i can say is ditto of Nanao, but still a child.
4. Unohana Retsu (Bleach) - motherly, powerful, knowing, cunning, gentle yet wild, and humble, but all she needs is the ability to make the 11th division taicho tremble in his bells to tell that she is one of the dreadest women
5.Canaan (Canaan) - warrior, and kind of like Erza in her power and proctectivenes of those she cares about, abilities and techniques unrivaled by all other anime characters i've seen thus far, the artist literally breaks down her character while keeping a little mystery, the only problem is her emotionla state is that of a 3yr old.
6. Saya (Blood +) - sword, blood, vampire, chevalier (i.e.servant to wait on her hand and foot, not that she treats him like that), downside: extreme fatal bitch fits when woken ahead of time
7. Ookami Ryouko (Ookami-san) - granted she's a bit of a childish character, but the innocence coupled with her acute battle instincts and ignorance of what is right in front of her and i guess the whole 'i'll be fine by myself' macho act drew me.
8. Urd (Ah! My Goddess) - lol. this character is hilarious! she'd not as strong, but she knows how to use her powers, and while being a troublemaker, meddler into ppls love lives as well as being half angel and half demon, she's pretty interesting.
9. Belldandy (Ah! My Goddess) - she kind of like Unohana except without the whole make ppl shiver in their underwear, and she's a goodie two shoes, but she has her badass days
10.Tatsuki Arisawa and Shiba Kukaku (Bleach) - these 2 are a little phsyco, they have power, use it to their advantage sometimes but never lose sight of the bigger picture.
I couldn't decide who took last This is definitely not final though, since i have alot more anime to go... these were just my favs in the anime i have seen up till now.
