Top 10 Little Sisters in Anime! [2023 Edition]

Little sisters are a vital part of anime culture, whether they're on good terms with their older siblings, being protected, or doing the protecting themselves. Even if you're not a fan of 'em, there's got to be someone who comes to mind when you hear "little sister." Anime!Anime! took a survey to find out just who that is, so let's see who's the biggest little sister this year!

10. Nemu Aohitsugi, Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle
9. Gin, Bungo Stray Dogs
8. Suguha Kirigaya/Leafa, Sword Art Online
7. Komachi Hikigaya, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU
6. Raiha Uesugi, The Quintessential Quintuplets
5. Ruby Hoshino, Oshi no Ko
4. Flandre Scarlet, Touhou Project

While My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU's Komachi took the crown in 2017, it looks like she's fallen down the ranks. Which little sisters have taken the top spots five years on?

3. Kagura, Gintama

This fiery little sis earned third place with 8% of the overall vote! Kagura may badmouth and clash with her brother Kamui every time they meet, but it's clear that they genuinely care for each other.

2. Naomi Tanizaki, Bungo Stray Dogs

The little sister of Junichi Tanizaki, Naomi took second place - beating Ryunosuke Akutagawa's sister Gin - with 9% of the vote. She may seem a little too close to her big bro, but we have to admire her sheer devotion and courage when she shielded him from a bullet.

1. Nezuko Kamado, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Aaaand Nezuko bursts into first place with 16%! The unwavering love between this little sis and her big brother Tanjiro is what saves them and countless others despite her being turned into a demon.
