Integra is Alucard’s master and she slays evil monsters and vampires using her own vampire force.
Edward (Cowboy Bebop)
Edward’s gender in the anime was shocking. Because, both his attitude and name suggest he’s a boy. Not to mention his voice was perfect as a male character.

Kino (Kino’s Journey)
Kino is the main character of the anime Kino’s Journey. As the name of the anime suggests she travels a lot in search of a country that matches her desires.
She is a very stoic individual who kind of seems apethatic at first, but as the show goes on we learn that she is kind and caring.
Kino loves being a traveller so much that she is afraid of settling down in a town. This is why she does not stay in the same place for more than three days.
Dororo had everyone fooled when it comes to her gender. We all thought Dororo was a boy as she talks and acts like a boy. Not to mention, her clothes are definitely not made for girls.
Dororo is a cute kid who has been orphaned at a very young age. She always hangs around with the MC of this show and has been kind of a lifeline for him.
She is really sharp witted for a young child and is cheerful and fun majority of the time.
Sui (Darwin’s Game)
Side characters are easily forgettable in anime. Especially so in a series that has dozens of characters who have little screentime.
Sui was one such character.
But there is a reason why we can’t forget her very easily. What is the reason you ask? Because she is one of the anime girls that looks like a boy completely in all manner. Also, she is kind of both boy and a girl at the same time in her soul.
She swaps personality with her twin brother Souta. Her gender reveal was too surprising to forget her.
If we go by personal gender and not biological, the situation is unclear. You never know who you’re talking to.
Yuu Kashima (Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun)
Kashima is one of the most beautiful anime girls that looks like boys. Her classmates think she’s a prince and treat her royally. But they might not be far off. She is actually tall, strong, noble-looking and boyish.
However, he’s secretly feminine around her senpai, Hori. She loves Hori but keeps it a secret.
Fleur “Eve” Boland (Spice & Wolf)
Spice & Wolf’s Eve is mysterious. All we know is that she was a noblewoman turned slave.
She is therefore always wary and hard to approach. After all she knows how hard like can be for people who blindly trust others.
This is also the reason why she dresses like a guy. She does not want to look weak in front of the others which might call for trouble.
She’s now a shady merchant who trades stuff illegaly.
Aura Bella Fiora (Overlord)
Fiora is the boyish-looking elf girl I’ve seen. She is absolutely obidient and loyal to her master Ainz Ooal Gown.

These two siblings switch roles of brother and sister where Fiora is more boy-like and protects her brother.
Seishiro Tsugumi (Nisekoi)
Tsugumi is probably the most popular character among all the other anime girls that look like boys. She’s from the rom-com ecchi-harem anime Nisekoi.
Her boyish attitude makes everyone think she’s a boy. However, during the “swimming pool incident,” the MC uncovers her true gender.
Naoto Shirogane (Persona 4 The Animation)
Naoto is my most favorite anime girl that looks like a boy. We think she’s a boy for most of the show.
Because of her profession and childhood, she acts and dresses like a boy. A man in the anime falls in love with Naoto before knowing her true identity as a girl, demonstrating her charm.
Benio-san (Ouran High School Host Club)
Benio san is one of the side characters from Ouran High School Host Club. She does not wear boyish clothes all that much so it is obvious that she is a female. However, she definitely has the charming looks of a man.
This is obvious as several girls flock around her and treat her like a prince.
Haruhi Fujioka (Ouran High School Host Club)
When we think of Anime girls that look like boys, Haruhi comes in mind for the most of us. She’s the main character of “Ouran Highschool Host Club”
She’s an honor student at a noble and wealthy institution. Haruhi’s family is poor, but she joined high school because of her intelligence.
She breaks a pricey vase that will take a lifetime to repay. In exchange for paying for the vase, she must host a club. She must use her boyish looks to charm her customers.
Hotaru Tachibana (Aoharu x Kikanjuu)
Tachibana is a really handsome looking anime girl that looks like a boy, and is the main protagonist of the anime.
Hotaru is full of energy and is a cheerful girl. She is also obssessed with justice which is a perfect trait for a student council president like her.
She is also proactive in helping out the other students in need. However, contradictary to the previous traits she is also stubborn and would go any lengths to do achieve what she wants, even if it means lying to her own friends.
Yuzuru Nishimiya (Silent Voice)
Yuzuru is another anime girl that looks like a boy that had us completely fooled with her boyish attitude and voice. Even the characters in the show treat her as a boy at first because of her dressing sense and looks.
Her personality is boy-like too. She does not try to act cute and is blunt and straightforward all the time.
Haruka Tenoh (Sailor Moon)
Haruka Tenoh is the cover identity of Sailor Uranus. She is originally a magical girl, but she acts as a normal civilian named Haruka in order to blend in with the people.
She does not like acting weak and girlish. Therefore she presents herself as masculine as she can. This is why she can be found wearing boy’s clothing most of the time. Not to mention, her looks are that of a really handsome man.
She is without a doubt the perfect example of an anime girl that looks like a boy not only with external appearance, but with her personality too.
