The 20 Most Adorable Little Sisters of Anime Ranked by Japanese Fans

#2 is a staff favorite!

The adorable little sisters are one of the most popular and beloved character types in anime series. They can be a bit nerve-wracking and whiny sometimes or act like a typical tsundere, but that is also what makes their characters so appealing and adorable to their fans. To be honest, we can’t imagine a fun rom-com or school life series without their appearance at one point in the plot.

That is why Japan has even a day dedicated to these siblings, and as Younger Sister’s Day was celebrated on the 6th of September in 2017, Anime Anime! conducted a poll, to decide who are the cutest and most popular younger sisters in anime.

The fans of Anime Anime! could vote for their favorites from a list of 30 sisters also suggested by the community via Twitter. From the 789 votes, not surprisingly more than 75% of the votes were by the male fans. Also, the teenagers dominated the age group split by more than 50% and a quarter of the votes came from the fans in their 20s.

And now, let’s see the results of which characters Japanese fans consider the most adorable little sisters!

20. Rino Tanaka (Tanaka-kun is Always Listless)

19. Miyu Edelfelt (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya)

18. Haru Onodera (Nisekoi)

17. Nunnally Lamperouge (Code Geass)

16. Lotta Otus (ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.)
