best ghost anime girls

Who thought ghosts would be cute and loveable, but anime made that possible. I’ll share a list of the 17 Most Beautiful Ghost Anime Girls that will scare you with their cuteness in this post.

I have worked hard on this post and tried to present to you all the essential characteristics of ghost anime girls and what makes them unique. I hope you find this list to your liking. So without further ado, let’s get started.

17. Perona

Series: One Piece

Cause of Death: Not known


This ghost anime girl is one of the antagonists in the mega-series, One Piece. During her childhood, she met the pirate Gecko Moria, who took her and raised her.

Perona hates when people disobey and tells her what to do and what not to. She works for people who she finds are cute. Antagonists can also be immature, and Perona proves this statement to be true.

Her eyes are big and round. Whereas her body is small. Her hair is long and pink, which are tied up into pigtails.

She has culinary skills and knows a thing or two about medicines. Plenty of zombies work under her command as she is a former member of the Mysterious Four.

16. Nora

Series: Noragami

Cause of Death: Stillbirth 

Serialbinger2 1

Nora is the antagonist in the series Noragami. As a Shinigami ( powerful ghost spirits), she has served many gods as their weapon. One of her Gods, Yato, gives her the name “Hiiro”.

She is a beautiful girl with short hair and burgundy eyes. She dresses in a white kimono with a red underlayer and a striped red and black sash.

Initially watching the series, Nora would come across as a kind ghost. Later on, it is revealed that she is manipulative and greedy.

As a weapon of God, she has various abilities like water-transforming, shape-shifting, restraint, controlling, etc. Nora is definitely an oddball in this list of ghost anime girls, but that’s what makes her special.

15. Youmu Konpaku

Cause of Death: Half Alive- Half Dead

Youmu is a badass ghost anime girl who carries a katana with a cherry blossom insignia and flower. The katana that Youmu carries has the power to kill 10 phantoms at one go.

14. Sayo Aisaka

Series:Mahou Sensei Negima! Anime Final

Cause of Death: Succumbed to pneumonia

Sayo Aisaka

This ghost girl anime character passed away protecting flowers from heavy rain. She caught pneumonia and died. Although in the series Mahou Sensei Negima! Anime Final, Sayo has been portrayed as a weak spirit. For me, she is the bravest ghost anime girl on the whole list.

Her white hair and red eyes are similar to albino. She wears a “sailor-fuku” style uniform to school. An interesting fact about her appearance is that she doesn’t have feet.

She is counted as a meek and hapless ghost amongst others. Due to low-self esteem, she has not developed skills that are important for the spirit.
