Our fascination with divinity is quite obvious, given the amount of entertainment media content based on gods and goddesses. Anime has been having divinity in their shows for a long time now. There are famous anime shows like ‘Noragami’ that make Gods and their powers central to their plot. So, we did some research and managed to compile a list featuring popular anime goddesses. Here’s the list of top anime goddesses. You can watch several of these anime on Crunchyroll, Netflix or Hulu.
16. Hestia – Dungeon ni Deai Wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka (2015 – Present)
Hestia is the female protagonist and a female deity from the action, adventure anime series ‘Dungeon ni Deaiwo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka’. Like the other goddesses from this series, Hestia is very pretty and has a sexy, petite figure. She also has a large bust. She was very lonely, which is why she decided to team up with the protagonist Bell Cranel to support him in his adventure in the dangerous catacombs known as the dungeon. Hestia is quite energetic and wants to be with Bell as a lover and sees the other goddesses as her rival in love.
15. Holo – Ookami to Koushinryou (2009)
Holo is the pretty goddess from the adventure-fantasy anime series ‘Ookami to Koushinryou’. She is really cute and you cannot help but love her. She is a wolf deity and used to bless the townsfolk’s harvest. But as time passes, by people stopped needing her and now she is just a legend. Then a trader by the name of Kraft Lawrence recognizes her skills with people and decides to use her in growing his own business. But slowly they fall in love. Holo, being a wolf deity, has the appearance of a wolf. She has long wolf-like ears and sports a brown tail which is white at the ends. She also has wolf-like canine teeth.
14. Aqua – Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! (2016 – 2017)
‘Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!’ is a fun anime and if you love the isekai genre, then you will find this anime really entertaining. Aqua is the female protagonist of the anime. She is a female deity who has the power of water. She is the one who gives the dead people the choice to go to heaven or go to a game-like fantasy world. But that is no more her job since Kazuma Satou decided to take her as his thing of aid (which he later finds out was a useless decision). Aqua has the power to purify water supplies and revive recently deceased people. She is also invulnerable against demons. Personality wise, Aqua wants other people to respect her status and can get angry pretty quickly.
13. Athena – Saint Seiya (1986 – 1989)
Athena is a goddess from the adventure-sci-fi anime series ‘Saint Seiya’. She is the goddess of wisdom and war and in ancient times, a group of men used to protect her. These men were called Saints and they had the power of cosmos within them. The anime revolves around a current generation saint named Seiya who will face many dangerous challenges and obstacles in his life. Athena became the protector of Earth and humanity after inheriting it from her father. She was the one to create the special divine clothes that the Saints wear and are able to manipulate the power of cosmos. Even after being the goddess of war, she does not like weapons and only in dire situations instructs her saints to do so.
12. Mii ‘Goddess of Fertility’ – Jungle de Ikou! (1997)
Alright, I always try to look out for my readers who love ecchi anime. If you enjoy watching hot female anime characters designed in the 80s and 90s then I present to you Mii ‘Goddess of Fertility’. She is sexy, has a voluptuous figure and a large bust. And believe me when I say large, I mean LARGE! Her bust can expand even further. Yup, looking out for my expansion fetish loving readers too. The anime isn’t all that great. What can you expect from an ecchi OVA? Natsumi is one of the characters in this anime who has the ability to change into Mii who is the goddess of flowers, fertility and reproduction. Her large bust represents the life-giving energy of earth and the last time I checked, the volume of life on earth is huge. Thus, we will be needing lots of energy.
11. Neptune – Choujigen Game Neptune The Animation (2013)
‘Choujigen Game Neptune The Animation’ as an anime is okay but the premise had lots of potentials to be entertaining and funny. There are four realms in Gamindustri who fight over the Share energy. But the war was fruitless. So, the CPU goddesses of the realms sign a friendship treaty banning the use of military forces to claim the energy. Neptune is one of these goddesses. She is goofy and lazy and does not do her job, which leaves her realm’s energy in danger. Neptune looks like a normal child in her normal mode but in her Hard Drive Divinity or HDD mode, she becomes a bit more mature. Also, there’s a lot of talk about her becoming bustier in this form and yup there’s a pretty noticeable increase.
10. Belldandy – Aa! Megami-sama! (2006)
‘Aa! Megami-sama!’ translates to ‘Ah! My Goddess!’ which sound pretty messed up and weird. Anyway, the anime could have been more fun given the premise but I guess it is entertaining enough to watch when you have nothing else to do. Belldandy is one of the goddesses in the Goddess hotline which grants human wishes. She is summoned by mistake by a human named Keiichi Morisato who then jokes that she should stay with him forever and, lo and behold, she does. Suddenly, this show has made me more religious of course for whatever religion these goddesses belong to. Belldandy is a beautiful goddess and slowly her relationship with Keiichi develops into something romantic.
9. Demeter – Dungeon ni Deai Wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka (2015 – Present)
‘Dungeon ni Deaiwo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka’ has got some really pretty goddesses. Hestia was one but if you are into more mature female characters, then I present to you, Demeter who looks the most mature. She has a voluptuous figure and sports a large bust. She has wavy, honey-colored hair and orange eyes. Demeter is good-natured and acts quite maturely around other people. Sometimes she does like to tease like for instance when she gives Bell a hug (I really wished that it was me instead of Bell). She is is quite intelligent too and is able to understand the hidden motives of others.
8. Bishamonten – Noragami (2015)
‘Noragami’ is a show about gods and goddesses. I believe I did a list about some of the best characters in that anime. The anime is really fun and entertaining, so do check it out. The hottest goddess in the entire anime series is Bishamonten. Her badass fighting skills and her sexy and mature look complemented with her tasty outfit gives the viewers something to look at for very different reasons. She really cares for her Shinki and since she is unable to abandon spirits attacked by Ayakashi, she has many Shinki. Bishamonten hates Yato who is the protagonist of the anime. She has blonde hair and purple eyes.
7. Urd – Aa! Megami-sama! (2006)
Up next is another goddess from the supernatural, magic, romance anime series ‘Aa! Megami-sama!’. Urd is the half-sister of Belldandy. She is older than Belldandy and has darker skin than the latter’s. She is quite beautiful and has the physical appearance of a mature woman. Urd is the second goddess who appears in front of Keiichi. She is the systems and administration manager of the Yggdrasil. Urd really loves and cares for her sisters and is the strongest of them all. She could have become a first-class goddess but since she only wanted the powers to protect her sisters, she couldn’t. Urd keeps trying to develop the relationship between Belldandy and Keiichi.
6. Momiji Binboda – Binbougami ga! (2012)
Momiji Binboda is the goddess of misfortune in the anime series ‘Binbougami ga!’. The protagonist of the anime is Ichiko Sakura, a girl blessed with a high amount of fortune energy and thus, living her life is quite easy. On the other hand, Momiji Binboda is the goddess of poverty, misfortune and does not have anything. Even her house is just a box under a bridge. To restore the balance of energy to the world, Momiji needs to fight Ichiko and steal her fortune energy. The anime is about her clashing with Ichiko on a daily basis. Though it seems as if Momiji is the antagonist, we slowly begin to understand it is not so.
5. Kofuku Ebisu – Noragami (2015)
Kofuku Ebisu is the cutest goddess from the anime series ‘Noragami’. She has short, curly, neck-length, pink hair. She has the looks of a young girl. Kofuku is in a relationship with Daikoku who is also her Shinki. She is generally in a white collared-shirt and checked skirt with a matching tie. This getup makes her look like a school girl. Kofuku has a very cheerful personality and is a good friend of Yato’s. She is the goddess of poverty and thus has been through hate and scorn. Though Kofuku belongs to the class of gods who are not worshipped, she is quite powerful. Her ability to spread bad omen is so powerful that it can even affect the gods around her.

Kuugen Tenko is one of the main characters from the adventure/fantasy anime series ‘Wagaya no Oinari-same’. She is a Youkai fox who has been around for a thousand years. She is quite mischievous and causes trouble for the Takagami boys who belong to the Mizuchi bloodline. Kuugen can transform into a man and woman at will and thus can be quite troublesome.
