Nami (One Piece)

 

Nami the 'Cat Burglar' is a navigator of Straw Hat Pirates as well as one of the senior officials of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet.

 

She is the third member of the crew and was the second to join them, during Orange Town Arc.

 

She is Nojiko’s adoptive sister after both were abandoned and taken in by Bell-mere. She was a former member of Arlong Pirates and had initially joined Straw Hats with the agenda of robbing them to be able to buy her village back from Arlong.

 

But she chose to join the Straw Hats when they rebelled against her and ended up defeating the Arlong.

 

Nami dreams of making a map of the world.

 

 

2. Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)

 

Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)

 

Ichigo Kurosaki is a substitute Shinigami and the son of Masaki and Isshin Kurosaki, and the older brother to Yuzu and Karin.

 

His wife is Orihime Inoue (who’s featured in our list as well). When it comes to intense fights, Ichigo tends to have a complex sense of honor, which is why he consistently tries to seek revenge for all the cruel actions of his opponent.

 

While he wishes to win all his fights, he always tries to legitimately do them, ensuring that there is no foul play involved, not from his end at the least.

 

 

1. Nobara Kugisaki (Jujutsu Kaisen)

 

Nobara Kugisaki (Jujutsu Kaisen)

 

Nobara Kugisaki is one of the protagonists of the Jujutsu Kaisen series. She studies in her first year and is a grade 3 jujutsu sorcerer from Tokyo Jujutsu High, who studies under Satoru Gojo along with Megumi and Yuji.

 

She is a confident and brash girl but with an unshakable spirit. She stays true to herself, irrespective of the circumstances around her.

 

Nobara takes great pride in herself and her confidence, ensuring no one can influence her, come what may.

 

Although she seems obnoxious and arrogant to those around her, only the ones closest to her know her true caring and soft nature.
