Sakamoto Days is an action manga series that debuted in the Weekly Shonen Jump in 2020, written and illustrated by Yuto Suzuki. The Story follows Taro Sakamoto, an ex-assassin regarded as a legend in his prime. Sakamoto leaves behind the world of assassination after meeting his beloved wife-to-be.
Sakamoto now runs a convenience store with his wife and daughter; however, after having a bounty placed on his head, he is once again dragged back into the world of assassination.
The manga has one of the best action-illustrated scenes. The juxtaposition between the various elements of humor, cold action, and its myriad of badass characters makes it an extremely good read. We’ve discussed here the ten strongest female characters in Sakamoto Days.
For this ranking, we will be considering only characters that have been introduced and we will consider their abilities, assassination weapons, martial art, and fights. Let’s get straight into it.
WARNING: Heavy spoilers ahead so proceed on your own risk.

TOP 10 STRONGEST FEMALE CHARACTERS IN SAKAMOTO DAYS
14) Hana Sakamoto
Technically, Hana is just a little kid. But there is no doubt that she is the daughter of one of the strongest assassins. With such impressive parents, she was bound to turn out strong (in more aspects than one).
Of course, as part of the household rule, she isn’t being raised as an assassin or anything. However, she is just as fearless and as much of a go-getter as her mother. She had no qualms about taking Kashima to “fix him” despite his protests.
Hana is an emotionally strong child. Even Kashima was touched by how much she is loved by everyone in the neighborhood.
Nakase is a pretty minor character in the series but amongst the first to be ever introduced. She is an Ikoraizaka police officer with a strong sense of justice.
Nakase has some very strong ideals, evidenced by how she was passionate about catching the masked man to prevent violence in the city. She is ready to put her life on the line to save others and was able to stand her ground when she was kidnapped by a drug gang.
12) Aoi Sakamoto
Compared to all the assassins and killers, Aoi may not have the physical strength, but being able to capture one of the greatest assassins in history doesn’t really scream normal.
Wife of Taro Sakamoto and mother of Hana Sakamoto, Aoi is the very reason Taro abandoned his life of killing. She worked her charm so hard that Taro ran away from the JCC and became a humble store owner for her. She is basically the only person that can reign him in. Usually loving and kind, she sometimes let her extremist nature slip through.
Aoi is reckless due to her fearless nature, but she lives her life with confidence.
Atou is another minor character who was introduced during the JCC Transfer Exams Arc. She is also an assassin from the JAA and was part of the test administration with Usami.
As part of the association and also an administrator, there is no doubt about her strength. She also seemed to be the brains of the administrator group.
Obiguro is Boiled’s partner, and they are both from the assassin agency, Dondenkai. She served as one of the main antagonists in the Amusement Park Arc. Obiguro loves strong people.
Obiguro had a hard time fighting against Lu Shaotang, who did not even perfect her drunken Tai Chi yet, so we will be placing her at number ten. Both Obiguro and her partner Boiled are references to the popular 1994 film Leon: The Professional.
9) Lu Shaotang
Daughter of the Triad Family, Lu Shaotang uses Tai Chi to fight. Lu Shaotang’s Tai Chi, along with her strength, pain resistance, and confidence, is heightened upon heavy drinking.
She works alongside Shin as a store clerk in Sakamoto’s Store. Her family genetics give her the weird ability to drink alcohol levels that would normally poison an ordinary person.
A death row inmate who escaped using Slur’s help to wreak havoc in Japan along with Dump’s fellow serial killers. She has 8 mechanical spikes embedded in her body-2 in each hand and 6 across her torso. She can extend them to a limited distance with great force.
Dump was able to land a hit on Osaragi, although it did not seem to damage her. We will be placing Dump on number 8 as she lasted for a few minutes with a fight against Osaragi.
Geisha’s name is never revealed besides the fact that she is working with a former order member, Satoru Yotsumura, against the JAA. She uses an umbrella as her primary weapon. It can block attacks and shoot bullets from its end. The umbrella acts as a sword, too.
So far, Geisha’s the only one who has lasted the longest in a fight against Osaragi, although she was quickly overpowered.
6) Nao Toramaru
In the JCC Transfer Exam Arc, Nao Toramaru was one of the specially recommended students. After having met Taro Sakamoto as a child, she became infatuated with him, she even has a Sakamoto keychain on her bag.
Nao uses a heavy weapon, which seems like an amalgamation of a gun and an axe.
5) Akira Akao
The niece of Rion Akao and a first-year student at JCC, Akira has a natural talent for assassination and like her aunt, she can see has a pathway. This pathway reveals the set of steps and actions to kill someone immediately.
She can sew extremely fast as seen in the airplane crash, where she is able to sew a parachute mid-air. Akira’s full potential is not unlocked yet. Hence, we will place her at number 5.
4) Etsuko Satoda
Satoda is a retired assassin and is now a teacher working for the JAA. Natsuki described her as having come back from every mission unscathed and, was even asked to join the Order, but she declined and decided to teach instead. She has taught Sakamoto, Rion, and Nagumo in the past.
A master of Aikido has shown feats of restraining Sakamoto, Nagumo, and the combined efforts of Shin, Akira, and Natsuki. Satoda can even fight with Kanaguri, an active member of the Order, on equal footing.
Recently introduced in chapter 121 of the manga. Kumanomi seems like a force to be reckoned with, raised in the same orphanage as Gaku and Slur or Kei Uzuki at Al-Kamar.
Her primary choice of weapon is an electromagnetic glove that can weaponize her surroundings. She can pull and launch any kind of metallic object and is able to manipulate iron sand.
Kumanomi is a fearful foe. She managed to kill Hyo, a powerful member of the Order, despite fighting Heisuke at the same time. However, the battle didn’t leave her totally unscathed, as she had to cut off one of her arms to get away from Hyo.
The newest member of Order. Osaragi has disposed of every enemy in a quick and overpowering manner. Her raw strength stands out in her fights. The Geisha even described her as a wild beast.
When it comes to her weapon, Osaragi uses a buzzsaw to slice and decapitate her opponents. She has won the popularity poll conducted and is indeed a favorite to anyone who picks up the manga.
Osaragi is hinted to be raised on a farm by Shishiba. We have not seen her full capabilities that’s why we are placing her at number 2.
1) Rion Akao
An old friend of Sakamoto and Nagumo, Rion is the aunt of Akira. She was one of the founding members of The Order, one of the best assassins alongside Sakamoto and Nagumo. Rion was even praised by Kindaka, who was considered the fastest assassin of his time.
She can utilize a weapon to its maximum potential, and she even stated that she can beat Sakamoto if she is put in a room with him with nothing but knives. Rion can also see pathways with her eyes, like her niece.
