The best comedy Shounen one can find is Gintama. Written by Hideaki Sorachi, the series focuses on the white-haired samurai Gintoki Sakata, who fought in the great war ten years ago against the aliens.
Now he’s lost everything and goes around doing odd jobs for his survival. Over time he finds a family in the form of a Yato young lady, Kagura, and Dojo owner Shinpachi. The trio completes various odd jobs and protects Edo from foes.
Gintama has a brilliant ensemble cast with beautifully written characters, and no wonder it boasts the best female cast in shounen. Unlike many other shounen, where the female character is left to be a damsel in distress, Sorachi does not do so and creates multiple independent, strong women.
Each of them follows a unique personality and fashion sense which brings about their strong identity. Here are some “Top 10 Most Beautiful Female Characters in Gintama ranked.“
10) Kijima Matako –

Takasugi even states that Kihetai came into existence because of her, as is seen in the Silver Soul arc.
9) Yagyuu Kyuubei –
She is the head of the famous Yagyuu family of Edo. Yagyuu family has always had a male head, so Kyuubei was also raised like a boy who left her with huge regrets.
For this, she was compelled; Otae beat up her oppressors and became an important part of her life. Kyuubei lost her eye when she tried to protect Otae from debt collectors. As she grew up, she followed neither masculinity nor feminity but wanted to be a “strong girl with a kind heart” like Otae.
8) Kouka –
She is the mother of Kagura and Kamui and a member of the Yato clan. Umibozu fell in love with her at first sight when they met on her home planet Kouan.

6) Ikeda Asaemon –
She is adopted by the Asaemon family head but is outed as a traitor after she is framed for exterminating the head of the family. She is mostly emotionless but gets fierce if she is touched, as is seen by her attacks on Gintoki, which became a gag.

4) Shimura Tae –
She is the elder sister of Shinpachi and the successor of the Shimura Dojo. She works as a cabaret girl to make their ends meet. Otae is the star attraction of the hostess club due to her beauty and personality, with men often lining up waiting to be served by her.

3) Sarutobi Ayame (Sachan) –

Sachan is an expert ninja who trained alongside Zenzou and the Shogun. Being an expert at throwing Kunais, she can hit her opponents from a great distance.

Isaburo finds her at his home, where he finds the bodies of his wife and just born daughter with everything pointing to Mukuro slaying them. In fact, she was late in reaching the location to protect Isaburo’s family.
Isaburo realises this and takes her in, giving her the name Nobume, the name he would give to his daughter, meaning “Girl of Faith”. Although she is emotionless, she is an expert swordsman due to her upbringing as an assassin. The only time she shows emotions is when she’s fed doughnuts.
