Gunslingers in anime are not uncommon. But awesome gunslingers who can absolutely make you cheer them and their sharpshooting skills on? That’s a little less common. Today we’re going to focus on five awesome gunslingers, who’ll have you wanting to cheer them on all the way to the end of their adventure and far beyond!
Nadie (El Cazador de la Bruja)
Not everyone is as familiar with this series as they should be which is a crime in itself! El Cazador de la Bruja stars Nadie who is a bounty hunter after a girl with amnesia. The pair end up together and start off on a wild ride filled with gunfights and action! Nadie’s weapon of choice is a Colt M1911 pistol which she uses with precision skill. You don’t want to get on the bad side of this woman!
Kyoka Katagiri (Gunslinger Stratos)
With so many anime veterans on this list, we absolutely had to include at least one newbie in order to properly welcome them into the Viewster family! Not much is known about the weapons that Kyoka Katagiri wields but using her training from the world that she came from originally she learned how to use her new gun very quickly and very well. Never afraid to go into a fight so that she can protect those she cares about, Kyoka is all about providing support both on the battlefield and off.

Charlotte E. Yeager (Strike Witches)
While the members of the 501st Joint Fighter Wing might be pilots first, they still carry some pretty heavy duty guns which in my mind makes them gunslingers all the same. Honestly we could’ve chosen any member of this fighting force for this list but in the end it was decided to go with Charlotte Yaeger who happens to be a personal favorite of mine. Charlotte’s weapon of choice is a Browning automatic rifle M1918 and she uses it with skill no matter how fast she’s going (she is the queen of speed after all).

Henrietta (Gunslinger Girl)
If you were to look at Henrietta walking down the street, you’d never know that she was a cyborg killing machine that could absolutely tear you apart and fill you with holes. Choosing to carry a SIG-Sauer P-239 in a back holster and a Fabrique Nationale P90 PDW in a violin case, Henrietta is an assassin capable of horrible things along with her handler. This girl proves that big trouble can come in very small packages.

Seras Victoria (Hellsing)
Wielding a large Anti-Midian Cannon Harkonnen, Seras Victoria isn’t a gunslinger in the most traditional sense. With that particular weapon she mostly provides long range support but don’t be mistaken… put some pistols or submachine guns in her hands and she can take you out at close range without a second thought or a single moment of hesitation. She might not be spinning a revolver around her finger but she’ll still put a bullet hole in you from any distance that she desires!
