Yume is my favorite girl from the list, specifically for the reason that she’s from my favorite anime; she’s a hunter and one of the main characters of the series.

Yume came across as someone timid. First, she was hesitant and afraid much like others in the anime, but she soon got over her fears and shifted her personality. Yume is the energetic one in the group; she joined the hunter’s guild and became a hunter.
