Only two things can keep me going for more than six hours: playing TESV: Skyrim and watching cartoons.
But suppose I could do both at once?
I’m not talking about multitasking. Instead, I think we should add anime fan mods to Skyrim to make it more like Japan.
The trip is worth it because of the people who go with you.
You’ll have a very different adventure with Lydia than with Serana, and a very “sugoi” adventure with an anime fan.

15. Follower – Agatha
This mod introduces a new standalone female follower named Agatha to Skyrim. The player can recruit Agatha as a companion and she will follow them throughout their adventures.
The mod does not require any additional dependencies and is designed to be used on its own.
The mod author may have also included additional features such as custom dialogue, spells, or equipment for Agatha to make her more interesting and useful to the player.
14. Better Followers
This mod offers various fixes and changes to Skyrim’s inventory system, as well as introduces “Specialized Followers” with additional spells and perks.
The mod also includes an optional essential feature, which prevents followers from being killed, and increases the level cap to 100.
It offers optional appearance changes, such as a female stance for female companions, and new armor that is lore-friendly. The mod can be installed via NMM or manually and also includes class edits, dual wield, and other additional features.
13. Mindi Badweyn a Nord Follower
This mod adds a new standalone follower to Skyrim who is essential, meaning they cannot be killed, and marriageable, meaning the player can marry them.
12. Lamae Follower
This mod adds a new standalone follower named Lamae to Skyrim. The player can find Lamae at the Moorside Inn in Morthal.
Additionally, the mod offers an option to have Babette take on the form of Lamae.
11. Miraak – Dragonborn Follower
This mod allows the player to recruit Miraak, the main antagonist of the Dragonborn DLC in Skyrim, as a follower.
The mod adds new dialogue lines to make him a fully voiced follower, and he will use a variety of shouts in combat.
The mod also changes the final quest of the Dragonborn DLC to give the player the option of teaming up with Miraak against Hermaeus Mora.
10. Korosukenari Followers
If you’re looking for a lore-friendly way of adding several anime hotties to your game, Korosukenari Followers is a great choice.
While none of these adorable ladies comes from any specific anime, they all have the large eyes and cutesy facial features you’d expect of an anime-based character. It’s like a dream!
Each of these follows a different character archetype.
There are blade dancers, goth loli vampires, gifted archers, and various adventurer types with cool armors.
One thing that keeps this mod from reaching its full potential is that these waifus share the same voice – but you can quickly fix that with the Lazy Tools add-on.
9. Megumin – Konosuba Follower
Kazuma’s adventure in KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! is every Skyrim player’s dream: waking up in a fantasy world ruled by RPG tropes and full of attractive people.
Nobody has made a mod capable of physically sending you to Skyrim yet.
Still, there are other ways to share in Kazuma’s good luck – like downloading this Megumin follower by Jinxxed.
A master of Destruction magic, Megumin fights exclusively by casting explosions.
In fact, it’s the only spell she knows – which is why she got expelled from the College of Winterhold.
The creator did a terrific job modeling Megumin and making her fit in with the world around her.
8. Rosetta – Japanese Custom Voiced Follower
A great way to give Skyrim that special anime touch is changing the language to Japanese.
If that seems too extreme, consider a Japanese-speaking custom follower like Millepon’s Rosetta.
Rosetta isn’t from any specific anime, but her background and design are 100% anime-compatible.
She’s one of the last Snow Elves, if not the last.
After her parents were brutally murdered by Nords, who feared they may turn into Falmer, Rosetta seeks someone who’ll help her find more of her kind.
She’s an excellent healer and ice mage, and her anime voice is adorable.
7. OK_Custom Voice Followers
If you liked Rosetta, you have to check out OK_Custom Voice Followers by Okame28.
By installing this mod, you’re getting not one but eleven adorable Japanese-voiced followers with anime-style designs.
There are dark mages, myrmidons, sword dancers, and even a gal with a handgun!
I love this pack because the followers can talk to each other and not just the Dragonborn. They’ll even have conversations with Rosetta if you’ve got both installed!
6. Kakarotty – Saiyanic Follower
Fans of Dragon Ball will love Kakarotty – a powerful female follower based on Goku.
Kakarotty is an adorable anime-style girl hiding the strength of a Saiyan.
She’s a specialist in unarmed combat and can cast powerful Ki-based spells, along with turning Super Saiyan.
Creator MightyChopsticks also included a second follower by the name of Kakarotty Black. As you might expect, her powers mimic Goku Black’s powers in DBS, and she can unleash Super Saiyan Rose.
5. Minamoto no Raikou – Fate/Grand Order Follower
Raikou is one of the hottest & most badass characters in the Fate series, and she couldn’t be missing from our ranking.
This excellent mod by Emerilada is heavily inspired by Minamoto no Raikou, though it’s not meant to be a 1:1 reproduction of the character. It’s hard to reproduce Raikou’s proportions and outfits without things getting NSFW…
Despite not having the exact same outfit, she gives off the same “dangerous beauty” vibes as Raikou and perfectly fits in with the rest of the anime girls.
4. Bulma Briefs – Dragon Ball Follower
Bulma is one of the most well-known female anime characters ever created, thanks to her central role in the world-famous late 80s anime Dragon Ball.
This mod by Jinxxed brings us two versions of the character: one wearing her classic pink dress and a “combat” version featuring a camo bikini and a combat knife strapped to Bulma’s leg.
As expected of the heiress of Capsule Corp, Bulma modified her Dwemer Crossbow to be to shoot faster. She’s already used to chasing Dragon Balls, so hunting down real dragons should prove easy.
You can also get a Chi-Chi follower made by the same mod developer.
3. Pokerace – An Anime Race
As you’ll have noticed by now, one of the biggest challenges to getting anime girls right in Skyrim is how different anime face proportions tend to be.
Maflock’s Pokerace was created to fix just that.
It introduces a new “anime” race to Skyrim, letting you create authentically anime-looking characters as you’d see in a game like Genshin Impact.
Regrettably, there’s no mod to automatically apply this to NPCs.
But you can use it to create characters and then turn them into followers.
2. Artoria Pendragon – Fate/Stay Night Follower
Nowadays, there are countless attractive heroic spirits to choose from in the Fate franchise. But I’ve been a big fan of the series since the beginning, so I have a soft spot for the original Saber.
Who’d have guessed “King Arthur” was actually a cute girl?
This custom follower by Haladoon is a very accurate portrayal of Artoria that looks fantastic in Skyrim.
She even has the iconic loose hair strand “ahoge”! You can tell this modder cares about the details.
Tip: Her armor and swords are also available as Skyrim mods from Haladoon.
1. Overlord Mod – Become An Evil Lich
Leading the ranking, we have one of the most fleshed-out and content-rich anime mods ever released.
Overlord – Become An Evil Lich by MRX16 adapts the successful light novel series and anime into Skyrim. The mod introduces plenty of new stuff from Overlord:
- And tons of loot
It also includes over a dozen followers based on characters from the show, including fan favorites like Shalltear, Demiurge, Sebas Tian, and Albedo.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more complete anime experience in Skyrim.
