Ok, so basically just name every female lead that comes to your mind. It can from every genre, she can be the main character or just the female lead, she can be protagonist or the antagonist, the manga can be told from her POV or not. The any restriction is that she has to be intelligent/smart/calculating/manipulative/anything along those lines. Other than being intellingent, she can be kind, cold, selfish, narcissistic, whatever, I don't care. She just has to be smart. The smarter, the better.
Oh, and please mention both the character and the manga she's from. Thank you.

Girls of the Wild's - the webtoon mainly focused on fighting, but I'm pretty sure the female lead is smart. At least I'm sure Queen is.
7 Seeds - Hana
Bakemonogatari (Novel) series - Hitagi Senjogahara, Tsubasa Hanekawa
Knight Run - the main character
Sword Art Online (Novel) - Asuna
Annarasumanara - main lead, forgot her name
Dengeki Daisy - Teru

Suppli Fuji - She is like the modern day ass kicking chick. She isn't perfect but she's smart, ambitious, and courageous.

Really lalalarry? No smart female leads? What have you been reading, there's plenty! Also try the "smart female leads" tag.

Basara Strategic, high emotional intelligence. Born leader.

Ghost Sweeper Mikami Manipulative, "business"woman, always has the upperhand.

Tenma no Ketsuzoku Can think and act for herself, even in an age where women should be submissive/obedient.

Kisshou Tennyo Just try this one. Perhaps the most unique and strangely charismatic female lead I've read about. Very intelligent, knows how to play with minds. Dark, creepy ambiance.

Gokusen Street smarts cool

Eternal Sabbath Very smart. Has gone through high levels of schooling. Problem solving skills.

Cheese in the Trap School smart.

Special A School smart.

Akujo Seisho Also dark, creepy ambiance. Manipulative.

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro Later volumes. Main female lead really grows up. Smart about understanding people below the surface.

And many more! All these series I HIGHLY recommend, btw! Well maybe all except Special A. I believe I read that when I was like, 12.

Most of these are only 'intelligent' though. Generally not a push-over but don't seem to be the 'calculating' type you're looking for.

Ouran High School Host Club: Haruhi; only smart though, not the cold, calculating type.
Warau Kanoko sama, Koi Dano Ai Dano: Kanoko; smart, calculating mischievous type.
xxxHolic: Yuuko; um, she's smart but I dunno if that's the kind you want. Witch, more mysterious.
Mirai Nikki: Yuno; she's smart I suppose, a pervert, maniac, murder and psycho.
Kimi wa Pet: Sumire; working female woman.
Soul Eater: Gorgon Sisters, Maka (?); the witches are generally quite cool : )
Skip Beat: Kyoko; maybe.
Saiunkoku Monogatari: Shuurei; became a government official among a society full of men.
Jormungand: Koko; probably the only one that actually fit your taste accurately. Firearms seller, smart, calculating, mischievous and also a bit comedic.

Lalalarry- yeah, like I said, I read Special A a long time ago and I listed it as "school smart."

Try the other series I suggested! You'll be surprised! I am really picky with my series too, having gone through thousands. These series are good though.
