Know anyone in our top anime characters?
Today we’ll look at the top anime characters that every Otaku out there should know. There are tons of anime characters and its hard to choose the top as every character is unique in their own ways. But even if they are too many, this are the ones worth your respect and love:
- MONKEY D. LUFFY
Yes, I’m really a fan of One Piece (I think that goes on everyone). My favorite character in there is the captain and the main protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy or also known as Straw Hat Luffy or commonly Straw Hat. Luffy is a bad ass anime character who dreams of finding the One Piece and becoming the Pirate King with his catchphrase “Kaizoku ou ni ore wa naru!”. He mostly acts in a comical way but when it comes to his friends, he is protective and will kick the asses of their enemies. Luffy possesses Haki and have powerful battling techniques like Gear Fourth and so on. He also ate the devil fruit Gomu Gomu no Mi which makes him a rubber man who can stretch his body the way he wants to. Here is a nice quote from Luffy:
“I decided long ago that I’m going to be King of the Pirates… and if I die trying, then at least I tried.”
Saitama is the main protagonist of the anime One Punch Man and he is a really op character. He doesn’t have any special skills other than his super human physical power who kills off his enemies with just one punch (as the title of anime suggests). Saitama works as a hero and is currently registered as a B-class ranked 7 professional hero in the Hero Association (manga). He is given the name Caped Baldy as he is bald…and wears a cape. He is also one of those darling anime characters you’ll love not only because he is powerful but also because of his indifference. Quote from him:
“If the Heroes run and hide, who will stay and fight?”
- SEISHū HANDA
Seishuu Handa is a calligrapher from the city who moved into a remote place to get off his mental block and look at new horizons for his career. There he met different kinds of villagers who helped him appreciate life more and see the beauty in things. Sensei (as the villagers affectionately call him) is a 23 year old adult who is childish and has short temper and is also easily scared.
“Right now I’m in total darkness, but I’ll definitely find the light”
- SHIGEO KAGEYAMA
Shigeo Kageyama aka Mob is the protagonist in the anime Mob Psycho 100 and is also one of those op top anime characters. Mob has plain appearance and doesn’t look special but he is a very powerful Esper. As he grows older, Mob realizes that his psychic powers are getting dangerous by the minute. To avoid his power getting out of control, he constantly lives a life under an emotional shackle. Mob wants to live a normal life just like the others, but a barrage of trouble keeps coming after him. With the suppressed emotions growing inside Mob little by little, his power threatens to break through its limits. He is amazing though when his emotions break out and he loves his younger brother so much he’ll use his powers voluntarily when anybody tries to hurt his sibling.
“Psychic powers aren’t needed to survive in the first place.“
Meliodas is the main protagonist in the anime Nanatzu no Taizai or Seven Deadly Sins and also the captain of the seven sins and the Dragon’s Sin of Wrath. He looks like a child with a blond hair who carries a sword at his back and owns a restaurant known as Boar’s Hat. Meliodas is said to be the strongest demon and is the candidate for the next demon king because of his strength and ruthlessness. But he left the demon clan to be with Elizabeth. He is also one of those powerful top anime characters known as he has a dark power that activates whenever he is enraged. Meliodas is a bit perverted towards Elizabeth but is also very caring towards his friends.
“I’ve resolved to find the Seven Deadly Sins with you and stop the Holy Knights. Even if you were to die, I would fulfill the promise made with you.“
- TAKASHI NATSUME
Takashi Natsume is from the anime Natsume Yuujinchou or Natsume’s Book of Friends. He is one of those characters that you’ll want to protect because he looks so soft, girlish, and weak as he is sickly since birth. Natsume had a rough childhood because he can see spirits or youkai and every human started avoiding him saying he is creepy. Even though he looks weak, Natsume owns a book called Book of Friends and in it resides the names of strong and weak youkais who will obey him. His life began to become different when he met Nyanko-sensei and started their life in giving back the names of the youkai.
“I called his name again and again. And I learned that each time, nothing called back. I learned that no matter how much you want something, how many times you scream to it, sometimes it’s out of reach. I decided to stop calling out for someone who would never call back.”
