Top 10 Most Loved Anime Characters of All Time

Anime is one of the world’s leading art forms. Though it may appear cartoony with over the top visuals and scenes, it has undoubtedly produced some epic storylines with powerful characters.

10.Sakata Gintoki - Gintama

Gintama is undoubtedly one of the best comedy anime ever made. It is popular for its exceptional humour, beloved characters and numerous pop culture references. Leading the series from the front is Sakata Gintoki. The loveable character takes us on a ride in his adventures. From assisting in the sushi shop, solving local detective cases and even fighting off aliens Gin never fails to entertain us. Some of his exceptional character traits are the way he pulls off straight-faced jokes, delivering endearing and stoic lines while being humble at the same time.

9.Jiraiya Sensei - Naruto 

The Legendary Sanin is easily the best ‘Sensei’ character created in anime history. When his character is first revealed, he doesn’t seem all that important. But as we progress we realize that he is one of the most powerful ninjas in the world. Yet, his humbleness is dumbfounding. His bond with the series lead protagonist and their various journeys slowly reveals who is and what he has gone through in his life. He is impossible not to like and honour. Jiraiya Sensei is someone who will always be in the hearts of Naruto fans for his comic nature and the ultimate sacrifice he makes for the world.

8.Rorona Zoro - One Piece

Even though he is just one of the secondary characters in the series he is almost as loved as Luffy. He starts as your average loudmouth who just talks big. But as the show progresses we grow along with him and when he finally masters the esteemed three-sword style, we are left filled with pride. The character stands to show that with diligent training and focus, nothing is unattainable in life. 

7.Itachi Uchiha - Naruto

Itachi Uchiha is first revealed as a cold-blooded monster who is devoid of humanity. But even as a villain we are left to admire his astute thinking and incredible battle prowess. But the icing on the cake is when we get to know the reasons behind his actions and that he is nowhere close to what we pegged him to be. He is the true ninja in all aspect. A silent guardian. A watchful protector. 

6.Rintarou Okabe - Strings

Rintarou Okabe is the anime world’s much loved mad scientists. He encapsulates the audience’s attention with his eccentric and unpredictable nature. But as the series progresses we see him mature and develop more complex character traits. The show as a whole has a variety of high concept and moral dilemmas that is bound to give viewers a wholesome experience. Overall Rintarou is a character that is unique in the world of Anime.

5.Light Yagami - Death Note

If you have a friend who is new to the world of anime and is quite ignorant about it, then suggest that they watch Death Note. With less than 50 episodes it takes us on a rollercoaster ride with innumerable twists and turns. Carrying this exceptional story are two exceptional characters ever sketched. One of them is Light Yagami. A high school prodigy who takes up the task of cleaning up all the evil in the world as ‘Kira’. What sets out a noble mission slowly becomes twisted and turned displaying his ugly side. 

4. Naruto Uzumaki - Naruto

Naruto is dubbed as one of the best anime/manga series of all time. It joins the top along with other popular titles like Bleach and One Piece. Orphaned at an early age and despised by a whole village he starts at rock bottom and slowly becomes the Hero who saves the very village that hated him. He is a perfect example to prove that true grit never fails as long as you have the hard work to back it up. It is one of the world’s greatest underdog stories and Naruto Uzumaki is someone the world needs to look up to. 

3.Levi Ackerman - Attack On Titan

Lev is declared as humanity’s strongest soldier and he is also the  Captain of the Scouting Legion division and the Special Operations Squad. Though he seems cold-blooded due to his voice and a straight face. But his soft nature is revealed through his tactful nature and decision making where he always puts the safety of his team first. We also fall in love with his valour and battle skills. Anyone or anything that underestimates him is making a grave mistake, literally. 

2. Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece

Luffy is probably one of the most beloved characters of all time. Coming from humble beginnings, he slowly takes over our hearts. A fun-loving simple-minded kid who grows up into a strong and powerful man right in front of our eyes. It is one of the longest-running series and he has made us laugh, cry, and has in many instances, left us with goosebumps. He sails the seas fearing no one and practices his brand of justice. He is a perfect example of how to stay true to your goals and never give it up for anything or anyone.

1.L Lawliet - Death Note

As mentioned earlier, L Lawliet is the other brilliant character from Death Note and easily one of the most loved anime characters of all time. He is a character like no other and is someone who always has you on the edge of your seat since you never know what is coming. He leaves you stunned even before he appears on the screen with just his voice. We get to know his brilliance within minutes of his introduction and we just can’t wait to see the cat and mouse game that ensues between Light Yagami and L Lawliet.
