I’m pretty late . . . but in response to Nopy’s Top 10 Anime Girls of 2011, I have decided to make my own top ten list. Except in this list, I have chosen my favorite anime male characters of 2011. I didn’t cover many series this past year, but I hope you find a liking to any of the following anime based on my top male picks, in case you aren’t already familiar with any.
I am not as fond of his personality as I am with his character design. I love the way he looks! Pretty shallow of me? Maybe. He’s cool and all, you know? – willing to save lives, but I just think he LOOKS even cooler. Especially when his game face is on and he’s about to extract someone’s void – because when he does, his eyes turn red and he becomes a completely different person. A much more confident, kick ass, Ouma, Shu. Or could it be that I just like his powers and the yellow streaks in his hair? All I can say is that Shu is by far my favorite male character in Guilty Crown…to look at.
9. Niwa, Makoto from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko
It wasn’t my favorite anime, but I liked the main protagonist. He didn’t turn out to be a complete jerk or hide the fact that he was related to Erio. He was very brotherly in the way he always took care of her. Plus, he doesn’t look that bad either.
Another brotherly type but a little more experienced than Niwa – having a little sister himself. Don’t be fooled by his looks. His dyed-looking hair isn’t the trademark of a rebel. If I could have an older brother, I’d want an older brother like him, I guess. One who watches out for me is there for me and is patient with my weaboo characteristics. But more importantly…one who cooks for me~! ^0^
Even Yadomi can be labeled brotherly, even though his feelings toward Menma were more than that. He was willing to marry her! His situation is rather heartbreaking, yet, very heartwarming. How can I not love him?<3
Yuta is very underrated, in my opinion. He is frequently outshined by his younger brother Yuki and that’s probably why he’s one of my favorites. I find him more mysterious. My affection toward him grew after his date with that girl(which turned out to be one of my favorite episodes!). I also love that he’s a tsundere(like most on this list), but if I had to choose between a twin, it’d be the one who stands out the least, because that’s actually what would make him stand out the most to me.
Obviously, he’d be on this list. He went out of his way to take Rin into his home when she needed it most. I admire that about him. It was very precious to see his dere attitude as time passed with his new daughter. I certainly wouldn’t hate the guy who would take me in under those circumstances.
I am a big Megane fan. Who can resist a cute boy with glasses? Kaname is too cute and funny. I don’t know how many times he’s smacked his friends throughout the series haha. He definitely knows how to keep his friends in check. I wouldn’t mind a boyfriend who is as tsundere as he is. I don’t think I’d like a guy who is overly sweet. His smile, on the other hand, is very sweet. I enjoyed the anime a lot more because he was in it. He was never a bore to watch. There couldn’t have been a better class representative. I just wish I was one of them crushes of his.
I think the perfect word to describe Takano would be “smexy” haha. Believe it or not, he too wears glasses…from time to time. He’s also gay, in case you didn’t know – which makes him even more desirable(sigh). As a result, since I don’t stand a chance, I settled with admiring his qualities as a man. He’s pretty straightforward, clever, and an excellent lover. Wait, what do I know? I do know that he’s fancied by more than one man and a few woman in the anime, so I assume that’s reason enough. Except why are you with Onodera?! After all the pain he put you through!? Argh!
