Top 5 Stupidly Charming Anime Characters We Can’t Help Loving
Anime is a world full of charmers of all types, from seductive smiles to incredibly smooth lines. And those charms can take a variety of shapes, such as a deft retort, a sympathetic expression, or even some energising, boisterous shenanigans. Even with their 2D disadvantage, the anime crowd should not be undervalued because it only takes a second to become mesmerised. We can’t deny that at some point or another, we’ve all been taken in by some ridiculously endearing characters, so here is our list of the Top 5 most endearing anime characters ever!
5. Hatsuharu Sohma from Fruits Basket (Fruits Basket)
It’s challenging to choose just one of Fruits Baskets’ heart-stealing characters! Any one of these characters, from the gruff but endearing Kyo to the sweet summer child Kisa to the slowly thawing Yuki, would make your heart melt. For our list, we chose Hatsuharu Sohma, the Ox of the Zodiac, who is underappreciated but still endearing. One of the show’s kindest characters by a wide margin is Haru. He can empathise with and make sacrifices for those he cares about despite his own insecurities and issues. From pleading with Shigure to save Yuki to confronting Akito for Rin, he consistently acts as a good guy.
The only other time, he adopts his “black” persona. Despite his infatuation with Yuki, The Zodiac Ox is generally a calm and pleasant person. However, there are times when he adopts a darker character and exudes the stereotypical bad boy attitude. Haru is essentially a good man and a bad boy rolled in one, so he can enchant you regardless of your tastes. This includes an aggressive need to pick fights, a shorter fuse, and a substantially bolder version of himself (though he’s very bold either way).
4. Sakata Gintoki from Gintama (Gintama)
Gintama’s Sakata Gintoki is a dubious selection for any list with favourable attributes at first appearance. He is lazy, egotistical, and plain sneaky. Gin-chan spends the majority of his time looking for free meals and avoiding his landlady since, despite all the odd jobs he takes on with the Yoroyuza, he is permanently broke. However, despite the many, countless, countless times when his character has been called into question, we do get to witness the characteristic that really makes him stand out. Gin-chan has a way of surprising you when you’ve given up on thinking he’s a good-for-nothing. He’s an incredibly skilled swordsman, a man who holds fast to his beliefs with an unwavering sense of justice (for the big things), who is undeniably loyal and affectionate with those he considers his people.
Gin-chan is the hero no one wants but everyone ultimately needs because she is always willing to help others, frequently at great personal expense and with little to no acknowledgment. The roughness of his less than admirable traits contrasted with these small aspects of his demeanour merely make him more endearing, and trust us, before you know it, Gin-chan in all his dubious magnificence, will have already won you over!
Additionally, he is amusing.
3. Rem from Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re:Zero Starting Life in Another World)
Rem from Re:Zero commands the screen with a powerful impact. Rem is a badass in her own right; she’s strong and powerful from the start, and she’s the one guarding Subaru. She is much stronger than simply physically and in battle. Rem is a powerful young woman at her core. Once you gain her trust, she will do anything in her power to help you. She has an unwavering sense of loyalty. Despite his overt desire to be with Emilia, she remains steadfastly committed to Subaru, and neither her love for him nor her relationship with Emilia have been affected.
She is immensely dedicated to her sister Ram as well, and Rem is frequently willing to put her own life in danger for people she loves and her sister without a second’s hesitation. Rem’s place in all of our hearts is cemented by the sincerity of her affection. She is simply so excellent that we have to name her our Best Girl!
2. Takumi Usui from Kaichou wa Maid-sama! (Maid Sama!)
The absolute pinnacle of the Shoujo male protagonist genre and arguably the GOAT, how can any list of endearing anime characters possibly be complete without him? Yes, Takumi Usui from Maid Sama is number two on our list. Usui continues to occupy a particular place in all of our hearts even if the show is long gone. Usui is a ridiculously capable individual who is smart, active, and gorgeous. He has a really terrific personality as well.
Usui, an all-around lovely guy, helps Misaki retain her secret (and pride) with no personal gain in mind. He is observant, devoted, and amusing, and he charms his beloved with his genuine goodness. We’ve all but given in to his attractions as a result of that and his teaser lines.
1. Nezuko Kamado from Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)
Demons are dreadful, wicked beings with an insatiable thirst for human flesh. What kind of universe could that possible have appeal in? Well, Nezuko is a demon that any Demon Slayer viewer will cherish in their heart within five minutes of meeting her, whether they believe it or not (literally). Nezuko is the “village beauty,” from her endearing pout to her huge pink eyes, so it’s no surprise that just looking at her will leave you speechless. But what if you combine it with her recently discovered demon power to transform into a baby version of herself? Our hearts can’t take how cute she just got, she just raised the bar!
If you weren’t already swooning over Nezuko’s charming demeanour, witnessing her stand up for her brother and act as the world’s best humanitarian by denying her demonic craving for flesh and starving herself against all obstacles, well, that just goes to show how precious she is on the inside and out!
And that concludes our list! We struggled to limit our selection to just these five due to the abundance of fantastic personalities available. We hope you appreciate our top picks for the most ridiculously endearing anime characters because there are a million different ways for us to fall for them, from shining hearts of gold and kind countenances to clever wisecracks and unflappably cool auras.
