If you are an anime fanatic, then you understand why it is important to have your own closet of the best anime characters. These characters can either be heroes or villains in their anime series but at the end of the day they do teach us a great deal of invaluable lessons. Some are hilarious while others are just down right cool, it makes you feel like they were specifically made for that role. Here are some of the classic anime characters that should feature in any one’s best anime characters list;
Suzuha Amane (Steins; Gate)
As the anime series Steins; Gate starts off, anyone can mistake Suzuha as one of those core characters that help in developing the series main characters. However as it progresses and it becomes clear that Suzuha is not just a normal part time worker but a time traveller, then the whole twist in the series catches up and Suzuha turns out to be one of the main characters in the movie. Her resolve, strength and stoic nature makes Suzuha one of the best anime characters to grace our screens.
Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass)
Lelouch makes it to this list because of his meticulous thinking. Not only is he depicted as a great thinker and genius, he also has his own mistakes which kind of show the human aspect of him. The best part is that he learns from each of these mistakes and comes out stronger from them than he was before. If there is a character that can teach you a lot about will power then Lelouch is the person. The last episode of Code Geass pretty much sells Lelouch as one of the best characters having meticulously planned each and every action before and seeing them come to fruition.
King Bradley (Fullmetal Alchemist)
He is one of the most ruthless and intimidating characters in anime history. At first glance he may come out as any other villainous character in Fullmetal alchemist. However, when you see him fight, you will definitely feel the wrath of his monstrosity and violence. There are many villains in animes, however not so many can have the presence and frightening demeanour that King Bradley has. As a villain, King Bradley should definitely be among anyone’s best anime characters list.
Gon freecs (Hunter x hunter)
Gon’s unbreakable will and great struggles against any sort of opposition cement Gon’s appearance on the best anime characters list. There are other characters that equally play a role quite similar to Gon in their anime series (such as Aladdin in Magi), however what makes Gon special is the fact that he is a captivating character full of intrigues and has an innocence akin to any kid. He deserves to be show cased as a character to be emulated by young kids as they grow up.
There are many anime characters in the universe of anime, however these 4 cover probably all aspects of anime. You may have more characters that you feel should be on the list. Everyone has their own taste and liking.
