An anime’s popularity hinges on its characters. These are some of the most well received anime characters out there.
As hard as it is to admit, judging an anime is not always about the quality of the writing or animation. More often than not, it brings fans of any age back to the wild tribalism of their middle school lunch room as dominance is decided, not by wit or strength, but by a popularity contest.
As is constant with the early days of humankind, those who stand at the top are those who are most popular, and this is no different for anime and its characters, where the next casual fan may have their next anime of choice dictated by what they see the most, either in the recommendations of YouTube or on the backpacks and t-shirts of their fellow weebs.
Whether it be the best looking, more intriguing, or most badass character, anime as a medium is one that is often defined by its most popular characters. Whether they perfectly condense all that one loves about a series into a personified form or just absolutely steal the show, anime characters are a performance worth paying for on their own. Bringing things back to the glory days of that middle school lunchroom, this list will be deciding who really is the coolest of the cool, as it runs down the Top 10 most popular characters in anime history.
10. Itachi Uchicha – Naruto Shipudden
Sasuke Uchiha is one of the most famous edge lords in all of anime, but he wouldn’t be what he is today without the older brother.
Itachi Uchiha is the anti-hero that fans didn’t think for a second was bad, as they stared into his dreamy, Sharingan filled eyes. Whether it’s his iconic design, mysterious history, or cool moves, Itachi made millions of fans everywhere question why he isn’t the Uchiha the series focused on. It’s pretty much safe to say that he is most naruto fans favorite character even though he didn’t stay in the series long enough.
9. Killua Zoldyck – Hunter x Hunter
Hunter x Hunter is far from being a one-character show. Even now, the series has pivoted across an entirely different perspective, giving fans awe to how versatile and complex this spectacular Shonen can be. If there was ever a character to define how cool and varied this series can be, it would be none other than Killua Zoldyck.
Though the series tries to relegate him as Gon Freecss’ sidekick, Killua managed to grab a lot of attention for his mysterious family history, lethal talent, and constant contemplation of purpose and morality.
8. Sakata Gintoki – Gintama
Starting off this list is the class clown of anime who can make anyone laugh or even cry at the drop of a hat. Gintama alone is a series known as the king of anime comedy, infamous for its surreal humor, loveable characters, and insurmountable amount of pop culture references that even put Family Guy to shame.
Leading the series’ motley crew of clowns is the “White Demon” himself, Sakata Gintoki. Once a revolutionary during the alien invasion version of Japan’s Edo period, Gin now finds himself doing “odd jobs” across town just to make ends meat, whether it’s assisting in a sushi shop, solving local detective cases, or fighting off aliens. What helps elevate Gin to this list is his ability to pull off straight faced jokes, ecstatic straight man routines, and endearing, stoic lines, playing cool as both the humble fool and hard boiled badass with such mastery that Gin really sees no equal within his industry.
7. Naruto Uzumaki – Naruto/Boruto Series
The Hidden Leaf Village’s “Nine-Tailed Fox,” Naruto Uzamaki. Naruto defines the very essence of “started at the bottom,” as he began his journey as the incompetent outcast of his ninja school, only for the fans to cheer and cry as they watched him work and scrape to the top, training with the perviest of sages, fighting off the most powerful ninjas, and still finding time to look after his friends.
The #1 Knucklehead became #1 in several anime fan’s hearts (becoming my number one favorite character), as he gave some of anime’s best fights, character dramas, and underdog stories. And, just a couple of years ago, Naruto reached that rare breed of shounen protagonist that actually gets to achieve their dreams, as he finally became the 7th Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village, making readers and viewers who followed along the way feel like proud parents.
6. Roronoa Zoro – One Piece
Proving that supporting characters and second-in-commands can be beloved within their own right, the “Pirate Hunter” and first mate of the Straw Hat pirates, Roronoa Zoro, makes this list. In the beginning, Zoro was just a loudmouthed kid who thought that just having more swords meant he was stronger. However with diligent training and the pains of a lost rivalry, he’d go on to master the illustrious three-sword style and mature into the stoic badass that fans love to this day.
On his journey to become the world’s best swordsmen, Zoro has paved (in more cases, cut) a path of destruction that has left behind buildings, robots, and some of One Piece’s best antagonists. He is the coolheaded bedrock that has supported and guided Luffy as the Captain of the Straw Hats and a trusted companion that has proven to fans in more than one occasion what loyalty really means.
5. Light Yagami – Death Note
On a similar note of high concept, moral questions and suspense is the teenage savior of humanity and punisher of all that is evil, “Kira” Light Yagami. Light was once the good looking prodigy of his high school whose societal and family pressures only made him more and more distant from the mundane elements of every day life, until the opportunity of a lifetime literally fell at his feet, and he would begin a journey of world salvation and mass murder.
Having found the Death Note and entering a companionship with the death god Ryuk, Light now has the ability to kill anyone, anywhere by dictating their name and even cause of death within the Death Note. Taking upon the identity of “Kira,” Light uses his newfound opportunity to kill all of the worst criminals of the world, showing closure to some while launching a worldwide conspiracy/mystery to others. With his genius level intellect and eccentric passion, Light has lead fans in one of anime’s greatest cat-and-mouse chases.
4. Edward Elric – Fullmetal Alchemist
Acting as the protagonist to one of the greatest Shounen anime of all time, the “Fullmetal Alchemist” Edward Elric has brought fans equal parts spunky, underdog passion and morally conflicted human drama that most, if any, other Shounen protagonists don’t achieve.
After an alchemy experiment gone wrong that left him without an arm and his brother’s soul trapped in a suit of armor, Ed has lead fans on an absolutely stunning journey of existential and religious drama, political intrigue, heartwarming friendships, and epic, high concept alchemy battles. Despite his arrogant, loudmouthed nature, Edward Elric was the face of an adventure that anime fans everywhere ironically prayed for a happy ending.
3. Levi Ackerman – Attack On Titan
Moving on to a master of blades of a different breed is humanity’s strongest soldier as well as the Captain of the Scouting Legion division and the Special Operations Squad, Levi Ackerman. Since his introduction, Levi has earned more than just the fans’ love, as he’s absolutely taken their respect, as his role as the cold, stern faced captain scares to near Fullmetal Jacket levels but is mitigated by his tactful nature and genuine concern for his mission and team.
Beyond a leadership that even gets viewers standing to attention, Levi is also an incredible fighter on the battleground, as he’s showcased some of Attack on Titan’s most intense moments fighting off titans and other soldiers alike. Anyone who misjudges this man by his short stature may soon find themselves at the wrong end of a blade.
2. Monkey D. Luffy – One Piece
Appropriately entering in at #2 is the leader of Shounen Jump’s “Big Three,” the Captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, Monkey D. Luffy. The son of an infamous revolutionary and the grandson of a beloved marine, Luffy surprisingly had humble beginnings as just a little kid looking up to his pirate hero, “Red Haired” Shanks. After eating the Gum Gum fruit and being raised by bandits, Luff would go on to lead his own journey to become King of the Pirates, leading a loveable crew of misfits and outcasts that have ingrained the series with tons of personality.
And no other member of that crew has more personality than the captain himself, as the fun loving, simple minded rubber man has made fans laugh, cry, and stare in awe, as Luffy’s personal brand of justice and freedom are as provocative as they are endearing. Luffy’s just a guy who’s hard to hate, which falls in line with being a Shounen protagonist, but his own personal flavor promotes acceptance and dreaming in a way that other Shounen protagonists just haven’t done.
1. Lelouch Lamperouge – Code Geass
Ranking in at #1 is a complex character leading complex characters in one of anime’s most tightly structured and multifaceted series. Lelouch Lamperouge was at one point a prince 17th in line to the throne who renounced his status after the assassination of his mother and the crippling of his sister. Having been a political hostage in banishment within Japan as a student, Lelouch found his opportunity for revenge and redemption as he stumbled upon C.C., a mysterious girl who grants him the power of Geass, a strange ability that lets him dictate the actions of any person once.
With his newfound gift, Lelouch continues down a path of redemption and destruction as he becomes the leader of the revolutionary group the Order of the Black Knights, lies to and betrays his friends, and kills hundreds and thousands of people in the process. Seeing what type of man he becomes as he comes out the other side is just titillating enough to bring fans across a deep moral analysis and human drama.
Naruto Uzumaki is one of the most powerful ninjas to ever live. From his bloodline to his demonic tenant and stubborn personality, the ninja has tons of power at his hand. Now, it seems the balance is shifting in a big way, butBoruto fansaren’t totally convinced all is lost. After all, Kurama is a special monster, and fans aren’t sure if it can die.
Unfortunately, the answer to both questions is yes. The Tailed Beasts can die, and it seems that is really what happened in the anime’s latest episode. Kurama did not give his emotional farewell for no reason, and fans will have to come to terms with that on their own.
When it comes to Tailed Beasts dying, it is a rare event, but it does happen. Monsters like Kurama can die, but they do not pass from physical wounds or age. Instead, they die when they expend more chakra than they can recharge, and they have tons of it. This has happened to Tailed Beasts in the past, but they do not stay dead forever. After centuries, these drained monsters do return once enough chakra has gathered to resurrect them, and a reincarnation returns to Earth.
This is exactly what happened to Kurama in the anime, and it is because of Baryon Mode. The surprising form gave Naruto the power to fight toe-to-toe with Isshiki, but it came at a cost. Rather than costing Naruto his life, Kurama put his own on the line to help his host. Kurama used all of his own energy to fuel Baryon Mode, and that is why he had died. This gentle death is what kept Naruto from dying alongside Kurama in the end. And now, the Hokage must come to terms with the loss as he navigates life for the first time without Kurama within him.
What do you feel about this certain episode ?, was it a shock to see the death of kurama at this period ?, please share your thoughts at the comment section.
Boruto trended worldwide as it releases it’s latest episode 217 which revealed Naruto vs Isshiki in a satisfying fight scene.
Naruto fans couldn’t contain their excitement after watching Boruto: Naruto Next GenerationsEpisode 217, which featured an all-out battle between Naruto in his powerful Baryon Mode and the sequel series’ primary antagonist, Isshiki Otsutsuki.
The extravagantly animated fight received an overwhelmingly positive reaction from most fans for both its exciting action and its emotional storytelling. The fight sees Naruto utilizing his deadly but dangerous new form, Baryon Mode, which was first shown in the previous episode, to get the upper hand on Otsutsuki. Baryon Mode allows Naruto to mix his chakra with Kurama’s, a risky process that can potentially drain the Hokage’s overall lifespan, but gives him access to a new form of energy that is so powerful that it shocks even Sasuke and Isshiki. The episode also features numerous flashbacks to Kawaki’s past, as the young ninja compares his relationship with Naruto to the brutal treatment he received from Jigen/Isshiki, who raised him.
Several of the animators who worked on the episode couldn’t contain their excitement for it either, and posted their rough early animations from the fight so that fans could see the work that was put into the bringing the fierce melee to life. Artist Mitchell Gonzalez stated that they have been a fan of the series since they were a kid and happy to be a part of the episode.
The episode was produced by Studio Pierrot, who has been animating Naruto since the original anime adaptation debuted in 2002. The episode was directed and storyboarded by Nozomi Fukui, who previously worked on various movies in the Naruto franchise, as well as on Bleach and Pokemon.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is a sequel to Masashi Kishimoto’s original Naruto manga, which is one of the best-selling manga series of all time. The series takes place after the events of the original series, and centers on the teenage son of Naruto and Hinata, Boruto. Boruto has become a successful series in its own right, managing to sell over 1 million copies in its first year of publication.
Current episodes of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations are simulcast on Crunchyroll. Earlier episodes of the series can also be streamed on Hulu.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has finally revealed the much-awaited Baryon Mode in the latest episode, and fans cannot keep still since.
Ever since Naruto’s Baryon Mode was revealed in the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations manga, fans have been waiting eagerly to see it being recreated on screen, and they were not disappointed.
However, this insanely powerful “final form” of Naruto is the final milestone before fans are hit with one of the most tragic incidents of the manga/anime revolving around Seventh Hokage’s son.
Baryon Mode is genuinely one of the highlights of the Boruto manga and the anime and has perhaps redeemed the show in the eyes of stoic Naruto fans.
Here are four facts about this insanely powerful form that ultimately led Kurama to his death.
1. It led to Kurama’s death according to the manga
This is a fact that Kurama hid from Naruto when he suggested he use this mode to fight Isshiki Otsutsuki. Even making unnecessary moves and superfluous thoughts can drain this mode out sooner than it should.
In return for unimaginable strength and speed, Naruto had to bid farewell to one of his guardian figures, the lovable Nine-Tailed fox who watched over him in his way.
While this has not yet been revealed in the anime, fans who have read the manga are preparing themselves for this tragic bullet on screen.
2. His new strength rivals that of Isshiki Otsustuki in Baryon Mode
The Baryon Mode boosts Naruto’s abilities to rival that of Isshiki Otsutsuki, who, prior to this, rendered both Sasuke and Naruto essentially immobile.
However, it did not prove to be enough in the end as Isshiki ended up overpowering Naruto, although he was eventually defeated brilliantly by Kawaki.
3. It functions a lot like nuclear fusion
Much like nuclear fusion, the chakra of Naruto and Kurama fuse to form new energy in Baryon Mode. In terms of raw strength, it is far greater than the Kurama Chakra Mode or the Six Paths’ Sage Mode. However, it is really unstable and can easily drain out if he is not careful.
4. Losing Baryon Mode which also led to Kurama’s death doesn’t lead to naruto’s death
Unlike Gaara, who died after Shukaku was extracted (although he was brought back to life using Chiyo’s jutsu), Naruto is alive and well. However, he does not have superhuman strength anymore.However, in theory, he should still have Six Paths’ Sage Mode and the usual Sage Mode, which have proved to be more than useful to him over the years.
