Top Ten Anime Characters of 2016

SelfDestruct
Now that 2016 has ended, let's take a look at the best characters in anime that premiered in the year of 2016. In this list only the anime characters that were introduced in the year of 2016 will be allowed, which means there will be no characters from ongoing anime unless they were introduced in the year of 2016 (which means no Naruto, Luffy, Goku, etc. as they were introduced as anime characters before 2016). As for anime that haven't aired in 2016, no characters of those anime are eligible for this list (which means no Sword Art Online, Attack On Titan, Tokyo Ghoul, etc.).

The Top Ten

1 Osamu Dazai - Bungou Stray Dogs Osamu Dazai - Bungou Stray Dogs
2 Ryunosuke Akutagawa - Bungou Stray Dogs

This guy is a badass villain that serves to make an already great anime to something even better. - SelfDestruct

3 Hiiro - Seisen Cerberus: Ryuukoku no Fatalites Hiiro - Seisen Cerberus: Ryuukoku no Fatalites
4 Avilio Bruno - 91 Days
5 Yuuki - Joker Game Yuuki - Joker Game
6 Seiko Kimura - Danganronpa 3

Yes Danganronpa 3 is divided into two arcs in which one is a sequel (Future Arc) and another is a prequel (Despair Arc) to the 2013 anime Danganronpa the Animation. However, Seiko was introduced in Danganronpa 3, the 2016 anime, so she qualifies. - SelfDestruct

7 Kyouma Mabuchi - Dimension W Kyouma Mabuchi - Dimension W

I have yet to watch Dimension W, but I can agree that Kyouma Mabuchi is a pretty cool guy. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

8 Giruu - Seisen Cerberus: Ryuukoku no Fatalites Giruu - Seisen Cerberus: Ryuukoku no Fatalites
9 Asuha Chigusa - Qualidea Code

Qualidea Code was a pretty decent anime. And although it had a good cast of characters, Asuha Chigusa was the best character in the series. - SelfDestruct

10 Jyugo - Nanbaka

The Contenders

11 Josuke Higashikata - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Josuke Higashikata - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Josuke Higashikata is a fictional character from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series created by Hirohiko Araki.
12 Ken Kaneki - Tokyo Ghoul Ken Kaneki - Tokyo Ghoul

Mind you but Tokyo Ghoul premiered in 2014, not 2016. Don't get me wrong. Kaneki is great but he just shouldn't be in this list for not debuting in 2016. - SelfDestruct

He is an amazing character who kept on fighting, even when he was in great pain.

13 Hoshimiya Eiji - Big Order

Even if Big Order will suck, at least I can admire this guy's god-like powers. - SelfDestruct

14 Yuu Tosaki - Ajin: Demi-Human

Okay! Fine. He was a total jerk in the first season, but he did make up for it with a lot of character development in the second season. - SelfDestruct

15 Shigeo Kageyama - Mob Psycho 100
16 Vegeta - Dragon Ball Super Vegeta - Dragon Ball Super

Vegeta finally had his time to shine when he overpowered Black - Jackamalio

17 Viktor Nikiforov - Yuri!!! On Ice
18 Arataka Reigen - Mob Psycho 100
19 Hayato Kisaragi - Hundred

He is probably overpowered but man does have badass powers. Granted they are probably not as god like as Hoshimiya Eiji's (from Big Order) but at least he is powerful, unlike *cough*Subaru Natsuki*cough*from Re:Zero*cough. - SelfDestruct

20 Shun Asanaga - Endride
