Top 10 Hottest Anime Guys

The Top Ten
1 Sebastian Michaelis (Black Butler) Sebastian Michaelis (セバスチャン・ミカエリス, Sebasuchan Mikaerisu) is the titular deuteragonist of the manga and anime series, Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji). He is the demon butler and a senior staff member of the Phantomhive household.

Sebastian possesses qualities I have never been able to find in other characters. I may not even have the words to adequately explain him. The best I can do is to point out his impeccable posture, well-kept face, beautiful hair, and entrancing eyes. His hotness, sexiness, and true beauty also come from within.

Is it cliché? Perhaps, but clichés often hold truth. Many people first notice that he is under contract, but if he weren't a caring being, he wouldn't have done half the things he has for the people he's encountered. I understand that people have different tastes when it comes to characters, but in my opinion, if you don't appreciate what's inside someone, you have no taste at all.

If you also pay attention to the fact that he is a demon, then compare him to the demon butler Claude from season two. Observe the difference in how they treat their masters. I guarantee you're seeing through blind eyes if you think Claude is better in his treatment. I could go on listing and comparing examples, but life is too short. So yes, I believe Sebastian is the hottest anime character in every possible way.

2 Takumi Usui (Kaichou wa Maid-sama) Takumi Usui is the deuteragonist of the anime and manga series Maid Sama!. He is a student at Seika High School and works part time at the maid cafe Maid Latte.

He is just perfect! He says the strangest things and doesn't hide his naughty thoughts. He looks like an angel but acts like an overprotective, possessive bad boy - albeit in a cute way. The best part is how he loves to talk about dishing out punishment with Misaki but is always on the receiving end of it. He has a river of patience just flowing.

And I'll never forget that when he figured out that kissing Misaki had made her really nervous, he goes ahead and kisses a guy just to make her think it didn't mean a thing. He is the best perverted, otherworldly human stalker ever.

I am a 100% fangirl for Usui! There has been no one like him that I've seen yet, which keeps forcing me to rewatch Maid Sama and skip to his scenes each time. Every scene he's in is amazing: every single word, every single joke, every single look, or pinned-down person. Everything he does and is oozes sex appeal to me.

I don't even fully understand why, but I think it's because it's all backed up with obvious true love and caring. There's no ulterior motive, no gimmicks, and no real malicious trickery. The writing for his character is great! He is the sexiest and definitely deserves the top spot for so many reasons not even listed or touched on here.

3 L (Death Note) L Lawliet, exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

L, oh my dear L. The hottest damn anime character of all time. From the happy look to the malicious look I can so easily imagine, your face is entrancing. From your black, messy hair to your pale skin, you're so emo, and that's incredibly hot. The simplicity of your design, both in clothes and body, is simply amazing. The way you sit, which supposedly improves your reasoning by 40%, makes you resemble a little owl.

The way you eat all those sweets (please share) is divine. You don't gain a pound, but with all that tennis, who's surprised? You sleep with your eyes open, allowing me to stare at them the entire time. You're so smart. You knew who Kira was the whole time but valued friendship so much that you told yourself it was impossible. And finally, the moment of your death broke so many hearts. You fell, just like an injured owl, to the floor from a heart attack, leaving us with Kira and your legacy. Oh, how I wish I could see you in real life. I would advise you never to join the Kira case, and if you did anyway, I would help you catch Kira without letting you know that I know who he is. If only I could protect that little owl.

4 Gray Fullbuster (Fairy Tail) Gray Fullbuster a fairytail wizard is a kind sensitive person which can be mainly found in underwear or fighting a guildmate / friend brother Natsu Dragneel (which I am supersede dint make this list) anyway Gray has a habit of stripping which he found while training with his now unfortunately dead master Ur. Overall Gray is kind but cold he is a ice maker Mage with huge insecurities he loves his master... read more

Gray is my soulmate. I know it sounds insane, because I'm a 16-year-old and, if he were real, he'd be 18, but I feel that if we met, I'd fall in love with him. I get called a lot of nasty names because I've basically fallen in love with an anime boy, but I genuinely love him more than I could love any real man. I constantly wish to meet the real-life equivalent of Gray. I'd marry him straight away. He's so incredibly hot!

Gray is the most beautiful anime character of all time. If he were real, I would marry him. I may sound like a simp, but I'm genuinely in love with him.

This guy is sexy and hot. I just love his stripping habits, especially since he has an awesome and amazing muscular body. Thank you, Hiro Mashima. Plus, I love his personality. *Sighs*. I could just stare at him all day and not give a damn about what's going on around me. Plus, his looks are amazing - those eyes, those beautiful dark blue eyes, and that pretty hair. His voice is super seductive.

5 Levi Ackerman (Shingeki no Kyojin) Levi Ackerman is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama. He accompanies the main protagonists in the second half of season 1. His most notable feature is being "Humanity's strongest".

Not only is he hot, but he also has an amazing personality, in my opinion. He possesses intelligence, bravery, leadership, and strength. Deep down, he really has a heart. He just doesn't show it. He may be hostile, but that's just how he is. He was raised that way, after all. As the saying goes, don't judge a book by its cover. On the outside, he may seem like a cold, rude man, but on the inside, he is a warm, caring, and emotional person. You just have to get to know him and understand his story and personality, which is why he should be in the top ten, not where he is now.

Levi is one of the hottest men. As people have already said, he may seem like a cold, rude, and uncaring person, but once you understand him and what he's been through, you can find deeper layers to his personality. He is caring, kind, and honestly, quite funny. Not to mention how bold he is. Levi doesn't get embarrassed easily, and if he does, it doesn't show. In my personal opinion, that makes him even more irresistible. He can be a tease, flirt, and be sexual, all while pulling it off and successfully making you have a nosebleed.

6 Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass) Lelouch Lamperouge, whose real name is Lelouch vi Britannia, is the title character and protagonist of the Sunrise anime series Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

"He was chosen as the most popular male character of 2006, 2007, and 2008 at Animage magazine's annual Anime Grand Prix." What more is there to say? He is handsome, smart, and protects the ones he cares about.

He is the only character who is the bad guy for two whole seasons and still makes everyone cry in the last episode. He is the black prince, the demon emperor, the BLACK KNIGHT, and the man who destroyed the world to create a better one. Dammit, I fell for him once again.

I am so in love with this guy. I haven't even seen the full anime, only certain episodes here and there, and only at the beginning. But his face got me hooked on anime. He should be at least in the top three. I mean, LOOK at him! His personality is amazing too. If you like bad boys with an attitude, intellect, and a really selfless streak that melts your heart, VOTE FOR HIM!

Lulu is just >///<. I've been rewatching the show, and I just can't look away from him. Those enchanting violet eyes and that smile... I think I'm in love.

7 Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist) Edward Elric, commonly nicknamed Ed, is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

This came down to a choice between Ed, Lelouch, and Light, but when I really thought about it, I had to go with Ed. He has gold hair, gold eyes, is seriously ripped, and is the best alchemist ever. He has badass double prosthetics, and to top it all off, he's not a complete asshole.

One of the things I notice in most anime characters people consider "hot" is that they are almost always either total jerks or complete psychopaths and sociopaths. Ed is kind. He actually cares about his brother and getting them back to normal, as well as helping other people. Not to mention the way he fights, or how good he is with words, or... I could do this all day. Plus, I think it's kind of cute when he freaks out about being called short. He really does deserve to be higher up on here.

Edward is hot. He's from an anime classic. And his hair... I love his hair. Usually, I turn away from guys with long hair, but Ed makes it look so sexy. His automail is amazing. Plus, his adorable height just makes you want to snuggle him.

Then you're left with the decision to make up your mind: is he sexy or adorable? This starts a war in your brain, and someone just ends up dying. That's when the fighting stops and you have a funeral for that dead brain cell. That's what Edward does to people. He kills people with his hotness. That's why he deserves to be in the top ten. Plus, he is super sweet.

8 Sesshomaru (Inuyasha)

To some, Inuyasha is the reason they started to like anime. (I watched it on Adult Swim on Cartoon Network years ago.) And Sesshomaru is the hottest antihero there is! Cold and calculating, this demon hates humans. But it's such a shock when he took in a small girl. It proves that he has a sweet side too! His armor looks badass, and I love white hair with golden eyes on a guy. So, what's not to like? To my first anime love, Fluffy-sama!

Let's just freaking start by saying that this man makes my punani throb every time he pops up on the screen while watching Inuyasha. When I tell you that this man could kill me with his brother's Tetsusaiga and bring me back with the Tenseiga, I mean it. He might be a cold bastard who can catch feelings for a human, but man, have you seen him?

He is also the strongest demon. He's so powerful and so freaking cute. Like, damn, take me to hell just to be with him! I love Inuyasha, but Sesshomaru is just a whole snack, meal, masterpiece. He's just all of the above. Personally, I feel like he's just a little jealous of his brother, but who cares? I love my evil/nice man.

9 Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach) Ichigo Kurosaki is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

Ichigo is just too awesome. He always cares for his friends and helps them whenever they are in danger. His awesome quotes are, "I'm not Superman, so I can't say anything big like I'll protect everyone on earth. I'm not a modest guy who will say it's enough if I can protect as many people as my two hands can handle either. I want to protect a mountain-load of people." "...If fate is a millstone, then we are the grist. There is nothing we can do. So I wish for strength. If I cannot protect them from the wheel, then give me a strong blade, and enough shatter fate."

I haven't watched Bleach in forever, but Ichigo was kind of a husbando for me until I found out what Ichiruki was. Anyway, he's protective and charming, something I look for in a guy. Not to mention, he's probably the perfect guy to cheer you up if you're ever down in the dumps. He would probably make you laugh your head off with some story about some stupid mess Renji had gotten him into, meanwhile making you forget about whatever was bothering you.

10 Light Yagami (Death Note) Light Yagami is a fictional character and the protagonist of the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

I definitely think Light Yagami is the hottest and sexiest male anime character ever! Many people may dislike him, but I can't help but admire him. His intelligence makes Light even more attractive. Yes, Usui is also hot, but sorry, he can't compare to Kira's greatness! This is the first time in my life that I support and like the bad guy. Besides, I actually wanted him to win, so Kira for the win! He deserves to be number 1.

Although I am against Kira's idea of his "new world," Light is just so intelligent that he had me subconsciously rooting for him. In terms of hotness levels, he just wows me. He's amazingly handsome and smart. He is Japan's #1 student, after all. He's also good at sports and was the national tennis champion. I'm sure he has other talents we're not aware of.

But the thing I like most about Light is that he is the most realistic and relatable character on this list. Unlike the other guys listed here, Light has flaws - flaws that many other people have, minus the God-complex. He tends to be narcissistic, he's admitted to being naive at times, and he's cold, arrogant, and manipulative. This makes him far from perfect. It makes him more human.

The Newcomers

? Yano (Odd Taxi)
? Jiruo (Made In Abyss)
The Contenders
11 Lavi Bookman Jr. (D.Gray-man)

I personally love him for several reasons: 1) Every time he is told something by Bookman, he calls him an old panda and gets pounded for it. 2) His sweet and funny side. 3) His looks. When Road takes control of his body, I feel like I could fly through the TV, punch her in the face, and tell her to stop messing with people's minds!

He's goofy, silly, mysterious, and that eyepatch... Seriously, he is such an enigma. He's constantly fighting between the part of him that is a bookman and the part of him that is Lavi. I want to know everything about his past, all his experiences, and what his real name is. He can act like a fool, but when it comes down to it, he knows what needs to be done. And when his hair is down? Oh man, the sexiness is off the chart.

Ultra-sexy, Lavi is very sarcastic but selfless. He has orange hair that is normally kept in a bandana. He also wears an eyepatch that looks hot on him. He is usually very smart, but sometimes he can be stupid.

12 Tomoe (Kamisama Hajimemashita)

My heart is broken knowing that he's only a character in an anime. He needs to be real! Someone make this happen. He's so hot, and his voice, hair, and eyes are all incredible. He's kind of feminine in a way, but he's still really strong. He defeated a WAR GOD in 5 seconds with his hot fox fire. The feels are real. I love him with everything I have. I just can't.

This man is so responsible and has such good manners. Why isn't he real? He's dependable and gets stuff done, unlike some other people in the world. And don't even get me started on how beautiful and handsome he is. His hair flows majestically in the air, and his pale complexion just adds to it. Given that he is a fox, I would let this man yell at me and not be mad.

I am shocked he isn't in the top ten. His ears, his tail, his absolute devotion to the one he loves - he's incredibly handsome. He was literally THE bad boy 500 years ago (and he had long hair, which is ridiculously hot). He wears traditional Japanese clothes so well that he probably invented them. Tomoe is everything.

13 Itachi Uchiha (Naruto) Itachi Uchiha is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.

If being a shinobi who wiped out his whole clan (and entered the ANBU at an extremely young age) and still takes the time to indirectly take care of his little brother doesn't explain Itachi, I don't know what can. Physical appearance-wise, he is beyond gorgeous. And when it comes to intelligence, no one can deny his prodigious abilities. Then, there's that soft side of him that Sasuke has a hold of. What's there to hate?

Even before I truly knew he was actually a good guy, I always knew he was tragically hot. While I wouldn't marry him or even remotely trust him by a long shot - killing his own clan and family, even for the sake of peace that may only buy a few more years, has crossed certain boundaries I can't fully come to terms with - I cannot deny that, as dark and mysterious as he is, he's breathtakingly cool and drop-dead gorgeous in his own right, especially when he shows his softer, human side towards those he truly cares about.

Being both complex, smart, and good-looking, he should definitely earn his place as one of the hottest guys in the anime world.

14 Yu Kanda (D.Gray-man) Yu Kanda is a character from D.Gray-man, a manga series created by Japanese artist and writer Katsura Hoshino.

Part of the reason why I like him is because of Allen. Yeah, I ship them. Got a problem? Now, think about Kanda x Allen. Yasss, that's the image. Got a nosebleed yet?

He has always been my favorite anime character! Besides Sebastian (from Black Butler) and Hisoka (from Hunter x Hunter), Kanda has been my username and passcodes for as long as I can remember. I even spent money to buy a poster of him! I never spend money on anything, so this is a great accomplishment.

I personally believe he should be in the top 10. I mean, seriously, why is Usui #1? I get that he's cute, but besides that, he's a little annoying >.> - not to offend anyone.


Lavi is further up on this list, but I like Kanda better. Every time I come to a part that he is in, I'm always like, Oh my God, it's Kanda, because he is so hot. (And Kanda x Allen is my OTP.)

15 Kakashi Hatake (Naruto) Kakashi Hatake is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. In the story, Kakashi is the teacher of Team 7, consisting of the series' primary characters, Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, and Sakura Haruno.

Kakashi is definitely THE hottest anime guy EVER. I'm not just talking about his breathtaking physical appearance. It's more than that. Everything about Kakashi is hot: his looks, his voice, the way he carries himself, the way he fights, his sense of humor, and most of all, his personality. Naruto was my favorite manga/anime series for a very long time, thanks to Kakashi alone. Kishimoto-sensei deserves an award for creating a man like Kakashi.

Kakashi is my dream! Oh my gosh. I think it's strange to have the hots for a dude in a mask, but it makes him all the more intriguing. I just love how laid back he is but can kick ass if he needs to. He should not be 25th on the list. In fact, the only reason I came to this site was to see if he was number one. But he's not. And I'm disappointed. And so should you all be. Shame on you.

He is such a beauty, definitely my first love. It's stupid to rate them just on looks. He deserves higher. If it were an all-around competition for who is the best man, he would win. How many times did he risk his life to teach lessons and to save others? The reason he wears a mask (this is a fact) is that if he took it off, he would be too beautiful to be taken seriously. He would be harassed too much to remain a secretive, powerful Jonin Ninja. So, he's technically in first place.

16 Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z) Vegeta is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

People need to understand that not all of a guy's sexiness comes from the way he looks. Vegeta has, by far, one of the most beautiful character arcs in all of anime. He starts off as an evil Saiyan who sees no value in the life of anyone but himself but becomes so much more when given the chance for forgiveness, a chance he didn't even want.

He went from being an arrogant prince, afraid to die, and slowly changed into a proud husband and father who smiled in the face of death to protect his loved ones. So maybe he is the hottest anime guy out there, but I think he is way too low on this list.

People always focus on his good qualities, but yes, he was evil for a very long time. In the end, he fought his inner demons and emerged as a good person. Now, I don't hate Goku, but I'm not that big of a fan because Vegeta has gone through so much. Of course, he's going to be a jerk. I mean, wouldn't you be if you had to work for the jerk who destroyed your family and home planet? Though, I still think he's an amazing, awesome, sexy character, and I like his bad side as well. That's just my opinion.

17 Renji Abarai (Bleach) Renji Abarai is a fictional character in the Bleach manga series and its adaptations created by Tite Kubo.

With Renji, you have a sexy and beautiful man at the same time. He is incredibly sexy, and he can be gorgeous too, especially when he lets his hair down.

Ok, so why is Renji at the end? He is so hot that the room gets hot when he's on. I'm practically screaming, "Take off your shirt!" He's got hot hair, hot tattoos, and hot, sexy muscles (DROOL!).

Renji is the very definition of BADASS! With his burning red hair and tattoos, oh God! He is so yum! He's strong yet stupid, kickass yet a gentleman. I don't have the slightest idea why this guy is not in the top 10.

18 Future Trunks (Dragon Ball Z)

Dear Trunks,

Oh Trunks, what do I say about Trunks? Where do I begin? Well, I guess I would have to start on April 20th, 1969, when the first episode of Dragon Ball Z aired. The first time I saw your beautiful face, I thought to myself that you were just like a little eggplant. Your green hair, your fluorescent purple skin, and your kindness all captivated me. Whenever I feel sad, I search for your name on Google Images, and even though I mostly get ads for swim trunks, I know you're there. Your death in Season 4 shook me to my core. I know that as the world watched you perish at the hands of your own father, Goku, we were all devastated that we would never again see your beautiful green eyes. I can only dream that one day you will return, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, and you will finally defeat the armies of stormtroopers that tarnished your family name.

I'll see you tonight.

Your eternal love xX,

19 Death the Kid (Soul Eater)

I have been in love with Kid ever since I saw him. He is perfectly imperfect in every way. Kid is kind of an oxymoron because he is absolutely obsessed with symmetry, yet only has three stripes on one side of his head. He is kind, polite, and oh so funny. Who wouldn't fall for him?

He is so cute. I love the fact that he is obsessed with symmetry. Not to mention, his reactions are also cute. He even ditched a battle because he was too busy admiring symmetry. And I'm kind of obsessed with people who have black hair.

I think Kiddo needs to be the first. He's not just hot. He's also a shinigami and a person with a psychiatric problem. This makes him not just hot but also funny. I like the way he uses his guns, Patty and Liz. His moves need to be symmetrical. PLEASE! Vote for Kiddo-san! For the symmetry...


20 Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail) Natsu Dragneel is a Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild.Natsu is carefree and reckless in nature, and, despite his consistent brawls with the other members of Fairy Tail, he is a fiercely loyal and protective friend. He is willing to go down fighting for his friends, regardless of how futile it might seem. Natsu has a straightforward mind, and often tackles issues with a "hands on" approach. His solution... read more

People must have lost their minds or something. Natsu is so hot I just can't explain. He should be in the top 10. Natsu is so nice and loyal. If a friend ever needs help, he will be there. He has so much magical energy and power, I just can't explain.

Natsu will never leave a friend behind. Even though he can sometimes be rough in the guild, he will always come around to help everyone. Everyone in the guild trusts Natsu with their lives because they know that he can do anything. Natsu brings hope to the guild, even if it seems as if nothing will get better. But when Natsu is around, they have hope again, and that is why Natsu fights for the sake of his guild, family, and friends. I think Natsu is such a great guy. So, if you have a brain, vote for Natsu to be number 1.

I wouldn't expect him to be here. I thought he'd be in a higher rank. I mean, he's super powerful, positive, good-looking, and never gives up! He makes you want to cheer him on against anybody, hoping he'd win. He has such a huge heart and lets out his full-rage power if his family or friends are harmed. He has a funny personality, which tends to make him seem like a real idiot at times, although he's smart when it counts... I think? He's one of my favorite characters. He ought to have been at the top!

21 Kei Takishima (Special A)

Although he's not expressive with his feelings and sometimes blatantly possessive, Kei is a very thoughtful man. He sincerely loves Hikari and, of course, he's handsome, intelligent, and sexy. Kya! Kei is perfection!

Even though he's a cold-hearted guy, I like the way he shows his love for Hikari. Even if Hikari is extremely dense, he manages to express his feelings to her. That's why I like him and gave him my vote.

Kei is one of the most attractive guys in anime. I like the way he shows his love for Hikari, how he can learn with just one try, and how he can finish a hard test in just one or two minutes.

22 Gareki (Karneval)

If the anime were more popular, he would be higher up on the list. Unfortunately, not many people even know he exists, so they don't get the chance to see him.

I really encourage you guys to at least check it out. Eye candy, plot, whatever - it deserves more love. I mean, he is WAY hotter than about eight of the people who are in front.

The only reason he won't go much higher than this is because people will see his name and have no clue who we are talking about, so they will skip over him.

He deserves at least 15th place. Higher, really. I just want to be realistic.

Yes, Gareki! He deserves to be in the top 10! Look at his beautiful eyes and his amazing smile... and his goggles. You should check him out.

Seriously, this guy is unbelievably sexy! The style is so different, it can't be put into words.

23 Portgas D. Ace (One Piece) Portgas D. Ace, born as Gol D. Ace and nicknamed "Fire Fist" Ace, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

Dear people,

I cannot understand any of you who fail to notice that Ace should be "Number One," or at least in the "top ten." Vegeta from DBZ, hotter than Ace? "PUH-LEEZ!"

Portgas D. Ace is: the son of Gold D. Roger, King of the Pirates. Second Division Commander of the Whitebeard Pirates. Shirtless. And he is only 74th in the ranking.

I can understand that maybe Takumi Usui beat him in the ranking. However, am I the only one noticing that he is there twice?!

WHAT! How is he so low? He should at least be in the top 10! I mean, no shirt. That speaks for itself. He should be at least top 10. How does he rank lower than all those others up there?


I never got over Ace! I was so upset. It was the first manga/anime that made me cry and it made me physically sick for 3 days. No joke. I care a LOT about One Piece.

24 Toshizo Hijikata (Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan)

I love this anime! My favorite character in Shinsengumi Kitan is Souji Okita, but Hijikata is awesome as well!

He's my favorite in Hakuouki! I wish that he could have a happy ending with Chizuru-chan. I also hope he could achieve a higher ranking.

Hakuouki is awesome, and there are so many hot guys, like Harada!

25 Deidara (Naruto) Deidara is a fictional character from the Naruto universe created by Masashi Kishimoto and developed into a media franchise, which consists of a series of manga, anime, soundtracks, OVAs, movies, video games, and other collectibles.

Oh my God, he is so hot. He is so funny and has a great personality. And how cool is it to date a guy who can blow things up? Deidara's personality is almost as sexy as his face, and the way he says hmm after everything is irresistible. Hmm, he's sexy.

Deidara is hot-looking with his sly and cute face, long mane, flying ponytail, and bang over one eye. His eye with a dilated pupil suggests arousal. He also has a hot voice and a hot personality.

He does NOT have the hairstyle of a girl. A bang hanging over one eye is seen in many anime guys, at least as early as Captain Harlock in 1979. He also has a samurai-style high ponytail, like Shinuemon from "Ikkyusan." For heaven's sake, don't be ignorant. Deidara's hair is so handsome.
