I know that is a hard question! There are so many anime out there and many more characters to choose from. But there are some characters that draw us in more than others. You may have 1 or 20 fav characters. I have sooo many. But to narrow them down to my top 5 was very hard. But these 5 I will say def deserve to be my top 5 because I get super excited every time I see them on the screen.



We meet L in Death Note. He is a world renowned detective that has solved many difficult and unsolved cases. He comes to Tokyo to find Kira who is the serial killer behind the recent deaths of many dangerous people.

As soon as L’s voice was heard I knew I would like this guy. Then you finally see L. This lanky, slim, pale, dark circles around his eyes and kind of shabby guy. He looked AMAZING!!! Hahah he was such a different and unique character. I fell in love immediately. Not in a fan girl way. More like I want to be him, even though I’m a girl.

I really like L because he was extremely smart. He narrowed down all his suspects of Kira down to Light right off the bat. He kept his suspicions on Light the whole time. I was extremely fascinated with how unique he was with everything he did. From the way he sat in the chair, the way he wore no shoes, from him eating sweets and even how he answered the phone.

(spoiler ahead) You know my life came to a halt when L was killed. I literally didn’t know what to do with myself.

I have to say L is my ultimate favorite anime character no doubt about it.



In Tokyo Ghoul Juuzou is a special class ghoul investigator. He was partnered with Yukinori Shinohara. He was assigned to handle the Binge Eater investigation in the 20th ward.

At first when you see Juuzou in the anime you think it’s a girl. I was like wow this girl is crazy. Haha In the Manga I knew right away he was a boy. I like his style of clothing, he wear shoes that look like slippers, his colorful suspenders, his baggy white shirt, his Capri black pants, his white hair and then his stitches tops it all.

When he came out fighting and going crazy on the ghouls I was obsessed. He had no mercy and was ready to kill any ghoul in site. When they showed his back story I started to understand his maniac ways. He was kidnapped as a kid and was brought up in a crazy environment by a lady named Big Madam (wont go into details) and his original name was Rei. He was mistreated.

I sometimes wonder is he a hero or a villain? I mean don’t we like the ghouls. He is killing them. But yet you are rooting for him. It’s soooo confusing. But I still love Juuzou. I like that he is just a crazy maniac. It’s just so entertaining. Even his voice is crazy too.



Toto Sakigami a.k.a The Mockingbird is a deadman in Deadman Wonderland. He is considered to be the most powerful Deadman. He is the only person who has fought with The Wretched Egg and survived. Each Deadman had their own branch of sin (blood powers). Toto’s branch of sin is called Love labyrinth which can copy other deadman’s branch of sin if he gets a lick of their blood.

In the anime you don’t get to see Toto as much. But what you get to see you can get an idea of how free spirited he is. He is very flamboyant and seems carefree. He is friends with Shiro as well. I liked Toto because of his free spirited way. I loved the first full scene you get to see of him when Renji (The Crow) is showing Ganta (The Woodpecker) how to use his branch of sin. Toto comes into the scene and Renji is scared. He explains to Ganta who Toto is and Ganta freaks out as well. You then see Toto lick Renji’s blood. Such a cool scene.

So I read the Manga and you get even more of an evil side of Toto because you the find out (Spoiler ahead) that Doctor Hagire has taken over Toto’s body the whole time. The madness that he has and the craziness gets even more intense. It just makes me love Toto even more!!!


The next two names you may have seen these in my post about my top 10 favorite Anime villains. But these two are also my favorite characters as well.


In the empire Esdeath is a high ranking general. She is also the leader of an elite group of killers called The Jaegers who are in charge of killing Night Raid. Night Raid is an elite group of assassins that are trying to take down the Empire. Esdeath is a vicious/malicious general.

I loved Esdeath! I thought she was sexy, smart, tough and extremely strong. She knew what she wanted and that was to kill anyone in her way and to also be with Tatsumi. Her outfit was so cute. I think I may cosplay her one day. I loved her powers, the way she used her ice powers to kill people. She never wanted to be weak. She knew she must be strong.

Esdeath also had a charm to her. When you saw her with Tatsumi you felt a genuine person. She had a heart and she seemed real. I know she was a killer but I just liked that she was a tough chick and didn’t let anything stand in her way. Again, I was upset when she died.



Medusa is a witch related to the Gorgon sisters. She posed as nurse at the Death Weapon Meister Academy (DWMA). She is the mother to Crona (Demon Sword Master). Her goal in Soul Eater was to release the Kishin from his seal to recreate the world.

Well first off, I loved Medusa because of her snake vectors she used to hurt her enemies. I love snakes. Next, she was so manipulative that she used her own son Crona to do crazy things for her. She was the main antagonist in the series. She set the whole story to me. If it wasn’t for her we would not have such a great plot.

When I first watched the anime, I knew something wasn’t right about her, her face looked so sneaky. So I became more interested in her. When I saw her put the black blood into Soul I was like I knew it she is bad. Hahaha then when she came out with her army I was like wow this is getting crazy.

I became sad when I thought Dr. stein killed her. I was like who will be the cool bad guy now. Then she took over little Rachel’s body. I said DAMN how low can you go. Hahaha but she went there and continued in her mission to release the Kishin.

She is awesome and I wish they did a spinoff series of Medusa of where she came from.


So as you can tell from my list I like characters that are crazy, psycho or very evil. I was never in to normal characters. I like characters that stand out.



  1. Wow, I have so many favorite Anime characters!!! But my top three have to be Edward Eric from Fullmetal Alchemist (I will be finishing Brotherhood probably this week or next week — couldn’t binge watch the series because of school exams), Neji Hyuga from Naruto, and Armin Arlert from Attack in Titan.
    L is such an awesome character; I’ve loved him since he first appeared on screen. Also, Juzou is cool, too! He’s one of my favorites from Tokyo Ghoul.

  2. There are too many to choose one! Though L, your choice, is certainly a particular fave. I find that it varies, at the moment I might pick Shizuo Heiwajima (love you too Izaya Orihara), but I have DRRR!! on the brain since I’ve marathoned the lot recently and blogged about it just today. Off the top of my head, other faves of mine include Cowboy Bebop’s Spike, Levi from Attack on Titan, Kogami (and Makishima) from Psycho-Pass, and Nine out of Terror in Resonance – in fact pretty much anybody from Terror in Resonance. 😛

    I notice I’ve mentioned a couple of hero/villain pairs here. The most awesome characters are those with awesome opponents off whom they can bounce, maybe.

      1. And I’m almost with you on Juuzou Suzuya, but I think Nishio Nishiki has to be my Tokyo Ghoul fave. Defo Lubbock in Akame ga Kill!, when he died I was NOT happy.

      2. Too true, bet being an Akame ga Kill! character raises your life insurance rates. Oh here’s another one I like, Ajin’s Sato; perhaps not in my top choices, but a dude who rides in on a collapsing tower-block to literally crush his enemies deserves at least a mention I’d say.

      1. Well, she’s one of those “shack up with men and let them pay her bill so she doesn’t need to work” type. What drives me nuts is the fact that wants to role play my book 24/7, even though some days she knows I just wanna write it or go outside. What happen to sane women?

      2. I’ve tried to find my lady for years now, and as soon as I grow to care for a woman, one of three three things happen. She either lies to me, & I find out she’s married. A woman doesn’t want a relationship, but gets engaged a week later, or there’s my ex. After I broke up with her, I stopped looking! Me happy being single 🙂

      1. YES! I really liked Saber too. At first she seemed a little stoic, but I guess that was a part of her character. I really liked her by the end of the series though!
