Bishounen: The Most Handsome Male Anime/Manga Characters Ever

Updated on May 19, 2015

Because we have an abundant supply of handsome manga/anime characters, coming up with this hub became quite exhausting. From the the viewers' point of view anyone would qualify as good-looking but I also considered the universe from which my picks came from. Meaning they must look like a real bishounen both from our perspective and the from the eyes of the characters of the series from which they were selected. Ah, this was a lot of work! But without further delay, I give you my list of the most handsome anime/manga characters ever!

18. Kuchiki Byakuya - Bleach

Kuchiki Byakuya
Kuchiki Byakuya

My 18th most handsome guy is one of the strongest from Soul Society, captain of the 6th division and the current head of the Kuchiki Clan - Kuchiki Byakuya. He's got it all - fame, power, and of course, looks that could kill. Byakuya is usually cool and calm, and sometimes arrogant, but we don't mind. He is one of the most popular Bleach character based on Weekly Shonen Jump popularity polls and the most popular captain for the female Shinigami of Soul Society after being voted "number 1 captain we desire to release a photo book for" according to a poll by the Shinigami Women's Association.

17. Azuma Yunoki - La Corda d'Oro

Azuma Yunoki
Azuma Yunoki

On the 17th spot is the most handsome two-faced gentleman I've ever seen, Azuma Yunoki. Yunoki is a talented third year high school student majoring in flute at the Seiso Academy. He learned the piano first but after showing astounding progress and talent, he was forced to play the flute instead so as not to outshine his elder brothers. Of course, he is popular with the girls, but only Kahoko knows of his "dark" personality he wouldn't show to other people. Naturally, this mean side of him makes him more attractive than the other La Corda d'Oro guys ;)

16. Mabuchi Kou - Ao Haru Ride

Mabuchi Kou
Mabuchi Kou

On spot no. 16 is Ao Haru Ride's main male protagonist, Mabuchi Kou. He was initially gentle and sweet and cute during their middle school years but after his sudden disappearance he became cold, rude and sarcastic, but oh well more manly. Of course we were really annoyed by how he was treating Futaba then (after they met each other again in highschool) but I guess you can also consider it one of his charms - a caring, handsome tsundere always gets us!

15. Satsuki Shishio - Hirunaka no Ryuusei

Satsuki Shishio
Satsuki Shishio | Source

Satsuki Shishio (from the manga Hirunaka no Ryuusei) is the most handsome high school teacher, ever. He is a true gentleman, he dresses well and he is so damn good-looking. I'd rather say that he is a responsible adult, which led to how things ended just like that. Chunchun is his first love yes, but I AM HIS TRUE LOVE.

14. Kazehaya Shouta - Kimi ni Todoke

Kazehaya Shouta
Kazehaya Shouta

Kimi ni Todoke's Kazehaya Shouta is probably one of the most handsome and refreshing high school student I've seen. Being both good-looking and sociable, he attracts both girls and boys, with him at the center of attention all the time. Most interesting about Kazehaya is his selfishness, one which he admitted to both Sawako and Ryu, which is only mostly applicable to Sawako as Kazehaya easily gets jealous and wants to keep Sawako for himself.

13. Mashima Taichi - Chihayafuru

Mashima Taichi
Mashima Taichi

Grabbing 13th place is the smart, talented and of course handsome president of the Mizusawa Karuta Club, Mashima Taichi of Chihayafuru. I was originally for Arata, but man, every single soul would come to love Taichi's good looks, patience, dedication and most importantly his unequaled love and concern for Chihaya. From all the anime/manga I've seen and read, I believe he is the best male character forever and ever.

12. Kuranosuke Koibuchi - Kuragehime/Princess Jellyfish

Kuranosuke Koibuchi. And yes, Kurako is a crossdresser.
Kuranosuke Koibuchi. And yes, Kurako is a crossdresser.

Number 12 on this list is Kuragehime's Kuranosuke Koibuchi, the good-looking guy from a political family who is interested in beauty and fashion. He is appealing to both men and women whether he cross-dresses or not. He is usually confident in whatever he does and is the kind of person who doesn't care what people would think or speak of him. He looks best when he ties his hair up (when dressed as a boy)!

11. Takumi Usui - Kaichou wa Maid-sama

Takumi Usui
Takumi Usui

Takumi Usui is smart, talented and one of the most handsome guys in the Maid-sama universe. He is very popular among the girls, not just those from his high school. He looks cold and nonchalant (much to our delight) but is actually sweet and caring especially when Misaki is concerned.

10. Tamaki Suoh - Ouran High School Host Club

Tamaki Suoh
Tamaki Suoh

Ouran High's Tamaki Suoh can very well be Takumi Usui's brother. They almost look alike, with that blonde hair and good looks, with very similar circumstances as well. Like almost everybody on this list, his beauty is on a whole new level, he is cheerful and amiable as well and is liked by everyone. He can be stubborn and naïve (although we don't mind) but only because he always thinks of his friends first before himself.

9. Sata Kyouya - Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji

Sata Kyouya was supposed to be my boyfriend, but I had the kind heart to let him go because Erika seems to need him more. Kyouya is like the school's prince because of his looks and everybody thought he was a gentleman, but he is actually the most beautiful jerk on this list. He is a genuinely a short-tempered sadist who enjoys ordering Erika around, which was quite annoying in the beginning. Later on he leveled up and just became an insensitive but caring tsundere boyfriend. Well, we can handle that.

8. Miyamura Izumi - Horimiya

Miyamura Izumi
Miyamura Izumi

Miyamura Izumi is one of the main characters in the manga Hori-san to Miyamura-kun or Horimiya. He is quite attractive (Hori even notes how long his eyelashes are) but is not observed by a lot of people as he maintains a low profile in school as he was used to being alone (and in order to hide his piercings and heavily-tattooed body). When he dresses normally, however, not only Hori is charmed by his looks. He is the sweetest every time he makes a move on Hori!

7. Kurosawa Yamato - Sukitte Ii na yo/Say "I Love You"

Kurosawa Yamato
Kurosawa Yamato

On top 7 is Sukitte Ii na yo's lead guy, Kurosawa Yamato. He is totally handsome and the most popular boy in school. He is a nice and caring guy but he was originally a flirt and a flirt still he was, and I came to dislike him after all those night visits to Megumi's place (yes, even after Mei has already forgiven him). He has his own share of issues as well, like everybody else, but oh well he truly cares for Mei and he is really, truly attractive, you just got to give this spot to him.

6. Jinguji Ren - Uta no Prince-sama

Jinguji Ren
Jinguji Ren

We gotta thank the god of anime for creating a wonderful character in the person of Jinguji Ren from Uta no Prince-sama. He is the epitome of manliness, sexiness and perfection, and is more than worthy of placing 6th on this bishounen list. Ren is sociable and carefree and is sometimes proud, and the man flirts a lot. Who cares though, his mere existence is already a blessing for us all! <3

5. Nura Rikuo - Nurarihyon no Mago

Nura Rikuo
Nura Rikuo

Securing the 5th spot is none other than the Lord of Pandemonium himself, Nura Rikuo. His yokai/night form is absolutely one of the most handsome creations in the entire history of manga and anime despite that weird gravity-defying hair of his. He is charismatic and thus was able to form and unify his own Hyakki Yako in a short period of time. He looks most handsome when he leads his very own tumultous horde - and of course whenever he is shown caring for Tsurara XD

4. Yue - Cardcaptor Sakura

Yue
Yue

Now we are down to the fourth most handsome anime/manga guy ever and this place goes to Carcaptor Sakura's Yue! Yue is the guardian of the Clow Cards and later on, of Sakura Kinomoto. He is as beautiful as the moon (Yue translates to "moon" in Chinese), with his long silver hair tied loosely in a ponytail. He is cold and serious on the outside but is a responsible and caring guardian for Sakura.

3. Rokudo Mukuro - Katekyo Hitman Reborn!

Rokudo Mukuro
Rokudo Mukuro

Claiming the third spot is one of the most badass guy on this list - Rokudo Mukuro of Katekyo Hitman Reborn! The guys is literally bad and is literally an ass but as the Mist Guardian he is quite unique and irreplaceable in terms of power, strength, and of course attractiveness. He is different from all the other guardians owing to his dark past, but for us that is what makes him unique and lovable!

2. Soo-Won - Akatsuki no Yona

Soo-Won
Soo-Won

Akatsuki no Yona's Soo-Won was able to claim not just the throne but the 2nd most handsome character ever on this hub as well! His looks, personality and charisma stole not only Yona's heart but ours as well! I actually belong to Team Hak but there is just no denying how strong, smart and beautiful Soo-Won is! Despite not knowing his true personality yet, no one can disagree that the second place was meant for him.

1. Sesshomaru - Inuyasha

Sesshomaru
Sesshomaru

And now, I name the most handsome character in the entire history of anime and manga to be none other than Sesshomaru of InuYasha! Sesshomaru is a proud full-fledged demon, and is usually emotionless, cold and indiffirent. He fears no one, not even Naraku, as he is confident in his own power. He was your typical good-looking villain until he met Rin, and eventually the man became aware of that thing called emotion, though he wouldn't let anyone know of it. He became more and more "compassionate" (if you can call it that) as the series progressed which turned us all on. Regardless, evil or good Sesshomaru is the most handsome man ever!

Do you agree? XD

Poll Time!

Who do you think is the most handsome manga/anime character ever?

      Sesshomaru is really beautiful too. But Shun Andromeda is and always will be the most pretty one for me. In my teens I had a huge crush on him as I watched Saint Seiya the first time. He's also so gentle and almost chivalric. He believes in humanity, has so much mercy inside of him but when he has to fight, he fights hard.

      Soowon, Sesshomaru, and Yue all seem cute, but Soowon seems the nicest (despite his violent side) and Sesshomaru might be cuter and could use a feisty, cool gal. Yue is like a feminine angel. I said feminine based on his appearance almost like a girl.
