DROP IT LIKE IT'S HOT: The Hottest Male Anime Characters
Criteria for Judging
Before we proceed to our hottest male anime character countdown, I would like to explain the criteria I used in selecting the hottest boys of all time.
- Face value - 10%
- Sexy body - 10%
- Bad boy vibes - 20%
- Sex appeal - 20%
- Being shower scene-material - 40%
Now, I give you these 15 sexy boys, as sizzling as summer!
15. Genjo Sanzo (Saiyuki)
Grabbing 15th place is none other than Saiyuki protagonist, Genjo Sanzo. Sanzo serves as the leader of Son, a group of four including himself, Gojyu, Goku, and Hakkai. What makes Sanzo real hot? A buddhist monk with that long sexy hair can only be hot!
14. Takumi Usui (Kaichou wa Maid-sama!)
Takumi Usui is male protagonist in Maid Sama and, just recently, fiancé of the female lead, Misaki Ayusawa. Usui is smart, athletic, and the most popular guy in all of Seika High! What fueled Usui's climb to the 14th spot? His hot, burning passion for Misaki.
13. Ran Fujimiya (Weiss Kreuz)
One of the male protagonists of Weiss Kreuz is Ran Fujimiya (although more commonly known as Aya after borrowing the name of his sister who is in a coma). Ran is a member of a four-man team named Weiss, along with Ken Hidaka, Youji Kudou, and Omi Tsukiyono. Ran and the others are "florists by day and assasins by night," as described by Wikia.com. Although known for having a cold personality, Ran's looks and overall personality is definitely hot!
12. Kazuichi Arai (Kimi ni Todoke)
Kazuichi Arai, also known as "Pin," is homeroom teacher to Kuronuma Sawako and Shota Kazehaya in the anime series Kimi ni Todoke. He seems goofy and childish, but in recent chapters he revealed a more serious and mature side. I wasn't sure if Pin will be better off on the coolest male anime characters Hub or on this one, but made my decision after seeing his hair down: Pin is definitely hot!
11. Donquixote Doflamingo (One Piece)
Donquixote Doflamingo is/was a Shichibukai member, King of Dressrosa, and the most influential figure in the One Piece underworld, using his alias "Joker." Doflamingo projects a carefree and wild attitude but is evidently strong and clever at the same time, making him a fearsome opponent for the Straw Hats. With a former bounty of 340,000,000 berks and hot, sun-kissed skin, I pronounce Doflamingo extremely hot!
10. Touya Kinomoto (Cardcaptor Sakura)
Touya Kinomoto is Sakura Kinomoto's older brother in the Cardcaptor Sakura series. He does not show it, but he obviously cares for his sister a lot. Touya is independent, athlethic and good-looking all in one, and hot enough to land a spot on this very hot list!
9. Soichiro Arima (Kare Kano)
Soichiro Arima is the main male protagonist of Kare Kano. He is naturally intelligent and good-looking and blessed with earthly fortunes and a hot girlfriend-turned-wife, Yukino. Arima conceals a dark persona which is explored in the middle and end of the manga series and is not covered in the short anime version. It may not look like it, but Arima is indeed a bad, bad boy, worthy of topping this list if bad boy vibes were the only criteria of this Hub!
8. Fuwa Sho (Skip Beat)
Fuwa Sho (complete name: Fuwa Shotaro) is a singer-musician in the Skip Beat showbiz world. He tricked the female protagonist Mogami Kyoko into believing that she was equally important to him as he was to her when they left for Tokyo to pursue his singing career. Although originally depicted as a cruel character who showed no regret for fooling Kyoko, it eventually came outthat he truly cared about Kyoko. His bad-boy image, above everything else, landed him a spot on this list!
7. Grimmjow Jeagerjaquez (Bleach)
Grimmjow, an Arrancar and Espada, is enemy to all shinigamis and one of the strongest arrancar among Aizen's forces. Grimmjow is extremely violent and hot-headed and shows no mercy to friends or foes. He has light blue hair spiked upwards (which kind of resembles Hitsugaya's) and has a sexy, muscular body that enables him to win maximum points for the "sexy body" and
"sex appeal" categories.
6. Keigo Atobe (Prince of Tennis)
Keigo Atobe is the team captain and best player of Hyotei Gakuen. Atobe is oozing with wealth, arrogance, and of course, sex appeal. Like Grimmjow and all characters on this list from rank 7 upwards, Atobe also won all 20% of the sex appeal category. His sexiest line and best known phrase is "be awed at the sight of my prowess!!!" —definitely narcissistic but totally hot!
5. Sebastian Michaelis (Kuroshitsuji)
Sebastian Michaelis (sometimes "Sebby") is the demon butler of the Phantomhive household. He made a contract with Ciel Phantomhive in exchange for his soul. Sebastian is damned handsome and possibly the sexiest anime character on this list. His sexiest line and best known phrase is "I am simply one hell of a butler" and as we all know, anyone who came from hell is definitely hot!
4. Hisoka (Hunter X Hunter)
Hisoka is one of the main antagonists in the Hunter X Hunter series and should be on the list of anime characters with the most twisted personalities. I don't know if a lot of people will find him sexy like I do, so I won't try to over-justify his being on this list. To me he is just plain sexy, especially with his hair down fresh from the shower! I especially love that particular scene with Machi (top left image). Definitely smoking hot!
3. Gokudera Hayato (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)
Gokudera Hayato, mafia boss Sawada Tsunayoshi's right hand man, is the Vongola's storm guardian. Gokudera is physically and mentally strong, intelligent, and really handsome! Gokudera is a bomb user (oops, hot!) and an excellent fighter. Gokudera is the third hottest male anime character ever because he has everything that we are looking for (refer to the criteria). It just so happened that the top two characters are giving off too much testosterone for me to measure!
2. Kougami Shinya (Psycho-Pass)
Kougami Shinya is the hottest male enforcer that ever lived (though he's still alive). He is a former Enforcer and Inspector at the Public Safety Bureau Number One. Kogami is highly skilled as a detective, smart, and excellent in hand-to-hand combat. Anyone who has seen him train topless, most especially against Tsunemori Akane, will agree that he is radiating so much testosterone that Akane mistook him for Edward Cullen at least once.
1. Kurosaki Ichigo (Bleach)
Kurosaki Icihgo is a human, a Shinigami, a hollow, a visored, a fullbringer and more recently, a quincy. He is a mix of everything and the main protagonist of Bleach. Kurosaki Ichigo is also a walking testosterone factory. We've seen him in various forms, states of mind, and hair styles, but one thing remains the same: Kurosaki Ichigo is, was, and forever will be the hottest anime character of all time.
