Aniwords – Where Do Hot Anime Boys Come From?

Thanks to the influence of a prominent fujoshi friend on Twitter (Mira, if you’re reading, you’re wonderful and yes, this is about you), I’ve kind of been working over the past few months or so at increasing my personal appreciation for good-looking anime guys. Whether they’re cute (you may recall my weekly palpitations over Danmachi’s Bell Cranel) or beautifully hot (shoutout to Kuroko’s Basketball and Kise), I think it’s a good thing for me to cultivate a healthy appreciation for good people aesthetics in both guys and girls.

Happily, the current anime season has had not shortage of cute/hot anime guys to aid me in this quest. So, of course, I spent this week’s Aniwords talking about how glad of that I was.

Here’s the link~

Of course, with a post like this, how can I not post a pile of objective rankings detailing the 10 best-looking anime guys of the season? How else will my dear readers know which guys they should be drooling over? Don’t worry—I am here to help. Objectively.

1. Orga (Gundam Tekketsu)
2. Kuroh (K: Return of Kings)
3. Yukine (Noragami Aragoto)
4. Mikoto Suou (K: Return of Kings)
5. Genos (One Punch Man)
6. Sogo (Comet Lucifer)
7. Mika (Gundam Tekketsu)
8. Hinata (Haikyuu!!)
9. Jirou (Concrete Revolutio)
10.Nishinoya (Haikyuu!!)

Oh, and if you’re looking for the Heavy Object boys, both of their designs are gross. No thanks.

  1. If you haven’t seen the show already, google the following:

    “Kamigami no Asobi”, “Apollon”, “transformation”.

    It’s a must-see, I kid you not. (The show, in general, is one my favourite reverse harems. Daisuke Ono as Hades steals the show.)


  2. In another reality, Heavy Object could have been one hell of a buddy-cop flick.
    And your top bishie is Orga, the latest of a line of sexy dark-skinned strutters such as Aomine and Archer. I approve. 🙂


  3. Well, hotness is in the eye of the beholder. I think my list would be very different from yours. Kuroh would be all the numbers, for instance. 😉 Oh alright, I suppose Fushimi can have one of them. From what I’ve seen of this season so far, it’s not a good one for me in the eye candy department. Pretty much just K serves my needs there. Ah well. The recent Akatsuki no Yona OVA with the whole group at the onsen gave me enough fan service to last me a while.

    I don’t enjoy sports anime, so maybe I’m missing out there, but I tend to prefer fantasy boys, especially ones with long hair and/or pony tails. I’m also open to man-buns.

    And, of course, a huge element for me is the voice acting. I adore the voices of Mamoru Miyano and Daisuke Ono and Junichi Suwabe. Give a hot guy a nice voice and I’m likely to fall to pieces. Especially if they can sing. This makes me weak in the knees, literally:

    Don’t tell my husband. 😉


    • Hey, I have Kuroh at number two! Perhaps I’m just giving him the short end of the stick because he’s not shiny and new like Orga…

      Miyano’s one of my all-time favorite voice actors! He’s voiced so many great characters, and he really does have an impressive range. Suwabe I didn’t notice until he showed up in Yona, but yeah, he’s got a slick voice, too.
