Finally, 2013′s list of most dateable anime characters


We’re perpetually jealous of anime characters. Being figments of someone’s imagination, anime protagonists are universally muscular, never have to diet, have awesome super powers and pretty much don’t have to give a single thought to our pathetic real person laws and social norms, so it’s unsurprising that many fans find some of their favorite anime characters to be both sexy and highly dateable.

A recent Tokyo Otaku Mode Survey posed the question to both men and women of 100 countries which anime characters they’d most like to date, with some surprising, and some not-so-surprising, results.

First, let’s look at male respondents’ top ten anime ladies:

[female anime characters]

10) Mio Akiyama – K-On
Just squeaking in at the number ten spots is K-On‘s cute but decidedly underage musician.

9) KuronekoOre no Imoto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (My Little Sister Can’t be This Cute)
We hope none of you out there actually have dreams of dating your own little sister.

8) Lucy Heartfilia
Fairy Tail
Fairy Tail‘s main female protagonist made the list, although she’d probably be upset about being beaten out by a lesser character.

7) Rias GremoryHigh School D x D
The picture pretty much explains how she made the list:

6) HoloSpice and Wolf
This cute character might have made the list because she is literally a deity and who doesn’t want to try dating a god?


5) Elza Scarlet – Fairy Tail
Elza Scarlet of Fairy Tail fame takes the number five spot, possibly because she’s not reluctant at all to fight in a bikini.

4) NamiOne Piece
One Piece‘s Nami ranked number four for almost exactly the same reasons as Nico Robin.

3) Hyouga HinataNaruto
Naruto‘s Hyouga Hinata grabbed the number three spot despite disturbingly having no pupils – a major turnoff in real life.

2) Nico RobinOne Piece
One Piece‘s Nico Robin came in at number two, almost certainly because of her enormous, erm… assets and bad girl attitude. Here she is showing fans plenty of what she has to offer.3

1) AsunaSword Art Online
Sword Art Online‘s Asuna took the coveted top spot among male fans, possibly for her penchant for showing a lot of skin and also knowing how to wield a badass sword – weapon-bearing women being a common fetish among male anime geeks.

A considerable number of ladies also responded to the survey, ranking their most dateable male anime characters. Unsurprisingly, the list of favorite male characters is a little more nuanced and is much more Google surfing at work-friendly, although the list is still mostly populated by stereotypical badass heroes:

10) Kakashi Hatake – Naruto
Rounding out the list of male characters is Naruto‘s apathetic but secretly kind-hearted Kakashi.

9) Portgas D. AceOne Piece
Sexy pirate Portgas D. Ace gave Zoro a run for his money. We guess it’s hard to compete with a guy that can kill you with a sword he holds in his mouth.

8) Roronoa ZoroOne Piece
This One Piece protag is a shoo-in for the list, albeit placing surprisingly low even with his three sword technique.

7) Sasuke UchihaNaruto
Naruto’s socially withdrawn ninja placed number seven this year, despite being motivated primarily by the desire to kill his own brother.

6) InuyashaInuyasha
The titular character of the old-school series stands the test of time at number six.

5) Makoto Tachibana – Free!
Apparently the exception to the rule, nice guy Makoto Tachibana finishes well ahead of his meaner rivals at number five.

4) Zero KiryuVampire Knight
Vampire hunter Zero Kiryu graces the number four spot.

3) Sebastian Michaelis - Black Butler
The demonic anti-hero of the Black Butler series grabs the number three slot with his dashingly handsome looks but slightly sadistic personality.

2) Takui UsumiMaid Sama!
This girl’s manga character reaches the number two spot with his perfect hair and slightly disheveled appearance.

1) LeviAttack on Titan
The year’s most popular anime unsurprisingly occupies the top spot with abrasive clean freak Levi. Fun fact: Attack on Titan‘s creator apparently uses real-life personalities as inspiration for the terrifying giant antagonists, including actual terrifying giant Brock Lesnar.
