Top 10 Sexy Anime Men

Why settle for one husbando when you can have ten? Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Sexy Anime Men.

For this list, we’ll be dreamingly sighing over some of the most attractive men that anime has to offer. From the kind-hearted guys we’d bring home to mother, to the devilish assholes we’d sneak off with, these are the guys who make up our fan-fictional fantasies.

#10: Levi Ackerman
“Attack on Titan” (2013-)

The Survey Corps are some of the bravest and most foolish military forces in anime history. They’re the group who has the most direct contact with the deadly titans, so joining them is essentially signing up for a death wish... unless if you’re Levi. It’s not just his finesse in battle that attracts us, it’s his no-nonsense attitude while dealing with titans and people in general. He’ll beat the crap out of a guy in order to make a point and look bored while doing it, but deep down, we know he cares for his team. Oh, and he’d keep the house clean, that’s a plus.

#9: Shinya Kogami
“Psycho-Pass” (2012-14)

How many check marks can we give this guy? Let’s see. He’s mastered the fine art of the “just rolled out of bed” look. He wears a suit. He wears a suit and a tie. That suit and tie are covering some well-trained muscles. He’s an Enforcer who used to be an Inspector, but is now obsessed with finding the killer after his friend is brutally murdered.
Is that too much baggage for you? Alright, lets go back to his good looks and effortless charm.

#8: The Medicine Seller
“Mononoke” (2007)

A man so mysterious that no one knows his actual name, the Medicine Seller wanders around killing mononoke, the unnatural spirits that linger around in our world. He’s known for being cunning like a fox, and like a fox, he’s got a bit of a mischievous side, which he politely keeps to himself. His personality adds to his appearance, which feels like watching a beautiful watercolor painting come to life. As if his normal appearance weren’t breathtaking enough, there’s another side of him that possesses an almost ethereal beauty with tan skin, white hair, and golden tattoos all over his body.

#7: Taiga Kagami
“Kuroko's Basketball” (2012-15)

The sports anime genre is a fangirl’s dream. It’s a genre full of athletic men who are often sweating, panting, and dealing with their feelings on and off the court. While they all range in appearance and build, sometimes, you’re in the mood for a large, lovable hunk of man, and there’s no finer example than this power forward. Very tall and muscular for his age, he can be a bit stubborn and is definitely hot-headed, but those are qualities that draw us to him since it fuels his determination to succeed. Or maybe it’s the mess of red hair that does it.

#6: Joseph Joestar
“Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure” franchise (2012-)

You know how people assume that women take forever to get ready? We’re willing to bet that the dazzling male cast of this series take a hell of a lot longer. The rippling muscles. The glamorous poses. The gentlemanly behavior. The crazy attacks. Honestly, we’d be good with any of these fellows, but we had to give it to Joseph. He has greatness in his blood since he’s the grandson of Jonathan Joestar, and we can’t help but feel weak over that smile and that perfect physique. We also don’tmind how he looks when he gets older, either. Gray suits him well.

#5: Howl
“Howl’s Moving Castle” (2004)

We can all use a bit of whimsy, and no one delivers that quite like Howl and his amazing castle. Armed with that dazzling jacket and dashing good looks, he’s like a magical prince charming who, unfortunately, can be a bit of a prick. Sure, he’s a lighthearted spirit who can whisk us into the air and show us how to walk across the sky, but he’s also a bit of a selfish drama queen. He’s a fixer upper, for sure, but deep down he’s a good guy who is waiting for the right person to take hold of his heart... literally.

#4: Takumi Usui
“Maid Sama!” (2010)

The kind of guy who can only exist in our wildest teenage dreams, Usui is the walking definition of perfection with his blond hair and dreamy, green eyes. Oh, and he doesn’t mind kissing boys. However, he finds his popularity dull and rejects the love confessions he receives on an hourly basis... which toootally makes him cooler because we’re working with high school logic. He does eventually become interested in someone: the lone human being who isn’t infatuated with his existence. And like most misguided young men, he thinks the way to her heart is through teasing. Awwwww, he doesn’t know how to deal with his feelings.

#3: Archer
“Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works” (2014-15)

Ladies and gentleman we present a character as complex as he is beautiful. Witness Archer. One of the servants in the Holy Grail War, he enters the scene with that bad ass red coat and wild tuft of white hair. While he and his master are initially disappointed in each other, they begin to form a bond throughout the series that leads to a series of incredible battles... and betrayal. He is a bad boy after all.

#2: Sebastian
“Black Butler” (2008-)

Sebastian Michaelis is a lot of things: a butler, a protector, and one hell of an enticing anime character. He’s the guy who can sweet talk anyone, and they would smile right back, oblivious of his dark, diabolical side. Appearing as Ciel Phantomhive’s butler, many don’t know his true, demonic origins. Hell, we the audience still don’t know his backstory, we just know that he’s bound to Ciel, has to take his orders, and will, eventually, devour his soul. We know that isn’t supposed to sound appealing, but seriously, we probably wouldn’t mind having him devour us, either.

Before we drool over our number one pick, let’s take a longing look at these honorable mentions:

Kyo Sohma
“Fruits Basket” (2001)

Tamaki Suoh
“Ouran High School Host Club” (2006)

“Seven Deadly Sins” (2014-15)

Shizuo Heiwajima
“Durarara!!” (2010)

Zero Kiryu
“Vampire Knight” (2008)

“Inuyasha” (2000 - 04)

#1: Makoto Tachibaba
“Free!” franchise (2013-14)

The best part about this series is there are so many options. Do you go for the red head with a homoerotic rivalry against the water obsessed boy? Or the energetic blond who’s practically married to the guy with the glasses? For us, it’s Makoto, with his boy next door charm and penchant of wearing his big ol’ heart on his sleeve -- especially around Haruka, always and forever Haruka. Yep, we pick Makoto because he’s a sweetheart... and for his back muscles. Dear lord, those back muscles.
