2016 has been wrought with plenty of mishaps, but it also brought plenty of great anime, as well as some unforgettable and excellent characters. It's what made deciding best characters especially difficult, and we could still sense our own hesitation.
Here is our list of Top 20 Best Anime Characters of 2016.
20. Hifumi Takimoto (New Game!)
One of the members of the game production company's character design team. Hifumi Takimoto is especially shy to the point of avoiding talking to people or looking at them directly.
So as not to make her feel uncomfortable the other employees interact with her through the company's computer messenger system. When Hifumi's communicating this way she is very lively and outgoing.
19. Yuri Plisetsky (Yuri!!! On Ice)
Yuri Plisetsky has long blonde hair that covers one side of his face and blue-green eyes. He is shorter than average and has a thin frame; because of his appearance, he is nicknamed the Russian Fairy.
Yuri has incredible talent and is described by many to be a rising star in the figure skating world. Despite his age, he was able to surpass many older skaters to bag the gold medal at the Rostelecom Cup and the Senior Grand Prix Final.
18. Shinsuke Takasugi (Gintama)
Shinsuke Takasugi is the leader of the Kiheitai, a Joui extremist faction and a wanted fugitive. He was one of the main recurring antagonists in Gintama.
Takasugi has short, black hair with dark-purple highlights, often appearing pure dark purple in some shots. His left eye is bandaged as it was caused by Oboro during Joui war and after Shouyou's death.
17. Josuke Higashikata (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable)
Josuke is a tall, handsome young man of average build. The feature most important to him is his well-maintained pompadour, styled after that of an unknown man who saved his life as a child.
His pompadour has a tendency to become spiky with his mood, such as when he is irritated or angry.
16. Kashuu Kiyomitsu (Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru)
Perhaps because Kashuu Kiyomitsu was born in an impoverished environment, he believes that as long as he keeps himself pretty he will be loved by his owner.
Seemingly the polar opposite of Yamatonokami Yasusada with whom he quarrels all the time, they are good friends in reality.
