The world of anime is undoubtedly filled with captivating characters, and while we’ve already seen some of the hottest anime girls, it’s time to check out all the hot anime guys of today!
While sexual preferences vary across cultures, individual experiences also shape them. And so, what comes as stimulating to one person may be discouraging for another. That said, certain physical features are almost always favored over other attributes.
For instance, a guy is likely to choose a curvy woman as it hints at her blooming fertility. Meanwhile, a female will look for a tall guy suggesting high testosterone, and therefore, his fecundity.
Still, sometimes it is just the boldness or shyness of a person that sweeps us off our feet.
And so, a human may compromise on looks, suppressing raw biological whims for the appealing and stable personality. But such bargains are made only in the real world!
In anime, the freedom to create any character combined with any personality presents us with an infinity of choices and finding out our very personal taste – ‘The Ideal Hottie.’
Since there are no ethical concerns regarding these eye candies, we only rank them based on their sensuality. So, I present a list of gorgeous anime guys that will bewitch you with their oozing sexiness.
The Hottest Anime Guys Of 2022!
50. Karma Akabane (Assassination Classroom)
Karma Akabane is a handsome but rude student of Class 3-E whose violent habits often leave him suspended from the class.
However, Karma grows into a decent man with enchanting manners as the story progresses.
However, puberty brings along much more than just a charismatic personality.
And so, his already adequate figure grows taller and sinewy, making his facial features appear more refined than before. The same crimson hair that once hung too low to give a reckless look are now styled sideways to expose his broad manly forehead, thus emphasizing his mercury eyes having a distinct golden tinge, providing an alluring touch.
49. Kagami Taiga (Kuroko no Basket)
Kagami Taiga looks nothing like an average high schooler with his colossal height and muscular build. His tanned skin, defined jawline, and prominent vascularity across his arms add to his masculine features.
The deep red hair having a black tinge at tips enhances his looks even further.
However, it’s his foxy wine-colored eyes that pour a particular ferocity to his demeanor, and his aura is so overwhelming that it resembles the intensity of a wild tiger.
This vigor is visible in all his dealings, from friends to foes. It even shades his passion for basketball as Kagami trains exceptionally hard to become a great basketball player.
However, he is already highly talented as he is often called “The Miracle who did not become one of the Miracles.”
48. Hisoka Morow (Hunter x Hunter)
Hisoka, akaHisoka the Grim Reaper, is a serial killer and the former associate of the Phantom Troupe. Though he is often viewed as an evil being, he is more amoral than wicked.
For instance, he slaughters anyone he deems unworthy. However, he would spare lives if he saw the potential of growth, only to kill them later.
And yet, he restrains himself from fighting those too powerful for him to handle.
But then, he is a sadist who gets his kicks out of torturing others.
Regardless, he is hot enough to make it to this list.
His slim but towering figure accentuates his windy raspberry hair and well-defined jawlines. But it’s his ember eyes and full lips that tone down his jittery joker attire and add a certain seductiveness.
However, his signature green teardrop on the right cheek and a Fuchsia star on the left cheek can sometimes make him appear rather eerie.
47. Gray Fullbuster (Fairy Tail)
Gray Fullbuster is an ice-make mage with the ability to create and manipulate ice crystals. His mostly laid-back personality is balanced with equally assertive behavior whenever he must lead.
Furthermore, he can expertly wield various weapons, including swords, hammers, arrows, cannons, and shields.
And so, his personality and skills are enough to lure anyone.
Still, it’s his sinewy body that receives the most attention.
While he makes no conscious effort to hide his toned muscles, he even strips out of habit, highlighting his scars, tattoos, and jeweled accessories.
And his spiky black hair contrasting his sapphire eyes are added advantages that make him one of the hottest anime guys of all time!
46. Heiwajima Shizuo (Durarara!!)
Heiwajima Shizuo, aka God of Destruction, is a violent man born with monstrous strength. He is also the arch-enemy of Izaya Orihara. Though Shizuo is short-tempered, he abides by certain principles regardless of his emotions.
For instance, he has never struck a woman or a child. So, he is kind of a gentleman.
Anyways, he used to have walnut hair matching his russet brown eyes. Later, he dyed his hair blond, stressing his pale complexion and diamond-shaped face.
But it’s his towering height and lean stature that give him sexually appealing looks in his slim-fit vest. Perhaps, his smoking also adds to his sizzling hotness.
45. Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez (Bleach)
Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez is part of the Aizen-affiliated army of Arrancar. While he appears relaxed and calm, he has shown exceptional brutality and impulsive behaviors.
However, his rudeness grants him bad-boy charms.
Though he is often considered parallel to Ichigo Kurosaki in terms of personality, their appearances contrast a great deal.
Grimmjow’s White Hakama attire is fashioned to stress his bouncy muscular torso. However, his arctic blue hair matching his electric blue eyes spray a unique magnetic charm. The green underlinings that resemble the eye markings of Panthera Cats further enhance his appeal.
But even his eyes don’t take focus away from his sultry high cheekbones, which is why he made it among the hottest anime guys of all time.
44. Benimaru (Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken)
Benimaru, aka Heavenly King, is an Ogre who evolved into a Kijin and, later, a Fair Oni. And so, his once monstrous and muscular ogre body shrunk into a lean and handsome youth of 6 feet.
Furthermore, his horns narrowed, emphasizing his already prominent collar bone. Even his rough and curly crimson hair turned into neat spikes, giving him a graceful and alluring charm.
But, this didn’t reduce the fierceness of his orange-golden eyes with iconic red tear-like markings.
Still, this shaded his carefree and hot-tempered persona to a cunning and confident one. Somehow, he now seems more comfortable in his skin and more precise about his life goals.
43. Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail)
Natsu Dragneel, aka Salamander, is a handsome youth with an athletic build rippling with muscles. His slightly tan skin and spiky pink hair undertone his fiery obsidian eyes. His eyes often reflect red flames or brown specks, making his fans confused about his actual eye color.
Still, his reckless but loyal demeanor is enough to give him a randy and sizzling air.
But, in a sense, it’s not just his smoking hot looks that can burn anyone.
Well, Natsu’s Dragon Slayer magic allows him to create fire from any part of his body, even sprout dragon fire through his lungs. While the flames change their vigor with Natsu’s emotional state, they grow enormous with his ever-growing strength.
42. Hawks (My Hero Academia)
Keigo Takami, aka Wing Hero – Hawks, is Japan’s No. 2 Pro Hero, albeit his exceptionally young age. Hawks is the fastest and the most youthful Hero to climb the list of popular Pro Heroes.
Takami’s quirk gives him magnificent feathery red wings that allow him to fly. But, he can also manipulate individual feathers as weapons, thereby earning his quirk the name “Fierce Wings.”
However, it’s his eyes that are his most remarkable feature.
Befitting his name, Hawks has raptor eyes with brown irises encircled by specks of gold. They complement Hawks’ messy and proficient blond hair. The look also bodes well with his slim yet athletic build.
Interestingly, Hawks also embodies the boldness and intelligence resembling a hawk. He looks calm and fierce even in the most alarming situations.
41. Nanami Kento (Jujutsu Kaisen)
Nanami Kento is an expert Jujutsu wielder who left sorcery to become an average salaryman. He eventually returns but keeps wearing formal business attire.
This attire gives his muscular build and lofty height an enticing look.
That said, Nanami has the most defined chiseled face for any anime character. His steel-grey eyes against his undercut blond hair build a graceful look, flaunting his aged years but making him appear highly masculine.
This appearance matches his stoic, calm, and indifferent personality.
Unquestionably, these traits are imbued even in his fighting style, where he is swift, precise, and efficient. Besides, like any reasonable hot male, he, too, wields a sword.
40. Miya Atsumu & Miya Osamu (Haikyuu!!)
With their towering figures, rippling with muscles as well as their prominent necks, both Atsumu and his brother Osamu top the charts of handsome anime characters. They both have undercut hair but with hair flips on opposite sides.
It was hard to tell Atsumu apart from Osamu until the twins dyed their hair. However, even with the same facial features, they have unique expressions and different eye colors.
Atsumu dyed his hair blond, giving his caramel eyes a kind and reassuring look. This color fits his carefree yet confident persona. He is an exceptional volleyball player and is famed as Japan’s Best High School Setter.
Meanwhile, Osamu dyed his hair grey, giving his striking blue eyes a perky look. This color bodes well with his calm yet competitive personality. He is an accomplished Wing Spiker and currently the owner of an Onigiri Shop.
39. Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto Shippuden)
Like most Uchihas, Sasuke has spiky black hair with a bluish tinge. His fair complexion and broad forehead emphasize his onyx eyes. Though Sasuke has average height, his lean and athletic build make him appear taller.
Though his bewitching features captivate others, his appeal mainly lies in his attitude.
Now, Sasuke’s calm and detached personality is combined with a twisted and almost sinister sense of judgment. Often, this leads him to make passionate and rash decisions – suggesting a charming boldness.
Since a considerable chunk of Naruto’s life revolves around Sasuke, even if Sasuke is not ranked the hottest anime guy, he certainly is the most popular one.
38. Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan)
Levi Ackerman is the most capable and famous Squad Captain of the Special Operations Squad within the Survey Corps.
Though Levi barely reaches above 5 feet, his personality is so charismatic that even his small stature adds to his mesmerizing seductiveness.
Besides, strenuous training and frequent visits outside the walls have gradually toned his body. His jet black hair is styled into an undercut, highlighting his jawline as well as his fierce sterling grey eyes.
While his decisiveness and boldness are tantalizing, his resilience and badassery are even more commendable.
Furthermore, his swift movements and superior blade-wielding skills take his fans into an exhilarating entrance.
37. Manjirou Sano aka Mikey (Tokyo Revengers)
Manjiro Sano, aka Invincible Mikey, is the leader and the founding member of the Tokyo Manji Gang. Initially, he is introduced as a carefree youth of short stature. Later, Mikey grows more caring, decisive, and assertive.
His aura develops a commanding characteristic, to the point his short height gives him a more compelling charm.
However, Manjiro’s appearance changes with timelines.
Earlier, he had long blond hair with slicked front and soft layers dangling freely against his onyx black eyes. Mikey has short black hair accentuating his broad forehead and a dragon tattoo on his nape in another timeline.
Recently, Mikey appeared with his mid-parted white shags compared to his bag-ridden pitch-black eyes. However, even then, his personality stood him out.
36. Kakashi Hatake (Naruto Shippuden)
Kakashi Hatake, aka Kakashi of the Sharingan, is the sixth Hokage of Konohagakure. His ability to learn any ninjutsu by observing them has led him to master about one thousand techniques. And so, rightfully earned him the title – ‘Copy Ninja Kakashi.’
While Kakashi wears a mask to hide most of his face, it does nothing to overshadow his well-defined jaw or his beguiling eyes, for that matter.
If anything, this adds a mysterious charm to his tall figure ebbing with muscles.
His platinum blonde spikes contrast his regular black eye but undertone his other eye – ruby-colored Sharingan. Furthermore, Kakashi’s calm, intelligent, and yet comically lazy persona gives him an exceptionally stylish vibe.
What makes him one of the hottest anime guys is that his looks are just a cherry on top of his already sensual personality.
35. Sebastian Michaelis (Black Butler)
Sebastian Michaelis, aka Professor Michaelis, is the demon butler and the senior staff member of Phantomhive Household. Despite being a demon, Sebastian is exceptionally polite and mannerly.
Since he wears only formal dresses, his tall and lean figure appears regal and graceful. Besides, his black hair with side fringes undertone his opal red eyes, still not overshadowing his handsome face.
That doesn’t mean he is a ‘Nice and lovely Devil.’
He often shows hints of his sadistic and sinister nature. However, that mostly comes off as either boldness or a bad boy vibe, adding to his attractiveness.
34. Portgas D. Ace (One Piece)
Portgas D. Ace is the son of the late Pirate King Gol D. Roger and the adoptive son of the Whitebeard. He is also a foster brother to both Luffy and Sabo. His intelligence and exceptional skills led him to become the leader of Spade Pirates and, later, the Second Division Commander to the Whitebeard Pirates.
Since Ace ate Mera Mera no Mi fruit, he can create and wield fire, rightfully earning him the name of ‘Fire Fist Ace.’
However, it’s not just his fist that’s on fire; his entire body exudes blazing and sizzling beauty.
His chin-length jet black hair part midways giving his onyx eyes a fierce look, and the child-like freckles that he inherited from his mother, add a soft charm to his masculine face. These traits match well with his polite manners.
Still, it’s his ripped muscles and tattoos that give him his characteristic lady-killer looks.
33. Ken Kaneki (Tokyo Ghoul)
Ken Kaneki is first introduced as a skinny youth with regular muscles. Kaneki turns from a human to a human-ghoul Hybrid as the story progresses. Consequently, Kaneki develops superhuman strength and learns Kagune formation that allows him to protect anyone.
But as his daily activities change, so does his body build.
While his facial features remain almost constant throughout the series, the same black shaggy hair that once gave his steel-grey eyes a childish and loving look later gave his rippling muscles a steamy appearance.
Even the red iris of his left eye that signifies his ghoul-ness and hunger for human flesh shade him an uncanny sort of spicy.
After enduring extreme torture, Kaneki’s entire hair turned into white fringes. But then, his black attire and growing height added a hint of detachment, effectively making him appear even more slinky.
32. Ritsuka Uenoyama (Given)
Ritsuka Uenoyama is a high school student as well as an accomplished guitarist. His black hair with a blue tinge is styled into the asymmetric fringes, with his ears and part of forehead visible.
This contours his sapphire eyes and collarbone, giving him an intoxicating appearance.
Besides, his personality is also exquisite.
He works hard to achieve his grades and life goals. His compassion and attentiveness to others’ feelings allure many towards him. However, his ability not to judge people based on mere rumors makes him stand out.
So, despite being gay, he can still make many women skip a beat.
31. Benimaru Shinmon (Fire Force)
Benimaru Shinmon, aka Waka – the Destruction King, is the Captain of the Special Fire Force Company 7. He is a hybrid of second and third-generation pyrokinetic. And so, he possesses a unique pyrokinesis ability to create enormous flames or even control external flames.
Though, both his personality and appearance are also flaming hot.
His chin-length black bangs emphasize his long and sturdy neck against his well-proportioned body. His muscles are chiseled to give him a manly appearance, even with somewhat of an average height.
However, it’s his eyes that distinguish him the most. His right eye is a cherry circle with a black iris, but his left eye is a white cross-shaped pupil within a ruby-colored iris.
This contrast in his eyes is in rhythm with his hot-tempered yet freakishly calm personality!
30. Yato (Noragami)
Yato or Yaboku, aka God of Calamity, is a God of War born from a wish. Therefore, he has killed many, including several Regalias. However, he became remorseful and ended up giving up his role.
But, his desire to be worshipped by the masses led him to become a ‘delivery god.’
He would do anything to gain popularity for just a 5 yen offering. Still, people assume he is lazy, greedy, selfish, and sometimes even a pervert.
Regardless, Yato’s beauty is indeed godly.
His shaggy hair does nothing to hide his well-defined jawline or facial features. If anything, the strands of hair make his electric blue eyes appear even more magnificent.
Besides, the way he wields his sword or even moves declares his masculine vibe.
29. Osamu Dazai (Bungou Stray Dogs)
Osamu Dazai, a former Port Mafia executive, is a member of the Armed Detective Agency. Since Dazai’s character is inspired by his namesake Japanese writer, Dazai’s ability to negate others’ powers is termed “No Longer Human” – a literary contribution of real-life Dazai.
Oddly, the two even share a bizarre ambition for double suicide with a beautiful woman.
Though real-life Dazai ended up fulfilling this wish, the animated version keeps on attempting suicides more comically than grave manner.
That said, Dazai is an exceptionally handsome man. His slender figure draped in a sand-colored trench coat makes him appear towering, even with his average height.
Moreover, Dazai’s intelligence, discerning ability, and combat skills only enhance his charms.
28. Naofumi Iwatani (The Rising of the Shield Hero)
Naofumi Iwatani is the Shield Hero – one of the Four Legendary Heroes. Naofumi struggles with bias, allegations, and undue disrespect throughout the series.
This treatment shifts his overly trustful personality into a bitter and ruthless warrior.
However, this does not take the focus away from his unearthly masculine features.
His messy black hair contrasts his green garnet eyes but does not eclipse his chiseled face. His broad shoulders and a towering height, almost touching 7 feet, make him exceptionally desirable.
Besides, his ability to mask his aggression behind a calm and relaxed personality spikes mysterious charms and makes him one of the gorgeous anime guys of all time!
27. Anos Voldigoad (The Misfit of Demon King Academy)
Anos Voldigoad is the first as well as the most powerful Demon King. His bloodline is so destructive and potent that the entire family struggles with fertility.
His resolute and stalwart personality adds a charm befitting his towering stature and lean muscles. But his ability to play with celestial objects or cast disintegration spells make him infamously cruel – earning him the title “Demon King of Tyranny.”
But it’s his beauty that’s genuinely crushing and ruthless.
His black bangs dangle delicately around his forehead, highlighting his burning ruby eyes. His cheekbones and a visible Adam’s apple give him an uncanny aura that intensifies with his relaxed demeanor.
26. Tatsuya Shiba (The Irregular at Magic High School)
Tatsuya Shiba, aka the Destroyer, is a student who can wield magic despite going under a magic lobotomy. He can still stop bullets, do systematic magic calculations, cast memory, and flash magic spells. He can even employ his compressed psions to cause nuclear blasts.
However, the lobotomy turned him devoid of most emotions, giving him a stern look.
But this stiffness only furthers his handsome features and so his appeal.
Tatsuya’s black bangs accentuate his smoldering sky-blue eyes. His athletic and slim figure make him appear taller than his peers, even with an average height.
While his intelligence and engineering skills are still blooming, he has mastered martial arts. He defeated his own master and trained a soldier, all before he turned 18.
25. Akitaru Obi (Fire Force)
Akitaru Obi is the Captain of Tokyo’s Special Fire Force Company 8. While he shows exceptional firefighting skills, he also seems to have a strong sense of justice and responsibility for his peers.
For instance, he was decorated twice for his strength and abilities. However, both his titles were revoked as he prioritized saving lives over following orders.
Anyways, his high morals and exceptionally courageous personality bode well with his physique.
He exudes raw masculinity with his muscular build and height towering beyond six feet. Furthermore, his dark and unruly hair styled into an undercut emphasizes his narrow but melting chocolate eyes as well as his diamond-shaped face.
24. Frankenstein (Noblesse)
Frankenstein is Raizel’s most devoted servant, attending to him for over 820 years and earning him the title – Raizel Knight No. 0. He is also an exceptional scientist whose contributions brought the scientific revolution to Union’s modern technology.
Though Frankenstein is usually a genial and empathic person, he can be exceptionally sadistic sometimes. Besides, his calculations are mostly precise, and his principles are unwavering.
Though this contrast gives him a charismatic personality, however, it’s his facial features that make him genuinely alluring.
You see, Frankenstein has shoulder-length blonde hair with side fringes, accentuating his brilliant blue eyes. Also, his broad forehead and well-defined jawline complement his well-proportioned body.
23. Diablo (Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken)
Diablo, aka Primordial Noir Heavenly King, is an executive of the Jura Tempest Federation and one of the Seven Primordial Demons.
And so, Diablo has a sinister yet graceful aura to him.
His jet-black hair is cut into asymmetrical bangs with side fringes dangling freely on his forehead. The red and yellow streaks in hair emphasize Diablo’s smoldering eyes having the black sclera and golden irises.
But, his formal attire and lean figure make him appear piping hot.
This combination of dark and perky charms is suitable to Diablo’s impulsive yet calculating personality. You see, Diablo shows restraint only when he truly wishes so.
But then, he is composed and polite nearly all the time except when he is talking to Rimuru.
22. Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop)
Spike Speigel is a bounty hunter and the partner of Jet Black – Bebop’s Captain. He fell in love with a woman named Julia and faked his death to leave Dragon Crime Syndicate.
His juniper hair is styled into an afro striking against his brown eyes, which vary in shade as one of Spike’s eyes is artificial. However, this furthers his alluring charms by accentuating his muscular build and lofty height.
This appearance fits the animator’s intention as Spike’s appearance is inspired by a handsome Japanese Actor named ‘Yusaku Matsuda.’
However, Spike differs from the real-life actor as he has a lazy and indifferent personality.
21. Toru Oikawa (Haikyuu!!)
Toru Oikawa is the Captain of Aoba Johsai’s volleyball team. While he is not considered a genius in volleyball, Oikawa trains and plans harder than anyone else. He even studies his opponents to strike better goals.
Volleyball aside, Oikawa has looks and charms to score anyone’s attention.
His gigantic height, lean and athletic figure interplay to emphasize his ripped muscles. Even his chocolate bangs are styled sideways, giving his caramel eyes a soft touch.
His female fans often follow him. Besides, he can easily flirt and give the kind of smile that pulls one’s heartstrings. But then, he can pass on passionate remarks without meaning them.
20. Sakamoto (Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto)
Sakamoto is a model student famed for his coolness and calm demeanor. While he is usually seen in his high school uniform, his body posture and athletic build give him a classy aura.
In fact, he is often called “Perfection.”
Sakamoto has steel grey eyes striking against his silky, black-colored side fringes. He wears cat-eye spectacles rimmed on single sides. While this adds to his model student persona, it does nothing to hide his diamond-shaped face.
His appearance and elegant manners make him a total lady-killer.
However, it also brings in negative male attention, which brings in challenging situations and scenarios. However, Sakamoto comes out of all these with grace, appearing even cooler.
19. William James Moriarty (Yuukoku no Moriarty)
William James Moriarty is a brilliant professor of Mathematics who despises noble classes pressuring other societies into brutality and a never-ending economic crisis.
But, instead of altruistic ideas, he starts to expose society by acting as a Crime Consultant.
This trait highlights Moriarty as a genius and a daring bad boy.
While his personality can outwit many, he is nowhere lacking in his looks. His enormous height and athletic build combined with his formal attires make him look tidy yet tantalizing.
His blonde hair is cut asymmetrical, with front bangs accentuating his ruby eyes.
18. Sherlock Holmes (Yuukoku no Moriarty)
Like other portrayals of Sherlock Holmes, anime has also introduced an eccentric yet charismatic and mind-blowing genius as the Consulting Detective. And so, even this Sherlock has no regard for norms, manners, or protocols.
If anything, he is barbaric in his dealings, even within his personal life. But, since “Brainy is the new Sexy,” so is our beloved Sherlock.
Technically, Sherlock’s chiseled face and smoldering turquoise eyes are just accessories to his appeal. He wears his chin-length blue curls in a ponytail.
However, his towering stature and semi-formal suits give him an effortless teasing look.
Besides, his boldness is commendable. He seems to care nothing about opinions as he regularly does drugs to get high, smokes to keep himself stimulated, and solves cases to feel he is on top of the world.
17. Shinya Kogami (Psycho-Pass)
Shinya Kogami is a former Inspector and an Enforcer. His extraordinary intelligence and distinguished skills led him to become a Tactical Advisor within the Suppressing Operations Unit of the Foreign Affairs Operations Department.
Besides, he is famed for his sharp instincts and detached but calm personality.
Since he wears formal two-piece suits of black and sometimes grey tones, Kogami appears tidy even with his tousled brown hair and excessive smoking.
That said, his sterling grey eyes, sinewy body, and an overpowering aura emphasize his presence even with his somewhat of an average height.
16. Adam (Record of Ragnarok)
Adam, aka “The Man Most Detested by the Gods,” is the first-ever human to exist. Consequently, he is the progenitor of all humanity and “The Ultimate Survivor.”
His lean yet tall and muscular build gives him a very masculine touch.
However, his platinum blonde bangs fall delicately around his ocean blue eyes, giving him both an ethereal and alluring appearance.
Since Adam was created in the image of gods, his beauty and charisma even stirred gods.
Charms aside, Adam also possesses godly strength, stamina, endurance, and the ability to copy any tactics by simply observing them through the “Eyes of the Lord.”
15. Ichinose Tokiya (Uta no Prince Sama)
Ichinose Tokiya is one of the music students at Saotome Gakuen who was chosen as an S-class musician because of his skilled vocals. Later, however, he got demoted to Class A musicians.
While his voice is melodious, Tokiya’s features are even more ethereal.
Ichinose Tokiya has turquoise hair styled into side fringes with a hair lock reaching between his eyes. While this shapes his face, it also undertones his matching sapphire eyes.
But his looks bode well with Tokiya’s cool and calm aura. Still, he is a perfectionist who strives exceptionally hard to meet his own standards.
14. Makoto Tachibana (Free!)
Makoto Tachibana is a handsome man. His towering figure combined with slightly tanned skin highlights him even with a regular school uniform.
His forest green eyes against dripping olive shags add to his kind and charming persona.
However, this description does no justice to his muscular chest rippling with muscles visible when Makoto pulls off his signature backstroke while swimming.
Makoto has an extraordinarily calm and considerate personality despite his unusual manly features. He is the most reasonable among his friends and often maintains peace between them.
He is also extremely kind to animals and even his rivals.
13. Gilgamesh (Fate/Zero & Fate Stay/Night)
Gilgamesh is a dignified youth who is part human and part God. His melting lava eyes give his golden hair fringes a burning sensation.
This appearance intensifies his irresistible charm, which he frequently uses to manipulate others.
Typically, Gilgamesh wears a Golden Armor stressing his heavy presence. But he does nothing to hide his well-endowed body or libido, for that matter. He indulges in all kinds of vices and entertainment as he seems unbothered by mere opinions.
So, even if Gilgamesh may not be the hottest anime character, he certainly is the most seductive one.
With his Gate of Babylon, Gilgamesh has an endless supply of Noble Phantasms. Therefore, he can take advantage of anyone’s weakness. Furthermore, his spirit is worth hundreds of souls.
12. Kyo Sohma (Fruits Basket)
Kyo Sohma, the adoptive son of Kazuma Sohma, is a handsome youth with a lean and athletic build. His well-defined chin and nape give him a stunning look despite his average height. Furthermore, his graceful martial skills enhance his charisma.
However, it’s his ember hair and foxy garnet eyes that make him a total Hunk.
Befitting his burning features, Kyo is a hot-tempered and impulsive teen. However, whenever he experiences a heightened emotion, he turns into a cat.
It’s because the spirit of Cat cursed him – the would-be-zodiac who would’ve been a part of the Chinese Zodiac had only the Rat not tricked it into missing the Ceremony. This curse caused Kyo to suffer discrimination as the rest of his family was cursed by original zodiacs.
11. Giyu Tomioka (Demon Slayer)
Giyu Tomioka is a Demon Slayer and the current Water Hashira – one of the highest-ranking combatants of the Demon Slayer Corps. While he plays only a supporting role, his muscular features make him stand out the most.
He ties his coal-black hair into a messy ponytail with tufts of hair sticking out and uneven bangs shaping his face. However, his large sapphire eyes gradually fade into ocean blue, giving him a teasing look.
His already magnetic gaze is intensified with his calm personality, speaking only when utterly necessary and saying only what fits the moral standards.
Besides, he is an expert swordsman, so who wouldn’t find him enticing?
10. Takumi Usui (Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!)
Takumi Usui is a handsome man with an athletic and towering build. His flowing muscles and prominent collarbone give him an erotic touch, and his golden spiky bangs against emerald eyes foretell his British Heritage.
He is, indeed, an English born to Lady Patricia Walker and her butler, Yu Hirose.
Looks aside, his ability to excel in any field gets him attention from all his fellows.
Though he seems to have a detached and calm personality, he is painfully aware of others’ feelings as he too suffered a lot of loneliness throughout his childhood. Therefore, he can even go out of his way to help others.

9. Megumi Fushiguro (Jujutsu Kaisen)
Megumi Fushiguro is a Grade-1 Jujutsu student and a descendant of the Zenin Family. He is often seen in the standard Jujutsu Tech uniform, consisting of long-sleeved and a high collar shirt with matching trousers.
However, this only highlights his tall athletic figure.
His navy-blue spikes and diamond-shaped chin give his sapphire eyes a fiery look.
That said, I find his light green eyes from the comic version far more alluring as it fits more with his calculating yet deeply caring persona.
Anyways, he seems willing to combine physical strength with his sorcery, making him an exceptionally unique jujutsu user.
8. Son Hak (Akatsuki no Yona)
Son Hak, aka Lightning Beast, is a tall and stalwart youth with exceptional martial art skills. He is the former General and Chief of the Wind Tribe. Later, he becomes a soldier for the Sky Tribe.
His messy black bangs reach below his eyes, underscoring his icy blue yet warm eyes. This contrast is also visible in his sarcastic yet deeply caring behavior.
But it’s his bulky muscles that make him a total Knockout.
You see, Son Hak’s constant training gradually turned his already towering and broad-shouldered frame into a body rippling with muscles.
While his body draws attention, even his signature Chinese glaive-like weapon called Hsu Quandao adds a certain spark of boldness and uniqueness to him.
7. Roronoa Zoro (One Piece)
Roronoa Zoro, aka “Pirate Hunter,” is first introduced as a lean and athletic youth. His garnet eyes match his green hair styled into a crew cut, adding a splash of color to his tanned skin.
But after two years of vigorous training, Zoro’s muscles grew in mass and stature. Even his hair grew shaggier, which gave Zoro an extremely masculine vibe, along with his several scars.
That said, Zoro’s attractiveness doesn’t come from his manly looks. Instead, his appeal lies in his bold yet morally strong personality.
Though he has no sense of direction, he more than makes up for his aloofness with his ability to wield three Katanas with fantastic skill.
6. Haruka Nanase (Free!)
Haruka is a university student as well as an expert swimmer. His constant swimming practice has gradually turned his tall and lean body into a sinewy built. His rippling muscles are most pronounced around the midriff and triceps.
His black hair is styled into a side fringe with bangs casually dangling between his electric blue eyes, adding to his fuming sultry looks.
Even his freestyle swimming and swift gliding movements have charming characteristics.
Despite his aesthetic appearance, Haruka is a quiet person. However, his confidence and decisiveness are commendable.
5. Eishi Tsukasa (Shokugeki no Souma)
Eishi Tsukasa, aka White Knight of the Table, is a handsome youth with a lean and athletic build. His smoky eyes with icy blue irises complement his white hair that reaches down his nape while covering most of his forehead.
Though he wears a regular Academy uniform, his unbuttoned shirt peeks at his muscular collarbone, giving him a sensual feel.
Befitting his looks, Eishi Tsukasa has mastered French Cuisine with Salt Crust Baking as his food Forte. His culinary skills are so good that he holds the first seat of Elite Ten Council at the Academy.
Eishi can get exceptionally pessimistic and doubtful despite his alluring charms at times. But even as a depressed chef, he doesn’t lose confidence in his cooking skills.
4. Ban (The Seven Deadly Sins)
Ban, akaUndead Ban, is the King of Benwick and father to Lancelot. He is notorious as Fox’s Sin of Greed and frequently shows gluttonous behaviors. However, he also displays occasional generosity.
For instance, he didn’t hesitate to give up his immortality to resurrect Elaine.
This unpredictability gives Ban an irresistible charisma visible even in his looks.
Though his bulging muscles and broad shoulders give Ban a masculine charm, his spiky blue hair contrasts his foxy ruby eyes to add a splash of color, making him appear a bit funky.
Despite his conflicting image, Ban is one of the most persistent characters. He gained fame for his resilience after surviving his time in Purgatory.
3. Gojo Satoru (Jujutsu Kaisen)
Though Satoru is an extraordinary sorcerer who deals with cursed magic on daily basis, his looks are anything but vile or abominable.
On the contrary, he personifies heavenly appeal and a befitting enigmatic personality.
Initially, his silver-white spikes and a signature blindfold suggested a Kakashi-Sensei-like persona. It even teased several fans for some looming darkness. However, Satoru hides his eyes simply because he has inherited Six Eyes – rare ocular jujutsu that tires him out quickly.
Still, his towering lean figure and entirely black outfits are enough to underscore his attractiveness and make him one of the hottest anime guys right now!
So, who knows if Satoru hides his striking blue eyes just not to draw more attention?
2. Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)
With his soul-crushing spiritual powers, Ichigo turns from a regular human to a part-time Shinigami. His sword-wielding skills and impressive reflexes make him one of the strongest anime characters of all time.
While this enhances his cool and detached persona, Ichigo also cares for others and has exceptionally high moral standards. Even so, his empathy contradicts his hot-headedness and lack of manners.
However, he embodies this contrast in his ethereal appearance.
Ichigo has spiky orange hair against his melting chocolate eyes. His almost permanent scowl and lean yet athletic figure give him fierce looks.
Besides, he garbs slim-fitting black attires that emphasize his well-chiseled chest.
1. Sinbad (Magi Series)
Sinbad is the Leader of the Seven Seas Alliance, the former King of Sindria, and the president of Sindria Trading Company. He is also an exceptional swordsman and dungeon capturer with seven Djinns currently in his possession.
Besides, he can employ Magoi Manipulation to sway others’ authority.
Influence aside, Sinbad is, without a doubt, a beautiful and handsome man.
His towering and muscular build with a tanned complexion fits all the conventional male beauty standards. And his long purple ponytail and medium-arched eyebrows accentuate his topaz-colored eyes.
He furthers his features by adorning himself with metallic jewelry, amplifying his already charismatic and bold personality to the point of making him irresistible.
Since he seems to lure both men and women alike, he is the hottest anime guy who can make anyone sweat.
As the anime keeps on introducing us to new and more seductive characters, it’s hard to say what kind of guy will turn us on in the future. Or, perhaps, make us feel jealous of his eternal youth and undying appeal.
While the hot anime guys in this list will remain the same in our memory, I hope we get to see more and more such male characters appear in all kinds of anime in the future!
