anime boys

At one point of any millenial/gen z’s childhood life, they have had a crush on anime boys Keiichi from La Corda d’Oro. Keiichi is a freshman cellist in the music department, and is infamous for being a sleepy handsome boy and a cello prodigy.

As a prodigy, he is the youngest male contender who follows no one but himself. It is very endearing to see him sleep all the time, and be in a semi-confused and dazed state if and when awake.

Despite being in a literally loud department, he speaks very softly and gently.

If you love music, manga, and cute boys, definitely search for La Corda d’Oro!

Haikyuu!! Is one of the latest crazes lately. It’s known for its light story plot, but also with its cute anime boys main protagonist, Shoyo Hinata. He is a student at Karuso High and one of the school volleyball team’s middle blockers.

Hinata is such a charming character with his overly enthusiastic personality. He is excited for almost everything, which often leads him to making very impulsive judgments.

From: Attack on Titan

anime boys

Levi Ackerman is more famously known as Captain Levi. He is the anime boys squad captain of the Special Operations Squad within the Survey Corps. He is also famous for being the strongest soldier of all time.

Despite his serious role as the captain, Levi has a surprisingly youthful appearance. He is relatively short with a height of 160cm, but his body is extremely muscular due to the nature of his work.

He has short, straight black hair that is styled in an undercut curtain. He also often looks scary with his narrow, threatening dull grey eyes with heavy eye bags.

As compared to the other anime boys, Levi likes to live remotely. He is often perceived as a cold, emotionless, and harsh person. On the bright side, he has a hefty sense of morality and empathy.

He puts a premium on saving other people’s lives, even if it sometimes means sacrificing his own.

If you’re looking for a moody guy with a strong sense of morality, then you should give Levi a strong chance!

anime boys

Aladdin’s anime boys appearance truly stands out from the rest. He has a very short and small figure, with long cobalt blue hair and bangs that fan out over his face.

Like the typical Aladin, he always wears a small open vest and white, puffy Arabian pants with no shoes on. His entire torso is also wrapped up with bandages.

Aside from his out of this world appearance, Aladdin also has a very cute personality. He is insanely cheerful and kind, which makes people instantly love him. Additionally, he is an outgoing person and loves going out on long journeys to try out new things and to meet new people.

As the cherry on top, he is wise and clever beyond his years. What’s more to ask?

5. Momiji Sohma 

From: Fruit Basket

anime boys

Momiji may not be the anime boys main character in the Fruit Basket, but he recurs enough to get noticed. Plus, his looks make him stand out from the rest!

Momiji is half-Japanese and half-German, from his father and mother’s side respectively.

At the start of the series, he is portrayed as a very cute short boy with wavy blonde hair and messy bangs that
perfectly fit his face. He also has a pair of round light-brown gold (ish) eyes. Once he transitioned to sophomore year, his appearance also matured.

From a cute short boy, he transformed into a dashing and tall man, to the point that his peers weren’t able to recognise him at first.

Even with the growth spurt and manlier appearance, Momiji is the same bubbly, cheerful, and fun-loving boy everyone knows. He remains to be extremely affectionate, caring, and helpful to everyone, especially to his closest friends.

4. Tadase Hotori

From: Shugo Chara

anime boys

Tadase is one of the main characters of the anime and a very cute anime boys entry. He is the leader of the Guardians, known as the “King’s Chair”. He is very ambitious, and aims to be the king of his small world.

He is characterised by his short blond hair with a thin ahog, and on the side of his face is a single strand of hair that protrudes a little. He is graced with a pair of big, red-velvet, and almost mahogany-like eyes.

Due to these very obvious attractive features, a lot of people line up to confess their feelings for him.

He is not your typical cut anime boy, however, because his personality is not always pleasing. On the outside, he is your usual cute, timid, nice, and caring anime boy.

Even when multiple girls line up for him, he doesn’t gloat about it and tries his best to reject them kindly. On the opposite end of the spectrum, he is also a tyrannical maniac who wants to be the king of the world, at all costs.  

Indeed, Tadase is not just a cute boy, but his life and personality are very intriguing, as well. Watch Shugo Chara to know more about him!

3. Ciel Phantomhive

From: Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)

anime boys

Ciel is not one of your ordinary cute anime boys with a very light and lovely appearance. In fact, he is the opposite of this, yet he is still part of our cute list.

Earl Ciel Phantomhive is the head of the Phantomhive house, and he is often with Sebastian Michaelis, his demon butler.

He is an extremely short teenager, with graying blue-black hair and profound peacock-blue eyes. He often wears an extensive and lavish wardrobe to exude his noble standing.

His face is adorned with a black eye-patch made of gauze with a single cord over his right eye.

While all of these characteristics may make him seem like a distasteful boy, he is actually very sensitive and caring for the ones he loves the most.

He gives his best effort to protect and help them, and that may be the cutest and heart warming things of all.

2. Lag Seeing

From: Letter Bee or Tegami Bachi

anime boys

Lag Seeing is the epitome of cute anime boys. There is no mistake that he is one of the cutest anime boys out there. He is the main protagonist and is a Letter Bee.

Lag is a fairly short boy, with ghost white hair, and a single purple eye. His other eye, on the other hand, contains a piece of red Spirit Amber containing a Spirit Insect.

He often wears his ghost white hair over the eye as a makeshift eye-patch. Lag does not only have an endearing physical appearance, but he is also an amiable, soft, and kind character, which makes him more perfect.

He makes sure that he gets to help people, as much as he can, because he cares deeply about them. What he values most in life are the friendships and bonds he has forged throughout the years.

We are now down the list to the cutest anime boys of all time, and it’s no doubt that Honey wins the spot!

Mitsukuni Haninozuka is popularly known as Honey/Hunny/Hani. True to his nickname, he is truly sweet, child-like, and cute. It is so entertaining to watch him indulge in his favourite sweets constantly and witness his perpetual optimism.

On top of all these cuteness, he also always has his stuffed bunny named Usa-chan in hand, since it was personally made for him by his late grandmother.

Honey is extremely short (actual height is 148cm or 4’10”) with a babyish face. He has short honey-blond hair and also honey-gold coloured eyes! While he may seem slow and dimwitted due to his childishness, Honey is actually extremely smart and clever.

He also has a knack in predicting what a person is feeling or when a person has feelings for another.
