2. Juuzou Suzuya – Tokyo Ghoul

Known as a problem child, Juuzou Suzuya is a very intelligent Ghoul investigator who shows the utmost devotion to the person who had kept him as an executioner.

Hinata’s determination can be seen in his green eyes when he always appears to the court as early as possible when everyone is sleeping. He knew that strenuous hard work was necessary in order to have an advantage over his tall competitors.

4. Kuroko – Kuroko no Basuke

The most adorable basketball player in Kuroko no Basuke has definitely got to be its titular protagonist, Kuroko.

One of Near’s most iconic moments is when he had completely beat Light at his own game and showed no emotions or fear of being killed in retaliation.

His astoundingly brave demeanor is one of the most surprising traits that can be seen in a child this young and sweet.

6. Yato – Noragami

Living as a God seems to be a great privilege for Yato. Especially because he is extremely handsome and looks as if he is still in his twenties.

In fact, he created a massive multiverse tournament for the sole purpose of deciding which universe gets to avoid erasure.

8. Lavi – D.Gray-man Hallow

With his ginger red hair, Lavi has taken his place as one of the hottest cute anime boys on this list.

Kise is best remembered by his awesome battle against the ace of the Generation of Miracles aka Aomine Daiki. His performance against Aomine was so great that he came extremely close to winning the entire match.

The most popular anime character of all time is none other than Goku from Dragon Ball.
