Bishounen: 18 Most Handsome Male Anime/Manga Characters Ever

From the viewers’ point of view, anyone would qualify as good-looking.

We have an abundant supply of handsome anime/manga characters, meaning they must look like a real bishounen both from our perspective and the from the eyes of the characters of the series from which they were selected.

1. Kuchiki Byakuya – Bleach


It’s one of the strongest from Soul Society, captain of the 6th division and the current head of the Kuchiki Clan – Kuchiki Byakuya. He’s usually cool, and sometimes arrogant, but we don’t mind.

He is one of the most popular Bleach characters and the most popular captain for the female Shinigami of Soul Society after being voted “number 1 captain we desire to release a photo book for” according to a poll by the Shinigami Women’s Association.

2. Azuma Yunoki – La Corda d’Oro


Azuma Yunoki is a talented third year high school student majoring in flute at the Seiso Academy.

He learned the piano first but after showing astounding progress and talent, he was forced to play the flute instead so as not to outshine his elder brothers.

Of course, he is popular with the girls, but only Kahoko knows of his “dark” personality he wouldn’t show to other people. Naturally, this mean side of him makes him more attractive than the other guys.

3. Mabuchi Kou – Ao Haru Ride


Mabuchi Kou was initially gentle and sweet and cute during their middle school years but after his sudden disappearance he became cold, rude and sarcastic, but oh well more manly.

Of course we were really annoyed by how he was treating Futaba then, but I guess you can also consider it one of his charms – a caring, handsome tsundere always gets us!

4. Satsuki Shishio – Hirunaka no Ryuusei


Satsuki Shishio is the most handsome high school teacher, ever. He is a true gentleman, he dresses well and he is so damn good-looking.

5. Kazehaya Shouta – Kimi ni Todoke

Being both good-looking and sociable, Kazehaya Shouta attracts both girls and boys, with him at the center of attention all the time.

Most interesting about Kazehaya is his selfishness, one which he admitted to both Sawako and Ryu, which is only mostly applicable to Sawako as Kazehaya easily gets jealous and wants to keep Sawako for himself.

6. Mashima Taichi – Chihayafuru

This is the smart, talented and of course handsome president of the Mizusawa Karuta Club, Mashima Taichi of Chihayafuru.

Every single soul would come to love Taichi’s good looks, patience, dedication and most importantly his unequaled love and concern for Chihaya.

7. Kuranosuke Koibuchi – Kuragehime/Princess Jellyfish

The good-looking guy from a political family who is interested in beauty and fashion. Kuranosuke Koibuchi is appealing to both men and women whether he cross-dresses or not.

He is usually confident in whatever he does and is the kind of person who doesn’t care what people would think or speak of him.
