This spring, we got some very good anime airing every week and leaving us with something to watch all the time. We also got introduced to some of the most iconic anime male leads of all time.
From action isekai to rom-com, these phenomenal characters belong to various genres. Here is our take on the Top 10 Anime Male Lead of Spring 2023.
10. Aquamarine Hoshino
The anime male lead of Hoshi No Ko is Aquamarine Hoshino, the son of rising icon Ai and twin brother to Ruby. He has faced quite a significant character development. He is literally not the same person as at the beginning of the series.
He was a doctor and a fan of patient Ai in his previous life when he was killed by a stalker of Ai. He later reincarnated as Ai’s child. Unfortunately, once again, he was stripped of his happiness when his mother also got killed by the same stalker.
The tragedy changed him into becoming more cold and calculated, leading him down the dark paths to avenge his mother. But he genuinely cares about the people around him, though he might take some extreme steps to protect them.
9. Guel Jeturk
Guel Jeturk is one of the characters in Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch From Mercury. The character has gone through major character developments throughout the series, making him stand out from others.
Initially, he had a quick temperament and had a very rough temperament. He was described as arrogant, insulting, and a narcissistic bully.
It was after he stopped receiving funds from Vim and assumed the identity of Bob that he became very sensitive to others’ feelings. His selfishness is replaced by a willingness to help in later episodes.
8. Muichiro Tokito
Muichiro Tokito, the anime male lead from Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc, is one of the deepest characters. His character development has been the highlight of the series.
Muichiro is the most powerful mist, Hashira. From the very first time he appeared on screen and was introduced to the protagonist Tanjiro, we got an integral insight into his personality.
Unlike all the other Hashiras, he has a reserved and withdrawn demeanor. He also has a self-centered and apathetic nature. He also suffers from PTSD resulting in angry outbursts and irritability. But we also got to see his respect and compassion for those around him.
7. Senku Ishigami
Senku Ishigami is the anime male lead in the series Dr Stone. He is a straightforward, confident, and logical person. But his overconfidence does not cloud his judgment. He is often misinterpreted as arrogant.
But even though he belittles everyone around him who is less knowledgeable, he has a caring and genuine personality. His charisma makes others gather around him and look up to him. He is determined and has a strong sense of justice.
6. Tanjiro Kamado
Kamado is one of the anime’s main leads in Demon Slayer who is one of the Demon Slayers in the Demon Slayer Corps. He has joined the Corps to find a remedy to turn his interest back into a human and avenge her by killing demons to prevent others from suffering the same fate.
Tanjiro has been described by others as a kind and compassionate person with gentle eyes. He has a great deal of determination and would do anything to achieve his goals.
He is very protective of his loved ones and isn’t afraid of being direct and honest. He has been one of the most beloved anime male leads this spring, and we can’t deny it.
5. Ganta Nakami
Ganta Nakami, the anime male lead of Insomniacs After School, has been collecting the hearts of fans ever since the series’ first broadcast. He is one of the most charming anime male leads and is very beloved by the fans.
Ganta suffers from insomnia, which often causes him to be grumpy at school. He is unmotivated because of it and likes to keep to himself most of the time. But through his relationship with Nakami and Ukegawa, we saw how genuine and kind he is towards his loved ones.
4. Shima Sosuke
Shima Sosuke is the anime male lead of the series Skip And Loafers. The series immediately claimed the top spot in our spring 2023 anime list.
Sosuke is a smart and good-looking person who is nice to everyone. He is kind and close to everyone around him.
But he has got a somewhat elusive side. He can be very shy from time to time and doesn’t show his true feelings.
His genuine compassion was evident in the way he was drawn to Mitsumi’s hard-working personality. This heartwarming character is one of our most beloved anime male leads.
3. Yamada Akito
Yamada Akito is the anime male lead in the series My Love Story With Yamada Kun At Lv999. The series is bringing into the spotlight the lives of autistic individuals in light of Autism Awareness Month in April. Yamada is a 19-year-old autistic-coded pro gamer.
Yamada is reserved and withdrawn, which is often misinterpreted as rudeness or coldness by people around him. He has a hard time expressing himself and often tends to keep to himself.
But Yamada is one of the most selfless and kind characters. He goes out of his way to help others, and it is this trait that draws Akane toward him. Yamada is a very special character with many admirable qualities.
Gabimaru is the anime male lead of Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku. He was Iwagakire’s most infamous shinobi Assassin of the alias, Gabimaru the Hollow, until he was betrayed by the village for wanting to settle down with his wife and abandon his role as murderer.
Just like his reputation, Gabimaru is calm and apathetic even in the most dangerous situations. He is straightforward and has his eyes on his goals that he would do anything to achieve. In contrast to this, he acts differently when he is with his wife.
In front of Yui, Gabimaru acts nervous and embarrassed, always trying to act not so stoic-like. Even though he might be obnoxious from time to time, Gabimaru is a very genuine person who is also a terrible liar.
1. Ichikawa Kyoutarou
Ichigawa Kyoutarou is the anime male lead of the hit series Dangers In My Heart. He is an unpopular teenager who is a fan of true crimes and has delusions of becoming a murderer despite his empathetic personality.
He is a bitter social outcast who likes to imagine violent fantasies involving the popular students of his school. He freezes in social situations, dislikes people who aren’t considerate of others, and who bully or objectify others.
However, the series does a great job of developing his character and genuinely expressing it, which immediately won all our hearts.
