Anime is known for its cute characters, which may be why so many people are eager to watch the latest offerings from Japan. While there are tons of adorable female characters in anime, we’re going to focus on 15 of the cutest male anime characters. This list focuses on boys and men who are young and cute, not just adult characters.

Tamaki Suoh ( Ouran Highschool Host Club )
Tamaki Suoh is the son of a wealthy family and is the senior student of Ouran High School. He’s one of the main characters of the series, who also happens to be a member of the host club at school. Tamaki plays the role of president for each meeting held by the group, with his overbearing attitude often putting him at odds with Haruhi Fujioka (another major character). He’s also quite popular with girls in school despite his childish personality and appearance—to put it simply: you could say that Tamaki is your typical anime protagonist archetype.
Celty Sturluson ( Durarara!! )
Celty Sturluson is a Dullahan, a headless horseman with a black cloak and a scythe. She carries her head in her handbag and she can detach it at will. As she’s half-horse, Celty has supernatural powers such as flight, teleportation, super speed and strength. She’s also able to communicate with animals through telepathy (but only in Ireland).
Celty works as an underground motorcycle courier for Shinra Kishitani’s Night Raid gang and spends most of her time on the streets of Ikebukuro (a fictional town in Tokyo), where she lives under the bridge near Raira Academy – the high school attended by Mikado Ryugamine along with many other characters from Durarara!!

Subaru Sumeragi ( X/1999 )
Subaru is a character from X/1999. He is an important part of the story, and his role is to get it going. Despite this, he’s not a typical male protagonist; he doesn’t grow up, or become more mature or powerful as the series progresses. Instead, he’s just as cute and innocent at the end of the series as he was at the beginning (which makes sense considering that it’s only 15 episodes long).
Subaru’s cuteness comes from his personality traits: he has no bad intentions but still manages to be mischievous; despite being clumsy and somewhat dense, he’s smart enough to know when someone needs help; he cares deeply about his friends and family even though they might not always appreciate it (in fact they often don’t).
What really makes Subaru so adorable though isn’t just how lovable his personality makes him—it’s also how adorable his appearance can be! When you see those big bright eyes staring back at you while lounging around in bed with them dressed in their pajamas… well let’s just say that gets me every time!
