There are anime characters that wear ear piercings you may not have noticed during an anime series.

The ear piercing could indicate a stereotype that they have a rebellious streak. But the characters could be kind and friendly to others regardless.

Depending on what the series may be, ear piercings differ depending on the character.

Here’s some anime series that has characters with ear piercings worth knowing about!

Kawaki isn’t nice to people when you first meet him in Boruto, however he begins to open up a bit once he meets Naruto and Boruto.

Kawaki is a good fighter and you could normally see him fighting against Boruto as they’re like brothers / rivals to each other.

He usually fights close-range combat and doesn’t know many attacks but is under training. Kawaki has ear piercings and he dresses like he is the bad boy of the anime which he is technically.

He’s friendly towards Boruto’s young sister, Himawari.

When the audience first meets Riku in Yashahime, he manipulates people or tries to get others to do his things for him.

Riku’s age is unknown but he is older than one would guess as he was around Inuyasha and Kagome’s time. Riku is trying to get the pearls but we aren’t sure yet on what he wants to do with those or what he wants to gain.
