Written by Theo J Ellis

When you watch an Anime it’s always good to find a character you can relate to.

When you can relate, the Anime becomes more enjoyable.

Not only that, it makes it easier for you to make a connection with the show you’re watching. Which makes you more emotionally involved.

In this example, as an introvert, Introverted Anime characters will be easier to relate to than extroverts.

Or even more interesting in some ways. Sometimes.

Let’s get to it.


The Best Introverted Anime Boys:


1. Piccolo (Dragon Ball Z)

Everybody knows his face. Piccolo is a main character from the most popular series – Dragon Ball Z.

He’s one to keep his distance and observe from a far. Preferring to have his own space a lot of the time instead of being around a bunch of people all the time.

He’s one of the most low key intelligent and practical characters in DBZ.


2. Byakuya Kuchiki (Bleach)

One of the most powerful Soul Reapers from Bleach.

Byakuya is always cool, calm and collected. Never losing his cool. And is usually found by himself doing whatever it is he needs to do.

Because of his independent nature, he can be stubborn. Making it unlikely for him to ask for help.

That being said, he’s the type of Introvert who keeps a small circle of friends. Instead of too many friends.


3. Alphonse Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)

From the famous show – Full Metal Alchemist.

Alphonse is the younger brother of Edward Elric. Who’s the complete opposite.

Alphonse is empathetic, understanding, usually calm and thoughtful. And usually talks when he has something relevant to say, as opposed to just talking for the sake of it.


4. Sesshomaru (Inuyasha)


The older brother of Inuyasha, Sesshomaru is the quiet type. Never the type to waste his words, and few people are able to get close enough to him.

But for those who do, he’s more caring towards them than you’d expect. Since Sesshomaru is the type to put up barriers, rarely showing his caring side.


5. Khamsin (Shakugan No Shana)

Shakugan No Shana is the Anime Khamsin is featured in.

He’s thoughtful, never talks without thinking it through first. Chooses to keep a distance over getting too close. But really appreciates any relationships with people he gets close to.

A man of few words but is more empathetic than a lot of comparable characters.


6. Ryner Lute (The Legend Of Legendary Heroes)

Ryner appears to be extroverted at times, but in truth he’s a great communicator. Which deceives you into believing he’s not an Introvert.

He loves to clown around a lot, sleep, nap, and is one of the most laid back Anime characters out there.


7. Gajeel Redfox (Fairy Tail)


One of the three first generation Dragon Slayers from Fairy Tail.

Gajeel is the type to chill by himself, kick back and relax. And loves to fight because of his upbringing and life experiences.

He’s the type of person who finds it hard to get to close to others, making it just as hard for others to warm to his personality.

A tough nut to crack just like his steel armor, which makes his personality and abilities ironic.


8. Zelgadis Graywords (Slayers)

From the old school series – Slayers!

Zelgadis is a logical thinker, laid back and serious a lot of the time.

He prefers to get things done and take action, as opposed to having fun and spending time on chit chat. But when it’s time for fun he doesn’t take it for granted!

9. Kokonotsu Shikada (Dagashi Kashi)


Kokonotsu is one of the lead character from 2016’s Dagashi Kashi Anime.

He’s a little awkward, laid back, sharp and wimpy. It’s this contrast of his personality that makes the anime a little wild(because of the other female protagonist).


10. Nozaki Umetarou (Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun)

anime boy

From the comedy series – Nozaki Kun. He’s a mangaka and spends a lot of his time creating manga.

Nozaki is so laid back you wouldn’t believe it. And so relaxed and absent minded. To the point of irritating Chiyo Sakura who’s fallen for Nozaki.

He adds a surprising amount of humor to the anime given his personality.

11. Yukiteru Amano (Mirai Nikki)

Socially awkward, shy, nervous. Sometimes lacking in confidence.

These words describe Yuki Amano from Anime series – Future Diary.

In some ways he’s the most introverted character on this list. His character development throughout the series is one of the most surprising as well.

12. Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto)

sasuke uchiha kid

Sasuke Uchiha, just like his brother Itachi Uchiha is an introvert. Internalizing his experiences and rarely ever sharing it with anyone else.

Not even Naruto.

Sasuke’s backstory is savage and a life of a lonely kid who no one paid any attention to. Not even his own father.

That’s why Sasuke makes the effort to gain his father’s praise to get noticed.

In a typical introverted fashion, he keeps his distance and weighs people up. And it takes time to make Sasuke open up.

13. Naofumi Iwatani (Shield Hero)

naofumi iwatani shield

Naofumi Iwatani is the main star of the show in Shield Hero. And before long he’s the victim, branded as a criminal for a false rape allegation.

He was introverted already (he’s an Otaku before the main story), but living life having to watch over his shoulders… And being judged as guilty before being proven innocent makes Naofumi “close off” his emotions.

He doesn’t trust no one, hat’s why the relationship with Raphtalia, another main character makes this anime so special.

They fit like a glove.


14. Hachiman Hikigaya (Oregairu)

hachiman hikigaya

Hachiman Hikigaya is a clear introvert. The type who doesn’t wanna be bothered unnecessarily. And would rather be left alone if it can be helped.

It’s not that he’s unable to socialize, it’s just he wants to socialize and make friends with genuine people he can trust.

He has no interest in fake relationships or putting on a fake smile to make the peace.

Hachiman is one of the greatest Introverts I’ve come across in the anime industry.
