We all have Anime characters we share similar traits and personalities with.
Whether it’s the way a character thinks about life. Their hobbies, interests and passions. How easily they get stressed out or the mindset an anime character has.
There’s something that draws us in because it reflects who we are as fans of Anime.
I’m no different. And there are plenty of characters I love for that reason.
I thought I’d do a post on similar characters with personalities like my own. To help you all get to know me better.
Let’s get to it.
11 Anime Characters I Share Similar Personalities With:
1. Hikari Takanashi
Haven’t watched the 2017 series yet – Interviews With Monster Girls?
Hikari Takanashi is one of the few main characters from the show.
What makes me similar to Hikari Takanashi is my sarcastic personality. There’s not many days I go without throwing in a little sarcasm.
Sometimes it’s needed to lighten up a conversation.
And also my childish nature. I’m young at heart, free spirited and love to laugh and find humor in things.
I believe there’s always a funny side to life, and I don’t go a day without laughing. A day without laughing is a day wasted on being miserable and unhappy.
That’s how I see it. And that’s why I’m so similar to Hikari Takanashi.
I love her as a character.
Vegeta needs no introduction.
He’s one of the most famous anime characters on the planet. Even outside the world of DBZ and Anime.
Like Vegeta i have a rebellious nature and have never been one to follow rules.
Or to play by the made-up expectations in our society.
I believe there’s always a better way to do things, even if it’s unconventional. And far from “traditional”.
When it comes to taking action and putting in the work, I don’t need to be told.
I just get it done because that’s who I am.
And that’s what makes me similar to Vegeta in the way he acts and thinks.
Vegeta’s not one to follow the rules, and that’s the reason he’s gotten so far as a character. Because not only doesn’t he follow convention, but he doesn’t care about what others think of him
And that’s the power of having pride and confidence in yourself.
3. Byakuya Kuchiki
The 3rd character who shares similarities with me is Byakuya from Bleach.
Byakuya’s the kind of guy who’s always cool, calm and confident. Never breaking under pressure and always keeping a level head.
It’s rare you’ll ever see Byakuya act on impulse and get carried away by his emotions.
And I’m the same way. I jokingly say I’m the most cool, calm, collected person you’ll ever meet.
And being observational, curious and paying attention to my surroundings is natural for me. Just like Byakuya Kuchiki.
Also I don’t waste my words.
Meaning I tend to talk when it’s necessary and I’m far from the type to blabber on in a conversation (unless excited).
4. Kanna Makino
Kanna Makino’s one of the most easy going, chilled and laid back Anime characters out there.
And that’s what makes her so similar to myself.
I don’t take life too seriously and it takes a lot to bother me or stress me out. Because I’m so light hearted.
I’m able to overlook the negatives and look on the bright side of things. And because of that some people sometimes believe I don’t take things seriously.
That’s what makes me and Kanna Makino so similar.
Goku’s another character who needs no introduction. The image above is from DB Super.
So why Goku? Well he’s always looking out for everybody’s best interests. Even if they’re strangers.
And like Kanna Makino, Goku is the last guy to fall under pressure or crack under stressful situations. Because he’s so easy-going and laid back.
Though the biggest similarity I share with Goku is his massive appetite for food.
I love all kinds of food. Regardless of where it’s from or how it’s made.
My favorites are: Oriental food, desserts, noodles, Pasta and fish. I’m always eager to try new foods too (normally every week).
6. Erza Scarlet
Erza Scarlet is one of the main characters from the Fairy Tail series.
Like Erza I have a strong determination to succeed and I let nothing stand in the way of my goals. Taking charge of the situation and leading is not an issue for me.
I’m not one to stand for bullshit, let people trample all over me, or take advantage. Especially when it comes to people I care about.
Erza’s like this in many ways, which is proven in the first few episodes of Fairy Tail. And even throughout the entire Fairy Tail series.
That’s what I love about her. She’s one of characters I respect, admire and find myself inspired by the most (fan-service aside).
7. Kotomi Ichinose
“I must study lots of things, or I won’t become a great person.” – Kotomi Ichinose
Kotomi’s one of the main characters in Clannad, Season 1.
When she’s first introduced she’s seen indulging in books and studying hard. And she’s known to be one of the smartest students in the school.
I’m similar to Kotomi when it comes to learning, reading, studying and educating myself.
I have a hunger to learn and place a lot of value on learning new things. And building my knowledge.
Also I’m an introvert like Kotomi. That’s what makes my personality a little similar in comparison.
8. Allen Walker
Allen Walker is a protagonist in the Anime: D.Gray Man.
He’s kind at heart and always tries his best to do the right thing. But one of his main habits is trying to take on the whole world by himself.
Allen’s so independent he’d rather take burden upon himself, rather than ask for help. Even when those around him are willing to give a helping hand.
This is something I also struggled with. Not as much today. But It’s still easy for me to forget that I don’t need to do everything myself.
9. Sachiko Tanaka
Sachiko’s a manga artist from Anime: Denpa Kyoushi. Also known as The Ultimate Otaku Teacher.
Like Sachiko I’ve always been interested in creativity and self-expression. It’s just how my mind works. Creating and building things is the best feeling in the world.
That’s why I’m drawn to words like: innovation, creativity, different, unique, unconventional.
Activities that involve writing, ideas, strategy, creativity, expression and using my imagination are so easy for me to do.
Building things that weren’t there, and “thinking” things into existence is a lot of fun for me.
10. Kraft Lawrence
Kraft Lawrence is from the fantasy/historical series: Spice And Wolf.
He’s a traveling merchant who loves business, buying and selling products, and investing.
And more than that: Kraft Lawrence has an entrepreneurial spirit.
It’s this entrepreneurial spirit that connects Kraft Lawrence’s personality to my own.
Retail’s a good example of something I’ve always been drawn to. Buying and selling is what I love about Retail.
And I’ve always wanted to start and own businesses.
Kraft Lawrence is the only character I can think of who’s similar in this way. Except for Nabiki Tendo in the Anime: Ranma 1/2.

11. Homura Akemi
Homura Akemi is one of the five Magical Girls from anime: Madoka Magica.
From the outside looking in, Homura’s a cold, heartless, emotionless character with no concern for others. And it’s easy to misunderstand her.
It’s clear for anyone to see she’s an introvert, and trusts very few people other than herself.
But behind the barrier she puts up you come to find that’s not the case at all. Especially as far as being “cold” and “heartless”.
I’m perceived the same way. Though of course I’m not a cold person even in the slightest. But so many people misunderstand me that it’s unbelievable.
Even my own family.
And of course I’m an introvert who prefers to listen much more than I talk. Naturally observing things and people around me.
That’s what makes parts of my personality similar to Homura Akemi.
Everyone has different facets to who they are, and these anime characters represent mine best.
