From shows that are both popular and unpopular.
1. It’s You Guys Fault I’m Not Popular!
Watashi as it’s called in Japanese is a slice of life/comedy series.

My Hero Academia

The main character is Izuku Midoriya. A young school student who’s dream is to become a hero one day.
Izuku, even after some character development is anxious, nervous and awkward.
But one of his strongest introverted traits is his ability to think deep.
He’s not the most talented in the show, but because he tends to think deeper than everyone else, he’s able to overcome big hurdles.
Hurdles that look impossible from the outside in.
Izuku is one of the most intelligent introverted main characters on this list without a doubt.
4. Haganai: I Don’t Have Many Friends
Haganai is similar to Watashi because even though it’s a slice of life, it has deep elements to it.
One of the main characters is Kodaka Hasegawa. A student who along with Yozara forms a group: The Neighbors Club.
The clubs purpose is to help Kodaka and Yozara make new friends.

And doesn’t struggle too much when it comes to social conversations.
7. Gunslinger Girl
About 3 of the main characters in Gunslinger Girl are introverts. Including Henrietta, Angelica and Clyce.
Each of them loves to read and indulge in books. And aren’t the biggest conversationalists.
Parasyte focuses on the main character: Shinichi Izumi. A college student who after being attacked by a parasite, is forced to live with it in his body.
Shinichi makes massive changes through the
And is as laid back as a Koala bear. Literally.
9. Future Diary
Better known in Japan by: Mirai Nikki.
Future Diary is a psychological
One of the main characters is Yuki Amano. A nervous high school student who’s being stalked by an obsessive girl called Yuno Gasai.
Yuki Amano is kind hearted, fearful, and terrified of others socially. But this part of him changes by the end of the series.
That being said he’s still one of the most introverted
10. Kokoro Connect
Like Future Diary, Kokoro Connect is a psychological
3 of the main characters: Yui Kiriyama, Inaba Himeko and Taichi Yagashi are introverts.
With Yui Kiriyama and Inaba Himeko being the most introverted out of the 3.
You might not have heard of Kokoro Connect, but if you want something fresh in the school category its worth watching.
And is personally one of my favorite shows of all time.
Noir is least known
Kirika is the
Kirika only speaks when she feels it’s necessary.
Though when it comes to strategy and planning, she’s sharp, witty and has a scary level of intelligence for someone her age.

14. Rurouni Kenshin
Rurouni Kenshin, like The One Being sung, is an
The main character: Kenshin Himura has
Though unlike “some” Introverts, he has a way with words and has no problem socializing.
Kenshin’s one of my favorite male samurai characters because of his interesting characteristics.
There’s no doubt you’ve heard of this popular show, and i’d be surprised if you hadn’t.
At least 3 of the main characters: Sayaka Miki,
And each of their personalities is wildly different despite their introverted similarities.
16. Battle Game In 5 Seconds
Battle Game In 5 Seconds is a new
It’s a survival
The main character: Akira Shiroyanagi is a classic
