Sometimes though there’s multiple main characters. As much as 3, 4, or in rare cases 5.
This time around let’s focus on
Let’s get into it.
anime with groups of 4:
1. Black Lagoon
- Revy Rebecca.
Literally the 4 main characters of this action series.
The plot is about smuggling (weapons, etc). Dutch is the leader of the lagoon company.
The chemistry between these 4 characters is always a good laugh and there’s plenty to get out of it. Entertainment wise.
All 4 characters aren’t always side by side, but giving they work within the same company it’s a lot of the time as they travel around the world. Doing “dirty” business.
It’s made by Madhouse, and there’s plenty of violence. Comparable to something like Monster in a way.
Character designs are quality.
2. Seitokai Yakuindomo
This is the kind of
The main characters are:
- Shino Amakusa.
- Shichijou Aria.
- Suzu Hagimura.
2 of them are on the sane side of things, while the other 2 are snarky, sarcastic, purposely take things out of context, and have a dirty mind.
They’re constantly making lewd jokes and it only gets more extreme with each season it seems.
Underrated slice of life series without a doubt. Deserves more appreciation (especially with the character chemistry).
In this classic Shounen/fantasy series you have:
- Lina Inverse.
- Gourry Gabriev.
- Ameila Wil Tesla Seyruun.
- Zelgadis Greywords.
They’re personally one of the best groups of 4 in

It’s hard to see chemistry like THIS these days (in groups of 4 in

The main cast is:
- Goddess Aqua.
- Kazuma Satou.
- Darkness Lalatina.
Probably one of the TOP
They’re memorable and reliant on each other in one way or another, especially as far as plot most of the time.
Kazuma in particular is a well written MC and is the pillar of “gender equality” in the

- Gray Fullbuster.
Just like Konosuba, these 4
Even though not all characters in FT are the most relevant, they are memorable besides the main cast. Which is its strong point.
Shakugan No Shana
That said, the characters are:
- Yuji Sakai.
- Margery Daw.
- Wilhelmina Carmel.
Sometimes that changes depending on the season, the arc, and what’s happening. The teamwork between characters in this
It’s classic Shonen but with a female and male lead, and was made back in the mid 2000’s by J.C Staff.
The plot is about demons, humans, the flame haze that destroy demons, and their mission to protect the world’s balance.
Depending on how you feel, there are different characters you can pick out of
For me I’ll go with:
- Might Guy.
- Rock Lee.
- Neiji Hyuga.
Team Guy has one of the best groups of 4 in
You obviously have the main team 7 which is
Either way, worthy characters when all is said and done.
Hanayamata is an

The main characters:
- Hana Fountainstand.
- Naru Sekiya.
- Tami Nishimikado.
- Yaya Sasame.
A mixture of introverts, extroverts, easy going and “Senpai” type characters.
You can think of the

The main cast:
- Yui Hirasawa.
- Tsumugi Kotobuki.
- Mio Akiyama.
- Ritsu Tainaka.
The chemistry between these characters is legendary in the slice of life/comedy community. Later there are 5 characters, but the 4 start it off.
Drinking tea, eating biscuits and cake, playing music together, creating their own band, and enjoying themselves.
That’s the plot basically.
10. Jujutsu Kaisen
JJK is a solid Shonen series for a lot of reasons. One of them is the solid writing of female and male characters.
The other reason is the chemistry between its 4 main characters, and how they interact and work together.
The main cast is:
- Gojo Satoru.
- Nobara Kugisaki.
- Yuji Itadori.
- Megumi Fushigoro.
Megumi’s the introvert, the rest are energetic and a bit much for Megumi at times. But it makes for good comedy.
Easily o e of the best groups of 4 in
11. How To Raise A Boring Girlfriend
Saekano, or How To Raise A Boring Girlfriend is a Harem/Ecchi series you wouldn’t expect to be so good.
It’s a stand out series in the genre.
The main character Tomoya is trying to build a dating sim game, and 3 other girls (main characters) help him out.
Those characters are:
- Tomoya Aki.
- Utaha Kasumigaoka.
- Eriri Spencer.
- Megumi Kato.
Each of the girls is a mix of authors, writers, Utaha being a best selling author. And Megumi being an average girl with no current creative passion or talents.
She’s the girl the show is built around in a subtle way which slowly reveals itself.
12. Redo Of Healer
This one is more of a sarcastic joke but the shoe fits anyway.
Aside from the insanity of this series and how one of the characters makes up the party of 4, their relevance to the story is undeniable.
They’re also a set of characters that would make the
Those characters are:
- Eve Reese.
It’s a shame the
