Anime is full of attractive characters, yet sometimes they are not as flashy as others. Sometimes, being simple is enough to charm people. Some anime characters may not stand out as much as the other characters in their respective series, but sometimes, just being simple is best.

For their very first poll for 2017, Charapedia has asked 10,000 people (40.6% male, 59.6% female) to vote for the simple or plain anime characters that they think is the most charming or attractive. A total of 29 characters were included in the poll, however, they only named the Top 15, and they are:

15 – Yoru Nagatsuki (Tsukiuta. The Animation)

14 – Hinata Hyuuga (Naruto)

13 – Ranpo Edogawa (Bungou Stray Dogs)

12 – Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama (Mob Psycho 100)

11 – Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)

10 – Manami Tamura (OreImo)

9 – Tanaka (Tanaka-kun is Always Listless)

8 – Tadashi Yamaguchi (Haikyuu!!)

7 – Akari Akaza (Yuru Yuri)

6 – Kiminobu Kogure (Slam Dunk)

5 – Sagaru Yamazaki (Gintama)

4 – Chikara Ennoshita (Haikyuu!!)

3 – Yuki Nagato (Haruhi series)

2 – Kuroko Tetsuya (Kuroko’s Basketball)

1 – Shinpachi Shimura (Gintama)

Let’s face it, compared with everyone else in Gintama, Shinpachi is pretty plain, but the Yorozuya need their straight man, and he’s gotten plenty of witty comebacks with almost all of the anime’s wacky characters, and that may be why he’s #1 in this list.

As for #3, This may be the “normal” Nagato from the Disappearance movie and TV anime they are talking about… you know, the one who isn’t an alien? And like all the others, she’s pretty plain as well.
