I have always liked the way characters are designed in anime, because they were very different from your “typical” cartoons. Of course today, we see big eyes and other anime influences in many cartoons (e.g. Avatar: The Last Airbender) and animated movies from Disney and Pixar (e.g. Frozen). The five characters that are listed below are my favorite character designs I’ve encountered so far while watching anime. I didn’t set any specific criteria for myself so some characters made the list simply because of their attire.
