List Rules Vote up the anime characters you most want to hang out with.

The "power of friendship" is one of the strongest forces in all of anime, reviving defeated heroes and heroines better than any superpower or magic spell. Thanks to the best friends below, your favorite characters have the strength to fight another titan or upgrade their automail. These are the anime characters you want to hang out with, the ones who bring color into your life, the ones who defend you when you're not around to defend yourself. They vibe with any supernatural companion you might have and they don't care if you're a flesh-eating ghoul, a self-proclaimed mad scientist, or the son of Satan. They've got your back, and their charisma and enthusiasm brings even the shyest out of their shell. Amidst all of the anime characters you hate, these best bros and girls remind you of all the good things in the world.
