It takes a wide range of specialized skills to get halfway good at being a sniper, but these incredible anime characters manage to pull it off. With keen eyesight, incredible strategic prowess, and the ability not to balk under pressure, these characters are some of the most skilled around.
Who are some of the best anime snipers? Sword Art Online II's Sinon, who does most of her sniping in a virtual world, is a commonly cited example. There's also Saito from Ghost in the Shell SAC, whose prosthetic eye lets him sync his shots with satellite images.
Which sniper would you hire to do your hypothetical dirty work?
Yoko Littner serves as both an advisor and sniper for Team Dai-Gurren. She has plenty of impressive conquests, including taking out two Gunmen on her own and suffering no injuries in the process.
Sinon's sniping skills might be restricted to the world of Gun Gale Online, but that doesn't make them any less real. She started playing Gun Gale Online to deal with real-world trauma and has become one of the games' top players.
Despite her typical appearance as a clumsy maid, Mey-Rin is a successful sniper. Her skills are actually improved by her bad eyesight - she's far-sighted, not near-sighted, which means that what's up close is blurry but what's far away is crystal clear.
