List Rules Vote up the best brother figures in anime.

For all the brothers out there, we're ranking the best brother characters in anime. Who are your favorite anime brothers of all time? That's not an easy question to answer, considering that the theme of brotherly love (or hate) is very commonplace in anime. Your favorite brothers in anime don't have to get along to be on this poll. Take Sasuke and Itachi Uchiha for example, who have an intensely hateful relationship for most of the Naruto series. On the other end of the spectrum you have brothers like Edward and Alphonse Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, whose love for each other essentially drives the story forward the entire time.

Let us know who your favorite anime brothers are by voting up your top choices below. Check out some of our other anime character lists, like the best elderly anime characters, and the greatest fat anime characters.
