List Rules Vote up the best boy of 2018.

Across genres, there have been plenty of amazing new male anime characters in 2018, but who are the ones that truly stand out? Which characters will stand the test of time and enter the annals of anime history when the year is over?

Which characters qualify as the best male anime characters of 2018 depends on your personal preference. If you like sweet, soft boys who love helping people, you probably have a major soft spot for Sora Kashiwagi of How To Keep A Mummy. If you liked your anime guys hardened but still capable of genuine emotion, you might be fond of Ash Lynx from Banana Fish. If you 'd rather watch someone who can handily defeat his enemies and never gives up on his singular goal, Goblin Slayer might be the character who stays with you. 

Who is the true anime best boy of 2018? Vote to let the world know who you choose.
