Vote up the best seinen MCs.

Seinen anime is marketed towards men between the ages of 18 and 40, but it can be enjoyed by people of all ages and genders - with the caveat that some of the content is too mature for young audiences. Because it's marketed to adults, the storylines and characters tend to be complex. That's why seinen features some of the best protagonists in anime

You've probably heard of many of these compelling seinen main characters - few anime fans are unfamiliar with Saitama from One-Punch Man or Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul. But you may not know Caiman from Dorohedoro or Phosphophyllite from Land of the Lustrous. Whether they're underrated or popular for a reason, these characters are among the very best.
