Glasses are the “windows of the windows to the spirit,” while eyes are the “windows to the world.” However, that’s just one use for glasses. Although it would be ludicrous to suggest that glasses have no other purpose than to correct the wearer’s eyesight, some people may argue that this is the case. We’re guessing that nine out of 10 anime fans would agree that glasses can boost or break a person’s coolness quotient, depending on the situation in which they’re worn.
It’s true that eyewear can occasionally be stylish in the real world. However, in the anime universe, glasses are the ultimate symbol of whatever it is you want them to be for: intelligence, self-assurance, flair, etc. A few of pop culture’s most recognizable figures are listed below, each of whom is capable of drawing out your best eyewear.
1. Keima Katsuragi From The World Only God Knows
When discussing works of the harem genre, the harem itself is the first thing that comes to mind. The harem protagonist and their defy-the-laws-of-physics tropes are the second things that springs to mind. Harem characters and the harem genre are tarnished by the prevalence of these cliches, which are more akin to forced fanservice.
There are many great harem protagonists, and Keima Katsuragi is one of them. Keima is a harem protagonist who deviates from the norm and does not follow the rules. He is arguably one of the most well-developed harem protagonists in the history of the anime medium.
2. Shinpachi Shimura From Gintama
Gintama has a devoted fan base, despite being widely regarded as one of the most underappreciated Shonen anime of all time. The comic components in the series are so pervasive that they take away from the overall tone of the mashup that the Shonen genre is a part of.
In contrast, Shinpachi serves as the series’ sobering reality check. Gintama’s core cast consists entirely of comedic supporting characters due to the unique nature of the show. Shinpachi is the lone sane member of this cast.
3. Tenya Iida From My Hero Academia
Responsibility seems to follow those anime characters that wear glasses in a strange way. These individuals are consistently depicted as the sanest in Shonen stories.
Compared to Shinpachi, whose job it is to keep an entire series in check, Tenya’s task may appear trivial. He is in charge of maintaining order in Class 1-A. Under the leadership of this class president, hallway races are out of the question.
4. Yukio Okimura From Blue Exorcist
Blue Exorcist features two primary protagonists, and Yukio Okimura is the show’s secondary protagonist. There’s no need to guess twice; he’s Rin’s younger twin brother and the designated babysitter. For as long as either of them can remember, Yukio has been the one to look out for his reckless big brother.
Yukio didn’t just put up with his annoying big brother because he loved him, he also became an exorcist at the tender age of seven in order to keep his elder, less useful sibling safe. What an example of brotherly love!
5. Hange Zoe From Attack On Titan
Hange hasn’t been very involved in the events of the first half of Attack on Titan. After the second half had begun, though, we began to notice her more and more, and soon she had become a fan favorite. Hange’s plans were crucial to the gang’s and humanity’s survival, and they will continue to be so.
6. Silvers Rayleigh From One Piece
Sometimes glasses in anime are just for show. They can exist merely for the sake of existing at other times. Yes, Rayleigh does use corrective lenses, but we both know that they are very inappropriate for him to do so. Even if Rayleigh were completely blind, he would be able to function normally. Reaching Rayleigh’s level of observational haki renders vision unnecessary.
7. Maes Hughes From Fullmetal Alchemist
Although glasses are typically a mark of intelligence and solemnity, Hughes’ pair represents much more. In addition to his intelligence and keen observational skills, Hughes was also a witty and entertaining individual. As the military’s fulcrum, he was also a surrogate uncle to the young Elric brothers. His passing was a very heartbreaking part of the show.
8. Uryu Ishida From Bleach
In Bleach, Ishida is one of the main characters, and the series first introduced Quincy. He is an individual who lives up to the reputation his glasses have earned him: he is a cool, collected thinker who prefers to be alone. He was always the team’s intellectual leader. Ichigo and the gang couldn’t have done whatever risky things they did without him.
9. Shiroe From Log Horizon
As the popularity of the isekai genre skyrocketed in the early part of the previous decade, a plethora of related anime titles began to appear. Ironically, Log Horizon was not only one of these forerunners but also one of the most original. The show deviates from the typical Isekai formula in its treatment of its protagonist. Shiroe is without peers among the Isekai protagonists.
10. Kabuto From Naruto
When he first came out, we wrote him off as nothing more than a lowly servant. Oh boy, were we ever wrong? Spies were Kabuto’s life throughout the majority of his life. His snake form served him well until his true potential emerged, and he became a dragon. The problem with Naruto is that it has so many well-written bad guys that even excellent ones like Kabuto get lost in the shuffle.
