When it comes to business or politics, some fantasy anime characters have an excellent head on their shoulders. Welcom to the planet.
Adventure, magic, and mystery are just some of the things you may expect from a fantasy anime series.

It is possible that some of these personalities would be completely at home in the modern world. No matter if they wanted to be productive members of society or outlaws, these fantasy characters would gladly leave their enchanted abodes for the concrete realities of the modern world.
