It’s not a good impression these characters of 2020 have made on anime lovers…
As a strong term, “hate” may not be enough to express one’s feelings towards these anime characters, who have set a precedent for the new year in 2020. For the most part, 2020 has been an excellent year for a wide variety of anime, including manhwa adaptation and remakes of well-known series.
There is no shortage of characters to hate this year, whether they be series villains, obnoxious isekai protagonists, or characters whom one simply cannot stand because they are so irritating. These are a few of the most popular characters of the year, as voted on by fans.
A fandom’s hatred of an anime character can be difficult to remove over time. However, 2020 has provided viewers with a wide range of anime and characters to dislike with each new season’s launch.
Some characters are despised by the whole fandom, while others may just be despised by a small subset of the internet’s population. In any event, some of these characters are despised and despised for good cause, while others are plain obnoxious and unbearable to watch for certain fans to begin with.
1. Hana Uzaki (Uzaki-chan Wants To Hang Out!)
A character recognized by her last name, Uzaki, Hana’s function as a character is to frustrate Shinichi, but it is assumed she was not meant to annoy anime viewers.
For some admirers, Uzaki has passed the narrow line between irritation and hatred rather early, being totally loathed for being too troublesome and plain obnoxious. Some fans may have found her personality adorable.
2. Glenn Litbeit (Monster Girl Doctor)
Because he is the protagonist of a typical harem anime, but with a twist; every lady who is in love with him is an actual monster girl. Glenn Litbeit is loathed for this simple reason.
Even if there aren’t many things about him that stick out, he doesn’t have any that are really awful. While the anime has received a lukewarm reaction, it appears that some viewers’ dislike for Glenn has spread.
3. Gabriel Miller (Sword Art Online: Alicization)
The major adversary of Sword Art Online: Alicization’s second half is Gabriel Miller. Reki Kawahara is as feared as Sugou Nobuyuki, a.k.a. Oberon, the guy who terrorized Asuna in the Fairy Dancer arc, as far as villains go in the franchise.
He also abused Sinon in Gun Gale Online and killed his childhood buddy to witness her “soul” depart her body, as if being evil was not enough of a motivation for him.
4. Jegal Taek (God Of High School)
When Jegal Taek, a manhwa character from God of High School, made his debut in anime, he was immediately disliked by new admirers. As demonstrated by his charyeok Greed attack on Jeon Jugok and the brutal beating of Lee Hyangdan for his own sadistic amusement, Jegal Taek’s haughty and aggressive nature was on full display.
5. Shingo Ichinomiya (The 8th Son? Are You Kidding Me?)
There are many tropes and grating protagonists in the isekai genre, and Shingo Ichinomiya is no exception to this rule. “Stale” and “irritating” may be more appropriate terms for this resurrected boy.
A harem, oblivious personality, and tremendous power are all characteristics shared by Shingo, like other isekai protagonists. For a hate-worthy protagonist, this is the ideal combination of ingredients.
6. Mary Hunt (My Next Life As A Villainess: All Routes Lead To Doom!)
Spring 2020’s hit anime, My Next Life As A Villain: All Routes Lead To Doom, served as an introduction to “otome isekai” for many fans.
In spite of the good-hearted men and women in Catarina’s harem, there is one flaw in Mary’s character that is painfully obvious: fixation.
Mary’s yandere tendencies have led many fans to dislike her as a character following the time leap because of her unhealthy attitude toward Catarina.
7. Kana Hoshisato (Hatena☆Illusion)
When it came to the Winter 2020 anime season, Hatena-Illusion was a little-noticed obscurity.
was largely unseen in the Winter 2020 anime season. On May 2, 2016, the series’ creator, Tomohiro Matsu, passed away. He never got to see the series come to life.
Kana Hoshisato, on the other hand, is the character he came up with. The anime adaptation of Kana was panned by fans because she was given a “annoying” makeover and a tsundere mentality.
8. Claire Aoki (Gleipnir)
Anime series Gleipnir is a unique experience, to say the very least. When Claire Aoki is thrown into the equation, things get more complicated. Claire, like Mary Hunt from My Next Life As A Villain: All Routes Lead To Doom, takes the definition of yandere and increases it by a factor of x50.
Some fans found Claire’s arrogant smile appealing, but there was another group who found her raunchy depiction in the anime to be a turn-off.
9. Daisuke Kanbe (The Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED)
Daisuke Kanbe is a wealthy individual who refuses to take responsibility for his actions, and no one likes him.
Daisuke, on the other hand, doesn’t care about justice at all and prefers to use money to solve all of his problems.
It’s something he does with every case he accepts, even going as far as smashing his automobile in order to solve one.
10. Tsukasa Yugi (Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun)
Tsukasa, Hanako’s younger twin brother, has a love-hate relationship with fans of Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun. There are some admirers who fall in love with him because of his wicked and mischievous behaviors, while others despise him because of the agony he causes the protagonists.
Tsukasa is frequently the target of fan rage because of his penchant for abusing Hanako.
11. Akito Sohma (Fruits Basket)
Throughout the original Fruits Basket series, Akito was a villain, but the remake shows just how corrupt he is as a character.
Although Akito was blamed for the Sohma’s anguish during the original series, the beach episode allowed fans to glimpse Akito’s true state.
Tohru’s cheek was scraped so hard by Akito that it bled, while Momiji was punched in the face.
12. Haru Nonoka (Sing “Yesterday” For Me)
When Sing “Yesterday” For Me began, people were praising Rikuo and Shinako’s relationship. A crush on Shinako that Rikou had since he was a college student made it impossible to not be excited for their relationship to develop. While everything was going on, Rikuo and Shinako split up in the final episode of the series, and he instantly went to Haru and said, “I love you.”
Most viewers were baffled by the show’s hurried conclusion, given that they had expected 18 episodes, and they turned their animosity toward Haru, who chased Rikou and had no reason to like him other than the fact that she picked up something he dropped five years earlier.
13. Kyubey (Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka☆Magica Side Story)
There is no need to explain why anime fans all over the world despise this charming but nasty cat-like monster called Kyuubey. Young girls are made to transform into magical girls and combat wishes as an Incubator, a species that no matter how many times you kill it, it will return to life.
Kyubey is no different in Magia Record: Puella Magi MadokaMagica Side Story, however Kyubey plays a supporting role as the characters are all new.
14. Kazuya Kinoshita (Rent-A-Girlfriend)
A harem anime’s monotonous main character isn’t the only one who’s indecisive: Kazuya Kinoshita. The breakup with Mami prompts him to hire another woman, Chizuru. Although he’s been a fan favorite since the beginning of the anime, he’s now been dubbed the worst male character of 2020.
No wonder Kazuya’s supporters aren’t happy with him, seeing as how he veers between the girlfriend who dumped him for fun and the phony girlfriend who truly seems to care about him.
15. Rachel (Tower Of God)
In a surprise turn of events, Rachel from Tower of God is a character that both manga and anime fans can agree on: they despise her.
When Rachel is shown to be pretending to be crippled in order to push Bam from the tower in the final episode, she is seen as betraying him after he had hoped to help her climb the tower.
