There’s no such thing as being “too kind” or “too sensitive.” To some extent, yes.
A character or an individual will always be criticized for being “too” something. In the end, it’s all about your point of view and your level of tolerance, of course.
Empathic and open-hearted, sensitive anime characters aren’t the sort to keep their feelings bottled up. I’m talking about those feelings that others tend to dismiss as “weak” ones.
To me, that’s what gives them character and authenticity (especially when it’s grounded in reality).
I’ve compiled a list of 15 anime characters who meet that criteria…
1. Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)
This character is one of the most happy, enthusiastic and friendly you’ll meet in the game. Such optimism would make even the most pessimistic person queasy.
It doesn’t matter to him whether the person he’s forgiving happens to be a bully.
Furthermore, Izuku is a relatable character due to his authenticity and rawness.
For many of us, a lack of self-confidence is something we can identify with. As a result, he has become one of the most “human” characters in anime.
2. Nana Komatsu (Nana)
Compared to Izuku, Nana Komatsu is even more empathetic. Moreover, she is an extrovert who need continual stimulation to keep her going.
The fact that Nana is so empathetic means that she is able to empathize with others. Whichever way you want to look at it. She’s also really approachable.
Anyone who watches this anime (particularly women) can identify with Nana’s personal issues with insecurity, relationships, and just getting through life in general.
3. Lucy Heartfilia (Fairy Tail)
There she is…the one everyone loves to loathe. Lucy Heartfilia,
Lucy, like Nana Komatsu, is a person who is easy to get along with. Moreover, she wears her emotions on her sleeves.
You’ll know if she’s agitated. Those who know her well know she doesn’t like to keep secrets.
Lucy, on the other hand, is one of the most dynamic characters in Fairy Tail. Mentally and emotionally. Bringing her character to life in a meaningful and relatable way.
4. Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)
Aside from his own, Ichigo is a character who cares deeply about the well-being of others. The majority of this derives from the loss of his mother at a young age.
Ichigo’s behavior, thoughts, and emotions all changed as a result of the experience. Ichigo is a sensitive, relatable, and lovable protagonist because of this.
5. Kakeru Naruse (Orange)
Kakeru Naruse is a character who is sensitive, caring, and sympathetic in a unique way. After his mother dies, Kakeru’s view and outlook on life change dramatically.
Kakeru had been impolite (or not very appreciative) to his mother just hours before the incident occurred. That was the final time he spoke to her before she passed away.
As a result, Kakeru falls into a deep depression and begins to consider suicide. And during the entire season of Orange, he battles with it.
6. Orihime Inoue (Bleach)
It’s impossible for Orihime to be mean to anyone, even those she considers her adversaries. Forget about the commoner. She has a pure heart in the sense that she never harbors hatred in her heart. Regardless of the circumstances.
This level of compassion and empathy is quite rare in the actual world. ‘ Only a select few people possess the tenacity it takes to act in such a way.
7. Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail)
Getting along with Natsu is simple and straightforward. Despite his youthful demeanor, he has a mature, open-minded approach to life.
Natsu, like Orihime, is forgiving, sympathetic, and overflowing with kindness. And that’s why he’s a fascinating and intriguing figure to watch.
8. Rentaro Satomi (Black Bullet)
Rentaro resembles a crocodile in every way. He appears to be a tough guy on the outside, with a tough skin that has been toughened by his unfortunate past. There’s a tender side to his nature that he doesn’t show as much as he’d like.
Rentaro is kind to others, but he’s also tough enough to call out hypocrisy when he sees it. Nobody can stand in his way.
9. Koro Sensei (Assassination Classroom)
Having Koro Sensei as a teacher would be the best experience of your life. He prioritizes his pupils’ talents and works tirelessly to ensure that every student succeeds at their peak.
His demeanor resembles that of an animated version of a real-life superhero in the classroom. Who is sensitive but firm enough to let people know where they stand. And he’ll make it clear what he will and will not accept from you.
10. Chakuro (Children Of The Whales)
Chakuro is the type of person who will shed a tear and not care in the slightest. To put it another way, the whole “guys aren’t supposed to cry” nonsense doesn’t bother him.
He doesn’t try to hide his feelings like Lucy Heartfilia does. Aside from that, his kindness may be getting the better of him at times.
11. Megumi Tadokoro (Food Wars)
Food Wars’ “cry baby” is Megumi. Without even mentioning their fear of losing their sh*t when they freak out. They call it “frazzle brain.” Megumi, on the other hand, is sweet, kind, caring, and so pure of heart that she could light up a room with her smile.
Megumi Tadokoro is one of the nicest anime characters I’ve ever encountered. A person like that would be tough to hold a grudge against for long.
12. Sayako Kuwahara (Bamboo Blade)
When Sayako is upset, angry, or disappointed, she becomes a complete mess. An understatement to call her a “drama” queen. In terms of sensitivity, she’s perhaps the most vulnerable character here.
However, she’s the most optimistic, friendly, and compassionate character in Bamboo Blade, despite her erratic attitude and uncontrolled emotions. And that’s what sets her apart from the rest of the pack.
13. Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)
In the anime world, Edward Elric is yet another example of “sensitive but compassionate” individuals.
At the same time, he is sensitive to other people’s sentiments and circumstances, and he is easily irritated.
Underneath it all, there’s a young man trying to cope with the situation he’s put himself in. The agonizing loss of his mother triggered this.
14. Anzu (Hinamatsuri)
After being compelled to coexist with humans in Hinamatsuri, Anzu finds himself on the streets. Over time, you’ll be able to see how her attitude shifts and how her character develops as a result.
As a child, Anzu is impulsive and self-centered. But being homeless transforms her into a completely new person, making her more aware of the sentiments and behaviors of others.
All things considered, Anzu is by far the most gentle, caring and genuine anime character in the series. It’s all worth it, even if it’s a bumpy ride.
15. Kenzo Tenma (Monster)
Kenzo Tenma is a surgeon who regrets a decision that alters his life for the rest of his existence. That of people who were close to him. That is, because in saving the life of a kid who turns out to be a serial killer by accident.
The story follows Kenzo as he attempts to atone for his wrongdoings, as well as the inner turmoil that accompanies him on this trip.
In the actual world, there aren’t many surgeons and doctors who can perform like Tenma.
Despite the hardships of life, it’s remarkable how generous and nice individuals can still be. Despite the fact that it’s unjust.
As a result, Monster is one of the most relatable animes ever made.
