Social butterflies aren’t for everyone. Having a conversation with a stranger can be awkward for some people.
Even if we’re in a place like a cafe or a restaurant where we’re comfortable.
There are a lot of socially awkward characters in anime that you might identify with.
In the beginning, they may have a hard time. However, with practice or the assistance of a friend, one can improve.
Despite this, they’re all likable though socially awkward characters.
Let’s talk about it.
Here are 11 examples of socially awkward anime characters.
1. Kanade Tachibana
What would happen if you met Kanade Tachibana? You’d have a difficult time chatting with her.
Her lack of interest in your conversation could give the impression that she is unpleasant and incompetent.
Kanade Tachibana, on the other hand, is socially awkward and an inept communicator.
This is something Otonashi even mentions to her and she agrees with it.
Aside from that, Kanade’s keen demeanor, high intelligence, and unique personality traits make her a likable character.
2. Izuku Midoriya
Izuku Midoriya is the second character. Male anime character that is one of the most socially uncomfortable in the series.
I’m reminded of Yuki Amano from the anime Future Diary whenever I’m around him. Quite a few.
Even though Izuku isn’t a great conversationalist, he’s steadfast in his desire to succeed. It’s everything for his visions.
When it comes to learning, he’ll do whatever it takes to succeed.
Also, Izuku is one of the most pure-hearted anime characters out there.
3. Rikka Takanashi
Chuunibyou fanatic Rikka Takanashi is one of the most well-known and well-liked anime characters.
You couldn’t take this chick seriously if you met her in person.
Despite this, Rikka Takanashi is a likable character because of this.
You are correct in saying that she is a klutz who lives in a dream world she has concocted for herself.
Those attributes that aren’t immediately apparent come to the surface when Rikka puts out an effort.
When it comes to interacting with other people, Decim is no slouch. In reality, he has a gift for phrasing and a commanding stage presence to go along with his impeccable manners and impeccable word choice.
The problem is that Decim has a hard time interpreting human behavior and emotions.
Despite this, he’s one of the most intriguing anime characters I’ve ever encountered. Especially when it comes to the protagonists.
5. Sousuke Sagara
In my opinion, Sousuke Sagara is the most awful anime character ever depicted.
In some ways, even better than Tomoko Kuroki.
Mithril is an unaffiliated military organization for whom Sousuke works.
Sousuke’s terrible social presence is a result of his military training and experience.
Military service has kept him isolated from the rest of the world.
In addition, he has no idea what is suitable, how to understand people, or any of a myriad of other essentials.
In a nutshell, Sousuke has the confidence but lacks the common sense to make wise decisions. In spite of this, he’s a fascinating character to watch develop.
6. Kirin Toudou
She’s socially awkward because of her uncle, who takes advantage of her in order to get his own way.
Asterisk War, at least in the beginning of the series.
You’re almost moved to pity her.
And I’d like to assist out with the anime in some way.
In contrast, Kirin Toudou’s self-confidence and social skills improve as the anime goes.
7. Tomoko Kuroki
The show’s star is Tomoko Kuroki: It’s All Your Fault That I’m Not a Big Thing!
Too bashful, awkward, and overthinking Tomoko has a problem.
Nevertheless, what you’ll like about Tomoko’s character is that she constantly tries her best.
It doesn’t matter if she fails at all. Even if she’s utterly afraid and unable to move forward.
8. Kirika Yuumura
The social awkwardness of Kirika Yuumura makes sense. Then again, is that the case?
Kirika’s background is rife with grief, tragedy, bloodshed, and violence, all of which she has witnessed.
With that out of the way, Kirika is a quick-witted girl. Choosing to speak no more than is absolutely necessary.
You’ll be sucked in by both her tale and her overall demeanor.
As an anime character, Kirika will develop on you.
9. Kodaka Hasegawa
Once he gets to know you, Kodaka Hasegawa has no problem starting a discussion.
But in general, he’s a little awkward in the company of people.
I can’t help but think that his appearance is a major factor.
For whatever reason, Kodaka is the type of person who’s mistaken for a delinquent.
As a result, Kodaka has to put in more effort, which exacerbates his social anxiety.
10. Mai Kawasumi
I recommend Kanon to anyone who has seen Clannad. Anime that comes from the same studio.
As with Kirika, Mai Kawasumi speaks in short sentences. When necessary, he decides to speak up.
This makes it awkward and difficult for her to engage in actual conversation with others..
If you’re willing to put in the effort, you’ll discover how fascinating Mai Kawasumi is.
Finally, we have Fafnir from Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, an anime series that aired in 2017.
Compared to Tomoko Kuroki, Fafnir has a lot more confidence and self-esteem as a male/dragon.
If Fafnir were genuine, his appearance and manner could scare you. Because he gives the impression of being serious and uneasy.
His personality is revealed as an introvert who enjoys playing video games.
And he lives his life in a simple manner. This makes him a worthwhile addition to the list of interesting characters.
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is also deserving of the anime series!
