You know who is underrated in anime? Male glasses characters. There are so many girls out there, but what about guys? You get old men and the middle aged teachers. That’s not appealing at all, but there is nothing more moe in my book than a good megane character. Don’t miss out on these great characters with glasses!

As the honor student of the afterlife school, Takamatsu is in charge of gathering Intel for the SSS. His glasses aren’t just for show.

Have you ever thought the scientist type was cool, but sometimes they just aren’t approachable or they make you feel inadequate? Lloyd Asplund is no such scientist. He’s the easy going scientist that you can talk to and joke around with. He never takes things seriously. He’s actually quite the mystery underneath it all. He’s got quite a few secrets.
8. Kabuto Yakushi from Naruto & Naruto Shippuden

If you’re into doctors, Kabuto Yakushi from Naruto might be your cup of tea. Although he’s not officially a medic, Kabuto is quite skilled at the trade and intelligent. Pair his medical skill with his love for power, and he’s quite the character! Not just anyone can match up so easily with the ANBU.
7. Jin from Samurai Champloo
- Episodes: 26
- Aired: May 20, 2004 - Mar 19, 2005
There is no one cooler or more collected than Jin. As the strong, stoic type, Jin is quite adept at staying calm even in the face of danger, and trust me, Samurai Champloo is quite full of it. This makes him extremely skilled as a samurai and formidable in martial arts. He may seem curt, since he does not speak much, but he does care for his companions and will even sacrifice himself to save them.
6. Kyoshiro Ayanokoji from Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jan 5, 2007 - Mar 23, 2007
If first impressions were all we needed to judge a person’s character, Kyoshiro would be forever labeled a weirdo. Not many gentlemen would just rip a girl’s blouse open upon meeting them. That’ll destroy any prince-like delusions! However, despite this rocky start, Kyoshiro is still very much able to capture Kuu’s heart. Don’t you envy his charisma? He’s not quite royalty, but he’s still very much a prince.
5. Uryuu Ishida (Bleach)
- Episodes: 366
- Aired: Oct 5, 2004 - Mar 27, 2012
If you’re a fan of the quiet, intelligent type, you will definitely find that in Uryuu Ishida. Don’t let his quiet demeanor fool you. He’s a skilled Quincy with a deep hatred for Shinigami. Despite his hatred for Shinigami, he’s always willing to help out his friends. No matter what he’s doing, he does it with great intensity. Just check him out when he’s sewing.
4. Azusa Asahina (Brother’s Conflict)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jul 2, 2013 to Sep 17, 2013
Unlike many glasses characters, Azusa is neither cold nor calculating. He’s very caring and devoted to his twin brother. On top of that, he’s a voice actor, which is a refreshing change of pace for a meganekko, don’t you think? Yes, glasses may make people look more intelligent, but isn’t it great to see something beyond intelligence in a character that wears glasses? Azusa breaks the typical mold and shows you that there’s more to a true glasses character than brains.
3. Franken Stein (Soul Eater)
- Episodes: 51
- Aired: Apr 7, 2008 - Mar 30, 2009
When life becomes dull, find yourself someone like Franken Stein from Soul Eater. Not only is he a teacher, he’s got the scars to prove just how hardcore he is. Balancing on the border of sanity, there is never a dull moment with Stein. Just make sure you’re a light sleeper or you may find yourself waking up with a few changes in your anatomy. Despite his love for dissecting living beings, Stein has a good head on his shoulders, great control over his madness, and the power to protect all he cares for.
2. Loke (Fairy Tail)

Loke was first introduced as the playboy mage of Fairy Tail, but as the story went on, we begin to see a deeper side of him. If you didn’t like him at first, his back story may make you change your mind. While possessing a strong sense of honor, Loke will do anything to protect his friends, even at the cost of his own life. He understands his place in the celestial spirit hierarchy, and is willing to take the punishments that are due. Loke more than just some flirtatious playboy; He’s the leader of the Golden Zodiac Keys, and that is more than just a title.
1. Kyouya Ootori (Ouran High School Host Club)
- Episodes: 26
- Aired: Apr 5, 2006 - Sep 27, 2006
Maybe it’s because he’s a host or maybe it’s because he’s smart, but Kyouya Ootori from Ouran High School Host Club tops my list of megane characters! Although some might not enjoy him compared to the other hosts, I find his cold, calculating personality a perfect match up for his outer meganekko and inner businessman. Despite his coldness, Kyouya does have a caring side to him. He may look like the bad guy, but he’s 100% percent worthy of my adoration. No question about it! It’s no wonder, regardless of how long this anime has been out, he is still the coolest male glasses character in my book.
There is just something so great about guys in glasses. Although, a great glasses character is rare, the good ones do stand out above the rest! I’m sure you have a few good suggestions so let’s hear them!
