15 Best Anime with Good Looking Guys (2023)

One of anime’s highlights has to be all the good looking guys. Many anime contain at least one male character so handsome that we all end up swooning. And that’s why we’ll be talking about the 15 best anime with good looking guys.

For this list, we’ll be considering those anime which have an ensemble cast of good looking guys, and not just one incredibly hot guy in an otherwise average or female-populated cast.

So, even though Usui comes to mind when thinking about handsome anime boys, Maid Sama! won’t appear in this list. And we must also add that the entries on this list are placed in no specific order.

So, without further ado, let’s begin the list of the 15 best anime with good looking guys.
