6 Of The Most Sensitive Male Anime Characters You Should Get To Know

Sensitive can mean two things:

  1. Sensitive to your environment. Meaning: observant, able to understand people’s feelings, body language, etc.
  2. Easily offended, hurt, etc. This is self explanatory.

Now that’s out the way, here are some male anime characters who fit both of those definitions:

1. Koro Sensei (Assassination Classroom)

Even though he’s logical, he does seem to lean on the “emotional” side when dealing with people. And he’s especially sensitive to other people’s feelings, body language, what makes them tick, etc.


2. Seishuu Handa (Barakamon)

Let’s not forget: this guy punches an art critic in the face in the first episode of Barakamon.

Why? Because he criticized Seishuu’s caligraphy work.

He’s also easily annoyed and irritated. Though this changes throughout the anime a little.


3. Rentaro Satomi (Black Bullet)

Rentaro has a big heart and is surprisingly caring about others (despite his demeanor).

He’ll go out of his way to fight against injustice, and is understanding of other people’s feelings. Especially Enju (a main character).


4. Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)

Sensitive to other people’s feelings, especially to his own detriment (in the beginning at least).

In fact his kindness and empathy is a double-edged sword. Which can either hurt or benefit him depending on the context.

This is what makes him relatable though, and a likable character. Because he’s imperfect.


5. Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail)

Natsu is a simple guy. But that’s what makes him stand out.

If he cares? He’ll show it without hesitation.

If he wants to cry? He’ll cry.

If he’s pissed off? You’ll know about it.

He’s one of the most sensitive male anime characters. And because of his slight naivety, he’s shameless about his actions (in a good way).


6. Chakuro (Children Of The Whales)

Chakuro’s extremely sensitive and emotional. So much so that some characters complain about it.

“Don’t cry” “why are you crying?” etc, etc.

But that’s what makes him interesting. He’s able to sense even the smallest hint of emotion in others, and how they’re feeling. And he’s able to look at things from other people’s perspectives (empathy).

Also, he’s not sensitive just for the sake of it either.

Can you name anymore sensitive male characters?
