Kenshin HIMURA main image

Before the Meiji Restoration, in the time of Trust and Betrayal, Kenshin Himura works as a deadly assassin for the changing government; his cold, calculated prowess and unmatched killing skills have earned him the nickname of Hitokiri Battousai, and it seems that nothing can stand in his way. However, as he comes into contact with new people, cracks begin to form in Kenshin's naïve view of the world.

Ten years later, during the events of the TV series, Kenshin lives as a wandering samurai. While he usually presents himself as a lighthearted, carefree individual who is downright formal in speech, deep down Kenshin regrets the mistakes of his past and refuses to kill again, fighting only with a reverse-blade sword. He is protective and loyal at all costs, and would do anything to keep his friends, including Kaoru, from harm.

He should be in top 10!  There is no anime character as indisputably lovable as Kenshin.
