What You Need to Know:
- Whether you know any Japanese or not, anime characters with accents aren't too hard to spot. No matter where they're from in Japan, speaking with anything other than the standard Tokyo dialect can really give characters an extra charm.
- In a poll spanning between 15 September and 21 September, Charapedia held a poll to find out which anime characters with accents Japanese otaku love best. Most of the respondents were men in their teens or twenties.
