We all watch anime because they give us emotions, but living wonderful adventures isn’t the only reason for us starting a new series. C’mon, let’s be honest; what catches our interest isn’t just the plot, the magnificence of the trailer and expectations we have on it, but also – and above all – the percentage of good-looking guys we know will appear on the screen and make us feel happy to be alive. Have you ever heard the saying “the eye needs its share too”? Well, this couldn’t be more appropriate when we’re speaking about anime, because it’s true that a good story makes a masterpiece, but real excitement does come when you’re also able to find appealing characters that has everything you’ve always craved for!
This goes for fanboys as it goes for fangirls, but today Honey’s Anime aims to make the ladies and all other lovers of the male form happy! After all, what is better than washboard abs and broad shoulders to enjoy your daily dose of your favorite anime? Well, perfect A-side surely has its importance, but a body can be said “stunning” only when the B-side is on top of its form! So, what we want to show you in this article is the list of the most beautiful male anime butts of the twenty-first century!
Connoisseurs of the male body, this countdown is what you all were waiting for! Enjoy reading and… feast your eyes!
10. Genjoo Sanzo/Gensoumaden Saiyuuki (Saiyuki)
- Episodes: 50
- Aired: Apr. 2000 – Mar. 2001
Who thinks that a story about Buddhist beliefs has got to be full of not appealing and boring characters has clearly never met Genjō Sanzo from Saiyūki before. For the ones who don’t know, High Priest Sanzo is a rogue guy with a very dirty mouth, living in a land called Tōgenkyō. Here, humans and demons could live together peacefully, but one day a strange anomaly began to spread, infecting demons’ mind. The harmony between the two races ended when demons, in the grip of madness, started attacking humans and plotted to bring the King of demoniac reign, Gyumao, back to life. To keep that from happening, Sanzo gets summoned by the deity Kanzeon Bosatsu and charged of a mission: embark on a journey to the west and restore the balance between humans and demons.
When we think about “monks” the first thing that springs to mind is a very kind old man with a peaceful smile on his face. Which is exactly what Sanzo is not. Indeed, Sanzo, who has ended up being appointed High Priest very early and has had it the rough way because of demons who are constantly trying to make attempts on his life, is an athletic young man always running away from danger. With all that running around it’s just obvious that Sanzo was able to build hard-rock butts like the ones he shows in the Burial episode dedicated to his life before meeting Gōku. Naked and wet due to the water flowing on him, but also full of black-and-blue marks due to the beatings, THAT Sanzo’s B-side definitely deserves at least position #10 of this countdown.
9. Tokiya Ichinose/Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love 1000%
- Episodes: 13
- Aired: Jul. 2011 – Sep. 2011
Searching for sexy butts? Then you need to purchase a ticket for the next ST☆RISH’s concert and get up early to get a front-row seat in order to admire them better! What? You don’t know what ST☆RISH is? Ok, don’t panic and bend your ear to this amazing story! ST☆RISH began as an idea of Haruka Nanami, an aspiring composer from the countryside who had a dream: writing music for her idol, Hayato. Determined to make her desire come true, Haruka enrolled into Saotome Academy, a prestigious school for performing arts. But Haruka’s school life wasn’t so easy as she imagined it to be; surrounded by true geniuses and amazing talents, Haruka had to work hard for being worthy of staying in the school, so fate praised her one night by making her meet with a mysterious talented singer who resembles her beloved Hayato…
… and has one of the most amazing butt ever! Hayato’s lookalike, a.k.a. Tokiya Ichinose is a wannabe idol who really trains hard both musically and physically to prove himself capable in the eye of the headmaster of his school who thinks he has no talent. And all the exercises Tokiya made paid him back well! Tokiya’s round and solid butt is a proof of his efforts and his fans’ pride and joy! There are many people from UtaPri fandom who think Tokiya shaking his behind in the second season opening is some sort of heaven-sent blessing, so position #9 couldn’t be other than his!
8. Daiki Aomine/Kuroko no Basket (Kuroko’s Basketball)
- Episodes: 25
- Aired: Apr. 2012 – Sep. 2012
It is well-known that spokon anime has the best B-sides ever, so it’s just obvious that position #8 is for Daiki Aomine, one of the best butts we can find in Kuroko no Basket. Kuroko no Basket follows the adventures of Seirin High School team and, in particular, Aomine’s sworn enemy Taiga Kagami. Kagami is a promising player who trained for a long time in the US, but once back to his home country, which is not particularly known for its athletes, Kagami feels like he has been deprived of the thrill of playing his favorite game. He decides to join the basketball club anyway and there’s where he meets Tetsuya Kuroko, an ordinary student who lacks on presence and incapable to score any points. But Kuroko is determined to give Kagami a new objective; making his team become the first of Japan after defeating all the players with godlike abilities from “The Generation of Miracles”.
Aomine is a member of The Generation of Miracles and a terribly strong player, which makes him the ace of his team. Despite that, Aomine doesn’t like to train so much, but all the basketball he has played during junior high was probably enough to make him build and preserve that cut and chiseled body of his which made fans all over the world fall for him even in high school. It’s no coincidence, indeed, that Aomine is one of the characters from Kuroko no Basket most drawn by fans as the day he was born! As for the anime, it’s true that Aomine doesn’t enjoy training, but he likes swimming very much, luckily! And we can admire his marvelous behind anytime his does! Want a taste of Aomine’s butt? Then watch the first ending of the third season carefully! You will soon understand why he needed to be in position #8!
7. Speed-o'-Sound Sonic/One Punch Man
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Oct. 2015 – Dec. 2015
One Punch Man is an action-comedy that follows the adventures of the ordinary and not particularly impressive Saitama, who is determined to make his childhood dream to be a hero come true. Saitama trains hard for three years and becomes incredibly powerful to the point that no enemy is able to defeat him. In fact, he can knock them down with just a single punch. Bored by battles that don’t thrill him anymore, Saitama’s life changes once he meets Genos, a young cyborg wishing to become Saitama’s disciple, who proposes him to join the Hero Association in order to become a certified hero.
Of course, being super heroes, Saitama and Genos have got well-structured bodies too, but they’re nothing compared to the slim, feminine and gentle shape of their dangerous enemy Speed-o'-Sound Sonic. We have to thank special abilities as crazy jumping and abnormal speed that, mixed with a stealthy and graceful fighting style, made him the solid and yet classy way he is. Despite looking absolutely frightening when he smiles, Speed-o'-Sound Sonic could easily be mistaken for a woman, if seen from behind; his perfect round forms make his B-side a candy for both male and female watchers’ eyes and the form-fitting outfit leaving nothing to imagination he wears made him win position #7 of our countdown!
6. Satoshi Isshiki/Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma)
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Apr. 2015 – Sep. 2015
Probably one of the best-known backside scenes in anime history is Satoshi Isshiki’s from Shokugeki no Sōma. Shokugeki no Sōma follows the adventures of Sōma Yukihira, a fifteen-year-old who has always helped his father working as a chef at the family restaurant. Despite his young age, Yukihira is a real talent with cooking, and the more the years passes, the more he understands how much he loves to create new recipes. Yukihira’s natural inclination to cooking will bring him to Tōtsuki Culinary Academy, famous for being an elite cooking school, but also for its so-called “food wars”.
Not all perfect butts come from a hard training and Isshiki is the living proof of that. Well, certainly Isshiki had to work a lot to become a great chef, but for sure his pleasing appearance was a present from Mother Nature that he’s not afraid to show off anytime he can. Indeed, Isshiki likes to prepare his delicious meals wearing nothing more than an apron and his friends find him appealing and somewhat inspiring… as it’s seen in episode four, when they happily celebrate Isshiki’s apron gag coolness all together! Could position #6 be more appropriate for someone else’s?
5. Yuuji Kazami/Grisaia no Kajitsu (The Fruit of Grisaia)
- Episodes: 13
- Aired: Oct. 2014 – Dec. 2014
Yūji Kazami, who is the main character of Grisaia no Kajitsu, is a transfer student with a dark past who has just been admitted into Mihama Academy. His goal until the end of high school is to live an ordinary life as far as possible from troubles, but Mihara Academy is not the quiet place he hoped it to be; five more girls attend the school, each of which bears a painful secret result of past traumatic experiences. Will Yūji be able to save himself and the girls from themselves?
Although being a very dramatic anime, fans of Grisaia no Kajitsu agree when it comes to Yūji’s perfect shape, that is shown more than once in the anime. In fact, Yūji is pretty well-built and has got a handsome face, but the reason for him to be so popular is probably the fact that Yūji is covered in scars, which makes him even more intriguing in his lovers’ eyes. A-side fanservice isn’t, of course, the only one Grisaia no Kajitsu gifts to its fans; there aren’t many butts scenes in this anime, but the few shown were enough to make Yūji’s backside gain fifth position!
4. Hisoka Morov/Hunter x Hunter
- Episodes: 148
- Aired: Oct. 2011 – Sep. 2014
With a character as Hisoka Morov, butts scenes in Hunter x Hunter could never be missing, and poor Gon knows it very well too. Gon is a guy of many talents who decides to follow his father steps and become a Hunter. But Hunters in Gon’s world are not simple relic predators; on the contrary, they perform all kind of dangerous mission normal people couldn’t deal with, from exploring uncharted lands to capture ruthless criminals. While wishing to lead the same life his father led and hoping to find him somewhere, Gon’s travel will bring him many friends who will help him in his task.
Even if you are not part of Hunter x Hunter’s fandom, it’s unlucky if you have never heard about Hisoka’s butts scenes! Hisoka’s behind – and not only that – is quite legendary in the world of anime, so this is why his position is the closest to the top three. With a marmoreal backside – just as the rest of his body – the selfish, self-serving and self-absorbed Hisoka couldn’t be prouder of what he has got. This is probably the reason for Hisoka’s showing off, to the point that he could hardly be thought of without his narcissistic habit! Well, after all, Hisoka is shown to have an ass fetish and, not for nothing, is referred to as “perv freak”.
3. Makoto Tachibana/Free! (Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jul. 2013 – Sep. 2013
The last position of the hottest three is all for sexy Makoto Tachibana from Free!, one of the most loved of the spokon recently aired. Free! is the story of Haruka Nanase, a high school student who loves water and swimming. In elementary school, together with his childhood friends Makoto, Nagisa Hazuki, and Rin Matsuoka, Haruka took part to a relay race which his team was able to win, but soon after its members went separate ways. Now in high school, Haruka claims he has given up swimming competitively. Maybe, the reason lies in Rin’s sudden change, who seems to hate his old relay mates and be obsessed with proving himself better than Haruka. The traumatic reunion won’t stop Nagisa and Makoto from starting a swimming club anyway.
Crowned as Sexiest Anime Man of 2013 with the unbelievable total of 24861 votes, Makoto is simply flawless in fans’ eyes! Makoto has everything that someone who is in search for the perfect guy could ask for; his caring manners and considerate behavior undoubtedly make him a pleasant character already, but beautiful green irises, broad shoulders and muscular butts surely improve his character! Scenes in which Makoto is wearing his swimming suit and poses for the camera are euphemistically enjoyable; who could blame Gou for being so obsessed with this and the other guys’ muscles?
2. Victor Nikiforov/Yuri!! on ICE
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Oct. 2016 – Dec. 2016
When it comes to butts, spokon has it better, so it’s no surprise to find Viktor Nikiforov from Yuri!!! on ICE in second position! In Yuri!!! on ICE, Viktor is the person Yuri Katsuki, a professional ice skater who’s arrived last at the Gran Prix Finale, the most important competition in figure skating, admires the most. But Yuri isn’t good enough to reach his level so, defeated both physically and mentally, he decides to give up skating and devote himself to study. One year later, he’s an overweight graduate who doesn’t know what to do with his life. To clear his head, he goes to skate at his former ice rink, where he performs one of Viktor’s most difficult choreography without knowing he’s being filmed. Published on the Web, the video will go viral and reach Viktor himself who, certain of Yuri’s talent, will offer to train him for the next Gran Prix Finale.
Yuri!!! on ICE surely isn’t missing fanservice moments, which involves Viktor more than ever. Extremely self-confident and proud of what he was able to accomplish with his own strength, Viktor knows well who he is and how much appearance is important for a figure skater as he and Yuri are. Viktor views appearance as essential in what he does, so he can’t understand Yuri for being so careless about his body which should be as artistic as his performances. This is probably why Viktor doesn’t mind about showing off and taking pictures of himself to post them on Twitter every time he can. Of course, a perfect body can’t exist without a perfect butt and, luckily, in Yuri!! on ICE we can admire it more than once yet starting from the first episode!
1. Takuya Sekizan/All Out!!
- Episodes: 25
- Aired: Oct. 2016 – Mar. 2017
Finally, in first position we find Takuya Sekizan as representative of every other character appearing in All Out!! Because, honestly speaking, All Out!! has the best butts shown in an anime, highlighted by those minuscule, tight shorts they are wearing as a uniform. Takuya Sekizan is, in fact, the captain of the rugby club in Kanagawa High School where Kenji Gion, a small but well-build student, decides to join soon after the school entrance ceremony. With the exception of Sekizan, Kanagawa High School team members are not conventional players, tall and with athletic bodies; Gion’s classmate Iwashimizu is not particularly talented, sub-captain Hachiōji is overweight and Gion himself is really short. They will have to work together to overcome their physical limits and become an unbeatable team.
Serious, strict and particularly demanding, Sekizan has the fierce spirit of a true captain, but also the appearance. Sekizan is the soul of his team to be both big and in perfect shape. Probably due to his taking rugby more seriously than any other else, Sekizan has worked hard to be prepared to deal with all the opposing teams and win over them. There’s no particular scene involving Sekizan’s, but his perfect and juicy booty can be admired pretty much in every fragment of the anime in which he is shown. Maybe this is why Sekizan’s butts lovers were able to make him gain position #1!
There was a song who roughly went like “shake your booty because it’s your duty and it doesn’t matter if it’s small, fat, all round or juicy”. This song perfectly fit our countdown so, with this music on the background, we thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed the article as much as we enjoyed to make the list for you!
