Top 10 Anime Where Main Characters Are Emotionless But Strong As Hell
When it comes to emotionless anime main characters we all know that they may not be as flashy as their more enthusiastic friends, these anime guys are low energy to the max, but that hides some extraordinary skills in their pockets. Throughout anime, there have been plenty of characters that appear emotionless (or perhaps even cold). With no further addition, here is a list of ten such unemotional characters that shine well in the face of adversity.
10. Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?

This world’s name is, “Little Garden”. Kurousagi greets the trio, and explains to them, that they must use their psychic powers.

9. Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World
- Genres: Action, Adventure, Psychological, Slice of Life
- Studios: A.C.G.T.
Kino is an emotionless anime character, a 15-year-old traveler, who forms a bond with Hermes, a talking motorcycle. Together, they wander the lands and venture through various countries and places, despite having no clear idea of what to expect. After all, life is a journey filled with the unknown.
Throughout their journeys, they encounter different kinds of customs, from the morally gray to tragic and fascinating. They also meet many people: some who live to work, some who live to make others happy, and some who live to chase their dreams. Thus, in every country they visit, there is always something to learn from the way people carry out their lives.
It is not up to Kino or Hermes to decide whether these asserted values are wrong or right, as they merely assume the roles of observers within this small world. They do not attempt to change or influence the places they visit, despite how absurd these values would appear. That’s because, in one way or another, they believe things are fine as they are, and that “the world is not beautiful; therefore, it is.”
