Japanese anime characters, just like real people, live all kinds of lifestyles. They can party all day and night, be married to their 9-5 job, or maybe live a bohemian lifestyle, or even a life of a punk criminal. If life has to be reduced to two different styles, they are loud or quiet, and many exciting anime characters know which of these two lifestyles they prefer.
On the one hand, living a quiet life means having stability, comforting alone time, and literally not making a lot of noise with excessive music, chatter, or anything like that. Introverted anime characters like Shoto Todoroki and Byakuya Kuchiki prefer it, but for outgoing, funny anime characters, such a lifestyle would be so boring and frustrating.
10/10 Marin Kitagawa will be seen and heard
Unlike her introverted new friend Wakana Gojo, lively gen girl Marin Kitagawa loves meeting new people, talking loudly about funny things, and stealing the spotlight with her outstanding video game and anime cosplay. The more people who shower her with attention, the better.
Marin is a party girl who makes up her life eventually, and she would be so bored and lonely if she had to spend a week all by herself. No one can force her to be an introvert; Marin simply has to fly freely and make some noise everywhere she goes.
9/10 Valac Clara loves to make a scene
Welcome to the Demon School, Iruma-Kun!
Like Marin, the green-haired Valac Clara is an energetic schoolgirl who is somehow best friends with a quiet, unassuming boy who is almost her complete opposite. Clara tends to overwhelm Iruma Suzuki and Asmodeus Alice with her wild antics, but she never means any harm.
Clara is happiest when she can participate in a group song or dance routine, and she likes to be the center of attention whenever possible. Clara is all about noise, fun and games, and she would get pretty restless trying to live a quiet, routine life if she had to try.
8/10 Katsuki Bakugo must stand on a pedestal
My Hero Academia
Pro Heroes are usually intended to inspire the crowds with public displays of heroism while fighting villains or saving lives, although there are exceptions, such as the unsung heroes who work as support-oriented Pro Heroes. Izuku wants to stand out as the new symbol of peace, and so does his friend-turned-rival, Katsuki Bakugo.
Bakugo can sit still and study to get good grades, but other than that he’s always moving, talking loudly, or fighting. He can’t stand being ignored or taken for granted, and he doesn’t just want to live a quiet, stable life in the corner. He will not support society from the shadows; he must be at the forefront and be a star.
7/10 Hayase Nagatoro continues to look for trouble
Don’t play with me, Mrs. Nagatoro!
Hayase Nagatoro is a restless middle school girl who will be the first to make a fuss if things get too quiet. Hayase may be better behaved at home, but at school and while hanging out with friends, Hayase likes to make things up as she goes – the louder the better.
Hayase is not a humble or diligent person. Instead, she thrives in group scenes where everyone is having fun. If her friends are in trouble, Hayase is quick to act, even if she makes an even bigger mess along the way. It’s hard to imagine Hayase living in a quiet corner of society and working a 9-5 job when she’s older.
6/10 Ren Yamai keeps showing up
Komi cannot communicate
Ren Yamai is a yandere who likes to be the center of attention, usually by forming a group of girlfriends and loudly gossiping with them. Ren is also a total show-off, flaunting her family’s wealth by having the latest smartphones with colorful cases, well-polished nails, and even going on trips to Hawaii.
Ren would definitely sulk and feel insulted if everyone started ignoring her, and if she changed schools, she would feel uncomfortable being the new girl that no one knows. If that happened, Ren would quickly assemble a new group of popular girls and dominate the school’s social scene.
5/10 Keigo Asano wants to know where the party is
The main character Ichigo Kurosaki wants to kick around punks and bullies, but otherwise he prefers a quiet, stable life where nothing goes wrong. Meanwhile, the same is not true for his classmate and friend, the loud and wild Keigo Asano. He’s the type who keeps asking who’s hosting a party this weekend.
Keigo doesn’t like things to be too quiet, serious or tense. He will become a total clown and make a scene just to stir things up, and he reacts with comical outrage when people ignore or reject him. Blending into the background just isn’t Keigo’s style.
4/10 Anya Forger seeks adventure
Spy X family
Young telepath Anya Forger is an excited boy who believes that every day is an adventure that should not be wasted. Anya knows her cool spy dad Loid needs her to be a good student for the sake of world peace, but alas, Anya just can’t sit still or be quiet in class.
Anya would rather go out and find something fun, and her new pet dog Bond is always invited. Anya considers herself a rookie spy, a cool agent who can defuse bombs, beat up bad guys and rescue hostages, all in time for dinner. Being a boring, book-loving student is not for her.
3/10 Naruto Uzumaki must make his mark
The shonen protagonist Naruto Uzumaki has always been an attention-seeking troublemaker, his antics stemming from his bitter loneliness and lack of validation growing up. Naruto aims to become Hokage, a great ninja that everyone can look up to and admire, and no one is going to stop him.
Naruto is compassionate and kind, but he’s also a spotlight stealer who can’t stand being ignored or sidelined. If something needs to be said or done, Naruto will jump right into the fray and do it himself, no matter what. It is unthinkable for this future Hokage to live a quiet, obscure life.
2/10 Chika Fujiwara wants to party
Kaguya-Sama: Love is War
Unlike the bookish Miko Iino, the withdrawn Yu Ishigami or the dutiful Miyuki Shirogane, the pink-haired Chika is only happy when life is totally raging with a party. Chika can sit down and study to pass her classes, but it’s no fun. She only feels alive when life is like a game.
Chika refuses to be a background nobody, nor does she want to be taken for granted. Chika is everyone’s friend, and she expresses her love with wild party games and curious but well-intentioned questions. She is quick to act if someone needs her help too. She is not a bystander.
1/10 Milim Nava must be constantly entertained
Kaguya-Sama: Love is War
The dragon-shaped demon lord Milim Nava is an immensely powerful but also childish warrior who happens to be Rimuru Tempest’s new BFF in this isekai world. Milim, who is so outgoing and lacks serious rivals, gets bored easily – so she is constantly looking for new entertainment.
Milim refuses to just sit still and mind his own business. For better or for worse, she makes everything else her business and is quite the type to wander around Rimuru’s city asking everyone what they do. In short, Milim is not the type to lurk in her cave and plot world domination, despite her demon lord title. She’d rather have some hands-on fun.
