Anti-heroes are amoral protagonists that will use any method to achieve their goals. They lack the idealism of traditional heroes, and can have either an uncaring or cynical view of the world. What stops them from being villains is that their enemies are a lot worse.

Anime, especial shounen works, is filled with happy-go-lucky heroes and friendship power! But, there are anti-heroes lurking in the shadows if you know where to look…

1. Guts – Berserk

2. Sebastian Michaelis – Black Butler
