I’m sure everyone knows of at least one person that is socially awkward. Whenever they say or do something, your reaction is something along the lines of “uh…” followed by an awkward silence and backing away.
It’s uncommon for socially awkward people to be very popular, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with anime characters.

1. Mr. Kimura (Azumanga Daioh)

Mr. Kimura (Azumanga Daioh)

A lot of schools have that one teacher that simply creeps out all of the students. In Azumanga Daioh, that teacher goes by the name of Mr. Kimura. 

What makes Mr. Kimura creepy (and socially awkward) isn’t only that he always just appears out of nowhere, but he seems obsessed with looking at schoolgirls, especially in gym clothes and swimsuits. 

Oddly enough, he has a beautiful wife and daughter, cleans up litter, and donates to charity. Mr. Kimura is viewed as a champion among men, both at the school in the series and in the 3D realm.

2. Sousuke Sagara (Full Metal Panic)

Sousuke Sagara (Full Metal Panic)

If you aren’t around normal people for most of your life, you’re bound to be socially awkward when you get dumped into a normal school environment. That’s what happened to Sousuke, who spent most of his life on the battlefield. 

He may have a keen sense of danger, but that ends up in him blowing up his locker for fear of a bomb when someone simply left a letter, and other explosive situations. 

What makes him so funny is that he takes everyday occurrences, looks at them through a military lens, and turns them into some armed conflict. It’s hard not to enjoy seeing Sousuke’s interpretations of ordinary life.
