There’s nothing we love more than a great hero to admire in anime and manga. Each plot might be full of trials (related to combat, relationships or otherwise!), but it’s precisely because our protagonists are so great of heart that it’s possible to put our trust in them – no matter how bad things get.
Did any characters come to mind? We have gathered a list of anime’s most trustworthy characters, so let’s see if your favorite hero is among them!

Next in 2nd with 7% of the vote is Edogawa Conan from Detective Conan! Despite his childlike appearance, he always manages to solve the mystery and save the day somehow. He also always comes through for Ran when she’s in a pinch, which is definitely admirable!
