If you’re a frequent anime watcher like me, then it’s a given that certain characters will remind you of another character from a completely different series. After all, they are 2D and you can’t make an utterly unique character’s appearance every single time. Even in Indonesia, almost every one’s hair here is either black or really dark brown.
Unless you dye them in different color.
Anyway, one of the examples that immediately come to mind is Haru (Free!!) and Fujiwara (Prince of Stride). They have short straight black hair with a fringe in the middle of their blue eyes. Both of them are relatively quiet as well and extremely talented in their chosen sports. I’m guessing a character with these physical traits is a must-have in sports anime, at least the hair part. (Hint: our dorky Karasuno setter, Seidou’s ace, etc.)
I also think that Kimizuki (Owari no Seraph) and Tsukki (Haikyuu!!) looks very similar. Even with the difference in hair color, I think when I first laid my eyes on Kimizuki, I was instantly reminded of Tsukki. It must be because of their tall built and black-framed glasses. Plus, their hairstyles are actually identical. But unlike Tsukki who has motivational issues, Kimizuki doesn’t seem to suffer from the same problem. I know there’s a guy who looks even more similar to Kimizuki in Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge but since I don’t watch that anime, I’m not gonna talk about it haha ^^;
Speaking about being identical, the last examples I got here have different hair — EXCEPT THEIR FACES THOUGH. Doppo (Bungou Stray Dogs) looks like blond Hyuuga (Kuroko no Basket) no matter how many times I try to tell myself otherwise!
Well, that concludes my post today! There are some more characters that I’d like to mention, like Kyouya from Ookami Shoujo and Sunakawa from Ore Monogatari. Gray from Fairy Tail and Okumura Rin from Ao no Exorcist looks nearly identical as well. KyoAni characters also look similar to one another though I wouldn’t put them on the list since they belong to the same studio anyway.
