Studies say that eye color is determined by the amount of melanin in the iris, but for yellow eyes, there is no real genetic explanation. However, what does exist in our ranking today is a list of the 10 best anime boys with yellow eyes!
The language of the eyes says a lot about a person, in this case about a boy, but if those eyes that look at us effusively, tenderly, and deeply are yellow, we may fall in love with them … not only because of their tonality but also because of what that character is and does. Well, kids! Let’s once and for all bedazzled with these sun-colored eyes!
10. Eugene Alexandre de Volkan
- Episodes: 39
- Issuance: April 2009 to February 2010
We can already start sighing with the first boy with yellow eyes, Eugene Alexandre de Volkan, who just by looking at us can fall in love with ipso facto. Since his appearance in episode 2 of the Romance anime Hanasakeru Seishounen, Eugene delights us with an elegant appearance, which goes well with his silver hair and somewhat expressionless personality.
But if there is such a fascinating character as him, there must also be a girl who loves him! In this case, it is Kajika Louisa Kugami Burnsworth, who is lucky enough to see Eugene’s mesmerizing eyes up close. Although he has a somewhat frivolous attitude, the mystery that surrounds his look is very attractive, causing us to lose ourselves hopelessly in him. It should be noted that Eugene tends to be somewhat suicidal, but for a boy like him there will always be a female who wants to save him. We envy you, Kajika!
9. Shougo Sena
- Episodes: 10
- Issuance: July 2014 to September 2014
We keep sighing, but now with Shougo Sena from Love Stage !! , a Comedy and Romance anime where tangles and misunderstandings are the order of the day, but with that touch of fun that makes us happy. It is in this series where we saw the beautiful eyes of Shougo, the talented and popular singer belonging to the band Crushers. In addition to that, he is the older brother of the boy they think of as a girl, Izumi Sena, with whom he shares his eye color.
Shougo is also very creative, writing the songs for the band. On the other hand, he tends to be very overprotective towards his brother Izumi, not letting others get close to him as they mistake him for a girl. Well, in fact, Shougo himself treats him as such, and although he can be somewhat effusive and pedantic, he is the bearer of a big heart and iris color that we would like to see for all eternity.
8. Chika Akatsuki
- Episodes: 11
- Issuance: July 2007 to September 2007
We are not lying to them, platinum-haired boys do really well with yellow eyes, and here’s another example of that! Chika Akatsuki, is the protagonist of the anime Zombie-Loan, whose story is based on the attempts of two boys, Chika and Shito Tachibana, to pay the debt of being returned from the dead. Although they are still dead and are now zombies, they must destroy other zombies as well, needing the help of Michiru Kita, the Shinigami’s Eye Bearer.
It is true that Chika tends to be ill-tempered, but she still has great affection for her sister Momoka Akatsuki. Although on many occasions he is disengaged with respect to Shito and Michiru, as the anime progresses we can see Chika in some more pleasant moments with respect to them. With her skills and the handling of her katana, Chika is a character who deserves, apart from her eyes, a place on this list.
7. Ren Tao
- Episodes: 64
- Issuance: July 2001 to September 2002
We continue to advance in the ranking, but here we must be careful what we say about Ren Tao, one of the most powerful shamans of Shaman King because he is very moody and distrustful! Although, to tell the truth, it is not his fault, as sadly he was raised with a deep contempt for humans.
But forgetting the aforementioned, Ren is a good boy who could understand that not all are bad and that there is a lot of love that he can receive and give. It is all thanks to his previous arch-enemy and anime protagonist, Yuu Asakura, another powerful shaman against whom he wishes to compete in the Shaman Fight. In Ren’s favor, cute little eyes like his make us forget if he was ever a troublesome kid.
6. Gilbert Nightray
- Episodes: 25
- Issuance: April 2009 to September 2009
Perfectly contrasting physical characteristics, such as black hair and yellow eyes, can be found in our sixth candidate today, Gilbert Nightray. A friend and faithful servant of Oz Vessalius, the latter the main character in Pandora Hearts, the servile Gilbert goes out of his way to protect and serve his master. In addition, he is the Contractor of a Chain – beings from the Abyss and with different forms, such as animals or dolls – called Raven, which only he can master.
Like Gilbert, Oz makes a contract with a Chain called B-Rabbit, the strongest in the entire Abyss (a place that acts as a kind of purgatory). During the development of the anime, we will see Gilbert do everything in his power and more to help his young master, trying to keep him safe from the creatures and the Baskerville Clan, who wishes to banish him forever to the bottom of the Abyss.
Although Gilbert receives a lot of teasing from his own master, his devout and extremely restless personality does not change but on the contrary, it grows stronger in each episode. That’s why we want it!
5. Souma Yukihira
- Episodes: 24
- Issuance: April 2015 to September 2015
We reached the middle of the ranking with a great guy with a passion for culinary art in the Ecchi anime, Shokugeki no Souma, where Souma Yukihira is the protagonist and secondary chef of the Yukihira restaurant, owned by his father. Souma must prove to both his father and the Totsuki Culinary Academy that he has what it takes to graduate and thus be considered the head and head chef of a kitchen.
Since entering the elite Totsuki school, Souma longs for his father to be proud of him and to trust him once and for all in his potential, something difficult to do since his father’s level of demand is infinite. But for the red-haired and fierce Souma, giving up is not in his DNA, which he proves with every culinary challenge he undertakes at the academy. Therefore, Souma is not only going to keep us interested in her cute little yellow eyes, but also in her creative and delicious dishes.
4. Yuuichi Komura
- Episodes: 13
- Issuance: April 2012 to June 2012
In the anime Hiiro no Kakera, Tamaki Kasuga is a high school girl who is attacked by unusual beings when she just arrives in the remote town where her grandmother lives. There she discovers that she and the other women in her family carry the blood of Princess Tamayori, which makes her responsible for keeping things in order; but next to Tamaki there are 5 guardians, who will guide and protect her from misfortunes.
To tell you about another bearer of yellow irises, Yuuichi Komura, we have to tell you what this Tamaki guardian does best … sleep! Wherever and whenever it falls asleep! Yes, we know what they will think, and a sleepy Guardian is ironic, but don’t think it’s the only thing he knows how to do. Yuuichi also possesses the Spirit Fire ability, which allows him to project blue fire from the palms of his hands and scorch his opponent.
- Episodes: 167
- Issuance: October 2000 to September 2004
This great anime about magic and supernatural beings, InuYasha, brings with it an iconic and fantastic character, called Inuyasha. Almost everyone knows that he is a half-human and half-demon dog, which has long silver hair and annihilating claws. In addition, his objective is to obtain the Pearl of Shikon, which grants its user increased powers and endless wishes.
For our popular beast boy number 3, his effusive yellow eyes express, as well as his words and his skills, what he is willing to do to collect together with Kagome Higurashi – the girl who arrives through water well – the fragments of the jewel. From then on, together they face a huge number of demons who want nothing more than to take over the powerful pearl.
2. Black Cat’s Train Heartnet
- Episodes: 23
- Issuance: October 2005 to March 2006
This vile and ruthless assassin, belonging to the Chronos Secret Organization, has earned second place for his powerful and beautiful eyes. What beautiful yellow eyes! Train Heartnet, known as Black Cat, is a character that drastically evolves during the development of the anime, something that fascinates us!
Now the well-known and feared character decides to be a quiet bounty hunter. It is that, apparently, with the appearance of Saya Minatsuki, he understands that his current way of living and making others suffer is not the only thing that he is; but what he does not leave is his ability to manipulate Hades, his fantastic revolver, which is one among many abilities that Train possesses, our second best boy with the yellow eyes in the ranking. Incidentally, we love her outfit as Black Cat!
1. Edward Elric
- Episodes: 51
- Issuance: October 2003 to October 2004
We reached the first position and we met Edward Elric, a young alchemist with long blond hair … and of course, yellow eyes. Together with his brother Alphonse, Edward tries – through an illegal practice such as alchemy – to revive his deceased mother, an act that ends in another tragedy for the Elric brothers, leading Edward to undertake the relentless search for the powerful Philosopher’s Stone…
After the incident that he and his brother suffer, our blond protagonist has no other impulse than to make his brother return to his previous state, and for this, there is no obstacle that prevents him from achieving it. His strength, intelligence, and daring give him a heroic personality, and despite feeling guilty for everything bad that happens to be more important to him, Edward does not lose his empathy and sense of humor. For all that, his great heart, and superhuman effort, our Edward have earned this first place in the ranking.
In this list, we find “normal” boys and others with incredible powers, and even some who are not even 100% human. But whatever the case, they all have one thing in common: they are the best yellow-eyed guys in anime!
If you want to make your own list of the best boys with yellow eyes, leave it below in the comments; In Honey’s Anime we hope to read them, and if you think this is great, do not hesitate to comment and recommend it. We read each other, kids!
