EMPATPAGIA.COM- One of the funniest things about anime is the design of each character. However, often the designs of some anime characters contradict their stature, features, and looks, whether they were done on purpose or not.
One of these contradictory cases is that there are so many characters who have the appearance of stature based on their ages. There are also some anime characters whose age turns out to be much older than their appearance, but it turns out that some have the opposite condition.
10 Anime Characters Who Are Younger Than They Look (&Their Ages)
1. Yoko Littner
During his debut in the anime Gurren Lagann, Yoko Littner stole the hearts of many because of his attitude, great skills in shooting, and also he has extraordinary appearance. However, many fans were surprised when they found out about Yoko's real age.
Yoko does have an appearance that looks like a character at least 18 years old, but she's actually 14 years old. Fans were fooled by the way she dressed when she debuted because the way she dressed was actually quite controversial for a 14-year-old girl.
2. Ichigo Kurosaki
The protagonist in the Bleach series, Ichigo may look like a man in his early 20s, but in fact, he is much younger. Ichigo is actually only 15 years old, even younger than the anime character Jotaro Kujo, while Ichigo is still in high school. This made him one of the oldest high school students.
3. Mitsukuni Haninozuka
One of the characters who managed to steal the hearts of fans of the series is Mitsukuni Haninozuka, better known as Honey-senpai from the Ouran Host Club anime. The appearance of this character is very deceptive, as he is actually one of the oldest characters in the series, at 17 years old.
4. Vice President (Danshi Kokousei No Nichijou)
The Vice President character from the anime series is one of the oldest high school students in this anime series. At only 17 years old, this student council president has the appearance of a man in his late 40s.
5. Baki Hanma
Baki the Grappler is an anime series that is comparable to JoJo's because in terms of design this anime character often makes a character look older than his actual age.
The protagonist of this anime series, Baki Hanma, has the appearance of at least that of a man in his 20s but is actually a 17-year-old high school student.
6. Kaoru Hanayama
Another example of a character from the anime series Baki is Hanayama, who is probably the age that matches his appearance. When he made his debut appearance in the Baki series, Hanayama was actually 15 years old and his appearance continued to be like that until he was now 20 years old.
7. Dio Brando
Just like his nemesis, Jotaro, Dio has an age that doesn't match his real appearance. When Dio first appeared, he was said to be 20 or 21 after the time-skip. However, now he looks older, after using the Stone Mask Dio starts to look like a man who should be in his late 30s or early 40s.
Many Hunter X Hunter fans see Leorio as a man who is at least 25 years old. Leorio is actually a young man who is 19 years old, the perfect age for a medical student on his way to becoming a doctor.
9. Jotaro Kujo
Another anime character who is much younger than his appearance is Jotaro Kujo, he is the main character of the anime series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders.
Jotaro is actually a high school student who is only 17 years old. This contradiction is actually one of the most hilarious parts of the classic JoJo anime series character designs.
Piccolo is one of the characters in the Dragon Ball anime series whose appearance is very far from his age. Yes, Piccolo is seen as one of the oldest members of the Z-Fighters team.
After the defeat of King Piccolo, Piccolo was actually only slightly older than Goku's first son, Gohan. For example, during the Raditz Saga, when Gohan was four years old, Piccolo was eight years old, only four years older than Gohan.
