Japanese Fans List the Anime Characters They Can Draw from Memory

Japanese Fans List the Anime Characters They Can Draw From MemoryIn a recent poll from Charapedia that either proves they’re either running out of ideas or getting more creative (or both), the pollsters have asked readers to list the anime and manga characters they’re confident they can draw without looking at a reference.

Unsurprisingly, the list is largely made up of characters with relatively simple shapes, though there are a few slightly complicated character designs included too.

Here’s the top 10:

10. Saitama
One Punch Man

9. Popuko
Pop Team Epic

8. Kirby
Kirby’s Dream Land

7. Shinnosuke Nohara
Crayon Shin-chan

6. Osomatsu Matsuno
Mr. Osomatsu

5. Pikachu

4. Elizabeth

3. Koro-sensei
Assassination Classroom

2. Anpanman
Soreike! Anpanman

1. Doraemon

Which of these characters can you draw from memory? Any others come to mind?
