In this article, we will together discover the most popular anime characters whose names start with the letter J.
Various anime characters, including well-known ones like Johan Liebert (Monster), Juuzou Suzuya (Tokyo Ghoul), Jotaro Kujo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure), and many others were incorporated into the list. They serve as soldiers, investigators, jockeys, prisoners, marine biologists, and in a variety of other occupations.
This list of anime characters whose names start with the letter J is loosely sorted by popularity, according to MAL.
Let’s get started!
10. Jibril (No Game No Life)
My No Game No Life waifu can’t be overlooked. She is a stunning angel with immense knowledge who can chop off anyone’s head easily.
To clarify, she is the youngest and most powerful of the Flügel race. The Flügel were created as living weapons to defeat the old God in their world. After the war ended and new covenants were implemented, the race had no purpose and resorted to obtaining knowledge as their new life goal.
Oh, did I mention that she is also immortal, doesn’t age physically or mentally, is self-sustained, and is immune to literally every disease? Talk about OP.
9. Jean Kirstein (Attack on Titan)
When people talk about typical shounen protagonists, they imagine someone like Naruto Uzumaki. Someone who doesn’t have one bit of hesitation when it comes to fighting dangerous foes and who goes out of his way to help everyone even when they don’t deserve it. Then we have edgy characters like Sasuke Uchiha or wicked ones like Madara. But one thing to realize is that there is little to no realism to them even though they are fantastic. My point is that shounen male characters, whether supporting or main, usually face all challenges head-on and without fear.
Well, not Jean.
His initial reason for wanting to become a soldier was to live a comfortable life as part of The Military Police Brigade. But life doesn’t always go as planned. In the end, Jean joins The Survey Corps, a branch of the military involved in combating Titans outside the walls.
But what makes Jean so special? Well, he stands out from many other characters because he is bold and communicates his concerns like a real human would do. He accepts his fear without feeling ashamed of it. Jean certainly has had many internal conflicts but still managed to overcome them and became a reliable and good leader.
8. Jolyne Kuujou (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
The only female JoJo takes #8.
One of the first things I have to say is that she isn’t written or designed to be a typical kawaii anime girl or fit into any dere types. That is certainly refreshing.
Jolyne begins as a spoiled brat who places the blame for her issues on others. However, by the end, she develops into a strong, independent badass. She exhibits more development than any other JoJo, with the possible exception of Johnny, who exhibits a comparable degree of development.
7. Johnny Joestar (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
When I said that Jolyne has great character development, Johnny is in the same boat.
In comparison to other characters, he has the most complete personality, is exceptionally well-rounded, and reveals a darker side that feels more relatable.
Anyone who has ever reached their lowest point and then climbed out of it to achieve greatness can relate to this story. And those who haven’t can certainly take some life lessons from him. Johnny found the will to live and pulled himself out of depression. He demonstrates his fierce willpower to triumph and finds happiness.
6. Jousuke Higashikata (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
Fans often claim that they can easily relate to him the best as a person. Jousuke is an average teenage person who takes each day as it comes, pulls the occasional stupid prank, strives to get rich quickly so he can purchase cool new shoes, and picks fights with his mother.
His affable demeanor helps him make friends easily as he is both kind-hearted and loyal.
5. Jin-woo Sung (Solo Leveling)
Jin-woo was formerly a very weak E-Rank Hunter, but when he was chosen as the Player of the System, he was given the chance of a lifetime and was given the power to grow stronger without limits. As a result, Jin-woo becomes so overpowered that he is considered the strongest hunter in the world.
The best thing is that he still remains humble, good-natured, and family-focused, even after unlocking this potential.
4. Juuzou Suzuya (Tokyo Ghoul)
This uniquely looking boy is Juuzou Suzuya, a Special Class Ghoul Investigator.
He is known for having a seemingly uncaring demeanor, however, he has emotions just like everyone else. Juuzou spent years being tormented and mistreated by a ghoul. It’s not surprising that he is cruel to ghouls and doesn’t have even an ounce of empathy toward them.
However, he matures throughout the series and his emotional blockage is cleared after someone dear to him is seriously injured.

3. Johan Liebert (Monster)
Johan Liebert is considered to be one of the greatest anime antagonists of all time. He is like Joker or Hannibal Lecter of the anime world.
He ranks highly among fans because of both his charisma and mystique. Johan also perfectly fits the story, and the storyline is a masterpiece, so that counts as well.
2. Jotaro Kujo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
Fans often say that while they don’t think that Jotaro is the best character, he is the most iconic JoJo.
He starts as a teen who is enraged and doesn’t know how to express that anger other than through violent outbursts and being aggressive. He basically goes from being a jerk to maturing as a character throughout the parts.
It should also be noted that Jotaro is a socially awkward geek disguised as a badass. All of his one-liners were obviously much funnier in his mind; they were a nerdy kid’s attempts to appear cool.
1. Joseph Joestar (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
Among anime characters with names that start with J, Joseph Joestar is the most popular.
He is best known for being smart and hilarious, plus he has renowned one-liners and a fighting spirit. Even when he faces a certain defeat, he manages to keep his composure and push on.
Joseph’s transformation from an impulsive teenager to a responsible person gives us hope that we may all evolve.
