The coolest protagonists star in these anime. 

Anime is the perfect medium to have a cool main protagonist. The two main attributes that can make a character cool is either their style or how badass they can be. Anime’s use of art instead of real life footage lets the creator perfect every aspect of the character's style. They can create outfits and body features that might otherwise look odd. Anime can also exaggerate the badass moments when it depicts action. In animated fights, characters do not have to maintain their original appearance, animators can enlarge parts of their body and draw in different styles to add emphasis to the most important blows. So if you are looking for a cool main character, anime is the perfect place to find it.
