10 playlists dedicated to anime characters to fuel your fantasies

What makes an anime great? 

Sometimes you get so sucked into the world of an anime that you feel like you’re a part of the story, being one of the characters or… being with one of the characters… 

You feel like you know the characters so well that some songs just feel so like them. You may have heard of making playlists for your crush, but have you ever heard of making playlists dedicated to your favorite anime characters? Well, it’s pretty much the same thing. 

Check out these playlists inspired by anime characters (in some very specific scenarios) and transcend into the fantasy where you’re in their arms and everything’s okay. 

1. studying with tsukishima kei (Haikyu!!

studying with tsukishima kei Haikyu!! playlist

Tsukishima’s abilities as a blocker are continuously developing… just like your feelings for him? Have a productive night in and co-work with the Tsukishima Kei.  

The creator of this particular playlist has actually gone quite ham with their playlists made for characters within and outside of the Karasuno team. Some of their other playlists include (but are not limited to): the first time oikawa tooru said i love you, riding a bike with bokuto koutarou, and kiyoko shimizu’s girl crush.


2. fueling your superiority complex with gojou satoru (Jujutsu Kaisen)

Jujutsu Kaisen Spotify playlist

Do special grade jujutsu sorcerers make for good lovers? Maybe, maybe not, but they definitely make for the perfect hype crew.


3. eren jeager i’m sorry u deserve better (Attack on Titan)

Attack on Titan Spotify playlist

Eren Jeager you deserve better… maybe you deserve… me?


4. chill gaming session with hirotaka nifuji (Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku)

Love is hard whether or not you’re an otaku, might as well imagine your gaming with one to ease the single lonesomeness.


5. walking in the sky with keigo takami by your side (My Hero Academia)

My Hero Academia

Regine Velasquez once sung that “the only way to fly is on the wings of love”. Did she mean on the wings of Keigo Takami? 


6. pov: you’re dating shoto todoroki (My Hero Academia)

My Hero Academia playlist shoto todoroki

#1 Hero… sa puso mo. Listen to this playlist the next time you eat noodles (pretend it’s soba) and just like that, you’re on a date with Todoroki.


7. yuki yoshikawa’s secret playlist (Horimiya: Hori-san to Miyamura-kun)

yuki yoshikawa secret playlist

For those sad hours when you just can’t seem to ask for what you want. 


8. dear miyamura izumi, (Horimiya: Hori-san to Miyamura-kun)

Hori: Looks like a cinnamon roll, could actually kill you. 

Miyamura: Looks like they could kill you, is actually a cinnamon roll.


9. mitsuya pick you for midnight ride (Tokyo Revengers)

Tokyo Revengers

With this playlist you can pretend that you’re the star of the classic 2014 film She’s Dating the Gangster, but switch out Kathniel for you and… an animated character…


10. staying up all night with sano manjiro “mikey” (Tokyo Revengers)

Cue Britney Spears singing “mama I’m in love with a criminal”. 

If you didn’t see your beloved character in this list, you’ll probably be able to find a playlist made for them if you look hard enough (sometimes even without having to look too hard). And anyways, if you don’t find any of them to your liking, why not try your hand in curating your own playlist and fulfilling your fantasy through the magic of music.
