Let's talk two cat boy anime characters here - these two feline guys are Aion, the lead guitarist of the band, and Rom, the panther drummer of the band in this series. Aion often refers to himself "The Dark Sun God", or "Black Monster," and always holds himself in a regal manner, posing with a hand slightly covering his mouth most of the time. He is the older brother of Ailane and is a pale grey lion with red eyes and a brown nose. His mane-like hair is white to match the tuft of fur on his tail. He wears a black trench-coat with black pants and boots. In Demon form, his eyes gain more detail and the sclera turns black.

By contrast, Rom is a leopard with dark red schlera and dark blue pupils. His body type is hoso macho and he wears a furry leopard-print vest, black spiked wristbands, a necklace, and brown pants with a belt. His hair is spiked and sticks up. In energy form his vest turns grey, while in soldier form he wears a green vest with several pockets and matching green pants. His eyes also gain a glow to them. He may be a loud and cocky individual but Rom is generally the person who pulls his bandmates back together when they wander off.

11. Rokumon From Circle of Reincarnation

Anime guys with cat ears
One of the cutest cats in anime, Rokumon is the black cat that poses as a familiar to Rinne, as well as his guide and aide. This is forged as a part of a contract between the two. Rokumon is very loyal to both Rinne and Tamako, addressing Rinne as "Rinne-sama". He does what he can to help Rinne with his expenses, but sometimes his methods are a bit extreme; once, he tried to injure a large mass of students just so they would make donations to the weather hutch. His intentions are good, though, however misguided his actions aren't.

Rokumon has three known forms: humanoid, demon, and kitten. In each form, he retains his black fur and green eyes. His regular humanoid form is a small, black, bipedal cat with a human face. In his demon form, he is a giant cat head with a trail of clouds behind him. He can also transform into a small adorable kitten, which he often does, primarily to gain food!

10. Hiroshi Inaba From Cuticle Tantei

Anime guys with cat ears
Inaba Hiroshi is known for his iconic red, spiky hairstyle. He has an enormous strand of hair in the centre, with two locks of hair falling along the edges of his head, outlining his face. The remainder of his hair falls freely and you can’t fail to notice his eminent cushy feline ears that ascent on the highest point of his head. He is a result of the hereditarily modified joined qualities of a human and a wolf, hence why he has the characteristics of a Neko Boy! Besides his appearances, he is really an investigator and he acquires data and proof from his cases by analysing and tasting individuals’ hair, and indeed, in light of such capacities, he has fostered a hair obsession.

9. Boris Airay From Wonderful Wonder World

Anime guys with cat ears
Somewhat based on the Cheshire Cat, Boris is a cat anime guy who lives in the Amusement Park. True to character, he is usually seen with a cynical smile and loves riddles. Whenever he sees Pierce he gets hungry and will chase him with a knife and fork. Mischevious and mysterious in equal parts, he can jump through doors from one point to the next and can even create his own doors. He can habitually be seen with the twins’ Dee and Dum. He has fuchsia pink hair that match with his striped fur scarf and his tail, which possibly is based on the color of the Cheshire Cat from the 1951 adaption of Alice in Wonderland, and has yellow eyes with black tattooed points under them.

8. Aoyagi From Loveless

The main protagonist of the manga and anime series, Loveless. Ritsuka's "true" name is Loveless, although it has yet to appear on his body like the names of other fighter and sacrifice pairs. He is twelve years of age and the hero of the story. Ristuka often takes photographs or "makes memories" because of his fear of forgetting people and being forgotten. In the anime we discover this may be due to Ristuka losing his memory at age ten, possibly due to his difficult background and abuse by his mother. He has many different sides to his character, which makes him fascinating to watch.

7. Loki From Fairy Tail

Anime guys with cat ears
The leader of the 12 Golden Zodiac Keys and revealed to be the celestial spirit Leo in the anime, he is known as the Lion and is based on a lion, with auburn mane like hair and matching feline ears. We meet him as he is under the order of a heavenly soul mage named Karen Lilica. As a Celestial Spirit, his teeth are sporadically portrayed as being sharp, in reference to his lion theme. Loki's hazel eyes are almost always covered by a pair of azure-tinted sunglasses with a thin frame, with one of the only instances in which he was shown without them being during his time as Karen Lilica's Celestial Spirit. While in his human form, his left ear is adorned by three earrings: initially, he bore a stud and two rings; later on, he was instead shown donning two studs and a flower-shaped earring. His green Fairy Tail stamp is located on his back. Furthermore, he is flirtatious and takes any opportunity to make a move on Lucy, but also has many female fans lusting after him!

6. Cheshire Cat From Pandora Hearts

Anime guys with cat ears
Another Cheshire Cat anime character is this anime cat guy who also looks like a human type of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Cheshire was really Alice’s pet cat from 100 years prior, in this dark anime twist on Alice in Wonderland. Cheshire shows love and companionship throughout the manga and anime towards Alice, even up to the point where he would kill her or at attempt to kill her in order to prevent her from finding painful memories, Cheshire's death causing Alice great pain - especially the White Alice aka the Will of Abyss he was fond of - not the Black Alice. 

5. Kyo Sohma From Fruits Basket

Anime guys with cat ears
One of the deuteragonists of the Fruits Basket series, he is the adoptive son of Kazuma Sohma, whom he was taken in by after the death of his mother and the rejection from his biological father. Kyo is cursed by the spirit of the Cat, an animal who would have been part of the Chinese Zodiac had the Rat not tricked him into missing the ceremony. An irregular member of the Zodiac, not only is Kyo discriminated against, disrespected, and has a future of confinement, he also has a true form which is a grotesque and foul-smelling monster— which he turns into when his Juzu bead bracelet is removed. He has blamed all of his misfortunes on his greatest enemy, the Rat, Yuki Sohma, and has dedicated his life to defeat him. Charismatic and hot-blooded, if a bit socially awkward, Kyo moves into Shigure Sohma's house with Yuki and Tohru Honda at the beginning of the series. As the story progresses, Kyo falls in love with Tohru, and little by little, his heart heals by finding true love in her. In the process, he finds the courage to live on despite his guilt, misgivings, and hardships. He is handsome and charming, with matching auburn hair and eyes.

4. Schrodinger From Hellsing

Anime guys with cat ears
Usually found sitting near the Major's throne like a pet, this anime cat boy also acts as an envoy for Millennium. His relationship with The Major is very different than most of the soldiers commanded by him. The Major seems to emit a sense of affection for Schrödinger, akin to the relationship of a cat owner who could never be angry towards him. Due to his ability to be "everywhere and nowhere" at the same time, he has proved to be a useful spy and messenger for Millennium's forces. He can be comical and lighthearted but possesses a sinister air about him and has a streak of cruelty appropriate for the evil organisation he is a part of.

3. Kai and Riku From Show by Rocks!!

Riku and Kai are twins that play an important role in the band Trichonika, along with their singer, Shu☆Zo. The two twins are feline like in appearance with pink noses. Riku has blue-green eyes and blue hair while Kai has dull indigo to coordinate with his blue, spiky hair and tail. Riku’s hair is longer than his sibling, Kai and they both boast the same huge cat like ears that protrude from the top of their heads.

2. Kuro From Servamp

Anime guys with cat ears
The Servamp of Sloth, he is the oldest of the eight Servamps and transforms into a black cat when exposed to sunlight. In his human form, Kuro has shaggy icy blue hair, crowned with black cat ears and wears a cool demon jacket. He is definitely one of the coolest looking anime cat guy characters - or cat human hybrid characters in anime! His eye color is red and he is depicted as having bags underneath his eyes, illustrating his bored, weary and sleepy state he can usually be found in. However, for his good looks and laissez faire attitude, Kuro is still one of the hottest vampire anime guys. The embodiment of 'laissez faire', Kuro spends most of his time sleeping and laying around, avoiding all responsibility and any confrontations that may emerge (me). It's worth noting that in the anime he refuses to drink blood and finds it difficult to come to terms with what he is.

1. Tsukiyomi Ikuto From Shugo Chara!

Anime guys with cat ears
The main character of this series, Ikuto compunds everything it means to be a neko anime character in one shaggy blue haired human feline form. He possesses many qualities of a stray cat, being enigmatic, aloof, stoic and a little naughty, much like an alley cat. He can also be sweet and kind. He likes teasing people, especially Amu and Tadase. Ikuto is selfless and protective, thus, he is willing to distance himself from those he cares in order to protect them and stop them from getting embroiled in his own troubles. This explains why he kept himself away from Utau after she allies with the Guardians. He is such an iconic and memorable cat boy anime character and is everything we think of when we imagine a male cat character in anime.
