Characters with names that start with the letter E are usually elegant & effortless, which reflects their popularity. There are many anime characters whose names start with the letter E who both come from well-liked anime series and are also beloved among fans.
Their popularity is almost on par with the letter L or M!
Let’s dive into the list of the 10 most popular anime characters whose names start with the letter E!
10. Eijirou Kirishima (BNHA)
Eijirou is a student at U.A. High School where he trains to become a Pro Hero.
He is a high-spirited and outgoing guy who is obsessed with manliness. He thinks highly of people who are strong-willed, courageous, and virtuous, and despises people who are the opposite of those qualities.
Eijirou’s Quirk is as manly as it gets: he has a hardening Quirk that allows him to harden his body. This comes with the benefits of having greatly increased durability and strength, making him a formidable ally.
09. Elaina (Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina)
Elaina is a young talented witch who used to lead a sheltered life before her training with the Stardust witch.
She is known for being quick-witted and self-conceited, and as the series progresses, she grows into a kinder and more sympathetic person.
08. Escanor (The Seven Deadly Sins)
The Lion’s Sin of Pride of the Seven Deadly Sins, Escanor is an OP warrior known as “The Strongest Holy Knight.” His powerful abilities come from an innate power called Sunshine that gives him the gift to call upon the Divine Axe Rhitta. A daytime skill, Escanor’s power wanes as the day transitions into night.
His hulking body and boastful personality transform at nighttime into a meekly middle-aged man. Escanor prefers the humble persona to that of his light-of-day “super Saiyan” identity. His agreeable nature suits him nicely as a bartender at both the My Sweet Gluttony and Boar Hat taverns.
07. Eru Chitanda (Hyouka)
Eru is one of the top students at Kamiyama High School and also the president of the Classical Literature Club where the members solve various mysteries.
She is a well-mannered, upbeat, and friendly girl who can come across as childlike because of her innocence and extreme curiosity.
When she becomes fascinated with some mysterious case, Eru becomes so determined and single-minded that she forgets about everything else until the case is solved!
06. Esdeath (Akame ga Kill)
This well-endowed beauty is a high-ranking general of the Empire.
I am sure you noticed how cold she looks with her ice-blue eyes and hair. Well, her personality is equally as cold.
Her core belief is that only the strong survive and the weak die, so she behaves accordingly.
She is powerful, confident, and disdainful, exactly as one would expect, and takes great pleasure in inflicting pain upon others. A true sadist!
05. Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)
Erza is an immensely powerful mage from the guild called Fairy Tail.
A natural-born leader, she has all qualities that align with it: she is self-confident and stern but also caring and protective. It’s also worth mentioning that she is hot and can hold her own against enemies who are as powerful (or even more) as she is. This is also the reason why she is the definition of a perfect waifu for many fans.
It only makes sense that she was chosen as the seventh guild master during the Alveraz arc.
04. Erwin Smith (AoT)
The Former Commander of the Survey Corps, Erwin is a bright, intelligent, and highly respected person both in his personal life and as a commander.
He had such a commanding and strong presence that he was able to motivate his subordinates to sacrifice themselves for the greater good, although he felt responsible and remorseful for it and often questioned his beliefs and ambitions.
03. Emilia (Re:Zero)
This September-born beauty is the main heroine of one of the most popular dark isekai series, Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World.
Emilia is a powerful half-elf girl with spirit affinity, which means that she can form contracts with various spirits. She is a magic and spirit arts user who managed to form a contract with the Great Spirit of Fire, Puck.
When you look at Emilia, she looks very pure and innocent which matches her personality. She is a kind and caring girl who gives without expecting anything in return. It doesn’t matter who or what she is against, she will never abandon the people she cares about.
Emilia is also one of the five candidates to lead the kingdom and is the love interest of the protagonist of the series.
02. Eren Yaeger (AoT)
Eren is one of the best anime characters when we consider his complexity and development.
He starts off as a stubborn, determined, and impulsive boy who hates Titans more than anything (I mean, who could blame him?). He deeply cares about his family and friends and is willing to do anything in order to save or protect them, even if it means getting badly injured or dying in the process.
His dream of killing every single Titan that is left starts materializing when he becomes a soldier for the Survey Corps, a branch of the Military most actively involved in direct Titan combat.
Eren is not particularly gifted in any area but it is through his resolve and hard work that he becomes a valuable asset to the Survey Corps. He also awakens a unique power that might be just the right answer to what has been happening around them for many centuries.
01. Edward Elric (FMA)
Among the anime characters with names that start with the letter E, there is one that stands out as the most popular: the golden boy from FMA.
Everyone can agree that selfless, kind, and helpful people are pleasant to be around it. Elric perfectly fits into that category.
He is trying his utmost to turn his brother back into a human and disregards his own discomfort and suffering to not make others worry about him.
Edward is also known for sticking to his beliefs and remaining true to himself no matter what hardships come his way.
Fans simply can’t get enough of him.
