However, Shinra claims to have no love for humanity. He shows an obsession with the supernatural, particularly Celty’s body and Shizuo’s strength, and he loves to attempt to understand and explain them.

Rintaro Okabe From Steins;Gate

Okabe is a melodramatic, eccentric and rarely tsundere individual. He is a self-proclaimed mad anime scientist, who likes to assume the nickname “Kyouma Hououin”, and often uses this to introduce himself to others.

For the most part, people do not seem to care and instead address him by his actual name or by ‘Okarin’ (his nickname), much to his chagrin. This makes him slightly hypocritical.

Due to the fact that there is essentially no-one he calls by their real names, and he in particular calls Kurisu a number of names that irritate her to varying degrees.

2. Senku From Dr. Stone

Senku From Dr. Stone

Senku is a straight-forward, confident and highly logical individual who can come off as arrogant like every other anime scientist. Even so, his borderline-overconfidence does not cloud his judgment, as he is often backed up by his superior and vast knowledge of science.

Senku never belittles those who are less knowledgeable than him. Rather, he encourages and inspires everyone around him to do better. Because of his charisma and caring nature, people tend to gather around him, both allies and supporters alike.

However, he can act over-the-top at times when he is excited over a creation or at the discovery of something new. Despite his usual appearance brimming with confidence and determination, Senku is not above berating himself, such as when Kohaku noticed the North Star being slightly off its location while he didn’t assume so from the amount of time that has passed being petrified.

1. Kisuke Urahara From Bleach

Kisuke Urahara From Bleach

Though usually a laid-back, optimistic, jovial, pleasant and eccentric anime scientist, Urahara shows a deceptively cunning and serious side when the situation warrants it. He commonly uses idle conversation and outward concern to distract his opponents. 

Despite his care-free attitude, he always speaks politely, but is sometimes sarcastic. Yoruichi Shihōin notes he tends to go over the top with whatever he becomes passionate about. He has described himself as a “mere honest, handsome, perverted businessman.

Approximately 110 years ago, Urahara’s personality was slightly opposite of what it is in the present. During his earlier years as a captain, he was viewed as a nervous, flustered, and quiet person.

Somewhat unsure of himself, he lacked confidence in his ability to be a good leader. In addition, he was occasionally confused with how to deal with his division.
