Of course, since I’ve always said I suck at making top whatever lists, I decided to make a list but without the numbering again!
Well, I kind of apologise since this is a rushed post because I lost track of days ever since this “circuit breaker” thing started here in Singapore.
Before I begin, let me just say that this list will be rather unconventional and won’t have your standard choices such as L, Light, Near (Death Note), Makishima, Kogami (Psycho Pass), Lelouch (Code Geass), Norman (The Promised Neverland) etc.
Everyone in this list will be from slice of life anime where not much really happens and there’s no real geniuses with some grand master-plan to overthrow society or anything.
Anyways, let’s just start off with Nakamura Kazuhiro from “Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy“
While being a hopeless Chuunibyou who believes that he is but a reincarnation of his past self and claims that he was born from the forbidden union of an angel and a demon in his past life, he is revealed to be relatively smart academically.
Next off, we have a genius who spends her time with an idiot and other… interesting classmates, Robo (her nickname) from “Wasteful Days of Highschool Girls“
She’s constantly looking after micro organisms and seems to be interested in looking for a human test subject for experiments…
Following her, we have a hopeless otaku who spends her days at home idling away and yet somehow seems to be rather academically smart.
It’s none other than Umaru-chan from “Himouto! Umaru-chan“
While she may be hopelessly lazy at home, she is a model student at school. The exact opposite of the next anime character, Sugisaki Ken from “Seitokai no Ichizon“
This guy is always fooling around in the student council room where he’s treated as a joke of a harem wannabe. At the same time, he’s the only one in the student council who’s there purely due to his academic ability.
Now this is a bonus because I wasn’t sure whether or not to include these two who might be seen as obvious choices by some but of course we have the student council president and vice-president from “Kaguya-sama Love is War”
Need I explain this?
Well, that’s all I have for today.
Honestly, I do have quite a few other nominations but let me know in the comments if you’d be interested in another post listing characters that might be smarter than you!
