Name: Hak Son
Anime: Akatsuki no Yona
Voiced By: Tomoaki Maeno
Alias: Thunder Beast

Background: He is the former chief and general of the Wind Tribe. He is famously known as Thunder Beast for his fighting skills that was said to be unrivalled by anyone, earning him the title of the strongest soldier in the kingdom.

Reason for CotM: I feel like a single character can really turn an anime around for me. In this case it was Hak. It isn’t that I don’t like Akatsuki no Yona, but I can definitely say that I wouldn’t like it as much if it weren’t for him. He’s not only a very loyal, badass character, he’s also compassionate and has a sense of humor. As the anime progresses he’s showing great levels of character development that could really be a decision maker during the review.

Name: Twelve
Anime: Zankyou no Terror
Voice By: Soma Saito
Background: Twelve is a young man with a child-like innocence who treats Nine like a big brother. Twelve goes to the same high school as Nine and works alongside him.
Reason for CotM: Twelve was probably my favorite of the dynamic duo. He was cool, dark, and eccentric. He showed the human side of these terrorists because of his interaction with Lisa.  While he found delivering a message important, Twelve never lost sight of why. We will never forget you Nine and Twelve.
Name: Umetarou Nozaki
Anime: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
Voice By: Yuuichi Nakamura
Occupation: Mangaka

Background: Umetarou is the high school student that is the object of Chiyo Sakura's affection. He is secretly a manga artist named Sakiko Yumeno, the creator of the shoujo manga "Let's Love~". This manga is published in the magazine called Monthly Shoujo Romance. Despite making a romance-oriented manga, he has no personal experience in love, and his story ideas are often ridiculous and farfetched. He appreciates Chiyo's drawing ability but is oblivious to her feelings.
Reason for CotM: Yet another character from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun so soon? Well what can I say? The anime is top notch and it’s all thanks to the vast number of likable characters. One of them being the great Nozaki himself. He’s absolutely amazing and the latest two episodes made me fall in love with him more. His calm, stoic nature makes his weird one liners even funnier. Nozaki’s complete obliviousness to romance and need to unique in the shoujo world makes for some of the best laughs in anime.
