Hacker from Akudama Drive

Hacker, or The Hacker, (voiced in Japanese by Shun Horie and in English by Y. Chang) is part of the main cast of the anime Akudama Drive, and one of the group of criminals or ‘Akudama’ that are key to the story.

None of the characters have much of an explained backstory, or a known name, so he simply just goes by Hacker. He’s true to his name in that aspect, as he takes great joy in interesting technological struggles that he’s able to force past, and gets bored easily when he can’t find something that interests him.

He has very messy blondish brown hair and one visible blue eye, while the other is covered by a glowing eyepatch. The outfit he wears is almost entirely body covering, with a long greyish white turtleneck shirt and a tailcoated blue jacket that he wears nearly open over it. His hair is partially covered by a hat that glows like his eyepatch and is the same color as his coat. Hacker also has a pair of black pants with a blue end piece covering them, and odd looking almost spat-like blue and black boots.

Wrath from Fullmetal Alchemist

Wrath (voiced in Japanese by Nana Mizuki and in English by Luci Christian) is a variation of the character that is exclusive to the 2003 adaptation of Fullmetal Alchemist, and is not found in the manga or in Brotherhood.

He is a being that came to be after Izumi Curtis tried to use alchemy to revive her baby, much in the same way the Elric brothers did, and it went just about as well. As a part of the group of Homunculi, he’s well suited to his name, becoming more and more like the title after consuming the stones.

Wrath has long, shaggy, blackish-brown hair and slitted violet eyes. He wears a similar outfit to Envy’s in style, once fully becoming a homunculus. It’s formed of a black crop turtleneck with a short, partial sleeve crop top over it, small matching shorts, and one foot cover/wrist cover respectively. There are red circular markings that start at mid-thigh and continue up past the bottom of the shirt, much like the ones the others have.

Rebecca from Cyberpunk: Edgerunners

Rebecca (voiced by Alex Cazares in English) is a character from Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.  Rebecca is a petite and sharp-tongued mercenary with a soft spot for David.  Rebecca has white skin adorned with pink tattoos.  Her clothing is minimal, including a black bra and underwear as well as an oversized jacket with matching boots and headband.  Plenty of cosplay sets exist for Rebecca, though you can also go the more interpretive route by wearing a black bikini with high tops and a bomber jacket.  Either way, you’ll want a mint-colored wig as well as pink body paint and a steady hand to recreate Rebecca’s body art and complete your look.

Ryunosuke Akutagawa from Bungo Stray Dogs

Akutagawa (voiced in Japanese by Kenshō Ono and in English by Brian Beacock) is one of the semi-antagonists turned reluctant part time good guy in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs.

Raised to fend for himself and his sister Gin on the streets, Akutagawa grew up with a great distrust for people, but also the need to be seen as worthwhile in the eyes of people he looked to for advice. The downside is this person was Dazai, so it left him with a rather large complex for constant approval after a while.

While mainly a part of the Port Mafia, through Dazai’s connections and in response to a larger growing threat concerning both them and the Armed Detective Agency, Akutagawa has been assigned to work with Atsushi under the title of Shin Soukoku (New Double Black). Neither of them are very happy with this, but they’re figuring it out.

Much like Atsushi, Akutagawa has rough, choppy hair, though his is pure black with white tips at the ends of the front bits. His eyes are a cool grey.

The outfit that he has is a bit special in terms of composition. While the base layer is a simple fancy ruffled shirt, black pants, and black shoes, the high collar black jacket he wears overtop acts as a conduit for his ability, Rashoumon. While it is not bound to that coat in particular, it is the one we generally see him use it with.

Atsushi Nakajima from Bungo Stray Dogs

Atsushi (voiced in Japanese by Yūto Uemura and in English by Max Mittelman) is the main character of the anime/manga series Bungo Stray Dogs.

Coming from a difficult and painful past in an orphanage, Atsushi is now a member of the Armed Detective Agency, able to use the power that he used to fear, when he was unaware of it. He is able to fully form-shift into a white tiger, which comes with superhuman healing, as well as the ability to semi-morph parts of his body, such as his limbs into clawed tiger paws while attacking.

He is one half of the Shin Soukoku (New Double Black) duo, assigned as such by Dazai, and works (reluctantly on both parts) in tandem with Akutagawa.

When he arrived from the orphanage, Atsushi was practically in rags, so the agency cobbled together an outfit for him. It consists of a white button up shirt, black mid-length pants, loose boots, and black suspenders, a tie, a belt with an extra long end to mimic a tail, and fingerless gloves. He has choppy greyish blonde hair with an occasionally visible black streak along the longer side, and purple-gold eyes.

Takato Matsuki from Digimon Tamers

She has long white hair on her left side and long red hair on the right, arranged as ponytails with circle braids at the ends.

Finnian (Finny) from Kuroshitsuji

Finnian, also called Finny, (voiced in Japanese by Yuuki Kaji, and in English by Jason Liebrecht) is one of the important side characters in the anime Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler.

Finny is the gardener of the Phantomhive estate, serving under Ciel Phantomhive, and often does things disastrously wrong. He was a scientific test subject before being rescued and hired on to Ciel’s service, and as such is uncommonly strong to the point of being nearly superhuman.

He has golden blonde hair, kept short and fluffy with five red hairclips holding the bangs out of his face, and his eyes are a tealy-green. The outfit he wears is the outfit he gardens in, a cream colored long-sleeve shirt with a red trim on all the hems and collar, with a set of goldenrod plaid capri pants, finished off with dark socks and gardening boots with a red trim to match the shirt. He also has a waist pouch for gardening shears, a set of white gardening gloves, and a sun hat, that does the dual purpose of protecting him from the sun, as well as hiding his test subject number.
