5 Literature Anime Characters

1. Dracula

Vampires have been a popular trope since the original vampire writer Bram Stoker published his book, Dracula, in 1897. Movies like Dracula, Interview with a Vampire, True Blood and more are still popular these days. Today adaptations to anime such as Castlevania, Hellsing, and Phantom in the Twilight depict the king of vampires in their own unique way.

2. King Arthur

The Sword in The Stone is a popular animated film in which we meet a boy named Arthur who is the rightful leader of a kingdom with the help of a wizard named Merlin. King Arthur is another popular character portrayed by many movies and TV shows. Knightood, fantasy and dragons come from this character.

While most of the characters are portrayed as male, adaptations to anime such as Fate/Stay Night make a literary female King Arthur in the form of Saber. Other animes such as The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, Seven Deadly Sins and Sword Art Online stuck with literary male King Arthur.

3. Snow White

Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales are known to be portrayed in the media to have happy endings, but most people know that the original is not fun. Snow White is not an exception to this story. In the Disney animated film, Snow White and The Seven Dwarves, the Queen only died on screen when she fell into a cliff.

In the original version, the prince decided to punish the Queen by making her wear very hot iron shoes and ordering her to dance until she fell and died. So far, the only anime with Snow White as a character is Akagami no Shirayuki-hime. In this anime, instead of Snow White’s iconic ebony hair, we get a Fiery Crimson hair by Snow White.

4. The Count of Monte Cristo

Revenge is a driving motive for many characters in anime, movies and tv shows. A popular Count of Monte Cristo tv adaptation is Revenge where a young woman retaliates against people who are wrongly confined and kills her father. Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo is the only known anime adaptation at the moment. It has a representation of LGBTQIA, extraterrestrial characters and a fun depiction of The Count of Monte Cristo.

5. Sherlock

The greatest detective in the world has attracted old and young fans who are similar in many movie and tv adaptations. A popular show named Sherlock starred Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character and his performance inspired many fans to read the original book. Today, adaptations to anime such as Moriarty the Patriot, Black Butler, Holmes of Kiyoto and many other detectives show hope to inspire young viewers to read about the original greatest detective.

Literary characters make an impact on what we like to watch.
