Use Anisearch To Find Your Anime Twin
Anisearch is a website that focuses on helping people find anime related stuff by hosting a nice anime character database. You can use it to find anime that look like you easily.
On anisearch, we need to go to its anime > characters tab and then to the page’s index to start our search. Our goal is to filter its list of characters according to the characteristics previously listed to find the most similar character to us possible. So, we will begin by using the “basic” filters first.
Here we will have the section of essential characteristics for an anime character: Age range, hair-colour, eye-colour. When we click on the apply button, our list of options will appear. But it is very long. Unfortunately, finding physically similar characters to us is not easy on the page, as it does not have many filters for physical features. But what it has is a filter for anime personality archetypes.
To do this, we will change from “basic” filters to filter by “tags,” and we will go to its last section. There we will select the most outstanding aspect of our personality. We will click again on “Apply” and bingo!
Now we will not only have an anime character similar to us physically but also in their personality traits.
Use Anime Planet To Find Your Anime Look Alike
Anime Planet is the biggest anime character database available online. Being one of the most popular anime search engines used on the internet, it keeps adding more functions to its platform. Above all, standing out in having way more precise filters with a more extensive library of characters than the previously presented website. To find that character similar to you, we must go to the tab characters > browse all characters.
This is where we will use three filter categories: Gender, hair, and tags.
In the first two sections, we will write the obvious thing that they ask us, but in the third category of filters is where it gets interesting. Interesting due to the large number of feature tags that this section of the platform has. Guide yourself from your previously noted list of key characteristics. This way, you won’t be aimlessly navigating between the tags.
ANIME PLANET will drop a list of characters with photo, name, tags that include the ones you used to filter their list of characters and the name of the anime they belong to. And it doesn’t stop there. Because if we click on the name or photo of the character, we can find on its file the position it has in the ranking of the most loved characters in anime and also the place it has among the most hated characters. In my case, I ended up finding a character incredibly similar to me. How scary!
Tips For Anime Characters Search
There are some tricks to using tools like an anime character database, anime character lists to find anime.
Learn How To Find Anime By Tags
Learn to find anime by tags [LINK]. Do not enter all the extra tags after the essential physical appearance traits that both sites propose to you. Add tags and filter little by little. Using a huge amount of filters can result in poor results, because a single anime character may not have all the characteristics listed. Keep adding and testing, starting with your most important extra features and adding more anime tags as you see fit.
Don’t Just Google
This time the Google search engine will not be of much help. Because the maximum that it will be able to offer you are anime-style character pictures, some from series and others that do not belong to any. And it results in useless efforts due to this low precision. Finding anime by image, by using reverse image search will be quite useless as well.
The “Find Your Anime Look Alike” Quizzes Might Not Help
The anime quizzes that you can find about “Find out what anime character you are” are not an accurate source of results due to the small number of characters inserted as possible results and the not very useful range of questions that should be filtering out the anime characters.

I guess, the most exciting thing now would be to watch the anime to which your character twin belongs to see how is the world to which they belong and the role they play in the plot.
