Undeniable Proof That Those Who Wear Glasses in Anime Are Evil

March 9, 2015 Nafuyaka 1 Comment

While in real life, glasses are typically reserved for those with failing eyesight, in the anime world, they are a symbol of destruction, manipulation, and evil. You don’t have to look hard to notice this simple truth within just about any anime in existence. Glasses are less of a cosmetic feature and more of a core plot point. Not to mention that here would be absolutely no reason for these fictionally anime characters to wear glasses unless it is vital to the plot.


This picture accurately illustrates the inner working of an anime character that wears glasses.

When you think about it, when designing a character, arbitrary traits just do not exist. If someone has messy hair, it’s to signify their personality. The character’s hair styles are no stylistic choice. Everything happens for a reason, and this is especially true in the anime universe. Putting glasses on an anime character makes them appear more menacingly, which is a core trait of an evil character. Simply put, it makes complete sense to give evil characters glasses, and zero sense not to.


This pose is the universal symbol of evil, followed by the All Seeing Illuminati Eye as a close second.

Astigmatism doesn’t exist in the anime world. Eye retinal decay is not defined as an natural occurrence within the anime universe. While the rules of anime are similar to reality, they are only mocking reality and do not obey all the same rules that we do. Anime characters do not eat, unless it is part of the plot. Anime characters do not drink, unless it is part of plot. They do not have to eat or drink at all to survive, unless it is part of the plot. In fact, when anime characters are not on-screen, they do not exist. No one is drawing their life outside the frame, and no one is writing their story outside that frame. It’s better to understand that anything outside the current anime frame just does not happen. So, if anime characters wear glasses, there is a reason behind it, and that reason is because they are evil!


Who could forget this character, who, surprise, surprise, turned out to be pure evil!

There are many examples within numerous anime that support this fact, including:

  • Kyoukai no Kanata (above)
  • Log Horizon
  • Sword Art Online
  • Fairy Tail
  • Death Note
  • One Piece
  • Naruto
  • Attack on Titan
  • Tokyo Ravens
  • Steins;Gate
  • Psycho-Pass
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • Pokemon

And that’s just to name a few!


This picture needs absolutely no explanation.

Don’t be fooled by those glasses. If you see a nice anime character wearing glasses, be prepared for that inevitable 180 that they’ll pull when you least expect it! Keep in mind that their vision is fine! They don’t need glasses to see, and they don’t even choose to wear them. But they are marked by those glasses as a symbol of evil. The clues of evil are right there, hiding in plain sight. It’s up to you to heed the warning of the megane. If you don’t, the consequences will be severe.

is an anime addict bordering on insanity. Out of all the shows currently airing this season, Nafukaya is watching every show but the mecha ones, quoting, "Mecha is easily the worst genre of anime in existence." And if you give it a little thought, it's kind of true.
