I stumbled upon another character I really like whose name is Nezumi (Rat in Japanese) in the anime No. 6. I then later found out the series was originally a novel, then turned into a manga, and then turned into the anime.
What I like about Nezumi is that he seems cold and is pretty tough, but he’s probably one of the kindest characters in the series. He was 12 when he escaped a prison-like area (Note: The series is dystopian), and survived even with a bullet wound thanks to the help of another 12-year-old boy named Sion. (Later in the series a four-year gap passes, and Sion and Nezumi meet again.) Nezumi also can sing and is a decent actor who sometimes acts at a theater under the stage name, Eve.
