If you ask me who is my favorite male anime character right now, I would definitely give you the same answer since I was in grade school – Li Syaoran of Cardcaptor Sakura.
Li Syaoran hails from Hong Kong. The successor of the powerful Li clan, his family consists of his mother, his four sisters and Wei (I count him here because he basically raised Syaoran through the years). He went to Japan to get the Clow cards but falls in love with the enemy 😛
He looks tough on the outside. Yes, he might have been a bit harsh to Sakura at first. But this guy has values, dreams and a loving soul.
