People call that an anime pfp or to make it longer it’s an anime profile picture. If that’s still not clear enough for you and you still have confusions regarding what an anime pfp is and why do people use it, then I suggest for you to keep on reading.


So, we all know that anime is considered to be a specific style of cartoon and not only the younger generations are watching it now to make themselves entertained, but also the older generations.


But, we can’t ignore the fact that there’s some people, mostly in the older generations, who aren't quite familiar with the term ‘Anime Pfp’.



So, what exactly is Anime Pfp?


Anime pfp, is a short term for anime profile picture and most of the people use it to express their love or admiration towards their favorite character. When someone close to you makes an anime character their profile picture, it just simply means that they have really taken interest in that character or they find it appealing or suitable for their profile. It’s actually interesting that it gives you an idea from which generation a person is just basing from their profile pictures. People either find the character they placed in their profiles cute, cool or funny, mostly the funny profile pictures can be considered as memes.


Another question is, why do people use anime as their profile picture?


This is pretty simple, when we like a certain character in an anime series or movies, some people have the urge to make the anime characters their profile picture, because of the character’s personality or their looks that may be funny looking or appealing to the eyes. I actually have experienced this myself and until now I still use Yami Sukehiro from Black Clover as my profile picture, it’s because I really find him appealing to look at and I see him as a very cool character in the series.


Also, people use anime as their profile pictures to match it with their partner or to the people close to them. Whether it’s a funny or sweet looking profile, it’s just a way of them expressing their close relationship and interests to those people and of course the characters. Though, there are actually quite a lot of people who make anime as their pfp without knowing who that character is and which anime series or movies it’s from. This is totally fine, avoid judging others just because of that. Isn’t it great they found those characters appealing to the eyes that they made it their profile picture?


Another reason why people use anime as their profile picture is for aesthetics, who wouldn’t want an anime profile picture that exactly matches their aesthetic right? An example of that is this softcore anime profile picture of Kusuo Saiki from The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.


Now that you know what an anime pfp is and why people use it. Maybe it’s time for you to choose your next anime icon or profile picture.
