Prachi's been watching anime as long as she's living. For her, it's a perfect getaway to cherish the world where everything's possible.

Ouji-sama refers to a princely male character in an anime. He demands respect from everyone around him. He is confident, highly revered, well-groomed, and conceited to an extent. He always seems to have an attractive personality and loathe those who are clumsy and less sophisticated. To support the qualities, here are the ten best ouji-sama characters that you won’t ever forget:
