Mark your calendars: June 27 is the official holiday "Sunglasses Day."
These snazzy spectacles are useful not only for blocking glare and UV rays. They also increase anyone's "coolness" factor by 39%. (Just ask Snoopy.)
In the anime world, sunglasses are even more amazing because they often have to shade such GINORMOUS eyes.

Top 5 Anime Sunglasses
#5 - Jet Black (Cowboy Bebop)
Jet goes to show that sunglasses are multifunctional - useful for welding or cooking.
#4 - Renji Abarai (Bleach)
Soul Society Division 6's lieutenant is a rebel. And we know that because he's got tattoos and wears stuff on his noggin--whether a white headband or the much cooler visor sunglasses.
#3 - Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo (Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo)
Sunglasses probably aren't the first thing that come to mind when you see this hero, with his boffo blond Afro and powerful Hanage Shinken (Fist of the Nose Hair). But Bo x 7's beauty lies in his final accessory--shades that scream justice against the forces of baldness.
#2 - Roger Smith (The Big O)
How cool is Roger Smith? You means besides the fact that he's got a mansion, butler, android assistant, sweet ride, and giant robot?
Roger's so cool that he wears sunglasses in Paradigm City, a place that makes Seattle look like Miami. Fake dome suns or no, Paradigm City's top negotiator shows that even the coolest can get cooler.
#1 - Tie: Vash the Stampede (Trigun) and Alucard (Hellsing)
Sunglasses = hero
Sunglasses = anti-hero
Vash and Alucard share more than near immortality, nigh invulnerability, and incomparable combat skills. They also sport the same specs.
You can, too, if you shell over a few hundred bucks. Check it out:
