If you have read MHA, or are looking for a My Hero Academia character who is obssessed cleaniness, take a closer look at Chisaki Kai. Chisaki from My Hero Academia is not necessarily clean in the sense that you might think. He’s not going to spend his time scrubbing toilets or ensuring that every surface is clean. However, he is known to be extremely germaphobic.

What he does is wear surgical gloves (and a plague mask) at all times. It gives him an additional sense of protection from the germs in the world. He is very clean as far as his personal hygiene goes, which might give you the inspiration needed to make sure that your personal space is as clean as Chisaki hopes to be.

Immortal Tatsu (The way of the househusband)

If you like to read Yakuza manga or watch anime Yakuza as it is known, then you are no doubt familiar with the Immortal Dragon himself. If you think of a househusband, you will think first of the Immortal Tatsu from the manga ‘The way of the househusband’. He was once one of the most feared warriors alive but now he is a dutiful husband.

Part of his new role means keeping a clean home. Instead of slaying enemies, he slays germs with vigor like no other. You can be like the Immortal Dragon in a lot of ways, though you too will be slaying germs instead of foes. There’s nothing wrong with that.

Rem (Re:Zero)

Watching Re:Zero episodes and taking notes from Re:Zero characters can provide all the inspiration that you need. After all, you are cleaning for a reason just like Rem does on Re:Zero. But without the one big twist.

You don’t have to wear the same maid outfit that Rem wears to get the job done. Those tend to leave less for the imagination. Besides, they aren’t exactly the most comfortable thing to wear while cleaning, either. With whatever outfit you choose, you can draw inspiration to clean just like these beloved characters.


Keeping a clean space may not be the most fun thing in the world, but when you are done, you will feel a sense of pride in knowing that the job was done well. Besides, having a clean space means being able to find things more easily and losing things a lot less.

With your favorite anime characters as an inspiration, it then becomes easier to get all that cleaning done. Before you know it, your space will be cleaner than ever before and you will be ready to enjoy your time – and clean space – without it weighing on your mind.
