Anime characters who smoke cigarettes

Sanji, also known as Blackleg Sanji the assigned chef of the notorious Straw hat pirates crew is known not only for his exceptional/mouth-watering cooking skills but for his habit of smoking all the time.

 Sanji attracts fans with his unique fighting style of using only his legs because he doesn’t want to dirty his hands which are meant for cooking. A lot of people condemn him for being a heavy smoker despite being a chef but not using his hands to fight is proof enough that he is a man of principle when it comes to cooking. 

Trying to find a picture where Sanji isn’t smoking is as impossible as Zoro finding his way back after getting lost. 

If you make a list of characters who smoke the most Sanji will surely Ace the list. The anime character who smokes the most is Sanji. Here are smoking anime characters that can hold a candle to Sanji: 

1. Asuma Sarutobi(Naruto)- Who even smoked during his last moments

Asuma is the leader of Team 10 comprising Ino(the bossy girl), Shikamaru(the slacker), Choji(the big eater) (ino-shika-cho).

Asuma was a laid-back individual with no big ambitions in life. He loved smoking so much that even during his last moments his last wish was to have a farewell smoke.

His father(the 3rd Hokage) was a heavy smoker himself so I guess he picked it up from his father(like father like son) I suppose.

Some other notable One Piece characters who can’t hold a candle to Sanji in smoking:

  • Smoker
  • Crocodile
  • Paulie
Through this article, I am not trying to glorify the anime characters that smoke. That’s not my intention in the slightest. These anime characters have the luxury to smoke their hearts out. But that’s a luxury that we can’t afford cause we aren’t Anime characters. 
“The more you smoke 
   The more it smokes your life out
   Say No to smoking
   Smoke out the habit of smoking” 

Stay in school, smoking is not cool
