AUG Akihabara Accept: Best Anime Skin
AUG Akihabara Accept is basically the most famous anime skin in CS:GO. Its name refers to one of Tokyo’s well-known districts, Akihabara, a paradise for anime lovers. This anime AUG skin looks like a cover of a local magazine with stream comments overlaid on it. Its rarity and the fact that it’s a niche skin made it pretty expensive. But it’s worth every penny!
CS.MONEY’s Choice: AUG Akihabara Accept Field Tested for ~$910.
M4A4 Temukau, best anime skin for M4
For a long time, Akihabara Accept was the only skin with a drawn anime girl being the central design element. Everything changed when Valve released the Revolution Case in the beginning of 2023. M4A4 Temukau delights with its vibrant colours on one of the most popular CS:GO weapons, and it’s way more affordable than Akihabara Accept.
CS.MONEY’s Choice: M4A4 Temukau Field Tested for ~$35.
MAC-10 Sakkaku, stylish CS:GO anime skin
When you see a pair of red eyes staring right at you, it could either frighten, adore or excite you. In this case, some players might think of anime like “Hell Girl,” while others recall the classic “Serial Experiments Lain.” Although Lain didn’t have red eyes, she gazed from the TV screen just as expressively. MAC-10 Sakkaku skin captures that essence.
CS.MONEY’s Choice: MAC-10 Sakkaku Field Tested for ~$2.
AWP Oni Taiji, popular anime AWP skin
Let’s move on from cute manga/anime CS:GO girls to drawn creatures. Oni are big humanoid demons who enjoy feasting on human flesh. Yikes! They say that people who can’t control their anger have a chance of turning into one of oni. AWP Oni Taiji is designed in a traditional Japanese artistic style and is perfect for intense gameplay.
CS.MONEY’s Choice: AWP Oni Taiji Field Tested for ~$420.
Glock-18 Umbral Rabbit, CS:GO pistol anime skin
You might say that Glock-18 Umbral Rabbit is of a Chinese style, and we have to agree. However, its vibe takes us to fairytale, otherworldly realms as if we were in a new work by Studio Ghibli. It’s a very beautiful and quite affordable anime-like skin, which makes a good addition to our best anime skins 2023 compilation.
CS.MONEY’s Choice: Glock-18 Umbral Rabbit Field Tested for ~$1.
Galil AR Kami, manga CS:GO skin
Manga, traditional Japanese black-and-white comics, is one of the most popular sources for anime adaptations. The creators of Galil AR Kami (which by the way means deity in Japanese) decided that Galil is a great base for manga to be depicted on. And they chose well: it looks beautiful and interesting!
CS.MONEY’s Choice: Galil AR Kami Field Tested for ~$2.50.
AK-47 Bloodsport, best AK-47 anime skin
Despite the name referencing a cult action movie with Jean-Claude Van Damme, let’s dive into its visual aspect. When you look at Bloodsport, you can’t help but draw comparisons with the equally iconic anime film Akira. Shōtarō Kaneda protagonist’s legendary red motorcycle became not only an icon of futuristic style but also a meme in culture, and AK-47 Bloodsport secured its place among the most popular skins.
CS.MONEY’s Choice: AK-47 Bloodsport Field Tested for ~$105.
MP9 Mount Fuji, bright anime MP9 skin
Speaking of Japan, we can’t ignore Mount Fuji. This volcano has had a tremendous impact on Japanese culture, especially on visual art. Therefore, seeing a representation of such beauty on a CS:GO skin is no surprise. MP9 Mount Fuji‘s vibrant colours and rising sun will please any enthusiast of Japanese culture.
CS.MONEY’s Choice: MP9 Mount Fuji Field Tested for ~$1.40.
Galil AR Crimson Tsunami, another anime rifle
The design of Galil AR Crimson Tsunami references the works of the great Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. In particular, Crimson Tsunami clicks with The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Similar visual styles can be found in anime, for example, Demon Slayer.
CS.MONEY’s Choice: Galil AR Crimson Tsunami Field Tested for ~$1.10.
Desert Eagle Kumicho Dragon, anime protagonist skin
Finally, let’s talk about an amazing CS:GO anime skin that uses only three colours: silver, purple, and white. Despite the limited colour palette, Desert Eagle Kumicho Dragon looks extremely luxurious and stylish. One can imagine such a weapon in the hands of a protagonist (or antagonist!) in an anime. The dragon engraving adds a significant number of points to the skin.
CS.MONEY’s Choice: Desert Eagle Kumicho Dragon Field Tested for ~$17.
