Aside from being a one of the best Mobile Legends: Bang Bang roamers in competitive esports, Bren Esports’ Allan “Lusty” Castromayor is also a huge anime fan.

The professional Mobile Legends player loves anime so much that he even had some characters tattooed on his arm, and plans to get a full tattoo sleeve full of anime characters in the future.

A closer look at Lusty’s tattoos

Lusty explains all his anime tattoos in an interview with ONE Esports.

“I have the whole Straw Hat crew, but I’m still missing two more characters on the right side,” he explained. “And then I have Tokyo Revengers’ Kazutora and Mikey on my neck.”

Naturally, ONE Esports had to ask him which one was his favorite anime tattoo and why.

“The Chopper tattoo is my favorite because I like him the most among the Straw Hat crew,” explained Lusty.

The Bren Esports roamer also shared his top five anime list.

Recognized as one of the best anime shows of 2021, Lusty can totally relate to the plot of Tokyo Revengers. There was a time when he was always involved in fights just to look cool in school.

Of course, times have changed, and he is a good boy now.



2. Log Horizon

Log Horizon is an isekai anime fit for gamers like Lusty. Isekai, which means “different world” in English, is an anime genre where characters are transported into a new world or dimension.

Lusty admires Shiro’s unmatched intelligence in the show. He also has a fondness for characters who wear glasses.


1. One Piece

As if it wasn’t obvious enough by the look of his tattoos, One Piece tops the spot in Lusty’s anime list.

“The story of One Piece is really magnificent, it’s hard to guess how the series would end,” he explained. “Also, Chopper is really cute.”

Another Mobile Legends pro player, Danerie “Wise” Del Rosario, is also a big One Piece fan and even owns a figure collection dedicated to the anime.
