Best Guy 7 is the seventh edition of Best Guy Contest, a series of character popularity contests organized by the r/anime subreddit and held in the AnimeBracket website. This edition is also the first major contest organized by r/anime moderator mpp00, after longtime figurehead ShaKing807 announced retirement from hosting contests at the end of Best Character 5. The contest's name was based on the manga and anime series Attack on Titan, after its representative Levi Ackerman won the previous edition of Best Guy.
