Smile Shirtless hearthrob?

Hey folks.

Normally when I costume up it's for comedic purposes, and I generally use a morphsuit:

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...4&l=ee88e227c7
As seen here. ^

But I'm looking to get a little more serious with my costumes quality wise and was hoping to incorporate the body I've worked so hard on into it as well.
This is a recent photo:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...4&l=d05bd7c4e3
I plan on being properly ripped by the time I get to wear my next costume, and will probably be a little bigger too due to the current workout and diet plan I'm on; but my look shouldn't change too much body-type wise.
I'm 188cm (6'1 or 6'2, don't recall exactly) in height.

I dress up for entertainment purposely mostly, I like to give others a laugh or make them feel good.
So basically my question is, who do you all think I could best pull off if I want to spend my day in costume making the ladies (or gents, if they so swing that way) feel special/swoony when they come to get a hug and/or photo taken with me, etc?
I'm also looking for character suggestions that would also stand out and get noticed, even by people that don't know them.

So far I've considered:
Zoro from One Piece
Borderlands Psycho Bandit (entertainment and cool value more-so than heartthrob)
Ace from One Piece
A Depraved starting class from Dark Souls (comedic value, plank shield and club with sack helm)
Ichigo from Bleach (I was thinking but I believe it's far beyond my skill level to pull off).
and maybe Dante from DMC (but I hear he's supposed to be really tall, much more than I already am??)

I don't really have any skill at all in making things for myself so most of (if not all) the items would have to be bought, but I'm also hoping to not splash out huge on a single cosplay just for entertaining people a couple of days per year.

At any rate, those were the character ideas that I had, now I'm hoping you can all provide me with many more, and hopefully more bodily accurate than my own ideas, thanks.

So 66 views and no additional suggestions later... figured I'd at least try a bump and mention that Shou from Akumetsu is also a big consideration of mine right now, if I can get my hands on a Mask and wig for it that is...

Kamina from Gurren Lagann. Any of the guys from Free.
Those are the ones I can think of first. (:

Thanks.
I'm having difficulty figuring out how to find out what "Free" is though (not sure what this one is), since google just thinks I'm searching for free stuff. lol

That database is amazing! Thanks.

Free is the upcoming ''swimming anime'' and is sure to make the fangirls swoon.

Bishamon, Hotaru Kaze, Senryo, Konnosuke and Renji Kurobara from Zone-00

Someone from Kuroko no Basket, I'm inclined to say Kagami..

Not shirtless, but a fan pleaser: Bro from Homestuck!

Lol! I suppose nothing but swimming trunks and maybe one of those jackets they wear would certainly make things easy on me at least. xD

Thanks for more great suggestions, a few of those peaked my interest too.

I'll just leave a link to Sano here, but there are also plenty of feudal-era males who wear open shirts or haoris that reveal a lot of the chest. I think Mugen from Samurai Champloo might also be an option (though not much of a heart-throb)

Ah, thank you, I'd totally forgotten about the Kenshin and alike series.

I have a little while before having to officially decide and brush up on a cosplay yet, thanks for giving me so many more options to consider so far folks.
