• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

This is subject to change, but off the top of my head:

Son Goku(DB/Z/GT)
Dewey Novak(Eureka Seven) Favorite Character
L(Death Note) Favorite Character
Sesshomaru(Inuyasha) Favorite Character
Happosai(Ranma 1/2) Favorite Character
Yusuke Urameshi(Yu Yu Hakusho)
Kenpachi Zaraki(Bleach) Favorite Character
King Bradley(FMA: Brotherhood) Favorite Character
Richard Moore/Kogoro Mouri(Case Closed/Detective Conan) Favorite Character

Note: These are in no real order, and are merely who I recognize as truly great characters. This means, in some cases, the characters I have listed are not my personal favorite from that series. For example, my personal favorite Dragon Ball character is actually Majin Buu...
Wow? Just ten? I really rate characters on their commitment to their beliefs, their personality, and interactions with other characters. This is how I hold two beliefs about Naruto (SUB = Good DUB = Bad)
Character (Anime)- Reason
1. Edward Elric (Full Metal Alchemist, Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood)- Has all the points of a tragic hero. Hamartia especially (Shortness). You can feel the emotion that Ed portrays. Although Vic does help with that in the DUB.
2. Roy Mustang (FMA, FMAB)- contrasts well with Ed. Maybe be from stereotypes r us at the beginning of FMA, but turns out pretty serious in his pursuits, especially showed in the battle against Pride.
3. L (Deathnote)- Although he may be a bit crazy in my opinion, he's a genius, and I respect that. Although he pretty much has no conscience, as showed when he has the man killed to prove Kira can kill from anywhere at anytime.
4. Lieutenant Mays Hughs (FMA, FMAB)- if you've seen the anime or read the manga, this character just redefines 'obsessed.' Makes me happy to see a picture of him.
5. Excalibur (Soul Eater)- Why the most annoying character over anyone else? Simply because of that. Once again, the emotion of irritation is extremely well portrayed. Simply defies all logic.
6. Lord Death aka Shinigami (Soul Eater)- do I really have to explain myself? Great comic relief character, goes well with Death Scythe.
7. Bakura (Yu-Gi-Oh)- Evil. Very Evil. Although he mainly is a better character in the manga, I still like him. And then with the ring there is the malicious parasitic aspect of Yami Bakura that has integrated itself, he's interesting character.
8. Misty (Pokemon)- Much more complex than most believe, in my opinion. Has a secret crush on Brock IMO. Why else would she be so mad at him flirting with all the Nurse Joys and Officer Jennies? Seems to have something for Ash too. So ya, she's a flirt. Stereotypical traits on all other things, that is why she is at the bottom of my favorites list.
9. Lucy (Elfen Lied)- as much as I think the series is really messed up, there is something just cool about this psychopathic murderer with invisible arms. She seems to take pleasure in slaughtering others. Can't really blame her, she was locked away in a bag for like 15 years.
10. Uzamaki Naruto (Naruto)- Japanese version only. His character in my opinion is way different in the English DUB. Persistent, but thats about it.

I like most Anime Characters, but those are my favorites from a few shows to name a few. Others that score near the top are anyone from Soul Eater or Fullmetal Alchemist, and I guess Natsaru (Kampfer), as well as the abridged version of most anime characters.

As for my LEAST favorites:
Jaden Yuki (Yu Gi Oh GX)- personally I hate the series, but this guy sums it all up. Annoying? Check. Redeeming aspects? No. Any character development? No.
Naruto Uzamaki (Naruto)- Seriously this one takes the cake. English DUB only. Crappy catch phrase? check. Sounds 40+ years old? Check. Character development? Censored if you ask me.
Any other annoying character. At this rate, that includes Yuma.

6-Reborn (Ketekyo Hitman Reborn)
7-Pegasus (Yu Gi Oh
8-Light (Death Note)
9-Goku (Dragon Ball Z)
10-Frieza (Dragon Ball Z)
