    Appearances can be deceiving, y'know. The character in my avatar, Nagisa Shiota from Assassination Classrom, looks very much like a girl in several ways (which is also focused on in the anime too) but actually he's a boy.

    Plus, wasn't Neferpitou supposed to be genderless in the manga too?

    It's more clearly defined in the anime. For starters, the anime gave Neferpitou a bust lol. Also, Killua says 'she' a few times. And when Komugi was being cared for, someone said Pitou had 'maternal' instincts. So anime Pitou can be considered a 'she'

  9. 345ash-greninja

    345ash-greninja Grinning Shorty is the most adorable

    Applying tiers to Top 10 lists is way too much gaudy & contrived for me so I guess I'll let it pass

    But yeah, my list, or more precisely lists, have actually changed a bit after I've watched some more anime (once again doing a list in several categories):

    My Top 10 Anime Protagonists (only including primary MCs here):

    1) Edward Elric (FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)

    2) Lelouch Vi Britannia (Code Geass: Lelouch Of The Rebellion)

    3) Eren Yeager (Attack On Titan)

    4) Gon Freecss [Hunter x Hunter (2011)]

    5) Izuku Midoriya (My Hero Academia)

    6) Light Yagami (Death Note)

    7) Simon (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)

    8) Soma Yukihira (Food Wars: Shokugeki No Soma)

    9) Nagisa Shiota (Assassination Classroom)

    10) Shigeo Kageyama (Mob Psycho 100)

    Yeah, I thought about it and had to come to a conclusion that it's Nagisa who classifies more as the protagonist of Assassination Classroom compared to Koro-Sensei. Yeah, Koro-Sensei is indeed a very integral character in the story of the show as a whole, but it's the story of the students which the show mainly follows with Nagisa being at the forefront (that's even emphasized more in the final episode where everything is elaborately shown about what the students became in life after growing up). Plus it's Nagisa who 80% of the time plays the role of the narrator as well, interpreting the story to the viewers.

    Dragalge Why do you hate Lorde so much?

    I suck at ranking so in no particular order: Korosensei, Kallen Kouzuki, Le’ Louch. Baguette!, Simon, Kamina, Edward Elric, Roy Mustang, Ryuko Matoi, Satsuki Kiriyuin, Ragyo Kiriyuin, Izuku Midoriya, All Might, something Bakugo, Yona, Hak, Rintaro Okabe, Kirisu Makise, Sakura Minamoto, Kanade Tachinaba (or the other main girl from Angel Beats! idk)

    Yeah tier lists are objectively superior to straight up rankings in terms of indicating a given viewer’s tastes for anime characters in that they allow for greater margins of error since by putting multiple characters in the same tier, you’re basically saying that you could see characters within said tier ranked in any order. Anyone who wants to claim that it’s ‘gaudy’ or ‘contrived’ is either making a horrendous application of those words or has received a 3rd rate education in English vocabulary.

    Chinese Electric Batman is definitely one of the greatest characters ever conceived. If you haven't watched Darker than Black, it's like a cross between Cowboy Bebop and the character Kiritsugu Emiya but with super powers, Chinese Electric Batman having one of the most interesting abilities that's more than meets the eye. For me personally, Darker than Black is so good, if you watch it in the order of S1 > Gaiden > S2, that it's one of the few anime series where I really want to see a sequel.

    Sometimes less and sometimes more lol since tiers give a better sense of ‘distance’ between 2 characters than rankings do.

    ______________

    Also for a certain someone that loves bringing up MAL, MAL’s anime rating system for each individual user is in essence a tier list comprised of 10 tiers, so I guess that’s also ‘gaudy’ and ‘contrived’ according to this individual lmao.

    Just pointing out that I made an edit in this post of mine, in the Top 10 anti-hero character list category. I added the two remaining characters in my list there to finally fill the empty slots there and finally completed my Top 10 anime anti-heroes list. Bishamon from Noragami and Katsuki Bakugo from My Hero Academia are the 2 new characters made it on to the list there. That's all. :)

    Ery’s Top 10 Favorite Characters

    Yeah, it’s time for my updated list since this list has changed quite a bit. For the most part, most of the characters that were on it before are still on it now, just some have moved up and some have dropped. But all in all, they are all pretty good characters, if I do say so myself.

    0. Lelouch Vi Britannia (Code Geass)
    1. Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter)
    2. Light Yagami (Death Note)
    3. Roy Mustang (FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
    4. Rintaro Okabe (Steins;Gate)
    5. Chrollo Lucilfer (Hunter x Hunter)
    6. Homura Akemi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)
    7. Edward Elric (FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
    8. L (Death Note)
    9. Levi Ackerman (Attack on Titan)
    10. Kurapika (Hunter x Hunter)

    Honorable mentions

    11. Kurisu Makise (Steins;Gate)
    12. Greed (FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
    13. Suzaku Kururugi (Code Geass)
    14. Gon Freecs (Hunter x Hunter)
    15. Satou Kazuma (Konosuba)

    Keep in mind that this list is as of episode 109 of Hunter x Hunter so it will probably change when I am finished.

    2=Holo
    2=Lelouch vi Britannia
    2=Guts
    3. Kurisu Makise
    4. Deishuu Kaiki


    The last 2 spots can be any of: Kou Kitamura, Yukino Yukonoshita, Hitagi Senjougahara, Meruem, Wolfgang Grimmer, Hachiman Hikigaya (I’m not very decisive lol)
