Who's your favorite anime character, and why? (212)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-12-14 15:08 ID:QTh3ugA/ This thread was merged from the former /anime/ board. You can view the archive here.

I'm actually not really interested in who your favorite character is, but rather on the reasons that make you like him/her/it so much. So please don't just leave a name, but list the main reasons that motivate your choice (nice looks, cool powers, interesting personnality, lifestory, etc).

If you are hard pressed to chose an all time favorite, you can also cite some of your favorites.

So, to kick off this thread, here's my favorite character:

Reki, from Haibane Renmei: I like her looks, the multiple layers of her personality, and how these layers show up in details of her everyday behavior, making her more "real" (for instance, the fact that she's a smoking teenager). I also related well to her inner struggles, and enjoyed the way her conflict was brought to a closure.

Haruka Tenou (Sailor Uranus) from Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon. She has the perfect balance of a feminine and masculine personality, topped with the ability to make any girl faint with a smile. She's strong, and doesn't need to rely on anyone, except perhaps Michiru. Megumi Ogata's voice just makes her even more attractive, causing her to be the single coolest female in any anime.

I agree with OP's choice.

4 Name: OPieceman : 2007-12-15 01:53 ID:pLzhYTPN

Luffy from One Piece because of his strength , personality, and his determanation to follow his dreams. He trys very hard to show people and to actually follow his dreams unlike people who say something and then never do it.Also many other pirate captains look at their crew mates as only mere dolls but Luffy sees his crew as his best friends making him different then most captains and values them with his life.

Rekki is a fine choice. I tend to 'fall' for tsundere characters and it could be said that she is one. However, her character is rather more believable than many tsundere, insofar as her personality is not as outlandish along either dimension.

Yomiko Readman (ROD) is cute and has a disposition of indominable optimism that cheers me up but is somewhat south of many other cutsey/sugary/how much coffee has she had characters who are similarly so. Like Rekki, I also like that Yomiko is far from perfect at everything and that she has a more normal body than some cookiecutter anime girls (aside from enormous breasts in ROD:TV).

The Count in The Count of Monte Cristo, because his voice acting in both sub and dub is superb and because his grim determination and charm makes him a great antihero. I loved all the time he was on the screen. A worthwhile update to Dumas' great work.

The cast of Hellsing. Just find them likeable in general. Style, attitude, and power that appeals very strongly to the teenage boy inside me.

Sarcastic girls like Rei from Pani Poni Dash, Yomi from Azumanga Daioh, Nenene from ROD, etc. It's only 1 dimension but I find them very amusing.

Many others. Anime has a tendency to have fun characters, so I imagine this is a very diverse field. I'm interested to see who the rest of the community likes, as well as the general favorites here on a text board vs % of pictures put up on an image board.

I jump around a lot. At the moment, I'd say Tsuyuri from Doujin Work. Deadpan, sadistic, manipulative, delicious. The misconceptions she spreads are the most entertaining part of the series. Also, bloomer-themed rape doujins.

Kenshiro, because his motivations are HATE and LOVE

13 Name: Maddy : 2007-12-24 23:37 ID:vP5cE1BD

Konata from Lucky Star, because she and I are so alike. I like a character I can relate w/. =3

I have always liked Tuxedo Mask. I do not know why but he just seemed to be what an otaku strives to be... cool, has a special girl, and super powers. What more could you want?

16 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-01-20 22:56 ID:TX2stWj+

i think Gundam Wing is a pretty cool guy
eh fights giant roboats and doesn't afraid of anything

17 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-01-21 00:20 ID:336wj/2M

Konata and Haruhi... Aya Hirano, yes!

18 Name: TS : 2008-01-21 07:45 ID:G/3Lwwg1

I didn't know that Gundam Wing was an individual, >>16

Lelouch (Code Geass). Unlike cardboard cutout shounen protagonists who have moral struggles, Lelouch is the epitome of the anti-hero; foregoing the consequences for what he believes is right.

Onizuka (GTO) gets my vote as well. Uses whatever methods he likes in order to execute good deeds.

19 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-01-21 23:39 ID:QEf4+9G0

>>10 Tsuyuri is one of my favorites as well. <3

I really like Rika Furude (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni) because of her immense strength and her personality.
Isumi Saginomiya from Hayate no Gotoku! as well. I seem to like the quieter demure types that are mellow until they snap XD;;

Mr. Kimura from Azumanga Daioh. If he isn't your hero, then you need to take a good hard look at your life.

23 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-01-24 12:52 ID:9zzMPkcE

Kimura-sensei definitely my hero. The two of us are pretty close to alike.

I mean when I'm in the city around the time school finishes, my jaw drops for like an hour straight.

Would you care to explain why you like those characters? A list of random names is not very interesting. No neet to write an essay, a simple line after each name would already be enough,...

29 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-01-31 03:22 ID:98T2FRLJ

Jin from Samurai Champloo.

I like him a lot because he stick to his personal codes and principles and will never ever compromise those beliefs for other reasons. Also, he happen to be one of the badass swordsman in anime so it's always pleasure to watch him fighting other fools.

30 Name: F!ublu7ZdqEU : 2008-01-31 04:01 ID:nWqfXnK0

Guts from Berserk: He represents everything that can go wrong in life. No Parents, raped young, betrayed by his best friend, etc etc.. and the sad thing is he can't escape his fate no matter what he does..yet he keeps fighting.

Vicious from Cowboy Bebop: he is cold,brutal and he believes in nothing...yet once he did. He believed in his friends,Julia,Spike and they betrayed him by leaving..ditching him which destroyed lil' faith Vicious had in life. "You were the one leaving people out the loop"(to spike)..

Ryu from Shamo(manga): Killed both parents because they kept pushing him in his studies. send to juvi/jail where he was raped and where he started training,learning martial arts from an old convicted sensei. We finally see THAT bad guy you always see in kung fu movies doing bad sh1t..from raping to killing.

Hanma Yujiro from Baki the grappler

Kuroro Lucifer from Hunter X Hunter

etc etc etc

31 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-01-31 13:17 ID:XAMFE+OB


Interesting,... You seem to like well built bad guys who seem to have a reasonable reason to act in wrong ways.

I would totally agree, nothing spoils more the scenario than a superficial and unbelieavable bad guy. A painfull example is the guild's boss in Last Exile. There is never a shred of explanation about why she behaves the way she does (and often what she does makes no sense at all).

32 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-01-31 16:49 ID:Heaven

Haibara from Mahoraba: He lives an idyllic life, dividing his time between fishing, ventriloquism and novel writing. How enviable!

34 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-02-20 07:36 ID:+PKbtKsE

Taishi from Comic Party. He is a total geek/nerd/otaku/clown/fanboy, but most of all he knows when to be serious/kind. i really like that about him.

35 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-02-21 21:22 ID:Heaven

Shinji. Because he doesn't run away.

Seriously though, I'm going to have to go with Alucard, and not just because he kills everyone. Something about his obsession with being defeated in the proper manner is reminiscent of The Dark Knight Returns, and I like that.

36 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-02-22 13:24 ID:Heaven

Also, he grew a beard. And beards are fucking awesome.

Ritsuka from Loveless.

  • because I kinda fell in love with him.
  • because of the tention between him and soubi, following him throughout the series. love it.
  • because we have some personality traits in common.

As for the first place ranking

44 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-03-07 12:02 ID:J3r4cAYG


I fell in love with her when I was 11. I saw an ad about S.E.L. in a ToyFare (fuck you McFarlane) magazine. My connection was only 56k at the time, so that means I waited a week or two, in between watching it and searching Direct Connect hubs, to see the whole thing. Since I couldn't wait for the downloads to finish, I searched the entire script online - so I knew the story before I saw it.

I related to her even in the ad; that far away look, of her being pushed against a fence, and clutching at it almost carelessly, that she was standing in the wind on top of a large building... It was primarily her indifference to the environment that I loved at first. She could be dressed in anything and still seem as if her appearance was not at all important, as if her reason for adopting a fashionable superfluousness was out of plain curiosity. That brings me to another point - I was completely caught up in a 'cyberpunk' phase, staying up long nights to code, dismissing all the world in my selfishness, listening to obscure rock, and generally forgetting what existed outside my fantasies and programs. The genius of Lain's character is that everything she says and does fits perfectly how she looks. "Who am I? I am me." I felt like her and I weren't anything but code and circuitry adorned with flesh, she was all lack of ego, yet completely purposeful in her existence.

7 years later, I still feel the same exact way about her.

45 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-03-07 15:45 ID:XAMFE+OB


Excellent entry, and interesting read! Wish there were more like that,... To sum up, you enjoyed the character mostly because it strongly related to your own life experience and interests at the time.

I have to watch that anime,...

>>44 your story is touching...

47 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-03-13 18:38 ID:+U0Z7uVT

Scar from FMA
he really isn't your generic anti-villain/hero, and i actually felt sympathy for him. He did have his flaws such as his religiouse zeal coupled with the hypocrisy of using alchemy to kill alchemist because he thought alchemy was evil, but those flaws made him seem more human as if he wasn't just some anti-hero or villain who was just cooked up to fill the role.
I also liked how he also displayed very little arrogance, fully aware of his own limits and that despite the fact that he viewed the deaths of alchemists as justified he was fully aware that he was still a sinner.

48 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-03-14 01:05 ID:a7cARwoV

My favorite is Rio. She was born to advertise Japanese slot machine, called Pachi-Slo, the model named "Super Black Jack".

She has pretty cute boob that seems so yammy, sweetly shaped waist, hip like a bud of a cherry blossam, and most important, pink-colored short hair. She is "a cluster" of ideal, at least for me. She was made to be so, as she is a means of commerce.

Those two factors, nice body and "beautiful" background of the birth, explain the reason why I love Rio. She is just a puppet of money-eater, and has perfect body. In addition to that, thanks for cheap character-making, she is given a perfect personality. She can be true love of mine because all I know is that she is gramarous, she is a not-so-good dealer, her machine rarely gives me coins, and something like that.

If I were killed by tons of coins disgorged from her machine, there is nothing to say anymore.

His hard work and determination are wgat drove him to be my favorite. And also the way he can have a brightside without losing his inner core.

Plus he's an orphan and well so am I,
so therees a connection there.

Okay, I just made it sound like I was rephrasing what >>66 said.

But mine, >>68 , was meant to be along the lines of the relationship in general. Like, she wouldn't talk about stupid things, do stupid stuff, or just be stupid at all. It would be a long-term and integral part of the relationship that she not be annoying.

So, no. Out of those characters, the only that comes anywhere close to being charismatic is Haruhi, and even she is mostly off-putting, except in rare moments.

Kamina in Gurren-Lagann is charismatic. I think you're looking for another word. Although I suspect what you really mean is "that I like".

I tend to have a favourite character in every series I read so it's difficult to define just one character which I love above all the other characters. Generally, in guys I like the vulnerable characters and in girls I like tsundere character types.
I guess I'll give a few of mine from different series I have read recently:
Hikaru from ouran high school - I like his insecurities and his jealousy over haruhi. As a fangirl, Hikaru appeals to me greatly because he is in a real struggle over whether to help Tamaki and Haruhi out and whether to be selfish and let it go on without Tamaki realising. The fact that at the moment he seems to be on the verge of sacrificing his own feelings for the sake of Haruhi is something that I really love about him at the moment. Plus he is the character who has developed the most through the series, so I have grown to like him alot.

Madarame from Genshiken - I liked him from the start of the series, but he became my favourite after he began to develop a crush on one of the other characters, because it was an unrequited thing and the expressions he showed and how he acted kind of won me over. He's an unusual favourite, I admit, but he's so awesome I can't help but like him.

Ryuuji and Taiga from Tora dora - unusually, both the main characters have similar personalities to those which I prefer in main characters. Taiga has to be tsundere. If she isn't, I'll jump off a cliff for getting it so wrong. Ryuuji has an appearance that makes him look like a delinquent but he has actually a gentle personality. They both fit my ideals for characters.

Kagami and Konata from Lucky star - aside from really liking them as individual characters, I really like them as a duo, where Konata says a comment, Kagami corrects it or tells her off and then Konata makes a gag out of it.

I could go on but I won't. And if these characters seem random, it's because I just looked at the last four things I had watched.

86 Name: Sen : 2008-06-02 21:32 ID:6jnFe7oI

Sorry, me again. I realised that almost all of the characters mentioned and the reasons for liking them are linked to the manga version rather than the anime version. So I've listed my four favourite manga characters. >_< sorry!

87 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-09 01:52 ID:x4Pg3GpE

Shigure Sohma from Fruits Basket. He's fairly reserved most of the time, and has a zen way of looking at everything. He's also capable of sarcasm of downright hilarious levels. He knows when to quit, though. Usually.

88 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-25 22:07 ID:UpB4qi54

Shinji Ikari... from Evangelion...

He is soo believable as a character.

89 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-26 07:49 ID:ehGL7Wja

Johann Liebert because he is hitler, satan and THE EPITOME OF EVIL. He is by far one of the most kick-ass characters in a serious anime.

also, lain, because.... obvious, also: >>44

90 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-26 18:39 ID:uM/3gClu

Kino is not beautiful therefore she is one reverse trap with depth

91 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-29 05:44 ID:bEoxA/Ou

Kanji Sasahara from Genshiken, i can really empathize with his character. I felt kinda like him in the begining of Genshiken never dated, hiding the fact that his an otaku, kinda shy and outspoken, and I even just started college at the time i first watched Genshiken. The only difference i saw was the fact that i really didn't like doujinshi or hentai games.

92 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-29 14:23 ID:uM/3gClu

Those last two things are for perverts anyway who can't date girls

93 Name: Lichking84 : 2008-08-29 15:52 ID:rtpVjrvt

Ryo Saeba from City Hunter.
He's just awesome. Every night is like a party for him. I want Happy Mokkori with girls!!!!!!!!!!

On side note; an anime character that i hate the most is Suzumiya Haruhi. She's one arrogant bitch (in my opinion). And i would love to bitch-slap her.

94 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-29 17:24 ID:sHZwB3zP

Hmmm... I'd have to say a nostalgic favorite of mine is Xelloss from Slayers. He was a conniving little bastard and always left you wondering what the hell he was up to. While at the same time he was likable, and funny. He's what made the filler episodes of Slayers NEXT so good.

L Lawliet of Death Note, because he's a genius, yet a freak.

I like Alucard just because completely slaughtering an entire SWAT squad in a hotel is pretty badass.

101 Name: A-Mask : 2008-09-10 05:08 ID:puqazA9n

Yuki Nagato - She's cute, quiet, and the most interesting character in the series. Plus i've always had an interest in robots, and her behavior is very robotic.

No love for the Mikuru huh?

104 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-12 15:10 ID:sHZwB3zP

Mikuru did nothing plot wise other than break glass with her voice

poor Mikuru. Yuki would be better I guess ^^

107 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-16 16:38 ID:sHZwB3zP

Mikuru may turn out useful in the next season using her time power

108 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-18 13:37 ID:Heaven

Mikuru may get them there but Yuki gets them back. Everybody send love to Yuki!

109 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-18 17:03 ID:sHZwB3zP

Mikuru bothers them using fanservice with such a useless character

110 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-22 11:35 ID:Heaven

The upside of Mikuru is that she is almost certainly ruined for marriage, and thus Kyon can penetrate her.

The downside is that somehow penetrating Yuki would be more exciting.

111 Name: Kyoumo Unko!ZUNa78GuQc : 2008-10-26 06:28 ID:yuwaP9nD

I like Nagi from Hayate the combat butler.
Because I like her character voice in Japan.
Rie Kugimiya acted Nagi there.

112 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-10-26 06:46 ID:yuwaP9nD

Nagi is one of tsundere type chatracters in Japan.
Tsundere is the abbreviated form of tsun tsun dere dere that means one who cannot show one's love well.

In these days, tsundere type chatracters are popular on manga and anime in Japan.

Speaking of tsundere, has anyone noticed that Rie-chan got like 3 identical roles in one year. :-/

115 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-26 14:50 ID:sHZwB3zP

Rie Kugimiya was born to make tsundere ever since she became Shana

116 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-27 10:12 ID:Heaven

Well she is good at it, but like 3 roles in one year?

117 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-10-27 16:09 ID:WCxPNuhx

It seems angel's voice I've not yet heard.
And she has no little acting skill.

She is urekko. It means she is very busy 'cause booming now.
My household android must have her voice.

118 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-27 16:40 ID:sHZwB3zP

Perhaps those who ask Rie wanted to market the anime with her name

119 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-10-28 15:47 ID:QVNm4d2n


She is the hottest voice actress today.

122 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-29 13:14 ID:8uDU+s0C

Hinamori Amu from Shugo Chara! She has almost the exact same personality as I do, which is a little scary. It makes me wish that I had little guardian characters though.

Around this era most silent girl characters are Rei Ayanami clones

126 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-10-30 16:34 ID:UgAYBuEb


I vote a inspiration for tundere characters came from not Ayanami but Asuka.

127 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-10-30 16:57 ID:UgAYBuEb

I like Lafiel from Crest of the Stars.
Because I like Ayako Kawasumi. She is a good voice actress.
(But her Nodame is miscasting...)

Asuka tsundere characters are opposites with the silent Rei clones

130 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-10-31 16:09 ID:PTDDAdhc

Rei is a successor of fushigi chan characters.
A typical fushigi chan is Maetel from Galaxy Express 999.

Reiji Matsumoto's works are very important.
They occupied anime movies' top sellings in Japan
before Studio Ghibli arose.

Miyazaki could have worked with more TV series like Sherlock Hound

141 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-03 16:30 ID:fD0vjT6T

Miyazaki has very long early years.
Many anime otakus have been blinded by his brightness
for over 30 years. But anime was something for children
at that time and he was not well-known person in Japan.
His boom has started from Nausicaa.

I like Future Boy Conan.

142 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-03 18:05 ID:sHZwB3zP

Lain Iwakura nails down cute quiet shy loli act without stupid moe

145 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-04 16:41 ID:5wrxJGE8


Takahata let raccoon dogs fly with sacks. So he slipped
big money for that slip.


OK. You are right.

146 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-04 16:53 ID:5wrxJGE8

I think my favorite character at the moment would be Itoshiki-sensei from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, because he's such an unique type of character and he's just too funny trying to commit suicide every time ^^

so long...

149 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-05 15:25 ID:sHZwB3zP

Ever optimistic Franz Kafka makes a neat foil to his suicidal acts

150 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-05 16:35 ID:7AvKzF4w

I like Tom and Jerry from Tom and Jerry. Because they
never die even outside of Ayanami's protection !


151 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-06 16:32 ID:sHZwB3zP

You mean the original Tom and Jerry or the cat and mouse creation?

152 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-06 16:54 ID:7AvKzF4w


I meant Tom and Jerry by MGM.

153 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-06 23:31 ID:sHZwB3zP

Why would the cat and mouse who hate each other pair with Ayanami?

154 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-07 16:14 ID:7AvKzF4w


Because Ayanami said to Shinji, "You shall live
for my protection."

Don't you know Ayanami is clones of Shinji's mom ?

155 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-07 16:30 ID:7AvKzF4w

I like Jack from Samurai Jack. Because he is a rover
in sadness.

156 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-08 00:38 ID:sHZwB3zP

Ayanami seems more interested with penguins not some other animals

157 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-08 16:23 ID:BWSvqQ4C

Penpen is Misato san's penguin. Ayanami's character is
on the opposite side of Misato san's.

158 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-08 16:47 ID:sHZwB3zP

159 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-09 16:03 ID:uKn8UI7z

160 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-09 16:28 ID:uKn8UI7z

161 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-10 11:26 ID:cTehrTgv

Because he is a pretty troublemaker.

163 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-10 22:15 ID:sHZwB3zP

That makes possession but you could split Lain with her other side

168 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-13 16:35 ID:Qvb0yROo

Shinji should check Misato san's used sanitary goods......(´・ω・`) I believe it !

Because it is boy's nature.

171 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-15 06:18 ID:kgOwsQm7

Kawaru ? Who you want to point is Kaoru Nagisa (渚 カヲル).
Shinji amd Kaoru took a bath together.

172 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-15 17:08 ID:kgOwsQm7

I love Princess Kirara from Anpanman movie
"Soreike! Anpanman: When the Flower of Courage Opens
(それいけ! アンパンマン 勇気の花がひらくとき)".

Because she is ourselves.

173 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-16 01:05 ID:sHZwB3zP

174 Name: Debug Otaku : 2008-11-16 18:34 ID:PQE9AXpJ

I actually have a few.

Chloe from Noir. Because of her enigmatic appearance and her loyalty and love for Ultena and wanting to become Noir. She has a very sweet side personality and acts like a child.

Setsuna from Negima. Because she is the typical "I'm unworthy, I must protect Konoka at all times." Her fitting styles, her morals and her cool half demon heritage. I like.


Clare from Claymore. Vicious, cold, killer. But even proves to be a genuine character. She fights with purpose, self righteous and value.

I noticed.. all the characters I mentioned all fall into some sort of second yuri genre..

gone away, and left a beautiful lie...

Lain is the one of the greatest Anime-character.
when SEL televised, 1998 in japan, most otaku couldnt understand what the anime did. Because in these days in japan, internet was not common. Almost otaku couldnt imagine 'wired' and also couldnt understand what is the idea 'omnipresence in wired' meaning.

And there were two parallel contents released.
one was Anime and the another one was game.
To understand Lain, it needed to collect a lot of peaces of information from both contents.

when i was a child, my parents didnt allow me to buy the game because the game version included Lain's masturbation scene.

197 Name: *Amagi : 2012-11-18 19:10 ID:v0Mhszlv

198 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-11-18 23:25 ID:FWZRKCXG
