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.

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

164 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-11 15:59 ID:jRuLgINn

I've not yet watched Lain...

165 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-12 13:05 ID:sHZwB3zP

What kept you long without watching a 13 episode series from 1997?

166 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-12 16:55 ID:7Cx6kLcl


I cannot remind nothing except for the moment when
breast part of Ayanami's white suit was filled up
with air...(´・ω・`) I love boobs...

167 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-13 15:17 ID:sHZwB3zP

How sad the closest Shinji got with a girl was groping his own Mom

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.

169 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-13 16:45 ID:Qvb0yROo

I love Hugo from Project Arms.
Because she has good nature.

170 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-13 17:02 ID:sHZwB3zP

Shinji should have picked yaoi advances Kawaru expected that night

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

Most places keep his name spelled like Kaworu that is what you see

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..

You are leaving out the part Chloe is hardcore lesbian with Kirika

177 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-17 16:06 ID:fg8iALDs

You win !

カヲル is classical notation.


178 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-17 16:21 ID:fg8iALDs

I like NOIR too. It has nice musics.
I like Kirika.

179 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-17 16:28 ID:cTehrTgv


I forgot about Claire for some reason. Even though her story make me baaaaaawwwwwwwwww and her relationship with Raki touched me greatly. But I like her a lot.

180 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-18 01:07 ID:sHZwB3zP

Noir excels with music but nothing else other than implied subtext

181 Name: Kyoumo Unko!bKaGbR8Ka. : 2008-11-23 17:13 ID:AfAe4lBV

I like Kirika. Because it seems she looks like the girl
I have loved unrequitedly yet. The momory deceived me,
gone away, and left a beautiful lie...

182 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-24 12:03 ID:sHZwB3zP

Kirika appears more interested with Mireille unlike Chloe advances

183 Name: manga man : 2009-03-07 02:45 ID:c8uDf2GV

It is the demonstration of Animation Characters for PC-8801.

Many stores and individuals drew such graphics.
Please enjoy a nostalgic demonstration.

This is a homepage of koorogiyousyoku.
The retro PC game is introduced.
It is a game with a focus on the 1980s.

196 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-11-13 10:27 ID:DSrpC3i3

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

I really like Tsumugi Kotobuki because she's very cute and silly.
But my favorite character is probably not from K-ON at all, but from Idom@ster. Miki Hoshii~!

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

Another vote for Lain. She was "multi-faceted" but not in a way that was just a gimmick.

199 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-12-09 12:46 ID:PFmk73Ac

Madoka kaname

200 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-12-11 13:45 ID:JoAqGfPK

Marui Mitsuba. I like loud-mouthed chubbies.

griffith from berserk

202 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-12-13 17:27 ID:ZFFTgJkd

Kusanagi Motoko from SAC. She is very interesting person with incredible skills and strength.
And Lain is a Goddess undoubtedly ^_^

203 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-12-24 16:34 ID:VQyegGQC

Guts from Berserk. Why? Because he's the strongest motherfucker anyone has ever seen, and without having any extraordinary powers. He's just a normal human bad-ass.

204 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-12-24 22:50 ID:myBSeqSQ

Yomiko Readman from Read or Die. She's a bibliophile with cool abilities, and she's cute and clumsy. I love her!

205 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-12-31 11:53 ID:9vmEpQCS

206 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2013-02-26 16:03 ID:H/0sxK6T

I'd have to go with Yuno from Hidamari Sketch. Can't help but love her.
