The Best Characters From Every Show I’ve Seen – Part I: “0-A”

One subject, broken into more than 20 separate posts. It’s going to go kind of like this.

Each day, I will release a new letter. I have all of my anime alphabetized, so this post is going to start with Numbers through A, that is to say, anime titles beginning with a number (or period) and the letter A. Tomorrow, B, the next day, C, and so on and so forth.

I was going to make one post, and just have it be really long. But I previewed the post when I was around G, and realized that the post would be way to long, and nobody in their right mind would read the whole thing. In fact, I doubt that anyone will read this.

As I go, I will also paste each section in the page on the top, which will be titled (if it isn’t already) “Anime Character List” or something like that. Anyway, I’m trying to set this up so that this post will end right before December 6th, which would be one full year of Eye Sedso, which blows my mind. Let’s do this shit.

Let’s start off with the A’s (or dots?)

.hack//SIGN – Sora

Sora

*This show was dropped at 21

Ugh. What a shitty way to start off what should be a pretty cool post that most people won’t read anyway. I hated every single character from .hack//SIGN, which is one of the reasons why I dropped it (like, 3 episodes away from finishing it). Sora is cool because he not only has sick knife-like weapons, but he kills off the other characters, and I hate them, so he’s okay in my book. I mean, every other character is so fucking lame that….you know what, fuck it. NEXT!

07 Ghost – Frau

I still don't like you.

*This show was dropped at 4

Wow, this post is starting off badly, as I didn’t like either of these first two entries. 07 Ghost was too gay for me. and Frau gets the win here only because, based on his collection and love for erotica, he can’t really be considered completely gay. Also, he provides some comic relief by being perverted, which is fine. I still don’t like him.

Afro Samurai – Afro

This IS a tasty burger!

First of all, I would like to point out that Afro Samurai is filled with some of the most awesome, insane, fucking cool anime characters out there. Any character in this show could be a number one. But look at Afro:

  • He’s got a fucking afro.
  • He’s voiced by fucking SAMUEL L JACKSON!!!!!!
  • He’s fucking sick at fighting.
  • He looks fucking cool (even if you take out the afro)
  • Have you seen his sideburns? He reminds me of a Japan’d out version of Jules from Pulp Fiction.
  • He’s black, and black samurai kick ass (judging by this anime, which is the only place I’ve seen a black samurai).
  • He was an awesome hockey coach.

Basically, if Samuel L Jackson is voicing a character, you know that it HAS to be a character that is not only bad ass, but awesome.

Ah! My Goddess! – Urd

Urd is fucking cool.

What is it about Urd that makes her awesome? Is it her sometimes abrasive personality? Is it her sick white or silver or whatever color that is hair? Is it the cool markings on her face? Is it the fact that she’s both a Goddess, and half devil? Yes. In fact, it’s all of those. Belldandy can suck my fucking balls, Urd is the best. I wish she just turned demon and killed everyone. (I fucking hate Belldandy).

Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka – Nagomi Shiraishi

If her hair was darker? Hellooooooo it's fuckin Yuki.

What the FUCKK??? I didn’t choose Rie Kugimiya’s character? No. No I did not. And that’s because Nagomi is awesome. She almost reminds me of Nagato from Haruhi (you can guess who the best character is gonna be from that show) because she’s oh so mysterious. I mean, take the haunted house episode for example. She was fucking weird. She’s fucking weird, and I think that’s a good quality to have. (I can’t remember much of this show, and that means it wasn’t that great).

Akikan! – Yell

Nya.

So yeah. Why Yell? First of all, she has a cool weapon, aka a sword (thingy). Second of all, she’s an obvious lesbian. Thirdly, she acts like a cat sometimes (like in that shitty filler episode). That’s it. Those are all of my reasons. Take it or leave it. The show really wasn’t all that great, so I don’t care.

Aoi Hana – Kyouko

Kyouko

If you read my review of the series, then you know that I chose her because she looks awesome with that blonde hair flipped to the side. And she cries a lot, which is super effective. What the hell, she’s awesome. And a lesbian (actually I think she’s bisexual. I bet she ends up with her fiance).

Asu no Yoichi – Chihaya Ikaruga

This will not be the last you've seen of Chihaya on Eye Sedso. Hint hint.

This will not be the last you've seen of Chihaya on Eye Sedso. Hint hint.

This girl has STYLE. I mean, she’s probably one of the best dressed characters that I’ve seen in anime in recent memory. She causes trouble and draws fucking manga, which is cool, even though in every single anime it seems there’s always someone who draws manga or something, and they always end up being the coolest characters. Look for her the next time (or the time after that) that i do a cool characters post.

Asura Cryin’ – Kanade Takatsuki

Kanade

It's fun to re-use old images!

Okay, first and foremost, Heterochromian = Glory. So big points there. Secondly, most of the other characters are kind of lame. In fact, this show was pretty fucking bad. But Kanade ruled, before the artists shit the bed and couldn’t draw fucking eyes (or anything else for that matter). You want to see why else she’s awesome? See this post.

Azumanga Daioh – Tomo Takino Kimura Sensei

Tomo rules.

Now first of all, this was a tough call between Tomo and Osaka. Oh and by the way, anyone who is complaining right now (I know you’re out there) about why Chiyo didn’t win because she’s “so cute and blah blah blah.”….shut the fuck up. I don’t care. Tomo’s the best (even though Osaka is really fucking close), and what’s more, here’s why:

  1. She’s impulsive. Remember when she threw Chiyo’s keys into the woods because she wondered what it would be like if they lost the keys? That’s showing real zeal and character. I love it.
  2. Actually that first quote is almost enough to prove my point, but I’ll continue….She slacks nicely. Now when class time rolled around in high school, I found it to be an ample time to slack off and take naps. Even yesterday, I had a paper due, but I didn’t overwork, I simply ignored the problem (doing the paper) and it went away (it was optional, but I really should have done it). Of course, college desks make it hard to nap on, they’re so fucking small. plus I don’t sleep much anymore.
  3. She reminds me of me (or how I used to be). Fucking retarded. (I miss having a shitload of energy, and bouncing off the walls). I used to be so impulsive and eccentric that I didn’t know what to do with myself. Then this year it all disappeared. I fucking matured. I’m pissed off that I matured. It’s all this ISSS’s fault, letting me organize my thoughts and shit. FUNGUL!

This should probably be a tie between her and Osaka. Osaka fucking rules.

Well I debated for a while, and then I went looking for the clip where Tomo throws the keys, and I found this one:

I totally forgot about this dude. He was funny as something that you laugh really hard at (like how shitty my analogies are). Kimura was my favorite (but Osaka and Tomo still kick ass). Azumanga Daioh was the shit.

  1. That is a great idea, actually. So far, I haven’t seen any of the shows you mentioned so I can’t comment specifically 😦

  2. Ah! My Goddess! – agreed
    Akikan! – Kakeru
    Aoi Hana – agreed by default (they’re all the same: little, confused, crybaby lesbians)
    Asu no Yoichi – agreed by default (they’re all awesome)
    Asura Cryin’ – agreed (though I only saw about 3 episodes)
    Azumanga Daioh – Sakaki

  3. I dropped .//hack after the second episode. Not enough to pick a character.
    I dropped 07-Ghost after the 5th episode. Too gay. Wait… I usually like gay! Goes to show how shitty the show is.
    I haven’t got around to watch Samurai Afro. Dammit!!
    Ah! My Goddess – Is yet to finish -__-
    Asu no Yoichi. Have to agree. She’s not as annoying as her oppai sister,
    Asura Cryin – Haven’t watch it yet.
    Azumanga Daioh… dropped it after 3 episodes. It’s too fucking ecchi.

    • You should finish Azumanga Daioh. If you can just ignore all those boobs jumping at you and those situations where the male enters the *insert place where females get naked here*, you’ll find an intricated plot with many sub-plots and deep characters.

  4. Aoi Hana, I never really stuck with it just because of time issues, but yeah, I’d definitely agree. But idk about people not reading this post. Honestly, I think it’s a great way for people to discover some anime shows they’ve never seen before or at least remember some of the shows they were going to look at, and never got to. Nice post bro 😀 Oh & btw, my blogroll entry has changed. It’s ‘FinallyAnime’ but it looks like you don’t have it up 😦 anyways, peace out and keep up the good-ass, funny-ass, quality-ass posts.

  5. @ adaywithoutme: More like, why didn’t anyone else think of it? I’m sure someone must have.

    @ TJ: Yea, some anime characters were tough to write about but I put down everything I thought that I remembered….If I get any info wrong feel free to completely chew me out on it. One anime I couldn’t even put a favorite character because I couldn’t remember it at all.

    @ animekritik: You haven’t seen Azumanga Daioh? Shammmeeee.

    @ Refuse to Come Wack: This could be the best, most relevant comment you’ve made on this ISSS.

    @ Baka-Raptor: I wonder if I’ve watched any shows that you haven’t seen yet….I somehow doubt it, seeing as you’ve seen about three times as many shows as I have. Azumanga Daioh was one of those shows where pretty much every character was good.

    @ kluxorious: Watch Afro Samurai now. Also, I think you meant to say that Akane-iro was dropped because it was too ecchi, there was no ecchi in Azumanga Daioh.

    @ FaS: I have it up as “It’s Finally Anime”, so it’s under “I”. I could change that in a second. According to you, my posts apparently have several asses. Nice.

  6. I haven’t seen a lot of these.

    I liked Azumanga Daioh a lot too though, but I can probably give best character from it to Osaka, although probably not that teacher.

    Aoi Hana is awesome in every way. I loved it, but not Kyouko all that much. I liked A-chan.

    Sorry I haven’t been keeping up with your posts; it’s been a long week…

  7. I’ve always felt that you had a moe side to you. However, I didn’t want to make a bogus claim without strong backing.

    But reading this post and seeing this list. Hehehe.
    I’d say I’m not too far off. Xp

  8. @ klux: As always, I am always right unless I’m wrong.

    @ Yi: Don’t apologize for not keeping up with posts….it’s just a blog after all.

    @ blur: Just because I pick a character doesn’t mean that I like them. As an example, in Akikan and Akane-iro, I didn’t like most of the characters in the show, so my “favorite choices” won be default. In some cases, like Akane-iro, I actually did kind of like them anyway (Akikan was kind of just, whatever). Likewise, Asura Cryin’ became so bad that Kanade won simply for the fact that she’s heterochromian.

    Basically, some picks may indeed be moe characters (I don’t hate them all, as long as they aren’t characters bases soley on moe (like Mikuru who I hate)).

    Pure Moe is still my least favorite type of character.
