Every show I’ve seen, and the best characters from each show:
.hack//SIGN – 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!
2X2 Shinobuden – Shinobu
To be honest, there was never really anything that special about the characters. The show itself was really good. I enjoyed it a lot, and I’m surprised, now, to find that none of the characters really stood out. The main reason that I’m choosing Shinobu is due to not only her airheadedness that brings a lot of comedy to the show, but also for her complete lesbianism, which brought joy to my face on several occasions.
07 Ghost – Frau
*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
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.
Air Master – Kaori Sakiyama
Why? At first, she just wants to be a supermodel. Instead, she somehow becomes a complete bad ass. She gets progressively better as the show goes on, but what I really like about her is the fact that she NEVER stays down. You can beat the shit out of her, and she’ll still try and whoop your ass and talk shit to your face. She’s a crazy psyco. I mean, she’s gotten fired from like…449585839 jobs because she always ends up beating someones ass or something. She rules.
Ah! My Goddess! – Urd
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
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
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.
Angel Beats! – Kanade Tachibana
Not only is Kanade awesome because she satisfies me with her emotionless veil, but she also provides plenty of humor from her extremely literal ways of thinking.
Aoi Hana – 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).
Apocalypse Zero – Tsumiko Horie
She reminds me of Sonic for some reason, and Sonic is actually awesome. AZ was funny.
Arakawa Under The Bridge – Maria
I guess I have a fetish for characters named Maria. Maria from Hayate is arguably the best female character ever, and here we have another Maria of awesomeness. I was GOING to choose Nino, because she’s pretty much a perfect girl if she existed in real life (she’s a nutjob), but Maria’s sharp tongue is just too awesome to pass up. She insults people with a smile on her face, and that’s awesome.
Aria the Animation – Akira Himeya
As I said in my review of the show (which was included in my review of everything else), Akira isn’t a pussy. She’ll do what needs to be done to make you awesome at your job, but she still doesn’t come off as a bitch. She’s much better to watch than any of the other pushovers in this lame show.
Asu no Yoichi – Chihaya Ikaruga
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
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.
Avatar: The Last Airbender – Zuko
As I said in my review, Zuko is just…..he was so fun to watch. He went from a bad guy to a good guy sure, but the way he struggled through it all was so….real.
Take a look at Zuko’s family. They’re a fucking mess. His dad is a tyrant who really doesn’t give a shit about any of is children, or even his wife. Apparently the family was at one time normal, but we don’t get to see any of that. Zuko’s father, Fire Lord Ozai, perferred his sister, who is a CRAZY FUCKING BITCH due to the fact that she felt like her mother didn’t like her. However, her father liked her because she had good firebending skills, which kind of pushed Zuko from his father’s sight. For this reason, perhaps, Zuko was kind of a mama’s boy growing up, and this of course, helped make Azula crazy as fuck, because she felt like she was never accepted or loved by her mother. Every problem in this family was a vicious cycle. This family is so fucked up that I don’t even know if I’m explaining this right, but seeing Azula literally lose her mind in the last few episodes was pretty fucking awesome to watch. I mean, some people lose it, and then some people REALLY FUCKING LOSE IT. She lost her sanity it was great.
Why is Zuko so awesome? Change. He goes through a very realistic back-and-forth-up-and-down-good-and-bad battle with himself and with the world around him. From the beginning he was a brown child through and through.
Oh what’s that? You haven’t heard of this term before? Allow me to explain:
Brown Child (n)
1. A child with 1 or more siblings who is labeled least important/not as good/favored less than his or her siblings
Ex: Jeff’s sister Lauren seems to get everything while Jeff gets the short end of the stick. He’s clearly abrown child.
Zuko is the clear brown child. His sister is better at fighting and clearly favored by his father. Meanwhile, Zuko gets banished by his father (not to mention scarred in the face) and is forced to live his days desperately trying to somehow regain his father’s respect; and through this constant inner and outer struggle he perseveres and eventually becomes the leader of his country. It was an awesome thing to see.
Oh and I loved how he had another persona/alias as the blue mask. Bad ass shit right there.
Azumanga Daioh – Tomo Takino Kimura Sensei
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Baccano! – Claire Stanfield aka Vino aka Rail Tracer
Guess who my favorite character is in Baccano!? It was going to be Ladd Russo, because of his lust for killing and bloodshed, but instead, it has to be Rail Tracer, who literally does whatever he wants and pretty much owns the world. plus he does things like grind a persons face into the ground from a moving train, until the person face is….well…..gone.
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu! – Shōko Kirishima
I like Kirishima because she’s a crazy bitch. She doesn’t talk much, and stalks/is obsessed with Yuji to the point of incredible psychoticness. Honestly, I wish I could find a girl like this (not really). I felt like she made this show hilarious and awesome. Of course, so did the voyeur….it was really a toss-up between them.
Basquash! – Iceman Hotty
How the hell could a dude who delivers a beat down with a basketball to people’s faces NOT be my favorite character? Iceman is awesome. I’m not going to say much about his INSANE past, because that might ruin the semi-BAMs, but his signature move is to chuck a ball as fast as he can at shit, and yell DESTROY as he does it (and then the ball pretty much destroys whatever it hits). He rules.
B Gata H Kei – Kazuki Kosuda
I mean, she’s just awesome. Whether she’s walking around naked, or trying to get her brother laid, it’s like nothing really bothers her (except in the last episode where something Kosuda asks her about sex makes her kick his ass). She’s awesome. Everyone else was kind of boring to be honest.
Berserk – Caska
Clearly, Caska was completely awesome. Guts was completely awesome as well, but I guess I just have something in my heart that twinges when I see a bad ass female character, and Caska fit the bill perfectly. What made her even better was how much she changed over time. Gradually, she became a bit more womanly yet still contained her bad ass nature. She kicked ass and remains one of my favorite female characters ever.
Birdy the Mighty Decode (both seasons) – Nataru
What I really like was the introduction of Nataru, a childhood friend of Birdy. Because of him we get to see all sorts of flashbacks of Birdy’s past and shit, but that’s not the main reason why I like him. Like Birdy, he is an Ixioran. Unlike Birdy, he was a failure. Most Ixiorans possess suprhuman traits and abilities, while he possessed none….for a while anyway. In this series, he finally realizes his powers, and uses them to MURDER THE SHIT OUT OF EVERYONE. Like psychotically. It was awesome. But the greatness doesn’t stop there, besides being a crazy psycho killer hellbent on getting revenge, he can also TRAVEL THROUGH FUCKING TIME, which made this show FUCKING AWESOME AS FUCKING GOD DAMN FUCK.
Black Blood Brothers – Jiro Mochizuki
- I remember that I liked this show, but unfortunaly I can’t remember shit about it. That’s pretty shitty.
- Jiro had a sword, so he wins (even thought he completely ripped off Alucard’s character design).
Black Cat – Train Heartnet
Let’s get one thing clear, Black Cat was fucking awesome, and Train Heartnet was one of the main reasons. Granted, this show was loaded with awesome characters, but Train man, he wrecked it all.
- He can block bullets with his gun because he has the reflexes of…well…..a cat.
The end. He’s the man.
Black Lagoon – Revy
This is a no brainer, as Revy is one of the most awesome characters in the history of the world (I know that sounds like exageration, but it isn’t). Btw, if you haven’t seen Black Lagoon, then not only should you punch yourself in the balls (or ovaries, depending), but you should stop reading this post and go watch this fucking show now. Revy is a bad ass, end of story, I can’t even explain this because I shouldn’t really have to.
And what ever happened to that third season of Black Lagoon promised wayyy way back? That was kind of annoying. Looks like I’ll have to pick up the manga (I hate picking up manga, but for more Black Lagoon, I’ll do it).
Blood + – Saya
That’s some great art. It makes Saya look a bit more bad ass than she is, but when her eyes get red, she’s fucking awesome. I first saw this show on Adult Swim, and decided that I had to watch it (subbed). I almost picked Diva due to the fact that she slaughtered everyone, but then I decided not to, because Saya is sickkk. (I love red eyes and samurai swords. And blood. In case you haven’t picked up on that during the past, like, 8 months or something).
Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan! – Dokuro Mitsukai
This is the funniest show ever. Plain and simple. Well, I mean, Detroit Metal City is up there. Hmm, this is a debatable fact. DMC might be funniest…whatever, that doesn’t matter right now. I have seen it about three times, which is more than I can say for any other anime (although it’s only like, 6 episodes long). Likewise, this was a hard choice, as the characters themselves are all hilarious. In the end I give it to Dokuro chan, because without her killing people by beating them to death and then bringing them back to life, this show would just be a little funny.
Candy Boy – Kanade Sakurai
Candy Boy. No boys involved (I think someone made that joke on some blog before). Anyway, there are really only 4 characters here, and as far as I’m concerned they’re all lesbians. Three of them are sisters, by the way. Why did I choose Kanade as the best characters? Well, she’s more mature than her sister/girlfriend, Yukino. Also, I like her character design more, and she’s sick at art, which is always awesome. She wears the pants in the relationship, but also has a soft side, and I think that her character as a whole has more depth than the others.
CANAAN – Taxi Cab Driver
Am I serious right now? A Taxi Driver? he was in like, 3 episodes. He had like, 6 lines in the entire show! Well, you know what? When you have an ISSS, you can chose whoever you want as your favorite character. And despite the fact that Canaan has a fucking cool character design, and sick ass powers, along with parkour moves that resemble Faith from Mirror’s Edge, the Taxi Driver has what Canaan does not…..a TAXI.
- Despite being a normal taxi driver from Shanghai, he has no problems with driving his taxi off of a bridge and onto a building. He also doesn’t get fired for doing something like that, because he’s the fucking man.
- Basically, this Taxi Driver is what Bill the Ass-Kicker would be like if he drove a Taxi: Fucking Awesome.
Cardcaptor Sakura – Tomoyo Daidouji
*This show was dropped at 9
Should I even include this? There’s really not any good characters, and I realized after I started watching that this show was dumb, and definitely not good. I’ll be honest, I hate all of the characters in this show, hence I dropped after only 9. I guess I’ll go with Tomoyo, for the sole reason that she’ll grow up to be a respectful lesbian.
Chaos;HEAD – Ayase Kishimoto
Chaos;HEAD was an awesome anime, and I liked it a lot. Now, my art teacher for screen-printing tells me that you can’t just say you “like something,” you have to explain why. And I will, with bullets….actually, I’ll use numbers.
- Supernatural Powers
- Dynamic Lead Character
- Many BAM Moments
- A pacing that is fast, but not too fast (except the last episode, I felt it should have been two episodes, and explained better)
That being said, Ayase is my favorite, because to me, she seems to be a more unique character than the others. Err, well, actually all of the characters are pretty unique, I actually had a touch time deciding to put Ayase up here, or instead vouch for Kozue, who speaks telepathically. In the end, I decided that Ayase was:
- In a rock band
- Has the best character design (I guess this is important to me)
- Has a different way of thinking (6 Dark Knights as opposed to Gigilomaniacs)
Clannad/Clannad ~After Story~ – Kyou Fujibayashi
See my review of Clannad ~ After Story ~: Kyou Chapter.
Claymore: Teresa of the Faint Smile
I was going to choose Deneve, but she really doesn’t get awesome until later in the manga, so I’m going with Teresa, who is probably still more awesome than Deneve, except for the fact that she dies, which sucks. If you’ve seen her fight, than you know that she’s unbeatable, except that she stupidly shows mercy and pity for Priscilla, which ultimately got her beheaded. I for one don’t believe in mercy (especially in sports). Claymore is one of the best anime ever. Manga is too. I just had to say that.
Chibi Vampire Karin (Karin) – Anju Maaka
She doesn’t talk. I should say, she has one of those personalities. Yea, I can’t really remember much about the actual characters in this show. I guess it wasn’t that great. Also, the anime is actually just called Karin, but for some reason I have the manga name listed, and I’m too lazy move it down. So yea.
Chobits – Chi
Don’t get me wrong, I loved this anime (does that make me a fucking homo? Don’t care.), but as far as characters go, there really wasn’t much to choose from. Chi isn’t really that great of a character, I mean, she’s not even a living thing. but she’s better than the moron who fell in love with her (how do you fall in love with a robot? How much of a loser are you dude?). First of all, robots can’t love or feel emotion at all. Whatever, I’m not going to get into it. And I know that Chi is technically a persecon or whatever, but it’s really the same thing. In the end, I chose Chi because you have to touch her vagina (or the place where a real girl would have a vagina) to turn her on. That’s right, I just dropped a FACTUAL PUN on you.
Code-E -Keisuke Ebihara
Here’s how bad this show was. Keisuke wins because he is wearing a cool Hawaiian shirt…and it’s not even that cool. God this show was bad.
Code Geass – Lelouch Lamperouge/Zero
Do I really have to explain? Ahhhh fuck. Lelouch is fucking awesome. I’m just going to list in bullets:
- Nasty at Chess.
- Nasty at formulating plots, as well as creating strategies.
- Looks fucking awesome.
- Is an anti-hero, which I love.
- Provided me with many BAM moments.
- And so on and so forth.
Code Geass rocked hard.
Cowboy Bebop – Spike Spiegel
Spike kicks ass. The end.
Okay I’ll put some work in. Why he kicks ass is really not a question that needs answering, but he kicks as firstly because he’s just so smooth. Take his fighting style for example. I forget specifically what episode it was (it was the one with the flower I think), but Spike actually shows the audience his technique, which is use the other person’s momentum against them. Needless to say (I really need to stop using that phrase), his style not only works, but makes him look really cool, smooth, and nonchalant when he fights.
Secondly, his general demeanor matches his fighting skill. He takes everything in stride, and doesn’t get flustered or agitated easily. He’s the man.
D.Gray Man – Road Kamelot
*This show was dropped at 41
So D.Gray Man was dropped because it was all pretty much bullshit. All fillers apparently. Too bad too, because it had such promise to be a great show. I hear that the manga is really good, and I don’t doubt that, but I’m far to lazy to actually read it. However, the anime did have some sick characters, the best of them belongnig to the Noah clan. And the best of these being, of course, Road (Rhode?). She’s awesome, and here’s why:
- Her skin color is actually gray….I wonder if she can still get a cab?
- HORIZONTAL STRIPED SOCKS (or whatever those are)! YES!
- Purple hair! Helloooo, she’s gotta be in my top coolest looking characters list!
But enough about looks, she’ s awesome because she’s got that something about her, sort of an arrogance. Arrogance is awesome, especially when your dressed in high, horizantal striped socks and have purple hair and gray skin. She almost reminds me of Franken Fran with those marks on her forehead, which just adds to how cool she looks. Oh, and she likes candy. Oh, and despite her looks, she’s actually one of the oldest clan members. If you read this wikipedia page about her, you can see even more reasons why she’s one of the coolest characters ever. Sadism? Fucking awesome. Too bad Wikipedia is always sometimes wrong.
Deadman Wonderland – Senji Kiyomasa
This was a tough one. While I loved Makina’s smokin hot bad assness, and Shiro’s crazy split personality, I have to go with Senji’s supreme bad assery. I mean, it’s hard to say no to someone who just loves to kick ass. Not to mention….eye patch? YES.
Deathnote – Light Yagami
Okay, so the way that he kills people isn’t really “bad ass.” I might even say that it probably doesn’t even feel like you’re really killing someone when all you do is write down their name and picture their face. But, God damn it, Light has got to be the best tactician in anime. Lelouch couldn’t even put up with the likes of Light. I mean, Light planned….well, I don’t want to say exactly. But the longer that the show carried on without a BAM moment, the bigger the BAM moment was when it came. And it was mainly all Light (L was cool too, in fact it took me a while to decided between Light and L..but Light got the better of L in the end, soo).
Light can almost never be outsmarted (until the inevitable end….and a kid beat him? Really? That kid was like….13 years old.)
Denpa Teki na Kanojo – Ochibana
Here’s a character who could be one of my favorites, if she wasn’t just in one OVA episode (two more are slated to come out, however). Personally, I love the hair, I love the weirdness, and if you’re ever getting beat to death by a delusional girl with a bat, she’ll somehow come get you and rescue you. She’s almost the perfect female character.
Detroit Metal City – Soichi Negishi/Johannes Krauser II
Is there anything better than an alter ego/skitso/etc? Nope. Not much. I almost thought about picking the President, because whenever she talks it’s just fucking hilarious. But come on…really?
Negishi is a pussy. Krauser kicks ass. Put them both together and you’ve got a character that sometimes loses his mind, and calls the girl he likes a pig whore, and that he’s going to rape her. Then he makes up some excuse, and she believes him. Negishi kind of sucks, but without him, Krauser would only be a little bit kick-ass awesome. I don’t know if you noticed, but Krauser raped a tower.
D.N. Angel – Emiko Niwa
I’m going to summerize this choice with one sentence:
She encourages her son to steal.
What more can you ask for?
Dragonball – Goku
I mean, come on, Goku wins in this series hands down. You can’t really go wrong with a kid who’s pretty much oblivious to everything around him, including how unnatural his own strength is, and kicks ass all over the place. He’s just fucking awesome. And he’s got a tail. You know, I used to want a tail at one point in my life, just to see what it feels like.
Dragonball Z – Vegeta
See that picture? I shouldn’t have to explain why Vegeta is the best character in DBZ. He’s fucking awesome. He’s a bad ass Sayain with a sick ass voice (dubbed version). He’s also evil (until they make a mistake and make him a good guy). He kicks ass and is the shit. Easily my favorite character in DBZ, and one of my favorite characters ever.
Dragonball GT – Goku/Vegeta Fusion
Yea. I’ll let that video be the explanation. Also, on farther inspection, I need to rewatch this show because I really can only remember bits and pieces.
Durarara!! – Shizuo Heiwajima
Let’s see, what’s the best way to explain this……….at one point, he cuts a car in half with a highway sign. The end.
Elfen Lied – Lucy
Anime. Yea. I know.” src=”https://glothelegend.files.wordpress.com/2009/11/konachan-com-62745-blood-close-elfen_lied-lucy-signed-vector-watermark.jpg” alt=”” width=”500″ height=”281″ />
I don’t know if this is a screen shot or if someone made it, but it’s the only decent picture of child Lucy I could find on Google. Never mind, I found this on Konachan.com, which I only just found. It has awesome wallpapers, but also a lot of porn. I picked Child-Lucy because let’s face it. A psychotic child that kills people around her violently with invisible arms? That’s just awesome. And if you want to look in depth, then I guess you could look at how deep of a character Lucy is.
- She developed ill feelings toward humans after all of the trama that seemed to befall her in her life.
- This then developed into a split personality disorder when she was shot in the head (helmet).
- Even after this, her “evil” side develops from an evil person to a good person, leaving Nyu (her good side) behind.
That’s a very very basic view of her depth, but I’m trying to make these reviews quick, because who the fuck likes reading? The manga is better if you want depth. The end of the manga (SPOILER) is probably the only logical solution (albeit a bit messy), but is also kind of sad.
Ergo Proxy – Re-L Mayer
Ergo Proxy was one of the best shows that I’ve seen. I felt like the whole atmosphere of the show made me feel like I was going through the same things that the characters were. Also, it reminded me strongly of The Matrix, one of my top ten favorite movies. Re-l is awesome because, well, first, her name is cool (both looking and sounding), and second (and more importantly), she is a girl who is dark, cold, but also just a normal girl, who gets scared at monsters that break into her house (literally, break) after a shower. I mean, just a normal girl. She’s got the swagger, she’s got the appearance (literally one of the coolest character designs I’ve seen, even though it’s pretty simple), and she’s got feelings. She matches the show perfectly. Of course, there’s more to Re-l than meets the eye, and I’m not going to go into details…..ERGO PROXY IS AWESOME. I WISH THEY MADE MORE SEASONS!
There is some bullshit Greek mythology, but I just ignore that.
Excel Saga – Nabeshin (aka Shinichi Watanabe)
This one should have been a no brainer for people. I mean, Nabeshin is easily the best part of this show (a show that I enjoyed because of it’s random/retarded humor and long sentences that were spoken very quickly by characters such as Excel and that never really had any point but were spoken in that way nontheless that kind of reminded me of Ace Ventura when he takes a deep breath to explain something very long and then eventually runs out of breath right when he’s done talking.).
Nabeshin is just a fucking awesome character. The picture (which I found on Google) does a good job at explaining a bit of my reasoning. He might be one of the top ten best characters ever (or maybe not, but he kicks ass).
Fate/Stay Night – Saber
First of all, who doesn’t like Saber? That’s right, no one. No one except DOUCHBAGS. So yea, Fate/Stay Night kicked a lot of ass, and I’m very fucking excited about the movie that’s coming out (or came out, (depending on whether or not I ever finish this post). Saber. Is. Awesome.
- She looks FUCKING AWESOME COOL.
- She is KING OF FUCKING ARTHUR, WHO IS FUCKING AWESOME COOL BECAUSE KINGS ARE USUALLY GUYS, AND NO, SHE DOESN’T HAVE A PENIS (assumed).
- She’s a nasty fighter, and in this aspect also remains to be FUCKING AWESOME COOL.
Excuse me, I have a boner. Not for anything perverted, but because my cock recognized FUCKING AWESOME COOL SHIT, and thusly, it stands for that shit. At this point, my cock doesn’t even want sex, it’s just showing appreciation. It’s that same as when you stand and clap when the President walks in to make a speech. It’s a matter of respect…..my cock does that…….
Yea so anyway, Saber’s personality is one that I like, cold at times, and a bit non understanding toward certain things. Hmm, that’s a bit confusing…..let me say instead, that her pairing with Shiro is a main reason as to why I like her so much, because their chemisty helps illumiate certain things about her, for example, Shiro always try to protect her, and she insists that she doesn’t need protecting, and all that kind of shit.
That’s it? That’s your example? You didn’t explain shit!
Fight Ippatsu! Juden-chan!! – Arrester Blanket
Wow, what a weird name. Here last name is Blanket? Really? Well anyway, she’s the best character in this anime.
Arrester starts off as a girl who is strict. She obeys rules and doesn’t really put up with nonsense (plug). As the show goes one, we learn that she is a complete masochist. She fantasizes about getting smacked in the face with a bat, and that was the best part about her character, and why I chose her over anyone else.
FLCL – Haruko Haruhara
I ahevnt- whoops -havent’t really talked about FLCL much on this beautiful ISSS, but for what it’s worth, this is one of the coolest fucking shows ever made on the face of the planet. If it wasn’t only 6 episodes (which is a perfect length for the series if you ask me), then I might have to put this on my top ten. Actually, fuck it, I should at least put this in my top twenty. (To be honest, I have no idea what my top anything is, it changes in my head 6 times a week. The other day I thought about taking InuYasha off the list completely, mainly because I’m so dissapointed with the new season. That’s right, disappointed.) My computer background is actually this, and I don’t think it will ever change in the next year.
Anyway, finding the best character in this show is slightly difficult, because the characters are all fucking awesome. In the end I decided on the default awesome character, and went with Haruko, because she’s a crazy mutha fucka.
Fruits Basket – Kyo
I feel like he’s the only one in this show who has a cool personality, besides Kagura (who is a skitso which is awesome). Actually, why isn’t Kagura my favorite character? She threatening him into proposing to her with a boulder! That’s fucking actually cool. All the characters in this anime seemed flat to me, but I’ve been over that. Kyo is cool because he’s always pissed. I suspect that the reason he is so pissed isn’t because he can’t win a fight, but because he’s stuck in FUCKING FRUITS BASKET.
He changes into a cat, and cats are cool, and he might not always (ever) win his fights, but he keeps trying, and doesn’t back down, and that’s respectable.
Fullmetal Alchemist (season 1) – Edward Elric
This was probably the hardest one yet…..sort of. I mean, by now you may know how I feel about some characters, but at the end of the series (episode 49 to be exact and precise), Ed became the fucking MAN, and I have to give him props for that. I mean, he transfigured himself. HELLO people. BALLS.
Besides that, there’s the fact that he:
- Is nasty at alchemy.
- Has automail for one arm and one leg, and transfigures his arm into a weapon at some points (oh sure he can do that, but when his arm breaks it’s somehow impossible to transfigure back).
- He doesn’t need to draw a fucking gay circle to perform alchemy.
- He gets made when people call him short, and this is funny to me (and never gets old….they could do a whole episode of short jokes and I’d probably like it maybe possibly).
So far I’m liking the second season even more (which means a lot., Bones is doing work.
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood – Liutenant Riza Hawkeye
AAWWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. You could pretty much take any character and I’d be able to make a case for them being my favorite character.
Full Metal Panic (all seasons) – Melissa Mao
That’s right, I didn’t choose Sousuke. I mean, this show is loaded with awesome characters, but I had to go with my main she-bitch on this one, Melissa Mao.
- She drinks beer (why do I consider this a plus? what’s my deal here?)
- She’s got that Ghost in the Shell haircut going, and to be honest, it works better for her than it does for the Major. (I’m a sucker for short hair on girls…but not TOO short)
- Kind of like Shiro from Fate/Stay Night, she does good with Kurz, because she’s able to put him down whenever he makes a sexual advancement toward him, and this in turn does a good job of displaying her personality, which is at times, abbrasive (like sandpaper…..sandpaper is abrasive too.)
I like her. BAM.
Futakoi Alternative – Nishimori Hasriyama
He brings nothing but out of control crazy wildness that makes my boompants explode with light.
Gantz – Kei Kurono
Compared to the manga, that anime for Gantz sucked balls. But by itself, it was pretty good if not for the shitty gay ending that sucked and was shitty. And Kei kicked some grade A ass in both the manga and the anime. Let’s see, by the time the anime ended, Kei had pretty much taken charge on every mission, and killed all of the aliens by himself. Yup, he’s the man. (The manga is 50000000000000000000 times better though…I’m not even supposed to be talking about manga in these posts, that’s how good it is).
Ghost in the Shell – Major Mokoto Kusanagi
Oh yea, I used a topless shot of the Major to add a little promiscuity to this post.
Everyone has seen Ghost in the Shell. At least the movie (which was obviously good). Now, like Melissa Mao from FMP, she sports this gay haircut that actually is cool. It works for Melissa Mao. For the Major? Well, personally, I think her hair is too bushy, but honestly, it’s become the look she’s become famous for. Now comes to the actual substance of this character review:
The major does not actually have a body. Yup, that’s not her body. at the end of the first film, she was in a little girl’s body, which just goes to show…..uh……she……she’s cool?
Okay look, she’s sick at fighting has a great English voice actress, and she’s generally awesome. Trying to write why is as confusing to me as watching this show subbed is.
Golden Boy – Reiko Terayama
Most people would frown upon a girl choosing to have sex with her motorcycle. Well I don’t. In fact, I’d say that this is just the kind of super horny girl I need!
Great Teacher Onizuka – Urumi Kanzaki
WHHHAAATTTTT!? You chose her over ONIZUKA!? DAMN RIGHT I DID! Onizuka was the fucking man, but God damn it, Kanzaki was the fucking woman.
Firstly, she’s a heterochromian. If I ever meet an actual female heterochromian (who is a noticeable heterochromian, not like, one eye is brown and the other is hazel…those are like the same color in terms of eyes) who is of age, then I will date her, even if she’s fat and ugly. The relationship might only last an hour or so, but I will be dating her non the less.
Secondly, she’s a fucking genius. So smart, in fact, that the school pretty much lets her do whatever she wants. Oh, you don’t have to come to class, don’t worry about it.
Thirdly, building on the fact that she’s a genius (literally), she is also not someone you ever want to cross or fuck with, based on her cold personality. SHE’S SO FUCKING AWESOMRGONOSEFSIN!!!
Gunslinger Girl – Triela
It’s been a while since I watched any Gunslinger Girl action. The anime is good, but I still only saw the first 5 episodes of Il Teatrino (the second season). I gotta hit that other shit up you know (you won’t really get that link unless you’re Robert, or skip in to like, 5 minutes). But yea, Triela takes that cake with some ease for this one. She’s a little bit more mature than the other girls, and she’s also a little more fucking awesome than the other girls. She’s got that sarcastic awesomeness with the badassery dressery (she dresses fucking awesomely). Just look at her. She’s got the tie the vest the shoes and the rest…..even she doesn’t have a hint of a breast…………ICE. (garantee I lost almost everyone there). Triela isn’t just awesome, she’s the fuckin shitttttttt.
Hanaukyo Maid Team – Tarou Hanaukyo
This is our main character, and the reason why I think he’s the best is because he’s so laid back that it’s ridiculous. Literally nothing bothers him, it’s awesome. Mind you, all of the characters in this anime were pretty awesome, and I even thought about going with Mariel for a second, which would put a lot of Rie Tanaka characters in this section.
Hataraki Man – Hiroko Matsukata
As the anime title implies, Matsukata is a real working man. She is often told that she is rather masculine, because she smokes a lot, puts all of her effort into her work, and when she puts her “switch on”, and really gets down to business, she seems quite manly, this is probably why she always eats natto rolls (isn’t natto filled with like….false estrogen? Idk I heard that somewhere).
She’s got it tough, I would have succumbed to a heart attack if I worked like she did. She does it all, and she’s fucking nasty at what she does. Raise a glass, Matsukata kicks ass.
Hayate no Gotoku! – Maria
Wow, two Rie Tanaka voiced characters in a row. Honestly, these two characters just show how awesome Rie Tanaka is at voicing, but I’m here to talk about Maria, who is obviously the best character from Hayate no Gotoku. That’s right, not Hinagiku. She’s third, Jenny is second. To be truthful, there isn’t a single character in Hayate that I don’t think is absolutely awesome. Frankly, I’m still bitter that she didn’t win the voting, but whatever, she wins in my own mind, and here comes a tremendous, in depth character analysis, right in your eye:
- Age – 17,18
- Height – 158 cm
- Weight – 42 kg
- Blood Type – O
- Birthday – December 24th
Yeah, I copied that directly from Wikipedia, which I know I shouldn’t do (cuz wiki sucks), but I trust it in this case. So why does Maria kick ass.
Maria is awesome at everything she does, she cleans, cooks, is a literal genius….I mean, she’s pretty much perfect. But it’s her inadeuacies that make her even better. For example, she sucks at disguises. For example, the picture above was a disguise to fool Hayate (which actually worked somehow). You know what, I’m just going to link to that page where I explained a whole lot of awesomeness regaurding Maria: Here.
There. Now with that link, I was able to put up more pictures of Maria that I wanted to put up, without actually putting them up (for this post these posts, I limit one picture per character). Maria should turn into an actual person, so I could marry her (why was she not first here? Bad decision on my part).
He Is My Master – Mitsuki Sawatari
Here’s a cute little girl in a maid outfit, right? Wrong, Mitsuki always acts innocent and happy, but really she’s a scheming plotting person. She uses her sister for her own profit and besides that, has probably not one care in life, which is awesome, and the reason why she takes this spot over Pochi, the awesome alligator (which is her pet). He is my Master is actually a pretty good show.
Higashi no Eden – Akira Takizawa
Nothing phases this guy. He never gets nervous or anything, and takes everything in stride. Not only that, but his plans are pretty sick. I mean, here’s a guy who wiped his own memory as part of his plans. He’s also not afraid to whip out his Johnny in front of American Police officers. “Thank God it was cold out.” He said.
High School Girls – Uhhhhhnderwear Girl?
Speaking of memory wipes, I must have had one done on me after watching High School Girls, because even after looking up Bio’s for the characters, I don’t remember a God damn thing about them. I watched this show around the same time as Tsuyokiss, and I remember that show. What the hell? But anyway, I’ll pick the girl in the picture who’s sitting on the the girl, because he underwear is kinda cool, and this was one of the only pictures that I could find on google that wasn’t boring. That’s it.
High School of the Dead – Saeko Busujima
I’m pretty sure that video explained everything, but just in case the video ever gets taken down, I’ll tell you that Saeko is awesome because she loves to kill, and she has a samurai sword. “Girl with Katana” is one of my favorite character types.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni – Rena Ryuugu
Well, this was the hardest descision yet. I went back and forth between Mion, Shion, and Rena, and even debated Keiichi for a while. But I think in the end I chose the best and I’ll tell you why.
First of all, Rena is weird. She digs through trash fro treasures, loves cute things (even if they aren’t really that cute) and generally is just an odd ball. But when she goes berserk, it’s just something awesome.
When I think of Higurashi, I think of two things, Rena’s axe thing, Rena’s crazy eyes, and this picture. God this show was good. But anyway, the fact that Rena goes from a girl who’s always happy and loves cute things to a psychotic killer is just awesome. IT AWESOME! Yandere superior!
Honey and Clover – Shinobu Morita
Morita gave some comedy and coolness to what I thought was an otherwise dull and boring anime. Not only is he a bit on the odd side, but his treatment of Hagu coupled with his already strange ways was something that I, at least, found amusing. Not only that, but sometimes he goes missing for days on end, and then comes back with money. I can’t remember what is job was, or if they even mentioned it, but I would sure like to know.
Looking, back, I probably wouldn’t hate H&C as much as I do now if i were yo watch it again, but there’s no way that will ever happen. I have removed it from my top 5 most hated shows (there’s no way it was worse than K-ON). It would probably be closer to 13 or something if I were to actually rate all of my shows and actually put them in order (there’s no way I’m ever doing that…in fact, after this series of character posts, I’m taking a hiatus….maybe….probably not).
Hyakko – Suzume Saotome
Let me just get this out of the way and say that the character designs ruled for this anime. I especially loved the color schemes. Black, orange, and tan? Perfect. I also enjoyed the show, despite not liking it at first. As far as characters go, Suzume is the obvious choice for best.
- She can eat forever.
- She’s one of those awesome quiet types, I love those characters.
- She follows Torako everywhere, like a slave.
Basically, Suzume is mysterious and unpredictable. I love it.
Ichigo 100% – Satsuki Kitaoji
Junpei, like most harem leads, seems to make the wrong choice in the end and not choose Satsuki. I mean, Satsuki is perfect (for me). She’s the aggressive, athletic type, who obviously loves sex (athletic girls love sex, I just decided that now). Not only that, but DDD breats? Come onnnnn Junpei.
NOTE: While Satsuki would be my final choice, I would still have sex with all of them.
Ikkitousen – Ryomou Shimei
Let me first say, that Ikki Tousen was cool in that it used people from Romance of the Three Kingdoms (Dynasty Warriors). All of the fighters had a spirit of a fighter in them (or something, and Ryomou had Lu Meng, who was pretty cool I guess…….in Dynasty Warriors at least. But after that, I liked her serious attitude, nasty fighting skills, eye patch (eye patches RULLLEEE) and French Maid costume. Yizzerrr.
I actually like Inukami a lot. It was funny, perverted, and contained a solid cast, not to mention an acceptable plot. That’s why it’s a top 20 for me. It took me a while to decide who I liked more, Yoko of Keita. Both have great seiyu (Yui Horie and Jun Fukuyama respectively), but in the end I went with Yoko, because, like Dokuro from Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan, she helps move the plot along, and is a general reason for most of the perverted funniness. For example, she has the ability to teleport things, mainly, Keita’s clothes. Usually when this happens, a police officer happens to show up right on que, and bring him to jail. Keita then becomes known as a pervert, and in jail he meets other perverts, and generally the whole show is hilarious.
Yoko is also not actually an Inukami (dog God?) but a Kitsune (fox God?), and that is kind of cool I guess.
InuYasha – Inuyasha
Wow. This was difficult. Sesshomaru is undeniably the most bad ass in the series, but in terms of overall characters, I think I had to give it to Inuyasha, and here’s why.
First of all, Inuyasha’s personality is pretty much: “What the hell? I’ll beat your ass!” He’s not exactly a tactician when he fights, he kind of just tries to muscle his way through any problems. Want an example? Fuck…pick an episode, I’ll pick episode 6 of the brand new season (a season which, despite being awesome, is moving way to fast for my liking).
In said episode, the gang comes to a man-eating tree, which has had a shard implanted in it by Naraku, thus causing it to revive, despite the seal that Kikyou put on it 50 years earlier. Most of the gang is scratching their heads as to why Naraku would do such a thing. Inuyasha doesn’t give a fuck, he just starts flingin’ windscars at the thing.
Basically, Inuyasha is an impatient half-bad-ass, while Sesshomaru is a patient bad-ass. I am an impatient half bad-ass. I can relate to Inuyasha.
Also, he has three forms, his human form, his half-demon form (regular form), and his full out crazy-ass demon form (the best form). Why is this a good thing? It just is. Since Ilike his full demon form, I’ll talk about that first:
When Inuyasha is full demon, he loses himself completely, and just wants to kill everything, whether they’re friends of not. Episode 52 of the first series? AWESOME. I’ve got that shit memorized. Especially when he jumps up, slices the moth-demon to pieces, and then he lands and like….slides across the ground in a sick-ass pose. Just awesome. But that’s only one reason why Inuyasha edges out his half brother for the top spot, because let’s face, it, Sesshomaru does this kind of thing on a daily basis, except he doesn’t need poses. Therefore, why else should I choose Inuyasha?
Well, he’s got a lot of….ugh…..depth? Not really, but kind of. Got picked on as a kid, and instead of crying about it, he simply decided that all people (or demons) were stupid, and decided, “fuck em.” This is a good point of view for anyone to take, and one that I have personally taken. People suck. On the other end of the spectrum, we have Sesshomaru, the bad-ass FULL FLEDGED DEMON who was always treated as such. People, what we have here is kind of a case of a golden child, and a brown child.
Inuyasha (like me) is a brown child (brown is the color of shit). He was the less liked sibling (apparently), where as Sesshomaru was the golden child, who was treated as the proper one. Now, I say that this is kind of a case of brown/golden child, and not a classic case, because as we see, Inuyasha was given the Tessaiga, and Sesshomaru was given the Tensaiga, a sword who’s purpose was to be absorbed by the Tessaiga. So in the end, Inuyasha was given the better sword by his father. Am I talking in circles? Probably. What I was attempting to say was that Inuyasha had to struggle through life, and that’s sick.
Another reason is the aspect of REVENGE. I love revenge like nothing. Any movie or show about revenge is something that is almost guaranteed to make me happy. In this sense, Inyasha (along with pretty much everyone in the series) is out for revenge against Naraku, who, at one point of another, fucked each character over, except Shippo, who is a pointless character. Sesshomaru does not have any reason for revenge, he just has….I guess I’d call it a gripe against Sesshomaru, which is different then revenge, which is stronger. I feel like, revenge insinuates that someone you’re trying to get back at someone for something that you lost, while a gripe is similar to a verbal dispute, like, “Oh, you did that, to my wife, I’m sorry sir, but I’m going to break your leg.”
Shit, I can’t really put my finger on my I like Inuyasha more than Sesshomaru…..this whole thing was a jumbled mess of shit. I like them both, I guess in the end, I like Inuyasha more because:
- He had it tougher than Sesshomaru
- He’s got a big ass sword
- He’s transformes cooly.
- He’s the fucking man
Ippatsu Kikimusume -Kunyan
This girl gets into so many situations that are life or death…..and somehow she gets out of all of them…..this short (what was it, and OVA?) was awesome.
Jigoku Shoujo – Enma Ai
This one’s a no brainier. Or is it? Honestly, for a main character, Emna Ai doesn’t get much screen time, and when she does, it’s usually just her wisking some poor faggot away to hell. Or is it? I’m asking a lot of questions to confuse you. Let’s take a look at what makes her tick.
So she doesn’t say much…..when has that EVER been a bad thing? The great thing about Emna is that she doesn’t need words to express her self. It isn’t hard to see her general mood during certain times, like when she’s inspecting a customer’s situation. Am I going to use an example? Am I?
Kampfer – Shizuku Sango
Well, originally, I was a huge fan of Akane, but I’ll admit, after a while I couldn’t stop myself from hopping on this badwagon and riding it like a girl that had only recently been introduced to the pleasures of sex. I rode that bandwagon hard, and for good reason too. Shizuku is all of these things:
- Calm and controlling – She never gets riled, and she always has a sneeky plan, even when she doesn’t actually have a sneeky plan.
- Her fan club at school – Her fan club already has accepted the fact that she is way out of their league, so they simply want to be abused by her. Does any other fan club bow down like that? Maybe.
- She knows all.
- She’s just cool. It’s that kind of cool that is tough to describe. Like, we all know that Fonzi is cool. Even if you don’t know why, you know he’s cool (there are several reasons why he’s cool, but for the sake of this argument, let’s pretend we don’t know them).
- She’s assertive. Just like girls like assertive guys, some guys like assertive girls. Unfortunately, Natsuru isn’t one of them, as he is a pussy.
Kamisama Kazoku – Tenko Kamiyama
What can I say? I’m a rooter. Poor, Tenko went through so many emotions. What can you expect though? She may be an angel, but she’s still a young girl in an anime, which means she has no idea what the hell is going on in regards to love or anything. Honestly, she was the whole backbone behind this series. Samatarou was pretty much just another guy, nothing special. I mean, sure, he was the son of God, but that’s neither here nor there. This anime was really about Tenko’s feelings, discovering those feelings, and expressing them, and all of that bullshit, and Tenko fit the bill to the dime. I really liked this anime, and Tenko was awesome.
Kanamemo – Saki Amano
Well, the show sucked balls but I somehow made it through. The choice for best character was up fro grabs between Saki and Mika, and I decided to give it to Saki because she’s the youngest character, but despite that, she is the boss, is more mature than everyone else, and most importantly, is a schemer.
She’s almost a con artist, in that, through manipulation, she is able to increase her money. For example, although her real demeanor is that of a level headed business person, at school (she in like 4th grade) she pretends to be pretty much cute and lovable, when in actuality, she doesn’t give a shit about anyone, and just wants to use them to get money, say, from donated tag sale items, or newspaper subscriptions. And what’s more, she does it well. I’m also pretty sure it’s illegal for her to be working at such a young age, but whatever.
Kanokon – Nozomu Ezomori
One thing about the “quiet, business” type character, is that they’re all the same, to a degree. They all look similar to Yuki Nagato. Nozomu is no anomaly to this typecast. lik Yuki, and many others, she has:
- The blank star
- The semi short hair
- The small/nonexistent breasts
- The quietness, aka, she speaks only when absolutely necessary
Unlike Yuki and many others, she is horny for the male lead, and she can turn into some kind of wolf spirit. What also sets her apart from the other Yuki clones (most of which will be my favorite character in every show that they’re in), is that she loves to make jokes, in her emotionless way of talking, about Chizuru, her rival for Kouta (Kouta, by the way, is one of my least favorite characters ever). She makes fun of her huge tits and her horniness, all in her monotone way of speaking. I love it. The show itself? It was okay.
Karas – Yousuke Otoha
Ummm, excuse me, Karas was the fucking shit? Yes or yes? Yes. Karas kicked ass. One of the main reasons why, was the sick nasty fighting done by this bad ass main character, Yousuke. Not just because he can fight nastily, but because his armor can change into pretty much whatever the fuck he wants. Okay, okay, sick ass fighting and nasty graphics don’t really make a character, so how about this?
Apparently, Yousuke’s mom fucked her own brother (what is WITH Japan and incest?), and silly old bad ass Yousuke was the child of this conjoining of blood realated uglies being bumped. Now, as you know, one of the main reasons why people stopped doing the two person tango with their own relatives is due to the problems which usually showed up in the off spring (hillbillies still haven’t grasped this basic concept). In Yousuke’s case, he was born with a problem. HE CAN’T FEEL PAIN. HOLY SPANKY DOODLE DANDY. B-A = BAD-ASS.
Kaze no Sigma – Kazuma Yagami
So what’s the deal with this fucker? Why do his eyes look like they’re buggin? Well, this mutha fucka was banished from his family, because he was a weak bastard, and lost to a girl. Feeling like a piece of shit he has returned year later with some nasty fucking fighting skills, and he’s pissed. Eventually he doesn’t end up looking for revenge, which is too bad, but the fact that he came back with some serious skills to flaunt, thus surprising everyone in his old family, was awesome.
I don’t think I’ve ever stated this, but I love to see other people regret. Hmm, let me re-iterate, because I don’t want to seem like a completely heartless bastard. I love when someone counts someone else out, but then the latter comes back stronger, and the former regrets that they ever counted the latter out. For me, that’s a BAM moment.
Kemeko Deluxe! – Misaki Hayakawa
Wait, is this the first Rie Kugimiya voiced character on the list? I can’t believe it took so long, and I also never expected to put this character as my favorite character for this specific show. Basically, I didn’t expect Misaki to be on this list (although I never ruled it out).
Kemeko Deluxe was pretty good in my opinion. It was funny, I loved the OP, the characters were awesome (although I didn’t like Izumi, and her huge ass boobs) and the plot was pretty cool (I thought). But I’ve said before, I like characters that have a bit of an odd side, especially if these characters are female, and Misaki definitely is a bit weird….just look at the OP, around the 40 second mark. What the fuck was that about? She looked like she was about to get f-
Anyway, Misaki is only seen in her school swimsuit or her PE clothes for the most part, and that’s weird.Oh, and have I mentioned? Lesbianistic qualities (though maybe not full blown lesbian, yet). She often has…..provacative thoughts about Izumi, who she wants to she wants to play rock, paper, scissors with, but without the rock or the paper (get it?). Rie Kugimiya, we haven’t seen the last of you on this list, that you can be sure of.
Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 – Allelujah/Hallelujah Haptism
This picture was actually from Eye Sedso, that’s why it’s shitty quality. So why is Allelujah so great? Well, he’s got a split personality disorder, and that pretty much shoots any character right to the top of my list.
I’ve already shown that a character doesn’t have to be a main character to make this list (Taxi Driver in CANAAN?), and Allelujah never really got enough air time, I felt…..or I should say, Allelujah never got enough time to show off how awesom his split personality was. I mean, when Hallelujah took over, he became a killing machine. He became bad ass. He became….my favorite character from this show, which actually had a good amount of good characters, except for that princess….what a worthless piece of shit she was
I also found it funny how Allelujah’s GF had a split personality, but I guess they both came from that lab or whatever. Maybe that had something to do with it, or maybe birds of a feather flock tog-
Let’s do the next one, because it’s going to be intresting.
K-On – Sawako Yamanaka
Somebody made the picture, and it wasn’t me. I don’t know who made it, I found it on Google. Anyway, here’s another crappy show where almost every character was a piece of poop decorated with a shell of moe (but poop was inside).
I talked before about how split personalities were awesome (common knowledge really), well, here’s a case where it worked for a while, and then failed miserably afterward. We were really introduced to Sawako in episode 5 of this season (coincidentally, the only episode that was good). At first glance, it appeared as though she were some sweet teacher figure, but then, once she heard the guitar, she turned into a psychopath. It was awesome. “Finally,” I thought, “a character that makes K-On not as gay.” Well I was wrong, because that awesome split personality between crazy, rock obsessed Sawako and cute, fun-loving teacher Sawako became fused from the next episode on. Now, Sawako was a teacher who was obsessed, not with the awesomeness of rock and metal, but instead with dressing up the girls in costumes……every…..single……episode. This is the stupidest show ever. I should have made it number one on the shitty shows list.
Sawako wins simply because she single handidly made an episode of K-On good, which is no easy feat. Ritsu was second. Mio and Yui can go die.
Kuragahime – Tsukimi Kurashita
This one was tough because Kuragahime is a show that is literally PACKED with awesome characters. I loved all of them, from the cross dressing male protagonist to the driver who’s life revolves around Mercedes Benz’s. In the end I went with Tsukimi, just because….I don’t know…..she’s really really really obsessed with jellyfish, and she’s pretty fun to watch. I must say though, this could change at any time.
Kurokami – Steiner
For some reason, I feel like I’m one of the few people who actually thought Kurokami was fucking awesome. The fight scenes rocked, the story was okay, the animation was fair……okay I only watched this for the fighting, and when it comes to fighting, all foes need to do one thing, and that’s GET THE FUCK OUTTA THE WAY, BECAUSE HERE COMES STEINER.
Just say the name….STEINER. That’s a powerful name, and unlike Kuro’s gay Exceed, which is just a normal punch (lame), STEINER (yea, I’m always going to capitalize his full name) has a sick ass exceed, and is ultimately more bad ass than anyone else. It’s called Stampede, where he splits into a bunch of clones and pretty much beats the shit out of anyone. He’s UN-FUCKING-BEATABLE……until he dies halfway through the anime, by making the ultimate sacrifice (that he really didn’t even half to make).
Kyou no Go no Ni – Ryota Sato
You know, I had almost forgotten what made Kyou no Go no Ni so good, then I remembered: the funny situations tha sometimes came up, and most of all, the AWESOME, SERIOUS EXPRESSIONS that the characters would suddenly have. It’s like one minute they’re little kids, and the next, high school battle warriors (or something that doesn’t sound as gay as “high school battle warriors”….God wtf was that?).
Ryota was I guess the person I’d consider the best, because he’s pretty much…….uhh…he’s sometimes lazy, and he likes to fuck around….in short, he’s an average boy at that age. Honestly, almost all of these characters are simlilar.
Love Hina – Motoko Aoyama
Okay, so here we have the classic awesome “girl-dressed-like-a-miko-who-has-a-sword-and-talks-big-but-is-actually-still-a-girl-in-the-end” character. Motoko is awesome and I’m just going to list some reasons:
- She’s got a sword, and anytime a girl has a sword in an anime it sets that character up to be awesome right away.
- She’s dressed like a miko. Cmon, that’s great.
- Even though she gets angry a lot, she get embarassed a lot (which is like all girls….well…..all girls according to anime at least (IRL girls are more….normal))
- She’s afraid of turtles.
That’s right, a samurai girl afraid of turtles. I love weird random traits that charcters have. Afraid of turtles? RANDOM = AWESOME. END.
Love Love? – Hikaru Jougasaki
At one point, I actually dropped this show. Then I picked it up, finished it and liked it. Apparently it’s a sequal to Smash Hit. I haven’t seen Smash Hit, but I could follow this fine. I actually was watching Smash Hit at one point, but then I dropped it (just like Love Love?). I’ll pick it up later, finish it, and like it.
As far as characters are concerned, Hikaru wins for the simple fact that she is a tomboy. I love the tomboy characters, they’re awesome. In case you’re wondering, Hikaru was raised by 6 brothers.
Lucky Star – Konata Izumi
While looking for a good picture of Konata (of which there are a SHITLOAD), I found a few that were different, and so here they are. What’s so special about those? Nothing, one was a DMC parody, and the other two were just different artists. That’s it. So why is Konata the winner here? Well, I did write a whole post about it before, but I’ll write some stuff anyway.
Lucky Star, if you’re wondering, had a pointless plot, but I still find it to be one of my favorite shows (top 30).
Why? Isn’t it the same thing as K-On?
No. K-On was an attempt at a show with no substance other than to try to make the characters more moe than the pervious episode. It actually wasn’t even a real show. Lucky Star at least dealt with different things from episode to episode, and it had this guy singing some endings. Holy Fuck, maybe that guy should be my favorite character?
. . . . . .
Nah, I’ll stick with Konata, because she’s funny with her repetitive otaku jokes. Whenever she talks, you know she’s going to talk about gaming or manga or something, for example, the whole “I’m reading” scenario that Baka-Raptor, an avid Lucky Star…..err…..non-liker, talked about. These kind of jokes, for whatever reason, amuse me. That, coupled with the parodies of other shit, make me like Konata and Lucky Star. That’s it.
Magipoka – Liru
Liru is awesome. She’s got energy, charisma, and she’s a werewolf, which can only mean one thing: She likes meat. I like meat. Meat is awesome. There’s nothing better than a good steak. Liru pretty much made this series good (yes, I thought it was pretty good). She’s a much better character than that shitty robot girl, Aika. Aika sucked.
Mahou Sensei Negima! – Setsuna Sakurazaki
This one was kind of difficult…not because of the characters, but because I’m not really sure if I should include “Negima!?” the second series/retelling thingy or not. I mean, it has all of the characters, but it is a completely different show. In the end, I decided that I do in fact have a different favorite character for Negima!? then I do for Mahou Sensei Negima! (On a side note, I heard they were making a new season? If that’s true, that’s awesome!)
So what makes Setsuna so God damn great? Well there are actually several things. First and foremost, she carries with her a completely awesome samurai sword (of course, all samurai swords are awesome, I know, I have one). Girls who wield samurai swords (whether it be in a manga, anime, real life, novel etc.) are all fucking really cool (so are guys that wield them…I know, because I ha-
We get it. Enough.
Errr, right. So besides the sword what else makes her better than say, Asuna? Well, at this point I’d like to direct you to the awesome picture that I provided for you. See it? Are you looking? Obviously not, if you’re reading th-
Stop with that shit.
…why do you keep interrupting me? This is my post, not yours. If you were writing it then I sure as hell wouln’t interru-
Oh, if it were MY post? When the fuck am I going to be able to write a post? I’m just a voice of disagreement in your posts, I say things to disagree with you. That’s my job. That’s my purpose, so to write a post would completely defeat that purpose. How th-
How about this, if you stop interrupting me, I’ll let you write a post? Okay?
…fine. It’s a deal, and I’ll hold you to it.
Okay, so as I was saying, are you looking at the picture? Notice the hair. Is that not the most awesome hair you’ve ever seen in your days? If I ever saw a girl who was Japanese, and she had hair like that, I would date her. The end.
However, there is one more reason to her greatness, and that can be summed up in on word, a word that begins with “Y” and ends with “I”. I am, of course referring to the word, youcandefinitelytellthatSetsunahasfeelingsforKonokaandthatmeansthatshehasshadesofyuri. It’s a pretty long word, but it does well to add to her greatness……Time to start the manga methinks, because after I wrote this, I took a look at her bio and realized that she’s way more awesome then she was in the anime.
Mai HiME -Miyu “M.I.Y.U” Glear
First of all, what a fucking great anime, even if the end was kind of corny and stupid (everyone suddenly comes back alive? Gay. I can’t remember how the manga ended, but I know that the manga was fuckin awesome too.). So the obvious choice for the anime is Miyu, the android babe who is, like the show, fuckin awesome.
So wait, let me backtrack for a bit. What was the best part of Mai HiME? Obviously, it was the sick fighting, and even sicker use of technology, and that especially includes the animation of such technology being used. And of these technologies being used, Miyu’s was certainly the most awesome, most unique, and looked the coolest. Don’t believe me? Just look.
So I think we’ve established that Miyu certainly kicked ass, and besides that, her personality is one of all business. That’s it. That’s why she wins. To be fair, I liked pretty much all of the characters in this show.
Mai Otome – Arika Yumemiya
I actually agonized over who to choose. Mai Otome kicked ass because, unlike Mai HiME, it didn’t focus on stupid love as the main source for their powers, and instead focused on actual technology (nano bots). This made the show awesome, and so did the fact that the characters were all from Mai HiME, except that they were playing different roles. This was fucking awesome. The characters had the same names, same seiyu, and same appearance, but everything about them was semi-different (there’s a sentence that contradicts itself). There were a few settings that were exactly the same (like the bar) and that made it even better.
As far as character goes, I have no idea if I made the right choice….I could have just chosen Miyu again, but she didn’t do that much (she was still awesome). I was going to choose Mai or Mikoto (because I think Mai did a fucking sick move in one episode, and Mikoto is pretty much a cat, and cats are cool), but in the end I went with Arika, because she gets so nasty at the end that I pooped. Not literally, I pooped emotionally. It was sick. Props to Arika for not sucking. (should I have chosen Nina? FUCK).
NOTE: I am still not entirely sure about this pick.
MajinTantei Nougami Neuro – Neuro Nougami
Umm….hello? He eats riddles/puzzles/mysteries as food. Yeah. Do I have to say anything else? The only one who can figure out that riddle is Neuro Nougami.
Maria†Holic – Matsura Shinouji
She barely talks, but when she does say something, it’s usually to make fun of Kanako. Not only that, but she has no emotion, and always has on the same blank stare (I love blank stare characters)…..what character could possibly be better? No one. This is the second most awesome maid ever (Maria is obviously first).
As for the show, it was stale at times, but overall, I enjoyed it. I was going to use this picture, just because, but then I elected not to (it didn’t look good when shrunk….too grainy).
Miname-ke – Chiaki Minami
Her sarcastic, and sometimes cruel, personality is just to fucking great to ignore. She actually EASILY takes this one, despite the show having a pretty solid set of characters that all work good together. Not only that, but she sort of has that dull listless look in her eyes. as in, her expression rarely changes (except when it changes to an awesome expression, just like in Kyou no Go no Ni (same people made that)).
Megane no Kanojo – The Girl With Glasses
Honestly, I loved this short OVA, but each character only has one short episode to make an impression. I can’t remember the name, but the main girl from the first OVA episode was my favorite.
Mnemosyne – Rin Asogi
The part of Mimi (Rin’s lesbian counterpart) was played by Rie Kugimiya. But she’s not my favorite character in this anime (despite still being awesome). That’s just proving that I’m not completely bias toward Rie Kugimiya (the best seiyu ever). No, no, no, the best character in this show is Rin Asogi, and the reason for that is because she kicks some serious ass, and is pretty much really cool. I mean, how many times did she die in this anime? (She went through a jet engine, a jet engine that was on and functioning (in the sky), and survived…..that’s just…)
If you don’t believe me, then watch the first episode, and see Rin kill some dudes with something that resembles a yo-yo. It was fuckin sick. One thing I liked about this show was that the characters were all like, really really really old (like 1000s of years), even though they didn’t look like it, and likewise, the anime moves many years into the future as it moves from episode to episode. One thing I didn’t like was the end. It was a bit weird (I can’t remember it that well, which is pretty bad considering that this show was only 6 episodes (45 minutes episodes though). I still think that Mnemosyne was great.
Monster -Heinrich Runge
Okay, as I am typing this, I still haven’t picked a favorite person. Right now there is no picture and no name. The way I see it, there are three people that all are worthy of the top spot, Johan, Tenma, and Runge. Johan is your typical serial killer who has no emotional attachment to pretty much anything, and is a literal genius. Tenma is the neurosurgeon that saved Johan’s life when he was shot in the head, and is now hunting down Johan, feeling that it’s his fault Johan was given a chance to kill everyone. Runge is the detective hunting Tenma down, because he believes that Tenma was the one behind Johan’s murders (Johan is a genius, he doesn’t get caught ever…or does he?). Johan came up with a couple real BAM moments, Tenma was the fucking man (rebel on a mission here), and Runge, well fuck, I just like the guy, and I’m going to tell you exactly why Runge was the man, because it turns out that he is my favorite character.
At the start of the series, Runge seems like your average run-of the mill genious detective. But as the series progresses, we find out a whole lot of awesome stuff about him:
- At this point in his life, he’s pretty much said fuck you to his family, deciding that work is more important. His family leaves him and he doesn’t really care. He’s hell bent on getting Tenma.
- He fucking remembers everything. He’s pretty much a super detective, and while we’re on this subject.
- The way he remembers things is AWESOME. He types with his fingers (just like by his side in the air), as he thinks them, and then he never forgets (like an elephant). This small habit is what pushed him over the top for being my favorite character. I love weird quirks that characters have.
- He becomes a gun toting mother fucker at the end, and grows into being a bad ass detective (well maybe not bad ass, but fucking awesome).
Runge is awesome. (although I have to give props to Johan for his final plan at the end. I won’t say what it was, but you should know, because you obviously should have watched this show already.
Moyashimon – Haruka Hasegawa
Well, fuck….have you seen her drunk? Or what she wears? Game over dude.
Murder Princess – Falis
Here’s a show that was shitty. Choosing the character was easy though, because bounty hunters are always fucking awesome. (OBVIOUS REFERENCE). Given that bounty hunters are fucking radical (that’s right, RADICAL) how can anybody but Falis (that name is really funny phallus? lol). So anyway, Falis, a bounty hunter with a SAMURAI SWORD, ends ups somehow switching bodies with the princess, which makes for complications and princesses “murdering”. I don’t think I saw a drop of blood in this anime. It was very misleading. but bounty hunter with a samurai sword? Can’t not have her be the best (especially since all of the other characters were really fucking gay).
Naruto – Shikamaru Nara
I find myself only now semi-agreeing with…whoever it was I sort of half disagreed with (I can’t find it, but they had him in their top ten characters….crap I thought I was subscribed too). But yea, Shikamaru is pretty awesome, for these main facts:
- He really doesn’t give a shit.
- He’d rather sleep.
- He’s still a fucking nasty tactician.
He’s not really the greatest fighter of the cast (I mean, if it’s cloudy, he’s kind of fucked). But damn it, he used his skills (as well as other people’s skills) to the best of their ability. Why else do you think he’s so much farther than everyone else, class wise? It’s because he’s a genius. But at the end of the day, to him, everything is just “troublesome”.
I actually liked Naruto, but then I did a stupid thing and watched all of the filler episodes…….Naruto sucks.
EDIT: It was YUMEKA! (smacks himself in the face)
Natsu no Arashi – Sayaka
I was close, my friends. Very close, to choosing Salt Guy, because he gave us (or me at least) a running joke that will never get old. I love running jokes. But then I remembered, Sayaka is the shit.
Whenever I hear or read, “Natsu no Arashi”, the upward picture immediately pops into my head. That’s such a sick pose. So we already know that Sayako is good at poses, but what else? Well, she’s a con artist. Con artists are awesome. They’re almost as cool as bounty hunters! Now, when I hear the term, “Con artist” I immediately think of Sawyer from LOST. Sawyer kicks ass.
The only drawback from Sayako is that she really doesn’t understand Time Travel. Whenever something goes bad (like milk) she tells them to go back in time and return it, or drink it. It’s still going to be spoiled even if you bring it back in time……I mean a person doesn’t age when they go back in time, so there. I guess in the end I just like how her character is a bit rough around the edges.
Negima!? – Motsu
Personally, I think that this is the only logical choice. Well, okay pretty much every character kicked ass in this anime. So funny, so great, so awesome. Who directed it again (BAM). So yea, Motsu wins simply because he gave us the quote, “in a good way”, in a good way. I mean, no matter what the subject matter of the sentence is, he seems to end with, “in a good way” every time. I wish everyone saw this so I could actually use the quote, “in a good way” more often. It’s just not funny if no one gets the reference.
Besides the quote, Motsu somehow gets sucked into becoming Sasaki’s father, which is hilarious in itself. The anime was actually awesome.
Neon Genesis Evangelion – Misato Katsuragi
Most people tend to go for either Rei or Asura. While both are indeed quite awesome, it is in my opinion that Misato is the best character of this entire show. Her mere presence in scenes makes the show better, and I found myself more interested in her story than Shinji the emo’s story.
Misato is great, and don’t just take my word for it, Shinji’s entire class seemed obsessed with her beauty awesomeness. One kid even video’s her. And as you can tell, she enjoys her beer, and also lives with a genetically altered penguin, which is pretty fuckin cool.
Misato, besides the traits already discussed, Is great at her job. I mean, she’s pretty much the most important person at NERV:
- She brought in Shinji and others.
- She is in charge of battle operations (or something).
- It is her job to rule and kick ass.
I also like her backstory, about how she was in the first, Angel incident, and was in fact the only survivor. Everything is cool
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu – Hazuki Sakurazaka
Haruka might have had what it takes to be a good wife of mine had she been a living, actual human, but that doesn’t mean she’s my favorite character in this anime. Hazuki kicks a serious amount of ass in this show, and if you don’t believe me then you’re a big stupid head.
One of the main reasons why I prefer Hazuki could be because I feel like Kaori Shimizu (Lain, Serial Experiments Lain) does a fantastic job voicing her. She gives her that dull, emotionless, deep voice, and as you must surly know by now, the emotionless characters are of my favorite genre.
But what’s better than an emotionless character? How about an emotionless character with emotion? Is that even possible? Yes. As it turns out Hazuki loves stuffed animals, and her entire personality seems to change when she’s around them. This is just awesome. She has also been known to wield a chainsaw.
Nyan Koi! – Kotone Kirishima
Excuse me, yes. Stalker type = My type. In fact, these twins are probably my two favorite characters (although I like almost all of the characters from this show). I love the fact that Kotone is a stalker, and also that she sort of feeds off misfortune. If she was my wife/girlfriend, I could make her very happy, due yo my life which is filled with misfortune. Kotone kicks assss.
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi – Otohime Ryugu
I must have some kind of fetish for girls who are controlling. A woman’s jealousy is deeper than the sea.
Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai – The Mom
Clearly, the best character from Ore no Imouto was the mom. Once she made fun of her son for porn, it was a no-contest. Her sarcasm was just beautiful. I only wish she was able to get more screentime. I mean, she was barely used! So much potential wasted! Instead we had to listen to Kiriririririiririririrn bitch about EVERYTHING. Gah!
Pandora Hearts – Alice
I literally just finished this today, Nov, 23, so I had to go back into my draft and add this. It was honestly one of the easiest decisions I’ve had yet. The only person who cam anywhere close was Echo, who was awesome, but not nearly as awesome as Alice was. I might even go as far as to say that Alice is one of the coolest female characters ever (most characters I’ve chose have been predominantly female for some reason…..probably because most male characters are never actually the main character (even in a Harem, they aren’t so much a main character as they are a reason for the girls to act like they do), and are all pretty much the same.
Alice kicks complete ass for several awesome reasons:
- She loves meat. Like, almost as much as me. In fact, I watched an episode today, and immediately went and grilled 6 steaks (not lying). Being meat, they were all really good.
- She likes to beat people’s asses. This is awesome.
- From the second you first meet her, you can tell that she knows she’s the shit. She has that whole aura about her that immediatly makes you think, “This bitch is BA and she knows it.”
- She’s a half tsundere.
That’s right, a half tsundere. Most people would argue that she’s a full tsundere, but in one episode, when Sharon tells her about romance, she remarks “What is this romance? Is it tasty?” She doesn’t really bottle her feelings of love for the emo stricken, stupid OZ, she simply doesn’t know whaat those feelings are……..ugh, okay that is exactly what a tsundere is pretty much……I can’t explain it, but as of now, she is a half tsundere. Anyone know if there’s going to be another season? Because there wasn’t any conclusion at all, and that leads me to believe that there will be one….I don’t know how I fell about the series, I’ll probably write a review sometime, and just talk more in depth about Alice, who is fucking great.
Pani Poni Dash! – Ichijou
Smart Idea: watching Pani Poni Dash!
Not Such A Smart Idea: Watching Pani Poni Dash right in the beginning of one’s anime watching career (not that it’s actually a career….that would be nice).
Pani Poni Dash deals heavily with parody, such as anime, and to tell the truth, I didn’t get many of the parodies. Did this mean that I disliked the anime? Fuck no, I thought it was great. But I want to go back and rewatch it one of these days.
Himeko grabs the top spot for this anime because she’s….well….eccentric. She’s crazy, odd, and….well she’s a lot like Tomo from Azumanga Daioh. She’s just full of energy (like me most of the time). I wish I had a picture with her ahoge, which is her defining feature (its a thing of hair that sticks up). I like the ahoge because it pretty much has a life of its own. I can move and….stuff….uh…..I lost myself….I remember one episode where they pulled it off, and she suddenly had no energy. That’s a weird trait if you ask me! I love weird traits.
Himeko wins (I hope I didn’t misremember anything here.)
Apparently, I did misremember something here. I misremembered Ichijou (meaning, completely forgot). She was awesome. I can’t believe how dumb I am for forgetting her. Luckily, I went back to rewatch this show, and got sucker punched in the stomach by the sheer awesomeness in the form of oddness that is Ichijou. She is a God damn mystery, eh? And she also has those cool eyes. But she can do all sorts of stuff that normal people just can’t seem to do (because they’re impossible). In one part of the episode I was watching (7?) they were swimming, and she was leading warmups. She said to them, “Breath in, breath out.” That sounds pretty normal, until she followed it up with, “Now preform a dazzling triple somersault.” Awesome. She’s awesome.
Panty And Stocking With Garterbelt – Stocking
First of all, the ending surprised the fucking shit out of me, but in no way did it effect my decision to have Stocking as number one, mainly simply for the fact that I like her goth/emo attire and I love the color purple. There really weren’t that many characters here to choose from, but that’s not to take away from anything. This show was awesome.
PS: Check out that picture. I have no idea how I found that, but fuck it’s awesome. We need more shows with zombies and stuff. Personally, I think stitches look really awesome.
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom – Cal Devens
I previously stated that she was my favorite character, and this is mainly because I found the characters to be kind of flat in this anime, but she was not. She was awesome. First and foremost, she defies the laws of time, as she transforms from a small, 12 year old, flat chested loli, into a tall, busty blonde, who kills people and looks like a 24 year old. Personally, I don’t like the small child form much, because she lived me dream of having a stack of wrapped burgers in front of her, and that cause jealousy. No, I like the older, killing machine Cal, because she’s almost bad ass.
Older Cal rides a motorcycle. She rides it, into a Chinese restaurant and kills everyone in there, even people on her side. Point one for older Cal.
Younger Cal cries and whines. Point down for Younger Cal.
Older Cal takes out her pocket watch, lets it play, and when the song finishes, she and whoever she’s trying to kill have a duel. She always wins (……).
Younger Cal was eager to become an assassin, and was a natural with a gun right off the bat, and even did a bad ass impression of Robert Di Nero from Taxi Driver. Okay, give a point to Younger Cal.
Older Cal is hellbent on misguided revenge. Definitely a point there.
Younger Cal is hellbent on misguided revenge, but wants Reiji to do it for her. What a pussy. Minus a point
Final Tally = OC: 3 YC: 1
Okay, so what does that mean? Nothing. That tally actually has no effect on anything, other than stating that I like older Cal more. They’re still the same character though, which means I obviously like how Cal grew up from an innocent girl into a cold blooded killer. What’s better than that? A lot of things, but it’s still an awesome concept. One thing with the watch….I’m almost positive that that’s from a Clint Eastwood movie. (I said this last time, yet got no answer….I really want to know).
EDIT: It was For A Few Dollars More (my favorite of that trilogy).
I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I actually did waste my time and I actually did actually watch this show. Why? Because it had Rie Kugimiya in it, and I will watch literally anything she’s in (why do you think I’m wasting time struggling through the shit pile that is Kanememo?) What did I think about it? It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought. I ended up giving it a mid range 4 (which isn’t good, but isn’t bad). Who was my favorite character? Well there are two options:
Option #1: Guchuko
Guchuko is a scythe wielding…..uh….furby? Let me explain that. Potemayo and Guchuko are both these weird creatures that came out of the main character’s fridge, and have no purpose except to me moe. In fact, the only reason I’m considering Guchuko for the top spot is because she is the only character that carries a weapon, and she cuts shit up. Not only that, but she also doesn’t like people, nor does she interact with them. In fact, she just shoots energy blasts at them from her worms or whatever she has on the side of her head. This makes her 12 times more bad ass then the next closest character to being bad ass in the show, and that character would probably be my other option. Other then that, she’s pretty much the tsundere form of Potemayo. This show would have sucked if not for the semi-decent comedy, which was pleasantly semi decent, and sometimes sexually humorous.
Option #2: Nene Kasugan
Guess who voices this character? Duhhh. Rie Kugimiya. And she has such an unusually high pitch for it two, but the character of Nene (who has the same name as the best fuckin Center ever) constantly changes her voice to do impressions, which are always perfect. She also kicks the shit out of her brothers, and even her mother, both mentally and physically. Hmm….who should I choose (If you looked at the picture, then you already know who I choose, but I’m not there yet).
Okay, Ichose Guchuko, because she just seems to hate people (except what’s her name, the girl who found Guchuko). This show probably had one of the stupidest plots ever made. At least it was moderately funny.
Puni Puni Poemi – Nabeshin
No, this isn’t some sort of typo, but who would have though that a character would appear TWICE on this list? Granted, this was a two episode OVA, but I think that it was the funniest two episode anything ever. Most people think it annoying, but I was laughing my balls off (they literally fell off. Luckily, I can re-grow my balls). The amount of 4th wall breakage, random ass shit, sexual humor, and more random ass shit, was just ultimately amusing for me. And Nabeshin was awesome, even though he wasn’t in much.
Queen’s Blade – Allean
Queen’s Blade is great. It has boobs. I’m not a fan of fanservice anime much. But hey, boobs are great. Allean kicks ass (as I’ve said and taken back many times). Allean:
- Looks the best. I mean, with clothes, without…..it doesn’t matter, she’s aesthetically pleasing.
- Her personality, frankly, I think she’s fed up with her stupid loli sidekick, but realizes that she’s kind of stuck with her (this might be nothing more than a hopeful assumption by me). But her personality is so serious, that it makes her stand out amongst the other characters, who are all ridiculous in some way. She has one facial expression, and that’s determination.
- Just fucking look at her.
I think I made my point.
Rizelmine – Tomonori Iwaki
Tomo is the epitome of someone who is not a pedophile. He’s actually the man. In this series, Tomo is someone who only likes older women, specifically, his teacher, who is a hot babe. He even puts the moves on her, and in my opinion, could have had a serious chance at copping some sensei ass if he kept going.
Subsequently, he hates lolis. Take note of Rizel in the picture above. He usually gets annoyed with the simple fact that she even likes him, and routinely punts Rizel, abuses her, and treats her like general shit. That is, until, he sees what adult Rizel looks like. When this happens, he notices boobs, and stupidly loses sight of his babe teacher. Overall I actually liked this anime a fair amount. I thought it was hilarious, and enjoyed it’s repetitive humor (which I sometimes like, and sometimes dislike, in this case, it mainly involved punting lolis, so I found it acceptable). Rizelmine was awesome. And yes, Rie Kugimiya played the voice of Rizel perfectly.
Rosario + Vampire/Capu2 – Mizore Shirayuki
Speaking of Rie Kugimiya, here’s a somewhat surprising character for her to voice (in a good way). She may be smiling in the picture, but don’t let it fool you, she doesn’t smile much. This is a good thing, because her character type is that of a shy girl, who has a crush on the main character. Oh, and she’s a stalker. She is an awesome stalker. She takes her stalking seriously, and is very good at it. In fact, I’m hoping that she ends up turning into a real life person somehow, and starts stalking me. I would let her stalk me for ages (a week) until I gave in and let her become my slave for like. Let me list off some things that make her awesome (or else I’ll start to ramble).
- She is a stalker.
- She has high, horizontal striped socks (or thigh highs or whatever they’re called idk), and they’re PURPLE (best color ever since colors were brought into this world by
- She has awesome Ice Powers that look really fucking awesome when used as claws.
- She has an odd strap attached to her leg that as far as I can tell serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever.
- She enjoys lolipoops…….I mean lolipops.
- Rie Kugimiya.
- Will fuck you up.
- She doesn’t talk much (typical stalker fashion) and knows for a fact that she will marry Tsukune.
That’s about it. The runner up (which I have to mention) can be none other than Normal Moka (with the rosary not attached) because she’s a true ass kicker who does give a shit. But I will generally always choose a stalker figure (I messed that up in Gantz when I chose the wrong person).
Rozen Maiden (all seasons) – Suigintou
Well it obviously wasn’t going to be Jun (he plays with fuckin dolls), so who could I choose? Well duh, obviously the most badass doll there is, Suigintou. Rie Tanaka (who is AWESOME) voices her (isn’t it weird that my two favorite seiyu are both “Rie”?) and does a good job as usual…
Now the thing about Suigintou is that she is considered at first to be the “bad guy” in that she wants to win the Alice Contest (I think that’s what it’s called…it’s been a while since I watched this). and will do so at any cost. She’ll use any tactics it takes, even if that means using some….err…harsh tactics to get ahead (she’ll kill you). Besides that, her character design is fuckin great and she also hates Shinku, and since I think that Shinku is a stuck up bitch, I can relate.
Rurouni Kenshin – Himura Kenshin
The main reason why Kenshin wins quite easily for me (besides the fact that he kicks ass), is his dark past, where he killed people like it was his job (cuz it was). In the English dub, he is called The Man Slayer. What sounds more badass than manslaughter? Nothing. That’s a bad ass name. However, Kenshin wants to make up for his dark past. Of course, even with accepting his new life at the dojo, he still has to beat ass on many occasions, and does so swiftly and with bad assary.
Saki – Momoko Toyoko
Momo is awesome, and here’s why:
As a young one, she was that girl who, while she was never a loser, never really stood out, ie, she was simply invivsible. She broke off all attempts to even communicate with anyone, and this translates to her mahong game. She has the ability to make her moves and tiles invisible. Likewise, she’ll declare richii and no one will even know. More importantly (at least according to the subs) she pluralizes random words. For examples, she might say something like:
“I believes you!”
There is no need to pluralize “believes”, but she does it. What a rebel! Momo kicks ass. Also, she’s a complete lesbian (wait….who ISN’T one in this show? Oh yea, Yuki…and Jun Fukuyama’s character, who is obviously a male.)
Samurai 7 -Shimada Kambei
*This show was dropped at 23
In the actual live action/originally film done by Akira Kurosawa (which was absolutely brilliant), my favorite character was quite easily Kikuchiyo, but they turned him into a fucking stupid Robot in this one, which not only made me angry, but mad, flustered, perturbed, and angry as well (not to mention angry). Of course, the characters weren’t all that bad in this anime, but the immensely slow pacing and lack of any type of action/points of intrigue were a problem, and the main reason why I dropped the show (the whole robot adaptation thing also pissed me off a bit, and seemed kind of corny and stupid to me).
I’ll go ahead and say that Kambei is my favorite character, just because he looks like the man, and acts like the man, and thus, is the man. He’s also a nasty fighter.
Samurai Champloo – Mugen
Well let’s see, considering that Mugen is my header, I’d say that most people could tell beforehand who I was going to choose here. Mugen is the man. Mugen kicks ass. Mugen is voiced by Kazuya Nakai.
Wait: Mugen is fucking awesome, and one of the best characters ever, which can also be said for the series.
The End for real.
Sasameki Koto – Kiyori Torioi
It has become hard to update this page. I can’t even view it in full format anymore. But Kiyori is the best, for these facts:
- She is always eating
- She is always happy for no reason (maybe because she’s eating)
- Nothing bothers her.
In one scene, which is my favorite scene from this anime, she is confronted by Tomoe, a lesbian who wants to start a “Girls Club”. Tomoe asks her in a dramatic way if she would want to join their club. While eating a bean thing, she smiles, and says, “Nope.” and then walks away laughing. I actually rewatched this scene several times.
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (all seasons) -Matoi Tsunetsuki
Before I even begin this, I will say that the cast of SZS is the best that I have seen ever, besides Hayate and maybe FMA. I honestly could put almost any character in a top spot for almost any other show. but among the many awesome characters, My favorite would have to be Matoi Tsunetsuki, because, quite obviously, she’s a stalker, and stalkers rule (in anime). She stalks whoever she falls in love with, and she has fallen in love with Nozomu, and thusly always shows up at points where you least expect, because she’s literally always stalking Nozomu. It’s great. I give her the ASA (Anime Stalker Award) for her great performance at being a stalker.
- Chiri Kitsu – Crazy Bitch.
- Abiru Kobushi – Bandage Girl who steals tails from animals.
- Kiri Komori – Hikikomori girl, except instead of staying at home, she stays at school, wrapped in a blanket.
Never mind Notables. I would have to name every single character. God I love this show.
School Days – Kotonoha Katsura
Meet Kotonoha, a quiet girl for the most part. She is generally shy around people, and it takes a LOT for her to actually confess to the main character, Makoto. Eventually the two date, and couldn’t be happier. Then a few small things happen, and when it’s all said and done, she is carrying around Makoto’s head in a dufflebag, and even killed her rival for Makoto’s affections. What a dynamic character.
Sengoku Basara – Nobunaga Oda
I really, REALLY, shouldn’t have to explain this one, but I will anyway:
- Voiced by Norio Wakamoto.
- Drinks for a fucking SKULL.
- Kills EVERYTHING.
- Doesn’t give a SHIT (about killing whoever, whenever).
- Just fucking awesome.
Serial Experiments: Lain – Lain
In this, completely awesome show, which is one of the coolest shows I’ve seen, Lain is probably one of the most dynamic characters that I’ve seen. At the start of the series, Lain is nothing more than a shy 14-year-old girl, living a seemingly normal life, until she’s introduced to The Wired (kind of like the internet). From here, she…….well….I don’t want to ruin it in case no one’s seen this show (go watch it now), but Lain changes in several ways. personally, I loved this anime’s complexity and how it dealt with the definition of reality, along with the definition of one’s self (did I even get that right?).
I kinda want to re watch this now.
Seitokai Yakuindomo – Ranko Hata
DEAD PAN. Eye’s are usually anime-mated (anime iconography). This one was kind of tough because all of the characters were kind of the same. In the end I liked what Hata’s seiyuu, Satomi Arai did with the part. I also liked the sensei, and her seiyuu, but hey, she can’t drink coffee in under 10 seconds.
Shakugan no Shana – Shana
Well, not a big surprise here. Shana, besides being one of Rie Kugimiya’s most well-known characters, is actually one of the best tsundere characters…..ever. I’m sure by now most people know that I really really really really like Shakugan no Shana, and all of its characters are great, but Shana? Pffffffff. Fagetaboutttt it. First there’s the character design. Although it’s pretty much the norm for most Rie Kugimiya characters (short, no breasts), Shana is a Flame Haze, and is generally awesome when she decides to get serious. Here hair pretty much turns to fire, and she looks fucking awesome. Then of course there’s her.
As a character, Shana has a lot on her plate. Not only does she slice up the bad guys with an awesome SAMURAI SWORD, but she also deals with adapting to human interaction (or I guess Torch interaction at first). In the beginning, she seemed pretty apathetic when a person died or became a torch, but through interacting with Yuji, she begins to change, and develops feelings of love and friendship (honestly that’s not even a reason why I like her, I just like her because she looks cool, kicks ass, and is played by Rie Kugimiya).
The second season was pretty shitty, and Shana kind of got annoying (as did all of the characters) until they started fighting, where Shana suddenly became fucking awesome again, and whooped ass.
Shaman King – Anna Kyoyama
She is Yoh’s fiancée by arranged marriage, and is pretty much awesome, because she is such a bitch, but at the same time, you can tell that she has genuine feelings for Yoh. She is always the person who has to whip Yoh into shape and force him to get his ass in gear, and she also demands. See the picture above? That’s her general demeanor. She rarely smiles. Oh, and yes, she has powers.
I didn’t have much to say about her, but despite that, she’s actually one of my favorite characters (I’m not going to try and rank her, but out of all the characters on this list, she’d be in the better half of them.
Shikabane Hime – Hokuto
First and foremost, as you can tell, she’s a crazy bitch. Considering that she’s a Shikabane with no regrets, or feelings whatsoever, she treats everything like a kid seeing something for the first time. Except she’s a kid who likes to just kill everything. If you say, “Kill that person,” then she’ll start laughing, and kill that person, and not just kill them, but shred them to pieces. It’s a nice trait to have.
Point number two, look at her eyes. They’re inverted, which is like heterochromia to another level. AWESOME. Not to mention the white hair and the crazy red mark on the left of her face (her left). She’s just one more reason to like Shikabane Hime (which was good).
Simoun – Aer
Aer is the best. Neviril is the worst. That is how it goes with me. In case you didn’t read the picture title, Aer is the one on the left (your left). What makes this whore so special?
Well first of all, she’s a whore. Okay that’s not true, but as far as characters go, she was one character that was upbeat and fun, and helped make this anime become really good. She really went at Neviril (in a lesbian way, although not technically), and that’s something I can respect. not much more to say here, but I do want to touch on he show a little bit.
Simoun was a great show (even though I got a bit confused by the ending). But to say that it’s yuri? Meh. Not really. You see, in their world, all people are born as females, and then later choose to be males, or remain as females. So technically, nothing is really yuri from the stand point of the characters. Any relationships (or most anyway) that form between these girls usually would not be yuri, because one of the girls would more than likely eventually decide to become a man (gotta make babies). Of course, this show still managed to produce a set of lesbian incest girls, but that’ Japan for you.
I understand that that explanation sucked. But I sort of, kind of got out what I was trying to say.
Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo – Honoko Kawai
I’m beginning to think that all shows starting with the letter “S” are instantly awesome. I like almost every single show on this list so far, albeit the first one. Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo is no different. Great show, great cast, great greatness. I almost picked Jun Fukuyama’s character, which was almost like a robot version of Lelouch, albeit funnier (I need to stop saying “albeit”), but in the end, Honoka’s greatness could not be overcome. Reasons:
- She’s got a fucking cool hat.
- Telekinetic powers and glowing red eyes.
- She’s a typical quite girl character.
- She’s just, really, awesome.
Spice and Wolf – Horo
Anyone who’s seen Spice and Wolf knows that Horo makes the show. Her personality is so awesome, that without her, the show would suck. Fortunately, the show includes her, so it is actually really really good. Basically, Horo is a couple things.
Firstly, she loves to tease Lawrence. Sometimes she acts turned on by him, just to get a reaction out of him. Sometimes she asks odd questions, to make him embarrassed. However, despite her teasing, it’s pretty obvious that she has genuine feelings for Lawrence, and here she develops sort of a tsundere attitude (sort of). She’s not full tsundere, but she definitely displays characteristics of one.
Why else is she awesome? Well for one, she loves eating and getting shit faced on regular basis. Does that really make her cool though? Yes. Yes it does.
Strike Witches/II – Mio Sakamoto
Strike Witches, despite being a bunch of lolis without pants, was actually a pretty good show, and I was able to tolerate the blatant fanservice because I kind of enjoyed the plot (zippin around in those boot things looked kinda fun). Anyway, Mio Sakamoto. Look at the picture (stare HARD) and you should find out one reason why I like her.
That’s right, a magical eye that is covered by an eye patch. What can I say, I dig the eye patch. They make any character look cool. Even Watanuki looks cooler when he has an eye patch (in fact, I’d say the episodes got better when he had an eye patch too….God I miss xxxHOLiC).
Besides this, she wields a samurai sword and has an attitude of a winner. She’s a born leader and has the ability to not take shit, or act like moe garbage, or realize that she’s in a fanservice anime, like most of the other girls in this show.
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu – Yuki Nagato
Well, here is a character who for some reason I keep reverting back to when I see other characters like her. She’s a typical quiet character, but she certainly isn’t the first. However, she is probably one of the most popular.
First of all, I would like to say that anyone who thinks that Mikuru is the best character can either suck my dick, jump off a cliff, or punch themselves in the privates until they become numb. Mikuru sucks. She’s just fucking annoying in so many ways. She cries and gets embarrassed all the time. She’s honestly just a pain. Where was she on my top 5 most hated characters post, is what I want to know.
Anyway, back to Yuki. She’s an alien, which is awesome. She’s all business, and rarely talks, which is awesome, and she’s generally awesome, which is awesome. I mean, she had to go through the endless eight around 15 thousand times. We only had to endure it for 9 or so episodes. I might have to consider her a bad ass now (she does do some bad ass stuff).
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann – Simon
That’s right, Kamina wasn’t my favorite character. Sure, he was awesome. But shit, he was only around for 7 episodes. Besides, Simon became a much more interesting character to watch because of his progression from a pussy to a bad ass. In fact, he was an even better bad ass than Kamina was. So shit man, fuck it.
Tenchi Universe – Ryoko
Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki! – Ryoko
Ryoko is most likely my favorite female character in all of anime. Everything from her awesome hair, to her powers, to her laziness, to her seiyuu for both sub and dubbed versions, to the fact that she’s a bad ass space pirate……everything about her is awesome. I honestly wish that they made a spin off series about her only, instead of the other stupid spin off they made about fucking Mihoshi.
Tenjou Tenge – Bunshichi Tawara
This guy kicks so much ass it’s unreal. And not only does he kick ass, but he does it without the use of fancy prancy “chi” bullshit. He’s all man, all muscle, all ass kicking. But is he ranked number one in the school? Yes. He’s awesome (he was ranked #1, but I’m assuming that his rank changed after Mitsuome became some kind of freak of nature/President).
In the scene where the above screen shot was taken especially, Bunshichi kicks ass. In said scene, Bunschichi’s legs were stabbed repeatedly by Shin, which, given the amount of blood loss portrayed, would have killed any normal man. But as we know, this is Tenjou Tenge and not real life, so blood loss doesn’t really matter at all. In fact, I’d go on record and say that if any of these fight ever happened in real life, everyone would be dead. Anyway, his legs are pretty much fucked to the point of….well…..they’re fucked. So what does he do? He uses his fists for punch things like a car, propelling him toward Shin. It probably doesn’t sound as bad ass describing it with words.
To Aru Majutsu no Index – Misaka Misaka
If you remember the post this picture is from, this really shouldn’t come as a surprise, but I love the character of MISAKA, which could be any one of the thousands of clones of Mikoto Misaka. Back then I described how awesome she was by the way she talks in the third person, and also narrates her life. This is awesome. Completely awesome. Compile that with the fact that she’s very emotionless, and you have a real winner of a character.
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 – Yuuki Onozawa
So there’s really not many choices here, and I’m going with Yuuki. Truthfully, he’s nothing special, but I like the fact that, despite being a child, he thinks like a mature person, in that he tries to carry burdens and not slow any other the trio down with his problems (this could also be veiwed as immaturity….I think it might be a little of both). He’s pretty much a class act, and it sucks that…..well I don’t want to spoil anything (even though I kind of just did).
To-LOVE-ru – Yui Kotegawa
This choice might be a surprise to many of you, but let’s face it, Rito is a bitch who doesn’t take advantage of Lala, and Lala is annoying a lot of the time. I realize most people would pick Golden Darkness, and going by my typical choices of character, I should be choosing Golden Darkness too. But I’m not, and this surprises even me.
Every scene with Yui is just somehow better others. I love how she is a strict person, and yet she’s always found in the middle of boob grabbing or something (so is everyone else in this show). I don’t know, I just like her general personality, I can’t really put my finger on it. Maybe I feed off her embarrassment? Who knows.
Toradora! – Taiga Aisaka
Here we have Rie Kugimiya’s best voice acting job ever. Taiga is certainly a tsundere type character, in that she has a mean streak a mile long, but also has a very emotional side, but keeps her emotions bottled up. However to say that she is a typical tsundere character is kind of wrong, becuase she is a bit different.
Unlike a typical tsundere character, who is simply just not honest with their feelings, Taiga actually is honest with her feelings. She knows that she loves Ryuuji. But she chooses to put her own feelings aside, because she wants Minorin (who also likes Ryuuji) to be happy. As a person, she is actually very giving (for Christmas, she buys presents for the unfortunate….how many of you do that?….I don’t). So yes, she won’t hesitate to beat your ass, and yes, she has a flat chest, and yes she has a soft side, and yes, she is short. But unlike characters such as Shana and Louise, she doesn’t really ask “What is wrong with me?” when she experiances love. She does’nt spend a WHOLE FUCKING SECOND SEASON ASKING PEOPLE WHAT LOVE IS. She doesn’t ask, “Why am I feeling like this?” She knows why she feels the way she does, she just doesn’t want to (at first), and this coupled with the awesomeness of Rie Kugimiya, creates an awesome character.
Touch – Shohei Haruda
He is the fuckin MAN. I mean, let’s look at the facts, he seems to already know everything that’s going to happen and that is happening. I mean, he seems to have been put there as a literary device in the form of a huge ass boxer who can kick everyone’s ass. He rules. Do I think he should have gotten more screen time? No. Also, he reminds me of Rocky. And yes, I did copy and paste this from my review of Touch.
Trigun – Vash the Stampede
Vash kicks ass. Just look at the picture. Do you notice any bullets in Vash? No, because you can’t hit him, he’s too nasty. Actualy, he gets wounded a lot, as you can tell from his body’s appearance in episode…….well in one of the episodes anyway. Vash is an ass kicker, and the way he goes about ass kicking is pretty ass kickerific. He doesn’t shoot to kill, but still wins every time (this is also the reason for his numerous scars). It’s hard for me to say exactly what is awesome about Vash. His peronality? His fighting skills? If you really want to know, what Trigun.
Tsukuyomi: MOON PHASE – Elfried
Honestly, there weren’t many characters to choose from, but I liked Elfried most, and I actully only have a vauge idea of why.
- Hazuki was annoying
- Kohei was boring
- The Grandfather was pretty cool, but Elfriede:
- Has awesome appearance.
- Has that demeanor like she secretly runs everything, and has control of everything.
- Has awesome conversations with the grandfather
The reason in bold is the most prominant reason why I chose her. I loved it every time she talked, and her conversations with the grandfather were always amusing. It’s like she suddenly became older once she started banging him (they definitely banged).
Tsuyokiss – Sunao Konoe
This one is pretty simple. First I’ll say that I actually found this show to be very enjoyable. I liked it and it was pretty good the bee’s knees. As for the main character, I just like the fact that all she wants to do is create a drama club, and no one will let her, and she keeps trying and trying and trying. I love the determination. I also love the connection that she comes to realize she shares with Leo. This show kicked ass, and needs more credit now (how old is this show? 2006? 2006 was a great year for anime, there were so many good shows (Shana)).
Ultimate Girls -Vivenne Otori
In case you can’t tell by the picture, this might be the dumbest, yet funniest show ever made. It’s so stupid and, well, ridiculous, that it’s retarded (kind of like that sentence). It’s a complete blatant fanservice anime, but what makes it great, is that it knows it. Therefore, it takes the fanservice, and makes it completely ridiculous, which in turn makes it freaking hilarious. One can understand this just by looking at the general overview of the series.
Ultimate Girls is about a hero called UFO man. He has the ability to grow really big, and defeat giant monsters. However, he steps on the three girls, killing them all. He kind of feels bad, so he ends up reviving the girls, and splitting his powers among three girls, so that they can fight the giant monsters. However, the only way they can gain power is by getting embarrassed, so they’re clothes slowly disintegrate when they grow. Also, the only way to beat the monsters is to pull off what appears to be their dicks (but really isn’t). Also, one of the monsters is the writer for the show. The show is a joke.
Wait, what am I doing? Is this a review? I’m supposed to be talking about my favorite character. Well, I don’t really remember the characters much, but I do recall that Vivenne had a lesbian crush on Silk, so she wins…plus she has huge tits.
Umi Monogatari – Kanon
Honestly, she got progressively worse as the show went on, but so did everyone, and since her evil aura in the beginning was good, she wins. She was the most realistic as well.
Umineko no Naku Koro ni – The Golden Witch Beatrice
You tell me, who the fuck is better than Beatrice? She’s just awesome. She kills and kills and tricks and treats (except she doesn’t treat). She’s also got a nice rack. At some points she changes, at others she does not. Get it? Doubtfully, but this anime was awesome because of her.
Usagi-chan de Cue! – Bill the Ass-Kicker
What the fuck? I forgot I even watched this shitpile. Bill the Ass-Kicker destroyed the anime because it was so stupid, so he wins (Note: he was not actually in the anime).
Venus Verses Virus – Lucia Nahashi
Lucia is awesome in so many ways. In fact, here they are:
- Eye patch covering eye with mysterious yet awesome power.
- Cold attitude, bent on killing viruses.
- Lesbian affections.
Video Girl Ai – Ai
Well, it’s not like there were a lot of characters to choose from…..Ai was clearly the best, and this translates to the manga as well. Personally, I liked her tomboyish nature the most.
Welcome to the N.H.K. – Misaki Nakahara
Warning: Heavy Spoilers
Welcome to the N.H.K. is arguably my favorite anime ever. I wish I could make a graph to show you, but I can’t (because of lazyness), so instead I’ll just say that as more time passes, this show somehow keeps getting better in my mind. It started out at number 10 on my top ten list, then slowly moved up the list, almost under the radar, until it got to number 2. I honestly should put this at number one, but I don’t want to move InuYasha (because of stubborness). That being said, I should have a nice, long character review (like Inuyasha’s character review).
Misaki Nakarhara is a character that at first appears very charitable. She seems to only want to help people, mainly Tatsuhiro. She helps him to become more open with people, and escape from the hikikimori lifestyle. For most of the show, the audience can clearly see that almost all of the characters have pretty heavy issues (mental issues), that even lead them to attempt suicide (once or twice). However, most people would assume that Misaki is the exception, playing the part of the stable person, who keeps everything in perspective, and instills a sense of balance into the show, almost as if she is the character who keeps everything in place (aka, “The Normal One”). However, we soon see that she’s just as fucked up as the rest of them, and she actually depends on Tatsuhiro’s, well, shittiness to make her feel better, because she thinks of herself as a huge piece of shit (like a really big piece). She even tries to kill herself after Tatsuhiro gets work and actually starts to get involved in society.
So why do I like Misaki? Because the life she lives is a lie, and underneith it all, she’s a shit pile just like everyone else.
The World God Only Knows – Kanon Nakagawa
The first was the Idol arc, where Keima must get popular Idol Kanon Nakagawa to fall for him. Instead, I found that I fell for Kanon Nakagawa. Well, not really, but she did turn out to be my favorite character. She had soooo much shit packed into her character that it was unreal. I already mentioned why she was awesome once before, but I’ll list the reasons just to fill some space:
- She was so retarded it was awesome.
- She was part stalker.
- Part OCD.
- Part Airhead.
- Part Psycho.
- Really insecure.
- Could turn invisible*.
- She was still, despite all of this, somehow an Idol.
Working!! – Yachiyo Todoroki
She’s not only a very enthusiastic lesbian, but she carries a fucking sword around with her all day. Isn’t that illegal in Japan? She kicks ass. Not only that, but she’s generally clueless, which makes for a funny character who I can’t help but like.
xxxHOLiC – Zashiki Warashi
She is a sprite, and without question, the best character in this show. As for reasons why I like her? I can’t really say, maybe her pure attitude and general awesomeness. I
Honestly, this makes no sense to me, since I usually hate the whole “shy girl” character. But she’s the best. Certainly better than Himawari.
Zero no Tsukaima – Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallère
Well, I was trying to hold this back, but I’m going to take this opportunity to voice my excitement that the new season of Zero no Tsukaima will be airing in February. I freakin love that show.
As for the pick…….was there really any question? Rie Kugimiya? Classic.
Zombie Loan – Michiru Kita
The last entry. Honestly, this show was meh. It was so-so. It was really nothing special, and that’s too bad because the whole premise was pretty cool. Likewise with the mediocracy of the show, comes mediocracy of the characters. I can say that I don’t really feel anything toward any of them, but if I had to choose, I’d choose Michiru, for no other reason than her powers, which can see a black ring on a person’s neck. The darker the ring, the closer that person is to dying. It’s really just a variation of other abilities (Torch flame from Shakugan no Shana, Shinagami Eyes from Deathnote). It’s cool I guess.

ALICE!(!) And Lain!(!)
We all have Lewis Carroll (one of the greatest authors ever) to thank for inspiring Jun Mochizuki to create a character such as Alice, the Blood-Stained Black Rabbit.
Lain is cool. I’ve only seen the first two episodes, but I like her because she doesn’t seem to be that good at social stuff (and social stuff is bad).
Lain is awesome as sin. I love her, that show, and everything about it. Alice is better than Lain though.
most wonderfull list i’ve ever seen!! *-* good job!
I’ll agree, and like a tumor, it keeps on growing and growing.
Interesting list, but no Alucard (or anyone else from Hellsing for that matter) : (?
Yeah I’ve got to update list BADLY. Hellsing is a tough one cuz everyone’s so fucking badass. Like….EVERYONE.
Man, I like the choices of your characters except there are few I would disagree but great choices nonetheless. Plus, the list introduced me some good shows I’ve quite liked.
Anyways, I’m glad about Suzume being included.
If you read that whole thing then i’m amazed. But yeah, I LOVE Suzume really underrated.
you must one of the very few persons who ever saw Monster.
Supremely underrated show one of the best ever.
No he from darker than black? He’s called the Chinese electric batman, that enough should be able to make him score this list.
Btw your blog, sorry, ISSS is my favourite! Great work and good to see you still have time for a few posts.
If you haven’t already, you should totally read/watch “Genshiken”, a Seinen, Comedy/Slice-Of-Life manga about a Japanese college club the series is titled after, its members and their lifestyles.
What I thought was just going to be another good slice-of-life manga ended up becoming my personal favorite series: sure, it doesn’t have mind-blowing art, but gets the job done quite well; the story isn’t some huge drama, a huge quest to save the world or one with lots of awesome fights (like most of the titles widely accepted as the “best manga”), but had (to me, at least) great emotional moments; the content, as with most slice-of-life series, includes the daily activities of the Genshiken’s members, particularly when it comes to the “Otaku” culture – they talk about their favorite anime and manga, play games, go to Doujinshi events (the “Comic Market”, or Comiket being the main focus in that respect), etc. Finally, the characters (both male ones and female ones) all (except maybe one) have charismatic personalities that one can’t help but like or at least appreciate the existence of.
Personally, if you’ve read/watched Lucky Star, Nichijou and Mysterious Girlfriend X, I think you’ll love this series. Please, READ IT! Thank you.
I’ve heard good things about Genshiken, and I like Lucky Star a lot and LOVED THE FUCK out of Nichijou and Mysterious Girlfriend X. GAHHH. I NEED MORE TIME!
Gosh, I love you, because you are just so fucking fabulous, and bad-ass. And this really helps, because I don’t want to have dumbass characters, a piece of poop inside covered in moe.
You’re not the reason why I’m going to watch Air Master, though you ARE the reason I’m going to watch it as soon as possible. It sounds so amazing.
