This section is dedicated to the discussion of Japanese Anime and Manga — as long as it's not Pokémon related! Want to geek out about a long time classic? Or maybe you keep up with currently airing anime, and you want to join in on the excitement and discussion? You've come to the right place!
I've had a proper think about this and it's really hard, I love so many characters. Some of you will know that I enjoy vast adventure stories, psychological thrillers, big robot fights, fluffy shoujo romance and everything in between.
My favourite character is probably Hibiki Tachibana from Senki Zesshou Symphogear. She's a cute girl that punches things really hard.
Here's a clip of her punching through a mountain.
As to why she is so important to me? I'm not entirely sure. I mean, she is a lovely girl and she is really good at punching things but I feel that this isn't really that rare in anime. She's just the one for me.
i've watched too many animes, my favorite character shifts every now and then >.<
my favorite character as of now must be giorno from jjba. close second is chika from love is war. see the contrast between the two? hahaha
loves giorno's "resolve" ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) and chika's bubbly attitude <3
Uh at one point it was Nico Yazawa and it wasn't anymore complex than "she's actually kinda fun". In fact, a character being my favorite character rarely goes any deeper than that. I think it's probably still Nico atm, for the same reasons as before.
Michiru or Sailor Neptune is one of my favourites. I've always really liked her from when I first saw her, I think her perfection and poised, elegant character was just really attractive to me. Possibly the only mary sue that doesn't irritate me. I also really love Kurosawa Dia, other than her adorable dual serious and quirky personality, the episode where she felt left out seriously resonated with me. I've always been left out in social groups, and it's mostly my fault because of my awkwardly crap social skills. When Dia was upset that everyone else seemed so close, and she was a little further out of the friendship bubble because the others felt like they couldn't connect to her, I truly got so emotional. This hit so close to home. I also went through a period where I adored Hinata Hyuuga, her shy personality was super relatable.
The common trend in these characters is that they all possess very elegant and ladylike qualities and appearances. It's something I really admire and idolise. My parents are super old-fashioned Chinese and always told me growing up that I should be more ladylike/feminine/graceful, but I'm totally not any of those things lol.
Ghiaccio from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Vento Aureo.
Never have I enjoyed a minor villain as much as I have Ghiaccio. He's the antithesis of how an someone with ice powers would usually behave. He's loud, constantly frustrated, and easily ticked off by the quirks of the English language (if only Crunchyroll's subs didn't screw that up). It was great when I got to see him rant about Venice (cough, Venezia) animated. I love his design, his voice, his personality, his Stand, and his arc. His entire being just screams "perfect" to me.
