Guts from Berserk

Spoiler:

In a grim world where everything is stacked against him, he defiantly marched on in a way that few people even dared to.

Also:

Quote:

You're right, we are mortal and fragile. But even if we are tortured or wounded, we'll fight to survive. You should feel the pain we feel and understand. I am the messenger that will deliver you to that pain and understanding.
Reinhard von Lohengramm from Legend of Galactic Heroes.

Spoiler:


Few people can embody Ambition like him, other than Griffith. He is the most triumphant example of the ubermensch. Admired and respected by both friends and enemies, he have the luck to not have to see himself growing corrupt like many like him who walked to the top have done before.

Joseph Joestar from Jojo's Bizarre Adventures part 2

Spoiler:


Witty, crafty and one hell of a trickster. Of all JoJo, he is my favorite protagonist.

Kenshiro from Hokuto no Ken
Spoiler:


At first, a brutal vigilante in a post apocalyptic world. However, to anyone who have read the manga or watched the anime, he is one of the richer protagonists of the early 1980s. Kenshiro's development, however, can not ignore the contributions of various support characters like Rei and Toki, antagonists, like Shin and Jagi, and his great rival Raoh. The various fights and deaths eventually helps him to grow into a messianic archetype fit for the world he is forced to live in.

Honorable mentions

I second Onizuka, Okabe Rintarou, Kyon, Tomoya and Kenshin.

Guts from Berserk. Griffith is very close. I only want to pick one, though, and since Guts has a bigger sword, he wins.

Ichise from Texhnolyze. I liked his demeanor throughout the series.

I see your Reinhard and raise you one Yang Wenli. Much like Reinhard, Yang didn't become overconfident. Unlike Reinhard, however, Yang's humbleness might actually be more of an accomplishment considering how often he trumped the commanders on the Empire's side despite the odds usually being against him. As a character himself, Wenli was one of the few cast members whose personality was more natural compared to the Greek God-esque guys of Reinhard, Oskar, ect. and I really appreciated that from him. I'm not saying the other characters were bad but Yang Wenli was such a modest guy that it's difficult not to like him.

C'mon! Hei was awesome in S2! We need more alcoholics like him who are not afraid to put brats in their place!

I may be just biased towards alcoholics after watching Rescue Me and The Wire almost in tandem

TBH, I really hesitated about putting Yan Wen-Li for he really is my favorite character of the show.

I'm biased as well. I liked him as the cold and composed assassin he was in S1. S2 version seemed like some ex-soldier with a truckload of personal issues.

The only thing I liked in S2 was his mask. It was soooo bad ass all from that little extra scar/dent.

The one & only pirate hunter. One of the best bad ass lead characters ever who has a touch for getting lost a bit like myself.

Guts - Well, Sheba gave a nice description of him.

Spoiler for Image:


Mugen and Gin - They are the one the most outstanding pair of main characters I've seen.
Spoiler for Image:


Edward Elric - The only shounen lead that I like.

Seconding Gintoki and Spike for the reasons stated above!

Hei (Darker than BLACK S1)
Badass, adorable, badass, Chinese Electric Batman. I love his seiyu too, he has a fantastic voice.

Alucard (Hellsing)
He's just a ton of fun to watch, and I like his character design a lot. Also has a nice voice.

Ed and Roy (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Both are great on their own and they're also great playing off of each other. I love their relationship. They're also such fantastic fleshed-out characters; Arakawa Hiromu does great things with them.

Natsume Takashi (Natsume Yuujinchou)
I love that he's such an ordinary (if very, very nice) boy - not over-the-top like the so many anime characters. He'd be such a great friend.

I feel like I'd love Mugen too, but I have yet to continue Samurai Champloo after starting episode 1...

Had to look at my anime-planet <3's for others that I didn't immediately think of:

- Izaya (Dararara!!)
- Sousuke (Full Metal Panic (FUMOfUFIUFYU(T))
- Sakuragi (Slam Dunk)

I'd say my first choice would be the Apothecary from Nakamura Kenji's Bakeneko and Mononoke. He's extremely droll and very effective as a demon-slayer. The fact that he's voiced by Sakurai Takahiro just adds to his awesomeness.

Sousuke Sagara from Full Metal Panic!

This guy's a real expert in his field, and delivers when the situation calls for it. He also delivers when the situation doesn't call for it.

He's always ready.

Gon Freeccs from Hunter X Hunter : I really like his appearance (he's so cute ) and his personnality (despite being naive a bit).
Negi Springfield from Negima! : despite his little child appearance, he's a prodigy of magic !
Sasha from Qwaser of Stigmata : one of the strongest harem male leads I've seen in my life ; he's a total badass.
Natsu Dragneel from Fairy Tail : His hot-blooded personnality fit well within his fire strength, despite suffering motion sickness.
Ganta Igarashi from Deadman Wonderland : Despite being a total wimp, he somehow manages to show his badassness.

Most of my favorites have already been named

But anyways

Ginko Mushishi- I just have a thing for traveling characters. I think Ginko is a representation of what I wish I could do with my life: no ties just traveling the world. Not to mention I love Ginko's laid back attitude and the way that he doesn't see things as black & white but tries to help humans deal with the supernatural beings of the mushi without seeing them as evil or things that need to be destroyed.


Medicine Seller Mononoke- Another traveler, to describe the Medicine Seller I would say he is anime's equivalent to the wanderer without a name or past. He reminds me a bit of Toshiro Mifune's role in Yojimbo/Sanjuro or Clint Eastwood's role in his many Westerns.

Part of me wanted to know more about the Medicine Seller's past but I realized in the end his mysterious aura (is he even human?) is what made him such a great character, not to mention the wonderful acting by Sakurai.


Takashi Natsume Natsume Yuujinchou- Many characters have sad pasts but in most cases those sad pasts are why these characters initially act like jerks or have dark sides, etc. Natsume is the exact opposite of this despite a hard past he is overflowing with kindness. His fight with himself to grow close to others despite being scared at times is really a lovely story in itself.

And another thing I love about Natsume is I feel he transcends gender roles: he isn't physically strong just strong of heart, he's extremely nurting, and he is even allowed to cry. So on the surface he might seem a bit ordinary but under the surface is a character with so much depth.

Edward & Alphonse Elric Fullmetal Alchemist (Manga & Brotherhood ONLY)

I really cannot separate the two brothers in my heart. Fullmetal Alchemist is probably my favorite story ever and I initially fell in love with the story because of how close these two were (there is nothing like brotherly love) but what makes Ed & Al two of my favorites characters is how they didn't just show love for each other as the story went on they learned to love and be thankful to so many other characters around them. As Ed said at one point he wants to not only see Al's smiling face but everyone's. And I guess it's the fact that throughout the story they never gives up on their dream to get their bodies back but also the fact that they weren't willing to sacrifice anyone else to achieve this dream.



Some honorable mentions: Kenshin, Monkey D. Luffy, & Takemoto Yuta (the last from Honey & Clover because I think the first two are obvious).
