Present in what in all of them what? Third strike wasn't an main event in SBO from 2009-2011.

And again 3rd strike. When was the original third strike? When is the HD?
Do you actually know what Ura Tougeki even is? I have the impression that you have no idea what the actual idea of that tournament is.

As for third strike, it was remade with hd graphics last year.. Seriously, atleast pretend to know what we are talking .

Please answer this and tell me how it does not prove my point that character designs is the primary factor in making characters recognizable?
Yet you still bloody think that character design itself is everything by using this "make a gallery" excuse over and over.
As for making a gallery, it 's doomed from the start. The fact is that your gallery suggestion is so stupidly vague that i can put everything in it and i can easily manipulate the results depending on what the contents of my gallery are and the audience that i am showing it to.
It makes no difference if i put BRS and Okabe in it if i fill the entire gallery with completely different things like monsters, comic book characters or real live people and show it to either small children ,teenage girls or the non asian, non caucasion couple in my street.

Doesn't have to. Some people didn't even watch madoka during it's airing but it was recommended by others.
Also there is probably a reason why the first 2 episode discussions had less than 40 replies while starting from episode 3 the amount of replies rose to over 300.
People who started watching it from the start had different expectations.

Earth to Martian mage: this topic is actually called "What Makes An Anime or Character(s) "Identifiable"?"
How am i changing the topic again? A show in this context was an anime show, if i also need to remind you of that as well.

Do i need to remind you of these quotes before you are sticking with the 17 years of anime excuse that you haven't brought up earlier.

Which suggested that you did not watch madoka for it's design thus making you a hypocrite for this

I don't care if you didn't initially watched madoka with any expectations, because you already admitted that design was not your primary reason to begin with.

Yet you haven't convined me on the fact that Ryo looks like a generic ninja to me. What is supposed to be different from him? He still wear the traditional ninja head band and dark colours.

If you can't understand what i am implying by quoting all of this: you haven't even bothered posting anything except character designs. In what part of all these posts that you have made have you said something about these "secundary"factors ?. All i have been reading was character design this, character design that and i haven't seen you post any other factors so far.
