Favorite/Epic anime characters?

I had not seen this posted yet, so I had to go there.

So! In terms of epic characters, the first thing that comes to mind with me is Kamina. I love Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and he's just a phenomenal character. Hell, Gurren Lagann can provide actual pick-me-up's and motivational speeches. THAT ARE ACTUALLY MOTIVATIONAL. A lot of anime can't do that as flawlessly as Gurren Lagann can.

Spike Spiegel is another great character. Bebop is a classic, and, in my opinion, Spike is realistic, and multi-dimensional.

As for my personal favorites:

  • Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist)
  • Simon (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)
  • Mikuru Asahina (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
  • Koushiro Izumi (Izzy) (Digimon Adventure)
  • Mugen, Jin, and Fuu (Samurai Champloo)

I like way too many characters, but I figured I'd keep the list short for the moment. XD If anyone wants to discuss this, I'll totally go into way more detail about said characters than people probably want to hear. -laugh-

  • Kid Goku (Dragon Ball)
  • Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop)
  • Ein' (Cowboy Bebop)

If I tried, I probably couldn't pick any other absolute favorites. Sure, there are others that I like, but the aren't even on the same playing field as those three.

Reborn from Reborn! It's funny how a baby can nonchalantly say, 'I'm a hitman in the mafia.' And then people like Yamamato say, 'this is a fun game!'

  • Motoko Kusanagi (Ghost in the shell)
  • Yuuko Ichihara (xxxholic)
  • Itoshiki Sensei (Sayonara Zetsubou sensei)

Those are the only ones I can think of right now... But Motoko is my absolute favorite character X3. I too think Kamina is an epic character! Ridiculous and amazing at the same time, haha... ^^

First before I head into my list of faves I would like to say



Mkay, now that I've finished my spaz Komui moment, I must say that the characters in Samurai Champloo are sensational! Not to mention that Cowboy Bepop, the first anime I really knew was an anime and lead to my anime obsessions, has characters of sound realism, with a dash of plain EPICness. Other characters that have reached out to my tastes would be the characters of Kuroshitsuji, Fairy Tail, Reborn, D.Gray Man, Dogs and Gintama. And that is only to name a few. The reason for my not stating who the characters are is due to the lack of "bad" characters in the anime/manga themselves. There are just too many characters fer me to call out X3

@chiyo_sen loved ghost in the shell, though @sidriss is probably still sore I watched it without her ;)

  • Kamina (TTGL)
  • Ed Elric (FMA)
  • Maes Hughes (FMA)
  • Kyon (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
  • Izzy (Digimon)


EDIT: Looked back at FoxKaiya's post. Added Izzy to my list. He was my favorite from Digimon. I stopped watching it after about a quarter of the way through Digimon Adventure 02. And I agree with everything you said about Kamina. Once I was kinda depressed and feeling sorry for myself, so I rewatched the first episode to Gurren Lagann.

It worked.
