91st Place; 10-Way Tie (15 Votes)
MAI TOKIHA, Mai-HiME
Orphaned at a young age, Mai tries so hard to be a strong role-model for her younger brother. I am impressed by her style and grace, especially when in the face of danger. She is definitely the most versatile character in all anime.
HIKARU HITAIICHIN, Ouran High School Host Club
I envy Haruhi for having best friends like Hikaru and Kaoru. I wish they were mine T^T. I love Hikaru cause I love the way he tells Kaoru's little secrets out in their little devil act~
FATE TESTAROSSA, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
Fate is one of the strongest anime characters not only physically, but emotionally. After suffering at the hands of a mother who hated her and who eventually chose death rather than to face the world, Fate still has the strength to smile and make new friends, a strength that not many people have.
ALPHONSE ELRIC, Fullmetal Alchemist
I like Alphonse's character, he’s a sweet little brother, a strong warrior, a wise scientist, and a mature man although he is still a child. Although trapped in a suit of armor, he is willing to live with an invisible smile in his face
RINI (CHIBI), Sailor Moon
Rini is a playful girl, but she is very kind and helpful to people.
HEERO YUY, Shin Kidou Senki Gundam W
Heero Yuy is simply what he should be... oh sure, anyone can sit in a Gundam and blow up other Gundams quite easily... but even without a Gundam, Heero can jump out of a building with a half open parachute and survive... and no, he doesn't run away from his Gundam when he self-detonates it (like some other characters we know *cough* Athrun *cough*) ... oh and WING ZERO RULES!!!
HIKARU SHINDOU, Hikaru No Go
He does not forget those who have helped him before and strives to achieve his dream no matter what.
LI SYAORAN, CardCaptor Sakura
CCS has always been one of my all time most favorite animes. Syaoran is just so adorable, he has his lone wolf side, but he's there to support Sakura when he's needed. Plus his blushes and signature scowl just make him so lovable.
NAOTA NANDABA, FLCL
Naota-kun is just a regular kid that has a plethora of outrageous events upset his boring life. Being able to stay sane through the entire journey of space-police babes, robots acting as maids and his classmates saying he's married makes it so Naota deserves a spot in the top 100 characters of all time.
YOH ASAKURA, Shaman King
Yoh is another person I admire, he's calm when he fights. He lazy but he can really be powerful if he really wants to.
83rd Place; 8-Way Tie (16 Votes)
SYAORAN, Tsubasa Chronicle
Syaoran has made several appearances in CLAMP's famous works, but in Tsubasa Chronicles he shines. To save the one he loves he is perfectly willing to lay down all the joys and happiness he has in his life. His determination and sense of justice are admirable, and it is with his clear vision that he is able to see his path, even when it is clouded and hidden.
MITSUKUNI HANINOZUKA (HONEY), Ouran High School Host Club
Honey is so cute and tiny, but he's also a feared martial artist, which make him absolutely amazing when it comes to plot possibilities.
NATSUKI KUGA, Mai-HiME
Natsuki Kuga is female coolness personified. Everything about her, from her long dark hair and serious face to her damn cool dual pistols just exudes dark and moody beauty. She's as cool as Shizuru, but where the latter is emotionally ungraspable, Natsuki is much easier to empathise with. And she even has a cute side! What more do you need?
She's kind, caring and fights to keep her family safe.
VEGETA, Dragon Ball Z
It wasn't until I read reviews on this site that I realised that many people consider DBZ to be pretty awful. I'm perfectly aware that many fights drag on for 20+ episodes, but one thing I remember is that I Kept Watching Regardless. And one of the main reasons for that is Vegeta. From his initial defeat at the hands of Goku and the Zi Fighters, through to his eventual realisation that Goku has surpassed him completely, Vegeta's angst and competitiveness make him stand out from the other heroes. Vegeta's gradual conversion to the goodies side, and his drive to surpass the "low born" Goku, make him one of the few characters to truly develop in this series. For his sarcastic wit, his stubborness, his deeply buried redeeming qualities and, most of all, for sustaining DBZ through almost all of its 219 episodes, Vegeta deserves a place in the top 100 Anime Characters of All Time.
YUKIO TANAKA (KOYUKI), BECK, Mongolian Chop Squad
Koyuki reminds me of myself in a lot of different ways and that is probably why I like him so much. But the thing that I like most about him is that he's real. You can see the passion he has for music and just how much he wants to succeed throughout the series.
RE-L MAYER, Ergo Proxy
She is cool because of her blue eyeliner, her amusing shrewdness, her determination in getting what she wants, and her obstinate courage. She may act like a prima-donna, but she knows how to deliver when the going gets tough.
NEJI HYUUGA, Naruto
I think Neji is one of the coolest characters for several reasons. First of all, his fighting style is simply awesome, and he is a genius at juken (gentle fist) taijutsu. Second, his backstory and his clan history is one of the most interesting and sympathetic in the series. And I also like him for his attitude (before and after his fight with Naruto), and he is a good example of how people can change over time.
78th Place; 5-Way Tie (17 Votes)
BONTA-KUN, Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu
FUMOFFU!!!! When a cute mascot is armed with a shotgun it makes the whole series more hilarious!
ITSUKI MINAMI (IKKI), Air Gear
I have to give credit to Ikki, awesome skills and his attitude rocks, who doesnt respect a kid that gets naked and smacks a little kid in the back of the head with his junk!!
SAI FUJIWARA, Hikaru No Go
Sai's character may be based upon a culture from 1000 years back, but his personality epitomises appreciable qualities of the human spirit. Persistence, honor, humility, strength, focus... and that male/female dichotomy that most chicks dig. He is a figure that all people of this world should work towards becoming like: powerful, wilful and humble.
TOHRU HONDA, Fruits Basket
Although quite a pushover, Tohru is very genuine. She never complains and she is very forgiving always being a pillar of support for those around her. And even though she is quite fragile, she knows her weakness and always aims to be a better person.
SAYA OTONASHI, Blood+
Fragile little girl with big sword. And she's a vampire. Need I really say more?
76th Place; 2-Way Tie (18 Votes)
TENMA TSUKAMOTO, School Rumble
Good ol' Tenma-chan! How can you not love her? She's incredibly innocent and naive. Also shockingly oblivious at recognizing boys' feelings for her. Tenma-chan is so incredibly charismatic that you'll fall in love with her! It is an absolute pleasure watching her in School Rumble.
TSUKASA NISHINO, Ichigo 100%
Tsukasa is the good, all-rounded girl. She is cute, funny, a little shy and yet can speak her mind about how she feels. She is the popular girl in the school, the one all the guys like but can't have. I loved her.
