Poll: Japanese Fans Name Anime's Most Unforgivable Characters

A very strange list of characters that anime watchers can't think of forgiving

In the latest Biglobe fan poll, over 3,000 Japanese anime watchers responded to a query asking them to name the most unforgivable anime character. It starts with someone recent and predictable, then gets completely weird from there. The antagonist from 1979's Science Fiction Journey to the West Starzinger made the list. So did a Miyazaki messianic hero.
