So, who is the most interesting supporting character in anime that would make a great main character? Name a supporting character that you think is very interesting and show a picture. List the name of anime series that character comes from as well.


Bonus Question:

Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo

Shisui from Naruto. Him stopping the Coup, or gathering the Uchiha to go to another village would be loads more interesting than Naruto's story.

Most uninteresting MC in an anime is easily:

Kirito from SAO (duh, the easy answer).

Hiro from Franxxx.

Kasuga Kyousuke from Kimagure Orange Road.

Whatever the hell the MC's name is from Kakegurui.

Goku from DBZ.

Shirou from Fate (Rin would be a much, much better MC)

Naruto AND Boruto from their respective shows. Sarada is the needed MC for Boruto, or even some new kid in a different village that ISN'T in the Land of Fire for Christ's sakes.

Ichigo from Bleach. Rukia for MC please.

Would you believe it? Mine would be Kotomi Ichinose.
Those first couple of episodes when she iis first starting to talk to the rest of the girls is some of the sweetest stufff ever and her backstory was compelling and heart wrenching and I loved her. The first character I ever related to so much in anime.

Worst main character would have to be Kazuma from Konosuba. I just really don't like his personality, like, I understand that it's jokes but jerks usually don't make me laugh. They need to get it just right for a character like him to be funny to me and I just don't think Konosuba pulls it off that well.

For a "jerk" MC to work they have to have a redeeming quality aside from just being a jerk or they have to develop said qualities as a character arc. Kazuma does neither. He's just a punchline that keeps recycling itself episode to episode long past its expiration date.

I want a Nabiki Tendo (Ranma 1/2) spinoff. Think about it, it'd be the Nerima version of The Sopranos. In a word: amazing.

The most uninteresting main character I've encountered is a tie between a huge number of generic ecchi harem series' main protagonists. They're designed to be as one-dimensional as possible, and sadly that mission is frequently accomplished.

I'd have made it myself if someone hadn't already started one to a pretty good degree of satisfaction:

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12327719/1/What-Do-You-Want

A sort of Ranma x Nabiki story (because that's my ship, of course) that gives her centre stage and weaves its way through all the other ships in the process. It's as yet incomplete, but has updated regularly from month to month for quite a while now. It has especially taken on more of that The Sopranos hue I mentioned in the more recent chapters, which is the sort of story where I think Nabiki is most in her element and able to truly shine.

Trafalgar Law from One Piece would make for a good main character of his own spinoff, going into adventures before the big alliance and stuff.

Klaus V. Reinherz would be a good one from Kekkai Sensen, just love that dude a lot lol

For most uninteresting, Shirou from Fate is pretty high up there. He's just a boring protagonist that has always failed to compel me to like him.

Though the worst protag to me is Ichika from Infinite Stratos for being the most bland and dense harem protag I've ever seen.

This times a 1000. While Deathnote was about Light, until L. was in it, the show was brilliant. Mello was just such a half-assed attempt to recapture that brilliance.

Levi from Attack on Titan. Cool character, here's hoping for season 3!

As for the worst,

Tatsuya Shiba. A bit too boring for my taste.

I would love to see "Candy Store" from Non Non Biyori get a spinoff. Maybe it could be a candy of the week thing since food anime are so popular now. ;)

As for most uninteresting... oh god where to begin...

In my case, it's every last Straw Hat Pirate who isn't Luffy. You could practically make eight entire spin-off series out of each of the non-Luffy Straw Hats. Either that, or Ace and Sabo.

Most uninteresting main character is Ash Ketchum. Not because he's so bland and generic, even though that's the case, but rather because he's just too incompetent as a Pokemon trainer. He loses to everyone except for Jessie, James and Meowth of Team Rocket, and even then, it's mostly because (a) they're as incompetent as he is, and (b) even if they aren't, he'd defeat them anyway because they're main-villains and he's the main-hero, and not because of anything inherent within either Ash or Team Rocket other than just their hero/villain dynamic. He also never earns gym badges through skill and strategy like most other trainers would, so much as either dumb luck or pity. And, it's due to that combination of factors, plus others I might have missed, that it is no wonder that he always loses every Pokemon League he entered so far, even against a Pokemon whose type is weakest against his own (e.g. Alain), or against a Pokemon trainer who is even more incompetent than him (e.g. Tobias).
