Whether it's their attire, personality, background history, weapon, etc. which manga character do you think has the best character design? and if you can, plz post a pic :]

I think Himura Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin has an awesome character design...

He's a red-haired samurai O.O! with a cross-scar, and he's got a mysteriously, melancholy past, and a cool sword w/ its blade reversed. He can also cook, do laundry, survive Kaoru's sadistic beatings, and kill people w/ killer moves.

My second choice would be Eve from Black Cat

She's a nanomachine/human (?) She's cute but lethal. Wears gothic clothes. Can fly, cut, hammer, etc. using her fabulous hair. She's an endearing book worm and her she's often got a cold attitude and occasionally surprizes us w/ her kawaii moments.
The other Chronos Numbers are pretty cool too...but I can't go on forever xD

I agree with Kenshin and Eve!~

I'm too lazy to post a picture, but I think Shizuka Hio from VK is good... ^^
So are Clare and Teresa from Claymore....
Agito and Ikki from Air Gear..

All of them have awesome character design!~

I really like the character designs for Berserk, Fist of the North Star, and Deadman Wonderland.

Do Square Enix characters count?(some series have manga)

It's not that they're super popular, but the fact that most of their outfits are just so unique and original, and at the same time very pretty.


(Methinks Tetsuya Nomura should be a fashion designer... even if he does have a belt/zipper fetish)

Also love the Priestess designs from the game Pristontale(Don't think they have a manga in english):


---

The Varia from KHR are also very unique:


How they all wear the same uniform, but add their own modifications to it.

I like almost ALL the main characters created by Yuki Kaori and Sorano Kaili. They are so... beautiful and stylish.

If you are not familar with Sorano, just look at the manga version of Shirogane from Monochrome Factor and the guy from Mother Keeper. His characters are usually very fashion-oriented and/or futuristic, depending on the manga.





And Eyes Rutherford from Spiral: the Bonds of Reasoning. I love his outfits, hair and eyes! If you read the manga, you will be stunned by the clothes he wears - so cute and dashing.

Kyoko from Skip Beat= her growth as a person and as an actress really showed. The development was in a sense realistic than most females of this genre. Furthermore, the mangaka really succeeded in adding depth to her persona as well as the characters of those around her.

For character design.....hm...personality wise and fullness wise I'd say Taisuke from Alive - The Final Evolution. How well made the characters are is amazing...there's basically no plotholes in that awesome series from their designs and personalities...xDD

But for best overall character design, I'd say Haine from Dogs: Bullets and Carnage. Even though a lot of him is shrouded in mystery, a young man who was used in a genetic experiment when he was young to allow him to never die, suffered from such shock to actually become afraid of women, and his kickass gun skills and looks, Haine is AWESOME.
