? average main character height i see is 170-180cm, Ichigo is 174cm, pretty standard. Normally the main character is not the tallest character, they are designed to be balanced, not too intimidating, yet outstanding enough to tell he is not your average person. For example, in Bleach, Kenpachi is taller than Ichigo to show overwhelming power. Though it is NOT a sin to be short, Toushirou at least has white hair to make him look powerful. First impressions matter, though it is not everything, it is a factor.

Unless, the main character is really designed to be your average joe, like Urashima Keitaro, then the height average drops to 160~170cm, think he is somewhere over 160cm.

Heck, not only in anime, movies and dramas are the same. Being taller IS a physical advantage interms of reachability and leverage, saying height doesn't matter is like saying there is no advantage in defending on top of a fortress at all. Of course, everything has their pros and cons, being short is advantageous interms of mobility, but really, it is all about being smart and using what you have to your advantage in specific situations. An example is Kenshin, you can tell he really uses speed and agility rather than power as his height shows........but in the end his master is stronger all-round

if you read their stats.. they are not all that tall.. mostly around 175-185...

those in slam dunk are tall.. Rukawa is 187 (^.-) but he's not the tallest..

the gals are short.. usually around 150+.. that's why when they stand beside the guys.. the guys look freaking tall...

I'm definitely taller than most average anime gals..
