Now that i'm thinking about it, this topic should be put up. List your top five favorite characters. At least one has to be from a book. If all five are from books, you qualify as an actual bookworm.
...
I never enjoyed being at the far side of any spectrum.

1. Konata Izumi (Lucky Star)
2. Gray Fox (Metal Gear Solid)
3.Jethro Gibbs (NCIS)
4. Paxton Fettel (First Encounter Assault Recon)
5. Richard Belzer (I am Not a Cop)

1. Puddleglum (The Chronicles of Narnia)
2. Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly)
3. Domick (The Obernewtyn Chronicles)
4. Brashen Trell (The Liveship Traders Trilogy)

1. Lt. Col. Jon Smith (Covert One).
2. Mitch Rapp (Mitch Rapp Series).
3. Jack 'Huntsman' West Jr. (Seven Ancient Wonders).
4. Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal).
And Finally:

Heh heh errr... let's just say I adore his particular breed of cynicism.


Fair enough, same could be said for Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy for me. Mmm, pessemist robots.

Haha I was waiting for a thread like this. :D

1. Suzaku Kururugi (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion)
2. America (Axis Powers Hetalia)
3. Elizabeth Bennet (Pride & Prejudice)
4. Murtagh (Eragon)
5. Sherlock Holmes

My list also depends on my mood and which things I'm currently obsessed with. Gah even though I agonized over my list, I'm very unsatisfied with it...

This question is impossible. I could never narrow it down to five, let alone rank those five in order. However, I can give a few examples of characters it might include: Light, L, Lelouch, Lord Vetinari, Justice (Afro Samurai), and some others I'm too lazy to think of right now.

I suppose posting to say I have nothing to post is unhelpful, but oh well.

I'm sick of Suzaku hating, so your opinion is refreshing. I should have guessed you were a Suzaku-fan from your avi though.

Five??? Only five???

1. Mattrim Cauthorn (Wheel of Time Series)
2. Alice Cullen (Twilight)
3. Cara (Sword of Truth Series)
4. Paul Attriedies (Dune)
5. Oliver Stone (bunch of David Balducci books)

I actually like side characters more often than main ones... 3 of the 5 are not the main characters in the novels.

Haha why thank you, I do admit in the beginning of R2, I got really angry at Suzaku
, but I've never really hated Suzaku.

I think for a lot of people, as with Death Note, they feel they have to pick sides, they have to hate Suzaku to love Lelouch, and vice versa but I never felt that way. I like Suzaku and Lelouch, and I also like L and Light.

I think since people look at it through Lelouch's POV it seems like he's so much better than Suzaku, but it's really not so. In the end though, they are both great heroes. I like both of them, I just prefer Suzaku. I've read some really great arguments by people explaining why Suzaku isn't all people make him out to be. Personally I think his methods for peace/justice were a lot better than Lelouch's. The sad thing though is the chance that they'll work is very slim.

Sort of yeah.

Though the Zero Requiem WAS a good plan, and it did work.

I don't remember the term "Zero Requiem," but assuming you're talking about the end of the series, I would agree.

Oh 'the Zero Requiem' is what they called that plan.

Sadly, I have a feeling their plan might not have worked in today's world. Or maybe it would, you never know. It'd be nice to live then... If only for a little bit, the end of the last episode makes it seem like it was a utopia.

It doesn't make them worse, just more useless. Lelouch's methods killed tons of people.



Especially his jokes!

His best jokes are the ones he doesn't make on purpose. It never ceases to amuse me to see scenes that show his athletic ability (or complete lack thereof.) XD
