Ever realize that your most of your favorite characters are similar in one way or another.
Well I want to know what it is that makes them your favorite, be it plot, personality, looks or something else.
Personally I seem to favor the silent type such as Mai Kawasumi or Tenshi, they usually have a mysterious back story or some relation to the main character.

for guys, i just love the ones that are really smooth and collected... like Ren from Skip Beat or Syaroan from Tsubasa Chronicle...they're sexy!

as for girls, as long as they don't whine incessantly, they are fine in my book

Okay, so what draws me to certain characters? Well, for guys, for me to even take interest in them, it has to be their looks first! Then, once I watch whatever they are starring in, that's when I initially start to see if I like there personality. Then, comes if I think they are good with the plot of the story. For girls, I'm okay with them if they don't whine a lot.

Characters that talk rough, but yet have a soft spot for caring for others (buff - human tank of the band of protagonists)

They usually come with the traits below
- tanktop (only abs are shown)
- bandana
- they can be a father to the protagonist or that they have a son or daughter of their own
- taller than the main protagonist
- wearing fingerless gloves (for fighting cartoons)
- wearing combat boots/army camaflouge pants
- has that class clown-type attitude

1 - The guy dies protecting his team
2 - The guy survives and show ends on a happy note

For me, I like both gender's to be strong willed, collected, coldly sarcastic ( ) ; another good trait is when you can look up to them some how. The way that they can keep it together with all the crazy stuff that is going on in life. The wisdom some characters put out there is easily relateable.
What really makes a good character is when they lose their cool once. Its quite the shock factor.

Character that are strong (not necessarily in strength, but mind) and don't whine all the time or put themselves down often and it would also be best if they are humorous in some way and if they have a good heart or show some good nature, and often characters that never give up and are determined. Also if they have an interesting background story that isn't cliche or over-dramatic, or if they are mysterious in some way that also draws you in more to the character and a lot of the time it's best when you see a progression with the character throughout the anime. oh, and also looks!

..It's really just a character that isn't so much of a cliche.

Well I think the characters I like the most are the ones I can relate to. Like being lazy or making up some nonsense story just to confuse someone so you have to work even less. Or characters I can look up to and think: If this were real I want to be his/her friend. That sort of stuff.

For guys, I like the ones who have a fundamentally nice personality, but they have anger issues which they are trying to keep controlled.
For girls, I like the true bad-ass's. Not the ones who talk tough and then need the guys to save them, but the truly tough ones who fight there own battles and can lay a serious smackdown. Below is my fav. Maki from Airmaster

I just love the look on that dudes face :D, two others i like are Revy from Black Lagoon, and Jo from Burst Angel.

Guys...don't know, I like about everything, from looks to a strong yet smooth personality. I really don't have a certain type as long as they are not immature, behave like kids or are womanizer and have NO long hair!. (I have most of my favorite guys in my profile). Types like Izaya, Griffith, Hisoka, Hijikata, Johan etc oooh I don't like happy go lucky guys, unless they're hiding their true personalities/emotions because of a messed up back story (tsuzuki from YnM)...

Girls...I usually don't care or look at the girls. But I have two favorites: Mafuyu from Seikon no qwaser and Chikane from Kannazuki no Miko. I like the serious yet smart, strong type. No innocent, shy, cute girl >_> annoying!

Entertainment. Somebody with a colorful personality, somebody dorky, somebody who's at least cute looking. Really, anybody I don't mind watching for long periods of time.
