Everyone has different sort of taste in characters they like. My favorite type of characters are the cute but creepy psychopaths.And maybe kinda like a sadist. Such as Kira Kousuke and Gasai Yuno. Goddamn they're awesome.





So what's yours?


I do not know if someone has made this type of thread. So if they did, link me to it for proof so I can ask a mod to take this topic down.

Any type of character can be done really well, and any character can be done like shit. Whether or not I like a character depends on other things besides what type of character they are. That said, if they are done well, then there are some traits that grab me more than others. If I had to pick one, I'd say "calmness" is something that really appeals to me. Think Ginko of Mushi-shi or Watashi from Humanity has declined. You can throw anything at them, and they'll keep the same demeanor that they always have.

Well, he's doesn't play a big part in Prince of Tennis. But he nonetheless is still an important character.

Female - the shy cute girl

Male - The badass or the closet badass(the character that doesn't seem like a badass but actually is)

I enjoy the quiet types of characters who are later bad asses in animes! Or the outgoing but non cocky types.

I can't say I have a specific type of character that I prefer. A couple of my top characters would be Edward from FMA and Vash from Trigun, so I may have a thing for heroic characters with tragic, broken pasts, but still provide a great deal of humor. Then again those are 2 anime's that I have seen way too much, so they may be the characters I am most familiar with.

Otherwise I would say I am just a sucker for well written characters that break out of stereotypical anime roles. This is because, as much as I love anime, MOST anime that is released just lacks originality.

Well for a female character I usually prefer the ones who don't whine and just get on with it. I like it when the females aren't completely useless *cough* like Sakura or Orihime *cough* but can fight for themselves and have a high level of bad-assery.
PRIME EXAMPLE OF FEMALE PERFECTION:
MOTHA FUCKIN' YOKO. THAT'S WHAT.


As for males:
I like the psychos because normal male characters with no mental disability are just boring (very few exceptions). Reason: no particular reason, I just have a thing for psychopaths... and eyepatches. The same thing goes for males as they do for females, useless characters are what they are: USELESS, we don't need for Yukis running around.
PRIME MALE EXAMPLE:
ORIHARA IZAYA

Been my favourite male character pretty much since the moment he was introduced. He is a hard to the core sadist but not too much to be too over the top. He is a good character because he has a simple character design which isn't INCREDIBLY likeable but his mental instability and personality make him A-list.

My favorite character type is very cool/collected, but also rather dark/twisted/slightly sadistic. The first example that comes to mind is Sebastian Michaelis, though another favorites is Uchiha Itachi.

Funny I find socially awkward characters really funny (Nagato Yuki from Haruhi, Shizuku Mizutani from My little monster, Mashiro from Pet Girl of Sakurasou). Or characters in parody animes like Lucky Star, Gintama or Ixion Saga DT.

Interesting or mysterious
These are the characters that say really unconventional things and I wish I could know what they're thinking. Example, Chrollo from Hunter x Hunter.

Intelligent I love intelligent characters that does not have forced intelligence but appears to be naturally intelligent. Example, Aika from Blast of the Tempest or Light from Death Note or Chrollo from Hunter x Hunter.
