Kiritsugu (Fate/Zero)

He may not have been my favorite character but he was the most fascinating to me. There was just so many conflicting factors influencing his actions, that even though his methods were questionable, I couldn't help but sympathize and understand where he was coming from. I still am not sure how to feel about him by the end of the series but he will definitely be one of the most memorable anime characters for me.

So basically you wanna know who my favorite Bleach character is. It's either Hitsugaya, Hirako or Byakuya.

The Conventional List:

1. Guts, from Berserk.


2. Shinji Ikari, from Neon Genesis Evangelion.


3. Accelerator, from A Certain Scientific Railgun (if you include his whole story).


The Unconventional List:

If you don't count him as the antagonist, then Griffith, from Berserk. This is a one-entry list. He wins.

Just out of curiosity, why do you think griffith is a antihero and not the antagonist?

Because even though he's done horrific things to achieve it, Griffith has successfully allied his army of apostles with humans and is basically creating a Heaven on Earth. And he's willing to shoulder any sin to do it.

Guts has even acknowledged it, and backed off from attacking him when he had the chance. He's waiting to see what Griffith's true intentions are (as are we all; this manga is taking its sweet time with plot development).

This raises questions about whether Griffith and Femto are separate entities, and what the rest of the Godhand are doing while Griffith is playing God on Earth, which I don't think has been covered as of yet in any of the arcs.

Griffith is essentially a driving force that won't turn aside no matter what the cost to himself or anyone else, but out of his atrocities a foundation for a kingdom that will end all atrocities might've been laid. If it can last, anyway.

I hope Kentaro Miura at least wraps some of this up sometime in the next two decades or so.

In any case, saying Griffith isn't the antagonist is definitely debatable, so I put him in a different list to reflect it.

It's basically taking the step of saying the antagonist of Berserk is something metaphysical, like the human condition, and both Guts and Griffith are protagonists battling against it in different ways, while also clashing with each other.

But that's a bit of a stretch, admittedly.

I'd have to say Alucard as the #1 anti-hero. I mean he's the vampire to end all vampires who works for a Protestant organization. No matter what he does whatever he wants to get the job done.

Also Kiritsugu is just a badass, so he gets my vote.
