Depends on him much I like the show. If I really like it, I'll remember most of the characters' names. Bad anime would mean I remember only the lead.

I'm pretty bad with names in general, just takes me time to learn them. Really sucks when I meet a person I want to be friends with and I have to hear their name 3 times before I remember it

Most anime I would only learn the names of all main characters if its more than 15 episodes, then I'll forget most of the names after starting another anime.

Depends on the series. The good ones that I like, no, I remember at least the main cast and my favorite characters. I may not remember a lot if the side cast if I don't get heavily invested in the series. In series I get heavily involved with, no, I will remember most of the cast in the series.

Depends on how much I like the character, their role in the series. I memorize lots of useless information, including most of the character's names from the anime shows I've watched (I can still remember the main character's names from my first anime), but sometimes, if they're not characters I particularly care for, I don't bother to remember their names. Another factor is the uniqueness of said character's name, or its commonness. Characters with commonly used names, or unique names, I can remember their first name and/or surname more easily.

I don't at all. If I like the show then I'll remember the characters. If I don't like the show or don't give a crap about it then I won't bother to remember. The only time this isn't true is when there is a shit load of characters. And even so this isn't 100% true because I remembered all the character names in Gintama and MOST in Katekyo Hitman Reborn!.

I usually remember their names after a moment or two, but I do find Japanese names to be the hardest to remember.

It depends on how memorable the character is. But generally, I don't have a hard time remembering their names.

The only thing I'm great at remembering is numbers, if I've read them sometimes of course.
I even forget names of characters in anime I really liked I can't mention the names of the characters in like Steins;Gate, except for their nicknames (Super haker, Mad Scientist, Christina. I feel really ashamed that I didn't remember Mayushii since she's my favorite character from it And now I became sad, thinking about the anime :| )

If it is a really good anime then I can remember 90% of the characters names just because I care for the show enough to do so. Most shows - I my remember my favorite character's name, but the rest can be long forgotten after I stopped watching a show. There are times when I watch a show and I just remember a handful of names then only remember the others when they are called out properly. I mean - Attack on Titan I just remember the main three characters names. Doesn't mean I don't care for some of the other characters - there are a few I think steal any scenes they are in, but I just can't remember their name...
