For me personally Naruto. His high pitched voice, in Japanese, is so grating it turned me off from watching the show for a few years. Then somehow his English voice actor perfected the shrillness in his voice and made it even more unbearable. I've since been able to tolerate it enough to watch most of the series, but it's one of the main reasons I have a hard time getting into the show.


You do realize he's voiced by women in almost all languages, right?


Yes, I know Naruto is voiced by women in Japanese and English. It is not the fact that it is a woman doing the voice that is off-putting, but rather the very shrill, and grating, quality of how his character talks. I think it is more that Naruto yells a lot and in that yelling there's this almost screeching sound that gives me a headache. In contrast, I find for a female voicing a male character, Romi Paku gives a very pleasing, and not headache inducing, performance as Edward Elric and Toshiro Hitsugaya. Yuuko Sanpei also gives a fine performance in one of my all time favorite series, Eureka Seven, as Renton Thurston.

I see what you mean, and yes, Romi Paku does do a nice performance as Edward. There are also all the voice actresses who voice male characters from Hunter x Hunter, if one is taking about fine performances. The voice actresses for Naruto (Japanese and English) both do good performances as well, it's just where someone's voice for a role sounds pleasing to one it will grate on another. If any of that makes any sense.

I've seen a lot of anime, and a lot of irritating characters but the winner as most annoying.....most irritating.... goes to:

Sawako Kuronuma from Kimi no Todoke.

Seriously after watching the Valentine episode..for real? It was then I realized she is nothing more than a neurotic narcissist and her "act" is seriously irritating.

I couldn't stand her. I hated her after episode 7, but I like her character design.

I would say Captain Levi, but he grew on me towards the end of the Female Titan Arc.
I would probably say Sakura Haruno, I just absolutely hate her character.

For this season I'm going to go with Hiyori from Recently, My Sister is Unusual. She does nothing but torture and borderline rape a poor girl yet we the audience are somehow supposed to care about whether she can get to heaven or not? Screw that, what she really needs is a solid punch to the ovaries

The one that comes to mind is Yuka from Elfen Lied. I didn't mind the love triangle (if you can call it that). But the old trope of jealous girl beating the guy up for no reason pisses me off. It's pretty common, but it annoyed me especially in this series because it made her so much more 1-dimensional than the other characters and hurt the show as a whole.

Without a doubt, Elizabeth from Kuroshitsuji. Although I've noticed an ongoing theme in anime...the blonde female characters always seem to be really annoying...

Aside from Makoto from School Days, I would go with Sugou from Sword Art Online; after what he did I had the biggest grin on my face when as he got beaten to a pulp. Too bad he still didn't learn his lesson
