Naruto.

It may sound lame, but he really inspired me in days I felt lonely. And he taught me to never give up and value the friends you got.
Also it taught that no matter how bad a person may be, there is always reason to their behaviour.
Once again, it may seem lame, he is my role model and hero.

This. Naruto is a huge inspiration to me, and made me realize the importance of teamwork and friendship.

While not "all time favorite", (I like too many!) she certainly ranks up there among my most beloved characters - Yoko Nakajima from 12 Kingdoms.



Yoko is incredible because of her immense, moving and profound character development. She goes from being a whiny, bland high-school student, to the capable, brave, upright Emperor of a country in a fantastical world.

When she is taken to this new world, Yoko has to go from being this submissive, weak girl to someone who has to learn to depend on herself. She has to find out who she really is in order to survive.

What makes Yoko so great is that she realizes that she made mistakes, and accepts that she was a downright unlikable doormat of a person. She confronts her mistakes, realizes them. She battles her demons both literally and figuratively, and overcomes her fears, her insecurities, and her personal problems. She becomes strong physically, mentally, and emotionally - and she learns to believe in herself, and finds out who she is (not who people want her to be) as a person. When Yoko when she discovers her flaws and shortcomings, she doesn’t hide from them, but she accepts her flaws, and learns to better herself both as a ruler and as a person.

She goes from being a most unmemorable girl, to a noble, kick-ass Queen in one of the most realistic, detailed and amazing character transformations I have ever seen. And the beauty about Yoko is that she keeps on growing. More and more sides of her are developed and revealed as the story goes on, and she keeps working through them - bettering not only herself, but also her new kingdom which she must bring back to its feet.


THIS.

Ohhhhh this is a hard one. I'd say it's a tie between Light Yagami and Lelouch vi Britannia. Both hold the traits I deem most important, and I think that their goals are beyond noble. Their ideals are very similar to mine. Words can't even describe the admiration I feel towards those two.

Sakamoto Ryoma, who has been animated in many animes from Shura No Toki to Gintama. The man himself is a real life inspiration for me, being the Japanese version of Martin Luther King, Jr. Giving his life to change the world and see that all men have equal rights, not restricted by some archaic government system based upon discrimination.

Simon. Kamina taught us a lot, too, but Simon came to embody those ideals of believing in yourself. He rose from the bottom, all the way to the top.

Lucrezia Noin (Gundam Wing), Haruka Tenou/Sailor Uranus (Sailor Moon), Tashigi (One Piece), Riza Hawkeye (Fullmetal Alchemist), Angel and Yuri Nakamura (Angel Beats!), and Satsuki Kiryuin (Kill la Kill).

These are all (maybe Yuri and Angel aside) competent girls and women who are written in positions of authority who are not subject to the Smurfette Principle and add more to their respective stories than serving as devices for a romantic subplot. Pretty good role model material as far as I'm concerned.

Elmer Albatross of Baccano!

This is a guy who spent much of his life as part of a cult, and was in line to become a human sacrifice, but still testified on behalf of his captors when they were found out. His go-to solution to any conflict is to try and cheer up those involved in order to avert it. He's not martially-inclined, like many of his fellow alchemists on the Avenna Avis, but still got directly involved in the fighting that happened aboard it in an attempt to defuse it. Given the chance to make a wish, he makes it for the sake of somebody else. He acts as an advisor and confidante to many of his fellows, and is the only friend of at least one of them. He has no enemies, aside from Szilard, who seems to be content ignoring him.

He's a cheery guy. So much so that he irreverently tries to improve the mood of a girl whose fiancee was just killed. He wears a constant smile, but when he can make a difference, he does. He knows where he stands on issues that people consult him about, but is comfortable letting them make their own decisions, and when there's nothing he can do about something, he just. Lets it go. That's the best part. Modern society tells us that apathy is stodgy, half-assed, and even immoral, but Elmer proves that it doesn't have to be. Elmer doesn't let circumstances get in the way of his good mood, no matter how bad they might be. And by the very fact that he's capable of smiling no matter what, he's capable of inspiring others to do the same, as he does time and again during Baccano!

Elmer embodies the main theme of one of my favorite anime: "You're alive. Isn't that pretty awesome?" He's a benign presence whenever he's around, and with his unflappable good humor and keen sense of what he is and isn't capable of, he is the king of happy apathy. Help when you can, never get it anyone's way if you can help it, and live your own life while letting other people live theirs.
