After blowing 20 hours on that series, I need to get entertainment value out of it somehow.

I do not hate this character but his popularity is insane.

Sebastian Michaelis from Kuroshitsuji.



He is beautiful but overrated too.

Light. He's a villain who deserves exactly what he got. L is also overrated because Light is the one that basically threw him a bone to keep the mind games between the two of them up several times. I find the mental chess game less entertaining and more "who can pull faster bullshit out of their ass"

Naruto. Or at least what I've seen from it. I just find him a very unlikable idiot with this obsession to save Sasuke which has needlessly padded out the series, made him look incompetent and stupid and overrides better practical solutions all for the name of friendship that Sasuke is completely unfazed by.

Taiga Aisaka from Toradora! Tsunderes get on my nerves!







These 4 characters I consider BLASPHEMOUS!

Let me preface this by saying that I haven't read the manga, yet I still feel justified in my pick because I don't think anything he could possibly do short of self-imposed exile as a monk could ever bring me to feel positively for this character.

Accelerator from index / railgun.

He's an arrogant, maniacal, mass-murdering, psychopathic serial-killer. And not even the cool, morally ambiguous kind - just plain old serial killer. I simply don't get what his appeal is. Every second he was on screen I just wanted him to die a horrible death. I didn't think anything could get me to actually like Touma, but somehow he managed to do just that. I'll never understand what his appeal is, but to each his own, I suppose.

The accelerator sequence only made me hate Touma more. The author cheated SO MUCH to make the main character win, and that's a main character that's already defined by the author cheating in his benefit.


I also really hate the nothing-guy (who's name I can't be bothered to remember) from Medeka Box, although folks seem to dig him. I get that you're trying to be postmodern and stuff, but you just don't have the talent!

Kamina from Gurren Lagann, he was way too annoying for me with his attitude - and Yoko, in a way, I didn't like how they forced a romance between them at least.

For me, definitely Light Yagami. He may be smart and good-looking, but he is one of the biggest egomaniac in the anime world. If he had shown some constraint, the let's just say that things would be much more favorable. Another character I can't stand is Monkey D. Luffy as he is just dumb as a brick and totally hard to take seriously given his goofy attitude. It's hard to believe so many others were able to join his cause given that he is quite delusional about his goals in life.

As far as females go, I am going to have to say Faye Valentine. I don't know exactly why, but I find her to be annoying just trying to mess around with the crew of the Bebop when she's not in action. And even though her show isn't out yet as an anime, she is gaining lots of popularity, and that would be Shimakaze of Kantai Collection. Something tells me I'm not going to like her character for some reason considering that I find her as the eye candy character that I can't stand.

This might get me some flak, and though it isn't that I can't stand these characters, but I don't understand their popularity.

Saber from FSN. She's a female King Arthur. She fights like a proper knight and is basically what PCs who play paladins want to be in video games (awesome swordfighters, not meat shields). Ok... and...? I get that she's pretty and badass, and has endearing quirks in the visual novel, but she doesn't have much character beyond "white knight" and "regret." I don't hate her, but I don't get why she's so popular that she's got something like 300 figures.

Mikasa from SNK is rather popular for a character that exists basically as an extension of someone else's will. She has even less character than Saber, but is still pretty popular just for being a badass female.

Uchiha Sasuke - I get that he's popular in Japan (sympathy due to filial piety), but toss aside that tidbit of cultural context, he just seems like a whiny kid who really, really needs a therapist. Instead of awesome jutsu maybe the Narutoverse should spend some effort on mental health. Would really help all those traumatized child soldiers, y'know?

Akemi Homura - got screwed over by the world / Incubators, but that happens to most named characters in the Magica universe. Her creepy obsession with Madoka doesn't help.



Not an animé per sé, but I don't understand the appeal of Rachel Alucard in BlazBlue (well it's got an anime adaptation!). Even if she is one of the good guys, she spends her time talking down to everyone in addition to being as difficult as possible (in a general sense). Yet she's so popular she's got a Nendoroid shipping with the BB:CP Collector's Ed. in NA.

Too tired to think of much more now...

Hinata Hyuuga - People only put her on a friggin' pedestal is because of her chest size and the fact that she's shy. Other than that, she's completely useless and overrated.
