The answer is Shinji from Eva. It's a simple fact that he is one of the worst anime characters in existence

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.


Seriously, she is gonna have her own show?!!!

Awesome!

Where can I find details?!

Just dislike this one: Haruhi Suzumiya.

Naruto; too optimistic, I can't relate to a character that's too positive. I suppose that's why I always tend to favour the villains in that show... (I like Sasuke, Itachi and Madara more than the heroes).

Most characters from Vampire Knights; I don't know, their personalities are weird and stupid.

Natsu (fairy tail): see Naruto.
Ichigo: see Naruto.
Kirito (SAO): See Naruto.

I guess Levi i just don't get it. Same with that other weird chick in AoT who's name escapes me. People always seem to fall in love with weirdos in anime just for the sake of them being weird instead of them being interesting characters or something.

Given the part you bolded, I believe you misunderstood who the "her" in "her show" is referring to.

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.

I like her because even if she's up against an overwhelming opponent (Neji, Pain) she'll fight her timidity and put everything on the line. That was amazing to me. Granted, I can only think of two times when the plot allowed her to do so, but I think Naruto criminally under-utilizes its side characters to begin with. In hindsight I would've liked to see them rotate protagonists like in George Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire to build up some other characters more.

Different opinions are different, though. And it is true that I've got a thing for danderes.

I don't understand all the Hate for Shinji he is one of the most normal person in anime.

Lets see how most of you will do. You city is under attack your pulled off the street by an asshole father who never loved you. A gun is thrusted in your hands and your told go out and fight with zero training and no clue whats going on. After you some how survive that your told your going to have to do it again and again with little to no thanks and no pay on top of that you still have to go to school and you have to room with a drunk with daddy issues and a bitch with mommy issues and the one girl you have any kind of feelings for is a clone of your mother.

Now don't you think Shinji deserves a little respect or at lest people getting the hell off his back?

Pretty much these characters are Mary Sue, Gary Stu, Weak, Happy-go-lucky, Lack personality, Annoying, or etc.

Judging by some these comments, most of you want characters that feel human as possible. Even in the fictional world, you want someone to relate to.

Kizami from Corpse Party...

Every action he does in the VNs AND the anime OVA is extremely detestable.

These actions include, but are not limited to:
-Torturing a 14 year old girl
-Torturing animals
-Desecrating a corpse (By throwing it down some stairs)
-Killing and flaying open his "best friend"
-Having a weird, sadistic sister complex
-Killing Morishige (In the OVA)
-Eating a friggin' tooth

Just an all around creep.

I've spoken against Shinji Hate before as well. He's a character that attacks the audience by not giving them a superficial, vicarious power fantasy like you'd get from nearly any other anime. That makes him great, not pathetic.

Shinji's a window, not a door; and that makes people uncomfortable because you can't avoid seeing part of your own reflection. I don't have a problem with escapist fantasy, I like Dog Days. But it's not the only thing fiction is capable of.

(My two cents in Shinji's defense.)

I think it might be more appropriate to say we want characters who speak to us as individuals, so we'll all have different lists of who the best and worst characters out there are. Shinji, coincidentally, being an amazing example of this.

I could buy into an incredibly cheap character so long as they chime that one note I want to hear, but the more flawed a character is (or the more narrow their appeal in general), the fewer the people who will think they're good.

(I bet you could generate an accurate psychological profile based on which anime characters someone likes or hates.)

Haruhi Suzumiya
Well I would say that, but actually I don't think that I "can't stand" her, it's more that she is really really really overrated -.-

Haha, Cowboy Bebop's ED
I couldn't stand this guy, why was he even there, god, I just think there was no reason, none at all, beside being a plot device, nothing more. Well I might be overreacting a little, but still I didn't fancy him at all D:

Ah and I'll just leave this last one, probably have more to mention, but it will take too long to mention them D:!

Kaname Chidori from Full Metal Panc, yup, her, don't know the reason really, it's been awhile since I watched it, but I didn't like her at all, probably her personality <.<
