Light Yagami is the best! And I think his ideas were correct but he took it too far (Like killing suspected criminals and people on death row and people who did there time or are doing there time)

I thought so. Sorry it's just when Death Note first came out there was this like Cult of Kira thing going on that really disturbed me. I've been kind of touchy about it ever since.

It's not so much an obsession with the characters that I meant, but rather...oh how do I put this...
I don't think there's anything wrong with rooting for a villain or preferring a villain to a hero. What bothers me was that when DN was at its peak of popularity there were a fair number of people going around saying that they honestly believed a world ruled by Kira would be a better place and that Light was right to do what he did. That's what troubles me.

The word hero is overloaded in modern culture. Originally, it literally meant "the strongest". Which was fine, it meant the most powerful character in the narrative, or one of them. So, the most muscly. Now, however, it's become conflated where "the strongest" has to be also "the protagonist", "the most admirable" and "the guy who beats everyone up and wins in the end".

As a result, with all the added meanings, it's no surprise the idea of the hero collapsed somewhere along the way and people started talking about "anti heroes", but that's just as unstable and meaningless. Does that mean it's the total opposite of the hero? So, the weakest, least admirable person who can't beat anyone up but who is also the protagonist? Or the antagonist who is the most admirable person and beats some people up, but not others? Or what?

As a result, I picked "other". My hero, though, is Godzilla, and he is also my anti hero, and my tax accountant. He does great work. Another anti-hero that comes to mind is the pro/antagonist of "The Man Who Used the Universe", but while the poll doesn't say it seems like we are talking about anime, and that's not an anime. In a pinch, I guess Alucard would do.

Addendum: I totally forgot Kaiki from the "Monotogari" series ( series-es? sounds like gollum.. what's teh plural of series... no, i refuse to look that up ). In spite of my criticism of the whole overloaded "hero" and "antihero" term, Kaiki DeiShuu pretty much squares the circle and fits a certain definition of the term anti hero. He's probably the best one anime has come up with lately.

I Personally prefer villains over heroes.because sometimes heroes get very typical and boring and anime heroes/main characters personalties are getting very overused!
A world ruled by Kira would be both better and worse.

I will forever support Kira! Light is who I intend to model myself after. He is everything I could ever hope to be.

Not to say that Light is totally correct in what he did, BUT


a fair number of people going around saying that they honestly believed a world ruled by Kira would be a better place


Now look at our current governments and how we are controlled by the Mega-Corps and the Uber-wealthy. Look how wall street committed financial fraud causing the economy to collapse, but do they get punished? NO! Too big to fail (LOL) As such they get to privatize the profits and socialize the risk!

To say that a world ruled by Kira would be better is actually true.

What you are missing is the SAD TRUTH that the system we currently have is so disgustingly corrupted that a Kira run world looks good BY COMPARISON!
