"Crazy manly swordfights" as you stated are not actually manly, but rather being cool or kicking ass. Sengoku Basara is just as badass, if not more than either Yu Yu Hakusho or Helling, but none of those anime are really manly (which is about having strong inward character, perceptions or feelings and may relate to fighting until the very end for those one felt it was his or her duty to protect).

Manliness may also represent loyalty and honor if a character is willing to relinquish, yield or compromise life or a limb for the ones a man, woman or child care about. A similar example would be seen in the later episodes of either Fullmetal Alchemist TV series.

I'm not at all sure why an opinionated post such as mine needs to be contested (same as any of the posts here, really)...I guess I just need to be taught that I don't know a thing about what makes someone manly? It seemed to me that what does or does not constitute 'manliness' was more subjective, but oh well. I humbly disagree.

Well, the fact is that being manly isn't easy, which is something that has been achieved by very few characters, nor should it be and I wonder how you can be so good at comprehending GAR if you know so much.

Fate/stay night (2006) You can't deny the anime where GAR came from!

I never claimed to know much of anything, I was just voicing a simple opinion that I thought was meant to be taken in a subjective light. I guess I'm just confused over why you'd want to argue about it. "Hey, I think Sengoku Basara is pretty GAR and manly!" - that's all I was saying. Wasn't that the point of this thread? To share fun little thoughts like this? I wasn't looking to argue.

You could have easily just said "Naw, I don't think SB is a good fit. This other show though!" and I'd be all, "Oh it's just me then, okay"...but instead you chose to give me a lecture on how and why I was so wrong, as if I'd stated my words as absolute fact. I just don't see the point. Do you think I'm some drooling SB fujoshi who needed a slap in the face? I know I don't have any proof, but I'm not on their side.

I agree is that Sengoku Basara is still good, regardless. I mean, pretty good. I'll give you that and I also haven't thought of you as a drooling SB fujoshi and you seem like a better fan of the series than that, anyway. Not that this matters much, though we may see more future GAR characters, but the problem still remains as who knows?

I'm glad we can at least agree that it's a good series. Nothing perfect of course, but it does keep me pretty entertained. Ah good, I sometimes feel out of place for just liking the show without shipping every rival in sight. You're right though, it doesn't matter in the end. I've gone off topic now- but I can't think of many more GAR anime/characters that haven't been listed already haha.

There doesn't seem to be enough anime with balls.
