So this question probaby exists somewhere on this site already..but i reeeally wanted to post it.

So "Oshimen" is a term used in japan by fans of members of idol groups (AKB48, Morning Musume etc.) it basically means "number one" so someone who has an oshimen ranks that person as there overall favorite out of some or all other members of said group.

So anime wise, who's YOUR Oshimen...who's YOUR #1 ride or die go to character of AAALL time (or right now?)

I have so many sooo i couldn't tell you mine

Hmmm actually in all of the times I've been a member of Crunchyroll, I believe this is the first time I've seen a topic ask about an Anime Oshimen.

I'm sorry to say though that I won't be participate in your discussion because I just don't feel that it something I can answer for reasons that feel strange to me because one reason is when I think of "Oshimen", I think of this definition from MELOS no Michi:

From 'oshiteru member' which literally translates to 'the member you want to push', generally it means your most favorite member whom you will always be supporting.
But good luck, and I hope you're thread is successful Sushianimegeisha94

It changes so frequently now based on which shows I've watched recently and stuff, but thinking back...

First ever was probably Sailor Mercury.

I was the nerdy member among my friends, so I identified with her most, and that was the first anime I could say I was a fan of. I grew up loving transforming super teams, whether they were scouts, rangers, or turtles (well, they only transformed once, but still.) I think that's why I like Kill la Kill so much, too. It's everything I loved about Sailor Moon/Power Rangers/etc. as a kid, suited to my now adult tastes.

But moving on from 6-7, Vegeta was my guy for years. My friend and I had this ongoing argument about whether Goku or Vegeta was better, and we still dust it off every now and then. So Vegeta was probably my "Oshimen" the longest...but he isn't anymore.

Going back to Kill la Kill, Ryuko and/or Satsuki are top contenders for the spot, though I haven't thought about it enough to say for sure. As far as characters from the big, popular anime that I've spent years of my life watching, Hisoka from HxH, Sanji from One Piece, and Kenpachi from Bleach are up there, too.

Hm... There are definitely a lot to choose from. But even if you asked me to pick a favourite Ninja Turtle out of just four characters that I've known for 20 years, I'd probably give you a different answer every time
I'll just answer Ryuko for now and go to bed.

You can't really apply Oshimen to anime because generally people will have lots of favorite characters in anime. You can have many Oshimen idols too but from different groups so it's only one Oshimen per idol group you can't keep changing favorites or have more than one you like because it's not the same thing. There are idol fans who like more than one person or like whole groups but those are different from the Oshimen wota.

Anime being one group unless you only love one character forever above all overs then you can't have an Oshimen XD.

Buuut for the sake of discussion one anime character i really love and go out my way to collect goods and figures/dolls anywhere i can get them is Souseiseki from Rozen Maiden maybe i'm just a sucker for the masochist type who likes to use the word "master" xD

I wuv my Izaya.



I would say Kaneki, but the anime just came out and I like the anime Izaya more than the current anime Kaneki, so he'll just be my manga Oshimen for now. xP
