10: Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya - Sword Art Online - 17535 votes
The boy hero who suffers from the horrible fate of being surrounded by beautiful women who all like him. He also rules at video games, and is given the honorable nickname Beta Tester Cheater, or "Beater".
9: Naruto Uzamaki - Naruto - 17622 votes
Naruto is an extremely popular character, despite the fact that his attire suggests he may be the worst ninja ever. What smart ninja, whose main job description is to be stealth, would wear a bright orange jumpsuit to work?
8: Zoro Roronoa - One Piece - 18943 votes, me included!
The straw hat pirate who decided that duel-wielding swords weren't enough, so he stuck a third sword in his mouth. Eat your heart out Kirito!
7: Sakata Gintoki - Gintama - 20186 votes
The silver-haired samurai whose fingers spend more time up his own nose than on his sword. He was once a shounen anime protagonist, but he ultimately lost and now spends his days procrastinating.
6: Okabe "Okarin" Rintarou - Steins;Gate - 21606 votes
The Organisation are after me. I can't stay on the phone much longer. My lab coat has stains from when I spilled Doctor Pepper all over it. This must all be the will of Steins;Gate. Signing off. El Psy Congroo.
5: Light Yagami - Death Note - 24111 votes
Called "Kira" online by people who didn't know how to spell "Killer" correctly, Light Yagami overcame his unusual name to become a genius student bent on changing the world.
4: Edward Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist - 24850 votes
With Edward as the main protagonist, rather than his "fully-armoured" brother Alphonse, the title seems a bit misleading. But I guess naming the anime "Partly Metal Alchemist" wasn't nearly as cool.
3: Monkey D Luffy - One Piece - 25901 votes
With his gummy arms, boyish grin, and infectious positive attitude, it's easy to see why so many people like Monkey D Luffy, even if after over 700 episodes, we're still not entirely sure what the D is supposed to stand for.
2: L Lawliet - Death Note - 37838 votes
A hunched over figure with the tan of a vampire, wearing nothing more than a plain white t-shirt and pair of jeans... At the very least, what L gave us was the world's easiest character to cosplay.
1: Lelouch Lamperouge - Code Geass 46434 votes!
Your winner is the man of many names―Lelouch Lamperouge, the fallen prince of the Britannian Empire! Casting aside his surname to become Zero, he is the hero of the underclass... and who doesn't love a noble hero? It will take someone quite special to knock him off his high perch.
Okay, you did it again, tho lelouch indeed is amazing.
