I like both, but anti-heros are more interesting imo.

I've always thought that anti-heros are most of the time more interesting and less 2 dimensional than your average hero.

Anti-heros are the best just because they can do good and help others, but when needed they will get down nitty gritty and kill the bad guy instead of just hoping they reform themselves.

I would like to select the anti-hero, however they are always a hit or miss for me. If done incorrectly, a story focused around an anti-hero could potentially seem pretentious. On the other hand, I find that I never dislike a heroic story.

It depends on the character. Anti-heroes are usually more complex and fascinating characters than the regular heroes, and following their stories is always fun. My favorite anti-hero of all time is Guts from Berserk, to me he's the perfect representation of what an anti-hero is, a tragic character that doesn't hesitate to kill, but cares for the people that stick with him.

Heroes can be just as charismatic if not more than the anti-heroes, when their stories are done right. Unless it's made as a joke like with One Punch Man, stories about over powered characters as the main hero tend to be boring because of the lack of tension, but when you have heroes as Deku from My Hero Academia and Mob from Mob Psycho 100 who actually struggle through their journey, it's so easy to root for the hero that the story becomes very fun to watch.

I'd have to say anti-hero. They on the whole tend to be better written and have a depth to them many classic heroes lack. The knight in shining armour is to me a far less likeable character then a normal man at arms. Spike from Cowboy Bebop is a far more enjoyable character to follow then say Son Goku from Dragonball and all it's series.
