Re: IGN: Top 25 Anime Characters

I really don't see why people are SURPRISED that Goku is on the list. Granted, he's not my favorite DBZ character (nor is Vegeta), but the fact of the matter is that when it comes to polls like these, they simply look at their status among the general crowd of anime characters and don't take much time to look beyond the protagnoists and/or their vatly superior foils or supporting characters (i.e., if they were gonna put a Naruto character on their, the best choices would be Rock Lee or Shikamaru).

That being said, where the heck is Afro Samurai? He made a better character out of himself in five episodes and less than 20 pieces of dialogue (most of which consisting of "Shut up" towards a sidekick of questionable existence) than any of today's Shonen characters did within their still-running, 200+ episode series and lecture-plagued filler.

Bunshichi Tawara was a pretty good choice IMO though. In all truth, I don't much care for Tenjou Tenge, but Tawara's done his fair share of crazy **** to prove he's pretty much one of, if not the most powerful character to come out of that show, and proving it in damn good ways (most notably, kicking Shin Natsume's *** up and down the playground after Shin left his legs utterly mutilated. It should be on youtube).

Seriously, another thing: How the ♥♥♥♥ no Kiki's Devlery Service, Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away Characters made the list? ♥♥♥♥in' IGN suckin' up to the younger generation of idiots and otakus.
Abso-mother-f'ing-lutely. Classic anime IMO, and is simply complemented further by the quirky yet still badass cast.

Re: IGN: Top 25 Anime Characters

Since when was IGN any sort of authority on anime to the point where we should care what they publish? I go to them for games and games alone, to go for much anything else, I find, would be completely nonsensical as demonstrated by this list.

That one scene is why he is my favorite character in the show, also he can be funny at times and pretty level headed.

Ugh...no, just no. There are some characters that do merit a place on the list (Shinji, Rei, Vash...), but most of them are just plain and shallow(Goku, Pikachu, Ichigo...)

How come there's only one Hayao Miyazaki character on the list?
Where are the Satoshi Kon characters?
Where's Wolfwood, Jiro/Kikaider, J, Lain, and so many others?

This list seems to have been taken out of some Toonami or Animax random poll.
