Arguably I'd say Kanon 2006 has the best cast. It's very hard not to sympathise with any of them with their situations.

If we're talking full cast of characters, I would say Pandora Hearts in a heartbeat. Every single character is wonderfully multifaceted.

After that, I'll go with Angel Beats, which had a very fun, likeable set of characters.

Baccano! and Darker than Black are probably at the top for me.
There's also Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, Ouran, and Kuroshitsuji for awesome casts.

ok im going completly against the topic but FFXIII has the bets cast of charecters for any thing ive palyed, their so well developed and actually seem human with flaws, they actually make mistakes and they have the balls enough to apolgise wimmediatly instead of drawing it out like a plot point

One Piece! No competition. Maybe when I've actually seen a decent number of anime I'll change my mind, but I doubt it.

La Cordo d'oro. Sure there were some mary-sues, but the whole anime and manga was crafted beautifully and the characters really grew on me.

And the humorous Ouran high school host club of course <3

Tenjou Tenge actually has a vast range of good, interesting, well balanced characters...
The author has taken a mature aproach by not trying to make the audience like the 'good guys' and disslike the 'bad guys'; there is always a scenario were the 'good' characters you may be rooting for (as people are often automatically drawn the the mains) are in the wrong, whilst the 'bad' characters can make wise, sensible decisions.

Just like to say that i didn't mention these because of my opinion on the particular shows, e.g Not a fan of bleach, but cant deny that there are huge collection of good characters.

to me, an anime that supports a LARGE to MASSIVE cast and still manages to keep them unique, entertaining, and memorable would qualify as highly impressive. while not necessarily the "best", it does leave an everlasting impression, to say the least.

some examples would be:
- Durarara!!
- Code Geass
- FMA: Brotherhood
- Gintama
- School Rumble
- Detective Conan
- Baccano!
- Soul Eater
- Lucky ☆ Star
- Azumanga Daioh
- Prince of Tennis

Bleach, Fairy Tail, One Piece, and Naruto are givens

One Piece has the best cast and the biggest variety including Giants, mermaids, human/animals, cyborgs, and sky people.

Easily there two. Especially Baccano!
Though the Aria series, Yuru Yuri and FMA: Brotherhood also have amazing casts.

Aria and Black Lagoon have memorable characters although there is no such thing as "best" characters.

its a difficult question to answer, depending on what your tastes are but

Black Lagoon - Great group of dark characters
School Rumble - someone said it best earlier but who wouldn't want to be in this class
Wagneria! or Working! - hilarious cast of misfits and weirdos
Full Metal Panic
Code Geass
Fairy Tail
the list can go on
