How well can you remember character names of the Anime you watched?

I personally have a hard time remembering many main character's name and I haven't even watched that many Anime.
For some Anime I can't remember name of even one character.
And for some Anime, for example Naruto, I can remember names of almost any character, even quite minor characters.
What about other things? Can you remember the story of all the Anime you watched? What about openings and endings? Would you from which Anime each one is, if you heard them?

If i really liked the anime i can rememeber their names even after years of having seen it, however if i didn't really care for/like the anime and it's been a while or it's an anime from my childhood i might not remember most if any of their names.

I can pretty much remember 85% or more, I think. That includes MCs and important supporting characters, and maybe some supports who show up more than once.
If it's a ecchi, with girls only, or a short anime, or an ecchi harem, too bad for them.
Oh, stuff like "Kiss-shot Orion Heart Underblade" are pretty easy to remember.
Depends. I can remember short/"western sounding" names easily, but some of the 5 syllable Japanese names screw me up.
I can remember western ones if they're important characters, but I always remember the Jap. ones. That's kinda because of my super abnormal hate of American films, cartoons, etc.

I can remember most names just fine. Especially if they gave me lasting impression, good or bad.
Like, I've watched School Days ages ago but I still remember the three MC full name lol. This anime is just simply unforgettable. In both good and bad way haha.

Illyricus said:This. Sometimes I actively review names as part of my normal pondering a show.
I think I can remember more or less well the names of relevant and side characters from my favourite shows, with a few other exceptions.
Haruka Amami, Miki Hoshii, Chihaya Kisaragi, Azusa Miura, Ami Futami, Mami Futami, Takane Shijou, Hibiki Ganaha, Yukiho Hagiiwara, Makoto Kikuchi, Yayoi Takatsuki, Iori Minase, and Ritsuko Akizuki. Also the secretary whose name I forget. And of course, Producer-san. And so on.
Gil, Druaga. Jil, Ahmey, Kaaya, Melt, Coopa. Neeba, Fatima (or Fatina?), Utu, Kally. Kelb, Ethana. Kai, Succubus. Pazuzu, and the Coffin Knights (one of whom is named Mite the Fool). Henaro. And that one army guy who stayed behind. The Golden Knights. Lady Amina. The two Sumerians whose names I forgot. Ziusudra's joke evaluation machine. And so on.
Éclair and Lumière. Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Viola and Cesario. Dextera and Sinistra. Alv and Dvergr. A-ou and Un-ou. Eclipse. Armbrust and Pfeilspitze (who goes by a certain other name). Vendredi. Bonita(?) and Liquiy (Cole?). Chevalier d'Autriche. The GOTT (Galactic Organization of Trade and Tariffs) and the GU (Galactic Union). And so on.
Hikaru Shidou, Umi Ryuuzaki, Fuu Shidou. Clef, Presea. Alcyone, Ascot, Lafarga. Emeraude. Zagato. Mokona.
In general, I think I remember enough of most of the things I've watched, to be able to have an impression of them when they're mentioned again. In some cases I might only be able to bring up a few scenes on my own, but with some prompting I can remember even more. There are a few shows that didn't leave much of an impression, for which I've mostly forgotten them, but oh well.

I remember well the names of Anime characters that left a lasting impression, or those from stories that I enjoyed.
For example, Ousawa Akatsuki , Issei Hyoudou, Makabe Masamune, Izayoi Sakamaki, Adagaki Aki, Fujinomiya Neko, Rias Gremory, Nomura Fudou, Onigawara Rin and many others.....
I am someone that would like to watch a Harem Anime with 2 male leads that each gets their own harem company of girls from the main cast. For example, 1st male lead gets a company of 4 girls and 2nd male lead gets 2-3 girls etc.

If the character has an attitude, bad or good but entertaining or the character has a great voice and/or looks then I tend to remember them well regardless if their background is not very well written or has a very common story behind them.
Take Takumi Ichinose from NANA as an example. He was a high school kid with talent and ambition that grew up in a slightly messed up family. Not the most unique or original background but he's got that looks, attitude and was voiced very well by Morikawa Toshiyuki so its impossible for me to forget such a character. Heck, even his name is not unique at all yet he is a character that is hard not to remember.
