As the title say, do you have a favorite character in an anime you don’t love, not necessarily hate it but it’s not your favorite.

For example, I love Jellal from Fairy Tail, one of my favorite anime characters. He’s the reason I watched FT, I’m even reading the new manga just to see more of him. I don’t hate FT but neither I love it, I see a lot of problems with it, like winning impossible battles because of the power of friendship and lots of unnecessary fan service.

I gotta say Zero Two. Besides her waifu material, she's an overall fun character with an interesting backstory.

Mariko from Elfen Lied. She might have been out of her mind psychotic, but I found her to be a sympathetic villain.

Nagato from Haruhi Series, i don't like emotionless girl at all but in that show sadly i have to pick her because she is the least insufferable character LOL

I agree about Jellal. I think Fairy Tail is pretty much garbage, but Jellal is still a cool character

bekki sensei from nourin

her personality
she plays the fallen out of favor teacher role too damn well

yakumo from school rumble

my type of girl
perfect waifu material

ayame from bento

like her design and her lines

ninth from mirai nikki

she's pretty hot and i like her sassiness

moffle from amagi brilliant park

i love mascots and he's the perfect product of magical realism

sebas from overlord

probably my favorite character from a show that i dislike
he's the most well written character in the series imo
thoroughly having his moral personality established and developed over the course

I'm not a big fan of Rurouni Kenshin overall, but Hajime Saito's such an awesome badass and he was easily the best part of the show for me.

Also Shuu Tsukiyama from Tokyo Ghoul 'cause he's hilarious. His Engrish never fails to crack me up.

I have a complicated love-hate relationship with HxH, but Hisoka is definitely one of my favourites. His charm is boundless.

Rurumo from Majimoji Rurumo

Katou from Saekano

both cases being the one of few good things from these anime (or so i've personally found)

Oreimo wasn't all completely garbage, but utterly unworthy of Ruri/Kuroneko

I really, really hated Mirai Nikki but the one thing that stopped me from dropping it was Minene Uruyuu, the purple-haired terrorist bomber girl. She was the only character in that show I thought was fun to watch, so I stuck around for her.

Lucy from Elfen Lied, she's a cool character with an interesting backstory, but the other main characters kinda killed it for me.

Saeko Busujima from Highschool of the Dead.

I think at this point there is nobody who doesn't know this anime. It was so bad...Besides having a nice setup - that of a world overrun by zombies - the execution was just awful. It's basically a mix of borderline hentai + gore. It could have been a masterpiece if done right but... oh well.

At any rate, Saeko was this anime's only saving grace.


I could also say the same about Uchiha Madara and the last arc of Naruto Shippuden. The 4th Ninja War was complete garbage compared with the rest of the series but Uchiha Madara was faken brilliant

Ban from 7DS. Best character by far, Meliodas is a terrible character in comparison.

I mean HOTD was a pretty fun show. Had it focused on actual serious situations it would’ve been a lot better.

Crona from Soul Eater. I do like Soul Eater, but it's definitely not the best nor is it one of my favorites. But Crona is one of my favorite characters of all time.

Kyon and Yuki Nagato from the Haruhi series. Haruhi herself annoyed me to no end, and it's only because of those 2 that I continued watching the entire show and the boring as hell movie.

Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion. I didn't hate the show but the ending (no matter which one) was so darn confusing. Also, I hated Shinji for being a big coward, Gendo for being a psychotic nut, Misato for not keeping her legs closed... I pretty much didn't like anyone else in that entire show. The only close second was Rei and, while she was sweet, the whole clone thing just creeped me out. I know, Asuka still has her issues (yes, lots of them) but overall I feel like she is a good example of a strong and determined young lady. Simply put, Asuka is literally the only reason I still stay interested in the Evangelion franchise.

Ayase and Sieger and also Aina from Z/X Ignitition were pretty good, but I didn't like the series too much. Although they made me enjoy it more.
Ken from Digimon 02 did that as well.

Soul Eater and Noragami are pretty mediocre shows imo, but Death the Kid and Yato are lovable idiots.

Nisekoi was an absolute torture to watch at times but the thing that kept me watching at least until the end of the first season was some of the characters that were quite loveable especially onodera and tsugumi

I personally do not like Shinmai Maou No Testament much at all. I do however quite like Yahiro Takigawa (a.k.a Lars) as a character. I think he's cool, cunning, and overall fun to watch.

I don't like BNHA, but for some unknown reason I really like Eijiro Kirishima, not really sure way, maybe his character design or personality. I even read some fanfiction about him 🤷‍♀️

Shizuo and celty from durarara are pretty cool even though the show is a steaming pile of garbage.

Gordon Agrippa from Black Clover. I find nearly every single character so annoyingly two-dimensional in that show. While I can certainly admit Gordon is far from a prime example of multi-dimensional characterization, he has a very unique and interesting design/conceptualization in my opinion. He's such a stand out from everyone else in that show. Love him to death.

Love-pon from mayoiga, the anime is not that good but she is great, her story is decent enough for a tragic anine that mayoiga wanted to be,and she's cute when she says: execute!

beyond the main focus, I don't think
