My favourite show is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood but my favourite main character is Akko from Little Witch Academia (my second favourite show which imo should be a Top 10 show btw)

I am officially declaring for Atsuko “Akko” Kagari as Best Main Character.

How about you guys? (I’m addressing all genders)

Yes (Okabe Rintaoru). Likely because characters are one of the most important factors that lead to me liking a show.

I don't know who my favorite MC is but it's definitely not motoko from ghost in the shell, my favorite anime.
I really enjoy those "helicopter ride" memes

Well, some of my favorite MC characters are Kaiji, Issei, Kazuma, Joseph Joestar, and some of my favorite anime are Ultimate Survivor Kaiji, Highschool DxD season 2 (yes I know I'm trash), Konosuba, and Jojo.

I feel like if the mc was just boring i would be able to get over it and not care too much.But if i actively hate the mc for whatever reason,i am pretty sure i will be having that thought in the back of mind every time the anime shifts the focus back on the mc.Which is why for a show to be my favourite i have to not hate the mc,or at least feel lukewarm about it.

Oof read title wrong, favorite MC, not MCs.

Either way yes my favorite MC is in my favorite show. Whether that be Leouch, Deku, or Taiga, their shows are in my favorites too.

Edward is my favorite MC of all time and FMA: Brothaz in da hood is my favorite animey eva.
Logan Lerman is the love of my life. Someday we'll marry.
Asuna, Emilia and Zelda are the ultimate goddesses of everything that's good and pure.
Zack Fair, Mahiro Fuwa and Edward Elric are the best boys of all time.
Hagane no Renkinjutsushi is the best work of fiction ever recorded in human history.
Yuki Kajiura's music can cure and heal every disease ever known by men. Oblivious is her magnum opus.
Women are the scum of this earth, and I can assure you they're well aware of that.

One is a lie. The other ones are not. DEUS VULT!

Off the top of my head when I think of favorite MC, the names that pop up are Hikigaya Hachiman and Shinichi Kudo (Conan) whose anime I haven't added to my favorites list. I do like the MCs of my favorite anime but they aren't exactly my most favorites.

If this would have been top 2 (or more) favorites, then it would have been a yes.

Since you went with the most favorite franchise with most favorite character, then no.

JoJo is my favorite franchise. Gintoki is my favorite character (Gintama)
After that, Gintama is my second favorite franchise, while peak Joseph Joestar is my second favorite character.

I'm not sure, I never really thought about who my #1 character is, I just have a pool of favorite characters that keeps growing. But Spike is definitely among those chars.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

Oh cool which game? I’ve started watching Granblue Fantasy because there is a Granblue fighting game coming out next year and I want to know the story behind the characters. I saw the game for the first time at London Comic Con in October this year.

Magia Record, some spin-off from Madoka Magica. It's a mobile game with a surprisingly fun story, so having an anime for it will be cool to see the story getting animated, assuming it follows that of the game.

I've heard of Granblue Fantasy, but never actually played it. All I've heard of it is that it's a massive timesink, lol. Then again, that's what mobile games are made to be...

Well, now that I've been tagged, I might as well post here. My favorite anime character is Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z. It's nowhere near my #1 anime (which is FMAB, like you) and Vegeta isn't "the" main character of DBZ (Goku) either, though he's one of the main characters.

It would appear that only one of my top 10 favorite characters is from one of my top 10 favorite anime. However, I still enjoyed all the anime my top 10 favorite characters are from.
I think the reason for this is that if an anime is on my favorites list on my profile, I don't need to specify that one of the characters is one of my favorites. It's kind of already implied that I enjoyed the characters if the anime they are from is in my favorites list.

I know you didn't ask specifically about our lists or anything, it's just that I really haven't put much thought about my favorite characters outside of just picking some for my profile.

Not quite. I think if a media piece is good enough to become a favorite of mine, then the main cast is balanced in a way that I'm hard pressed to have a favorite.

Exception goes for Taiga & Toradora, which is more of a guilty pleasure.

I don't have a single one favorite character, therefore I can't say my 'favorite' is from my favorite show, but out of the less limited pool of my 'most favorite characters,' yes some are, though this shouldn't be too surprising anymore.

Almost in my case. Baccano (which has no legitimate MC) is my favorite anime, but my favorite character is Keima, the mc of The World God Only Knows which happens to be my 2nd favorite anime AND manga (my favorite manga is Pandora Hearts).

Rei and Hinata are my favourite male and female character in all anime respectively (though if manga included the latter no longer holds true) and 3-gatsu is my favourite show, so yes.

No, but she's from my favorite manga.

Regarding anime, my favorite MC is from my sixth-favorite show.

Kinda

If we talk about manga, then yes, Guts and Johnny are also my top 2 in terms of their series.

In anime it differs because I love Saki from Shinsekai Yori, but I am not sure which is my favorite anime nowadays. Also, my favorite characters are usually not the MC but a supporting or secondary.

My favorite anime is Saki, but the MC of Saki, Miyanaga Saki is not even my favorite character in the anime (Hisa and Koromo are my favorites), let alone my favorite MC.

My favorite MCs are Okazaki Tomoya from Clannad, Okabe Rintaro from Steins;Gate, Erin from Kemono no Souja, and Maro Eichiro from Baby Steps.

Tomoya and Rintaro have some of the best development of any MCs I have seen in anime ever.

Erin is absolutely adorable as a child. She sticks to her morals no matter how grave the situation gets, and she has to persevere through so much terrible crap. She is easily one of the most uplifting and inspiring characters in anime.

Ei-chan is another inspiring character. He starts playing tennis at a late age, with little physical ability, but works his ass off in an attempt to become a pro. He learns from his mistakes instead of dwelling on them. He really makes me think that with a little hard work, anything is possible.

The heroine we follow throughout K-On! mostly is Yui Hirasawa and if we don’t include my #1 character (who isn’t from an anime) I guess the answer for the question would be yes.

If, for some reason, you don’t count Yui as the main member we follow at Afterschool Tea Time then my favorite main character would be Koyomi Araragi and sadly, he’s not in K-On!

I do not think so. My favourite series was and is Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, although I do not favour any characters too much, there. I do admire Lordgenome the most, but I would not call him a favourite.
Ah I will Mitsuru from Darling in the FranXX. He is edgy, has edgy hairstyle, is quite passionate and got the most endowed lass in the series. A hero for sure.

Big Yes, the main characters are the ones carrying the story for me therefore I don't like shows with a weak or a boring protagonist, same with shows trying to share the screen time between a group of odd balls

you mean if my favorite anime and fav characters match? if that the case then of course not. they're completely opposites. and i have some MCs on because the rest are like side chara :(

this sounds interesting cuz it seems all characters are average to me, it's my favorite anime because of other reasons. same happens when i choose characters as my favs of all time.
