Light is officially out of top 5 most popular character

F for Light, Light was a great villian. I'm also slightly mad that L is also overtaken by Levi but I guess that was inevitable

I'm not trusting most popular character on MAL from now on

But who the fuck is this Roronoa Zoro who came in Top 5?

Watch it so you will understand but one piece just get better at ep 20 though and the fact that two of the one piece character is in top 5 even though deat note or aot etc etc has more watchers in it...... that just show how likable the characters are in one piece but i think the reason why it has lots of fav is because of how the author make this lot of iconic scenes of one piece just make them tripled likeable..... hope that explains

Light is not a villain and it's normal for new characters to be above him, Death Note aired in 2007 and the manga is long gone. You don't see me angry that Amuro Ray is not top 5

Suck it up, princess. Just about all the characters were being boosted by bot accounts, and now your precious Light has been knocked down thanks to those bots.

The statistics are more reliable now than they were before, so why trust the stats before the fix?

Nothing...really, literally nothing happened with him.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation

rorona zoro is an animated version of Johncena. Johncena is very popular so it's no denying that why zoro is this popular.
"I think I wanted to attack something. Like betraying people or hurting people. And, well, it's not exactly nice, but hurting the readers too... In all honestly, I feel that's what I really wanted to do. For me, as a reader, when I think, "this manga will remain in my heart," it means, for example, it phenomenally hurt me: It's those kinds of experiences I'm after." - Pajime Hisayama (My favourite hurting author).

I didn't mean that I trusted it before the fix, It was never trusted actually, I think that they still didn't remove a huge amount of bots that boosted Eren and Levi during AOT Final season. Anyway Light is still hella more popular and compelling compared to Luffy and Zoro and it's a fact. One Piece character are there because it's going for so long and It's huge fanbase in Western media

LMAO, you haven't even seen One Piece, do you even have the right to criticize or base assumptions on what you haven't seen yet?

Luffy & Zoro have more character development than all the Death Note characters combined lol.

That's just your opinion though, It is not written on any stone. Death Note and One Piece are two completely different genres of Anime and can't be compared, including the characters of their Anime. It's pretty idiotic of you to compare them. I would have said given some more argument if you made a fair comparison

Lol you were the one who compared them in the first place. At least _cjessop19_ has watched both Death Note and One Piece so he can make a fair comparison between the two (in which I agree btw) unlike you.

Plus "most popular" doesn't mean "best", so who cares? I really don't understand why people make such a fuss about what characters other people add to their "favorites" list.

He's not. If you're implying Death Note is more popular and mainstream than One Piece you're flat out wrong. One Piece is probably the best seller worldwide since 20+ years.

The ranking was never about popular characters it was about favourites so defenitely others would be higher than the normal ones

You need to get out of your bubble and simply accept the fact that your favorite characters aren't as popular as you thought.

IDK why you are saying "2 months of mainstream hype"
Death Note manga was in production from 2003-2006, Anime was in production from 2006-2008 (including Relight)
That's total of 6 years
There was also decent Japanese live action film based on Death Note which aired during late 2000s
Death Note Manga at it's time had huge fanbase for a very long time

No I don't need to accept that. Remember that MyAnimelist isn't the only IMDb of Anime, there are tons of other websites
But yeah, Light might not be that popular on MyAnimelist

If you expect your most favorited characters to be the majority's most favorite characters, You're gonna be disappointed.

Also, I dunno why you're making a big deal out of MAL rankings, I recommend not taking them seriously since many of the placements are pretty whack
I don't speak English that much, So please cut me some slack

Keep coping. Go to fringe websites to justify your incorrect opinion because you're bothered by the reality of something.

But i'll level with you. You're very young and still very new to anime, you shouldn't talk down things that are from a medium you apparently are so passionate about and might even enjoy yourself, simply because of hurt feelings. You're poisoning the well that is your clear and open minded framework, you're creating bias for something you haven't even watched yet have such concrete judgements and feelings on. You might even go and watch One Piece now just to hate on it or the character you have such a problem with, instead of enjoying something you might actually like.

There is more to anime than Death Note, you'll do better to understand that.

Zoro was always very popular in the one piece fandom, and one piece has a big fandom, and since one piece is still ongoing, there's still more to see for him
