DISCLAIMER: The following sections may contain spoilers-READ UNDER YOUR OWN RISK: My Anime History
-Current age: 24
-Age you began watching anime: 7
-First anime series: Tekkaman Blade and Slayers / Death Note knowing it was anime.
-Age you began streaming/downloading anime: 20
-First streamed/downloaded anime: Darker Than Black
-Do you see yourself watching anime 10 years from now?: I don't think I'd ever get tired of anime.
I would like to point out that they are sorted by order and gender, first male, first female, second male, second female, and so on. 1- Hei/BK-201 (Darker Than Black): Quite a character, despite being a contractor he is one of the few who is capable of showing emotions, skilled in fight, and taciturn personality. i like this type of character a lot. Plus, he is such a badass.
2- Shigure Asa (Shuffle!): She is quite controversial since a lot of people doesn't like her, but I like her because she is the only character who steps away of the obvious choices and classical heroines in the harem genre, meaning: air-headed, innocent, lolicon, or not blood related sister (at least one of them busty) character. She is nothing like the heroines in other harem animes (not including TWGOK).
3- Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop): He is pretty much like Hei, but without the powers and a deeper background, his last scene with Julia is just the mind blowing thing who sets the viewer to the end.
4-Akane Tsunemori (PsychoPass): She is not an specially deep character, and for a yet unknown reason every time she appears, makes me frown. But there are some pretty decent features that i like of her, like her open and honest personality, and how she takes her works so seriously. Plus she has some nice scenes throughout the series.
5- Katsuragi Keima (The World God Only Knows): For the beginning the anime breaks any standard heroine in harems animes, and he is such a player, thin, with glasses!... no one can expect that much from a player, despite this he has conquered (and re-conquered) a lot of girls so far. The guys with glasses also have rights!!
6- Shizuku Mizutani (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun): In romance anime, we are used to find some archetypical characters in almost every single show. Fortunately, Mizutani is not one of them, while she focus only in studying and basically doesn't give a damn about anyone else, she grows to be a character that actually worries about the people around her, and is SO naive when it comes to love, is just endearing.
7- Senji "Crow" Kiyomasa (Deadman wonderland): One of the most powerful Deadmans in the series, he bends his abilities to slice anyone and anything, and his fear to free clothed women is hilarious.
8- Misaki Mei (Another): I don't really know if is something wrong with me, but this girl, with the eye patch and the creepy eye seems extremely cute. So soft that you think she could break if she falls. Maybe plain, true, any how this girl awakes my deepest paternal feelings.
9- Xerxex Break "The Mad Hatter" (Pandora Hearts): I always liked the "Alice in wonderland" series, in any adaptation, in every single media, the mad hatter always appears to be one of the main characters. This particular version of the mad hatters presents himself as a Chain who can negate the powers of every other chain. Just awesome.
10- Celty Sturluson "The black Rider" (Duarara!!!): This list it's not completed without one character of Durarara (or Baccano) and She is my choice. why? Basically because is a woman without head and still is extremely sexy.
Jokes aside, she is really amazing as a character, very well developed, and... well... she doesn't need a presentation.
Other characters that didn't make it to the top 10
11- The Kotenbu Club, from Hyôka
This couple of couples didn't make it to the top then because i couldn't decide just one of them to place in the list, and it wouldn't be fair just to lace one of them... or all of them. But each character is SO unique and endearing that, if you have watched the series, they don't need any presentation.
12- Team 5D's from Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's
As the aforementioned case, i couldn't decide just one to place on the list [...] But their duels, every single duel they had in the series was amazing (thought I do have a special feeling for the Jack vs Carly duel, it wasn't enough for him to make it into the list)
13- The Cultural Research Club, from Kokoro Connect
Same case as before, this series stands alone by its perfect execution and endearing characters.
14- Ai Nanasaki, from Amagami SS (and Amagami SS+)
As Asa shigure is my preferred sempai, Ai is my preferred Kouhai, the perfect girl, younger, smart, mature, and damn she is cute when she propose to.
15- Gourry Gabiev and Rina Inverse, from Slayers
The best couple I’ve ever seen in an action anime, despite they are not properly introduced as a couple (except from near the end of "TRY") they are the perfect match of clumsiness, skilled, eat-a-lot characters (classical gag in action anime), and the perfect match when it comes to real battles.
16- Yurippe, from Angel Beats and Haruhi Zuzumiya, from... Haruhi Suzumiya's series
Those girls are so charismatic, and yet so damn crazy (each one in its very own way) that I can´t really decide who to place in this number.
Meaning: Yuripe leads a rebellion against the disappearance/soul transcendence of the people in that place they are used to call "Heaven" but considering what happened to her in life, who can blame her? Independent, a natural leader, and a perfect companion... but she is so skilled with weapons that it scares me a little.
On the other Hand: Haruhi leads (without knowing) a club which had a lot of estrange people, and... well... she is basically the one that creates and rules that world they are into (again, without knowing) but she is so damn crazy that just scares the hell out of me... that's why she didn't make it to the top 10, but is still a character I like.
