8. Kurimu Sakurano, Seitokai no Ichizon
7. Horo, Spice and Wolf
6. Nanoha Takamichi, Nanoha

4. Katsura Hinagiku, Hayate no Gotoku
3. Yui Hirasawa, K-On
2. Fate Testarossa, Nanoha
1. Mio Akiyama, K-ON

The difference is laughable. So is the list.
Probably this generation like those moeblobs or something, whatever that is. I don't mind this two though. Horo, is not only beautiful, she is wise as well. Playful, trustworthy, strong, fragile...can't even list them all.

Nanoha is well....Nanoha =/

On a side note, people should really stop putting Mio or Yui at the top. ~_~

You should never post anything concerning anime ever again.

That's just... I could see some of those, but they don't fit the overall character profile that this list was going by.

thanks for posting that list, it was nice to see what some of the older generation put forth as being the best. I'm always disheartened by the new generations list making.

I've never seen Vampire Hunter D so I can't argue about him either way, but the other 3 I have to agree with them being on the list based on IGN's criteria.

Pikachu is a household name world wide, you can go almost anywhere in the world and say, "Pikachu" and people will instantly know what you're talking about, thats reason enough for the little yellow fluffball to be on the list.

Vegata, like IGN said, he is the original unmitigated bastard, a character archtype that has been copied over and over again for the last 20 some years. Thats a good enough reason for me to have him in the top 25.

L was more important to Death Note than Light was, you can't remove L from the list without kicking Light to curb with him. L's cat and mouse game with Light is what made the show great and Death Note turned into an unwatchable crapfest the very next episode after L's death.

As awesome as Belldandy is, she's not the stand out character of the series, Keiichi is, the man who proves nice guys really can finish first.

As for Optimus Prime, only the original is really worth mentioning and the original was not an anime. It was created, written, directed, and produced by Americans. The original Takara toys didn't even have names, let alone personalities or backstories. Thats why I hate it when people say Transformers are Japanese, because they're not, all Takara did was create a line of random objects that for no particular reason could change into robots. It was Hasbro that turned that idea into a massive franchise thats lasted 28 years and counting.

I don't agree with pikachu because it's about the greatest characters, not what name is most widely known. Name recognition factors in, but that's all piks has. If anything, it should be at the bottom of the list. Him and Shinji can cuddle together.

Vegeta and L are essential, but I see them both more in a top 50. Especially with L. I'm on board with the notion that he's required to make Light what he is, and vice versa, but there's too many great characters to include tag teams. It kinda would be like saying if Usagi is on the list, then the other senshin have to be included because she'd have accomplished nothing if not for the other sailor scouts.

I marginally agree that Belldandy should be on the list. She's more widely known than virtually any other lead female in the romance genre. She's a character that's been copied endlessly as well.

I won't get into a pi@@ing contest... but without Takara toys there would be no Transformers. But yes you're right, Transformers is American... I do stand corrected on that.

Keiichi... hmmm perhaps.

I like your views though... thank you.

The thing with D was it had a huge cult status in the States, I don't think Vampire Hunter D was as popular in Japan.

But anyways I would have easily put Kenshiro in the top 10 and maybe top 5.

Worst list of all, Goku being on top? Haruhi being listed fairly low, Ichigo being on the list even though he's boring, I think the Top ranks should be reserved for characters we consider cool and aspire to, possibly like Vash the Stampede.

IGN: "Our criteria for selection involved a little bit of everything – each character's lasting fame, the impact they had on the medium and their particular genre at the time, the depth and quality of their realization on screen, and of course, a little bit of personal taste. "

Pikachu is well within IGN's set criteria for their list.

and LOL@ thinking IGN is going to consider characters from anime that didn't even make it onto American shelves just because those anime came out the same year IGN's list did. IGN mostly went with iconic characters and not just the characters of the week.

I agree, it is all about generation of viewers.
There are so many epic series with epic characters, it is hard to make a list that will please every one.

Don't ask me for reup. I you want ost or jmusic before it even hit the shelves, you would have to find my website. just google for want you are looking for and add download at the end of your search. I can't post the name of my website, I have been banned 1 week already b/c I linked to it once. I won't be active in the forums anymore since it became a playground for wannabees.

They lack a lot of good characters. The entire cast of Beelzebub and Gintama could wipe the floor with this list.

I can make a much better list of oldschool anime characters. The fact that naruto made the list and ranma didn't already tells me these "adults" are utter fucktards.
