Being a huge anime fan/otaku myself I know that this is probably the most difficult question a fan could be asked, BUT I ASKED IT YO! So who is the best of the best when it comes to anime characters!? There's just so many anime characters out there now between all the mangas, animes, and anime video games being released every day, but everyone has a favorite! So first, I'll tell you my favorite anime character EVER and WHY I love her so much. (Cause you gotta have a reason why they're so special to you!) and then afterwords please comment with your favorite anime character!!! I'd love to see who's popular these days with the fans. But anyways, if you don't already know, here's my favorite:
(This explanation includes a few Attack on Titan manga and anime spoilers so read at your own risk
The strong, misunderstood, and beautiful Annie Leonhardt from the anime/manga series Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin. Annie, to me, is that perfectly developed character that has so many amazing qualities that there must be at least one thing that appeals to you about her. Even though she can be seen as a "bad guy", Annie has many layers to her that have to be examined before judging her as such. Annie is quiet, and certainly doesn't think highly of herself as she considers herself weak, but she is much stronger than she thinks she is. She is almost always shown to be somewhat sad, or troubled, and this all coincides with her inevitable and inescapable duty she has been given to help with the Titan Trio's (Reiner, Bertholdt, and her) mysterious endeavors to destroy the walls, get Eren,
basically fuck up the last of the human race
, ect... but Annie isn't a bad person, she was not the one to choose to take part in this, and she certainly isn't a killer by choice. The poor girl breaks down in tears (once in her Titan form and another before she crystallized herself) multiple times, which may be why she considers herself weak, but she is only doing this for that unknown source which still hasn't been revealed. (Besides for that one flashback to her father) With her well developed personality aside, another attractive quality about her is of course her physical design. Annie, in my eyes, is a totally beautiful character. Both her Titan form and human form are gorgeous in my eyes. I think her little hoodie she wears under her uniform is absolutely adorable and unique compared to what all the other characters wear, (You'd be surprised just look their undershirts almost all look the same besides for hers) and her hair is tied up beautifully, of course complemented finely by her icy blue eyes, which show off her character perfectly. Her Titan form's colors are awesome as well with the reds and pinks mixing wonderfully with her again, icy blue eyes and light blonde hair. So both apperance wise and personality/backstory wise my little Annie takes the cake with me. And to go beyond the character herself I actually had the opportunity to meet her English dub voice actress first hand at a convention last summer, and she was a super great person! Not only did I get her autograph, TWICE, I had the opportunity to have a good 5 minute conversation with her as well!! (Aside from that I also met Jean and Petra's voice actors too their pretty cool! And yeah I know the dub kinda sucks sometimes but whatever you gotta admit it's still cool!)
So after that ridiculous essay I just threw at you about my crazy obsession with Annie, who's your favorite anime character of ALL TIME? From ANY anime! And WHY!!!???? Let me know in the comments I can't wait to here!!
