fuck you and your damn waifus. The list is comprised of males mostly anyways. (Because it's easier to make well written male characters) So lets discuss the actual listings.
>>
>>101549916
>The actual listings

IGN is full of fucking plebs who think Goku is one of the most well written characters of all time.

Fucking morons.
>>
>So much casualshit
>Asuka
>Shinji #1
>No Yusuke
I could go on but IGN shit taste as usual.
>>
>>101549749
Half of the list is pretty solid and the other half is obviously pandering to their fanbase,

Putting Shinji at number one is a surprise but I can get behind it.

Bad Choices:
Afro
Haruhi
Vash
L
Kakashi (wtf)
Vegeta
Light
Goku (I'll allow it though)
>>
Report and move along.
>>
>shinji number 1
evangelion confirmed for greatest anime ever
>>
>>101550024
Seeing Johan on it made my day. I would of figured IGN wouldn't have enough taste to have watched Monster.
>>
>>101550115
Monster is pretty popular in the west. Most of my normal friends have seen it.
>>
>Allucard
>anything other than a bad joke
>>
Go advertise somewhere else.
>>
>>101550163
Really? I don't hear much about it outside of /a/.
>>
Lelouch Lamperouge should have been higher up on the list imo.
>>
>>101550211
Yeah, it was on Netflix for a while and the dub is actually really good. A lot of normies watched it that way.

Del Taco is even going to adapt it for HBO.
>>
>List of top 25 most popular anymays
I don't remember when articles meant something

And all is all right in the world.
>>
>>101550291
>Lamperouge
>imo

Tell me at least 6 memorable things of Code Geass. Stop advertising IGN.
>>
>>101550298
Wait it even had a dub? Fuck I must of missed something big. I know about the adaptation on HBO, and my only worry is who the fuck could play Johan.
>>
>no toph beifong
what kind of chinese cartoon list is this?
>>
I only made it to Afro before saying "this is fucking gay" earlier today but now reading the full list it wasn't as bad as I expected.

And yes Shinji was lolz.
>>
That list is so casual it doesn't even reach entry level.
Seriously, if it was an entry level list, you'd probably have some SHAFT, a Steins;Gate character or two, and someone from Sword Art Online. Maybe a character from Attack on Titan as well.

IGN's list is basically the normal-tier.
>>
>>101550392
Not event that guy

Jibun Wo
Kill all Japanese
Lulu's death
Spinzaku
Lulu vs Suzaku
The death of Shirley
>>

Gotta be top-tier to get on such an Elite-list, ya know.
>>
>>101550392
I can't just mention 6 things, the entire series was good, very few filler episodes and a dramatic story line the whole way throughout the series.
>>
I'm surprised Lain's on there. I almost though it was improving until Goku showed up.
>>
>>101550392
1. Spinzaku
2. The chess debacle
3. Jibun Wo
4. Euphemia Killing Filthy Elevens
5. Emperor Missile
6. Lelouche and C.C. get a Spice and Wolf ending
>>
>>101550564
That's not my point. I posted that because he obviously never watched Code Geass / Lurked /a/ for at least 30 seconds.
>>
>>101550564
>Not Rolo's death
Bros before hoes. Shirley's wasn't even sad, just Lelouch's reaction to it.
>>
>>101550637

They probably throw shit like Lain, FLCL, and NausicaƤ on there so they can say SEE WE WATCH GOOD ANIME TOO NOT JUST SUPER POPULAR TRIPE SHIT
>>
>>101550637
Lain is babby's first DEEPshit
>>
>>101550735
Irrelevant It's still better than most of the rest of that list, and Lain's a good character.
>>
>>101549749
I'm glad she wasn't there.
>>
They are almost all from mainstream anime. Not that they are all bad characters, and Lain was a nice surprise, but really they seemed to have been picked from a pretty narrow selection.
>>
>>101550392
>Tell me at least 6 memorable things of Code Geass.

I could, without even repeating that guy's >>101550643 list at all, since a couple of those don't count as memorable to me, so your question is purely rhetorical.
>>
>>101549749

>dat numbah one

>>
I won't understand the code geass love but yes Lelouch does deserve to be a little higher due to clearing out the list of the needed-to-apease catagory. It was like reading the first 4 books of dune but with Light Yagami and Paul Atreides merged
>>
Only surprise was seeing Johan.
Seeing a LoGH character would have been nice, but what can you expect from IGN?

On a side note, why the fuck is a video game site writing articles about anime?
>>
It's actually a damn good list. It isn't about what anime "should" be but considers anime for what it is without penalizing the characters for their popularity or fanbases.

Shinji is a version of who we are, Spike who we wish we were, and Goku the power fantasy trip.

Too many people are using a narrow-minded approach. I have no use for at least half the characters in the list but there's a decent job of justifying them.

>Shinji # 1

I actually expected IGN to be the type of people that would be all "Shinji is a shit character because hes a whiny bitch".

I was pleasantly surprised though.
>>
>all that casual shit
>Shinji #1
10/10 it's alright.
>>
>>101549749
Putting Shinji on #1 kinda saved the list.
I'm surprised they put Lain on the list,too.
