Best Anime Protagonist – Round of 16

Coming down to only 32 protagonists means there are gonna be some very good characters we’re saying goodbye to. Sad to see them go, but thems the breaks.

Remember the fallen

  • Emma – The Promised Neverland
  • Alucard – Hellsing
  • Shinji Ikari – Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • Captain Harlock – Space Pirate Captain Harlock
  • Chiyo Sakura – Girl’s Monthly Nozaki-kun
  • Yusuke Urameshi – Yu Yu Hakusho
  • Ranma Saotome, Ranma 1/2
  • Josuke Higashikata – Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
  • Ryuko Matoi – Kill la Kill.
  • Haruhi Fujioka – Ouran High School Host Club
  • Lain Iwakura – Serial Experiments Lain
  • Haruko Haruhara – FLCL
  • Simon – Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
  • Kaguya Shinomiya – Kaguya-sama Love is War
  • Tohru Honda – Fruits Basket
  • Fujiko Mine – Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine


Now, with only 16 characters left, the cream must be separated from the chaff. I think I got that metaphor right.

Stray observations:

  • Once again, Spike had the largest tally and differential. Emma didn’t stand a chance
  • Yuri just barely eked out a victory with one point between him and Kaguya
  • Similarly, Deku just barely capped Lain by one point
  • The lowest scoring winner was Shirase, with a respectable 12 points.
  • The highest scoring loser was Tohru, whose 14 points was not enought to beat Vash’s 26
  • Emma only got 4 votes this round
  • None of the match subtitles got any votes, but my favorite was Our Dads Suck

Please refrain from posting until I’ve gotten all the rounds up. Thanks 😀
