Top 20 Anime Shooters

akemi-homura-arsenal-by-ayase.jpg

The question of which of the many guntoting shootists appearing in anime most deserves to be top of an arbitrary ranking is explored by Japanese fans below.

The ranking:

1. Golgo 13 (Golgo 13)

2. Neil Dylandy (Gundam 00)

3. Daisuke Jigen (Lupin III)

4. Ryo Saeba (City Hunter)

5. Riza Hawkeye (Full Metal Alchemist)

6. Kurz Weber (Full Metal Panic!)

7. Usopp (One Piece)

8. Nobita Nobi (Doraemon)

9. Reki (Hidan no Aria)

10. Conan Edogawa (Case Closed)

11. Mami Tomoe (Madoka)

12. Ai Haibara (Case Closed)

13. Saito (Ghost in the Shell)

14. Kankichi Ryoutsu (Kochikame)

15. Keiichi Nakagawa (Kochikame)

16. Mikhail Blanc (Macross F)

17. Hayato Ijuuin (City Hunter)

18. Kinji Toyama (Hidan no Aria)

19. Homura Akemi (Madoka)

20. Yoko (Gurren Lagann)

Western anime fans will doubtless be left pondering the total absence of Cowboy Bebop and Black Lagoon from the list, to say nothing of Vash and Motoko – although at least no K-ON! character managed to make it in this time.

    "although at least no K-ON! character managed to make it in this time"

    To be honest, I was rather surprised.

    Kinji Tohyama (Aria) Mirror Shot is very good and he even shot two target right in the gun barrel with burst shot~ well limited only during his HSS mode though. Although if Kana is on the show he definitely on top too.

    Reki is something else basically her Dragunov is the extension of her hand, she even sleep with her gun. She definitely deserves on the top list.

    I surprise that Vash is not on the list too~ and the last movie just shown recently.

    For Nobita... well he is exceptionally good on marksmanship (or rather this is his only shining talent)

    I guess you don't watch Doraemon.

    Plenty of episodes involved Nobita owning everything if you give him a gun, notably ones where he's in Western Cowboys periods. Considering it's his natural talent and not aided with any of Doraemon's tools, he deserves to be on this list.

    No, one of Nobita true useful talent is his aiming skills. You got to see the kid shoot to believe it, even deadly space assassins lose to him.

    Nobita can unload full load from a 6 shooter onto the same target, at about the same spot.

    Given that he's a 10 year old crybaby who can't do anything without Doraemon's help, he's gotta be godly if he can do that.

    the aria series may be bad, but reki as a character is adorable.
    maybe vash and alucrad and the like arent there because they are too supernatural? then again, mami shoundt be there either then..

    If they have a hand to hand combat list Mio will definitely make it.

    Bacause it's "shooting."
    Kruz is far better than sousuke when it comes to sniping.

    Speaking of sniping, why no Ikari Shinji?
    He's got one of the Angels in one of the most dramatic sniping in anime history.
    Well.., on second thought, that was the only time gun was useful against Angels...

    Weber shot a bullet down the barrel of the Behemoth's mouth gun from the back of a speeding fish truck while both vehicles were in motion, while the Behemoth's Lambda Driver was on. That's why he's there.

    While Hawkeye obviously has a lot of skill, she doesn't seem to be as freakishly powerful as Vash or Revy are.

    Also, where is Ein and Zwei (And Drei) of Phantom Requiem for the Phantom? I don't think I've seen an anime that feature human characters pull off such superhuman feats of gun skills other than Golgo 13.

    I don't know pal, did you see Yui with that drill? I'm surprised she didn't make it on just for that

    O.P.: "...although at least no K-ON! character managed to make it in this time."

    I'm not a K-On! fan, but I think some sort of cross-over anime with Mugi as a sniper (an effective sniper, not a ditzy one) would be hilarious

    And Revy was being peeped on by Nobita, before Conan came and tranquilized her with his wrist gun. Then they fucked her front and back.

    You don't seem to be knowledgeable about anime and manga. Don't try to be a smartass, dumbass.

    Uh, it's a Japanese ranking? For a media that originates from THEIR OWN COUNTRY? Based on what they see the most? With old animes taking higher spots than their newer ones(Doraemon, Conan) implying they at least know more than you?

    This isn't top 20 Anime Shooters By Indonesians/Americans/Gaijins. Deal with it, because your pitifully ignorant elitism is stomach-inducing.

    A 10 year old kid who always get scolded by his mom for his grades and fails so much at life that his grandchild had to send a guardian cat robot back into the past to save his ass is a whole lot better than your Vash and Revy, lol.

    That's the thing; Doraemon's tools, as crazily awesome as they are, did not help him aim at all. You can give Nobita 10 airgun nozzles for each of his fingers and he'll use them all without wasting a single shot.

    Nobita breaks the rules using Doraemon's shit for anything EXCEPT shooting. It's his character talent.

    I was quite surprised to see Nobita there to be honest. Disappointed that Vash and Revy not in there...

    If Nobita was born during the wild west, he'd be a feared but cowering gunman XD...hmm that might make a good anime...
