still, being one of KyoAni’s earlier projects should at least make it pretty noteworthy.

    oh wait, I just checked the full listing. FMP did make the list… at last (25th) place…. with 4 votes… and 24th place got over 40 votes…. and Hidan no Aria ranked 17th…. and I think I’m gonna be sick.

    I’m disappointed at how much the fanbase eats up the reverse-trap. I’ll stick with the English ojou-sama, thank you very much.

    Apparently so. I didn’t even know her English name myself before I saw this list followed by a quick search just to confirm. Anyway, I think the replies to my comment prove my point: people are far more liable to recognize her by her original name. I know Sankaku Complex has a tendency to use English names (namely with Pokemon), but it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that this is one case of the English name being too obscure to be worth using. It’s almost up there with referring to Goku as Zero.

    But Homura probably didn’t qualify for the list because she already starred. Her name might not be in the title, and she spent the first half keeping to the shadows as Madoka and her merry friends went on their blissfully unaware magical girl adventures, but it’s still essentially HER story about keeping that titular character alive. And if you don’t wanna believe that she starred in the series, she most definitely starred in Rebellion.

    Vi Graythorn? OK, seriously, does anyone even use the Case Closed names at this point? Adult Swim canceled the show about a decade ago (by which point, I don’t think Ai even had a chance to appear), and last I checked Funimation didn’t even continue the DVDs.

    For what it’s worth, she did have the longest history as a magical girl (discounting Homura’s repeat time loops), which also included an association with Kyouko (one which, despite being Mami’s fellow veteran, barely ever got focused on in either the series or the movies). This backstory has been featured in various media like the third CD drama, the Different Story manga, and the PSP game, but it has yet to be animated.

    Is Moshidora really a sports series, though? Been a while since I saw it, but I recall it being more of an economics edutainment anime that just happened to use sports as a backdrop.
