6. Guts (Berserk)


7. Subaru Natsuki (Re:Zero)


8. Archer (Fate/stay night)


9. Char Aznable (Gundam)


10. Atsushi Nakajima (Bungou Stray Dogs)


The female ranking:

1. Rem (Re:Zero)


2. Mitsuha Miyamizu (Kimi no na wa)


3. Tsubasa Hanekawa (Monogatari)


4. Hitagi Senjougahara (Monogatari)


5. Saber (Fate/stay night)


6. Mumei (Koutetsujou no Kabaneri)


7. Freyja Wion (Macross Delta)


8. Emilia (Re:Zero)


9. Mikumo Guynemer (Macross Delta)

    How in the living hell does Subaru, a character who has an actual personality, lose to that piece of wood Kirito? It's been 4 years and people are still riding this shows nuts. I really wish an actual good show would steal that limelight away from SAO, please.

    Simple: Kirito is a wish-fulfillment main character, and people want themselves in that position.

    Subaru needs to climb the rankings. He's obnoxious most of the time, but at least he's real. He's a flawed character that realizes his mistakes and corrects them. Kirito is a one dimensional Gary Stu with no flaws to correct.

    At least they know who best girl is.

    If you frequent this site even semi-regularly, you'd know that A) these polls are always questionable and B) the general population, especially in Japan, will always hold generic, boring characters/shows above everything else.

    They got over Asuna, why can't the same happen with Kirito? Is the industry so lacking in male MCs that we can't get rid of him?

    kirito has a cool character, the face is of course normal (not ugly, not handsome)

    it`s the story that makes him a good character in overall view

    Nevermind the fact that character-wise S1 Kirito cannot be compared to S2 Kirito anyway, but I guess you need to watch S2 to know this.

    S1 Kirito was absolutely terrible, thanks to them giving the finger to the original novel, S2 Kirito, while still not "one of the best" when it comes to characters, definitely isn't as bad as most people make him look.

    Rei looks like someone I knew from high school. Sorry I could not save you from drugs Sara, but in a way I guess you're back again. Nice to see you Rem.

    Rei is very inexpressive. Takes alot to even get a smile out of her.

    Rem is far more expressive in actions and facial expression.

    I lol at all you that keep saying sword art is bad. It's just funny to see you people going mad over it. Accept it, SA is good, has good animation, music, a nice world, characters and etc. Get over it already. Grow up.

    I watch Anime since 1984. I'm sorry but I already watched more Anime than you will for the rest of your life. All my friends like SAO too. You just need to get off you high horses and accept the truth. SAO is not the best Anime but it's not bad either. Accept it.

    Dude, that's like criticizing Marvel movies because they aren't Shakespearean enough. They don't want to be! You don't like SAO? Ok, opinion noted. Does your opinion on that matter? No. Money matters and SAO rakes in the cash like a 15year old runaway girl rakes in STDs.

    Narrative-wise it was awful. Let's see. Aincrad arc. Deus ex machina right at the end there. That's the most glaring but not the only issue. There's all that attention being paid on the lovey-dovey portions instead of, you know, the high stakes survival game portions of which the series' premise is built on.

    The Fairy arc: Convenient fairy! Another deus ex machina! All that development of Asuna's character? Throw it all out and make her classic damsel of distress! And what's with that whole 'you beat us therefore we are friends' mentality of Kirito's allies?

    The arc where they have guns: Let's ignore Shinon's PTSD for most of the arc and focus on KIRITO'S GUILTY CONSCIENCE which he had not shown at all UNTIL THIS ARC! Also let's make him a Jedi because why the hell not? And that discussion on reality and virtual reality at the start of episode 1? You thought Death Gun kills his victims by inflicting pain so real it causes a cardiac arrest but NOPE! It's a red herring!

    I proceed to not follow the other arcs.

    Whether or not SAO is good or bad is subjective.
    At the end of the day it's just another anime that people will constantly hate or like it too much.
