The main protagonist of one highly praised basketball series has attained first place on this intriguing ranking, which has asked its voters to select the anime character they believe to have grown the most – though the list’s significant lack of females has easily proven to be the most surprising result.

The ranking:

1. Sakuragi Hanamichi (Slam Dunk)


2. Goku (Dragon Ball)


3. Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto)


4. Krillin (Dragon Ball)


5. Usopp (One Piece)


6. Amuro Ray (Mobile Suit Gundam)


7. Hikaru Shindo (Hikaru no Go)


8. Pop (Dragon Quest: Dai no Daiboken)


9 (tie). Shinji Ikari (Neon Genesis Evangelion)


9 (tie). Hisashi Mitsui (Slam Dunk)

    Well, if you count the original Dragon Ball, he has matured physicallly at least...mentally not so much.

    "matured the most"
    I'm sorry, Why is Goku on this list? Have people not Watched Super?
    Goku literally put 11 Universes at risk of being erased all because he wanted to fight someone strong.

    How the hell does whingy Akari get on the list? He's the same wet dishcloth in the films as he is in the original series.

    I can make case for Shinji. Because with every incarnation of Evangelion, he becomes less whiny. Especially in the manga.

    Goku only gets stronger, he's never matured.

    Amuro, depending on the story never lives long enough to actually mature

    Krillin and Naruto though have made massive leaps in growth

    That's only because everyone loathed Shinji from the start.

    And Krillin didn't make that much of a leap in growth, maybe a foot or so.

    Naruto I think did mature a lot, though I can hardly BELIEVE IT!

    To be fair, I always felt shinji WAS getting better (original series) until SHE arrived. We all know who I mean by that.

    Most here wouldnt get the "believe it" reference, IF they even watched it, most would choose Japanese, as it wasnt mis-translated to childish like Engkish dub was. Dattebayu is a catch phrase only Narutos uses, it has no meaning, but it'd most likely be compared to "Shazaam" "Booya" or "Dynomite!" not "believe it" since saying "believe it" after most of the real sentences Naruto says, would make worse sense than having a word there no one has ever heard of.

    If anything I'd equate "dattebayo" with "booya" like you said, or more familiarly "hell yeah"

    In any other series, like Dragonball or Naruto, Usopp would've just fallen by the wayside when the power creep set in.

    That's the great thing about One Piece.

    Agree with this. Shinji is, was, and always will be a whiny little bitch in a permanent cringe position.

    It goes without saying he blew his chance forever with both Rei and Asuka.

    Shinji has the least progression. In fact he has character regression.

    Goku didn't mature at all, his personality was completely changed between Dragonball and Dragonball Z, Dragonball was a fun adventure, with story, DBZ is basically the same crap every other episode; bad guy shows up, good guys have no chance, but they oower up and beat the bad guy, who then becomes a good guy or dies. Very little story aside from some planet is in danger

    I think Goku should get swapped out with Vegeta on this list, cause if anyone from dragon ball who has matured the most its him,with what he's shown in the series so far and learning from his mistakes when he was beaten up by Majin Buu. Goku doesn't seem to learn from his judging from his recent situation he's put the world in.

    Vegeta needs to be in this for sure instead of Goku. I really love the new Vegeta on how he is such a good father figure to his young family.. He wont even leave Bulma's side while she is pregnant to go train with Goku. If anyone has matured it is him.

    Indeed. Apparently whoever voted on this list didn't mean mental maturity because Goku has in no way done that.

    Goku's the same as when Bulma first found him.

    As much as I like some of the series listed there, Goku never really matured at all. As for Shiji, that guy should've been sent to a mental institution.

    Actually I noticed hes gotten a tad smarter since the Buu saga. Still ignorant and innocent as proven last ep but hes also spending more time with his family at least when you compare him to the end of the Buu saga

    Of course girls don't mature in anime. They stay unidimensional fantasies, like what there were concieved originally.

    Anybody rightfully on this list is going to have started as a very immature little shit, so a more generous view is that girls start off mature sooner and aren't such immature little shits.

    Slam Dunk owns Kuroko

    And the lack of women only justifies the belief that their admirers want them to stay the way they are otherwise they lose some of their appeal. Take Yoko from Gurren Lagann her most remembered appearance during the liberation but no one bats an eye with her older look even if some consider her to be hotter that way

    That is a bad thing in appreance & function?

    Anime people don't have the same physiology as us. Plenty of things that will kill or mess us up badly, bounces off anime people.

    I had to train very hard to partially lift a light car, many anime little girls can do that easily, or fire a LMG from the hip without much clothing, or send a quarter ~ half ton object flying with a lift or a kick, and they look fabulous doing it. Personally would not have it any other way.

    I can do that, but those muscles shows.

    And anime people shows age? Yoko from Gurren Lagann got old? which episode was that?
