Shows where watchers can barely remember the protagonist have been appropriately ranked, with one particular mecha series easily earning the title of being the most indecisive in terms of its main character.

The ranking:

1. Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny


2. Tensai Bakabon


3. Doraemon


4. Durarara!!


5. Urusei Yatsura


6. Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu


7. Atashinchi


8. Princess Mononoke


9. Youkai Ningen Bemu


10. Kekkai Sensen

    That's not even what the poll's title is. The title of the poll is actually "who's the protagonist?" meaning these are shows where it's unclear exactly which character is the protagonist, not that the protagonists are forgettable.

    To be fair, it can be read both ways and the poll seems to indicate the japanese audience didn't know either. It's pretty clear that in Seed Destiny Shinn is the protagonist but people hate him (forgettable) and want to see Kira as protag. Then you have Durarara where every character has equal parts and you can't just point out one character as protagonist.

    It's pretty hard to forget the protagonist of kekei sensen. The name... yes. The protagonist with the awesome god eyes? not so much.

    Not really. I forgot all about him and I really liked the anime, too. Probably time for a rewatch.

    Well the thing is, if anyone bothers to read the actual post from the Japanese website and not just the title, the author is asking the poll is asking who's the protagonist. There is nothing in the article about forgetting which is the protagonist nor was there any hate.

    Also, just like what the article says, Shinn was suppose to be the protagonist, but due to certain events... Kira became the protagonist once again.

    Who is the protagonist? I forgot because he never does anything!
    Who is the protagonist? I honestly can't tell because there's too many!

    Two different scenarios. If you can't even understand that, I worry about your brain.

    I guess a "live" equivalent would be the sitcom
    "Friends". Six protagonists with no particular one standing out. Thanks for the correction as I was totally confused the way it was originally posted.

    That explains why when I saw the Haruhi image the first thing I thought was "who is the protagonist of that, anyway?"

    the question the source link posed should rather be translated with something like "who actually is the main char"

    it's meant in the sense who the real main char is

    for example
    kyon-kun is overshadowed by haruhi as main char

    is doraemon really the main char in doraemon, doesnt it actually follow the storry of nobita-kun

    seed destiny main char is shin asuka, isnt it rather athrun zala or at the end pretty much kira yamato

    That makes a lot more sense, but didn't the author of Urusei Yatsura confirm that Ataru is the protagonist and Lum isn't?

    >implying the one who tell the story / perspective of the story is the main character.
    Uh, you know, Even though Sherlock Holmes is told with Watson perspective, the main protagonist is Holmes. So as Haruhi Suzumiya, Kyon is just a Watson for her.

    No, Kyon is the protagonist. Take him out of the picture and the story falls apart. Take Haruhi out of the picture and Nagato fills in. Just like in the movie.

    I agree with the deity actually being Kyon. The number of clues in the anime are just too overwhelming for it not to be.

    However I think the other players are not aware of it.

    Besides, Kyon is the one who really has the powers of a god, all unknowingly. The others just desperately fool Kyon into believing Haruhi is doing all those things, because they know not only might Kyon destroy the world if he realizes he's the god, but that he'll recognize that something weird is going on and by realizing that, he might become aware.

    By acknowledging the weirdness, but falsely claiming that the source is Haruhi, the other factions can focus on keeping Kyon occupied with Haruhi, rather than potentially becoming aware that he himself is the source.

    It's a theory. (crosses arms defiantly)

    So people don't know that Ataru and Kyonkun were the protaganists. And for Seed, it's the two gay guys. Princess mononoke, the title tells you, same with doeremon.

    I wonder if people confused if Ataru or Lum was the protagonist. Still pretty dumb to have either one on the list.

    Maybe people think Cherry is the main star of the show.

    I think anime characters nowdays are so forgettable. Main chacters and side kicks as well. Plus, the new blood in the otaku reign forgets every anime show per season. Just like a tissue in the trash can.

    The new blood has been trained in the west to forget what happened just a bit ago, so that they never get confused when today's five-minute hate contradicts yesterday's five-minute hate.
