Welcome everyone to Day 56 of the 100 Day Anime Challenge. Today’s question is: Who is your favorite Anime character, and why? Now, this is one of the tougher questions i’ve encountered so far, as it’s really quite hard to pick just one favorite character out of so many that I like. Plus, we’ve covered favorite Male, and favorite Female characters already, back on days 3 and 4. So, i’ll throw out some honorable mentions here, instead.
Spike Spiegel, from Cowboy Bebop, is one of my favorite characters of all time. A somewhat lazy goofball on the surface, he is still tied down by his dark past as a member of a massive mafia group. And even though he has tried to run, his past keeps catching up to him, hurting both him, and his friends, in the process.
This might seem a strange pick, but Killua Zoldyck, from Hunter x Hunter is a favorite of mine as well. His laid-back, sarcastic attitude belies a harsh past, and a firm desire to make friends and go on adventures. He may seem mature, but he’s really just a child at heart, and that kind of layered character is something that I love to see.
Holo the Wisewolf, from Spice and Wolf, is such a lovely character. She’s cute, of course, but her wit is as finely honed as a razor, and her humor is bright and sunny. Though she has the wisdom of many hundreds of years, she also understands, and fears, loneliness and abandonment. Also she’s a massive wolf-god.
