    Do you always like the main characters in the anime more than other characters?

    I found myself sometimes prefer the secondary characters over the actual main character.

    For example, in Ranma 1/2, I like Ryoga more than Ranma. I like Ukyou more than Akane. I even cheer for Moose when he fights Ranma.

    For Inu Yasha, I like Sesshoumaru over Inu Yasha, although in this case I believe they intentionally tried to make him a very likable cool character.

    Do you have similar experience in when the author of the anime failed to make you like the main character more?

    RE: Do you always like the main characters in the anime more than other characters?

    Nope, I actually prefer most minor/secondary characters over the main. Just to mention some of my favorites.

    Ben-to (Asebi Inoue)


    Guilty Crown (Tsugumi)


    Outlaw Star (Aisha)


    Index (MISAKA)


    I just don't like giving the main character all my attention. Sure its focused on them but I guarantee he/she/it would have gotten far without the other characters around him/her/it. Even if they only do one small thing it still could drastically effect the story and main character in some way. I've seen plenty of times where secondaries have also saved the main's life. I like to see the other character's stories too. That's one reason why I love when they do episodes that look into other characters past instead of just the main's. A lot of secondaries are also pretty funny to watch. A lot of humor comes from the character's around the main.

    ( Out of the 2 animes that I've watched..) I actually like the secondary characters a lot better! As Kokiri said ''A lot of secondaries are also pretty funny to watch. A lot of humor comes from the character's around the main. '' ( Copyin' and pastin', like a boss. xD ) and my favorite character is Aisha, she's awesome! With her humor and larger-than-life attitude and all.. ^^'' ( Rambles on and onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.. )

    Very interesting thread! I never really thought about it before but I guess I'm kinda split. Really does depend on the anime and the characters. (Captain Obvious over here lol). I think if I had to choose, I would choose the main character, but not always.

    RE: Do you always like the main characters in the anime more than other characters?

    Great thread because I never really thought about that much. Most of my fav anime characters are mostly secondary or villain (Aisha Clan Clan and Aion from Chrno Crusade). The only main characters I really like are Tenchi Masaki and Luke Skywalker because I can relate to them to a degree. As for Aisha and Aion they're the ones wish I could be: physically strong, super intelligent, confident and I'm making myself depressed as I'm typing this out. More or less I like characters that relate to me or wish I could be.
    We are all insane, we just act normal for the sake of others.

    Makes sense.
    It's those secondary characters that are often given the most life.

    I like secondary characters but not all the time
    Brera Sterne from Macross Frontier kill me with his haircut, so I chose to make a similar haircut, difference is that I have black hair but I think I'll make it blond in future !

    In Outlaw Star my favorite character is Melfina well you can't say is a secondary character

    I believe in most cases the author try to make us to like the main characters the most. Sometimes it backfires lol. For example, I dislike Ranma on many occasions. I don't hate him, but his attitude sometimes make me dislike him. He is only the most powerful 'regular' character only because his father trains him extensively on daily basis, and he was also trained by Shampoo's great grandma with the most powerful technique. Akane too, just a violent tomboy who got Ranma only because Ranma's father made him live there. Ryoga who is quite "innocent" and he become strong mostly because his own training. Ukyou is the hottest girl in the show, and also have my respect for be able to survive on her own from age 6 or so after Ranma's father ditched her. Even Moose have my respect for willing to do anything for Shampoo, even to throw away his pride.

    Not necessarily. From Dragon Ball Z, I like Gohan, Vegeta, and Trunks more than Goku. But I guess they are all kind of main characters too, just not the MAIN character.

    Well in DBZ, it is obvious that the author favors Goku the most. It seems like only him can take care of things. Only for Cell Saga, Gohan actually finished the villain off. Vegeta never gets to beat a real villain... even he trained his @ss off.
    Piccolo was definitely one of the most likeable characters. He was up there on equal level as Goku... then all the sudden he was thrown off because of the super seiya 2 thing...
