    Who is the greatest character written?

    Not necessarily your favourite, but rather how well the said character is written.

    I might have made this thread before but cant find it

    my single most favorite character is batou from ghost in the shell - although it's debatable how well-written he is, due to GiTS being very focused on implication and never falls back on outright telling the watcher something about the characters. he's the most human character in the franchise, and i think that once you have finished the series, batou truly feels like a person who had his own story, has his own demons and has personal things that keep him up and running instead of succumbing to going through the motions. GiTS has its problems, but i think with batou, they have created a timeless character that won't ever have an equal.

    this applies to the original GiTS movie too, even though he is vastly different in it compared to SAC and 2nd GIG - perhaps this is even the most brilliant execution of batou. with a minuscule amount of words, batou is a more fleshed out character (though with a lot of it depending on interpretation) than hundreds of thousands which had an entire series dedicated to them.

    oskar von reuenthal is another character that has entire essays dedicated to him that praise his excellent writing, and i would have to agree. i think that with the screen time he had and with the attention he received even when not directly shown, the writers could not have created a more satisfying character than him. this is a normie pick basically, but i see no reason to arbitrarily disagree simply to be contrarian. reuenthal is not my favorite character in LoTGH, but i cannot disagree that he was perfectly executed.

    however, there are many more characters that i think are on par with reuenthal (and batou) - these all excel in different areas and as such would definitely deserve a dedicated explanation for picking them, but i am running out of time so i will list them and maybe come back to this post if i feel like it.

    • onizuka from great teacher onizuka
    • kaiji from kaiji
    • tokai from sanctuary
    • mr. takeda from seison life
    • rosso from porco rosso
    • nero from 91 days (probably a pick that sticks out like a sore thumb, but i feel like nero is the greatest character to come out of a one-cour in years)
    • mr. rosso from monster
    • makishima from psycho pass (another sore thumb i'd wager, at least when stacked against the rest of these)
    • takamura from hajime no ippo
    • ooba youzou from aoi bungaku
    • sahana from sundome
    • kurosawa from saikyou densetsu kurosawa
    • sakura from narcissu
    • madenokoji from oooku

    anyway, might be biassed, but Yasu from Umineko is really carefully crafted by Ryuukishi07 imo

    um let's see. this is a tough question. I really can't give a definitive answer, but these are the ones that came to my mind.

    Tsukasa - Tokyo Crazy Paradise
    Tatsuya Uesugi - Touch
    Shinobu Sensui - YYH
    Kurama - YYH
    Hisoka - HxH
    Yuri Ishtar - Red River
    Kenshin Himura - Ruroni Kenshin
    Light Yagami - Death Note
    Niizuma Eiji - Bakuman.
    Hiruma Yoichi - Eyeshield 21
    Professor Kawato - Rookies


    ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ The real world is for those who can't imagine anything better.

    Would rather not rate obvious characters like Johan or whoever:

    -Anotsu from Blade of the immortal (very tough as a lot of characters in this story are on the same level; habaki and rin most notably)
    -Kaiki from monogatari
    -Beatrice from Umineko
    -Gyro from JoJo
    -Kamishiro from Holyland
    -Maou from G-senjo no maou
    -makishima from psycho pass
    -Kikuhiko from Rakugo
    -desty nova from battle angel alita
    -Jack from pandora hearts
    -munsu from shin angyo onshi
    -Kurosawa from Onani master Kurosawa
    -Yuuko ichihara from xxxholic

    Want to say that a character isn't defined by their merits alone but also by how they're treated by context or what role they have in the story.
