Well, my favorite male character so far is Kamina of Gurren Lagann. Why, you ask? For he takes on life's biggest challenges head-on and makes doing so look totally badass.
Making life more manly...since 2007
Favorite female character? Hmm...tough choice. Of all of the female characters that I have come across in manga or in anime, I guess that Bridget el Satellizer of Freezing at the moment is. Not sure why....must be her looks xD
Meet Bridget el Staellizer, the....um, what was I talking about? 0_0
My favorite female character is definitely Kino from Kino no Tabi. No matter what situation she finds herself in, she is cool, calm, and collected. There are other little things that I like about her also, but it's hard to explain if you haven't seen the series or read the novels.
This isn't the clip I wanted to show, but unfortunately there aren't many clips on Youtube or elsewhere.
Male is a little harder. I can think of many good male characters, but it is hard to pick one that I consider a favorite. I feel like I'm forgetting someone obvious, but the two that keep coming to mind are Lupin the 3rd and Free from Soul Eater. Both characters are somewhat similar. Both have their eccentricities, but both are very skilled at what they do. I will have to think more though, because I feel I'm forgetting someone.
My favourite male character in animé would be Son-Gohan. He's the character I liked from the beginning of me watching Dragon Ball Z, and at the beginning of me watching any animé. The first I watched of DBZ was the Nakem sage which I consider one of the best sagas. His rise from being a scared boy with potential, to becoming it's saviour. Goods transition.
My favourite female character I think is Ryoko from the Tenchi Muyo franchise. Has great power but is really a softy at heart...well maybe only to Tenchi. And will destroy anyone who harms him or tries to.
Toki Fujiwara from Code:Breaker love he's personality,I think it's like mine,he will hate this but I love how they always make fun of him.Like his power and how he uses it.His backstory leaved me so sad.
Female is of course Evangeline,everyone must know that.^^
