None of the above. Hercule's mustache reigns supreme
Buy one get one free or get one free buy one?
Isn't Light Yagami that way? Even L did some bad stuff.
I guess it depends on the definition of a badass. A lot of the time, the "badass" rival gets on my nerves.
It's hard for me to get attached to a lot of anime characters because they're not around long enough. Comic book characters like Superman and Spider-Man are always going to be around having new stories all the time crossing different mediums. Characters like Kazuma and Ayano have a series that once it's over, that's the end of it.
Well, there's a lot more variety in anime than there is in a single genre of a single company of american animation
I feel like a better match up would be american cartoons or sitcoms, dramas, or just tv shows in general vs animes in general.
I wanna bump this to voice my opinion:
I think Light was a monster; like, up there with even say Mao or Stalin. I don't even know if he had the best of intentions at heart, even in the first episode he was bent on becoming a "god". I don't think what he did was justified in any context, but even ignoring that it doesn't really seem like he did anything for the right reasons. I think he wanted the feeling of having created a perfect world rather than just having done it for the right reasons. He bugs me as a character because, he just was one of the most despicable human beings I've ever seen fill a protagonist role. Actually, no, he's the most despicable human being I've ever seen fill that role. That being said, I do think he was charismatic and charming, and likable even though he was just flat out sociopathic... which is what is most terrifying.
That's why, the ending really confuses me to as why people hate on it so much... it would not have been an okay ending for him to get away with what he did. He caused mass genocide, and there's really no other way to put it: that's what he did. While I very much enjoyed the series, I do think it was actually kind of a good thing that he not only went down, but he went down crying, because it showed his ego got the best of him, and the world came crashing right down on him; he wasn't as big as he thought he was.... the guy wanted his own father to die... how are we supposed to sympathize with him?
....and yeah, L wasn't such a nice guy either; but at least he had standards.
(Also, on a minor note, I love how the USA crumbled and got on its hands and knees begging to be a part of his regime... Yeah, 'cause that would happen.)
