Favorite Characters - Any Media
I don't know if any of you have seen the show Code Geass before, but OH MY GOD it was so amazing and to anyone who has a prejudice toward anime I urge you to watch it. I was often skeptical of it too until I was recommended this show and I am simply astounded at its depth. But I digress, the main reason for this thread is so we can all share our favorite characters from whatever media they belong to!
Jay Gatsby (The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald) - I have a big soft spot for romantic characters and this guy is the pinnacle of that ideal for me. There just isn't enough of that in the world today and I try to reread this novel once a year just so that it stays fresh in my mind. Conversely, I cannot think of a character I despise more than Daisy!
Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer by Joss Whedon) - I'm a huge Whedon fan and Buffy has been with me through thick and thin ever since I was younger. One of the reasons I prefer television series to movies is that I can stick with a character for a long time and watch as they mature. Even though Buffy goes through all these supernatural experiences, I still feel like I can empathize you know? Can people have fictional characters be their heroes? If so, she is definitely mine.
Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass) - I am astounded at the complexity of this character and I never thought I would say that about an animated television show. I'm having trouble even attempting to characterize him as there are so many facets to his person. I know trying to wrap him up in a neat little summary won't do him justice so I seriously urge anyone out there who is looking for a deep show to check out Code Geass (just look it up online as there are tons of hosting sites) and make sure to watch the English Dub as it's excellent!
