I am not trying to encourage anyone to hate all the afromentioned characters on the list above, but I am just trying to ask anyone about which anime characters above who don't deserve on the list. If you want to defend any of the characters on the list, please do and explain why you defend them.

Aww man, I'm sad Homura is on that list. I love her devotion to Madoka and her refusal to accept that Madoka's life must end tragically.

Sayaka does get on my nerves a little bit sometimes, I'll admit, but she's a genuinely good person too and I'm sure there's plenty of characters far more annoying than her.

I must admit I think Yu-Gi-Oh's Mizuki is very annoying, what with how she goes after all the guys but snubs Tristan/Honda even though he's nuts about her. I'm glad she was only in that short, first anime series and not the main YGO series most people think of.

I don't watch/read Haruhi Suzumiya, but I'm not surprised she made the list.

I've already expressed sadness at Usagi Tsukino making the list. She is a crybaby, true, but she does mature and she's a loyal, devoted friend and is very compassionate and caring to everyone.

Oh, and Ayumi on the list.... Sad. I admit that I don't always like the episodes with her and the Detective Boys, since I'm more interested in the main plot, but she is my favorite of the group and I think she is very cute and sweet.

That's interesting that Light Yagami made the guys' list. I always thought he was a very popular character. Maybe that's just with the girls, heh. In many ways I don't care for him, but his dark complexity definitely made him a good lead character for Death Note.

And oh wow, Kaito Kuroba on the list. In some ways I like his Kaitou Kid persona, and I like the real reason why he goes around taking jewels, but I don't care much for his perverted ways.

I agree with you about Usagi, I don't think she deserves to be hated that badly, even by the Japanese anime fans. Yes, it is true that she is quite severely flawed yet she still manages to be a kickass Sailor Moon anyway. And besides, just like what you said, she still has a pure heart and a loving personality.

As for Homura, oh well, as what I have seen on her character description, I don't see anything annoying/unlikeable about her.

Haruhi Suzumiya, yes I kind of agree if that she's annoying, but at least she can be funny sometimes and her relationship with Kyon redeems her somewhat. It is Mikuru Asahina that I don't like the most because she's just useless, boring, and she doesn't have personality.

Not a fan of Light, but my best friend is a fan of him.

Dio needs to be higher because he deserves the hate ^.^; He'd love it. Just like Ikari Gendo because they are both so darn cruel. I think some of the characters are suffering from some popularity syndrome that their show gets (ie: SAO, gundam, Macross, etc), because I don't get Kirito and Asuna being up there. I don't like SAO [anime] in particular but nothing about the two stuck out from what I could see so far. I didn't finish S1.

Shinn and Flit are up there for moral issues.

Makoto makes a ton of sense. He's so 2-D and acts like he doesn't have a brain.

I want Tuxedo Mask on this list. It's so fun to hate him because he's so useless.

1. School Days' Makoto Itou.

I think a lot of these characters are just on here because they're so popular that there's backlash against them, which is lame but yeah. Characters like Saber, Homura, Lacus, Asuna, and Sheryl are among the most popular anime characters in Japan period.

Same with some of the ones on the guy list, although there are more genuinely unlikable characters on there.

I usually find something to like about all the characters in the anime I watch, but I can't believe how much I hate Keima Katsuragi from The World Only God Knows. He is soo obnoxious, just finished Season 1, don't know if I have it in me to watch the next 2 seasons.
