Let me assure you all, I am not harboring any feelings for Cloud, lol.  He's way too depressing to be around and would most definitely kill the mood.  And I've been watching anime since the 90s tso I've seen plenty and have a ton of characters I do like.  In fact, I like a lot of the guy's on this list (Light, Vegeta, Naruto, ect.) but that doesn't stop the fact that they can be annoying.  And no, I don't want to write an annoying girls article, because that's too easy.  Annoying girls in anime are easy to come up with, we can only focus on Sailor Moon and Misa and Relena Peacecraft and Sakura for so long before it gets boring.

@ brichibi:

Which is why I said that you should watch more anime.  (Oh boy...)  There are LOTS of annoying girls in anime.  WAY TOO MANY for my taste.

I can start off with Lucky*Star's Konata and Akira, CLANNAD's Tomoyo and Kyou, FMP's Chidori, every female character that's short and voiced by Rie Kugimiya, every other character voiced by Yui Hiroe, and Black Lagoon's Revi.  (As I said before; the lot of the blame goes back to the creators of these shows and the fans who like them.)

Also, I actually like Relena Peacecraft.  She's "rich and bored."  But she's not annoying because she's not a cliche'd character.

I started watching anime in 1974. Don't even get me started on pussiefied and or incredulously ridiculous the portrayal of male characters has become.

Why am I not surprised to find Ranma on this list? The hatred of either Ranma, Akane, or, most often of all, both, is legendary in the anime community.

I disagree. Ranma is a 15-16-year old male, which, by definition, makes him:

a) Something of a insensitive jerk (I speak from personal experience); and

b) Way too young to make any reasonable kind of "choice".

However, in point of fact, things were starting to progress nicely between him and Akane, Kuno-stupidity not withstanding, when Ryoga shows up. And Shampoo, Cologne, Mousse, Ukyo, Kodachi, etc., etc., etc.  Plus family fun, etc., etc. Throw Happosai into the mix, and Ranma doesn't have the time to make a choice.

Consider: "he" starts off on great terms with Akane, up till the point she discovers that Ranma is actually a guy. For reasons which many seem not to appreciate, this causes Akane to freak. Despite that, he's starting to realize that Akane's actually a cute gal, when visitation starts up, and never stops. Although the anime doesn't get there, the manga makes clear, in the end, that Ranma does come to recognize his true feelings, and that Akane understands and returns those feelings. It's not the perfect conclusion that Maison Ikkoku reaches, but, then, Akane and Ranma are still teenagers, with the whole concluding chapter emphasizing that the only real problem the two of them have is all the people they have to deal with.

The complaint that Ranma doesn't make a choice isn't a valid one. True, the anime doesn't get to the point that the manga does, but that's not Ranma's fault.

@ chrisbeverage- um I know you didn't write this article but I have actually commented on a couple of your reviews. Genshiken 2 vol 1 being the last one I have done so far. I keep an open mind when reading them. There are times when i feel that you are right on the money and then there are times when I disagree with you.

I say you have done a pretty fair job of reviewing anime. That is just my opinion.
