Hmm, a coincidence that Sho Hyami voices 2 characters on this list? :)

Hmmm, was gonna ask where Jigen was, but Zenigata is a great choice for Lupin III, too...

I think the next in this series of lists should be dedicated to the best anime ensembles, shows where the characters work and interact in such perfect harmony that to remove any one of them would be detrimental to the show.  This would allow the inclusion of shows like "Cowboy Bebop," which has fascinating characters, but none of them stick out enough to merit inclusion on a list like this made of single characters.

Lt. Yamamoto is indeed the straight man, and I guess the charm in this archetype is that he's fully aware of it as well.  His largest character flaw is that he's often too busy trying to please everyone, including Duty personified, that he often forgets what it means to simply have faith.

I remember being a little torn on Bruce's character in GALAXY RAILWAYS.  I think the anime is great, as the drama superbly crescendoes toward the end, but it's important to note that his Angel of Death character-type is not uncommon in military-themed anime.  That aside, Bruce's character is intriguing beyond this, because Bruce is a complete jerk... but he's infinately reliable in the field.  He's an easy character to hate, in spite of how intelligent and resourceful he is.

Puuchan is a pretty deceptive character, which makes BEST STUDENT COUNCIL all the more fun.  His little snipes at Rino's classmates and insights into what it's like living on your own carry their own weight when the time is right.

Um what happened to characters from shows like cowboy bebop and Ah my goddess. I actually like the list but these should have been added somewhere. Most of these charachters are from old school anime not some of the later so if that's the case then the list is fine.
