Favorite/Least Favorite Character
Due to the fact that I haven't seen this thread yet after looking through the board, I've decided to create it just to see which characters everyone seems to like.
To be honest, I pretty much dig all the characters. The series really does have an interesting cast of characters, and a lot of the villains (at least, of the Noah) are likeable in their own ways. However, if I had to pick favorites, I would have to go with Allen (from the heroes side, with Lavi and Lenalee tied at second) and Road from the villains side. I can honestly admit that I've always liked Allen in that he's fairly different personality wise and the way his character is shaped then most shonen series, and seems to gravitate almost closer to a shoujo hero character. As for Road....well, I have to admit I have a bizarre adoration of "cute" crap, and when it's evilly so, that's simply wonderful. Her utterly sadistic and dark humor has been a great reason for it as well. I've been listening to the soundtrack for the musical "Avenue Q", and I can't help but be reminded of her when I hear the song "Schadenfreude".
As for dislike....well, the only one I truly and honestly hate is Kanda. He just made a really poor impression on me during his initial outing with Allen in volume two. He just apparently....acts like a total asshole to nearly everyone, with the only exception being his assholery to scare everyone off when he confronts Skin. Still, I just haven't seen him do anything to cause me to like him.
