Here's an interesting idea for a favorites thread. Most of the time, a lot of people tend to pick minor characters, villains, supporting characters, etc. as favorites even though oftentimes a lot of work goes into the main character. It's just that in order to not offend everyone, main characters usually end up having a strong appeal for no one. Or at least very few*.
Who are you favorite male and/or female protagonists or (in the case of harems) "main target" characters?
Personally, I think I actually tend to like mains a lot. Here are a few, in no particular order:
Akari from ARIA
Belldandy from Aa! Megami-sama
Arcueid from Tsukihime
Shiki from Shingetsutan Tsukihime
Tsukasa from .hack//SIGN
*Obvious exception to the Nobody Likes Main Characters Rule: Kyon. Everybody likes Kyon.
