I do recall Suzaku's knighting ceremony failing to become the smash hit Yuffie intended it to be. I think towards the end of the first season, he was wounded and wanted to return to Yuffie's older sister, spoiler[ but he was had actually been brain controlled by Lelouch.]

Darlton was a pretty cool guy. Definitely some one I'd want to serve under.

For the poll, I'm voting for Sengoku Basara, but Samurai 7 is a close second.

Including Sengoku Collection seems like a stretch, but it had some great episodes so I'm voting for it, even if the whole is less than the sum of its parts.

I'm glad to see some props for Alice Malvin. She's determined to leave the world a better place but not naive about how tough it will be. Her ideals and selflessness are inspiring.

Yeah but that moment was one of the greatest twists of the season.

Also, I would have voted for InuYasha as the best Warring States era anime. I cannot understand how such a big series could have been overlooked. But since it's not there I voted for Sword of the Stranger.

General Andreas Darlton. Oh yeah, he.... who?

Misato Katsuragi. Really needed in NERV considering Gendo's personality.

Bright Noa. His slaps are deadly but he fails badly in Char's Counterattack with his own son. Shocked Well, in Tomino's retcon he doesn't.

Roy Mustang. Not much I can say besides him being one of the best characters from FMA.

I agree with earlier comments that Yang Wen-li is hard to beat as a compassionate leader. Even his adversary, Lohengramm, treats his subordinates well.

I'm also chuffed that Hyouge Mono has made it to the current survey. This is one series where we desperately need fansub heroes to bring us the last twenty episodes or so. Even better if some enterprising distributor would take it on.

I'd say Justy Ueki Tylor. No slapping, not asking for heroic sacrifices, just to retire with full pay :p

It's great to see Hyouge Mono in the poll. If ever there was a tragically overlooked show deserving of more attention, this is the one.

I voted for it. I'm so happy to see that someone has picked this series up again....


Wow! Wow! Wow! You just made my day complete.

Nice list there and I happen to love that Roy Mustang and Misato Katsuragi are in there.

As for the list for the best Sengoku Era anime title, where's Inuyasha? It's a major title with that setting.

i may be wrong, but i believe that Basilisk takes place in the early Edo period


And you are quite correct. Basilisk takes place during the reign of the Tokugawa clan, which is the Edo period. No idea why they included it in this poll. My vote goes for Sengoku Basara, it was just too cool for words

Also, L not winning a detective poll? I call shenanigans

Well while first place has the power of conveniences, Conan deserves it for over 70 volumes of solving cases while hiding his identity (and yet he never finds the villains who turned him into a kid)

But L spoiler[failed. Surely getting your man is a prerequisite for being a useful detective]?
