When you are thinking about getting involved in anime fandom, it can be a little daunting. With satellite TV deals, you can watch some of these popular anime characters. What are some of the famous characters that you are going to run into?
At the moment, one of the most popular characters around is likely Kurosaki Ichigo, the sword-wielding teenager from Bleach. This anime, designed primarily for young boys, has won worldwide attention.
If you are someone who loves cute girls, strange world-changing events and breaking the fourth wall, there is Suzumiya Haruhi, from the anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. What starts out as a school adventure turns into something much deeper and stranger.
When it comes to the classics, one of the most popular anime characters is Ikari Shinji from the iconic Neon Genesis Evangelion. This show starts out as a standard episodic feature about robots fighting aliens, but it quickly evolves into a deep discussion about the boundaries humans set around themselves and the fate of people in general, all with a frightened teen at the center of things.
Though the anime Gintama has achieved cult status in the United States, the anime and its hero, Sakata Gintoki, is amazingly popular in its home country of Japan. This show is an anachronism stew, replacing key points in Japanese history with alien attacks. This is another show which has moments of high humor and deep tragedy, and its long-running nature allows for the exploration of many fascinating themes.
For drama, there is very little to compare with the adventures of Lelouch Lamperouge, the hero of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. This action-oriented anime has intense battle scenes and a great deal of character development as the teen hero goes from rebel to tyrant to something else entirely.
When it comes to romantic or slice of life anime, you cannot go far before you run into Honda Tohru, who is the star of Fruits Basket. Tohru is an orphan who finds herself falling in with the Sohma family, a rich clan that is cursed by the animals of the Chinese zodiac.
There are plenty of amazing anime characters out there to fall in love with, so find a story that calls to you!
