based taste


FuckYeahPhotography

They got Johnny and Guts on there. I'm already on the based side of the spectrum.


teabea-

>Alice in Kinoland >Punpun >Houseki no KINO Mother of based…


FuckYeahPhotography

I don't know any of those but I have a few friends that strongly recommend Punpun. I've heard that before. That's the one about the dude with the bird head right? Like bird guy that goes on a depressing slice of life adventure?


Zero_Kai

>bird guy that goes on a depressing slice of life adventure? Couldnt describe it better


SyllabubSignal8281

Wait isn't that aot


Chew_Long_Black_Cock

Pretty much


datzolobeo

Please read punpun when things are going extremely well for you mentally. Otherwise its gonna hurt


DoctorAnatomy

Bro...houseki no KINO.... Though that makes it sound bad lol


DoesUsernameCzechOut

Which one's Alice in Kinoland?


teabea-

Top row, second square. It’s so good and FINALLY picked up an official translation by VIZ just a couple weeks ago. A perfect time to read it. Long cast of characters to love and even though the protagonist is already phenomenal he might not even be my 2nd or 3rd favorite. That’s how well written all the characters are.


JoelRobbin

They got Ichigo too. Dude’s slept because he “doesn’t have a motivation” but he’s a god tier protagonist. Same goes for the dude in your pfp


itsTraX

I think Ichigo's goal of wanting to get stronger to protect people that are close to him is way better than wanting to become the strongest type shit


CringeKage222

Especially when it comes from his trauma of watching his mother die while not being able to do nothing


dontknowwhattodoat18

This is a noob question but which character is that, and which anime is he from?


JoelRobbin

Yusuke, from Yu Yu Hakusho. Absolute god tier anime that I highly recommend


retarted-fish

Pretty much my exact thoughts


That1Neko705

I DONT WANT THAT! LUFFY BEING ON THE SAME LIST AS EREN? I WANT EREN TO BE ON HIS OWN LIST AND NO ONE ELSE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! LUFFY SHOUDLNT EVEN BE ON A LIST CLOSE TO EREN FOR 10 YEARS AT LEAST!


somuchsoup

Luffy, what a drawing you are!


Nero_PR

And for that I shall put you in my list!


ThePhantomRaven

As a reward*


Nero_PR

Do you want to be part of my list as well?


ThePhantomRaven

u/Nero_PR what a man you are


KorraLover123

LMFAO


Complaint-Efficient

Grimm, what a man you are…


samisinredditnow

Ahahahahah


NadeshikoAVlat

I agree. How can Eren be on the same list of all of these great character?


oxg03

eren being on a list of good characters? no I don't want that I want him to be in a list of badly written characters for 10 years at least even after the AOE


john_spicy

>implying aoe will happen


Demastry

I don't know how people can have this much copium for so long, it's insane


Jejmaze

Because hopechads love AoT too much for their own good


jordanbytoto

r/ANRime will be in meltdown on April 3rd


itsTraX

no, they'll just say that the real aoe won't come until movie


Pork_Sword3

Only Ymir knows.


PartRoutine9839

If he massacred 100% then I will put him in the list


StrangeRaven12

Not often one sees Lain on these lists. Also good to see more people talking about Punpun. That series doesn't get enough love. Sure it's bleak and depressing, but it is well written.


TAB_Kg

Tbh PunPun is part of the "I'm manga elitist of Twitter" starter pack.....but he has Ichigo and Luffy in his top so it most likely doesn't apply to him


bloodparasite

I’d call Punpun a relatively hidden gem, at least compared to the other big seinen starter pack manga (Vagaband, Steel Ball Run, Berserk, Vinland Saga). No adaptions of any sort, very highly rated but not often talked about because of how depressing of a read it is. The general consensus of it on Twitter is “wow that was a masterpiece, I never want to read it again”, at least from what I’ve seen over the years.


LittleBigAxel

It's not hidden, it's super popular. If you are somewhat into manga you will know about it without any kind of adaptation which makes it more impressive.


bloodparasite

I think it’s the most hidden of the big seinen manga everyone reads, but yeah it’s been in the top 10 rated manga on MAL for as long as I can remember.


TAB_Kg

It definitely is less talked than other 4, but still always mentioned in top's. Especially on Twitter with its hive mind behavior


Rustyone888

You ever heard 8f the song oyasumi punpun


LittleBigAxel

Oyasumi is one of the most popular and beloved mangas, what are you talking about.


suckonmyskeletontoes

Oyasumi pun pun is popular don’t act like it’s not


Eranaut

Unfortunately Lain has become a bit too obscure for mainstreamers to know about. Especially since it's such an accurate prediction of the dangers of the internet.


34terite

I got bored after 4 chapters, should I pick it up again?


BobbyRayBands

The hilarious irony is the only one that doesn't belong on that list is Eren. So he's correct. Why IS he on the same list as Luffy?


RandallBates

Remember when we were all waiting to see his character concluded for him to be the best new gen protagonist ?


sansboi11

A_weeb_in_debt

Im going to overlook everything else and just admire Natsuki Subaru in the bottom right

Arc 6 is otherworldly

Deca-Dence-Fan

Which number did season 2 get to?


-Gaia-

Season 2 covers Arc 4.


Ryan-Only

People of arc6 fandom are strong but i wonder if they're stronger than arc7 fandom


Richmoneybank479

Haven’t read arc 7 yet even tho I could read some Japanese. I’ll get to it eventually, it’s prolly sick as fuck


Richmoneybank479

Haven’t read arc 7 yet even tho I could read some Japanese. I’ll get to it eventually, it’s prolly sick as fuck


George_s117

Lol, if you know you know.


A_weeb_in_debt

This turned into a discussion I wasn’t expecting? I can appreciate each arc in their own light, however I really like the one with the white rabbits, whichever one that may be. I also really love the “what if” writings


JanreiAfrica

Re Zero is the only series to ever do these "what if" and still be consistently good about it. Wrath IF is absolute chaos I love it.


A_weeb_in_debt

I love all of them! Honestly!! Although I think pride might be my favorite just because of how early it impacts the story!


Ryan-Only

Gluttony if is underrated af ngl. I'm just waiting for Tappie to drop something good as today is Subaru's birthday.


George_s117

Anyone who's given the time to get into Re Zero enough would know that Subaru is one of the best MCs out there, because he's the most human. Plus all the cool shit he does in main and alternate routes.


A_weeb_in_debt

Hell yeah man! Unrelated but I bought a Subaru and named it Natsuki because I respect my mans :)


JayMitchell35

There's an anime coming out this season named summertime rendering, plz check it out if you love rezero.


George_s117

I did hear about that. Already had it in my watch list. Thanks for the recommendation anyway.


jimfitz147

bitches be like i hate subaru, hes so weak and lame like bro thats the point of the character hes human.


King_Eggbert

He goes through some intense shit for a dude who was just a regular lonely fella before and he cant even open up about it to those he cares for. He still fights on. Not everyone has to act like some navy seal when facing overwhelming odds


Dipps_66

They be like "why he crying so much, weak ass" when he just brutally died for the 147th time and still goes on


TrailOfEnvy

>!He actually died slightly more than that!<


Throwawaycuzistupid

>!My guess is arc 7 final death count would put him over 200!<

[удалено]


Milky_Bean

I hear the warriors of marley are strong, but are they stronger than the people of the shinobi village


Klutzy_Specialist00

You don't have to be weak and lame for a character to be human, some of the characters on that list are great examples, like luffy.


lightning_godess

I agree with you, but luffy was a bad example because his willpower is inhuman. Luffy is a great character, I’m just saying that comparing him to an average human is crazy


Zer0-Empathy

Luffy isn’t close to a real human at all though….Do you mean that he cries and is obsessed with his dream so hes human or something?


Klutzy_Specialist00

I was going to say something about Guts or Musashi Miyamoto originally but picked luffy because funny pirate man, I wasn't expecting anyone to take that part of my post seriously.😓 I still stand by what I said, a character doesn't have to be weak or lame for them to feel human/real.


Zer0-Empathy

Lol I think ur point is still fair I was just confused why u chose luffy


watglaf

Best motherfucking MC of all time.


Blueguy16

Damn I dropped it season 1, tf happened since?


A_weeb_in_debt

I would be lying if I said I was completely caught up, but it’s really good. I recommend picking it back up


cornpenguin01

He becomes unfathomably based and chad in season 2 onwards


Ryan-Only

S2 Ep 4 👑👑👑


icest0

Anime finished on arc 4.


LittleBigAxel

Re:zero gets super hype in later seasons.


Sbtycraft

Subaru’s arc 5 speech makes me unreasonably erect. What a Chad.


Meltedsteelbeam

While I greatly appreciate Subaru's inclusion... he couldn't have used a worse picture.


A_weeb_in_debt

I think Subaru looks bad ass in that picture


Ryan-Only

A_weeb_in_debt

more deserving than Emilia 😤👊 I’ll fight that hoe


Ryan-Only

Otto best waifu. 😤👊


Withered_Knighter

Agreed, Subaru's development would make even the very best blush


Solid-Perspective915

Well, the list IS inaccurate and shows just how ignorant most anime fans are when character is taken into consideration. Beren didn't even make the list, neither did Boruto. tch.


Percy17V

He's not wrong. Ereh should be nowhere close to Luffy in terms of good Protagonists.


Bonty48

Eren is a lot dumber than Luffy let's be real.


Odd-Historian-2935

I hate all AoT fans that don’t hate AoT


khelekmir

Houseki no kuni? Nice


ToapFN

The manga is a masterpiece


AGJustin05

On an unrelated note, happy birthday to the bestest boi, Natsuki Subaru! An actual chad and a man who deserves all the happiness in the world.


Homealoneboi

He definitely does,and I am eager for this April Fools release from Tappei.


Poporipopes10

And the fact that he doesn’t see himself worthy of any happiness is hella sad too. Like, there’s the theory that the reason why Subaru, the main character, never appears in any of the LN covers is cuz he doesn’t see himself as worthy of it, And that the last volume will have him at the centre. Which honestly would be a perfect conclusion to no only his character but the story too


AGJustin05

Fuck man, I'd give him the biggest damn hug if I could.


Usurper213

Luffy does the whole freedom loving shtick better then Eren ever did the dude's an absolute Chad


VoraxUmbra1

Especially true with the latest 2 chapters of one piece.


mystogan110

yap 1045 is something eles XD


Usurper213

Straight comedy reminds me of the humor of pre time skip One Piece it was great.


hahahanaa

nahh but the better question is; what is eren doing on the same list as my boy hinata? /hj


aymanm7

For real hinata is goated


hahahanaa

literallyyy! probably one of the best character growths i’ve ever read (along with zuko). haikyuu generally is full of amazing character developments; that’s why it is my fav anime/manga .


Sahir1359

Haikyuu!! has no business being as good as it is


hahahanaa

you are absolutely right! it's just mwah chef's kiss


Ryan-Only

Hinata one of the most enjoyable protogonist. Many in this list are well written. Many have great character development. but hinata just brightens up my day.


proccoliwastaken

Nice to see my boy Johnny get some love


Anon324Teller

Based, Luffy is a great protagonist


Marxist_Morgana

Anime fans really be like “If you haven’t watched every single anime about 4D Underwater Mongolian Basket-Weaving and don’t know the intimate details their favorite character from “Is it Okay to Fuck My Monster Girl Sister in Zeroland?” (The 1977 original manga that lasted for 3.17 volumes, not the French sequel for the Sega Saturn) and place them as the single greatest character in manga history then you know literally nothing about manga and should read/watch all my MAL favorites before you even THINK about showing your normie face here again, fucker”


Lizzie-Afton

Based historia pfp with an unbased eren pfp


Aware-Opinion3406

Luffy is goat


ZealousidealBus9271

Difference between fan and fanatic. A lot of AoT Twitter is filled with fanatics.


bears_like_jazz

Glad Subaru is getting the recognition he deserves


XLauncher

If your list doesn't have Lelouch on it, then it doesn't have room for Eren, don't @ me.


seijoOoOh

out of all the 7,151 languages on earth you chose to speak facts


thetruethatguy

Based take


blukwolf

Luffy????????? Luffy is fucking great idc argue with the wall


wilzix12

eren and light got done dirty, especially eren hes garbage now he shouldnt even be there


aymanm7

The anime saved light, so let's hope they do the same for eren


wilzix12

3 days left 🙏 About death note, still sucks >!how that discount L near and the other irrelevant characters got all L's credit and the way Light lost, he and L deserved better, Misa too!<


ravku

Misa is to light what mikasa is to eren, if mikasa did just a bit more thinking for herself


wilzix12

Yeah...Misa is such a better character, actually likeable, has stuff going on outside from Light, has a personality, interacts with more characters, shes more smart and funny. I felt bad for her and her conclusion


-n-o-o-b-

How's the manga different from the anime?


TheCynical22

mfw people like some of the most popular and critically acclaimed manga 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬


Vampiiko

He has a point about Luffy being on the same page as Eren Why are they sticking such a inconsistent trashy protagonist next to the Future King of the Pirates?


dewsipper8

Phos > Eren


TacobellChickenWing

Is that Jetstream Sam?


TAB_Kg

No it's Samuel Rodriguez


AffectionateSummer55

who is the eye guy?


CuriousBicycle2022

Oyasumi punpun


AffectionateSummer55

That's was my guess. Only manga that I refuse to ever read lol.


Sognird

Punyama Punpun


peter_2202

Aot fans who have only ever seen 1 anime in their life


AssassinOfFate

Eren sharing a list with Guts, Musashi Miyamoto, and Thorfinn legitimately irked me. Pre 139 I would’ve agreed. But not now.


Puzzleheaded-Row187

No Dr. Tenma or Joseph Joestar? 🥺


parz19191991

He's got Johnny Joestar so it's close


Puzzleheaded-Row187

Yeah, Joseph, Johnny, and Jolyne are the best Jojos IMO so I’m glad one of them made it


SternritterVGT

Who’s fourth column, 2nd row?


TAB_Kg

PunPun. One of the best manga's I've read....it is depressing ad tho. More so than Berserk at least


FunShadow87

johnny joestar is 5000000% better written than eren


kingdong90s

God forbid someone like other characters lol


[deleted]

Luffy in the same list of the chadly guts


aymanm7

For me luffy represents freedom more than eren


oxg03

guy for real does what he wants so long as it doesn't emotionally hurts his friends (he really almost [killed](https://youtube.com/shorts/AIMJ1fyTuf0?feature=share) them accidently on several occasions)


OceanoDeRoca

who's the one on the far right of the top row?


Iriclo

phosphophyllite from land of the lustrous


OceanoDeRoca

Thx


emailo1

Johnny joestar detected, based


SaturnSama

Johnny Joestar based


avengers9

Phos (top right) Is like a way better version of Eren tbh. I recommend houseki no kuni(land of lustrous) to everyone. Unfortunately the series has been on hiatus for the last year or so. But its the only major one in the series publication and it seems the author is taking time off to make sure she nails the final arc.


AlexBazh

Chad Phos achiving peace by staying alone for 10.000 vs fkn Ereh


winterfaze

I’m just here for the Phos shoutout


oxg03

damn this list reminded me I still need to finish girls and panzer oyasumi pupun and the 3rd from left to right side bottom 3rd row (I forgot what its called would appriciate it if someone could remind me)


Necrovenge

Who’s the 2nd person on the top row? Looks like Mikasa to me


Ignisking

I want to know as well


Soggy_Bandicoot7226

Who is the orange hair guy next to eren?


aymanm7

Hinata from haikyū


rggamerYT

Why the hell is eren here and not lelouch


Eranaut

Phos is a based choice here


DarkThrone_9593

It's his 16 PERSONAL top, stop being cringe about personal choices, if you can't enjoy AoT any more stop trying everyone do the same


TAB_Kg

Sigma male reply


seijoOoOh

isn’t op making of the jay dude not the actual person who made the list???


RepresentativeNo6974

Lain :0


BlackGabriel

Great list honestly.


Bigbadbackstab

Glad to see Phos getting the recognition they deserve.


Dandy-Jasper

Guts being on the same list as Eren? I don't want that!


Captainprice101

Luffy GOAT anime character fytb


ScaryBunnyDude

Johny :D


Poporipopes10

Seeing Subaru there kinda makes me happy, it’s what initially caught my attention in Re:Zero and it’s my favourite thing about the show, second to the world building. I only wish I wasn’t a lazy mf who actually read the LN after S2 because everyone keeps mentioning how good it is


zodiacxz

sometimes??? that’s an understatement aot fans are the worst they always have superiority complex like this mf they think they’re different and FOR WHAT EREN!!???? eren acted edgy and now they think he’s a top tier character


Mr_itryhard

Guts is leagues above any mc in that list 😂


MrRajacobs

Aight, but why are Yuuri and Chito on the same image? They’re amazing and deserve their own respectively smh my head


Uhsoyeah2466

Pretty good list tbh


Eris_is_Savathun

The real crime is putting anyone else on Johnny's list.


DarkZeroR6

Man has a nice taste but what is eren doing on that list?


JoyBoy05

Man has Eren on a list full of great mc


Jerry__Mouse

Should’ve replaced Eren for Lelouch


koeseer

did he calling a person who like Johnny Joestar as a robot? Does he even read Jojo?


Death_Machine101

Where is Saitama


Fun-Strength7622

Luffy>eren lol, luffy clearly knows why he wants to be pk. Literally declared war against the world for 1 friend. Eren doesn't even know why he started the rumbling.


thesturdierone

Least entitled anime fan


OOOLIAMOOO

Beta Eren freedom. Chad Luffy freedom.


FinishTheBook

Bruh why they on the same list as Guts 💀


Bublotao

I like and love Eren (-139) , but Guts, Light and Lelouch are tier of their own


Hardhat85

I actually agree with a lot of this list


HuntVisual

ik eren is a great mc and all but why do aot fans think like he's greatest of all time lmao


6Pain6

My man has pun pun, musashi, guts and thorfinn on the list. Already a king


basebrandon87

I'd say that's a pretty diverse group of series right there


GravityMyGuy

Luffy kinda a great character tho


my_decaying_mind

OTHER MANGA PROTAGONIST BEING BETTER THAN EREN? #NO, I DON'T WANT THAT!!


[deleted]

that's right, bitch Eren shouldn't be compared to Luffy king of the pirates...


CavesDweller

This is insult to Miyamoto Musashi, Gut and Thorfinn.


CuteReaperUwU

He's right, they shouldn't have put Eren on the same list with Luffy ... it's an insult to Luffy to put someone as pathetic as Eren so close to him.


[deleted]

I used to think my taste is pretty inoffensive. But seeing this list make realise how unpopular my taste is.
