I wouldn't be surprised if Grammara was leery of ever coming back here again.

#28 Ryoko


Ah, Ryoko. One of the main reasons I started watching a lot of anime in the late 90s. Tenchi was the first series I started watching regularly (thank you, pre-adult swim era late night Toonami block) and Ryoko was the first character in it to really catch my attention. It was interesting for awhile, each one of my friends had a different favorite Tenchi girl. My friend Nick was into Kyone. Art liked Washu. Nathan actually dug Mihoshi. We all mocked Jay because he picked Tsunami without really paying attention and we had to break the news that she was the alter ego of the little girl Sasami.

The original OAV series was pretty good. Back when I was in college I was in an anime club, and we attempted to watch the TV series in straight Japanese. None of us had the slightest idea what was going on, but it was fun to guess.

I liked Washu BTW.

Washu was a fun character too.  She was my second favorite character on the show next to Ryoko.  

I actually got started watching the first TV series, and went back later to watch the OAV.  By then I was hooked and I had to buy everything I could, including the three movies (two of which were good), the Tenchi in Tokyo TV series (which a considerably lower percentage of episodes were good), and all the goofy little spin-offs like the Mihoshi special and the Magical Girl Pretty Sammy parodies.  After sitting through that much, I was able to calm down, and not go nuts over Tenchi again until the GXP series and the new episodes of the OAV finally came out.

Fuckin' A, Daisy made it!  :D

That rules.

Sigh, Fred.

Gah! How did I forget her?!? She's probably my favourite Whedon character, too. 

WHY?!?!?! Sorry, I just NEVER get the love for her. I put her down there with Cordelia and Kennedy. I mean, let's remove her looks entirely. If she was played by any other actress would the character be as well liked?

Fred's a pile of wonderful. Cordelia's character arc from the first season of Buffy up until the fourth season of Angel is pretty amazing. Kennedy's abysmal introduction was remedied in the eighth season. It wasn't anything transforming, but they fleshed her out a bit becoming someone you cheered for (and those tees she wore!).

Yup. The RiffTrax Round Table, where Genesis is a massively popular band, and horse-fucking is a-ok!

*sings*

she seems to have an invisible touch, yeah
she reaches in and grabs right hold of your heart
she seems to have an invisible touch, yeah
it takes control and slowly tears you apart


Lastly, Kim Pine...she was on mine. Ramona can eat a dick.

#25 Buffy Summers
   

(42 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #2 TeamRAD
   
Appeal:

Pretty, tough and occasionally scatterbrained but still a great leader.

Bio:

Buffy Summers is a fictional character from Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer franchise. She first appeared in the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer before going on to appear in the television series and subsequent comic book of the same name. The character has also appeared in the spin-off series Angel, as well as numerous non-canon expanded universe material, such as novels, comics, and video games. Buffy was portrayed by Kristy Swanson in the film, and later by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the television series. Giselle Loren has lent her voice to the character in both the Buffy video games and an unproduced animated series.

Buffy is the protagonist of the story, and the series depicts her everyday life as she grows up. In the film, she is a high school cheerleader who learns that she is the Slayer (a Chosen One gifted with the strength and skills to fight vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness). The television series shows Buffy carrying out her destiny in a small town built atop a portal to hell (Hellmouth), surrounded by a group of friends and family who support her in her mission. In the comic book continuation, she is a young woman who has accepted her duties and is now responsible for training others like her. The character of Buffy was created to subvert the stereotypical female horror film victim; Whedon wanted to create a strong female cultural icon.

#24 Clementine Kruczynski
   

(43 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #3 DB Barnes
   
Appeal:

It’s funny, but I don’t remember.

Bio:

Emotionally withdrawn Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and unhinged free spirit Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet) strike up a relationship on a Long Island Rail Road train from Montauk, New York. They are drawn to each other on account of their radically different personalities.

Although they apparently do not realize it at the time, Joel and Clementine are in fact former lovers, now separated after having spent two years together. After a nasty fight, Clementine hired the New York City firm Lacuna, Inc. to erase all her memories of their relationship. (The term "lacuna" means a gap or missing part; for instance, lacunar amnesia is a gap in one's memory about a specific event.) Upon discovering this, Joel is devastated and decides to undergo the procedure himself, a process that takes place while he sleeps.

Much of the film takes place in Joel's mind. As his memories are erased, Joel finds himself revisiting them in reverse. Upon seeing happier times of his relationship with Clementine from earlier in their relationship, he struggles to preserve at least some memory of her and his love for her. Despite his efforts, the memories are slowly erased, with the last memory of Clementine telling him: "Meet me in Montauk".

Wow.  I would've thought Scully would be right up in the top ten.  Perhaps the terrible recent movie kind of soured people on her a bit.

Well, at least you didn't say Beverly Cleary. Mind you, when you consider what that Ramona looks like these days....

YES!!! Of course this comes up right after I'm bitching. To the other person who voted for Clementine, thanks. I like the cut of your jib.

For me, Clementine is the epitome of the adorable kook. I immediately connected with the character because I had a similar experience with a girl who had a radically-different personality. She taught me a lot about life and changed me as a person. I'm lucky to have known her.</sap>

I love everything about this movie; one of my all-time favorites. I love Kate Winslet and this is far and away my favorite character she's played. She's just perfect in a very imperfect way.

It was a late night airing of Techin Muyo the Movie on SciFi channel that got me into anime in college.  I put Ryoko on the list but it could just as easily have been Washuu or Kiyone.   I think I still have a ryo-ohki plush around here some where.

#23 Rogue
   

(43 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #1 BBQ Platypus
   
Appeal:

According to BBQ Platypus: The forbidden fruit angle

Bio:

Rogue is a fictional character in most of the Marvel Comics award-winning X-Men related titles. She was created by author Chris Claremont and artist Michael Golden, and debuted in Avengers Annual #10 (November 1981) as a villain. An earlier story, intended for Ms. Marvel #25 (June 1979) went unpublished until 1992. Rogue was born as a mutant. More so than most, Rogue considers her powers a curse: she involuntarily absorbs and sometimes also removes the memories, physical strength, and (in the case of superpowered persons) the abilities of anyone she touches. For most of her life, this potentially fatal power prevented her from making any physical contact with others, including her on-off love interest, Gambit, but after many years Rogue finally gained full control over her power.

Hailing from Caldecott, Mississippi (a fictional county), Rogue is the X-Men's self-described southern belle. A runaway, she was adopted by Mystique of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and grew up as a villain. After Rogue permanently absorbed Ms. Marvel's psyche andKree powers, she reformed and turned to the X-Men, fearing for her sanity. Writer Chris Claremont played a significant role in the character's subsequent development. Rogue is unusual among the X-Men as her real name and her early history were not revealed until more than twenty years after her introduction. Until the back story provided by Robert Rodi in the ongoing Rogue series began in September 2004, Rogue's background was only hinted at. Her name was revealed as Anna Marie, although her surname is still unknown. She has sometimes been called Raven which is really the first name of her foster mother Mystique.
