TV Tokyo (ended 1996)
According to the delivery of Valentine's Day chocolates, Yuu Watase surmised that the characters ranked as followed:
Personally, I'm a total Tasuki fangirl. My favorite character image song is "Heart ni KIRAboshi Sakashi-tare (followed by "Mizu-Kagami) which I try to sing (keyword there is try - my Japanese is terrible and it only gets worse if I'm trying to go fast). I like all of the other warriors just fine, but Tasuki just really makes me happy.
Nuriko first. For being everything and yet completely impossible to define. Even death doesn't get him down - he's Miaka's big sister, Tamahome's big brother, and he's just so cool. Nuriko will always rank number one with me
Tasuki second. Noone can ever hate Tasuki, I don't think...and the second OVA made me love him *almost* as much as Nuriko. Almost. Not quite. But his voice is fantastic. I could listen to Hayashi Nobutoshi all day...
(Can't understand a blind word he says, mind you, because his accent is so thick...oh well, you can't win em all...)
Hotohori third. Because he;s beautiful And because I like how sweet he is.Plus his sword happy valour amuses me. If I had to pick a Seishi to settle down with it would probably be Hotohori. Even without the Empire. He's a family man.
Mitsukake fourth. Nobody loves Mitsukake, it seems, but me. I do I think he's really sweet and the things he says and does are so touching.His entire existance is about healing minds, hearts, bodies, souls, even without his powers. And his sacrifice is tragic yet sweet.
Probably it's Chichiri after Mitsukake. I like him best of all when he's messing around with Tasuki or just complementing Mitsukake. I like how he has multiple sides to him but it took a while for me to really get into him.
I like the manga Chiriko. I'm not sure about the anime one. He doesn't do much. Tamahome doesn't really bother me either way. He makes a good foil for Miaka, and all that. And he's amusing when coupled with one of the above mentioned, particularly Tasuki.
Of the Seiryuu, I like Amiboshi, I'm sympathetic towards Nakago at times and Suboshi at times.
And I really, really dislike Ash'tare No prizes for guessing why... (the censor even tried to bleep out his name. How stupid...so I've used an apostrophe instead. Grr...he might be vile but his name isnt a swear word...)
After watching the series for the FIFTY BILLIONTH time (not alone, mind you) I have rearranged a bit. Not much.
I can't decide who I like better. Whee!!!
Then the MANGA Hotohori, close behind. I think it's stupid how they made him all boring and...boring in the anime, and I didn't care much for him, but I fell in love with him after reading volume one (which is the only one I've read, besides volume 17, which is the only one I've bought ). He's so funny, lol. And I love the faces he makes.
Then comes Nakago. I hated him and willed him to burn in hell for a while, but...what can I say. He grew on me. XD
And thennnnnn is Suboshi and Soi. I feel really bad for them, but I luvs them. Then Amiboshi.
Tamahome and Miaka are still somewhere wayyyyy down at the bottom, Yui is somewhere in the middle, and Ash'tare is and always will be the lowest.
