#1 Nakiami (Bōnen no Xamdou)

Nakiami is a girl with tragic past who strives to find her own path. Although we know very little about her childhood, it is clear that she changed significantly over the years. Nakiami is an altruistic person, and one of the few people who truly understand the sanctity of all life.

Voice actor Yuko Sanpei expressed her calm and collected personality quite well. Nakiami rarely smiles. In fact, her name, given to her by Ishuu, is derived from naki yame (no more tears) because she used to cry often, enduring much hardship and pain as a child.

  1. Sadly, I only know two of the characters on your list so it’s hard to say whether I’d agree with the choices. (T_T)

    Personally, I’d award Best Ensemble Cast to the five main characters of Toradora! – they hardly ever fail to crack me up. Favourite characters (in no particular order): Minorin, Ryuuji, Taiga, Tomoya, Hime (mainly because of that awesome scarf), Nagi, and I suppose Takako.

    1. Well, most of the characters on my list are from relatively unpopular shows.

      Oh yeah, I liked the energetic attitude of Minorin 🙂 It was depicted quite well in this AMV 😛

      I assume Hime is that girl with a long scarf from Y. Quartet anime. I liked color design in that show, and that long scarf opened up many possibilities for nice animation 🙂

  2. OMG..I DID NOT HEED YOUR WARNING IN ANOTHER POST ABOUT SEBASTIANS PICTURES..You’re right..they have an effect alright..*swoons*

    These are perfect, simply gorgeous, you caught his sexy, mischievous, smug, almost devilishly good looks lol I could go on!
    Thank you!

  3. Edgar and Sebastian are the best. Although Sebastian > Edgar.
    I’ve only watched Kuroshitsuji, Earl and Fairy and Tytania from that list though.
