The main character you love to hate

Usually the main character is the character you're supposed to love and root for. The one who can do no wrong in your eyes. But sometimes that is just not the case. There are just some out there that are so bad that I'd wish for them to be killed off by their foe. I don't care if that would ruin the story or defeat the purpose of the show. One that pops up right off the top of my head would be Inuyasha from the series of the same name. At the beginning of the series I thought he was an okay guy with a tragic past. He was only slightly annoying with his stubborn and aggressive attitude. But as the series continued, I really started to hate him. His character doesn't seem to mature at all. That shard hunting group has been traveling forever but this guy is still the bone headed guy from the beginning of the series. The fact that he is this indecisive guy that pines after this dead corpse instead of paying attention to the living girl doesn't help his case at all. I honestly wished that Sesshoumaru or even Naraku would have killed him off and put him out of his misery. Another main character that I didn't like was Miaka from Fushigi Yugi. How the heck does this girl have so many guys falling for her? It just doesn't make sense. You would think that her weak and whiny personality would drive them away. But no...she draws them in like honey or something. I'm not too fond of weak, whiny and useless female leads and she fits that bill. It seems like every time I glanced at the screen, this girl got herself into some mess and had to be rescued by one of her guardians. I guess the only redeeming thing was that we hardly saw her in the Eikoden OVA which was a good thing. So, who are some of the main characters that you don't like? And why?

The discussions you create doesn't fail to entertain me :)). Anyway, as for the character I really love to hate, it should be these two: Naruto Sakura Well, I really can't blame them...I have to blame the mangakas who created them. My friends who are really addicted to naruto and *ehem* sakura, they would usually say, "Really??? Why Of all the anime characters to hate?". Really, if naruto gets any stronger, the world will get destroyed and he is already strong enough to be that err, what do you call that again?? I think it was the Hokage or something like that. It's obvious from the start that he will get that position in the future (that's the reason why he's the main character, right?). BUT, quite unfortunately, he still doesn't have that position just for the sake of not ending the anime. And for the-all- mighty Sakura, URGH. She got two years of training...but everytime I get to peek at an episode from Naruto, I always see her get beaten up. And what does she do? Shout out loud Naruto and Sasuke's name. Sorry for my long rant .

Haha...while you're at it you might as well add Sasuke to that list. That whole crew was annoying in some way. I've got to say that out of the three Naruto was the least one I hated even though he was really annoying and loud. I've pretty much ranted about Sasuke in another discussion but I really can't stand this guy. He's broody, obsessive, and really self-centered. There were so many times that I wished for him to be killed off in the series. Sakura is just plain annoying. I don't care how strong she's gotten in Shippuuden. She'll always be remembered as that annoying fangirl who couldn't do anything and sucked up to Sasuke. N

oops...I accidently hit the post button before finishing... Anyways, Naruto wears ORANGE! What self respecting ninja goes around in such a bright color screaming off the top of their head that they'd be Hokage. I know I wouldn't trust someone like that being my leader no matter what.

LOL. You accidentally hitted the post button because of excitement XD. It seems like we don't run out of things to hate on Naruto. And yeah!!! What kind of Ninja wears bright, neon Orange??? ROFL. I can't add sasuke on my list even if I wanted to. I know, some fangirls are reading this, and they might attack me with the "screaming fangirl" chakra. Imo, he doesn't have any importance in the series. If Naruto will end, it will also be the same for Sasuke.

japanese goku and his girly voice, early naruto (he gets better), kyon from suzumiya haruhi because I just don't like him, usagi from sailor moon cause she freaking annoying, kuniko from shangri-la same reason as kyon, jaden/judai from yugioh gx and asuka from neon genesis evangelion, they're just annoying...

That's quite a list of annoying characters you got there. I'm going to agree with some of those but I don't think they are annoying enough to reach my hate list. I'm just surprised you didn't mention Shinji from NGE. He seems to be at the top on a lot of people's hate list.

nah I liked him...he was appropriately serious for a serious show, I liked NGE generally, IMO asuka is the one that didn't fit in there...too damn noisy

A very interesting question indeed. If Sakura from Naruto is considered a main character, then yes, she's the one I hate the most. Haha I really don't like her and her personality in the series. I agree about Miaka. She's not pretty at all to begin with. Haha.

Hahaha...it's been a while since I posted this so I'm surprised that you responded. Even after these years I still don't like these two females...Sakura maturing a bit after the timeskip didn't even change my opinion of her. She still rubs me the wrong way for some reason.
