    Default Anti-hero

    Hey , i was just wondering if there is any good anime out there in which the main character is not your traditional goody-good guy , and is actually evil or unconventional. Any genre will do.
    So far the only ones ive seen that fit into it are Desert Punk and Gantz...

    Oh I've got the greatest anti hero in existence for you. Only thing is though, most of the series is only in manga form. Only the first session (which sets up his personality to become the anti hero has been animated as of yet). Im talking about Berserk. One of the darkest and most horrifying manga out there.

    Forget both the posts mentioned above (No offense to them btw).

    The best one to watch is one of my favorite anime ever it's called 'One Outs', it's set in the world of Japanese PRO baseball (So no annoying little kids), but if you dislike baseball do not worry this anime is all about how much of a fricking badass the main character is.

    Also here's a couple of popular mainstream ones 'Death Note', 'Code Geass'.
    But if you do decided to watch all three then make sure to watch the first one I mentioned you won't be left disappointed.

    have you even read Berserk that you think you can justify saying that?

    Ill be sure to watch One Outs. And while i have watched Code Gueass and Death Note , i don't consider Lelouch or Light to be anti-heroes , since in the end , they are fighting for what they consider is good. A good example of an anti-hero is a guy that fights for himself , for profit , and isnt always trying to save the world and stuff.

    No I haven't and I was just joking when I said to forget about it, I just wanted the guy to experience the badassery of the main character from One Outs ASAP.

    Would definitely have to say Golgo 13 would fit here. Not only is he anything but a goody-two-shoes character, the episodes are each one-off stories of awesome so you can literally pick up anywhere and not have to worry about whether or not you're missing anything.

    And I'll second the suggestion of Berserk, which is going to be getting some movies soon to continue the story.
    I know violence isn't the answer. It's the question, and the answer is yes.

  10. Thanks Munchman thanked for this post
