    Re: Best Female Lead

    I only really know three of them. Ouran just isn't my cup of tea, and I'll stay as far away from it as I can. I've only read first chapter of Claymore long ago, so I can't say anything on Claire, but she certainly didn't make a impact right at the bat, which is really important for a lead character in my opinion.

    Nausicaä is amazing. Has that strong will of Miyazaki heroines. Caring, likes to learn, and doesn't really judge anyone and tries her best to understand the point of view of others, even the guys everyone else condems. And heck of an battler and flier. Very brave. Overall rate A character. But misses just something, flaws maybe?

    Revy is just amazing, but in a completly different way than Nausicaä. Hot, crazy mercenary lady. Her fighting skill is just amazing, and her insaness makes her funny too. The thing is, she has mainly entertainment value. She can't be taken too seriously, though she has sad past too, and is in her way a touching character. Much of this however comes from her chemistry with Rock, and this is a solo contest.

    Gally gets my vote easily. Epitome of character developement. For me the greatest personal growing journey of a character ever. Situation might change though, when current arc in Vinland Saga ends. Or I get on with Berserk. The beautifull cyborg who learns things about life always the hard way is just loveable. And he kicks bad guys ass too. Actually, she is strangely similar to Nausicaä, just more extreme and violent.

    No contest for me here. I vote for Gally without even thinking about it.
    Revy is second place. She is awesome ... but she is essentially a lara croft ripoff for design.

    I second with Gally. This is the best female lead from all the nominations. Ustegius described it at its best. Gunnm/Gunnm Last order is a very good read and this is definitely thanks to Gally. Gally is a reason enough to read this manga. I had my doubts with Revy, it is a close call but well, Gally wins with a millimetre let's say

    Re: Best Female Lead

    Clare from Claymore is the choice here, no character is as deep, complex, "troubled/disturbed", and lovable as Clare. She's such a greatly developed character, that you literally fall in love with and will find yourself cheering and crying along with her! And oh does she struggle! Always the underdog... You know how like with most mangas... hero is weak. hero get's pwned. hero gets magical power up. hero pwns. hero gets pwned. hero gets magic power up.. over and over. Well, Clare's not like that! she's always struggling and is just barely winning her battles... or just barely surviving/staying alive for that matter! the few "power ups" she gets, she earns or pays a heavy cost, they're very well done, very respectably. Unlike the "magical" power ups that come out of no where from many other nameless mangas...

    And for all you guys+girls who don't know Claymore, it's very hardcore brutal serious. Clare is the female version of Guts/Gatsu from Berserk. The Claymore warriors in Claymore are all "business" which is "ruthless killing machines" (they're not actually machines though, just using the phrase of it. Claymore warriors are "living weapons").

    Revy's awesome, but she doesn't even come close to Clare. Clare is so amazing on so many levels! and...

    Re: Best Female Lead

    I have no doubts all the girls in this award category are amazing; however, my vote for this category goes to Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club. I’m voting for her because 1) She is the only girl among the group who comes from a Shojou manga and that alone is pretty awesome and speaks for itself. 2) I like her personality; for instance she is cute without being overly sweet or sugary, she is smart but she is not arrogant, she is kind but she is not afraid of speaking her mind, and many other characteristics that make her a great girl in my eyes.
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!
