I'm going with the flame alchemist on this one.
I won't like Mustang if he's the main character in the manga but I adore him as the supporting, more than L. L may be smart, a genius even but Roy is not about to lose to him, he have his brains and tactics. To be honest, without him planning most of the things out, Ed&El will be fighting a losing battle. L didn't have much character development as Mustang the way I see it. I guess one of the reason is because he died halfway. But Roy have developed quite alot throughout the series. He have a dream of becoming the Fuhrer, and his own story of hatred towards envy, a interesting backstory and he even have a group of well written characters under him. One of the biggest characteristic he had was that he never let the blindness got to him! None of this did L show throughout Death Note, but I guess it's because that is how the story is s'pose to be in DN.
Even if L might be considered as more important than an ordinary minor character, he's still in the list, and the best made character of it deserves to win. Which imo really is L (followed by Askeladd).
He's such a funny, likeable, crazy, intelligent guy, even the way he holds a phone makes me laugh
Askeladd easily gets this one.He is a round character and a great one at that.He feels so incredibly real,but what actually makes him the best supporting character is that he had a huge impact on the protagonist's and other's life.A truly remarkable character.
