Interim Round 50


Or for the purposes of this event, My Ranking Academia :nod

Now, the rules and regulations (Aside from the obvious):
- Nomu and High End are separate characters :tem So by the off chance you want to include them in your ranking, keep this in mind.
- Deceased characters who were not there at the start of the series and only show up in cameos are of course, included. F.e, Shimura Nana.
- Characters from both My Hero Academia movies are eligible for this event, though I can't say I'd remember any if you did include them in your rankings :hmm
- Characters from the side story manga, Vigilantes are also eligible for this event,but again, I'm not sure I'd recognize any of them. Feel free to go all out though.

You can send in all your rankings up till 9th August, 2020. Starting now, you can go ahead and send your lists. Remember, by doing so you are making your own story :verily

Participants so far:

Honest question: is there a big difference between the Winry from Brotherhood anime and the Winry from the manga?
The source material is the best version of the story as is usually the case. Period. Full stop.

So, yeah, Winry is even better in that. Would it change your view of her? Probably not. Afterall the version in Brotherhood is still pretty great. It's just that you get her with the intended pacing intact and with that the full magnitude of what a great supporting character she is. In the manga the Elric brothers go off and get involved in one terrible thing after the other, as with the anime, and each time they come home and there she is. Emotionally grounding them and lifting them back up over and over again. It becomes a reliable cycle.

This creates a sense of real dread when finally, toward the end of the series, she actually gets involved with the Scar situation. Because she is a representation of that normal life they both are seeking to return to. And if that's lost, even if they get their bodies back. They're home will gone. Which is why her decision about what to do regarding Scar is so meaningful. It is a huge emotional moment for the series because it's her.

And Wrath is one of those characters I really hate that isn't on my list but I just couldn't fit him on. Great villain.

So reading the manga wouldn‘t actually change anyone‘s view on Winry who watched Brotherhood already? Just making sure.

Erurikku Kyodai and Roy, but who the hell is the 4th?

Or is this a troll thing and Adolf takes the top?

Why I like Wrath/Bradley so much? Some of the reasons I can list are:

-Has a cool design.
-Probably the most badass character of the whole series. Anytime he appeared everyone shat on their pants because they knew he was a beast and could destroy them in seconds. Even being mortally wounded didn't stop him from being an absolute monster in the battlefield, and nearly killed Scar even when he lost his freaking arms. Dude even won against a fucking tank with only his sword and a grenade. Cannot get more badass than that.
-Related to the point above, despite not having the regenerative abilities of the Homunculi and only having his special eye as a superpower, he managed to kick lots of asses and being one of the best fighters of the manga.
-His fights are some of the bests of the manga/Brotherhood.
-Also the best antagonist of FMA. Ruthless, charismatic, comanding, menacing and even has some sympathetic qualities, traits who make him interesting and very effective as a villain.
-Has pretty good lines.
-Has a pretty good sense of humor (when he got to visit Edward in a Hawaian shirt, anyone?).
-I like how he represents his sin (portraying the tranquil fury aspect of wrath and only unleasing it on his enemies).
-Though he didn't have a good opinion on humans, unlike the other evil Homunculi he never understimated them and even recognized their importance in his life as he died.
-Also, unlike his siblings, he doesn't fucks around and gets to the action without wasting time.
-Great death scene.
-Basically Hitler on steroids. Sounds ridiculous on paper, but is portrayed surprisingly well.

Overall my favorite FMA character, glad he got into the top 5.

Greed fell a bit too soon imo :emobirb

Wrath was the best villain tho.

Also Hawkeye is the easily Top 3 female in the series and much more than just "Roy's waifu" ffs.

Alphonse and Edward are a bit too high, I expected them in the Top 10 but not in the upper ranks.

MangaHelpers's notification system is so whack. I only got notified because I got mentioned during Wrath's ranking, so I missed that the Armstrongs and Riza ranked 8, 7 and 6 respectively.

Oh, well, I voted for Alex and Riza, so, even though I expected it, I'm happy they got into the top 10.
I think it notifies the first five members. You got the Wrath notification because you were one of the first mentioned.
Oh, I think I heard that before. Oh, well, I'll take that in mind for the future. Thank you for responding ^_^

Perhaps a bit tricky to say this around here ... but I genuinely think Wrath is one of best written manga/anime villains of all time. From his staggering backside story, his double-sided character and wrathful outbursts, his 20st century nationalist leader-type of design, to the way he just terrifies you with his speech. Who could ever possibly forget the moment he returned and stormed his own palace to reclaim what was his? Jesus Christ, what a MOMENT!

Yeah reason why i found the scenes with Olivier when he summoned her & Lin fighting him, impressive.


+ lets add, he genuinely cared for his wife, which gives him some depth & somehow some "human" dimension,

I didn't say it wouldn't change anyone's. In fact it would probably boost her in a lot of peoples opinions. Just not yours Gry. Your opinions exist in a dimension all their own separated from the reality in which they exist.

Most likely.

It'll be a lot of effort to change almost all of the ranks from below but at least Izumi got her well-deserved 10th place spot.

@syx's Sakura reveal set the precendent for this kind of gimmick.

King Bradley is the only badass villain who's also effective as a goofy character.

Most badass villains are just edgelords and don't have any kind of fun with them whatsoever, making them a bit dull.

Aokiji is not really a villain so he doesn't count. :grumble

There were times I even prefered when Al was in the spotlight, he gave a different feeling of the rest of the alchemists and his loyalty to Ed was amazing; his constrast with Edward's personality was great and he had some of the best badass moments in the series. :blush

Best boy without a doubt, in any version.
