Died of a broken heart - when your crush would rather be in an incestual relationship than settle down with you...




Ah, good old Sakura.
If ever there was a wasted character, she was surely it.

As the manga progressed, all 3 of the main characters (yes, I include her in this list - though, perhaps I shouldn't) were seen to grow and develop. They each followed on in the footsteps of the famous, legendary, Sannin - and were equally interesting, as a result of that...

... or so it should have been.

Naruto and Sasuke did indeed follow in the footsteps of Jiraiya and Orochimaru, respectively.
Sakura, however, was not so lucky.

Sure, she did learn Tsunade's techniques (becoming, pretty much, a clone of her) but that was where her character stopped developing.

She was the manga's chance at a strong female character - a goal which might have been achieved under any other mangaka.

It was such a waste.

Then we have her infatuation with a guy who flat-out hated her (how anyone is meant to buy her ending up, and having a kid, with him beggars belief [I really thought Sasuke would die celibate - as befitted his character])
The guy tells her, to her face, that he hates her - she doesn't bat an eyelid
The guy leaves her, without a word of goodbye, and then runs away whenever she gets close - she takes this as him playing hard to get
The guy tries to murder her, all to stop her following him - she really can't take the hint
The guy mind-fucks her with Tsukuyomi - she must, surely, be a masochist to want to end up with a dick like this?!?

She is even willing to lie to one of her best friends - a man she knows loves her (though, why, I'm not sure - if I recall correctly, it's got something to do with her forehead?!?)

So
- uniqueness is 0
- emotional complexity is 0
- how good a role-model she is is 0

I mean, Hinata also made a showing in these rankings. But Hinata, for all her faults, has about as strongly developed character as Sakura.
Also, more importantly, Hinata was never one of the 3 main characters.
AND, Naruto, as much as he ignored her, was never a dick to Hinata.

At least Kishimoto never tried to make Sakura into an object of sexual desire - as some mangakas do with their female characters
- that truly would have been fucking painful to read...

Guess it's my turn to steal Peggy's game
  1. Make a top 10 list, to suit the category.
  2. PM that list to the host (ordered from 1 [the top of the list] all the way to 10 [the bottom of the list])
  3. Wait for the host to order all the lists and assign scores to the picks
  4. Rage as someone's shitty, off the cuff, choice beats your awesome, well chosen, one
Pics are scored as follows
1 point for 10th place on anyone's list, 2 for 9th, 3 for 8th... all the way to 10 points for 1st place.
so, if two people picked Itachi Uchiha for their lists of most boring characters in Shonen series - ranking him 1st and 3rd, for example - then he would receive a score of 18 [10 for the 1st place and 8 for the 3rd place].

The host, for this round, is none other than yours truly
I have made a list of the possible categories for this round, please pick up to 3 and I will break ties.

The list will be open until Sunday night - then you will have 1 week to post me the top 10's (and tag the shit out of anyone you think might/might not want to play [customary tags of gnut are obviously very much required])

I'll pick worst anime/manga characters, anime/animation and movies. Seems the kind of list that I'll have enough of it, especially the former, so we could see just how hated Kirito is in general :lambirb

I imagine the answer won't surprise many people.

As usual, any explanations for choices [in PM - preferably in interpretive dance form] will be appreciated and may be included in the rankings (if amusing/well articulated/the choice is of a suitably high ranking)

@zimbardo characters deaths is a great idea voted for this, as much as im fine with it, isnt a risk of being spoilerish ?
also does character deaths thing is about all fictions or manga/anime only, bc if it s for all fictions isnt it a little bit too broad ? manga /anime (+possibly video games ) sounds to me a reasonable size)

i have an issue with worst music in anime, i actually only notice good tracks, if they re not good my brain just ignore them :errr, i can only tell stuff like "oh but this track is misused, here , imo" or "in this scene they should have used a more impactful/emotional track" :arf

Sure, it does run that risk.

Guess if that wins, I will have to find a suitable way to get around that minor niggle... even if it's as simple as just having the name, then spoilering in the slow process of their pitiful demise

... though, people playing the game will probably realise that they play at their own risk [with a category like that].

Manga and anime is probably best.

Anime and manga are both chocked full of terrible characters!
Let's celebrate that joyous fact with a nice ranking from bad to worst.

Theme: Worst Characters in Anime and Manga

As this is but a mere interim for an interim, you guys probably only will need a week, at most, to come up with lists with more obvious forethought than was put into the characters contained within them [your lists].

Now, I won't stop people from posting that they are in. However, just because you say you are playing, doesn't mean that you don't have to PM me a list.
Should you wish to PM me a list and not advertise your willingness to join in, that's ok too.

Reasons for choices, although not a necessity, are more than appreciated.

Arguments about why someone's choice of a bad character is wrong - and how actually Royd Lloyd is a fantastic character, perfectly designed and totally devoid of faults - are important to a healthy thread.

Rage is an absolute necessity

Unless something comes up, I die, or someone thinks up a good reason why I shouldn't [stop], I will stop accepting PMs on the 11th - and start posting rankings soon after.

  1. Make a top 10 list, to suit the category.
  2. PM that list to the host (ordered from 1 [the top of the list] all the way to 10 [the bottom of the list])
  3. Wait for the host to order all the lists and assign scores to the picks
  4. Rage as someone's shitty, off the cuff, choice beats your awesome, well chosen, one
Pics are scored as follows
1 point for 10th place on anyone's list, 2 for 9th, 3 for 8th... all the way to 10 points for 1st place.
so, if two people picked Itachi Uchiha for their lists of most boring characters in Shonen series - ranking him 1st and 3rd, for example - then he would receive a score of 18 [10 for the 1st place and 8 for the 3rd place].

The host, for this round, is none other than yours truly

Deadline: [some undisclosed time] on the 11th

As a small side-note
I begun to compile (sort and wrestle with) all the previous top 10 lists.

It's a rather large job, but I think the stats might be fun (statistics are always fun, amirite?!?)

Here's a little teaser using the first top 10 list we ever did
The circles represent the position of each film that the user chose - the vertical bar denotes the average [mean] position that the user's chosen films scored (and obviously, I'm sure you all know that the horizontal bars denote the standard deviation from the mean)


... for those who don't quite 'get' it: The further to the right the user's vertical bar is, the more unique their choices [of films] tended to be

Stats :zomg

That does seem like a huge task but I’m sure we’d all like to see it.

When you are going through all the previous games and just can't make the maths work...
... seems that BluePegasus might have missed Farfalla's number 3 and Belserion's number 2 picks off the live-action scripted TV shows rankings
:gwah

I guess it'd probably be too much hassle for you guys to help fix this minor issue?

Will extend submissions until a week after Faust has finished his round
Faust was quick, efficient, direct, just how I like it!

Deadline not extended - you have until [some undisclosed time] on the 11th.

... though, please don't let that stop you submitting/planning lists
:invalid

Yeah, am pretty sure

That's the actresses/actors list - I meant for the 2nd round, the live action TV shows

Unless you were trying to link to posts 4741849 and 4736328?
But those show Farfy's number 8 and Belserion's numbers 5, 7, 8 and 9 - not Farfy's 3 or Belserion's 2

Ah, you meant points instead of positions. Both @Farfalla and @Belserion gave those scores to Dexter, and you're right it wasn't included in the full list as it was supposed to be here (I've edited it in now). Good catch! My perfectionism failed me.
