Homura Akemi probably got her way on this list.
And Utena Tenjo. Cause sometimes you need a 14 year old in bike shorts that makes Optimus Prime look like a wuss.
Yeah, not a lot of dudes on that list. Male anime protagonists tend to be... well... bland. I mean, I may not like the character, but I give Attack on Titan this: In's an action show with a male lead that actually has a personality. Sure he burns with rage, but it's directed, and dude *does* have a life outside his issues. Speaking of which, Mikasa comes close to making the list, if only for being a female action protagonist that falls outside most of the typical characteristics of such.
