  • Fandom Post -Female Anime Character Ranking-

    Widgets Magazine
    I've decided to port this ranking over from the old forums. All the lists from the old thread are being kept, so you don't have to worry about reposting your list here unless you want to update it. If you've change your username, though, please PM or reply here with your old and new names, so that I can avoid errors in the database.

    A lot of the guidelines are based on or directly copied from Fudce's Most Wanted and Moe Moe Taiga's Top 10 thread, so I'd like to thank them for all the work they've done and useful precedents created.

    Posting a New List

    * Include a note stating that you are posting a new list.
    * List your top 10 favorite female anime characters.
    * With every character you list, include an Anime News Network ID number for the first series your character appeared in (Which can be found here. Search for the series your character first appeared in. It's the number at the end of the URL.)
    * Rank your characters from #1 to #10.

    Use this format for posting each character:

    <Rank Number>. Character Name (Series Name) #<ANN Number> (Optional comments)

    Example:

    06. Claes (Gunslinger Girl) #2947 (You may post comments here, but keep the entire entry and comments to a single line.)

    Updating Your List

    * Don't edit your post. Make a new one when updating your list.
    * Include a note stating that you are updating your previous list.
    * If possible, include your previous list. You may do this in any form you choose, but the easiest way is to hit the QUOTE button on your previous list.
    * Try to avoid quoting multiple old lists in one post. If necessary when quoting your list, delete all of the quote except your previous list.

    Ranking

    * For your list, #1 will be given 10 points, #2 will be given 9 points, and so on.

    Eligibility

    * Only characters that have appeared in anime are eligible.
    * Only female characters are eligible.
    * Any kind of anime (TV anime, movie, OVA, ONA, etc) are eligible.
    * Characters from anime that have not yet been broadcast, streamed, released theatrically, or released on home video (basically, only announced yet) are not eligibl
    * This is an "all-time" ranking; eligible characters will never stop being eligible.

    Anime News Network Numbers

    * When posting any character, remember to include the Anime News Network ID number of the first series that character appeared in.
    * Always affix a number sign (#) before ANN numbers, like so: "#9139"
    * When a character has appeared in multiple series, use the ANN number of the first series the character appeared in. If you're unsure about this, search the thread for other lists with the same character and see what number those use: the most important thing is consistency.
    * To find an ANN ID number for any anime, first find that anime at AnimeNewsNetwork.com's encyclopedia.
    * If it is eligible you can find the ID number in the address bar. It is the number at the end of the URL. .../anime.php?id=9139
    * When posting a new character, remember to always double check that you have the ANN ID number right. I may not always catch typos.

    Other Information

    * The list will be updated periodically, at least once per month.
    * If you are flagged as having an ineligible or incorrectly numbered character on your list, please change it as soon as possible.

    FAQ

    Q: Can I use character's nicknames?
    A: If you use a character's nicknames, always include as much of the character's full name as is known. For example: "Taiga 'Palmtop Tiger' Aisaka" is acceptable. "Palmtop Tiger" by itself is not acceptable.

    Q: What naming order should I use for first names and surnames?
    A: Either Western or Japanese naming order is acceptable in posted lists. The compiled list will use original name order.

    Q: What if a character is known by one name early in the series, and another name later on?
    A: Use the first name the character is known by.

    Q: What does it mean for a character to have "appeared" in an anime?
    A: To "appear" in an anime they must either have: at least one speaking line OR be identifiable by sight.

    Q: Are characters of an indeterminate gender eligible?
    A: Characters that are "potentially female" are eligible. However, the definition of "potentially female" is up to my discretion.

    Q: Can I use spoilers over names, ANN numbers, and series names in my posted list?
    A: Yes, you can use spoilers wherever you want in your posted list. Certain characters on the compiled list will include spoilers if I feel there's a general community demand for it.

    Q: I have another question you haven't answered.
    A: Please ask me about it on this thread or via private message.

    Tiebreakers

    Tiebreaker's are "passion based," favoring characters strongly loved by a few over characters liked by many.

    Level 1. If characters are tied, they are compared based on their highest vote. For example, a character with votes giving 10, 6, and 2 points would rank higher than one with votes giving 8, 5, 3, and 2 points even though they both had 18 total points.

    Level 2. If characters are still tied, they are compared based on the sum of the square values of all their votes. Squaring gives more favor to high votes. For example, a character with votes giving 10, 7, and 3 points would rank higher than one with votes giving 10, 5, 3, and 2 points, even though they both had 20 total points. The first character would have a sum of 158 (100+49+9), while the second would have a sum of 138 (100+25+9+4).

        Here's the old thread for reference. It should probably be in the first post so people can find their old lists easier.

        And hey, I think I accidentally had a part in this ranking making its way over to the new forum. Cool!

        Oh, and to play devil's advocate, wouldn't the first anime the Clannad girls were in technically be the movie? Not that I have any desire to list that as the anime Nagisa is from.

          Good idea, I'll add a link.

          Yeah, it does seem to have an earlier release date. But I'll say that: People can use the ANN number of a later work if they specifically prefer the later work's incarnation of the character. It could be said that Movie Nagisa and TV Nagisa are different enough to be different characters.

          Plus, I don't think Fuuko appeared in the movie, or Kotomi had any spoken lines.

            Yeah, I think that's a good way of looking at it. Post the ANN number of a later work if that version is really so much better, but stick with the earlier one otherwise. That way we won't have to credit the Clannad movie as being the anime the Clannad girls are from (and you're correct about Fuuko and Kotomi, although the latter would still be eligible going by your guidelines), but there won't be a bunch of different numbers for the same anime. And for something like Clannad, of course everyone (or at least almost everyone) will choose the series, so there won't be the problem of characters falling lower on the list than their votes should indicate because of different ANN numbers.

            It is weird to look at people's MAL favorite character list and see Clannad characters (other than Fuuko) listed as being from the Clannad movie.
