Day 26: Favourite Male Protagonist.
This challenge has definitely made it clear just how indecisive I am around this notion of favourites. Choosing one over all the others is actually really hard (and I am dreading Day 30).
Ultimately I’m going to go with a character that made me feel so much for him on his journey, who I wanted to pick up and hug, offer a word of support to, and then run the other direction so whatever horrible thing was about to happen to him never happened to me. Of course I am talking about Allen Walker from D Gray Man.
Nice guy but avoids the trap of having that as his only personality trait. Very powerful but in no way overpowered given the enemies (and even the allies) around him. Everything about Allen is fantastic and this is a character I desperately want to be victorious one day but I kind of feel he’s a walking tragedy so I won’t hold my breath.
I did consider quite a few other characters including Ciel in Black Butler, Natsume from Natsume Yuujinchou, Rei from March Comes in Like a Lion, and even Sadou Maou from the Devil is a Part Timer.
Who is your favourite male protagonist and why? Please share in the comments below.

At the moment, it’s Yuri Katsuki from Yuri on Ice. I haven’t been this charmed by a protagonist in quite some time. He’s very relatable in some ways.
He was a very relatable protagonist.
Allen walker is pretty awesome. I can’t think of one because male characters are my favorite. And there are wayyy too many to narrow down. Ughhh
This is a really tough one. I do love Allen and Natsume and Ciel. There’s also Ginko from Mushishi, Gintoki from Gintama, Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Atushi from Bungou Stray Dogs….. For the sake of simplicity I’ll just choose Harlock because he was my first anime crush.
Hm, as usual this is hard. Though this time it’s because my favourite male ones aren’t really MC in Anime yet. So, I’ll go with Hikigaya Hachiman from Oregairu. His way of thinking revolutionized me. As soon as Heaven’s Feel gets out, my choice will probably change to Emiya Shirou though.
Aww… Allen *hearts*
I need to re-read DGM. With all the hiatus the manga has been through, I feel lost with the updates. And I haven’t watched Hallow yet. OTL
I love Natsume, too! Ahh, I admire you because I can never do something like this. (Or I want to but I’m just too lazy to take up the challenge.) I think I’m even more indecisive than you. For this one, I can’t choose among Natsume, Yato, Edward Elric, Midoriya Izuku, or Sawamura Eijun.
Hallow is cool but still just kind of leaves you hanging, not to mention you have to adjust to the new character designs.
Yato would be a nice pick. Good options.
Oh… I’m used to DGM’s ever-changing character designs. It feels like every time Hoshino-sensei comes out of hiatus, the characters are born anew, too, because something changed in their looks. Though of course, they look better, especially Allen. 😀
Haha, I’m sure I’ve said this before but Allen will always be my favourite too! I wish I could give him a hug! I can’t help but feel for him and his poor tragic life. Glad to find someone who feels the same~
Allen definitely needs a hug.
