    What makes the anime character the exterior or interior.

    Some people may read this topic and not Know what i am talking about so i will clearify my questoin.Do anime fans fall in love with the design of the character or the dramatic story that follows them?I personally like the story and background of the character seeing as it adds a feel to the characters alrady awesome exterior.But I'm really interested in seeing what you think.If I'm going to be a comic book writer I'll need to know others opinion on the matter.

    Usually the story, not the design. That, at least, was my experience with Fullmetal Alchemist, though Irresponsible Captain Tylor drew me in more just because of the concept. In general, though, I'd say both - but more usually the story.

    I think it has to be both. If the character is well designed but lacks a good background/story people would lose interest quickly and vise versa. For you to get the most peoples attention and get a fan base you have to have a good design and story. That just my oppinion. Yea if I spelled anything wrong I'm sorry. I'm a horrible speller.

    I agree. Some anime you see out there has fantastic art, but weak characters and an even paler storyline. If there isn't a good plot and interesting, in depth characters--then the anime is really not worth watching (or reading if you think about manga). The characters and their story is what makes the anime or manga great--though unique art is what makes it all the better.

    A case study for character design vs. character personality would be a comparison of 'Saber Marionette' series and 'Cyberteam in Akihabera'. Both series had simular character designs done by the same designer. But the first series, with the main character 'Lime' voiced by Megumi Hayashibara (Rei of Evangelion, Lina Inverse of Slayers) was a hit success, while the second series is forgetable... Clearly, it was the character personality and the story that made the difference...

    (Note: I didn't like the character design of either series, but the story of 'Saber Marionette' makes it a must see anime series...)

    Re: What makes the anime character the exterior or interior.

    Well, it would depend coz ppl do like certain characters for their interiors rather then their exterior designs. But personally i love the character designs for Samurai X and Shadow Skills. Especially Seito Hajime looking so cool n has a scary interior

    Thanks for the siggy Ky-lyrra
