in animu, it's all down to the hair, eyes, and clothing, nothing else really matters.
i guess that doesn't matter because most anime characters can be boiled down to a handful of archetypes.
The hot boiled over-the-top person
The uber shy silent one
The badass silent one
The thinking and planning person
The hulk always-angry one
The kawaiiii need-moar-desu~ one
The serious stoic
The fat and slim duo
The evil taunter
The silent but evil as fuck one
The dumb as a rock one, who is usually a minion or the person who survives every single tragedy
The batshit insane childish killer one
The crazy chessmaster
The troubled guy
The sexy one who doesn't know/think he/she's sexy
The genius inventor
The one who reached nirvana and meditates and has psychic powers and usually mentors others
The parent who has like 3 appearances in the whole anime
The badass grandparent
The bland one who has 5 lines in the whole series
And last but not least, the Hikkikomori
Have I gotten all of them right?
