2014 Best Anime Character Tournament : Round 3 : Ladd Russo vs. Accelerator
Posted votes count!
I vote for Ladd Russo.
Voting for Ladd - rarely do you have fun watching a villain in action.
Ladd is gonna make sausage out of Accelerator.
Accelerator is the better written character, but Ladd is definitely the more enjoyable. Decisions, decisions.
Eh, I'll go with Accelerator. Ladd won the Villains tournament, and I feel he's made it far enough here. Besides, Accelerator, I feel, is the true star of Index. He (and Misaka) make Index. And while Ladd is great, if he weren't in Baccano, while it would definitely be less fun overall, the show wouldn't really suffer for it. In Baccano, everyone is the star, some more so than others. But remove Accelerator from Index and what do you get? A show not worth remembering. For a character to almost singlehandedly salvage an entire series despite not being the main character, that deserves credit.
Accelerator. I feel he's the better character, and once again I have to agree with Heavenspiercing. He and Misaka are what make that series worth watching. Remove them, and I wouldn't have made it through the first season of Index. Plus, I really love how Accelerator has changed over the two seasons, he's come a long way from who he was when he was first introduced, and while it's hard for him, he keeps going and trying. Ladd is just one in a whole cast of main characters and oddballs. Sure, he's entertaining, but so is everybody else.
