Changing post vote to Erwin
If I may interject? I really wouldn't say L is "manly". He's incredibly smart and cunning, sure, but his masculinity in general leaves much to be desired.
If anything, he's more of a soft-spoken, emaciated, semi-effeminate slouch. He also resorts to doing some rather questionable things (albeit for the right reason) in order to catch Kira.
That's just my two cents, though.

Alright people time to GET BENT, because we need to have ourselves a serious heart to heart about Kanji Tatsumi.
Kanji is about as traditional tough guy biker dude rebel you'd see in a lot of media. He acts tough and violent with the intention of attacking those who get in his way. However he is more than meets the eye.
His claim to rebellion fame was when he went after a biker gang and attacked them, when the reality of the situation was that he was trying to go after them as they were disturbing his mother at home. He struggles to find out who he is or what he is, often in a state of denial about what he wants to be or what others see him as, but after his encounter with his true self he begins to accept and admit who he really is. He opens up about his passions and hobbies, while simultaneously being a tough guy who would definitely stand his own in a fight. However, he TRULY does care for his family and friends and wants to protect them and help them out in any way he can.
And for that, Kanji Tatsumi is truly a man among men. Both of my votes go to him.
Posted vote goes to Erwin Smith.
Here is why I think L is everything a man should be. L is a staunch believer in justice, and goes up against criminals, serial killers, and terrorists, solving cases that no one else could. L even put his own life on the light to fight a psychotic serial killer who can kill at a mere whim. L may not be physically strong, but he still fights for the innocent, seeking to bring justice to the world.
! And in the end, L gave his life for that cause. Standing up for what he knew was right, no matter the cost. If that isn't manly, I don't know what is.
