I would have to say that the most popular now-a-days would be Tsundere and Moe.

Yandere is also getting more popular, though.
Well anyways, there are a lot. o uo

Ahaha, it's not exactly a split personality, more like split moods. That character's usually angry and irritable (the tsun of tsundere), but because of something (like talking to their crush), that character becomes all shy and sweet (the dere of tsundere). It could be the reverse way too. You could read more about it and examples at Tvtrope's page, because Tvtropes is awesomeee.

I actually like the selfish ones. Selfish ones might be.. well, selfish. But I think it's nice they at least know what they REALLY want. Sure, it's not good to selfish, but still.. But I am not into the "moe" characters. Cute, Clumsy, kind of air-headed. I don't like it much because it's so over done now-a-days. :/

But I have to agree with the fact that "Tsundere" and "Moe" is popular.

I find the ones that are most hated are the really annoying ones, the ones that you want to send in first in case of the zombie apocalypse Te-he!

Yandere is a person who is overly obsessed with someone to the point were they would do ANYTHING it get them (If it means killing people or even killing him)

They usually seem normal at first.

Mmm... I kinda agree... People like characters that stand out, whether it is because they are overly one thing or another, as in one extreme or another... It is also how they are depicted, for example most people don't like a "normal" character, with no real character flaws and no pros either, but if he is described by himself or others as "a person who's only remarkable quality is being quite unremarkable" then people begin to be interested... Overall it's trying to get to the viewers something they don't see in their everyday lives...

do most people like negative attitudes?..
and it doesn't sound weird if a girl, herself, hates girls?.. right?

Negative attitudes can differ... if a boy's negative about everyone around him but just so happens to be bad arse in terms of fighting and such, it's no wonder a lot of people in the fan base like him. However, if it's just a whiny kid who's scared of everything, god, I would see why no one like 'em.

Spoiler:
It's kind of hypocritical, how audiences can love the absolutely abnormal and someone you would hate-kind of characters, but dislike completely normal characters just because they're normal when audiences could relate most to those normal characters, but I digress. Let's leave psychological-types of debates for later.

It's also how the character's depicted, too, that would determine whether they like them or not. Say, for example, a character was wearing the most awesome-est costume ever, people could make that a reason--if not, the sole reason--to like the character. It's also how the character's executed, like what they say and their notable quotes, conversing with other characters, and their reaction to scenarios.

It could also be the general tropes too found in animes, such as tsundere and moe. Personally, I think if the character's only tsundere or moe without any other interesting trope or back stories, then... wow, they're not very good, established characters, are they? Too bad an enormous amount of anime and mangas contain only linear characters like those. That's why I'm not a big fan of anime and mangas and only focus on certain series instead of a whole bunch. I'm picky like that.

I'm being quite vague here, but honestly, I don't really want to give something more specific, and being vague gives a general idea, no?

Thats another quality people look for in characters... How detailed does the story teller go into the character? If you know every single detail about the character, they become bland and shallow, one has to wonder how detailed they can get...

Mhmm, personally I like characters with more of the depth and characterization, that, of course, aren't too cliched and overboard. That way, if they're characters I especially like (I could be considered a fangirl to certain characters from different series), I'll know them a lot better. It's like trying to know your crush a lot more by taking them to dates and having conversations with them to see what they like to eat, their hobbies, etc., because you like them.

So... in a way, characters should be obviously interesting, but at the same time, not too... dramatized, should I say? That's why I'm not too big a fan of the drama/angst genre 'cause there's always characters like those. Focused too much on their past, less on their actual personalities. And the fact that they're all depressing. Wink

Ooo, also, there's character development that people look for. A character who was once a scared, low self-esteemed kid who, through out the series, becomes a strong, leader-type person is very charming for many people.

Then... normally they like characters that are different.. abnormal? right..?
because I personally like characters that are abnormal.. how could I say it... very different, interesting and fun... but this is what I like.. so I wanted to know more about what other people likes.. because normally negative attitudes.. just like selfish, mean, antisocial, etc.. they don't seem to like it.. or do they...? because of course, as mentioned.. it would be hateful someone abnormal like an psychopath character would be in real life.. it would dreadfully scary...and annoying.. and I've seen how people says they hate characters that are first weak..and always loses.. but when they are in danger.. that weak character always saves them and bla, bla.. they think that it's an annoying cliche for a character...
do they like character that first is dull, boring, or hateful, selfish develops throughout the story advances..?

Honestly, I can't generalize what kinds of characters I like, because... it's wrong. It's like saying that you like pasta, but you can't obviously like all types of pasta, right? I like Vermicelli a lot, but not so much a big fan of egg pasta, but they're in the same kind of category, see? I like a diverse amount of characters, from shy to just plain psychopathic. But of course, I'll generalize this: they can have whatever personality, but if they're badass, then they're cool, ahahahaha.

In a way, yeah. I mean, if that character is still that weak, shriveled-up kid after a bijillion chapters or episodes without any character development, then it'll be tedious to some people, even to the extent calling it a cliche. It's shunned upon by a lot of people because the character's too linear--kind of like having only one emotion or personality trait. That's boring, repetitive, and most of all, unrealistic.

If, however, the main character were to gain confidence and strength over time, most of the time, a lot more people would generally like them. That character may not be a person's favourite character out of the whole cast, but at least that character development will give a person some kind of mutual liking towards the character, because it's realistic and something people could relate to, right?
