I personally like the Lord typed units since they are more balanced.
But, it really depends on your use for him. Lord, like said, is more all around balanced. You can throw them into any situation and they will do exceptionally well. Anima on the other hand is a bit more tanky, but has a bit of a handicap in Hp/BB restoration.
So Anima would be best for Arena purposes, and Lord for Questing/Frontier Hunter.
