10. Emil from ToS2 (Not bad for a person not from a mothership title.) 9. Raven from ToV 8. Zelos from ToS 7. Kratos from ToS 6. Guy from TotA 5. Jade from TotA 4. Lloyd from ToS (Wow, he went way up from last time.) 3. Luke from TotA 2. Leon (Big shocker there -.-) 1. Yuri (Of course he's awesome)
All in all, looks like Emil is pretty well liked in the Japanese public which is like wow since not many people in the US likes him tat much (with me as one of the exceptions)
Here the link: http://news.dengeki.com/elem/000/000/129/129482/index-2.html
I think Emil might not be liked as much due to the voice acting and such, while in Japanese it might not sound as bad; usually Japanese stuff sounds better in Japanese than English. This is usually due to the fact that the Japanese are very culturally different and have their own reoccurring character types not found in Western fiction.
Though this is just speculation, especially since I haven't heard it in Japanese. Anyone know away to change the voices to Japanese?
I think the only people that seem to have a problem with Emil and other characters that fit his category is that he apologizes too much. I seen it alot on the boards, the fact that collete, estelle and Emil are hated in the community is that they say "sorry" often well as for Japan, they dont see it as much of a problem cuz they like both Emil and Collete. (I'm not sure wat place Estelle is in because i cant read japanese XD)
Found the rest from another gaming board (dont hate me >.>)

Well, not that it means much, but I think it's adorable when characters apologize all the time <3 I especially love how Emil topped Colette's apology for apologizing, by apologizing for apologizing for apologizing XD
It's nice to see so many of my favorites being well-liked by others <3 --- "There is nothing sad about being of a fragile race." -Diana, Legend of Mana
