And I agree with Misty- Nala on wanting more Hughes and for all those things! I find it odd how when I first started the anime and manga I didn't like Hughes. D:> I have no idea why!
I had the same problem. The first time I saw Hughes was in ep 5 and he was on the phone with Roy. I couldn't help thinking "Ugh, another annoying goof! I'm not watching this show!"
The type the not-so-serious Hughes is seems to be a rule in cartoons, anime and tv shows in general. He is someone who does odd things, acts weird and over-exaggerates the matter. Usually this kind of character has no character development and plays no importance to the plot other than just being there, like Rico and Jackson in Hannah Montana but that show is maybe a horrible example.
Yet, Hughes was eventually a big surprise because in the same episode not only does he save the main character's life (the moment I fell for him) but he also shows he can kick some arse.
And his character is unbelievably deep, he is overall a pleasure to watch and hear.
Thank you for putting Hughes on the list. It too bad I can't vote for him anymore... Well, add one imaginatory vote for Hughes!
