Seriously, I havent been more impressed, amused, interested in any other character I have come across in the world of anime. Mugen is the epitome of coolness. He's always calm and collected and shows a dont give a shit attitude towards everything while still managing to get by just fine. He always has a sense of humour in any situation even if hes losing his cool and at the end of the series is when he truely shines by risking his life to save a certain somebody. The only other character i could size him up with is Spike from Cowboy Bebop. Actually you could almost say they are the same person (personality) except one weilds a sword the other a gun. No other anime character makes a better hero in my opinion. If you disagree please post who you think is better and why.
