    Two well-liked Shounen protagonists who also happen to be English. Well ok Ed technically isn't but still.

    Which of these two do you prefer?

    I'd have to say Allen. Edward just never really clicked with me and Allen has a complex and existential character arc that is just really fun to watch unfold.

    and both of them tried to resurrect their loved ones and end up regretting it.

    I like Allen more..

    Ed isn't English in any way, not just technical. Amestris is supposed to be Germany.

    I voted for Allen, because Edward is still too much of a typical shonen protagonist; he may not be a complete clone of Goku in the way that Luffy, Naruto, and Natsu are, but he still is short-tempered and clueless about romance, whereas Allen is actually calm and rational and seems to have some concept of romance.

    Voting for Allen, it'll be interesting to see how his character develops once we see his true origins next chapter

    I find it funny that you dislike Ed for his cluelessness about romance.

    T-this is a very hard choice :catshivers

    Design wise I say Allen all day every day. I think Edward has more personalty though. C-can we merge them into one character or vote them both? I'm not capable enough to make this decision. :catsad

    When it comes to Edward, I liked his relationship with his brother more than I like him as a character... if that makes sense. Of the two brothers I liked Alphonse Elric more to be honest.

    I completely forgot D.Gray-man existed lol, too many hiatus. Anyways, I liked Allen Walker back in the day. So I guess I'll go with him. :grin

    Never liked Allen even though I really enjoyed DGM way back. So Edward Elric, easily.

    No idea who Allen is, but Edward is in my top 3 favourite manga protagonists (along with Yusuke and Battousai) so he gets my vote easily.
