Which anime characters deserve their own show where they're the sole protagonist? Since there are so many worthy characters, we've decided to list them all and let you vote on the ones you'd want to see the most. Can you imagine an Initial D season that is all about Bunta's backstory as the fastest racer on the Akina Pass? What about Shikamaru from Naruto, using his logic to solve puzzles and defeat villains? There are so many great anime spinoffs that seriously need to happen, but we want to know what you'd like to see the most. Vote up the anime characters you feel deserve their own show, and add any characters to the list if they're not already here.

The characters we've included for this poll are mostly good, but if there are any villains you'd want to see in their own show then please add them to the list. Who knows? Maybe a show about Orochimaru and his backstory would actually be pretty cool.
