Note: interestingly enough, this character’s name actually has absolutely nothing in common with the similarly called car (the Opel’s “Vectra” model, which was produced from 1988 to 2008). Star Ocean EX is an animated adaptation of a video game (“Star Ocean II: The Second Story” entry of the famous franchise, to be precise) and this character was planned to be named “Opera” right from the very beginning of the development of the said title, quite a few years before anime adaptation was made. The extreme similarity between this character’s name and the car’s model name is purely coincidental due to bad translation.

9: Jim Hawking
Official Name: ジム ホーキング
AniDB Rating: 5.34
James “Jim” Hawking is an 11-year-old business partner and sidekick of Gene Starwind. He is the son of a famous computer hacker known as the “Computer Wizard.” How he met Gene is unknown. Jim serves as the team’s computer expert, hacker, strategist, and back-up. He is responsible and concerned; he worries about the team’s finances and plans, prefers to earn money the hard way rather than to take risks, and is often annoyed by Gene’s lazy and cavalier attitude. Jim becomes good friends with fellow Outlaw Star crew member Aisha Clan Clan, who is in some ways his opposite: Jim gets treated like a kid even though he acts like an adult, while Aisha, though an adult, acts like a kid. Jim also looks up to the android Melfina as a mother figure (whom he occasionally has to protect from Gene’s lecherous advances) and gets along well with the Outlaw Star’s on-board computer, Gilliam II. Jim has trouble, however, trusting strangers such as Hilda, who first approaches him and Gene under false pretenses, and Suzuka, who tries to kill Gene and whose motives are unclear. Episode 20 of the anime tells the story of Jim’s first love, a young girl named Hanmyo who, unknown to the crew, is a combat pilot charged with destroying the Outlaw Star and its crew. His name could be a nod to Jim Hawkins of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.
Jim modifies one of the Gilliam maintenance robots, changing its color from blue to pink and adding silly eyebrows. He says that he just felt like making one of them special. After this is done, he carries that one with him and uses it as his own personal link to Gilliam.

To help his family, Hyuuga Kojirou wants to be a professional player, an ace striker. His devotion to football and his persistence to shoot the goal is outstanding. He was both Tsubasa’s and Genzou’s top rival. A great guy, Hyuuga is not only strong, he is also tough but at the same time caring. Can be a bit impulsive at times, though. He was once famous because of his roughness and many players were scared of him. But, Hyuuga is actually a kind boy who cares about his family and friends. In the World Youth series, Hyuuga was one of the 7 players to be excluded from the Japanese National team after they lost 3 group matches with Real Japan 7 (R.J.7). Determined to get back into the team, Hyuuga developed a new shot, the Raijuu shot, a shot which is a bit similar to Tsubasa’s Drive Shoot, except that Hyuuga’s Raijuu Shot is a ground shot that will curve upward, unlike Tsubasa’s Drive Shooter which will go up then curve downward.

Official Name: ハロ
AniDB Rating: 5.13
Haro is the mechanical mascot of the Gundam science fiction anime metaseries, and is the only character that appears in more than one timeline.
The original Haro is a little robot companion built by the main character Amuro Ray. It is a cute testament to Amuro’s exceptional talent for machines. Haro’s features include a limited range of speech, and the ability to hover (in environments with atmosphere and low gravity) by flapping its ear-like appendage coverings. Haro can usually be found rolling behind Amuro’s next door neighbor Frau Bow. The ability to detect brain waves is also one of Haro’s functions; in one of the episodes, Haro actually claimed that the brain wave of Amuro was lowered/different.
In Zeta Gundam, a mass-produced Mk-II version of Haro ends up in the hands of that series’ main protagonist Kamille Bidan, who initially suspects it to be the original. He repairs the robot, only to have it constantly address him as Amuro.
During the events of Char’s Counterattack, Amuro gives a “third-generation” Haro to Hathaway, the son of his captain Bright Noa.
Haro continues to permeate the Gundam franchise, having appeared in Gundam SEED as Lacus Clyne’s multi-colored horde of simple-speech robot pets, built for her by Athrun Zala. These Haros are roughly 1/4 the size of their Universal Century counterparts and are similar in function, however a few possess certain abilities such as unlocking doors. Lacus’s favorite Haro is a pink machine that she refers to as “Pink-Chan” (often translated as “Mr. Pink” or “Pinky”). Another notable Haro in Lacus’s collection is “Navy-Chan”, a navy blue robot on which she paints a mustache bearing a distinct resemblance the facial ornament of the ? Gundam of the CC (正歴 Seireki) calendar system. The rest of Lacus’ Haros have been seen in yellow, orange, blue, green, and black. The parody comic Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Club Yonkoma states that Athrun has built a total of 35 Haros for Lacus.
In Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Celestial Being had produced unknown numbers of Haros as an assistant of daily maintenance works. Currently at least 6 unique Haros have appeared in the animation production. The Haros in the series took much more maintenance and combat role than any other series’ counterpart, usually seeing them operating with various machines, including mobile weapons.

Official Name: Ash Ketchum
AniDB Rating: 2.55
Ash is the main character of the Pokémon anime. Raised in Pallet Town, he started his journey to become a Pokémon Master at the age of 10. On the day that he started his journey, Ash carelessly woke up late despite being told by his mother, Delia Ketchum to get to bed. He rushed to Professor Samual Oak’s laboratory only to find out that the beginner Pokémon – Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander – had already been given out to trainers who arrived on time. However, Professor Samual Oak mentioned that there was one more Pokémon available – Pikachu. Despite constantly hitting Ash with Electric-type attacks and refusing to return to its PokéBall, Ash decided to take Pikachu along with him on his journey to become a Pokémon Master. Pikachu is cold towards Ash at first and laughs at his failures; however, when Ash saves Pikachu from a flock of wild Spearow, he begins to warm up to his new trainer and the two finally become friends. After the battle with the flock of Spearow, a Ho-Oh is seen flying towards a rainbow in the sky. The PokéDex reveals that the Ho-Oh is an unidentified Pokémon. Thus, the journey of Ash and Pikachu begins.
Captures in Viridian Forest
While making his way towards Pewter City and his first Kanto League Gym Battle, Ash came upon a wild Caterpie deep within Viridian Forest. Instead of using Pikachu to battle against the wild Pokémon, Ash took his chances and threw a PokéBall without weakining the Caterpie first. Luckily, he was able to catch the Pokémon without any trouble. The capture of a Caterpie marked Ash’s first capture as a Pokémon Trainer, making Ash’s Caterpie the second Pokémon to join his team.
The next day, while continuing the trek through the Viridian Forest, Ash came up on a wild Pidgeotto. He tried to just throw a PokéBall like he did with Ash’s Caterpie, but Pidgeotto swatted the PokéBall away. Misty informed that he must weaken the Pokémon first before attempting to capture it. He called out Ash’s Caterpie to battle against, but Misty quickly informed him that Bug-type Pokémon are weak against Flying-type Pokémon like Pidgeotto. After Pidgeotto dealt significant damage to Ash’s Caterpie, Ash recalled it and sent out Pikachu. Pikachu was able to use its Thundershock to weaken Pidgeotto and allow Ash to capture it with a PokéBall. Thus, this capture marked Ash’s second capture as a Pokémon Trainer, making Ash’s Pidgeotto the third Pokémon to join his team.
Later on, while still in the Viridian Forest, Ash was approached by Team Rocket, who attempted to steal his Pokémon. After defeating Meowth, James’s Koffing, and Jessie’s Ekans, Ash’s Caterpie evolved into a Metapod.
Some of Ash’s greatest accomplishments have been at the various Pokémon Leagues. He was the victor at the Orange League, the Battle Frontier, and the Alola League. He also competed in the Indigo League and the Johto Silver Conference where he placed admirably in both those competitions as well.
Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup
Ash participated in the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup at the Lacunosa Town stadium. In the first round he was in the fifth match and faced off against Marris. The match was quickly showcased and Ash won the battle and advanced to the second round while Marris was eliminated from the tournament.
The Unova League
Ash participated in the Unova League in the preliminary match where he was matched up against Trip. Trip’s Serperior was sent out to battle Pikachu and Cilan noted that Trip’s Serperior’s speed and its attack power had levelled up quite a bit too since the last time they saw it. The match was pretty one sided for a long time as Pikachu wasn’t able to counter Trip’s Serperior speed and ended up getting wrapped up. After using Iron Tail on the ground to get loose, Pikachu used a combination attack of Iron Tail and Electro Ball to one hit KO Trip’s Serperior. As a result, Trip was eliminated from the Unova League and Ash advanced to the next round. The two met in the Pokémon Center after the battle, and Trip vowed that the next time they met that he would win. The two shook hands and parted ways.
In the first main round, Ash’s opponent was shown on the match up electronic board but not much else is known about the battle. Ash’s Scraggy participated in the second main round of the Unova League tournament where it faced off against a Darumakka. It was able to defeat it so that moved on to the next round.
In the third round, Stephan was matched up against Ash. Cilan noted that the two of them have a very direct taste and that it would be a good battle. It was only a 3-on-3 battle but the both of them gave it their all. The first two battles of the third round setup the final match up of Stephan’s Sawk vs Ash’s Krookodile, both of which were very injured from the previous battles. Both of them did their best to muster up their reserve strength but in the end a surprise move of Aerial Ace by Ash’s Krookodile was super effective against Stephan’s Sawk and it knocked it out to give Ash the victory while eliminating Stephan from the tournament. Stephan realized after the battle that the reason that Ash withdrew Waruvial after the first battle was because Ash knew that Stephan would definitely send out Sawk, so he didn’t reveal that it knew Aerial Ace and saved until the end.
Ash participated in the first ever Manalo Conference’s preliminaries, where he was allowed to advance to the first round of the conference as one of the 16 out of 151 competitors remaining at the end of the preliminaries and eventually became the first ever Champion of the Alola League.
