Now I don't really WANT to defend Haseo, but I can't stand by when someone can, through PURE MAGIC praise Tokio WHILST still being able to defend R1 (even then not entirely since you barely bothered defending Tsukasa).
Whilst? Tokio praising and R1 defending where on different matters. Though honestly I do like them both. I still think Tokio's design is a disgrace to .hack, but besides that I am liking him so far. Like a cool shugo. Though I can't understand him yet, I do like his reactions, actions, tone, the air about him and what not. As long as his dialogue isn't incredibly stupid... Yea, I think I can safely admit I do like Tokio. Not love, but certainly not hate.
And using only the characters you mentioned. Which I guess it a list of the the main characters, though I guess you could argue about a few other characters like Blackrose and Mai.
Blackrose + Kite (and hopefully a baby) > Tsukasa > Albireo > Tokuoka > Carl > Kite (Sora) (Probably should be last since we actually don't know much about her, but just call it love at first cross rengeki, for now) > Tokio > Nanase > Shugo > Raid > Haseo > Midori > Lara
A quick list. Subject to change I guess. Especially early on, but theres nothing to crazy. Like Shugo isn't randomly going to go up ahead of Tsukasa or anything. Though maybe Haseo could go up to around Carl. Need to see more post drama Haseo. And maybe Kite (Sora) going ahead of Carl. Just love her design and personality so far, but like I said in the list she should really probably be at the end.
