Tia-Harribel
In most anime,there some characters who are just interesting enough to have their own series.

The Top Ten

1 L - Death Note L - Death Note L Lawliet, exclusively known by the mononym L, is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.
2 Sesshomaru - Inuyasha Sesshomaru - Inuyasha

Such an awesome character with a great voice actor and a great story

3 Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist : Brotherhood Roy Mustang - Fullmetal Alchemist : Brotherhood Roy Mustang is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

Now that would be amazing. I always wanted to know more about Roy's backstory. Make it happen. - Elric-san

4 Gajeel Redfox - Fairy tail Gajeel Redfox - Fairy tail Gajeel Redfox is a fictional character from the anime Fairy Tail. He is the Iron Dragon Slayer. He was an antagonist in his first appearance, fighting main character Natsu Dragneel. He later ended up turning to Fairy Tail's side, and most commonly fights alongside Levy McGarden and Panther-Lily.
5 Gaara - Naruto Gaara - Naruto Gaara is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto. He is the jinchuuriki of the one-tailed shukaku and can control sand that is stored in his gourd.

That would be an interesting anime - Nickiminaj4life

A tremendous deep story

6 Roronoa Zoro - One Piece Roronoa Zoro - One Piece Roronoa Zoro, nicknamed "Pirate Hunter" Zoro, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

I have a feeling that show would be kinda boring though. His fights are cool, but storywise there is nothing interesting about him. Zoro is good as a supporting character, not as a main character.

One-dimensional character and insanely overrated.

Zoro is pretty cool, though he really can't compare to Luffy as a hero.

Ehh he isn't that superior like people think. He's a boring character to be honest - smill

7 C.C. - Code Geass C.C. - Code Geass C.C. is the pseudonym of a fictional character in the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion anime series by Sunrise. C.C.'s real name is never shared with the audience, despite eventually being learned by protagonist Lelouch Lamperouge.

I feel like it would be a very dark series - smill

She lived through many years. And the origins of the power of geass was never explained much in CG: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

8 Renji Abarai - Bleach Renji Abarai - Bleach
9 Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail . Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her friends' calls that they want ...read more.
10 Heine Westenfluss - Gundam SEED Destiny

His backstory as a ZAFT pilot during and after the First Bloody Valentine War would make a great spin-off OVA or manga. They should also show Heine's involvement with the testing of the Destiny Gundam in it's original colors (the orange Heine Westenfluss custom). - PerfectImpulseX

The Contenders

11 Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy - Elfen Lied Lucy (born as kaede), is a tragic, fictional Japanese Anti-Heroine, and Anti-Villianess, who is the main protagonist of her debut source, a manga officially known as Elfen Lied [alfen leed], written and illustrated by Lynn Okamoto, which was best known for it's T.V. adaptation of the same name, Directed ...read more.

13 Vinsmoke Sanji - One Piece Vinsmoke Sanji - One Piece Vinsmoke Sanji, most commonly known by his moniker "Black Leg" Sanji, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

It would be interesting - smill

My favorite. He's such a sweatheart, also smart and badass with an interesting backstory.

Nices brows

14 Gray Fullbuster - Fairy Tail Gray Fullbuster - Fairy Tail Gray Fullbuster a fairytail wizard is a kind sensitive person which can be mainly found in underwear or fighting a guildmate / friend brother Natsu Dragneel (which I am supersede dint make this list) anyway Gray has a habit of stripping which he found while training with his now unfortunately dead master ...read more.

I want Ice Trail to be animated.

15 Archer Archer Archer is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. He is the Archer-class servant of Rin Tohsaka during the Fifth Holy Grail War in Fate/stay night.

They should at least make an OVA about Archer's past and how he came to be the Counter Guardian he is now, only we get to experience more of it in his eyes. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

16 Kikyo Kikyo
17 San - Princess Mononoke San - Princess Mononoke
18 Miguel Aiman - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED
19 Mari Ohara - Love Live! Sunshine
20 Kohaku - InuYasha
21 Lin - Spirited Away
22 Nico Yazawa - Love Live! School Idol Project Nico Yazawa - Love Live! School Idol Project
23 Minene Uryu - Future Diary Minene Uryu - Future Diary

An OVA based on her past would be delightful to watch.

24 Teresa - Claymore Teresa - Claymore
25 Robert E. Speedwagon - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure

Robert E.O. Speedwagon actually.
Sorry, I must've made a typo. - PerfectImpulseX

26 Gilgamesh - Fate/Stay Night Gilgamesh - Fate/Stay Night Gilgamesh is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. He is the Archer-class servant of Tokiomi Tohsaka and a secondary antagonist during the Fourth Holy Grail War in Fate/Zero.

Gilgamesh one of the best character ever created

I would like something like an OVA series depicting Gilgamesh's past, especially his relationship with Enkidu. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

27 Jellal Fernandes - Fairy Tail Jellal Fernandes - Fairy Tail Jellal Fernandes is a childhood friend of Erza Scarlet. When he lost his own memory, he was a Dark Mage who desperately sought to revive Zeref via the R-System. Jellal served as the main antagonist of the Tower of Heaven arc and is currently a member and co-founder of Crime Sorcière.

It'd be great to see Jellal grow up. I think he and Erza will be better protagonists than Natsu and Lucy, their story is more intriguing and their characters are way deeper. - Goku02

28 Rohan Kishibe - Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
29 Gary Oak - Pokemon Gary Oak - Pokemon Gary oak appeared in the anime series in seasons 1-5 . He was ash's rival and childhood friend . Though they had a dispute once they fought over a rusty pokeball they wanted for luck, which broke after they fought over it . Gary was the grandson of professor oak .

30 Ruby Kurosawa - Love Live! Sunshine!!
31 Izaya Orihara Izaya Orihara

I actually want a series about Izaya. Maybe an anime adaption of the 'A Sunset With Izaya Orihara' light novels?
I really want Izaya to return to Ikebukuro, though. The SH books have been really boring without him trolling around the city or being chased by Shizuo - MLPFan

Izaya’s character is really interesting. He’s the best character. - Goku02
