Why is this guy so fucking cool?

He's apparently a horrible person, but he's just so goddamn likable, it's impossible for me to hate him.
>>
He has S++ pragmatism.

First, he doesn't value things that are hard to replace. He understands that if you spend more energy keeping something functioning because it's unique than the value it gives you the sum is negative in worth.
In that same line he understands that a copy or a fake is inconsequential. He doesn't care about authenticity. Authenticity is something which doesn't have any value.

Next he understands that money is then almost a direct correlation to ability in the real world. He knows that almost anything can be bought or paid for.

Finally despite all of this, he understands he is illogical as a human. He has seen the truth of the world and ignores it, he lies to himself, and he is sentimental.

He really is one of the best written characters in anime.
>>
>>116947401
I didn't think he was so horrible after MSS, especially not after hana.
Then again, I liked him before those anyway.
He's kinda an anti-araragi which is much needed in the show

The three adults represent three different views; that the real thing is always more valuable, that the real and the fake are equal, or that the fake is more valuable than the real thing. At no stage did the novels imply one is more right than the other two, they each find a niche.

He's a compelling character because he's has a unique outlook on life that's colored by an element of veracity. By that I mean that he has believable and clearly defined motivations, beliefs, and weaknesses as a person, all of which are, while a staple of most fiction that is worth a damn, generally absent from Japanese cartoons.

Every episode felt like 50 minutes to me. Lost potential : the show
>mononoke hime
It's just pretty backgrounds with a mediocre story, mediocre action scenes and mediocre charcaters, like most of ghibli studios's work.
>samurai champloo
Im not a big fan of "every episode is a mini-arc but the last few episodes actually progress the main story" anime.
But champloo did a great job overall. I gave it a 6 iirc, which is a perfect score for it
>baccano
Just, boring. Too many characters for a short show and it ends before it even started

>The idea of kaiki having relations with anyone seems really gross to me. He's like a dad or soemthing.
Well he is trying to be a fake-dad to Kanbaru. The issue is that most people associate being a father with being a provider, but Kanbaru is already wealthy. So Kaiki is forced to be a father figure the hard way instead of giving her money. You know, telling her to eat properly and give life advice.

In that same line he understands that a copy or a fake is inconsequential. He doesn't care about authenticity. Authenticity is something which doesn't have any value.

Aren't these directly contradictory to each other?
>>
>>116950692
That's not his reasoning. He values a fake more than the original if they are indistinguishable because he values the effort put in by the fake more than the inherent benefit of originality.

Meme was the one who does not care about authenticity.

Because he comes across exactly as a normal, practical-thinking person would. He's so uncannily relateable it feels like a real person was transplanted into an anime. You can't help but get the impression that his point of view is exactly how someone SHOULD perceive the rest of the story.

It feels like the author wrote Kaiki with a great deal of self-awareness. He's villainous only so much as he is an adult that acts like an adult in a world that's written through the eyes of a teenager.
