So tell me /a/, what's your criteria to pick between good and bad obvious anon's self insert fulfilling fantasy character?
>>
You sound so fucking gay.

What a fucking stupid OP.

Try >>>/v/

>>118265052
The bad one is the one that is popular outside of /a/

>>118265052
They both come from shows meant to be watched for fun. But /a/ has a fixed idea that the only shows you're allowed to watch for fun are Sol and haremshit
>>
>>118265052
And of course OP will not grace us with his shitty opinion like the faggot he is.
>>
Well, 8man isn't a shitty gary stu.
>>
>>118265885
Well he certainly isn't but he isn't a good character either.
>>
>>118265052
Right's series is about him developing past his pessimistic view of life.

Left doesn't even try to pretend it's not wish fulfillment.
>>
>>118266009
But what people like the most about 8man on /a/ it's precisely his pessimistic, fedora-tier view of life and philosophy

That's just the anime-only fags.
>>
>>118265052
if the character is a self insert, it needs to be realistic and non-preachy

#2 in the OP picture does not fit these criteria and is thus a fucking faggot

He's a better character than mister "I win everytime because I'm smart".
>>
>>118266368
id rather watch a gary stu than an irritating irrational retarded as fuck mc personally

I suffer from extreme second hand embarrassment anxiety
>>
>>118266206
At least Shintarou had a reason for being a hikkiNEET.
>>
>>118266368
Explain to me how mister "i always win by socially suiciding" is better
>>
>>118266502
He's more entertaining than a gary stu.
>>
>>118266440
>>118266502
Well he's a more fleshed out and developed character than Gary Stu personified.
>>
>>118266561
Also it's not fun watching a gary stu winning all the time and because he's such a bland character we just don't give a shit about him.
>>
>>118266502
>i always win by socially suiciding
But that bites him in the ass later.

Other people are like that too? That's nice to know. I get this horrible feeling when someone is about to or is socially humiliating their self. Sometimes I can't bring myself to even witness it.

I usually self insert as the girl though

No surprise, /a/ is filled of self-despising losers.

Why does everyone here hate NGNL? Is it because it's just ridiculous how he's always one step ahead of literally every person?
>>
>>118266848
We're talking about which one is objectively a better character. Anything can be fun to watch but a good series distinguishes itself far more than a mediocre one like No Game No Life. I bet there's fag who think Glasslip was gueninely enjoyable.
>>
>People thinking always winning=Gary Stu
That's like saying every Yugioh MC is a Gary Stu. Sora is a complete loser on everything but games, but just happen to be on a world where everything is decided on games.

So he's a Gary Stu in the end you dumbass. If there was anything else that actually mathered in the setting of the show then maybe he wouldn't of been a Gary Stu.

You're setting yourself up for failure here. A LN reader could give you a rundown on why Hachiman is a good character, but he'll be drowned out by:

>reading LNs
>self-insert good? no
etc
>>
>>118266826
Not the other anon, but I cant watch anything embarrassing no matter the circumstances. I skip whole pages in books as well.
>>
>>118266967
>We're talking about which one is objectively a better character.
That's exactly why arguments like >>118266549
are shit because they're based only in their personal likes.
>Anything can be fun to watch but a good series distinguishes itself far more than a mediocre one like No Game No Life
NGNL is plot-driven. Yahari is character-driven. Of course the latter will have more character development because that's almost the entire show. The attractive with plot-driven shows, on the other hand, is the world-setting development as a whole, which character-driven shows usually lack. However, /a/ has a very marked bias towards character-driven shows, so they mostly try to apply the criteria of these type of shows even on those which are not meant like that
>>
>>118267258
hmmm, you are kinda right anon, never thought it that way.
>>
>>118267085
>Oliver Atom is a Gary Stu
Being a gary stu has always been about the character as a whole, not exclusively about his in-universe abilities
>>
>>118266200
Are you kidding? 8 Man is an upstanding citizen and protector of mankind, as long as he's got his cigarettes. And he runs faster than the shinkansen.
>>
>>118267258
Being a plot-driven show doesn't excuse the fact that the characters are still garbage. If at least they were more believable and well written it would make NGNL more entertaining a a whole because we would actually care about what happens. Then again with how they only win no matter what, it'd still be boring nonetheless.
>>
>>118267258
/a/ is being smart, and not smartass

That is nice I like you /a/non.

>>118267258
Not all plot-driven media has garbage characters.

>Being a character-driven show doesn't excuse the fact that the setting and background are still garbage. If at least they were more believable and well written it would make Yahari more entertaining a a whole because we would actually care about what happens.

What's wrong with self inserting?

There's a reason why we're on /a/ you know
