Hey /a/, can we have an.... iinchou thread?

It's a character archetype I never see discussed. Am I the only one who tends to favour them?

Say it ain't so. Post iinchous. Talk about iinchous. Even talk about characters you think would make good iinchous.

Define it for me anon. I had no idea it was an archetype up until now.

Iinchou tends to be translated as "class rep" in subs, short for class representative. Common thing in Japanese schools. Typically academic female characters with a tendency to chide or "nag" students who aren't exactly behaving up to standards.

They can also be shy or demure instead, like pic related. They often have pig-tails/braids and/or megane. Often, they're considered "plain" in comparison to main girls.

On a side note, if you listen, characters will sometimes actually say "iinchou" instead of their actual name when referring to them more often than not. Subs usually just use their name, though.

The ones I've posted are both contemporary examples, but a more classical one might be say... Hikari from Evangelion.

>tfw no childhood friend iinchou to look out for me in her own awkward, bossy way
>I will never see her be flustered when I suddenly voice my appreciation for her always being there and trying her best

This is all I'd need to be happy, honestly.
