What are the worst kinda of anime protagonists and main characters.
Beat wusses or ones with no backbone
Please, do not use Valvrager's business card. It triggers my Shit-Post Stress Disorder.
>Muh I can see death made for edgy teens
Truly a worse MC than Shinji but it had a good moments for like 2 episode.
The worst anime protags are the ones that don't man up when the situation calls for it and take the coward's way out. Best examples being Shinji and the MC from Charlotte. I'd also add Takeru from Muvluv although that's not really anime. Nothing shows more of a lack of manliness than wussing out when things get hard.
Can the Americans fuck off with their love of "alpha" tough guy MCs?
Mirai Nikki and EVA wouldn't work at all with a more proactive MC. "Beta" MCs like Shinji and Yuki are great and fit in perfectly.
He was willing to be a big dicked badass and slaughter a bunch of soldiers when he thought she was dead but when he gets chance to confess he's just like "MUH FALSE EXISTENCE" "IMMUH MONSTER" ;___;
>He wasn't really that bad.
No he was. Everyone hated him while the show aired and still do.
>What would you have done in his place?
Own up and actually take responsibility for my actions, be productive instead of crying in a corner, not hide essential information for no reason.
This pussy right here, he ruined the fucking show.
>b-b-but he's realistic
Fuck off, I don't watch animes for realism.
>It's a deconstruction, that how a 14 year old would act
Deconstruction my ass, go watch a real deconstruction like OPM or Madoka. Hell, TTGL is more of a mecha deconstruction than this shit.
>It's just 2deep4u anon
No....it really isn't.
>This is bait
Can't handle the truth, huh?
>go watch a real deconstruction like OPM
I like you. Now lets wait for the replies.
>The worst anime protags are the ones that don't man up when the situation calls for it and take the coward's way out. Best examples being Shinji and the MC from Charlotte.
Shinji never walked out during emergencies, but before or after. He also always came back, and kicked every angel's ass, often single handedly.
How is that being a coward?
>Deconstruction my ass, go watch a real deconstruction like OPM or Madoka. Hell, TTGL is more of a mecha deconstruction than this shit.
You can only pretend to be so retarded anon.
But that's how humans operate, and that's why he is realistic.
For example characters like Emiya Shirou from Fate, or Kamina from TTGL are not bad, but they are absolutely not realistic. The "hero of justice" type of characters are exaggerations, no one thinks that way.
No sane person would fight giant alien monsters, if not to protect what he cares about. Shinji is realistic especially for the fact that he ponders about fighting frequently, trying to understand for what/who he is fighting. That's what makes it a well written character.
The "Kamina" type of character might be cool, but is deliberately unrealistic.
Except he was consistently alpha as fuck.
And Shinji wasn't that bad, he did get in the robot after all.
I think he's indecisive as all hell. Though at least he has enough of a backbone to get laid.
Beta as fuck
Slave to foolish morals

Why do we hate Haruto again? He's way better than most MCs.
>gets into a love triangle with two Yandere
>comes out alive with both Yandere impregnated and mutually in love
>not even considering their pregnant parents
>Allies with a space nazi
That's a really bad thing.
>Shoots unarmed men
After complainging about it and being forced to shoot.
>Kills without hesitation

>Does whatever it takes to protect his country
Unless it means finding out about him.
