Is pic related right?

Could you name 5 characters that are objectively better written than Shinji?

You aren't, that was my first thought too.

I'm also surprised the School Days kid appears to be "poor", he was a pretty alpha protagonist.

I agree with the ones I've seen but I don't get why Luffy is in poor tier? Haven't read more than the first 60 or so chapters of One Piece but what makes him bad?
>>
These characters are just sorted at random. And there's no criteria for what makes a protagonist "good" so it's just some fag's "my favorite protagonist" list.

2/10 will get lots of replies from aspie /a/nons

I want Oregairu retards to leave.

Also if your sole metric for evaluating a character's worth is how "realistic" they are then you should get a different hobby. Maybe one that doesn't involve fiction.

sora is fucking epic.. fuck off

Literally Ginko with more confidence and ability to perform, elder god tier

>>135773178
Why would an obnoxious edgy teenage who cries all the time over literally nothing be a character I like. Also Shinji is more realistic and actually well written.
>>
>>135773220
Hachiman's profound realism is only one reason he's a fantastic character, though. Season 2 deconstructs his views, thoroughly attacking Hikki's core ideology and bringing him down from a distant, proud, self-content antisocial to what he really is: an insecure, earnestly struggling teenager. Suddenly, it's not about our perceptive and crafty Hikki saving the day; the flaws of his methods are finally catching up to him, and after successive hollow victories, he finally realizes that he's far in over his head. The situation has changed. He has friends who truly care about him, and get hurt when he hurts himself. Moreover, as he becomes increasingly involved in his friends' matters, his moves end up hurting them in that very same roundabout way that undermined real progress in every previous conflict. And because Hikki treasures these relationships that his past self would have ridiculed, and because his mindset banked on distancing himself from others, he now finds his entire set of rationalizations to be contradictory to his values.

Where the fuck is Lelouch? He should be god tier.

This is basically how any route in Grisaia goes down

Poor tier. Kittan should have been the MC

Dropped to mid tier

Lelouch is god tier, Shirou is top tier

>Oni-sama
He deserves a tier on its own, higher than god-tier.

Also, when will people stop fellating Shinji so hard? He's well written, but he's not some epitome of character development.

Add Ryoma Nagare, Hayato Jin, Ichimonji Go, Nanba Mutta, and Kabuto Kouji to God-tier

Sora's role as a main character is to be a power trip for awkward faggots.

A friend of mine is a big fan of ninku.

While the art style is an acquired taste, story telling wise, it's pretty good.
