Is Hachiman the most realistic depiction of a loner in anime?
I just started watching S2. What the hell is her problem?
>people try to be his friend
>his teachers like him
>people don't outright ignore him
>girls actually show interest in him on a romantic level
Compared to my highschool experience he's a normalfaggot
Even Tomoko is a better example of a loner
Trick question. An anime about a true loner would be so banal and forgettable that you wouldn't even realize it existed. In fact, it would be so meaningless that there wouldn't be an anime about a realistic loner.
As a person who was actually a loner, he doesn't even close. I know all of you like to pretend people were interested in you like they were in 8man, but no. Your loner life is completely inconsequential to just about everyone.
What about an anime where a loner strikes back against the normals that have tormented him?
My Twisted Life anime when?
Uh why else watch anime? It presents an ideal world through animation so I can leave this shitty nightmare planet behind for just 20 minutes at a time.
Loners don't go chatting people up
The guy has maybe 3 friends who he rarely sees. Most of the time he's traveling alone, only stopping whenever mushi are involved since that's his job. He's a much better loner than Hachiman.
Original lain minus the other personalities was the on I connected with the most. Just complete detachment from the world around her.
>Yahari is one of the few series that critiques ...
While completely indulging in cliches and genre conventions without a trace of irony. Hackneyed observations one is privy to when younger than the cast somehow redeems this piece of shit?
>taking your kouhai home
>she whispers this into your ear
>"Woah, this guy acts like Batman."
>"Do we like each other or what?"
Incredible storytelling. A real tour de force.
And yet it clearly does. You could look at the posts in the threads and see that.
>one of the few series that critiques light novel tropes
While rolling along with those same old tropes.
No wonder generals exist. They're to contain you and your delusions.
This. People like Satou aren't really realistic. Sure they work as a sort of abstract representation of what it's like, but they don't actually come across as being anything like it actually is.
>yaoi fangirl character reveals she hates herself because reasons
>generic family problems attached to ice queen archetype
>caricatures acting like retards to parallel the club and the other student council's problems
>"muh human heart"
>"I'm like that lonely fish"
>"I'm not so nice."
This, not only do girls talk to him at all but he has at least two male friends, one of whom is attractive and supposedly athletic yet suspiciously only has time for Hachiman, and seems to be on good terms with his sister.
He's an idealized version, not as optimistic as some since he gets egg on his face regularly with no comeuppance but he still seems to be in a very safe situation to be how he is without too much reflection on the real consequences.
Shinji's not really a loner, he tries to deal with being alone but he doesn't necessarily like it he just prefers it over feeling hurt, ignored or abandoned by others. He gets along fine with most people after a rough start and doesn't have a very low opinion of anyone or anything unless he's constantly antagonized by them.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT FUCK YOU
HE'S A GARY STU
HE'S A FUCKING GARY STU
>b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-BUT HE ISN'T TALL OR HANDSOME AND DOESN'T GO PEW PEW /EH/ TOLD ME THAT ONLY SWORD ARTS ONLINES IS A GARY STUS
Fuck off, shithead cancer.
In real life, nobody gives a shit about losers. They're ignored and live shitty lives.
8man, meanwhile, is constantly given attention by pretty girls and magically solves problems while falling on his sword. It's a fucking gary stu fantasy for losers.
You do NOT get to think he's realistic, because he's not.
You do NOT get to circlejerk about how real and unique he is, because he's a cookie cutter piece of shit we see in dozens of anime.
Just started as well, from what I can take from it she's just concerned with how he keeps giving himself and by extension their group a bad look to others when they're supposed to be helping others.
From her perspective anyway, she didn't know about the behind the scenes stuff pushing him into that situation.
Remember his stunt with the concert thing just happened a bit ago, so from her perspective he seems to just be digging himself deeper into an outlier hole. A hole she probably feels she'll be obliged to pull him out of due to their association, and one she probably thinks he could avoid if he shared his thoughts and cooperated more. She made an offhand comment like that when this little arc started, something along the lines of how she can't help how Hachiman makes himself seem to others but showed she can and will tell them to leave if she feels they're being rude about it. Having to do that over and over for his sake might get annoying without justification. Of course that would require Hachiman coming down from his cross and crucifying other people and that would really dig him into a hole since she'd still be angry as well as the people who trusted his confidentiality.
It's complicated, but really simple. They just need to get over it really.
No, but he's the most realistic depiction of what deluded anons imagine their own loner selves to be
Every time someone makes a thread/post about how much they can relate to 8man or some bullshit, I think of pic related
Don't know about that. He got along with older, more mature and worldly ninja quite well even at the beginning. They didn't hang out with him much (though it's not like they had a choice given their lifestyle and occupation) but they didn't dislike him personally or his upbeat personality. Comparatively Hachiman's teachers may not dislike him personality, but they certainly recognize he has a personality problem and that it's not a fault of society or some demon inside him or whatever.
He also got along with younger ninja naive of the world before, and had a secret admirer. So he was a loner mostly because those people he's on good terms with couldn't come forward or associate with him too much for their own reasons and everyone else was legitimately scared of him.
Beyond all that there's nothing wrong with Naruto personality wise, he was just stuck in a village where he had an infamous background affecting his socializing opportunity. Once he moves beyond those limits he quickly gains a lot of associates very quickly, even those who didn't take to him initially.
Loners are usually people who take their isolation wherever they go.
No. He's a very good comedy protagonist (less so in S2), but he's not even a real loner in the story beyond episode 1. And even so, it's made clear that any isolation he endures is a choice.
Watamote is what it is really like, I think. It has a person with real psychological problems, delusions, and involuntary loneliness.
Sato from NHK is a special case, as it's not so much about loneliness as it's about having no place in modern society.
>surrounded by girls who want his dick for no reason
If anything he is the ultimate self-insert, it's not a surprise this and other wish fulfilment shit like SAO, Mahouka or NGNL are the best selling LN in Japan.
>loser and loner have a harem
fuck no, he has it good.
he's just a lazy asshole with a superiority complex.
I can't stand this series.
fucking this. thank you anon.
Before every girl was lusting for his cock yes. If it had just been the autistic girl then it could be somewhat believable. If it had stayed true to him isolating himself and the consequences of doing that it would have been.
Well if that was the most realistic depiction of a loner, I fucking wish I'm a loner.
I mean a damn attractive girls always surround me is definitely a depiction of a loner.
Can you be more sucking Yahari dick OP? You can be a fanboy, but even fanboy can think. Are you a retard or just an idiot?
I love Hachiman. Fuck everyone in this thread.
Yeah I love to be 8man. Sensei, that 2 girl, that another girl, that girly boy wanting my dick is fucking great when I'm self inserting.
Yeah I love 8man, fuck everyone who defended it.
