No because he's a melodramatic fuckwit along with the rest of the unrealistic cast.

How is he a loner when he has beautiful girls always around him? He has 4 girls who like him and he has a friend in Zaimokuza as well as an acquaintance with Hayama.

He isn't a loner.

i think his time in middle school is the most accurate depiction of a loner.

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.

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.

>>135778911
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.

>>135778909
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.

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.

Fuck you.

FUCK YOU

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.

Even Naruto was more of a loner than hachiman to be honest

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
>>
>>135783983
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.
>>
>>135783997
>not even the boat version
God damn it, anon.
>>
>>135778764
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.

>loner

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.
>>
No. He is self-insert. He carries the personality of a hikki and is constantly rewarded for it. If Yahari was realistic he'd be an actual loner instead of having four whores after him.
>>
Tomoko is a real loner
