ITT best girls who should've won the MCbowl
Hard mode: only ones that were actually competing
Shittiest forced character ever
The dynamic was great in the first season and they just shat all over it with her awful character
There was no reason for her to be involved in the story, and they just penciled her in in the cheapest and least believable way possible
I don't know how anyone can like this bitch
the actual interesting ones in pretty much every series. The Japanese have a strange fetish for bland, boring, safe girls. I mean, yeah, avoid crazy but most series have a good middle-ground girl.
Shitty green haired whore.
I don't get how she's even superior.
She's just retarded chuuni moeblob number 5 in a show already saturated with them.
Do people just like her for her pink hair or the stupid heart on her face?
There's nothing interesting or discernible about any of the characters anyways.
He could have at least thrown her a bone.
I would have probably liked her more than Rikka if she was introduced at the beginning of the show.
However, the way they introduced her made her complete shit.
The amount of sheer coincidences and re-writing of Yuuta's backstory to jam her into the series was ridiculous.
Not to mention how she always magically shows up at the most inopportune times.
I don't know how anyone can like a character used as only a shitty plot device
They intentionally jammed her into the story as a mary-sue that was better than Rikka to create drama and love triangle shenanigans.
But the fact that they did that just made her immensely unlikeable in my book.
Why fuck around with your established romance by introducing a new character, when they could have actually tried to do some real character development between Rikka and Yuuta.
Oh, because good writing is hard and they wanted some cheap shit to sell more volumes.
The female main rival to the female lead always has: bigger boobs, prettier, smarter, and more likable. That is because the rival is supposed to show how the main character likes the female lead, despite her having an overwhelming disadvantage.
If the rival isn't better than the girl who won, the author messed up somewhere.
His backstory wasn't rewritten at all.
While the plot is completely different to the LNs, one thing that's the same is Yuuta's backstory, with him and her being childhood friends.
Her appearance in the show makes perfect sense, because her presence was the catalyst to develop Yuuta's and Rikka's relationship, how else did you expect them to progress if there was no drama involved.
It was all pointless anyway because the writers blue balled any progress in their relationship, but that wasn't Satone's fault. She's great and much better than Rikka in every way.
Which is why so many love stories are shit and best girls never win. The writer try to shoehorn the love story into a choice between something good and something less good and it always ends with the something less good.
It's better when there is more to the characters to drive the story to the correct girl but in chuunibyou, it seems Yuuta only liked Rikka because she was the first girl there after he hit puberty. The whole relationship between them in the second season seemed pointless. Also it seemed really creepy because it seems he was just taking care of Rikka like a child instead of actually being her boyfriend.
That is because the best girl/guy isn't designed to win. The best girl/guy is designed to show that "love conquers all, " even a rival who is superior in every single way.
This goes for both male leads and female leads in romance stories.
Rin is the best girl SEO has made so far
No, the chick with the big boobs is just there for fanserivce and titilation. They are not there for character development, they are a vehicle for developing the main love interest, and a rival to make the female lead insecure.
Expecting anything otherwise would lead to disappointment.
This is the first and last harem-shit manga I've read, and I've avoided the genre ever since for the exact reasons detailed in this thread. I refuse to be burned like that again.
She desperately needed a dicking she never got.
Yeah. Shinka was the sadistic character who liked to pick on Yuuta. The two of them had pretty good banter going on in the second volume of the series. As you said though, the LN version of Shinka is different from the anime version.
The universe put it on hiatus to avoid the possibility of her losing.
mai waifu and best girl, no, best character
Oh hi there Girls Bravo waifu anon!
I disagree with you, though I do it with utmost respect, since your waifu was amazing.
Okay let us not forget the greatest travesty in all of harem history. Mutsumi Otahime should have won the KeitaroBowl hands down.
Shinobu should have. Not everyday that a loli is even a real competitor, so hands down.
mayafags, when will they learn?
>UQ Holder timeline
I'm fine if Eva wins the Negibowl as well.
Fucking wrong. She's interfering in this perfect couple.
When something that should have been mentioned is suddenly mentioned, it's a retcon. She was added to the story later and the written into importance even though it makes no sense whatsoever.
