Started watching this Macross today I'm just want to say in advance "fuck you elevens" because I'm bet that this girl will somehow lose the MC bowl.

Well that's neat.
>self insert character
Why people use this as negative criticism? A great character is one anyone can relate to.
It's used for characters that are so bland because their sole purpose is to be a vehicle for the reader or viewers desires. You can have a relatable character and still give them their own personality and back-story.
I would argue that the best characters are those you root for and understand, they are relatable because they, just like you, have their dreams, hopes, anguish and trials (if they are well written enough).
A self insert character tries to achieve that relatability in a lazy way, by just boiling down their traits to the bare minimum in hopes of appealing to a broad audience.

People often use it as a negative criticism only because they are having trouble self-inserting into a particular NON-self-insert character that doesn't align with their own personality traits. Thus they accuse said character of being a self-insert for others (which may or may not be true) in a negative way to distance themselves from it. There are very few characters out there which are truly completely blank slates which get a free ride through their story.
Also known as projection.

What is Joubin planning at a time like this?
It's cool, I hope you have fun with it. I liked part 6 a LOT more when I reread it.
And yeah, it was a good talk and reminded me of why I like the characters and series. Apologies for my aggro tone at the start, I admit I was expecting a shitflinging 'Daddy issues' argument rather than the good discussion you provided. Thank you, Anon.

Anime that crushed your soul
Fuck Koi Kaze. I read this shit thinking it'd be a cute story about a young sister and her brother finally meeting again after several years and rebuilding a bond that was lost or something like that, but it turned into fucking incest.

Look at all of these Grande Witch Faculty members! Which one is your favorite?
You ever watch anime in an actual theater?
I just came back from a showing of My Neighbor Totoro
When my sister and I went to see Howl's Moving Castle, we were the only ones in the theater. It was really comfy.
But when I went to see Ponyo by myself, there was a couple in there who'd clearly come there just to make out, and it was incredibly awkward.
S2 or OVA3?
Hopefully card anon comes back. Post your submissions
