Why do you want to be a superhero, anon? It's a dead end that only leads to suffering.

Every boy has dreamed of being a superhero once in their lives. You won't know for sure if it is a dead end that leads to suffering.
>>
>>119506971
Shirou does.
>>
i would much prefer to be a magical girl than a superhero, thank you very much
>>
Sounds like my normal life, except without the saving people.
>>
Who's more chuuni, a super hero or a magical girl?

I'm thinking the super hero because he actually goes out of his way to create a uniform, while for the magical girl it's just part of her powers.
>>
I dunno, the other Shirou seemed to have turned out alright as a superhero (if you can call him that). He got by on it for over half a century and came out no worse for wear
>>
>>119509289
i think magical girl is more chuuni for me because i am a boy

Not a hero, all I want is to be a god.

Going by anime, that's probably way less powerful than either magical girl or super hero.
But it would also be really cool. I wonder what kind of excuses you can come up with as a God to not attend middle school.

If you could be a hero, just an ordinary guy who suddenly does something heroic and becomes known and celebrated as a hero, would you do it?

You could not go back to your old life. and you would constantly be in danger. You don't have to be an action hero, but after that point you'd be obligated to continue being heroic in whatever manner you did the first time. Odds are, you won't survive more than a few years, but your death will be suitable heroic to inspire those who knew of you.

Would you do it? Would it be worth it?
>>
>>119515544
I wouldn't, but I sure would admire someone who could.
>>
>>119515544
Yes. I would do it. Do I meet other heroes on my short journey?
>>
>>119506898
Because the ideal is beautiful enough to be pursued with all my might even if it might lead to suffering.
>>
>>119515544

I may as well. I've got nothing going for me anyways.

No idea. It's your life. Do we have "heroes" in our world, like we might in our chuuni head delusions? Is that the kind of hero you'd want to be, the sort who fights off whatever nameless mooks you might see as evil, or the sort who pulls kids out of a burning building when the firefighters won't rush in?

What is a "hero" to you/us? We don't live in a world with james bond super villains, no one great evil to fight. Would you be someone who takes a stand against a bunch of terrorists, or maybe the sort of guy who rescues people in trouble? Maybe you'll overthrow the government in some far flung african country, or eastern europe.

If you die after a few years of your fight, would it truly be worth it? If being a hero were something that important to you, after experiencing it, would anything else in life seem interesting or consequential? The little things that bring us /a/nons joy in our daily lives would certainly pale in comparison to being a celebrated hero. Even if you don't dig the fame and public adoration, it has to be something to know how admired you are, and that you've inspired many. Would a life of obscurity after that even be that interesting?

I've given this a lot of thought. I think if, even if it would end in tragedy at the end, to be a hero would be worth it. Even if you die, or don't believe in an afterlife, to leave that legacy would be better than anything else you could do in life- and life ends eventually anyway.

To think I would find someone who thinks similarly as me. In the scenario you spoke, ''A guy who does something heroic and gets celebrated as a hero'', I assumed that I would get the chance to save a lot of people. Maybe kill someone evil. Even though our world doesn't have the evil as they are shown in the our mediums, in this case, I assumed we had. If I would get the chance to stop someone like that, I would take it. But does that mean I want the super villains to appear? Maybe. Hell if I know. However, I would even take the choice to stop a terrorist group, or to ruin a scheme that would had ended up killing a lot of people.
Even if that would mean that I would be hunted to the end of the world, I still would. I don't even want the fame, honestly.
I'm just bored of the world. I am chuuni, that is true. But I don't know. Maybe I want the pain and suffering. I want to fight. That might be the reason why I liked the Sparks Linear High, End 30 and the normal end in Heaven's feel so much. The difference, is that I wouldn't mind the tragedy.I would take it over the happy ever after. And to your question - I couldn't go back to the regular day-to-day life after being a hero.
Sorry, I didn't meant to spill my chuuni so much, but well, I'm anonymous.
btw, nice trips

>>119516764

I feel a lot like you anon. We are chuuni brethren, but given how much of our society is based on escapist media with a focus on a single, often tragic hero that the audience is meant to relate or insert with, I think it is a very common theme.

I only ask about the death making it worthwhile at the end because I think a hero who just doesn't ever face resistance, or who always wins, isn't fun. I wouldn't want to be Onepunchman, or Onii-sama. Someone like Shirou is much more interesting than Superman.
>>
>>119518362
We are indeed brothers. I never liked superman. I liked Batman instead, because he had a struggle. He trained to become strong, he wasn't born with it.
And yes, with all the problems Shirou had, he made a great fucking hero when he needed to be one.
Anyways, nice meeting you.

A lot of Japanese 'super heroes' have their costumes instantly conjured for them as well.
