>Airhead when it comes to anything but fighting and likes to eat a lot

This is the most simplistic and cliché personality one can give to a character, specially if it is the main character.

>Okay, now i have designed the mc for my new manga, time to think of a personality to him
>Uhhhh... He is somewhat dumb and... uhhh... he... he is not good with girls and... uhhhhh, he likes to eat a lot. PERFECT!

This is some extreme laziness and lack of imagination. This is worse and more cliché than "angsty lone wolf" or the "convenient prodigy".
Any mangaka that is too lazy or simply cannot think in anything of more depth than "dumb guy who eats a lot" should seriously consider stop working in anime/manga and find something else to do with his life that doesn't require creativity.

No. No, not really. Still just as bad at the bottom line, but not as lazy in getting to that point. But of course there is no value in the means to the end, just the end, and the end for both is shit. So i guess it doesn't really matter.

Goku was the first of that archetype. DBZ is one of the most popular, culturally important, critically acclaimed anime of all-time. Gee, I wonder why others followed suit?
>>
I think Luffy is the worst of the characters in the picture. He beats this archetype to death and has no random spurts of intelligence (except when he was fighting Crocodile and found out about his water weakness) like all the other characters in the picture. Wan Piss a shit.

I think Goku can be forgiven because he started this archetype. Other characters like Naruto and Luffy are just trying to copy the success of Dragon Ball.

Goku lacks common sense because he spent 10 years in the mountains, away from civilization, and never lived in the city. Even in Z when he lives with Chi Chi and Gohan, his house is in the mountains. He's not an airhead to the point of being retarded...he learned to drive a car easily enough, he learned to read (somehow), he knows how to fish, etc.

Naruto dosen't even heat that much, and he was only dumb before the time skip, Ichigo is far from these traits u were saying, so really its just Luffy and Goku, which are from the most successful anime/manga of all time.

>mc is a massive beta that has to be beat women off with a stick

Its probably just as popular as yours OP. I guess it wish fulfillment/self-insert on part of the creators, but I'd love to see a more outgoing MC get a steady girlfriend and have the relationship actually develop.

Like, a pretty common scene is some girl wanting the d and betamax being all embarrassed and shit and trying to have the girl stay modest, but I don't know anybody who would do that if a girl offered herself to them.

I'm only on episode 9 so far, but pic very fucking related.

Any typical shounen archetypes.

Uck, thanks for reminding me about Eureka Seven. It's so highly praised but I had to drop it at about episode 30. That's 3/5 of the show and basically nothing had happened, no characters had been explored past their most basic layers, nothing was being explained or even given hints toward in regards to the plot and backstory, and it was all just so boring. One of the more definitively overrated shows out there.

well these series managed to sell extremely well. As again remember that nips fucking LOVE these characters. They are also easily acceptable by westerners and younger audience.

This. Sakura has always been an overt BITCH to Naruto. This is why Naruto never calling her so or punching her forehead in for all the beatings she dished out to him pisses me off. Naruto is a pussy whipped dignity lacking FAILURE of a protagonist.

>>122348565
It also helps with story when your character is ignorant so that things get explained to him for the viewers sake. Goku not knowing about capsules is something that most people in the Dragon ball world would know but you, the viewer, would be just as in the dark as he is. So his ignorance makes a reason to explain something.
>>
>>122348689

Probably. It's not even like luffy is just dumb. He knows how the world works, just not the details. He's aware of his overall ignorance and made a crew just so he wouldn't have to think about most of that shit.

I never thought about that, but now you mention it, oh well.

I think the simplifying also works even better if there are good and bad guys only, these characters usually end up in these kind of stories.
You never feel bad for antagonists, or never think about that the MC gone too far or done something terrible.

>>122348822
And that makes them come off as "lesser males." Men who let women beat them up and disrespect them are lame and do not come off as charismatic among other men.

Nami being the TRUE leader of the SHs annoys me and its obvious Oda became a complete white knight faggot once he married & his daughter was born.

u do realize the main characters get hit by the girls just for the comedy aspect right? Ur not suppose to take it seriously. It happens in almost ALL animes

>Nami being the TRUE leader of the SHs annoys me
She's the navigator.
Of course she is.

>and its obvious Oda became a complete white knight faggot once he married & his daughter was born.
Nami has actually got better with the angry straight man garbage in recent times compared to the early parts of the story.

Tsundere doesn't have to have both sides dedicated to the same guy. Being bitchy to everyone except one person they are nice to is another kind of tsundere.
All the "dere" types can be like that. That's why Hancock and Juvia are yandere. They are a half ton of crazy, especially when someone threatens their interest, but towards heir love interests, they are just blushing school girls.
>>
>>122349031
Besides. It's not like Nami was the only one who'd kick luffy's shit in when he was being Stupid. Most of the SH gave and took their licks except Nami, Robin and Chopper. And that has more to do with society's issues with women getting beaten up for comedy.

You're wrong, and all of the interesting stuff happens in the last two seasons.

Eureka is a legitimately wonderful character that is a normal insecure teenage girl, a child trying to be a mother, a guilt-ridden ex-soldier, and humanity's savior. She's an odd mix of a variety of tropes, and is easily one of the most interesting female leads to ever exist.

Renton is a boy that just wants to be a world-famous lifter, but quickly grows up and realizes he must protect his family. He's less interesting because he's just a more motivated Shinji.

They're anything but bad characters.

Except that it wouldn't be seen as funny if the mouthy bitch got socked in the kisser for pissing a guy off. So to hell with double-standards.

Enabling female characters to get away with everything has poisoned entertainment media. And IRL it has ruined civilization. Like that man in India who was castrated and then murdered under a FALSE accusation of rape by a cunt.

Tsunderes are only tsun and or dere to their love interests, they can be nice towards other people.

Also most tsunderes are never bitchy towards other people.

Those weren't hinted at whatsoever in the first 3/5 of the show, which means they were handled poorly for a show that long.

I'm gonna get shitposted in reply for using "buzzwords" but she was literally just a boring Rei clone. Maybe if the show was focused on the fact that she's a child trying to be a mother, that could have been developed more into a redeeming factor for the show.
Renton's a kid who wants to hang out and surf with his idol, the cool dude on the magazine covers. Except that guy is an ex-military child abuser and his entire crew of laid-back losers are all supposed to be taken super seriously even though they all act like children themselves.
At least Nerv employees knew how to act professional and like they know what they're doing, the Gekkostate is always on the run from the world military but they have a guy who literally just takes pictures on-board, wasting resources.

That's why his love interest is a ballbusting cunt who bosses him around and even though she's a bitch every piece of shit says "She'll be a good housewife."
