Why is Hei not edgy?

He's loaded with the trappings associated with edginess.
>Black longcoat
>Suffering past
>Cold eyes
>Kills people without expression
>Nice guy persona
>Losing all his loved ones
>Loner tendencies
Even the first OP looks like a typical edgy music video.

What is so different between Hei and other edgy characters that makes all the usual features of an edgy character not have the same effect on Hei?
>>
>>124474701
Kinda felt like they didn't "ovderdo" it. Compared to some other edgelords (e.g. Sasuke),he's just a well-made character in my opinion.
>>
>>124477357
/thread

Next time don't waste our time with bait threads op
>>
It's in his relationships with the other characters. If the other characters weren't there/if he were cold to them, it would probably be a lot different. I don't really know.

he's not a massive faggot
>>
i am gay for hei

Because he only does what he needs to do, nothing more, nothing less. Most importantly, he knows how to keep his mouth shut.
>>
>>124477551
same here
>>
Because he neither angsts nor pulls the "nothing personnel" cocky bullshit, and he's actually really nice.
>>
>>124474701
Do you consider Batman to be edgy as well?
Moreover, the word edgy wasn't much of a buzzwords when DtB came out.
>>
>>124477774
I'm pretty sure "edgy" in its internet sense didn't even exist at that point.
>>
It's because in unlike other contractors, he has emotions.

The series is filled with edgy emotionless killers, but they have a reason for why they act that way.

When we first meet Hei, we expect him to act equally edgy, but are surprised when he acts more human.
>>
>>124474701
Doesn't he have pstd?
>>
>>124478077
fucking this

>world is filled with emotionless killers with superpowers and emotionless fuckdolls with superpowers
>MC is apparently an emotionless killer with superpowers
>plot twist, he actually isn't and has feelings
he is actually reverse-edgy or an edgy trap
>>
>>124479321
No anon, Sasuke in a dress is an edgy trap.
>>
>>124477638
>and he's actually really nice.

He's a murderer who tortured a woman and hit a child in the course of the show. It's probably a testament to his character that he comes off as sympathetic when all things considered, he is kind of a dick.
>>
>>124474701

He was pretending to be edgy in S1 because it was the only way he could accept and tolerate his sister as a ruthless Contractor.

In S2 he was an alcoholic
>>
>>124479690
He tortured a woman who was a mass murderer and he didn't know she reformed. And he only hit a child in the non canon season
>>
Edgy characters are often individualist and anti-authority, while Hei is basically a slave.
>>
What the fuck does edgy mean today?
>>
>>124474701
He is.
>>
>>124479915
If something looks like it was designed by a naive 12-year-old trying their best to be be dark and disturbing, it's edgy.
>>
>>124480063
I hate this buzzword.
>>
>>124474701
writing

some effort went into his character pretty much
>>
Hei IS edgy though, this whole anime isfilled to the brim with edginess actually.
Take for example the rain, there's so much rain in this anime it feels like I'm cutting myself just by watching it. It's disgusting really.

Hei is my husbando.

He has been it since 2008.

>>124480587
See >>124477357
While he is edgy,he's nowhere close to the other edgelords we know.

There weren't any in the original.
>>
>>124480982
>>124480063
Yeah.
>>
>>124480587
The series is about Hei, his edginess and all but at the same time, it isn't a story about how do you must feel about Hei.
It's just that, his life; and you like it or not, but you can't really try to understand so deeply what is going on and that's fairly great.

Also, him being an adult makes things so much better without the whole teen-drama that often appears. He's a dude that makes his own decisions, and does what he has.
>>
>>124480982
Is this fucking faggot serious?
>>
>>124474701
Because he is setup to be the one who isn't edgy compared to everyone else.
Even then, you still empathize with a lot of the contractors.
Like the big fat singing lady, or astronomy dude.
>>
>>124481857
Yes he is but I think he didn't quite understand him (>>124480924),instead he thought he claimed it was in the "original"
>>
What's wrong with his 'edginess' anyways? It works for his character and he has more background than just 'i kill people because i want to'. He also obviously has emotions for all the women in his life.

He just does what's asked of him. Yeah, being an assassin is edgy, but does that mean that you can never write an assassin character ever again?

No, I'm the faggot you're talking about. I just pointed out that I wanted it to come as close to the original as possible.

Also, my Mspaint skills aren't good enough to make cool-looking red eyes like this
>>
>>124480063
So, shows like Hannibal and anything by Clive Barker and Junji Ito?

Are you the same faggot from /v/ who ruined Bloodborne threads and ragged on Arkham Knight because of the rain?
If yes, please fuck off.

He was drunk, and was an alcoholic. People are idiots when they're drunk

>>
>>124482261
Yeah. Although Hannibal and most Clive Baker movies are actually really good, no one can deny that their subject basis and the way they handle themes is pretty fucking juvenile.
>>
>>124482975
>horror is juvenile
How so?
>>
>>124479690
>he's a murderer
I don't see what that has to do with whether he's nice. It's his job.

>tortured a woman
He tortured a psychopath and then tried to save her life.

>hit a child
I don't remember this happening in Darker than Black: The Black Contractor. Were you maybe reading fanfiction?
>>
>>124482975
>Hannibal
>really good
Fuck off and get some good taste, pleb faggot. I bet you're one of those faggots who thought that GoT, Boardwalk Empire and Lost are masterpieces.
>>
>>124483073
I just realised that you may have meant the Hannibal movies, which I have not seen since I was about 14, I'm talking about the new reboot TV show.

And no, horror isn't juvenile, but glorifying murderers, an overly cynical worldview and theconcept of revenge, is.
>>
>>124482261
Has the day really come when people on /a/ are calling Junji Ito edgy?

Really?
>>
>>124479915
Anything that isn't retarded moeshit or happy-go-lucky brain dead shounen MC
>>
>>124483254
No, they're all boring. Hannibal isn't a masterpiece, it's just enjoyable. Like DtB.
>>
>>124483305
The day has come when someone who doesn't know what "edgy" means is asking if Junji Ito is edgy.

>>124483322
>moeshit
I know this shitposting's always been around, but it seems worse the last month or so.
>>
Guys guys i figured it out! Edgy is someone who is not 100% lawful good, or i dont like him. Heading to urban dictionary.
>>
>>124483296
I don't see how the show is glorifying anything.
Almost every murderer is shown as a disgusting monster and Graham is pretty much a pathetic wreck.
Hannibal may be too perfect but that only makes him scarier as opposed to real-life serial killers people got used to over the ages.
>cynical worldview
I don't see it. It exists to help to maintain the atmosphere of hopelessness but I don't see how it's "glorified"
>>
>>124483408
>seriously getting offended at the term moeshit

Do you also check your sexuality when you get called a fag here? Jesus Christ this place has gone to shit.
>>
>>124483360
>DtB
>enjoyable
It's shit through and through. I can't name a single redeeming quality outside of the designs.
The only reason I picked that garbage show is a doll, and she didn't even get enough screentime
>>
>>124483572
Keep the shitposting to /v/.
>>
>>124474701
He is edgy but he is well written
>>
>>124483707
I'd keep it there if I went there. Do you honest to goodness believe that shounenshit, moeshit, yurishit, shoujoshit,yaoishit are terms unused by /a/nons? Are you going to blame a boogeyman instead?
>>
>>124482352

you should fuckoff for being crossboarding scum anyways

I actually have never seen this one.
