No. A Talented person or a genius starts out learning shit way faster or being better at stuff.
If he doesn't invest work in it he just stays at a certain level.
A normal person isn't all that good at stuff, and will never get beyond a certain point without investing a lot in it. Probably so much that he's got no time for other shit.
>>
>>133140576
Genius is the one who learns his shit faster, some people just got talent, they can understand certain stuff better, learn quicker, some are better in sports than most, but every kind of talent got it's limit and in majority of cases hard work overcomes talent.

thats the point of being genius, a no-genius person can't invest time in something specific like that.

>>133141829
Being able to work hard is a talent too.

>A no-genius person can't invest time in something like that

Lie. I'm pretty meh at martial arts and i did it 6-7 times a week for 1,5-2 hours.
I got pretty good but there was always this sucker that was better.
Inba it was my brother who did less

What you can invest in something doesn't have to do anything with how good you are at it.
As long as you hold a interest in something and it's somewhat fun for you, you will invest time in it.

And I'm saying you never really worked on your martial arts at a high enough level to be able to judge that from personal experience.
>>
>>133142974
and i'm saying you don't really know what your talking about.
If you really want to invest time something then you'll find it.
Doesn't matter how good you're at it as long as you have fun or hold an interest in what you're doing.

Every time I think about this it bothers me. What do you become if you DO beat them? Doesn't that then make you better than them? Wouldn't you just become the new 'genius' or whatever? It reminds me of why I got bored with Ippo, because suddenly he wasn't really the underdog anymore, just a person who saw himself as one still.

I don't know, look at Ippo for example. Even when you're better than them you still don't feel like you are generally. I know anytime I've succeeded at anything I still felt like it was a fluke or something. It's like you win but you still lose, because they've got their shit together while you just got this one win.

No you are still inferior to them because they can still work hard when you can´t
are still popular when you aren´t and so one.
>Wouldn't you just become the new 'genius' or whatever
No.It´s just a search for something you can be genuine proud of.
Nothing more nothing less.

What I'm saying is, I wonder if being a loser is less a status and more of a mindset some people are stuck under. I don't think winning alone makes you a winner, now. It's like, the mentality to win is what makes them better.

>>133144516
Yeah, that's kinda what made me see why he always sees himself as a loser even when he does outwit someone.

It's implied in all the other routes + endings though that she does crush them eventually

It just happened in Kazuko!route that she did it a bit earlier, hoping that Wanko would find a new path. I actually really enjoyed that route, even if it was depressing.

Why is this trope so prevalent in anime?

There's no difference between the two. Geniuses are geniuses because they work hard to get there.
There are people who are talented and can learn something faster than others, but even they require hard-work to get anywhere decent.

Why is this trope so over-used, and popular?
