>If the MC isn't the best in his series then the series itself is shit

Do you agree with this /a/?
>>
Nah but if the MC is whack then the show is 9 out of 10 times whack as well.
>>
Nah, I like my MC humble and see him grow in power throughout the series, and also realize that there's always bigger fish than him.

Best doesn't mean strongest

Either way can be good. Gintoki manages to be a great character through the whole manga, even though he doesn't even get completely serious most of the time.
Medaka's is pretty lame for the most part, but the other characters carry her easily.

And then there are cases like Deku who're total underdogs, but then suddenly bloom.

This isn't a Sorachi quote, is it?
Is he saying that Evangelion is shit like Araki?

Best as most likable or best as the very best that no one ever was?

I consider Mai to be the best character in her series, even though she's certainly not the most powerful one.

But a good story or interesting side-characters can make a series good even if the protagonist isn't that interesting.
>>
>>133900042
The former.

>>133898879
MC should add to most situations the show presents as they are going to be in most of it. This doesn't necessarily mean the strongest or funniest. You could make the protagonist a semi decent fighter/ straight man. Kenichi from "Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple" Comes to mind, not an especially great series but the MC plays his role as MC well enough.

This is one of the dumbest opinions I've ever heard.

I like it when MC starts as shit but gets good in the end.
>>
>>133900155
But Kenichi isn't likeable at all.
>>
>>133900217
What if the MC starts on the top and slides down to the bottom?
>>
>>133900459
I have yet to see this and if i did, it wasn't memorable.

Closest thing I can think to that is Akagi and he's not the MC at that point.
