Do you prefer edgelords or moralfag mc's?
I prefer a fine balance. Extremes are always bad unless you really know what you're doing - which is almost never the case with anime. Pity.
On a side note:
>P5 MC is looking like another Mr. Perfect edgelord
>game probably won't have dual audio despite all-star seiyuu cast
Fuck you too, Atlus
Moralfag, but not to an extreme. Shirou-tier is too far.
Edgelord MCs can be good in theory but the problem is that they're normally cutouts meant for angsty teenagers to self-insert as
Especially if they have an edgy rival too
Anti Magic Academy
It's one of those "adaptations of light novels that will never reach the cool parts" thing going on, sorry.
But their first fight is scheduled in a few weeks though.
Edgelords who end up as comical hipsters.
Moralfags who get crazy and murderous but only under the specific circumstance that they really hate the person in question and not just as a direct response to "m-muh nakama" being hurt.
Gon was pretty good for that one, it was building for a while.
In the introductory arcs, unfortunately.
I hate to use the "go read the LN" argument but the adaptation is really killing the over the top chunni fun
Moralfags turning into edgelords is what we need more
I like pragmatic MCs that do what needs to be done and are not afraid to dish out shit to those who deserve it, even if it means being a little edgy.
why does Persona have such a boner for high school-tier edginess
Moral fags to their own detriment.
Why is Kaiji so righteous?
Kaiji is literally the only moralfag I adore
>Someone like the MC from GJ-bu is a beta done right,
mah fucking nigga
but honestly the only reason why I believe this is because he's moe af, it's really hard to imagine that he's a high school male
He's basically a trap dressing not as a trap
for the most part
So I don't know how much that is "done right", but it's definitely the only beta type that isn't obnoxious
Edgelords are always more fun.
Doesn't mean I root for them, but I do enjoy all the shit they can do and their eventual fall from grace.
Best archetype for leads here. The edgy parts of Revy leaked onto Rock and the moralfaggotry of Rock is leaking onto Revy.
>edgelord is an anagram of elder god
This man has the right of it.
it really was.
I need to save more pages from it.
It is interesting to see how /a/ hasn't actually changed much over the years even though the 4chan as a whole has become more religious and conservative .
I prefer the
>Just a normal hs/ms normal students you can find anywhere
Moralfags beat the shit out of their enemy and are usually the underdogs.
Edgelords are keikaku masters that kill their enemies and have some lame speech to go with it.
I'll take my badass beatdown MCs any day of the week.
Moralfag who's gone too far until he become an edgelord
Emiya Shirou is the only one left.
>there will never be a better, edgy character in any medium
I am gar for him.
Why do people even act like they have any idea whatsoever what character he will have?
>His character bio says that he isn't as he first seems.
>So that totally means that he is an edgelord motherfucker!
>I know because the trailer had 2 seconds of him bleeding and smiling!
The secret to doing edge right: giving them a soft side.
It's pretty self explanatory if you want an explanation of it:
Leader of the whole squad, his entire team gets taken out and he finds out his waifu was killed far earlier and replaced with a doll that acted similar. Sells his soul in order to take revenge, and his gun follows him around pretending to be his waifu just to piss him off and keep the thought of revenge first thing in his mind. And he also diverts all his healing power he gets just to keep his waifu doll alive.
The series does get quite edgy in it's later parts, the anime is likely only going to touch on it right at the end though.
"Edgy" as a word has lost meaning a long time ago . Now everything that has black or red on it is edgy.
Welcome to /v/eddit
The anime itself isn't doing too well in differentiating itself from those two, I wouldn't blame you.
Goofy MC's with an edge side to them are the absolute best.
Those with weak morals are generally pretty boring and shallow. Moralfags at least have the potential to have strong conviction and force interesting situations because they won't necessarily do what's most convenient for them. The internal struggle of moral characters can be compelling, something that edgelords lack unless they develop into moralfags.
Obviously the best is being so moralfag your morals make you edgelord then moralfag again
I only watch shows about edgelords if their evil brings about their downfall
Sometimes some edgy manga has the MC kill people for the sake of killing, usually using "berserk mode" or something similar as an excuse.
I like characters who are more pragmatic and somewhat cynical.
mendokusai nothing personnel omoshiroi
Kaneki turning into edgelord is what made TG fun
Where's the option "none of them"? Both are a disgusting piece of shit.
Came here to post this. How can one man be so based as to be the good kind of both edgelord and moralfag simultaneously?
Using the most obvious example, I can prove that it can be done well.
I like edgelords more, but there is almost no well done edgelords in manga, and most authors will pussy out and turn the edgelords mcs into ultra moralfags in the end.
An edgelord can be interesting if he's shaking up a corrupt status quo, rather than just being a dick for the sake of dickishness.
A moralfag can be interesting if he is a human being who remains true to his principles despite being sorely tested, rather than a pure unblemished angel.
I just prefer interesting MC's.
ONE OF THE FEW BEST EDGY AND MORAL CHARACTERS, PROPERLY EXECUTED.
You've met your match. If only they included more moments of apathy.
He was edgy for his morality and it was pretty great. It was a fucking ride, shame it'll never get an animu, I'd like to hear someone voice him.
The problem with moralfag MCs is that they normally tend to not get anything fucking done. They just hide behind "that's wrong!" instead of saying what could be done. Edgy MCs end up being more fun because they take a more violent approach to the situation and try to make a change.
Shirou as mentioned already is fun because he actively tried to achieve his goals instead of being a stale piece of bread.
I like goofy MCs that can get shit done when they need to. While Gin has a wodden sword he can get serious and bring out real ones to kill without crying about it.
I can't actually think of any mcs that fit the definition.
>shame it'll never get an animu,
Of course it won't. The manga doesn't follow the trope of glorifying Nippon and instead dares to challenge the ideals that their politicians spout.
I'm not surprised that an actually great manga doesn't get any anime but the garbage ones do.
Shame his other manga was crap.
Kaneki is every Linkin park song personified.
CRAWLING IN MY SKIN
THE WOUNDS WILL NOT HEAL
is there a name for otherwise goofy MCs who enter NOW IVE LOST IT mode when shit gets real?
This, but I want them also to be executed
F A B U L O U S L Y
Red and black does not equal edgy
Rapist MCs are the best. That's why Haruto was so great when he went mental
The best choice indeed.
We wouldn't feel the irrationality because they look really normal, yet still never failed to give us the excitement in a positive way.
I find a protagonist that tries to be good more likable than an asshole.
