Moralfags use to be pretty good.

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:

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

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.

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.

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

>>133938350
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.

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.
