What is the Catcher in the Rye of anime?

Is there an anime where the MC is an edgy cynical loser, but the average viewer thinks he's actually cool?

What? Are you saying that you think the average person thinks Holden Caufield is cool? Literally everyone who has read the book mentions how is he is sort of a whiny bitch. What.
>>
>>138766981
Yeah, and how fucking stupid they are for focusing on and repeating that. Holden is meant for sympathy really.
>>
>>138766981
The average reader of Catcher in the Rye does, given that most people read it as teenagers.

Then they grow up and realize Holden is a douche and he's not persecuted, but an idiot.

>>138766981
I thought, this kid is autistic and I feel shitty for being anything like him.
Also, don't insult FLCL like that OP.
>>
>>138766863
Does this mean Evangelion is the anti-Catcher in the Rye, since Shinji is actually pretty average but everyone hates him and thinks he's the biggest loser ever?
>>
>>138766403
Catcher in the Rye is the original Oreimo

Araragi is pretty optimistic and outgoing though, as a whole.

What you didn't like the part where Holden rapes his sister, Phoebe?

i wish i could make tears that big

jesus christ the hair looks awful

Basically, Evangelion

The real Catcher in the Rye of /a/ is Onani Master Kurosawa but for anime I would say FLCL or Oregairu.

I've always thought Kyon was pretty similar. They're both the protagonist and the narrator, but neither are particularly good at being trustworthy storytellers for the readers.
