Is there a single more blatant example of a Mary Sue in anime?
Yang Wenli was essentially a Mary Sue, even when compared to Reinhard.
He's not really a Mary Sue, in that he's not a fanfiction character. The term's not used for canonical characters in an author's works.
I do like him quite a bit, however. Mahouka is not really an interesting setting, and the anime is boring - But the objectivism, semi-fascist rhetoric and ubermensch stuff is a uniquely hilarious combination to watch.
I also like that Tatsuya's powers are actually achievable by anyone. Seriously, this is the crux of the character: What makes him utterly broken? It's not his POWERS. Technically, his power is atomic manipulation, but you would die from sheer pain if you tried to do what he died.
No, what makes him superhuman is his mind. They emotionally lobotomized him, and in the process - They freed him.
yeah but she gets that power at the end of the flask plan arc, before that they mostly kicked her ass, and it was completely useless in the minus arc since it's basicallly 120% times a negative number.
Then the treasure arc her MC spot was replaced by the love interest, not to mention a more bullshit broken character with quadrillion powers
She gets reduced to a damsel in the black marriage arc
then she gets her ass kicked by a greek hero it had to be the new MC that defeats him in the end
she's as much of a mary sue as Gohan from DB
>lol I'm just invincible aint gotta explain shit
>he was out-done by Goku in almost everything.
Not really no, at all.
Goku surpassed Gohan after he stopped training because he just didn't give a shit. Even then Toriyama lists Gohan's power as 100 and Goku at 97 in a chart from the RoF BDs.
Gohan will always be more powerful as long as he gets some special training for 2 days or some shit that Toriyama loves to pull out his ass.
He's not a Mary Sue though since he gets trashed all the time.
Masaki stop being so butt hurt you lost
What a fucking absurd "character" this guy is. More like a physical embodiment of a power fantasy than a character.
>Invincible = mary sue
Next you're gonna say Doraemon is a mary sue
I still think one of the worst moments of wasted potential was not having Masaki try to ask Miyuki for a dance and Tatsuya going: -"My sister doesnt wan´t your company, shoo shoo. SNAP!"
All in all Mahouka would have been better if it had more intentional comedy. The all serious business all the time was fun, but it kinda got dull.
