How common is it for manga devs to accidentally create a character that's wildly more popular than they expected?
>>
>>144711682
Pretty common, especially now that anime is being shared globally. Some characters are way cooler when viewed through a different cultural context.
>>
>>144711682
>devs

Anyway probably not that much very not common maybe
>>
minor characters becoming very popular is a rather common thing in everything

just look at tr-8r, a jobber with no fucking name even.
>>
>>144711682
It only really happens when the devs luck out and pick a good voice actor for them, otherwise it's not too common.

No the scrawny guy with the weird sounding voice. Garibaldi was a main character from the get-go.

B5 spoiler: Fuck, now I just remembered Garibaldi starting to drink again. Fuck. I didn't need this.

Happens frequently, especially when the author writes the intended protagonist to be completely milquetoast.

Ya that's the guy.

>>144714250
The original work is a comic or "graphic novel", aka manga. The author didn't think anyone would like Rorschach since he's basically an insane, violent, dangerous sociopath who views the world in white and black.

No, Rorschach fully believed in what he stood for, but what he stood for was incompatible with the real world.

Ozzy also stood for something he believed in. So did the Comedian. Dan and Laurie were the normal human inserts, who were masked vigilantes for less idealistic, more self-centered reasons.

Too common. Example: Gin Ichimaru was intended to be a creepy, evil, monstrous guy with a cruelty streak and the design of a fox and a snake stuck together; yet, women *love* him, and he's got a pretty sizeable male fanbase as well. Kubo was baffled as to why Gin became popular, even claiming that the character was designed to be off-putting.

It's because he is interesting, people want to know what drove this mysterious psycho.
Also it helped that the other characters are pretty boring, and childish, Gin was an alpha male, one of the best.

None of the Class A characters get that kind of attention. Tsuyu though gets the most cover pages, and her own mini chapter. Far more than Sakura or Suacegay got within the first 100 chapters.

Rorschach was also the central character of the story more so than the rest. So while the amount of people agreeing with his philosophy was not the author's intent, I can't say it really lines up with the specific subject matter here, as I'm sure it's meant to be referring to more minor characters.
