Why does villains always lose in anime and manga? I mean every time the villains are about to complete their goals the
Hero always appears at the last minute and beats him senselessly without any mercy. Why can't they win for a change? I mean who wouldn't want that?
Villian are way cooler than the Hero 99% of the time anyway so it's not like it's a bad thing.

There should be a series where the main characters are villains against the heroes who are portrayed as the bad guys.

But we already have one piece.

But history can do so much to hide the fact that the villain did horrible things to achieve his victory and it can't certainly change the fact that the villain is morally evil.

You mean in every fucking media? American, mainly.

Anyway, villains almost always win in Hentai.

In any well-constructed narrative, the antagonist is basically the protagonist of their own story. Recall the two basic subtypes of drama: comedy and tragedy, where the only difference is that the protagonist is either rewarded for their virtues or is punished for their sins.

Also it's reductionist to just lump together "protagonist" with "good guy" and "antagonist" with "villain", see Death Note for a well-known example.

When people discuss Alexander, they talk about the Hellenistic influence that he brought to the world, and the great feats of conquest that he pulled off.
Nobody really talks about all the deaths he is responsible for, or his homosexuality, except to make a point about being unbiased.
He's a hero now. Not a villain.

Are lakes evil when puppies drown in them?
Are fires evil when they burn down your house?
Are air currents evil when they make a mess of your hair?
Are ants evil when they carry off your lunch and your grandmother to be eaten later?
Are cannibal coworkers evil when they forget to take a shower after a nightly feast and smell of delicious things while you're trying to focus on your job?
It's just their nature.

>>150128477
It's possible but not necessarily applicable to every protagonist there is.
>>
>>150128477
implying fate/stay night is a well-written story and not a complete spergfest

also from the perspective of the antagonist, who has his own goals and aspirations, and is likely entirely justified with regards to his own life experience, the protagonist is some jerk who shows up to mess everything up. most good antagonists are sympathetic, flawed and endearing as people just like the protagonist, the drama just arises from the clashing over limited resources or competing ideologies. the only time you'll see clearcut "this dude is evil" is in morality plays or kids' stories (or pulpy dimestore fare, which CAN rise above that station to become Good Fiction if it can convey the nuances of characterization that feels like it's based on how actual human beings act and not just other fictional characters)

that's a Man vs God conflict, or maybe Man vs Nature. Either way once you enter the realm of the spiritual it has to be battled in the spiritual. Also the more important concern is the path of the dramatic action and the interplay between the characters, not just the end state. you can have a psychic oversoul tornado all day ling but if the actual character development and narrative arc is anything short of incredible you'll end up with a boring story

Judging by my point of view it's evil if the thing takes the decision upon itself, even if it's just following its nature. A tornado can't do that, Mr. Skeletal can.

Well-intentioned extremist who commits evil for the sake of good is always great, but they must always fall.

You CAN argue, for example, that pic related did succeed in the end because she did manage to make at least some of the magical girls she kidnapped and forced into what is basically an extreme version of Clue, but in an RPG take into heart the morals she wants them to exemplify, being to stand up for justice, friendship, and the moral good.

Though, heroism is always cool, you're just being an edgy fuck for thinking villains can be cooler.

That's why the nips are based.

Unlike comics, they can't reboot the same characters in a new way. So the heroes need to win, even if the long term villains gets a few one ups on them

>Anyway, villains almost always win in Hentai.
That's why Raidy and Rance are the best. Crossover when?
>>
>>150129347
Rance is a good guy though. He rapes his women "gently".
>>
>>150127881
Because then the villain would have to be the protagonist, unless you want a really garbage story where the last boss who had 0 screen time wins and that's the end. Might as well be a 4 koma story at that point.

Do they lose when they have ruined the MC's life and killed all his friends, family and love interests?

Take Kotomine. The guy lost the last fight, but that doesn't mean he wasn't able to make the MC's life HELL till then. He's probably laughing somewhere at the bottom of a fire pit.

What are you talking about? In anime, almost always the villain wins. They are just called heroes and we see everything from their point of view, but they are still villains.

You should read yakuza manga. It's full of victorious villains.

Haha, no. The villains that won simply proclaimed themselves heroes and written the history as they liked. Take any Roman conquest for example.

You need to watch more anime, or at least give up shounenshit as an example

There are plenty of anime with bad and bittersweet endings.

Im sorry to tell you this anon. But that is cuckold thinking. You might think it isnt because you are not familiar with it, but as a/pol/ack who actually studies this stuff i can certainly say that you are thinking as a cuckold. You want someone who will do harm to you to will over someone who will help you. You probably want them both to fuck your gf/wife too, dont you?

>those evil gauls dare living on the territory we just discovered! we need to punish them!
Romans were right 99% of the time tough. They had a better culture, it needed to be spread.

>>150127881
Same for fiction in general. It's a matter of justice. We want to believe good will triumph over evil, that the good are rewarded and the bad are punished. The opposite is depressing, like reality. It's also aesopy about right behavior and values. Sadly people (particularly kids but the older are also susceptible) will think the one who won must have been in the right and his actions and behavior are ultimately vindicated. Do you want kids to think the lying, cheating, backstabbing, mean person is the one they should emulate?

What I think you resent is how it's taken for granted you should side with a "good guy" and that the good will always win. It's a problem that comes up frequently in WWE wrestling. Faces will get lukewarm reactions or even boos because they're boring or irritating, while a heel may be cheered for being more charismatic and passionate in comparison. Above all, people want to be entertained and if you work by what "should" be the case, you have to make people buy it. I'm totally fine with the villain willing if I can buy it.

>>reduced Kalar rape by over 20,000 percent
You can't reduce anything by over 100%.
>>

Maybe reduced rape by 100% and increased negative rape by 19,900%
>>
>>150130221
This. Because all the kalars were now fucking Rance and he certainly wasn't getting raped

Actually, can't we just give the last boss almost equal screen time from the beginning? It would make the final conflict more intresting.

Teleporting behind somebody is fine.
Disregarding your defense just because you think your attack is going to be effective is not.
