What's up with this bland looking MCs beating bishounens and shit?
Is this some kind of beta power fantasy of the viewers to get back at Chad who gets pussy all the time?

Pic unrelated?
Shirou's far from being a beta self-insert. Dude's pretty much the perfect husband.

It's more a stab at the pretty boy trope than anything else.

Usually a series that has pretty male characters as the heroes tends to be a shallow as fuck story, or the characters have shallow as fuck personalities.

Watching a plain looking dude wreck their shit is hilarious.

>>152348079
UBW is certainly the most shonen route of Fate, but Shirou is a more complex protagonist than the usual archetypes.

Shirou looks like an average h-doujin MC so betafags can easily self-insert to him.
Beat evil bishounen and get the girl who is out of his league.

Actually, plain looking autistic betafag special snowflake MCs wrecking pretty boys is the trope in anime.

Name 10 successful anime aimed at males in the past 10 years with a bishounen protag.
I can only think of Lelouch and Joseph Joestar but Joseph is not really a bishie but he is good looking.

I'm good thanks.

Retard, that was the 80s. No, the anime (celebrating the 25th anniversary no less) doesn't fucking count.

Why is this of no surprise to me? Right. 4chan.

>>152348729
What's the point of listing shit if you're including stuff from before the time you're asking for shows from? The Jojo anime had absolutely nothing to do with any kind of perceived trend, it was purely for the 25th anniversary of the manga. Inlcuding Joseph as an example makes absolutely no sense here. Plus he's not even a bishie in any sense of the word.

I don't think you know what that word means.

I also said that dumb nigger.

>>152349022
Don't ever reply to me again.

>>152349036
Are you going to answer the question? What relevance does he have to your point if he 1. is not a bishie and 2. doesn't have anything to do with the time it aired
Do you understand what I'm saying here? It was just an anniversary celebration. It wasn't influenced at all by the other anime/trends of ~2012, because it was a straight forward adaption of a manga from the 80s. It's irrelevant.

>bland looking
You do realize he's 3 cosmetic changes away from being the most popular male of all Type Moon right? Shirou's outward blandness is nothing more than a cover to keep you from realizing his maximum potential.
>>
>>152348079
Pic unrelated? Shirou is ripped from all those pullups and Gilgamesh is Japanese idea of a sissy.

Let me know when there's an anime MC who meets the following criteria:
>Facial hair
>Taller than 5'7" (that's ~170cm for everyone outside of freedomland)
>Weighs more than 120 lbs
>Has less than 4 girls pining for his dick
>Has parents who are not always "on vacation" or "on a business trip"
>Has a personality that makes him likable other than "being a kind person"
>>
>>152353912
>Japanes people having facial hair
You have set the bar too high. Remove thet bit and you'd get plenty MCs.

Shirou becoimes pretty good looking at 19. And he becomes even better looking in his late 20s.

OP can't reply to this

What kind of MCs fit that criteria in general outside of anime?

Complaining about bland MCs in 2017?
Should I remind you of the bland MC wave, who got constantly hit for walking in to someone changing.
You don't know how good you have it.

I have no idea who can call Shirou bland looking when he looks pretty damn rad to my sensibilities.
Maybe because he's not an overdesigned piece of shit?
