Why there so little manliness on anime/manga lately? Why all the males MCs are so feminized? Do japanese girls don't like testosterone?

Usually, the "manly man" of the group is just fodder.

For example in Hunter x Hunter Youpi is a relativly minor character compared to Pouf and Pitou. Japan just doesn't like manly men

Nope.

manly characters get lusted after by gay guys instead. like me
>>
>>159925401
Also, characters who try to act manly are treated like a Joke.

I can understand a manga for kids making fun of that, but seems like japanese society as a whole despise it.
>>
I wouldn't call them "lately" but I'd try these for manly characters
Berserk
Akumetsu
Wolfen Crest
Kokou no Hito

they aren't exactly macho manly, but they show the struggle of growing up and becoming a man (sort of?)

what can we do? the entire world is becoming more and more pussifried.
>>
>>159925401
>Youpi
>fodder

Wait, what? Youpi fought like five people and won completely, while Pouf just escaped his opponents and pitou's only onscreen fight was a massacre.

It's considered gay in Japan. Just see that guy from OPM for a recent example.

BNHA seems to be taking steps in a nice direction for kids at least, hell Allmight, Endeavor and AFO are alpha as fuck, and Deku is clearly learning not to be a little pussy.

This is a Issue for kids, see what happens to kids who grows without a paternal figure, masculinity, honor... the samurai would be disgusted with nips nowadays.
>>
>>159925638
I mean, from a narrative standpoint of view, Youpi is the most irrelevant one

Pitou's is Gon's nemesis

Pouf pretty much becomes the main villain when Meruem loses his memories

Youpi is just there

You sound like some sort of parody character like those ones in Otokojuku, which doesn't even considers the importance of the mother.Get the fuck up with times, this is 2017.

Also Deku is a faggiest Shonen Jump protagonist

And he probably less screentime than Youpi when all is said is done. Just because he has a specific narrative purpose doesn't make him more relevant automatically; Youpi does a whole lot while Pitou is sitting in a room healing Komugi.

You are aware that homosexuals are attracted to men, right? You are aware of the existence of bara, too, I assume? The straight man's manliness is the gay man's homoeroticism.

It's a true shame that manliness in anime/manga is dying while it inspired so many great stories and characters. Kenshiro was the manliest mother fucker of all time yet also one of the most recognizable and influential that has ever been produced. Manliness now is a fucking joke while the wimpy figure is the hero among harems, it's disgusting.
>>
>>159925961
That's sucks, you know, to have some characteristcs you must work hard for it. If you want to be strong, if you want to be wise, but Harem protagonists are the worst. At least in Love Hina the MC tried to improve himself. But in general Harem's MCs are the most effeminate uselles trash you can find.

And we should expect that girls would lust for someone like this? Fucking bullshit.
>>
>>159925897

Not him, and I mostly agree with you, but Accelerator is not the MC except of a spinoff no one cares about, and the MC himself is an average highschool kid with magic dragon arms and PTSD from being killed a trillion times.

I agree with what you said just now about the two.Personally i'd prefer an MC who uses his brains more than brawn.Lelouch is a different case,fucker literally conquered the entire world with just wits,not to mention he managed to build an army on his own.If anything,i'm talking about them utterly filthy haremshit MCs who pretty much just whine and bitch all the time while some of them being a complete fucking Gary Stus as a pathetic cover up for their incompentence or either just plain lazy writing

East asians have always valued pretty boys over muscular men dude. Koreans, japs, the chinese you name it. And its not like pretty boys aren't valued in the west but anyone considered good looking in nipland would be pretty fucking effeminate over here.

But see, just like every masculine character in anime, he's starting off small and training his ass off to become strong. Jonathan did it, Kenshiro did it, Goku did it, they all trained to become the manly fighters they are.

90% of male protagonists are under 18 so it's physically impossible for them to be (Women are usually fully developed by 16-18, but men can be well into their 20s before they start to have a lot of muscle mass or facial hair)

Besides that a lot of protagonists are also made to be self-inserts or relatable to wimpy/autistic neets.

It's not like this, if there is an answer it would be fujo, at least in my case I've come to the point where I can hardly see a manly scene anymore without thinking "Oh the fujo are gonna like it", kinda ruined my good old love of manly anime back when I was a newshit.

What is so foreign about wanting to be manly as a man? I'm 6'4", build muscle well, And have more body hair than some wild bears. Doesn't mean I suck dick. You'd think a woman would want a guy who could protect her, what with primitive dna and all that jazz.
I like manly characters that spout off about ideals of strength and honor. That's the coolest shit and I didn't realize it until I was about 20.

Manliness is about improving yourself. Characters that are ripped have a physical indicator that they've dedicated themselves to improvement. Manliness is about protecting those weaker than you and standing up to those above you. It's about being composed but having a voice that rips through the crowd to deliver your message. Manliness is tackling your fear even if it never goes away. Always striving for something more, something greater. It's the gleam in the eyes of the child who aspires to be as amazing as you are now. Overcome any obstacle and following your own path, no one else. It's not about abandoning your feminine side or kindness either. If you don't think manliness is good and are fixated on "that's gay/bara" or what men or women like you don't understand manliness and need a new figure to guide you.
