I don't understand why I'm in love with such a plain Jane like Kobayashi.
Fellow anons, can you explain?
>>
>>160866814
Kobayashi is what all wageslaves want to be. Everyone wants to come home to a loving big breasted meido and a cute daughteru. I didn't understand what "self-insert" meant until I watched this.
>>
>>160866814
normal girls are the best kind of girls.
>>
>>160866814
Because she's the only one who could possibly love you back.
>>
>>160866814
Kobayashi looks like a dude and act like one. You love yourself, not in a self esteem way but more like a selfish way
>>
>>160866814
She looks like man.
So you're probably gay.
>>
>>160866814
>plain Jane like Kobayashi

Ironically Kobayashi is pretty unique in the context of anime.

She's cute, laid back, and fun to be around when drunk. Good sense of morals and a decent all-around person. Terrible homemaker though.

Tohru is what all fujos want to be. Everyone wants to be a magical princess that wins over the dashing danso, and lives happily ever after. I didn't understand what "mary sue" meant until I watched this.

>>160866814
because she's not real. She's a male wish-fulfillment fantasy representing what the ideal woman is like to a certain subset of the population. She appeals to the fantasy that women are just like guys, with the same mindset, emotions, and relatability, just with tits and a vagina.

Look, she's into computers, just like me! Look, she's a nerdy otaku, just like me! Look, she's a lonely virgin, just like me! Isn't this wonderful that such a woman exists, that we have so much in common and we have so much to talk about? She's basically my best friend, except a good looking women I can have sex with too!

It all hides the fact that, everybody deep down knows, it's not real. It's escapism from the reality of women being dumb hormonal beasts who had miles of cock run between their legs since middle school, and have no interest nor the ability to relate a nerd like you. Wouldn't it be better if it wasn't like that? Why can't Kobayashi be normal? Why can't I marry Kobayashi?

Because she doesn't fucking exist.

I must take her virginity before Tooru.

She's a skilled professional system engineer. That's like crushing on a tennis pro because you play pingpong at the Y.
>>
>>160872281
Tohru is certain to rock her world.
>>
>>160866814
She is genuine. She has nothing to hide. What you see is what you get. She isn't some ideal replica.
>>
>>160871771
>good looking
If you like dudes I guess.
>>
>>160872308
>She's a skilled professional system engineer.
She's a python code monkey. You can practice python "programming" for a year and get a job of it, thus becoming a professional.
>>
>>160872396
In the manga, she and her nerdy friend prop up the entire company.
>>
>>160872396
Just because it's easy to become skilled doesn't mean it's not a professional skill. She's a significant asset to her company just like a lot of people could be but aren't.

Before the /r9k/ rant, it was a pretty good post
>>
>>160872479
And?

>>160872588
I was debating the fag who said it was an unimaginable distance between the audience and her as a self-insert.
>>
Because I share the same career as her, that's where the similarities end.
>>
>>160872693
What he said was kind of a hyperbole, but she probably has talent on top of whatever effort she put into learning code/programming.

For a loser, a stable job that involves working for other people probably seems unattainable regardless.

You're just projecting, and moving the goalposts of what being a loser means.
>>
>>160866814
Because beyond the superficial outer shell, this girl's inner core is solid gold.

>>160866814
simple is best

I see a pretty good basis of what a loser is right here
>>
>>160866814
Deep down, she's a lovely person. But she still has small character flaws to make her relate-able (bullying a besotted dorgaon into cooking and cleaning for her).
>>
How do I get a comfy job like Kobayashi's?
>>
>>160877295
Work really hard. Kobayashi-san works really hard. A lot of people are relying on her. So cool.

you relate to her because she's that boring loner fucker who never wants to go to a party with the group and only talks about their hobby/interests in their comfort zone, often times paired with someone who's also a loner that wants someone to talk to but has no deeper interest in their companion's hobby.

Koayashi is into maids and Takiya into vidyanime, they found something in common and bonded over it but beyond that they keep to themselves.
>>
>>160871771
There aren't many female programmers, but you're saying there are NONE of them and they're literally not real and can't exist? This seems like a shitty point made just so you can conclude "haha you are all losers for liking this character" because deprecation is the norm.

You're actually gay, but you continue to deny it in your heart. Come in Kobayashi, who is practically a man with vagina, and your gayness is happy that you found a "girl" of your type, without making you gay.
>>
>>160877687
>>160871771
There is a famous correlation stating that there are, on average, as many female programmers as there are programmers names Steve in any large organization employing programmers, sometimes called the law of Steve. I'm not sure what the Japanese equivalent of Steve is. Maybe Kobayashi.

There's no true heterosexual. Any real person will always fall short.

Sounds like /a/ has made up its mind, and it has made up its mind to call everyone gay, all the time

You should google AMD ceo, this is literally Kobayashi 10-20 years later.

Will this show be any different if Kobayashi was a dude?
>>
>>160879508
Yes. A lot of things would tie in better if Kobayashi was a male.
>>
>>160879508
The manga suggests that if Kobayashi were male, Tohru would just rape him.
>>
Because she's relatable and kind.
>>
>>160879508
Suddenly adopting a teenage girl and a prepubescent child would cause more suspicion.
>>
>>160879887
an 18 wife isn't a big deal for a 25 yo guy
>>
>>160879887
Tohru looks like a teenager to you? You must be one.
>>
>>160879997
I applaud you for the worst burn ever
>>
>>160879974
The manga even makes fun of it, anon.
Kobayashi gets a dick, sees the whole situation in a completely new light and Kanna snuggling up to her, naked in bed definitely does not earn her any plus points.
>>
>>160866814
Because he is perfect
>>
>>160866814
Kobayashi is the japanese version of Dragonborn.
>>
>>160880216
Nah, those kill dragons. Kobayashi is a dragon tamer.
>>
>>160871771
;_;
>>
>Wears a Robinson shirt
She already labeled herself as mine, fuckers back off!!
>>
>>160866814
Because Tohru is everything you want to be.
>>
>>160871771
>It's escapism
As opposed to everything else in anime, which is a factual representation of the real world.
