So, I was watching Gundam: The Origin and it dawned on me, why isn't Char the protagonist of the original?

Unlike Amuro he actually has a reason to participate in the war, he's got motivation, a backstory, relations to other cast members. Also, he's not an autistic bitch that gets triggered into an existential crisis whenever someone is trying to kill him. And where does this meme even come from? Ask any soldier out there and he'll tell you that killing enemies isn't what fucks you up, it's losing buddies and friends and remembering your mistakes (whether real or imagined) that led to their deaths or injury that haunts you.

Yes, he's a bit of a Gary Stu, but he's actually morally conflicted, or at least it's very easy to make him so considering his sister, his views of the Zabis and his friendship with Garma.

And on the topic of Gundam protagonists in general, why are they all shit? You've either got whiny cowards with space autism like Kamille or Banagher or emotionally stunted, bonafide autists like Setsuna and the murder midget from Iron Blooded. Why aren't there more balanced protagonists like Berine that don't start crying like bitches at the mere thought of having to hurt someone but aren't complete psychopaths that can and will kill on a mere whim? Why do none of them actually behave like humans?

And even if you want to full batshit, why not the Feddie pilot from Thunderbolt that manages to be an unlikeable asshole, but at least one you can empathize with him and understand where his behavior originates from?

Hell, why are they still making the protagonist be teens, stretching suspension of disbelief to its limits? I could accept Amuro just stumbling upon the Gundam in his hour of need, but pulling the same fucking trope over and over again? Does Gundam as a franchise really need to be as repetitive in that regard as cape movies are in the origin stories of their heroes?

It had more to do with directors changing mid season.


File: 9fed4c188676f4a⋯.png (94.57 KB, 400x301, 400:301, uso.png)

I've only just finished episode 19, but does Uso get any less.. boring over the course of Victory? Uso seems like a pretty standard Gundam protag, with his only interesting quality so far being that he's not even old enough to be a Pokemon trainer. In fact, the only characters that are really gelling for me are Cronicle, his sister whose name I've forgotten, and Shakti.

Also, the F91 similarities here are driving me nuts. Why did they even bother making both if they were just gonna reuse a bunch of stuff from F91 in Victory?

I've heard people say Uso being a kid was a network demand Tomino responded to by changing nothing but his physical appearance and writing him like an adult.

It makes more sense than any other explanation.

>Because these are cartoons for children and the protagonist need to be relatable for them

Biggest pile of bullshit. A lie that has been repeated countless time. A protagonist doesn't have to be your exact age or have your exact same life to be relatable.

As I kid, I preffered older characters. Still do. Fuck kid MC's.

Anyone have an episode number?



>I get the feeling they wanted to write them as complex adults

3/4 of the crew of the ship are just one dimensional gimmicks there to fill up screen space, they never get any development or time in the limelight whatsoever.

>like they were supposed to have a heart of gold, but they were all just selfish, petty, violent, and spiteful.

This most definitely. Their captain is a pedo, the woman in love with him knows he's a pedo lusting after the albino jailbait and does nothing about it but pine after him and hope he'll fuck her again. Talk about Stockholm syndrome.

Our captain beat up a kid in front of all of us in a childish fit of jealousy? That's hilarious, now let's have a slapstick humor episode to remind the audience our cast has good points too!

And let's not forget that not only are they a group of rebels fighting against the government, but also a world popular troupe of surfers that get their images published in magazines.


The story is garbage, the entire cast is made up of unlikeable cunts, the protagonist might as well not exist for all the good he does and the pacing is atrocious.

I still don't understand why it has such a high rating. The short mech fights, the music and Eureka being a moeblob surely can't counterbalance all the stupid shit the show throws at you every episode.



>Bounen no Xamdou

>Aquarion Evol

Why is modern mecha so fucking awful?



Because they try to make the shows about everything but mecha blowing each other up.

The last thread has finally fallen off of the board. Time to make a new thread as we await the next chapter.

To recap:

>Deku takes himself up to 8% power and moves fast enough to surprise Bakugou

>Eraserhead was going to stop the fight but, it looks like someone is in his way probably All-Might

>Character polls drop this week

What's the standard procedure for Christmas when it comes to Shounen Jump? They normally have a two week break or something like that, right? Will this fight conclude in the next chapter or will we have to wait until next year to see Deku and Bakugou come to an understanding through their fists?

It's "Yuri on Ice!!!" Because there is a man named Yuri dancing on solid water.



3d never liked us in the first place, plus there's feminism and SJWs. There'll always be a double standard.



>What happens when every single girl shits on you not because you don't look like chad,

Anon isn't that already the dating scene?



In the west, the main audience for these shows are tumblrites, women who are already outside any male weeb's dating scene for a multitude of reasons. The vast majority of 3DPD won't have seen any anime whatsoever, let alone fujoshi-targeted shit.

Even if that wasn't the case and it was more widespread, it wouldn't go anywhere good because female-targeted shows, especially ones written by females, will often have a substantially different values presented, this gap is what gave birth to 2DPD, so it's not as though there is some common ground to be reached.



>what will happen

I don't have to worry about that shit because I already look like your average cute guy from anime.

He really just wasn't fleshed out enough as a character. I feel like the writers tried to keep him from having too much screentime so as to not make it blatantly clear he was the murderer, but as a result his exposition for doing the things he does got pushed all the way to the end and feels tacked-on.

If Erased had twice the number of episodes, they probably could have done a lot more building up of characters and the setting to get you REALLY invested in everyone. You get that way for the first girl, but that's because she has major screentime for multiple episodes, while the other two victims are really only there when it's their "turn" to be saved.



So some fucker with a botnet voted a billion times for his fap-fuel meme anime?

Don't tell me this surprises you. We can't even keep the literal fucking Presidential election free from corruption; you really think there's a single contest or poll or anything in the world that isn't rigged?

Didn't know Oshino Meme had a sister.

This is my third time making this post. The other two were in unrelated threads. Maybe i'm starting to lose it.



That's my point. Why do they keep churning out these shitty, predictable stories that are nothing but cheap pandering and then don't even have the decency of giving it a proper ending?

Might as well separate yourself from the pack and go the extra mile because the only other alternatives left is the usual "open" ending or having worst girl win.



Probably because they deem this safe, just like how EA thinks releasing the exact same esports games every year with no changes whatsoever is safe



I'm kind of curious why they wouldn't consider a harem ending a safe bet. Not like anyone but the usual suspects watch these shows.

Genuinely asking.



These adaptations often exist just to bait people into reading the source, and concluding the story with an acceptable ending presumably wouldn't be very effective

Out of all of the blunders that Kubo has made, making Aizen the main villian was a horrendous decision for the following reasons:

-incredibly bland/uninspired design

-no back story; I don't buy the bullshit excuse of wanting Aizen to be "mysterious"

-always spouting incredibly lame/dry pseudo-philosophical bullshit

-no explanation on how the Hogyoku was created

-ridiculously overpowered shikai

-has to know and master everything

-lets Ichigo become stronger for no reason, then bitches and moans about how a human has surpassed him. You let it happen, dumb shit.

-only wins fights through trickery

-dicking around by chasing Ichigo's friends and family in Karakura Town instead of creating the Oken

-absolutely laughable transformations

-loses to a sealing Kido

I wouldn't go so far as to call Kubo a bad writer, but he's a very unorganized one. You can tell he just bullshitted his way throughout the entire series; everything that involves Aizen has such an unnatural flow to it. Then again, this is a problem that permeates Bleach.

How the hell can you defend insane power gain by mentioning a previous insane power level?

We're talking about a guy who became a shinigmi without knowing anything or having any training, and he's been a (temporary)shinigami for about two months before SHTF.

He then proceeds to beat true shinigame who have been properly trained and have years and years of fighting experience.

New manga got translated today.

It all started with making cookies, eventually they'll start making babies.

No, but would you mind explaining? I have no idea what you're talking about.


Well this is fucking garbage, I'm sick of gyarus. They're always sluts.




But that's wrong, Galko is a slut.

>>That entire segment on audiophiles

I can actually relate to this on so many fucking levels



>this year.

Anon, it's the current year already.


Out of all anime I'm following this season episode 3 of Akiba was the best episode this week.

The whole segment on audiophiles was 11/10, the part where he pulls the fucking gold plated cable killed me.

I'm really fucking glad they're not afraid to make stupid jokes that only people into these stupid hobbies would get, they know who their audience is really well.



I think that might have been a cable made out of solid gold, or something.

I also recognize those sea-shell speakers. I saw them in a Robb Report mag years ago and I think they're over 50k.

What did ya keep readan after the mango didn't update fast enough or the anime was over?

And what did you find while browsing and decided to keep reading since there's jack all chance of it being adapted because it is either gook or chink?

Pic related is Your and My Asylum, a series about a guy who methodically wrecks his tormentors after suffering from years of bullying just to get summoned by a sadistic earl from another world on the winter vacation following his ultimate pyrrhic victory. The entire first novel is him using his autism powers and high school essay writing skills to prove himself useful enough to be kept from being tortured to death as a stress relief toy.

Is there a korean novel where the MC isn't severely abnormal mentally/outright psycopathic or a chinese novel that isn't about martial arts?

There's nothing subjective about it. The moment you have the protagonist go on a genocidal campaign it's the moment you need to realize you've crossed over into edgelord territory.
