How can Sento be so cute and sexual at the same time?
Shirou could have been a great protagonist. He just doesn’t want to be a superhero, he has a real motivation thanks to his a survivor's guilt trauma, seeing Kiritsugu's happy face, and the last thing he said to Kiritsugu before he died being that he would become a superhero. Also the thing where he doesn't have fun, or doesn't think he deserves fun. And he he really believes that his goal is beautiful enough to be worth pursuing and not just an obligation. That’s at least Peter Parker-level or even Bruce Wayne-tier messed up as far as superhero origin stories go.
Unfortunately yet Fate/Stay Night does the usual mistake of generic shounen-series by trying to make its protagonist blunder about. (In order to make him more relatable, one assumes).
Therefore Shirou always has no clue what’s going on, and just sort of gets dragged about by the flow, but in the end he perseveres just by being the densest guy in the room.
Take this episode. He gets ambushed by Rin because he was wandering about in an empty school and somehow missed the fact that it was empty even as he told Rin there were people around. Rin shoots at him with bone-breaking force and he just complains that he doesn't want to fight. Rider attacks him and he makes fun of her and gets rekt because he forgot to pull out the dagger in his arm. Rin rescues him and he asks if she wants to keep trying to kill him instead of reading the mood.
It’s not like he’s a generic character at the end of it all. By the end of the story he's come into his own. But you shouldn't start out with a generic boring protagonist and then try to make such a character more interesting. A strong lead should have some kind of hook, something superficial to make you like him that will hold you over until his character develops further.
That’s what Shirou is: A character that becomes more interesting over time, but not one who is compelling for the twenty hours of shit before then.
I knew going in that Sakura forcefully NTRs Saber away from him, so I was actually pleasantly surprised by the level of working relationship they established before that happened.
Let's finish the week on a strong note.
And if it's too early, we'll just try again
ITT Post the symbolism of an anime and we try to guess it
Is Mirai Nikki good?
Where does /a/ rank Togashi shonen wise?
-pioneered the standard for big 3
-strays away from the usual shonen formula(ex: main char does everything)
How can people call this attractive?
Would you let her?
I would not mind getting smothered to death by all that junk.
I wish Anno stopped raping Eva and started making original anime again.
I really keep dreaming the day there would be an anime version of Samurai Jack, that would be the most fucking awesome based shit, but I guess that would only stay in my dreams....
>you wake up
What to do?
I tell them to get the fuck out. Onee-san is the only one for me.
Let's have another manga thread for this night.
Started reading Dorohedo after years of being put off by it's art. Finished the first volume, it's good so far, have yet to find anything conclusive plot wise though aside have to find the guy who cursed me.
Also finally finished Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou early this week, I liked it quite a bit, but don't found it a timeless masterpiece like some people claim.
Both Dorohedoro and YKK are some of my favorites. I think YKK has been a bit oversold in the past few years on /a/. I do believe it deserves that praise, but some people can be way too enthusiastic about it. Dorohedoro's biggest strength is its cast of characters in my opinion. You begin to care about people on every side of the fights, which makes it really tense watching them fight each other.
Yesterday I bought Lychee Hikari Club and am starting to read it. I read the first few chapters back when Hox started translating it years ago and then it got delayed/stopped...

>Confess to your waifu
>She says this
Do we love yuri?
Failed to do a proper stitch, but that's okay.
Lets discuss how lewd Liese and Levi are.
>those fucking legs
Arata has some good taste.
The head is a little big but I'm generally fine with Liese's character design in the anime.
I actually have some questions.
How much of a sadist is this author?
Pretty much pic related Misaki, and then I guess that maid chick are the best girls.
Odin is fucked because of reasons.
Misaki is also fucked, but given what
Mitsuari'sability is it seems more likely she did it than Misaki fucking up right?
I just. I don't know. So much suffering. It's realistic to some extent but goddamn.
Also fuck google for trying to correct Misaki to Mikasa.
There can be miracles when you believe, though hope is frail it's hard to kill
I like how his suffering isn't the dark and edgy wangst kind of thing, but it is more akin to something like waiting for something that you know will never come, but you hope for it anyway. A forlorn hope.
