Ikki isn't a self-insert; He's what the author imagines to be the perfect boyfriend. The real power fantasy is Stella, and it's actually more wholesome than the Western concept of it. It makes for a fucking weird dynamic.
I mean, it shows in a lot of the series. It's like how imouto isn't really THAT sexy as a character, and the other girls aren't serious harem competition. They don't even stick around.
>>135836476 >there hasn't been good tsundere in anime for ages. because that shits dated and pointless. spending 90% being pointlessly angry at the one you love and only going lovey dovey in the end is such a waste of time.
I guess, but it seems like likely. The thing about Ikki is that he's not really overpowered. His defining factor is that he's basically all-loving Sword Jesus. He's that infinitely understanding, patient guy who isn't a complete pussy. He has a sensitive artist's heart under that six-pack of his, and he's nobility too! Oh, also he's conflicted about it and his family hates him, so a girl can feel that she's dating a 'bad boy' without ACTUALLY having to deal with a bad boy, if you get what I mean.
Also, he's completely monogamous. He's only interested in one girl, and the world supports that - There aren't any other *real* sex-bombs in the series. If I was, say, Asuna in SAO, I'd be constantly worried he was fucking the busty blonde elf.
The thing is, a guy doesn't care about any of this. What he cares about is whether he's knee-deep in writhing skanks and whether his secret sword technique can put a tank through the fucking wall. All the sensitive family touch-feely stuff is a girl's fantasy, not a man's. I mean, the male power fantasy part is 'I can hit this guy so hard, it sent him to the future so I could punish him in the past'.
>>135835773 >there's just something about Stella that makes her best girl What is it, anon? You can't put it into words? Let me help you. Is it her lack of character development? Is it the lack of a proper fight where she was involved? Is it her shitty forced love towards Ikki after just a few hours of meeting him? Is it her mary sue status? Is it how utterly useless she was while Ikki was in prison? Is it how poorly written her character is? Hopefully you'll find out why you think she's best girl, anon.
It's all about what a woman wants. No woman wants her boyfriend to be the 'bitch boyfriend', so he has to be a combatant: Imagine a relationship where the girl has to be the strong one! That would never work.
So, she wants him to be hot, but she doesn't want him to be effeminate. Also, she wants him to be attracted to her, but she doesn't want him to have a rampaging libido. (So Issei from Highschool DxD is an awful love interest, all things considered.) Most girls are monogamous, too, in that when they meet their perfect man they want to keep him all to themselves. So hands off, bitches!
That explains a lot about Ikki, really. He has to be manly but not *too* manly, because no-one wants a rippling muscleman, ick. He has to be sensitive, but not sensitive like a bitch. He has to be kind and all-loving, but he also has to be insanely dangerous when it comes to dealing with bad men, because how else are you going to show off that your man is the manliest man ever, with the hidden heart of a tiger?
Also, he has to be able to pin you down and fuck your brains out, but he musn't do it unless YOU want him to do it. Like, you want him to be repressing his sexual desires for you, because you're so hot...But he must never be gropey or rapey about it, because you're an empowered strong heroine.
Shit, man. I'm writing this all out, and I can feel my brain frying slowly in my skull. Women are fucking nuts.
>>135839238 Left >well dressed >polite and well mannered (tips hat for a lady or gentleman) >has a confident demeanor Right >/fa/ggot >self-centered and clearly harbors delusions of grandeur >looks tense, clearly edgy
>>135839144 Issei is an awful character, period. And now that you mention why ikki is that way it gives some credibility to the author is female thing. Just as mc are pathetic so the author and otakus can self-insert, stella is a shitty character in a similar way.
After what happens in the latest LN volume, she's definitely the best.
-It starts with them in a room recovering. After Shizuku and Alice leave the room, they talk some stuff.
-Then Ikki mentions about the time they were in that cabin in Okutama back in Vol 3 where he said they couldn’t do any dirty stuff since he hadn’t properly met Stella’s parents.
-Ikki asks Stella to forget about it and Stella is all panicked and flustered. “That, t, th, that, ccccould it be-----!?” “Well, it’s like that”
-She then asks what happened to the Ikki that wouldn’t give in no matter what and Ikki says he died.
-After fighting Stella, he realizes he wants to have all of her and then says to her “I want to embrace you right now.” (note: It’s a polite way of saying he wants to have sex with her)
-Ikki asks if it’s okay and then Stella says “Stupid Ikki… how long do you think I’ve been waiting for those words? That’s why, right now… I’m very happy...” “Stella…” “Ah, but wait!” “Stella?” “Ikki, even though you said that, have you properly prepared ‘that’?” “’That’..?” “I have waited for Ikki to say that, you know? But we’re still students and we haven’t properly greeted each other’s parents… I plan to fight Ikki next year too, so….it would be troubling if I get pregnant, right?” “…Ah”
-Ikki says sorry for not being thoughtful then he’s about to leave to buy it. Stella stops him and tells him to wait. “…Use this” “-------!!“ “S, Stella, could it be you’ve been prepared?”
-Stella says it’s not like that; it’s just a princess’ etiquette. “C, could it be you think I’m a disgraceful girl?” “I don’t think of you like that. Thank you, I’ll be careful next time” “You should be. ….it’s because it was so embarrassing to go buy it”
>>135841355 Cont'd -Ikki then unwraps one of the condoms’ plastic cover. “…We’re really, right now… going to do it, right?” “…Y, Yeah…”
-They’re embarrassed and Ikki thinks at a time like this the guy needs to pull himself together. “Stella!” “Y, yes!” “I…I may be inexperienced, please be kind to me” “Ah, same here, please be kind to me”
-They’re on bed with Stella, who is wearing a white one-piece clothing, embarrassed and Ikki is about to reach for her clothes’ top button. “W, wait… H, hey… I’m not wearing a bra right now…. So, it’s embarrassing so sudden…. From below, please….” “S, sorry…”
-Ikki starts unbuttoning from below one by one, revealing Stella’s white thigh and lower part of her breasts, which Ikki then touches from behind. Stella makes noises like “Hyu” and “~~~~,ah….”, and the last button is undone but her clothes are still on with part of her breasts visible.
-Ikki then remembers a similar situation back in Vol 6 where Stella said he could bite her breasts. Stella says wait but Ikki doesn’t want to wait and is about to peel of her clothes but then stops after Stella says “…it’s embarrassing that, my chest, feels like it’s breaking”, with some tears in her eyes.
-Stella feels scared, and so Ikki wants to be gentle with her. He doesn’t want her to have scary memory on the day that she has been waiting for.
-Ikki then kisses her in a gentle way that they always did to help her calm. But later the kiss becomes deeper with Ikki inserting his tongue into Stella’s mouth and she then moves her tongue as well. There is some saliva spilling from their mouths and Ikki is touching her thigh while this happens.
>>135841479 -Not just fear, Stella feels very aroused which can be seen in her eyes. Her white body becomes redder with sweat and is giving off sweet fragrance. This is proof that her body and heart are prepared. “Are you okay now?” “….yeah…” “If you’re scared, tell me. Until Stella’s feelings are calmed down, I’ll do this many times” “….I’m okay, now”
-Ikki then gently kisses Stella three times and then put his hands on her shoulder, removing her clothing. Under the moonlight, her faintly sakura-colored flushed naked body is revealed. Lovely neck, girly-like slender arm, and breasts with pink nipples on the middle of her body. “So beautiful….”
-Using his finger Ikki took the saliva from his mouth and smeared it on Stella’s right nipple. Her right breast becomes wet and she makes a lovely noise. “Aa…n”
-After hearing Stella making such a lovely noise and seeing the sight in front of him, Ikki doesn’t think he can hold back anymore. He thinks if it’s okay to go further now, which he doesn’t know since he doesn’t have any experience. He wonders if he will hurt her if he goes now.
-Stella then puts her arms around Ikki’s neck, smiling, and tells him that he doesn’t need to hold back anymore. “Thank you…..for being fully kind to me. So, I’m really okay now. The things Ikki wants do to me, do them, all of them….” "---"
>>135841578 -Those words became a trigger. He’s no longer hesitating. He’s no turning back. Under the moonlight, two shadows melt together, overlapping with heat. Until where is his, and until where is hers? As that was not much clear anymore, they strongly and deeply embrace each other. Their voices no longer carry any meaning, so their lips are desperately seeking the beloved partner. In the midst of it, Ikki Kurogane... vowed to himself. I won't let this girl be unhappy. He is determined not to let her regret that she chose the man named Ikki Kurogane. He strongly vowed to his own soul.
>>135841355 >-Ikki says sorry for not being thoughtful then he’s about to leave to buy it. Stella stops him and tells him to wait. >“…Use this” >“-------!!“ >“S, Stella, could it be you’ve been prepared?” > >-Stella says it’s not like that; it’s just a princess’ etiquette. >“C, could it be you think I’m a disgraceful girl?” >“I don’t think of you like that.

>>135837071 Since she's not a tsundere but is fanservicedere. I mean her role in the series is just to glorify the MC and to show ass and tiddies which is not a bad move if you're going to ask jewlords out there since /a/ and japan are retards that watch a show not based on the quality of the show but on how frequent ass and tiddies flash on the screen while contradicting to theirselves that they have good taste.
>>135859702 There are a few reasons to watch the show, but Stella isn't one of them. The battles, specifically MC vs Shark Teeth dude and Imouto vs Lightning Chick are the main reasons.The animation when the studio decides to spend budget for those battles and a couple of others like the bullet time and the last battle are something to see as well.
