I was under the impression that we were posting characters with well thought out plans, foresight, and decision-making. The writing in NGNL was far too contrived to call anything or anyone in the show remotely "smart" or "tactical."

If we're picking from that author wouldn't Akagi be the smartest character?
>>
>>135863693
none of those things are presented as actual obstacles in the story

he just as easily could have had no penis and had panic attacks whenever he saw chocolate muffins, none of it matters if it has no bearing on the story

the shit involving his sister was used as an excuse to make him seem intelligent to the mouth-breathing retards who actually enjoyed NGNL

the problem with smart characters in literature and specially in anime is that the authors must do a proper job of convincing us that their protagonists (or supporting chars) are bright beyond reasonable doubt.

And they usually fail miserably. It's one thing to write a script saying that random guy (a) has a 900 IQ, nonetheless convincing the readers of the fact is the hard part.

any honest author when writing of such cases would have to say something along the lines; "he conquered the world. And I haven't got the slightest idea of how".
