Am I the only one tired of tiny, scrawny MCs?
Pic somewhat related, but this is usually the case for pretty much every medium, and I can't help but notice some of the more popular stories sport protagonists that are on the taller, buffer end of the spectrum.
i feel like SnK would improve a lot if some of the cast was a bit older, giving them some contrast.
and if eren wasn't such a fucking manlet
MCs are created for japanese (short people) school kids (not fully-grown people) to self-insert. What else would you expect?
Any gaijin could big-daddy-carry her.
Everything has an exception. "But Hollsing so poplar very goodings numbers XD" is a thing you hear people say but in general the nippons only care about cute things, everything else is unusual.
>wanting to self insert is a manlet
fukken japs m8 i swer on me mum
There are always some outliers. Berserk is not the only example of course, but there is only a little of such anime in relation to all of the anime that there is.
Yes, and their general inability to assign realistic height and weight to characters. I know they are all tiny people living in tiny halfling land. But if even in series where the cast is supposed to be Western, 18+, with Xbox hueg muscles, they come up with laughable numbers like 150cm tall and 48kg! And that adult woman over there with 3 kids: 130cm, 35kg! WHAT A FATTY!
I want to go to Japan or Korea one day just so I can feel like a giant for a week or so.
I see your pokedex is in working order.
You have to learn to say:
"I'm the biggest, that means I'm in charge!"
I don't care about that. As long as their impact is big
Jean is pretty skinny
Maybe I'm jumping the gun here but historical japanese combat has been based on speed, agility and technique perhaps because of their build. See the difference between samurai and knights.
Would like to have a bit older chars, even 18 is perfectly fine, bonus points for couple years above. At least the weight is accurate for trained people with a fair amount of muscle.
berserk is 23 year old, it's from an era where men were men and not spineless faggots
My cousin went to Japan on vacation once, he's really tall even here in 'murrica, around 6'8" or so. Apparently people in Japan were stopping to take pictures of him as he walked by.
>an era where men were men and not spineless faggots
still gets NTR'd
Stop watching anime with tiny emo faggot scrawny skinny little shits.
Thats what you get when you only have war with yourself
Could you self-insert into someone ten feet tall?
>a thousand bland generic beta MCs
>start reading a web fiction
>MC described as "the most average guy possible. Nothing stood out about him at all."
>read a book
>MC is a plain beta, suddenly finds out he has magic, then all the bitches want to choke on his dick and he's super popular
God damn it I'm getting sick of this shit.
I self-insert into super robots all the time.
What kind of shitty super robots are only ten feet tall?
They aren't of course, just saying height isn't a factor in self-insertion.
Well, it's power armor, but still pretty Super
>tfw cute boy gets in your cockpit
Go read Berserk, Gut's is a genetic anti-christ,
go watch jojo or that one anime about samurai with giant necks
Is there anyone on /a/ who has not read Berserk yet?
Are you saying people didn't self insert into Eren's titan?
Guts is 6'2
I bet there is a lot of people who sill needs to finish reading it.
Im going to finish it after I catch up to Jojo's
Damn. I'm not quite that tall, but I'm well above average height even for 'murica. I have this sudden urge to go to Japan.
