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?

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.

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!

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.

Could you self-insert into someone ten feet tall?
>>
>watch anime
>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.

>>100364831
I self-insert into super robots all the time.
>>
>>100364947
What kind of shitty super robots are only ten feet tall?
>>
>>100364983
They aren't of course, just saying height isn't a factor in self-insertion.

>>100364704
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.
