Tell me /a/, what the fuck happened? Where did all go so wrong?
Fuck you, K1 is cool.
says the only person who thinks so.
The degenerate youth no longer understands nor values masculine virtues. Hence MCs have to be puddipuddi to relate.
I-Is Redline really that old compared to the other side?
you forgot guts OP! what the hell?
are you blind
Came out in 2009, took 7 years to create it.
Back in the day samurais had to be pleased by anime.
Now that they all commited sudoku, anime industry targeted the beta otakus.
This really. Most modern girls in Japan see masculine men as intimidating. Pretty, shy boys are the cool ones.
So basically you're saying that you prefer the edgy MCs rather than the ones with clear values and are more realistic? Guts is on there so it's automatic edge you edgy teenage faggot.
Masculinity doesn't sell anime. It sells trucks, beer, and guns.
>implying K1 and Eren isn't badass and manly
>Implying Tenchi and Shinji are manly
Seven years indeed.
>no makato on the left
You're a fucking faggot OP
>mc's then:bunch of adult characters
>mc's now:bunch of teenager characters
bait thread, move along
I was thinking about putting him in there but decided not to because he isn't worth it.
It's a damn shame we don't see main characters like Guts or Ichise any more...
I don't know about that. It seems to work pretty well in almost every fighting anime ever
>MC whose sole motivation for racing was imitating a manwhore driving a big shiny car while bedding sluts
Shit taste confirmed.
Also I needn't point it out but
Looks like faggoty OP doesn't know about motherfucking eightman
Thanks for further proving my point, /a/non.
all day erryday
I've seen that anime but if I put 8man under "Then", it would contradict the contrasting chart I made.
What's so great about this trash? I watched the first few eps when this was still airing and he was the usual faggot mc.
He started beating on one of the traitors with his arm nub working off of pure anger and determination to kill the people who killed his mother and comrades.
How is that not badass?
>Higurashi was now and Gurren Lagann was then
Nigga pls. At lest do research when you try to pretend like you watched any of this shit.
All he did was show up, get his arms cut off then replaced with mechanical ones, join a gang, rot.
I personally wouldn't call fighting anime's the meat and potatoes of the anime industry once it's all said and done. But I've been wrong before.
>I watched the first few eps
There is your problem faggot, he is the anti-harem protaganist where he tells all the girls to fuck off
This relative of mine of Afro-American descent knows what's up.
/pol/ please go and stay go
How is that /pol/ related?
What's Tenma doing on the left side? I mean whoever made this pic probably added him because the picture makes him look like some kind of badass with a gun. But he is a kind person and not really violent. I don't remember but did he actually kill anybody?
>thinking this only apply to japan
Just look in any and every first world country
It's almost as if you have never been to America.
Regardless everything else with SNK i actually liked Eren.
1 Didn't he hit some age when he was done with traning? I mean he was older than typical higschool protag.
2 And he was cool, badass, selfish, reckless, stupid. And this knife-crazy kid scene was absolutely great(except for Mikasa suddenly getting unholu power to crush knife grip and floor)
These things make A CHARACTER.
He got boring after some time in, but he's still quite good for an MC. Normally mc of the most today's shows is revolting. Eren was great compared to others.
Go on, come at me.
Heart is good
and a cute
By the numbers garbage that will be completely forgotten in a year is moot point.
Eren is shit compared to any MC from any age. We see main characters like him all the fucking time. I'm sick of it and it needs to stop.
You ain't serious, are you?
Picrelated is what you normally see.
You gotta appreciate Eren at least for how good he is compared to this kid.
>The place where guys are bowing down to feminists and everyone has to be a special snowflake
Just look at the fashion there and tell me this shit is manly.
Most of Russkies still know what's what.
Tenma was a boring MC, just saying.
>1 Didn't he hit some age when he was done with traning? I mean he was older than typical higschool protag.
Eren is basically like a chihuahua : he barks a lot, tries to bite everything he doesn't like (mostly titans) but never succeed.
At least he's not a beta faggot nor a gary stue, and with the recent events in the manga he has begun to calm down.
What does /a/ actually want to see in a serious male character?
This thread is fucking cancer, being an angry faggot doesn't make him any better than your usual beta faggot.
Nice cherrypicking, faggot
Why isn't Shinji on the "Then" list?
But not being beta does. Not saying he is especially good, though.
it was the jews trying to get white men to reproduce less. now shows are filled with pussies and muh waifu
So what do you think about male protagonists this season, /a/?
>Hozuki no Reitetsu
>Gin no Saji
>Onee-chan ga Kita
>K-1 in "now"
>Kamina in "then"
Nah, Moscow and St. Petersburg are full of queers.
Eren gets about as much done as angry faggots like OP do IRL.
Nothing. Therefore Eren is a compelling portrayal of angry faggots like OP.
I thought he was a faggot but he stood up to that bitch and told her that her cooking was terrible, something the average MC these days wouldn't have done.
I have a little hope but not much.
When it becomes apparent how useless he is and how every character has to save him or bail him out every time.
Not to mention he isn't even the main character.
Time to pick up the hammer and sickle, and clean the streets of those filthy aid infestants.
>Nobunga the Fool
Why's Redline "then" when it was released at about the same time as SAO?
It was obvious the Japanese males were gonna devolve into sniveling metrosexuals after being our (Murrica's) bitches for so long. We tamed them a little too much me thinks.
>At least he's not a beta faggot nor a gary stue,
That actually makes him decent, doesn't it?
1 A conflict.
Something persomal like muh revenge/muh girlfriend is overused. Why not going all
>anything for money
They never use it for MC. And then he gets problems with real bad guys.
2 Personal traits.
I like Eren's actually.
Hei is also great, but too good, much like Gary Stu
Let him be badass and have head hot, FUCKING TYLER DURDEN for anime MC.
3 Some personal crysis, something about his character.
But not like Shinji, please don't.
>our social, economic and political systems have failed under ever conceivable metric in the face of free-market and democratic superiority
>but look how manly we are! If you hate communism/fascism you must be tiny effeminate baby girl
You forgot Superman Dumbledore, he's a great MC. There's also Buddy Complex with a good one, Noragami, Nobunaga the Fool is also good, though a fucking retard(it does go with his nickname though). Sekai Seifuku is ok, he's not a faggot at all, despite his appearance.
The average Japanese working male is more manly and conservative than your average American white working male.
what anime is these
So what are this character's flaws exactly? He's starting the sound very stu.
>free-market and democratic superiority
Truly, every time.
>Talking shit about Keiichi
Wow, not cool
Anal pained merriclap mad that they were Britain original bitches and needed someone weaker than them to bully. Kinda like your life huh?
Oh wow, this delusion. Britfag please.
He's an asshole who was selling drugs/killing people
He can fuck up stuff due to overconfidence/impatience/for fun
I liked Eren up until the point he was kidnapped by Bert & Ernie. That speech he made about how he's going to make them suffer and kill them was the exact moment when his impotent rage went from amusing to annoying.
What utter tosh
What's wrong with Keiichi?
That sounds more like a villain than an anti-hero though.
Do you know what makes great story to me? It's like noir. It makes you simpathyse with both protagonist and antagonists.
It's not good guy vs bsd guy, they both are guys with their own reasons who are nice people but have to do what hey do... and hope you get where I'm going.
Golo 13 was a protag that was killing people for money. "Leon", "La Professional" and so on.
And everyone loved them and cried when profesion got shot.
The great story is when you feel gad for antagonist as well.
Guts is still around
Also Ichi the killer.
It's a story about one fucked up psychotic maniac who was crying and masturbating while dismembering bodies.
But it was making the reader like him.
B-B-But we beat your ass out of Murrica you britbong.
Why don't you just stay in your Mum's council flat while she fucks men outside the chippie for a few quid.
So I made this. Each show corresponds to a MC from something coming out in the same year as the chart in the OP. I picked anime years since manga wouldn't be fair and I assume that's what OP was talking about.
Except for that one on the bottom right. I didn't know what show that was so I just picked Kotetsu because he is great.
There are faggots and non-faggots every year
>that guy from Ookami-san
Fuck you, that guy was actually pretty decent.
go back to mfa faget
Kotetsu was great and his VA was amazing. We need more MCs like him
>tfw no more S2, only movies from now on
How is that manly? Explain yourself you giant faggot.
I'm pretty sure that one on the top left in the Then section are actual faggots. That may not be fair
> wears his own clothes
> works out and inspires others to do the same (look up modern couture)
>is a trendsetter
>making big stacks from a job he likes doing
>bangs hot bitches erryday
>doesn't give a fuck
>isn't afraid of anything
sounds pretty manly to me
Why are there three of Shinji?
mfw higurashi aired before redline.... you idiot
Still looks like a faggot
Higurashi came out before Redline and Gurren Lagann.
Why do MCs now all have identical hairstyles?
Is it that hard to make a unique looking male character?
top kek OP, 10/10
10/10 I'm actually mad. How dare you put K1 on the right, you piece of shit.
Anime became shit
There are only a few hairstyles that maximize self-insertion potential.
This isn't even a good bait. Some of the MCs in Now are older than the MCs in Then.
>guts not realistic
>no clear values
0/10 not even baited
But all of the anime on that picture look so cool
so, he's gay?
inb4 loving the trap doesn't count as being gay
We live in dark times.
The lack of Boss in that is killing me.
Higurashi, Attack on Titan, and Sword Art Online predate Redline
Higurashi predates Gurren Lagann
