How do you self insert as the MC in anime? I sometimes hear arguments that the MC being a self insert, how the hell do you even pull that off? You imagine your body or face as him or what?
>>

You need to believe in the heart of the cards.
>>
>>100696888
Imagine yourself being put in the same situation and triumphing over all obstacles, saving the day, getting the girl, etc.
>>
I would recommend watching SAO to get a great example of a self insert MC...
But I wouldn't tell my greatest enemies to watch SAO...no one should ever have to endure that...
>>
>>100696888
imagine yourself as MC
>>
>>100697134
I hear that example all the time, more recently Mirai Nikki too. I want to see for myself.
>>
>>100697239
Well...no one's stopping you.
You've been warned though....
>>
It's when the anime invites to speculate how you would react to the events if you were the MC. It's also when you stick your penis in your butt.
>>
>>100696888
Honestly to me it's just about having things in common with the MC. Knowing that the MC goes through some or many of the things you have in life, or knowing that the MC thinks the same way you do makes you feel like you two are much alike.
>>
Gooddamn I was disappointed by this thread's pic unrelated.
Can we make it a Hitei-hime thread now?
>>
>>100697623
Why would you want that, she's a slut.
>>
>>100697572
That's just general relatability. Relatable characters are common and encouraged.
Self Insert is a power fantasy for people who don't know what good writing or characterization is.
>>
>>100697623
Whatever you want, I just went with it because she looks puzzled.
>>
>>100696888
someone post that doujin where the guy uses a demon to turn people into skin and wear them and gain their abilities
>>
If you self-insert, in anything, this board would be better off without you. Just saying.
>>
>>100697818
Heh.
>>
>>100697818
Deep stalker?

I do the other way really. I don't put myself onto the MC, I put the MC into me. Like what they think I try to think that way, what they want I try to want, what they do not give a fuck I try not to give a fuck, it's more fun this way. Also less tears when my favorite girl isn't picked since naturally if the MC liked the other girl better, I did too.
>>
>>100696888
I imagine I am the MC doing what they are doing. The best part is when I am not watching the show, making up little stories of living in that world.
>>
Why the fuck did she win the main character's D
>>
You have to find a MC that shares your beliefs and some of your personality traits. I rarely find a MC that I can self insert on to as they are almost all beta pussies.
>>
>>100697756

Oh, well I guess I'm unintelligent then not to figure that out myself. If self inserting is literally imagining that you are the MC, then I don't understand it either.
>>
>>100697134
Fuck you, that's an ass example.
The best anime to self-insert as the MC is Golgo 13.
>>
Self insert is where the author inserts himself into the story. When you have a beta japanese otaku who all the girls love that is obviously the author imagining how he wants his life to be. It is bad because these faggots are all really boring and basing a character off some beta jap is shit.
>>
>>100698280
I can see what you're saying, but I disagree.
See, in SAO, the MC is just some bum any of us would be, but for dick all reason he's jesus Kirito and gets all da pussy and stupid stupid stupid...

Golgo, is...well an assassin. He's not even "Cool". He's aloof, serious, and never shows any signs of much other than getting the job done. He's the kind of person that none of here could ever hope to be, even if he is god-tier, and get's bitches. He's NOT the good guy. Golgo 13 doesn't have a good or bad guy. It's shades of grey.

SAO...Black and white all over. THIS GUY IS BAD HATE HIM HE WANTS TO RAPE ASUNA-CHAN!!!
DON'T WORRY KIRITO-KUN WILL SAVE HER FROM DA BAD GUISE!!!!


yea...

>>100698280
Truly, an amazing penis.

Boku no Pico is a fucking masterpiece. It flawlessly puts you, OP, as the MC and its as if you never left your shitty chair.
>>
>>100698532
The point is that Golgo does not have a personality. He's literally an emotionless vessel for anyone to self-insert as.
On a semi-related note, that's also why Keanu Reeves keeps getting acting roles.
>>
>>100698532
well put anon
>>
>>100698617
Hmmmmm...
Well, I don't believe you're wrong there. Quite the contrary actually.
I just don't see it like that because I couldn't see really anyone self inserting as Golgo 13.
I like him, he's just not self-insert material to me...
I mean come on....you've seen the world he's in. It's so glum and depressing.

Find a cute MC, then imagine yourself inserting into his tender boypussy.
>>
>>100698717
1: It's because he's a stone cold killer that never loses and fucks women constantly.
2: Go back to Gaia and stop typing like a fucking retard.
>>
>>100698785
And here I thought we were getting along...
Oh well...
>>
>>100698967
No, perhaps I don't...but...
1: What are you going to do about it?
2: Get over it and move on.
>>
>>100696888
for me, i've never self insert as the MC, instead as an alter ego of myself and interacting with all the characters include the MC.
>>
>>100699252
I hope you keep those fantasies to yourself.
>not inserting yourself as a NEET in front of a computer screen watching the MC's show
