/a/, do you actually feel any affinity for the protagonists of the series you watch? The male ones, at any rate.
Depends on the series. Some are good. Most are shit. But the ones that are shit are at least useful as a comparison point for the ones that are good.
You mean do I self insert? Yes, wanna fight?
Yes, and the way I view the MC also heavily impacts how I see the show.
No i always pretend to be a cute little girl when watching anime

So which series have a protagonist that you, an /a/non, feel resonates with your views or your personality?
Ever since I got off my anti-depressants I've become rather emotional.
Pretty much as long as the main character does some sort of moral fag deed I'm going to probably like them and feel some affinity. Bonus points if they have some inspiring speech before a fight.
Only if they're good. The one you posted is one of the pathetic excuse of an MC I've come across though.
You shouldn't openly admit to self inserting. Usually that's only reserved for those who have nothing going for them in their real lives.
Depends on who it is, of course.
If they are one of those everyman MCs I don't, they are blanks, just there for a view point into the world.
If they are interesting or likable characters then yes.
I like this answer.
But don't like your oniichan's?
I was abandoned by my father and raised by a mentor until the ripe age of 14, when my father suddenly called me out of the blue to help him with his work. She showered me with women that I didn't want to fuck and forced me to pilot an experimental bio-mech in order to save the world from ambiguous monsters until finally everyone turned into orange juice. So yes, yes I do.
Yes, because I do not watch bad anime.
Well, that's not entirely true, but I don't usually seek out bad stuff.
Really? I'm on antidepressants and I've been having trouble getting emotionally invested in things.
Because I have all this pride to uphold. I guess I should stop fapping to.
>Only if they're good. The one you posted is one of the pathetic excuse of an MC I've come across though.
Oh, I agree completely, that's why I posted him. He's an incompetent, ungrateful cunt, and I can't really see his demeanour ingratiating himself with anyone.
I chuckled a bit.
>He's an incompetent, ungrateful cunt, and I can't really see his demeanour ingratiating himself with anyone.
Have you ever considered that you are living your life incorrectly?
If the protagonist bores me or annoys me, then I won't continue watching.
At least 70% of the show is gonna be shown from the protagonist viewpoint. This means that if the protagonist doesn't click with me, then at least half of the show will be rendered unwatchable for me. Not much point then.
Many times. At each of them I've come to the realization that, while I alone should determine who I am, the opinions of those who I consider my friends or colleagues should have some bearing on my personality and I attempt to change myself for the better based on thier expectations and suggestions. Sage for blogshit.
If you've never considered that, then you'll never excel at anything. The one who needs to re-evaluate their life is you for unironically regurgitating catchphrases from a fantasy LN aimed at Japanese pre-teens.
No matter how bad my life gets, at least I can always rest assured that I will never be this retarded.
I'm not sure what you're getting at here, but I was saying that you should always reflect whether you have room for improvement. I don't see what's so dumb about that.
>My attitude and actions have absolutley no bearing on how my life is shaped. I am only a product of outside influences.
Damn, I'm sorry you have to live that way.
Only the ones with no ambitions who just want to be left alone.
I literally only leave my bed to eat, shower, and use the toilet. It's become too hard to even attempt to self insert anymore.
It really depends. If it's your regular bland, beta harem MC, then no.
Watashi or 8man.
Nope. The only characters I've ever related to were written by Nisioisin and they have dedicated haters for some reason.
I know that feel bro
I can relate to Touma's misfortune.
