Why does Japan think "eats snacks" is a valid character type? Do people really get invested in characters who don't actually have personality traits but just have a prop that they hold and eat whenever they're on screen? Even Scooby Doo has more traits than eats snacks and he's a fucking faggot dog.

Doesn't Pepel eat snacks as a replacement for smoking?
>Something something deep something something character development, something he leaves his petty criminal past behind and becomes a super villain, eating snacks after becoming one of Kate's minions and kneeling to her.

There's room for analysis in his choices compared to a Yasu, whom rebels. Poorly.

Look he's probably had the most screen time of any of the eps this time round, and only as a secondary character in Yasu's backstory. Give it a bit before writing off the slow side character development entirely.

I wasn't particularly invested in Kyouko, but she did have more personality traits than gluttony.

Fuck you, Gaius is my nigga

Probably. His name is "Ash" in Russian.

As for the glutton/fatso character. It's an old as animation/comics problem. Think of a fat character from anything that had a bunch of kids in it. The fat character defining trait was that he's fat: either always eating or always hungry and constantly thinking of food.

It's a fucking mystery why they put them in. Who does this appeal to? Certainly not fat people as they are portrayed so one sidedly and not anyone else because everyone else hates fat people.

I think it could also be due to the old rule "don't have a figure doing nothing with their hands, always have some kind of gesture."
That may hold true for animation as it does art, and "snacks" is a pretty common denominator action that's obvious; and then they probably just built a shitty archetype around it.

You know: draw a fat kid, now he's eating snacks, guess we've got a character now.
Or, even worse: draw a skinny teen girl, now she's eating SO much snacks, guess we've got a ZANY character now.

All of the useless characters that have snacks as a base of their character archetype, rather than a way to tell the narrative visually, aught to be carried off by a Snackadatyl.

Gaius doesn't eat "snacks" - he eats candy. In Japan, its considered weird for males above a certain age to even be able to tolerate sweet food. That's the same to some extent in the West, but even more so there. His sugarphilia is meant to emphasize a childish innocence that contrasts with his profession as a thief.

But anyway, are you seriously telling me you think he has no other characteristics? Have you even played the game?

Kyoko as well - I don't even know how you got that idea. She's always snacking because her experience of poverty made her more conscious of having food on hand than most people. But even then, it amounts to nothing more than a minor foible that barely enters into her characterization.

I know you're trolling, but the stupidity of your post actually got me to respond. So I guess that makes you a successful troll. 2/10

Not that I read Naruto...but I think the one in the upper left has some kind of unique power to convert calories into mana or something like that, so its part of his ability.

literally every line gaius gets in FE:A, from combat shouts to dialogue scenes is "MAN I LOVE CANDY"

Obviously top left from Naruto is in fact a shitty character whose only defining characteristic is being fat, but Pepel has received more development than that in pretty much the last episode alone. As for Kyouko, her always eating snacks and being conscious about food was because she was poor, and it was hardly a defining characteristic, it was more of a single quirk that she had.

They really are doing their best to make living there as miserable as possible.

According to japan, yes. Bonus points if this character is unemotional and "eating snacks" is literally their only trait. Japs think, for some reason, that it makes them cute.

I forget, was Number 2 known for being fat, or being smart?
