How come anime don't have MCs like Cobra, Chirico or Kenshiro any more? Now we get just run of the mill MC.
>>
Anime is targeted at teens, not adults.
>>
>>100970154
Because modern boys are faggots thus they can't identify themselves to such awesome characters.
>>
>>100970154
what`s the difference? an adult faggot, a school kid faggot? is the same shit
>>
>>100970154
>any more?
It was never a big trope. It was a thing in the 80s when roid chimps like Arndold, Sly, Van Dame, etc. were making action flicks.

Asians to begin almost never get that huge.
So naturally they went back to what their people actually look like.

>Anime is targeted at teens
Anime for teens is targeted at teens. All anime is targeted at the Japanese.
>>
>>100970154
Because people realized that watching anime with such MC is compensation for something.

Real man watch, for example, School Days and some shitty sister LN adaptation.

This. Japanese males are pussies, almost without exception. The ones that aren't leave the country or get involved with Yakuza.

Chirico has a huge legacy of stoic mecha pilots.
Heero Yui, Sagara Sousuke, Setsuna among the more popular ones, they are all inspired by him.
Kenshiro, I cannot even begin to list them all here.(And he was a clone of Bruce Lee to being with.)
Cobra not as much as the other two (even though he still one of the better male leads in Anine), but he was a direct inspiration for the Dante of DMC3.

So yeah, their legacy still lives in other characters to this day.

>Gainax’s latest TV show, the unwieldy-named Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division C3, focuses on the adventures of a survival game club at a prestigious girl’s boarding school. Ingeniously tapping into both the popular “little girls doing things” genre and the wide-scale marketability of the expensive toy guns industry, Stella Women’s Academy replaces the toy robots of yesteryear with toy guns — pretty much the same thing, really, except instead of being marketed to children a la Gundam, they’re marketing to manchildren a la every other anime of the last decade.

Wow. Someone is buttflustered over Gainaxs new line up.

We need more MCs that are intelligent and use their brain.

Araragi isnt the typical protagonist though, hes gotta pair and does for the most part whatever he likes. Most MCs these days are passive aggressive blobs with no substance that exist only to slowly push the plot along.

Not true. The callback to the whole to Ode to Joy sequence of the series was nice. And Shinji and Fuyutsuki actually had a conversation, especially since Fuyutsuki seemed to be the only adult with a straight head on his shoulders, and that was someone Shinji needed to have had a conversation with.

But that was it.
