>Man, Shinji is such a wuss! If I were in his place, I'd be way cooler!
I cant stand it when people say this.
If you were 14 and had to pilot a huge mech against etheric beings, everyone would react in exactly the same way.Minus the Dad issues.
Implying Shinji isn't the toughest motherfucker out there.
>Man, Yukiteru is such a wuss! If I were in his place, I'd be way cooler!
He would be more justified if the series had showed more about his childhood and how he was conflicted by the rumors about his father killing Yui
But it's true.
Shinji is just how a depressed turbo nerd like Anno imagines a 14yo.
pretty sure theres 14 year old soldiers out there right now raping people, killing them and eating their hearts.
shinji needs to check his privilege
He actually manned up while fighting the angels
It's at the beginning the series he's at his wussiest
He actually manned up while fighting the owners
It's at the beginning the series he's at his wussiest
And look at what it got him.
I found him the most sympathetic in the manga because he's fairly violent compared to his anime self, when he tried to punch Gendo after Toji died, and I think the poor kid even had a dream about stabbing his father.
So Manga Shinji spends time being kinda mad while Anime Shinji spends time being depressed.
Those child soldiers are whipped, abused and beaten and raised in an environment of war from a very young age. By the time they reach 14, they're certifiably psychotic and have no understanding of what we call modern civilization.
Naruto I'm on my way
Naruto I'll be ok
Sasuke is really cool
Sakura the beautiful
He has ups and downs throughout the series. Remember when he had to face Shamshel? He manned up and charged into battle, yelling a fierce(for Shinji) battle cry in spite of orders to run away.
What did that get him? The skin on his hands burned off, the feeling of being impaled by white-hot tentacles and once he's safely out of the robot he's bitched out by his supportive guardian for not running away from danger.
Or in your pic, shortly after getting a compliment from his father, he's on top of the world. What does he do? Charge into battle and get eaten by the angel and spends the next few days inside another dimension that also includes riding the train to hell.
>My favourite Gundam is still the original one though. You know - Gundam Wing.
>I wish anime wasn't full of underage girls.
>Gurren Lagann is the best mecha anime I've ever seen, trust me I've seen a total of 20 anime
Or on /a/ and /m/
>Gurren Lagann is complete shit. Getter Robo is better in every aspect because it inspired it.
Yuki was a scheming faggot throughout, he used everyone to keep himself out of harms way. What a cunt.
>Getter Robo is better in every aspect
That much is true though.
Irregular reminder that Yukitero killed an armed serial killer, kissed Yuno and grabbed her ass, ran through a minefield, stabbed ninth and saved hundreds of classmates, got himself invited into Yuno's house on their first date, saved Yuno from getting raped, killed sixth, saved Yuno from getting electrocuted, Saved Yuno from getting injected with poison, pulled down a girl's skirt in front of the whole class then made her a love interest/friend, organized his friends to fend off an attack of killer dogs, acted as a diversion to save them again, manipulated his girlfriend into doing as she was told, shot a cop, shot 4th and saved Yuno again, escaped his bindings and pimpslapped Yuno, styled all over 11th multiple times especially in the manga, and then started popping orphans and more cops and ramming people off overpasses.
Beta as fuck.
Except it's not.
>I only watch mecha anime just for the girls.
>they're certifiably psychotic and have no understanding of what we call modern civilization.
Sounds pretty fucking familiar, anon.
>this male MC is totally a likable character, someone I can relate to! He also has apoint, and doesn't take up screentime that would be used on what people watch the series for: the girls!
I can buy a drink from my local drug store without raping the girl behind the counter.
why didn't Shinji simply reverse the third impact? Then there would be people he could interact with, his greatest fear
No, it really is. I liked TTGL but it's nowhere near as badass as Getter Robo.
>trying too hard
I can visit the hospital without jacking off on someone, so what is your point?
Getter was try hard babby shit.
Also, Getter's robot designs are terrible.
>I wish I was as cool as Kirito. He gets all the girls and can beat anyone in a fight!
Quoted from a guy I know who also enjoys shows like Highschool of the Dead. He claims Kirito is legitimately "cool n badazz" and says that Kirito x Asuna is his favorite ship of all time.
You can? Fuck. I'm still working on that.
I was kind of talking about Shinji, but I'm glad for you.
High School of the Dead's just goofy fun though. Nobody actually takes it seriously...right?
You'd be surprised. There are probably people out there who legitimately think HOTD does a good job at depicting the horrors of a real zombie apocalypse and what young teenagers must reduce to in order to survive.
I wish I could go outside and talk to people without looking like a fucking fool...
I thought he was talking about how /a/nons are despicable shut-ins who masturbate to loli porn, laugh at tragedies and sit around insulting each other over 2D representations of females we have an infatuation over with the express idea that we are not a part of society and yet somehow better than it.
>"He's so beta!"
>"Why is he so faggot?"
>"Fuck he's so stupid, why can't he do that instead?"
I always see this on /a/ everyday.
I'm sure, just like there's people who think that Shingeki no Kyojin wasn't awkwardly paced and that the characters act naturally.
There are. My casual as fuck brother called the characters and the art "hyper-realistic."
I actually see more love for Shinji instead of hate, except on some occasions.
Well, on /a/ at least.
Wow...that was legitimately depressing to read.
B-but that's not even fucking close to correct! Even from an artistic stand point, that's not even close!
Loli thread cheer you up?
It gets worse.
He enjoys Nisekoi. Not limited to the girls.
I find the manga's art to be fairly hideous, actually. Especially when it comes to battle scenes. I had no idea what the fuck was going on when trying to read Eren fight the Armored Titan.
But I would be way cooler.
I wonder, when someone hates a character, what does he have in his mind. Does he compare himself to that character or something like that.
How can the doll be winning that poll?
It´s a fact that the sun shines brighter than the moon
After all, the moon light is a fake one
There's a very generous list of things that are okay.
That is not on this list.
>this anime is too deep for you
>its not fan service , its criticism
Yeah, the art for the manga is pretty horrible at times. But at least the animation's fun to watch.
From a technical standpoint it's awful, but it does a great job of capturing an atmosphere.
>>its not fan service , its criticism
Please tell me there's no possible fucking universe where people have said this. I'm on my knees here.
The animation's fun to watch but the pacing for the anime is absolute dogshit
It's like Mirai Nikki.
Yeah, it's a fucking train wreck, but at least the train's full of fireworks.
I would've at least fucked the girls.
It's more like there's an occasional firework when it's not boring the shit out of you with ridiculous drawn-out explanations and general laziness.
I'm not saying I'd be more capable, but I sure as fuck wouldn't be such a fucking beta about it.
Also, Shinji is a fucking cunt.
Haven't seen either of them, but I think I've seen some people around say that about Kill la Kill and Bakemonogatari.
I always doubt someone who post or said something like this.
I wouldn't say I'd be cooler, but I'd definitely find a better coping mechanism than him. Of course, watching a mech anime about a kid who does nothing but fight aliens and get horribly rejected by every female he macks on wouldn't be nearly as interesting as watching Shinji's life get ruined.
>Shirou is such a horrible MC! Why doesn't he just let Saber fight? He is just stupid and sexist!
>The show has a bigger message than "the power of friendship!" Its about helping the people you care about, no matter what! You just don't get it!
These kids are younger than Shinji yet they are not a pussy like him.
>Why would I read the F/SN VN? I already know it'll be shit since the anime also sucked
>"I was giving monogatari a chance but it was just talk and talk. Theres was like no action!"
The show focuses on dialogues and characterizations. If you watch it for what it is then you'll see why people like it. Also has some nice fanservice
"Ya but I want some action and fighting! Like Kill la Kill!"
ITT: Things nobody says
>watching Haremshit in the first place
>I haven't met people this dumb so they don't exist.
Oh, how I wish I could be you.
I'm related to people who say things like this, yeah. My anecdotal evidence beats yours.
In cases like Shinji, there's always that part of your mind that wants to imprint themselves on a character, almost insert themselves into their shoes. The problem with Shinji is that he's actually the result of what would happen if you stuck a 14 year old kid with issues into the seat of a giant robot, and every time the robot takes a hit he literally feels it.
Wasn't Touji supposed to be a shot a people saying shit like that until it actually happens in their face
no bro if I was an emotionally damaged young teen i'd be way cooler + slicker than this emotionally damaged young teen
I know, i used to be optimist too but now i don´t ever dare to understimate human idiocy.
Except Touji was dead because of the plot, not because of his own action.
Depressing? It made my night. If living like this is wrong then I don't want to be right.
No I meant when he first met shinji. He decked him for getting his sister hurt when it was his first battle, but shinji didn't really defend himself so Touji kinda hated him until Shinji put them in the plug with him and they saw firsthand how that shit went down
People talk shit at him and exaggerate his flaws because he's extremely unlikable as a character.
If people only watch the anime, then it's understandable.
>Wasn't Touji supposed to be a shot a people saying shit like that until it actually happens in their face
I also took it as that,but the I remembered he and Kensuke got the chance to experience the whole thing right with Shinji in the earlier episodes,so I guess they already got an idea? Touji still got wrecked in the end,though.
