Is this the first time in anime that the antagonist stole the Main Character spot and became the protagonist?

Might not be the first, but I sure came in my pants for the 10th time.

Rusty had everything going for him in SEED.

Of course not. Nothing in KlK is even slightly original.

She hasn't been the antagonist for a while now, more of a rival character. Plus, she's not really the protagonist until the point-of-view primarily follows her. Right now she and Ryuuko are both kind of sharing the spotlight 50/50.

A better comparison might be the protagonist switch in Diebuster - rivals/friends in the overarching plot, but the POV change halfway through is drastic.

>more of a rival character
Isn't the definition of an antagonist to be the main rival of the protagonist?
>>
>>101912102

No the antagonist is a character that is working against the protagonist
>>
>>101912102
Antagonists can also be rivals, sure, but in the action genre there is usually one or more characters who rival the protagonist without being the big bad final boss.
>>
>>101912102
Antagonist: An antagonist is a character, group of characters, or institution that represents the opposition against which the protagonist or protagonists must contend

Rival: One who attempts to equal or surpass another, or who pursues the same object as another; a competitor.

This. All stories are predictable structures with different novelties filling the spots.

Satsuki is the Anti-Hero.

Nui/Ragyo is the antagonist.

Why do people keep reposting this shitposting thread?

It doesn't even make sense, I love Satsuki but you all do realize that she's going to get absolutely humiliated in the next couple of episodes and job to her Mother, right?
>>
Why are Satsukifags still pretending she is anything more than a jobber to make Ryuuko look cool?
