Allow me to introduce to you Ichika Orimura from Infinite Stratos. This man is the most dense person in the entire anime world. He has a school of girls after him and seven close ones. One asked him on a date and he thought oh you want help shopping okay. He was pulled into a swimsuit dressing room and while the girl changed he thought about pie. Not the food but the math pie. At the beach all the girls showed off their swimsuits and he is more distracted by his own sister. I challenge anyone to find someone more dense then this idiot because I don't think its possible.

I am wondering about Bell from "Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon".

His express purpose for becoming an adventurer was picking up girls. Hestia is all over him but he doesn't seem to think she likes him in that way. He is infatuated with Aiz and he wakes up to her petting his head and runs away, she comes to the adventurer's office to see him and he runs away. Normally you could brush that off as nerves, but he seems to think he needs to surpass her before she accepts him. The waitress at the pub wants him too.

If only that show would get a true second season, we could find out a little more.

Oh it is so very different in the source novels.

Okay, there's the baseline level of clueless exhibited by any given shonen MC, and then there's Shirou Emiya, as presented in Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. That damn kid needs a brick to the head.


I thought about Shirou. I read the Fate route of the visual novel but I am not sure he was really clueless in that.


Indeed. This is why I specified the UBW anime; I haven't personally seen any other treatment. There, at least, Shirou is as dumb as a bag of hammers, and Rin could do so much better.

I dunno..a lot of scummy boys at her school. Issei is a stuck up prick who seems to hate her..possibly gay. Shinji is a sadistic rapist. Although in the VN when Shirou had sex with her his pumpin had a little too much thumpin and she got pretty pissed at him.

And then, there is the all-time champion character, for whom you already had him at "Dense":

So I'm thinking about Nisekoi and Toradora for this thread, and they both have something in common. They both are PACKED with clueless characters who blunder along in a cloud of deception and/or self-deception...except one, and that character is the one who not only sees exactly what's going on with everyone else, they also try in their own very different ways to influence events.

In Toradora,


In Nisekoi,

all of them?

better question is which ones are not??


This. In fact, I entered this thread to post this exact same thing. Pretty much every character in anime is totally oblivious to anything doing with romance, even when another character is slapping them in the face with their feelings.

Damn, you're right. I think Tatewaki may be the ur-character from whom all these others have sprung.

Agreed, but it's not limited to high school.



Anyway. Sorry, Shirou reeeeeally got on my bad side.

In Nisekoi,



I love Ami, my favorite Toradora character and one of my favorite anime characters period.

As to answer this post, I'm going to say Taiga & Ryuji from Toradora. They're so clueless about what love is, and have these silly preconceived notions of what it is, and eventually figure out what it is in a beautiful manner.
