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.


I've seen you talk about the Fate VN in other threads here and it's usually about the sex lmao.

Rin can do better than every dickhead at her school tbh.

Basically she can come see me, Big Papa. I'll treat her good.

I liked her. She's complex, and I appreciate that.

It should have been Rin's show. That's what really annoys me, here.

Hell with it. I'm just gonna post Rin gifs now.

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



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


I guess my sympathies for Shirou are rooted in reading the Fate route first.



BTW the Visual novel has two ends for UBW



The Heaven's Feel movies come out starting this fall.

For the amount of content in the Visual Novel, there really isn't that much sex, but it does have consequences on the relationships.

To try and stay on topic though. With regards to clueless male MCs and the women who love them. They say love is blind and you can't help who you fall in love with. Rin has been in love with Shirou since they were children. She loves him not because he is the smartest or best looking or most athletic. She loves him for his determination, as shown in a flashback when, as a child, she saw him constanly fail at the high jump, but keep on trying anyway. That's the moment she fell in love with him. They went through a lot together during the Grail Wars. They both risked their lives for each other. There is no substitute for something like that. Neither of them could really find anyone else whom they could relate that experience to. I am not sure they could find anyone else who understands them as well as they understand each other either.

You, you get it. Rin is the best fate character, out of all shows, VNs, and other media in that franchise.

The only one who is better than Rin, is Ishtar Rin from F/GO lmao:

When you put it like that, it makes sense and I almost wanna accept it. He's still a fucking idiot though. Lmao.

This is an excellent point, and it's much the same one I keep making when people dump on Subaru in Re:Zero for his choices.

It doesn't make me any fonder of Shirou, but I get it. ;)

Subaru is an interesting case.



Yeah, your right on that front. I suppose what I was saying was there doesn't seem to be any justification of why Subaru is so hung up on Emilia. Sure she saved him when he first got there, but I don't think that really warrants his actions. Especially with best girl Rem there being so great but he puts here in 2nd place and acts like that's fine. Though personally I do think Subaru is most likely to end up with Rem by the end of the day.

Well, it's like what what HOOfan_1 said earlier; you can't help who you fall in love with. Emilia was there at "point zero" for Subaru, and she didn't just save him from hoodlums, she was also kind to him, treated him with respect, and gave him a purpose at the time when he was completely helpless, hapless and hopeless in this world. Also remember that before he landed in this world, Subaru was a "shut-in NEET" who did nothing but stay at home and play games. Emilia was probably the first girl who ever talked to him at all, much less as an equal and a friend. It's not hard to figure out why he fell for her and remains in love with her no matter what.

I wonder how often in anime the "girl of choice" isn't the ultimate winner in anime/manga/light novel? I'll wager if we had a graph of all media for the past 10 years, the success rate for anyone else would be rather poor.

By "girl of choice", I'm referring to where the male character has an obvious preference, and that preferred female character doesn't have something that is obviously going to derail the relationship (e.g., being secretly evil, two-faced, etc.).

Of course, the same questions could always be asked of the girl.

Subaru fell in love with Emilia because she saved him. Rem fell in love with Subaru because he saved her.

People ask, "why is Subaru pursuing a person who doesn't reciprocate his feelings" The same could be asked of Rem.
