now that u mention it.. no I have not. Really.. have never thought about that, but I am not surprised why no one ever choose fat girls as the heroine Of course if some authors really dared to do that, that would be a failure(I think). Who the heck wants to watch a fat girl as the heroine of an anime storyline :O It is like the real world. Every media portrays only thin models as the 'heroin' for normal girls.

Well.. It could be fun if a person ever tried to make a fat girl the heroine in an anime :D




Fat girls don't exist in Japan
or at least not any cool charismatic
ones we should give a damn about


u son of a ***, ah just kidding.- of course fat girls do exist in Japan, to be exact there is a lot of fat girls in japan. Look at the real life and not the anime world. They have so many fat girls in Japan ;o

Are you stupid or just ignorant?
Are you really trying to gesture that a person of a certain weight can't have a certain personality?

If your female then would you want your anime full of big guys with rolls and a double chin that bounces as such? Anime or any other medium should never be about being "Correct" or taking the "Moral" Highroad. Its about giving the majority of people what they want. Jeez.


No, it actually isnt. People don't watch anime because the characters are skinny. Making and realistic character wouldn't be throwing about the majority's want. More ignorance. How I love it!


<3 I love you! XDDD You make such great points!!! ^.^


I mainly use facts. Not opinions and ideals people tend to rely on. "Fat doesn't sell." Yea, because fat people are so disgusting that if I see a good anime with a fat main I'm gonna burn it.

While the Japanese do look down on the chubbies, they do not equal to negative sales. Many hentai series feature bigger women, and they get great sales. Not only are they SELLING, but they are actually being preferred by the general populous as to skinny women.

So my question is... if these people like to see them naked... why wouldn't people like them in a normal story? Oh, we don't know simply because an animator hasn't attempted, or it just isnt their style. Not because it won't sell.

There are many manga with "cool charismatic fat girls." Just not many animations.

"No fat chicks" - Homer Simpson

Well what do you people deem is considered 'fat' anyway. It's a rather broad and vague description. What one might see as fat, another might not.

Honestly most anime is rarely about real life, i mean fat or skinny when's the last time you were sucked into another dimension only to find a problem bigger than yourself and before you can return home you have to defend against a huge evil thing (deep breath). Putting a larger person as the main character would mean bringing a real problem to the screen instead of something everyone can relate too. I'm not trying to be rude to anyone so don't go flaming me. Most anime fat or skinny deal with rejection, loss of parents, loss of love, children, being poor, being alone, and a number of other problems then they usually had loads of surrealism to overcome the obstacle. If you want to see an anime with fat people then make that manga popular. Otherwise enjoy the anime we do have, and stop all this fighting it's insane.

Since being skinny is considered a norm, there's nothing there to relate to. More people can relate to being overweight/fat than can to being skinny. More people can relate to real life tragedies than they can to the crazy generic stuff that goes on in anime. Mangaka don't create things so people can relate to the characters weight. They create to fantasize and capture their audience and for over all entertainment.

Now do you want to say that creating a larger character who went through everyday things or had some crazy power just like some every other skinny character wouldn't be easily relatable because of their weight?

Was that said by Homer?
I thought the old crusty millionaire suggested that for a billboard.
