heh, i'm not for or against the idea since its meaningless to begin with. if the character has well umm "character" then to me it makes little to no difference if she is fat or skinny, since after all i'm interested in the story rather than fantasizing over anime chicks. but having a fat girl for the conscious sake of having a fat girl is failure, because i hate that affirmative action mentality, however if naturally an author develops a fat girl as lead then great, her perspective of things may broaden my horizons.

I've never seen a fat girl as a main character, although I think it would be nice to actually see one. It would be fun and nice for once.

Nope. I've never seen a fat character as the protagonist in an anime before. However, I think because, deep down, ALL of us are shallow. Let's face it, you wouldn't want a protagonist in an anime to be non-aesthetically pleasing because then, you'd have to see that character all the time.

We're all shallow on the inside...just admit it.

Although, I have to admit, having a fat character as the lead would be entertaining...and new. I would totally watch it, despite my shallow-ness

Is the mom from Mainichi Kaasan (Mom's Life) considered fat? I think she's shapeless...but I dont mind anyway. I still love the anime

I know that the slice-of-life show Atashinchi has a fat mum lead



and she's pretty hilarious.

I can't ever recall a fat girl being a lead character. Eh... still, it's not good to judge a book by it's cover.

I really would love to see a fat girl as a main character. So many people are downing the possibility of a show, without any thought to how the girl could be an inspiration to the people around her. It would be quite refreshing and give a new spin to manga, honestly.

Shizuka from BOYS Esthetique (and all of her friends) are all overweight.

Here's a page, taken with my cell phone. HORRID quality. I know.



Summary (copy pasted)
BOYS Esthetique
Story & Art by : Souko Masaki

No. of Volumes : 5

After being unceremoniously by her boyfriend because of her weight, Shizuka jumps at the opportunity to volunteer herself to herself as a guinea pig in a Esthetique facility, in the hope of achieving that perfect figure! That means FREE beauty treatments all around!! Having to cope with her weight issue is one thing, but beeing surrounded by drop-dead gorgeous attendants might prove intimidating for a girl her size, and Suzuka must overcome her obstacles to prove that even big girls deserves some love!


Wow I want to read that but I can't find it online

have u ever seen any fat people as the main character for anime? ive seen in drama but not in anime. all main characters are skinny.


Fat people take more ink to draw, ink costs money. Therefore, it's not cost effective to have more than one or two fat people, as extras, per anime.

For some reason, I cracked up while reading this.

Chihiro in Spirited Away was originally going to be fat, and we can sort of see it in the design of her face. When Miyazaki saw the character design, he changed to a thin girl.
