DORAEMOON!!!

Is that counted?

It might not sound nice, but just think.. . . . .

Do people really want to see flabby tummy and saggy breast? That's horror show

Even normal series hardly have fat character. Chubby yes, but not fat!!

Doraemon is a robotic MALE cat from the far future, so no it doesn't count. Besides the protagonist is a low self-esteem whiny little boy called Nobita Nobi.

How about the main character from Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. Though she's not actually that fat, her weight in retrospect to the other characters is often made fun of.

I believe it could make an interesting break from the norm. I'm usually more into it for the story, and generally disinterested in romantic or ecchi scenes between any takers altogether as it is often done for fan service. As long as it is a compelling story, cheese doesn't stand out as such.

I don't know. But no matter how serious the genre, it'll be pure comedy.

I've seen this picture on google image searches, but I have no idea what it's from.



I'm not really sure how many people here know about it either, so good luck. I guess we can consider it "evidence".

Honestly, you are more likely to find manga with fat characters in manga than anime. Manga isn't under quite as much pressure to be... 'mainstream', I guess. Something like that.

Aren't those characters from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni?



Why is Rena fat?

Real Drive, though the main girl only looks slightly chubby, she could be called fat in comparison to most other female anime protagonists.

If it hasn't been mentioned, it's probably 'cause no one's seen it, and those that do give up after a few episodes.

There are several reasons for this:

1. Japan simply is not a fat country. I've been there. The only obese people you'll see are mostly sumo and gaijin tourists. It's not like America where five out of seven people are obese or at least overweight. =_=
2. Japan values physical health to an EXTREME. Being fat isn't healthy, thus they do not want to create a fat character role model who has an unhealthy life style. Especially in anime aimed at kids and teens.


Who would want that? I mean really, no one wants to look at that for a half hour.

Lol, agreed. And I don't think it's shallow to think this way. Unhealthy is just simply unattractive. Skeletal-thin characters look a little creepy too. So do characters who have burns or wounds all over the body...or a sickly complexion, or tons of wrinkles or circles under their eyes.

It's all unsightly to look at, and difficult to enjoy a story if your eyes keep getting burned.........

Same. There's a lot of manga about with overweight protagonist though. Like this one: http://www.mangafox.com/manga/otometeki_koi_kakumei_love_revo/
