I think there are few bigger characters because most people do not see biggness to be attractive and in anime the characters for the most part are all beautiful.

Sadly when most people think of beauty they think of skinny men and women. I personally think anyone can be attractive in their own way but it would seem animators don't think that same way.

Even when there is a bigger person in an anime they are most likely a supporting character that barely anyone likes OR sometimes in anime's there is a fat guy that is a huge and disgusting pervert of some kind.

Anime isn't perfect when you think about it.Still needs improvement in order to include all shapes and sizes


I agree with you about beauty stereotypes. However, I found this the other day and thought it was pretty unique. I'm fairly certain it's hentai, but the women are a lot chubbier than any anime I have seen, yet they are portrayed as sexy instead of goofy or awkward.



Yes that was hentai and that link didn't lead to the woman you were talking about. It lead to what seems to be the general opening page for the website.


Yikes! Mind editing your quote so it's not on there anymore? Don't want any kiddies looking at that... Sorry




lol I edited it. Be more careful next time


You got it!

Ranma's dad in Ranma1/2, plus he turns into a bigger panda.


Genma isn't fat though, he's just got a torso like a tree truck.

It's not just anime, most media does not have fat people as a protaganist, UNLESS it is comedy. Let's face it, those that are packin flab are not typicaly quick nor intimidating. Being overweight comes from inactivity for the most part. What villian is going to be afraid of an opponent that spends more time eating than any other activity?

(for the record I am one of those above fat guys.)

being a larger man myself ....I wonder why there are so few hefty anime charecters, and the majority of those who are fat are rarely "cool charecters"(options are stupid and slow, or smart and a wimp) ....my question is where are the smooth talking hefty men, or the strategist ....no all them are skinny ... in the end fat people are typically given the roles of pervert(al la green green), scientist who hides at the slightest danger, stupid antihero(conan), or stupid villian(every action anime has one)...the only cool fat people I can think of are choji(who is still relatively simple minded), and guru from dbz...so what cool fat charecters can you think of...and why do you think hefty folks are given these roles?

I searched the forums, most the fat/ obese threads I found referred to CR members, except the fat girls as protagonist which I feel is different enough for this to be a seperate thread


You're right. Most Anime characters are skinny types. I thought of Josuke, the baloon guy, from Basilisk. He was cool and confident and, if I remember right, he would make jokes about his own rotund nature.

Same here xD except it's not exactly the same, since he basically doesn't care whether he's fat or not ^^
