do u like it when the writers used the characters as just plot devices and nothing more ,i know that it's good for the story sometimes but still that not a gd usage of a character in my opinon especially when it's done to one of the main characters .i know that most of these characters which r used as plot devices r just side characters but still ..

i wanna know ur opinion on this and give names of characters that u thought were going to play major role but ended up becoming plot devices ..p.s tell me if this is a Dub...

^ She's talking about '' characters'' who you thought to be a main character but is a ''side'' character which the main character use as a stepping stone.

Tin Tin from naroto (it's shame she didn't do much )
Aiko and nabuse from true tears(they were far more interesting than the main cast but were used as foils for the rest of main cast )the writers shouid've focused more on them ...
and i agree with Kaworu Nagisa from NGE

That's very usual in adapted novels. In Shuffle, First introduced(even in the summary) main characters were Lisianthius and Nerine. It turns out that they were just plot line for the anime's ending.

You agree with me but you don't believe what I said

Lisianthius and Nerine were introduced as main characters. Even on the summary.

yeah ,i've read the summary as well and i believe u but they were used as side characters even though they were introduced as main characters this is like what the writers did to aiko and nabuse from true tears (not sure if u know that anime)aiko and nabuse were introduced as main characters but they were plot devices ... mana from sola was also introduced as a main character but she didn't do much ..

They weren't introduced as main characters. Only Noe and Hiromi were the main characters. Also, in sola only Matsuri, yurito and aono were the main characters. The others were all side characters.
