well if its an action anime. you'd have to make as realistic as possible. so, it wouldn't make any sense to make the protagonist fat. it would be really unrealtic. to see a fat anime girl doing flips and stuff like that.

if there is an manga/anime about an obese girl, i hope its about her learning to work out and take better care of herself. sheesh.

and the concept of a manga/anime with an obese guy? that would be ok because nobody cares about what the guy looks like. as long as the ladies surrounding him are FINE. lovely.

this isn't exactly a girl, but it's the main character.

Anime is generally used as fantasy, and since most people don't fantasize about "fat" characters (particularly girls - basically, they all have to be potential imaginary girlfriend material), they're not going to be depicted. But if they ever make one, I would be interested to see it.

And to everyone else: FAT doesn't necessarily mean OBESE. OVERWEIGHT doesn't necessarily mean OBESE. People who are slightly chubby might get called fat, even though they're perfectly healthy.

And even people who have a healthy lifestyle can still be overweight. The females on my mom's side of the family tend to have hypothyroidism, which radically slows their metabolism down. My mom looks overweight. And even though she eats little (never eats fast food, rarely junk food), and has 100%-vegetable meals a couple times a week, her weight never goes down. Her mother is a lot heavier than she is, despite the fact that she eats a lot better (not much besides whole-wheat sandwiches and vegetables) and exercises a lot more.

Well yeah, actually by the general public that is the assumption, why should every person have to do research about that just to figure out why the main character of an anime is fat, instead the main character is healthy looking to the general public because that is more appealing and believable.

I hate to say this but the only group of people who would get behind a fat protag are fat people irl, and even then the only way they could write the character is like CHOJI from Naruto, more like fat satire than anything, and even Choji gets skinny.

Look if Naruto was fat so many little kids would think being fat is a positive thing, and it wouldn't be believable, I mean come on, a super fast ninja who weighs 350?


So its ok to be fat aslong as there is fun involved and you make a satire out of it?

Not all fat people are unhealthy... lmao


When I say fat, I'm saying overweight. Overweight is unhealthy. And if you find the idea of a fat person being unhealthy so funny, then I worry about your poor sense of humour.

Who WANTS to see overweight protagonists? An unhealthy and fat character who will get shin splints on the first time they even attempt to run is not a very exciting thing to imagine for an anime.
