I am going to get so much hate mail for this, but Eren from Attack On Titan. He just seems so useless compared to everybody else. I was hoping he would get better as the series went on but it actually seems like he's getting worse.

Haha, a better question for me would be: Is there a manga where you LIKE the main character?
So many times, I've skipped over the main character in favor of a side or minor character. I will, however, keep reading because only if the plot becomes horrendous, would I be deterred.
Though, probably the most notable main character I've yet to like would be that kid from Prince of Tennis (good grief, I can't remember his name). It's unfortunate because his match chapters (and episodes) tends to be dragged out so I do a lot of skimming.

Don't worry, I'm the same with Eren. I've told my friends that Eren's character progression goes: Main character > Pokemon > Damsel in distress. Until Eren gets himself in check, I'll continue to skim him over.

I agree too, I really don't like Eren from Attack On Titan but I also have issues with Mikasa, she's cool and super strong but I hate how she always clings to Eren ( but other than that she's cool).

No, if I dislike any of the main characters, I immediately drop a manga or even anime. I have too many things to do already I don't need to suffer through some form of entertainment where one of the main components irritates me. There's too much actually unreservedly good stuff out there.

Edit: I also drop comics, books, and tv shows for the same reason. I don't just watch anime and read manga, I also read books, magazines and comics, and play all sorts of games, including pc, console, handheld, and indie games. Not all at once, I rotate every so often. But because I have such a wide variety of interests, I usually have a backlog and way too much stuff to go through. So, I try to be selective because not only can I afford to be, it's better that I be selective so that I don't get overwhelmed by a backlog of stuff.

Thorfinn from Vinland Saga does it for me. I exactly hate him, but he's so much less interesting than the rest of the cast (Askeladd in particular). Similar situation with Maka in Soul Eater, didn't hate, but didn't much care for either. The only show/manga that I can think of where I actually disliked a lead character, but still liked it was Monster. Tenma was very nice, very smart, and very, very boring. I read it for the Johan:D.

Shuuya Nanahara from Battle Royale was irritating :(


I actually really like Shuuya from Battle Royale. Thought he was really good how he added so much contrast to the story. He had good character development as well as an interesting back stories as well as the actions he did I though was cool.

I stopped reading it too only because I didnt care anymore lol

For me It would be Naruto I find him a bit annoying.....I actually tend to like the villains more in the manga I find them more appealing than the main characters.

I dont care for eren in attack on titan I only read for the plot really since I find it more interesting than the protagonist. I rather have Levi as the Protagonist lol
