Hey guys, ive been watching alot of anime recently, really my whole life. ive always noticed (and hated) that in most anime the main characters are always weak pussies, or they dont know what they want, or even if they are the most awesome person in the world, a tiny girl with no special power can hit them and they go flying. its stupid and rediculous. why is it that anime are filled with the weakest, stupidest, most inconcievably inept characters imaginable. it used to be only a trend in romcoms/harems but its becoming more and more prevelant in other genres. do you guys get aggrovated by this, or are you fine with it. and also do you know of any main characters in anime that are able to get around this trope?

Those kind of main characters are usually the type where the (male) viewer can mentally insert himself there instead of the main character. It can be interesting to see those kind of characters develop into strong people like Simon in Gurren Lagann or Bunmei in Occult Academy.

Really though I see people bothered more by something like Mahiro on Nyarko-san because of they don't like him doing his thing with forks towards Nyarko(or how he won't even consider Hastur's feelings for millions of years).

Netorare... those protagonist-kun's who aren't really protagonists who let his girl slip through his finger tips.

There are three types btw, I've explained it before so I won't go into details. Basically it is the worst of the worst.

If you wanted normal stuff then... most harem protagonist-kuns.

Personally I can see where they are coming from, though I find Nyarko sometimes deserves being hit the forks, Mahiro tends to overboard sometimes, and not just with forks, sometimes in general regarding Nyarko and her feelings towards him (the season 2 finale is a good example of this)

The mc's I tend to dislike are characters like Shirō from Fate/Stay Night, the goody goody guys are good guys to the point of being annoying about it.

Hey main characters from Hunter X Hunter are not strong but not weak and they don't fall into these cliches. Also for all you guys who watch Nyrako-san have you really seen season 2 and season 1? He becoming fond of her he blushes around her a lot and they kiss twice. I understand also he kid he has to sort out his feelings while she a deity, prob like 800 years old lol.
