your thoughts on simple-minded anime characters?
Posted 10/1/13
examples are tsukishima from mushibugyo, or luffy from one piece

i can't think of anymore at the moment, brainfreeze, but if anyone wants to list some more, then feel free to do so.

they are sometimes stupid, mainly ignorant of what's going on in their surroundings, characterized by the inability to analyze another character's inner thoughts/malicious intent.


but it's the quality of innocence and naivety that attract me to these characters. i voted "likable if executed appropriately with the script".
I don't like luffy's outright stupidity, but I can appreciate Tsukishima's simplemindedness as it goes well with the script.


Your thoughts?

I'm a bit tired of it at this point.

I think it worked best in Dragonball (pre-dragonball z)... goku's character fit perfectly with the wackiness of the original dragonball. The comedy worked great with his character.

I like simple minded characters. They help things not to be so serious and sometimes can be the smartest out of the bunch when others over complicate things. There are some problems that seem so big but have very simple solutions.

Naruto is a great example of a self-righteous simpleton who frequently claims to feel- and understand- and relate to- what everyone around him is going through, but never really does. He's of the kind of people that are so blinded by how things "should be" that they completely fail to see how things "really are".

Can't stand it.

The protagonist is always the least informed.

What would Outlaw Star be without its Aisha, Tenchi Muyo without its Mihoshi, Azumanga Daioh without its Tomo, The Slayers without its Gourry? They'd be sorely lacking a vital component and feel hollow.

We need fillers and sidestories to have a sufficient background; if it was always headliners and primary antagonists and nothing in between or around there would be no welcome distractions or comic relief to balance the tension and the plot would be too linear and predictable.

Well, it depends from show-to-show whether or not I like simple-minded characters, and I will just leave it at that. Some are really great, while some are just so bad that I can't stand them.
