Supporting Characters, why do you do this to me.

Anybody else feel that some of the supporting characters are better than the actual main characters? Mainly, i'm talking about supporting characters in harems but in some cases, other genres as well. List some of the supporting characters that you wanted the main character to be with instead of the lame ass main character.

Close this thread if one exists.

Rana Linchen



For Lana it depends on if your talking manga Lana or anime Lana cause they are two completely different characters sadly (fecken anime is a pretty loose interpretation of the manga >:C).

For anime yeah she is definitely more fun than the silly moe-ized Satella but for the manga she is about as shallow as a paddling pool during a hose pipe ban and is purely there as a cockblock so no for manga imo.

Freezing aside I'd say the majority harems have side characters I like as much as or prefer over the main heroine.

Examples being Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai, Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi and Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? I prefer Mina, Madoka and Yuki respectively.

It is a bit of a shame actually cause she started off well then the writer just kinda stopped giving a fuq about her and didn't develop her at all lol.

I will never ever EVER forgive this anime for giving her the shaft







As for the thread, yes I have come across that multiple times where I find the support characters are better than the main characters.
A quick example would be Durarara.

Oh and Charlotte is best girl in IS, just thought I should throw that in there.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I always thought orange hair = redhead, though Charlotte's is an extremely light shade of orange.

It would be easier for me to list anime in which I liked the main character most. I just prefer supporting characters in general. Main characters fall into a comparatively limited number of roles and archetypes, whereas supporting characters cover the whole characterization spectrum. I'm a major supporter of ensemble casts, for the simple reason that in an ensemble, there is no main character, allowing for a more balanced and unpredictable story.

I stand corrected.

Before I risk derailing this thread any further, here is another supporting character that turns out to be better than the MCs:

Uryuu Minene from Mirai Nikki.
I didn't think I'd feel for a character that was introduced blowing up a school.

I agree in some ways and the final choice wasn't that great.
V This girl was my favorite and should have been chosen IMO


I'm really partial to the troubled or dangerous female characters. Also the shrine maiden, swordsman female characters, or strangely quiet ones like Michiru Morishita from Love, Elections & Chocolate who are never chosen or were never love interests to begin with. It would be great to see them chosen more often.
