I wanted to discuss theses two guys.



They're two of my most favorite characters. Yet, I am not entirely sure why I like them so much.
So I wanted to know what other people's reasons were for liking them.


1. First, do you think these two are similar?

2. Second, tell me the reasons why you like them,(if you like one and dislike the other or if you hate both, that's cool, just explain why).

So you don't like Kaiki as much, or you were you describing both of them?

I think they are both fine on each of their merits.

They're similar in the sense that they have traits that would not be normally associated with the protagonist of a show.

They are extremely pessimistic about human nature (cynical? I think that's the word) and they use that to their advantage.

Hachiman has shown more emotional response to the trap than any other girl. Obviously we know how this will end.

1) Visually they kinda do look similar (though Kaiki is older version). Both are cynical and in their own ways find ways to manipulate things/take advantage of things to their benefit.

2) Hachiman I relate to majorly hence why I like him, especially on the 'nice girls' view of his. The world really is an unfair place and you're better off do what you have to do and not much more, while closing yourself off. I just like the idea of a non-fantasized main character that Hachiman represents, he's more realistic than some out there (not insulting those characters just pointing out that Hachiman is more realistic).

Kaiki I really don't have too much of an opinion on either way, though I dislike him hurting Karen. In a way he may even be what Hachiman has to look forward to in the future. He sees humans via a cynical lens, which imo is a good way to see them.

I guess I like seeing characters that are cynical and not saying how you should trust people and care about them cause they'll do the same for you. They won't for the majority of the time, at least that's my experience anyway.

TBH Hikki's affection for that guy always made me feel uncomfortable.

as for Kaiki, I wanted to hate him at first because he's a con-artist but his dialogue and VA are too good!
Like, the manner in which he goes on and on about things in such a roundabout way, I love it.
