Would you watch an anime series where the main character is copied after you?

Depends. If it were a dramatized version of my life (like a guy version of Azumanga Daioh), or if it had some sort of science fiction/fantastical element to it (or both), I would consider. But if it were just my normal life, it would be boring and offensive.

Any genre/version you want it to be.

Having a character based off you in any type of anime series is boring, regardless if it's NOT based on your life?

But I already saw the first 10 minutes of Welcome to the N.H.K... (hyperbole)

It would be really interesting... because real people have multi-dimensional personalities... so it's hard to re-create the personality of real life people.


For example, I would say I'm Tomoko (Watamote), Konata (Lucky Star), Nakamura (Flowers of Evil), a bit of Chrollo (HxH) and a bit of Light (Death Note). So it'd be interesting to see how anyone can re-create all of that into one character.

Probably for bit, then I'd say "More interested if a good female character replaced this useless moron".

I don't think so. I realize you have a soft spot. It just... irks me for some reason.

But it's over now, so meh.

And, back on topic:

No, I would not because it's already been done in a sense. I'm that male side character you see in a majority of slice of life/harem shows. You know, the perverted funny one who sometimes pulls off being a badass when the main character is acting like an ass (ie 'You made her cry you bastard! *punch in face*) and usually gets one of the girls (I want to say the tsundere types?) said main character friend-zones.

So really, I'd watch an anime with me as a side character rather than the main character.

Yes, I certainly would. As long as the plot doesn't correlate much with my life, that is. I'd like it to be semi-serious, somewhat "adventury," a touch of fantasy/supernatural, a little mystery, and plenty of horror. Preferably Seinen, but I can make do with it being Shounen.

My life has no action or drama in it so I guess would be a boring anime. It would go like this

" shit finals are coming, better cram my way out of it" or " im gonna take a little nap"

You're trolling with me right? :P

I don't really have a favorite genre, I just have genres I don't like at all, so far at least :P
I like shounen, romance, shoujo, josei, slice of life, yaoi, yuri, mecha, sci fi, mystery, horror, thriller, just about everything except for magical girl. (with few exceptions, like Madoka Magica).

I think it could be turned into a really interesting story.

Anime has turned board games and hikikomori subjects into fascinating shows after all. I don't think I've ever watched a show about a nurse and rarely someone who isn't a teenager, which makes it even more fascinating to me. I think it would definitely sell to western audiences.

Quite possibly but i seriously doubt it would get green lit. unless it appealed due to its uniqueness.
