Ever come across a character that showed promise at first but ended up not living up to your expectations? What character do you think had wasted potential? For me it was Misa from Death Note. Due to her having her own shinigami, it seemed as if she was going to be a formidable rival and then trust worthy asset to Light and his plans. But alas,
I still love her Lolita outfit, though.

Dude from infinite stratos. The man is king pimp at school with the girls but stomps all over their feelings with his denseness plus he has lost every single fight he was in. He needs to be saved every single time. Although i will say i do enjoy the show, just not the dude.

Recently? The dude from Maid-Sama was disappointing. I thought he would be a cruel sadist, but he seems to be pretty kind so far, which makes the anime boring. Also, the protagonist from Witch Craft Works. The typical "I'm so scared of kissing a girl" act is lame. I mean, you'll give up your eyes for her, but kissing her? Oh, that's a problem. Irritating.

On an unrelated note: The protagonist from Baby Steps has the dumbest anime haircut of all time.

This thread goes to Sword Art Online. After episode two's ending, I was hoping that Kirito would become this anti-hero figure that the other players could rally against and in the process clear all 100 floors, then he derps around for a couple episodes, then he gets married, and it all goes downhill afterwards... And then Asuna turns from a cool mysterious chick to a 2D tsundere, and gets even worse than that in the second half... I really want progressive to rectify some of these issues because I want to like the series.

I hope i dont get to much hate for posting a Naruto character on here but, i would have to say Obito
Uchiha is probably one of the most disappointing characters that i can think of right now.

Oh, I actually have one that comes to mind immediately - although, she's a tad obscure.

Yui Takamura from Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse.

Initially, she was given a fairly interesting backstory (which I won't spoil), but when the show started to kick off, she had this no-nonsense "tough-as-nails" attitude - and you felt like she had reason for being that way because of said backstory.

Somewhere along the line though (i think at like episode 5 or 6) she devolved into a generic tsundere whose only purpose is to act all conflicted about the protagonist. Normally, I don't mind these characters. This time, however, I feel like they actually took a perfectly good, interesting character and forced her into this role like pressing her into a mold. I was disgusted and never really recovered. The show itself had many other problems that caused me to drop it half way through, but I still remember how disappointed I was in Yui's devolution.

This is the only correct answer.

I use to have fun times with my friends playing videogames and watching anime.

But everything changed when Sword Art Online became an anime,

mikoto suoh of K


I was expecting him to be super powerful and give it his all on the last fight, but he didn't... Overall, K's ending was disappointing.

Nana from NANA.

She's the main character who started as a strong woman and ended up weak and whiny.

The whole anime was disappointing, such a waste of great animation and what could have been good characters.
