So, I just got through watching the first episode of a particular Gundam series (I won't say which one, as to not spoil it.) And the protagonist decides to skip his martial arts training so he can meet a famous space captain. While there, his friend calls out his name and a pilot takes notice. All the pilot says is: "Hmm, that's a girl's name, but, surprise, that's a boy."

The protagonist then decides to rush the pilot and punch him in the face. Then he attacks some of his military buddies and gets arrested by the cops. When his mom's lawyer (I presume) is bailing him out, he insults the interrogating cop, who throws a notebook at him, so in retaliation, he decides to roundhouse kick the cop in the face, escape the station, steal a cop car, run through a barricade, and let the car ghost ride down the highway, while he jumps out.

All because someone thought it was surprising he had a girl's name...

(Oh, and to clarify, the character isn't supposed to even be a delinquent. He's a stand out student and tournament winner. LOL!)

So, that pretty much qualifies as one of the biggest overreactions I've ever seen an anime character take. What is the most illogical thing you've ever seen an anime character do?

Anime is filled with illogical things. The list here could be endless. :)

How about the School Days conclusion?

There was this one anime and I never remember the name, but I manage to bring up this one situation that happens in the first episode quite a lot. There's this kid who has to pilot a mech to save the world or something like that. He believes he can't do it because it's too big of a task, fair enough. However, after he uses it to stop a few enemies, I shit you not, in the space of about 30 seconds he does a complete 180 and says 'I guess it's my destiny to keep the world safe, then'. Literally, all it took was about half a minute of killing stuff for him to change his mind. WAT!?

Another one is Shakugan no Shana season 3. Yuji, the main character, becomes a villain and starts a war for eternal peace so he and Shana can live together happily. At the end Shana tells him that if he wanted to go out with her all he had to do was ask. So you essentially sit through 24 episodes of their struggle, only to find out that since she has liked him for a while (well they both like each other and even the audience knows it) that all he had to say was 'will you go out with me', but instead he made a deal with the enemies and started a war which never had to happen making the entirety of Season 3 almost pointless. I found it enjoyable to watch, it's just silly that none of it ever had to happen in the first place.

Kousaka Ouji from Mirai Nikki has the single most stupid moment of behavior ever witnessed by mankind.



Also there is another scene from that show I love to imagine from a background character's perspective. It's not exactly illogical, but it's hilarious.

Obviously a morality tale for parents, illustrating that if you give your male child a girl's name, he'll become a criminal.

The entirety of Golden Boy.

Which is only one reason why that show is hilarious.

Too many cases for me to remember. American Television has even more.

I suppose tsunderes as a whole are illogical.

I'd say Jonah's action in Jormungand.

Guy hates all weapons and arms dealers ---> proceeds to travel with and work for an arms dealer

I've finished both seasons and I still don't quite get it, though I suspect that they may be saying something deep about human nature and war. Even if that is the case, it still doesn't change the illogical nature of the decision - it just justifies it from a narrative standpoint, perhaps.
