It occurs to me that there are a heck of a lot of anime gals of varying types who think nothing of assaulting guys for the slightest of offenses.

That's a lot of girls I'd stay away from in real life if I were a guy, no matter how darned cute or otherwise appealing to my fetishes they were!

We don't like having our faces rearranged constantly.

My wife's personality is kind of a cross between Rihoko from Amagami SS and Kaya from Bakuman.

Sometimes she's just really funny without trying to be funny. It's certain things she says in certain ways that cracks me up. She says her friend from back in college would sometimes suddenly burst out laughing on the phone telling her that she's really funny while she had no idea what she said to make her friend laugh.

Of course, my wife always replies with "What?" to the laughs.

She doesn't read manga or watch anime but sometimes she does somewhat resemble a manga character (...though that's not why I married her. It wasn't the behavior but the way she made me feel very comfortable around her. Her looks was a bonus)

I think having archetypes in real life would be too much, because archetypes pick out very specific traits and magnify it to fill the entire character. Real people, on the other hand, possess all kinds of "types" in small amounts in the form of mixes.

a real life haruka nanase or makoto tachibana would be soooo hawt.




I have not met many guys irl who are like makoto. But I have met a LOT of girls who are exactly like Makoto--kind, gentle and sweet.

Wish real life guys were more like Makoto, tbh... but maybe it's because I'm also a guy... that's why... they don't feel the need to be gentle to me? idk. I'm just generalizing how it works, and I haven't met that many people, tbh.

You have the same problem as my mom (who is also 4' 11"), I remember when I started HS people would ID her to get into an R rated movie but let me pass by so we always ended up having to wait for her to catch up. They finally have stopped making that assumption now that she is 40.

I found it pretty hilarious, but I suppose you should take it as a complement.

I've met multiple people who look like anime characters in real life, (most of them dress visual kei or like to cosplay alot)
and honestly its pretty awesome to see them in person so visually appealing

My best friend kind of reminds me of the MC in Btooom!. He isn't an ass but he lives with his folks and games. And my wife is pretty tsundere.

Might be. I tend to be more attracted to tougher women, as it seems like I need not be overly gentle with them. But then again, another part of me just wants to pamper them.

I......am complicated.

I don't think anime characters would be likeable people in real life. A real tsundere girl would be too much to handle because of how stubborn and mercurial she would be, especially if she is Kirino Kousaka level. A real life yandere would be dangerous and stressful. Who would want to be in a relationship with a sociopath? Kuuderes are okay, though since they're more realistic.

You read my mind! I don't think I've met any guys like Makoto either, but I think a real life Makoto would make an ideal boyfriend (I mean, look at how he treats Haru! <3). I'm sure there will be somebody who will treasure you and treat you the way you deserve and even better. Don't give up, I'll be wishing you luck in finding your own Makoto!

Though, a real life Haru would probably give me a heart attack .

For me, it'd be the boys since I'm a girl. XD

Um... Well, to be honest, my last boyfriend was pretty similar in some ways to a character I really like... Hiroshi Inaba from "Cuticle Detective Inaba". I think certain traits would be tolerable, if not downright loveable, but other more extreme traits expressed in a lot of anime characters would actually be a lot less desirable.

I feel like a lot of people IRL have distinct features of certain archetypes or at least toned-down versions of said feature. Anime archetypes tend to be set in stone and very extreme, however. Humans have added depth (Get it? because 2D -> 3D. Yes? No? Anyone? Okay.) and I feel like if you ever met anyone who was 100% an archetype, it is most likely the individual forcing themselves to act a certain way or put forth a certain persona.

I've never experienced anyone who was a straight up reflection of any one archetype. I do know a girl who tries really hard, but its just plain uncomfortable and wanna-be. Each to their own though.



Megane Tsundere Loli?



Oh my.

hey, another real-life loli we must bond together and fight the pedos


Haha, I swear. I remember one night I was out when 2 guys who looked around 19-20 came over and started acting a bit flirty and such, and then they asked me how old I was. When I said 18, they didn't believe me in the slightest (then again, I wasn't wearing any makeup that night). I was thinking, if I don't even look of age, then why the hell are you coming over here and flirting?

Haha, oh my. My mum is 50 and people still can't believe it, they think she's in her early-mid 30s. My brother is turning 24 this year and he looks 16 when he shaves off his facial hair. It looks like I have an interesting life ahead, but I can't help finding the way some people treat me to be extremely condescending in certain situations simply because of how young I look. /sigh. Oh well!

Usually real women are more multidimensional in their personality for better or worse, either way real women are far more interesting. Maybe when more shows focus more on more rounded characters I can be inclined to change my answer

I always had extreme dislike for people like that, as a child I was... odd I would always manage to get into arguments with adults and would put up some good points only for them to follow up with "shut up" instead of rebutting what I was saying.

This caused me problems in school as well, I would always have teachers calling home complaining that I'm not paying attention and my parents would respond "Did you ask him questions?" seriously I don't see the problem if I always got an A on the test... I have had 2 teachers that were too hardheaded in the end and we were able to get the school to agree to transfer me to another class. I can't really help it, if I get bored and I don't have something important to accomplish I am going to quietly do my own thing

I always appreciated and respected those who were respectful and not dismissive. As a result of this experience I am always willing to listen to anyone no matter who they are or how old they are. Why can't more people think this way?

Off-topic rant over!
