Is there any particular archetypes that aren't prominent in anime that you feel would be a breath of fresh air in the animeverse?

I, for one, really don't see too many extroverted nerd characters. Where are the Urkels? The Steve Smiths? The Neil Goldmans? Not too many of them in anime, apparently...

Or better yet, how 'bout the female lead NOT be a tsundere for a change?

Well, God doesn't pop up too often. He's there sometimes, but not always.

Male mc who actually have the balls to confess to the girl.
Childhood friend that ends up with the mc.
Non talking mascots.
D Cup tsundere girls.

That's all I can think for now.

Male MCs in harems having more than one male friend as well as rival harem kings who are trying to steal members of his harem.

Also girls who aren't always flustered around the guy they like and fall in love slowly, rather than the first thing that moves.

Anything not involved with slice of life or high school. You'll find plenty of unique and multi-dimensional personalities if you stay away from those genres

Animals that don't talk or have personalities. Like Ao from Akatsuki no Yona.

Pretty much all the above.


D Cup tsundere girls.
Expect for this. Boob sizes are kinda annoying. I'd say female characters with more normal busts if anything. Especially those in high school.

Old ladies who aren't always sweet and kind
Middle aged women
Young male MCs who are not interested in girls
It would be nice to see some racial diversity, like black or Indian/Pakistani and Chinese characters who are not so hatefully stereotyped
Fat or obese people who are not always comic relief.

In a team oriented anime where there is one or two males and three females- to have one of the girls be the lead instead of the guy.
