Agree with this one. I'd actually panic that the manga plans to end if Soma starts getting a clue. Soma's dad once said, "Meet a woman you want to devote all of your cooking to." End goal.

Most MCs from action anime are pretty dense. Like Goku and Luffy.

And I know Goku did marry Chi Chi, but he only did it only because he promised her. They were kids at the time not knowing anything about what he promised. And apparently he's never even kissed Chi Chi.

Luffy is so insanely dense I think he may be asexual. Throughout all the years he's shown zero interest in any kind of romantic thought or even a single lewd thought.

Makes me wonder how Chi Chi ever got this man to have 2 kids with her.

Subaru of RE:Zero, though he may just be kind of a nut.


Subaru is an interesting case.



Yeah, your right on that front. I suppose what I was saying was there doesn't seem to be any justification of why Subaru is so hung up on Emilia. Sure she saved him when he first got there, but I don't think that really warrants his actions. Especially with best girl Rem there being so great but he puts here in 2nd place and acts like that's fine. Though personally I do think Subaru is most likely to end up with Rem by the end of the day.


Well, it's like what what HOOfan_1 said earlier; you can't help who you fall in love with. Emilia was there at "point zero" for Subaru, and she didn't just save him from hoodlums, she was also kind to him, treated him with respect, and gave him a purpose at the time when he was completely helpless, hapless and hopeless in this world. Also remember that before he landed in this world, Subaru was a "shut-in NEET" who did nothing but stay at home and play games. Emilia was probably the first girl who ever talked to him at all, much less as an equal and a friend. It's not hard to figure out why he fell for her and remains in love with her no matter what.


For sure, I can understand that. I suppose I'm just thinking its not going to work out at the end of the day. I'm sure we've all had people who we thought were the loves of our life, only for that to not work out for one reason or another. Plus Emilia is likely to end up as a princess/queen/empress (I forgot what the selections are for) and, if the politics of RE:Z are anything like our own, I don't see her ending up with a commoner. Unless he ends up saving the world in one way or another and its known publicly making him some kind of big hero. Also, while I can 100% believe Subaru made it to 17 without having a girlfriend, I'd find it beyond unbelievable for him not to have at least had casual conversation with girls up to that point.

I wonder how often in anime the "girl of choice" isn't the ultimate winner in anime/manga/light novel? I'll wager if we had a graph of all media for the past 10 years, the success rate for anyone else would be rather poor.

By "girl of choice", I'm referring to where the male character has an obvious preference, and that preferred female character doesn't have something that is obviously going to derail the relationship (e.g., being secretly evil, two-faced, etc.).



This. I really find it to be beyond unlikely for him to end up with Emilia at the end of the day. I forgot who said it, but someone made a great analogy which was: Subaru is like Link, Emilia is like Zelda, Rem is like Midna from TLoZ Twilight Princess.While at first glance is looks like Link would end up with Zelda, I think anyone whose played that game sees the great chemistry Link and Midna have and would much rather see the two of them end up together. Though I suppose they didn't end up together, I can't see Rem going back to the twilight realm through a magic mirror that shatters, leaving her and Subaru permanently separated.

Regarding dense characters I'd say the MC of Love Tyrant is a huge one. Though in his case its less being dense and more being indecisive to the point of being so frustrating it almost made the anime/manga almost unwatchable/readable. Its quite obvious that Guri was best girl by a mile.

Well in real life, people very rarely end up with their first love anyway. People usually go through several relationships before they actually have a meaningful long lasting relationship. At least that's the way it is in the West. Anime make it seem almost as if people's first relationships are going to be the people they spend the rest of their lives with.

If Emilia ever did really love him, she would pull an Edward VIII and abdicate to be with him.
