soapyart replied to your post:“How many main characters have been done right I wonder? I liked Tanis…”

also I think sometimes this happens when the creators try to make the main character so anyone can put themselves in their shoes or that kinda crap idk

This is the worst possible thing imo.

… I’ve also heard that that’s why Twilight got so popular. But even just mentioning that is beating a dead horse that isn’t so much dead so much as it is dust by now.

It does make a bit of sense though, especially for anime where it’s just the gallant young lad out to prove something to the world through sheer force of will.
