The main thing I don't like is how gullible she seems to be. She believes in what ever Izumi says although it's a blatant lie. For example when he jumped from the building and hopped over the fence, then blamed it on adrenaline. Yea that's definitely the answer. I don't know she seems weak minded, easily swayed and just not the character I was hoping for her to be.

She was scared and shocked, she barely remembers details of that moment..

Oh spare me your petty insults. If she was really smart and compassionate she would have just left him alone, until he himself is ready to come forward. The way she pushes him screams of self-righteousness.

As Yuuji from Grisaia no Kajitsu said: ''If you want to talk about it i'll listen, but if you don't - i won't push you''. Probably one of my favorite anime quotes, which obviously doesn't apply to Murano.

Yep, definitely my most disliked character.

You seriously expect a girlfriend to give zero fuck about their boyfriend mental state, and just wait on this boyfriend to do what exactly? Come forward when exactly? If he even does it at one point? It isn't just him keeping secrets, it is also the whole fact that he have completed changed to a very cynical person, who don't even show affection towards her. She likes him and is actually fine with him having secret, if it didn't affect his personality so much, which is why she want to know so she can help him. And you call her stupid because she wants to help? She tried to help and have now given up on this method, and simply can't stay in such an unhealthy relationship anymore.
You even got what you wanted, she is not pushing him anymore, and have now moved the ball into his court.

If you can't see the difference between those two situations, then I'm sorry but I don't know what to tell you.

How ignorant people can be? A little bit irrationality, a little bit more realism and that's it - fuck him/her, annoying, I hope he/she dies.

This anime is fucking great but Murano continues to be the most worthless character ever

why is she still alive?
the definition of boring and bland

how people can defend her with ridiculous claims like she is "realistic" is a mystery to me

Don't you fucking get that she is one of many characters needed for Shinichi's development?

For some reason people think Murano is of main characters. Wrong. Main characters are Shinichi and Migi, rest are all plot devices.

Why couldn't Kana stay alive and Murano just die? Christ.

Murano harps the same stupid lines over and over and over again as if she hasn't said it 10 times previously.

Kana had personality and was interesting, while Murano is the complete opposite. If she dies off, it would be an early christmas present.

The show's crowning moment of stupid comes in the form of either glasses girl tracking down someone she knew was a dangerous alien all on her own. A real head desk moment. Not even Kana was dumb enough to seek one out on purpose

Maybe the constant repetition of that question? I didn't mind it the first two times, but after the third time it has gotten really annoying. It may have its purpose and might make more sense after all episodes aired, but atm I feel like they treat the viewer like an idiot who doesn't have the mental capacity to notice the changes in Shinichi.


She behaves pretty similar to girlfriends when something is bothering them. They get repetitive with the same questions and anoy the shit out of you. HOW REALISTIC haha

She is such a bland character. Look at Izumi and Reiko, they are terrific and well developed characters but Murano is a cardboard cut out. I don't see much personality in her, she is just the obligatory love interest. Which is fine, it doesn't take away from my ability to enjoy this anime.

Even if Kana was a little creepy (the hair wtf) at least she had personality.

Edit: Also she say her ENTIRE class slaughtered, so shouldn't she be more traumatized? I don't get it.....

Realism isn't always good or even acceptable in fiction. For example, what is merely an unlikely occurrence in real life is a deus ex machina or plot armor in fiction- and these generally have negative connotations. In real life, tons of "irrelevant" things happen, such as using the restroom, keeping up hygiene, commuting, and so on. However, these things are never shown unless they're somehow related to the story- otherwise it's just cluttering up the story and wasting time.

My problem with Murano, Kana, etc., is that they don't contribute much (if anything) to the story, yet they're still given copious amounts of screentime. Observations they make should already be clear to the viewer/reader; they don't contribute to the themes nor further the plot in a meaningful way; and the effect they have on Shinichi could be portrayed just as well while focusing on them much less.

In other words, they're in the way. If they don't serve a purpose, then they don't belong in the story, and if they do have a purpose, that purpose should be more clear or realized in a more efficient manner. I don't "hate" said characters, but I consider them a significant detraction to the show.

Bitch adds nothing of significance to the story. Except for Tamura Reiko and Shinichi's mom, no female character so far has. Every minute she gets screen time is a minute that could have been used to advance the plot.

I am petitioning for any Parasite to devour Murano. I would not mind if that scene alone consumed a full episode. I would be glad that I would not have to worry about her ass slowing things down again.

For a female lead, she is extremely generic, forgettable and overall not very likable.

Also her "is he the real Shinichi" line got old very fast.

I like her Murano, I didn't like Kana. Murano cares a lot about Shinichi, and truly loves him, and she always ask him that question coz she is seeing the boy she loves changing and don't talking to her about anything, she is a gentle girl.

She's a boring abyss of personality who could have any other face and name and voice and mannerisms and still be the same inane body-shaped figure who's just there to provide a female lead.

lol at people saying they hate her because she's not Kana though, Kana was a creepy delusional stalker who didn't take a cue when she saw the boy she felt she was ~fated to be with~ kissing another girl and instead took her creepiness to 11.

Yeah, Kana just went straight into a parasyte's mouth, while glasses girl is the only normal person in this show to ever injure a parasyte, and since the kill/death ratio is the only thing that matters in a character, she's obviously the best female character in the show.

People hate Murano (me, included) because she is a selfish, self-centered, short-sighted depressing (cause she is the cause of depression) stupid cunt!

She started acting like a total btch towards Shinichi when his FCKING MOTHER had died, like a couple of days before that!.

Even if Shinichi wasn't a "parasite" his god damn mother had recently died! and in a horrible way! that probably changes people... and she never ever gave him one single break, nor asked him how he felt about his mother being violently murdered.

I would slap the sht out of that annoying whining whore.

And... hello i'm new to the forums i needed to tell someone how much i hate that self-righteous btch.

I don't hate her but i find her (voice(?)) annoying and that kana is even more.

But I find it sad because she don't even know that Izumi's mother is dead.

She just wastes the minutes of the show. Has been the same since episode one, and hasn't developed since then in a good way. As for "Kimi, Shinichi Kun da yo ne", it's cool for one, two or even three times, but goddamn it, she literally breathes that line. It pisses me off so much.

She has no reason to develop in the first place (enough with the misuse of character development). She is weakly characterized in the manga, because she is only important as a humanity anchor for Shinchi and being one of the most important people to him, that's literally the purpose of her character and nothing else.

Her character is only bad, if she is given unnecessary time, which seems the anime did, and maybe because she is voiced by Hana Kana.

I used to like her. Then I felt like she wasnt appreciating the person Shinichi became. He went through a lot and matured alot (and even though she doesn't know why) she kept being negative about it.

Also, she was giving him the cold shoulder because he was acting weird after his mom died.. does she have no soul?

Do you realize what you are saying? You definitely wouldn't be weirded out and concerned if your close friend started throwing dead puppies into trash cans and having no emotions whatsoever when a person close to him ( more or less ) dies ( Kana ). I don't get you people.

I dislike her not because she's annoying. But more because I tired of plain childhood friends. It's the most boring love interest for the MC but it wins quite often (maybe a bit less than tsundere ones). And beibng voiced by HanaKana don't help either. So yes, I would have preferred Kana as main love interest. At least she is more bright and has better seiyuu. But mangaka decided over-wise.

I just don't think she's contributed anything worthwhile to the story since Shinichi turned into Symbiote Spiderman. Her "big scene" this week could have easily been replaced by something else, let alone setup better.
