Don't understand why Murano is getting all this heat.


yep! :/

to be honest, i actually like Murano! :) (i haven't read the manga, yet and haven't watched all the episodes.)
she's a pure average, simple schoolgirl and still cute. for me, her repetitive question is
a) showing her emotional attachment, closeness to Shinichi in a pure way. she feels something but that's not a parasite-seeker special wonder ability. ;)
b) her role and words are indicators. the question is a reminder for us to think about Shinichi. is he intact or not? still intact? how his attitude/thoughts about life is affected by Migi's presence? etc.

I usually get annoyed pretty much every time she's on the screen. Thankfully she's a supporting character in the story and I hope it stays like that.

Migi best girl

It's okay if she asks if he's okay now and then, but the problem is that's where it starts and ends. She doesn't inquire about what would lead to a change in his personality, she just complains about why the boy she likes isn't completely static in his personality.

god she is just way too annoying
and that one question I mean I get what they are trying to do but she already asks him after ep2 and 3 I think he wasn't even that different so it doesn't make sense

only after the business with his mother he got cold
here's hoping she gets taken by a parasyte and Shinichi has to kill her because she is definitely a weak point in this awesome show

because she is like Ran from detective conan,
ie,
the only reason for her being there is to be the mc's love (interest) and somehow a link to his ''old world''.
She has nothing to do with the story.
I am sure that if she will get a more active role people might start to like her, but aslong as she os just there, people won't find her more then an annoyance.

Bullshit. She is much better (but I don't hate Kana, just to be clear).
Omg she is naive, but is it making her bad? NO. I like her very much, she is just normal girl.

People don't like her because she knows nothing of whats going on, so when she is naive to the goings on around her involving the parasites people are like, "oh you dumb bitch, your a high school girl and you can't figure all this out?! die!!"

Fact is there isn't really a female lead in this show because as someone said on a previous page, this is really all about Shinichi and his changing and coping with having a parasite in his hand.

She asks Shinichi a question that ignores any logic and rationality. She gets the most obvious answer possible. Then she proceeds to ask the same question 5 more times. Does she expect him to say "No, I'm not Izumi Shinichi." on the 6th time? When Shinichi got mad at her acting retarded, she got offended and started ignoring him.

What she did wrong until now? For me she's naive but pretty cute and a nice person overall. Haven't read the manga.


I get that people find her annoying. What I don't get is Murano-hate paired with Kana-love.

Murano being repeatedly concerned about the mental well being of the boy she's know for years and who she is kinda dating having a complete personality change almost overnight and won't talk to her about anything = annoying bitch

Kana being obsessive about a boy she just met, who already has a girl he likes, and going on and on about how she can only senses him (despite being proven wrong multiple times) and refuses to listen when he tells her to leave him alone = best girl.

I can understand disliking both, but liking Kana over Murano just boggles me.

- contributes nothing to the plot other than being a reminder of Shinichi's humanity, the epitome of useless
- only ever appears on screen to bitch and whine
- has no personality of her own outside of YOU'VE CHANGED SHINICHI-KUN
- speaking of, her constant repetition of her catchphrase is fucking annoying
- exists only as a love interest, not her own character
- despite all this, she receives a lot of (very repetitive) screentime, taking time away from the more interesting parasite part of the show

Honestly one of the most frustrating characters I've had the displeasure of watching. Don't remember the last time I actively wished for a character to die.

I don't find Murano annoying I find her very realistic for being in the situation which she's in...of course they could ((have)) develop((ed)) her character a little more and she'd be more than the Shinichi measuring stick and something for people to whine about haha.

Its been some time, guess i'll post my thoughts again.

I just realized i don't even hate Murano, i just find her to be annoying at times.

Is she realistic? Yes, but that doesn't mean she's a good character.

Murano's behavior is very realistic considering that she loves Shinichi.

If a person who was a coward, emotional nerd turned into completely opposite, you'd do more stupid, annoying and irrational things.

The last episode was in particular extremely good and realistic. You people are so quick to judge inperfections and irrationality in characters.

I don't hate her because he hasn't done anything stupid nor do I like her, she's just not that interesting so far to be liked.

Lol'd at the people who said she's not contributing to the plot/story. It has psychological tag for a reason. What this show is all about anyway? Yes, Shinichi's goal is to kill all the parasyte but it has never been really emphasised again because..

PoeticJustice said:
The focus of the show is shinichi and his transformation, it is not a show with a wide and expansive cast of unique individuals.


And at this point, Murano plays, as several people have said, as a measuring stick how much Shinichi has changed. Is she unlikable? Yes. Is she not relevant? I don't think so. I'm expecting she will play a bigger role later in the future. Hope so.

And how do you expect she should behave in this situation? The person she loves and cares about did a complete 360 personality change. Everyone would do the same as Murano or even worse. This is Evangelion all over again. So closed minded.

It is true but at this point it seems like the only reason she is in the show is to remind the viewer that Shinichi has changed. It would be nice if she got some more character development

Why would you think that characters are only tools to do something for the audience. I find her very realistic and because of this reason a lot of people hate her.

There are better ways they could have shown this imo they should have given her some more screen time/development to allow the viewers empathize with her. right now she just breaks the flow of the show for me. I do not hate her but she can get annoying because I simply do not care enough about her

I don't know, I don't have these sort of problems. I didn't have any problems with Shinji so maybe that's why.

Not to counteract your post or anything, but if you turn 360 degrees you basically end up facing the same way as before.

Thank you. I get not liking Murano if you also did not like Kana. Kana imo is worse the Murano because Kana was just freaking dumb.

The thirst got her killed and that is it from her. All she had going for her was a nice character design.

Don't hate her, just prefer Kana more as a character. Kana was more straightforward about her feeling, while Murano kept denying Shinichi's change and questioned her love, which imo might be why most people dislike her.

Because Kana, even if she was an idiot, actually moved the Story forward, and did try to do something (even if it was idiotic).
Murano is only there for the sake of being there, she doesn't have anything to do with the story => Boring character.

An annoying, boring and pragmatic character. Her catchphrase really started to make me hate her after the fifth time she said it. Only purpose currently is to remind us of the old Shinichi.

One thing i especially don't like is how conservative she is. She's afraid of even the slightest change, looks extremely frail and overall the type of person that easily goes into depressions. I guess that's understandable, though - after all, the manga started in the 80s, things weren't the same as they are now. She's also surprisingly self-centered for being the reserved type - ''why did you go to Kana instead of the movies with me?'' - getting mad and not taking Izumi's word that there wasn't anything between them. Also, it looks like an eventual marriage between her and Shinichi would be extremely taxing for the latter party - he'll literally have to tiptoe around her.

Overall - a character i definitely dislike.

1. His behavior completely contradict that there wasn't going anything on between those two, and you are having issue seeing why she could have doubt? Give me a break.
2. This is playing with guilt to make Izumi explain what is going on, and it also worked if it wasn't because Migi would have killed Murano.
There is also a third thing but that would be spoiler at this point to talk about.

I guess you prefer character with low intelligence, and act very 2 dimensional?

The whore needs to die. End of story.

This anime can be a very good crime/mystery/suspense genre show if characters like Kana and Murano never show up ever. They have shown enough of Shinichi losing his humanity, I hope they focus on more serious things now.

I don't usually dislike characters that often, but every once in a while there is one character that I just cannot like. This time it is Murano, simply because she is bland, boring and she kept repeating the same question. It truly got annoying when she kept harping on Izumi's changes. Which I understand, but it's not as if she tried to really find out either. Sure she hung out with him and he never tells her anything but it was still her choice to hang around him knowing that something was off. If you are friends with someone and think they've changed for the worse, you let them know, ask why and try to figure it out. If they don't tell you, give you no explanation and leave you hanging, then you drop them as a friend. Continuing to harp on the same thing get's you nowhere, move on with your life. Unless there is something she can do to help, which in this case there is absolutely nothing she can do.

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.
