Characters like Yuu from Charlotte or Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul. All the time I see people like "OMG Kaneki is sooo kewl" but I really don't see what there is to like.

because deep inside them, they want express their self without any social judgement and thinking unique is good.

Because everyone wants to be like the cool and dark protagonist that had a shitty life but keeps up with it because everything is going to be daijoubu. Most shows though fail when making those characters so people with little more brains call them edgy.

Still haven't left the emo clique.
"If you died, would anyone care? Would they really care? Maybe, they'd cry for a day. But, let's be honest no one would give a shit. They wouldn't. The few people that would feel obligated to go to your funeral would probably be annoyed and leave as early as possible. That's who you are. That's what you are. You are nothing to anyone. To everyone."

Yuu is a drama queen not edgy.
And Kaneki is a badass (not sasaki, he's a wimp)

I don't understand why people assign Kaneki as a cool edgy character, he's far from that. The point of his character isn't trying to show how much of a baddass he is, but that as an individual he's completely broken and psychologically fucked. The guy has some major PTSD issues and a split personality disorder to the point where he's living on the brink of insanity. The ideals he grew up as a kid took a turn for the worse as he grew up.

But naw animeonlys or people who watched the anime first and read the manga can only think about muh edgy character is a badass. Oh Kaneki is so amazing, I wish I could be a badass like that. However the thing is Kaneki isn't a badass far from it. He's a failure who took the wrong turn and his life ended as a tragedy.

This is what a shitty anime adaptation does to a series.

The series wouldn't be the same if his character was different in the slightest but I agree he is one of the edgiest.

Edgy characters might be not likeable as people, but "fun" as characters.
Also, people are screwed up, and can get to like all sorts of characters. For example, I like Gasai Yuuno - the complete opposite of nice.

Why do people overuse the word edgy, and what's more, why is everything edgy nowadays?

It seems to me like people calling others edgy are just insecure, or they want to pass off a ''mature'' vibe, something along those lines.

That is often the best way to describe those anime in a few words. Edgy is just the short word of Anime that tries to pass itself as mature storytelling when we all know the storytelling is childish and pretentious. Charlotte tries to be a drama but has forced comedy that is completely absurd for its setting. in one scene the President is complaining about people using their powers and in another scene a student council member almost killed dozens of students in a cafeteria and the reaction is like "Oh, this happens every other day".

firstly you are trying way to hard at being a critic with your "why does everyone do that, like i dont do that since i am so different from the rest of society" thats pretty edgy btw

secondly everything that is trying to show the darkness of the human heart is edgy and popular series do that as well like GoT and Mr Robot.The question is just is it good or is it overblown.

Yuu is awful as a character ImO. I pretty chain facepalmed during the 7th episode, that was hard to watch due to how badly the drama was done and how uninteresting Yuu's teenager angst was... >_<

This is when the little sister is used ineffectively as a plot device in order to progress Yu's character but fails miserably and we're back at square with Nao and co.

this, the reason why i hate cheap tearjerking drama. using character as plot device and make it noy humanlike at all. i prefer something heart warming, or better crueal as fuck condition with better atmospher building bit by bit, or destroy the atmosphere quickly. Koi kaze>key

I personally don´t get the appeal of edgy characters.Like I´m quite a few episodes into hunter x hunter and it’s extremely apparent to me that Killua is a fan favorite but I don’t like him that much(personal preference pls don’t attack me).I know he’s a well developed character but his character type never appealed to me too much.

to tell the truth, it depends of a person's age, cultural education and life experience. Viewers lacking one of these three properties will appreciate edgy, boring, dull, conventional, angsty and extremely controversial recurrent characters.
