Am i the only one who finds Eren not annoying? Like yeah, sure, Mikasa can deal with it. But thats only because she had to deal with his sh*t since they were kids. I've heard people say he's annoying & I don't find him annoying?

I don't like:
Ganta from Deadman Wonderland
Mikado from Durarara!!
Shuu from Guilty Crown
Mirai from Kyoukai no Kanata
Yukki from Mirai Nikki
Tsugumi from Soul Eater NOT!
Saki from Shinsekai Yori
Izumi from Parasyte - He was fucking annoying. (first few ep's)
- But I like Migi*u*

Also:
Asuna from Sword Art Online (& I really hate Kirito x Asuna, eeww._.)
Hiyori from Noragami
Hitoe from Selector Infected WIXOSS
Stella from Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry
Nashetania from Rokka no Yuusha

Special:
Shuichi from Gravitation - I know that he's uke but ... Shuichi is acting ... really stupid >< sometimes.

And who ruined whole show:
Chitanda from Hyouka - I can't stand her, I fucking hate her ... dropped bcoz of her.

- Even when I don't like them, I'v finished it. (except Hyouka, but that was really horrible combination. It was about .. hmmh .. nothing? and Chitanda was annoying asf)
But others - I'v enjoyed it even when there was someone I didn like. & I don't regret anything~ (k, maybe I regret watchin Soul Eater Not ... it was really boring)
So no. Disliking MC can't ruin a show for me. Cuz there's always someone/something I like/enjoy.

I wouldn't call him the greatest character in fiction (that's Shiroe ^_^), but I can't understand their hatred too. Most likely, it's coming from people who can't appreciate morality.

Know right? You can also throw in Houki and that Chinese discount childhood friend character in that mix. And IS would infinitely be better.


Wouldn't that just be Strike Witches.

Would anyone even care at that point?

I only started watching IS yesterday (because I wanted to see if Ichika is really as dumb as you say. I'd say he's dumb is a quite amusing manner.).
But still, isn't Strike Witches an obviously better show?

Is is subjective, the main point of the topic is to see which animes were less enjoyable, because of WHO for everyone. Just out of curiosity.

Eren is a great character. Mikasa is the terrible one. An avocado has more personality than her. It's hilarious how everyone around her is being interesting and all she can do is protect Eren.

Wait until you get to the second season. IS is actually quite tolerable at the star; it was enjoyable enough for an average harem show.
But the second season...My god, lol. It becomes awful.

It's cause she is a bad-ass female character, people love those types of characters even if they have the personality of less than an avocado.

In my opinion it is nearly impossible for an animes only flaw to be the MC. There is no such thing as a perfect anime but there are some really great ones out there. There are however some where the weakest point is their main cast or stupid character development (I'm looking at you, second season of Tokio Ghoul and Ore no Imouto).

I don't mind badass females, but give me something to hold on to. Ryuko is mostly a badass, but she has an overblown moral hero style. Mikasa just stands there.

Lulwat. Strike Witches was terrible to me. I enjoyed both seasons of IS more than that anime.

I think people just hate hotblooded characters. I can sort of understand that since they kind of come off as idiots, but it's usually not the case. Eren's not an idiot. He came out top ten of his class. Most people don't really even take the time to understand them before they jump to hate.


Take Yuu from Owari No Seraph. He's a lot more careful than people give him credit for. He's also a lot more self-conscious and realistic than people give him credit for.

For me, Strike Witches is a perfect anime. Cute girls doing cute things, fanservice, magic, asskicking and WWII, all in one package. Worldbuilding is really fun too. Now, if they were in school, it could be the archetypical anime all the others wish to be like.

Edit: And of course, the total craziness of the premise: alien invasion that can only be stopped by magical schoolgirls cosplaying as airplanes. That makes it 200% more anime-like.

Alright, I'll just accept that we have different tastes in anime, though I do want to add, that I do enjoy anime like Arpeggio, and that has fanservice, asskicking, and submarine warfare with submarines that have female shaped interfaces.

Strike Witches's ridiculousness is indeed ridiculous but it's the kind that rubs me the wrong way.

Ichika in IS is pretty bad in season 2. They try really hard to keep the status quo for no actual reason. He should have been in a relationship by the end of season 1 if they wanted to make him a good character, but they couldn't do that because they wanted to introduce more girls and the fans couldn't decide on who their favorite heroine was.

Nope, of course you're not the only one. Eren's my favorite. XD I love hot-headed, passionate characters, especially boys.

I liked Lelouch from Code Geass' first season and it's one of the reasons why I liked the show so much. However I started not liking him that much in R2 and that kind of ruined the experience for me. So yeah it can kind of ruin a show for me if I don't like the main character.

But if the main character is still crap a show could still be good if the supporting cast stands out a lot more. But I bet if I liked the supporting cast more in Code Geass R2, it still wouldn't hold up in my opinion since the majority of attention is on Lelouch.

I think it can, because in most series the whole story is about the MC. ;P
+ the MC also got the most screen time. So if you really hate the MC....
But what everyone said above me, other characters can also make the show likeable.

Yeah, the MC of Akame ga Kill (Tatsumi) really pissed me off.

That show had a few interesting side characters (arguably other MC's), but Tatsumi was just a pain in the ass.

It absolutely affects the entire show.

Best examples are:

Emiya Shirou of Fate/Stay night- the hero of justice (just what is that?)

Amano Yukiteru of Mirai Nikki- the most stupid weakling!

I feel like I'm one of the only people here that doesn't have a problem with any AoT characters. Mikasa's personality, or lack thereof, makes sense from what we know about her backstory. Her unreciprocated psychological dependence makes sense as well and would make for interesting character development if the writer realized what he had going on (or maybe he does and I just need to read the manga).

Having strong feelings for a character - either love or hate - is usually a sign of strong writing so I'll probably hooked in. The sin I can't forgive is _boring_.

Harems are an exception since the main character is often the least important person to the story.

Yeah, it can. A lot of the focus of a show will be focussed on the main-character, and thus, if I don't like the main-character, I dislike a huge focus of said show. If said show doesn't have a lot of redeeming factors(For example, said show could have a really strong supporting cast), I will probably dislike it.

I think it can ruin the show but also not, it depends on how much the show relies on the MC to make it good or if the show itself is enough to make anyone watch it. I´ve disliked many MC but no one comes to mind right now, but i dont think it has ruined a show that much for me.

I guess it's possible, but so far I haven't dropped an anime or outright hated one just because of the MC.

Not even Yukkiteru could make me drop Mirai Nikki.

Of course, there have been shows in which an annoying MC made me like it a bit less (for example, I enjoyed Sakurako-san... less than i would normally have because of the MC's annoying tendency to "preach" morality and whatnnot. It got on my nerves, particularly in the episode with the cat skeleton at the school's lab. I gave the show a "fine" rating instead of "good"). But even when there is an annoying MC, it doesn't often change my opinion of an anime.

There's so many friends of mine, that recommend me a anime/show and say 'watch it for this character' instantly i think, no, what about the main character? Because really the whole show revolves around the MC and if they aren't interesting whats the point?

Sure there are shows that don't fully revolve around the MC and still turn out good, but i'll never be able to say that anime was 'really great' because the MC was bland etc.

One MC i really hate is Kirito lol.

Realism can be good but Shinji's realistic behavior reminds us of why we wanted to escape irl for a few minutes and watch something like anime in the first place

Definitely. A lot of anime these days are hollow and redundant. I find that if I can't like a character(s) then I'll definitely get bored with it, evidently disliking it. I think that there are a lot of anime with main characters who are intentionally written to be a certain way that T R I G G E R S the viewer, I can appreciate good writing like this and its clear when this was intention because it'll have a lot to do with the plot, or the character's background. Its a rare thing for new anime since they often poorly recreate character development which you'll get plenty of in manga or light novels. It is what it is..

ABSOLUTELY!

- Danmachi : Maybe it was because of his voice actor (i really don't like Matsuoka), i couldn't stand Bell. BREASTia Hestia being there also did not help.

- Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei : Tatsuya and his annoying sister can fall into a ditch and die for all i care.

- Aldnoah.Zero : Inaho is probably one of the worst and most boring MC i have ever seen.

- Mirai Nikki : Yuuki ruined a good portion of the show for me.

- Himouto! Umaru-chan : Despite the rest of the cast being likable characters, Umaru's shitty personality was too much for me to handle.


The thing you said about Mahouka made laugh so much. I couldn't agree more man. I think that show was dropped within the first 5 episodes just because of those two... uhhhh

Also Akane from Pyscho Pass pissed me off so much, but I didn't drop it. I just wanted to gouge my eyes out everytime she came on screen.

I think certain MC's can ruin the show and make people drop it. Eren in AOT is annoying as hell, but I can suprisingly over-look him because of the show itself and the other characters in it. Another one I overlooked was Accel World even though I could not understand this fat dude getting his own personal harem... I mean COME ON!

I wouldn't say that it would necessarily "ruin" an anime for me but it definitely does lessen my enjoyment at least a bit. How much would depend on how good the story and the other prominent characters are. For instance, I couldn't stand Amu in Shugo Chara! or Shuurei in The Story of Saiunkoku but I still enjoyed the shows thanks to the stories and the other characters.

Though I have to admit that there have been a few series that I've dropped almost immediately because of the main character. Can't think of any by name at the moment because I dropped them so quickly but I know it's happened.

It's been a while since I've watched or read the series but I seem to recall her being a little inconsistent for my taste. Like in one instance she would be cool and tough and then she would get a little whiny and indecisive for me. I also found her to be a little overpowered (especially when she got Dia, who I didn't care for at all) since she had four times the amount of transformations than most of the characters. I also don't like most main characters where the majority of the people around them seems to think that they're awesome and great at everything and loves them because that's not exactly realistic...
This is what I seem to recall anyway, once again, it's been a while since I've read or watched it. She just kinda rubbed me the wrong way I suppose. No hate on anyone who liked her. Just not my style of female lead really. I will saythat I hated Shuurei a lot more than her and she's not the worst female lead on Earth but I didn't care for her.
