I feel like the love triangle in Darling is the same as the one in Re:zero. Ichigo plays the same role as Rem in this triangle, but I can't get why Ichigo is not the favorite of the show. For my part I feel more bad for Ichigo than Rem. I liked Zero two tho, but she is so mean

Zero Two is Rem 2.0*

Why do people even look at these characters and not think of them as terrible beyond belief? Be it Ichigo or Zero Two, both of them are horrible. Move on.

Tbf she isn't as popular as Rem but yeah it can change depending on her screentime for the rest of the series. For waifu wars, it hasn't reached that level too.

Actually Re:zero has Subaru who is more interesting than most Isekai protagonist (exception of Kazuma ) and Hiro is far below that. He is a total blank character! But maybe he can become like Simon from Gurren lagann

No.
Do you even know how famous Rem is?
How much fans she has? How devoted they are to her?
Do you know the reason why they made a life-scale figurine of Rem that cost more than both of your kidneys combined?
And do you know that it sold out almost instantly after it was announced?

No. Even 02 will have trouble reaching Rem's height.
(She can, but that depends on how the future holds + how long does Aniplex intend to pay that cyber army they hired for this project.)
Forget Ichigo being Rem.

But ichigo is supposed to have Goro. Rem had nobody. I don't see why for this show where everyone is paired with someone that is supposed to be compatible that she would want boring a** Hiro.

Wasn't there literally this exact thread a few days ago? I know I posted there but I can't find it so maybe it got taken down because of shitposting or something.
Ah well, the general sentiment of that post was that anime is shit and the only way to get a happy ending is by playing visual novels and some non VN games.

That thread was about loud, pushy girls always "Winning" whereas the quiet/emotionless ones (Which I almost always prefer) end up getting treated like shit. I added that the only exception is something like Kore wa Zombie or Angel Beats! where the quiet girl (literally mute in the former) is very clearly the main heroine.

On the topic of this specific show, I haven't seen any of it but just looking at the character designs (and OP posts like this), my opinion is probably going to be what you'd expect. Another stupid bitch winning while the better girl gets treated like shit.
Although I doubt I'll ever get as emotionally attached to this show/girl as with Rem since that was a special case. I did list other shows that pissed me off for this reason but on a scale of 1-10 of how much something pissed me off, those would max out at 7 while the Rem (and Naruse) situation would be an 11.

Tl;dr I definitely sympathize with anyone angry about whatever the situation is in this show but I don't personally care very much right now as I haven't seen it.

tbh , Ichigo > Zero two. ( Despite that I love both of them but Ichigo is much better ). It's sad that best girls mostly never wins like Rem and Ichigo.

They both suck. Ichi is way too passive aggressive and emo. Super annoying type to be in a relationship with. The best one is that long haired koko.

It baffles me why people fuss over this, this was obviously going to be Hiro and Zero Two's story, you could tell that just by the promotional art before the anime even aired. You may like Ichigo better, but that's not going to change the fact that her and Hiro are never going to be a thing.

As for why people like Zero Two more, people like bad girls just as much as they like bad boys and overall those types of characters tend to be more layered and interesting characters imo. It also helps that Zero Two isn't just a bad girl, she's a sexy monster bad girl. We won the lottery with her lol.

Plus we're just partially through the series, so these characters aren't fully developed or fleshed out yet.

Ichigo still functions like a proper character, unlike rem, who is just the accumulation of all otaku's and weebs' wet dreams. That's why she doesn't get the same treatment.

Lol, well Rem didn't become anything special until episode 18 of Re:Zero, so I guess if you just look before that then sure. Ichigo would have to do something similar to be noteworthy though, but I'm pretty skeptical considering her role in the story

I have been in a relationship with a girl as ichigo to. People seams to like them first (i did) But actually those girls are really pain to be together with for a longer time. For the same guy says above.

I like charismatic girls like zero two (have one as a friend if you count out the horns and OP and are super cool). But understand why most people would not. You need a special personality to handle those girls and many can´t handle them.

Ichigotypes = breaks you down in the long run.
zerotwp types= Roll you over as a steamroller if you don´t have what it take.

Or play it safe and goe for girls like the other 3.

It's true, although there are a few personality differences but I hope you guys are not implying that Zero Two resembles Emilia because they're quite different lol

as for not having popularity, like someone already said, Rem is too much of the usual 'waifu material' guys in Japan are fond of, hence her popularity. Ichigo on the other hand is not made with that in mind... she seems pretty normal and less docile.

I like 015 but she seems to be very low in charisma points, if anything, she doesn't have any, to overtake a character like 002. 002 is more fascinating as a main character and anyone who denies that better find some other anime to enjoy. You take 002 out of this anime and it becomes a boring anime.

015 only has kindness going for her. And if "childhood friend" wasn't a big loser's tag on her already, she is now utterly sibling-zoned. That aside, I wouldn't find her bossy side as something negative as 002 refers her to be though because she is the leader of the group and many leader characters have that bossy side about them, whether we like it or not. However, she cannot seem to follow it though when she needs to get her acts together. If it wasn't for 056 explaining the situation or what was on 015's mind, the others wouldn't have followed through with her commands during the fight in episode 6, and even if they did, they would have been confused as hell. So she lost a bit of her points as a leader there as well. There were glimpses in episode 6 that she is actually a very good fighter/pilot: saving Genista and then covering the back of Strelizia at one point as the 26th's leader pointed out but we really need to see if she is worthy of a character to rival someone like 002, in either charisma or as a romance interest, you name it.

So right now I am a bit perplexed with the fans in Japan since it looks like she is favoured even after episode 6. They got Rem overtake Emilia in Japan as well in the past. But even for Rem, it took much longer for her to overtake Emilia. If you go and check the boards at 2ch you will know what I am talking about. They have a whole 015 appreciation board there with hundreds of comments, mostly positive. I just don't get Japan sometimes. I dunno how they pick best girls. What does Japan see in 015 that I don't?

Likewise, in bangumi 015 is 126/86 over 002 right now. Last time I checked it was 112/83 after episode 5. So the gap is widening which I find absolutely bizarre.

nb. 2ch got Katou overtake Utaha which I absolutely approved of. I mean she is the Main Heroine and absolute gem of a character so there are times when I do get Japan.

Rofl! Please tell me people don't actually thing Ichigo is best girl! Have you even watched the anime? You might be able to argue her personality is better then Zero Two. but Hiro obviously cares about Zero Two more. Episode 2 20:10 says it all about his feelings. As far as personality, that's all personal preference. I find Zero Two's more enjoyable because she is a much deeper character and a lot more fun to watch. Zero Two in many ways reminds me of Holo from Spice And Wolf, who is my all time best girl. To me, the idea that people see Ichigo as best girl is like thinking Norah is best girl in Spice and Wolf. There is a reason both reference the ONLY love interest for the protagonist in the title.

Yes, I think so too, I hope Hiro notices how bad is 02.
she is a traitor that's what i think and he will save her but he will not love her ever.

Let's hope he end up with Ichigo and have a happy ending.

By the way anyone thinks that when Ichigo and Hiro tried to drive together, that when they had over 100% compatibility, they suddenly disconnected for unknown reason, it was weird. I believe 02 or "papa team" had something to do with it, anyone else thinks so?

Actually NO. Because REM different from ICHIGO will go for Subary until the very end. BUT Ichigo will be paired with the leftover Goro, because Trigger MUST give everyone a parter. Like in the shit Kiznaiver...

So, Ichigo is NOT Rem 2.0.

You're rooting for an underdog, which is typical, but let me voice an unpopular opinion.

Both Rem and Ichigo are one-dimensional characters that although sometimes captivating would be very boring material for a main heroine.

I don't really feel sorry for Ichigo like I did for Rem. Although she will lose Hiro, Ichigo still has best boi Goro to look after her who I think would make a much better partner for her than Hiro once she gets over the mc.

Ichigo will live happily ever after with Goro. Goro is such a nice guy. This is why I like non-harem shows with a gender-balanced cast, as we can see many other good and cool guys among MC's group of comrades where those guys will get their own girls. Monogamy is a million times more superior than harems or polygamy anyways.
I am someone that would like to watch a Harem Anime with 2 male leads that each gets their own harem company of girls from the main cast. For example, 1st male lead gets a company of 4 girls and 2nd male lead gets 2-3 girls etc.

Ichigo is Rem 2.0 but also Subaru 2.0, She likes Hiro but Hiro likes ZeroTwo, but then there's Goro who likes her, definitely Goro is the pure Rem 2.0, the one who puts others well being before himself. Being third wheel to the one being also third wheel.

This show reminds me of Ano Natsu de Matteru.

Ichigo is Kanna (similar looks and blue hair)
Goro is Tetsurou
Hiro is Kaito.

Main Girl Ichika is also voiced by Tomatsu Haruka just like Zero Two.

Tetsurou likes Kanna.
Kanna likes Kaito.
Kaito likes Ichika.

Ive just re-watched the Darling in the franxx episode 9 and i gets where you got that logic. Nice one.. while watching this one, it kind of reminds me of Re Zero Episode 18, that Goro and Ichigo moment upon re watching it, i still have the same reaction...I love you (as goro said) but Ichigo said thanks for being a partner!!! (Atleast he has no regrets already)...

No one knows, not enough plot progress to guess. Only Goro said 'I love you.', Ichigo, Zero Two and Hiro are on cliffhanger to show their true colors towards respectful darlings or each other. I mean they should say 'I love you' or similar words to convey their own emotional proof.

Neither Hiro nor Zero Two say that ILY with natural meaning, and I am not sure what Zero Two means when she says ILY to Hiro at some point. Because, at episode 10, she was very upset. Shouldn't she share what is disturbing herself, with Hiro.
