She's such a cute and nice girl, but the characters and the show itself treats her like a background character.

It's ironic since she's SUPPOSEDLY the "Main character".

I understand at the beginning it was a joke to make the Main character so uninteresting....but we only have 5 episodes left and they continue to pick on her.

BTW, I'm not talking about the running gag at the very beginning.....I think that's hilarious.

However during the ACTUAL show they don't give her anything to do and the other characters don't seem to interact very well with her.


Imagine if K-ON! treated Yui this way...

or if A Channel treated Run like a background character...

They should focus more on Akari and less on Chinatsu. Chinatsu is annoying...

I think she was designed to be a character without much presence (just kind of a normal girl) and so there wasn't much room to do much with her. The gag took over the character.

This anime does do a good job as my guilty pleasure anime though (though I found both K-on and A-Channel to just be boring).

Who?

Though having a quartet does sound more fun. I like the triplet here and all, but another character could spice things up.

Unfortunately that seems to be what happened.

On the bright side. There are characters like her who know that feel.

You know, like her.

Few care even the mangaka, it's done this way in the manga as well, the fact that Akari getting raped is easily forgotten tells you she is insignificant. Plus Yuru Yuri isn't about Akari, it's more about the drama of the various couplings that are present, she doesn't have one so she is insignificant.

Akari needs a love interest, maybe she can fall for her sister, or become a lolicon and fall in love with the little sisters of the other characters.

I thought it was pretty funny how they introduced her like the heroin, but then she faded into the background.

People get too hung up over this, it's true to the source material, that's the only real material they have to use for her. The manga started the same way, and then Akari faded into the background really quickly. The mangaka's commented on this at points as well. I think it's simply that Namori didn't create a romantic pairing for her and so there's really no use for her as a character due to that. And Namori seems uninterested in changing this, so it's unlikely to change. Akari's just a joke character now, so there's no sense in getting bent out of shape about the anime treating her exactly the same way she's treated in the manga.

I'm not sure changing it would be a good idea, it would probably throw off the balance of the character relations at this point and very possibly could destroy the series.

I wonder how they're going to interrupt her intro in the next episode! I'm actually looking forward to that LMFAO XD!

I bet that once the series is completed, SOMEONE on youtube is going to make a compilation of her botched intros :P.

It might be me. Or someone faster LOL XD

The creators can be mean to her, and her friends can tease her I won't mind. But those damn kids sticking sticks into her hair was overdoing it because we don't know how well those kids know her.

I wonder if she will redeem her lack of presence later on. She's so cute and nice dammit!

Akarin is so cute to ignore her or leave her as a background character... Kyoko and Akarin are the main sources of moe for me in the anime, as Chinatsu has a fucking annoying personality and character design with Yui just looks boring as shit. I hope she gets some major screentime soon.

...And then she really did have no more screen time. But later on at least we did get to see her backside for just a little moment.

But it's okay I still love her the same! My ranking:

Akarin>Ayano>Chinatsu(I like even more when she's mad/frustrated)>Himawari/her little sister>the rest. I think I will like the council president Rise very much too, there hasn't been a female student presidents that I haven't liked. Predicting she may come in between my Akarin, Ayana or Chinatsu scale.

Because people are stupid enough to still be amused by slapstick comedy.

And I am going to watch that video many times.

I do like that the presence-less girl, really has no presence at all (I did expect it to be a joke that would wear off). But for me it just becomes more funny the more they ignore her.

I watch with the thought that Kyouko is the real main character. I think she even stands out the most in the OP.

I only feel Schadenfreude when someone does something bad and gets punished for it (i.e. Kyoko pisses off Yui and Yui hits her in the head).
