This seems to be getting outrageously popular wtf. Needles cruz but to a small extent, Yuno is semi a whiney bitch for a while but his potential to be a cynical asshole shows very very early for some one that nice to kill and not blink a eye and try to keep a psyho stalker in check Has Grade A tier pysho baster material no matter how much he bitches., Ganta is a whinny bitch half the series. The main character in my sister cant be this cute was basically his sisters Bitch. Guilty Crown main characters a pussy.

Do the asian crowd like this cause it makes us Americans Kinda go confused . I mean i dont mind. But sometimes there unrealistically bitchy and useless its always a kid whos on damn near pacifist levels of bitchiness.

make it more obvious that your ranting about gundam and cultures

also i guess i'll add in that asian cultures have a higher emphasis on respect, but i'd actually have to pay more attention to know what your even actually asking

edit: ok yeah, there is a huge value in respecting your elders in japan, it's probably lessened in anime but some core values would still be there

oh and if your comparing animes from the past to the future it probably has the same trend as english cartoons, they made it more 'modern' by pussying up characters and removing political incorrectness

Most of the animes in the list were new silly Ill shorten up the gundam stuff wait Ill just use spoilers =D.

xz your corrupt opinion doesent count.

Actually Cartoons well the ones that go on DVD and comics are getting more violent and edgy which is a good thing to me =).

And I was asking basicly if there culture didnt mind more timid main characters as opposed to or culture.

ever watched any of the neon genesis series? shinji is the most timid coward at the start of that thing, and he was still pretty fucked up at the end of it.

then again that whole animes cast had mental problems from the start/middle/end but thats why it was so good.

also made in 1993 when i was born

I guess kids back in the days were more into hot blooded stuff and idolize tough larger-than-life protagonists who can make 1% AS GOOD AS 100% WITH HOT BLOOD AND BURNING COURAGE.

These days, angsty teens prefer emo confused protagonists they can relate to.

He isn't the only "special case" in Gundam 00. I think that Hallelujah/Allelujah was more of a broken record. At least he wasn't a jackass like Michael Trinity.

Nowadays there aren't many characters that fit in the "Badass" category. Maybe it's because characters that are capable of being vulnerable are easier to sell to a large audience. Maybe it's a reflection of modern human society

theres a point where it becomes gay, also your wrong, i've actually talk to a japanese girl from japan(and she was in japan at the time) about it before and they still like non-feminine guys.

also shutup with the trap crap

self-proclaimed trap = attention whore

These angsty protagonists are often in anime that are not appealing to girls.

And there's a difference between being feminine and being an emo fucking pussy.

First of all, there's a difference between feminine men and straight up bitches. The concept of masculinity is slightly different in many cultures, and that being said; it's perfectly fine for a male to show non-masculine traits. However; characters who are whiny tend to annoy me regardless of gender. It's fine if they undergo character development, but the stereotypes BT is discussing seldom do. Also, this is by no means a recent thing. Keeping with BT's gundam focus; what about original gundam (1979)? Amuro Ray was super whiny. Ya, he could hit stuff in this gundam, but the moment he was beat, or he hit a slight snag, we were all reminded that he was a 14 year old kid.

Of course, going the opposite direction, overly zealous or super manly men really rub me the wrong way as well. For example, I hate Master Chief. Everything he represents is the overly testosterone driven 13 year old's fantasy. Idk, perhaps he's too manly for me, or I just 'don't get it'. Either way, I guess on this subject, a main character in any direction of stereotype never grabs me. I need someone unique who's amazing in their own right. A good main character can really pull a story together. [/rant]

Gundam has BRIGHT SLAP. That alone boosts the manliness rating of the series by tenfold. That's why BT likes it so much.

Besides, if you want MANLY mecha franchise with LOADS OF TESTOSTERONE, why don't you play ZONE OF THE ENDERS. At least all mecha have LOADS OF BALLS there. And a BIG DONG too.
