Re: Favourite anime hero
HAHA As I said, I don't hate Amano for being a wimp...but for being almost useless...Anyhow, reading your post I noticed you made some very gud points:

So yeah, Amano would have been pretty much a goner against the 3rd if it were't for Yuno, since he was completely helpless. Anyhow, I did't get upstet with him at this point (he was literally in a death end ). What made felt really mad at Amano was when 9th's first appearance, he decided to ask Yuno to protect him and kissed her (in a scene that had a strong sexual insinuation), but very deep in his head he was just using her (saying this is necessary).
There is when I really got upset. :sy: He relies on others, but not as a sing of trust but as plain dependence and even as manipulation; but he's not even clever and can't think/anything by his own will. I saw him like a weak untalented selfish and pathetic MC and thus hated him (cause must confess, I might like manipulative characters).
To finish quick, I can't relate my self to Amano (even if we have things in common or it's his behaviour is actually understandable/reasonable-to some extent-) and there's nothing about him I admire...Can't like him as a character
