Poorfag MCs are the best. Richfag MCs are a close second. Middle income MCs are the absolute worst.

ISEKAIS are generally about ESCAPISM, so it kinda makes sense that the MCs are NEETs.

I actually liked the konosuba MC in a lot of ways and could at least relate to some of his choices, i dropped Re;zero after 16 episodes becasue the choices the MC was making had me clenching my fists in anger.

Also Megumin best waifu.

Subaru is pretty hard to understand. Konosuba MC (I can't even remember his name) was kinda like Simon the Sorverer.

Do you meean it has to be some loser so most of the otaku audience can insert themselves into the MC and feel at home?

It would be kind of cool to have an anime with an older protagonist, reacting to the normal sci-fi/fantasy plots and cliches. And not a joke old man, just a regular older guy who got caught up in some crazy shit.

It would be especially funny if he's like a retired construction worker or other blue-collar worker and has zero patience for the magical world bullshit going on around him.

NEET characters are more relatable than straight-up otaku, certainly, but I'm ready for that salaryman turned loli witch isekai adaptation and would love to see other stereotypical archetypes in such situations. Like a bitchy queen bee/gyaru type reborn as a male goblin/orc/kobold

Camden Sanchez

What brainfucks me the most is that for the majority of the show you can't even tell Subaru is a neet. You might as well have said he was a college graduate about to start his life as a salaryman.

Luke Brown

But Subaru and other NEET protagonists are themselves also kind of fantasies.

Like Subaru, despite being broke, is otherwise a pretty outgoing, friendly, interesting guy in good shape and quick to adapt to new situations.

He's what NEETs think of themselves as rather than what they really are.

Scumzuma was great and i could at least partially identify with him, or rather his decisions and motives.
Suzuki or whatever... I could not do the same. Droped at duel with this knight guy. Not Reinchart, he was cool, the second one.
Megumin best waifu

You are clueless to how self-deprecating anime is. A character can be bashed, called a lolicon and all sorts of stuff, but it won't stop him from attracting pussy.

Otaku, NEETs, etc. don't care. When you're the lowest of the low, you don't get hurt by shit like that. You might even take a sort of pride in it.

i dropped Re;zero after 16 episodes
I have no idea why you wouldn't have dropped it earlier but episode 16 was pretty rough so it could have been a straw that broke the camel's back sort of situation so that's fair.

dropped because mc made bad choices

wow, it's like mary sues are shit archetypes, who'd have thought? the reason you think you relate to kazuma is that you believe you're some alpha who can actually take charge whereas funnily enough you're closer to subaru since you'd probably manage to make shittier decisions.

Thing is though, Subaru doesn't just make bad decisions; his decisions make zero rational sense. Like why the hell did he throw that autistic tantrum at Emilia after his duel with Julius? It literally sets up the entire plot of the second season and is possibly the most out-of-character moment in the show

Benjamin Martin

Kazuma is "alpha" because he's not a complete pussy loser
You're the type of pathetic faggot who perpetuates this binary thinking (MC is either "Gary Stu" or "Beta loser"). This idiotic mindset and projecting insecurites defines the re:dditzero fanboy.

Isekai about delinquent with zero RPG KNOWLEDGE in a NEET FANTASY WORLD?

NEET Isekai is at this point a saturated genre in Light/Web novels. It's taking a lot time to trickle into anime it seems. And yet we are still getting school battle harems.
