Characters that you relate to in cartoons and anime Anonymous 19156

For me its Mayaya from Princess Jellyfish

Anonymous 19158


Yanagin (the one with the glasses) from daily lives of high school boys. Even though she's a minor side character, her man hating is completely justified and, dare I say, based.

Anonymous 19159


Also Nina Hopkins from Kuroshitsuji for the same reasons as above as well as the fact she's a shotacon.

ill try
when I first watched SEL i related to lain mostly because I was also a mostly friendless awkward highschooler who tried to replace real human connection with the internet, but i never related to any of the more popular/philosophical/semi-religious theories abt the show so i just made my own. i doubt this was the intended or ~true~ meaning but i liked to imagine that lain had really bad memories from a few years before the show takes place and had tried to run away from the person she was when they all happened (basically her wired persona) so she mellowed out and developed more childlike interests/hobbies as a way to cope (like her plushie collection and her bearsuit i guess.) the reason she became interested in the wired again was because she wanted everyone to forget about who she was before and instead remember her as she is now. her family is worried about her because they still remember how she was years earlier but they didnt want any of that up to her, and lain projects her feelings of lifelessness onto them to excuse herself from not talking to them much anymore. i could write more but i dont rly wanna turn this into a lain theory thread kek

An anon in another thread made me remember how much I related to Raven as a child. Remember that episode where she fell in love with a character from a book who turned out to be a villain trying to break his curse? Not only did I relate to her a lot, she was so cool, I wanted to be like her too. I mean, I liked practically all the characters in Teen Titans, but nobody came close to how much I liked her.

But when I got into the internet (for real, not just to play Flash games), I discovered how much people sexualize her and it saddens me, it's infuriating. So I cope with it by pretending it doesn't bother me, that I like it a little too (I don't). But what I can't ignore is how she was apparently the cartoon crush of someone I like, someone who has no interest in me. That's making me conflicted about this character, and it's making me re-evaluate why I feel this way about her, about him, and about that fact. It's really fucking with my head and I think I'm being childish.

Anyway, they really ruined her in TTG.

Hey, I think your theory is perfectly valid as well, even if it's not the "intended" meaning.
>i could write more but i dont rly wanna turn this into a lain theory thread kek
Then make a thread about it! Either about Lain or fan theories in general.

Tooru Mutsuki from Tokyo Ghoul, because trauma.
It sucks so much that the fanbase misrepresents her character and treats her as an Aiden

the closest would be rei ayanami since i don't know how to express emotions at all, most likely because im autistic. also, when it comes to my work, i dedicate myself completely to it. i have been told i "sacrificed my individuality" by doing so.

>For me its Mayaya from Princess Jellyfish

Anonymous 21504

Her passion and joy. I really relate to her raw passion and her excitability. despite the fact that she is awkward and afraid of people, she has this energy burning in her, and she is constantly thinking about her fixations. She also just yells so much and is so spazzy in her body language. I think I relate to the rest of the girls in the show, especially with being afraid of people and having agoraphobic tendencies, along with having rigid fixations AKA autism/ocd but Mayaya just stands out to me the most.

She is modest, nice, friendly, polite and hardworking.
She took over the shop from her parents, even thou she doesn't even like it that much. (But does it for father)
We have the same hair..
Also she secretly wants to be pretty, but would never admint it.
Yeah, I like Sophie.

Lilo Pelekai from Lilo and Stitch. Might as well add Toph Beifong, Tsukimi Kurashita, and Alucard from the Castlevania Series too. I always related to characters who were outsiders due to their personality, or aspects about themselves they couldn’t change. Extra relatability points if that character was unironically depressed and hated by society.

I think everyone can relate to Madotsuki at some point in their life. When you're sad, lost, alone, afraid. When you're too scared to leave your room. When you don't even want to be awake anymore. We are all Mado. I first played Yume Nikki in high school when I was at my lowest point in life, and it resonated so strongly with me.

When I was a 14 year old weeb I wanted to watch this anime.
I only made it to her debut episode because I related to her and her obsession waaaaay too much. So when that guy (whose name I don't wanna remember) broke her heart in a million pieces I got extremely uncomfortable and sad and dropped the anime forever. I think I actually cried.
I don't know what the fuck got into me when I bought the first two manga volumes many years later, but I hated it for other reasons so I also dropped that. Although yeah, most of the hate came from bias lol.

You relate to your husbando? That's so cute

Sorry for the doublepost, but I just remembered that I didn't just relate to her, I self-inserted as her when she first appeared. So that's why it affected me so much, lmao.

I don't care if you think this sounds silly or edgy; this post inspires incredible venom to well up inside me. It makes my jaw clench and face tense whenever I think of what he was physically and mentally reduced to. Neither the manga or anime explicitly shows it, but I think he was castrated as well. The breadth of his limitless ambition and potential, brought to near nothing by the unworthy, for the sin of spending a single moment as a human.

You're going to make light of it?

I'm sorry to attack you over a well-meant, innocent post on a mongolian basket weaving forum but I can't help it. I don't understand how people can not be just as enslaved to him and his story as I am.

At first I wanted to post Daria only, but actually can relate to Jane also - fond of art and alt fashion, being more lively and nonchalant in my adult years
At the different periods of my life I had similar looks even
But yeah, Daria - oof, I feel her
Though I don't bother to harass people verbally, if there is no good reason for it
And I write pretty poorly and treat it like a hobbie
While I have similar patterns in behavior, as well as in speech and similar voice tone, also the same name, same hair, do wear glasses, dress alike - not unusual for me to be compared to her, so that's that

I was exactly like this. Especially as a hiki-neet.
