I’ve never watched the show, but from what I’ve seen it’s the most misandric anime in history.
I mean, what’s so funny about a teenage boy being victimized for things that usually aren’t his fault? I’m telling you, if the genders were reversed, they’d all be arrested. But NO! Double Standards are in effect here, people!
I’m sick of this mindset of “depicting girls as strong by having them constantly beat the male main character” that’s run rampant in anime for so long. It’s not funny. It’s miserable.
This is also why I can’t stand Sakura from Naruto. She doesn’t deserve him. Hinata liked Naruto from the beginning, SHE deserves Naruto.
And speaking of Sakuras, Sakura Ogami from Dangan Ronpa. She’s universally acknowledged as strong, but does she ever hit Naegi for some slapstick reason? NO! (Although it may have to do with the fact that if she hit him, he die on the spot) Ogami is an EXTREMELY strong female character, but she doesn’t have to resort to a “comedy act” to show it.
I like One Piece, and I acknowledge that Nami can come off of this as well. But there’s no romance in One Piece, or any serious one for that matter. When Nami hits Luffy, it’s to keep him in line, not for the sake of hitting him. This is why Nami > Sakura.
But for you Sakura fans out there I will say this:
Naru Cutthroat Bitch.
