what're your thoughts on op mcs? in my opinion, i love them. give me a mc that can obliterate anyone. despite me liking strong/op mcs it's hard to find ones that are well written; most are op mcs that are written to have no flaws. i grew up reading mary sues and remember cringing (after looking back, i dislike 70% of the mary sues i used to read), but i loved the fact that they were strong. unfortunately. most op mcs that i come across follow the same formula; strong, flirty, has a harem, and has no flaws, so i end up dropping the novels because i got tired of the same repeating stories. a lot of manhuas seem to follow this formula, and a lot of manhwas/mangas tend to try and recreate original op/strong mcs without making it original (i'm aware most of my favorite op/strong characters are also recreated/copies of another so i guess i fell in their trap). my absolute favorite types of op/strong mcs are anti-heroes or just mcs that are just nonchalant like mash from mashle (haven't read this one though so thoughts might change on mash), saiki, saitama, shigeo (these were the ones that immediately came to mind) i swear there's more, but i can't name them. and strong characters like agni from fire punch make my head spin. gosh, that story was something istg. it took me a couple of months to fully register the whole thing and i still think about it to this day despite it being two years now since i first read it. reading stories like that though makes me emotional asf. these are just my thoughts and everyone is entitled to their own thoughts, but i'm curious and nosey and i wanted to hear anyone else's thoughts. i have no hate towards weak to strong but there's something satisfying to me about strong to stronger.
