Hello, it's me again! Last time I asked what romance isekai tropes y'all liked and hated. This time the question is: what makes you like an MC (main character)? And what sort of MC makes you completely drop a story? It can be a male protagonist or a female protagonist. I'll go first: Male protagonist: Like: guys like Daniel from Lookism, weak to strong, cares about sidecharacters, tries to help, good with kids, badass oneliners, wins a fight in a clever or unexpected way (surprise me during fights. If an mc wins a fight with just his words, consider me sold), acknowledges mistakes he makes (and apologies for them), has feelings other than berserk anger or obsessive love with big titty mama or pessimism, social butterflies (emo loners can die alone in their chosen corners) Dislike: overly selfish guys who only think about their own profit even though they've never suffered before (like a NEET suddenly gainubg powers and becoming a real asshole), weak wimpy guys, perverts (I despise these guys), forgives his abusers too quickly, holier-than-thou complex, monologuing 'philosophical' assholes (you're not Socrates, sit the hell down Author-nim) Female protagonist: Like: clever manipulative girls, trying their best to survive, gets sweet revenge on her abusers, funny girls, tries her best to better her life and herself, independent but still okay with getting support, when they curse (always a lol moment for me) Dislike: faceslappers, damsel in distress (never saves herself), goes back to the guy who cheated on her or bullied her or humiliated her (like gurl watchu doin?), cries to get het way, sees every other girl as an enemy, inferiority complex, has no storyline aside from trying to bag the guy, doesn't learn from previous mistakes Curious to read y'all's opinions!
