Commenti Can’t figure out the obsession??

  • If we're just going by popularity as far as how many figures are made of the characters, then I'd agree with some of the other comments here and say part of the reason is their design. Companies tend to make figures of the more stereotypically attractive female characters. Imo this used to be worse since the main male character might not get any figures while the female side characters did, but now they seem to realize that there's interest in male figures as well. The NGNL novels are also pretty ecchi in nature so manufacturers seem to be catering the lewder figures towards an older male market, even if that means Sora gets left out.

    Maybe it's just the design of the characters? If something looks nice it'll most likely be popular.


    You don't need to be super into the story as long as you think it looks interesting.

    I am not really obsess with any anime characters. But, or me, I really liked Asuna Yuki because of the badass swordsman she is (or was). I enjoyed how she could take care of herself...then they decided to make her a helpless character after the first season, which I did not like. Although I am not obsess with Shiro, for Shiro, besides her character design, I am leaning towards the idea of how insanely smart she is. I really like a character that can basically take care of themselves if necessary.

    Honestly, I think a lot of them are based on design. I haven't seen any of these series besides SAO (and I've read the NGNL manga), but I did buy the Kurumi nendo and originally the Shiro nendo, based on design. and I didn't particularly like Shiro.
    I think for SAO's Asuna, a lot of people like her as a 'waifu', because she's considered supportive, a good cook, and needs protection (after season 1, anyway). She's somewhat like a housewife, TBH. I liked her in season 1, because she was this badass swordswoman who could both be feminine AND kick ass, but she's become a typical 'I need protection from my man, who constantly hits on other women' type, so she's left my 'liked' list for good. Maybe some people like her for the same original reason, but I really think it's more of a waifu thing.
    I'm not sure why people like Yoko so much, but it's been that way since Gurren Lagann premiered. I've just always assumed it's the way she dresses.

    It's just people having different tastes and opinions than you. For example I dislike Sinon even though she's extremely popular in the SAO fanbase just because.She wasn't my kind of character meanwhile I loved Asuna starting from the very beginning.You may look for different kinds of characters but for me Asuna was like an example.You take this rich girl,who has pretty much a hard life since not only she has a bad relationship with her mom but her dad almost gave her away while she was unconscious to a psycho.She was abused physically and emotionally and she still finds force to stand up.Asuna is a realistical character and yet non realistical to me.She's just the kind of character for people who like strong willed,tsundereish personality yet still soft on the inside like her. She takes pretty much everything she goes through and makes a lesson out of it helping herself grow more as a person and as a character.I mean a good example would be that I absolutely love Sakura from Naruto yet I can't help but not like Hinata that much because shy characters/calm natured characters aren't my kind of characters in terms of female characters.It's all about taste.

    Some people like Kurumi just because of the way she looks, others have seen her in the anime and like her personality etc. But I myself belong in both of these groups with also having read the LN and just loving everything about her, I love the way she looks, I like her background info and sympathize with her in wanting to achieve her goals

    Honestly, Shiro's hair was the thing that caught my attention about her. I actually ordered a Shiro figure because her flowing gradient hair (ITEM #218050) before ever watching the show. I'm not sure why she's so popular otherwise though, because Sora is just as interesting and important to the series as she is (besides the cute little girl trope i guess which caters to too many lewdish figures).

    Sakura00551 anno/i fa#53243791I didn't finish watching gurren lagann -I suddenly just stopped don't even know why- but I really enjoyed wathing Yoko/Kamina.
    As aperiance I think Yoko has a very simplistic yet recognizable design that really stands out. Her hair, boots, her gun, her bikini and everything that is about her is very characteristic to her. I don't really see that with recent anime characters that much, most of them feel fabricated and look the same.
    As in character, from what I got, she really is an emotional yet confident girl that I really like in a character especially in the lead.
    I really like Yoko for those reasons and I actually own 2 figures of her that I really like!
    I didn't watch any of the anime that those other characters belong but I do know Shiro just from her looks. I like her design, mostly her hair! Can't say anything more than that though :)


    Yeah I don’t think in anyway Yoko was a bad character, I just went into Gurren Lagan after seeing all the hype for Yoko, but never really connected with the character. Nia was the one who stole my heart for sure

    Gurren lagann is very loved among fans so I can see why everyone loves Yoko too.I actually own 2 figures of her that I really like!
