Yeah i was just imagining how would that plot work. You know, because 2 yanderes would just be a regular, boring couple, which doesnt give anything good as to make a story out of it.
But what if something happens with one of the yanderes and they just become normal with time? And then realize that their partner is crazy? There we go, plot, thats what i was thinking.

One of them would eventually stop being a yandere, thus realizing how crazy/fucked up his gf/bf is, and would start spacing out from them (Thus plot material/crazy shit start to happen and stuff)

so you want a yandere that stops being yandere?
I don't think that's how yanderes work. But even if i'm wrong , i seriously doubt there's a story with 2 yanderes , much less something as specific as the one you search.

It's not really wrong since even I can consider him a dark and edgy MC because being such a John Doe, it stands out the most.
User avatar #960766 - warbob (06/06/2014) [-]
I consider him good at acting. His inner monologue doesn't seem the smallest bit of dark/edgy to me (which is sadly missing in the anime so perhaps i'm just looking it from a different point of view compared to someone who hasn't read the novels)
User avatar #960787 - killerliquid (06/06/2014) [-]
I'm not saying he's a bad actor but being an all-competent MC makes him quite the John Doe, being an all-purpose plot device.

Still, it is an accurate representation of what an OP MC should be.
User avatar #960811 - warbob (06/07/2014) [-]
i ment that I don't consider him dark/edgy for the said reasons.

All in all it's not hard to see he's OP , but I don't dislike such characters , if anything I find compelled to see their thoughts since I rarely have the chance to.

I'm still holding onto the idea of a possible dark plot twist with him just acting out just about everything and perhaps even becoming a villain. The other option I see is fighting spiritual "aliens" like the parasites as an end goal which doesn't seem very enticing.
User avatar #960812 - killerliquid (06/07/2014) [-]
I'd totally go for the Miyuki-turning-against-the-Yotsuba plotline.
User avatar #960813 - warbob (06/07/2014) [-]
imho this is the current plotline (just far in the future?)

I'd completely love it if it turns out that he was acting everything out , was using his sister to achieve some goal and then (for example) joined the humanist movement or something antagonistic like that

wild theories apart , what's up with his goal about the thermal reactor? His whole motivation around it is virtually non-existent (or at least not displayed) which also fuels some of my theories.
User avatar #960815 - killerliquid (06/07/2014) [-]
I'd absolutely hate it if he joined the "humanists" because anything discrimination like is absolute bullshit.

I think it's because he wants to be a magic engineer that he chose the thermonuclear reactor magic problem out of a selection process which had the criteria as, "The most efficient way to speed up magical/technological progress." Or something like that
User avatar #960829 - warbob (06/07/2014) [-]
joining them for revenge is quite believable after all the bullshit he's been through.

I'm not sure if he chose the thermonuclear reactor because he wants to be a magic engineer or if it's the opposite. I also see no motives for him being a magic engineer considering his whole life besides guarding his sister (not sure if I should still consider that a spoiler) is based on engineering.
He's said to have no strong emotions besides brotherly love yet he is determined about being a magic engineer, actively pursues the creation of new magic and creating a thermonuclear reactor while gaining acess to classified data of the universities , being irreplaceable part of the military (as well as obtaining data from them) and being able to see the strenght of the future strongest magicians first-hand and/or bond with them.

I may be a bit paranoid , but I always question it when one person is in a position to obtain heavy influence and various important , including classified, information all the while being the backbone of numerous structures without any clear indication why he's doing any of that.
Now that I think of it why did he even join the millitary , he should have already be perfectly capable to be an outstanding fighter and obtaining better equipment could be done from the FTL (or whatever the lab is called)
User avatar #960833 - killerliquid (06/07/2014) [-]
And that joining them for revenge is Tatsuya's choice after having his top priority protectin' Miyuki
User avatar #960836 - warbob (06/07/2014) [-]
that's part of the hypothethical plotline where he doesn't give a shit about anyone else and does things with his own goals in mind.
User avatar #960831 - killerliquid (06/07/2014) [-]
If he breaks from discrimination after showing how not inferior he is, it just shows how weak he is and I am not having any of that shit.

Pretty sure the thermonuclear shit is also a spoiler considering the anime just started the Nine Schools Competition.

You're forgetting about the creator of the Loop-cast system and the other half of Taurus Silver, "Taurus." There is also the fact that FLT is Yotsuba funded. Again, Yotsuba being the most militant of the 10 Families.
User avatar #960835 - warbob (06/07/2014) [-]
I didn't mention him breaking from discrimination or smt, because I consider the " you were trying to delete my emotions " part a bit more motivating for revenge than " you don't like me from very very far away " . Also in the guardian training mentioned at some point (volume 12 or 11 ?) there was some shit going down there which could be quite thraumatizing (not even considering the fact that they should've been <10y old) which starts bordering with my theories again.

I believe the reactor is already being mentioned thus I didn't put it in spoilers.
I believe joining the millitary is on his own volition considering that going to the base in the reminiscense chapter was just a suggestion about his day-off , his enthusiasm about it, all the conditions issued about him being in the military from the Yotsuba and so on . Also his relationship with the FTL comes mainly from his relationship with the Yotsuba with his father and step-mother working there and all. And ofcourse the fact that he's very good with magic in general.

so basicly you're sticking to the wrong assumption based on which you dropped the series?
MC is strictly delivering information from an objective (as objective as a human can be) point of view about 80% of the time.

Also saying that you don't care why he's like that is same as saying you don't watch/read stuff for the story itself which just confirms that your tastes are shit.

It could be argued that it's equal part stereotyping men and women, but in no way is it more stereotyping than men. Assuming your point is true, then that means women are being stereotyped into the not-fighter class jsut as men are stereotyped into the fighter class.

As for your first point, most of those stereotypes are self-replicating cycles. IE: It seems weird to have a strong female because we never see strong females. We never see strong females because it feels weird to have them. If there were more female leads, it wouldn't feel weird to have female leads.

Also, sorry I tackled your points in reverse order, that's just how my mind works.

ofcourse it moves in cycles

I ment it's more of a stereotype for men since it's the numbers of male leads that are more thus they're filling a broader criteria of stereotypes.
Then again , I guess the lack of using the said stereotypes for women could also be viewed as a stereotype and we start going in circles.

In the end , I think one should just ignore everything and do things his / her own way.

Your comment has no point to it. If you're saying that the protagonist doesn't matter, then why is there such a huge discrepancy? ~50 percent of the population is female so why are nearly all protagonists male?

If you're saying it's easier to be immersive when the genders match, then that's ignoring 45 percent of gamers.
User avatar #156 - warbob (06/05/2014) [-]
also - immersion based on gender shouldn't really be any different , unless it includes the character doing something doable only by the specific gender (like special priviliges because of the gender , special action because of the gender , heck even giving birth and motherly love - that's actually quite hard for a male to relate to)

I'd guess because sometimes it feels rather inappropriate to put a female character. Not a few of the lead roles are more or less about raw power. Putting raw power in the hands of a female holds different meaning than putting it in the hands of a male. Most males are usually portraited as reckless brutes charging head-on into the fire.
Most females are usually portraited as fast, cunning and elegant, using various tricks to gain the upper hand.
It'd feel rather unnatural to have a female character with buffed up muscles overpowering demons and such (not that there aren't any doing it) seen often because it's sort of out of character for a female to be constantly training and flexing muscles or smt.
Males humans are generally stronger than females and thus it's more fitting for a power-type lead to be a male. Also the first image one would associate with a soldier would probably be male. Or a knight would be more examplary , since at the the medieval ages there were close to none females actually fighting , much less being knights.
A heavy physical work is largely assosciated with a male doing it as well.

If you think about it from another point of view , it's actually more of a stereotyping about men than women.
I could even list out arguments why male and female armours look like that but I don't feel like doing it when it's sort of offtopic.

Why do we all try?
In the end we'll all die
The same outcome for all
The tall and the small
For the people who think they are worthless
And for the rich people who have no sense
To see their lives will end too
And there's nothing they can do
You can't buy your way out of death
One of life’s hardest test
Some people's lives end fast
Like in a shooting or a crash
Their lives are over in a flash
Their friends all mourn
Their family is torn
