Why do shounen heroes cry so much?
>>188261415Why shouldn’t they cry?
>>188261415>Why do shounen heroes cry so much?So we can laugh at them
Maybe one of the reasons is that they live with their lives on the line constantly. They live in their present with all kinds of different strong emotions daily. Basically our lives are extremely dull in comparison and will rarely bring such emotional rollercoasters.
>>188261440C H A D HAD
>>188261415Most adolescents in anime cry. Shonen just has more of them. As they should.
>>188261440Ugly as fuck as well
>>188261440>>188261605>>188261516OH NO NO NO NO
>>188261415Has Jotaro ever cried?
>>188261758>currentThe series needs to be ongoing to have a current anything, Anon.
>Has only cried tears of joyYour king
>>188261415only the shit onesmost of the ones >>188261569and >>188261723have never>>188261758>muh familycried like a bitch when his red eyed freaks all got taken from him
You shouldn't really put those characters in the same image.Deku is a weak pussy that randomly cries for no reason. Meanwhile with Conan-kun, you can already tell how cherry-picked that image is, since he isn't even fully crying. You couldn't even find a picture of him fully crying despite there being more episodes of Detective Conan than any of the other shows.
>>188261415How many times did gon cry? Not so much, so stop being a heartless faggot op.
>>188261415Because Kinnikuman and Kenshiro cried and every battle shounen after those ripped them off.
>>188261415Based OP calling out shounenfaggots
>>188261415Because they are no little bitch afraid to show their emotions. Or to have them to begin with because they dare to care about things.
real question is why do these cheesy ass scenes still make me cry
Jonathan cried when Danny died, when his father died, and when he thought Dio died for good.
>>188262131It was manly tear anon
>>188262215Then what about when Joseph cried when Caesar died?
>>188262079Basically this Also, OP is a cryanon faggot who can't stand others to show their emotions.
>>188261415Like always with anime, because one series pulled it off well and so every series in the genre after that has to try and copy it, but fails miserably.
>>188261415crying is a result of being overwhelming emotions, notably sadness, anger, joy. Either the characters have no grip on their emotions or are in very emotional circumstances (and yes, that's mostly a matter of perspective).
>>188261415Nothing around about crying.
Name one (1) shonen mc better than Gintoki.
>>188262257He lost his rival/friend/brother. Also, anyone would cry for the lost of someone that was quite close to them
>>188262079This is a huge problem for a mans mental health in the west.But obviously, its more profitable to ignore it and at worse further paint it as a negative trait
>>188262281It hurts to see passionate people when you have nothing to care about.
>>188262282Truly a man of taste,critical thinking and antropoligical knowledge. Bless you anon.
>>188262413Kurapika (the MC in HxH is sometimes Gon, sometimes Kurapika)
>>188261415>Why do shounen heroes cry so much?because bad shit happens. shit sucks when it does... enough to make you cry.
>>188262520Did you lost your lacrimal glands in the war ?
>>188261415HxH, the others are generic shit.
They are called shounen babies for a reason.
>>188262131Most Jojos cry.
>>188261415deku is the only bitch that cry for no reason, everysingle one of them are crying because they lost someone
>>188261473Crying is for faggots
>>188263100Or a boat.
>>188263107>this is actually how m*les think
>>188262694>>Why do shounen heroes cry so much?>HxH, the others are generic shit.
>>188263563Let him believe it made sense, most HxH are overcompensaying ESL retards.
>>188263307You sure epically owned me tranny!
>>188263586>overcompensayingI'd poke fun at you but I like this neologism
>>188261415Not based mob from Mob psycho
>>188261415only extreme rage
>>188263652Not him, but HxH isn't a seinen just because it has some gore. Gore at around that level was common place for a lot of shounen in the 80s and 90s. There's also plenty of seinen today that has absolutely no gore at all.
>>188261415Heroes from old epic tales like Acchiles or Roland cried all the time
>>188263652>look, mom, my comic book got badly drawn gore, that means it's mature
>>188262282This is what I came here for.They all tried to make em more manly by crying like they did with kenshiro.All of them fail to do it right
MY BOY CHAINSAW MAN NEVER CRIES
>>188263782>I don't know what Hegel wrote about but I sure can mention him
>>188261415The two schools of Shounen which invented basically every rtrope in existence are DBZ and Hokuto no Ken.The crying trope came from HokutoAlthough Ken only did it like a few times really, mostly when he had to kill his own brothers, or when some tragic loss of life occurred.
>>188263652whatever let's you sleep at night, though I'd assume a (you) is your preferred remedy>>188263826he was a little teary after swallowing and regurgitating Himeno's vomit
>>1882614151.Catharsis2.Lot of niggas just aren't adults3.A man who's willing to go through the things those MCs do have strong emotions and are easily swayed by them4.Is a man not allowed to have emotions? To cry when his heart breaks. To weep from happiness? To sob like a child when the head game is ridiculous? I say to you yes. We have emotions and feelings and we should be allowed to not only express them but express them correctly and learn to fully control them.Also, lot of those tears are fake as fuck and drummed up for emotion points.
>>188261645Kek, what a fucking loser
>>188263782I would bet my left nut that Togashi has barely read the work of even one of the guys he just name dropped there. Honestly he probably hasn't even read a single one cover to cover.
>>188263730Can't take him seriously with the granny voice and doing what Gohan already did.
>>188263826Literaly cried last chapter.
>>188263782>namedropping like a fucking tryhardloloh and bow ya shits
>>188263954Ichigo is a mega chad but cried often anon don't pretend otherwise.
>>188263949>Eren>HeroMaybe if you've only watched the anime.
Nothing wrong with crying once in a while
>>188263782>serie A, la liga, kant, hegelWhat did Togashi mean by this?
>>188261440Holy heck. Picked up.
>>188263652 seinen just refers to which magazine its marketed towards, not the actual content. Being seinen doesnt mean mature, it just means it aimed at older people.
>>188264081A man of taste.
>>188263907>what Gohan already did.???
>>188263912Just eyes watering isn't crying
>>188263954If you know the context of that scene, the name dropping was actually good writing. Not because it made the story look smart, like that anon is implying, but because it was a short but effective way of establishing the kind of character the guy speaking is i.e. that he's a narcissistic pseud.
>>188264081That he likes Hispanics
>>188263652What about HxH makes it's fans so retarded?
>>188261440Tick tock, clovercuck.
>>188263782I often find that people who namedrop a bunch of writers and philosophers usually just read the first paragraph about them on wikipedia. This also brings up an excellent question: is HxH the ultimate series for psuedo-intellectuals, or has it been surpassed by Rick and Morty?
>>188263912The guy did swallow a cake's puke
>>188263652>a few people dying and blood makes manga seinenlmao
>>188263990>Ichigo is a mega chadSomeone who floats through life only reacting to things that happen rather than actually having a long-term goal can never be a chad, no matter how cool he can look sometimes or how many big titted mom-gfs he gets.
>>188264526I wish BnHA was just about Shiggy at this point.
Why do shounenfags feel the need to prove that their young adult novel-tier writing is superior to everyone else's?
>>188264636I don't. I just enjoy mine.
>>188264636Its fun to be part of a team and have a clear enemy and a clear group of supporters.See also console wars on /v/.
>>188264662Drawn this badly it doesn't pass as gore. At least HiroAka got choped off fingers from a guy who actually knows how to draw hands.
>>188264662>or anything resembling actual gorelike your pic?
>>188264711I don't think emulating /v/ is a good thing anon.
>>188261440Alright, time to give BC a shot.
>>188264662Was this drawn by a 12 year old?
>>188262131It was a manly tear so it doesn’t count
>>188264782I take it that you agree with me on everything else
>>188261440Why is this awful series the best shit currently being published in the WSJ?
>>188264769>I don't think emulating /v/ is a good thing anon.There is a reason console wars are such a big thing on /v/ and for the same reason these shonen wars will continue.
>>188261758Why did you even entertain OP's autistic tirade my fellow Hunterchad ? There would be nothing wrong with Kurapika crying over the loss of what was his entire world at the time and i think it's pretty safe to assume that he probably spent sleepless nights crying over that.
>>188261415It's a good way to visually show internal conflict
>>188264930>the best shit currently being published in the WSJNot even close
>>188265037Its funIts fun to call each other "Hunterchad" and "dab on the plebs" and just do this kind of silly posting
>>188261415Goku doesn't cry.
>>188265444He's no hero. He's Goku.
>>188265255That baby is Hisoka.
Modern shonen heroes cry a lot. We were not fucking crybabies back in my days.
>>188263713>I-I was only pretending to be a retarded Nice one you sneaky little faggot
>>188265255What if Leorio or Gon out of the sudden, gives Kurapika a hug. How would Kurapika react?
>>188265772I bet your dad hit you a lot
>>188261415who's the guy on the bottom left corner?
>>188265943He's actually super nice. I just learned some of my values I still hold today with though shonen heroes, not your small emo teenagers.
>>188265444Goku is a sociopath. Dude was going to let Freeza live after he killed Krillin and as far as Goku knew he was dead for good this time. All for the sake of his fight boner.
>>188266064>who's the guy on the bottom left corner?
>>188261415Media for childrenSentimental factor>>188262079Crying and generally being an overly emotional bitch about everything is a sign of children and women. Men aren't afraid to cry, they do not cry so freely and easily and thus don't cheapen moments that warrant the display of intense emotions.

>>188266818What magazine is it in?
>>188266818I'd say "since it was published in Weekly Shonen Jump." But HxH is sure as hell not weekly, so who am I to say it's shonen either
Adult goku never shed tears actually
Is there any other protag that goes 360 degree alignment change like gon in Chimera arc?Seriously, it really hit me.How gon was an all cheerful and innocent kid to go so mad that he threatened a innocent bystander.
>>188266924How does that make it a non shonen?
>>188266924>wall of text
>>188261415see>>188262079This. There's nothing wrong about expressing your emotions. OP and people like him care too much about what other people think. Imagine being so insecure about your masculinity that you bottle up your feelings to the point of becoming an emotionally stunted passive-aggressive man-baby (which is what usually happens when people do this IRL).There also seems to be this general view on the internet that apathy is good and getting mad, showing emotions, or actually caring about something means that you "lost" somehow, which is reminiscent of tweens and teenagers trying to show off how "cool" they are by pretending not to give a fuck about anything. In reality though emotions are an integral part of being human and being able to express them in a healthy way is a sign of immaturity.TLDR: Bottling up your emotions and trying to pretend you're too cool to care about things is the behavoir of an insecure man-babby chuuni.
>>188267085How is Devilman shounen when it has such strong violence and more mature themes?
>>188266860>Enjoy being statistically the most successful of people and irresistible to women.Enjoy dying lonely failure, pawn.
>>188267141*and not being able to express them in a healthy way
>>188267017Ok so i finished the anime but i havent read the manga(dont even know which chapter i should read), but does chimera ant have consequencies on gon personality or does he just go back to being the happy go lucky kid he was before?

>>188267141>t. raised by single motherDid any of you have a father or any male role model worth a damn? Are you so used to being a bitch that you can't comprehend not being one?

>>188267406Says who? The reason Ted Bundy has that much body count was because women loved him so much. Even after he got caught people women were sending him love letters.2/10 for making me reply.

i finished 2011 hxh, should i watch 1999 hxh or the manga?
>>188261415Because the genre is plagued by bad writing and stories that are comically drawn out for financial interests. >H-How am I supposed to kill off a character or write any impactful events when that means I have to move the story forward and change something about the manga's creation?>It'll be much easier to do another beach episode and keep the character dynamics and locations the same!

>ConanThat was the one and only time Conan ever shed a tear on screen, and only because he thought the love of his life was dead. He's too tough to cry for just any old reason, so it's wrong to group him in with those other kids.

>>188261440>why cry when you can use that time to train
>>188267141Wow what a roundabout way to say “im a gigantic pussy”
>>188268090>>188268154Wrong. Women don't like sociopaths. They like the fantasy of sociopaths that they can change or "fix" by making them fall in love with them. Also the main reason for Ted Bundy's body count is that he was good at acting like a charming man who wasn't a sociopath. The reason why women sent him letters afterwards was the above reason though (i.e. they thought they could make him love them back).
>>188261415Muh toxic masculinity https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=RnOm86KLMng&time_continue=5

Why is the only time Midoriya doesn't cry is when he's literally ripping himself to shreds?
>>188270255Because he's do-M.
>>188261415Because Japan hasn't culturally surrendered to this childish idea that males should never cry
>>188261415Usually because the typical events of an average shonen anime are pretty fucked up
>>188261473because they aren't supposed to be relatable as a human and instead be a power fantasy to escape reality, more or less.
>>188262501>This is a huge problem for a mans mental health in the west.If you say so my guy. I think it's just your problem that you feel the need to cry over everything when crying solves nothing

>>188271581Naruto is 12. Luffy is 19 in that scene, I’ll give you that, but he’s an emotional guy all around. And he really doesn’t like having to fight his friends.
>>188266936Eren I guess?maybe not alignment though, since he was always a fucking psycho
>>188271667>Eren I guess?Eren didn't change, he is just doing what's necessary for his child, so that the kid can be free. We already know that this is his primary motivation because he is telling his kid "You are free now" on the very last panel of the manga.

Why do hate crying? Do you view crying has a weakness? Do you just bottle up your emotions and explode doing something you regret and pay the pice later like a real "man". So cool. You hurt a loved one. Wow you ended a friendship you got in trouble. Wow really manly. Why yes I do cry. How did you know?
>>188261415havent watched most of these at length, but naruto didnt actually cry that much. deku is probably an outlier, his entire character is just him being a baby for some reason
>>188275165This simp doesn’t get it
>>188287977could probably count the times he cries on one hand, and thats all when he's a little kid

>>188281277No, he wasn't crying. His eyes were sweating.
>>188270255Because when ge cries is either potrayed as a joke or something emotional gor him, like achieving something he would've never done before, but that's mostly early Deku, since he barely tears up after the sport festival
