I was watching a YouTube video by Sky Williams, (League of Legends content mostly) and he said something that I thought was clever and deserved a blog post about.
He said something along the lines of “life isn’t an anime, and if it were none of us would be the main character.” It’s not a profound statement, yet there is still something to it.
After having just finished Gurren Lagann it made me think, would I even be good enough for a support character like Leeron… honestly probably not. I think everyone who watches anime likes it since it’s a break from reality, and you think how cool it would be if our world was like that. I think that if our world was like Gurren Lagann, HunterXHunter, One Piece, ect… none of us would be the cool main character most of us couldn’t even be side characters. We would just end up being cannon fodder, or the innkeeper, or another unimportant individual.
Would I like to think I have what it takes to be the main character YES! I think we all think we can do it, but if it comes down to it would we just be hopeless?
