Am I the only one that finds most of the characters in Attack on Titan unlikable

Like, they all seem like vivid archetypes of characters as opposed to actual ones, and their actions make them hard to like, for the most part.

That's not to say that some of them don't have their moments, but most of them are completely unlikable in every way, shape, and form, and if they died I probably wouldn't care.

Except for Pixis. That guy was straight up ballin.

I don't actively dislike any of them, like I do the casts of some other shows (*coughSTEINS;GATEcough*), but I don't really like any of them, either.

No, I dislike the majority of the cast aside from Jean, Annie and a maybe one other person.

Same here, didn't hate or like any of them.

It's probably because most of them haven't had much screentime yet. Like Reiner and that guy he's always with. Other than the main trio, the side cast haven't really done much to set them apart as interesting characters (besides Jean).

I'd say characters is the shows weakest point.

The only characters that are truly likable IMO are Mikasa and that scientist chick. Everyone else seems to be made in the interest of getting that person to be admired as a badass or hated.

Like Levi. It's obvious that the series wants to paint him as a super badass and compassionate to his men, but all I see is someone marinading in his own hubris, smacking Eren around because he can.

I'd get started on Eren, but for some reason people seem to like him a lot so I rather not.

Jean is cool though, pretty down to earth considering all that's happening.

He only did that once, and that was to prove to the people gathered at the trial that he could handle the supposedly dangerous Titan shifter kid. How that seems like "marinading in his own hubris" to you is beyond me.

But lol at saying the characters are unlikeable and one note (Not that I'm necessarily disagreeing with you here) and then saying that you like Mikasa who is quite literally the most boring character in the series. She's nothing more than a waifu very poorly masquerading as a "strong female character".

Welcome to GameFAQs, where having an opinion is blasphemous.

I don't think the characters are all that bad but they're definitely not the strongest point of the show, IMO.

Yeah I agree about Jean. I also like Levi even though I recognize that he's pretty much just supposed to be "the badass".
