I do like the "Tales of" series but I feel the Yuri Lowell is overrated. Senel Coolidge is my favorite. ---
No he isn't. Yuri is a genuine good protagonist, who stands out because he is not a generic, optimistic, i want to save the world kind of hero, and he's badass at that, as opposed to other common main characters in tales series. Senel is alright, also a good character. I prefer Luke in terms of character development, but ultimately best MC for Tales series is still Yuri in my opinion.
Well that is all fine and dandy but in my opinion I think he's w*nked by the fanbase. He is awesome but I still think people exaggerate his cool factor. He has his own sort of charisma and I admire that but I don't like him being portrayed as perfect (Not exactly a Stu) and to me personally he was a bit hypocritical.
At the end of the day, neither one of us will change our opinions on him lol. So lets agree to disagree.
