Everyone is going on about Zero Two, how about an Ichigo appreciation thread?!
Bumping this.Rip love for Ichigo.
That other thread about to 404 had some bullying and shit going on. I've never seen anything like it in /c/. Usually when a character's pictures are being dumped people leave all the drama and character bashing at the door and come in peacefully to share or save the imagesJust goes to show Franxxfags are something else

>>3102474It's because many people only like Ichigo ironically. When we do polls, she sometimes comes behind Miku or Kokoro, and 02 always dominates the polls (as in, she gets around 3 quarters of the votes). Many people viscerally hate Ichigo because a lot of the things that are wrong with FranXX revolve around her. Plus, she was a meme before the anime even started airing (because she looks like Cocona from Flip Flappers).
>>3102534I'd theorize the opposite : many people hate Ichigo ironically. Ichigo fans take the bait and get very vocal, that's why they appear more numerous than they really are.
A few screencaps from last ep.
>>3102534>It's because many people only like Ichigo ironicallyEven if this were true, and real Ichigofags are in the minority, why on earth would anyone come riding into /c/ to bash and bully the character where the few who do like her are sharing pictures?
>>3102534>>3102934This really isn't the right board for that. Could you move your discussion to /a/, please?
OP here.I am surprised to learn of such drama happening with Ichigo, and it saddens me to hear that people like her ironically.I genuinely feel like she is a great character, but is overshadowed due to the hype of Zero Two.I personally feel that she needs to be appreciated more, because FranXX wouldn't be the anime it is without Ichigo, she's strong, and cute, and she brings the team together. I think it's childish to hate a character for no clear reason, and bully people for liking said character. Ichigo has a story in her own, being the drama surrounding her, Goro, and Hiro. She deserves to be loved, and Goro does, but the feeling may not be mutual, she likes Hiro, but he's all about Zero Two, and like the fans, Hiro leaves her behind. I imagine she's heartbroken, and sad because of this, but puts on a brave face for Hiro, and supports him. This is great person I feel she is.I don't like Ichigo ironically, or to say "Oh, she's SO underrated." All the hate is unfounded to be honest. In fact, all of the characters in FranXX are good, but everyone obsesses over Zero Two, fixated on who she is rather than the stories going on a side from that.Sorry for that. I just wanted to say something about it to voice my opinion.
>>3103142She is just boring. Or rather Goro x Ichigo x Hiro is boring. You can say that Ichigo is trying hard or that Goro is best bro but it's just painful to watch.>cute boy MC with black hair and alien main girl with red hair who is slightly older basically get married in the first arc>MC's female childhood friend with short blue hair finally decides to make her move even though she realizes that she already lost>tall megane MC's male childhood friend loves the female childhood friend but knows that she wants strong and thick MC's dickThis is literally Ano Natsu. That's it, that's the whole show. It would be passable a decade ago but these days a lot of people would rather watch paint dry. Argentea, Genista and Chlorophytum pairs may be less likeable characters but as couples they are way more interesting and fun to watch.They didn't even design Ichigo as a cool beauty blue oni to 02's action girl red oni. Instead she is the most generic constipated childhood friend they could possibly come up with so you know exatcly how it's going to end even before watching. Only people who really like Ichigo and Goro would enjoy that, everyone else just wants the show to move on already.
>>3103142> FranXX wouldn't be the anime it is without IchigoYeah, it would be a much better anime without Ichigo.
>>3103202>Instead she is the most generic constipated childhood friend they could possibly come upYou could probably say every character in DitF is generic at this point with this kind of reasoning.Also, the constipated childhood friend archetype is my thing, thank you very much.
>>3103212I didn't say it's bad on its own, I used to like that sort of anime girls. I've said that due to her design it was obvious what kind of character she is and exactly what her arc will be about three months ago. Even that would be fine if it was just a background thing like with the rest of secondary characters but apparentely this exhausted love rectangle is more important than the show's plot or worldbuilding, it's tiresome.
>>3103212I'm not the guy who wrote >>3103196I don't really care about how "generic" the characters are. Ichigo is a bad character because she constantly retards the character dynamic in the anime. She drags those around her down, always returning things to square one. Ichigo is wishy-washy and confused while at the same time also prissy, which makes her come across as a bossy imbecile. If you go back and rewatch the episodes you'll see that Ichigo is something like a female combination of Mitsuru and Zorome: she talks big, has a stick stuck up her ass, but always fails and has her ass saved by someone else. Even this last episode she acted like a total cunt and was pretty reactive to things (recall that the one who came up with a rescue plan for Goro was 002). Ichigo reminds me of those incompetent middle-management types.
>>3103220>She drags those around her down, always returning things to square one.The love triangle, which anon notes >>3103218 being only the most salient aspect of that. She does it with every character though. She's like a homeostatic force in the anime, keeping things from developing further. Even a shy girl like Kokoro shows more agency than Ichigo, who seems to be constantly reacting to things.
>>3103224Forgot image: Ichigo the cunt.
Basically, Ichigo is someone I love to hate. She's extremely easy to dislike, and shitting on her feels good. That's why "bullying" her is so popular.
>anon did deliver
>>3103617Tbh I got way too much shit here to dumpMight just toss it all in a zip and put it on MEGA
>>3103621Just post a handful pretty pictures once in a while.
>>3103628eh, too lazyhttps://mega.nz/#!OgYFCRTA!KSoK11eDEcIlSYLA-uL1tVsvRN6b6LHCqlF8UuW0C2YHere's all my shit, its still largely unorganized but whatever
they're both overrated. watch better anime, cunts.
>>3104572You're the only cunt I see here
>>3102474Reifags are similar to 002fags though.here's my theory: since franxx is basically a ripoff of evangelion it gets a lot of the same fan base, and the most popular (and worst) girl (rei for eva, 002 for franxx) will always have the most toxic and shittiest fanbase who just mindlessly hate on the second most popular (and best) girl (asuka for eva and ichigo for franxx), because 2DEEP4U mechashit like this is filled to the brim with 14 year olds with god awful taste in women
>>3104580I hate to give credence to your theory but I am a Reifag who likes 002. Ichigo isn't like Asuka though. Miku is most like her.
>>3104593>>3104580Also, Rei and 002 are the best girls. But I understand why you'd think otherwise: you're retarded. I mean, you can't even tell that Ichigo is nothing like Shitsuka.
>Eva shitposting on Ichigo's /c/ thread
>>3105468Wrong thread anon.
>>3105497B-but /a/ isn't working.
B/a/BY COME BACK
>>3105580/a/ is back now, no more excuses.
A few good ones from the /a/ thread.
Don't let her die.
>>3115455i've cut out the unecessary parts
>>3115459Well done anon.
>>3103635You made my day. My week. My life.I love you.
>>3102474I love to buli Ichigo something fierce but it's because I secretly love both her, and cruelty to anime girls. She should be spared here in her own threads where the intent is, by definition, to have cute things. So if I find myself bullying her, I will make sure it's cute and not evil. So here is a picture of my favorite cute but useful Strawberry reaction.
>>3118521>>3118522>>3118523These are really good, I'd like to see more if you can.
>>3118536They are from a drawfag who posted them on /a/ after some people sniped at him for hating Ichigo.He denied and posted those as a proof.
Best character design of any girl in the show.
Nice thread, I really (and unironically) like Ichigo the most.
Please keep your waifu war on /a/, onifags.
>>3127066Tell me about it.
>>3127156She did nothing wrong.
>>3127219This. Hiro's simply a retard for allowing himself to be fooled by that evil whore 02's facade.
