I don't even know HOW you'd write a character to be more of a Mary Sue than Rimuru Tempest.
as for your question, i don't rimuru is doing much since clayman. now they're entering the 'developing a base' stage of isekai.
>13337 The internet has spoken, Rimuru confirmed for the one true elite mary sue.
Yeah, the story is in a pretty passive stage. LN volumes 8-12 are like that. Anime covers the first 6 LN volumes. Manga covers the first 7, and has started on 8. But from volume 13 onwards there's tonnes of fighting, and the powerscaling gets absolutely wild.
The truth I've come to learn is that people don't actually care as much about Sues a they pretend to. As long as the character appeals massively to many in som way, either via coolness, cuteness, sexiness, classiness or all of the above, they will completely disregard all else as they're already satisfied. It's not a problem becaue it's not getting in the way of their fun and enjoyment. in fact, it's enhancing it.
>Still afraid of Guy and Guy still pushes him around even when he quadruples him in power-levels and gets the best skills He is such a pushover. He should let himself be rammed by Guy and Veldora already.
>that time I got reincarnated as a slime but almost immediately gained the ability to spend as much time as I want in the shape of a human, so becoming a slime might as well have not happened
idk the fucking gigafaggot protag of death march is pretty fucking awful too.
Honestly my biggest problem with Rimuru as a character is how inconsistent his character is. WN: It's impossible to tell what the author was going for. LN: He feels unrealistically cynical and sociopathic about everything, and there's little thought put into character development. Manga: A very well-rounded depiction of him, IMO the manga version of Rimuru is the best one in the main series. Anime: Based on the manga version of Rimuru, but feels kinda dull in comparison. Diaries (spinoff): He feels like a middle-aged guy enjoying a fresh start in life but also dealing with some emotional baggage. This spinoff knew what depiction of Rimuru it was going for and nailed it perfectly.
The problem with his character being inconsistent is that he doesn't get as much character development as he should, since the manga is based on the LN but the LN version of Rimuru is very different and didn't really get any character development. Since Diaries is a spinoff and comes up with scenes from scratch, it actually put thought into Rimuru's character development, and did it well.
>He >genderless Imagine being such a retarded tranny that you can't even go a single sentence without contradicting yourself.
Who cares nigga he is cute
His thought patterns are that of a man, he thinks himself of a man, and asks everyone to address him as a man. So he can't be a 'she' in the tranny pronoun theory. His looks are androgenic by default (being more feminine or masculine requires the black mist) and he doesn't have any genitalia at all, so physically he is genderless. His species just reproduce by asexually splitting.
>androgenic It's androgynous you retard, and that's just a pathetic tranny cope they have obviously drawn a girl.
>androgenic Androgenic means "man creating" Androgens are a class of chemical compounds which engender masculinity. The term you're looking for is androgynous. Andro- man Gyn- woman Gen- create
Why does a guy having a cute face makes you seethe so hard? Some insecurities you wanna share with the rest of us, user?
