The mask. Without that is Sasuke.

DtB aired before people used the term edgy very often. It sort of became a meme a few years ago. Same thing with DEEP.

That and he's pretty emotionless and fairly stable, at least compared to the average angstlord 14 year old brat that is usually labeled edgy.

Isaac Jones
Isaac Jones

His girlfriend is blind.

No self respecting edgy man would date a blind girl.

Luke Phillips
Luke Phillips

Because everyone was a teenager back then so they thought he was cool and deep.

I mean he's not Kiritsugu tier but he's damn close.

Bentley Howard

It's old enough to have been spared

Angel Parker

this. Edgy teens are always like "DEATH, I DON'T CARE MOM, I AM THE DARKNESS".

He's just "whatever" and does what he can do. You don't see him bursting in angst.

Angel Nguyen
Angel Nguyen

NOW I'VE LOST IT is edgy enough that it makes everything else look relatively tame.

Brandon Diaz
Brandon Diaz

People who think edgy exists are far cringier then the underdeveloped who preach about darkness and death, just another joke term used by those without a sense of humour to fit in.

Noah Gonzalez
Noah Gonzalez

He came out before Edgy became a meme

Caleb Howard
Caleb Howard

Edgy teens are also like "whatever, I don't care about anything, I feel nothing, there is nothing but darkness in my soul"

Carson Ward
Carson Ward

That's a front that breaks the moment they get into shit. Hei is really just a siscon. That's it. Everything else as far as he is concerned isn't really worth caring about. Only his sister makes him alive.

Alexander Campbell
Alexander Campbell

You sure you don't got that confused with depression and low self-steem?

Hunter Robinson
Hunter Robinson

Because Hei isn't edgy, the whole show is him grieving for his sister and then season 2 is him having a mental breakdown and becoming a drunk to cope. Hei cares about things.

Eli Martinez

to be fair, everyone he smacked around was being a little shit.

Luke Russell
Luke Russell

While he is a hitman spy guy, he shows compassion for the people he is using at least and sometimes even helps them out. It's just the job comes first because the organization he works for has him by the balls.

He isn't really edgy.

Liam Price
Liam Price

Welp in Hei's case there wasn't even darkness in his soul, just general numbness and a very few soft spots.
He's just a very calm and collected character that doesn't go full Sasuke, and a pretty cool guy in general

Samuel Sanchez

So, he's the average Sup Forums user, he's probably reading this thread

Shouldn't S2 come before?

Anthony Gonzalez

The OVAs are considered S1.5

Evan Diaz

they even made a pretty good fake OP for s2

Jaxon Jones
Jaxon Jones

Because Hei is just a guy that wants to save his sister and just keep doing his own shit. He does't have retarded darkness shit going on and he keeps himself together for a very large part of the show, and the few times he does lose it he doesn't make a huge deal out of it and is pretty brief. He's pretty mature and cool, not edgy.

This reeks of moeshit. It's not DtB at all.

Hei feels super out of place in that opening.

Noah Gonzalez
Noah Gonzalez

Decent AMV you got there

Eli Hughes
Eli Hughes

Will Hei ever reach beyond the gate and make sweet electric love to his sister?

Jaxon Carter
Jaxon Carter

Thats the best part. Almost every scene with Hei is unintentional comedy because of how much he doesn't fit in with everything else.
It's the only way I could manage to sit through a rewatch of S2.

Daniel Flores
Daniel Flores

At least you are consistent. Are you the guy wasted his time to do a decent Keit-Ai opening?

Jose Adams

Sometimes I forget how great Hei was.

Brandon Thomas

Why did Suou fall in love with Hei when he beat her, drank constantly, and then abandoned her the moment other priorities came up?

Joseph Bennett

Jack Young

Some... bikini chicks.
Suddenly Hei appears out of nowhere looking edgy as fuck
A giant sniper rifle.

Holy shit this is garbage, who did this opening? Nothing matches

Kevin Robinson

Even though the second season was shit, I still enjoyed the degradation of Hei.

If I went from electric batman, to just some average joe, I would've probably killed myself.

Brandon Wright

If we took his mask off, would he die?

No, but you would.

Jose Flores

ok thanks for the nostalgia thread

Josiah Lopez
Josiah Lopez

He's fleshed out very well.

Most "edgy" characters are vacuous and myopic.

Too bad there was never a second season, I really enjoyed DtB.

Anthony Brown
Anthony Brown

I love how DtB has the vanillaest douijins, its like having a heart attack over and over.

So... Squall?

Jaxon Long
Jaxon Long

What makes him special that no one ever calls him edgy?
The fact that he's really a softie if you watch him even in the first arc of season 1.

Adam Diaz
Adam Diaz

Sasuke treated Sakura far worse throughout the entirety of Naruto and she still let him pump and dump her
Women are just weird.

Carter Perry

That actually sounds like a lot of real life relationships.

Chase Bennett

Easy. No one gives a fuck about that series any more.

Tyler Carter

sounds like an edgelord

s2 hei is an abusive drunkard

Julian Cook

s1 Hei is abusive and straightedge
s2 Hei is an abusive drunkard
Now that's character development.

Gabriel Richardson

edgy

Dominic Gonzalez
Dominic Gonzalez

It's because he's not actually all that edgy and his character is interesting

James Fisher
James Fisher

Threadly reminder that everybody but Sup Forums love edgy characters and that there's only jealous faggots who complain about them because they can't self insert.
They prefer pussy characters who cry their soul out like BnHA mc.

Isaiah Williams

Probably fresh and clean with a very minor scent of deodorant and sweat.

Generic edgy MCs are more entertaining than generic moralfag MCs. At least in shit shows, edgy MCs have a chance to turn the show into a trainwreck and make it fun to watch.

Pic somewhat related.

edgy characters in anime are literally plebshit written to appeal to underage kids. there's no such a thing as a good edgy character in chinese cartoons.

Brandon Cook
Brandon Cook

If Anonymous says so then I can only believe.

Angel Butler
Angel Butler

I did too. It was bad, but Yasushi's godly compositions and hobo Hei made up for it. I still rewatch the whole series from time to time.

Kayden Flores
Kayden Flores

Guts was only an edgelord at the beginning of berserk when he was barely a character. He hasn't been edgy in decades. He's a moralfag now.

Daniel Gomez
Daniel Gomez

Why does she acts like a woman?.

Carter Bailey
Carter Bailey

I do too. Despite loving season one, I was fine with a lot of the tings they changed between them like the tone, soundtrack composer, etc.

Robert Moore
Robert Moore

what's Sup Forums definition of an edgelord anyway.
You keep calling the buzzword but you never come up with the same meaning.

Ian Lewis
Ian Lewis

Now that you mention it, edgelord turned into a moralfag is basically the oldest trick in the book in order to turn a character into a fan favorite. It's cheap and it doesn't require any sort of particular talent as a writer to pull off and the masses love it.

Josiah Martinez
Josiah Martinez

but nobody like moralfags while everybody like edgelords

Josiah Garcia
Josiah Garcia

should i watch s2? or rather, how bad is it really? i really loved s1 and watched it in like a day, but I've only heard bad things about s2.

Gavin Brown
Gavin Brown

probably because writing a good moralfag requires more talent and you don't see that in this shitty industry.

Gabriel Adams
Gabriel Adams

What? Everybody likes edgelords turned into moralfags.

Hudson Rogers
Hudson Rogers

give me some exemple then because characters like sasuke, kaneki or vegeta always make the majority of the readers wet

Cooper Johnson
Cooper Johnson

If watch the OVAs in between them, then the second season will make a lot more sense. Memers will tell you the second season is bad because they watched it before the OVAs came out so I'd suggest you watch them and then form your own opinion on season two.

Asher Harris
Asher Harris

Who doesn't like Guts? Also, Sasuke is basically a moralfag now as far as I know. Same for Vegeta who had an edgy phase in the boo saga again, but was redeemed at the end. I wouldn't know about Kaneki since I haven't read Tokyo Ghoul. Redemption of the edgelord is what most of those readers seek.

Caleb Phillips
Caleb Phillips

thanks familia

Cameron Johnson
Cameron Johnson

Everybody says that it was better when guts was a lone wolf instead of a harem protag though

Landon Morales
Landon Morales

That probably has more to do with Miura losing the plot of his story than anything else. Regardless, Guts is still a fan favorite.

Austin Jackson

yeah no

Oliver Bennett
Oliver Bennett

He's so edgy that his edge has become a split personality

Luke Miller
Luke Miller

Sasuke is basically a moralfag now
He was edgy until like the last two chapters of the manga and was ridiculously popular for the entire run.

Caleb Sanders

Amber was so fucking good to Hei, he should slap himself for even thinking of smacking her around.

Michael Nelson
