Shinji Ikari (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Shinji Ikari may be the main character of Neon Genesis Evangelion, but a lot of people don’t actually like him. He’s whiny, wimpy, and cowardly. He just doesn't feel like a protagonist. He is the personification of the word loser.
Many people simply fail to notice his circumstances. Having had a difficult childhood, he became depressed and broken beyond repair. Because of this, people have come to subconsciously relate to him. It is even said that some fans hate Shinji only because they see themselves in him.
