I understand how hard it is to let go a character you had for 25 years. Especially when said character is really important to your childhoodI really don’t understand some Ash fans. Of course, I lost interest in Ash long ago so I don’t understand Ash fans at all, but it’s for the exact reason a lot of Ash fans say the only reason they’re still watching the anime for. You sticking around to watch the anime to watch Ash progress go nowhere? To see his personality be so flat & boring? To see him do the same thing for the billionth time? You’re saying your fine with him failing, as long as he stays as main character & promotes the games? Doesn’t really sound like you care for Ash imo. It’s not that I hate or even dislike Ash. I’m really just tired of Ash going nowhere with his goal & character stale because I used to be so invested in him when I was younger. We can see that by BW, a new character was needed instead of Ash, but sadly…
I watched starting from OS, but it sure as hell ain’t for Ash. He’s the character I’m least interested in each series starting DP, as at least other characters aren’t likely to be as stuck in a rut like Ash was & would usually give us a new personalities & backstories from them. I’m keeping my expectations low for how JN was written and Riko/Roy could just be Ash 2.0, but there is a part of me that is interested to see them FINALLY pull the plug for Ash & let new characters take hold of the MC spot.
well, I first watched back in 2006 when the CN in my country replayed OS soo where does that make me in the genwunner spectrum?
Why do you need an excuse to watch a cartoon? Why not just watch it because you want to....Definitely leaving. I don't see any point of 25 year old adult watching anime for kids without any excuse now. At least up until this point I had 6 excuses: Ash, Pikachu, TR that I grew up with. Now I don't have any excuse so it's pretty cringe to watch it specially since we "have to" bond with new characters. Sorry but no, I value my time.
