I've never really been one of those fans, so I'm pretty apathetic towards this whole thing. Fuck me, right?

Anyways, I'm glad to see that the Red fanboys are crawling out of the woodworks. Yeah, yeah, we get it. Red's a better character than Ash. Not a very hard thing to be, if you ask me.

And so what if Red isn't the black-haired, godlike Mary Sue depicted in Pixiv fanart? He feels more human and less detached this way. I mean, it's OK to idealize your characters sometimes, but don't expect the idealized versions to make good or relatable characters. They're paragons, and paragons always have this air of magnificence that separates them from us. I for one welcome a new, human depiction of Red.

...I don't even like Red all that much.

    What does Red's hair have to do with feeling more human?

    I agree with you, I was never one of those Red worshippers, while I definitely prefer him over Ash in almost every single aspect, I was never into people portraying him in the way that you stated.

    The Anime can use an Eye-candy !
    May be they can bring Blue with Venusaur .
    I would like to see Blue as Red & Green's childhood friend & also their crush .
    That would hit up the rivalry .
    Also , If Pokemon trainers can't use more then one Pokemon that this show will be Dead before its debut .
