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.
