He is rather plain, and that might be bad in any other setting, but he actually ends up being distinct on account of how weird everyone else around him is. He's a stabilizing element.

A grey ball might not stand out in a pit of grey balls, but a grey ball definitely stands out in a pit of colorful balls. If that makes sense.

Very well put. I agree completely here - and I honestly quite enjoyed him as a character anyway.

I know why he's plain, it's because he's the main character and MCs need to be relatable. But I don't care for him.

He's plain because he's supposed to be the stereotypical anime protagonist, where the "normal, run-of-the-mill" kid gets thrown into a contrived plot.

Makoto does have a purpose bringing "normalcy" to the eccentric personalities around him, but he's still a boring character.

One could actually make the argument that Makoto (in almost every aspect) is a reflection of the gamer.

Uhh... Naegi isn't really 'normal'. He's more normal than the others, sure, but he still has his crazy spin to him based on his talent just like everyone else does.

He's far more optimistic and trusting than most normal people would be, and he legitimately does have really good luck. Or well, the correct name for his talent is technically supposed to be something around the lines of Ultimate Lucky Student (Unlucky Student?) because of his bad luck that leads to good luck. He's really not much of a player avatar nor is he supposed to represent the player, he legitimately is his own character. He's just one of the more sane and down to earth characters, so he's better suited for the protagonist.

I had only read the first chapter of DR2 at the time and I thought Hinata was miles better than Naegi.

As Lopez said, he's just boring. I understand the point of it, but that didn't stop me from finding him boring.

Remember guys, "boring" is kind of subjective here. One man's boring is another man's nonstop entertainment or something, for instance.

We're obviously talking about opinions, so it's fine if people disagree/agree with someone else's view.

The point is that Makoto stands out by being plain in a batch of eccentric things. Nothing wrong with that, it's just that some of us don't like him because he's so bland.

i'm not trying to come off as piggybacking off of your post but these are all basically the same opinions that i have except i think akane is just a bit better than ibuki and i think sayaka was worse than toko because her stuttering never really got on my nerves and
Spoiler:
i think that naegi forgiving sayaka betrayal is complete bs however this might be slightly biased of me only because there's no way i would forgive her for that. I also don't think sayaka gets enough character development but thats mostly because she was the first to get axed and wasn't the main villain's twin sister.
