Wouldn't it be nice to have someone in life that was always cheering you on? No matter what you were doing, this person would always give you the confidence that you need to get through all sorts of situations. We all have friends that like to help us out and enjoy seeing what great things we do, but I don't think anyone really has that amount of excitement that anime characters do.
As you can see, I'm not really talking about a cheerleader in a traditional sense. I think we've all seen anime where one character in the main group is extremely enthusiastic. They're always yelling and saying positive things, trying to push their friends into all sorts of crazy situations. Those characters always believe in their friends and know that they'll come out on top. Having someone at your back like that 24 hours a day would be pretty nice!
Thinking about those anime character types blending into real life makes for some pretty interesting situations. Obviously there are times when anime characters act just like regular people, and in some anime they actual normal the entire time. Then there are other times when anime characters are hugely over the top, and you'ld never see people act like that in real life. Taking personality types to the extreme is an anime staple!
If you could take an anime character type and translate it into real life, what one would you pick? The strong, silent guy, the comedian that's always yelling? Let us know your top pick!
