I was just imagining everyone dying back when they were planning on attacking the titans simultaneously. Then those three would be like "Welp, guess it's safe to transform now lmao"
“Ah man, I’ve really treasured this time I spent these past few months with the friends I’ve made.”
“Yo, that wall that wall gotta go down tomorrow. Most likely more than half of them will die in the ensuing battle.”
“...Aight. Let’s do this shit!”

Sidenote, it only really been a couple months since they graduated(in the anime). Christ anime time.
 
She is a refreshing shonen protagonist with Ray and Norman for a reason.

Wish we had more female characters like her.
Save 'em all Emma is infuriating and annoying and not refreshing at all. She's no different than luffy or Yuu (owari no serafu) or Eren just with the many things that made them unique, fun, and compelling extracted and the empty shell that remained emodeled into a dull version of themselves.

Her addition of emotion and unrealistic optimism is a distraction which hurts the story. If she were rethought and redesigned to being more reserved, mellow, then she could be alright.

I know I said I’d never bother talking about Emma with you again but I guess I just can’t help myself. It’s Funny how you take issue with Emma being optimistic and yet stan super duper hard for Asta who’s also very optimistic and don’t ever criticize him for it. Me thinks that the reason for this is because you are just a sexist pile of shit that happens to resemble a human being. Because I fucking guarantee that if Asta was a girl a lot of the stuff you previously praised him for would instead be criticisms. You are so damn transparent you sexist wanker.

Asta is totally different and has things going for him that makes him charming and easy to cheer for. Hes been cheated at life in so many ways, his disability for one that makes him work harder than anyone else yet still makes him incapable of the basic things magic users can do, grew up orphaned and in poverty, isnt that smart, and is reckless to the point he'd probably kill himself while trying to go beyond his limits. He also has to battle the constant sadness that is always lurking there in his mind that brought him at times close to giving up.

It's not sexist to dislike Emma when there are valid reasons why her character just doesnt work. Compared to Asta, Emma is like top of the list for the greatest in the series in terms of smartness, physical performance, and the cards she was dealt in life such as being blessed with everything, and written in a way that makes her outshine everyone. She essentially has no flaws. She knows or hasn't been through any sort of adversity unlike Asta. It's impossible to cheer for someone like her when theres nothing there to relate with. And this raised in a perfect environment gives her a view and mentality that is just terribly unrealistic and zany to believe and unrelatable.

Other femchars in the series are satisfactory and at times worth commending.

DTL with the nuclear hot takes i see,

Emma's super empathetic and emotional character is actually portrayed as both her biggest strength and biggest weakness, but of course DTL wouldn't tell you that.

I also like how DTL says that Emma isn't very good, but praises Sakura as one of the best shonen heroines. Could it be because she only exists for Sasuke? Maybe I dunno.

Alluka is so fucking adorable I love her
It is kind of amazing Togashi created two cinnamon rolls back to back. It also shows how starved shonen series of good female characters. Emma and Alluka are breaths of fresh air.

I am avoiding DTL's comments for obvious reasons but in most part because it is difficult to discuss Emma as a character after just two episodes of the series. Even so you can see her motives and how she is smart about drawing information from Mom as Mom watches her like a hawk. Yes she wears her heart on her sleeve but it doesn't make her an idiot. Seeing how that dynamic plays out as the series goes on is a big part of the enjoyment of TPN.

I want to talk more about both characters but seeing as HUGE SPOILERS are required to talk about both I am waiting until the conclusion of both series to discuss them. Lucky for us both series end nearly back to back. *Winks not so subtly at Grexeno*

I dont know much about emma since it's only been 2 episodes but I did do a double take when someone said she was refreshing after emma says she wanted to save all 30 something kids while also not knowing what's on the outside of the walls. That's shonen protagonist 101
