I give up.

Seriously. I can't be the only person on earth who can't read about characters that are all, without exception, complete assholes. To the bone.

Authors, here's a tip: when you write a character, imagine yourself on a road trip in a van with that character for 3 days. If you are ready for that character to choke on his or her own liver by the end of that trip, that person SHOULD NOT BE YOUR MAIN CHARACTER.

As a reader, I pray you to remember that rule.

That is all.

Well, I wasn't talking about Japanese fiction specifically, but if the geta fits...
