Do you really dislike Vaan because he adds nothing to the story?
Or do you cringe at scenes like this where his friends basically treat Vaan like a lost puppy?
We cringe when we see Vaan. The cooler characters upstage him. Yet, he’s the flagship character.
Much of the time we project ourselves on the main character. We don’t want to do that with Vaan.
So if we project ourselves onto Vaan, do we cringe? Do we get slightly angry at his clueless buffoonery?
Or do you just not care?
