Shounen Heroes, Self -Centered?

*re-reads last entry* Hmm, this probably explains why I get so easily addicted to shounen crack. I mean it, see, most -true- shounen heroes starts off not really knowing anything, but it's that inner fire to fullfill their dreams, their hopes that attract me to them. Their obnoxious self been a strangely appealing factor as well.

Lets just look at the storylines of my favourite shounen manga; YuYuHakusho, Houshin Engi, Hikaru no Go, HunterxHunter, Bleach, Shaman King, and recently Prince of Tennis (there are more I just can't remember them all). See the common link? It isn't hard, young boys becoming more and more powerful at their chosen sport/game/passion, they go through crap, the mature, yet they can still be a prat at times.

The main leads in the stories can also be considered extremely self-centered. *ducks the flying fruits* Seriously, I love them, but there's no fucking way that people can tell me the protagonists in their respective series are not selfish when it comes to fullfiling their dreams. They don't purposely hurt people, but they do it anyway, and most of them are aware of this, but, up to a point, they can't stop moving forward because of their dream, their ambition. They have to become stronger!

Hmm, that would explain Griffith *mumblestoself*
