“Relatable” and “Ideal” are not the same. For me, anyway.
Ideal Character: L Lawliet
L is the best detective in the world. He has “rivals” (detectives) but they are actually all him. He created those fake identities. Near, Matt, and Mello are geniuses as well, but they can only surpass L if they work together. L is one of a kind. You can’t find anyone else in the world like him.
Relatable Character: Touta Matsuda
While I wish I was a master detective like L, sadly I am just an ordinary human being. Matsuda is an ordinary character. He’s a police rookie but he has good morals. He’s the youngest and most inexperienced one on the team but he’s good to have around. Matsuda is a little clumsy but he can be useful sometimes.
The ordinariness is killing me. I hate it.
I wrote a post titled, “Ordinary Person.” It talks more about this topic. You can read it here.
