    I studied a lot of Japanese literature back in undergrad and I’ve done some recent research on pre-historic, historic, and modern Japanese fiction quite extensively but I just don’t see how characters like Hikaru Genji, Miyamoto Musashi, and Son Goku can even compare to Roronoa Zoro.

    Obviously, Japanese fiction is still relatively young, so Zoro hasn’t quite reached the level of the fiction greats such as Jay Gatsby and Superman, but I think it just goes to show how much we take for granted.

    The crazy part is that Zoro’s story isn’t even finished. Who knows. Maybe a decade from now we will be comparing Zoro to characters in Greek mythology.

    What do you think?

    I feel like Sakata Gintoki is better then Zoro in every way and still wouldn't claim he is one of the greatest in Japanese fiction.

    Certainly in One Piece.
    Kakashi's the best character out of the former HST, though.

    Fuck no.
    He is awesome no doubt but the greatest nah. Edward Elric, Goku, Hiei, Lelouch vi Britannia are some of the greatest.

    Just watched an episode of the Simpsons. Why does the main character of one of the best television series ever dress as Zoro and not as Goku, etc.? Does this confirm that Roronoa Zoro is in fact, the greatest character in japanese fiction? I'd say yes.

    I consider myself to be a pretty cultured and adept manga consumer. Which ones are you referring to?
