Warning: Potential spoilers in an attempt to write an defense essay of this character.

I must disagree with Tuturuu,I don’t think she’s that bad either.

Obviously,Chiaki is a very popular character,but that in turn gained her many haters,and a good number of them tend to be very unfair to her.Of course,everyone is allowed to have their own opinions,but the reasonings behind their distaste of the said character seems very wrong to me.Let’s go.

One complaint I see about her fairly often is that she is supposedly “waifu bait”. She’s called this because she’s a cute gamer girl with big boobs who doesn’t do anything wrong. To that I say, are fictional girls not allowed to be cute, or enjoy video games, or have large breasts? Plenty of characters don’t do anything wrong so that complaint is entirely unfounded. It simply isn’t fair to claim that any character is “waifu bait” because every character is someone’s waifu (or husbando). If Chiaki was the “Ultimate Landscaper” or something similar but was otherwise unchanged, I have a feeling how people perceive her would change. The other major complaint is that she’s “too perfect”. In both DR2 and DR3 she was this amazing person who did nothing wrong. Which is exactly the point. Chiaki is a prime example of a literary mockingbird. If you never read To Kill a Mockingbird in high school this will take a little explaining. A major theme of To Kill a Mockingbird is innocence and purity (and just something being and bringing good things in general), and the destruction of whatever thing embodies these. These themes are embodied in the idea of a mockingbird, represented by this quote: "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." The idea is that a mockingbird within a story is a character who is pure or innocent, and brings only goodness to those around them. Chiaki fits this description perfectly, in both DR2 and DR3. In both she is a character whose purpose is to bring goodness to the characters around her. Also in both, she is killed, fairly brutally. She is a perfect example of a mockingbird. Her character is written so that she is a really good person on purpose. That’s why her death holds so much significance. It’s the destruction of something pure and good. Chiaki is an excellent written mockingbird, and that is what I think people who dislike her don’t understand.

However, this is mostly my opinion. It’s perfectly fine if you don’t like Chaiki. The point isn’t that you should like her, the point is that she is a good character and well written mockingbird. You could also disagree with that, but I also don’t really consider any character to be badly written, so whatever I say does carry that bias. In the end, this is for discussion, and I think discussion is a good thing.

I really wanted to like Chaki. Her design was gorgeous, her talent was great, she had the potential to be a really, really great character. I was extremely disappointed. She was bland, boring, perfect waifu-bait. She was smart, cute, and the main love interest! What's not to love? All of that. Her lack of flaws and anything remotely negative made her a horribly bland character that never had my interest. An obvious Mary Sue, nothing about her seemed special. Her personality was not notable at all compared to the eccentric, fun to watch characters like Gundham. She was a bland character, which is why I disliked her so much.

I hate how she became a Mary Sue in the anime

Still love her in the second game.

One of the best characters in the entire series.

Hate this shitty, bland, big-boobed, Mary Sue, dream girl, waifu bait with passion. One of the most boring characters I've ever seen in any forms of media, she almost ruined the second game for me and to this day I still don't know how they managed to make her even worse in the anime. It's really sad that she's the most popular character in the second game according to Reddit. I'm glad she's dead, at least.
