I connect with 2D characters more than I do with real people.
A perspective I don't usually think about, specifically.
Regarding Odd Taxi, which on the surface seems to satisfy this criteria but somehow manages to miss the mark every time. Walrus's backstory crammed in there at the end and he doesn't seem to exhibit much emotion about it. Puma (Tanaka) is insane over something trivial, making for unrealistic characterization. Llama, comedy duo, and idols are relatable, but are given fairly straightforward takes. Hippo, skunk, police, and monkey are dumbasses.
