Anon's an overrated character that people are attached to for petty reasons. As explained in the thread that birthed RfO, anything that isn't AnonxPone = CUCK to the morons. Not that I'm saying AST Twi and Anon should be broken up, but there's NOTHING to get us invested in it aside from "ME, PERSONALLY, I am Anon and I am with the waifu".
I'm 100% willing to bet that, if Anon from RfO had a redemption arc, people would be "OH ANON SO GOOD YES YOU CAME TO THE LIGHT GET DAT PURPLE PUSSY MAKE HER HAPPY"
AST Anon is barely a character. His defining characteristics are "good at math" and "likes Twilight".
It's like that Red Letter Media Plinkett review of the Star Wars prequels. Describe the characters from the original. Easy. That's like everyone else in AST.
Now describe the prequel characters. You can't say much because everyone is barely a character. That's Anon.
It's not AST's fault. SciTwi and Anon Anon was barely a character, just another "stranger in a strange land" guy. DMT Anon almost has a character, sort of a Spike type. MUPPET Anon we haven't seen enough, but I worry he's another no-character the fact that he's supposed to just be some guy and helped Twilight with crazy assassin shit was weird to me
The Anons that do have character? R9K Anon is one everyone hates because he's "just a retarded dudebro", but he's not very different from Dash at all. RfO Anon also has a character.
Hell, Donaldlight Anon is probably the Anon with the most character (Not best, but just the firmest), and his character is "Super Ultra Beta Cuck"
