The Problem With Maiko by Booter-Freak The Problem With Maiko by Booter-Freak
A lot of Avatar fans have a rather intense dislike of Maiko...in fact, I don't think I've seen another couple take so much heat! So, using my patented Booter Logic, I decided to delve into the reasons WHY(constant face sucking aside). However, my logic must have had an off day, judging from the grade it got. :/

But ya gotta admit, guys who act like Mai DO get a love of love. Which is maybe why MAO is a good idea...[link]

Now, before you jump down my throat with Reasons Why Booter Is Wrong And Ignorant For Making This, let me just nip that in the bud. I am not promoting ANY sort of shipping, and this thing is a SPOOF. So if you're actually looking for a well-researched and thought out debate starter, look somewhere else.

Whew.

But don't cold attitude+sarcastic wit+cold exterior+girl also equal Toph? (At least in the beginning) Arguably the most popular Avatar character? The only reason Mai bugged me was that she didn't seem to have emotions, which is hard to relate to for me. (I don't like that archetype much in general.) What bugs me (but just a little) about Maiko is that they sometimes accentuate each other's flaws, instead of making each other better. I see what you mean about this, but at the same time, I want to point out some other things that could be involved in the Maiko hate dump.

Toph wasn't didn't have a cold, deadpan exterior or attitude at all, though. She was a rough-around-the-edges free spirit who goofed around with Aang and Sokka and even made frequent jokes about her own blindness.

How about we accept that the show made it that way

Actually I don't hate Mai, but I don't think that diagram was right. I don't think that is a gender problem. 
Hatori and Snape aren't the same. They actually are very different characters. Characters are more than just "sarcastic, cold, sour". In every character there are different shades and those made them like they are. Furthermore... Hatori, Snape, Zuko (and others)... they share a tragic past where Mai don't...

So, a tragic past change everything? Or are you saying that a tragic past excuse every flaw in a character?

I'm just saying that people love tragic characters...
Cold exterior is most tasteful when it is dressed with a tragic past. Many people LOATHED Snape before of the last book, however.
Look Homura Akemi (Madoka Magica)... she has sour attitude, cold exterior... and she is a fan favourite...
And Ren (Elemental Gerad)?
And Daria Morgendorffer? (she not even has a tragic past, and she is popular enough)
And Katniss Everdeen? (in a way)
Actually in the fictional universe there are MANY female characters sarcastic and cold, and they aren't all hated.
If Mai isn't popular, then:
a) Actually isn't because her attitude, but 'cause Zutara
b) In her specific case, that combination didn't turn out to be charming for most of people
Deal with it. It happens...

Lol! I'm pretty "meh" about Maiko. I just finished watching the show (yes I'm super late lol), and I'm a bit sad my ship Zutara did not sail, though I pretty much knew it wouldn't,  but Kataang is cute so I'm alright. Im just a show watcher so if there is a comic out there or something I have not read it yet and I do not know if they left things out but, although when we got the flashback of Mai when she had a clear crudh on Zuko and I found that cute, I was neverthless wary of the ship and disappointed (because zutara damnit) but mostly because zuko was my favoriteand I felt very protective of him. Because Mai was a friend of Azuul I worried she might betray him and hurt him further...but when she saved him from death, I decided that she was suitable for my Zuko. That being said, the ship is kinda cute, but I just feel meh about it because it just doesn't bring that jolt I crave in a pairing,  it's just okay to me.
