In section 2, you misspelled "strength" as "strenght" - other than that nitpick, very insightful!

To me, background characters are there to give impression of life outside the circle of main characters. They are generally bland in comparison to important characters (to make them stand out for the reasons you mentioned), but they are main characters of their own life, it's just that the author has chosen not to follow their lives in favor of the main characters. They live in the world you create and keep it running behind the scenes. I really enjoy those moments in manga and anime where some unimportant characters are simply doing their work or interacting while the main characters do their own thing.

I agree with you. Although I used to distinguish second plan characters and bg characters. Bg characters in anime series are usually not moving in the background, and are really dull. Secondary character (supporting character) are very often my favourites :) and very often they die :) to show the seriousness of situation :) Im in eternal grief :)

Aah right, you categorize even the secondary characters. Indeed, those background characters are just expendables :D

Oh. Just saw this com. So, you distinguish second plan characters and bg characters. OK. But the way u try to do it (visualy) is not valid. Its only story driven and depends of plot.

I don't like it and think you are wrong. You don't understand "cause and consequence" laws. Read more manga.
About your example - lots of ppl in internet like grannies. For me - both the emo girl and granny are secondary characters because they are out of context. Looks like you think a guy without a muscles is an empty spot, a sore loser, and can't be king of life. he he

In Japanese culture the secondary characters for their comics and animation tend to be bland as Precia-T is describing here and in some series are even entirely faceless.  In the animation industry, huge companies like Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, etc. generally follow the same formula of having unique main characters and generic, "normal" secondary characters.  There are a few exceptions to the rule, but they are simply exceptions. :)  The same can be said for people that wind up liking secondary characters instead of the main because personal taste will vary, but they are still an exception.  You even see this technique in live action, especially in the superhero movies.  It's a technique used to draw more attention to main characters by way of emphasizing the traits of the main and deemphasizing the traits of everyone else.

With that said, I do believe you can have a fantastic series that breaks the rules here.  One Punch Man totally plays with the tropes thanks to Saitama! :)

Hm. When I say "I think you are wrong" thats not just imho. Its almost always are fact. It means you have to rethink your way of creating secondary characters. And futhermore teaching other pips repeat your mistakes. That did you draw is not background characters.

 I am aware of what I am teaching. If you don't like it - I can't help it. 
I 'rethink' things and accept 'you have to' phase only from authorities. Don't get me wrong, but you are not one of them.  Authorities and teachers are people I choose my own. So as people around choose wether they want to learn from me, you or anybody else. I don't force anyone to follow my advices. 
You have your own idea - that's great, means you love what you do and you are devoted to it. All I can say is to wish you that your own philosophy brings you a lot of success.

Then choose those "authorities" and learn from them. Why create tutorials that is false.
