Two things I've noticed about Japanese anime:

On the one, we have an highly emphasized theme of "perseverance" through adversity by desire and willpower.

Then, on the other, we have shit like pic related. A distinct sense of helplessness and defeatism, with an underlying sense of a form of psychological self preservation.

Discuss.

Because it's character development after he stops saying "it can't be helped, it's useless" to "hell yeah we can do this, power of friendship, I believe in myself".

The Japanese are hopelessly Romantic.

They emphasize the emotional struggle of the individual in face of hardship and obstacles, and how that individual overcomes it.

It really does not matter what the character is feeling exactly, as long as it fits the mood and is cathartic.

OBVIOUSRY the defeatism is a reaction to the subversion of their initial standards of perseverance. They're taught that they can only get what they want via hard work. But sometimes hardwork and willpower is all for nothing because reality is nonconsensual, and then their entire viewpoint collapses into defeatism. You can work hard and want hard and still get nothing in return.
