Oh, D_G, why don't you admit you like Char already. I know you play SRW on your Red Comet GBA. Join us in our Char-fanboyism, it'll make you 3x cooler. ^_^Destiny_Gundam wrote:Yeah, that's right. No Char. I don't like him too much for the same reasons Kishiria stated. When I only knew him from First Gundam and CCA, I thought he was a pretty cool guy. But then I saw Zeta and I was all "Wait, why is Char being all nice now? What the hell? Why is he knocking back drinks with Amuro?"
On a similar note, what was with that obviously Canadian movie clip at the very end?
Unless Neo Beat me to this, it's from the classic movie "Strange Brew" featuring Bob and Doug, the Brothers Mackenzie. Model Canadians and according to the album, "Deltron 3030", they were "two latter-day Renaissance men. Or, to use the correct Twentieth-Century terminology...Hosers."
Should be required viewing in every Canadian school.
The instrumental for "Return" by Self Scientific. Hope that helps, man. Can't believe that I didn't use that one sooner. ^_^hotlimit wrote:What is the song at 1:20:05!? I've been killing my brain over trying to remember.
You raise a great point. Personally, I went with the antagonists whose exploits I enjoyed watching. Katejina was one I grew to hate, but since she developed from spoiled girl who Uso had a crush on to, to maniacal diabolical chick who became one of his greatest adversary, she developed into one of the most interesting people in the V-Gundam universe. A person that I just couldn't take my eyes off of throughout the course of that show.Vent Noir wrote:On villains... it seems like there are two broad categories of villains.
On one hand, there are the cool/sympathetic villains - the ones like Char that the audience can get into, and therefore can develop a fan following.
But closer to the traditional definition of a villain are the ones that the audience isn't supposed to like - the ones that are there for the audience to hate, and cheer when the hero kicks their arse.
I guess I simplify it to who I found the most entertaining, likable and interesting vs. the ones that fell totally short, in my opinion. I dig your insight, though, on the matter.
The day we get a panel at Comic-con, Kishiria, I'm saving a seat just for you ^_^Kishiria wrote:I had a moment of disappointment when I realized that Megazonecon or whatever it is will be in Orange County, FLORIDA, not Orange County CALIFORNIA.
Segueing into Char, he's one of my least-favourite character in all of Gundam. Sure, he's stylish, but his ideas of what he stands for keep swinging around insanely. First he's out to avenge his father, then he loses interest in that more or less and only kills my girl Kishiria because it's convenient to do so. Then he joins AEUG, then he wants to free Earth, then he wants to destroy Earth--WHAT DO YOU WANT, CHAR AZNABLE??????
As for your words on Char, they cut me to the core. ~_~
I can see what you mean over the run of his character's history, but I still think he's awesome, especially since he's flawed. His run was a roller-coaster ride, and I enjoyed all of it.
