That was a great post. Good job. Yeah, I think that anime writers often take the easy way out by focusing on a *deeply* flawed character (spineless male lead wimp, incredibly harsh Type A tsundere) and then developing them... because there's nowhere for them to go but up.
It's trickier to take a character that starts only with relatively minor flaws, but you find a nuanced way of developing them anyway.
Since we haven't talked lately, I came across an interesting post in the HSI thread about our dear angry Minko, so I decided to post my own thoughts. I feel Minko is the epitome of the double edged sword of Okada's more extreme styles, so you might want to read.
lol, adopted. Though you guys really should have used PMs to hide this from me.
Anyhow, to adapt the title to me personally, we must factor in resentment against becoming a Puella Magi, Kamijou as a human being, and the fact that Sayaka's special moves looks like summoning an unlimited amount of blades...
