    Now you know where Guilty Crown's writers got their stuff from.

    I think Cena's feud with Kane is supposed to rebuild all of the likability he's lost with the fans over the years. Except Kane is a fan favorite (I assume) thus incapacitating Ryder would be no different from getting revenge on Mark Henry (which he should have done). But in regards to becoming a laughingstock though, how did his US Championship match with Ziggler end (haven't seen)? Because depending on how that turned out I can sort of see Zack's downfall as something feasible without Cena carrying him. But yeah, the Rise Above Hate VS Embrace the Hate thing doesn't seem to be working too well.

    Huh. I actually like Dolph and Vickie for how irritating they are and how much luck Zig has on his side. Also, Jack who? I dun remember...

    And yeah, kind of what I meant by Orton one-upping Christian. With Randy being the Smackdown equivalent of Cena it's probably not a good thing that I wasn't surprised at him winning the WHC (again). Except people still cheer Orton because everyone loves an anti-hero and shyte.

    Inori voters vote with zero hands. They vote with their downstairs departments.
    Also, pay up.

    lol you think Shana can win.

    That simply won't happen. Last year was the last chance and it blew by like none other. Then again, I don't have a grudge against Shana-- merely her crappy copies.

    Too bad there is no worst character category for those AS awards anymore, because Guilty Crown is an easy producer of those.

    That many moe fans find sad, emotionally surpressed girls deeply moving has been known since Evangelion. It's not uncommon for such characters to be portrayed as a) abused (deliberately or not - Kanade comes to mind) and/or b) sympathetic. Frequently, it's implied that they've been conditioned to accept it as a normal - see Iriya Kana and Amamiya Yuuko for example (though Kana is a subversion since she's isn't as complaint as she initially appears).

    All of this influences their position on these sorts of characters. These people are not going to hold Inori's acceptance of Gai's treatment against her, and she evokes the same sympathy and goodwill as her predecessors.

    For reference, I think Gai's treatment of Inori is shoddy writing - IMO she's the only character he treats that badly, and the blatant contrast with how much better he treats Ayase is an obvious attempt to play on people's perception of characters like Inori as abused and sympathetic. It apparently works though.

    Lavie + ~2 years, assuming I have my timeline right. The vast majority of this week's episode is a recap using footage from season one (including the original OP) but there's a very brief new scene of her and Claus at the end.

    Pretty sure they'll be playing some role in the last six episodes then, although I'm not sure what that will be and how much they'll show up.

    Edit: will respond to other query later.

    On a positive note, love your recent votes. Lots of overlap between the two of us there.

    I'm not saying that I personally am a huge fan of Inori. Of the GC girls, I liked Hare a lot more myself. Of all 2011 anime girls, Inori would be a fair ways down for me, below most of the Steins;Gate, Madoka Magica, Penguin Drum, and Hanasaku Iroha girls (amongst some others).

    It's just that Inori's personality is similar to NGE's Rei, which I've noticed is a popular personality type for a lot of ISML voters. Two of the three criticisms you applied to Inori can apply to Rei if you consider Gendo Ikari a "complete dirtbag" (as many people do, lol).

    I will admit that I did vote for Inori in one arena because I wasn't a big fan of most of her competitors, and yeah, I love her character design. Sorry, but that is a legit factor, LS.

    I'm not too sure how Anderson winning over the crowd is any accomplishment when BR drew the audience's heat toward him in the promo before the match, unless of course everyone was happy to boo him for doing his job correctly unlike Cena who gets a negative reaction for reasons unrelated to the story...

    There might be some recency bias at work here, but my take on D-Bri and Ziggler is the opposite although more for their gimmicks than anything else. I can't tell if Daniel is supposed to be a really extreme face or if he's supposed to be the WWE's attempt at a sympathetic heel with the whole AJ angle. The next solution for his classification would be tweener but between him and Micheal Cole, the latter definitely being the "heel" commentator, I can't tell who's drawing more heat from the audience. Ziggler OTOH looks pretty clear-cut in regards to what he's advertised to be and sells as more "active" than Brian even when the latter was still an obvious face.

    Similarly the Orton-Christian feud didn't have me at all for what they did rather than how they did it. It basically consisted of Randy one-upping him at every turn and being the face of Smackdown it just became predictable in a bad way. Likewise Orton becoming the punching bag for Mark Henry had a related problem, but at least it was semi-believable with one of them being the WSM. Big Show and Mark had to be my favorite feud of 2011 just for the big man VS big man appeal and for how neither combatant seemed to control the entire situation.

    I didn't get an infraction in F/Z thread~ It was in the sales one. Let's just say I was just being dumb.

    I think P4 is lower on average than IS was, hopefully F/Z will do better. We'll see the numbers soon!
