And as I continue to tell you, and without dragging this straight into Godwin territory, I can't. I cannot put myself mentally in Kira's shoes, because my mind can't fit into those strange bananas....

If I'm being asked to identify with him, then I have to. Identification is experiencing an empathetic reaction from an encounter or experience. At no point did I say "Kira can't be that confident". I...

If push-button technology resolves all of a story's serious conflicts, it basically erases any possible dramatic tension. Presumably, Kira's skill is involved in the process somewhere, or else the...

Which pre-supposes his success, which means he's either far more confident of his abilities than I ever could be or he's being incredibly flip with the safety of his allies. Either way, I can't...

I didn't watch all of Destiny, is that supposed to be their career total, or from a single battle? If it's the former, than it seems exceedingly low. If it's the latter, than I'd have to watch the...

I think it's fair to say that Kira completely carried the Archangel in combat, and the Archangel post Alaska is regularly forced to fight forces that outnumber by several magnitudes. I think it's...

I guess what I'm trying to say, in the context of the topic of this thread, is that I find the idea of being able to fight hundreds of opponents and unerringly not kill them, your own allies or...

On the contrary, what I'm saying is that I find Kira's experience so fantastical, that it shatters my ability to identify with him. I presume that I normally identify with characters in the same way...

Wait, weren't you the one who said "All you need [to identify with a character] is an emotional conflict faced by the characters that represent some bits of our lives."? If, by your own admission,...

Yes, and that was what I intended to say - Kira knows exactly where, when, and how to shoot and move, practically every time. He's obviously not omnipotent, as he would have just willed the fighting...

Experiences and perspectives? Most of them. Abilities? A few.



Perhaps, but my feeling like I missed out won't grant me that ability, nor will it make Gundam SEED's narrative seem any more...

Yet by your own admission, had Yamato not been so overpowered, he wouldn't be able to get away with not killing. Facing overwhelming odds is already challenge enough. Making him so that he is so...

An overwhelming amount of innocence, energy, and cheerfulness, I'd say. A loli's honesty should be reflexively intrinsic, and they should make you want to smile in spite of yourself. Their actual...

What else? Run around with it in her hands or on her head, shaking it, shoving it in people's faces, and generally being a complete spaz! :D

No, I thought it was absolutely beautiful and stunning. Easily the best show of the season. It may be the best show all year.
