First: The Disgaea reference was to point out that just attacks can be fun to watch if they're big and flashy enough. No tension, no drama, just explosions. Explosions are fun.

Second: I only...

No, Disgaea isn't tense. The attacks are fun to watch, though, because they're so over-the-top. You can literally push your enemies into the sun, for example, or cause enemies to explode by posing...

Okay, I did misunderstand you then. Sorry.

But I don't see how a fight progresses as tense. It's interesting, it's involving, but it's not by definition tense. A fight where you spend your time...

Exactly! The outcome of those battles is never in doubt! That makes them no less exciting!

...And that's just nitpicking. It's a sword made out of energy. I can call it a lasersword if I want.

I only make fun of him because I love him. At least he'll show up in the movie, so there's a chance of some decent screentime there. I hope.
