I would define bullying as antagonizing and harassing another person.

I think it would be a mistake to associate anything in anime with rl, everything in anime is orchestrated to provoke an emotional reaction, though I wouldn't say there's no truth in it.

Even what some people consider as teasing can be construed as bullying, and I don't think it's intent to hurt as well that defines bullying, it's closer to whether the person it's directed at feels hurt by it.

/Agree.

But even more than antagonizing, from my experience, bullies decrease others to increase themselves - they will to be exalted, even at the cost of others. They don't even need to antagonize their target. Just simply use them, however many there are.
So I always think that one day, when I become Prime Minister or President, I'd set a day where I would send in raids into schools and teach them bullies who the boss is.

If not, I'd just go to schools sometimes and do what needs to be done.

I never bully. If someone annoys me so much then I will do some sort of it. But then I am just annoyed and ignoring him and sometimes calling him names. Thats all. I dont go to people to bully them. People I bully come to me. >o<

Its like this:

Person A is annoying and follows me. I had enough of that shit and start bullying him (Only a little until he's gone) (Bullying in a way of ignoring -> grumping -> Say that he has to leave and is annoying -> *never really happens* Call him names?? ) Like that. I only bully people who are REALLY ANNOYING!

You know what?


Forget it.

If a person is constantly invading your personal space and doing stuff to annoy you aka Haruhi style wouldn't that be considered bullying (if more then 2 times a week over a period of 6 weeks)? If someone is bullying you then would it be bullying or self defence? In either case, I case your reaction would either fuel the cycle or break it.

One of the things I hate about bullying is when the victim commits suicide. Its like a pointless death. Dying just because some evil group or whatever think its fun to pick on somebody. Its discusting!

Is it really pointless? The bullies will live knowing that their actions pushed someone over the edge to suicide. That will haunt them for the rest of their lives.

Not the buggers shown in Shigofumi, I could imagine they would be chalking one up on their score boards

I don't watch Shigofumi, but check out Ghost Hound to see what I was referring to
