evil|plushie hit it right on, although I would add "psycho bitch from hell" to that list. Nina is pretty unhinged - would you say obsessive-compulsive in this kind of situation? Anyway, they could have spread it out a bit more, but that would have reduced the effect. It's not like Nina is the only racist in the show, there's plenty of those to go around. We also have to consider that there was some event in Nina's past which led to her current fear of Elevens - something about being left behind, if Millay's talk on the train way back at the beginning during the hoteljacking has any meaning to it.

They really didn't seem to try that hard to make Nina a interesting character.

Haha, that is actually pretty accurate to make someone lol. I suppose, you could say that Sunrise did try their best, to make Nina...well, not likable. 8D {much}

And blade woah, kudos for finding that one, that shall be interesting. xD

Just realized something.

Lerouch is one of the few "used correctly, can kill a Saiyajin/Saiyan of Dragonball Z/Kai " normal human characters.

Even if the Geass does not work on full blooded Saiyajin Warriors like Prince Vegeta or Kakarot, Son Gohan, Trunks and Son Goten (and of course, Gotenks) are still half-human.

And no human, no matter how strong willed, can resist even the kill yourself command.

Oh, Lerouch, you scare me more and more every-day.

Two humans showed the willpower to break through a Geass command: Euphemia, and Nunnally. You'd have to put one of the Saiyans into one hell of a Heroic BSOD to get a Geass to work on them, as they have far greater willpower than the average human.

Hmm, true. Actually, I would theorize that pretty much all Shonen heroes are immune to geass by default. Luffy, Naruto, Ichigo, their will is just too strong to break, even by the geass. Now Emo Sasuke on the other hand...

Though Nunna-chan and Euphie-chan are not any ordinary humans either; both have the will of varitable Saints compared to your average Jane or Joe.

Well, the power of the Geass itself isn't tied to the user's own determination to make it succeed. Uneven playing field.

Also, Nunnally broke Charles' Geass, but not Lelouch's. Same goes with Euphie.

This thread is now about the real man of the show Tamaki.

Spoiler for Tamaki stuff:


Low on intelligence, low on charisma, and low on combat ability. Tamaki has no business fighting in this war but he is fighting, surviving, and along the way he's cheering people on, laughing it up, stating the obvious and forever talking shit, no matter what the situation.

Though ya gotta wonder why they keep him around? Personally I think it's for the sexual innuendo. Who else is going to crack dirty jokes about Zero and C.C, though I bet he probably includes all the female members in the organization.

Tamki adding some levity to a horrific war. Thumbs up to Zero's best buddy

He reminds me of Abbe Sieyes. When asked what he had done during the French Revolution, his reply? "I survived."

You dare compare Tamaki to Yamacha?

1) Yamacha never said anything funny

2) Tamaki didn't spend most of his life being afraid of women.

3) Tamaki never died.

Yamcha can't see Tamaki-kewn

Well, he is more of a Kurillin than a Yumcha.

I think "Patrick" sounds good, although Tamaki didn't score with any woman.

C'mon, don't compare Yamcha to Tamaki. Yamcha was useful for some time at the beginning of the series, Tamaki is... Well, i think he's not even a comical relief, cause seeing people crying was funnier than his appearences.

So i hate Tamaki? No. But he certainly sux bad. I like to cheer for the losers, but Tamaki managed to making me don't give a damn about him, and that's preeeetty bad.

Well, I guess those two posts could cancel each other out, but....
