Ok, Jade, Tear, Anise and Ion have an excuse (he does have the body of a 17-year old, and it can be difficult to wrap your head around that level of amnesia), but Guy and Natalia have no excuse, since they're partly responsible for teaching him to function again!
This is why i wasn't happy with the way everyone treated him after the incident. Sure Luke making up excuses wasn't the best possible thing for him to do at the time, though that shouldn't have been the reason for everyone to jump on him. Natalia and Guy especially know the type of life Luke has had, so they should at least be able to accept why Luke did what he did. Van was the only person Luke had in his life, he looked upto him so of course he'd do what he asked, especially when Van was making it out to be as he was, saving the world and be a hero. Van is a smart one for knowing Luke would be this easy to control --- having no worry that Luke would talk about it with the group.

I guess one of the good things that came out of this, is that Luke will begin to change for the better, but still everyone was to harsh on him.

Bash Luke! All the cool kids are doing it!

I really wanted to see the Asch losing version of that fight.

I don't see that many people bashing him at all. Figure we need more doing it to balance things out more .

It'd be stupid for Asch to lose that fight anyways. It'd be unrealistic to see him lose a fight when Luke has completely lost his head. It was pretty even when relatively level heads were at play. Not too hard to counter when he's like that.

I think they reacted more at his defensive reaction than at the fact he'd led to Akzeriuth's destruction (that'd be very hypocrite coming from Tear, considering she knew from the beginning Van was plotting something). It's understandable they reacted that way, they were all very stressed at the time.
Luke's reaction was natural too. Not only was there denial, but it also seemed as if they were all pining the blame on him only, and he wasn't ready for that yet.
(and anyway it's not entirely his fault, a lot of them have some part of responsibility in it, but the only one we should really blame is Van, since he's the one who wanted it to happen, who's been plotting it for at least seven years)

Well, i'm not going to make gifs with this episode images, even if luke trying to attack Asch was a good scene, but just this one...

nor like it's a big thing to..


But,now talking about the episode...........WHAT THE HELL?WHY EVERYONE SAID THAT IT WAS LUKE'S FAULT?Sure that he was the "key" to the destruction, but a lot of people have commited some mistakes too.

Not just feel sorry, but you need to know that it's not just Luke's fault.



First I'll talk about you, Princess Natalia, you heard the conversation, you saw Asch's face and you're not an idiot, can't you realize something before the disaster?IT'S YOUR FAULT!

Now you, mr i'm-sooooooooo-cute-Ion. Why you just said "but...but...but...ok, luke, i'll open the door even if this man with RED DARK BAD eyes is smiling in secret right here =D/". IT'S YOUR FAULT TOO!

And, oh, yeah, we have Tear. "Ah, my brother, i tried to kill him. Ah, my brother, he's strange and I do not believe in him. Ah, my brother, he called Luke to this place so suspicious and there are suspicious guards and suspicious and all...well, something will not end good in this episode, but it's ok, since i'm in a different place no one can blame me, and some time after the disaster I'll just tell bad things to luke pretending to look like it's not my fault S2".

Anise...well, she's ok because she have motives to blame Luke since he was so bad with Ion last episode.

Jade. i love Jade. I refuse myself to tell where he have commited the fault, but I saw someone talking about him to pages ago so it's ok too S2


[s]Guy[s/] i refuse myself to talk about Guy too, since he spend his days telling how much Luke's hair is beautiful and how Luke's attitudes are right. He never tried to tell more than "Do you really think these things?>=B".

Asch. ASCH YOU'RE SO CUTE, GIMME A SWEET SMILE!!!!!!!!!! Ok, it's not Asch's fault.


Van... i'll not waste my time talking about something so obivious.

I do not love Luke in that much to blame all the personages in this way(like i'm doing now, cahem). I'm just talking about hypocrisy. It's like children in kidgarden: Luke and Van past glue in Helba's hair. Every kid in the garden saw the two of they making it. Helba called the teacher. the teacher asked who did it. Everyone looked to Luke. Luke said "no, teacher, it was Van senpai's fault too =O". All the kids that saw the situation say nothing. Van runs away.

Ps: it's just a simple example, do not ask me "who's Helba?", please >XD
Ps2: I wrote the post so fast...sorry if I have commited one or more grammar mistakes @_@


edit: WAIT A MINUTE, WHAT'S WITH THE BOY IN THE GAME THAT I SAW IN THE VIDEO RIGHT NOW? SO SAD!;-;

Considering how much you enjoy bashing characters from other series, I find that statement from you rather hilarious (no bad intentions meant ).

Some thoughts for ep 8 which is quite easily my favorite episode thus far

Don't get me wrong, I still think he's an asshat. I can just see why he's an asshat, and more importantly, see how easily Van's plan could have been smashed into little pieces by a little patient explanation. You treat someone like an asshat, they become an asshat.

It's just my imagination or Luke has less than 10 fans? Probably my imagination, but, based in the game or the anime, people seems to love more Asch(specially girls) than Luke(not like there's something wrong, Luke is such a...........argh)

Well, I understand how Luke grew up into an idiot. Plus, ep 7 was so cliche that only Luke's utter stupidity and denial till the very end actually deviated a bit from the usual cliche. Ah well, he'll get better obviously, that's the usual recipe, I don't doubt I'll like him in the end, not that I really hate him now either. I just laugh at his stupidity and at the character development predictability. But other than that, I enjoy how everyone else kept telling Luke off for being a moron.

I'm sure there are at least more than 10... But Asch being popular seems understandable(?). For now.

I'm sure he has maybe 11 fans . Really I'm sure Luke has quite a few fans from the game anyways. Sure I like Asch more, but that's just personal feelings on it.

Do wonder how much could be done to deal with Van's plan. I mean the guy had to be plotting this well before the kidnapping. Not that more couldn't have been done, but not sure about whether it would have worked in the end.

Too true, since events went according to his plans it's hard to say what he would have done if it failed. He didn't appear to have a back up plan, but you never know. Then there is the score to consider.

Fan of Luke right here and I'm female. He was my favorite character in Abyss, especially because he amused me. Though Jade sure came close to being my favorite, too.

Indeed...though I thought it was a bit too late for them all to lay it onto him...it would have been better to have crushed his spirits before all those innocent people were sacrificed...

Honestly, at this point, they can just kill off Luke, have Asch join the party and everything will be peachy.

LOL to people who think it wasn't Luke's fault, you're all in denial, just like Luke.

I don't think it was 100% his fault but it was still him who did it. And I don't think the others were blaming him for it, they've just had it with his attitude-it was everyone else's' fault but his.

Luke is so stupid and idiotic that he'll listen to ANYTHING that Van tells him to.

Van: Luke go jump off that cliff.
Luke: Yes sensei!!!

And have you played the game? Because one of Asche's lines does go into that. "House Fabre must have some very stupid genes." one of my favourite scenes.

Well essentially Luke is a seven year old spoiled rich kid. You can't exactly fault him for it considering that is all he knows.

IT'S EXACTLY IN THIS WAY!
But I think that it's ok to believe in Van in episode 8 since everyone is bullying Luke last episodes. the guy is just having fun like "yay, i'm the embassador, yay yay yay". i hate to have to tell it, but Luke is cute when you look this way...




btw, forgot to say something, a little coment about episode 9 preview....
