It just so happens that I AM taking up Screenwriting for this term, as a prep for the Screenwriting Workshop next semester. It's been a real eye-opener, especially for someone like me who just watches a show, and doesn't nitpick about the details of a plot (why should I if I'm enjoying myself?) too much. I've learned since to pay attention, particularly about whether or not a work follows the expected formula (its a formula that is followed particularly because it's successful), whether it goes against the vein, and whether or not a particular execution of said formula succeeds or crashes and burns.
On a related note, the aspects of my screenplay (as detailed in my journal) are built around the following: a smart, skinny, but bratty girl named Sandra, who likes pink stuff, toys, and likes to throw tantrums when she doesn't get what she wants, a pink starfish, and a cigarette. And I'm expected to write a 100-page screenplay out of these by the end of the term?
I suppose I dodged some bullets though, as some of my classmate's selections (we picked out characters and items from a bunch of index cards scattered on a table) were plain weird.
Actually, I'm having a hard time imagining any kind of ship in Tiger and Bunny, especially since Koutetsu himself seems to be largely still hung up on Tomoe. If Sunrise decides to pursue a relationship parallel plotline (like many superhero stories!) then great, as long as its written well I can get behind it. But this is anime so... :P
You seem to be strongly against a Kotetsu/Karina ship. I'm just curious to know why? I mean, presuming it happens after she reaches adulthood, the age difference isn't that big of a deal at that point, is it?
