    If you had nominated Hazama (BlazBlue) for Best Antagonist I might have done so too. But as is, he probably has no real chance. However, I might nominate Monokuma. He was a great troll villain.
    Good god, I totally forgot about him. I shall definitely edit him in.

    It sounds like the 'deaths' in Madoka are not treated as real deaths and so they cannot be compared to Valvrave. I concede.

    However, I can see why Valvrave made more deaths happen, they had a lot more characters than Madoka so if the percentage of deaths were low, they would feel cheap anyway.
    Spoiler for Statement considering number of deaths:

    It was the former. The main issue I was complaining about was that Valvrave's technological level seemed too low on the whole considering that it presumably takes place hundreds of years in the future. There's a few futuristic flourishes here and there, mostly for flavor (The Dyson Sphere, living on other planets, etc)... but the everyday life of someone living in Valvrave's world really isn't that much different from someone living in today's world, unless you happen to be a mecha pilot. Looking around my bedroom, about half the things I see didn't exist a few hundred years ago (the laptop I'm typing this on, my PC, my wireless router, my smart phone, my electric fan, my lava lamp, my deodorant, the pair of batteries lying on the dresser...), and likewise there should be hundreds of years in the future a variety of minor and moderately important 'new things' weaving themselves throughout daily life that don't exist in any capacity today.

    Valvrave doesn't really have much of that, it's closer to "Well, we built really cool robots, but otherwise we've all had our fingers up our asses these past five or six centuries and progressed in only a few other areas." There were some very big changes to Valvrave's world (the Dyson Sphere being the most obvious, and the spacefaring stuff with fighting robots and all), but though there were a few 'big picture' futuristic elements, there wasn't much care given to the smaller details. I had to roll my eyes at the wedding at the end of the last episode, where that camera was at a 75% charge (with the implication, I suppose, being that the event drained the battery by a quarter). Half a millennium into the future, and battery capacities haven't improved at all? I was being sarcastic whenever I said in that one post a couple weeks back that I half-expected Akira to be shown using a Windows 8, but that video recorder thing actually comes pretty fucking close to that.

    But I'm sure that most science fiction stories which take place in the distant future are largely grounded in present day technologies and lifestyles simply to make them more relatable to the audience. My griping probably wasn't entirely fair, and I didn't really feel like defending myself against anyone that might've argued against me, so I deleted the post maybe 60 seconds after submitting it.

    Disclaimer: I did not watch the second season of Valvrave.

    Did you feel that the deaths in Madoka Magica were not (that) needed as well or am I overreacting/misunderstanding?

    I'm putting this on my wall as an informal survey of those who regularly check my wall (lol) - Should I get a new avater/sig for the new year?

    Options...

    1) Keep what you have. Sayaka suits you.
    2) Keep Avatar, Change Sig
    3) Keep Sig, Change Avatar
    4) Change Both. Madoka Magica is sooo 2011. Time for something new, dude.


    Please reply to this with a PM if you want to offer some advice.

    I just now remembered it's because of Kyon that Yuki doesn't wear glasses anymore.

    Looking back, though...it didn't feel like an important moment.
