Whoops, sorry for the assumption then.

Okay, I can hardly argue whether you found the plot boring or not. Having you aknowledge that there is plot is enough 'victory' for me.

Ah, that explains a few of our misconceptions. You see, what you just described is not what I call plot, I call that battle choreography. Plot is something that adds to the story as a whole, something that has longer term effects, but things like Shana's sword being taken doesn't really affect the plot in any way.

In terms of battle choreography, more happened in the twins fight, yes. But then the twins fight was also much longer.

When was the last time we saw Tanaka keeping a calm demeanor? For someone like him, the reaction was perfectly natural.

I'm sorry. I kind of forgot that ASuki isn't like the other boards I've been to, where people tended to argue with me just because they wanted to argue with me so that they could trip me up on one little thing and use it to discredit my entire argument. I'm just not really used to having an argument to somebody who actually believes their side of the story, rather than trying to play the devil's advocate in order to make me feel terrible. For my accusations, I'm sorry.
No offense taken, don't worry about it.
