Aquarion EVOL - Character Discussion - Jin

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things Jin related.
To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Aquarion EVOL fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!
Note: Please don't use this for the specifics (i.e. episode, chapter, game, etc. discussion) there are other threads for that stuff.
Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whinging and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favourite.
  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter are always welcome, but harassing people will not be tolerated.
  • Discuss, don't chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel.
  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.
  • Use Spoiler tags!
    Spoilers are allowed, but they must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN.
    • Adding a Spoiler tag:
      Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms. Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!

    • Please use the Report button if you see any spoilers:
      Click the button found to the left of the post, just under the poster's avatar. Using the Report button is anonymous and helps the Moderators to locate and deal with problems quickly.

    • Posting prohibited spoilers may result in a ban.
      Note: Reporting a post does not mean the poster will be banned instantly. The Moderators will use bans if warnings are repeatedly ignored.

I'll open off: we know he is written as an otaku. Question: does anyone else get the sense he's also written a bit like he's "royalty"? Something about the way he interacts with the other hole-digging brothers seems to me to be very "I'm a prince and not used to interacting with such commoners".

In a way he is royalty, though, since he's (aside from Kagura) a one of a kind for Altair. He is the last child to be born on the planet and is, to others, something of a beacon of hope that maybe, one day, other children will also be born to help the planet recover. He's also young, which means that, unlike the others, he's many years of good breeding ahead of him when he finds an Eve.

Though his interactions on Vega would, imo, fall more on being taken aback from a lack of experience with such and petty things like digging holes to get to girls.

Yay for character sub forum!

Yeah, I think Jin is suppose to be the otaku of the bunch (Zessica is the tease, Mikono is the shy young lady, etc), but one thing I like about this show is that despite what stereotype a character gets pigeon holed into (Andy will appreciate this unintended pun XD) they end up exceeding the confines of their role.

Mikono and Amata for example are going beyond their former useless mind set, and Zessica has more sides to her than just being the seemingly flirty hot chick. I like the fact that while Jin might be an Alicia otaku he is also a very capable tactician and has given Neo DEAVA a run for their money more than once. And despite coming off as cold and introverted I think his development with Yunoha in the last couple of episodes has made us aware that he's also very naive.

The next episode preview shows Yunoha crying so I now totally hate his guts. He better make it up to her or else there will be blood...

Spoiler for lol:

I've always found Jin so cute and adorable with his awkwardness. Being in a school setting really brought it out the best him him.

"legends said that Alto Saotome made a correct decision, he left both Ranka Lee & Sheryl Nome to marry the skies & proceed to make love with her, it was a long sight to behold according to the witnesses, the sky is now pregnant"
