Sure. Basically, as long as a character is given the attention they deserve in their final moments, or their death helps to move the plot forward, then I'm not going to begrudge the writers for killing them off. Death scenes tend to be some of the best and most memorable ones in all of fiction if they're done well, so a lot of the time, their final moments make up for the fact that they're absent afterwards. Along that line of thinking, I don't mind too much when characters die. My only problem is when they die badly.

A good death scene is either heartfelt and deeply indicative of the character, or important in how it affects other members of the cast (ideally both). When a death does neither of these, it feels like a waste of a character. This is the kind of death that bothers me; the character it happens to is just unlucky enough to be the victim. If it's a character that I like, then yeah, I'll be more upset about it, but conversely, if my favorite character gets a really good death scene, I love it.


I have a clearer understanding now, thanks. Yeah, I agree with everything you've said except sometimes in works of fiction, a death scene is meant to be "bad" in that it's humiliating and degrading of the character. I think that type of death, a "bad" death in this sense, can be just as memorable or heartfelt. If any of that makes sense. Perhaps you can note some examples in anime of bad and good deaths? I can't really list any of my own. Well, actually, let me try:

I'd hate for a character like Hirasawa Yui (K-on) to die. First of all, where would it even come from? The anime is just a bunch of cute girls doing cute things and singing- and it's based off a slice of life comedy 4koma manga. Where can they fit the main character's death in that plot? Not to mention that it is extremely out of place, and would probably kill the popularity and sales of the anime.
My point is, that I'd hate for an out of place death of a character who is in a situation that has almost nothing to do with death and fighting. I also don't want vice admiral Smoker to die.

Can you elaborate on what you mean?


In other words, as long as the scene was written well, it's fine. And they're right.

But if I have to say....

I hate to see die:

Any of the human nakama in Bleach....though at this point? I just want them out of their misery. Watching them fight is like watching a pitbull and a kitten go at it.


Any of the K characters, despite the fact that I can't stand Fushimi or the Skater kid. But I'd be heartbroken if Shiro, Neko or especially Kuroh got killed off in any future incarnations.


Any of the Free kids.......I know it won't happen, but still....those who've seen episode five know what I mean.

Jiraiya, Minato, Third Hokage from Naruto.


I suppose I would dislike it if random, no-name characters, passer by C, etc. died. So sad.
