The whole Orange vs Bat thing felt forced to me.

...

I don't think he was a bad character (writing wise) and I understand why the writers used him for that role.

What he did definitely upset me, but that just proves I had become emotionally invested in the show. Sure he's a brash asshole, and I wouldn't piss on him to save him from immolation, but people like that exist and sometimes they're in the right place at the wrong time.

You'll always find characters like Slaine in anime. I still don't get why people are so hostile about him.


Slaine acts without thinking period. Shoots asks questions later. The kid was made to be a villain deal with it he's going to face a brutal demise by the hands of Inaho. Why Inaho? His sister said she became a soldier to protect the world he lives in. Maybe not word for word but he's alive maybe not conscious though. You can bet your ass he's going to get some vengeance.



Slaine is a character of sheer emotion and heart?

He's bad alright, but he's far from the worst of 2014. I can think of a few characters who are much worse than Slaine is, and I need to see things play out in the second half before deciding. But yes, he rubs me the wrong way for his impulsive decisions.

God lord... This is actually a thread?

Did Slaine run purely on emotion? Sure. Did that result in some very stupid decisions? Most definitely. Does that make him a bad character? I don't believe so. It makes him a pretty stupid character for not thinking things through and letting his emotions get the better of him, but he's not, by any stretch of the imagination, a bad character. Just because a character does something stupid, or does bad things, in the context of the anime it may make them a bad person (which I don't think Slaine really is), but in the context of anime as a fictional medium, he's not a bad character.

Well he is going to be a villain so that would make him a bad character right? Lmao I know what you mean though. How old is Slaine? I'm assuming he's around the same age as Inaho. Which is 15. I can't blame the boy for being psychotic and being trigger happy. Though he is clearly meant to be a villain. Lighten up the director clearly wanted people to hate slaine and loath him.

I wanted to freaking beat that kid...and I'm a very pacifistic person. His stupidity reaches such abnormal limits I seriously wonder about the mental health of the writters.

What Slaine should have done:
First time he encounters where the Princess is he gets out, supports her and stays by her side. Would have removed the beatings, anguish, etc... from his part of the story and added a fun element to the terran group. Hey here's a used to be Terran who was assimilated by the Versians, lets see what he knows etc blah blah blah.

You need to insult Slaine but all you do is that many continue to admire him more Slaine
