You fail to mention the true god of their world.

Kind of torn between Lord Death and Tet. A sense of humor is important. :P

You mean the female hookee who exists to lose to a pair of nerd children in a word game?

She's a cool character, but she exists to make the children look good when they beat her supposedly overpowered ass, option B.




Nah, I'm referring to the one who legit lost only due to her opponent utilizing what amounts to super-powered technology. She was the only opponent who not only refused to cheat, but figured out Soras' strategy.

Consider it like this: she might have been the better fighter, but Sora was piloting a Gundam, so skill didn't matter and goes on to show the lie that he is the king of games or whatever, much as in Gundam the pilots of the Gundam are shown to not be warriors or paragons of virtue, their very victory often meant to reveal the uneasy way in which human ideals are often subject to the reality of human nature.

Your analogy has lost me.

The original gundam was a powerful prototype mobile suit that far and away out performed the Zaku class suits.

But as the show went on, Amuro eventually faces suits of equal or superior tech than the prototype Gundam, and eventually he himself out performs the Gundam suit through his own skill.

So, the Gundam is an object that enables the young hero to do things beyond his capability, and he eventually out grows into his own shoes as a pilot and no longer needs the gundam.

Or so goes the original Gundam and the sequel Zeta Gundam.


And in Turn A the Gundam was some kinda symbol for war and peace.....


We are totally lost.

I think that he is saying that Sora basically had a huge advantage that couldn't be overcome by just being good at that specific game.

I don't think that was the case at all though. A lot of that show was just pulled from thin air. Rules added on that sort of made sense, but at the same time felt like they were included to just give the main character an advantage.

Indeed, and as NGNL went on, the series had to keep cranking up the level of deus ex machina required for Blank to win: just as Amuro eventually got a stronger Gundam, culminating in what he used in CCA. (And to which he still couldn't win without Char being in a lesser mobile suit..........)


Outside of the UC series, it's much more prevalent.

Turn A I think symbolizes what I mean about the uneasy interplay between human ideals and the reality of human nature (human ideal of peace, human reality of war.....)
