Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Explain your opinion in great detail. So, would you watch an anime or read a manga where evil triumphs over good? Is there a manga or anime like that?

Enjoy!!!

No. Why would you want evil to win? The world is bad enough with the real evil it has. We don't need to glorify evil and make it triumphant. But perhaps you should define evil. It's okay to explore the concept of evil winning, but to actually wish for it is the product of a sick mind.

Probably because some people get tired of seeing good win. They want to see evil win for once.

Yes. Have read it. If you want specifics I can pm you but the spoilers are too big to discuss in the anime forum.

Again it's okay to explore the concept of evil winning, But to have it where evil flat out wins is repugnant. Would you have wanted the Nazis to win World War II? I think the best stories have good-and evil both win and lose some. Heck even a stalemate is fine. Again you should probably define evil so that a clearer understanding of what you mean is available.

I do think that heroes need to lose more. And obviously good and evil are not black and white. More so to say there are definite things that are good, but not so much for evil.

Kamikaze Kaitou (Phantom Thief) Jeanne is a really good example of this.

I actually prefer the shows with blurred lines. Kara no Kyoukai: Garden of Sinners, basically every manhwa by Hong Mi Ri, Hana Yori Dango, Gargantia, Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler). If NANA ever ends.... More recently. PUNCH! Line. Also all of Bakemonogatari is about this.

Basically, yes. Would watch.

My idea of an evil villain is one who wants to be evil because he or she can. Not because some tragic event happened to the villain that cause him or her to turn into an evil person.

Might makes right eh? Okay, I don't understand why anybody would like a world like that. But I am an idiot what do I know? I'm out of here.

Yes, because the world would be far more interesting if the Third Reich was still around.

I kid. I actually read the Turner Diaries. Flat out repugnant. Though to be fair they were on the "good" side.
