Which side is evil and which side is good? It all depends on the perspective.

In Akame ga Kill, if you change the perspectives then you get an entirely different view of the story.

to ensure that all i've done won't end up a lie. i don't want to talk big game to people, then run away when it matters the most. this is a wall i must overcome on my own. if there's anything i want to change, i have to change myself. if i must become evil to defeat evil, i will become the devil himself. that's all to it. By Yūji Kazami.

This my ideal type of good anime character

So long as it's interesting and not too over the top in evil.

No action has ever been done solely due to support some kind of cosmic evil. To think otherwise is as immature as it is ludicrous. Everyone has a reason, and they always think that their reason is good. Whether they're Hitler, or a nihilistic teenager who shoots up a school, they're all under the impression that they're doing what they must, either for the greater good, or as a last resort. Even the fictional character The Joker from Batman had his reasons, even though they weren't necessarily explained or you're too ignorant to fathom them. As a show progress it's the author's job to make you root for whatever he wants you to root for, such as in the case of the Dexter novels, the author begins by making Dexter murder a child molester who murders his victims, oh, and Dexter does so as if he could be emotionally invested even though he psychologically can't, dabbling in vigilantism that isn't really present. The author also goes through a whole lot work to make you believe that Dexter not only picks out murderers, but that all of his targets are without a doubt guilty, even though, in reality, you can never be 100% sure that a person is guilty. And in the end, you root for Dexter even though he murders a bunch of people who with 100% certainty are innocent, because you are fed the line "Dexter has done so much good for the world, so what's a few casualties?"

The reality you live in is one where Christians and Muslims believe that they're good, even though they enforce their religious doctrines upon everyone around them, string people up by their necks, decapitate them, burn them alive, chop people's hands off, cut womens' breasts off, and mutilate childrens' genitalia, oh, and genocides. SAINT Olaf was a mass murderer who massacred half our country due to this praise-me-I'm-holier-than-thou Christian attitude; the people who now live on Iceland are descendants of those who managed to escape their persecution.

I did not write all that to turn this into some religious debate or debate on subjectivity as that would derail the thread. My point is this, though I seldom make points anymore, that nothing is without reason, and that is why...

TL;DR?

... I don't root for 'good' or 'evil'. I simply root for characters I find likable, and 'necessity' over 'excess'.

You're not an idiot.


Nah, I am an idiot. I was getting to worked up over this thread. So I call myself an idiot so I don't take myself too seriously.

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


I'm glad you're kidding. My father was a US Army Infantryman during WWII and helped liberate a concentration camp.It affected him for the ret of his life. I have no sympathy for or desire to understand Neo-Nazis and the KKK. I tried to read Mein Kampf to see if I could get a grasp on Der Supreme Nutjob but got disgusted and threw the book away after one chapter. But I study history (esp. military history) and have a criminal justice concentration in my MPA. So I know all to well the evil humans do to each other. I have no desire to see it win in fiction.

Yes, if the story was well told.

Would anyone define Gasai Yuno as "good"

She most certainly won in the end.

It was why I asked the original poster to define evil.

Correct me if I'm wrong but OP only posted something vague and didn't define evil preciously.

The perspective-thing sums it up just perfect.
