Ever witness and/or read about a well known fictional character who died in sad or gory way but it left you feeling....meh.

Like you felt nothing towards the death. Not happy, not sad, just like whatever. Everyone else in the fandom was happy or sadden by the death but you could care less. The death didn't faze you one bit.

Name a character from any form of fiction who's death made you feel that way.

Pretty much all of them. It's rare that I care enough about a fictional character to have actual feelings about their death. Usually, I've known about this person who doesn't actually exist for a matter of hours, because they just showed up in this book or movie or series.

The Harry Potter series was different, because I spent weeks or months or even years getting to know certain characters. Game of Thrones was different. But it's reasonably rare for those characters to die. Usually the character that dies has appeared just a hundred pages or a few episodes ago, and has just enough of a personality not to feel like cardboard. Plus I've been through enough stories, whether reading or watching, to know the telltale signs of "somebody gon' die" and I tend to have a pretty solid idea of who it's gon' be.

Well, for one

Clannad


I was confused most of the time to actually know what was going on... so I shed not a single tear (unless if it was from laughing maybe.. idk)

Zeref from Fairy Tail... Getting destroyed by the power of friendship was the most underwhelming crap I've ever read in a manga period.

No crying; the only story I've cried at is Where the Red Fern Grows
Just hollow

It's understandable.

The horse in The Godfather. Everyone freaks out over that scene, but I was more interested in how they pulled it off without waking the guy up.

In Macross Frontier,

Just the way it happened and the way everybody reacted, i.e. exactly how you'd expect them to in a cliché-ridden juvenile story. That was a warning sign for me, one of my favourite characters just died and I'm not feeling anything? I dropped it a few episodes later. It didn't make the transition from light-hearted to serious at all well in my opinion.

Me too.
Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans was such a good show
. I feel like most people who think this is the best Gundam series ever either only watched it and no other Gundam series before it or because it was their first (like Wing). I know it's supposed to be hyper-tragic but in my opinion, it just comes off as pretentious. To me, SEED, SEED Destiny, and from what I've watched of 00 and Unicorn RE: 0096 are better series than IBO.
