Hmm...I feel like this got strawman'd a bit. I was talking about Maki and Nico, but as separate people. Not their relationship. Although they have a nice dynamic I don't think Nico fit much into her early development at all since NicoMaki scenes were sparse until season 2 and even then they were sort of fan service.

I also don't see how she subverts the trope of tsundere or it makes her emotionally honest. She's often blunt like Nico, but that's about it. I think every girl(except perhaps Honoka which is an important factor) is keenly aware of their perceived limitations and puts up an emblematic facade. Eli lacks confidence so she feigns it. Maki isn't any different in that regard.She's just as unlikely to seek help as shown by the fact that she was always alone before µ's. It was only with Honoka's and Nozomi's constant prodding and her relationship with Rin and Hanayo that she actually came out of her shell a bit. She obviously wanted friends, but was too afraid to seek them out on her own. She wanted to pursue her dreams with music, but was too afraid to take that step and be defiant to her parent's wishes. She had to wait until the other girls gave her an excuse. Specifically, encouraging Hanayo to pursue her dream while hiding her own desire to do the same. Doing so under the pretense of coaching her and telling her she should join since she has a nice voice. It's actually a major theme of EVERY girl in the series as explained by Nozomi in her episode. She saw girls she wanted to reach out to, but couldn't figure out a method. Honoka is the only truly straightforward one and that's why she's the leader. It was only with her crazy dream that and unbridled confidence that they were able to come together and grow.

Although the childishness is played at her expense I do think it is a major part of her character. The "mature" young princess of the Nishikino Hospital who has to put on a front due to her status, but is still just an innocent little girl on the inside. Different interpretations of the character though.



But Maki doesn't put up a facade. That is why she is so emotionally honest, and subverts the usual tsundere trope. She isn't self-delusional, which is what defines the other girls (and the tsundere). She might doubt herself occasionally, as she does somewhat with her ability as an artist, but she doesn't delude herself into thinking she's someone she's not, and her responses to the others and the story show that: for example, while she may childishly believe in somethings, she does so earnestly. Her loneliness also shows this, though to get into this element of her character would necessarily involve Nico (especially DAT SONG <3).

I would disagree that Honoka is honest. While the series wants to make that part of narrative, it doesn't reinforce it. She's the most dishonest, the most self-delusional and self-serving. But that's a character study that goes off topic.......

In the future, aka Avid's tournament; I hope EVERYONE uses the 36 Stratagems and The Art of War.

You would imagine that voting for your best guy is the optimal solution, but no, it is not.

You might also think that forming teams or what not is also optimal, to an extent "together we are strong" is a good concept, and I would say that is a start.

How many fans like AoT only to have their dreams crushed? Or when the devious works of Railgun. See, it is not who you want to win, it is who you want to lose.

Which would you want to bet on? 1 in 64 chance of winning or 63 in 64 chance of losing. I would take the 63.

So you are saying that people shouldn't have dreams
Unless they are of the elimination variety.

It must be a sad tragedy to be an OP...
You were implying the divide part... I guess the Tounrey does a pretty good job doing the divide part on it's own though.
So if the OP doesn't win, does it mean the OP can't conquer? Or that even in conquering the OP won't win

Also it is impossible for Caesar to win... even though he said the quote. Caesar was OP, yes?


It is somewhat a giant leap since it was not Caesar's successor that lead Rome to its downfall.

"It was inevitable." The fall of Rome, that is.

I've got a pretty good idea about what you actually mean about OP...
But were you ever going to post that list of what it means to be OP? You mentioned it a while back.
