Re: Hanako as a "Mary Sue"?

May I point out that I don't particularly see her as this character, other than by her base traits: I was merely wondering if anyone shared the opinion, and I reocgnize that she demonstrates an antithesis to the term. The name "Mary Sue" is thrown around a lot, but it still holds meaning: being ofte...

Re: Other Media that gave you "The Feels."

Both Clannad and Kanon, two of Kyoto Animation's seminal works and produced by Key of Haruhi Suzumiya fame, drove me to tears at several points throughout the series. They go above and beyond the normal emotional levels of that kind of series, and the characters are so well-played that you can't hel...

Re: Little Quirks

I absolutely adore how damned deadpan Rin is. It's such a break from the normal melodramatic characters you see in this game.

Re: Hanako as a "Mary Sue"?

Every single fictional character is called a Sue nowadays. It seems like the term is meaningless. It's far from meaningless. For a character to avoid the stigma, he/she/it must show signs of progression away from the original (bad) characteristics: if this progression is not evident, then the term ...

Re: Hanako as a "Mary Sue"?

I merely wondered because she showed several of the defining characteristics, and her elusiveness somehow made it seem like she was more wallowing in her own self-pity. However, I see your point now.

Re: Hanako as a "Mary Sue"?

I've followed Hanako's route to the end after some trial and error, and I must say she captured my heart. However, there is something -Snip- The whole point of the Hanako route is that showering someone with too much sympathy is BAD!! Just look at her bad end if you baby her. So no. She is not a sy...

Hanako as a "Mary Sue"?

I've followed Hanako's route to the end after some trial and error, and I must say she captured my heart. However, there is something about her character that somehow irks me: it falls all-too-readily into place as a "Sympathy Sue"- a character whose dark and troubled past, shyness, and natural disa...
