Re: Rin and autism

I've just realised I've failed to give my opinion on the matter, just attempted to clarify what PDD-NOS is. Well, here goes. In my opinion: it doesn't matter. We can associate whatever mental disorder we like with Rin's behaviour, but that doesn't change the fact that she's just... Rin. Rin is Rin, ...

Re: Rin and autism

Ah yes, DSM-V shuffled around a lot in it's update. Or are we on DSM-VI? I haven't been keeping up to date :lol: Like how ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) has been renamed to ADHD-PI (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - Predominantly Inattentive), to avoid confusion with ADD (Alcohol Dependa...

Re: Rin and autism

That is what now? You know how autism is a spectrum, right, and encompasses a bunch of stuff? Well, PDD-NOS used to fall into that in the DSM-IV but if I recall correctly, doesn't anymore. It stands for a pervasive development disorder not otherwise specified. It was often referred to as 'atypical ...

Re: Could you?...In real life?

If we're talking about us, the players, being pushed into Yamaku... I'd be Shizune. I wouldn't be Hisao, I'd really just be an alternate Shizune and so probably end up with her. And if we're saying that you're put into Hisao's position, but not restricted by the choices, I'd probably end up with Shi...

Re: Shizune/Misha Love/Hate Relationship

Wow, this thread has changed it's main focus so much it's kind of scary. Before I accidentally revived this, everyone was expressing hate for Shizune. But now it seems most just disagree with some of her actions. I will give you that Shizune does some weird, slightly uncalled for things. She's still...

Re: Shizune/Misha Love/Hate Relationship

Holy shit, what have I revived? This has turned into quite the debate, and I now feel inadequate because I can't contribute as much as I'd like. Anyways, yes, Shizune's actions were uncalled for in that one scene. That still doesn't make her a bad character, as many in the thread have said she is.

Re: Shizune/Misha Love/Hate Relationship

I still don't really get why people hate Shizune, though I know I won't change anyone's mind.

Re: Shizune/Misha Love/Hate Relationship

I don't see Shizune as a bully at all. It's been a while since I went down her path, but all she seems to be is occasionally inconsiderate. And also, maybe passionate about her ideals. If that makes a bully, shit, I and people I know must all be bullies, then. I haven't been able to say who my favou...

Re: Shizune/Misha Love/Hate Relationship

The scene where Shizune ties up Hisao's hands definitely isn't rape. He may have preferred to be able to move more, but he was definitely not wanting her to stop, and definitely didn't try to stop her. And while I agree that Shizune is unnecessarily mean to Hanako at points, and Hanako is my favouri...

Re: Shizune/Misha Love/Hate Relationship

I feel like I'm a terrible person and that everyone will hate me, but uh... I'm basically Shizune IRL, just not deaf. She's actually not my favourite because of that. She reminds me of how mean I can be sometimes :( . But other than that, no I don't dislike her at all. She's probably my second or th...
