The Great Nitpicky Live Blog of El Goonish Shive
OF COURSE! OF COURSE HE'S WORRIED ABOUT HIS SISTER! APART FROM THE FACT THAT SHE IS AN EXACT CLONE OF HIM, AND THUS POSSESSES THE SAME FIGHTING CAPABILITIES, A FEMALE WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO FEND FOR HERSELF.
What, no mention of the fact that Vlad's supposed numbness protecting him from Nanase's attacks makes little to no sense? I mean, it's neither logical for him to not feel pain nor for that to somehow make him invincible.
I just figured he was being a hyperbolic dickbag. I mean, I dunno, in karate I clash shins a lot, and it's always hilarious when you spar a newbie, and you clash shins for the first time, because they're in huge amounts of pain, while you've built up a tolerance to it by that point. I figured it was just that, tolerance, and he was just being a drama-queen. Although, transforming ONE time, YEARS ago does make me question it.
Plus, his reasoning makes no sense. How does a one time experience with pain makes you immune to it? But you first criticize him for trying to come up with an explanation for Vlad's indoor flying ability and then criticize him for the way he draws his fights. So either way is wrong? You can't talk him down when he tries to explain something that somebody with an expertise in that field might pointed out to him and than criticize him for not correctly portraying the field you are experienced in.
Very true. SNAFU it is and lets call it a day. Or I can edit it in, but that might make me appear all orwellian-y. Which do you prefer?
Nah, it's alright. Leave it, so I can link here and tease you from time to time.
