So episodes 7 through 12 dropped (the following contains spoilers)
I have made no secret that I fully believe Vander was the single worst idea in the entire show (
so far), and while I am glad they get rid of him I have to question why they even bothered.
I mean, it IS an interesting idea to see someone from the “modern world” serving as an antagonist, given how little the modern world matters after the galactic tournament.
The problem (ETA: Okay, ONE of the problems) is that, because the show is constantly hammering down how the REAL threat are Hades and Poseidon and we were already shown how outpowered Vander’s forces were from day one, we already know Vander is no threat. Specially when the REST of the saints show up.
Part of me wonders if the initial plan wasn’t to make Vander the antagonist of a mini-arc involving young seiya trying to find the Sanctuary. Then they scrapped the idea but kept Vander around for no reason. To have him be the antagonist to a young pre-saint seiya would certainly make for a more believable believable threat (I dunno, it could also been like this since the beginning).
The Silver Saint arc… was honestly one of the least interesting parts of the original show, with Shiryu losing his sight being the most relevant part of the whole thing, so really, the only shocker for me was seeing it adapted at all..
he tried to kill a kid his age over a card game and put said kid’s grandpa into a coma because of a card
ppl “there are no ethical billionaires”-ing Kaiba is kinda true and funny, but also he’s a 15-year-old who stole a war criminal’s fortune so he could 1) dismantle the military industrial complex and 2) Make Fortnite Real
There’s only so many rooms full of dead bodies who have horrifying rictus grins or were scared to death by Fear Drugs you can see before you start to get a little Haunted By The Horrors You Have Witnessed O.O
The transition for each robin is interesting to see like they all seem to start out as kids having fun and then that quickly becomes slightly brooding teens into even more brooding adults like I understand Bruce broods alot but like what does he do to these kids?
Robin has so much LOLcat energy here…
Batman: Gotham Adventures #19
I slightly disagree on Dick. he is often brooding as a teen, but I always found him quite happy with his adult life.
