I love Cody and I don’t know why many people hate him (Some things in this might make you think that I hate Sierra but I love her)
Flirting with/stalking Gwen: So? People don’t hate Sierra because she stalks Cody! Let’s not forget what Cody did in TDI. He realized that Gwen wants to be with Trent and not him and set them up! Plus, he only flirted with Gwen in WT because he knew that she had broken up with Trent! He also got his karma for being a bit creepy in TDI in the form of Sierra.
Got carried to the final 3 in WT: Why would people hate him for this? So did Duncan in TDA but no one hates him for that! He was being stalked by an uber-fan (Sierra)! She would do anything to make sure Cody was safe! He couldn’t really do anything about it!
Hating on Sierra in the early episodes of WT: Are you kidding me? Do you expect him to love a creepy stalker who won’t leave him alone? Plus, he developed a friendship with Sierra in the final episodes of WT and learned to respect her. Let’s not forget that when Heather said that Sierra fell into quicksand to distract him in the finale of WT, he WAS worried. That proves that he cares for Sierra.
Not doing anything during World Tour: Did people expect him to do anything when an obsessive uber-fan wouldn’t leave him alone? Besides, he actually had minor plot like his friendship with Heather.
Rude to Duncan: Excuse me, but how exactly was he ever rude to Duncan? He only punched him once in WT for insulting him. THAT’S IT!
Overrated for being cute: Do I even need to say it? Is this even a reason to hate a character?
Hypocrite: How exactly is Cody a hypocrite? If people are talking about the whole “Cody stalks Gwen, Sierra stalks Cody” thing then they haven’t even watched WT. When did Cody tell Sierra to stop stalking him and then stalk Gwen? Another invalid reason.
I said I would defend every single Code Geass character, and that’s what I’m going to do! It’s a good thing I recently, re- watched R2, or this defense would be subpar at best…. Anyway, here I go.
Character: Ohgi Kaname
Fandom: Code Geass
Betrayed Lelouch after learning he was being used as a pawn
Yeah, what a total jerk! How dare he be upset that he was used a s pawn when he genuinely thought the person gave at least half of a fuck about his people! *shakes off the extra sarcasm* For real, as soon as ya’ll think your precious Lelouch is possibly being judged, ya’ll jump into a damn frenzy. Now let’s be real here. It was admitted by a lot of the Black Knights that Ohgi would have laid down his life for Zero, no questions asked. So of course, he was a little less than pleased to see that the person that he entrusted the lives of his friends with was a Britannian. Now, he probably could have worked with that, except that there was a strong possibility that some of their actions, including the ones that lead to the death of some of the members, was most likely done against their will. And to top it off, he hears Lelouch confess to being responsible for the mass murder that occurred (you know that whole Euphy thing). Now yeah, we know the truth, but they don’t. Now you know good and damn well that no clear thinking person would stick around after all that. It seemed like Lelouch was using the Japanese.
Yeah, you tend to trust the people you care about. Excuse the hell outta him for that. Like damn! And why exactly is this a bad thing? Is it because she’s Britannian? But you were mad for not trusting Lelouch. Seems kinda hypocritical if you ask me.
slept with Villetta
Now, I’ve seen several people who were concerned about this possibly being rape. And you know what fandom, it is 100% great that you are against a non- consensual relationship seeing as how the complaint is that she didn’t have her memories and couldn’t technically consent. A+. However, Ohgi and Villeta didn’t engage in that… activity until well after Villetta regained her memories. Everything prior was strictly emotional.
Now if you’re just pissy about their relationship in general then gtfo. He’s human! People tend to get physical with the people they love! (or even people they don’t but these two are smitten.)
got a happy ending when the protagonist didn’t
That was literally the point of the Zero Requim. Lelouch died so that everyone could live happily, so duh, that includes Ohgi. Like, literally everyone who was still alive was supposed to benefit. So… yeah, bye Felicia.
supposedly a creators pet
How? Because he was the “good guy” and the sweet heart? I honestly don’t even know where this one is coming from since he honestly seemed to get over- looked more than once in the show…
That’s subjective, but I’ll have to say I disagree. I mean, those manly broad shoulders, nice face. I think he’s a looker.
accused of trying to kill Kallen
If you’re talking about when they were aiming at the Shinkiro when they found out about Lelouch, I’m gonna have to disagree with you guys. He was not aming at Kallen, she just happened to be n the way.
occasionally also gets hate for being in the way of Jeremiah/Villetta.
Fandom, shipping is never a good reason to hate a character.
Anonymous said: Sousuke is what we like to call a base breaker character. Half the fanbase hates him, the other half loves him. But lately the hates have been stupidly vocal.
Anonymous said: I don't understand do we love sousuke or do we hate him? Because I honestly love him.
Let’s sit down in our thinking chair and
Anonymous said: I completely understand why Sousuke is controversial. Season 1 went by and then suddenly this guy shows up and, for the majority of the fandom that hasn't read high speed or high speed 2, they have no idea who he is, what he's there for, and why he matters. He's not a jerk for wanting things for his best friend. If Makoto did the same thing for Haruka, people would call it cute and adorable, but just because Sousuke is blunt he's labeled as an a-hole. WHICH ISN'T RIGHT PROTECT SOUSUKE YAMAZAKI
Anonymous said: Sousuke isn't controversial at all, dickbutt.
Fandom, I think you and I need to have a little chat.
And by that I mean I’m going to have to erect a trial in the Great Court to befuddle these amazing dark-witch lies that you’ve spun to slander this golden princess. Swords of truth at the ready. Huge spoilers herein, so mind where you tread.
There will also be triggering content, that of rape/incest/paedophilia mention (but that’s due to the fact she’s.. accused of it rather than it being legit content).
So, here we go.
I must say that I’m a bit surprised that Frank Grimes from the Simpsons episode “Homer’s Enemy” is on here, and I figured I’ll make a defense.
Envious of Homer’s success, too critical of Homer’s character, is rude to Homer even when Homer tries to be nice, is too quick to make judgement, tries to ruin Homer’s reputation, scoffs at Homer’s attempts to change for the better
These can all have the same type of defense. In the episode, it is shown that, ever since childhood, Frank has struggled through life (including being abandoned by his parents and being blown up in a silo explosion). In his own words, Frank has had to work hard every day of his life, and all he has to show for it is a briefcase and his haircut. In contrast, Homer has had pretty much everything in life handed to him, despite being stupid and irresponsible at his job. I can see why he would be envious of Homer. Also, there’s a scene where Frank gets in trouble with Mr. Burns for something that Homer was responsible for. I’d say that most of Frank’s anger towards Homer is justified (not to mention that Homer didn’t start to try and change until after Frank told him that they’re now enemies).
Anonymous said: I just wanted to quickly say something about Nitori from Free!. For people who hate him because he supposedly has no life outside of Rin, now that Season 2 of Free! is airing you get the chance to see Nitori having his own goals, facing his own conflicts and his relationships with other characters.
Okay, so here we have a very major character in Umineko no Naku Koro ni, Beatrice the Golden Witch.
Almost all the complaints border/completely leap onto spoiler territory, so rebuttals are going to be put under the cut.
Blaziken’s a personal favorite so let’s get to it;
"Broken"; I don’t play competitive so I’m not entirely sure what’s meant by this but I imagine it has to do with how overpowered Blaziken can be and possibly how unpredictable a set is. That’s not the fault of Blaziken but the creators and it doesn’t have too much to do with how others play the game outside competition between players. All I can say on this is don’t play with it and don’t battle those who do if you’re so upset by it.
Mega before the other Hoenn Starters; I’m 90% sure that Mega Blaziken was the “real hint” towards Hoenn’s confirmation. Torchic’s distribution and Mega Blaziken’s reveal was supposed to hype players for Hoenn and give them a taste of what gen 6 Hoenn could be like. It’s a marketing strategy, not some intentional slap in the face or anything. Besides, Mega Blaziken was only announced before the others, I’m 99% sure Mega Sceptile and Swampert were already ‘a thing’ before and during Mega Blaziken’s release.
"Didn’t need a Mega"; That may be. Blaziken is super strong even without the boost it gets from mega evolution, but so what? It might not’ve needed the boost but neither did something like Gengar or Mewtwo. Besides it’s looking more and more like every starter is getting Megas so it had to happen eventually or folks would whine about it not getting a Mega. Again, since this is Pokemon, if you don’t like it don’t use it!
"Fire/Fighting Trend"; I will admit that all the fire/fighting types got irritating after a while and I’d love to know the reasoning behind it from someone who was there when they decided to make it a trend. That doesn’t make it Blaziken’s fault and no fire/fighting types should get hate because someone in charge decided to forego more creative type choices like we got in Gen 6 or even Gen 4. Something like this makes it seem like folks are blaming the trend on Blaziken, which is silly, and again since this is Pokemon, if you don’t like it don’t use it. Or other fire/fighting types if that’s your issue.
Speaking personally about Blaziken’s strength though I can say that a lot of younger players might find a great partner in such an OP Pokemon and find it more fun to steamroll everything that comes their way. It’s not a bad thing for a Pokemon to be so strong or to get so powerful with a Mega it might not’ve “needed”.
Okay so let’s state why people outside of the fandom hate on Beatrice Ushiromiya.
