First of all, I can’t believe I am defending Miku, since she is far from my fav VB, considering how hard to use she is. And for this time being, I am speaking of a VB that, as for the now, I haven’t purchased. Also, English is not my native language, so please, bear that in mind.
Voice is not “kawaii” enough like V2:
This reason is dumb. Why? Because I am not sure about what VB they are referring. You see, Miku V3 is an umbrella term for eight VBs: English, Original, Sweet, Dark, Soft, Light, Vivid and Solid. Original is pretty much the same voice than her V2 version, just in a higher quality. And let’s be honest here, you can’t really get a lot cuter than Soft and Sweet. This is an example of that last statement. It’s so sweet it can harm your teeth. If you don’t like the other voicebanks you don’t need to use them. In my modest opinion, the most mature sounding one, Dark, is the most nice sounding one
Mature/ugly box art that isn’t “desu” enough
Hello, have you seen the cute image that tops this defense? How can you say she is less cute than her v2 version?
.Also, if you are talking about the English VB design, the only thing I can say about it its that the color combination is really beautiful, even if she is less “anime” than her original incarnation. I actually like her more like that, but I am not big into stereotypical anime designs.
Aims towards America/Americanized her
Yes, because one in eight voicebanks contains English phonemes and I am sure America is the only country in the world that speaks English. Sure. Why not.
Her demos aren’t even good
Ok, this is a thing of personal taste now but have you listened t o Happy Rainy Days? And if you didn’t like the original demos, here are some song recommendations for you:
That’s it, my defense. I hope I didn’t bore you too much.
Okay, even though Chi-Chi isn’t my “all time” favorite female character of Dragonball Z (3rd favorite female DBZ character, honestly), I wanted to defend her from all the backlash she gets from fans of this show.
Alright, I know that a lot of people hate Candace because she can be bratty and somewhat crazy, but keep in mind that she’s constantly overshadowed by her brothers, who can create wonderful things and get love by everyone (she once said that she often feels ignored by others because of them). There are other times that she says she tries to bust her brothers so she can save them from dangerous stuff, and that is mixed for her desire to bust them because they can get off with everything thanks to the Mysterious Force (Doofenshmirtz’s inventions and now we can say she has a point), and, let’s be serious, everyone would feel frustration by it. Her mother never believe her affirmations, sometimes thinking she’s crazy, others taunt her because she likes Ducky Momo (and I can feel how she feels), Suzy hates her because she’s Jeremy’s girlfriend, she’s often been put in a lot of trouble… Life is not easy for her. Now, I admit she has flaws like a real person (in this at least she’s more “normal” than her brothers and Isabella that are perfect in various aspects) but she’s actually has her merits: she has a lot of energy, she never gives up in things she feels she has to do, she can be very nice, loves Jeremy with all her heart, there are times she is openly supportive to her brothers and in the movie she uses her busting misfortune to save the day. She’s not my favourite character (not my least favourite either), but it’s unfair to say she’s a terrible character and forget she actually has merits beneath her quirks. And it’s been proven that in the end she marries Jeremy, she’s got 2 sons and a daughter and she’s matured in a maternal woman.
Okay I’m not really surprised this character is in this blog but how you can hate this cute little shit.
(But im surprised he’s the only character here and not Sharla. Not that I hate her, I like her character but I expected to see her here)
Okay let’s begin:
That’s not a valid reason to hate a character, it’s not like he chose to have that voice okay? Okay.
"Speaks in fractured English"
Yeah, he does, but I remember many nopon talking like this too. Hate every one of them. (Personally I think they’re cute like this)
Also you can change the voices to japanese.
"Doesn’t contribute to the story"
Yes, he doesn’t contribute very much to the main plot compared to other characters but I have to remind that he’s one of the most useful characters in the game. He’s very versatile, has a good variety of moves, and is the only decent healer besides sharla. Some of the things he can do are:
-Cause many debuffs and status ailments (stackable if I remember right) to enemies and one of them specific to mechon.
-He can fill the party gauge with one of his arts.
-He can steal not only items but EXP, AP and stat boosts
-He can feign death so enemies don’t notice him and if they attack riki when he does this, he won’t suffer damage.
"Virtually no character development"
Well he had his character pretty much stablished since the beginning. Also, when you are on mechonis’s fallen arm, he has a moment when he actually shows he’s not always comic-relief. He shows he is capable of seeing subtle things he doesn’t look like he can and cares about the group.
I personally didn’t think he was obnoxious. Maybe he says many things outside the point on the conversation but he’s caring and he doesn’t do anything out of malice, so…
Everything said. It’s been a long time since I played Xenoblade and I haven’t seen most of the optional scenes so maybe im not so qualified to defend him :v
To be honest the movie itself isn’t really my favourite nor is Melody my favourite fictional character, however I feel like she deserved some defending.
She’s called “a cheap copy of Ariel”
Her and Ariel share similar traits, she’s her daughter, it’s to be expected, but a cheap copy I feel is a bit unfair. Daughters can be like their moms sometimes, it’s not a cheap, lazy way to write her character, that’s something to be expected of when you write characters as children of others, there will be similarities.
This one I also find unfair. First off it’s not her fault that she’s a princess born with everything she could want, well almost. She’s spoiled, but it’s not like she asked for a princess life. And as well I don’t see why she’s considered a brat. She had every right to be upset towards Ariel for lying to her her whole life. Melody had every right to know what’s going on since it involved HER. Being caged from something she loved cause her mom couldn’t just TELL her what was going on. Yeah sure it’s a sad thing when you have to tell your child that an evil woman is after you but it definitely would have protected her better. Melody’s not at fault for wanting to know the truth nor does it make her a brat, she had every right to know and Ariel and Eric had no right to keep such a secret from her.
Shiny pokémons are identical to normal one except for theirs differents coloration. They are rare, and such, people in the fandom love them… Most of them, anyway.
Let’s go down with the defense
People shouldn’t get excited(….):This is quite a poor argument because it basically tell that you have no right to be excited about something that you worked for or just finded randomly. It’s like telling someone "no you shouldn’t get excited that you won one million dollars at the lottery". Would you do that? No. that’s the whole point. You are only telling people that they shouldn’t be excited for something…. Which is my second point of the ounter-argument
(….)because they’re not rare anymore: As someone who consider herself to be a “shiny hunter” someone who tries to hunt for shinies, this is bullshit. Shinies are still rare to find and the only notable decrease instaured in this generation is the fishing chain. While this make some pokémons more easy to find shiny, this is still a long procedure, can still fail and only affect the pokémon found while fishing.All the others way to make hunting easier were instaured in generation 4. To end this point, I’ll remember you that the chances of finding a shiny is 1/8192 (except if some methods)
anyone with more then one is a Mary Sue: I’ll guess there that you talk about Ocs there. About this point, I strongly disagree with you. They could just have been lucky, like any players, or simply have a reason to have them, like actually hunting them like some players do. Having more than one shiny doesn’t make a automatic Mary Sue, the personnality and how the characther is played is what make a Mary Sue.
Color pallets are often ugly: While this is a question of personal taste, I think that yes, some are ugly, but there’s so many of them that are beautiful or even more beautiful than theirs normal one. I can’t further there, because this is about personnal taste and you have your own, but everything here is about your opinion and people have differents opinion and taste, and so will likes shinies color pallets that you don’t and hate some you like.
people obssess over them: They are rare, take times to get and almost all of them have a extremely color pallets, of course we love them and, like anything rare, obssess about it. But, reminder, not all the fandom is like that, so you can have peace if you don’t go in the parts that does.
often hacked: I hear more often about people complaining about hacks that people that actually hacks. Hacking to get a shiny is theirs choice, and most people actually don’t do it. And anyway, even hacked, it’s a shiny and it’s cool man. To end this point, I’d like to remminder you that currently, it’s impossible to hack Pokémon X and Y, so all shinies in thoses are legits
more people having shiny pokemon are killing the uniqueness of them: Or, alternatively, more people get interested in them, so tries to get them. They are still rare, so more peoples having them doesn’t kill theirs uniqueness at all. It only make it possible to have more interaction between onwers and permet more shiny trades! They are still rare and theirs uniqueness is far from being killed.
waste of time: Its stll a question of personal taste, so just re-read the colors pallets point and you’ll get my opinion. Or, if you don’t want, have this phrase: It isn’t a waste of times to some people and it’s all about your opinion of the matter.
often scams: This is almost the same point as the hacked ones. I won’t take any more times to re-explain this.
whole teams of shinies must be hacked. Alternatively, the person worked extremely hatrd to get them all and is proud of them, so they use them for battle! And there’s no current way to hack X and Y, so no teams, as of yet, constitued of only shinies are hacked. Yes, they may be hacked, but don’t generalise it.
So that’s my Defense about Shiny pokémon. WIth that, I Bid you all Farewell and have a good day
Remember, my strong, female characters: never show weakness, not even for a moment, or the fandom will rip you apart like sharks drawn by the blood from a single cut, and then they will begin to devour each other.
I know Jaune got some hate because his “character arc” was longer than some fans wanted, as well as the lack of attention to the “main” cast, specifically Blake and Yang. Before I start my defense, I want to say this: Team JNPR is not the “B” Team, but the other “A” team. Meaning that focus is going to be on them almost as much as it’s going to be on Team RWBY. This is especially true of Jaune, considering he is the team’s leader.
Yes, he may be the designated Butt Monkey and Comic Relief, but that hardly makes him annoying. He’s only annoying in a sense that he didn’t really know what the students of Beacon should normally know (such as a landing strategy and his Aura) and that he hit on Weiss once, but that was early on in the first half of Season 1, and very little character development had been made at that point.
From a viewer standpoint, he was annoying because he had several episodes that focused solely on him, instead of any of the RWBY girls (especially Blake and Yang, who has had little to know character development at that point), but that is not the character’s fault. That was a choice of Monty and the other members who are working on RWBY, who decided that he needed his backstory known before anything else of plot-relevance happened.
"Weak" / "Coward"
Weak, in a fighting sense? Yes, he is what some would consider weak. However, he was put into a leadership position for a reason, and that was his ability to stand in the face of danger and do what needed to get done. I am, of course, referencing the episode Players and Pieces where Team RWBY and Team JNPR went up against the Nevermore and the Death Stalker respectively. Yes, Ruby had an active role in her battle, but Jaune was able to take leadership and band his team together in order to kill the Death Stalker, even though his involvement was little to none. If he were weak or a coward, he wouldn’t have even bothered. He would have run off, leaving the three to fend for themselves.
"Was a jerk to Pyrrha when she tried to help him" / "Cheated and lied to get into Beacon"
Yes, he was jerkish, but it was a matter of pride to him. The men in his family had been great warriors, and he wanted to (it may have even been expected of him) be the same. But he wasn’t as strong nor as skilled as them, so he did what he thought was best for him to gain that strength and skill: Go to one of the best Hunter schools in Vale. But he couldn’t do that due to his lack of skill. So he snuck his way in. He just finished telling Pyrrha this, who asks if he wants help training, and he tells her no.
Why? Because he thought he needed to do it on his own. He needed to prove that it was by his own hand that he could be a warrior. Like he said himself, he didn’t want to be “saved”. Jaune wanted to know that he could live up to his family’s crest (as seen on his collapsible shield) without any outside help.
Am I saying it was okay he cheated his way in? No. Am I saying it was okay that he treated Pyrrha the way he did? Absolutely not. But I understand why he did it.
And be honest. Would Ozpin have let him stay at Beacon if he didn’t possess some sort of raw skill or power? I guess we’ll just have to find out as the seasons progress.
Hello again people. I’m here to defend another thing in the Pokemon Franchise. Wasn’t going to do this, but… why not?
People shouldn’t get excited because they’re not rare anymore
Actually, they are still rare. They are more common now, but they are still pretty rare. I mean someone like me hardly ever finds shinies these days and is too impatient to deal with the Medusa method and stuff. It takes a long time to hatch a shiny or find one wild. The loopholes are just strategies to find them easier.
anyone with more then one is a Mary Sue
With that logic, those who catch legendaries are ALSO Mary Sues, right? But nobody bashes legendaries. It’s weird how we call trainers Mary Sue’s but maaan, I’m such a shitty OC in a Pokemon game. We have to follow a certain standards to be an acceptable trainer. It’s not like we can raise whatever Pokemon we want.
color pallets are often ugly
I feel the same way for some, but that isn’t a justification to hate them. Someone people love the lime green ones, some do not. But really, you aren’t forced to use a shiny Espeon or something if you don’t want to. Plus, they are rare after all. If you hate them that much, then trade them for something that you really want. I don’t know what else I can tell you.
people obssess over them
So what?? Man, I shouldn’t obsess over my shiny Flygon that I first randomly found as a shiny Trapinch even though I LOVE FLYGON TO DEATH. AND IT’S A SHINY THAT I ALWAYS WANTED. Okay then.
True. But also false. You can find them without hacking. Have something against those who hack them, not the Pokemon if you have such a problem with hacking.
more people having shiny pokemon are killing the uniqueness of them
Really? I haven’t noticed. Some people have better luck than others and I surely think those who have a hard time finding them or never even found one before find them very unique.
waste of time
Depends on the person. Some people have fun with these kind of things because it motivates them to find a shiny that they always dreamed of having like a shiny Eevee for example. Plus remember folks, you can find shinies randomly without using the methods. Keep that in mind.
What do you mean by “scams”. I suppose you are talking about how hacked Pokemon that get traded can fuck people over by messing up their games. (Rumored in Gen 6 about wonder trading). I guess I can see the point of that reason.
whole teams of shinies must be hacked
It seems that way because they went too far with it. Not always though. (Most of the time, it’s hacked) I hate it too when people do that honestly, but that’s just us, isn’t it?
I’m not forcing you to like them. You don’t want to use them? That is fine. If you do, that is fine to. I don’t understand the hate. You simply don’t need to bother with them at all if you don’t want to. I mean if you don’t find value to them and randomly find them, you can always trade it for something you do want or give it to a friend.
I both don’t prefer shines and somewhat do. I don’t necessarily hunt for them, but if I find them randomly, I get very happy.
I think this is based off of someone’s point of view.
Just remember though. You shouldn’t make someone less of a trainer than you are because of what they like to do with their own game. I’m not speaking for those who hack. But whatever, they want to hack and mess up their game. That’s their own problem. Unless they try messing you over by trading you a hacked Pokemon to cause you to have mystery eggs, then it’s a justification that affects you. And if that does happen to you, I feel bad for you. When it comes to those possible things…be cautious about what you are up against. Because you can get something that will mess up your game if you are not careful.
