Just for the record, I never thought there were any yaoi vibes. The yaoi deal just ain't my bag.m4rc0 wrote:So, at first everybody was complaining about how yaoi the show seemed to be. Now people are bashing the lead female and loving the partnership (or should I say bromance) of the two guys...
Also for the record, I don't hate Akiko because she's not a "sex apple". (In fact, I do think she's kinda sorta cute in the VERY rare moments she's not being a craven douche) I hate her because she's bossy, selfish, stupid, and contributes NOTHING to the group besides being the one hostage you do NOT want to save.Kogashi wrote:Think the main reason people are bashing her because she doesn't have any sex apple that they could find seeing how even if she's 20, she looks like she's just entering high school (or something, I dunno I'm not good at reading what ages are suppose to look like)... That and let us face it, the 'fans' are never satisfied. Even if she leaves the show they'll just complain about her leaving, or who ever replaces her... We are a silly, fickle lot.
Granted, I haven't seen as much Kamen Rider as most other folks here. (I didn't really get into KR until Decade) but I've seen enough to form a basic opinion of the KR leading ladies.
Shizuka - Maybe she didn't serve much of a purpose as takenoko claimed, but at least she was supportive and was somewhat pleasant to be around.
Hana from Den-O - Aside from being cute in both her adult and child forms (It's because of her that I am now a sucker for fluffy skirts), she too was supportive and actually gave a crap about people. Plus, it was fun watching her smack the Imagin around whenever they acted up. :p
Natsumi/Natsumikan/Natsumelon from Decade - Natsumi is probably my favorite. Aside from being the hottest out of the bunch, she has balance. While she's strong and independent, she's also honest and genuinely caring of our heroes. Plus, Laughter Pressure Point FTW.
Mari from Faiz - The only KR girl I hate more than Akiko. But that's another rant for another day.
So yeah, at this point in time, my hate for Akiko is genuine, and if she were to leave or die next ep, I would NOT miss her.
But let's keep in mind that this is only the second ep, and she still has PLENTY of time to redeem herself.
/end unnecessarily long rant.
