Quote from: Hydra009 on January 24, 2020, 10:38:30 PMThe power of friendship one really bugs me. Logically, both sides of the conflict will be at the peak fighting strength at the very beginning and they'll chip away at each other until someone loses. Whoever's losing at first will likely ultimately lose.But that's not very dramatic, is it?Imo, there are only a few believable ways to have a come-from-behind victory. LOTR did it with unexpected reinforcements. Some shows do it with a previously unused superweapon or forbidden technique. Soul Eater and Seraph of the End did it with the protagonists resorting to harmful powerups that can kill/corrupt the wielder. Babylon 5 (brilliantly imo) did it with an unexpected change of heart by the antagonists, enabling the clearly losing side to "win" by default.All of them work in their own way, but they all feel really cheap in a way, like the characters are not succeeding on their own merits but only through some stroke of good fortune or external aid.

The english voice actors are so great and do such an amazing job.Hearing the japanese actors speak broken english during moments that they are supposed to come across as badass, however, just doesn't work.
