Antagonist

Sophia Sideshow has thoughts on flipping channels and heroism and wonders if Japanese artists and directors are puppets of the VRWC.

Cartoon Network's was the best example last night. Some anime cartoon about a guy in chitinous powered armor who is growling about how "we can just let them get away with this!" crossed against some buffoon waving a sheaf of papers in his hand smugly declaring "the conventions are clear that we can't interfere!" Meanwhile, evil robots are destroying things. The armored guy storms out, disgusted; he's the hero. You know that the hero will buck convention and do what is right. Meanwhile, the buffon spends more time attempting to undermine our hero than worrying about the evil robots.
