Would you forgive him?


After an apology like that? Yeah, I would.

13th Dec 2022, 6:31 AM

Well, yeah... I would forgive him. Unless he repeats this mistake again, then, bye.

Keep in mind, Warrick is a kid and a trauma victim. That's going to lead to... a lot of bad judgement calls.

13th Dec 2022, 8:19 AM

No they won’t.

I'd forgive him because Warrick genuinely has some personal baggage that he needs to work through. Primarily his toxic Masculinity which is as a result of his own violent upbringing and conditioning. Stuff like that is very hard to deal with.

Toxic masculinity as well as a toxic fixation of winning and being the best at everything. I feel a lot of anime especially tournament themed anime tends to send this toxic message.

13th Dec 2022, 10:08 AM

well... I am uncertain whether I agree with this statement or not without knowing which tournament anime you mean.

In Yu Yu Hakusho for example, the main tournament of the show literally happens to its main cast because the main characters are forced into it on the pain of death by literal demons, and winning is quite literally the only way any one of them is getting out alive. Nothing is glamourized about it, it's pure survival for the main cast. other tournaments in animes likewise depending on context depict tournaments in a far more grim and decidedly unglamorized context. My anime experience has left me with very little experience with anime tournaments that I could say fits your "toxic masculinity/toxic competition" descriptor. without more detail on what exactly you had in my mind, basically, it depends upon the anime. i feel that any anime that had actually care and thought put into it typically won't be a good example of what you are talking about.

You bring up a good point so I should elaborate. I find that Dragon Ball promoted a lot of toxicity when it came to competitiveness. I mean, Goku even put his own son Gohan in danger just to make him level up as a Super Saiyan. It rubbed me the wrong way and while Goku did not promote toxic masculinity, I find a lot of 80s North American heroes did. I hope this clears the misunderstanding.

14th Dec 2022, 8:50 AM

hmmm... yeah, I can see that. thanks for the clarification.

14th Dec 2022, 1:35 PM

No problem. I figured it was just a misunderstanding and I even admit that not all tournament anime are toxic. Most are not, but some do take it too far.

14th Dec 2022, 1:56 PM

I would forgive him as he is learning, and that last slot I find it funny that instead of them being bigger as he is embarrassed that they are still smaller and his face being red marches his hair almost.

14th Dec 2022, 12:28 AM

They will eventually, but he will have to realize that the failure wasn't just in not winning

16th Dec 2022, 5:23 AM

Life's full of harsh lessons.
