different people relate to different things, the way SeninKorby FEELS about a character certain character, the way they died and how their friends and loved ones reacted mat be completely different than another's.
IE: I could give 2 shits about Hiruzen's death scene or the after effects. he played a very small part in the story up to his death (But he was Hokage and he knew an assload of Jutsu... who cares he didn't progress the story). SeninKorby felt that this was pivotal.
different strokes for different folks.
Never speak in absolutes, no one is ever ABSOLUTELY right.
So basically, in your attempt to say my evaluation of a good way to "judge" these things isn't accurate, you go after my opinion
of which things, following those criteria, were the saddest? Huh?
I'm 90% sure that what NN said was based around my thoughts that deaths should be judged under two categories, not which deaths I thought were the most well done.
Never speak in absolutes...in the following scenarios:
If you are talking about things that are just plain set in stone, you can't say that the subjunctive should be necessary. There are some things that are undoubtedly true. There's a difference between refusing to accept facts and refusing to listen to people that claim their opinion is fact (assuming that it, in fact, ISN'T fact).
(BTW, the reason I feel Hiruzen's is good is because the anime did the funeral really well)
