Discuss: What Anime Would You Live In?
"That's impossible!" yelled Frieza, as Super Saiyan Bossman revealed he had been fighting with weighted wrist bands the whole time. SS Bossman laughed and, with a single wrist band-free punch, knocked Frieza into orbit, where he would spend the rest of his life spinning helplessly. The planet was saved and over ten thousand otaku were freed. The otaku, along with Goku, Gohan and Vegeta, threw Adam a big party. Woohoo!
When a fan fiction author inserts themselves into a story as a beloved lead character, that character is often referred to as a "Mary Sue." While there's nothing wrong with Mary Sues per se (popular and critically acclaimed books like Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey use them), their presence in fan fiction is generally discouraged by the larger fandom community. Especially when this new character exists solely as a love interest for an existing series character.
Let's have some fun with this week's discussion question. Describe your ideal Mary Sue situation. What anime would you live in. What role would you take. What character(s) would you love.
