  1. What's new in this club
  2. I do not believe Light was in the right, at least not in the end. If he had completed what he was doing, he would have been the only criminal left on earth, making the biggest hypocrite of all. I do however believe how he started was just, he killed criminals and only criminals and as he said, someone had to do it, he took it upon himself as his burden and he carried it out very well up until he decided he was God. Honestly, I didn't have much of a problem with him at first, yes I would not kill unless it were to protect someone else and I didn't see the point in him killing already jaile
  3. I think that kira went too far with his so called justice. He himself would have been the last evil person if his plan had been completed (as ryuk once said). I think that the real moral of the show is that no human should have that kind of power it will drive them mad. But L is also wrong. I think if you want real justice delivered you have to step out the barriers a little bit - batman is a good example of someone who steps out the barrier and gets the job done even though things can get hectic sometimes. I think that its impossible for complete justice to exist and no person can carry out
  4. Sorry, was on a hold while I was reading a book. This week, we have on our plate NHK ni Youkoso: A psychological dramedy, which follows the story of a 22-year boy named Tatsohiru satou who is a hikikomori and unable to face the society. While a bit slow story and some good comedy in punches in between at some points, it doesn't ended the way I would've hoped and expected for which I eagerly waited for while watching till end. It raises some questions like what is it that make sometime a person avoid the society to extreme and live in it's small world of it's own. I have been a h
  5. Do watch death note too @rudilla whenever u find time. It's among top three of the most loved anime on all time best anime list worldwide. has a rating of 9.3 around even after a near million votes.
  6. Your reply is very clearly developed, I understand what you meant and it's indeed true, I had not thought about that, but it's correct that terrible crimes dissuade people from committing worse, at least generally, so in certain situations you are right.
  7. I am sorry for late reply. I was thinking on what you wrote and took me some time to get my views organized. I felt the same on the point that why should one bringing chaos should live. But when I thought deeply about it, I felt there could be other side to this also. Doesn't the one bringing chaos helps improve humankind altogether ? Everytime someone commits a crime, it sure cause a hurt and loss to people whose damage is irreparable. But then, there is also a chance to understand human behaviour through someone who commits crime. It tells the sources of vices coming in people and ways
  8. wow, interesting plot....... will watch it. Sorry i didn't got any notification of this thread I don't know why. couldn't find details related to travel by satellite and world peace on internet although. But it seems promising to watch and find something new.So, added to watch-list. This plot reminded of fullmetal alchemist in which some people justified killing of some people to create philosopher's stone and that the protagonist (our hero) is totally against it even when he need the stone for his brother badly. However, it doesn't focus on world peace mainly. however, there ar
  9. That's right, I'll make sure to watch it soon, it really sounds intriguing as story.
  10. Hey everyone, I am making threads on whatever series I watch and views on what I felt while watching the series reagarding it's philosophy or message conveyed. Given that I have a limit on number of series I have watched which I will keep adding here, I request other members to open threads on other series also which they found similarly interesting personally so that I (and everyone else) may find new series and learn about them by watching or discussing them here. I am expanding the scope of this thread from anime series to even hollywood tv series for your conviniences (but I will tr
  11. thanks for your excellent views @rudilla.......... your valuable mature response is always awaited from my side...... yeah, the butterfly effect you talked about is what's shown very beautifully in steins;gate in which okabe (protagonist) thinks changing past slightly won't make much difference in present untill he realizes that even the slightest of changes can erase the existence of some of people around him. So, your view in this regard, each and every word are absolutely spot on. It has been brilliantly shown in the series how if time travel becomes possible, time will become a w
  12. You should watch it's not a bad series it reminded me of Black Lagoon.
  13. That sounds to me like a madman, a madwoman in this case, definetley some kind of psychopath.
  14. Around 700,000 people would die and she believes she would be preventing future wars. She's also arms dealer and that how she funds her ambitions so she indirectly killed thousands of people.
  15. It depends on what she's accomplishing by saving lives, from what exactly and how many?
  16. In the anime Jormungand the main character objective is to save the earth and all that live on it is by taking away the ability to travel by air Via Satellite. But the way she will achieve this by sacrificing the lives of many in the process. In her eyes she is doing a great deed but some see it as mass murder. What is your thoughts on the way she is doing it.
  17. I'll also think about watching this one, to answer the question, this is a topic I've already thought about not so long ago. These are the facts: You are who you are in this very moment thanks to (or because of) all the events which happened to you during all your life so far, which means that if you even slightly modified one of them, it could have made a really big difference in the long scale. It's the butterfly effect, a tiny change in your life can make a huge difference in the future, even decisive of your own fate and your personality, how it will evolve and how it will remain in t
  18. Steins:gate, a series which is personally one of the closest to my heart, which presents a simple question to you; Do you really need to change your past in order to correct your mistakes or fulfill your wish OR should you accept whatever happens to you in your life as a matter of fate and live accordingly. The story in steins: gate has raised this question very eloquently in which the protagonist okabe rintarou accidentally invents a time machine which can send message back to past and thus modifying decisions in order to correct the future which is the present. But he does all this only
  19. yea, it just has 13 episodes. so 4-5 hours of mini marathon will be good.....
  20. Thank you for your opinion. I'll consider watching it then, if it's that well made. I'll make sure to.
  21. quite a nice one @rudilla......especially loved the last part..... it really just felt like someone deeply thought something in mind. I believe there is more in your subconscious mind than what came out in those lines, so will wait till u spill out some more next time...... will add some more angles in this discussion later...... elfen lied was a good series only when you can understand what is in it which is not shown explicitly.For a normal person, it will just be a regular watch without helping him getting what it wanted to reveal...... so a very nice applaud for the cr
  22. That's correct, you nailed it. And interestingly enough, when I was thinking about this a few minutes ago, I got inspired by it to write a poem about it, if you're interested in reading it, it's on my blog.
  23. well, while i agree with many points in your lines, i am still not sure whether we could leave anything to chance. For some reasons, i cudn't understand fully ever why it's difficult to accommodate the differences among each other. They fight over religious differences, cultural differences, physical and even colour differences. But they forget, all these differences emerged after the origin of humanity itself and not the reverse, i.e. humans, when started on earth had similarities in all aspects but differences emerged due to various external and internal influences to improve the adaptibilit
  24. So if I understood this correctly, this person made many populations mad at them for telling the truth. Humans, like many wild animals can be either automatically rivals when they spot another of their kind, or try to approach and work together. With animals, this is much simpler than with humans, since they will only get around better with others close to them, like the group they've time with, or with partners they've had in the past for lone animals. Human behaviour in this aspect is much more complex, most of the time a person will decide if another is similar enough to them enough to be c
  25. Elfen lied, one of finely crafted art-work, which raised question on how do you see a person different than you or on odds with the accepted societal standards, norms and values. Whether you hate the difference or embrace it by heart is decided on basis of many factors which could range from threat to your culture to threat to your survival and presents a big dilemma, of which the most important is resolving the conflict between humanity and conciliation with other kind of people with differences. The difference could range from biological, sociological, cultural or any other perspectives you
