    Questions about "Monster" (spoilers)

    Johan wanted Tenma to kill him, that's why Tenma had to survive until the end. The idea of a "perfect suicide" also means, that you don't commit actual suicide in the end, but rather get killed by someone. Ofc, this means that he had to give the killer, Tenma, a motive to kill him, and a reason to commit suicide afterwards otherwise thered still be a person who knew him - his killer. If I remember correcty --I haven't watched the series in a long time-- Johan tried to make it that a bunch of people go rampart and kill him and Tenma, but I'm not entirely sure on that one though. Again my lack of knowledge due to not having seen it in a long time, but not killing certain people who knew him wasn't a decision he wanted to make but had to do because of the circumstances - maybe these are plotholes, I can't remember but it seems unlikely. Johan is by definition not entirely consistent, purposely. Also, Johan wanted to die after his sister, how it should have been when they were shot as kids, so she had to survive too. As to why he wanted to get shot by her at the beginnning, I'd have to rewatch that scene - honestly, I think I'm gonna rewatch the series after I finished my current anime >.>

    Wish granted, but...

    Granted, but they couldn'tt write anything down, so it'd all be lost. I wish I could look into the past at my will, with being able to determin time and place, as often as I want.

    What Did You Do In Gaming Today

    EU4 is one of my favorite games! With 600h play time I'm probably an intermediate. I have a good understanding of the mechanics, I'd say I know most, but there are always new tricks to learn and some details to discover - especially when every major patch changes some things fundamentally....

    Favorite Quotes

    "Creation is an emberassing process, and dreams are emberassing as well. You can't help it, its common. But its not something you shouldn't belitter yourself over" - Kaiki, Monogatari 2nd season “Fools have a habit of believing that everything written by a famous author is admirable. For my part I read only to please myself and like only what suits my taste.” - from Candide by Voltaire (I think it was Venetian noble man who said that in the book) “Many a man has a treasure in his hoard that he knows not the worth of." - Beowulf, translation by J.R.R Tolkien

    Questions about "Monster" (spoilers)

    I haven't seen the show in along time but from what I remember: There are two Johans, one monster and one 'normal' Johan who lost to the monster personality, which is why its not brought up again - by the later half the monster is the only Johan left, I think. His monster is just pure chaotic evil that wants to kill and just because. But later he also want to commit suicide, but not by conventional standards but by killing everything and everyone who ever knew him. Think of the ending of SEL, if you've seen it - Johan believes if nobody remembers you, you are dead. In philosophy there is something called 'Idealism'. If no one is around to see something, it doesn't exist, according to idealism (very simplified, and I'm not a philosopher, so take it with a grain of salt), therefore, if no one remembers you, you cease to exist. That is/was his endgame, according - 'the perfect suicide' like in SEL, not a literal suicide. Ergo Proxy has a similar theme with "If I don't have any memories, how I can I prove I even existed?"

    To Fan Service Or Not To Fan Service?

    If the show has fanservice as an integral part of it, then I don't mind - you know what yore getting into and either watch it or don't. I probably wouldn't anymore. HotD (the Matrix boobs are the invention of the century!!), Akiba's Trib, Highschool DxD are examples of that. If the fanservice is completely out of place e.g. in a serious conversation or an action scene where things are at stake and the show usually doesn't use fan service to a great extend, then it's just annoying... Hai to Gensou no Grimgar did this and it was just annoying - a good way to spoil a otherwise great show. Then there are shows that use fanservice to show relationships between characters, characters building and sometimes for actual plot purposes which I'm fine with too. Monogatari does this pretty well.

    What is everyone currently watching? What are your thoughts!?

    Black Lagoon. For some reason I've always postpond to watch it - for solid 8 years. After 6 episodes I kinda regret not watching it earlier. It's great so far! I also started with darling in the franxx and so so far, 3 eps in, it's okay - entertaining but can't really say more about it.

    Granted, but it's so heavy, that it is impossible to carry. I wish I knew all languages, with all dialects and accents.

    Favourite characters with an infectious smile?

    Haruho Harhuahara, mischievously lovely! Hinata's just melts hearts. When she smiles, you have too! And let's not forget Kiss Shot Acerola Orion Heart Under Blade's (aka Shinobu, and the iron-blooded, hot-blooded, cold-blooded vampire ) smile.
