    Oh, you mean how you disrespect everyone's opinion in the BvS thread or frankly any thread in GD? Get off your high horse man.

    Lol Hordakfan does what now?

    Anyhow yeah I agree although I loved The Wolverine's design for the Robot Silver Samurai (Big Surprise on a Transformers forum) I hated how it wasn't Harada piloting it, it was just some old man who wasn't even in the comics and then worst of all Harada was in the movie yet he wasn't a mutant, wasn't a samurai, wasn't in a relationship with Viper he was just there to be a foot soldier which really pissed me off as a fan of The Silver Samurai.

    And everything from Days of Future Past has been a disappointment using solely the Last Stand cast (Because that went so well last time) for the future team, no Azazel or Banshee, Fox behaving like X2 (A good movie imo) doesn't exist due to lack of Nightcrawler, yet seems to love X3 for killing off Jean and Cyclops. I usually just rant in the Days of Future Past thread to show people they shouldn't defend Fox for everything and act like they have done no wrong.

    Anyhow do you read any of the current books?

    It's so funny to see people rally to the defense of Fox's movie decision making.

    Cool, thanks! I'm not going to wait for the 2014 one, though I will definitely be watching it as soon as possible. I've always been interested, but the news of a 2014 anime just pushed me over the edge into watching it.

    So yeah, thanks again.

    Hey, do you have any recommendations for getting into Sailor Moon? Manga? Anime? Anime dub? I'm doing an anime/manga rush and I've never actually seen anything Sailor Moon related

    Suddenly, I realize you meant a MMORPG. Which increases the awesome factor of your suggestion by a hundredfold. The only thing working against such a concept is the fact that it would appear to cheapen the value of cyborgs by making them a dime a dozen (while we're on the subject of numbers, I'll address your musings on the matter by theorizing that the SWA kids probably number no more than twenty, tops). But dude. CYBORG ARMIES.

    There haven't been any hints of any animation studio poised to adapt the remaining manga material into a third season and beyond, although I'm positive that it'll be picked up someday. Can't say I'd be too thrilled though, as the direction the story took after season two's arc left me severely disinterested. This was in no small measure due to the fact that issues such as Henrietta's past will remain mysteries unless enterprising individuals among adapting studios decide to flesh these enigmas out, as they did with Elsa.

    New girl's name is Beatrice, whose frustrating lack of personality often makes me wonder why she was even introduced, aside from a need to showcase that the cyborgs are capable of 'sniffing out' explosives and other munitions (possibly even bio-weapons and radiation, some among the fandom have theorized). Sadly, a number of other characters of her ilk pop up down the road - additions who seem to serve no true purpose, and who could have been omitted in favor of further developing the core cast.

    Dude... a Gunslinger Girl RPG where you could create your own character and go on missions around the world? I'd be all over that like white on rice, given my fanon work with OCs and stories involving international incidents. Agreed that a rail shooter doesn't do Gunslinger Girl justice; it just seems such a... low-brow medium to tell a Gunslinger Girl story, as compared to the intelligent approach that the series takes with regards to its subject matter.

    Fanfic is such a splendid way of flexing your imaginative muscles. My approach to writing such stories, however, is one where I create events and characters that can plausibly fit into the original storyline's gaps, without altering the canonical tale's flow. Nearly all my Gunslinger Girl stories are set between the first and second season, and then usually between episodes.

    Take your time; we'll be right here to welcome you when you're ready. I'd be keen to know where in season two you're at now.

    Interesting you should mention defecting - such a scenario actually formed the basis of the Gunslinger Girl video game. One of the handlers (Ernesto, a new guy created specially for the game) wound up absconding with his cyborg, intending to sell her to the enemy, who wanted to take her apart and see what made her tick. The clueless Pia, not knowing her mentor's true intentions, tagged along with him solely out of loyalty.

    And man oh man, your talk of other countries and terrorists creating their own cyborgs tells me you'd fit right into our fandom. We've actually done a fairly extensive job of fleshing out the Gunslinger Girl universe, throwing in enemy cyborgs, foreign cyborg allies and so much more. I was the first to start that trend, creating a Mossad-run equivalent to the Social Welfare Agency whose primarily male cyborgs assist the girls during a mission to the Middle East. Since then, we've had cyborgs aligned with MI6, the CIA and many more besides - all Agency allies. As far as enemy cyborgs are concerned, I've got a mind to have the People's Liberation Army come up with their own program, and other writers among us have come up with a number of interesting and deadly boys and girls aligned with assorted terrorist organizations - the best creation so far is a particularly lethal young man created by a friend of mine for his pretty damn good Full Metal Panic/Gunslinger Girl crossover.

    Where canon is concerned, however, the closest we'll get to an enemy cyborg is Pino. He's quite formidable an opponent, but I don't like him as a character and think he's a one-dimensional little shit. There was speculation at one point among the fan community that he could've been an Agency test subject who escaped, which would explain his apparently superhuman abilities. But alas, you're right - he's just a highly trained individual with no enhancements.

    The Agency have well and truly won Rico over, to the point where she was willing to kill her new friend and carried the act out. You can see her experience a twinge of regret after the event, where she sheds a tear while lying in bed, but it lasts for but a moment, rapidly overcome by her thoughts of how the Agency has given her what she always dreamed of - a strong, healthy body. Utterly terrifying.

    As you mention, one of Gunslinger Girl's weaknesses is that not enough time is dedicated to world-building. Many issues remain unexplained, more than twelve volumes into the whole storyline, and it doesn't appear that they'll ever be dealt with. It's an attractive situation, though, for those among us who are keen to speculate and fill in the blanks ourselves.
