Who does it better in the art of killing, /a/?

I would have to say it's a tie between Urobutcher/Martin/Isayama.
>>
>facebook tier maymay shit
Nah, fuck off.
>>
Tomino killed the entire universe in Be Invoked.
>>
>>100620788
Urobutcher's deaths are actually meaningful and/or significant.
>>
>>100621010
I think Isayama can potentially outdo him.
>>
Isayama looks more feminine than the HP bitch.

Who's that on the top?

Out of the mentioned autors, GRRM clearly wins for killing the most people (books, not series)
also for killing the book 1 main protagonist
>>
>>100621540
JK Rowling

There has actually barely been any important character deaths in SnK. You can't beat depressed Tomino though, you just can't.

I'd like to see Isayama have whole space colonies gassed.

Urobuchi doesnt kill enough characters to make him seem out of the ordinary.

He is however a master at suffering.

Still doesn't top V Gundam or Ideon. Of course the deaths become laughable after a while.
>>
Tomino wins for making the majority of his deaths just happen. Lalah's long form death is a rarity in Tomino series.

Everyone else makes their character deaths over dramatic.
>>
>>100623844
In both shows everyone died. In V Gundam a bunch of characters that appeared 1 episode before died. We don't even see Uso's father die, just leaves the bridge and that's it. The only deaths of note in V Gundam were Uso's mum, Odelo and Oliver.

Urobuchi is small time compared to him.

It's not just killing them but how you kill them and by stupid little shit that make the entire house of cards turn to rubble.
>>
>>100624203
This.

In fact, the bodycount was low considering it takes place in a fucking war.
>>
SnK hasn't killed anyone important, meaningless side characters.

Now that it's popular the author said he is changing his writing to appease the masses of retards. Becoming popular literally ruined the series.

Let's hope to god that this bullshit doesn't ever happen to Terra Formars.

>Who does it better in the art of killing
Since the art of killing goes beyond the number killed, the answer is obviously Hiroaki Samura.

Isayama has killed like 2 characters that matter.

Killing off your entire cast has no impact when you've already done it a dozen times already and they just go 'guess we'll just have to do better next time!'.
>>
Isayama has killed no one of importance
Tomino is king.

That VN has top notch suffering and character deaths.

>killing anybody that matters
He bothers to actually kill some of the extraneous characters and people act like it's revolutionary. At least Gen and GRRM kill main characters, and GRRM kills the ones you thought for sure were safe. He seems to delight in betraying your hopes.
>>
Tomino might be good at mass killing off characters but I've come to see GRRM as the one who does it better, yeah he doesn't do it en masse but its more the way that he does the killing off. I mean yeah Be Invoked kills off the whole fucking universe but its when the villians never get their just desserts that make GRRMS more bitter, that and they way he knows just to kick your teeth in with a curbstomp on some of those deaths.

Worst part is, he isn't even into death overdrive yet. His next book is supposed to be even more gut wrenching.
>>
>>100636073
because he's not actually killing people, and making up Elpe Ples 1-100000 into lolicadavers isn't actually criminal.

He was hardly meaningless. Well, maybe he himself was, but his death was important.
