Anyone else feel Trigger just doesn't know what to do with Mako anymore?

During the first 12 episodes she's a very effective and funny character, but now she just seems to be there.

I get the feeling that she was supposed to die during episode 13.
>>
I told you last time, she will pull a Deus Ex on the last episode and dfeat Ragyo

She'll play a prominent role at the end, I'm sure. Though I agree I don't like it when you have a devoted sidekick that just doesn't do anything.

Ryuuko got her heart ripped out, for Mako to watch and do nothing makes no sense.

No, I get the feeling that they exactly what they will do with her and they are probably just trying to mess with us through comedy...I swear fucking Trigger is you kill her I kill you.

I honestly don't think they've known what to do with her from the start. It's been really annoying when all the action just has to stop so that Mako can get her screen time.
>>
>>102259354
Right, but they still give her screentime and an ED.

If she ain't going to do anything, don't give her screentime. It hurts her character and takes away from the show.

It really was only jarring this last episode. Every other time her HALLELUJAHS and comedic gags served some sort of purpose.

I'm glad they stopped showing her after shit got serious in the latest episode.

No she's just poorly written. She's supposed to be funny but apparently Trigger knows fuck all about writing well executed comedy scenes.

>>102259511
That doesn't mean they've totally stopped the action in its tracks and detrimented it.

What, exactly, can Mako do? This isn't the same situation when Satsuki and Ryuuko fought - Ragyo is in a completely different level.

I think Mako will stay the way she is, the loyal friend, and end up doing something important in the end. She is completely oblivious and supposedly totally normal despite all the crazy shit going on around her.
>>
>>102259618
First half of the show she was great. But now we're getting into a bit of a redundant loop with Ryuuko, Mako, and Senketsu, in which everyone says how awesome Ryuuko is and she powers up

Diminishing returns, it's not working anymore

Nothing, but Mako's never let that stop her from jumping in the fray foolishly before. It makes no sense for her to leave Ryuuko to die.

To be fair, Mako does go missing in the new episode. Maybe she went to look for a way to help. There was nothing she could do at the time.

I just googled that image because Mako reminded me of that guy in some way. I'm not from tumblr and not from /co/.

Mako was busy evacuating people at the time. I'm sure she'll show up again.

Sounds like the average KLK thread with Satsukifags to me
>>
>>102259895
No, stop. It will never happen. There is no reason for the plot to head in this direction. Nui's the one who killed Ryuko's father, Nui's the one with the other half of her father's weapon. There is a much higher chance Nui is going to be defeated by Ryuko. Satsuki has second dibs. Nui versus Mako will never, ever happen and you're all just going to have to just deal with it.

>>102260903
Nothing is wrong with the Lego Movie, or Frozen, or Gravity Falls, but much like the Katawa Shoujo General, the threads have little to do with the subject matter, instead being a collection of inflation scat fanfiction and smut
>>
>>102260832
They've had over 300 Frozen Generals that his post limit and the movie is not even 3 months old.

Lego is already at 12 itself

They don't seem to have a lot to talk about over there
>>
>>102261030
They number the General threads, which is what bugs me. /co/'s generals are not geared towards discussion, they're geared towards autism.
>>
I'm sorry I posted that Mandark, didn't want to derail completely this thread ;_; Honto gomenasai!
>>
>>102259673
Mako's never worried about powerlevels before. Not fearing anything is part of her character.
>>
>>102260832
I don't think there's nothing inherently wrong with generals, at least it's an organized way to contain shitposting to one thread at a time.

It's the fucking Tatsuya, TGWTG, John K and threads of the likes that turn it into /v/ tier board.

Also they are way too prudish for 4chan.
>>
>>102261382
There is something inherently wrong with Generals.

The only good general I can remember were Slayers Generals, and those were less Generals and more SLAYERS SUNDAY

The very concept of general threads is flawed and goes against the very idea of 4chan and imageboards.

The two main appeals to this site are anonymity and "original content", i.e. always new threads, old shit gets deleted instead of staying up for years, etc. General threads shit on both of these basic premises.

General threads are the closest thing 4chan has to stickied "threadnaughts", massive, 1000+ page threads about the same topic, the only difference between the two is that you can't access older pages of "4chan threadnaughts".

The other, far more bigger problem, is that general threads are self-perpetuating. You don't make a Katawa Shoujo General because you want to discuss KS. You make it because there's no thread about it up. Same thing about posting in general threads. If you go to a general thread - absolutely any general threads, even those who are self-perceived to be above average quality (e.g. /gsg/), you will still have a good 75% of all content in them be off-topic gibberish. Because people want to participate in discussions, but they most of the time have nothing to add on-topic. So they "banter", shitpost and circlejerk, and eventually they develop enough "familiarity" with rest of the general that they feel the need to adopt a trip so they can recognize each other more - since by this point they're only there for "funposting".

General threads are probably the worst thing to happen to 4chan in this decade, and that includes /pol/, Tumblr, Reddit, and /v/ shitting over pretty much all other boards. If moot wasn't an incompetent idiot who just got lucky ten years ago by plagiarizing a Japanese site and actually cared about the quality of the content, he would have banned the very concept years ago instead of helping it spread by creating /vg/ and allowing general threads on other boards.

Mako will get a cute scene after Ryuuko is healed and they meet up again in which Ryuuko is all "I'M A MONSTER! DON'T TOUCH ME!" and Mako hugs her and tells her "Ryuuko is just Ryuuko".

While that's true, the show's moved into a much more serious affair.

Mako can't get in the way of someone like Ragyo because she's not gonna sit and let a HALLELUJIAH happen like the other villains did.

Someone mentioned it earlier, but Mako has an almost Roger Rabbit-like plot armor because of how oblivious to danger and powerlevels, and how stupid but goodhearted she is.

Now that she's called one of the 3 protags, I'm sure she'll do something important.

Well there was that tidbit from the trigger newsletter or whatever it was about how Mako was important enough that Nakamura had to do most of the show's writing himself because no one else could seem to get her character right. Then there's the lyrics to the ED which seem to imply she's going to stand up and fight at some point.

Or maybe she'll just keep playing cheerleader, I dunno.

It's been said before in interviews, I think, but here in the preview for the next episode as well: >>102259384

I disagree. The silly, cloudy and dreamy mood of the second one makes a nice ending for the more serious off-the-wall tone of the second half.
