I'd rather have Schenkopp faces Reinhard instead of Minci. Axe fight between them will be good, even better if Mittermeyer joins in.

Yeah, it could have been more dramatic without having to sacrifices most of the FPA cast. I still enjoyed watching the whole show, and has left me with a hole in my heart. I even watch Golden Wing today and it was awful. The redesigns for the characters and sets really through me off and I was disappointed to see that nothing really resolved as a movie or OVA.
>>
>>102290800
That was kinda the point tough. A huge turnaround at this situation would have been quite unrealistic

Overall, i agree tough that i found the 4th season the weakest of them
>>
>>102290622
>young admiral that tried ot betray Reuenthal
Aye, he's a total arsehole, the entire civil war could have been averted if he just reveal the truth he discovered.
But no, he have to try and gain more glory despite knowing what Reinhard do to traitors.
>>102290800
>Schenkopp faces Reinhard
Please no, how Schenkopp died is awesome already, Minci is the one who carry on Yang's dream and ideas so it make sense for him to be the one who face Reinhard.
>>
>>102291166

I can't help but have disdain for Minci.
It feels like he's utterly fucking useless.
>>
What would have happened if Yang decided to be a dictator?
>>
>>102291569
I never understand why some people refer to characters by names they barely ever get called in the show. It'd be like if I went around calling Yang 'Wen-li', it's just strange.
>>
>>102291569
He's good at everything though.Well, except dealing with girls.
>>102291756
The FPA would still exist, just a dictatorship under Yang, he'll probably defeat Reinhard aswell.
Maybe he'll even unify the universe and then step down to let the people take care of things once again.
>>
>>102291776
just as long as we know who we're talking about, the name doesn't really matter to me. For the sake of continuity, I'm using the same name >>102291166 used

>>102291816
Correct me if i'm wrong but If i remember well, by the time he actually came to prominence, Yang was gone and there was little intrigue left for him to do.
Most of the story and events were happening Imperial side.
The only thing he did that was worthwhile was meeting Reinhardt.

I don't think there's a vehicle suitable to describe LoGH.
Watching LoGH is like a crash course into political science.

Also you're expected to learn how to say your final goodbyes

>>102291931
Besides that, maybe that visit to Terraist base and shooting down ships.

He should have gotten leadership experience before taking Yang's legacy. Maybe like leading a fleet or something. That way, his position as Yang's successor could be more...legit.

>What would have happened if Yang decided to be a dictator?

They talked about it in the show endlessly. We don't even need to theorize. The theory as proposed by Yang himself would be he either would have been benevolent and given up his power at the end of his rule or become the next Rudolf von Goldenbaum, passing it on to someone else upon his death and forming a new line of 'emperors'.

Its the same basic argument against communism. Sure, one man taking over a government with good intentions to give up power once the state was strong enough is all well and nice. But what happens when the person in power becomes tainted and wants to hold onto that power? Or what happens when the man dies and the government is still in a shitty position? Civil War, political in-fighting and assassinations. You can't simply make a fully functioning government overnight. Or even in one man's lifetime.

And this doesn't even take into account stuff like assassinations or the military overthrowing you or etc which can end your reign well before your natural life.

That wouldn't happen unless his last name was Caesar though. Anyone else would just step down after their term was over.

You're on the kind of ride that gets you spoilered if you start threads like this you stupid piece of shit.
>>

Felt to me like he had to act deadpan while his actual attitude towards the situation was rather disregarding, like he was doing the whole serious father impression while thinking "those kids are so overblowing it".
>>
>>102297596
No
But he is a 25 year old virgin (through awkwardness and being distant, far from being considered unattractive) who is considered by everyone around him as a 'genius' at what he does, and has a similar set of a morals (in a way I can't really accurately put into words here). The similarities just made that entire episode hysterical to me.

Sorry for blogging.
>>
>>102290416
What? Fuck no! He did the sensible thing and let his fleet take the brunt of the casualties from the initial turnaround so that Reinhards numerically superior fleet could destroy Yangs somewhat smaller fleet. Reinhard, however, ignored, this brave and daring sacrifice for political reasons (i.e. he would probably not be given a similarly large fleet because of the nobles' antagonism.)

>>102295064
The whole Ashbey arc in Spiral Labyrinth pointed out that it would make him eligible for assassination. Between his unrivaled popularity and his military strength, the threat of an invasion by the Reinhard led Galactic Empire was already the only thing keeping him alive. Him becoming an independent power was arguably what got Yang murdered. Besides his whole shtick was that he could see it when someone else was better suited to doing something and giving them free rein.
