Why are archers always the most cool characters in fiction? and not only in anime, in movies and comics too, Legolas, Hawkeye, Bullseye, Rambo, Irvine from berserk, the glasses guy in bleach etc.
Archers appreciation thread
Lancers > Archers > Sabers > Everyone else
No this fucking meme again. The strength required to draw an English longbow was enormous. Archers are some of the most strong and physically fit warriors of their time. 0/10 you lose.
But archers can be effective a close range too, archer can keep lancer at bay with his two swords, Legolas had swords too and Hawkeye stabbed people at close range.
Bow is better because is safer and more strategic, but a good archer can get shit done at close range, while a lancer or saber can't do shit a long range.
I think it's because they're generally portrayed as cool and collected no matter what, which is both necessary for bow accuracy and a sort of natural outcome of being removed from immediate, short-range risk.
I remember him using it a lot in the first movie.
SWORDS ARE A FUCKING SECONDARY WEAPON ALL THROUGHOUT HISTORY YOU FUCKING PLEB, THE ONLY TIME SWORDS WERE PRIMARY WEAPONS WAS DURING ROMAN TIMES AND YOU KNOW HOW THAT TURNED OUT
>hurr durr archer strong and smart
Learn to read fagit, i'm not talking about strength, i'm talking about manly man charging in the battle, not playing safe and camping on a distance like a pussy.
>A manly man has to be a brute made only to die like a bitch
So are you implying that Rambo was a faggot because he preferred ranged weapons instead of chargin with a knife like a retarded?
PRIMARY WEAPONS WERE SPEARS AND LATER TRUMPETS
THEY'D BLAST EACH OTHER AWAY WITH SOUND
This thread is pretty funny, it's like reading people discuss fighting games on GameFAQs or some other shitter forum.
Charging and shouting isn't the only way to be manly and cool, being cold and collected is badass too, like when archer shoots an arrow at long distance and says some cool one-liner.
Manlyness can come in many ways and forms, like how Guts from berserk also has a bow attached to his arm.
Okay i'll admit maybe i'm being biased there because the most badass archer for me is Madoka and Godoka, that's why i said archer is more suitable as a girl's job.
Any archer can top that?
