>>13463935 Are you kidding me? In the last few episodes of the OVA he commands the remaining Iserlohn forces against all odds, rams Reinhard's imperial flagship, boards it and fights all the way into Reinhard's room just to have a chat with him.
And he does all of this without being a little bitch about it.
>>13463935 Yang was a loving guardian, even if he didn't fulfill this duty as well as he wanted. Gendo was not a loving parent. Misato tried, but couldn't do it.
Shinji never wanted to be in the military/whatever conspiracy organization NERV is. He fought and came back after running away knowing that he was the only one who could pilot the Eva. Honestly he's more similar to Yang there, take a shot every time Yang talks about retirement. Julian wanted to be a soldier.
>>13463935 >mfw I just got to the part where Yang dies. last night. That was bullshit. Complete fucking bullshit. I knew it was coming but still holy fucking shit I've never had a feeling so complicated.
>>13466589 I skipped over TNG season 1. Was Crusher particularly bad in it?
I didn't mind Julian. He was never a pain in the ass, and the few times he hulked out in rage were pretty amusing. That episode where he watches the documentary on mankind's emigration into space and the rise of the empire was pretty good.
He was pretty uncomfortable with everyone turning to him to fill in for Yang, but in the end everyone agreed that a hodgepodge quasi-functional rogue military force would be better held together by a cult of personality
>>13466267 My favorite will always be Frederick Barbarossa. >Becomes King of Germany >Marched his army through Italy right up to Rome >Gets crowned the Holy Roman Emporer by the pope >Goes crusading >Drowns attempting to ford a river.
>>13465877 Given the show we're talking about, it's definitely NOT bullshit. Yang being an important figure in history doesnt make him invulnerable, anyone can kill him.
Take JFK for example, Oswald wasnt his fated rival of fate, was an unrelated person that JFK never met. That's how this works.
>>13463935 In what way? Both serve different purposes. Shinji is the sole MC of Evangelion and his character is about a realistic(or attempts to) reaction to end-of-the-world shenanigans and him being the chosen one, among other things. LOGH, as I explained above, doesnt work that way.
Julian was an exposition receptor for Yang and a character device to show how war isnt actually a matter of honor or such and the importance of defending ideas instead of people, among other things. Not to mention he's not the MC, or at least not the only one.
>>13467288 The U.S. president Zachary Taylor is good for that as well.
>hero of the Mexican War >captured Monterrey in 3 days >opposed the expansion of slavery on principle despite being a Southern slaveholder himself >died from stomach problems after eating too much cherries and iced milk
