    Wow that last month just flew by. Only three matches left. I'm worried about prelim #31. I like Cindry, but the first four characters seem to again be the most popular.

    Yes, the last thing I want to say is, I don't call Akainu a good guy, and neither a bad guy. Good and Bad are subjective notions, you know. The action itself is neither good or bad, objectively, but defined as good or bad by human subjective belief. "Don't care if people die" and "want people to die" are two different things.
    I just post it here, no comment:

    Unabridged Dictionary defines villain as "a cruelly malicious person who is involved in or devoted to wickedness or crime; scoundrel; or a character in a play, novel, or the like, who constitutes an important evil agency in the plot".

    Akainu is a "good guy" who is blinded by military protocol and an absolutism that anyone and anything that even shows a hint of dissidence must be destroyed in order to achieve what he believes is "peace". To him, the ideals of the Marines and the WG are essentially anything and everything without question. Compare that to Aokiji (who follows ideas but does things on his own and has a sense of feeling regarding right and wrong, such as the whole Robin scenario) or Kizaru (who is closer to Akainu than Aokiji but seems more or less to not take his job as seriously or is too slack to really appear a threat without the fact that he can zap you with light powers when he has to): those two are also of the Marines but do have concepts of judgement or of their own personality that prevent them from being absolute with their powers. Akainu is just so steadfast and loyal to the WG's word that it's his fault: he doesn't care about the scenario or circumstances, he just believes in a black and white world where one tiny scrap of black on a practically white person means that they are a threat and must be eliminated. (great, now I'm imagining him a tad like something created by Ayn Rand with the whole absolutism)

    Akainu believes himself to be good because of "justice" and his absolutism; but we see him as evil and a villain because he literally is taking the concepts of 'justice' way too far and does not appear to have a conscious to negotiate him to another side of things. He in a way is a personification of the ultimate result of the cruel means of the "Justice" felt by the Marines.

    (yeah sounded a bit rantish but just sort of wanted to explain a bit more about Akainu's status as a villain)
    Y'know, Negima WAS awesome...

    Sigh, and just when we returned back ontopic we get back to the offtopicness. Perhaps I should close this thread for a while.

    It was rather amusing! First Vivi was winning then Chimney, then they tied at 158 and at 162, then Chimney started winning again, then Vivi was in the front for a while and Chimney started catching up and that's when I went to bed. I woke up thinking that Chimney probably lost only to see that she had won! ^^ 'Twas one of the best matches in the Preliminaries imo, excitement-wise~ =)
