How did a series based on such a silly premise make me cry?

Post  magic-rhyme on Fri Jun 04, 2010 11:54 pm

I was too busy with my Spring Semester classes to watch episodes 8, 9, and 10 of TWBB when they first came out.

I just saw episode #9.

You people actually got me tearful, capping the unending misery of the characters with the death of the Pokemon Trainer.

Wow.

You gonna be a regular here, or are you just stopping by to share the love?

And I teared up too.

I was a semi-regular poster until classes took up too much of my time.

I'm most impressed by what these guys managed to do!

Yeah the final episode will be gut wrenching, and awesome. Probably both at the same time.

Also, if you were here before why not use your old username? Neutral

Glad it had such an impact on you, bro. I think that the death of Red was one of the series' strongest moments.

Guh! Gee Surge, Spoilers!

Heh, just kidding. Ill admit Red dying was pretty powerful, but nothing from the series got a bigger reaction out of me than...

OK, spoiler here. Guy who hasn't seen 10 (Or read how it ends) Don't click this box.
Spoiler:
When the Peach Marionette showed up. Soooooo creepy.

Spoiler:
Red's death must have been pretty tough on the girl. I did well up a slight bit. He'll never be forgotten, we know it.

Now, I have to admit, I agree that such an idea caught me off guard by being really good, but there's something I just wanted to point out.

Spoiler:
After seeing the doll people and having Luigi refer to them as 'trophies', followed by vague references to 'them', I was getting the feeling that 'them' was referring to the players.

Perhaps it would've been too much of a fourth-wall breaker there, but I genuinely thought that the show was taking the piss out of the people who enjoy playing SSB, or to more accurately describe it, watching multiple characters - most, but not all of which belong to Nintendo) beat the living stupid out of each other. Especially when you consider that trophies are the MAIN REWARD when you play SSB games.

Anyone else have any deep or clever thoughts that were completely wrong about this series? Because I had many others, too. I'm just too boring to listen to any more than I've already said.

I know what you mean. I teared up a bit too. Red was awesome. The beginning of the episode when Mario was putting on the cape gave me a weird (hard to explain but nothing gay) feeling too. That was a very emotional episode.

Because it gets into the tortured psyche of a lot of the characters. They're losing what they hold dear and they're trying to fight for what they've got left. And when you see a lot of the will power of the characters and realize what they're going through, you just get so friggin' sad Crying or Very sad .
