No, makes perfect sesne. The Linker they used in season 1 was absolute garbage. Adding to that was the fact that they were beeing "tuned" by Fine. While Tsubasa was compatible with a relic Kanade was not. The only reason she was even able to active it was because she was taking massive ammounts of linker. Ver invented a much better linker and actually DID tune Maria & the rest. Also, the whole "Swan song" thing is a bit of a miss translation. It was never meant to be deadly.

Did it even shorten his life? I read it as it'd harm him in the long run (like hurting his joints or something) rather than just cutting years off his life.
That or if he keeps using it it'll eventually go wrong and kill him.

Nah, back when it was still new, using it puts extra strain on his body, which effectively does shorten his life.
After the time-skip, he no longer has that problem, though Gear 4 and 5, or whatever probably gets something similar.

Sucks how it was basically made absolutely pointless.

It's not the only one to do that.
I have to somewhat respect Black Clover for their way, MC kept his non-magic but gained some magical weapons. His latest power boost was kinda shit though, his lack of magic powers apparently gives him an anti-magic demon thing. The only upside to it is he told the demon to fuck off because he wanted to win with his own strength.

I would prefer it done in a non shitty way, instead of going from "killing him would be wrong" to child murderer in an instant.

When I was younger I had a friend that had this crazy theory that Ichigo from Bleach would become consumed by the Hollow and would kill all of his friends, and then there would be a new season where the spirits of his friends became Shinigamis and tried to stop him. Yeah, yeah, it was retarded, but I mean something like that.

At least he falls over for a short while when the strain is enough (like working out so much you simply loose muscle control), but I wish there was more consequence to it. After EL it worked, wasn't moving, but then they had 3+ days to chill. Make the tension work by having them run the fuck away and hide properly. WG had 3 days to send CP0 or an admiral to spank them at W7, and in that time aokiji was presumably just chilling nearby.

Still the strain/life lost needs to show results, it's a horribly cliche piece of shit when implied consequences are never shown.

>character uses self harm thing

>>
>>153487115

Considering everything else, maybe.

Characters forget spells they used/seen before. We're not given mana bars so we don't know when/if a character is out of mana because it's pure plot contrivance. Characters learn new spells so easily most of the time (look hand sign, now apply mana and go), narudo learned his signature in minutes yet failed at others.

I'd say the combat is more inconsistent than character being outright incompetent. An incompetent writer.
>>
>>153489922
It makes more sense if a move like that just hurt you bad in the process like the Gates from early nardo so if you fucked up and it didn't work or couldn't finish the job you'd be a lot weaker afterwards.

This whole "strain on your body"/"it will shorten your lifespan" really is the worst.
Especially the latter, it is just a cheap way for the author to avoid actually delivering on it. It's vague enough to encompass anything between "well, you'll only get to live to 93 instead of 100 years" (which is never shown or relevant at all) and "MC drops dead at the end of the story".

Or you could just give up on the one-dimensional idea of strength and have the hero face enemies with a variety of strengths and weaknesses, none of them stronger than any other and make the fights actually interesting.

I think the best way to execute(wew) this trope is to slowly build up on the user to avoid the unspoken technique, not yet revealing that it's a suicide move, then finally execute it when there is something worth winning more than their lives and reveal to the cast that the person is dying, not coming back ever.

This is why anime pacifists get a bad rep. They're more concerned with the image of goodliness rather than grapple with moral conflicts. Like if you let this bad guy go, and he continues to rape, murder and torture, you then ARE just as bad as him. Because then, your desire to keep your hands clean is more important than the citizens you "care" about.

Untrue. In the books, pretty much all characters die only after their character arcs have reached a logical conclusion. The show writers on the other hand prefer to kill off for shock value, including the characters who are very much alive in the original story. Also:

Fuck off with that. You know exactly who im refering to when im say 'bad guys', in each arc.
Nedd gets too close to some uncomfy truths? Just fucking kill him
Oberon gets, again, too close to some uncomfy truths? Just fucking kill him
Robb gets too close to victory? Just fucking kill him
You fucked up and killed a character you shouldnt have? Just bring her back as an actual zombie.
Brienne starts to change Jamie's mind about the whole situation? Just fucking kill her. Actually make the zombie kill her.
The North is getting out of hand? Just fucking kill them. Snow too, for good measure. Make sure to make it all very subtle so you can bring him back later a la Stoneheart.
Every single arc in soiaf ends with someone or something very close to changing something important, then they die. Then the trigger for any progress is just "hey this thing is happening now".

Martin is a fucking hack.

He had also fucked up almost every potential alliance in the process. He had no future.

Oberon had no plan and was plain mad, even according to his brother. Once again, the guy doomed himself.

Robb had fucked up all his alliances and wouldn't have won either way. It was just a matter of time.
>UnCat
Not a person anymore, not to mention the zombie lore had been well established beforehand.

In short, you get the picture. Everybody who have died so far had made multiple fatal mistakes that led to it.

Bleach unfortunately still had the massive foreshadowing Aizen did at the end of Deicide when he was about to say Ichigo is part Quincy before Isshin interrupted him. Chapter 423 ended Bleach 1 perfectly, with the Lost Agent arc being the new "school days arc", but nips wanted shounen battle instead of the mystery thriller thing Fullbring had going on, and you know what happened.

I mean, the writing isn't top notch yeah it's pretty linear on that side.
But the battles don't drag on, there's no ennemy monologues and the unlikely plans that still work don't do so smoothly.
I mean the railgun episode did work against all odds but the pilots suffering was pretty legit.

Identical twins are not actually identical. Epigenetics and gene expression ensure that even organisms with the same DNA end up quite different.

there's a korean manga that /a/ really likes where the villain becomes all powerful and even kills the protagonist, he only gets killed because of a technicality about the way the protag died

But she isn't? She's the protagonist, but the game never really pretends that what she's doing isn't unquestionably evil.
