@takashichea: @sickVisionz: It could be as well since Death gun is a weak Imitation of a Grim Reaper the horse would fit as well. But the SAO angle fits better.
Edit um no in some places kids would still say the same mean things even in the USA. Why because one should never underestimate kids being mean or politics being stupid.
Look it up. It's a case of Value Dissonance. If I read correctly, it's how different cultures perceive things differently. Like you guys mention, in the US, they look you as a hero. In Japan, guns are highly look down especially if you use them for good or bad. Her mother, therapists, and everyone didn't thank her and shunned her.
@takashichea: Depends on the part of the country in the states were talking about. Even in ol Kentucky I have known people who think if you use a gun to defend your self in your own home you should go to jail. Also known kids of people like that who think veterans who served in wars are hateful mean an evil people. Big country an it has all kinds of morals or lack their of.
Understand how different cultures perceive things differently. But their is no uniform culture here in the states. Melting pot an all that jazz.
An yeah it was almost creepy cam shots of Sinon. Believe that was to set up a couple romantic fight thing later on . If so then its a harem gag I would rather not see in SAO.
@Marshal Victory: If a little kid stopped a bank robbery in the US, they'd be seen as a hero. Sinoun might get teased for other stuff but she's not going to get teased because she was a 5-year-old marksman and a hero. Comparing that to a war veteran is flaky considering basically every incident of war involving the US is the US going into a foreign country and killing people vs Sinoun's situation which is conceptually the total opposite.
I thought this episode really sucked. Nothing interesting happening and the story development was Kirito making some logic leaps that to me felt like maybe someone realized that they were not going to be able to wrap the story up in the amount of episodes they had left unless they found a way to basically fast forward what everyone knew to a certain point. A bunch of discovery actually happened off screen and in the past. The jump to it must be two people felt like they pulled it out of a hat and within like 1 minute of thinking about it they seemed to have discovered every aspect of it. I also thought it was funny that Kirito seemed to think that Death Gun was bound to some honor system and that the one in the room couldn't kill Sinoun until the signal was given. I thought that was silly because obviously if he's already there and has everything he needs to kill her, he could kill her regardless of whatever was happening in the game.
@sickVisionz: Overall like a story on a news site yes. Locally or in school maybe not. Schools are not how you remember them as a kid bro. Examples like this http://www.fox10phoenix.com/story/23596179/2013/10/02/officer-dropping-off-daughter-at-school-asked an http://www.ijreview.com/2014/09/176381-army-officer-walking-daughter-school-rudely-told-cant-enter/ because hey that uniform may offend some one. Or even toy guns are seen as evil http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jun/10/calif-elementary-school-offers-toy-gun-buyback/ so its not out of the realm of possibility or even probability. Not even going to cite all the stories of kids being punished for finger guns ,pop tart gun, toast gun or just drawing guns in school. Just google school punished gun or click this really long link...
Even 30 some years ago I knew kids who all people who used a gun were bad people an said fairly mean an dumb things. An yes they would make fun of kids who's parents served in a war. So you might not be able to imagine it happening but I can easy enuff.
@Marshal Victory: Again, you're not citing references that pertain to this. You're citing military people getting harassed. Sinoun did not go to some foreign country and murder people. A violent criminal came onto her soil and she protected her family. Find examples a someone protecting their family and being teased for it. Not indirectly like trying to tie going to Vietnam as protecting their family but something direct where the threat comes to them, the kid saves the day, and is then teased for it.
I just don't think that would happen in the US. Or rather, you might have some people teasing but the overwhelming majority of people would see the kid as a hero. In SAO it was the opposite where the overwhelming majority of people viewed her as a bad person for saving the day. 99/100 times, stopping a robbery and saving the day will get you seen as a hero in the US, not a villain like in SAO. I don't get how this is even arguable between people who live in the US or grew up in the culture.
@sickVisionz: Adults would see her as a hero but not all people ( not just age wise) are adults. An what I linked to is in school kids are now taught to be afraid of guns an people who use them. It should not be hard to see in the current school environment even some teachers would have a problem with the kid. I mean they are afraid of kids who draw guns, make them with fingers, even ones who play with nerf guns out side of school.
Believe it or not its not the same as it was just 10 years ago. I mean its not arguable that kids will treat some one nice when they see some one being expelled for playing with a Hello kitty soap bubble gun! http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/family-protests-suspension-child-toy-gun-talk-article-1.1244389 .
Rationally an logically I would agree with you an @takashichea but these are not logical an rational times we live in. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/teen-suspended-preventing-school-bus-shooting-article-1.1278648
