Hey, I知 Cadtalfryn...but you can call me Cad. This will be my first recap and I would just like to quickly acknowledge all the time and hard work the regular recappers put into all of this. It takes a while. I知 from California but am currently in London so this will be going up a tad early, for what it痴 worth. It痴 late here and I知 pretty tired so I値l leave you with this ray of sunshine to brighten your evenings.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I窶况e become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they窶决e being such a butthole.

What窶冱 far more interesting to me is when a villain窶冱 motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn窶冲 necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he窶冱 easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I窶况e ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won窶冲 delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn窶冲 seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it窶冱 that good.

But hey, that窶冱 just how I feel. I窶冦 sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I窶冤l deal with that should the time come. I窶冦 sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month窶冱 Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
