DAMN, has it been a while! But it was worth the wait, or at least I think so. Not just for the comic update, but for the layout update, as well! I said you guys would be seeing some surprises till the end of this year, and I wasn't kidding.
So, feel free to browse this remade "Fontes' Rants", as it features two new sections: Overview and Cast. I'm still doing some tweaks on those, but they're good enough to show off.
Now, on to the rant... Movies, TV series, animes, videogames... all sorts of media has this sort of thing. A rather badass character (main character or not is optional) gets tossed into a dangerous situation, of which he promised to return alive to his beloved one.
However, thanks to good old Murphy
, these guys most of the times end up dead. Two prime examples of this are Kamina from "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann" and Jiraya from "Naruto". They're both very likeable characters, and they BOTH ended up dead because of a promise that related them with having sex with a female character. And no, I don't give a crap if I'm spoiling you! XD
So, yeah... A plot device that's been used too many times, and isn't really funny anymore.
