    my best friend is really into dandy; i wasn't sure what to think at first, but then i decided to just accept the absurdity and go with it, and it grew on me quite a bit. i haven't seen more than half of the episodes, however.

    i love the soundtrack to samurai champloo (think i was listening to the artist and ran across it from there), but i haven't seen any of it. *takes mental note

    ah, i love major and batou. connection, understanding, mutual respect. that scene on the boat in the movie comes to mind. i can see a similarity to roy and riza's relationship.

    did you ever get a chance to see gits:arise, btw? i think i mentioned it to you before; it's on netflix. i'm not sure if the fourth part is available yet. i think some fans don't care for it, but i think the characters work well as younger versions than what we've known before now.

    so i'm working through bebop with the kids (i've seen most before but not tried to really watch it all in a focused way). i have steins:gate and spice and wolf here. any thoughts on which to start next?

    you've given me a lot to think about.

    you know, beyond the difficulty of typing fictional characters, our conversation brings up something else i've had on my mind. the other day, someone asked for help in typing their boss, and another responded that her description was humanistic/heavily nf-oriented, and therefore it was difficult to get an objective view of the man. probably i'm primarily focused on the inner workings and deepest values of characters over actions/decisions, because that reflects my own way of thinking. i'm typing through the lens of my own tendencies.

    for example, i see scar's rage as fi; come to think of it, it could just as easily be interpreted as fe, an expression of the pain of his people. because i think he was as much that as himself.

    ...on a more shallow note, i've noticed the fandom likes to point out every hint of a possible secret romance between mustang and hawkeye. therefore, it's with particular disappointment that i'll note a dire lack of good roy/riza fanfics. lol

    just read your comments from while i was writing. it's slow going on my phone.

    well, you make a really good point. scar is definitely a man of action, good in the moment.

    i REALLY love that scene, the battle/conversation/dance between bradley and scar. (i liked bradley as well!) what a beautiful mirror those two made, and that's part of the brilliance of the series for me. watching it through the second time, i kept noticing parallel/contrasting themes and characters.

    Primitive art can be beautiful.



    It's far more intuitive than the majority of modern art.

    i guess i saw him as an istj because of his conviction about alchemy, and because he's so legalistic about it, at least to start. i assumed he was willing to bend his own rules because he was driven and also considered himself a lost cause - he could be god's wrath and destruction because he was himself beyond salvation, maybe almost a martyr. of course, he also justified it (legalism again) because he was not actually creating.

    i liked him because i understood that pure fi rage, and because he really believed in his ideals. i thought he was all the more interesting because the story challenged him, forced him to reconsider and evolve, and ultimately he was better able to serve his people and be a real means of justice than before. he's more complex than you might have expected in the beginning. (also he looks cool, lol!)

    dunno why i'm interested in rage characters btw; i think there's a similar draw to wolverine. i think i like characters who appear broken but can heal, maybe? and i like characters who have more under the surface.

    i always think of mike from breaking bad as the archetypal istp, and i can definitely see spike that way as well. since i'm only halfway through bebop, forgive me for failing to notice if spike is a counter-example to this but - do istps have ideals and convictions the way an istj would? i mean, mike values his granddaughter and that's about it. he's got ideas about the way to be good at what he does, but i'm not sure he really believes in anything. and i think scar definitely has his faith and his sense of how dreadfully his people were wronged.

    other favorites, tho i have given less thought to these and can't elaborate as easily... mustang because he's so damned clever! olivier armstrong for her toughness, charisma, and the fact that she's definitely not a conventional feminine character. envy was another i find interesting, and i've had a harder time saying why - again, i think it's a surface vs. depth thing. and finally, i really liked greeling. ling was amusing, greed was cool and oddly logical about his selfishness. together they made an interesting whole, and again, they evolved.

    Doubt it. It's a struggle for me to remember what I had for dinner last night, never mind my prior Friends list. As people post, this might hopefully trigger memory.

    Your dogs say the sweetest things about you, admittedly some of the motivation is to get the treats, but trust my judgment--their affection is real.

    well, you'll have to keep in mind that i'm relatively new to anime, in the sense that it's only been a few years that i've been actively looking for some to watch. i mean, i remember the original gits and akira from back in the day, started watching myazaki when ponyo came out. but it's been maybe three years since i decided to learn more.

    this means, for example, that i purchased fmab on a friend's recommendation and i've seen it through twice (the kids LOVED it as well!), but i've never seen fma.

    ...did it take me long enough to make that point?

    off the top of my head, i really loved scar. i wrote a lot of stuff here because i didn't understand your post at first - i was confusing your assessment of spike and your commentary on scar. so you think he's istp also? *thinking....

    Do you recall that I took a month break from INTJf? Wasn't sure I was coming back so I cleaned up my account, Friends list and all.

    also, i never did respond regarding bebop - i think your typing makes a lot of sense. i did think jet is probably istj. you know, that's a type that seems to get a bad rap around here, but jet's a good example of pretty awesome istj.

    btw, i really like scar from fmab; i think he's an istj as well. i like that he's a good example of both the positive and negative aspects.

    just curious - do you think they weren't compatible based on his statements, or due to type? i assume the former; you've never struck me as someone who would consider certain types incompatible across the board.

    Oh, thank you. Good lord, I never would have guessed that. Last thing I saw him in was Die Hard, the original :D

    You are better looking, and likable--your dogs told me you are

    It's my pleasure I enjoy playing around with symbols. I'm familiar with Appleseed and how you think (thanks to the debates), which makes it a little easier. I started teasing out the symbols before but it was getting a bit long and chaotic, so I opted to cut to the chase this time. When the thread went quiet I had an "Oh shit" moment and thought I may have offended, so I'm glad you found it interesting and useful. Dreams are fascinating stuff.
