So this was first shared to me by a friend who upon being asked what Game of Thrones was all about, laughed and pulled out his phone.
After all that, I was kind of being convinced to start watching the show, but then I realized (after reading reviews everywhere and hearing my friends and teachers talk about it) that there is a whole lot of character death going on the show.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with character death, but when it’s happening “about every 3-4 episodes” (according to a friend), I become very wary. If I know I’m going to go on the feels train a million times, why get near the station at all? Right? Why willingly do that to yourself?
When I hear character death, the first thing that pops into my mind is Father Fujimoto in Blue Exorcist. And I totally back away.
Because in ONE episode, I was MADE to LOVE a character. In fact, from everyone I’ve showed the show to or who’ve seen it, they all agree that it doesn’t take more than ten minutes to love this character. The way Shiro is presented, it instantly makes you connect with him. And then…And then…And then….
The bastards killed him off in the second episode. What the fuck.
I felt that one so hard, I had to take a break. Everyone I’ve talked to agree that it was such steamroller move. A semi just ran over your heart. Father Fujimoto was ripped away from everyone. And boy did it make me depressed for DAYS.
So. Now whenever I hear character death (HEAVY character death), I question whether I should watch it or not.
But, anyways, I’d just like to show everyone a video where Peter Dinklage sums up Game Of Thrones in 45 seconds. And for those who do watch Game Of Thrones, is he right?
