The whole idea of them being persecuted racial minorities is something you got in your head because you perceived their ancestors as non human because they were depicted as shadowed when in fact they were shown even wearing normal clothes.
That, but also because the current Gen all had strange powers and features that regular humans don’t have, and unlike the manga it was never said these powers/features were given to them by Wiseman or the Black Crystal.
And no the shadowy monsters I was referring to in the flashback weren’t wearing clothes at all, rewatch that scene again. You’re thinking of the shadows of the current BMC who were shown right after, I’m talking about the depiction of their original ancestors who we see NQS and King Endymion fighting against.
In fact I would argue they may have not had the powers they had in the same capacity till they meant Wiseman.
You’re thinking of Manga/Crystal canon again, we know for a fact that the BMC in the 90’s anime didn’t get their powers from Wiseman because we see Saphir teleporting all over the place and he most certainly did not follow Wiseman nor did he wear the earrings.
Again once you start painting the Black Moon Clan as persecuted racial victims and Neo Queen Serenity as Hitler you are nothing but a anti fan.
So does that mean in your view anyone who has major problems with the writing/portrayal of the whole BMC vs Crystal Tokyo conflict in the 90’s anime is automatically an “anti fan?” …Kay.
FYI no one is claiming 90’s anime NQS is or was intended to be a literal Nazi, just that the writing
makes it come off that way through the fault of Toei, and if you can’t recognize the flaws in some of the 90’s anime writing then that’s on you.
Nobody’s trying to make the 90’s anime out to be some sort of racist product, we’re simply discussing on how clumsy flaws in the writing could make it seem
like that sometimes. No one’s deliberately deconstructing anything, just pointing how the writing itself
is leaning in that direction.
Tell me, if you really consider me to be an “anti-fan” (Seriously, that’s such a stupid concept to begin with
) who’s simply looking for problems, then why don’t you see me criticizing Manga NQS or Crystal Tokyo? Why am I not painting out Manga BMC as being in the right and “oppressed” by immortality? In fact I rightfully criticize anyone who does
try to make Manga NQS into some kind of dictator tyrant and praises the BMC’s actions. I’ve seen way more posts lately in the fandom of people sympathizing with Manga
BMC of all groups and saying “well, maybe they had a point,” when the writing makes clear that no, no they did not, they were a deranged extremist death cult and anyone who thinks otherwise is
deliberately perverting the narrative to suit their own political agenda.
The problems I point out with the 90’s anime take on the conflict though isn’t because I’m some “far-leftist who sees everything through the lens of race” (If I was explain why I don’t think Manga BMC vs NQS was a racial issue?) but because it’s writing wasn’t as clear concerning the nature of the conflict like the manga was
, and thus ends up making Crystal Tokyo look
