14. "RE: Characters you'd love to see in NF (3)"
In response to message #13
I suspect they were referring to StrikerS, and/or the manga. StrikerS has a despicably cruel villain (we're talking "makes-Akio-look-like-a-nice-guy" levels of evil) who spends a solid 12 episodes abusing the characters they've spent the first 12 episodes building up. The manga, meanwhile, keeps having characters pick up the Idiot Ball and then getting hospitalized for it.
If you were going to investigate the franchise, I would recommend starting (and ending) with A's, the second season. It has the best representation of the characters and the least amount of soul-crushing.
