    Rhymes can often be really good, especially done well. Poe sort of freestyled kind of with his meter, but he did it wonderfully. A good example of excellent rhythm in prose is Lake's voice-logs in At the Mountains of Madness. It reminded me of Mordin, though it should have been the other way around.

    I wrote this about Death Note on a different forum.

Yet the characters are caricatures and their responses are hilariously overblown for the sake of drama; see the infamous potato chip scene. In an anime that focuses on the relationships between people and the extent to which the antihero exploits them, simplifying the psychology of the characters only damages the story and makes it less believable. For that matter, while Light is the best-written character in the story, he's a very by-the-book antihero: his own narcissism causes him to fall from a position of power. There's little ambiguity in the series' portrayal about whether what Light is doing is right: he's evil, that's that. Ambiguity is limited to fan conjecture. Death Note is a guilty pleasure of mine because it has the ingredients of a fantastic anime, but it's marred by poor execution.

    Which is in a lot of ways what I said. I think Eva and Death Note are both really exemplary anime because they not only show very clearly the weaknesses in writing many, if not most, anime (and video games) exhibit, but also because they are so blatant that in a lot of ways they are like the Star Wars prequels or Dominic Deegan; they teach by way of counter-example. They show how not to do what they are trying to do and fail so spectacularly in the trying that they clearly illustrate what is being done wrong.
