And suddenly it turned out that Hope talking with Gilgamesh wasn't such a cracky idea (I'm so punny), and it's actually a really important scene and shit goes down and Hope and Gilgamesh get to talk about their ffffeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllliiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnngggggggggssssssssssssss.

Gilgamesh did not smile. "Hope Estheim, of the village of Palumpolum, you smell of death and quiet desperation. I have met many men like you -- men who desired a better world, who fought for it with every fiber of their being. You will not be deterred from this effort."

Hope shook his head. "Gilgamesh, of the village of Genji, my world is populated with many men just as you -- great men, motivated by love or duty or honor, who pledge themselves to the unworthy because they believe that what they do is necessary. And I have killed them all."

Oh, that's normal. I do that all the time. If it were reversed, I would probably be more concerned. And envious. That never happens to me.

I read the book this year... it was awesome, but it occurs to me that Gilgamesh is the epitome of Manpain and sexism. The only time he is a worthy human being is when his best bud ever is alive.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the story. The above fact simply makes me laugh hysterically.
